More Journalists Killed in Mexico

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 […]

Is War with Mexico Possible?

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 […]

The Unmentionable Drug Cartels

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

Fast and Furious Revisited

During this “Constitutional Crisis” it’s worth recalling a similar episode a decade ago when the U.S. Government sold 2,000 guns to Mexican drug cartels in a project known as Fast and Furious. We still don’t know why.

America’s Greatest Threat

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. They’re currently responsible for almost all the opiates now flooding the U.S. and poisoning the population. People […]

The Real Wall

When is a wall not a wall? When it’s a fence. A semantic confusion. We’re not sure what is being built along the U.S.-Mexican border, but politically speaking, the word “wall” packs a punch for both sides, for and against, useful for rallying supporters, fanning the flames, winning some votes. Never mind reality.

The Shot That Explains the Caravan

While journalist Jesus Ramos Rodriguez was having breakfast in a restaurant in Mexico’s Tabasco state, a stranger approached and fired eight shots, killing him. The assailant then fled, avoiding capture. Rodriguez had been warned not to report drug cartel activity on his radio program for which the punishment is death.
