Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat   TY Neal en Nevada  Proceso

The socialist president of Mexico blames conservativism for corruption and rise of criminal organizations.  He did not address his administration ending 2019 with the deadliest toll in history


President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said that in his government there is no protection or agreements with criminal organizations as in the case of the security secretary in the administration of Felipe Calderón, Genaro García Luna.

"It is no longer as they did before, it is not the case as of Mr. García Luna, this is different, that (complicities such as those of the former official arrested in the United States) has to do with conservatism because, with all due respect, they are very corrupt”.

The issue was thus addressed by the president in his morning press conference, when a foreign correspondent asked him why he always spoke badly about his adversaries, but never about the cartels, a word he has avoided in his expressions using “criminal organizations instead."

Once known as "Public Enemy No. 1" dies in free Social Security clinic--
During the years he was on the lam in California, Ríos Galeana lived in the house of a Christian pastor,  who supposedly probably influenced him to become a believer, to such an extent that he recorded a disc with religious themes entitled "Transformed by God."


Alfredo Ríos Galeana, the legendary assailant of the 70s and 80s, died last December at a social security clinic in the capital of Oaxaca from a blood infection called sepsis, federal sources reported.
The so-called "public enemy number one", who escaped three times in prison, died at age 69, after spending the last stage of his imprisonment in the Federal Criminal Court of Miahuatlán de Porfirio Díaz, Oaxaca.

NOTORIETY

Former military, former agent of the Mexican State Police and former commander of the Radiopatrullas Battalion of that entity, the criminal of 1.96 meters tall was imprisoned for the first time in the Lecumberri Penitentiary in 1973, accused of robbery, although he was acquitted of his charges.

Since the late 1970s, when he resigned from his police badge, he began to become a celebrity for the bank robberies he perpetrated in Puebla, Hidalgo, the State of Mexico and the capital of the country.

The Colombian government has published a proposed law that will allow it to resume a controversial program of aerial fumigation of coca crops using glyphosate, a weed-killer thought to cause cancer in people exposed to it regularly and in high doses.

“The resumption of the spraying would increase the capacity of the Colombian state to confront drug trafficking in less time and in a more effective way,” said Colombia’s Ministry of Justice in a statement announcing the decree in late December.

The decree, similar in legal status to an executive order in the U.S., calls for a program of new crop-spraying flights, with national police oversight. The plans are in the final stage of their passage to law, and spraying is expected to begin “in the second half of this year,” said Ricardo Vargas, an expert in crop fumigation and coca at National University of Colombia.

The proposals by the Colombian president, Ivan Duque – after a five year hiatus in coca spraying – have been criticized by local government officials, environmentalists, drug policy experts and rural communities living under the proposed toxic flight paths.

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat   TY GUS  KVIA


NEW YORK, NY — Mexico’s former top security official is “very much looking forward” to fighting charges he took tens of millions of dollars in drug-money bribes to protect Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s notorious Sinaloa cartel, a defense attorney said Tuesday.

Genaro Garcia Luna “adamantly denies that he accepted any bribes” and is not interested in negotiating a plea deal with the U.S. Justice Department, defense attorney Cesar de Castro told reporters.

“He intends to go to trial,” de Castro said, adding Garcia Luna is in “very good spirits” .

De Castro’s remarks followed a hearing in Brooklyn federal court in which U.S. District Judge Brian Cogan urged prosecutors to begin handing over discovery to Garcia Luna’s defense.

A U.S. judge designated the drug corruption trial of former top Mexican security official Genaro Garcia Luna as "complex" on Tuesday, raising expectations for slow-moving proceedings as he set the next court date for April 2.

The arrest of Garcia Luna in Dallas last month sent shockwaves across Mexico, where he spearheaded the country's "War On Drugs" for many years beginning in 2006.

Federal Judge Brian Cogan in New York granted U.S. prosecutors' request to declare the trial "complex," which effectively waives the need to bring a person to trial within 70 days once they have been indicted, as stipulated under the U.S. Speedy Trial Act.

Drogheda, Ireland: Ruthless Irish Gangsters Copying Brutal Mexican Cartels by Dismembering Victims


EXCLUSIVE Keane Mulready-Woods, 17, was beheaded and his body cut up as part of a gang war which has led to comparisons with Mexican drug cartels

Keane Mulready-Woods, 17 from Drogheda, whose remains were found in Dublin

Ruthless Irish gangsters have copied Mexican cartels’ notorious practice of dismembering victims to scare rivals.

The gangs – who make most of their money selling cocaine – carry out the grisly practices to intimidate their opponents.

And things went to another level when Keane Mulready-Woods, 17, was dismembered by a “psychotic serial killer”.

His limbs were cut off and his head was found in the boot of a burning car after he disappeared in Drogheda, Co Louth, two weeks ago.

Mexican cartels are known for their scare tactics of dismembering rivals

It is feared that his death could prompt further horrific reprisals in the gruesome style of El Chapo's Sinaloa cartel which beheaded and dismembered its victims.

A source said: “The Mexicans take it to another level and the Irish have copied.

“Shooting someone isn’t enough now – you’ve got to cut them up and put it on social media.

“But where does it end? Keane will just be the first of many.” The news emerged as it was claimed that a thug from the UK has joined the bitter gang war.

Keane Mulready-Woods was caught up in gang warfare in Ireland
It is alleged they are protecting Irish mob boss Cornelius Price – who has an £85,000 bounty on his head.

The hardened criminal was released from prison last year after serving a three-year sentence for reckless endangerment of a police officer.

A source said: “Price and his gang are at the centre of this feud and they know they’re under serious pressure from the people who killed Keane Mulready-Woods.

“It’s not the first time he has drafted in supporters from the UK because, when he’s under pressure, he surrounds himself with people he can trust. It’s also concerning that people from outside the area could be dragged into this feud.”

Mexican drug trafficker Joaquin Guzman Loera, aka 'El Chapo' Guzman

Irish cops have established a strong presence in Drogheda in a bid to prevent any more outbreaks of violence.

Keane was abducted and taken to a house where he was tortured, killed and dismembered.

Last Monday night, parts of his body were found inside a black sports bag thrown from a car as it travelled through an estate in north Dublin.

His severed head was found in a blazing Volvo hatchback in Drumcondra, Dublin, last Thursday morning.

A 24-year-old man has since been arrested in connection with the teenager’s murder.

The Anonymous Elite Mexican Commando Challenges AMLO


Video translation is as follows:
In 2019 we saw a relentless president smashing corrupt heads and drinking their blood to rejuvenate himself and become stronger in power. Without a doubt it was certainly of great benefit to the country.

But it would also be much better if he decapitated the white collar rats he covers with his cloak and attends to his political party. Because aside from it being a purge it would also seem as revenge against all his adversaries.

I want to ask the entire civilian population not to be frightened with all the violence. And don’t think that in this sexennium the black thread is being discovered.

Mr. Andrés Manuel López Obrador lit the fuse of what has always been an open secret. That officials and authorities threatened by the power of drug trafficking have had to work with them.

At the time, I was assigned to DEA to work in on a task force team targeting gang members who distributed significant amounts of drugs. 

Jack took a couple steps across the hallway and asked me for help since I had expertise on the Logan Heights Gangs. Jack eventually delegated the monitoring and investigation of the enforcement arm of the AFO to me. He mentioned to me that my ultimate target should be Barron. But Barron was in Tijuana and never to be seen again by us until his death in 1997. We did make the case however.

As they filtered through the airport, they were given notice that “Chapo” would be arriving in a white Gran Marquis.
