A modern take on tail lights. Brig, would cows respect those horses…or not? LSP, did that Arab girl who did you wrong have that sort of gear? If so, maybe she was justified in jilting you?

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.
