CONFIRMED: The DEA Struck A Deal With Mexico’s Most Notorious Drug Cartel
An investigation by El Universal found that between the years 2000 and 2012, the U.S. government had an arrangement with Mexico’s Sinaloa drug cartel that allowed the organization to smuggle billions of dollars of drugs while Sinaloa provided information on rival cartels.
Sinaloa, led by Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, supplies 80% of the drugs entering the Chicago area and has a presence in cities across the U.S.
There have long been allegations that Guzman, considered to be “the world’s most powerful drug trafficker,” coordinates with American authorities.
But the El Universal investigation is the first to publish court documents that include corroborating testimony from a DEA agent and a Justice Department official.
The written statements were made to the U.S. District Court in Chicago in relation to the arrest of Jesus Vicente Zambada-Niebla, the son of Sinaloa leader Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada and allegedly the Sinaloa cartel’s “logistics coordinator.”
Here’s what DEA agent Manuel Castanon told the Chicago court:
“On March 17, 2009, I met for approximately 30 minutes in a hotel room in Mexico City with Vincente Zambada-Niebla and two other individuals — DEA agent David Herrod and a cooperating source [Sinaloa lawyer Loya Castro] with whom I had worked since 2005. … I did all of the talking on behalf of [the] DEA.”
A few hours later, Mexican Marines arrested Zambada-Niebla (a.k.a. “El Vicentillo”) on charges of trafficking more than a billion dollars in cocaine and heroin. Castanon and three other agents then visited Zambada-Niebla in prison, where the Sinaloa officer “reiterated his desire to cooperate,” according to Castanon.
El Universal, citing court documents, reports that DEA agents met with high-level Sinaloa officials such as Castro more than 50 times since 2000.
Then-Justice Department prosecutor Patrick Hearn told the Chicago court that, according to DEA special agent Steve Fraga, Castro “provided information leading to a 23-ton cocaine seizure, other seizures related to” various drug trafficking organizations, and that “El Mayo” Zambada wanted his son to cooperate with the U.S.

The Pig Trap
America is at that awkward stage. It’s too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.
Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do ‘Til the Revolution (1996)
I had a very memorable and thought-provoking passenger a while back that I never wrote about because while I found him fascinating, he seemed a little too political for what was always intended to be a fun blog to read and some cheap therapy for your humble driver and writer. But in light of all the scandals that have erupted lately and the EpicClusterSharknadoFuck that is ObamaCare, I have been thinking about a few things he said to me, so I’m going to commit them to paper (or pixels), if only for my own reading. So if you just want to read about moron drunks and belligerent whores, skip this post…
But if you are interested in catching up on current events that just might personally affect you soon, please read on…
It was June of 2012, when I got a call to pick up a gentleman at a resort hotel at around 4 AM going to the airport. I was a little surprised to see “Mr. Wheeler” waiting for me in front of the lobby, five minutes early, standing by his suitcase. Generally, people keep me waiting on these calls, still half asleep, late coming down, trying to get checked out, dicking around with their luggage and what not. He was in his late 50?s or early 60?s, fit, wearing a navy blazer and was obviously a business traveller, but he also had a certain posture and demeanor that made me think he was ex-military. We load up his luggage and hit the road, and I am chatting with him as we are heading to the airport. I ask what kind of work he does, and he says he is in “executive security”. I said, “Oooh, that sounds interesting… you mean like bodyguard work?”
He says, “Something like that… executive protection, security systems, personnel screening, entry/egress control, things like that. It sounds much more interesting than it really is… I spend a lot of time shuffling paper around and reading emails.”
I said, “You have the bearing of a military man… am I correct?”
“Yes, Sir… 22 years in the Marine Corps.” I thanked him for his service, something I always do when I encounter a member of our armed services. My standard line is, “Thank you for your service. I think you should hear that every damned day for the rest of your life, and your first beer should be free anywhere you go.”
So we are chatting on the drive, and the story on the radio is Eric Holder being held in contempt of Congress over the Fast and Furious fiasco. I said, “Can you believe that shit? This asshole intentionally sends guns to Mexican drug gangs that will no doubt end up killing thousands of people, and then he lies and stonewalls the Congress? How is this deceitful douchebag not in shackles and an orange jumpsuit? And more to the point, how does someone like this ever ascend to the office of Attorney General?”
“He’s part of the Clinton machine… he knows low people in high places. He came up under Janet Reno… you know who that is, right?”
“Oh, yes, I know… the crazy dyke that gave the order to burn down the Branch Davidians in Waco. But what I don’t get is how they ever thought they could pull this shit off… people aren’t THAT stupid. If you say you are tracking guns, although you have no actual means of tracking the guns, that makes you look both dishonest AND moronic, and your cover story doesn’t make any sense. This didn’t have anything to do with illegal gun sales… any idiot can see that. So what was the REAL plan here?”
Mr. Wheeler says, “Have you ever heard of Occam’s Razor?”
Read on HERE. Interesting long read, but well worth it! Something you should have your liberal buddies read.
Here is an excerpt from this article that I do really believe we should do:
Wheeler got quiet for a few moments, and then he said something that I will never, ever forget.
“These people are playing with matches… I don’t think they understand the scope and scale of the wildfire they are flirting with. They are fucking around with a civil war that could last a decade and cause millions of deaths… and the sad truth is that 95% of the problems we have in this country could be solved tomorrow, by noon… simply by dragging 100 people out in the street and shooting them in the fucking head.”
Zo wraps up his examination of a liberal meme that is as close as Zo wants to get to a colonoscopy (considering how full of crap this meme is). Its a meme that blames conservatives and credits liberals for a list of policies and issues in American history. Zo also points the cowardice of democrats trying to throw people off the scent of their rotten history by trying to switch labels to stigmatize conservatives. Are you going to let democrats twist and paint what conservatism is? Here more in this ZoNation!

The Case for a Little Sedition
The Bundy standoff reminds us that government is our servant, not our master.
A great deal of the discussion about the Cliven Bundy standoff in Nevada has focused on the legal questions — the litigation between Mr. Bundy and the BLM, his eccentric (i.e., batzoid) legal rationales, etc. But as Rich Lowry and others have argued, this is best understood not as a legal proceeding but as an act of civil disobedience. John Hinderaker and Rich both are correct that as a legal question Mr. Bundy is legless. But that is largely beside the point.
Of course the law is against Cliven Bundy. How could it be otherwise? The law was against Mohandas Gandhi, too, when he was tried for sedition; Mr. Gandhi himself habitually was among the first to acknowledge that fact, refusing to offer a defense in his sedition case and arguing that the judge had no choice but to resign, in protest of the perfectly legal injustice unfolding in his courtroom, or to sentence him to the harshest sentence possible, there being no extenuating circumstances for Mr. Gandhi’s intentional violation of the law. Henry David Thoreau was happy to spend his time in jail, knowing that the law was against him, whatever side justice was on.
But not all dissidents are content to submit to what we, in the Age of Obama, still insist on quaintly calling “the rule of law.” And there is a price to pay for that, too: King George not only would have been well within his legal rights to hang every one of this nation’s seditious Founding Fathers, he would have been duty-bound to do so, the keeping of the civil peace being the first responsibility of the civil authority. Every fugitive slave, and every one of the sainted men and women who harbored and enabled them, was a law-breaker, and who can blame them if none was content to submit to what passed for justice among the slavers? The situation was less dramatic during the government shutdown, but every one of the veterans and cheesed-off citizens who disregarded President Obama’s political theater and pushed aside his barricades was a law-breaker, too — and bless them for being that.
Harry Reid, apparently eager for somebody to play the role of General Dyer in this civil-disobedience drama, promises that this is “not over.” And, in a sense, it can’t be over: The theory of modern government is fundamentally Hobbesian in its insistence that where political obedience is demanded, that demand must be satisfied lest we regress into bellum omnium contra omnes. I myself am of the view that there is a great deal of real estate between complete submission and civil war, and that acts such as Mr. Bundy’s are not only bearable in a free republic but positively salubrious. Unhappily, those views are not shared by many in Washington, and, if I were a wagering sort, my money would be on Mr. Bundy ending up dead or in prison, with a slight bias in the odds toward death.

Meltdown America: A Warning From Survivors
A beautiful fairy appeared one day to a destitute Mexican refugee outside an Arizona immigration office.
“Good man,” the fairy said, “I’ve been sent here by
President Obama and told to grant you three wishes
since you just arrived in the United States with
your wife and eight children.”
The man told the fairy, “Well, where I come from
we don’t have good teeth, so I want new teeth,
maybe a lot of gold in them.”
The fairy looked at the man’s almost toothless grin
and — PING!– he had a brand new shining set of
gold teeth in his mouth! “What else?”
asked the fairy, “Two more to go.”
The refugee claimant now got bolder. “I need a big
house with a three-car garage in Annapolis on the
water with eight bedrooms for my family and the
rest of my relatives who still live in my country.
I want to bring them all over here” and PING!
In the distance there could be seen a beautiful
mansion with a three car garage, a long driveway,
and a walkout patio with a BBQ in an upscale
neighborhood over-looking the bay. “One more wish,”
said the fairy, waving her wand.
“Yes, one more wish. I want to be like an American
with American clothes instead of these torn clothes,
and a baseball cap instead of this sombrero. And I
want to have white skin like Americans” —and — PING!
The man was transformed – wearing worn-out jeans,
a Baltimore Orioles T-shirt, and a baseball cap.
He had his bad teeth back and the mansion had
disappeared from the horizon.
“What happened to my new teeth?” He wailed.
“Where is my new house?”
The fairy said: “Tough shit, Amigo, now that you
are a white American, you have to fend for yourself.”
It’s time to cut the ‘love thy ILLEGAL neighbor’ nonsense
“I think race has something to do with the fact that they’re not bringing up an immigration bill.” Nancy Pelosi, wicked witch of the House
And now out comes the ever-loving race card once again, and this time it was used by Congressman Steve Israel (D-NY), head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Saying, “the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism,” Israel’s comment adds more fuel to the fires of racial hatred, and comes on top of Nancy Pelosi’s statement blaming racial issues for the Republicans’ refusal to act on comprehensive immigration reform …translation: on amnesty.
With NO elements of racial hatred within the Democratic party according to Pelosi and ‘Prince’ Harry Reid…and if you believe that I’ve got a bridge to sell you…what this all amounts to is the Democrats simple frustration over the Republicans stalling their ability to get these ILLEGALS into our country so they can be registered as Democratic voters…period.
The Senate bill as currently written outright gives a pathway to citizenship to the 11 million immigrants currently living here ILLEGALLY…and please know that there’s a lot more than the 11 million the government claims. And by the very nature of them coming and living here ILLEGALLY…coming here NOT following our immigration laws (Section 1325 in Title 8 of the United States Code states that anyone who enters or attempts to enter the U.S. at any time or place other than as designated by immigration agents, or eludes examination or inspection by immigration agents, or attempts to enter or obtains entry to the United States by a willfully false or misleading representation or the willful concealment of a material fact) is breaking our laws…meaning these people are out and out criminals for the word ILLEGAL in and of itself means breaking the law. ILLEGALS thus become criminals by the very nature of their being here, and now the Democrats want to embrace criminals just for votes…making the Democrats accessory after the fact if you will.
And what of the roughly 800,000 children of ILLEGALS who were born here. Do the sins of the parents necessarily reflect on the children…a conundrum for sure. But there are solutions for this. First and most importantly the borders must be sealed and sealed NOW with any and all caught crossing sent back to their home county. As for the children currently here…those under the age of 18 need to be sent back with their parents to said home countries NO matter how much the bleeding heart liberals whine they were born here, they grew up here, all they know is here. That’s why a caveat should be placed on those children who by NO fault of their own were born here stating that once they reach a certain age they and they alone…as in NOT their criminal parents…can reapply to LEGALLY re-enter the U.S., and then they would need to take the standard citizenship test that all LEGALLY arriving immigrants take to become an American citizen.

The idea that capitalism exploits workers stems from Karl Marx’s work in the late 1800s. Although the definition of “exploitation” has changed since then, many still believe capitalist systems take advantage of vulnerable workers. Prof. Matt Zwolinski explains why capitalism actually tends to protect workers’ interests. And Zwolinski contends that even if it were exploitative, increasing political regulation and control would actually make the problem worse. Increases in government make citizens more vulnerable to the state. Political officials are tempted to exploit this vulnerability for the benefit of the politically well connected. Unlike free market transactions, which are mutually beneficial, when politics is involved one party’s gain usually comes at someone else’s expense.
“The supporters of these [voter ID] laws say, correctly, that they do not discriminate on their face based upon race. That’s why the president cannot allow this to become a black-versus-white issue, even though black and Hispanic advocates are rightfully concerned about the impact these laws are having on their communities. The notion that this is a racial issue is only reinforced when he stands with Al Sharpton and tells that audience what it already knows to be true.” –The Atlantic
The Chinese Are Here to Confiscate Our Guns
In Part three of this series on the Bundy affair and what it reveals about the intentions of the Chines military, we look at the fact that the Chinese Solar Energy Zones are located adjacent to an American military base. We examine the ramifications for this placement and the reader can rest assured that this is no coincidence.
Bundy Achieves Victory but the Event Reveals a Sinister Agenda
As thousands of sheriffs, militia members and state legislators rushed to the aid of Cliven Bundy, plans are already in place to limit any citizen uprising. We know that the feds recorded license plates and engaged in facial recognition of the people on the scene who were actively supporting Cliven Bundy. This is a very disturbing development when one considers that Obama has been proposing preventative and prolonged detention (i.e. pre-crime) for people who “might” pose a future threat. This is the justification for the usage of FEMA camps.
My sources tell me that the current Obama purge of the military, over 200+ high command military officers and counting, is due to the fact that many commanders have threatened to “stand down” over several issues including Obama’s planned invasion of Syria. Until Obama has a military he can trust to betray the American people, he must rely on foreign (i.e. UN) assets in order to carry out any controversial activities such as door-to-door gun confiscation.
The UN Is Setting the Gun Confiscation Agenda
The UN is imposing limits on ammunition and magazines for all member nations. However, in joint training exercises being conducted between the US military forces and various foreign military forces, they are indeed going to the next level by training to seize American guns being stored in American homes. And, in the future, these foreign troops will likely consist of Russian and Chinese troops operating under the auspices of the United Nations.
Even FOX News has expressed concern over the UN Treaty which bans guns. The National Rifle Association has expressed their concern as well and for a very good set of reasons.
According to the UN’s own disarmament website, a “regional instrument that aims to curtail small arms ownership and illicit trafficking in Southern Africa along with the destruction of surplus state weapons. It is a far-reaching instrument, which goes beyond that of a politically binding declaration, providing the region with a legal basis upon which to deal with both the legal and the illicit trade in firearms.” The UN is calling for the use of foreign troops to seize guns in member countries.

RED RIVER RUMBLE? BLM Wants to Seize 90,000 Acres of Texas Ranchers’ Land!
Byers, Texas along the Red River — The BLM stole 140 acres of the Tommy Henderson ranch thirty years ago. They took his land and paid him absolutely nothing. He sued and lost. Now the BLM is using that court case as precedent to do it again. The problem is, the land they want to seize is property that ranchers have a deed for and have paid taxes on for over a hundred years.
The BLM claims that about 90,000 acres (116 miles along the Red River) have never belonged to Texas in the first place. They will seize the land and it will seriously change the boundaries between the two states.
Since 1803 when the Louisiana Purchase was completed, there has been a controversy over the boundary between Oklahoma and Texas. The boundary is supposed to be the vegetation line on the south side of the Red River. But the River has moved over time. The problem is the definition of that boundary line- Oklahoma and Texas each use different semantics to define it. And the BLM is finding ways to use the disputed words to give them the ability to seize the land.
Why exactly does the Post Office need to stock up on ammo?
Add the U.S. Postal Service to the list of federal agencies seeking to purchase what some Second Amendment activists say are alarmingly large quantities of ammunition.
Earlier this year, the USPS posted a notice on its website, under the heading “Assorted Small Arms Ammunition,” that says: “The United States Postal Service intends to solicit proposals for assorted small arms ammunition. If your organization wishes to participate, you must pre-register. This message is only a notification of our intent to solicit proposals.”
Alan Gottlieb, chairman of the Washington-based Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, said: “We’re seeing a highly unusual amount of ammunition being bought by the federal agencies over a fairly short period of time. To be honest, I don’t understand why the federal government is buying so much at this time.”
Jake McGuigan, director of state affairs and government relations for the National Shooting Sports Foundation, said widely reported federal ammunition purchases have sparked conspiracy-type fears among gun owners, who worry that the federal government is trying to crack down on Second Amendment rights via the back door by limiting the ammo available to owners.
