Washington Standard – Detective Who Led Epstein Investigation Died After “Brief Illness” At 50
Headline: ‘Think of your family‘: China threatens European citizens over Xinjiang protests
Two days after Abdujelil Emet sat in the public gallery of Germany’s parliament during a hearing on human rights, he received a phone call from his sister for the first time in three years. But the call from Xinjiang, in western China, was anything but a joyous family chat. It was made at the direction of Chinese security officers, part of a campaign by Beijing to silence criticism of policies that have seen more than a million Uighurs and other Muslim minorities detained in internment camps.
There is always a desire to build a time machine in syfi art that will take you back in time, to a better place.
The shark tooth dinosaurs ran Thailand in the past. The climate was different then, and I think that people can lay all that at the feet of the Siamraptor. The climate changed and they all died off.
It was fun – once. Not anymore.
We may have to revisit all of that, should the communists take power in America. Not today though. Thank you, President Trump.
We are truly living in The City of Brass.
I have two thoughts on open borders. It’s true the the drugs and illegal aliens can cross, but so can the cartels with really good quality US and foreign made, military grade weapons for sale. Of course, there are hundreds of tunnels under the border so even with the big beautiful wall, high value items can still make it through. So when it comes to Second Amendment issues, the cartels can supply better firearms than you can buy over the counter at the local gun store. The Democrat morons don’t get it, but who would expect them to? For every bolt action firearm that Beto’s Monkeys would seize, a hundred M-4’s with suppressors would come north across the open border that he yearns for. Squad Automatic Weapons and M-60s are readily available in cartel inventories. They also have an ample supply of M-2’s.
When I lived in a very affluent neighborhood in SoCal, I had Hollywood celebs living there, and other notables There were three homes used by cartels to move drugs (up) and money (south) within a quarter of a mile. I knew about them because knowing that sort of thing is what I do. (I have very few skill sets but that’s one of them) Try as I would, I couldn’t get the locals or USGOV to do anything about it. This is after I got out of the law enforcement biz and moved onto other rackets. Nobody did anything. I provided timely, accurate, fully vetted, information and – nothing. So I just said to myself, “self, time for me to go.” Then the Mohammedans built a mosque down the street and I said, “time to get serious about this.” Now I live at the White Wolf Mine, an hour’s drive from the nearest store.
Once you really understand how cartels move money and drugs, it’s even more disconcerting and even more pervasive than you or anyone would think. I’ve discussed that process at length on this blog over the past decade or so that it’s been up and running. Suffice to say, it can be stopped, but it requires the will to stop it. Cartels are not as organized as most people think. They exist to fix the price of street drugs primarily. That’s why when the local police seize twenty tons in Los Angeles, the price remains the same. No impact on price, or volume available on the street.
The cross-border drug business is not an invasion now. It’s American infrastructure. And anyone who would tell you differently is a liar or a fool.
The US continually walks a straight razor when it comes to Mexican sovereignty. The Mexicans aren’t a vassal state of America, and we could conquer Mexico before lunch militarily. But then you get into a ‘broke it/bought it’ scenario. The narcos are painfully aware of what an American military occupation of someplace like Sinaloa would look like and that it wouldn’t go down well for them. But full disclosure, it would take more than just Sinaloa. All of Mexico is in the same boat, and it’s all corrupt and US narcodollars made it so. I know that a lot of Americans don’t agree with that, but it is our insatiable desire for more drugs that has created this situation. Our moral rot. They’re just the pusher. Which means that a solution would require Americans to abjure drugs (hahaha).
The US is their market for drugs (above), for produce (and Mexico is an agricultural country), and their guarantor of security (Monroe Doctrine). They hate us and they can’t survive without us.
Back when I was running and gunning heavy in Mexico, I leaned on the Mexican Navy to put a torpedo into a drug submarine that was making the run between Mexican and US waters. The submarine was crewed partially by Russian mercenaries, and ran Sinaloa cartel loads. It had to snorkel most of the way because it was in ill repair and would have been an easy target. But they didn’t do it because they feared narco-retaliation. I blaggarded them for cowards, but they explained patiently that their families were targeted if they did anything like that. Horrible place to live, Fredd.
I don’t know whether she was on the payroll or not. And you know that I’d paint a scarlet letter on her if I knew that she was.
Fox signed the peace treaty with the Zapatistas in my office in Santa Ana, CA. It was done with very little fanfare, no media present. I think that it was 2001. Vincente Fox was banging Miss Mexico, Jacqueline Bracamontes, at the time and she was along for the signing. You can’t fault his taste in women. Fox was first and foremost a horn dog. His wife, Martha, handled most of the corruption. In that he was an old time Mexican politician, and possibly the last one to occupy the Presidential Palace. Just because Fox schmoozed did not mean that there was a pay off.
There is supposed to be a third Siccario movie in the works. The first two played like documentaries. You could include US politicians in it. Maybe AOC could play herself?
I discussed that above. It would require the American people to give up hard drugs. Maybe if Jesus were to return and kick ass? Other than that, I don’t see a solution that is in the slightest way meaningful.
The plotters and traitors thought it would be easy. Fortunately for us there were a few patriot in the mix, particularly at NSA, who called them on it. We owe debts of gratitude to them. And now that I’m back, we can work on the Chrome project.
LindaG – I feel for the leaders; but good on Trump for messing with the media.
Too late, Linda. It’s here. It’s just not so readily seen as it is in Mexico.
Yes, there are advantages to Camp David. And President Trump can commute on Marine One.
My take on the “war on drugs” is that it’s window dressing for people, who don’t care much about it. Propping up Mexico/Colombia, etc. was always more important from a geopolitical perspective than limiting the supply of narcotics at home.
Yes, I’ve noticed that President Trump plays chess and his enemies, including Hillary (The anointed one who had the election stolen…) play checkers.
I was wondering what happened to the Epstein thing. Of course the lead investigator died (of natural causes at age 50), because when you start poking into stuff like that (Vince Foster), the malfeasants of the matter will call in some chits, and you are gone.
We have been a banana republic for quite some time, now.
Thanks for the Mexico info- it is hard for a normal guy working a normal job to really get a sense of the utter jungleness of it all. Mao was right. Power comes from the barrel of a gun. And that is why they want to take them away.
Tail-lights? Cos you might miss the backend of a great big horse…
I bet you’ll see those twinkles on the wrong kinda tails sometime soon.
"Detective Who Led Epstein Investigation Died After “Brief Illness” At 50"
Uh huh…[All we hear from the MSM is: "Nothing to see here folks, move along…go back to watching the Kardashian's and yelling "IMPEACH TRUMP" at your screen.]
Another one added to the Clinton hit list…that's somewhere around 54 (that we know of). Reminds me the scene in the movie Dave:
Bob Alexander: I'm going to kill him.
Alan Reed: You can't kill a President.
Bob Alexander: He's not a President. He's an ordinary person. I can kill an ordinary person.
Alan Reed: Bob.
Bob Alexander: I can kill a hundred ordinary people.
Anyone with two operating brain cells sees the smoke/fire scenario operating yet NOTHING happens. Forget to pay your parking tickets and the SWAT team shows up at 3:00AM. But for murder…ahh…not so much. Enough to drive an "ordinary person" nuts. [As I comment from an undisclosed semi off-the-grid location in case I type in the wrong trigger keyword.]
That's what happens when you feed your horse too many light bulbs.
Mao was right about a lot of things, and unfortunately Mao was not exactly a glass half full thinker. Quite the opposite. And now we have Mao's evil twin Xi calling the shots in China. Literally.
I loved that movie ("Dave"). I think Bob Alexander should run for president. Oh, that's right…
So, when they pull back on the reins, do the brake lights come on?
Seriously great lines from that one…but they were supposed to be fiction. Now we are hearing things massively worse from the Lefty morons.
Bob Alexander: This is mine, Alan. All mine. I made him, I built him. And no Boy Scout is going to come in here and take it away from me, just because he happens to be Vice President of the United States.
Or this classic (said with total disdain):
Bob Alexander: What do you think you're doing?
Dave: What? Oh, you mean the press conference. I had a couple of ideas that I wanted to share with the country.
Bob Alexander: Share? Share? You don't call a press conference. I call a press conference. You're nothing. Do you understand? You're nobody.
Dave: I'm not nobody.
Bob Alexander: You're LINT! You're a FLEA! You're a BLIP!
Dave: Well… maybe I am. But you're fired.
Seems Trump does this regularly (the firing part). Gotta love it!
A good read, all. Thank you, LL.
Cattle are color blind to red and green,
their eyes do have color receptors in the yellow and blue spectrum.
They might follow the horses out of curiosity.
Those lights on the horses are a great idea, IMO, having been on horseback along roads and highways at night, usually chasing errant livestock.
She was all lit up, in a different way. Neat infographic.
