Cartels in Control – Mexican President Says They Had to Release Chapito Guzman or else Sinaloa Cartel Would Kill Officials…

A big FUBAR happened in Culiacan Mexico yesterday as Mexican police and narcotics officers captured Ovidio Guzman, aka “Chapito”, the heir of drug kingpin El Chappo and current head of the Sinaloa cartel.

We watched via social media yesterday as a war broke out in Culiacan between the police/military and the cartel.  After authorities captured Chapito, hundreds of Sinaloa cartel members came down from the mountains and cut off the city.  The cartel began executing and capturing anyone who was assisting the arrest.  The city shut down.

To save themselves, the surrounded Mexican officials released Chapito back to the cartels and now the world has more evidence that Mexican President Lopez-Obrador has no control over the peace and security of Mexico.  The cartels are in charge.

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexican officials on Friday admitted they had bungled the arrest of kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s son, who they let go during shootouts with drug gangs in the streets of a major city, but the president insisted his security strategy was working.

Cartel gunmen surrounded around 35 police and national guards in the northwestern city of Culiacan on Thursday and made them free Ovidio Guzman, one of the jailed drug lord’s dozen or so children, after his brief detention set off widespread gun battles and a jailbreak that stunned the country.

The chaos in Culiacan, a bastion of Guzman’s Sinaloa Cartel, turned up pressure on President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who took office in December promising to pacify a country weary of more than a decade of gang violence and murders.

Lopez Obrador came under heavy criticism on social media and from security experts, who said that authorities risked encouraging copycat actions by caving in to the gang, and that the retreat from a major city created the impression that the cartel, not the state, was in control.  (read more)

    Good info from Texas
    “aeson Jones, retired captain for the Texas Department of Public Safety’s intel and counterterrorism division, has long been a proponent of taking a more aggressive stance against the cartels and believes this is a wake-up call. “Intense violence rocked Culiacan, Mexico, yesterday as government authorities captured leaders of Sinaloa Cartel,” said the cartel expert, who just took a trip to Mexico to meet with sources. “Only hours later, the president of Mexico would cower and show the world the Mexican government was not in charge of the safety of its country. For years, I have tried to convince our citizens and government how hyper-violent the Mexican cartels have become and why we must designate the Mexican cartels as foreign terrorist organizations. Yesterday, the world witnessed it; the question now is will the U.S. State Dept. still refuse to take action?”

      We in the US are dealing with blatant threats to assassinate our President I in print, picture, video, etc and you think WE should be rescuing Mexico from the cartel? I want to see some arrests NOW!! That filthy bas*ard Peter Fonda threatened the President’s young son with being raped by pedophiles, and he is now dead. One of the biggest perpetrators of harassment investigations and impeachment, Cummings, is now dead. Maybe if I wait long enough, justice will be served in God’s time.

              there is no way to win the drug war as a war. it can be easily defeated by repealing the drug prohibitions that date from the ’20s with regulations as to purity and potency specifications of recreational drugs (something that didn’t exist in the free market for these substances prior to the prohibitions).

                To legalize drugs is no answer? The solution to drugs is in the money. My state is now overrun with pot dispensaries and CBD dispensaries and why? Money! Didn’t reduce crime or drugs or cartels, we have more. They claim opioids are down but in the meantime opiods are being targeted while pot is being sold to EVERYONE.
                If you want ‘ reason’ for a solution than look at ‘reason’ in the problem. The corruption has reached government and banking and we do not address those aspects of drug money. Banks now openly launder drug money meaning the cartel owns banks now. They own Mexico, is there any question to that? They are well on their way to own America.
                Can anyone see ‘reason’ in why the borders are open? It’s money for the criminals in government. Money folks not compassion, not good will pure greed.
                You talk of ‘free will’ there are laws to constrain free will or we would all kill ourselves. It’s proven over and over, and by the way ‘free will rules in hell’ that’s why it’s called hell.
                Government extraction of funds for gain or redistribution is tyranny and government was never meant to be tyrannical. But a nation without laws and enforcement will fall this is directly connected to a push to destroy our country.

                  This is why the Democrats are pushing all their “free stuff” policies. To realistically pay for them, the middle class would have to be obscenely taxed, more than Sweden’s cumulative 70% of income. This would make the middle class unable to afford alternative solutions to a totalitarian Democrat run govt as one would be totally dependent on govt for existing. This is also why they are pushing for these programs on a federal level. They don’t want red states escaping the punishment. Cartels or gangs terrorizing your neighborhood? That’s just deserved diversity. Normal Americans need the 2nd Amendment to protect themselves from Democrat govt policies and Democrat voters.

God help those who help themselves. Have we gone so far down the rabbit hole toward the darkness that God is our ONLY help now?

        Seeing the face of the Mexican president was beyond sad. I don’t agree with the man’s left wing politics, but I do believe he genuinely wants what he thinks best for Mexico. This is the face of a man who realizes he has lost and that his country is now in anarchy.

        Ours is heading that way, too, so we can’t afford to be but so smug. We elected a president and now a coup is trying to take him out. We have a crazy old hag running around telling everyone everybody but her is a Russian agent. We have that communist loon, Jane Fonda, trying yet again to destroy the United States. We have signs in New York with our president’s mouth taped and his arms bound. And what happens to any of these. NOTHING. What is our FBI doing? Spying on the president.

        So before we feel superior to the Mexican president, we’d better look into our own mirror. Mexico is under the control of violent drug cartels; America is increasingly coming under the control of violent Bolsheviks. What’s the difference?

        CIA is the genesis of the whole thing, going back to stuffing the body cavities of deceased soldiers killed in Vietnam with heroin to smuggle back into the United States. CIA uses drug money to finance covert operations of all kinds, including those they do inside the United States.

        The Medellin cartels were big in the early ’80s until a decision was made, under OPERATION SCREWWORM, to move the operations from Arkansas, where Governor Clinton served as an asset to the CIA in the Iran-Contra operation. The shift of Iran-Contra “enterprise,” as Oliver North called it, to Mexico is likely what facilitated the rise of the Mexican cartels to supplant the Medellin cartels in Colombia.

            There was something on one of the FOX shows, I think Hannity, on Friday night. The Sinaloa cartel uses SQUAD AUTOMATIC WEAPONS (SAWs) in the attacks. They have other US military hardware including M3 carbines, Claymore mines, recoilless rifles, mortars, M-60 and .50 caliber Browning machine guns, and more, not unlike the boys in Al Qaeda/ISIS in the Libya and Syria. I’m waiting for them to start operating M1 Abrams tanks. None of those crying crocodile tears for “the poor Kurds” want to answer the question about how ISIS jihadis came to learn how to fight in M1 Abrams tanks. Maybe Mexico is just too close to home to try to give the Sinaloa cartel Abrams tanks.

            Speaking of the Sinaloa cartel and who is behind them:

            “A Mexican foreign service officer told Stratfor in April 2010 that the U.S. seemed to have sided with the Sinaloa cartel in an attempt to limit the violence in Mexico.”

            https://www.businessinsider.com/the-us-government-and-the-sinaloa-cartel-2014-1

            “Relying on over 100 interviews with current and former government functionaries on both sides of the border, as well as official documents from the U.S. and Mexican governments, Mexico’s El Universal concluded that the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and the U.S. Justice Department had secretly worked with Mexican drug lords. The controversial conspiring led to increased violence across Mexico, where many tens of thousands have been murdered in recent years, the newspaper found after its year-long probe. The U.S. agents and their shady deals with Mexican drug lords even sparked what the paper called a “secret war” inside Mexico.”

            “The newspaper’s investigation also confirmed long-held suspicions that U.S. authorities were signing secret agreements with Mexican drug cartels — especially Sinaloa, which CIA operatives have said was a favorite for use in achieving geo-political objectives.”

            https://themazatlanpost.com/2019/02/21/u-s-government-and-top-mexican-drug-cartel-exposed-as-partners/

            The U.S. government allowed the Mexican Sinaloa drug cartel to carry out its business unimpeded between 2000 and 2012 in exchange for information on rival cartels, an investigation by El Universal claims.

            Citing court documents, the Mexican newspaper reports that DEA officers met with top Sinaloa officials over fifty times and offered to have charges against cartel members dropped in the U.S., among other pledges.”

            The beauty of the above two paragraphs is—they are a product of TIME Magazine, a centerpiece of MAINSTREAM MEDIA.

The open borders wing of the Democrat Party are clearly acting against the best interests of the U.S. and playing into the hands of the cartels since a tightly controlled border would severely curtail the flow of drugs into the U.S. thereby bankrupting the cartels Have open border politicians been corrupted by the Mexican cartels?

          • The cartels are like a raging cancer in Mexico; an indiscriminate “border stand” won’t help, although as others here have pointed out, this shows poignantly and immediately that our President is right about securing our border (I wouldn’t stop with a wall — I suggested years ago that we need a dense string of military bases on the border, and this latest Mexican tragedy underscores that. I’m not a military expert, I just know that lawless societal cancer in Mexico will have to be killed off, by direct and overwhelming force, not to mention fundamental societal backing).

            They don’t need no stinking badges — they are saying, by their actions, that theirs is the superior culture in Mexico (and, like Islam, in every “yet unconquered territory”, including the USA). We have Mexican gangster gangs here to prove it. Our own law enforcement is too widely, even culturally, corrupt.

            What we have here is multiculturalism — with a dominant lawless culture — run amuck in Mexico, and threatening the USA and every other country whose citizens think they need “recreational” drugs to endure their lives, or get a false high against reality.

            If we want it cured quickly rather than tragically, over generations, someone will have to go in and kill them all. A new American-continent military alliance against a domestic Axis of Evil. It is a cultural war, with a lawless culture, and it won’t just go away.

    When governing politicians can buy and sell positions and people, steal, and take huge bribes with absolute impunity, the rot permeates down to the man/woman on the street. Nobody escapes or is immune. In Mexico, the cop on the street is corrupt; so are his superiors, neighbors, friends and acquaintances. This has been Mexico for many decades and will not self correct anytime soon. It would take someone quite unique to reverse this awful situation, like a strong dictator with nationalistic ideology and a very strong sense of law and order; a rare specimen unlikely to exist in Mexico.

    Those aspiring to a better environment and life, and having something to offer (e.g., a higher education, a good business acumen or goof entrepreneurial instincts), end up packing and leaving the country.

    It is not a coincidence or an accident that the narcos are so well established in Mexico. They take in $billions through illicit activities and some of it goes to pay off the politicians.
    Their motto is “plata o plomo” (silver or lead), meaning take our money and do as we say or take a bullet and be done. They ruthlessly enforce their motto, as you can see it in Sinaloa right now.

    In case you wonder why so many Mexicans coming illegally to the USA steal Social Security numbers, declare their pets or their relatives in Mexico as dependents (assuming they pay any taxes), commit crimes, and abuse our support systems with some much ease and without remorse read above again.

    https://www.insightcrime.org/investigations/mexico-deadly-rise-fentanyl/

    Excerpt:
    In October 2017, President Donald Trump declared the opioid epidemic a national public health emergency, citing record deaths from opioids and expressing a belief that his administration could end “the opioid epidemic”. As part of his strategy, the President claimed that “90% of the heroin in America comes from south of the border” and called for the construction of a border wall to stem the flow.
    While it is true that a large percentage of the heroin sold in the United States comes from Mexico, the message mussed the larger point. By far, the fastest growing class of opioid-caused deaths in 2017 was fentanyl and similar drugs. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 70,273 people died from drug overdoses. Of these, 28,466 involved fentanyl or a similar synthetic drug. Horrifically, this was a 45% increase over 2016.
    While we can debate the potential effectiveness of a border wall in stopping overall drug flows into the United States, the trouble with fentanyl is that, due to its highly concentrated nature, it can be transported easily, in small quantities, and can have a devastating impact on public health. As this publication by the Mexico Institute and InSight Crime emphasizes, Mexican anti-narcotics policy has been slow to recognize the horrific potential of Fentanyl and bilateral cooperation on the drug has not kept up with the explosive development of the market.
    It is vital that Mexican public policy-makers and their US counterparts engage in conversations focusing on counter-fentanyl planning and strategy in order to develop effective means of addressing the problem of the drug in Mexico and in the United States. As a recent Wilson Center Mexico Institute publication by Eric Olson has argued, a common solution to a shared problem must be found:
    “The principles of shared responsibility and bilateral collaboration are fundamentally important to successful security cooperation. Illicit economies, whether smuggling drugs, humans, or other products, do not respect borders, so it is essential for both countries to work together to address these complex problems. The United States and Mexico should reaffirm their commitment to the framework of shared responsibility for addressing the security challenges that threaten both countries.”
    This timely publication by the Mexico Institute and Insight Crime hopes to provide both analysis and recommendations for policy-makers. As Mexico’s new government begins to modify its public security and anti-narcotics strategy, an informed public debate will be essential to finding long-term effective solutions.

      I remember when Fast and Furious was first revealed I was talking to a recent arrival at a local mexican restaurant where I was a regular about his cartel sponsored trip across the border . I asked him why would anyone come here to buy rifles. He said he had no idea full auto and more were available in any military base down there for less then the cost of shipping here. High quality American military stuff.

      Yep ~ give them an excuse to activate the U.N. troops who have been on the move in at least 13 states. The blackout in Cali was a cover to take out some underground whatever, and there are reports that Long Beach port has been used to bring in Chinese troops (they can hide in plain sight in Cali). I think we need our active military here NOW. On the southern border, for one, and potentially if Cali thinks they can “exit”.

    This is the outcome of NAFTA.

    1. In 1994, a Peso could buy around 35 cents of US goods. Now a Peso buys a nickle’s worth.
    NAFTA is enacted.
    2. US and other foreign manufacturers forced the Central Banks of Mexico to devalue the Peso
    against the Dollar to keep Mexican wages artificially low.
    3. This drove US manufacturing to Mexico to exploit artificially cheap labor.
    4. US Big Agriculture couldn’t sell any foodstuffs to the Mexican people because of the horrid
    exchange rate that was “benefiting” US manufacturers.
    5. US Big Ag lobbied Congress for tax payer funded subsidies that would allow them to sell food-
    stuffs to Mexicans at below market value.
    6. Million of Mexican farmers were put out of work, unable to compete with subsidized US Big Ag.

    In the late 80s & 90s, Mumbai (India) was effectively ruled by Indian ‘mafia’. Everything from human trafficking, extortion, drugs …… Private gun ownership is permitted only if a life threat can be demonstrated. Of course, the mafia had plenty of guns. Eventually, the Mumbai police implemented an ‘encounter’ strategy – kill rather than arrest (google Mumbai encounter specialists). My point is that violence & targeted killing by cartels has to be met with equal violence & retaliation.

    And liberals are aghast that reasonable, sane people would want to wall off such filth. Mexico is an evil, violent place. I can say that our Congress is more evil, if only less violent. Nevertheless, we need the wall, and frankly, for national security purposes, until the wall is complete and operational and effective, we need to be carpet bombing cartel locations until they are no more.

    The solution is legal pharmaceutical grade drugs at reasonable prices. As bad as that sounds, it would save tens of thousands of lives by reducing overdoses, and destroy the cartels” income stream. Legalized drugs would also help identify the users and offer them rehabilitation.

    The Mexicans will never solve this problem.in a legal fashion. They need to start playing with the same rules as the cartels. Summary executions for every cartel member caught, no due process, no incarcerations, just summary executions. Taking the high road with these savages is a losing proposition.

    You have cities like Miami, New York, Chicago, LA – and a host of others – where the cartels are set up and functioning like businesses. I’d posted an open source map of the cartels’ offices in the US, the infrastructure is here and all they need to do is fill in the blanks.

    Note the actions of major cities and populous states to legalize drugs one step at a time while dialing back on the police’s powers to enforce the law. The emphasis is swinging to ‘rehab’ from law enforcement. Get ready for the cartels to become our shadow government in various states as the drug culture continues to influence government.
