We can’t believe the corrupt Mexican government and we can’t believe the corrupt Obama-Holder government, and we can’t believe the G.W. Bush government, so there’s that to begin this story, but perhaps we can believe a DEA agent who has testified in this case. As you read, think about how different this story would be if our borders were secure. None of this would be necessary if we had used our God-given common sense to do whatever necessary to keep illegals out. In exchange for weapons from the U.S. (Fast and Furious) and information on rival cartels from the Sinaloa cartel, Sinaloa was allowed to smuggle billions of dollars worth of drugs into the U.S. We apparently entered into agreements with Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman or Joaquin Guzman Loera, who is described as “the most powerful drug trafficker in the world” by the U.S. Treasury Department. He is apparently alive and living large somewhere.
Chicago is the hub of the cartel’s activities in the U.S. This article titled “Why Mexico’s Sinaloa Cartel Loves Selling Drugs in Chicago” gives details of some of the names you will read below, including Guzman who Chicago’s Crime Commission said was “Public Enemy No. 1, the only person to hold that distinction since Al Capone. At least Capone was an American gang member.
In Chicago, the cartel has a near monopoly. “I’d say 70 to 80 percent of the narcotics here are controlled by Sinaloa and Chapo Guzmán,” says Jack Riley, director of the DEA’s Chicago office. “Virtually all of our major investigations at some point lead back to other investigations tied to Sinaloa.”
A question might be, why would Chicago’s Mayor and other City Fathers not bother to point a finger to the White House and the DOJ, no matter the year or who sat in the White House? Rather than that, they’ve simply disarmed their citizens, knowing the danger on every street in the city. I can’t even begin to comprehend the kick-backs in that dreadful city.
A Mexican newspaper, El Universal says the DEA and the “Justice Department prosecutors” met and negotiated secretly with members of drug cartels to obtain information from rival organizations.” The outcome, according to El Universal, was “increased violence throughout the country.”
Court documents, a copy of which is hereby given that the U.S. government knew and authorized meetings and negotiations with members of Mexican cartels, especially the Sinaloa, for information of its rivals, and it was achieved seizures of shipments and arrests, which triggered the violence in Mexico during the presidency of Vicente Fox and Felipe Calderon.

El Universal claims that the Mexican government was not notified that the U.S. was operating in this manner inside Mexico. It quotes Edgardo Buscaglia, a professor at Columbia University saying the DEA has operated in the same way in Colombia since the ’80s, in Cambodia, in Thailand, and in Afghanistan — “standard modus-operandi of the agency:
Of course, this modus operandi involves a violation of public international law, besides being more fuel to the fire of violence, violations of due process and human rights….” (source linked above)
The report seemingly aligns with claims made by Jesus Vicente Zambada-Niebla, the Sinaloa cartel’s “logistics coordinator” and son of cartel leader Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada…..
DEA agent Manuel Castanon reportedly told the Chicago court that he met with Zambada-Niebla and two other people — DEA agent David Herrod and a cooperating source [Sinaloa lawyer Loya Castro] — for about 30 minutes in a Mexico City hotel room. Castanon said he had worked with them since 2005….
Using court documents as evidence, El Universal reports that DEA agents met with high-level Sinaloa cartel officials more than 50 times since 2000. The relationship led to a “23-ton cocaine seizure” and other seizures from “various drug trafficking organizations,” according to former Justice Department prosecutor Patrick Hearn, who cited DEA special agent Steve Fraga….
“The DEA agents met with members of the cartel in Mexico to obtain information about their rivals and simultaneously built a network of informants who sign drug cooperation agreements, subject to results, to enable them to obtain future benefits, including cancellation of charges in the U.S.,” the report adds.
Zambada-Niebla was extradited to Chicago in February 2010, where his lawyer argued that he was “immune from arrest or prosecution” due to his cooperation with U.S. federal agents.
As previously reported by TheBlaze, the “logistics coordinator” also argued in court that “Operation Fast and Furious” was part of the agreement to finance and arm the cartel in exchange for valuable information that would help the government take down its rival cartels.
The Sinaloa Cartel, headed by Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, reportedly supplies 80 percent of the drugs that enter Chicago and operates in various cities across the U.S.
Brian Terry and Jaime Zapata are still dead. Consider the implications of the drugs spread throughout the U.S. over these many years, and the young people whose lives have been ruined, and whose lives they have ruined, due to both Democrats and Republicans REFUSING TO CLOSE OUR BORDERS.
In May 2013 The Examiner had a story that the U.S. offered to capture Guzman and the Mexican “army and navy” blocked it, against the wishes of President Felipe Calderon. Guzman was named in Forbes’ Magazine’s list of Most Powerful People in the World.
Remember that the Obama administration said the U.S. bad guys (not the government) were responsible for smuggling long-guns into Mexico, and those guns were used to kill Mexican civilians — while it was the U.S. government supplying them, all along. In all this mess was a government call to ban these guns which they obviously feared Second Amendment right’s advocates were ‘clinging to,’ along with their Bibles, and perhaps doing so ‘bitterly’ because our government is so completely out-of-control. Find background on Fast and Furious here.
In the Examiner article is this interesting comment, which I cannot vouch for:
I am former U.S. Customs and a “Whistle-blower” since 1995 publicly. The Mexican Cartels and Mexican Military are Compromised! Just like that! They escort drug shipments to the U.S. Border and even cross into the U.S. Sovereign territory in violation of the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo of 1848. Any violation of this treaty is considered an ACT OF WAR and demands a MILITARY RESPONSE. There are over 125 illegal incursions into the U.S. Territory yearly by Mexican Military and these facts are being covered up. Contact your local Congressmen and see if they are aware of it. They should be already. See also: www.customscorruption.com.
Here are some stats: http://

Again, I cannot vouch for “John Carman” but I can vouch for the diligent work Velvet Hammer at Ironic Surrealism does every day.
