It’s not exactly a secret to claim that public officials in Mexico are corrupt.

To be fair, public officials in every country are corrupt.

And yet, Mexico stands on its own – along with pretty much the entire continent of Africa.

Mexican drug lord “El Chapo” reportedly paid $100 million to Mexico’s now-former president.

This was after Nieto asked for an initial $250 million!

Sinaloa drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman paid a $100 million bribe to former Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto in 2012, according to testimony given in a New York federal court on Tuesday.

The testimony was given by Colombian drug lord Alex Cifuentes Villa, who said that Peña Nieto first contacted Guzman “about the time he was elected president in late 2012, asking the drug lord for $250 million in exchange for calling off a nationwide manhunt for him,” The New York Times reported.

Cifuentes testified that Guzman paid off multiple Mexican officials and, on at least two occasions, “gave the Mexican military between $10 million and $12 million to launch operations to ‘either kill or capture’ associates of the Beltrán-Leyva brothers during his war with them.”

Senator Ted Cruz, who was recently elected to his second term in office, knows exactly how to pay for the border wall Democrats so desperately despise.

It won’t even cost the American people a single cent.

The bill is called Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order Act, or EL CHAPO Act.

How could Democrats say no to this?

From Daily Caller:

The bill would designate any money and assets seized from notorious gangster Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán and allocate them for the construction of the border wall. El Chapo was extradited to the U.S. in 2017 to face charges related to running one of the most notorious drug cartels in the world.

El Chapo was worth $14 billion at the time of his arrest.

President Trump is only asking for $5 billion.

Speaking of Mexico…

From Daily Wire:

The Mexican government announced they are investigating the leak of a video that showed an October 2018 ambush by a Mexican drug cartel on a truck that was transporting four police officers.

“The video depicts the ambush killing of four officers of the Secretariat of Security of the State of Mexico (SSEM),” Robert Arce of Breitbart’s Border and Cartel team reported. “They were traveling on a mountain road in the municipality of Almoloya de Alquisiras on October 28 of this year at the time of their deaths.”

Joe Biden Wants Congress To Ban Chokeholds And Work On Police Reform

Published

on

Former Vice President and current Democratic Party presumptive nominee Joe Biden has called on Congress to take up the fight for police reform now instead of waiting until November. These comments come just a day after President Trump encouraged the use of military force to try and bring the chaos reigning in many cities across the country as violent protests explode, leading to riots, looting, and even shootings. Biden wants to see lawmakers ban the use of chokeholds by law enforcement officers with a federal law. Along with this he wants to see a national list of use-of-force best practices and for military grade equipment to stop being transferred over to local police departments. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “If Mitch McConnell can bring in the Senate to confirm Trump’s unqualified judicial nominees who will run roughshod over our Constitution now, it’s time to pass legislation that will give true meaning to our constitutional promise of equal protection under the law,” Biden said. Biden then went on to vow that he would make dealing with institutional racism one of his top priorities during his 100 days in office, should he defeat Trump in the upcoming presidential election. He also restated that he supports a police oversight commission. “Bad cops should be dealt with severely and swiftly,” Biden stated. “We set up in the Justice Department the ability for the Civil Rights Division to go in and look at the practices and policies of police departments. That’s why we were able to stop stop and frisk,” Biden told leaders gathered at the Bethel AME Church. “Reestablish that with more teeth in it because we also have to fundamentally change the way in which police are trained.” How can Biden claim to deal with institutional racism? Racism is a…

Biden Delivers Speech On Racism, Says Trump Is ‘Part Of The Problem’

Published

During remarks delivered by Democratic Party presumptive nominee Joe Biden concerning the rioting, looting, and deadly protests happening across the country in the wake of George Floyd’s death at the hands of police officers, the former vice president couldn’t resist sliding in a big shot at President Trump. “The president of the United States must be part of the solution, not part of the problem,” Biden said during the speech Tuesday morning. “But this president today is part of the problem and accelerates it.” The speech, so far, is the most direct assault on the president’s handling of the current civil unrest rocking the country after Floyd’s tragic death in Minneapolis on May 25. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “When he tweeted the words when the looting starts the shooting starts, they weren’t the words of the president, they were the words of a racist Miami police chief in the 1960s,” Biden said, referencing Trump’s controversial tweets over the last week. “The country is crying out for leadership. Leadership that can unite us, leadership that brings us together. Leadership that can recognize pain and deep grief of communities that have had a knee on their neck for a long time,” he said. “There’s no place for violence, no place for looting, or destroying property or destroying churches or destroying businesses.” As this was a prime opportunity for Biden to chit-chat about the upcoming presidential election later this year, the presumptive nominee promised that he would “seek to heal the racial wounds that have long plagued our country.” What that entails or how he plans to do such a thing still remain a mystery.
