Border Patrol Seizes $3 Million In Cash Crossing U.S. Mexico Border…

If only they’d loaded it on a pallet and asked the State Dept to ship, it probably wouldn’t have been such a big deal.  Perhaps they’ll use the “we couldn’t wire it” defense.

The Border Patrol says it’s arrested two men they believe tried to smuggle $3 million in cash into Mexico from California.

The agency says its agents tracked and stopped a Kia Forte in Escondido on Tuesday and found nearly $34,000 stashed in the car’s center console.

Authorities say another car sped off as the first vehicle was stopped but it was later found abandoned nearby. That car, a Volkswagen Passat, had more than $3 million packed in boxes in the trunk.  The driver was found hiding in some brush.

Both men — one a U.S. citizen and the other from Mexico — were arrested on suspicion of currency smuggling.  (link)

    Idiots. All they had to do was pay the Clinton Crime Foundation 10% or $300k or so and the State Dept, or one of Bills private Jet buddies would have gladly delivered it to the Cartel owners. After, if the Cartel Boss wasn’t already a Clinton donor, Bill or Hillary could have hit him up for more ‘donations’ to smooth future transfers.

    These drug dealers are amateurs and should follow the lead of multi-nationals and tin pot dictators by greasing the right wheels.

      Those two dummies just cost the cartel $3 million. Although the cartel can afford those sorts of losses as just the cost of doing business, I think it’s probably not a good career enhancement for the two erstwhile messengers. Adios, boys.

        I agree Bofh, however, a good number of these crossing the border owe the cartel for some reason or another whether made up or not. They’re usually the ones who can’t get out of poverty and are easy pickings.

        I would venture to guess the cartel are sick of their guys going to prison, so they choose expendable ones. Some people may wonder why they would trust peons with so migh money, but for one, it’s a small amount in the big pictures of things, and two, they’ve already been threatened with their loved ones. Stealing the money would not only be suicidal for them, but for their whole family.

        If this is true, and in many instances it is, one can’t help but feel a tad sorry for these guys. I’m sure the Border Patrol can feel these ones out. It doesn’t help them in the long run, or at least shouldn’t with our laws, but it is what it is.
        Be well,

  22. Larry Summers Launches The War On Paper Money: “It’s Time To Kill The $100 Bill”

    Yesterday we reported that the ECB has begun contemplating the death of the €500 EURO note, a fate which is now virtually assured for the one banknote which not only makes up 30% of the total European paper currency in circulation by value, but provides the best, most cost-efficient alternative (in terms of sheer bulk and storage costs) to Europe’s tax on money known as NIRP.

    That also explains why Mario Draghi is so intent on eradicating it first, then the €200 bill, then the €100 bill, and so on.

    We also noted that according to a Bank of America analysis, the scrapping of the largest denominated European note “would be negative for the currency”, to which we said that BofA is right, unless of course, in this global race to the bottom, first the SNB “scraps” the CHF1000 bill, and then the Federal Reserve follows suit and listens to Harvard “scholar” and former Standard Chartered CEO Peter Sands who just last week said the US should ban the $100 note as it would “deter tax evasion, financial crime, terrorism and corruption.”

    Well, not even 24 hours later, and another Harvard “scholar” and Fed chairman wannabe, Larry Summers, has just released an oped in the left-leaning Amazon Washington Post, titled “It’s time to kill the $100 bill” in which he makes it clear that the pursuit of paper money is only just starting. Not surprisingly, just like in Europe, the argument is that killing the Benjamins would somehow eradicate crime, saying that “a moratorium on printing new high denomination notes would make the world a better place.”

    The press is carrying water for Obama, pushing a story that implies Obama paid an obscene amount to ransom hostages. I believe this is a scam. Obama was using the hostages as an excuse to give Iran the money

    Obama didn’t give 2 cents for other US hostages

    The hostages were informed they were had to wait for the money plane so they would be witnesses that Obama was performing a ‘humanitarian’ mission.

    The first politician or news venue who questions the cover story would be vilified as a conspiracy theorist

    Obama also went out of his way to retrieve the anti American Bergdahl, while he let others rot

    He was Skimming to much of the US Government Profits..
    Footnote..
    From the 1950s until shortly before the U.S. invasion, Noriega worked closely with the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency. Noriega was one of the CIA’s most valued intelligence sources, as well as one of the primary conduits for illicit weapons, military equipment and cash destined for US-backed counter-insurgency forces throughout Central and South America. Noriega was also a Major cocaine trafficker, something which his U.S. intelligence handlers were aware of for years, but allowed because of his usefulness for their covert military operations in Latin America..

        80s, early 90s. End of the month was the big sales day. When the welfare checks came in. Guess drugs are the new growth industry in middle of nowhere, rural southern Ohio.
