Mexican governor steps aside over disappearances

Mexico: Mayor linked to deadly attack on students

Alleged: Mexican mayor ‘masterminded’ disappearance of 43 students

By Lindsey Bever October 23, 2014

The last time anyone saw the 43 college students abducted in southwestern Mexico, they were being crammed into patrol cars in Iguala, a town 125 miles from Mexico City. Mexico’s chief prosecutor said Wednesday the students, from a nearby teachers college, were captured last month by local cops and turned over to drug traffickers — after an order from the mayor.

They haven’t been seen since.

Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam said at a news conference Iguala Mayor Jose Luis Abarca ordered the students stopped to keep them from disrupting an event hosted by his wife, Maria de los Angeles Pineda. Local residents said she was planning to run for her husband’s mayoral seat this summer and there was bad blood between the students and mayor.

About a year ago, they trashed Abarca’s office in protest. They blamed him for the killing of a well-known leftist political figure, the Wall Street Journal reported. However, he has since denied any involvement.

On Sept. 26, they again traveled to Iguala to protest and raise money for their school. They were stopped by police, who opened fire on them, killing a total of six people. Others were allegedly handed over to a local drug gang, Guerreros Unidos, which was told they were members of a rival crew.

Carola Sole, AFP

Oct. 9, 2014

Mexico City (AFP) - Tens of thousands of people held protests in Mexico, joining tearful families of 43 missing students demanding their return amid fears a police-backed gang executed them.

Crowds on Wednesday gathered from Mexico City to the violence-wracked state of Guerrero, where the students disappeared, and as far south as Chiapas.

Parents of the victims traveled from Guerrero to head a march of thousands of people in Mexico City, tearfully holding up pictures of their sons, and signs reading "we want them back alive."

Mexico City, Oct 4 (EFE).- Mexico's government has accepted all the demands of student protesters at the National Polytechnic Institute, or IPN, a public university in this capital, in a bid to prevent the movement from spreading to other higher education institutions.

On Sept. 22, students at the IPN's Superior School of Engineering and Architecture halted activities to protest new internal regulations that they said lowered the institution's academic and professional level.

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.

State Sanctions Racist Violence Against African Americans in the U.S.

By Press TV and Abayomi Azikiwe,14 August 2014

The US state sanctions racist violence against the African American people and the White House has not made any effort to curtail it, a civil rights activist and journalist in Detroit says.

Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire, made the remarks in a phone interview with Press TV on Wednesday, commenting on the outbreak of unrest in the US state of Missouri over the fatal shooting of an unarmed Black teenager by a police officer.

“I believe very strongly that the protests and rebellions surrounding the police killing of young 18-year-old Michael Brown is a reflection of the growing anger against state-sanctioned racist violence inside the United States,” Azikiwe said.

Mexico Disarms Local Police in Missing Students' City | Global ...

Global Research, October 07, 2014

Mexican federal forces have disarmed the entire police department in the southern city of Iguala after its officers were accused of collaborating with a gang behind the recent disappearance of 43 students.

On Monday, the government’s new federal police unit took over security in Iguala, located some 200 kilometers (125 miles) south of the capital, Mexico City.

The federal unit was tasked with holding order in the city and helping search for the students who went missing last month after a deadly police shooting.

The deployment in the southern violence-stricken state of Guerrero came after President Enrique Pena Nieto vowed to establish justice and bring an end to corruption in the country.

Pena Nieto said he had dispatched the federal forces to Iguala to “find out what happened and apply the full extent of the law to those responsible.”The decision to disarm Iguala’s police corps came just days after 28 charred bodies were found in a mass grave on the outskirts of the city.

State prosecutor Inaky Blanco has said the recovered bodies probably belonged to the missing students. State officials also say it will take up to two weeks to receive the results of DNA tests to identify the corpses.

The students, all trainee teachers, went missing following a police attack on September 26 against a protest over teachers’ rights.

According to Blanco, state investigators have obtained video footage showing local police arresting a number of students during the clashes and taking them away.

Prosecutors said the Guerreros Unidos drug gang also participated in the police shooting that left six people dead and 25 others wounded.

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.

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.

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.

UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF STATE

The U.S. Department of State warns U.S. citizens about the risk of traveling to certain places in Mexico due to threats to safety and security posed by organized criminal groups in the country.  U.S. citizens have been the target of violent crimes, such as kidnapping, carjacking, and robbery by organized criminal groups 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 August 15, 2014, to update information about the security situation and to advise the public of additional restrictions on the travel of U.S. government (USG) personnel.

This Travel Warning replaces the Travel Warning for Mexico, issued August 15, 2014, 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 organized criminal groups 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. 

Nevertheless, U.S. travelers should be aware that the Mexican government has been engaged in an extensive effort to counter organized criminal groups that engage in narcotics trafficking and other unlawful activities throughout Mexico.  The groups themselves are engaged in a violent struggle to control drug trafficking routes and other criminal activity.  Crime and violence are serious problems and can occur anywhere.

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"

Reputed drug capo hid in plain sight in Mexico

One of Mexico's most-wanted drug lords was hiding in plain sight, eating at a seafood restaurant about 10 blocks away from the center of San Miguel de Allende, whose colonial square is a magnet for foreign residents and tourists.

For more than two months, Mexico did little to explain how a Mexican army patrol escaped practically unharmed from a gunfight that left 22 suspected criminals dead in a grain warehouse. This week, officials changed their story to say soldiers may have committed murder, but questions about the lop-sided confrontation remain.

A timeline of official statements about the slayings of 22 suspected gunmen by soldiers in rural Mexico:
Authorities were searching Monday for 57 students reported missing after weekend violence left at least six people dead and 25 wounded in the southern Mexican state of Guerrero.
Authorities in Mexico say 22 local police have been arrested following the deaths of six people in Guerrero state.
Six people were reported killed in a series of violent incidents in a town in Guerrero, a state in southwestern Mexico known for social unrest and drug violence.

Mexico accepts student demands in bid to avert spread of protests

Agencia EFE; October 4, 2014

Mexico City, Oct 4 (EFE).- Mexico's government has accepted all the demands of student protesters at the National Polytechnic Institute, or IPN, a public university in this capital, in a bid to prevent the movement from spreading to other higher education institutions.

On Sept. 22, students at the IPN's Superior School of Engineering and Architecture halted activities to protest new internal regulations that they said lowered the institution's academic and professional level.

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.

Tracing the missing

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The U.S. claimed, without evidence, but “with confidence” that Russia was involved. US intelligence officials said there is no evidence of Russia`s involvement, contradicting Obama and Kerry’s official statements.

Chaos reigns and spreads as enraged leaders in the US, Europe and their clients and allies pursue genocidal wars. Mercenary wars in Syria; Israel’s terror bombing on Gaza; proxy wars in the Ukraine, Pakistan, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Somalia.

The evidence confirms that MH17′s flight path on July 17th was NOT the usual approved flight path. Who was behind this changed flight path which spearheaded the aircraft into the war zone, resulting in 298 deaths?

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.

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

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"
