NORTH CAROLINA SHERIFFS, DEALING WITH CARTEL VIOLENCE AND DRUGS, CALL FOR CONGRESS TO FUND WALL

North Carolina Sheriffs, Dealing With Cartel Violence, Call for Congress to Fund Wall

January 1, 2019 Updated: January 2, 2019

More than 1,400 miles north of the southwest border, sheriffs are battling drug trafficking, overdoses, gang and cartel violence, and human trafficking.

“If something gets through the border, within a few days, two or three days, it’s across this country,” said Rockingham County Sheriff Sam Page.

Sheriffs in North Carolina are calling on Congress to approve funding for a border wall and better border security.

North Carolina has become a major hub for the transport and distribution of wholesale cocaine and other drugs throughout the northeastern corridor, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

Page said he does what he can to support the sheriffs situated in counties along the southwest border.

“If we can support them, it prevents a lot of those drugs from coming in and getting into our communities here in the interior United States,” Page said.

“If we fail to secure our borders, every sheriff in America will become a border sheriff.”

Alamance County Sheriff Terry Johnson said his county has huge problems with the Sinaloa cartel and its drug trafficking operations.

Alamance is right on the intersection of two major interstates, I-40 and I-95, and nearby city Greensboro has become the drug trafficking hub for the southeastern United States, Johnson said.

The 10 best things Trump did in 2018

By Marc Thiessen    December 31, 2018

In his second year in office, the list of extraordinary things President Trump has done, for good and ill, continued to grow. Today, I offer my annual list of the 10 best things Trump has done in office. (In my next column, I will give you my list of the 10 worst.)

10.
He has secured the release of 19 people, including 16 Americans, from foreign captivity. When Pastor Andrew Brunson was freed by Turkey, he became the 19th captive released thanks to Trump. Others include: four held by North Korea; an aid worker and her husband held by Egypt; three UCLA basketball players and a Texas businesswoman held by China; a couple and their three children held by the Taliban; a former CIA officer held by Portugal; and two citizens held by Venezuela. That’s more Americans freed in two years than President Barack Obama got released in eight. And unlike Obama, Trump did it without releasing terrorist leaders or sending planeloads of cash to rogue regimes, creating incentive for more hostage taking.

9.
He delivered for the “forgotten Americans.” The Trump boom is benefiting those left behind by the Obama economy. Manufacturing jobs grew at the fastest rate in 23 years and the unemployment rate for Americans without a high school diploma reached the lowest point ever recorded. The Wall Street Journal reports that wages rose 3.1 percent — the biggest jump since 2009 — and that “low-skilled workers are among the biggest beneficiaries.”

8.
He worked with Democrats and Republicans to pass important legislation. It didn’t get a lot of attention, but Trump got a lot done on a bipartisan basis, including criminal justice reform, opioid and sex trafficking legislation, and a new “Right to Try” law giving dying Americans access to experimental medications.

7.
He has ushered in a golden age for women in the CIA. Trump not only appointed Gina Haspel as the agency’s first female director but also made Elizabeth Kimber the first woman to lead the agency’s clandestine service — rewarding the CIA’s “band of sisters” who have toiled to keep the country safe since 9/11.

6.
His push to expand domestic energy production bore fruit. This year the United States passed both Saudi Arabia and Russia as the world’s top oil producer.

ON THE BORDER IN EL PASO

You need to have a stiff drink in your hand before you read this !   Please share with your friends.   Nancy  

Invasion and colonization…
All on your dime.

While President Trump railed against a migrant caravan wending its way north through Mexico this week, hundreds of Central American immigrant families had already arrived at the border and been released into the U.S. by authorities.

The influx, unrelated to the caravan, has crowded immigration holding areas and detention centers across the Southwest. The Border Patrol has released so many families, advocacy groups in Arizona and Texas have had to house them in churches and motels.

In El Paso, the nonprofit Annunciation House shelter expected to take in 1,200 migrants this week and 1,500 more next week.

“We’re in effect receiving a caravan a month,” said Ruben Garcia, the shelter’s director, after serving pizza to immigrant families staying in 70 hotel rooms his group rented this week at a nightly cost of $3,500.

As he spoke, a Border Patrol agent called and asked Garcia whether he could shelter an additional 80 immigrants on Thursday. Garcia agreed — he had just heard from a church willing to take in up to 90 people, the latest of 16 religious groups in El Paso and nearby Las Cruces, N.M., to volunteer. He appealed to another church late Tuesday to help. His group runs on volunteers and donations.

“As the flow increases, I could say to Border Patrol I can’t accept any more. But I won’t, because I know what those holding cells are like. I want to expand our capacity,” Garcia said late Tuesday as he waited for two Border Patrol buses to arrive with the 80 migrants.

 

The Border Patrol caught a record 16,658 immigrant family members crossing illegally in September, a White House spokesman said this week. More than 161,000 immigrant family members were caught or turned themselves in during the fiscal year that ended last month, 42% more than in any previous year, the spokesman said.

With yet another caravan of people from Central America  headed to our country and claiming asylum, it is time to settle this problem of illegal immigration.  The late Charles Krauthammer presents a common sense plan that hopefully Congress will adopt once this incredibly divisive midterm election is over.   Nancy

THE PEOPLE SMUGGLING INDUSTRY – BILL O’REILLY

THE PEOPLE SMUGGLING INDUSTRY

by Bill O’Reilly   June 21, 2018

 

It is quite apparent that the national press in America is no longer concerned with finding the truth about important matters.  Ideology and the crass pursuit of profits have pretty much destroyed honest journalism in this country.

A vivid example is the chaos surrounding the southern border.  Millions of foreign born people have illegally crossed from Mexico and congress still cannot come up with policies that might stem that tide.  The truth about what is happening down there is horrifying but largely unreported.

Smuggling human beings into the USA is now an enormous criminal enterprise that operates openly in Central America and Mexico.  The process begins with the “vaquetones,” usually young men who scour poor neighborhoods for desperate people who want to live in America.  The vaquetones (translation: the brazen) direct the migrants to the actual smugglers called coyotes, a term invented in the 19th century to describe Mexicans who provided laborers to the Southwestern United States.

ICE RAIDS DOZENS OF CONVENIENCE STORES IN MASSIVE MOVE

Tuesday, July 25th, 2017

 

35 out of 60  people  have been indicted by a Federal grand jury so far ( names listed below).  See if you can see a pattern in their names !      Thanks to Mary Frances Forrester for sharing this article.     Nancy
… But Look What the Media’s Hiding

President Trump unleashed ICE once again this week, this time deploying its Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) unit, along with the DEA to arrest dozens of convenience store owners across 4 states.
Over 60 people were arrested, and already 35 of them have been indicted by a Federal grand jury, with federal conspiracy charges for money launderingdistributing controlled substances and trafficking contraband cigarettes.
The AP carried this story:
(T)he suspects conspired for more than 2 years to buy contraband cigarettes in St. Louis, a low tax market, while transporting and distributing them in Chicago, Illinois, and New Jersey, which are high tax markets. The store owners are accused of using several convenience stores that they operated to create the appearance of legal cigarette purchases.
Illegal profits form the contraband cigarette sales were laundered through accounts associated with the stores, and used to manufacture and distribute illegal controlled substances.
A synthetic drug, K-2, was sold every day from a handful of the convenience stores. Authorities said the store owners manufactured synthetic drugs themselves by importing chemicals from China.
“The collaboration with our federal and local law enforcement partners is the key to breaking criminal enterprises in this area,” said Special Agent in Charge James M. Gibbons of HSI Chicago.
Synthetic drugs that are sold as substitutes for cocaine and methamphetamine, are neither legal nor safe,” said James P. Shroba, Special Agent in Charge of the DEA St. Louis Division. “These substances were never intended for human consumption and only serve to satisfy the avarice of the seller.”
If convicted, the defendants face a maximum of five to 20 years in prison and the a $1 million dollar fine.
But here’s what the Associated “Press” didn’t think you needed to know…the names of those indicted.

JIHADI DRUGS

THIS IS YOUR JIHAD ON DRUGS

MARCH 7, 2016

 

Paul Rexton Kan is Professor of National Security at the U.S. Army War College and the author of Drugs and Contemporary Warfare (Potomac Books, 2009) and Cartels at War (Potomac, 2012). His forthcoming book is Drug Trafficking and International Security (Rowman and Littlefield, 2016). The views expressed do not represent the U.S. government.


MARCH 7, 2016

Santa Claus is commonly imagined as a jolly, benevolent figure who delivers presents to deserving children all over the world. However, another version of Santa Claus exists in the organized crime underworld of Belgium where a Moroccan named Khalid Zerkani is commonly known as “Papa Noel.” Before his arrest, Zerkani would routinely handout money and presents to at-risk youth in the Molenbeek neighborhood of Brussels, luring them into his organization. Unlike ordinary organized crime groups that engage in illegal activities for personal enrichment, Zerkani’s group used its criminal proceeds to finance trips of recruits from Europe to join the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). One notorious recruit of Zerkani’s was Abdelhamid Abaaoud — the ringleader of the Paris terrorist attacks.

The link between crime, radicalism, and ISIL has only recently come into greater focus. Oil smuggling, extortion, and sex trafficking in ISIL-controlled territory are well-known, yet other crimes like drug production, trafficking, and consumption are not. It is important to better understand drug use and the drugs trade because both are helping ISIL commit atrocities and wage its campaign of terror. Viewing ISIL and other jihadist groups as mere collections of drug-crazed fanatics, however, would be a caricature. Organizations like ISIL use drugs for tactical, operational, and strategic reasons that are historically consistent with the behavior of other violent groups in the past. It is worth considering drug consumption within ISIL and other jihadist groups as we consider how to fight them.
