Letter from Mexican Ambassador
Dampens Hope for Early
Release of Jon Hammar

FoxNews, by Joseph J. Kolb

Posted By:dman, 12/20/2012 3:23:35 PM

Any hope that Jon Hammar, the Marine imprisoned in Mexico on a disputed gun charge, might be freed in time for Christmas has apparently been dashed by a terse letter a top Mexican diplomat sent to Hammar’s congresswoman.(Snip) "As you know well, Mexico has had very stringent gun-control laws in place for many years, and have reinforced their application as a result of the flow of weapons illicitly purchased in the U.S. and then trafficked into Mexico and into the hands of transnational criminal organizations," Sarukhan wrote.
Headline resplit and Snip added by staff.

Comments:
Put the "Hammar" down. Close the border and ban travel.

Boycott Mexico for vacations, go to Jamaica instead. How about we send back 10 million of the illegals here if you don´t release him by midnight?
Obama spent one million dollars for a state dinner for the Mexican President. I suggest he get on his phone right now, OR wait to start his luxury vacation until Hammar is released.

I am angry at the Mexican Governbment as well but posters please put your anger onto the correct culprit. This is a very thinly veiled reprimand for fast and furious. Hammer has had the incredible misfortune of becoming a disposable pawn in a nast dispute between Mexico and The US over Fast and Furios. Wasn´t it only a few days ago that another fast and furious gun was found at the seen of a drug cartel shootout? One in which a young mexican beuty pageant contestant was killed?

Mexico has been angry about F&F for some time but has been completely ignored while the One ran an election campaign that could not be marred by hundreds of innocent dead bosies.

The MSM had no problem ignoring dead women and children across the Border. Now Zippy is in for four more and Mexico is going to get hois attention one way or another.

Pray for this fine young man, he is going to need all of our prayers. The Mexicans are holding him accountable for the crimes of the Holder Justice department and our disgusting MSM and Leftist administration is just fine with that.

As a1957-1961 USAF vet I have asked the American Legion to lead the effort to instantly request US Citizens vacation in some other place then Mexico since the ruling class in Mexico is smitten with anti-US stands of all kinds...including holding US Marine Jon Hammar.

What´s wrong with a few sanctions? Our gunrunning President and Attorney General aren´t going to touch this and are abetted by the wuss MSM. Words and outrage are getting public attention but, a corrupt and lawless country like Mexico couldn´t care less. Why not introduce legislation to impose sanctions if this Marine isn´t released such as imposing travel restrictions to the Yucatan. Cancun and Cozumel would be fishing villages again in a year.

Sad as this situation is, the reality is you don´t bring weapons or even ammo into Mexico. I have no idea what this guy was thinking. Who needs a shotgun to vacation in a Central American country? Bottom line, you don´t mess with Mexican authorities. Ask any border state resident.

Sounds like revenge for Fast and Furious. Which I don´t blame the Mexicans for. Afterall, they can´t get to Holder or the others except to hold this poor jarhead in the prison. They won´t starve him or hurt him, but they´ll keep him long enough to get what they want. Holder better be ready to cough up whatever it is too

An innocent American Marine is in jail, paying the price for the Fast and Furious stupidity cooked up by this administration.

Aren´t you proud, America?

The President of your once great United States doesn´t carry enough clout to get an innocent American Marine out of a Mexican prison.

Belize is cleaner, prettier, safer for the family, and far friendlier. Great diving sites. Costa Rica is also worth a look -- surprisingly cheap airfare and no drug war going on.

Well, if President Obama made a friendly telephone call to the new Mexican Presidente and said that he was going to issue an Executive Order stopping the issuance of US visas to Mexican citizens until this US citizen was released and returned to the USA, it would be no time before the guy was on a commercial jet heading back to the USA, probably in a first class seat.

If that does not happen, chances are that he will have to mark time in Mexico until his Mexican judicial hearing in January, at which time he will be ordered deported to the USA. The Mexicans already tried to extort money from the guy´s family but that failed, so the Mexicans are quickly running out of money making options, and the guy is causing the Mexicans a lot of bad PR in this country.

If you think their gun laws are very stringent, check out their illegal immigration laws. They do NOT hand out drivers´ licenses to illegal immigrants in Mexico! They make the US look like a wussy country.

#9: he was given bogus information from OUR border patrol. The gun he had is actually NOT a military weapon according to Mexican authorities. What happened? He neglected to bribe the right person.

Our government is ignoring this. They are allowing this man -- this hero who has served tours of duty for our nation -- to rot in prison and done nothing. Barack Obama´s administration does not care about Americans. Does not care about military.

Call your congress people and let them know you will boycott Mexico and its interests until Jon Hammar is free. And also let your congress people know that you will boycott their interests until they make a concerted effort to bring this about.

National Harbor, Maryland -- On Thursday, conservatives were offered a rare treat while attending the CPAC conference at the Gaylord Resort, settled above the Potomac River in National Harbor, Maryland. Mark Levin, a New York Times bestselling author, firebrand conservative radio talk show host, and extraordinary legal scholar, was honored with the inaugural Citizens United Andrew Breitbart Defender of the First Amendment Award. The afternoon event combined a tribute to Levin with a thoughtful remembrance of the late Andrew Breitbart, who died two years ago this month.

Out of the Republican retreat on Maryland’s Eastern shore comes word that the House leadership is raising the white flag of surrender on immigration. The GOP will agree to halt the deportation of 12 million illegal aliens and sign on to a blanket amnesty. It only asks that the 12 million not be put on a path to citizenship. Sorry, but losers do not dictate terms. Rich Trumka of the AFL-CIO says amnesty is no longer enough. Illegal aliens must be put on a path to citizenship and given green cards to work – and join unions.

Highly sensitive U.S. military equipment stored in Libya was stolen over the summer by groups likely aligned and working with terrorist organizations, State Department sources told Fox News -- in raids that contributed to the decision to pull Special Forces personnel from the country. The stolen equipment had been used by U.S. Special Forces stationed in the country. Lost in the raids in late July and early August were dozens of M4 rifles, night-vision technology and lasers used as aiming devices that are mounted on guns and can only be seen with night-vision equipment.

Sen.

In a surprise move, Russia promised Monday to push its ally Syria to place its chemical weapons under international control and then dismantle them quickly to avert U.S. strikes. (snip) "If the establishment of international control over chemical weapons in that country would allow avoiding strikes, we will immediately start working with Damascus," Lavrov said. "We are calling on the Syrian leadership to not only agree on placing chemical weapons storage sites under international control, but also on its subsequent destruction and fully joining the treaty on prohibition of chemical weapons," he said.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

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."

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
