Mexican drug cartels, any drug cartel should be considered terrorists. So, why doesn’t our government treat them as terrorists cells? It is known that al Qaeda has mixed with the cartel.
Louie Gohmert, R-Tyler, said on C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal” April 17, 2013: “We know al Qaeda has camps over with the drug cartels on the other side of the Mexican border. We know that people are now being trained to come in and act like Hispanic when they’re radical Islamists. We know these things are happening and… it’s just insane not to protect ourselves.”
I recently did a reblog on a story about the Mexican Drug Cartel with scouts having crossed our border, carrying guns. We are more aggressive chasing terrorists in the Middle East than at our own border. This is just insane as Rep. Gohmert stated.
If al Qaeda terrorists are infiltrating within drug cartel camps, they are likely training the members in terrorists activity/acts as well. Even if the cartel stood on their own, they are terrorists. They murder, traffic their drugs across our border and involved in crimes. The crime that follows drug trafficking, often violent and the destructive effect of drugs on our young is terror.
Some argue that it isn’t terrorists activity because it isn’t politically motivated. Since when has terror had to be politically motivated? 9/11 was about hatred. I would argue the drug cartel is politically motivated regardless, they would love to see our political system continue to fall apart, it makes their mission easier.
The Mexican Drug Cartel is a terrorist cell and must be treated as such.
I like reporting events that I have researched for my blogs you won’t hear from the mainstream media, usually what the FEDS don’t want us to know. However, I am a commentator as well and very opinionated. Here’s an idea, maybe not yet practical, but something to think about:
2 items to be decided:
1. We the People, have our own convention. Keep out all the currently elected officials. Convention participants have pre-convention meetings to bring possible candidates for president and vice president to the agenda.
2. A list of issues that become OUR platform.
WHAT DO YOU THINK? Why not? At the very least, it’s the beginning of a new voice.
IT’S A PEACEFUL REVOLUTION.
“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
When I was in the first grade we started each day standing next to our desk, facing our flag and reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. It was a tradition I recall that carried up until high school. I don’t know why it ever ended, I don’t recall anyone ever being offended.
Today the argument against reciting The Pledge of Allegiance in public is that it may offend someone. Did you catch that, “may” offend someone.
Who does it offend? If it offends you…..I would like you to reply/comment back, I would really like to know why. I doubt I get many, if any, responses.
How many of our young people today know the words or have recited the Pledge? How many have ever heard it?
School wasn’t the only place it was recited, I remember opening our Cub Scout and Boy Scout meetings with the Pledge of Allegiance. I remember how it made me feel, proud to be an American and pride in the flag and country.
