  • How a tiny, rural Alabama drug unit seizes millions from Mexican cartels

    11/04/2017 2:26:10 PM PDT · by boycott · 12 replies ^ | 11-4-17 | Connor Sheets
    A lucrative battle against Mexican drug cartels is being fought on the sides of an interstate in three of Alabama's more rural counties. Civil asset forfeiture has come under fire in recent years, as some law enforcement agencies across the country have deployed the tactic in ways that have been widely criticized as abusive. But a small drug task force operating in Greene, Marengo and Sumter counties - collectively, Alabama's 17th Judicial Circuit - has leveraged the practice to take millions of dollars worth of cash, drugs and other property off the street in recent years, much of which they...

    Ay, ay, ay, ay! As Mexico’s security situation continues to deteriorate -- along with public trust in law enforcement -- some police officers in the country are trading in their guns for guitarrónes in an effort to help improve the image of the force. A group of 21 federal police officers, who also just happen to be professional musicians, have formed a mariachi band in order to show the human side of law enforcement and break down widespread mistrust in the force -- a chronic issue in a country plagued by the underreporting of crimes. Playing one of the country’s...

    Dennis Prager reads from a piece entitled, "White-Owned Restaurants Shamed for Serving Ethnic Food: It's Cultural Appropriation" ( It is another sick story of the Segregationist [racist] spirit of the Left that has been with the Democrat Party since they were founded. Here is an excerpt from the piece: ________________ If you're a white person, you have no business running a restaurant that serves Asian, Latin, African, or Indian cuisine. That's according to the creators of a "white-owned appropriative restaurants" list, which accuses several Oregon establishments of engaging in cultural appropriation—a tool of "a white supremacist culture." The list,...

    I attended a funeral recently where the repast included an amazing Cream of Crab Soup, and I wanted to find a recipe. Since I'm a Marylander and love their crabcakes, Phillips is my first go-to for 'crab anything'. On their website, I found Shirley Phillips' recipe: you are taking care of a sick person who is trying to get his appetite back, you often wind up cooking things you don't normally eat; and instead of cooking double meals all the time you just wind up throwing in the towel and grabbing whatever you can here and there. Since Thanksgiving,...

    Now that Donald Trump has beaten Hillary Clinton to become the 45th president of the United States, one of his campaign promises has been an immediate hot point of attention, namely the wall between Mexico and the United States. But how would it be financed? Mexico is hardly likely to fund it and said as much.So, could a crypto currency solution come to the rescue and help address matters around the 2,000 miles long border between the US and Mexico? Different types of defenses now span about 670 miles of it, so there would clearly be more work to be...

    Hillary Clinton’s running mate Sen. Tim Kaine was a broken record, continuously referencing Donald Trump’s comments on illegal aliens from Mexico and trying to make it sound like he had disparaged all Mexicans. But Indiana Gov. Mike Pence inadvertently had the line of the night when he mocked how often Kaine went to that well. “Senator you whipped out that Mexican thing again,” Pence said in retort to one of Kaine’s many references to the topic.

    Hispanic men will not vote for Hillary Clinton for President. Specifically: Mexican American men will not vote for Hillary Clinton for President. They might vote for her in a primary because of possible lack of any macho Democrat to run against her for the nomination, but it is not imaginable that the Mexican American men of California, Texas, New Mexico, Nevada and Colorado could vote for her.

    Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said on Tuesday he was willing to meet with Donald Trump, months after comparing the Republican presidential candidate to Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini. "Yes, I would meet with him," Pena Nieto said, referring to Trump in a pre-taped television interview broadcast on Tuesday night. "I have never met him. I can't agree with some of the things he has said, but I will be absolutely respectful and will seek to work with whomever becomes the next president of the United States."

    MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico's president apologized on Monday for a 2014 scandal involving a $7 million mansion bought by his wife from a company that won lucrative contracts with his administration. President Enrique Pena Nieto had reacted crossly at the time to those who criticized the purchase, saying there were "countless versions and falsehoods" surrounding the story. First lady Angelica Rivera also reacted angrily at the time, denying she had done anything wrong. She claimed she was using money she earned during her career as an actress. But she later returned the mansion, which she had been paying for...

According to Orlando NBC affiliateWESH-TV, two members of the Orlando Police Department were watching a swan and her babies along Lake Eola. At that point, Sor Velez walked between the officers and the mother swan. The swan reached up toward Velez in what officers describe to be an effort to defend her babies. Velez then walked away, only to turn back around and punch the swan in the head before trying to run away. He was caught by the...

    The Donald & The La Raza Judge Pat Buchanan Jun 07, 2016 Before the lynching of The Donald proceeds, what exactly was it he said about that Hispanic judge? Stated succinctly, Donald Trump said U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is presiding over a class-action suit against Trump University, is sticking it to him. And the judge's bias is likely rooted in the fact that he is of Mexican descent. Can there be any defense of a statement so horrific? Just this. First, Trump has a perfect right to be angry about the judge's rulings and to question his motives....

    Two Expats Living in Mexico ^ | May 30, 2016 | Qroo Paul
    Mexico has gone above and beyond to protect their citizens in the job market. There are several jobs, by law, that only a Mexican citizen can hold, and in some cases, that person has to be a natural born Mexican. Obviously many political positions have this requirement (e.g. president); however, Mexico has extended this to some jobs you would not expect. I have compiled a list of the ones that surprised me the most. Most of these were taken from the Federal Labor Law (Ley Federal del Trabajo).
