Ildefonso Ortiz and Brandon Darby reported on a new drug cartel outfit that’s challenging the Los Zetas cartel.
This new gang on the block, “Los Billy’s,” rose up in late 2019 thanks to numerous independent methamphetamine distributors in the Monterrey area teaming up with them.
This alliance was spurred following the Cartel Del Noreste (CDN) faction of Los Zetas kicking off a violent campaign penetrating into the state of Nuevo Leon.
CDN started killing hundreds of their rivals by offering an ultimatum to either join their ranks or face a gruesome death.
According to Nuevo Leon officials, CDN was responsible for over 80 percent of murders in the state of Monterrey alone.
U.S. officials in Nuevo Leon reported that the majority of independent drug distributors rejected CDN’s offers to work with them due to cartel’s heavy-handed policies, which generally have a negative impact on profit margins.
Because of this environment, several street dealers were compelled to forge alliances to stand up against the CDN
After conducting a number of interviews with U.S. law enforcement agencies in Mexico, Breitbart News was able to learn more about the leader of Los Billy’s, Saul “El Chaparro or Tumbado” Salinas Gonzalez.
Authorities have tracked Salinas’ frequent trips to Texas, where he alleges to be a legitimate businessman. Agents operating under Nuevo Leon’s State Investigation’s Agency have conducted raids in 30 different drugstores that belong to Los Billy’s which directly answer to Salinas.
Salinas and his girlfriend, Ana Luisa Garcia Duque, were arrested in the suburb of Santa Catarina. The couple were caught while driving a white BMW sedan with license plates from the state of Morelos. However, they were released after officials could not find much evidence against them.
Law enforcement sources informed Breitbart Texas that several members of Los Billy’s are under investigation for the murder of one of their ex-members. Back in February, Breitbart Texas covered the murder of Rodolfo “El Rodo” Hinojosa, the leader of a drug distribution network who also earned a notorious reputation as an underground rapper. At first, Nuevo Leon investigators pinned the blame for murders on CDN. However, new evidence demonstrates a rift that occurred between Los Billy’s members when El Rodo parted ways with the organization after threatening to conduct a hostile takeover.
Ildefonso Ortiz and Brandon Darby noted that “A future arrest of Salinas in the U.S. or Mexico could lead his current second-in-command to rise, a man known only as “Tony Montana.’”
It’s safe to say that Mexico is a failed state. On a seemingly monthly basis, new cartels or criminal elements are popping up.
Taking this into consideration, the U.S. needs to get serious about border security and start walling itself off from Mexico’s instability.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
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.
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.
