    Gateway Pundit ^ | July 4, 2015 | Jim Hoft
    Donald Trump has stirred up controversy in recent days for claiming “rapists” and “killers” are migrating over the United States’ southern border. Univision and NBC Universal cut ties with Trump this past week, refusing to air the “Miss Universe” pageant he partially owns as a result, and Macy’s announced Wednesday it was also discontinuing his clothing line. But Trump was right. Rapists are crossing over into the US southern border. And officials are finding rape trees. Women’s undergarments hang in a tree near the US border.Latina.com reported on this tragic development in 2009: “From beheading to kidnappings, there seems to...

    Sen. Ted Cruz continues to defend Donald Trump on immigration. Cruz (R-Tex.), in an interview with "Meet the Press" praised Trump for talking about immigration. Trump has made inflammatory comments about Mexican immigrants, leading Macy's and Univision to sever ties with Trump. Cruz, speaking during his book tour in Marietta, GA., said he likes Trump, whom Cruz said is "bold" and "brash." Cruz said he's not going to attack Trump. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-politics/wp/2015/07/03/ted-cruz-continues-to-defend-donald-trump-on-immigration/

    Donald Trump has found a TV home for his Miss USA beauty pageant with cable network Reelz, after both NBC and Univision Communications bailed on plans to air the program following the mogul’s remarks about Latino immigrants. The pact is a small victory for Trump, who in the past week has lost his deals with NBC, Univision and Macy’s. The companies cut their ties to the real-estate developer, GOP presidential hopeful and erstwhile TV personality after he called Mexican and other Hispanic immigrants “killers and rapists” who are “bringing crime” into the U.S. in a speech.

    Via RCP, it’s Jorge Ramos, a guy so deep in the tank for illegal immigration that even other members of America’s pro-amnesty media are known to grumble about it. The most revealing thing about this clip is how little his argument depends on the particular hardships being suffered by kids in Central America. They face gangs, drugs, and violence if they’re sent back, he allows, but there’s no sense that this is some unique crisis requiring a more forgiving policy than might otherwise be advisable. He’s making a straight-up argument, essentially, that if a kid makes it across the border,...

    As news breaks that 57 more Fast and Furious weapons have been found in Mexico, it is also being confirmed that some of those weapons were used to slaughter 14 Mexican teenagers and wound 12 more near Ciudad Juarez. According to reports, a group of armed commandos parked outside a birthday party attended by high school and college students on January 30, 2010, and opened fire with some of the weapons which had been smuggled across the border during the Fast and Furious operation.

    Univision’s new documentary “Fast and Furious: Arming the Enemy” is a must watch. In approximately 45-minutes, investigative journalists at the American Spanish language cable news channel give the viewer a real sense of the tragic repercussions the fatally flawed gunrunning operation has had on the Mexican people. Here are just a few of the documentary’s key findings, courtesy of Gun Owners of America (which did its own analysis of the film): * There have been other Americans -- in addition to U.S. Border Agent Brian Terry -- who were murdered by Fast & Furious guns, such as Air Force medic...

    On Tuesday, Congressman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and Senator Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) pressed the Department of Justice to provide information about 57 Fast and Furious weapons found at Mexican crime scenes, which were first exposed by a Univision News special investigation on September 30. In a letter obtained by Univision News and sent to Attorney General Eric Holder, Issa and Grassley inquired about the previously unreported Fast and Furious guns that were linked to violent crimes and featured in the Univision News report. The letter pays special attention to three firearms connected to an ATF gun-tracing operation that were used in...

    Finally, the media is showing the staggering human cost of Operation Fast & Furious. But the news broadcast wasn’t in English. Sunday, Univision, the Spanish language television network, ran a program showing the faces and stories of dozens of people who have been killed in Mexico with guns the Obama administration supplied to Mexican drug gangs. One Mexican interviewed summed up the theme: “Americans aren’t moved by pain beyond their border, only with their own.” Americans are now getting some partial answers about Operation Fast & Furious. The recent report by Justice Department's Inspector General identified Jason Weinstein as the...

  • No Coverage at the Wires as Univision Exposes Wider Scope, Sickening Carnage of 'Fast

    10/02/2012 5:40:45 PM PDT · by chessplayer · 6 replies
    As of 2 PM ET, various searches at the national web site of the Associated Press, aka the Administration's Press (on "furious"; on "Univision"), Reuters ("furious"; "fast and furious"; "univision"), and United Press International ("furious"; "Univision") indicate that the three wire services have given no coverage to reports from Univision exposing the wider geographic scope and far more fatal fallout of the deliberately untrackable guns-to-cartels operation known as Fast and Furious. I wonder how the leading U.S. Spanish network's broadcasters and audience feel about getting the same treatment the establishment press gives center-right blogs?

    Scandal: A Univision special documents how weapons provided by the administration to Mexican drug cartels repeatedly have taken a deadly toll as families on both sides of the border wait for true answers and accountability. We may never know how many deaths, kidnappings and other criminal activities were facilitated by more than 2,000 weapons that were allowed to "walk" into Mexico under the Obama administration's Fast and Furious program, but a Univision special aired Sunday exposes more of the carnage. The special, put together by Univision's investigative unit and aired as a special edition of Univision's "Aqui y Ahora" ("Here...

    When Mexican authorities took Juarez drug cartel carnage king Jose Antonio Acosta Hernandez — better known as “El Diego” — into custody, he had weapons from Operation Fast and Furious on his person, the English-language transcript of the Spanish-language television network Univision’s special investigation into the scandal shows. “According to investigations, ‘El Diego’ forms the link between this massacre and Fast and Furious,” an anchor read on air in Spanish Sunday evening, referring to two different mass killings drug cartel operatives used Fast and Furious weapons to conduct as Univision reported. “When he [El Diego] was captured in Chihuahua in...
