Dallas — Eight suspects linked to the Jalisco New Generation Cartel in Mexico have been arrested in Dallas on federal drug charges, accused of trafficking methamphetamine and other drugs from a “super-lab” and selling them out of a used car dealership over the last year, authorities announced Wednesday. (Snip) The defendants are: Marco Antonio Gonzalez, 31; Ricardo Mendez-Negrete, 42; Jose Trinidad Medina Tapia, 31; Miguel Carrillo-Ayala, 38; Alma Zoraida Borrayo-Villasenor, 32; Javier Guizar-Hernandez, 28; Hector Garcia-Gomez, 36; and Ivan Gonzalez, 22. Borrayo-Villasenor, Carrillo-Ayala, Tapia and Guizar-Hernandez are Mexican citizens and were here illegally,
Comments: Mexico´s contribution to the balance of trade: huge amounts of meth and heroin brought over our wide-open southern border. Imagine the cost to the taxpayers in supporting the drug addicts in hospitals and in prisons, not to mention the cost to people whom the addicts burgle and rob in order to support their habits.
Coming from a retired LEO...this is a drop in the bucket. Despite the bleeding hearts "oh it´s the children it´s woman" bovine scatology. It is cartel, it is drugs, human trafficking, murder, money laundering and sex business. It is what it is and it´s not "JUST" Mexican citizens here illegally. it is Guatamalians...MS 13..educate yourself.
A federal judge tossed a lawsuit Thursday that would have pushed the State Department and FBI to do more to try to track down Hillary Clinton’s emails, ruling the government has done all it reasonably could to locate the former secretary of state’s messages. Two watchdog groups, Judicial Watch and Cause of Action, had sued in 2015 demanding the government recover all of Mrs. Clinton’s emails, saying she violated open-records laws by not preserving her messages. U.S. District Judge James E. Boasberg, though, said the FBI did what it could, and did manage to recover thousands of messages Mrs. Clinton
There is something mysterious and hot lurking beneath the surface of the Antarctic ice. Now Nasa says that it might have found the source of that strange heating – a “mantle plume” – or upwelling of abnormally hot rock, that lies deep beneath the surface. The heat is causing the surface of the ice to melt and crack, resulting in rivers and other disruption to Antarctica. Around 30 years ago, a scientist at the University of Colorado Denver said that there might be a mantle plume under a region of the continent known as Marie Byrd Land. That hypothesis helped explain some strange
An illegal immigrant “Dreamer” who became the face of the pro-DACA movement earlier this year after getting deported was arrested this week for trying to sneak back into the U.S. without permission, the Border Patrol said Wednesday. Juan Manuel Montes-Bojorquez had claimed to be the first person protected by DACA to have been deported by the Trump administration, and was suing to regain entry to the U.S. A judge had seemed sympathetic to his case. (Snip) Mr. Montes had tried to sneak back into the U.S. in February after his initial deportation and was caught. The government said that
The Palm Springs, Calif., City Council is entirely LGBT or queer after two new members were elected to the council Tuesday. Lisa Middleton made history Tuesday as the first openly transgender candidate elected to a nonjudicial office in California. Christy Holstege, who identifies as bisexual, won the second open seat on the city council. (Snip) Middleton and Holstege join gay councilmembers Geoff Kors and J.R. Roberts. Other transgender candidates were elected to office Tuesday — significant victories for an oft marginalized community. Transgender woman Andrea Jenkins was elected to the Minneapolis City Council while Danica Roem of Virginia beat 13-term Republican
One of the black Air Force Academy cadets who claimed he was targeted by racial slurs scrawled outside his dorm room actually wrote the hateful messages himself, school officials said this week. Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria — whose passionate message to cadets at the Air Force Academy’s Preparatory School in Colorado went viral after five black cadets found the words “go home” and an accompanying racial slur outside their dorm in September — confirmed the finding and reiterated the need for inclusiveness at the academy outside Colorado Springs. “Regardless of the circumstances under which those words were written, they were
Former Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer admitted on Capitol Hill Wednesday that the Silicon Valley giant still doesn’t understand how hackers managed to compromise the information of billions of Yahoo users. In an opening statement to the Senate Commerce Committee, Mayer apologized to Yahoo’s users, blamed “Russian agents” for the breach and said that Yahoo quickly worked to protect user accounts and contact law enforcement. The digital diva — who left the helm of Yahoo earlier this year after it was acquired by Verizon — was forced to testify with a subpoena after she refused several requests to testify voluntarily, according
The Minneapolis City Council was poised for historic change Tuesday as voters elected the city’s first transgender council member, on a night that saw a handful of veteran council members from across the city struggling to hold on against strong challenges. “I’m feeling elated. Ecstatic. Extraordinarily happy right now,” Andrea Jenkins, who becomes the first transgender woman of color elected to public office in a major U.S. city, said from her election night party at Curran’s Restaurant. “I’m really, really deeply proud of my community.” At least one longtime council incumbent seen as vulnerable seized an early victory: Lisa Goodman,
A black Kansas man has admitted he put racist graffiti on his own car as a Halloween prank that got out of hand, police said Monday. Photographs posted on social media Wednesday showed the car covered with racial slurs against blacks and messages that included ´Go Home,´ ´Date your own kind,´ and ´Die.´ The vehicle, covered in graffiti scrawled with washable paint, was parked Wednesday at an apartment complex near Kansas State University and the incident fueled racial tensions at the university and in the community. An emergency meeting of the Black Student Union called that evening drew concerned administrators
Dozens of warships believed to contain the remains of thousands of British, American, Australian, Dutch and Japanese servicemen from the second world war have been illegally ripped apart by salvage divers, the Guardian can reveal. An analysis of ships discovered by wreck divers and naval historians has found that up to 40 second world war-era vessels have already been partially or completely destroyed. Their hulls might have contained the corpses of 4,500 crew. (Snip) These submerged ships are one of the last sources of “low background steel”, virtually radiation-free and vital for some scientific and medical equipment.
A newly declassified FBI dossier on the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. alleges the civil rights leader had a possible lovechild and once bedded folk singer Joan Baez. The scandalous 20-page report – included in the latest document dump of files related to the JFK assassination – says that “a responsible Los Angeles individual” informed an agent that King had an affair with the wife of a prominent black dentist and may have fathered a baby girl. (Snip) The dossier also alleges that King had a proclivity for orgies – and that the frisky revelries even took place at workshops where
An extra $5 million (£3.8m) has been released to control the deadly plague outbreak in Madagascar which has now reached ´crisis´ point. The World Bank has answered desperate cries from aid workers for emergency funding to tackle the ´worst outbreak in 50 years´. Cases of the plague have spiraled by 37 per cent in less than a week, and the most recent statistics show at least 1,800 people are now infected and 127 deaths have been recorded. (Snip) The ´truly unprecedented´ outbreak has prompted warnings it will spread to nine nearby countries - South Africa, Seychelles, La Reunion, Mozambique, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Comoros
Kevin Spacey turned the set of “House of Cards” into a sick, sexual playground — which he used to harass and abuse young staffers, a report says. Eight people who currently work on the show or worked on it in the past have come forward and accused the Oscar winning actor of misconduct, with at least one person claiming he was sexually assaulted. (Snip) “It was a toxic environment for young men who had to interact with him at all in the crew, cast, background actors,” he said. The individual described one incident in which Spacey unabashedly grabbed his crotch
UPDATE 2:14 p.m.: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) called on the party´s nominee for Senate in Alabama, Roy Moore, to withdraw from the race if a new report that he pursued teenage girls in his 30´s is true. "If these allegations are true, he must step aside." The Washington Post published the story about Moore on Thursday. ORIGINAL STORY: Republican senators reacted with alarm to a published report that Roy Moore, the Republican Senate nominee in Alabama, initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl when Moore was 32, the Washington Post reported on Thursday. “It’s a nasty story,
I argued that conservatives should disassociate themselves from Roy Moore and denounce him weeks before credible allegations surfaced today that he preyed on teenage girls, one only 14 years old. So I’m pretty locked-in. I suppose it’s good that some Republicans see this as a bridge too far. But it’s a little hard for me to focus on that upside when you think about what they considered to be acceptable until now. Still, it’s good to know where the line is. You can set up shady charities for profit. You can call for religious tests and champion theocracy. You can Link repaired
When California lawmakers return to the Capitol in January, the state chapter of the NAACP will be seeking their support for a campaign to remove “The Star-Spangled Banner” as the national anthem. The organization last week began circulating among legislative offices two resolutions that passed at its state conference in October: one urging Congress to rescind “one of the most racist, pro-slavery, anti-black songs in the American lexicon” as the national anthem, and another in support of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who launched a protest movement against police brutality among professional athletes by kneeling when “The Star-Spangled
Maybe it was that whole “low energy” thing. In surprisingly undiplomatic terms for elder statesmen, George W. Bush and his father, George H.W. Bush, bash President Trump in a soon-to-be released book. While both of the former presidents vowed when they left office not to speak ill of their successors — a pledge they’ve kept for the most part — there’s just something about Donald J. Trump that they can’t stand. (Snip) “You can either exploit the anger, incite it, or you can come up with ideas to deal with it.” Jeb offered real solutions, “but it didn’t fit with
Former interim DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile said the Democratic party was "leeched of its vitality" by former President Barack Obama and others in the months leading up to the 2016 presidential campaign. (Snip) Obama "used the party to provide for political expenses like gifts to donors, and political travel," Brazile wrote, adding that the politician also used DNC funds for "his pollster and focus groups" later into his second term although he couldn´t run for president again. "This was not working to strengthen the party. He left it in debt. Hillary bailed it out so that she could control it, and Debbie went
The Washington Post is imminently planning to run a piece targeting Judge Roy Moore, claiming that he engaged in inappropriate conduct with four teenage girls thirty-four years ago. The alleged incidents, all of which Moore strongly denies, allegedly took place between 1977 and 1982. Breitbart News obtained details of the forthcoming Post story from the newspaper’s letter detailing the allegations sent to Moore’s campaign for comment. “These allegations are completely false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign,” Moore said in a statement obtained by Breitbart News. Separately, Moore’s
Hillary Clinton is in secret negotiations with Christopher Steele, the author of the infamous Russian dossier, to purchase a second report that allegedly contains salacious new charges against President Trump, according to several sources with personal knowledge of the transaction. The talks with Steele, a former British spy, are being carried out by Hillary´s former campaign aides, who do not hide their bitterness over the shocking loss of the White House to Donald Trump, these sources say. ´Hillary´s people have been secretly in touch with Steele and are close to making a deal with him on opposition research that he claims has
Following a year of layoffs, ESPN is expected to have another round after Thanksgiving. Over 100 staffers could lose their jobs in the layoffs, including positions on the television side, producers, executives and those in digital and technology, according to Sports Illustrated. SportsCenter is expected to be "hit hard" and some on-air talent could be out of a job. ESPN declined to comment to Sports Illustrated about the looming job cuts. Layoffs have been occurring at ESPN multiple times throughout the last two years. In October 2015, the company laid off over 300 employees and this past April over 100 Headline resplit
The Country Music Association Awards got very political very quickly when the hosts opened Wednesday night´s show by mocking President Donald Trump Country music superstars Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood kicked off the 51s annual awards show by wearing eclipse sunglasses, poking fun at the commander-in-chief - who at one point looked at August´s solar eclipse without wearing eye protection. The pair also sang an opening song with the lyrics ´Maybe next time he´ll think before he tweets´, a play on Underwood´s hit song ´Before He Cheats´.
WASHINGTON—Illinois Democratic Rep. Danny Davis says he sees ‘nothing wrong’ with the California ACLU’s effort to ban the Star Spangled Banner as the country’s national anthem. “Well, you know, one of the things about the Constitution that our forefathers wrote, and basically, there were none of our foremothers that were there. There were none of our fore-sisters there. There are changes that can take place and there is room to change,” he told TheDC Thursday. Alice Huffman, president of the California chapter of the NAACP, declared the anthem to be “racist” and that it “doesn’t represent our community. It’s anti-black
Sen. Bob Corker said Wednesday he will hold a hearing next week looking at presidential authority to use nuclear weapons, in a move that seems targeted at President Trump. Mr. Corker, a Tennessee Republican and chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee who has repeatedly tussled with Mr. Trump, said members of both parties have questioned what powers the president has to use nuclear weapons. Mr. Corker said it’s been more than four decades since Congress has looked at the issue, and it seemed the time was ripe. “This discussion is long overdue, and we look forward to examining this critical issue,” he
Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore (R) has turned down an opportunity to debate his opponent, Doug Jones (D), because the differences between the two candidates are "crystal clear," according to Moore´s campaign. "While we appreciate the invitation from WHNT, the differences between the two candidates are crystal clear," Moore´s campaign chairman, Bill Armistead, said in a statement to WHNT-TV in northern Alabama. The CBS affiliate said on Wednesday that Moore´s campaign had declined to debate Jones, adding that the station would have allowed both campaigns to agree on a preferred format and offered six potential dates between Nov. 27 and Dec. 7.
