Media Blackout: Mexican Drug Cartels Seize Texas Ranch

Admittedly, we sat on this story for a few weeks. Initial reports that we read from the Cypress Times and Examiner and other sources left the validity of story somewhat hazy. While there were at least two police sources that had confirmed the story, according to reports, there were dozens that completely denied it, including direct calls to the sheriff’s office.

It was hard to believe at first, though we suspected it was a legitimate report from alternative media. Today, a link to a new Examiner story via Check It News seems to finally confirm that a Texas rancher’s land has been seized by Mexico’s notorious Los Zetas drug cartel. Los Zetas is reported to be a powerful drug cartel made up of ex-military soldiers who were originally trained by the United States to fight against drug cartels. Once other drug cartel leaders were eliminated, Los Zetas stepped in to take over drug smuggling, kidnapping and other criminal activities.

After recent reports that a Mexican drug cartel has offered a $1,000,000 bounty for the head of Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio and the fact that hundreds of acres of sovereign U.S. land has been closed to the public due to drug smuggling, it is becoming clear that the violence is no longer being restricted to just Mexico.

According to the Examiner, we are now faced with Mexican drug cartels violating the sovereign rights of the United States:

The police blotter tells the story of the events that unfolded on July 23rd;

“On Friday 7-23-10 Laredo Webb informed that their county SWAT Team is conducting an operation in the Mines Rd. area. According to LT. Garcia with LSO (Laredo Sheriff Office) received a call from a ranch owner stating that the Zetas had taken over his ranch. As per the 17 (reporting person) he informed them that they stated La Compania (area name for Zetas) was taking the ranch and no one was permitted on the ranch without permission. SO (Sheriff Office) will have an unmarked green Ford Taurus with two officers stationed at Los Compadres and a white Chevy Tahoe with two officers stationed at Mineral Rd. The LSO (Laredo Sheriff Office) will maintain surveillance in the area and advise if action is taken. Susp (suspect) Veh (vehicle) are described as a gray or silver Audi, a BLK (black) Escalade or Navigator and a van truck with a logo of a car wash spot free on the side. Border Patrol also has their response team on scene. Also known info of BMW’s and Corvettes entering and leaving the area. Auth LT Lichtenberger if assistance is requested LPD (Laredo Police Department) will secure the outer perimeter. (07/24/10 07:42:10 NR1873)”

Cartels have crossed the sovereign borders of the United States causing multiple agencies to respond and the end result was a media blackout. It’s well documented that media blackouts in Mexico are happening because the cartels are threatening reporters and news outlets with bodily harm. The question is why American law enforcement agencies are giving reporters the “We can neither confirm nor deny the incident happened line?”

The approximate location of the U.S. ranch taken by the Zetas was 10 miles northwest of I-35 off Mines Road and Minerales Annex Road.

What, exactly, is the reason that south Texas police and federal border patrol refused to provide information about this to the media?

If we had to guess, it’s because no one in the media pressed them enough. This story had to be kept under wraps, especially considering the illegal immigration debate fermenting throughout the United States.

One question to ask is, if survivalist-types, right wing Christians and ex-US military veterans are prime suspects for domestic terrorism, then what would we call an invading foreign drug cartel that has taken control of private land, by force, owned by a citizen of the United States?

We suspect that even this story will fall short of convincing those who believe anti-illegal immigration legislation is racist to begin considering serious border security measures. Until proponents of open borders in the north become directly affected by the violence and crime occurring in Texas, Arizona, southern California, and New Mexico, they will not change their opinions.

And so long as state and federal governments, and the mainstream media do not put pressure on drug cartels and the violence in the southern border states, the invading criminals will continue with their activities, expanding even further into America. Rather than deploying the National Guard to police US citizens, perhaps it’s time that they be used for what they were intended, defending our borders from foreign invasion.

    Wow. Time to lock and load…

  2. dwayne chandler says:

    agreed.
    How low our Republic, and ourselves, if we allow our military
    to die defending our Republic abroad, but do nothing to stop
    armed enemies from just across our borders.

  3. dwayne chandler says:

    Agreed.
    How low our Republic has fallen, and ourselves, if we allow our military
    to die defending our Republic abroad, but do nothing to stop
    armed enemies from just across our borders.

    Corruption cover-up

  5. ANON says:

    the  u.s. government looks the other way  because they’re paid to look the other way…

  6. Tom says:

    I’ve got some empty ice chests.  Want to play?

  7. Scar says:

    Too bad none of the LE in the know about this were “Oath Keepers”. Maybe they could’ve leaked something to the Internet.

    In other news, Oficials say that they can neither confirm or deny reports that Imperial Japanese aircraft have bombed Pearl Harbor, HI.

    In related news, British officials said they could neither confirm or deny rumors of  German military units overrunning Poland.

  8. Comments…..Where are those Federal Agents from Ruby Ridge and Waco?  That’s all I want to know!

  9. Paul Revere says:

    Forget it Mac.  Obama is a big pussy who loves licking Felipe Calderon’s boots.  He isn’t going to do shit about the border because he hates what this great country stands for.  It won’t be long before there are huge drug wars in San Antonio and Houston.  Fortunately the legal system in Texas looks kindly on vigilantes who kill criminals in the act and so it will be a bloody free for all when the Obama supported drug lords cross the Texas line.  Granted, most of the vigilante vengeance will be conducted in the night, but conducted it will be.  Texas is a big state and the soil is well suited for the human fertilizer coming across Rio Grande river………. and traitors against the U.S. Constitution coming from Washington D.C.     Both are enemies of this state and neither is welcome here.    

  10. Tom says:

    USS Indianapolis (CA35) pulled out of Pearl the night “before”.  One of the survivors lives in my town. 
    Hooper: You were on the Indianapolis?
    Brody: What happened?
    Quint: Japanese submarine slammed two torpedoes into our side, Chief. We was comin’ back from the island of Tinian to Leyte… just delivered the bomb. The Hiroshima bomb. Eleven hundred men went into the water. Vessel went down in 12 minutes.

  11. MarineVET says:

    The “NEWS” is ONLY what they want us to know.  The news is what “they” say it is.

    TPTB want a North American Union.  They want open borders.

    This clearly won’t make main street media as it goes against their objectives.

    IF it is true, I can’t believe that local militia isn’t stepping in.

    Everyone saw how the gov helped the Katrina victims.  Instead of getting them food and water, they went house to house illegally confiscating law abiding citizens’ guns.

  12. comment says:

    hey you all… quit whining and start working to ensure that NO incumbent gets re elected.

    Nothing happens until the corrupt whores in Congress get replaced.

    Let’s focus on making it happen.

  13. Sheldon Plankton says:

    Prohibition — you gotta love it!  The violence and corruption will end only when we end the failed drug war, just as it did when we ended the failed alcohol war.

  14. Hermes says:

    I want to know what happened. Did they raid the ranch and dump lead, center mass, or did they….deport them and tell them hasta la vista. I’m hoping they smoked them, but I don’t think I should get my hopes.

  15. mickey the pirate says:

    I see a problem with the elections in the fall..We the amerikan sucker dupes will not win..OK lots of people want the incumbents out..that sounds easy, vote for the other clown running for office.. However, how many of these candidates are also hidden parts of the SAME political families?? Look at Ron Paul (R Tx) ..I like him personally, however, with his idiot son being set up as a congressman for a different state, I start to see something I do not like..nepotism and a family dynasty being built just like the Kennedys, Roosevelts and Bushes..NO DAMN THANKS…Perhaps old Ron Paul needs to retire without leaving his son behind in Congress. However, how do you get rid of the intrenched political/leadership class?? You as a common sheeple are not invited to their country clubs or schools, and you sure as snot will not be able to get any sheep on the ballot..You do not have the pull, buddies, money or media connections to pull it off. The system is rigged and you will NEVER be given any ropes to pull..go figure out something else to jawbone about, Politics is not about “we the people” it never was, those in power have several recurring songs they play over and over on/for you..for example abortion, taxes, guns, immigration ect..both sides disagree strongly and will never compromise on these things..the political class keeps the serfs stirred up with these NON issues and keeps their attention focused on the smoke and sounds, not on the thieves behind the curtain pulling the levers. You figure out why a congressman will pay millions to get a job that does not pay all that well..its easy and it always has been…they are stealingor getting bought off for a lot more than they are getting paid as a salary.. Why do we always try to make it difficult? it really is simple..follow the money…

  16. MadMarkie says:

    @ Sheldon Plankton –

    You Sir are 100% correct in every aspect of your comment. Prohibition in any form has NEVER worked! All it does is to enrich the criminals who are willing to provide the prohibited item/substance. Some of these criminals in the so-called “war on drugs” exist right in our own government; they use this illegal income to fund the projects/programs that they want to keep ‘off-the-books’.

    Where in the Constitution of the United States does it say that it is the right or duty of the government to tell its citizens what they can or cannot put into their body? No place!

    The f—ing FDA does a wonderful job of keeping raw milk and other natural products away from the people while permiting/facilitating their ‘homies’ over at big pharma to put harmful prescription drugs on the market.

    End the war on drugs ………. yesterday! (fat chance!!!)

  17. TruckerGirl says:

    Remember the Alamo!!

  18. VRF says:

    Cover ups..redirection..media black outs..etc..what more could you expect from our blind “leaders”

    snipers could have a field day out there

  19. These people are fools. They will send our boys and girls to afpak to ‘defend the country’, but won’t defend our own borders. Fools, I say, fools.
    One must ask Why? Who Benefits? Who has the power to pull this off and cover it up?
    I predict lead will fly soon in the US.
    Cheers,
    Colonel X
    P.S. VRF, I agree send in the Scout Snipers and Recon Companies. That would be a picnic for those guys.

  20. VRF says:

    saw on TV a little while ago..the Gov. says they are going to throw a bunch of money and border patrols at the problem.., thats not going to saolve it now.. the horse is already out of the barn..its time to bring the troops home and secure our borders, and protect our citizens from our own governments stupidity and ignorance.

  21. The US Gov’t Inc. May see no profit in protecting our boarders. Their is an ongoing profit motive for their wars and the secutity apparatus created by the Islamic “boogie man”.       

  22. Clem says:

    So where is the Department Of Homeland Security? Is this just a ploy to make every American cry out ,”we need military personnel on our streets”? We lack leaders with integrity.
    The U.S. Government is responsible for border security while we the people are responsible for our homes and businesses.
    Get ready for more of this as an international police force is established and moves in. This, I believe is the agenda, as it will provide the sociopaths in power adequate security and further undermine our personal liberties.

    As for solutions…protect yourself and your families.

  23. Diane says:

    What are they waiting for?  Hard to believe

  24. Robert says:

    This is clearly a job for the national guard not for the local police or the DEA for the simple fact that they breached our border and seized the land of American citizens.  As for Clem’s reply about the international police, they don’t need an excuse because it is already coming my friend as a way to secure our arms and take away our right to form a militia. That is the biggest fear of our government today is our right to bare arms.

  25. Many keep talking about the confiscation of our arms. Forget it. They’ll never get them. You think the violence on the border is bad? Ha! Just wait until they try to take the 10s of millions of unregistered, undocumented arms from the people. They don’t have enough manpower and the don’t have enough units of blood to keep what little manpower they have alive. A move to do this would confirm the governments intentions of war against The People. Maybe the cities would cow but in rural America, we know what it means. They can’t get them. They’ve been trying for years. For every gun they take 10 will be aimed at their heads.

  26. MelTX says:

    Most people who own firearms will never aim anything at someone’s head.  Especially someone who has a weapon aimed at them.  Nice thought… but forget it.  I  wish gun owners would stand – but it won’t happen. 

  27. Ten Megaton says:

    Comments…..MelTX…Just hide and watch.

  28. MelTX says:

    “Most people”.  Not all.   I’m assuming that we will both be two of the few….

  29. Texmex says:

    the reason for there being a media blackout is because alot of people down here are scared. we hear it every day, 16 people getting kidnapped and executed on the side of the road, left there to serve as an example, public officials having armed police stationed outside their homes, people down here are genuinely scared for their lives, political leaders have been targeted and no one can do anything. our country has turned a blind eye on us. its not because we don’t want to do anything, its because we can’t.

  30. You completed several fine points there. I did a search on the theme and found the majority of persons will agree with your blog. Some newport news airport. Thank’s for you recommend.

  31. Harry says:

    As for those ranchers who were run off their land by Los Zetas, I would bet their cattle are stolen or dead by now and their land is covered with marijuwana plants treated with DDT. And I also bet our morron government would try to procecute the rancher for allowing the pot plants to be on his land, and bring EPA fines against him because they think it’s his responsibility about his land being contaminated with DDT. It’s the old “make the victom the criminal” and do nothing about Los Zeta.
