than what the hell is he good for?

The bloodbath continues along our southern border and now word is coming in that Los Zetas, the highly trained killers formerly with the Gulf Cartel, have crossed into the United States and taken over at least two ranches in the Laredo, Texas area. I am receiving word that the owners of the ranches have evacuated without being harmed.

Founder of the San Diego Minutemen Jeff Schwilk tipped me off to this story and passes along the following information on the location. The ranches are said to be “near Mines Rd. and Minerales Annex Rd about 10 miles NW of I-35”.

This is job of the president and the federal government. If they can’t figure that out then they have no business in the job, period!

memeorandum thread here.

Now if it is not true, then…nevermind. I’ll post updates when I know more.

Update: Confederate Yankee has done some leg work and it looks like it is not true, or at least not what it sounds like, so for now I will use the strike tag, If I get evidence in the other direction I will un-strike.

Update 2: This is going to the top of Memeorandum, in record time, bad sign as it appears false but on that topic Moonbattery makes a good point:

Is this really happening? Probably not (despite the upsurge in violence just over the border), but what’s even scarier than the heavily armed Los Zetas is that stories like this have become difficult to confirm or refute.

Without confirmation from some authority I’ve gotta assume false unless overwhelming evidence shows otherwise, and a lot of memeorandum hits doesn’t qualify as overwhelming evidence.

Update 3: The confederate yankee gets his own thread on memeorandum

Update 4: Looks Like I’m going to have to unstrike from this report.

  1. It may be just a matter of time before para-military gangs shoot it out with American LEO’s and Border Patrol.
    Mara Salvatrucha (Mara, and MS-13) is a gang that has been here for a while. They have been known to act as muscle for drug cartels here in the US. MS-13 are El Salvadoran in origin. In 1982, i trained El Salvadoran soldiers in Ft. Bragg. I wonder if any of those guys ended up here in the US after the civil war was over.
    The point being, the Mexican drug cartels use indigenous US gangs to do their state side work. This is already a problem. And i have read reports of veterans from Iraq & Afghanistan leaving the service and working the gang trade. It’s a bad economy, what’s a boy to do?

    Dude, have you learned nothing?

    Take your meds first. Then post…

    “The real scary thing is that just a few years ago we would dismiss a report like this out of hand, even if false the fact that we don’t says a lot about the border situation none of it good.”

    No, it says a lot about YOU, and the insanity that has gripped nearly everyone on your side of the spectrum.

  4. […] Reports are now coming in it may be a false alarm, but how do we really […]

  5. […] fairness to everyone I posed on the story myself when I saw it with a qualifier or two but my update striking it came within 5 min of the first post. # 24 July, 2010 @ 19:01 by datechguy […]
