Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/21/2012 9:49:22 AM

DEVELOPING: Jon Hammar, the U.S. Marine imprisoned in Mexico on a gun charge, will be released today, his mother told Fox News Radio. Olivia Hammar said the judge hearing Hammar´s case issued a ruling in his favor and that her son is to be released at a time on Friday yet to be announced. No more details were available. Hammar, 27, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, has been stuck in a notorious, drug cartel-controlled prison just 15 miles south of the U.S. border since Aug. 13, after he crossed into Mexico and declared an antique shotgun

Wonderful news, Merry Christmas to him, and to his family.
PS
I am still not going to Cozumel in 2013.
Mexico and the people from that country do not show respect for America.
There are many other wonderful places for vacations.

Coincidental with the call for a tourism boycott? Possibly the only thing that scares the "land of the shake-down artist". They can´t rob or extort you if you don´t cross the border. Like the cops robbing the downed private jet, many Mexicans have thievery in their genes.

Just read this and have a couple of thoughts.
1. I´ll celebrate when I know he´s safe. When he´s on American soil and totally free. I wouldn´t put it past our own authorities to make under-handed deals that take his rights away from him.
2. Soft boycott of Mexico for the rest of my life.
3. Why the heck was more attention not given to this story by right leaning bloggers?
4. To the mainstream media this never happened. They didn´t report it so it just didn´t happen.
5. When someone finally (after months) asked the Whitehouse about this publicly, Hammar gets released. Tells me the WH turned a blind eye because they don´t care.

I travel to Mexico frequently and disagree with many postings here. The Mexican´s I work with are smart and hard working, but I can tell you they are really POed about fast and furious. I was there when the story first broke. If anything the treatment of this marine was a slap back at America for F & F. The gun was perfectly legal to take across the border with the proper paperwork and everyone in Mexico knows that.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. There are hundreds of Americans still being held in Mexican jails(mostly on trumped up charges).We need the State Dept to look into all of them, not just those that make the news. We cruise to some Mexico ports but never get off the ship till we reach another country.

Great news to be sure, but let´s be careful about the Mexico bashing. Yes, they are inherently corrupt and unable to support their population... They deserve a heap of criticism for their failure as a state. But the corruption has been greatly multiplied and the horror of Mexican ultra-violence on a terrorism level is financed, lock stock and barrel by AMERICAN drug users giving billions every year to the Mexican drug lords. Mexico´s a mess and we´re, as a nation, by no means an innocent bystander.

Large numbers of Americans, especially those with less education, continue to have difficulty finding work, undermining arguments that there is a “labor shortage” and need for increased immigration, a new study from the Center for Immigration Studies finds. The report, provided exclusively to Breitbart News, shows that the employment situation of American workers has gradually declined over the past 14 years since 2000. The number of working age adults who are not working has risen relatively quickly in the last 15 years. In 2000, 35.8 million native-born Americans between 18 and 65 years weren´t working. In 2006, the number was

The White House issued veto threats on Wednesday for a pair of bills reining in executive overreach that debuted and were debated on the House floor. The Executive Needs to Faithfully Observe and Respect Congressional Enactments of the Law (ENFORCE the Law) Act of 2014 puts in place a procedure that would expedite the ability of the House or Senate to sue the executive branch for failure to faithfully execute the laws. Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), a former prosecutor who introduced the bill, said a three-judge panel at the federal district court level followed by direct appeal to the Supreme

Jeopardy! champ Arthur Chu, whose all-over-the-board style angered many fans of the long-running game show, finally lost on Wednesday after an 11-game winning streak that saw him rack up nearly $300,000.

CONCORD, N.H. — In October 2006, John Breckinridge, a Manchester police officer, saw his partner, Michael Briggs, shot to death in an alley. It was a searing moment that not only cost the Briggs family a father and husband, it also sent Mr. Breckinridge into a spiral of depression and doubt. He became obsessed with the suspect, Michael Addison, and wanted nothing more than for him to be put to death. When the death penalty came up for debate a few years ago in New Hampshire, Mr. Breckinridge testified in favor of it. But after a spiritual journey that renewed

A campaign finance watchdog is raising alarms over what it says were a series of misleading campaign donation websites run by the Republican Party. On Wednesday, Citizens for Ethics and Responsibility in Washington (CREW) filed a complaint with the Office of Congressional Ethics against OregonRep. Greg Walden, chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), for authorizing the websites. The websites in question appear to be standard fundraising appeals for Democratic congressional candidates, who are prominently pictured. But the true destination of the contributions and the sponsor of the website is hidden in the fine print — the NRCC. “Rep.

The vote was 233-181 in the Republican-led House as GOP lawmakers excoriated Obama for multiple changes to his 4-year-old health care law, steps he´s taken to allow young immigrants to remain in the United States and the administration´s resistance to defend the federal law banning gay marriage.

Republican David Jolly edged out Democrat Alex Sink to win Tuesday´s special election in Florida´s 13th Congressional District. Jolly will fill out the term of his former boss, Republican Rep. Bill Young, who died in October. Young, first elected to Congress in 1970, was the longest-serving Republican in the House.

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is laying the foundation for his presidential bid in concrete and steel. First, forget about Jeb Bush unless you want to hand Hillary eight years in the White House. The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota.

How would you feel if a police officer you knew for 20 years told you that if an order were issued to confiscate your guns, he wouldn’t hesitate to “kick your door in”? This was the precisely the experience Connecticut resident, Navy veteran and former firefighter John Cinque had after commenting on his state’s 2013 violation of the Second Amendment.

A report released Tuesday by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform asserted that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights. Lerner continues to stonewall California Rep. Darrell Issa’s committee, pleading the Fifth again in a divisive Oversight hearing last Wednesday convened to get to the bottom of the IRS’ improper targeting of conservative groups between 2010 and 2012. Oversight member Rep. Jim Jordan told The Daily Caller that the committee is “moving” toward holding Lerner in contempt of Congress to compel her to testify. “I think that’s where we’re moving,” Jordan said. “I think that’s where this is headed.”

With nearly all of the votes counted Tuesday night, Jolly had 48.5 percent of the vote to Alex Sink’s 46.7 percent. Libertarian Lucas Overby had 4.8 percent.

Madison — Police arrested six people believed to be involved in what they´re calling one of the most brutal crimes in recent memory. Madison police say three men planned a home invasion, but broke into the wrong home on Quincy Avenue on the north side around 6 a.m. on February 23. Police say the suspects were aware it was not the intended home, but they proceeded to violently attack the two victims who had been sleeping.
