Jose Diaz-Barajas, 49, was arrested at Rio de Janeiro’s Tom Jobim airport

 

Think..then thrice!

Think..then thrice!

Brazil arrested a suspected Mexican drug trafficker on his way to watch his national soccer team play in the World Cup. He bought a ticket under his name.

Jose Diaz-Barajas, 49, was arrested at Rio de Janeiro’s Tom Jobim airport last night as he boarded a plane to Fortaleza, where Mexico plays Brazil today, Luiz Cravo Dorea, head of international cooperation at the Federal Police, said. The world soccer governing body, FIFA, had informed police that Diaz-Barajas, who was accompanied by his wife and two children, held tickets, Dorea said. FIFA spokeswoman Delia Fischer declined to comment when asked by e-mail about its cooperation with the police.

“Barajas was one of the most sought traffickers in the United States,” Dorea told reporters in Brasilia. “He will remain imprisoned in Rio until his extradition to the U.S. is determined.”
Since taking office in 2012, President Enrique Pena Nieto has succeeded in rounding up leaders of Mexico’s top drug cartels after drug-related violence left more than 90,000 dead or missing since 2006. They include Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, leader of the Sinaloa Cartel, the world’s most-wanted criminal, and Miguel Angel Trevino, the head of the Zetas Cartel.

U.S. and international security agencies often beef up their presence in cities with large sporting events such as boxing and World Cup matches to nab kingpins who attend competitions, said Mike Vigil, a retired former head of international operations for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.

“A lot of them are big sports fanatics,” Vigil said by telephone from Washington. “It’s a great time to apprehend these individuals.”

The Drug Enforcement Agency assisted in the arrest of Diaz-Barajas, said agent Joseph Moses, an agency spokesman.
Diaz-Barajas entered Brazil by land from Paraguay on June 11, according to the federal police. His arrest warrant was issued by Supreme Court Justice Marco Aurelio Mello, the police said in a statement.

Guzman, who gained fame after escaping from a high-security prison, built up the Sinaloa cartel, named after his home state, and is known for beheading enemies or hanging their bodies in public places.

Mexico’s government is also waiting for results of DNA tests that would confirm the death of Juan Jose Esparragoza, known as “El Azul,” the second-most-wanted leader of the Sinaloa cartel at large, according to a Mexican official who requested not to be named because the information is not public.

An Impact of War Very Few Even Consider…

An Impact of War Very Few Even Consider…

The number of people displaced by violent conflict hit the highest level since World War II at the end of 2013, the head of the United Nations refugee agency, António Guterres, said in a report released on Friday, warning that “peace is dangerously in deficit.”

Pushed up dramatically by the war in Syria, the total number of people displaced by violence reached more than 51 million at the end of 2013, according to the agency’s “Global Trends” report for the year. This included 33.3 million people who fled violence but remained in their own country and 16.7 million refugees who fled to neighboring countries, it said.

“We are not facing an increasing trend, we are really facing a quantum leap,” Mr. Guterres told reporters in Geneva, noting that close to 11 million people were newly displaced in 2013. Half the world’s population of displaced people are children, he added, the highest level in a decade.

“There is no humanitarian response able to solve the problems of so many people,” he warned. “It’s becoming more and more difficult to find the capacity and resources to deal with so many people in such tragic circumstances.”

Moreover, the impact of conflicts raging this year in Central African Republic, South Sudan, Ukraine and now Iraq threatens to push levels of displacement even higher by the end of 2014, he said.
“What this demonstrates is that the international community today has very limited capacity to prevent conflicts and to find timely solutions,” Mr. Guterres said, spotlighting the failure of global powers to work effectively together. “We see the Security Council paralyzed in many crucial crises,” he added.

DO NOT BLAME AMERICA OR AMERICANS

DO NOT BLAME AMERICA OR AMERICANS

Is what he is saying, in any way up to him? Is he paying for it? Senator Leahy should be censored.

Is what he is saying, in any way up to him? Is he paying for it? Senator Leahy should be censured.

America’s miserable failure to cope with illegal immigration is claiming another round of victims. Although this unnamed writer will remain unnamed, his condescending peerage of America’s immigration policy has not and will not go unabated or unnoticed. According to this writer he admonishes America for our miserable failure to cope with illegal immigration; furthermore he exhorts, that America is claiming — almost as planned — another round of victims. These are the kind of journalists that left their better side somewhere else.

Let us get rascally with this dupe, shall we? For one huge although unfounded reason America is getting blamed once again for not being the world’s nanny. One should never, ever forget that a nation’s immigration policy or lack thereof is the business of primarily the executive branch with congress filling in for the rough-over’s.

Because America has been the kindest, most civilized nation on earth — we suggest one look at their taxes inasmuch as this nation has billions almost trillions of dollars going out in aide to other nations on a no refund, not to worry about paying it back basis. Or if further proof is needed we implore you to simply walk in to any 7-11 store, gas station convenience store, restaurant or hotel to be further reminded. What will it take for this person to see or acknowledge more than twelve million people who are here illegally.

Thousands of Central American children and mothers who’ve been trekking across Mexico after hearing rumors that Barack Obama had stopped deporting border-crossers.foolmetwice-130x190

Okay then gossip and rumors have been around since the beginning of recorded history. We would like to ask you where someone on the shear risk and travel internationally to what — view the U.S.A. from the other side of the fence? Good grief person, whether or not Obama is giving that impression, is totally irrelevant to your argument. But what is relevant is the notion of this:

How safe, how good is it for the health of a child or in your particular case, both mother and child to travel such distances all based on a rumor. Just to let some whistles get blown here, please check my last month of publication…it all has to do with the incomprehensible claims that one, the House and Senate have been making here in the USA; whilst, the other articles have been about the competence of those who are willing to allow their children to travel alone, or, for those individuals who have simply sent their children with money to the United States with the knowledge that it is wrong and that it is illegal.

Obama, worst thing since Slavery

Obama, worst thing since Slavery

Conservative favorite Dr. Ben Carson fired up the hosts of “The View” with some comments on welfare. Dr. Carson said on the show, “When you rob someone of their incentive to go out there and improve themselves, you are not doing them any favors.”

In this quote from Dr. Carson, I attend to the notion that he is absolutely correct in his assessment. I base my innermost feelings on empirical evidence where too many people receiving welfare or other infirmity entitlements simply do not like falling into any stereotypes that have already spared like a wild fire.

Despite being interrupted, he went on to say that it’s more empowering when we use intellect and resources to give people a way up and a way out.

This also is the number one reform issue that those subject to hand outs by the federal government (taxpayers) will take the time to explain their reasoning. The feeling of honor and integrity of “working out of the jam…” assists better than any entitlement ever will.

Whoopi Goldberg responded, “As a former welfare mother, very few people want to be on welfare. Very few want to walk with their kids and take food stamps. Most people would rather work. Now I don’t feel bad about being a welfare mother because I contribute as an American.”

Clearly a ‘feel good’ about myself ideology maybe even page one of one of Osama’s books. However the system was used and properly at that. I would like to ask her what special accommodations she makes and/or does contributing as an American.

She said the system needs to be fixed so that welfare recipients are allowed to earn an income without losing food stamps.

This by far shows Goldberg’s feeling on entitlements — and for the most part I agree with her about finding some earning potential as a reward to self. Actually President Clinton did an amazing job with this reform effort; his administration was able to decrease welfare spending to between 50 to 64 percent before Barack Obama was elected and managed to change all of everyone’s hard work.

Dr. Carson, a Fox News contributor, joined The Kelly File last night with reaction from that interview. He doubled down on his comments that some people on welfare want government assistance, calling it “inter-generational.”

“After the great progress that we made after the struggles of the Civil Rights Movement, I think perhaps the worst thing that happened is a lot of, some well-meaning and some not so well-meaning folks came along and started patronizing these individuals, and saying, ‘you can’t really do anything and we’ll take care of you.’”

No doubt about it! All of us have spoken with friends on the dole and have heard of the tactics used when advocacy groups of another side look to ‘want to assist’ those lesser-fortunate people of our society.

In some cases, he said it was to assuage guilt and in other cases they generally felt that minorities couldn’t help themselves.

Thank you indeed Dr. Carson for saying to a national audience what so many of us have felt for decades. Moreover, I want to contribute to your point by just simply using data from polls and B. Obama. I believe that Barack Obama has a hidden agenda with the wellbeing of our great nation, the U.S.A.

Without placing specific blame, Dr. Carson said he believes that some aspects of the economy are purposely not being remedied because then there would be no need for certain social programs.

When it is time to crack the whip..!

Impeach the bastardWhen it is time to crack the whip..!

Given the current leadership of our Nation as well as certain other leaders who for their time did a bit more than the current administration, yet let us not kid ourselves, in some of the decision-making or especially the lack thereof, left their scars still very open and bleeding…nah gushing.

During the Vietnam War many of the exact same matters were of great concern; however, just as in every different case we write about here, there have been those in charge who had at least public opinion in support of why several issues in our Nation today are still plagued.

The point that I am trying to make here is that mistakes that are as large as the current situation regarding the treatment, run around, and literally death occurring at the Veterans Administration Hospital’s is nothing new. Quite openly we believe that the blatant, reckless disregard, and outright negligence at the levels as they stand now could not have happened in 6 or maybe even 8 years. So therefore I ask as do so many others: “The appropriated amount of funding received by the V.A. last year alone was like close to $100 billion dollars, where was it spent?”

“We now know that this president or his top advisers have known about these very problems for a very long time and did shamefully little to make sure they were resolved,” Megyn explained, on her program The Kelly File.

“This isn’t about another IG report. We’ve already had three, as it turns out. Three. All ignored. It isn’t about another audit. We’ve already had one of those too. It isn’t about confirming the existence of these problems. They have all been well documented for years. There’s precious little new in the scandal that the administration seems so baffled by this month. What we haven’t had is accountability and follow-through.”

Ah-ah! That is the operative expression for today’s writing. The expression “Ah-ha” normally comes at the precise moment something is learned! Megyn Kelly hits it high and over the fence…”what we haven’t had is accountability and follow-through.”

The major problem with the entire Presidency of Obama is simply that — insofar as he is to51zPiqVuh2L._SL160_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-dp,TopRight,12,-18_SH30_OU01_AA160_ awesome to ever do anything remotely wrong, well a leader is as good as the management that supports him. Obama has never held anyone accountable for anything that they have done.

The IRS commissioner, Secretary of State during the Benghazi massacre, US Attorney General for Fast & Furious, and like it is nothing, the Secretary for Veterans’ Affairs for how our veterans have been treated.

Why the hell doesn’t someone try and make a clean, reliable, and viable name for themselves and bring up some Articles of Impeachment? I’m here to assist you in any way possible.

Educational Overreach..?

Educational Overreach..?
dreamact2 Fox News accused President Obama of a “constitutional violation” by claiming he enacted the DREAM Act in 2012 even though the legislation had not passed Congress. In    fact, Obama has not enacted the DREAM Act. The deferred action program for undocumented youth he announced in 2012 was an exercise in executive discretion and is  only a temporary measure that does not allow recipients to become legal residents or begin a path to citizenship, as the congressional proposed DREAM Act would have  done.

However let us be real and open about this conundrum. Here just as every other program that has been put forth by the U.S. government there has been no planning,  organizing, or time management. What is it about the executive branch and the legislative branches that have the uniformly ugly ideal that anyone can start a program – for  the benefits of many – and yet that is it?

Currently in New York City several advocacy groups have gotten together and started a campaign to assist those with deferred action to make sure and keep open their claims. Ostensibly when one is granted DACA they are  committed to the program for two years. At the end of two years, whose responsibly is it to renew their DACA status? Well it seems that this in and of itself is creating a substantial decrease in the amounts of renewals.

Here is a message that is being posted literally everywhere in the City:

“Don’t have immigration papers? Scared of deportation? Want to get a work permit?” a new flyer plastered around immigrant neighborhoods provocatively asks. The poster — in English, Spanish, Mandarin, Korean, Haitian-Creole and Hindi — is part of a city-wide push to get more people to sign up for a special program called deferred action for childhood arrivals, which grants social security cards and work permits to young immigrants here illegally.

Deferred action is for undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. before they were 16, were born on or after June 16, 1981, have lived here since June 15, 2007 and are either in school, graduated or have a GED.

Now if we may, we all need to look at what was stated in the first paragraph of this writing. Where does the DREAM Act or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals mention anything remotely close to a path to citizenship? Just because some out-going senator or representative happens to mention (erroneously!) that a particular bill waiting to be debated on and passed or denied simply does not mean there is any credence whatsoever to citizenship. This is again another misunderstanding by illegal immigrants hoping, rather than to face the reality of what it is.

These Actions Should not be the Cause of Humility, Embarrassment

mar3_putin

A bra is in order…nothing sexy about those love handles

For the most part I believe that Sean Hannity means well, mind you, I also feel as though he can be a bit impetuous at certain times. Of course lately with a trying-to-be-a-reverse on Mr. Putin, President Obama who is lame when it comes to foreign policy, I believe that Barack Obama is simply waiting for Putin to step-in-it which is about to happen.

I believe that all of this occupation of Crimea the sending of the troops to both the Ukraine and outlying territories is far more a threat that an action delivered on. The brutal notion for me is that I believe that Obama and the Ukraine and Crimea are going to win what it is they want.

According to Hannity, “So we got a community organizer against the former KGB leader who is getting his butt kicked and embarrassed and humiliated on the world stage,” Hannity said. “The Russian media keeps showing a picture of [Obama] in Martha’s Vineyard, riding his little bicycle with his little helmet on. It’s so humiliating.”

Dear Sean Hannity:

Humiliation very much like embarrassment are subjective thoughts or feelings that one may generate; however, it is important to point out that not one person is capable of embarrassing you. And ditto for humiliation – I feel that these two behaviors cannot be forced on anyone by another source. It packs the scenario of only one can embarrass and or humiliate themselves by actions caused which results in the behaviors.

Furthermore, why are you using my airwaves to launch you childish rubbish. When various actions appear on the world stage, it is quite obvious that you will use your recently gained power to rub the rubbish everywhere.

Let us look at what you have written, or who has quoted you on the Fox News Insider. Starting from the third paragraph let’s come to what is so hard for the members of Congress to do…talk to each other and hopefullyObamaPutin_0 come to a compromise. Right then…we do have a community organizer-Junior Senator cum President going up against a real bully type in former KGB leader and whomever is getting their butts kicked will be decided in the middle to late rounds in this match.

You again state, “The Russian media keeps showing a picture of [Obama] in Martha’s Vineyard, riding his little bicycle with his little helmet on. It’s so humiliating.” Okay let us peruse these images. What Obama is doing is setting a great example because in most states helmets are required as is a license. Take a look at the statistical data where the per annum death toll arranged by those riders who do not wear helmets is roughly, 10,000. (Source citation here.)

Still with me? Great! So let us put this entire ridiculous mouth espousal to rest and assign blame on  photojournalists. How would you feel if you were out intentionally on a summer day flabby and bear chested?

The only bit of Russian laughter that I receive is when I see the same person in a wrestling togs whipping some tiny adolescent boy.
