A narco-terrorist and high-ranking leader in the Cartel Del Noreste (CDN) faction of Los Zetas was shot in a series of shootouts with state police in the border of city of Nuevo Laredo.
The drug lord and his close associates were nearly captured on New Year’s Eve. This incident led to subsequent shootouts the following day as cartel assailants targeted officers.
Mexico’s recently created National Guard stayed on the sidelines during these attacks.
The New Year’s Day shootouts had several injuries and casualties. Additionally, one innocent bystander was shot near a hospital. As a response to the ongoing violence, the Webb County Sheriff in Texas issued an alert advising residents to not go into Mexico. Similarly, the U.S. Consulate in Nuevo Laredo asked American citizens to take the violence in account when traveling.
Breitbart Texas reported that drug lord in question was Hector Raul “El Tory” Luna Luna. Three cartel gunmen were killed while one police officer sustained injuries, according to reports from U.S. law enforcement sources working in Nuevo Leon.
Despite being wounded during the exchange, El Tory was able to escape with the aid from “Hell’s Troops or Tropas Del Infierno,” a group in armored vehicles to CDN-Los Zetas and an ally Juan Gerardo “El Huevo” Trevino Chavez. El Tory is the same cartel actor behind the 2008 grenade and shooting attack on the U.S. Consulate in Monterrey.
El Tory was captured in 2010, but a Mexican judged released him in 2018 under suspicious circumstances.
This shootout represents another example of how Mexico has increasingly become a failed state.
Given these disturbing developments, the U.S. should consider following through with the construction of a border wall and a radical overhaul of its immigration system that goes along with its national security needs and economic interests.
Ohio Republican Rob Portman Announces that He Won’t Be Seeking Re-Election
America first nationalists must capitalize on this opening in the senate.
On January 25, 2021, Ohio Senator Rob Portman announced that he will not be seeking re-election in 2022. The 2022 election cycle will be a critical mid-term cycle which will determine what course the Republican Party will take in the wake of Trump’s defeat.
According to a report at The Epoch Times, Portman cited “partisan gridlock in Congress and political polarization” as his main reasons for leaving the Senate.
“I feel fortunate to have been entrusted by the people of Ohio to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Today, I am announcing that I have made a decision not to run again in 2022,” Portman said in a statement.
The Republican senator continued, “I don’t think any Senate office has been more successful in getting things done, but honestly, it has gotten harder and harder to break through the partisan gridlock and make progress on substantive policy, and that has contributed to my decision.”
In Portman’s view, the United States has become “increasingly polarized where members of both parties are being pushed further to the right and further to the left, and that means too few people who are actively looking to find common ground.” Portman also contended that “This is not a new phenomenon, of course, but a problem that has gotten worse over the past few decades.” He concluded by stating that “This is a tough time to be in public service.”
Portman accompanies his colleagues Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey and North Carolina Senator Richard Burr in retiring from office. Portman’s presence won’t be missed. He voted for the Iraq War and even betrayed President Trump by voting against his national emergency declaration at the border. To add insult to injury, Portman has routinely talked smack about President Trump behind his back.
2022 is shaping up to be an interesting year for Republicans with numerous seats in play. With regards to open seats, there will be unique opportunities for America First nationalists to shine in. Ohio is ground zero for the emerging populist realignment taking place in America. Once a state that could go either way during a given election cycle, Ohio is now a safe Republican state.
America First nationalists should milk this opening for what it’s worth and place a staunch nationalist to run for the open GOP seat in 2022. This will be the first midterm where populists can begin purging the party of neocons and other establishment types.
