Everyday there is a new headline about the violence and unrest at the US-Mexico border. Drug cartels feuding, local officials gunned down and of course illegal immigrants streaming into the United States.
Residents of Fort Hancock, Texas are under siege. The violence and danger has literally spilled over the Rio Grande and into their backyards.
Citizens are armed and ready, the default border security. The sheriff has a $250,000 hit on him and he says ” Oh, it’s War!”
The Federal Government has lost control of the border. In Juarez, Mexico it’s a state of war.
Despite Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano being quoted as saying:
” Everything that can be done to ensure this border remains safe and secure, to assist the government of Mexico in their efforts against the cartels and the cartel violence in Mexico [Ciudad Juarez being an example of that] and we’re going to make sure that those who come and seek to violate our laws by entering our country illegally or bringing contraband into our country or those who seek going south to carry illegal guns and cash south, that they are apprehended and prosecuted.”
It appears the Federal Government, the Border Patrol especially, has essentially abandoned the residents of Fort Hancock, Texas.

Mexico’s defense department is confirming that Ignacio ” Nacho ” Coronel Villareal, a capo in the Sinaloa drug cartel, was killed during a military raid in a suburb of Guadalajara, Mexico.
Coronel refused to be arrested and died in a gunfight with a unit of the Mexican army. One soldier was shot to death by ” Nacho ” before he, himself was killed.
Coronel was on the FBI’s most wanted list for cocaine and methamphetamine, charged with conspiracy to possess a controlled substance with intent to distribute and conspiracy to import a controlled substance.
There was a $5 Million USD reward by the US State Department and the FBI for information leading to Nacho Coronel’s capture.
More than 23,000 people have been murdered in Mexico since President Felipe Calderon declared war on Mexican drug cartels in December 2006.
Ciudad Juarez has become the world’s most dangerous city. A killing ground of unimaginable proportion, with over 5200 murders so far in 2010.
90% of the cocaine now enters the US from Mexico. 90% of weapons enter Mexico from the USA.
The drug trade betwen Mexico and the United States is an estimated $60 Billion USD business.

Chelsea Clinton is no longer the Raggedy Ann child we saw growing up. With her hair up and wearing a Vera Wang gown she has blossomed into a woman.
The interfaith marriage ceremony at Astor Courts in Rhinebeck New York featured both a Methodist minister for the bride, Clinton and a Jewish rabbi for Mezvinzky, the hedgefund investment banker groom.
The lavish wedding that in the mainstream media was ridiculously hyped as the Wedding of the Century was reported to have set back former President Bill Clinton a cool $3 million dollars. Pocket change for Bubba.
The Mezvinzky-Clinton wedding will never be mistaken for the Royal Marriage of Prince Charles and Lady Diana. Hope this one has a better ending though.
” Today, we watched with great pride and overwhelming emotion as Chelsea and Marc wed in a beautiful ceremony at Astor Courts, surrounded by family and their close friends.
