The Jalisco New Generation cartel is the new kid on the block in Mexico now that the old Zetas cartel is losing prominence.
A CBS News report noted that the new cartel is “fighting medieval-style battles, complete with fortified redoubts, to expand nationwide, from the outskirts of Mexico City, into the tourist resorts around Cancun, and along the northern border.”
On March 11, 2020, U.S. law enforcement authorities revealed that they arrested hundreds of people in an operation singling out the cartel. According to their announcement, the Justice Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) said that the joint operation, known as Projected Python, produced more than 600 arrests and 350 indictments at the state and federal level.
Nevertheless, the Jalisco cartel continues to flex its muscles by attempting to buy belt-fed M-60 machine guns in the United States and taking down a Mexican military helicopter with a rocket-propelled grenade, according to law enforcement officials reports.
“It seems like the Jalisco New Generation group is taking over everywhere,” declared a priest in the western city of Apatzingan. “It seems like they allow people to work, and they don’t prey on civilians, they don’t kidnap, they don’t steal vehicles, they just go about their drug business.”
The Jalisco cartel was allegedly responsible for a recent ambush in the state of Michoacán, where gunmen killed 14 state police officers.
Jalisco employs quasi-military tactics, and their gunmen often use military camouflage. In the southern state of Guerrero, they welded thick armor plating to a truck to create a makeshift tank.
The Mexican government has largely ignored using force against the cartels. Recently the foreign relations department announced that the administration of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador “is committed to eliminating inequality and violence by ending the war on drugs … the use of force is no longer the first option.”
With the Sinaloa cartel largely weakened after the arrest of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán, now Nemesio Oseguera, “El Mencho” , is the DEA’s most-wanted fugitive. He currently has a $10 million reward on his head.
Two of El Mencho’s children are being held in custody in the U.S. on drug trafficking charges.
The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters
Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.
Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters.
Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits.
He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.
The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:
Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…
By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.
For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats.
Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another.
In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election.
Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
