El Chapo, Donald Trump’s latest enemy

Written By | Jul 14, 2015

WASHINGTON, July 14, 2015 – Whether its Islamo-fascist ISIS, rear-end obsessed Kim Kardashian, or self-absorbed rock stars with little to say, social media is – as the late comedian Steve Allen said of television – “the theater of the mindless.”

But the recent escape from a “high security” Mexican prison by the Sinaloa Cartel’s ruthless drug lord, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, is lighting up the Twittersphere in new and interesting ways.

Shortly after El Chapo’s dramatic jail break, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump tweeted the following:

  • “El Chapo and the Mexican drug cartels use the border unimpeded like it was a vacuum cleaner, sucking drugs and death right into the U.S.”
  • “… likewise, billions of dollars get brought into Mexico through the border. We get killers, drugs & crime, they get the money!”
  • “When will people, and the media, start to apologize to me for my statement, ‘Mexico is sending…” , which turned out to be true?”
  • “Can you envision Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton negotiating with ‘El Chapo’, the Mexican drug lord who escaped from prison… Trump, however, would kick his ass!”

From somewhere deep inside Mexico, El Chapo spoke for the honor of millions of Mexican illegal aliens streaming into America, the U.S. mainstream media, and Trumps GOP and Democratic Party rivals:

“If you keep pissing me off I’m going to make you eat your words you f&#$&ing blond milk sh&%.”

According to the London Daily Mail, El Chapo’s Twitter account became “particularly active” as the drug kingpin sent out “messages of victory… threatening his enemies with gruesome death.”

“Never say never,” El Chapo tweeted, “this world keeps turning. In this life, he who risks nothing cannot win.”

And at a time when Republican candidates bleat absurd niceties about illegal immigration as an expression of “love,” El Chapo knows America’s porous southern border is simply good for business… his business.

As the International Assessment and Strategy Center has noted, the Central American gang MS-13 represents “a significant transnational criminal organization. The gang was targeted for its involvement in ‘serious transnational criminal activities, including drug trafficking, kidnapping, human smuggling, sex trafficking, murder, assassinations, racketeering, blackmail, extortion and immigration offenses.”

In 2014, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that MS-13 members came to St. Paul, Minnesota. “The gang was hired by the infamous Sinaloa drug cartel, which has operations from Central America all the way into the [U.S.] Midwest. Three men from the gang arrived in St. Paul last month and moved quickly to find two teenagers who were accused of stealing 30 pounds of methanphetamines worth $200,000.” (Enphasis added)

When the teenagers could not produce the drugs or money for their MS-13 visitors, “they were tortured,” said the Star Tribune.

According to the FBI’s MS-13 National Joint Task Force, the gang “operates in at least 42 [U.S.] states and the District of Columbia and has about 6,000-10,000 members nationwide.

Americans are starting to notice a myriad of symbiotic relationships at play in their country: Latin American drug cartels profit by trafficking in illegal immigrants and drugs – bringing both to America; some of these illegals are gang members sent as ruthless overseers of cartel operations in America; Crony capitalists exploit unskilled illegals with low-salaried jobs, which help drive down wages in America; craven politicians hope to trap them in the inescapable pit that is the welfare system in America; said politicians then blackmail them for votes if they want to see increases in government subsistence payoffs, widening the hopelessness of government dependence in America.

It is said that a man is distinguished by his enemies. And if Donald Trump is rising in the estimation of his countrymen, it’s because of the enemies arrayed against him: vicious cartel drug lords; the mainstream media; amnesty-obsessed politicians in both parties; Mexico’s corrupt kleptocracy; and the organized left.

“You have enemies?” Winston Churchill once asked. “Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.”
