U.S. Military: More Counter-Narcotics Funding Will Help Stem Exodus of Children from Central America

By Bill Conroy - July 29, 2014

Critics Argue Drug-War Money is Part of the Problem, Not the Solution.

Some 58,000 migrant children, mostly Central Americans, have made the treacherous journey to the U.S. southern border alone over the past 10 months, but actions being considered by U.S. officials to combat the problem with more military and drug-war aid to their countries, critics warn, may worsen the violence that provokes this unprecedented exodus.

The number of unaccompanied children that have arrived at the U.S. border so far this fiscal year is up 106 percent from the same period a year earlier — with the total expected to reach 90,000 before Sept. 30, the end of the current fiscal year.


To put that latter number in perspective, it is nearly five times larger than the number of Border Patrol agents now stationed along the entire southern border.

Mexico’s economy

Jam mañana

A frustrating start to the year

May 24th 2014 | MEXICO CITY | From the print edition

SO FAR this year Mexico’s government has resembled one of the country’s many devotees of St Jude, patron saint of lost causes. It has doggedly stuck to a 3.9% 2014 growth forecast, even though its main export market, the United States, has been sluggish, and the twin pillars of its domestic economy—buying and building—have fared even worse.

On May 21st the central bank revised its growth prediction down to 2.3-3.3%, from 3-4% previously. The government was expected finally to follow suit on May 23rd, when first-quarter GDP figures were due to be released. Even so, officials are convinced that within months the benefits of its plans to modernise the economy will start to show up in the numbers.

Mexicans have good reason to be sceptical.

Snowden voted person of the year

For the second year in a row, a young American whistleblower alarmed at the unfettered and at times cynical deployment of power by the world's foremost superpower has been voted the Guardian's person of the year.

Edward Snowden, who leaked an estimated 200,000 files that exposed the extensive and intrusive nature of phone and internet surveillance and intelligence gathering by the US and its western allies, was the overwhelming choice of more than 2,000 people who voted.

The NSA whistleblower garnered 1,445 votes. In a distant second, from a list of 10 candidates chosen by Guardian writers and editors, came Marco Weber and Sini Saarela, the Greenpeace activists who spearheaded the oil rig protest over Russian Arctic drilling. They received 314 votes. Pope Francis gained 153 votes, narrowly ahead of blogger and anti-poverty campaigner Jack Monroe, who received 144.
Snowden's victory was as decisive as Chelsea Manning's a year earlier.

Targeting Mexico

Mexico's Secretariat of Public Security, which was folded into the new National Security Commission at the beginning of 2013, was responsible at the time for the country's police, counterterrorism, prison system and border police. Most of the agency's nearly 20,000 employees worked at its headquarters on Avenida Constituyentes, an important traffic artery in Mexico City. A large share of the Mexican security authorities under the auspices of the Secretariat are supervised from the offices there, making Avenida Constituyentes a one-stop shop for anyone seeking to learn more about the country's security apparatus.

US intelligence assets in Mexico reportedly tied to murdered DEA agent

SCM's Travel Advisory:


September 11 attacks on World Trade Center by Wikipedia

Mexicans are advised to exercise MAXIMUM CAUTION, monitor developments that might affect your safety in the United States because of Hate Crimes. The FBI reports that hate crimes against Latinos rose almost 40 percent between 2003 and 2006, and Hispanic activists say they are being targeted with threats and intimidation.

This is just a recent incident: STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- A rash of recent assaults on Mexican immigrants has heightened tensions in Port Richmond, already on edge following the savage beating of a 25-year-old baker earlier this (April 2010) month.

In addition, no matter what your nationality the US in under permanent risk of terrorism. Visitors could be caught up in attacks targeted at American, British, Canadian, Australian citizens, others. Terrorists may attack official or civilian targets. Crime rates are higher in the larger cities, such as New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. Many parts of the United States are subject to different natural hazards, including earthquakes, fires or wildfires, floods, extreme heat, hurricanes, landslides and debris flow (mudslides), thunderstorms and lightning, tornadoes, tsunamis, volcanoes (Hawaii, Alaska and Pacific Northwest), winter storms (freezing rain, heavy snow and blizzards) and extreme cold. Tourists are often targeted for petty crimes such as pick-pocketing and theft, particularly on public transport. It is recommended that before visiting your destination point, Google it and write NAME OF CITY TO BE VISITED, then "crime, areas to be avoided & gang activities" to determine your level of threat.  

Come Back Alive, a site dedicated to Dangerous Countries writes on quote: 

"There are more than 200 million guns in the possession of Americans. Most violent acts in the States are the result of robberies, domestic disputes and drug-related violence. Terrorist acts, ranging from the killing of abortionist doctors to the bombing of the World Trade Center, are highly publicized but not considered a real threat to travelers. The threat of robbery or violent crime in inner cities and some tourist areas is real and should be taken seriously. Travel in America is considered safe (by .. Americans), and danger is confined to random violence and inner cities. Those seeking adventure can find it in a New Orleans bar at five in the morning or strolling through South Central L.A. after midnight." .. 

TRAVEL ADVISORY: The Southern Poverty Law Center counted 932 active hate groups in the United States in 2009. Only organizations and their chapters known to be active during 2009 are included. More, HERE.

TRAVEL WARNING: Mexico

January 9, 2014

The U.S. Department of State warns U.S. citizens about the risk of traveling in Mexico due to threats to safety and security posed by Transnational Criminal Organizations (TCOs) in the country. U.S. citizens have been the target of violent crimes, such as kidnapping, carjacking, and robbery by TCOs in various Mexican states. For information on security conditions in specific regions of Mexico, which can vary, travelers should reference the state-by-state assessments further below. 

This Travel Warning replaces the Travel Warning for Mexico, issued July 12, 2013, to update information about the security situation and to advise the public of additional restrictions on the travel of U.S. government (USG) personnel. 

General Conditions: 

Millions of U.S. citizens safely visit Mexico each year for study, tourism, and business, including more than 150,000 who cross the border every day. The Mexican government dedicates substantial resources to protect visitors to major tourist destinations, and there is no evidence that Transnational Criminal Organizations (TCOs) have targeted U.S. visitors or residents based on their nationality. Resort areas and tourist destinations in Mexico generally do not see the levels of drug-related violence and crime that are reported in the border region or in areas along major trafficking routes.

The Naturalization Process and Current Trends in Immigration in the United States: By Gender, By Age and By Marital Status

In 2011, the total number of persons naturalizing was 694,193. The leading countries of birth of new citizens were Mexico (94,783), India (45,985), the Philippines (42,520), the People's Republic of China (32,864), and Colombia (22,693). The largest number of persons naturalizing lived in California (151,183), Florida (87,309), and New York (76,603).

Historical trends have shown that the average number of persons that are naturalized annually has increased from less than 120,000 during the 1950s and 1960s to 210,000 during the 1980s, to 500,000 during the 1990s, and to 680,000 between 2000 and 2009. Naturalizations rose sharply during the mid-1990s because of various factors that include: 1) the 2.7 million undocumented immigrants legalized under the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986 making them eligible for citizenship; 2) legislative efforts to restrict public benefits for non-citizens; and 3) the implementation of a mandatory program requiring replacement of permanent resident cards issued before 1977.

New "HOY NO CIRCULA" rules go into effect Tuesday, July 1, 2014‏

Here's an explanation of how the new program "hoy no circula" works, starting TUESDAY, July 1st

If you have any information that is different from this PLEASE let us know right away so we can send it out. Brand new vehicles that have the hologram 00 are able to drive for two years, the car will have to update the hologram  at the expiration date and be inspected . You have two months after the expiration date to renew the hologram (have the car inspected).

Hologram 0, if your vehicle does not pass the 00 you will be given the hologram 0.  You can still drive everyday of the month, but instead of the two years permit, the expiration is set for six months, then you will have to renew the hologram. For information on the dates of the renewal, the link of the government will be posted at the end of the mail.

Hologram 1, this hologram is usually for vehicles between 9 and 15 years of usage. the vehicles with the hologram number 1 will not be able to circulate two Saturdays a month and one day on midweek. (the Saturday depends on the license plate of the car, see the government link for more details) and one day on midweek that also depends on the license plate of the car.
And there will be the new hologram 2.

 

According to the news of El Universal vehicles with the hologram number 2 that are over 15 years in circulation will not be able to circulate any Saturday of the month and also one day midweek.

 

It seems that the government is willing to change the hologram 2 for the hologram 1 if the vehicles pass the regulation test. This regulation will start on Tuesday July 1st. of 2014.  For more details here is the link of the news. And here is the link for the government program "Hoy no circula"

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's trade mission to Mexico this week was officially billed as an opportunity to foster new business relationships between the United States' southern neighbor and his state. But it also gave the potential 2016 presidential contender an opportunity to bolster his foreign policy credentials. While many watched to see how the famously brash Republican would present himself on an international platform, the trip arguably left open more questions than it answered. Here's what we learned from Christie's travels:

U.S. Military: More Counter-Narcotics Funding Will Help Stem Exodus of Children from Central America

By Bill Conroy - July 29, 2014

Critics Argue Drug-War Money is Part of the Problem, Not the Solution.

Some 58,000 migrant children, mostly Central Americans, have made the treacherous journey to the U.S. southern border alone over the past 10 months, but actions being considered by U.S. officials to combat the problem with more military and drug-war aid to their countries, critics warn, may worsen the violence that provokes this unprecedented exodus.

The number of unaccompanied children that have arrived at the U.S. border so far this fiscal year is up 106 percent from the same period a year earlier — with the total expected to reach 90,000 before Sept. 30, the end of the current fiscal year.


To put that latter number in perspective, it is nearly five times larger than the number of Border Patrol agents now stationed along the entire southern border.

War From Above: Domestic Drones Patrolling the Skies of America

Global Research, January 02, 2014

Drone aircraft, which we first heard of as weapons of war used by the United States in foreign lands, are now poised for a full-scale invasion of the skies above the US itself. On December 30, 2013 the US Federal Aviation Administration announced its choices for drone testing in six states around the country — Alaska, Nevada, New York, North Dakota, Texas and Virginia.

These six states may in turn do their testing in more than one location, For example, according to the Anchorage Daily News, drone testing centered in Alaska at the University of Alaska in Fairbanks will be called “the ‘Pan-Pacific Unmanned Aircraft Systems Test Range Complex.’ It includes six flight ranges in Alaska, four in Hawaii and three in Oregon.” According to the Honolulu Star Advertiser “the Pohakuloa Training Area on Hawaii island, the Pacific Missile Range Facility on Kauai and even the island of Niihau have been included in discussions of places where the testing could occur.”

Mexico’s economy

Jam mañana

A frustrating start to the year

May 24th 2014 | MEXICO CITY | From the print edition

SO FAR this year Mexico’s government has resembled one of the country’s many devotees of St Jude, patron saint of lost causes. It has doggedly stuck to a 3.9% 2014 growth forecast, even though its main export market, the United States, has been sluggish, and the twin pillars of its domestic economy—buying and building—have fared even worse.

On May 21st the central bank revised its growth prediction down to 2.3-3.3%, from 3-4% previously. The government was expected finally to follow suit on May 23rd, when first-quarter GDP figures were due to be released. Even so, officials are convinced that within months the benefits of its plans to modernise the economy will start to show up in the numbers.

Mexicans have good reason to be sceptical.

Snowden voted person of the year
Edward Snowden

For the second year in a row, a young American whistleblower alarmed at the unfettered and at times cynical deployment of power by the world's foremost superpower has been voted the Guardian's person of the year.

Edward Snowden, who leaked an estimated 200,000 files that exposed the extensive and intrusive nature of phone and internet surveillance and intelligence gathering by the US and its western allies, was the overwhelming choice of more than 2,000 people who voted.

The NSA whistleblower garnered 1,445 votes. In a distant second, from a list of 10 candidates chosen by Guardian writers and editors, came Marco Weber and Sini Saarela, the Greenpeace activists who spearheaded the oil rig protest over Russian Arctic drilling. They received 314 votes. Pope Francis gained 153 votes, narrowly ahead of blogger and anti-poverty campaigner Jack Monroe, who received 144.
Snowden's victory was as decisive as Chelsea Manning's a year earlier.

Inside TAO: Documents Reveal Top NSA Hacking Unit

Targeting Mexico

Mexico's Secretariat of Public Security, which was folded into the new National Security Commission at the beginning of 2013, was responsible at the time for the country's police, counterterrorism, prison system and border police. Most of the agency's nearly 20,000 employees worked at its headquarters on Avenida Constituyentes, an important traffic artery in Mexico City. A large share of the Mexican security authorities under the auspices of the Secretariat are supervised from the offices there, making Avenida Constituyentes a one-stop shop for anyone seeking to learn more about the country's security apparatus.

US intelligence assets in Mexico reportedly tied to murdered DEA agent

SCM's Travel Advisory:


September 11 attacks on World Trade Center by Wikipedia

Mexicans are advised to exercise MAXIMUM CAUTION, monitor developments that might affect your safety in the United States because of Hate Crimes. The FBI reports that hate crimes against Latinos rose almost 40 percent between 2003 and 2006, and Hispanic activists say they are being targeted with threats and intimidation.

This is just a recent incident: STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- A rash of recent assaults on Mexican immigrants has heightened tensions in Port Richmond, already on edge following the savage beating of a 25-year-old baker earlier this (April 2010) month.

In addition, no matter what your nationality the US in under permanent risk of terrorism. Visitors could be caught up in attacks targeted at American, British, Canadian, Australian citizens, others. Terrorists may attack official or civilian targets. Crime rates are higher in the larger cities, such as New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. Many parts of the United States are subject to different natural hazards, including earthquakes, fires or wildfires, floods, extreme heat, hurricanes, landslides and debris flow (mudslides), thunderstorms and lightning, tornadoes, tsunamis, volcanoes (Hawaii, Alaska and Pacific Northwest), winter storms (freezing rain, heavy snow and blizzards) and extreme cold. Tourists are often targeted for petty crimes such as pick-pocketing and theft, particularly on public transport. It is recommended that before visiting your destination point, Google it and write NAME OF CITY TO BE VISITED, then "crime, areas to be avoided & gang activities" to determine your level of threat. 

Come Back Alive, a site dedicated to Dangerous Countries writes on quote: 

"There are more than 200 million guns in the possession of Americans. Most violent acts in the States are the result of robberies, domestic disputes and drug-related violence. Terrorist acts, ranging from the killing of abortionist doctors to the bombing of the World Trade Center, are highly publicized but not considered a real threat to travelers. The threat of robbery or violent crime in inner cities and some tourist areas is real and should be taken seriously. Travel in America is considered safe (by .. Americans), and danger is confined to random violence and inner cities. Those seeking adventure can find it in a New Orleans bar at five in the morning or strolling through South Central L.A. after midnight." .. 

TRAVEL ADVISORY: The Southern Poverty Law Center counted 932 active hate groups in the United States in 2009. Only organizations and their chapters known to be active during 2009 are included. More, HERE.

TRAVEL WARNING: Mexico

January 9, 2014

The U.S. Department of State warns U.S. citizens about the risk of traveling in Mexico due to threats to safety and security posed by Transnational Criminal Organizations (TCOs) in the country. U.S. citizens have been the target of violent crimes, such as kidnapping, carjacking, and robbery by TCOs in various Mexican states. For information on security conditions in specific regions of Mexico, which can vary, travelers should reference the state-by-state assessments further below.

This Travel Warning replaces the Travel Warning for Mexico, issued July 12, 2013, to update information about the security situation and to advise the public of additional restrictions on the travel of U.S. government (USG) personnel.

General Conditions:

Millions of U.S. citizens safely visit Mexico each year for study, tourism, and business, including more than 150,000 who cross the border every day. The Mexican government dedicates substantial resources to protect visitors to major tourist destinations, and there is no evidence that Transnational Criminal Organizations (TCOs) have targeted U.S. visitors or residents based on their nationality. Resort areas and tourist destinations in Mexico generally do not see the levels of drug-related violence and crime that are reported in the border region or in areas along major trafficking routes.

The Naturalization Process and Current Trends in Immigration in the United States: By Gender, By Age and By Marital Status

In 2011, the total number of persons naturalizing was 694,193. The leading countries of birth of new citizens were Mexico (94,783), India (45,985), the Philippines (42,520), the People's Republic of China (32,864), and Colombia (22,693). The largest number of persons naturalizing lived in California (151,183), Florida (87,309), and New York (76,603).

Historical trends have shown that the average number of persons that are naturalized annually has increased from less than 120,000 during the 1950s and 1960s to 210,000 during the 1980s, to 500,000 during the 1990s, and to 680,000 between 2000 and 2009. Naturalizations rose sharply during the mid-1990s because of various factors that include: 1) the 2.7 million undocumented immigrants legalized under the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986 making them eligible for citizenship; 2) legislative efforts to restrict public benefits for non-citizens; and 3) the implementation of a mandatory program requiring replacement of permanent resident cards issued before 1977.

New "HOY NO CIRCULA" rules go into effect Tuesday, July 1, 2014‏

Here's an explanation of how the new program "hoy no circula" works, starting TUESDAY, July 1st

If you have any information that is different from this PLEASE let us know right away so we can send it out. Brand new vehicles that have the hologram 00 are able to drive for two years, the car will have to update the hologram  at the expiration date and be inspected . You have two months after the expiration date to renew the hologram (have the car inspected).

Hologram 0, if your vehicle does not pass the 00 you will be given the hologram 0.  You can still drive everyday of the month, but instead of the two years permit, the expiration is set for six months, then you will have to renew the hologram. For information on the dates of the renewal, the link of the government will be posted at the end of the mail.

Hologram 1, this hologram is usually for vehicles between 9 and 15 years of usage. the vehicles with the hologram number 1 will not be able to circulate two Saturdays a month and one day on midweek. (the Saturday depends on the license plate of the car, see the government link for more details) and one day on midweek that also depends on the license plate of the car.
And there will be the new hologram 2.

According to the news of El Universal vehicles with the hologram number 2 that are over 15 years in circulation will not be able to circulate any Saturday of the month and also one day midweek.

It seems that the government is willing to change the hologram 2 for the hologram 1 if the vehicles pass the regulation test. This regulation will start on Tuesday July 1st. of 2014.  For more details here is the link of the news. And here is the link for the government program "Hoy no circula"

Possibly 30 Years for Canadian Narco with ties to Sinaloa Cartel and the Mafia

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

By Chivís Martínez

Canadian Drug Kingpin,

Jimmy Cournoyer, with Ties to the Rizutto and Bonanno Crime Families, the Hells Angels and the Mexican Sinaloa Cartel Plead Guilty in 2013 to Narcotics Trafficking Crimes Carrying Sentence of 20 Years to Life and $1 Billion in Forfeiture.

He will discover his fate on August 20th when his sentence will be handed down.
However, U.S. feds are now seeking a 30 year sentence, arguing that a lighter sentence would amount to little incarceration time for Cournoyer, due to the fact he has elected to spend his sentence in Canada. Canada has a very liberal probation system that would drastically cut actual time spent behind bars.
Pointing out that Cournoyer "had a cadre of high-priced lawyers in Canada and the United States working to intimidate and threaten underlings into not cooperating with authorities. Various lawyers helped monitor several criminal cases related to Jimmy Cournoyer's massive cross-border drug trafficking network, probing for tips about investigations, warning co-conspirators against testifying and even offering 'bribes,' pay-offs and 'implied threats of harm to themselves or members of their families," say prosecutors.

Victims of Mexico’s drug war

Tracing the missing

Many thousands disappeared in Mexico’s drug war. The government should do more to find them

Mexico’s economy

Jam mañana

A frustrating start to the year

May 24th 2014 | MEXICO CITY | From the print edition

SO FAR this year Mexico’s government has resembled one of the country’s many devotees of St Jude, patron saint of lost causes. It has doggedly stuck to a 3.9% 2014 growth forecast, even though its main export market, the United States, has been sluggish, and the twin pillars of its domestic economy—buying and building—have fared even worse.

On May 21st the central bank revised its growth prediction down to 2.3-3.3%, from 3-4% previously. The government was expected finally to follow suit on May 23rd, when first-quarter GDP figures were due to be released. Even so, officials are convinced that within months the benefits of its plans to modernise the economy will start to show up in the numbers.

Mexicans have good reason to be sceptical.

Snowden voted person of the year

Edward Snowden

For the second year in a row, a young American whistleblower alarmed at the unfettered and at times cynical deployment of power by the world's foremost superpower has been voted the Guardian's person of the year.

Edward Snowden, who leaked an estimated 200,000 files that exposed the extensive and intrusive nature of phone and internet surveillance and intelligence gathering by the US and its western allies, was the overwhelming choice of more than 2,000 people who voted.

The NSA whistleblower garnered 1,445 votes. In a distant second, from a list of 10 candidates chosen by Guardian writers and editors, came Marco Weber and Sini Saarela, the Greenpeace activists who spearheaded the oil rig protest over Russian Arctic drilling. They received 314 votes. Pope Francis gained 153 votes, narrowly ahead of blogger and anti-poverty campaigner Jack Monroe, who received 144.
Snowden's victory was as decisive as Chelsea Manning's a year earlier.

Most of the agency's nearly 20,000 employees worked at its headquarters on Avenida Constituyentes, an important traffic artery in Mexico City. A large share of the Mexican security authorities under the auspices of the Secretariat are supervised from the offices there, making Avenida Constituyentes a one-stop shop for anyone seeking to learn more about the country's security apparatus.

SCM's Travel Advisory:


September 11 attacks on World Trade Center by Wikipedia

Mexicans are advised to exercise MAXIMUM CAUTION, monitor developments that might affect your safety in the United States because of Hate Crimes. The FBI reports that hate crimes against Latinos rose almost 40 percent between 2003 and 2006, and Hispanic activists say they are being targeted with threats and intimidation.

This is just a recent incident: STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- A rash of recent assaults on Mexican immigrants has heightened tensions in Port Richmond, already on edge following the savage beating of a 25-year-old baker earlier this (April 2010) month.

In addition, no matter what your nationality the US in under permanent risk of terrorism. Visitors could be caught up in attacks targeted at American, British, Canadian, Australian citizens, others. Terrorists may attack official or civilian targets. Crime rates are higher in the larger cities, such as New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. Many parts of the United States are subject to different natural hazards, including earthquakes, fires or wildfires, floods, extreme heat, hurricanes, landslides and debris flow (mudslides), thunderstorms and lightning, tornadoes, tsunamis, volcanoes (Hawaii, Alaska and Pacific Northwest), winter storms (freezing rain, heavy snow and blizzards) and extreme cold. Tourists are often targeted for petty crimes such as pick-pocketing and theft, particularly on public transport. It is recommended that before visiting your destination point, Google it and write NAME OF CITY TO BE VISITED, then "crime, areas to be avoided & gang activities" to determine your level of threat. 

Come Back Alive, a site dedicated to Dangerous Countries writes on quote: 

"There are more than 200 million guns in the possession of Americans. Most violent acts in the States are the result of robberies, domestic disputes and drug-related violence. Terrorist acts, ranging from the killing of abortionist doctors to the bombing of the World Trade Center, are highly publicized but not considered a real threat to travelers. The threat of robbery or violent crime in inner cities and some tourist areas is real and should be taken seriously. Travel in America is considered safe (by .. Americans), and danger is confined to random violence and inner cities. Those seeking adventure can find it in a New Orleans bar at five in the morning or strolling through South Central L.A. after midnight." .. 

TRAVEL ADVISORY: The Southern Poverty Law Center counted 932 active hate groups in the United States in 2009. Only organizations and their chapters known to be active during 2009 are included. More, HERE.

TRAVEL WARNING: Mexico

January 9, 2014

The U.S. Department of State warns U.S. citizens about the risk of traveling in Mexico due to threats to safety and security posed by Transnational Criminal Organizations (TCOs) in the country. U.S. citizens have been the target of violent crimes, such as kidnapping, carjacking, and robbery by TCOs in various Mexican states. For information on security conditions in specific regions of Mexico, which can vary, travelers should reference the state-by-state assessments further below.

This Travel Warning replaces the Travel Warning for Mexico, issued July 12, 2013, to update information about the security situation and to advise the public of additional restrictions on the travel of U.S. government (USG) personnel.

General Conditions:

Millions of U.S. citizens safely visit Mexico each year for study, tourism, and business, including more than 150,000 who cross the border every day. The Mexican government dedicates substantial resources to protect visitors to major tourist destinations, and there is no evidence that Transnational Criminal Organizations (TCOs) have targeted U.S. visitors or residents based on their nationality. Resort areas and tourist destinations in Mexico generally do not see the levels of drug-related violence and crime that are reported in the border region or in areas along major trafficking routes.

The Naturalization Process and Current Trends in Immigration in the United States: By Gender, By Age and By Marital Status

In 2011, the total number of persons naturalizing was 694,193. The leading countries of birth of new citizens were Mexico (94,783), India (45,985), the Philippines (42,520), the People's Republic of China (32,864), and Colombia (22,693). The largest number of persons naturalizing lived in California (151,183), Florida (87,309), and New York (76,603).

Historical trends have shown that the average number of persons that are naturalized annually has increased from less than 120,000 during the 1950s and 1960s to 210,000 during the 1980s, to 500,000 during the 1990s, and to 680,000 between 2000 and 2009. Naturalizations rose sharply during the mid-1990s because of various factors that include: 1) the 2.7 million undocumented immigrants legalized under the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986 making them eligible for citizenship; 2) legislative efforts to restrict public benefits for non-citizens; and 3) the implementation of a mandatory program requiring replacement of permanent resident cards issued before 1977.

New "hoy no circula" rules go into effect Tuesday, July 1, 2014‏

Here's an explanation of how the new program "hoy no circula" works, starting TUESDAY, July 1st

If you have any information that is different from this PLEASE let us know right away so we can send it out. Brand new vehicles that have the hologram 00 are able to drive for two years, the car will have to update the hologram  at the expiration date and be inspected . You have two months after the expiration date to renew the hologram (have the car inspected).
Hologram 0, if your vehicle does not pass the 00 you will be given the hologram 0.  You can still drive everyday of the month, but instead of the two years permit, the expiration is set for six months, then you will have to renew the hologram. For information on the dates of the renewal, the link of the government will be posted at the end of the mail.
Hologram 1, this hologram is usually for vehicles between 9 and 15 years of usage. the vehicles with the hologram number 1 will not be able to circulate two Saturdays a month and one day on midweek. (the Saturday depends on the license plate of the car, see the government link for more details) and one day on midweek that also depends on the license plate of the car.

And there will be the new hologram 2.

According to the news of El Universal vehicles with the hologram number 2 that are over 15 years in circulation will not be able to circulate any Saturday of the month and also one day midweek.

It seems that the government is willing to change the hologram 2 for the hologram 1 if the vehicles pass the regulation test. This regulation will start on Tuesday July 1st. of 2014.  For more details here is the link of the news. And here is the link for the government program "Hoy no circula"

In disappearing Mexican jungle, it’s tribes vs. biologists

Biologist Alicia Barceinas and three scarlet macaw parrots at the research station in Chajul, Mexico. (Joshua Partlow/The Washington Post)

CHAJUL, Mexico — The esteemed biologist awoke in her jungle dorm to face a midnight apparition from an almost forgotten past.

Three men had traveled by boat up the murky Lacandon River, carrying guns and wearing the black balaclavas made famous two decades ago in a peasant rebellion born in this same rain forest. They broke through the mosquito screen into a sitting room hung with posters of dolphins and scarlet macaws. Shining a flashlight in her face, they informed Julia Carabias, a former Mexican environment secretary, that they belonged to the Zapatista Army of National Liberation and were taking her to meet their leader.

Three of her students were also sleeping at the solar-powered research station inside the Montes Azules biological reserve. Forced to the floor at gunpoint, they listened as Carabias was dragged off.

If 5 months ago (before the vanishing of MH 370) you had contemplated the likelihood that the next 2 major airline disasters to receive massive global coverage would each involve Malaysia Airlines, you would have been justified in concluding that the likelihood was very low indeed.

russianato

Almost immediately after the news began to spread that a Malaysian Airlines plane was shot down over Ukraine, Western media and politicians blamed Russia claiming that President Putin should be directly responsible, despite complete lack of evidence

ukrainemap
The Spanish air controller intimates that the order to down the aircraft came from the Ministry of the Interior and not from the Military. The MH17 flight was escorted away from its flight path by Ukrainian fighter jets minutes before it was downed. The presence of the Ukraine fighter jets was confirmed by eyewitness reports in the Donetsk region.

Cuba Develops Four Cancer Vaccines, Ignored by the Media

Global Research, July 07, 2014
cuba-cancer-cimavax-vaccine

The fact that Cuba has already developed four cancer vaccines undoubtedly is big news for humanity if you bear in mind that according to the World Health Organization nearly 8 million people die from that disease every year. However, the monopoly media have completely ignored this reality.

In 2012, Cuba patented the first therapeutic vaccine in the world against advanced lung cancer, called CIMAVAX-EGF. In January 2013, the island announced the second cancer vaccine, known as Racotumomab.

Clinical tests, carried out in 86 nations, revealed that though these vaccines do not cure the disease, they do reduce the tumors thus improving the quality and expectancy of life of the patients.

Global Research, July 04, 2014

BBC economics editor Robert Peston warns that Google’s implementation of the controversial “right to be forgotten” ruling is working to “suppress legitimate journalism” after one of his articles about Merrill Lynch boss Stan O’Neal was scrubbed from the search engine.

A recent ruling in the European Court of Justice mandated that Google must delete “inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant” data when it receives a request to do so, which could open the floodgates for powerful individuals, corporations and institutions to hide past evidence of wrongdoing in a chilling throwback to George Orwell’s “memory hole.”

Peston complains about how Google notified the BBC that one of his 2007 articles about former Merrill Lynch boss Stan O’Neal’s role in the financial collapse had been deleted from search results for Google users in Europe.

Peston questioned how the article represented “inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant” information, stating,

“There is an argument that in removing the blog, Google is confirming the fears of many in the industry that the “right to be forgotten” will be abused to curb freedom of expression and to suppress legitimate journalism that is in the public interest.”

Many thousands disappeared in Mexico’s drug war. The government should do more to find them

Mexico’s economy

Jam mañana

A frustrating start to the year

May 24th 2014 | MEXICO CITY | From the print edition

SO FAR this year Mexico’s government has resembled one of the country’s many devotees of St Jude, patron saint of lost causes. It has doggedly stuck to a 3.9% 2014 growth forecast, even though its main export market, the United States, has been sluggish, and the twin pillars of its domestic economy—buying and building—have fared even worse.

On May 21st the central bank revised its growth prediction down to 2.3-3.3%, from 3-4% previously. The government was expected finally to follow suit on May 23rd, when first-quarter GDP figures were due to be released. Even so, officials are convinced that within months the benefits of its plans to modernise the economy will start to show up in the numbers.

Mexicans have good reason to be sceptical.

The Guardian
Snowden voted person of the year

For the second year in a row, a young American whistleblower alarmed at the unfettered and at times cynical deployment of power by the world's foremost superpower has been voted the Guardian's person of the year.

Edward Snowden, who leaked an estimated 200,000 files that exposed the extensive and intrusive nature of phone and internet surveillance and intelligence gathering by the US and its western allies, was the overwhelming choice of more than 2,000 people who voted.

The NSA whistleblower garnered 1,445 votes. In a distant second, from a list of 10 candidates chosen by Guardian writers and editors, came Marco Weber and Sini Saarela, the Greenpeace activists who spearheaded the oil rig protest over Russian Arctic drilling. They received 314 votes. Pope Francis gained 153 votes, narrowly ahead of blogger and anti-poverty campaigner Jack Monroe, who received 144.
Snowden's victory was as decisive as Chelsea Manning's a year earlier.

Mexico's Secretariat of Public Security, which was folded into the new National Security Commission at the beginning of 2013, was responsible at the time for the country's police, counterterrorism, prison system and border police. Most of the agency's nearly 20,000 employees worked at its headquarters on Avenida Constituyentes, an important traffic artery in Mexico City. A large share of the Mexican security authorities under the auspices of the Secretariat are supervised from the offices there, making Avenida Constituyentes a one-stop shop for anyone seeking to learn more about the country's security apparatus.

September 11 attacks on World Trade Center by Wikipedia

Mexicans are advised to exercise MAXIMUM CAUTION, monitor developments that might affect your safety in the United States because of Hate Crimes. The FBI reports that hate crimes against Latinos rose almost 40 percent between 2003 and 2006, and Hispanic activists say they are being targeted with threats and intimidation.

This is just a recent incident: STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- A rash of recent assaults on Mexican immigrants has heightened tensions in Port Richmond, already on edge following the savage beating of a 25-year-old baker earlier this (April 2010) month.

In addition, no matter what your nationality the US in under permanent risk of terrorism. Visitors could be caught up in attacks targeted at American, British, Canadian, Australian citizens, others. Terrorists may attack official or civilian targets. Crime rates are higher in the larger cities, such as New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. Many parts of the United States are subject to different natural hazards, including earthquakes, fires or wildfires, floods, extreme heat, hurricanes, landslides and debris flow (mudslides), thunderstorms and lightning, tornadoes, tsunamis, volcanoes (Hawaii, Alaska and Pacific Northwest), winter storms (freezing rain, heavy snow and blizzards) and extreme cold. Tourists are often targeted for petty crimes such as pick-pocketing and theft, particularly on public transport. It is recommended that before visiting your destination point, Google it and write NAME OF CITY TO BE VISITED, then "crime, areas to be avoided & gang activities" to determine your level of threat. 

Come Back Alive, a site dedicated to Dangerous Countries writes on quote: 

"There are more than 200 million guns in the possession of Americans. Most violent acts in the States are the result of robberies, domestic disputes and drug-related violence. Terrorist acts, ranging from the killing of abortionist doctors to the bombing of the World Trade Center, are highly publicized but not considered a real threat to travelers. The threat of robbery or violent crime in inner cities and some tourist areas is real and should be taken seriously. Travel in America is considered safe (by .. Americans), and danger is confined to random violence and inner cities. Those seeking adventure can find it in a New Orleans bar at five in the morning or strolling through South Central L.A. after midnight." .. 

TRAVEL ADVISORY: The Southern Poverty Law Center counted 932 active hate groups in the United States in 2009. Only organizations and their chapters known to be active during 2009 are included. More, HERE.

TRAVEL WARNING: Mexico

January 9, 2014

The U.S. Department of State warns U.S. citizens about the risk of traveling in Mexico due to threats to safety and security posed by Transnational Criminal Organizations (TCOs) in the country. U.S. citizens have been the target of violent crimes, such as kidnapping, carjacking, and robbery by TCOs in various Mexican states. For information on security conditions in specific regions of Mexico, which can vary, travelers should reference the state-by-state assessments further below.

This Travel Warning replaces the Travel Warning for Mexico, issued July 12, 2013, to update information about the security situation and to advise the public of additional restrictions on the travel of U.S. government (USG) personnel.

General Conditions:

Millions of U.S. citizens safely visit Mexico each year for study, tourism, and business, including more than 150,000 who cross the border every day. The Mexican government dedicates substantial resources to protect visitors to major tourist destinations, and there is no evidence that Transnational Criminal Organizations (TCOs) have targeted U.S. visitors or residents based on their nationality. Resort areas and tourist destinations in Mexico generally do not see the levels of drug-related violence and crime that are reported in the border region or in areas along major trafficking routes.

The Naturalization Process and Current Trends in Immigration in the United States: By Gender, By Age and By Marital Status

In 2011, the total number of persons naturalizing was 694,193. The leading countries of birth of new citizens were Mexico (94,783), India (45,985), the Philippines (42,520), the People's Republic of China (32,864), and Colombia (22,693). The largest number of persons naturalizing lived in California (151,183), Florida (87,309), and New York (76,603).

Historical trends have shown that the average number of persons that are naturalized annually has increased from less than 120,000 during the 1950s and 1960s to 210,000 during the 1980s, to 500,000 during the 1990s, and to 680,000 between 2000 and 2009. Naturalizations rose sharply during the mid-1990s because of various factors that include: 1) the 2.7 million undocumented immigrants legalized under the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986 making them eligible for citizenship; 2) legislative efforts to restrict public benefits for non-citizens; and 3) the implementation of a mandatory program requiring replacement of permanent resident cards issued before 1977.

New "hoy no circula" rules go into effect Tuesday, July 1, 2014‏

Here's an explanation of how the new program "hoy no circula" works, starting TUESDAY, July 1st

If you have any information that is different from this PLEASE let us know right away so we can send it out. Brand new vehicles that have the hologram 00 are able to drive for two years, the car will have to update the hologram  at the expiration date and be inspected . You have two months after the expiration date to renew the hologram (have the car inspected).
Hologram 0, if your vehicle does not pass the 00 you will be given the hologram 0.  You can still drive everyday of the month, but instead of the two years permit, the expiration is set for six months, then you will have to renew the hologram. For information on the dates of the renewal, the link of the government will be posted at the end of the mail.

Hologram 1, this hologram is usually for vehicles between 9 and 15 years of usage. the vehicles with the hologram number 1 will not be able to circulate two Saturdays a month and one day on midweek. (the Saturday depends on the license plate of the car, see the government link for more details) and one day on midweek that also depends on the license plate of the car.

And there will be the new hologram 2.

According to the news of El Universal vehicles with the hologram number 2 that are over 15 years in circulation will not be able to circulate any Saturday of the month and also one day midweek.

It seems that the government is willing to change the hologram 2 for the hologram 1 if the vehicles pass the regulation test. This regulation will start on Tuesday July 1st. of 2014.  For more details here is the link of the news. And here is the link for the government program "Hoy no circula"

First ladies are regal, maternal and patriotic. Should they be sexy, too?

Sex can sell everything from cars to yogurt, but the biggest test may be whether it can sell the idea of a first lady as just another woman — one who is not beholden to outdated or outsized expectations about the cultural traditions she should represent, the message she should deliver from her bully pulpit or how much of her own person she’s allowed to be. That question is the simmering subtext of  a new profile of the first lady of Mexico, Angelica Rivera de Peña.

Rivera appears on the July cover of Marie Claire — the Mexico and Latin America edition — looking unabashedly sexy, alongside her daughter Sofia Castro, who smolders as well.

Mother and daughter are dressed in complementary styles — ruffled white blouses and two different riffs on a tuxedo jacket. The first lady wears leggings and her daughter wears an extremely abbreviated skirt. In each case, the aesthetic is all about legs — long, long legs. On the inside pages, Rivera is pictured wearing a swashbuckling leather trenchcoat, a strapless evening gown that dips low in the back and a liquid skirt that slips open to reveal her legs.

From the vantage point of the United States, where some folks still disapprovingly hyperventilate over bare arms in the East Wing, the attire is startling

Mexico's national soccer coach Miguel Herrera just can't keep his joy bottled up, and his enthusiasm has made him one of the most entertaining and popular figures of the World Cup and an Internet sensation worldwide.

The Netherlands will put its perfect record on the line in the second round of the World Cup on Sunday, taking on a Mexico side aiming to reach the quarterfinals for the first time since hosting the 1986 tournament.

No fear for Mexico against Netherlands

Mexico coach Miguel Herrera will make one change to his starting lineup to face the Netherlands in the World Cup second round - and says his team is "ready to make history" on Sunday.

Louis van Gaal is preparing his Netherlands squad to face two significant challenges in its World Cup Round of 16 match in this steamy northern Brazilian city - Mexico and the weather.

DISPATCH | An ex-cartel member said he recorded himself in a tell-all video that he planned to send to the DEA in the event of his murder. Last week, that day came for him, his wife and three kids.

MEXICO CITY — We saw his kids first and broke out laughing. You couldn’t look at their angelic, chubby, giggling faces without smiling. They could barely see over the dashboard of the red truck they were driving.

And yet these two boys, José Santiago Perez, 16, and Bernabe Perez, 14, were the emissaries the ex-drug cartel henchman had sent to fetch us.

Dominic Bracco, a photographer, and I met the kids last month in a dirt lot outside a corral in the Mexican state of Michoacan. We were there to write about a citizen militia that formed to drive out a drug gang but was turning into something more sinister.

Their father, José Santiago Valencia Sandoval, had experienced both sides of this conflict. He had worked for the Knights Templar cartel, then defected to join the militia when it started in the little hillside town of Tepalcatepec more than a year ago. He agreed to meet.

Wave of Central American migrants strains Border Patrol, reducing number of drug busts

MCALLEN, Tex. — With the Border Patrol distracted by a surge of Central American migrants crossing into south Texas, Mexican cartels have had an easier time smuggling illegal drugs across the border, according to agents and state officials here.

The arrival of large groups of women and children on the U.S. side of the Rio Grande is pulling agents away from their patrol stations elsewhere along the border, creating gaps in coverage that the traffickers can exploit, according to Chris Cabrera, the Border Patrol union representative here.

The smugglers wait on the southern banks of the Rio Grande as migrant groups as large as 250 wade across at dusk and turn themselves in to the Border Patrol, he said. Then groups of single men proceed to cross under cover of darkness, hoping to slip through.

“After that they send over the dope,” Cabrera said, with U.S. officers too busy to stop it.

This article is a joint-publication of NACLA and Foreign Policy in Focus.

It’s the biggest sporting event in the world. Fans from virtually every place on Earth don jerseys, scarves, and caps and head to the nearest bar to chug an ice-cold beer while passionately yelling and cheering their team on—hopefully to victory.

The World Cup only happens every four years, and for most of us, there’s nothing like it.

In a test of stamina, national pride and strength, 32 teams representing 32 different countries have descended upon Brazil. The first match, between host country Brazil and Croatia, took place at Arena Corinthians in Sao Paulo. The crowd there was lively, energized by a type of spirit that can only be felt at the World Cup.

What all those revelers and die-hard soccer fans may not have realized is that the very city that hosted the iconic opening match was one of the most affected by forced evictions, with thousands of poor residents shunted aside to make way for stadiums that may never be used again. These evictions in Sao Paulo and across the country have left thousands of people homeless; the compensation for losing your home is a pittance that doesn’t begin to cover the cost of housing in a country where real estate prices are skyrocketing.

“World Cup For Whom?” reads a sign painted on the street in Sao Paulo.

Fallujah: US Marines – Further Allegations of War Crimes Surface

Global Research, June 22, 2014
This article was published on January 24, 2014 and explains a very important aspect of the current situation in Iraq. As reported June 21, 2014 in Washington Escalates Intervention in Region-Wide Middle East War, the Pentagon: "is negotiating rules of engagement that the regime in Baghdad rejected two-and-a-half years ago, before the final pullout of the American military.  Key among these provisions, according to Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby, is blanket immunity from Iraqi or international law relating to the slaying of Iraqi civilians or other war crimes.”

“The United States Marine Corps … its hallowed rituals, and its unbending code of honor …”  (Thomas E. Ricks; Making the Corps, 1997.)

As the US-unleashed Grim Reaper continues to cull Iraqis in ever rising numbers, this month of the twenty third anniversary of the 1991 US led onslaught on Iraq and just weeks away from the eleventh woeful wake for the 2003 illegal invasion, yet another atrocity in a litany of those under the illegal US-UK occupation has come to light.

Fallujah, now under attack from US installed tyrant Nuri al Maliki’s sectarian militia armed with US supplied weapons, with the US also: “ … looking to provide additional shipments of Hellfire missiles to Iraq … as well as ten Scan Eagle drones and forty eight Raven drones” (Guardian, 7th January 2014) now, another previously unreported US war crime of the myriad heaped on the city in 2004, also returns to haunt them.

The Americans invaded, chillingly: “house to house, room to room”, raining death and destruction on the proud, ancient “City of Mosques.”
