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.

Eight U.S. journalists have been fired for a TV program critical of George Soros. Was it justified or a Stalinist hit?

America’s Greatest Threat

Posted on | May 9, 2019 | No Comments

The greatest threat to America is finally getting some attention. State legislators in Ohio are urging the U.S. Government to designate Mexican drug cartels as foreign terrorist organizations, which would enhance the powers to be used against them.

Paul Biya has been President of Cameroon for 42 years. Ali Khamenei has been Supreme Leader of Iran for 36 years. Denis Sassou Nguesso has ruled the Republic of the Congo for 33 years.

That makes Emomali Rahmon something of a youngster. He has been in charge of post-Communist Tajikistan for a mere 27 years, though he has made up for lack of time on the job with exceptional dedication to it.
