7 People Killed in Border Shootout With Los Zetas Cartel

Published

on

A recent border shootout in the Mexican city of Nuevo Laredo conducted by Loz Zetas is adding to the growing tension south of the American border.

The Cartel Del Noreste faction of Los Zetas is cranking up attacks against Mexican authorities and civilians as of late. Not too long ago, law enforcement rescued two Pakistani migrants being held captive in a drug house.

During a recent convoy that Mexican military was conducting in Nuevo Laredo in order to fight against the Wuhan virus pandemic, the military forces in question fell prey to an attack by Los Zetas gunmen near Cavazos Lerma Boulevard

The gunmen escaped from the scene, and then proceeded to set up an ambush at the highway overpass for the soldiers. After the smoke cleared from the shootout, the military forces killed seven of the Los Zetas gunmen. Two of those taken out were the bodyguards of a cartel leader and the majority of the gunmen had military-style body armor.

According to report by Breitbart, the military claimed that some of the dead cartel members belonged to Tropa 101 and Flako 112, which was a splinter group of the CDN-Los Zetas.

This group was notorious for committing various acts of violence like armed attacks, murders, and kidnappings.

Based on their behavioral pattern, police have been led to believe that this group of gunmen were members of the Tropa del Infiern0. These men likely served under Martin El Cadete” Rodriguez Barbosa and Jesus Gerardo “El Huevo” Trevino Chavez.

Mexico’s cartel problems are no joke.

Heavily armed, Mexican cartels know that they have a fighting chance against Mexico’s increasingly dysfunctional government.

Because of this, President Donald Trump must take proactive measures on border security and seal off the country from Mexico’s political and social dysfunction.

Airbnb CEO Says Wuhan Virus Will Fundamentally Transform Domestic Travel

Post-pandemic America will not look the same.

Published

on

Brian Chesky, the CEO of Airbnb, said to Reuters on January 14, 2021 that domestic travel patterns will not revert to pre-Wuhan virus pandemic standards.

In a Zoom call with Jonathan Weber, the global technology editor for Reuters, Chesky said that business travel will move towards leisure travel due to the fact that software like Zoom facilitates teleconferencing at unprecedented rates. 

Furthermore, Chesky speculates that people won’t be visiting America’s largest cities as much as before, nor will they stay at crowded hotels. Instead, he believes that “many people will travel by car – some will travel by plane – and they’re going to travel to thousands of smaller communities. And many of these communities are going to be smaller cities and or even rural areas.” 

Additionally, the Airbnb CEO notes that “farm stays are huge right now” and that national parks travel will become a major trend among travelers in the upcoming months. The latter will grow, in Chesky’s view, because most Americans have not visited such parks.

According to an Airbnb survey, 54% of Americans have plans of traveling in 2021 or they’re in the process of planning out their trips for the summer. Chesky asserted that travelers are “yearning for what was taken away from them.” He added, “they’re not yearning to see Times Square. What they are yearning to do is to see their friends and their families they have not seen in a long time.”

Tyler Durden of ZeroHedge raised an interesting point about this change in Americans’ travel patterns:

If Chesky is right about the significant travel shift, the hotel industry could be slated for a massive wave of bankruptcies and or consolidation to a degree never before seen.  

Regardless, Americans are getting tired of the Wuhan virus lockdowns. Millions of Americans have had their freedoms infringed upon thanks to politicians who want to exploit a generalized crisis for their own gain. 

If Republicans were smart, they would be unapologetically campaigning for their states to be reopened. Americans want to go back to their normal lives and engage in activities such as travel, which the political class has deprived them of.
