Mexican cartels plague Atlanta

Mexican cartels plague Atlanta

ATLANTA — In a city where Coca Cola, United Parcel Service and Home Depot are the titans of industry, there are new powerful forces on the block: Mexican drug cartels.

Their presence and ruthless tactics are largely unknown to most here. Yet, of the 195 U.S. cities where Mexican drug-trafficking organizations are operating, federal law enforcement officials say Atlanta has emerged as the new gateway to the troubled Southwest border.

Rival drug cartels, the same violent groups warring in Mexico for control of routes to lucrative U.S. markets, have established Atlanta as the principal distribution center for the entire eastern U.S., according to the Justice Department’s National Drug Intelligence Center.

In fiscal year 2008, federal drug authorities seized more drug-related cash in Atlanta — about $70 million — than any other region in the country, Drug Enforcement Administration records show.

Mexican cartels plague Atlanta

And this comes as a surprise to ANYONE?? Actually, Atlanta does surprise me by being the city of choice, there’s a lot of well armed redneck southern boys around Atlanta, you would think that there might actually be a few patriots among them that could, or would take some initiative where a bunch of wetback drug dealers, and their need for removal was concerned!

An added attraction for the cartels, say Nahmias and Rodney Benson, the DEA’s Atlanta chief, is the explosive growth of the Hispanic community.

Nahmias calls northeast suburban Gwinnett County, about 30 miles northeast of Atlanta, the “epicenter” of the region’s drug activity.

It is a certainty that Obama will do nothing to alleviate this situation, but the immediate blame is NOT on his shoulders. We can thank one George W. Bush for the debacle that this nation has become concerning the open borders and out of control ILLEGAL invasion! That is a failure that can be squarely placed on his shoulders.

I see a number of blogs and sites espousing their lamentations regarding Bush over Obama. You likely won’t see that here. Those 2 ignorant douchebags are the very reason that America is in the predicament that it’s in! Bush refused to close the border after 9-11, thus allowing this nation to be totally over-run in the 8 years of his presidency and Obama doesn’t know where the damned border is.

The time is fast approaching America, the time when the average citizen will have no choice but to stand for what’s right or be consumed by ALL the wrong that is taking place in this once great nation…

Barack Obama and the Death of America

Barack Obama and the Death of America

WASHINGTON (AP) - The nation’s unemployment rate bolted to 8.1 percent in February, the highest since late 1983, as cost-cutting employers slashed 651,000 jobs amid a deepening recession. Jobless rate bolts to 8.1 pct., 651,000 jobs lost

- Calling the latest job losses astounding, President Barack Obama said Friday he will not accept a future marked by a recurring cycle of Americans forced out of work due to the economic crisis.
Obama calls latest job losses astounding

NEW YORK (AP) - Wall Street has given up early gains and has turned lower as the severity of U.S. job losses began to register with investors. Stocks turn lower after February jobs data

WASHINGTON - The truisms have been familiar to generations of Americans: As General Motors goes, so goes the nation; Citigroup is too big to fail; General Electric, one of the 12 original companies in the Dow Jones industrial average in 1896, brings good things to life. America’s corporate giants crumbling

WASHINGTON - Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd has moved to allow the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. to temporarily borrow up to $500 billion from the Treasury Department, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday. Report: Bill seeks $500 billion for FDIC fund

The above is just a sampling of the financial and business news from the reports today.

The jobless rates have gone UP, in a large way. Barack Obama, the guy that never really held a JOB, is ‘astounded‘. The stock markets are all but in the tank because of the financial mess this nation is in, and the stock markets are responsible for that situation, in a very large way. The biggest corporations in America are crumbling, Obama and Company are throwing BILLIONS of our TAX dollars at them in an effort to save them, and then the news comes out that it appears that no matter what is done, some of these corporations are done for anyway.

That’s bad news folks, it’s terrible news, but it doesn’t bother me nearly as much as the last little blurb concerning the FDIC.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is a United States government corporation created by the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933. It provides deposit insurance, which guarantees the safety of deposits in member banks, currently up to $250,000 per depositor per bank. FDIC

I don’t mean to be an alarmist, but for some reason, when the FDIC has to borrow money to guarantee MY deposits, I get a bit nervous! What I get from this story is, the Feds are propping up the FDIC in an effort to make this stimulus and all the extended credit that Obama and Company believe will bail out this nation become a reality with an infusion of an additional $500 BILLION.

Seems to me that all we are doing is robbing Peter to pay Paul. I believe what we are seeing is called shuck and jive on the street, and unless you are the gullible *mark* that falls for the 3 card shuffle and the shell game, you know as well as I do, this crap is NOT going to work and all Obama and Company are doing is throwing good money after bad.

And now we are hearing that Bernie Madoff may be about to enter into a plea deal, Prosecutors indicate Madoff plea may be in works, I’ll bet that makes the folks that lost BILLIONS in his ponzi scheme feel a lot better…

Charges dropped vs. suspect in 2000 USS Cole blast

Charges dropped vs. suspect in 2000 USS Cole blast

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Pentagon says the senior military judge overseeing terror trials at Guantanamo Bay has dropped charges against a suspect in the 2000 USS Cole bombing.

The military charges against suspected al-Qaida bomber Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri marked the last active war crimes case at Guantanamo Bay.

The legal move by Susan J. Crawford, the top legal authority for military trials at Guantanamo, brings all cases into compliance with President Barack Obama’s executive order to halt terrorist court proceedings at the U.S. Navy base in Cuba.

Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell said Crawford dismissed the charges against al-Nashiri without prejudice. That means new charges can be brought again later. He will remain in prison for the time being.

“It was her decision, but it reflects the fact that the president has issued an executive order which mandates that the military commissions be halted, pending the outcome of several reviews of our operations down at Guantanamo,” Morrell said Thursday night.

The ruling also gives the White House time to review the legal cases of all 245 terror suspects held there and decide whether they should be prosecuted in the U.S. or released to other nations.

Obama was expected to meet with families of Cole and 9/11 victims at the White House on Friday afternoon to announce the move.

Charges dropped vs. suspect in 2000 USS Cole blast

Welcome to the United States of Obama. He is going to close Gitmo. He is going to FREE the terrorists that have injured or KILLED American citizens. He is going to FREE the sons a bitches responsible for the deaths and serious injury of our military personnel.

He is going to enter into open negotiations with the enemies of this nation, and he’s going to talk this nation into open WARFARE, right here on the shores of the once great U.S. of A.

I hope all of you Dem/Libber bastards are really happy with your *boy*, he’s proving himself to be EVERYTHING he was predicted to be. The terrorists best friend!
