Grenade explosion injures 16 at Mexican bar

PUERTO VALLARTA, Mexico (AP) - Mexican authorities say at least 16 people have been injured by a grenade that exploded at a bar in the resort city of Puerto Vallarta.

Jalisco state prosecutors say five of the injured have been detained as part of the investigation. Four of those detained each lost a leg in the explosion before dawn Thursday.

Prosecutors say they are investigating whether one of the injured was carrying the grenade when it exploded.

Jalisco state has seen a wave of drug violence in recent months and the bloodshed has intensified since drug kingpin Ignacio “Nacho” Coronel was killed by soldiers earlier this month. Coronel, whose base was in Jalisco, was the No. 3 of the Sinaloa drug cartel.

There’s hardly a day that goes by that we don’t see another story of horrific violence in Mexico.

Headless bodies, with the heads found nearby. Shootouts between the cartels and the police. Shootouts between the cartels, with innocent victims caught in the crossfire. Birthday parties ravaged by machine-gun fire because someone at the party happens to be a rival cartel member, but hey, they kill everyone AT the party just to be safe.

Federales and police implicated as gang members. Mexico frees ex-state police director in drug case. And you know, maybe he’s not guilty, but what if he is? And what if cartel money bought off the judge? Or death threats by the cartels influenced the judge?

And these are just the things that we know about. Yet our borders are still wide open.

I think most any REAL Conservative has seen the light regarding border security and how to bring it about. I say REAL Conservative simply because there are still a few that are FAUX conservatives, and they cling deeply to their not so distant past as flaming libbers.

Truth be known, they still are flaming libbers but they find a more sympathetic audience in the trusting and gullible Conservatives that are willing to accept them at their word while overlooking the deeper intricacies of the FAUX conservative writings.

America is only one bright idea away from falling into this very same 3rd world dung heap mentality. There are those in America that have bleeding hearts for the Mexicans, they see not one thing wrong with the invasion we are suffering, or the financial strain this infestation brings on the rest of America.

Those sympathetic bleeding hearts castigate men and women that speak up and DEMAND that our sovereign borders be secured and this nation protected in ANY manner necessary.

As I said, they still cling to their libber turned RINO mindset. And then we see this;

Car bomb explodes in Mexico where 72 bodies found

SAN FERNANDO, Mexico (AP) - Two cars exploded early Friday, in front of the offices of a major Mexican television station and a transit police station, in a northern state where officials are investigating the massacre of 72 Central and South American migrants.

There were no injuries in either explosion, though both caused some damage to buildings and knocked out the signal of the Televisa network for several hours in Ciudad Victoria, the capital of the drug gang-plagued state of Tamaulipas. The explosion outside Televisa was felt for several blocks.

Soldiers were blocking access to the building, Televisa said.

The network described the explosion as a car bomb, but an official with the state attorney general’s office couldn’t confirm the type of explosions, just that two cars caught fire and blew up. The official was not authorized to speak publicly about the incidents.

If confirmed, it would mean a total of four car bombs in Mexico this year - a new and frightening tactic in the country’s escalating drug war.
