Posted on | August 15, 2019 | No Comments

Jeffrey Epstein was jailed three doors away from drug king El Chapo’s cell in the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City. But El Chapo, famed for two escapes from maximum prisons in Mexico – one by laundry cart, the other by tunnel – was unable to break away this time and was transferred to serve a life sentence in Colorado.

More Journalists Killed in Mexico

Posted on | August 8, 2019 | No Comments

Compared to the massacres in Ohio and Texas, it seems rather insignificant: three more Mexican journalists murdered in a week. Yet the mass killings of journalists in Mexico – some 100 since 2000 and ten so far this year – have been largely ignored by U.S. Government and media as if to say, they’re only Mexicans, what do you expect? That they’re right next door across our border doesn’t seem to matter. Read more

Cleopatra: Supreme Seductress and Creator of an Empire

Posted on | August 1, 2019 | No Comments

Cleopatra is almost as well known today as she was when alive in the 50’s BC – the glamorous subject of prose and poetry, drama and film. A goddess of love, we are told, who seduced two of the Roman greats – Julius Caesar and Mark Antony – overlooking perhaps her profound influence on them and the politics of the time and to come.

Julius Caesar in Need Today, a Supreme Strategist with a Clear Purpose

Posted on | July 17, 2019 | No Comments

Caesar had a plan and a goal that coincided with his own quest for personal glory: he would conquer Gaul (present-day France along with parts of neighboring countries) for the expansion and security of Rome in 50 BC. That he accomplished in nine years of well executed battles and deft negotiations among warring tribes. It was a conflict on many fronts which required his constant attention. Read more

Is War with Mexico Possible?

Posted on | July 9, 2019 | No Comments

As Mexican cartels continue to drive more drugs and people across the U.S. border, there’s talk of using American troops to combat them.

The U.S. surely doesn’t need another war, but some degree of force may be necessary to contain the drug cartels that are becoming more of a menace on the border with violence uncomfortably close and sometimes slipping over. Read more

In early June, she was talking to a relative on the veranda of her home in Huimanguillo near the Guatemalan border when four masked men pulled up in a car. One got out and shouted something to the effect, “Hey, Norma, got something for you,” and shot her four times. As she was dying, the group drove off and, as usual, have not been apprehended.

The Unmentionable Drug Cartels

Posted on | June 11, 2019 | No Comments

What organization on earth is the most dangerous to America yet rarely mentioned? Why, the unmentionable drug cartels.

In all the obsessive coverage of the border, blame is lavishly handed out to all and sundry – President Trump, the U.S. Congress, uncontrolled borders, Mexican and Central American politics, sinking economies, the stars in the heavens. But the real culprit remains in the shadows, which he prefers. Read more
