As drug violence escalates, Americans in Mexico warned

WASHINGTON (AP) — Mexican drug cartels are shipping more than massive quantities of drugs north of the border. Increasingly, they’re also exporting bloody mayhem.

Seeking to stem the growing influence of the Sinaloa cartel within the United States, federal agents arrested more than 50 suspects in raids Tuesday night and Wednesday morning at different ends of the country. The raids capped a 21-month operation by the Drug Enforcement Administration that rounded up 755 suspects and seized more than $59 million in criminal proceeds.

“These cartels will be destroyed,” Attorney General Eric Holder said Wednesday at a press conference announcing the arrests.

The overnight roundup by DEA and state and local police included arrests in California, Minnesota and the Maryland suburbs of Washington.

Holder called the cartels a threat to national security, adding, “They are lucrative, they are violent, and they are operated with stunning planning and precision.”

As drug violence escalates, Americans in Mexico warned

I applaud these officers for their time and efforts. Seriously, I do. They took some scumbags off of the street, some 755 suspects and they seized more than $59 million in criminal proceeds. Folks, this isn’t even a drop in the bucket.

The new AG, Eric Holder, is strutting like a proud peacock too, you would almost think his guys were the ones that put all of this together. According to the story, this investigation has been an ongoing effort for the last 21 months. If my math is correct, Holder has been AG for about a month, that makes him some 20 odd months OUT of the equation. But he’s really trying to make himself look relevant in this operation, like HE personally accomplished this.

The attorney general also suggested that re-instituting a U.S. ban on the sale of assault weapons would help reduce the bloodshed in Mexico, where last year 6,000 people were killed in drug-related violence.

I told my readers, several weeks ago, Eric Holder was being brought in to play the ‘heavy‘ for the Obama administration in their efforts to take as many guns out of the hands of honest Americans as possible. Obama will be able to execute HIS plans to disarm this nation and then smile as he says, ‘But I didn’t do it America, AG Holder did, and he did it to protect you and me and this nation.’, and I am telling ALL of you, right here and now, IT WILL HAPPEN!

I posted here DO NOT Confirm Eric Holder and here Senate confirms Holder as first black AG concerning Holder and his desire to become the most aggressive and successful anti-gun person this nation has ever known. Holder is using the violence in Mexico as an excuse to reinstate the *assault weapons ban*, and it’s a very lame attempt. AK-47′s are his primary target in this recent effort. Oh sure, he includes other guns in his tirades but this one is directed at AK’s it appears.

U.S. officials have a responsibility to make sure Mexican police “are not fighting substantial numbers of weapons, or fighting against AK-47s or other similar kinds of weapons that have been flowing to Mexico,” Holder said.

What Holder doesn’t realize it appears is this, the AK’s that are on our streets and on the streets of Mexico will not be affected by a renewal of the *assault weapons ban*. The AG can institute all the *bans* he wants, these bans will not lessen the number of military type weapons on our streets by so much as 1 rifle!

Eric Holder is the most STUPID individual I have ever seen. The AK’s that Mexican army troops and police are facing didn’t come from the USA, they are pouring in from overseas arms dealers, from black market dealers in Europe, Central and South America and other locations. The AK is manufactured in China, N. Korea, Russia and several former Soviet satellite - Eastern Bloc countries, and can be bought, in LARGE numbers, very cheaply, through DIRECT sources. And in a FULL AUTO configuration.

Get ready America, if the Obama administration, and their new *yard dog*, Eric Holder have their way, WE will be unarmed using the premise that Americans are supplying the guns to drug dealers and once that happens there will be an explosion of violence in this nation the likes of which we have never seen.

And there won’t be one damned thing that We, The People can do other than watch. If we let Holder disarm us that is…

    Thanks Fred for keeping updated on the undeclared border war. No thanks to the MSM for its continued silence!

    another demonstration of the Blame America First Crowd in office. As you pointed out Fred there are many other sources for these guns. The other sources are easier and cheaper then buying in America. Hell, you can almost mail order anything you want from some of those nations.

    Keep them focused on point Fred. The battle will be harder then they think.

    I bet asshold Holder doesn’t consider these drug runners half as dangerous as one Elian Gonzales….you know that guy was a hard core gangster…and it took at least a 3 dozen ATF Thugs to bring him to justice…..

    Anybody besides me, smell a whiff of Revolution in the air, and not that far away?

    I should add, anybody giving up their guns without a fight, like the Brits and Aussies, is a gawddam fool.

    I always give mine up bullets 1st… I’m funny like that…

    Expect the violence to continue until there is a full-scale war on the border. What will Stinky do then?

  7. comment number 7 by: ChicagoRay

    Banning them here won;t take em out of the hands of the spi* criminals down there who are getting their weaponry arsenals from other places than across the border since they can afford to fly them in from anywhere they wish.

    as you say Fred a BS lame attempt to piggyback a crisis to take away freedoms.

    My question is where are all the ACLU and other liber bit***s who complained Bush was the freedom thief, crying about wiretaps and all that other spit…dam* wussies/

    We all know what is going on here, this is called “waveriding” the media creates a wave of interest and then the politicians ride that wave to enact unconstitutional laws. We’ve all seen it before. This time however we know what is coming and will (I hope) create our own wave of nastygrams to congress letting them know in NO UNCERTAIN TERMS that they will be unemployed unless they do the right thing.

  9. comment number 9 by: Dems trying to get around The Second Amendment | The BoBo Files

    [...] As drug violence escalates, Americans in Mexico warned - or as Fred puts it - AG Eric Holder uses LIES in effort to reinstate automatic weapons ban. [...]

    I will make Mr. Holder the same offer I have been making for years.
    When you can prove to me, beyond a shadow of a doubt, how taking guns away from law-abiding citizens will keep guns out of the hands of criminals, I’ll turn mine in.
    Until that day, you can kiss my ass.

    Recap: Acorn getting their 4 BILLION PAY OFF.
    Welfare folks will get an increase in their monthly salary for NOT PAYING FOR ANYTHING INCLUDING TAXES.
    Welfare folks keeping their guns so they can protect themselves while selling and getting drugs.

    Lets ask the FBI, or Cia, or special unit of the military for supply the initial very large amount of guns and amo to the Zeta’s. I’m starting to think they (we) did this on purpose.
    There must be a U.S. plan by “homeland security” we’ve not found out about YET!!!!!!
