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.
He asserted that “there is no criminal group with the capacity to successfully challenge the federal security forces”.
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.
I was wondering when we would see another public act of communication by the CJNG, two weeks after the attack on Harfuch

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.
VIDEO: America First PAC Defends Marjorie Greene and Rips Her Swamp Opponent a New One
Congressional candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene is going on offense against her Republican rival John Cowan.
Greene is currently running in Georgia’s 14th congressional district and will be facing off against Cowan during a runoff election on August 11.
Drain the DC Swamp PAC, a conservative PAC that promotes America First candidates, recently posted several messages on FB in favor of Greene.
On August 4, 2020, the PAC posted “We fully endorse Marjorie Taylor Greene for Congress for Congress and call on all patriots in Northwest Georgia to turn out for her and VOTE on August 11th. She is pro-Trump and conservative. Our nation is under attack by godless socialists who hate America and we need a fighter in Congress who will stop them. These same socialists are trying to vote in the primary to stop Marjorie Greene. We must not let that happen! Vote Marjorie Greene to save America from the radical left!”
A few days later, the PAC page attacked Cowan by declaring that “John Cowan is the SWAMP and is backed by the SWAMP.”
John Cowan is the SWAMP and is backed by the SWAMP. He won’t stand up to the socialists. He is OK with renaming our great Georgia military bases – Fort Benning and Fort Stewart. Fort Benning trains the US Army Infantry, Airborne, and Rangers. Fort Stewart is the home of the prestigious 3rd Infantry Division.These two bases trained and deployed America’s combat soldiers all throughout the world and they are the same bases who trained the fighting men who won two world wars.Vote AGAINST sellout John Cowan.
The PAC called on voters in Georgia’s 14th district to vote against Cowan “or he will sell out to the socialists.”
Drain the DC Swamp PAC is an organization that promotes conservative policies such as “protecting life to protecting our borders, we support those who fight for traditional values, our Constitution, and our Country.”
The PAC also supports “President Trump’s vision of a government of, by, and for the people. We believe the people have the right to know what their government is doing, and support leaders who aren’t afraid to hold it accountable.”
This is one race America First champions cannot ignore.
