Where is Yaqui???

Chivis Martinez

We have received comments asking about BB contributor Yaqui.  I have asked Yaqui for permission to give BB followers a little update.

The truth is, Yaqui, her husband and their gaggle of animals were caught in the throes of the largest fire in California history.

High in the mountains of the Northern California, the so called “Ranch Fire” and “River Fire” united, becoming the Mendocino Complex Fire, which cut across a massive area leaving     hundreds of thousands acres scorched and destroyed in its path.

As of Saturday, California's Mendocino Complex Fire, the largest wildfire recorded in state history at 325,226 acres. It was 67 percent contained Saturday.

Yaqui and her husband, who I refer to as “Superman”, prepared and awaited each day, unsure if they were having to evacuate.  I encouraged her to “go”.  My son fights these massive fires in three states, so I have more knowledge than most people and I was fearful.  My son was fighting the Ferguson Fire at the time, another huge fire, that one in  in Yosemite.  The third big one is the Carr fire.  The Carr fire was the most unpredictable.  Firefighters witness fire behavior  unlike anything experience before.  Such as the “fire tornado” created by the fires falling on itself, whipping winds into a frenzy.

San Diego: Esteban Loiaza pleads guilty

Esteban Loaiza pleads guilty in federal court

The disgraced baseball player, who was arrested earlier this year on drug trafficking charges, pleaded guilty in federal court, in downtown San Diego.  He has been free on bail since May, when he posted the 150,000 bond, using a property owned by his ex girlfriend in Texas. 

Loaiza has been in custody since February when he was pulled over in a Mercedes-Benz 2010 SUV with a trap compartment, task force officers were granted a search warrant for a townhome in his name, where 20 kilos of cocaine where found in another car, in the garage.  The home was nearly empty, a safehouse, rented by Loiaza earlier in the month.

Translated by El Profe for Borderland Beat from Sin Embargo 


Kilometer 13 and half was a construction project launched during the Government of Felipe Calderón that connects the port of Veracruz, the most important in Mexico, to the old Federal highway to Xalapa and the highway to Cardel. Throughout its route, from TAMSA to the entrance area to the port, there are companies, gaps, trailer yards and countless sand dunes, ready to hide almost anything.
There could even be clandestine graves dating from Fidel Herrera Beltrán's government, when the Zetas ruled the region after gaining control of the area through seperating from the Gulf Cartel, estimate the Solecito Collective, in search of the disappeared.
That area, announced Lucia de los Angeles Diaz Genao, founder of the group, is in their sights for a search of clandestine graves. The area also borders Colinas de Santa Fe, the clandestine grave from which more human remains have been exhumed: at the moment there are at least 265 skulls.

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat -from Arizona Star

A federal appeals court this morning ruled the mother of a teen shot by a Border Patrol agent through the fence has a legal right to sue him and the federal government in U.S. courts for damages.

In a 2-1 opinion, the majority of the panel for the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said the fact that Jose Antonio Elena Rodriguez was shot and died in Mexico does not overcome the fact that the action started in this country with the bullets fired by Lonnie Swartz.

"We have a compelling interest in regulating our own government agents' conduct on our own soil,'' wrote Judge Andrew Kleinfeld for himself and Edward Korman.

El Mayo is behind the division of CJNG

Chivis Martinez for Borderland Beat  from Union Jalisco Thank you BB follower

An intelligence report by the Federal Government revealed that the two heads of the Sinaloa Cartel, Ismael 'El Mayo' Zambada and Rafael Caro Quintero, are responsible for the division of the Cartel Jalisco new Generation(CJNG) .

The information contained in the classified document, which was published in 'El Universal', mentioned that the two capos planned to financially support the mobility and operations of the leaders of the new groups that were created that detract from Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes 'El Mencho' .

Apparently the plan devised by both 'El Mayo' and Caro Quintero is paying off, as the authorities say that in the Guadalajara Metropolitan Area (ZMG), the birthplace of the CJNG, there are sixteen cells that struggle to control the sale of drugs in the nine municipalities that make up the urban area of ​​the capital of Jalisco.
