How To Take On The Deadly Drug Cartels
That Run The U.S.-Mexico Border

Original Article

After nine U.S. citizens were killed in the Mexican border state of Sonora in November, President Donald Trump threatened to label cartels terrorist organizations. When it came to it, however, he holstered the executive pen and backpedaled out of the saloon at the request of Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who desires to embrace the cartels with “abrazos no balazos”—hugs not bullets. Now comes word that a 13-year-old Oklahoma girl visiting Mexico with her family has been killed in yet another cartel ambush on a long and lonely stretch of highway just south of Falcon Heights, Texas. In the background of these recent tragedies has been

Ummm - - like - - maybe if free citizens were allowed to pursue happiness by ingesting any substance they chose to ingest - - there wouldn't be any "deadly drug cartels"? Because purchasing narcotic drugs would be no different than purchasing a sack of potatoes. Again I say to any Prohibitionists out there - - the "war on drugs" is nearly fifty years old - - and addiction and crime are worse than ever - - so - - please describe when and how the "war on drugs" will end. Any takers?

Bad idea, #1. At one time, I was leaning in that direction, but frankly, the toll of dead and zombied Americans isn't worth it.

#1, you have a point, but only if those druggies who cause accidents or otherwise are responsible for overdoses, crimes, broken families youth addicts, etc, are punished for their deeds. And not with a slap on the wrist or "Don't do it again" remonstrance, but jail time or some other appropriate punishment that doesn't have to be financed by the taxpayers. Eg hospitals, halfway houses or therapy, etc, that I don't want to pay for. If these free citizens choose to screw up their lives and others, let them pay.

My first instinct is to disagree with the Libertarians on legalization. It's very hard for me to come up with good counter arguments, however. So here I am, ambivalent as ever.

FTA: Ralph DeSioa, a CBP spokesman in San Diego, recently told reporters that the significant decrease in drug seizures at the border was the result of not enough personnel. Although some checkpoints “weren’t completely mothballed,” they “weren’t as operational as the years before,” he said. “We had to minimize those operations to deal with the crisis along the southwest border.” And there's the joke on the public. This is top priority stuff that gets abandoned to follow political winds. Illegals are hot; drugs not. Like #1, this is really self-policing. I have no sympathy for the users...who are volunteers and pay for the privilege. Sorry for their families and all that...those are the fortunes of life, sorry to say. But eventually things will even out. Sell it over the counter and tax it. Good enough for our great-grandparents day. Demand will eventually fall, Darwin will see to that over time. This other stuff has no proven efficacy - freezing accounts, seizing assets...small change and just the price of doing bigger business.

SAN ANTONIO — Immigration officials deported a documented member of MS-13 to El Salvador Thursday more than a year after he was caught crossing the border in the Rio Grande Valley. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said 35-year-old Melvin Antonio Delgado is wanted by authorities in his home country for gang membership and illicit possession of drugs. He was removed aboard an ICE Air Operations charter flight without incident. “The Delgado case shows how effective cooperation between U.S. and Salvadoran law enforcement authorities helps keep our communities safe from violent transnational gang members who try to find safe haven from their crimes in our country,”

While the diagnosis was dire, Rush offered his listeners some reassurance, stating that he has “a deeply personal relationship with God that I do not proselytize about,” which, he said with a laugh, he’s been “working … tremendously” in recent days. On Thursday, Limbaugh said that everything that has happened to him since making the announcement has been a “blessing.”

The love affair of young Americans with Bernie Sanders is the result of their disturbingly disastrous belief that they are entitled to what other people worked for. Pied Piper Bernie seduces young followers with his seductive lie: “You deserve and I will give you everything for free.” Ponder that, folks. In Bernie's America, no one has to work for anything.Unless Bernie is another Jesus Christ who can feed 5,000 with a few fish and loaves of bread, Bernie's free everything means everyone will get a crumb -- long lines waiting for a crumb of healthcare, food, and so on.

In a letter to McCabe attorney Michael Bromwich obtained by Fox News, Justice Department attorney J.P.

In an exclusive interview, Attorney General Bill Barr told ABC News on Thursday that President Donald Trump "has never asked me to do anything in a criminal case” but should stop tweeting about the Justice Department because his tweets “make it impossible for me to do my job.” Barr’s comments are a rare break with a president who the attorney general has aligned himself with and fiercely defended. But it also puts Barr in line with many of Trump’s supporters on Capitol Hill who say they support the president but wish he’d cut back on his tweets.
