Yes, Texas Has Been Invaded - Laredo Ranch Story Has Been Confirmed

August 10th, 2010

The recent story on Los Zetas seizing a ranch or ranches in a border area north of Laredo, Texas, has now been confirmedKimbery Dvorak, the original reporter of this incident, has now provided a picture taken by her law enforcement source cartelsshowing the incident report on his police cruiser data terminal for 7/24:

“On Friday 7-23-10 Laredo Webb informed that their county SWAT Team is conducting an operation in the Mines Rd. area. According to LT. Garcia with LSO (Laredo Sheriff Office) received a call from a ranch owner stating that the Zetas had taken over his ranch. As per the 17 (reporting person) he informed them that they stated La Compania (Zetas) was taking the ranch and no one was permitted on the ranch without permission. SO (Sheriff Office) will have an unmarked green Ford Taurus with two officers stationed at Los Compadres and a white Chevy Tahoe with two officers stationed at Mineral Rd. The LSO (Laredo Sheriff Office) will maintain surveillance in the area and advise if action is taken. Susp (suspect) Veh (vehicle) are described as a gray or silver Audi, a BLK (black) Escalade or Navigator and a van truck with a logo of a car wash spot free on the side. Border Patrol also has their response team on scene. Also known info of BMW’s and Corvettes entering and leaving the area. Auth LT Lichtenberger if assistance is requested LPD (Laredo Police Department) will secure the outer perimeter. (07/24/10 07:42:10 NR1873)”

Soon after her original report, the attacks began upon Kim and also on Dan from Digger’s Realm, who helped to spread Kim’s original story.  The attacks came from the open borders groups, the lefties and even some on the right, who were quick to claim that this story was a “hoax” because Kim would not identify her source.  Mainstream journalists do this all the time - report a story without an identified source - because the most explosive stories would risk the job or life of the source. If a reporter identifies this source against their wishes, do you think it would encourage others to leak this information in the future?

One of the most virulent attackers had an entry on BigGovernment.com, which is surprising, since Andrew Breitbart is himself a “citizen journalist”.  The author of the editorial, Bob Owens, also writing for his own blog The Confederate Yankee, titled his piece “No, Texas Has Not Been Invaded”.  Incredibly, Bob Owens did not do any of his own research to base his rebuttal upon. He simply decided that since Kimberly would not identify her source, that she had made it up. Really Bob?  One has to wonder why someone who would attack other bloggers supposedly on the same side of an issue, is writing for BigGovernment in the first place. It seems Bob Owens might be more at home on Politico or Daily Kos from the way he attacked Kimberly and Dan.

And the SPLC, from their smug, self-righteous, racist perch in Alabama, declared this story a fake, without doing any of their own research whatsoever.    Media Matters joined in the feeding frenzy with their uninformed dismissal of the story as well. While they pointed the finger at Kimberly, saying how could she know what was happening in Texas when she lived in San Diego - the same critics were also not in Texas! I enjoy watching these liars try to wipe the egg from their lying faces. I’m sure they will continue to claim it’s a hoax - because they will want to protect their lying asses from the truth and keep you from believing the truth as well.

LaredoGateYou can read the backgrounder of these attacks over at Digger’s Realm - which Dan has named “LaredoGate” - a full 5 part report on the original story and the ensuing attack by both left and right on his and Kim’s reputations.  Dan also delves into the apparent media coverup, starting with the Laredo Morning Times all the way up to Fox News, who refused to even give the story any air time whatsoever.

The original story spread like wildfire - as it SHOULD have - because the story is about a violent Mexican drug cartel  that had crossed into the US and seized a ranch owned by a US citizen.

On the SAME weekend of July 23rd, two Zeta leaders were captured by US law enforcement in a “joint operation” in Brownsville, Texas.  Several things come to mind when you read of the second story out of Brownsville. Why was there a “joint operation” underway in South Texas that was apparently targeting Zetas?  And what did the Brownsville “joint operation” have to do with Laredo and the ranches seized by Zetas?

Excerpt:

A second alleged Zeta hitman has been taken into custody in Brownsville, according federal officials.

Luis Alberto Blanco Flores, also known as “El Pelochas,” 29, is in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.

Nina Pruneda, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman, said Blanco was arrested on July 23 during a joint operation that included ICE Homeland Security Investigations, U.S. Border Patrol and Brownsville police

According to court documents, Blanco was arrested for re-entering the country illegally after having been deported on Sept. 16, 2003. After Blanco concludes his pending legal matters with the U.S. government, he will be turned over to Mexican authorities, Pruneda said.

According to Mexican law enforcement officials, Blanco is affiliated with the Zetas criminal organization and worked under Arturo Castillo, also known as “El Apache.”

Castillo was arrested a day later in the same interagency operation on the charge of illegal entry and is also in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service, Pruneda said. Castillo faces extradition to Mexico, she said.

Is this not very alarming that Zeta leaders have been arrested IN THE US and that maybe some ranches along the Texas border have been seized by the same drug cartel, even if only for a short time?????  At what point do we say enough is enough and demand the security that we pay the Federal government for?

Another thing learned from this experience - as citizen journalists trying to find the truth - is that the mainstream media is desperate to discredit citizen bloggers. That fact was made quite clear as a result of the hysteria and claims of “hoax” that circulated throughout the blogosphere regarding this original story.  The goal of outfits like the SPLC and Media Matters, is to confuse people so that they don’t know what is the truth and that part is working.   If you can’t trust regular people who are trying to report the truth when they see it - you might as well stop reading news altogether because it will all just seem like fiction if you believe the lies of the propaganda machine

The Truth About Mexican Drug Cartel Weapons - They Don’t Come from the US

April 5th, 2009

Recently we heard quite a few Obama administration officials and Democrats repeating the LIE that “90% of the Mexican Drug Cartel weapons are coming illegally from the United States”. Here is one quote and they apparently cite their source as the Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms:

Last week, the Obama administration announced plans to crack down on the smuggling of guns and money pouring south from the United States into Mexico that are helping fuel violence by Mexican drug cartels.

Mexico checks only a fraction of the traffic entering from the United States but has promised to crack down.

Oh really?  And then we have here a quote about the 90% and SURPRISE it came from MEXICO:

On Thursday, Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano visit Mexico to discuss ways to stop the smuggling of American weapons, which Mexico says account for 90% of confiscated arms here.

And again we see the blame on the US (totally unfounded by FACTS)  being tossed around by Hillary Clinton:

Our insatiable demand for illegal drugs fuels the drug trade. Our inability to prevent weapons from being illegally smuggled across the border to arm these criminals causes the death of police officers, soldiers and civilians,” Clinton told reporters during her flight to Mexico City.

I suspected all along that if this were true, we should be able to get the serial numbers of all these weapons coming from the United States and somewhere there should be proof of all this right?  Well thank God for Fox News because they dug up some TRUTH.

There’s just one problem with the 90 percent “statistic” and it’s a big one:

It’s just not true.

In fact, it’s not even close. The fact is, only 17 percent of guns found at Mexican crime scenes have been traced to the U.S.

What’s true, an ATF spokeswoman told FOXNews.com, in a clarification of the statistic used by her own agency’s assistant director, “is that over 90 percent of the traced firearms originate from the U.S.”

But a large percentage of the guns recovered in Mexico do not get sent back to the U.S. for tracing, because it is obvious from their markings that they do not come from the U.S.

“Not every weapon seized in Mexico has a serial number on it that would make it traceable, and the U.S. effort to trace weapons really only extends to weapons that have been in the U.S. market,” Matt Allen, special agent of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), told FOX News.

More from this excellent expose from FOX:

A Look at the Numbers

In 2007-2008, according to ATF Special Agent William Newell, Mexico submitted 11,000 guns to the ATF for tracing. Close to 6,000 were successfully traced — and of those, 90 percent — 5,114 to be exact, according to testimony in Congress by William Hoover — were found to have come from the U.S.

But in those same two years, according to the Mexican government, 29,000 guns were recovered at crime scenes.

In other words, 68 percent of the guns that were recovered were never submitted for tracing. And when you weed out the roughly 6,000 guns that could not be traced from the remaining 32 percent, it means 83 percent of the guns found at crime scenes in Mexico could not be traced to the U.S.

So, if not from the U.S., where do they come from? There are a variety of sources:

– The Black Market. Mexico is a virtual arms bazaar, with fragmentation grenades from South Korea, AK-47s from China, and shoulder-fired rocket launchers from Spain, Israel and former Soviet bloc manufacturers.

– Russian crime organizations. Interpol says Russian Mafia groups such as Poldolskaya and Moscow-based Solntsevskaya are actively trafficking drugs and arms in Mexico.

- South America. During the late 1990s, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) established a clandestine arms smuggling and drug trafficking partnership with the Tijuana cartel, according to the Federal Research Division report from the Library of Congress.

– Asia. According to a 2006 Amnesty International Report, China has provided arms to countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Chinese assault weapons and Korean explosives have been recovered in Mexico.

– The Mexican Army. More than 150,000 soldiers deserted in the last six years, according to Mexican Congressman Robert Badillo. Many took their weapons with them, including the standard issue M-16 assault rifle made in Belgium.

– Guatemala. U.S. intelligence agencies say traffickers move immigrants, stolen cars, guns and drugs, including most of America’s cocaine, along the porous Mexican-Guatemalan border. On March 27, La Hora, a Guatemalan newspaper, reported that police seized 500 grenades and a load of AK-47s on the border. Police say the cache was transported by a Mexican drug cartel operating out of Ixcan, a border town.

Believe it or not, you will STILL continue to see this LIE repeated even in the face of the FACTS that say OTHERWISE. When you do see this lie repeated - call them out on it. Don’t let them continue to campaign against the Second Amendment based on these outright LIES coming from Mexico, our neighor… si?

**Update**

Even in the face of clear evidence to the contrary, the Mexican government CONTINUES to assert that it is weapons coming from the United States which are fueling the Mexican Drug Cartel violence.

WASHINGTON – Mexico’s ambassador to the United States says shutting down the flow of money and weapons from the U.S. into Mexico is key to dealing with the violent drug cartels in his country.

Ambassador Arturo Sarukhan says money and guns provide the drug cartels with the means to corrupt, to bribe and to kill.

Mexican authorities maintain that 90 percent of the weapons used by the drug cartels come from the U.S.

Well … this is how the mainstream media FAILS miserably in reporting the truth. Why is there no correction to this OUTRIGHT LIE by Ambassador Sarukhan??? Let me repeart the FACTS from the FOX expose:

In fact, it’s not even close. The fact is, only 17 percent of guns found at Mexican crime scenes have been traced to the U.S.

What’s true, an ATF spokeswoman told FOXNews.com, in a clarification of the statistic used by her own agency’s assistant director, “is that over 90 percent of the traced firearms originate from the U.S.”

But a large percentage of the guns recovered in Mexico do not get sent back to the U.S. for tracing, because it is obvious from their markings that they do not come from the U.S.

Why is this dirtbag allowed to continue to repeat the LIES that most of the guns used by the cartels come from the US and nobody is calling him out on it?  Why is anyone in the US media giving THIS LIAR a voice and quoting his LIES in the media?????   What a surprise from the Associated Press - apparently they are “associated” with our enemies - not our allies. Disgusting!

PRLDEF Lawsuit Alleging That the US Fails To Protect Latinos Based on False Information

December 22nd, 2008

Apparently the National Council of La Raza’s self-proclaimed “Wave of Hate” Campaign has yet another branch coming now from the Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund who has filed a lawsuit with the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights which is part of the Organization of American States.  They are charging that the United States is failing to live up to the group’s declaration on human rights, known as the American Declaration of the Rights and Duties of Man.  The lawsuit cites that violence against Latinos rose 40 percent between 2003 and 2007.

Well I did some research and so far, between 2006 and 2007, using statistics from the FBI Crime Statistic web site - the increase in crimes against Hispanics which were considered bias hate crimes rose by FIVE - not 5% but a total of 5 more of these crimes occurred in 2007 compared to 2006.

I did some further research, and guess what - the percent of crimes against Hispanic, when the total Hispanic population is considered, actually WENT DOWN between 2006 and 2007 and here is how I got there:

Total Hispanic population in 2006      40 million  (1)

Total Hispanic population in 2007       45.5 million (1)

Total hate crimes against Hispanics in 2006         770  (2)

Total hate crimes against Hispanics in 2007         775  (3)

The percentage of crimes within the Hispanic population that can be attributed to hate crimes was .00193% in 2006 and in 2007 it was .00171%.  That’s a DECREASE!  Notice that also LESS THAN 1 PER CENT OF THE HISPANIC POPULATION IN BOTH 2006 AND 2007 HAVE BEEN VICTIMS OF A HATE CRIME BECAUSE OF THEIR ETHNICITY.

Let’s compare that to - hmm.. maybe the Black population shall we?

Without bothering with the percentages except to note that the Black population has been now surpassed by the Hispanic population in this country and it’s around 40 million - let’s look at the numbers of hate crimes against blacks:

2006 Hate Crimes against Blacks                    3136

2007 Hate Crimes against Blacks                     3275

That percentage of hate crimes compared to the population is WAY higher than Hispanics are experiencing.

And I’d like to point out that the habit of obscuring statistics about Hispanics makes it very difficult to tally up these numbers because, in essence, often Hispanics are categorized as part of the WHITE race because they do not consider Hispanic or Latino to be a  RACE but an ETHNICITY.

Here’s some interesting statistics for you.  On the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list - 4 of the 10 are Hispanic -yet the Hispanic population is only 14.5 % of the total US population. So 40 PER CENT of the criminals on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list are Hispanic taking up a much larger share there than they do in the general population. What gives?   If you also are a frequent viewer of America’s Most Wanted, you might also find that most of the fugitves they chase these days are illegal aliens with Hispanic names.  Also true on the cops shows where they follow the police arresting fugitives. You will find most of the fugitives are Hispanics. Gee there a trend for ya PRLDEF.

Here’s an interesting link I found. The San Francisco DEA’s Most Wanted Fugitives list. Notice there is not ONE non-Hispanic name and face on that list?  Where do I file MY petition that MY GOVERNMENT IS NOT PROTECTING ME AS AN AMERICAN CITIZEN FROM THESE CRIMINAL HISPANICS?  In fact, go to the main page and see that click on ANY state you will see that in EVERY STATE the DEA fugitives are HISPANIC. What is wrong with this picture????  And if you really want to see how the White/Hispanic statistics are SO SKEWED just click on some of the offenders and it clearly states Place of Birth is MEXICO yet their race is WHITE. HUH? So next time you see WHITE crime statistics realize that a LARGE PORTION OF WHITE CRIME IS FROM ILLEGAL ALIEN HISPANICS WHO ARE LISTED AS WHITE.

So let’s take a look at this  Declaration of the Rights and Duties of Man as it pertains to the protection and rights of the legal American citizen. And notice - all of these “rights” do not mention who is going to PAY for these services and things humans have a “right” to.

The Latest Lies from the Left - Republicans Lost for not Catering to Hispanics - HUH?

November 14th, 2008

So.. now we are hearing the liberal left (aka New Democrat Network) claim that Republicans lost because they “demonized” Hispanics and they failed to address the Hispanic vote’s immigration concerns.  What a load of crap!     amnesty The truth is - the Republicans have lost their base BECAUSE of their support of illegal aliens and their turning of a blind eye to businesses that hire them. They have lost their base because they have PANDERED to the likes of the National Council of La Ratza.

Simon Rosenberg, president and CEO of NDN – formerly the New Democrat Network — said that Republicans are now “paying a steep price for demonizing Hispanics” in their “anti-immigration rhetoric” – rhetoric that he said created the “fear of losing jobs to undocumented immigrants of Americans.”

And let me just state in no uncertain terms here - that THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A HOMOGENOUS HISPANIC VOTE.  Being Hispanic does NOT make you a liberal or someone who supports the National Council of La Raza. They like to try to portray “the Hispanic vote” as if it IS homogenous and nothing could be more of an outright LIE than this.

I can tell you as a former Republican that I switched my affiliation to Independent because of Republicans like John Kyl and John McCain who are nothing but conservative turncoats who only deserve my utmost conservative CONTEMPT.  John Kyl ran his re-election campaign on border security and attacked his opponent because of his support for amnesty for illegal aliens. Then after he was elected, he became McCain’s buddy and tried to convince more Republicans to vote for the Shamnesty 2006 bill piece of crap legislation…  It is liars like these that we need to toss out on their asses from office.  The Republican party is just chock full of liars like these.. but so is the Democratic party.

Let me just point out activist groups such as You Don’t Speak for Me - a group of HISPANICS  who are working AGAINST ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.  Does the National Council of La Raza consider their voices?

To the complete contrary - John McCain was actually PROVEN to support AMNESTY for ILLEGAL ALIENS  so.. if the “Hispanic vote” cared about amnesty - why did they NOT support John McCain?  It seems the TRUTH is that by supporting amnesty, John McCain actually LOST Hispanic support.  Even Ruben Navarette Jr - the fully pro-illegal commentator - expresses concern after the election that Barry Hussein Obama was not a friend to amnesty supporters.

Yet when it comes to immigration, Obama will have trouble keeping his promise of comprehensive reform from last summer. He will probably toss Latino supporters a bone by stopping construction of the border fence that he voted for in the Senate and ending the workplace raids that have caused so much disgust in the Latino community.

But nothing else. And if Latinos are paying attention and holding the new president to account, they’ll know they’ve been used. And, if honest with themselves, they’ll have something else to be disgusted about.

So this again proves that being Hispanic does not mean you think only the way the National Council of La Raza wants you to think. Even in the Hispanic community, support for Obama or McCain was divided.

And that is because - both were ignoring the issue of Immigration and Illegal Immigration during the campaign. It was the elephant in the room and continues to be.  The ONLY Presidential candidate who we KNEW FOR A FACT SUPPORTED AMNESTY WAS JOHN MCCAIN. We knew that because of his crafting of amnesty legislation with his buddy across the aisle Ted Kennedy.

YET even in the face of that overwhelming evidence that McCain was PRO-AMNESTY,  he failed to corner “the Hispanic vote”.  And that is because being Hispanic does not mean you support amnesty or you think in one way.

Of course if you take the BLACK vote you can see that the color of your skin sometimes DOES make a group think in a particular way.  Some 97% of  Black voters chose Barry Hussein Obama - what percentage of those voters actually knew ANYTHING about Barry Hussein Obama?  I’ll take a wild guess.. maybe 3%?

 And exit polls taken after voting ended showed an overwhelming support for Democrat Barack Obama among black voters, with close to 100 per cent in some states such as Florida (98 per cent) and Georgia (97 per cent).

Gee it sure is good to know there’s no more racism in the United States… NOT!

Back to Hispanic voters… and these “policy groups” that are nothing more than the propaganda arm of  the radical liberal left wing. This is the latest BS they want Americans to swallow:

David Mermin, a partner at Lake Research Partners, a national public opinion and political strategy research firm hired by La Raza to study American voters, said 62 percent of American voters are now “more interested in converting illegal immigrants into legal taxpayers than deporting them because they might be taking jobs.”

Gee nobody asked me to participate in this survey and I suspect they didn’t ask anyone who is like me. If they did, they would not be able to claim such idiotic things like “Americans are more interested in converting illegal aliens into legal taxpayers”… Was he asleep during the BACKLASH of June 2006 when Americans overwhelmingly shut down the phone lines at the Capitol to STOP SHAMNESTY?

Before anyone takes David Mermin or Lake Research Partners as some kind of non-partisan polling outfit, consider that by their own description they are a DEMOCRATIC POLLING GROUP as can be seen here in their “About President Celinda Lake” page:

Since its formation, Lake Research Partners has become one of the most respected Democratic polling firms in the country, with its Battleground poll widely recognized as one of the leading national issue and election thermometers. The firm’s work has moved the progressive agenda forward on a variety of issues

Funny how the obvious propaganda piece from The National Council of La Raza FAILS TO MENTION THAT LAKE RESEARCH IS TOTALLY IN THE TANK FOR DEMOCRATS AND “PROGRESSIVES”.

Another reference to their bias here:

Lake Research Partners is a national public opinion and political strategy research firm. Our principals are among the Democratic Party’s leading strategists, serving as tacticians and senior advisors to dozens of incumbents and challengers at all levels of the electoral process, as well as to a wide range of advocacy organizations, non-profit organizations, and foundations.

We are proud to do work for a number of outstanding clients, including: the Democratic National Committee (DNC), the Democratic Governor’s Association (DGA), AFL-CIO, SEIU, CWA, IAFF, Sierra Club, Planned Parenthood, Human Rights Campaign, Emily’s List and the Kaiser Foundation.

One of our most newsworthy projects is our Battlegound Poll, which we conduct with our partners at the Tarrance Group. Together, we survey the year’s political landscape and point out critical issues that Washington can’t afford to ignore.

Apparently their polling is only too happy to IGNORE your input however…
