News From Mexico

1 month, 3 weeks ago

From several of you, it isn’t good enough that they have to send us their poor – whom they cannot care for because of corruption – and their gangs.  Mexico is saber rattling over guns.

MEXICO CITY (AP) — The Mexican government sued United States gun manufacturers and distributors Wednesday in U.S. federal court, arguing that their negligent and illegal commercial practices have unleashed tremendous bloodshed in Mexico.

The unusual lawsuit was filed in U.S. federal court in Boston. Among those being sued are some of the biggest names in guns, including: Smith & Wesson Brands, Inc.; Barrett Firearms Manufacturing, Inc.; Beretta U.S.A. Corp.; Colt’s Manufacturing Company LLC, and Glock Inc. Another defendant is Interstate Arms, a Boston-area wholesaler that sells guns from all but one of the named manufacturers to dealers around the U.S …

The Mexican government argues that the companies know that their practices contribute to the trafficking of guns to Mexico and facilitate it. Mexico wants compensation for the havoc the guns have wrought in its country.

The Mexican government “brings this action to put an end to the massive damage that the Defendants cause by actively facilitating the unlawful trafficking of their guns to drug cartels and other criminals in Mexico,” the lawsuit said.

It’s not that the police are owned by the cartels.  It’s guns.  Sure thing.

But it may be more than saber rattling if the current administration or some pagan, collectivist judge gets her way.

This sort of thing is bound to increase as time goes by.

    Fast and Furious?
    It’s not our fault that MEX is a failed narcostate.
    One party rule for decades is what ruined it.

    So when will Mexico sue the BATFE over Project Gunrunner and Operation Fast & Furious — wherein BATFE agents knowingly allowed and facilitated the trafficking of thousands of straw-purchased guns to Mexican cartels?

    Also, how much of the cartel violence is being committed with semi-auto rifles allowed to “walk” under F&F vs. how much is committed with full-auto AK variants from China and Soviet bloc countries by way of Venezuelan and Colombian armies?

    That second question is important because last I heard, the thugs don’t use U.S.-sourced semi-autos when they have as many full-autos as they could possibly want “liberated” from South American military armories.

    As for the first question, I won’t hold my breath….

    Mexico is now refusing to accept back the illegals that have crossed into the US through her. (even Mexican citizens.)

    My vote is that the suit is filed as quid pro quo for something done by the regime here that benefits (or will benefit) the Jefe’s down in Meh-heeko.
    Another distraction & PITA that the companies will have to deal with, and another convenient distractor for the news cycle, like Cuomo (while NY implements “papers please.”) Just examples, but the current regime is so ‘ate-up” that any & all distractions are viable in the current news cycle digestive tract. Another 5 seconds for #OrangeGirlBad to circle back on.

    Zero doubt in my mind the impetus behind this suite is prompting from the Global Oligarchy and the corrupted US government as an agent of it. Zero doubt. Probably funded by the Clinton Crime Family’s “charity.”

    ‘Here’s the plan; you hate people that aren’t enslaved to us, we hate people that aren’t enslaved to us. So, you sue us to help us rid the world of freemen so we can usurp the throne of Holy Almighty God.’

    That’s what they said. Not that exactly, but that’s what they said.

    FYI, Meh-hee-co has awarded a large weapons contract to Sig Sauer of New Hampshire. If Sig fulfills that contract then perhaps you should take that in to consideration the next time you need to buy a firearm.
    Perhaps you should let Sig know of that decision.
    Bad things happen because good people sit on their ass with their mouth shut.

    Cool, Then we can sue for trillions in wrongful death fentanyl OD’s? Just for starters? Since they don’t have that much money. We can just take it back in land to put invasion/refugees on?
    The first 100 miles south of the US border should do for starters.

    The border becomes a ….Amusment Park.

    Wonder if anybody is workin it now

    Neighbor has a problem.
    President has to solve a foreign relations problem. Height of his power, can do all sorts of things.
    Still not enough, might need a treaty. 67 senators, no need to involve any state governments to amend the constitution.
    Not that we’re really paying attention to that anymore. (Did you pay the rent?)

    @John: Probably not. It is a fundamental of jurisprudence that later law supercedes earlier law. So, the baseline Constitution grants power to make treaties, but a later proviso says “shall not be infringed”.

    Inching ever closer to the first gunshot…

    If Mexico had a government who was not on the take from the narcotraffickers (I said “if”), they’d have a real case against the narcotraffickers on the American side. AND their customers. If they could actually drag them into court.

    Gillbeast: “It’s not our fault that MEX is a failed narcostate.
    One party rule for decades is what ruined it.”

    One party rule for decades is responsible for much of the ruin, or maybe most of the ruin. I’m no expert on Mexico. As for “not our fault”, if by “our” the “we” you’re referring to are people who have not been snorting cocaine, then that includes me and probably you, and you and I agree. However… I recommend reading Charles Bowden’s “Down By The River: Drugs, Money, Murder and Family”. It was published in 2004 and the sheer volume of US dollars that he described flowing from our cocaine users into Mexico was already staggering then. Has it ever slowed down?
    None of what I say is meant to argue with anyone’s points above regarding gunwalking, fentanyl, and the fucking joke our border has been for decades.
    Mexico was already a nest of corruption before cocaine became the drug of choice for so many Americans.
    IMO American cokeheads have a hell of a lot to answer for, regarding the utter shithole Mexico has become, financed by illicit US dollars. Read Bowden, and you’ll probably conclude this side of the border is also no less a shithole of corruption.

    Decriminalize, not legalize, all drugs in America and the Mexican narco-state will fail permanently and the “cartels” will dry up and blow away.

  18. On August 9, 2021 at 1:24 pm, MTHead said:

    Bill, I have to respectfully disagree. The narco-state of Mexico is about the manufacture and trade routes to get the drugs to America.
    As the de-criminalizing of them in Oregon has proved. The next thing was the de-criminalizing of crime in general. As drugs and crime go hand in hand no matter how cheap and available they are.
    The reasons for drugs being illegal are as valid today as the day they were wrote. No matter what the latest version of communism is doing with them. Drugs and society don’t work.
    And the narco-state of Mexico today is really no different than it was a 100 years ago. Or even a 1,000 years ago for that matter. Only the narrative has changed.
    It’s the natural state of man, without god.

  19. On August 9, 2021 at 3:25 pm, Roger J said:

    The Mexicans know they are in the best position they have been in a century (at least). There never has been a President of the United Mexican States as weak and stupid as Joe Potatohead Biden. If the Mexicans ever elected such a man, and there as here, he couldn’t legitimately win an election, he wouldn’t last 10 minutes in the Presidential Palace in Mexico City.
