Feb 4 (Reuters) – Jurors began deliberations in the trial of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, accused of running one of the world’s most infamous drug cartels, in Brooklyn federal court on Monday morning.

Guzman, 61, is accused of leading Mexico’s Sinaloa Cartel, which became one of the most powerful drug trafficking organizations in the world. He twice escaped from prison in Mexico, and will face the possibility of life in a U.S. prison if convicted.

To keep the undesirables out of the United States of America…

HOUSTON — The U.S. government is preparing to begin construction of more border walls and fencing in South Texas’ Rio Grande Valley, likely on federally owned land set aside as wildlife refuge property.

Heavy construction equipment was expected to arrive starting Monday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said. A photo posted by the nonprofit National Butterfly Center shows an excavator parked next to its property.

Is This A Reason Why Fidel Castro — April 28, 2016

Is This A Reason Why Fidel Castro

was always talking about Yankee Imperialism?   A bunch of smugglers were taking his fruits of labor out of Cuba to work in the United States of America. Should all of the seventeen  players who entered illegally into the USofA,  be on a list of those who need to be returned to their country of origin, to legalize their right to remain in America?

Talented Cuban baseball players paid a South Florida smuggling ring a percentage of their contract totaling  millions of American dollars, to leave the communist island in “secretive ventures that included phony documents, false identities and surreptitious boat voyages to Mexico, Haiti and the Dominican Republic, federal prosecutors say.”

From New York City to Patagonia bike rider hasn’t made contact with his family. — February 19, 2014

From New York City to Patagonia bike rider hasn’t made contact with his family.

Unfortunately his last message was rather cryptic.  I don’t think the Mexican military would ever escort anyone out of any territory.  I’ve visited Mexico on many occasions and I happen to be able to communicate with them using their native language.  We’ve been stopped and asked to open the trunk of our vehicle at many checkpoints on a trip that took us through many states starting at Mexico City traveling through Veracruz, Palenque, Chichén Itzá, Cancún, some other cities in the mountains on the return trip and some coastal cities excluding Acapulco this time because of the floods that year.  We’ve been warned by many not to stop or pick anyone on the road.  We have stopped in the state of Chiapas where there was an opposition leader of the government, who was so famous, the Mexicans were selling his likeness to the tourists.  Nothing happened because we heeded their advice and we had also resolved not be taken in by anyone.  We weren’t going to give a bribe to any government official had we’ve been caught speeding through any city.  We were prepared to lose our dignity fighting for our dishonor or honor.  An hour-long escort out of some area, is not a good description of his awareness of his location.  This escort, naïvely followed was probably a kidnapping.  That he was lucky to be able to communicate with his girlfriend, at a rest stop for lunch, was his last cry for help. “Crazy military stuff” is not an apt description of Mexico’s military operations.  Hopefully Barack Obama is able to intercede for this family and bring back their adventurer.

Sarah Ashley Schiear last heard from Harry Devert in an ominous text via the WhatsApp messenger app.

“Just got an hour and a half long escort out of some area it was too dangerous for me to be,” the message said. “Stopping for lunch and … voilà Internet. … Gonna get back on the road soon. Apparently there’s another military escort waiting for me in some other town… I’m running way late because of the crazy military stuff…hopefully get a chance to talk to you tonight when I (hopefully) finally arrive.”

Because some areas in Mexico are reportedly unstable, those close to Devert fear he is in danger.

Ann Devert, Harry’s mom, heard from a friend who recently returned from Michoacan, where vigilante self-defense groups in numerous communities have engaged in deadly confrontations with the Knights Templar drug cartel.

After vigilantes threatened to descend on a key cartel area last month, the Mexican government sent in thousands of troops and police to try to keep the peace. The government has even joined forces with the vigilantes as the Knights Templar become further entrenched in the agricultural state.

The family feels Harry is alive and that he is waiting to be found.  He was last seen traveling to the town of Zihuatanejo.  The family is using Harry’s blog and other websites including  Hopefully someone who is in the area has seen Harry and is also not afraid to contact the authorities.  It’s sad he was just enjoying life writing about his travels and that his adventure has been delayed by persons unknown.  Please help find Harry soon.  Reblog this to all your Mexican friends.  There is at least one person who saw Harry with the “military.”

  • Sofía Gaviria Correa, candidata al Senado por el Partido Liberal, asegura que el bajón del presidente Santos en la encuestas es consecuencia de las negociaciones de paz en La Habana. Contrario a lo que muchos piensan, para ella el Presiente es un hombre con muchas ejecutorias. Pero son las FARC y su falta de compromiso con la paz lo que tiene molestos a los colombianos. Dice que las FARC no se sentaron a la Mesa vencedoras, pero el mal manejo que le ha dado el Gobierno les dio igualdad y soberbia. “El responsable no es Uribe ni las pocas falencias que ha tenido Santos, fueron la FARC las que derrumbaron la imagen del Presidente”, afirma Sofía Gaviria.
