-Lurid Crime Tales-
ICE deports MS-13 member wanted in El Salvador, according to DHS
[KENS5] Immigration officials deported a documented member of MS-13 to El Salvador Thursday more than a year after he was caught crossing the border in the Rio Grande Valley.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said 35-year-old Melvin Antonio Delgado is wanted by authorities in his home country for gang membership and illicit possession of drugs. He was removed aboard an ICE Air Operations charter flight without incident.

"The Delgado case shows how effective cooperation between U.S. and Salvadoran law enforcement authorities helps keep our communities safe from violent transnational gang members who try to find safe haven from their crimes in our country," said Daniel Bible, field office director for Enforcement and Removal Operations for ICE in San Antonio.

Immigration officials say they found Delgado near Hidalgo, Texas on Oct. 20, 2018 after he illegally crossed into the United States. He was convicted in a Texas federal court days later and sentenced to two days in prison. He was transferred to ICE custody on Oct. 27, 2018, and an immigration judge issued him a final order of removal a year later.

The Security Alliance for Fugitive Enforcement (SAFE) task force provided information that assisted in Delgado’s arrest.

#2  Dron,
If you had his ear, what would you recommend to OrangeMan regarding Afghanistan?
Posted by: Lex || 02/15/2020 20:14 Comments || Top||

#3  That's easy. I'd recommend a complete pull out. I think he understands too. The Afghans won't let you leave.

Much of the third world believes the US is obliged to spend its inordinate amount of moolah on them, while they stab each other to get at it. Another trillion dollars ? It'll stay the same grey, brown wasteland full of death at every corner, ass-raped little boys growing into retards with RPGs, and hopeful 'educated moderates' trying to superimpose western style democracy on an Asian society.

Not just me, the entire integrated defence network would advise that if they were honest. It would be in India's selfish interest of course if you remained and wasted yourselves there, maintaining a presence on Pak's shoulder too. Pak would like nothing better than for you to leave, for reasons of their own of course.

Caribbean-Latin America
Six Cartel Kidnappers Busted with Mexican Border City Victim in Trunk
[BREITBART] Mexican soldiers arrested six cartel button men who were in the process of moving a kidnapping victim stuffed in the trunk of a car. The rescue comes almost a week after authorities captured a leading commander with the Cartel Del Noreste faction of Los Zetas in the border city of Nuevo Laredo.

The rescue took place on Thursday morning in the Rio Bravo neighborhood south of Laredo, Texas.

According to information released by the Mexican Army, soldiers were patrolling when they spotted a suspicious vehicle containing the kidnapping victim. Details of the takedown were not released, however, the Army noted the arrests of six suspects and seized 27 makeshift road spikes. These items are commonly used to puncture the tires of pursuing police vehicles or cause traffic jams to cover escapes.

The rescue follows less than a week after the Mexican Army arrested a leading commander with the CDN-Los Zetas. Known as "El Takia," Pablo Cesar Guajardo Alvarez was in charge of CDN foot soldiers in Nuevo Laredo. He faces murder charges in connection with a deadly attack on five employees of the Tamaulipas Attorney General’s Office.

Europe
Germany busts 'terrorist organization' that planned attacks on refugees
[Jpost] German police detained 12 men on Friday suspected of setting up a far-right organization with the goal of carrying out attacks against politicians, asylum seekers and Moslems, the Federal Prosecutor's Office (GBA) said.

Prosecutors said four of the suspects had set up a "terrorist organization" in September 2019 and regularly met and contacted each other by phone and in online chart forums and chat groups. They had no immediate plan to carry out an attack.

The other eight men were detained on suspicion of supporting the organization with money and weapons, the GBA said.

The suspects wanted their attacks to create havoc and an atmosphere of fear that resembles a civil war, it added.

"The goal of the organization was to shake and eventually destroy the democratic system and social cohesion of the federal republic," the GBA said. "For the purpose of creating an conditions that resemble a civil war, attacks that were not yet concrete against politicians, asylum seekers and members of the Moslem faith were planned."

The German government last year launched a crackdown on right-wing political violence in response to a rise in hate crimes.

New measures approved after the killing of a pro-immigration politician and a deadly attack on a synagogue and kebab shop in Halle by an anti-Semitic gunman include tougher rules on gun ownership and stricter monitoring of hate speech online.

The government has said around 90% of the 1,800 incidents recorded against Jews last year were committed by individuals espousing far-right views.
Even though the local Jews say many verbal and physical attacks are committed by Moslems, so the question is whether the authorities are not recording those incidents, or whether they are deliberately mis-categorizing the miscreants.
Germany's domestic intelligence agency estimates there are around 24,100 "right wing Death Eaters" in Germany, about half of whom are potentially violent.

#1 
When a country will slowly squeeze the life out of its own people and feed it to the moslem dog, it's time to go rogue, go for the leadership. I can understand the angst of the far Right, whoever they are. I'll bet they can yet get along with jews. It's chancellor-for-life Merkel that is everybody's problem.

#2  A lot of the “far right” is neither far nor right — the Netherland’s Geert Wilders, for instance, is a plain vanilla democratic socialist except for his insistence post-9/11 that the demands of Muslim culture are incompatible with the Western ethos, and therefore those who will not accept that Muslims must first live according to Western laws cannot be allowed to live there. And a good portion of the European “right” admire the muscular self-defense of Israel’s Jews, and would like to team up with their own Jews to do the same. The rest of the European “right” loathe the Jews and want them gone, but the exact same can be said of the European left.

tl;dr: Left and right are no longer useful categories, especially those accused of being far right. Look at what a given person/group really is working for.

#3  Terrorists? No need to worry.

#4  What tw said. Very astute.

"Far right" is a bogeyman, a marketing/fund-raising tactic, a trope seized upon by opportunistic partisans and grifters like the SPLC founder, the corrupt mass marketing wizard.

Today, the terms "left" and "right" are all but meaningless.

There are only OTOH entrepreneurs/hucksters/Shitshow-mongers who signal virtue, and OTOH a tiny holdout of people committed to rational analysis, fair-mindedness, and liberal -- old-fashioned, classical liberal -- belief in free minds and free speech.

Israel-Palestine-Jordan
1 soldier, 4 Palestinians injured in West Bank protests
[IsraelTimes] Demonstrations across West Bank come amid soaring tensions following release of US peace plan last month.
All they have to do to get their own country and billions of dollars of American investments is demonstrate peaceful self rule, but they’d rather riot.
One Israeli soldier was lightly injured by a stone and four Paleostinians were hurt in a protest in the West Bank village of Budrus on Friday.

The soldier was treated at the scene northwest of Ramallah and then sent to a hospital, according to Hebrew media reports.

The condition of the Paleostinians was not immediately clear.

Protests were also reported in Ramallah, Nablus and near the southern West Bank city of Hebron. Troops fired tear gas at Paleostinians who threw rocks and set tires on fire.

No doubt a storm is rising above Idilb, been going on for at least a week. Seemed a strange asset to move into the region, though it would be an effective platform for that region. Started dinking around and if I did my work, not only can this thing reach Libya, it could be loaded with anti-ship and cruise missiles.

I dunno. Gives them some practice flying bomber sorties and suggests they *really* want to blow some stuff up and have it stay that way.
