CARTEL SHOOTOUT: High-Ranking Mexican Drug Lord was Gunned At During Chaos Near Border

Published

on

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.

It’s not just everyday shootings involving the use of weapons and equipment you can find at your local gun store; there is now military-grade weaponry being used across the American border,

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.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
