The Book Drug Cartels Hate

Jeanine Cummins could not have asked for greater accolades for her new novel, “American Dirt,” about a mother fleeing with her child in Mexico after a drug cartel has killed her journalist husband and fifteen others in a not untypical massacre. “Marvelous,” “masterful,” “dazzling,””riveting,” “a Grapes of Wrath for our times,” referring to John Steinbeck’s […]

The Mormon Example

Mexican drug cartels, who basically control the country, pounce mercilessly on any resistance, which may explain last November’s savage attack on a group of American Mormons trying to reach a wedding. Nine women and children were either shot to death or burned in exploding cars. It was also a clear warning to other Americans: We’re […]

Drug Cartels Invade U.S.

The drug cartels’ ravaging of Mexico doesn’t get much coverage in the American media, suggesting Mexicans, though close by, don’t count so much. More surprising is the neglect of cartel activity right here in the U.S. That has now been remedied by one newspaper, the Louisville Courier Journal, which has provided an extensive, painstakingly researched […]

Shot and burned to death in their cars, the victims evoked horror in the U.S. But in […]

Mexico’s Rulers Show Who’s Boss

While the U.S. Government and media are fixated on a narrow strip of land in northern Syria, they strangely ignore the violent tumult much closer to home just across the southern border where drug cartels continue to destroy Mexico and poison America. This is not news?

El Chapo and Epstein Share a Prison

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 […]
