Driven into their Arms

MEXICO CITY/BERLIN (Own report) – The Mexican government is pushing to rapidly modernize its free trade agreement with the EU and has declared its “close affinity” to Germany, following US President Trump’s threats of massive reprisals by building a wall at the border and imposing punitive tariffs. Because of its extreme dependence on the USA, Mexico can only hold its ground by intensifying its relations with other countries, according to Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray. Mexico’s enticements are greeted with sympathy by German business circles. The majority of German firms active in Mexico had already decided on new investments and is planning to carry these out, despite expected disadvantages from the projected US trade policy. Experts assume that the US administration cannot afford excessive punitive tariffs or other exorbitant escalations. At an appearance last week in Mexico, Siemens CEO Joe Kaeser ostentatiously announced investments worth US $200 million and signed an agreement of intent with Mexico’s Minster of Economics for infrastructure and industrial projects with a possible volume of up to US $36 billion.

US life expectancy is low and is now projected to be on par with Mexico by 2030

The poor levels of life expectancy in the U.S. against other rich nations has been laid bare in a new report, which predicts that minimal gains over the coming years will see the country have similar rates to Mexico by the year 2030.

In general, global life expectancy is on track to increase by the year 2030, according to the study released on Monday, but the U.S. is predicted to continue to lag behind its peers . Continue reading

Corporate America Setting Up “War Rooms” To Prep For Potential Trump Tweets

Since November 8th, several public companies have unsuspectingly fallen into the cross hairs of Trump tweets sending their stocks gyrating violently while adding or erasing millions of dollars worth of market cap in a matter of seconds.  Here is just a small sample: (see source)

As we pointed out back in January, Toyota’s shares, along with the Mexican Peso, tumbled on Trump’s threat to impose a “big border tax” on their Corolla imports as the unprepared and shocked company frantically drafted a response. Continue reading

Drug bust in N.C. shows long reach of Mexico’s cartels, likely corruption of U.S. officials

Rowan County Sheriff’s Office authorities said they began targeting a large scale heroin distribution ring in 2013. The investigation found that a Mexican heroin trafficking ring based in the Charlotte-Matthews area had been supplying heroin to Rowan County for more than 10 years, with some transactions involving quantities of up to $10,000 worth at a time, WXII-12 News reported on Feb. 2.

“In the last few years Judicial Watch has reported extensively on the massive amounts of drugs — especially heroin — that get smuggled into the U.S. by Mexican traffickers who later use street, prison and outlaw motorcycle gangs to distribute them throughout the country,” the Judicial Watch blog said.

“Undoubtedly, these enterprises benefited tremendously from the Obama administration’s open border policies.” Continue reading

Trump to Mexico: Take care of ‘bad hombres’ or US might

As you recall, many times it was warned that poison pills will be left behind for President Trump (see also HERE). Now they are starting to show up and hit hard.

The latest poison pill is a series of leaked calls. The leaked calls shows you that the White House communication lines are likely tapped. This is absolute sabotage and treason. If the communication lines are indeed tapped, Trump will indeed eventually find out. Don’t be surprised if he begins to operate from Trump Tower in New York if that’s the case.

This goes to show you how deeply entrenched the ‘Deep State’ is and how they’re waging war against the nation. In another leaked call, we find out Trump’s conversation with Australia’s PM Malcolm Turnbull didn’t go so well. Apparently PM Turnbull wanted to go low and play cheap activism politics with Trump. That it didn’t go so well is only a small aspect of what’s important to point out.

What’s important to know out of this is that it’s literally Trump versus the world. The world has leaders planted from nation to nation who are all globalists. They want the world to be further integrated and Trump does not. Trump does not fit the plan. Trump does not play their game. According to them, Trump must go. What’s now see being implemented are world leaders stepping in in defiance because it gains headlines in the already-one-sided media, which then amplifies the exaggeration 100-fold and gets the soft minded citizens riled up in defiance as well.

On a side note, these leaked phone calls could also be another hoax, half-truth manipulation or a ploy on the media’s part. They are ruthless enough to not care, so long as the story gets put out first and the facts later when people had it sink into their minds.

For the record, here’s a list of nations that have (or are now) built a wall out of security:

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump warned in a phone call with his Mexican counterpart that he was ready to send U.S. troops to stop “bad hombres down there” unless the Mexican military does more to control them, according to an excerpt of a transcript of the conversation obtained by The Associated Press.

The excerpt of the call did not detail who exactly Trump considered “bad hombres,” nor did it make clear the tone and context of the remark, made in a Friday morning phone call between the leaders. It also did not contain Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto’s response. Mexico denies that Trump’s remarks were threatening. Continue reading

Karl Marx, the Racist

(AP Photo, File)

 

Every so often, there seems to be a renewed interest in Marx’s ideas here in the West. In a recent example, protesters could be seen displaying communist hammer-and-sickle flags at demonstrations and marches opposing newly-elected President Donald Trump’s victory and inauguration.

But some of Marx’s viewpoints may not have been all that progressive or in keeping with modern values on tolerance. In some of his writings, the architect of communism has expressed overtly racist ideologies, even going so far as using the “n-word” and slandering the Jewish faith. Continue reading

Report: Juarez Cartel Used Shell Companies to Finance Mexican President’s Election

AFP

 

An in-depth investigation has revealed that through the use of shell companies, members of the Juarez Cartel financed the political campaign of Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto. The cartel members appear to have also used government programs to launder money and profit form their networks of contacts.

The bombshell revelation was made this week by the independent news outlet Aristegui Noticias who claim that top officials of the Juarez Cartel financed thousands of cash cards that were handed out by Mexico’s Revolutionary Institutional Party (PRI) during the 2012 political campaign that resulted in the victory of Enrique Pena Nieto. According to the Mexican journalists, the cash cards were provided by a company called Monex. They were reported to be financed through a series of shell corporations by key players with the Juarez Cartel. Continue reading

HE’S FIRED! Trump administration tells Border Patrol chief to pack his bags one day after the president ordered Homeland Security to build his wall

Mark Morgan, chief of the US Border Patrol, is on his way out after the Trump administration told him to step aside

 

  • U.S. Border Patrol chief Mark Morgan is out, just a few months after taking over the agency as an Obama White House appointee
  • He clashed with the rank-and-file officers’ union, which saw him as an outsider appointed for political purposes
  • Morgan told employees on Wednesday that the Trump administration asked him to step down
  • President Trump gave the order hours later to build a wall on America’s southern border, and said he would hire an additional 5,000 border patrol officers

The Department of Homeland Security has asked U.S. Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan, a former longtime Federal Bureau of Investigation agent, to step down from his post. Continue reading

A Preview Of Trump’s Seven Imminent Executive Orders

 

Having already signed a (mostly symbolic) executive order on Obamacare on Friday night, urging US agencies to “waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay the implementation” of provisions deemed to impose fiscal burdens on states, companies or individuals, Trump is preparing to unload a volley of many more executive orders. Courtesy of Axios, which quotes “one of the best-wired Republican lobbyists in town”, here is a preview of the initial round of Trump executive actions, some of which may hit as soon as Sunday afternoon:

  • Look for a possible hiring freeze at executive branch
  • 5-year lobbying ban on transition and administration officials
  • Mexico City policy, which prevents foreign NGOs from getting U.S. family planning money if they provide abortions with non-U.S. funds. (It’s already illegal to use U.S dollars on abortions.)
  • Task the Defense Secretary and joint chiefs to come up with plan to eviscerate ISIS
  • Report on readiness, and something cyber security related
  • Border/immigration: Something on sanctuary cities, expand E-Verify, an extreme vetting proposal
  • Trade: Withdraw from TPP and a thorough review of NAFTA

Mexico’s perspective on Donald Trump has changed now that he is actually president

Well, it’s finally come to pass.  Donald Trump is President of the United States, having been installed in the traditional inauguration ceremony on Jan. 20, in Washington, D.C.

Of course, the campaign and election of Donald Trump was fraught with controversy.  After all, the candidate was a real outsider who shook up the establishment of his own Republican party.

Bernie Sanders, a Democratic party senator and candidate in the Democratic primary, summed it up this way: “Trump took on the Republican establishment, he took on the Democratic establishment, took on the media establishment, and he ended up winning the election to become President of the United States. And that is an extraordinary accomplishment. And it talks about perseverance, it talks about very strong political instincts, it talks about a way to connect with people.”

Now Trump is president, and the real test begins as a man who has never held public office before starts at the top. Continue reading

IMF Boosts Growth Forecast for US, Cites Trump Impact

Please see the source for the video.

 

WASHINGTON (AP) — The International Monetary Fund on Monday raised its forecast for the U.S. economy over the next two years, saying President-elect Donald Trump’s policies should boost economic growth, particularly in 2018. But officials warned that if Trump’s protectionist trade proposals set off a trade war, that could be “quite destructive” for the global economy.

The IMF also increased 2017 growth projections for a number of other countries including China, Germany, Japan and Britain, but warned that the global economy faced a number of downside risks from rising protectionism to a jump in interest rates. Continue reading

Globalist leaders ensure North American integration mechanisms remain in place

Damage control, hibernation and infiltration with the aim of outlasting, influencing and steering… This is exactly what Trump’s opposition is doing. They are entrenching themselves like they did with Ronald Reagan and biding their time, while still being able to complete a few objectives here and there, until he is out of office.

There are two America’s in this case: Globalist and nationalists. George W. Bush, for example was a globalist, as he pushed for a North American Union. Barack Obama on the other hand, for example, pushed TTIP to harmonize business between the EU and America. Donald Trump is a nationalist who wants to bring America back to a sovereign nation status.

When you look at the overall picture, you see that there really is no difference between Republican and Democrat parties. They’re both the same under different names. As was Soviet Russia, and even Russia today. No matter which candidate wins, the KGB gets one of their men in the Kremlin. Donald Trump is the true outsider (or at least he ran under that banner), which is even why his own Republican party tried so feverishly to stop him.

What will be the fate of NAFTA?

As Donald Trump prepares to become U.S. president on Jan. 20, the future of NAFTA is in doubt. He has promised to either renegotiate or withdraw from the trade agreement. Despite the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, there are still many different existing North American integration mechanisms that remain in place. Over the last year, the globalists have quietly laid the foundation to ensure their continental agenda continues. They are positioning themselves so they can try to better influence the new Trump administration in advancing deeper economic, political and security integration in North America. Continue reading

Overwhelmed Border Patrol Agents Stuck Serving Burritos to Illegal Immigrants

Agents spending great amount of time taking care of kids, families

Border agents have expressed shock at the menial tasks they’ve been required to perform following a massive flow of illegal immigrant children across the U.S. southern border, according to Morgan, who warned that the force is being strained as a result of this influx.

During one recent trip to a border patrol outpost, “the supervisor in charge said, ‘Chief, we’re going to do whatever this country asks us to do, but I never thought in my 20 years that I would be, as part of procurement, ordering baby powder and baby wipes,’” Morgan recalled during Wednesday testimony before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.

DHS may leave known smuggling route into U.S. unprotected

Agent told ‘by end of month we’re not covering it anymore’

An active smuggling route at the U.S. southern border with Mexico will be largely abandoned by the government at the end of this month, an agent with U.S. Border Patrol has informed WND.

The so-called “S2 route” runs along a two-lane county road through a remote area. More than 900 illegal immigrants have been apprehended on the route over the past year, said the agent, who works out of the USBP’s El Centro sector but asked not to be identified.

“For basically the last year we’ve been out there covering that route. Now we were told by the end of this month we’re not going to cover it anymore,” said the agent, who said he has personally patrolled the route in the past. “Nobody is going to be on this road come Oct. 1. Continue reading
