Mexican Cartel Spying on U.S. Cops in Plot to Identify, Murder Informants in Arizona

A Mexican transnational criminal group aligned with the Sinaloa Federation (Sinaloa Cartel) is performing a surveillance operation on U.S. soil against U.S. law enforcement personnel. The cartel is attempting to identify U.S. law enforcement agents’ confidential informants so that the sources can be murdered.

The operation is occurring in southern Arizona, according to a warning classified as law enforcement sensitive (Police Sensitive/Unclassified) that was issued by the FBI. The warning, known a situational report or bulletin, was issued on Friday, June 23, 2017. A highly trusted source working in the region provided the information to Breitbart Texas on the condition of anonymity and with the agreement that we would redact certain details in our public report.

This deadly plot is occurring in Douglas, Arizona, or surrounding areas by a special forces group of the Sinaloa Federation based out of Agua Prieta, Mexico. The cartel’s group, specifically a specialized surveillance team, is called “Grupo Delta.” The FBI-issued report names a specific individual as a known member of the Agua Prieta drug trafficking organization and it asserts that this individual deployed the cartel surveillance team into the U.S. for this effort. Breitbart Texas agreed to omit the name of the cartel operative in this report.

Though the FBI-issued situational report does not specify the name of the specific Mexico-based criminal group, Agua Prieta is controlled by a group known as Los Salazar which operates under the banner of the Sinaloa Federation; thereby making them part of the Sinaloa Cartel.

The New Banality of Evil

“His was a terrorism constructed out of the narcissism of small differences.” — Steven Malanga

Alexandria, Virginia shooter James T. Hodgkinson was certainly angry about the direction of the country, but his vision of America was prosaic and predictable—ripped from the pages of the Huffington Post. Branding himself a member of the “99 percent,” he advocated higher taxes on the rich, according to letters he sent to a local newspaper. He opposed the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, wanted Democrats to filibuster the nomination of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, and supported the proposed Presidential Accountability Act, which extends conflict-of-interest laws for federal officials to the president and vice president, who are currently exempt. In other words, his was not the religious fervor of the jihadist seeking a caliphate, nor did he envision the sweeping historical dialectic of Das Kapital. His ideas weren’t even as dramatic as the cultural revolution imagined by the 1960s’ Yippie manifesto. Yet Hodgkinson was apparently willing to kill for higher marginal tax rates, stricter conflict-of-interest laws, and Obamacare. His was a terrorism constructed out of the narcissism of small differences.

Donald Trump to Cuban Regime: Send Back Cop Killer Joanne Chesimard (Video)

On Friday President Donald Trump called on Cuba to turn over cop killer Joanne Chesimard.

Cop killer Assata Shakur, formerly known as Joanne Chesimard, murdered New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster in 1973 and then fled to Cuba.

Assata Shakur, a.k.a. Joanne Chesimard is a former(?) Black Panther and Black Liberation Army agitator and cop killer. She has been a fugitive from justice for nearly 40 years and openly thumbs her nose at her victim’s family while living in Cuba as a political asylee. In 1973, Chesimard shot and killed New Jersey state trooper Werner Foerster execution-style during a traffic stop. She is currently hiding from US authorities in Cuba.

Ramadan Rage: Muslim Who Ran Down Five Men with His Van Praised as ‘Good Family Man’ by Judge

A judge at Leicester Crown Court praised a van driver who deliberately mounted a pavement and ran down five men during Ramadan as “a good family man” who was behaving “completely out of character”.

According to a report in the Daily Mirror newspaper, 26-year-old Lugman Aslam, of Warren View, Leicester, had gotten into a physical altercation with the men after backing his van into one of them, during which he alleged he was racially abused.

Recorder (circuit judge) Justin Wigoder described how, following this incident, a vengeful Aslam returned to his van, mounted the pavement and ploughed through the group, in order to “get [his] own back”.

“I’ve seen it on CCTV and you deliberately mounted the pavement and drove straight at them and right through the middle of them at speed,” Wigoder said.

“Some were thrown to the side and three were struck by your vehicle front-on, with one going over the bonnet and hitting the windscreen.

“It’s quite remarkable that nobody was seriously hurt or killed and the only injuries complained of were bruises and scratches.

“One indication of the force of the collision was your windscreen was smashed – you claimed it had been hit by an animal when you got it repaired.”

Lawsuit filed against social media companies over Dallas ambush shooting

The lawsuit charges social media corporations with “providing material support to terrorist groups and profiting from the content those groups posts.”

A new lawsuit claims social media companies created a hostile atmosphere that led to a gunman shooting and killing five Dallas officers last July.

The suit alleges Facebook, Google and Twitter are sponsors of terrorism because they allow inflammatory posts and that they make money from the posts by the ads they attach to them.

The lawsuit aims to force social media sites to have strict content regulations, but legal experts say the case will be difficult to prove. Dallas attorney Nicole Knox, who is not a part of the lawsuit, said it seems unlikely the suit would be successful.

“It’s a tough sale from a moral standpoint that we’re allowing this to happen, but under the law I think it’s permitted,” Knox said.

ISIS posted a new YouTube video in early June this year of the July 7 ambush shootings using footage from a bystander’s cell phone in a parking garage showing officers under siege at Main Street and Lamar.

Three Texas Border City Cops Shot, 1 Injured, Suspect Dead

An armed murder suspect allegedly opened fire, shooting three Laredo, Texas, police officers and injuring a fourth. The suspect is reported to be dead.

Police were searching for 55-year-old Antonio Gerado Rodriguez in connection to the shooting death of his girlfriend, according to a report by KSAT ABC12 in San Antonio. The shootout between the suspect and the police happened at a Stripes convenience store. Police reports identified the murder victim as Reyna Gonzalez Zamora, 50.

Laredo Police Department Investigator Joe Baeza told Breitbart Texas the suspect was spotted by three officers involved in the search. Rodriguez opened fire on the officers with a hundgun. The officers returned fire.

Additional responding officers engaged the suspect and continued shooting until the suspect went down. Baeza confirmed three officers were shot and a fourth officer received an injury from flying glass during the shooting.

An unnamed source within the department with knowledge of the situation told Breitbart Texas that one officer had been shot in the face. That officer has been airlifted by helicopter to San Antonio where the officer will undergo surgery.

Baez said that officer is in serious condition.

The other three officers received non-life threatening wounds — one to the shoulder, one in the leg, and one in the hand the unnamed source stated.

‘There’s going to be a lot of dead gangsters’: Inside King County’s surging gang war

Police attribute a troubling increase in gang-related shootings from Seattle to South King County to warring Hispanic gangs, including some that previously got along. “I’m very concerned about this heating up in the summer months,” says Federal Way’s mayor.

Arturo Marcial-Alvarez’s face was covered with a blue bandanna and he had a stolen revolver in his waistband when he was intercepted by two King County sheriff’s detectives in February as he got off a Metro bus.

The detectives, who were also on the bus, noticed him reaching for his waist while glaring at another man who was stepping off the coach, court records say.

“Looks like we just missed some gang stuff,” one detective texted the other before they arrested the 19-year-old for carrying a concealed pistol, according to court records.

Whether the detectives thwarted a shooting by arresting Marcial-Alvarez will likely never be known. Two months after his release from jail, Marcial-Alvarez, who police called an “avowed” gang member, was fatally shot at a bus stop in Federal Way on April 11.

Police say he was a targeted victim of a war between rival Hispanic gangs that detectives trace to the January shooting death of Manuel Ortiz, 18, over the defacing of gang graffiti near his Burien apartment.

36 Killed in Month-Long Cartel War Near Texas

Raging violence continues to take hold of this border city as rival factions of the Gulf Cartel fight for control claimed 36 deaths–including a bystander and one police officer.

As Breitbart Texas reported, the violence began in late April, shortly after Mexican authorities hunted down and killed regional Gulf boss Juan Manuel “Toro” Loiza Salinas. The death of the ruthless cartel kingpin led to an immediate power vacuum as various factions fight for control of the city and surrounding smuggling routes.

The fight has led to convoys of gunmen driving around Reynosa hunting for rivals. Some of the shooters ride in vehicles with “M-42” spray-painted on the side, indicating former allegiance to Toro. As Breitbart Texas reported, the violence has also led to a spike in crime as cartel gunmen carry out daytime robberies at various establishments and against unsuspecting motorists.

Over the weekend, rival gunmen clashed three separate times, spreading fear among local residents. In one of the clashes, forces exchanged gunfire in the Lopez Portillo neighborhood where neighbors reported that four gunmen died in the clash.

Sweden: Men of Foreign Origin Responsible for 90 Per Cent of Shootings

Almost all murders and attempted murders in Sweden using firearms are carried out by people with foreign backgrounds, according to a new study.

According to research carried out by Dagens Nyheter, 90 out of the 100 offenders and suspected offenders examined by the liberal daily newspaper have at least one foreign-born parent, the vast majority having roots in the Middle East and North Africa.

In around half of the cases, the men were born in Sweden whilst others migrated to the country at a young age. The study looked at 53 convicted and 47 suspected perpetrators involved in shootings in public places which have taken place since 2013.

“The fact is that street gangs, and violence are phenomena that occur in some areas, and most of the people who live in these areas are of foreign descent,” said Amir Rostani, a sociologist at Stockholm University.

Around 80 per cent of the men have roots in the Middle East and North Africa, with offenders having roots in Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Turkey, Somalia, and Eritrea.

“This is well in line with a study I previously conducted, on members of criminal networks,” Amir Rostami told Dagens Nyheter.

The newspaper noted that whilst Sweden’s Crime Prevention Council (Brå), which is responsible for compiling official crime statistics, have released a number of reports on gun-related violence, none of these have looked at the background of perpetrators.
