Obama Ignores Ex-Marine
Wrongly Held In Mexican Jail

Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:HollowLeg, 12/14/2012 10:34:45 PM

Foreign Relations: A veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan is chained to a jail bed for months after trying to register a souvenir rifle with Mexican authorities, and the Obama administration does nothing to correct this injustice.Since August, Jon Hammar, a former Marine who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, has been held in a notorious Mexican prison effectively run by the Zetas drug cartel. His crime: declaring to Mexican authorities that he was transporting an antique shotgun after registering the gun with U.S. Customs agents on his way to a surfing trip with buddies in Costa Rica.

Comments:
Semper fi, unlike the Obama administration.

Obama´s dislike of all things military is obvious.

Obama gives up a Marine as a sacrifice to Mexican authorities still peeved over Barack´s illegal gunrunning operation.

Make a trade. The Won for Jon Hammar.

This "administration" is "idealistic", in that it hates all things traditionally American. The American citizen in question is a combat veteran (therefore suspected of being at statistical risk of being a potential "terrorist" according to DHS dogma), and is also "not a person of color" (therefore not one of Holder or Obama´s "people"). Unless significant political pressure is brought to bear on this "administration" (through Congress or perhaps private sources) this man will be abandoned by his "government" (for which he risked life and lost limbs) and continue to be tortured by the Mexican "government".

Obama could get this guy out in five minutes and he should. However, don´t any of you ever think the US Customs people can give you any kind of permit for anything in Mexico. We are two different countries.

May I remind everyone that Obama blew a cool million throwing a party for the Mexican President.
Obama had better start showing the majority population of this country that he is their President too. Get the white guy out of that hell hole. TODAY.

Unfortunately it´s not the "government" that is holding Jon Hammer, it´s the drug cartels to whom hussein has catered with F&F. The Mexican Government is terrified of these criminals who control their government and was aided and abetted by this admin. hussein has no idea how to take care of this situation or any others. Maybe a golf game with Boehner would be advantageous!

There´s something missing in this story. Why did this young man think he could carry this weapon in countries that strictly prohibit them? The fact that it is an antique and handed down in his family is irrelevant.I own one of these and, yes, it´s like a BB gun- just one that sends dozens of BBs at velocity about four times that of a Daisy air rifle. One of he first things I did in preparation for an upcoming vacation in Puerto Rico is to see if I could check it in my luggage and carry it in PR( thinking that they are almost a U.S state in so many respects and I had I found it relatively easy to travel to a Keys vacation with my handgun).It was made most apparent that I will be protected only by my wits and better judgement while visiting. Yes, we should do everything to get this soldier home but I also think this story has parts missing.

What #6 said. Unfortunately for Jon Hammar, he doesn´t look like he could be obama´s "son", or this would be over and he would be back home. The fact that the former Marine served in both Iraq AND Afghanistan doesn´t matter to the most anti-American "president" in the history of this Country. Thanks again, obamabots. Sleep well.

as previous posters have implied, this is just about trying to extort a million dollar bribe to get him out. Since he´s an ex-serviceman, they think the US government (or his family) will come up with the money.

Extortion, plain and simple. It´s what the Mexicans do, it´s what they´ve always done.

A real commander in chief would say, "Release him unharmed immediately or an expeditionary force of marines will do it."

A Few Good Hats - Gender Neutral

Political Correctness: Its force structure decimated by sequestration and budget cuts, the Marine Corps considers exchanging its proud and honored look for hats similar to the gendarmes who direct traffic in Paris. If sequestration´s annual spending cuts continue past this year, the Marine Corps will lose 8,000 in troop strength, Commandant Gen. James F. Amos told the Defense Writers Group in June. But those who remain will at least be fashion-conscious if a proposal for changes in their dress headgear goes forward. Men and women in the Marines

Junk Science: Al Gore, patron saint of climate fraud, argues with Australia´s prime minister that its brushfires are not caused by warming and that the record shows the koala bear, like the polar bear, is quite safe. They were the largest Australian bushfires in a populous region in recorded history, consuming half the state of Victoria, claiming 12 lives and destroying an estimated 1 million sheep and thousands of cattle. And they occurred in February 1851 during one of the coldest years on record. Bushfires have been part of Australian life for centuries

Energy: The Golden State´s governor has signed legislation that regulates but does not ban the technology that has sparked an energy boom nationwide — and which may yet restore the state to solvency. If any state were to ban hydraulic fracturing, commonly referred to as fracking, the process that releases oil and natural gas trapped in porous shale formations, one would think it would be California. Gov. Jerry Brown, who leads the government in a state that hosted Solyndra and embraces endangered bird-chopping wind turbines,

Scandal: A deadly battle involving grenades between a drug cartel and Mexican police has added to the toll of lives taken with weapons trafficked by suspects that U.S. officials watched but did not stop. The same Obama administration officials responsible for letting thousands of weapons walk into Mexico and right into the hands of drug cartels in Operation Fast and Furious also passed on several opportunities to arrest and prosecute an arms smuggler who was busy supplying the cartels with hand grenades. This according to a report by Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News, the one reporter

Corruption: The crash-prone government health-care site asks applicants if they want to register to vote as they try to sign up for ObamaCare. By sheer coincidence, a plurality of the uninsured are likely Democratic voters. Call it Motor Voter on steroids — the piggybacking of voter registration to an otherwise unrelated government function. Those trying to navigate Healthcare.gov, a website that looks and functions as if designed by the department of motor vehicles, are being asked if they want to register to vote just in time for crucial 2014 midterm elections

Regulation: From lost jobs to fewer hours to premium hikes that would make a loan shark drool, Barack Obama´s home state is a case study in why the first rule in health care reform, as in medicine, should be to do no harm. The president and his cohorts in the media have long accused Republicans of being out of touch with ordinary people. Remember the concocted story about President Bush the elder being so out of touch he was unfamiliar with supermarket bar-code scanners? But it´s President Obama who´s out of touch with ordinary people

Health Care: In a stunning admission, our Health and Human Services secretary admits ObamaCare is part of the fundamental transformation of America away from a free market in anything to a nanny state on steroids. Maybe Kathleen Sebelius was being sarcastic, or maybe she thought it might be a good way to reach the "young invincibles" who feel they had better things to do with their money than enroll in ObamaCare. But her recent appearance on Jon Stewart´s show on Comedy Central went about as well as ObamaCare´s train wreck of a rollout.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
