Published

The Independent recently reported on a video where members of a rapidly growing Mexican cartel showed off military-style weaponry and armored pick-up trucks.

Mexican security officials are now investigating this video that was promoted by members of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CING).

Alfonso Durazo, secretary of security and civilian protection, claims that this video was “propaganda” and is being reviewed in order to determine its veracity.

The report from the Independent noted that “Many of the vehicles parked on a dirt road in the video have improvised gun turrets or plate-steel armour welded onto them.”

A number of masked men, who donned bulletproof vests and brandished rifles were heard chanting they are “people of Mench.” Mencho refers to the nickname of Jalisco New Generation Cartel leader Nemesio Oseguera.

Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrador prefers a less confrontational approach to tackling drug cartels compared to his predecessors. He believes that pursuing poverty programs and fixing unemployment will solve the cartel problem.

AMLO ‘s “hugs, not bullets” strategy has received a substantial amount of criticism from analysts both domestic and foreign.

“They are sending a clear message… that they basically rule Mexico, not Lopez Obrador,” Mike Vigil, a former chief of international operations for the US Drug Enforcement Administration, said to Reuters.

Vigil believes that AMLO’s strategy had “only led these cartels to operate with more impunity”.

Falko Ernst, a senior analyst specializing in Mexican affairs for the International Crisis Group, believes that the video conveyed a resolute warning over potential retaliation against the government by the cartel.

“This video, taken yesterday in the Jalisco Sierra as I’m told, is more than clear in its message toward the fed gov: You come after us, and we will strike back,” Ernst tweeted.

He added: “Rather than a declaration of war, from my perspective it’s primarily geared at guarding the status quo, at a crucial time where the fed gov has to define its future posture regarding the CJNG.”

CJNG is seen as Mexico’s most powerful cartel, next to the Sinaloa Cartel, which was formerly led by Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.

At the end of June, the cartel was suspected to be the perpetrator of an attack on Omar Garcia Harfuch, the Mexico City Public Security Chief.

The CJNG’s rapid ascent demonstrates the need for the U.S. to take border security seriously and completely seal off its border.

If it fails to do so, Mexican cartel violence will make its way up here.

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.
