One of the “Drug War” casualties in Juarez wasn’t a Non-Combatant…

He was an El Paso Texas County Sheriffs deputy and a jail guard PLUS… They don’t know who the shooters were, so how did they assign the Identification and Motive that they’re drug cartel? Kind of jumping the “gun” there, right?
I can think of quite a few El Paso County and City cops who piss people off with their arrogant and abusive behavior. It wouldn’t be too very unlikely that somebody who the cop had abused in the County Jail recognized him, saw a whole sky full of red and had a gun, and popped him off. People from Juarez and El Paso are really one city. It just has an international border running through the middle of downtown.
The “Innocent Victims” count they scream about is very misleading as well, the “drug dealers” who have been popped off by the Mexican Federales and their American “advisers” are convicted after they’re already DEAD. That’s always an easy conviction to obtain. Judges and prosecutors look the other way when a Cop shoots somebody. The only people who most DEFINITELY aren’t “civilians” in this fight, therefore, are the Badges. When the Police cap off a kid or several kids while blowing away a suspected drogadero the excuse is the same as when “our” Army blows away kids in Afghanistan or Iraq, “the ‘BAD GUYS’ were hiding behind civilians”.

Kidnap and Torture… Corporate Failure in Mexico…

Man is kidnapped in front of his wife, taken to a secret prison and tortured for 7 months… government stonewalling, …CIA?
According to the Propaganda, Narco Gangs in Mexico. The way the story is slanted, the Mexican Federal Government is a “failed state” and the country is run by Terrorists.
Like, yeah… Ford Motors, Coca-Cola, Baxter Pharmaceuticals.. oh, not THOSE Terrorists.
So are “we” going to mount Operation Mexican Freedom? Go in and occupy their country, set up a(nother) Puppet government backed by Run By U.S. troops? Maybe set up arbitrary checkpoints to limit the travel of the native population…
We already did. 165 years ago, to a third of the land area of their country, set up arbitrary boundary lines which they can only cross with the Royal Permission of the U.S. Government. Knocked the Mexican Republic, the parts “our” Corporate Government didn’t outright Conquer errr.. “Liberate”, down to a shadow state run by the French, aka Holy Roman Empire.

Colorado Springs power plants not among world’s 200 dirtiest by much

CARMA map as simplified by FORBESGood news, Colorado Spring’s main power plant is not among the world’s 200 biggest carbon offender power plants. But our neighbors are. One quarter of the world’s dirtiest power plants (53) are in the US. All in red states, because the uneducted are the new black. Actually in the West many of these coal plants are foisted on the Indians, the enduring black.

Subcomandante Marcos on LA OTRA

EZLN Zapatistas Subcomandante MarcosReading more about the Tohono O’odham, I came across this speech by the EZLN’s masked leader Subcomandante Marcos, delivered at a 2006 tribal gathering of SW Native American insurgents. It’s about the other Mexico, in solidarity with the other Americas: “La Otra.”
 
Compared his words to President Obama today telling the tribal summit in DC: “You will not be forgotten.” Sounds like a eulogy.

John Brown, from a grateful people

John BrownThis weekend marks the 150th anniversary of John Brown’s raid on Harpers Ferry, an attempt to appropriate from the US armory to defend a slavery free territory. The already notorious anti-slavery evangelist had lost the earlier Free State sanctuaries Palmyra and Osawatomie. On October 16-17, 1859, the band of 22 abolitionists and free men, held off the townsmen and US Marines, until ten were killed and five escaped. The seven survivors were hanged, including Brown, who said at the scaffold: “I, John Brown, am now quite certain that the crimes of this guilty land will never be purged away but with blood.”
 
The raid on Harpers Ferry set into motion the fight in earnest to emancipate the southern slaves, ending 305 years of American slavery. Argentina, Ecuador, Chile, Central America, Mexico, Bolivia, Uruguay, Venezuela, and all British, French, Danish, Dutch, and Portuguese colonies, had already abolished slavery between 1811 and 1863. The US was followed by Cuba then Brazil in 1888.

Columbus fall from grace not predicted by Mayan Long Count Calendar

1977 Playboy cartoonFor centuries, we’ve had only engravings to depict the Christopher Columbus discovery of the New World. With the moving pictures of today (a growing number in color according to IMdB), you’d think by now one or two would have caught the real Admiral Cristóbal Colón in blood-red technicolor, terrorizing his new minions with cruel Spanish steel.

2p, 2p and Honduras… and Mexico… and Nicaragua… and…

I don’t know if I’ve published this here or not or how I packaged it. But for background, the “p” stands for “piastre” a South VietNamese coin that was worth a little less than a quarter of a U.S. penny. This was the “Great Free Market Opportunity” our government was sending people to fight and die to defend. The way I heard it on some occasions it’s used to condemn the VietNamese people.”How nasty and vile and filthy they are” for living in such poverty.

Phony Sedon-y meet Social Ecology

hikers-Boynton-Sedona
I mentioned in my last post that I’d had a visceral negative reaction to Sedona — undeniably one of the most beautiful places on earth — which surprised and dismayed me. I had a vague sense that I was offended by the opulence and pseudo-spiritualism of the place, but that didn’t completely explain my snarky attitude which, I’ve come to understand, usually masks a deeper response to perceived injustice or dashed hopes.

Swine Flu alarm raised to nincompoop

There it is, health crisis confirmed. Today the WHO raised the pandemic alert level to five. Confirmed cases of Swine Flu H1N1 have now spread to ten countries and our health is in the hands of idiots. Conniving idiots. This morning President Obama announced the dreaded first US fatality, but declined to reveal specifics out of a concern for patient confidentiality. Through the day we learned that the US death wasn’t exactly representative of an accelerated infection rate. In reality the Swine Flu victim was a Mexican 23-month-old who’d been brought to the US for treatment. However, when CDC director Dr. Richard Besser was interviewed for the evening news, the alarm theme turned once again on the virus’s escalation with the death of the American child in Texas.

Swine flu pandemic, my ass

1976 swine flu epidemic mandated vaccinationDo you have an uneasy sense that someone’s trying to pull the wool over your eyes? Does the hullabaloo over a looming swine flu pandemic seem a bit overblown? The World Health Organization (WHO) has raised the pandemic alert level (a 6-point scale) to 4 and is considering moving it to 5 today, with only 7 confirmed deaths worldwide! Keep in mind that seasonal flu kills 40,000 every year in the US alone, so why the sudden grave concern?

Those Mexican Swine

Paula Dean spokeswomanThey’re blaming the Mexicans, or pigs, but the wrong pigs. Pork industry spokespeople are trying to take the focus off the large factory hog farms operated by Smithfield Foods in the vicinity of La Gloria, MX, where the outbreak started. Smithfield is the largest supplier of US pork.

The panic in Mexico begins to spread

sick pigThe center of the panic is El Distrito Federal, Mexico, which if you think about it a little, is exactly where one might think that an epidemic of Swine Flu might begin to happen. But jokes aside, this is a serious situation and this disease has already spread to the US, though the panic about it hasn’t quite yet. Instead, I would call it an Unease. How is it in Mexico City though? Mexico flu: Your experiences from the BBC.


How long can the US and Mexico militarily occupy Ciudad Juarez?

Felipe CalderonCiudad Juarez is a city of 1,500,000 plus people directly opposite El Paso, Texas, and Presidente Fecal Calderon and his Gringo manager, US President Barack Obama, have occupied the city with 10,000 Mexican troops. In short, this is where and what the so-called ‘War on Drugs’ has ‘retreated’ to.

US and Mexican Drug War Czars declare Martial Law in El Paso-Ciudad Juarez metro area

el-paso-juarez.jpg …In my book there are only 2 major international metropolitan areas in the Northern part of North America, those being Montreal and El Paso-Ciudad Juarez. I would add San Diego-Tijuana in there too except for the fact that the two cities are 25 miles apart from each other. Of course, most Anglo US citizens have never thought of El Paso-Ciudad Juarez in that manner as they mainly just drive past the area, usually with some sense of dismay.
