  • I’m so fascinated by Mexican cartels and the older generation of drug lords who came up in the 80’s and 90’s. Miguel Angel Felix Gallardo, Rafael Caro Quintero, Amado Cuerillo Fuentes, the AFO, El Chapo, etc. It really is like they’ve elevated to a sort of cult icon level.

  • I saw Chinese struggling like coming to USA and their culture different though than the one coming on Ellis Island, and badly thrive for Harvard to study and always wants "USA TOP jobs," the top one, and I see that their part/contribution in banks or some top job are very brutal and militarily tactics and civilians have never changed their love for China excuses like"we don' t accept things because culture," it is a dust in the eye for the one blinded in special for survival coming as a immigrant and barely make it to the Island rigorous vision checking. USA can't accept such thing no matter the interest, "top jobs must be American's not Chinese". I don't care how good you are, European including Armenia and Turkey and Russia, Romania and so on build USA not China and still I agree that USA employee citizen or welcome future citizen if you have relatives from other parts that confuse you in decisions and tradition , I take that in consideration in hiring.

  • sorry but to me this interview was a mess they went from one subject to another without finishing what they started, then he is trowing out names without giving background of who the person is, if i wasn't familiar with the names that he mention i wouldn't had a clue of who was he talking about or what organazation he was talking about the subject is good but i think they need explain a little better so people who are not from Mexico have no clue of what cartels are can understand more is just my opinion.

  • You dont have to worry about Cartel corruption. You have the biggest Corruption in Washington. You have just seen the American people treated with total disdain. People turning up at voting booths and told go away your vote has already been counted. This is outrageous the Demorcrats have abused Americans freedoms and are no better than a Chinese dictatorship. Do not stand for this they are now threatning American citizens with job bans and will destroy your career if you speak out. Welcome to Russia. American citizens DONT SHUT UP as the Demorcrats demand. They dont want any criticism off there Lying cheating corruption to steal the American democracy. I,m not pushing for Trump i want true and fair elections. The people who gave the Demorcrats the control of the Senate have just killed any chance of an investigation into future and fair elections. What arrogance these politicians have to demand they run the Greatest country with there socialist ideas. While there getting financially richer every year All jobs went to China the average working people lost there jobs. Trump bought the jobs back and were nt the Demorcrats outraged. Its obvious China had rewarded people in high places to destroy the American economy and those individuals got rich. How can Pelosi say she represents the people when she lives in a $15 million dollar house. She has no idea and has become very rich while in the senate. Honest decent Americans DO NOT ACCEPT RULE BY CORRUPT LYING PEOPLE THEY WILL DESTROY YOUR LIVES.

As an adult last trip in 1994 was last. I felt fear!!! Yet loved the people and the history. It was like home away from home. Last trip was not even real. Fear again. The people, family, history ( wounderful)!! I to this day miss that feeling. Now our country is becoming as bad and close to worse. 68 years young! Thank you for your Great talent, Love and Careing! Loyal fallowed for ever!! Thank you?!!

Yes there is true strife in other countries around the world but the US doesn't even come close to having strife and issues compared to other countries! This country is goin through these rough times because of spoiled and decadent people that create issues because they are brainwashed and easily controlled. Thats the short and sweet!!

  • To educate Ed, in case he isn't intentionally being disingenuous about his 'defund the police' remarks, it does NOT mean to abolish or eradicate the police entirely. It refers to the fact that the overwhelming majority of city funds is taken up by the police, on top of all the regressive taxes levied primarily on the struggling poor via tickets, fines, etc. There's also the surplus military gear given to police. They're asking for a diversion of some of those funds to social assistance programs as a means to reduce crime, instead of treating every issue as a war zone combat situation. It refers to being totally innocent, respectful and compliant and still fearing for your life in the face of hateful racist cops that have all power the power to take away your freedom and or life with no means to right the situation.

  • That narcos show was sooooo goddamn stupid! People actually watch that shit and believe it. It perpetuates the nonsensical notion that governments/FBI/CIA were trying to take down this force known as Pablo Escobar. I'm trying really hard not to be condescending, but if you believe that.... there isn't even a word that exists for that degree of naivety. Give me a break.... technologies from 80 years ago could take down Escobar like a flee... and besides that wasn't even the biggest cartel at the time either. There were at least 3 others bigger than Escobars.

    William LowryWilliam Lowry13 kun oldin
  • The Cartels, the police and the government all work together.. The cartels are CIA creations that exist to prevent competition in the manufacturing/growing drug trade. It pisses me off that this is still news to people, this is declassified, it's common sense, it's a fact.In Mexico the people had enough with the cartels terrorizing them and their families so the people joined together and started fighting back and were kicking the shit out of the cartels, so the military/police came to the cartels aid against the people. People actually still believe that drugs are illegal because of safety reasons, as if the government/powers that be give a crap about the safety of their sheep. Drugs are illegal because it's a multi trillion dollar industry and the governments/CIA/powers that be, don't want competition (Besides the illegal drug trade increases violent crime 1000 + % and I'm not exaggerating). Cartels spread fear to a degree that someone would have to be crazy to manufacture/grow their own drugs in competition with the state. The illegality of dealing drugs is a bunch of bullshit... if your dealing drugs from a manufacture that isn't in bed with the state, you will likely be caged. If your dealing drugs manufactured by the team mentioned above, you can still be caged, because they don't give a shit about the people and it's feeding another industry... the prison industrial complex. Also by cartelizing/monopolizing the drug trade they can set the price astronomically higher than a competitive market. And guess what, in every prison, one can get whatever drug they want at 3 x the going rate. Guess who brings the drugs in? The wardens/guards, if not by their own admission it's under orders from higher ups.

    • Imagine if indeed governments wanted to eliminate the cartels, do you realize how insanely easy that could be done? The cartels could be eliminated over night with 80 year old technology let alone classified technologies with trillions of dollars pumped into it. Many people are niave, they somehow believe that the technology that they're aware of is the pinnacle of modern technology. We, as in the people get the shit when the state's moved on to bigger and better things. Like Tor for instance, that's ancient CIA technology and many people actually think that they're protected when they use it, but I digress.

Everyone is searching for Peace, Comfort, Trust, and just Normality. Look at how broken the nation is. If it's not divided over political parties, it's race, or something else. Face it, Just seek the Lord and you will be saved. Admit it or not that is what we're seeing.
