The highway where the attack took place is deemed high risk. It covers an area where criminal organizations like the Gulf Cartel and Zetas are heavily active in.

State Department officials issued the following statement:

“We can confirm that one U.S. citizen was killed, and two U.S. citizens injured, in an attack in Tamaulipas, Mexico on January 4. We offer our sincerest condolences to the family on their loss, and we are providing them all appropriate consular assistance. We are closely monitoring local authorities’ investigation into this brutal attack. Out of respect for the family’s privacy, we have no further comment at this time.”

Conservative commentator Michelle Malkin commented on Twitter:

“Another day, another ambush, another American family snuffed out on the southern border. Let’s send thousands of extra American troops to the Middle East!”

The violence in Mexico is getting out of hand.

What is taking place in Mexico is no longer random acts of violence involving conventional firearms. A shootout in Culiacan back in October witnessed heavily-armed cartel gunmen overpower the Mexican government. They were able to take drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán’s son in the process.

Shortly afterward, an American family of nine fell victim to a brutal cartel attack.

It has become abundantly clear that Mexico is a failed state.

The U.S. will need to shift its security priorities by pulling out of the Middle East and building strong fortifications along the Southern border to prevent Mexico’s dysfunction from spilling over into America.

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting

The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.

Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.

The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.

The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.

It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
