Mexico and Guatemala Agree on Comprehensive Immigration Reform

10 07 2014

Catazajá, Mexico

Guatemalans and Belizeans who sneak into Mexico across Mexico’s southern border will not be allowed to stay legally for longer than 72 hours.  They will be shipped out of Mexico expeditiously.

Northward.

NYP:

How the US gave guns to Mexican cartels

(snip)

‘It’s like the underwear gnomes,” my ATF colleague Lee Casa told me one time as we recounted the latest bizarre goings-on in Phoenix.

“What?” I asked.

“You ever watch ‘South Park’? There’s this episode where all the boys get their underwear stolen by these underwear gnomes. They track them down to get it back and one of them asks why they are stealing everyone’s underwear. The gnomes break out this PowerPoint and reveal their master plan: Phase One: Collect underpants . . . Phase Two: ? . . . Phase Three: Profit.”

“We’re doing the same thing,” he explained. “We know Phase One is ‘Walk guns’ and Phase Three is ‘Take down a big cartel!’ ”

Both of us were laughing now; a more fitting and appropriate allegory could never be found. Casa concluded, “Just nobody can figure out what the f–k Phase Two is!”

Aside from the fact that I think Gunrunner’s real purpose was an attempt on the part of the Obama administration to sandbag both 2A and immigration politics, if you want to believe that Gunrunner had any law enforcement utility, I think they were thinking that this was going to be the modern equivalent of nailing Al Capone and thereby squelching is outfit on Capone’s failure to pay import tariffs.  IOW, catch cartel members on some process gun/weapon crime, then get ‘em into Club Fed, then all the humpty dumpties will have a great fall off the wall.

It’s as if we actually think that catching Capone on a tax technicality is what ended the Sicilian Mafia.  When what really ended the Sicilian Mafia is what ends almost all mob/clan violence:  The repudiation of cousin marriage and tight endogamy, and the institution of outbreeding, which Sicilians both back in Sicily and their American diaspora didn’t do until shockingly recently.  Not recently in terms of my lifetime, but in terms relative to when white/European peoples in general did so.

Meanwhile, back at el rancho, Mexican drug/gang violence is just typical racial behavior, not a result of generations on end of kissing cousins.  Mexican drug gangs are the modern day equivalent of Indian tribes, (because they’re fundamentally the same Indo people).  Mexican cartels fighting over drug distribution routes is just about the same as two Indian tribes way back when fighting over the right to buffalo hunting territory.





Home Going

Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin

The way I read this, her husband took himself and his son home to Mexico.

So why undo that?

Because…the mother is still here doing those jobs that Americans won’t do.

Forbes:

Twitter And The Real Economy Of Jobs

But what about those lacking degrees from elite colleges? The economist Tyler Cowen suggests that the 85% of the population without the proper cognitive pedigree will need to adopt the survival strategies of the poor in Latin America, including a diet heavy in beans.

I guess this means we’re all beaners now.





TeePee For Their Bungholes

Here’s the story.

So obviously, here’s how I react:

I think the thing is sped up in order to fool the Googitburo’s censorship algorithms.





Necessary to the Security of a Free State

Mexico

Michoacanos are as mad as hell, and they’re not going to take it anymore.

Why are they so far succeeding when the official government war against the drug cartels have failed?  Because various cartels are the official government war against the cartels.

BTW, notice how many good stories we’ve seen in the WaPo since Bezos bought it?





Train Derailment

Mexico

Any other train derailment is NBD, just a big mess to clean up.

But when the train is THE BEAST, the consequences are a bit more drastic.
