Mexico Hails Frida the Rescue Dog Who Has Saved Dozens Following Earthquake

FRIDA LOOKS GOOD IN HER SAFETY GOGGLES.

Give a dog a job to do. They feel useful. That makes them happy.

You can see the happiness written on canine hero Frida’s face. She’s been finding Mexicans trapped in earthquake rubble. Apparently, including some trapped kittens.

Good dog, Frida.

CBS Local San Francisco

One of the heroes emerging from the aftermath of Tuesday’s 7.1 earthquake in central Mexico is a rescuer with four legs and a growing following.

Frida, a specially-trained Labrador Retriever, has saved the lives of at least a dozen people buried in Mexico’s most-recent quake as well as the one which hit southern Mexico on September 18.

Mexico’s Naval Secretariat (Secretaría de Marina) said in a Twitter post that Frida has saved more than 50 people during recent natural disasters, both in Mexico and other countries.

President Enrique Peña Nieto hailed Frida’s efforts on Twitter as well. “This is Frida,” he wrote. “She belongs to @SEMAR_mx and has helped save 52 lives in various natural disasters at national and international levels.”

Frida wears doggie-friendly goggles to protect her eyes from smoke and booties to protect her pads and allow her to dig in rough terrain.

She has participated in rescue missions in Central and South America, as well as Haiti.

Frida has become an internet sensation, while also bringing a spotlight on her canine companions.

Construction Set to Begin in Two Weeks on Prototypes for Trump’s Wall

MAGA, baby! At this point the wall is more a symbol of the will to resist the globalists than anything I can think of.

By The Washington Post
WASHINGTON – The Trump administration on Thursday announced it has chosen four companies to build concrete prototypes of the president’s much-touted border wall.

Construction of the prototypes, to take place in San Diego, is the first step in fulfilling Trump’s campaign promise of building a “big, beautiful” wall stretching along the 2,000-mile Mexico border.

“Today we mark a significant milestone,” said Ronald Vitiello, acting deputy commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection. “This is the first tangible result of the action planning that has gone on. This is the use of the resources we had available for this year.” There appears to be a lack of political will to fund a continuous barrier. Congress has set aside $20 million in the current budget to build the prototypes but has not appropriated any other money for the wall. Each of the four contracts are worth between just under $400,000 and $500,000, Vitiello said.

The companies chosen are: Caddell Construction in Montgomery, Alabama, Fisher Sand & Gravel/DBA Fisher Industries in Tempe, Arizona, Texas Sterling Construction in Houston, Texas, and W.G. Yates & Sons Construction in Philadelphia, Mississippi.

Construction is expected to begin on the concrete prototypes in two weeks, Vitiello said, and should be complete this fall within 30 days after breaking ground. Each prototype will be 30-feet long and up to 30-feet high, and will be located within close proximity of each other, he said. They will act as a secondary barrier in a border enforcement zone that already has a fence.

Homeland Security officials will then spend 30 to 60 days using small hand tools to test the prototypes to see how resistant they are to tampering and penetration, Vitiello said. Officials will consider aesthetics as well as anti-climb features and how technology could be used to complement the physical barrier.

“We are not just asking for a physical structure,” Vitiello said. “We’re asking for all the tools that help secure the border.”

The administration was originally expected to announce its decision on prototypes in June, but the contracting process was delayed after protests from two companies that had not made the list of finalists.

The Government Accountability Office dismissed the protests last Friday, but unsuccessful bidders now have another opportunity to file new protests, which could further delay construction.

During his visit last week to Phoenix, Trump threatened to shut down the government if Congress does not agree to fund his wall in September.

“Believe me, if we have to close down our government, we’re building that wall,” Trump said during his Arizona rally. ” The American people voted for immigration control. That’s one of the reasons I’m here, and that is what the American people deserve, and they’re going to get it.”

Public Health Alert! Mexican Papayas Sicken 100 Americans

According to Science 2.0, the Mexicans must be using fecal matter as fertilizer or irrigating with water contaminated by fecal matter.

The reputation that Mexicans have for defecating in the fields is a common theme when water cooler talk turns to Mexican farm workers. See comic above. In all honesty, American farmers did the same thing, but would take the time to walk to nearby woods so as not to contaminate the crops.

Americans have been duped into allowing a significant part of our foodstuffs be supplied by Mexico. If you’d like a ray of hope, Mexico’s food safety record is probably better than China’s.

Fox News

A deadly salmonella outbreak linked to papayas imported from Mexico sickened an additional 64 people and expanded to 16 U.S. states, federal health officials reported on Friday.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the source of the salmonella outbreak was traced back to Caribena brand papayas from the Carica de Campeche farm. In July, at least one New York City resident died. Another 35 people were hospitalized with salmonella as of Friday.

“When in doubt, don’t eat, sell, or serve them and throw them out,” the CDC said.

People were first sickened after eating the fruit beginning on May 17, according to the CDC. The people infected were between ages less than 1 to 95.

Health officials tested the fruit found in the Mexican farm and identified five strands of salmonella that sickened at least 109 people.

“The agency is working to identify other brands of papayas that may have originated from Carica de Campeche and facilitate recalls,” the CDC reported.

A recall was already issued on July 26 for papayas distributed by Grande Produce. The fruit was sold in U.S. markets between July 10 and July 19. The FDA plans to test more papayas imported from Mexico to identify other possible farms with contaminated fruit.

Beaner vs. Beaner Street Corner Taco Cart Assault: Argentinians Hate Mexicans!!!

Aww come on. The video below must be fake. Only evil whitey can be racist. Mestizos love each other, embracing peace and brotherhood.

Right?

LA Weekly reports that this story has gone viral.

Benjamín Ramirez says he started filming with a cellphone the moment he saw a familiar antagonist approach.

Ramirez, 24, is an immigrant from Mexico who operates a food cart in Hollywood. But these days he is better known as The Elote Man, after he filmed and posted a video on social media of an assailant turning over the cart from which he sells the Mexican snack of fresh ears of corn lathered with mayonnaise, chile pepper and grated cheese.

Ramirez says he has crossed paths before with the man in the video, identified as an Argentinian metal musician named Carlos Hakas. He says that on three separate occasions Hakas confronted him about the cart. “He’s said things before,” Ramirez says. “Telling me I couldn’t sell here or block the sidewalk, and that I didn’t have permits to sell. I ignored him and left.”

Last Monday, July 17, Ramirez was standing beside his cart at the corner of Romaine and El Centro in Hollywood when Hakas and his girlfriend, Holly Covella, were out walking their dog. The video begins as Hakas, complaining the cart is blocking the sidewalk, delivers an ultimatum in Spanish: “Move the cart or I’ll move it for you.”

When Ramirez stands his ground, Hakas hands the dog leash to Covella and moves to accost the vendor. The video shows that Hakas brandishes a pink object in his right hand that is difficult to identify; Ramirez says he believes it was a stun gun. The elote vendor says he reached for the nearest object in self-defense — a small container of chile powder — and tossed it at Hakas, the red powder landing on his face and chest.

The video shows that as Ramirez retreats into the street, Hakas seizes hold of the cart and overturns it, spilling utensils, coolers and food items onto the sidewalk and into Romaine Street, including plenty of fresh ears of corn. Ramirez grabs a metal pole and waves it in Hakas’s direction but does not swing. (Covella shouts, “Don’t you fucking try it!”)

Ramirez then turns the camera on himself and says he was attacked by a racist. “I’m no racist,” Hakas responds. “I’m Argentinian, you retard.” Ramirez says the cart’s umbrella was damaged, along with the bottles of flavors for the shaved ice and a day’s worth of ice and food supplies.

The video has received 4.7 million views, 69,000 shares, and 20,000 comments since Ramirez’s mother uploaded it onto Facebook on July 24.

Raw cell phone footage:

News report:

TV news actually reports that Mestizos from Argentina living in LA hate Mexicans. TV news actually reported that tidbit of racism.

Anyway, Mexicans love to set up taco stands everywhere. Both of the cockroaches involved in this confrontation are probably in LA illegally and both should be deported, but LA is a “sanctuary city,” or more accurately, a sanctuary sh*tty.

White-Women-Owned Portland Burrito Shop Forced to Close Amid Accusations of Cultural Appropriation

Two young white women (they appear to be liberal hipsters) have learned that Mexicans rule their liberal Oregon city.

The brouhaha over their using authentic Mexican recipes to make tortillas for their burritos has forced them to shut their business.

While I have more sympathy for the Christian bakery that was driven out of business for refusing to bake a “gay” wedding cake, these ladies also merit our attention.

Fox News

Just one week after Kooks Burritos in Portland, Ore., was featured in a profile for local publication Willamette Week, the pop-up Mexican food cart has closed down amid accusations that they ripped off their recipes.

Kali Wilgus and Liz “LC” Connelly, the two white women who started Kooks earlier this year, have been accused of stealing their techniques from the “tortilla ladies” of Puerto Nuevo, Mexico — because Connelly told Willamette Week that they gathered their recipes and tortilla-making processes during a holiday road-trip to the Baja California village.

KOOKS BURRITOS.

“I picked the brains of every tortilla lady there in the worst broken Spanish ever, and they showed me a little of what they did,” she told the site. “They told us the basic ingredients, and we saw them moving and stretching the dough similar to how pizza makers do before rolling it out with rolling pins.”

In the profile, which first ran May 16, Connelly also claimed that, when the Mexican cooks wouldn’t give up their trade secrets, she and Wilgus “were peeking into the windows of every kitchen, totally fascinated by how easy they made it look.”

Connelly then said she used a trial-and-error process to recreate a tortilla with the same flavor and texture after returning to Portland. She and Wilgus then opened their weekend pop-up inside a taco truck on SE Cesar Estrada Chavez Boulevard, and began serving their Mexican-style tortillas filled with California-inspired ingredients.

Though the eatery had been open for several months, the owners of Kooks were only recently accused of cultural appropriation by The Portland Mercury and Mic.com based on Connelly’s revelations.

“Because of Portland’s underlying racism, the people who rightly own these traditions and cultures that exist are already treated poorly,” The Portland Mercury said, calling the closure of Kooks a “victory.”

The article continues,”These appropriating businesses are erasing and exploiting their already marginalized identities for the purpose of profit and praise.”

Although whites are still a majority in America, the war on whites is in full bloom. Everywhere, everyday, there’s some new denial of the right to be white. In this instance, whites are denied the right to make ethnic food. Next, whites will be denied the right to eat ethnic food. Ultimately, whites will be denied the right to earn a living and to eat.

The time for resistance is now. Remember Kooks!

Mexican Mob Attacks, Nearly Kills Russian “Nazi” Over Insults in Cancun

The mainstream media is soft playing this story. I’ve pieced together the full extent of the horrific violence from two sources. Watch the Mexicans attack their “Nazi” in the above one-minute video. Apparently, the Mexican police let the attack go on for hours.

Yahoo.com

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – A mob of angry Mexicans attacked a Russian man in the Caribbean resort of Cancun with sticks and rocks over his repeated insults against locals, and the 42-year-old man was accused of fatally stabbing a youth in the melee, authorities said on Saturday.

Police rescued the Russian, identified as Aleksei Makeev, after the crowd stormed his apartment on Friday night, said Guillermo Brahms, secretary general of Benito Juarez municipality, which encompasses Cancun.

Blurry footage of the attack circulated widely on Mexican media on Saturday. In one clip, assailants can be heard shouting “You’re going to die” and “I’m going to cut your head off” as they closed in on the Russian.

The incident began when a group of people confronted Makeev over his disparaging comments toward locals, many of which he videotaped and posted online.

Makeev stabbed a youth who got into his apartment, prompting the mob to grow and the violence to escalate, Brahms said.

The youth later died of his injuries. Makeev, who was taken to hospital for treatment, is being held there under protective custody, the official said.

Authorities said Makeev made videos of himself insulting people in public places in Russian, English and Spanish. In some, he spoke against a backdrop of swastikas.

It was not clear how long Makeev had been in Mexico, but Aquaworld, a company offering maritime tours in Cancun, said in a statement on Facebook the Russian had been dismissed from its payroll in November 2015 because of his aggressive behavior.

Mexico’s National Migration Institute said in separate statement that multiple complaints had been filed against Makeev because of his behavior and that it was seeking the cooperation of Russian authorities to deport him.

The Russian embassy had no immediate comment.

There are a large number of videos narrated in Spanish. This three minute one shows the mob’s rage.

More details from The Daily Beast

“I’m going to decapitate you,” one man shouted at Aleksei Viktorovich Makeev, as the bloodied 42-year-old Russian resident of Mexico fled the interior of his home for a nearby rooftop while the mob pelted him with large rocks and jeered. When Makeev finally collapsed on the rooftop, covered in his own blood—and that of an unarmed teenager whom he stabbed moments before, after the teen attempted to enter the Russian’s apartment—the townspeople finally let him be, as reporters livestreaming from the scene claimed that Makeev had died.

In fact, after being beaten with sticks and stoned nearly to death, the half-naked Russian was transported to a local hospital and treated for his injuries. The townspeople had fractured his skull.

Makeev is now reportedly in stable condition, but remains in a drug-induced coma, paralyzed and likely brain-damaged, said Dmitry Bolbot, Mexico City’s Russian consul. But the 19-year-old youth whose last name has not yet been disclosed, “Lalo”—a nickname for Eduardo—bled out on the pavement as paramedics attempted to save his life. He was pronounced dead soon after Makeev stabbed him repeatedly in the stomach with a kitchen knife as he fled the home. The horrific stabbing was also caught on tape.

“The Russian has just stabbed this person. He’s losing a lot of blood,” someone said in one of many livestreams of the hours-long encounter, as thousands of social media users watched from their phones and computers, leaving comments like “Cut off [the Russian’s] head! Toss him in a ditch,” and “Finish him off! Get it over with!”
The mob descended on his home after local media reports began circulating on Friday about Makeev, who had spent the previous months uploading videos of himself on his personal YouTube channels surrounded by swastikas.

In the videos, one can see that he had made a hobby of disparaging the people of Mexico, speaking with particular loathing about indigenous women and infants. He was dubbed #LordNaziRuso on social media—Lord Russian Nazi—and outrage quickly grew.

Mestizos are a stupid, ignorant, violent people. Stay out of Mexico.

This is Why We Need Trump’s Wall

I was going to post the image results of a Google search related to Mexican violence, but the results were so horrifically repulsive that I couldn’t bring myself to do it to you, the reader. Thus, the photo above is of Mexican guns, not dead and mutilated Mexicans. God only knows how many the arrested Mexicans in the photo killed.

What we do know from what is probably reliable data is that Mexico is one of the deadliest countries on earth. To me, it’s a losing proposition to even think about being an American tourist in Mexico.

Excerpt from Zerohedge

Why can’t brain dead liberals understand the need for a wall after seeing these statistics?

How can we have an unsecured border with a failed third world state, where murder and drugs are the two biggest imports?

Mexico was second deadliest country in 2016

(CNN) It was the second deadliest conflict in the world last year, but it hardly registered in the international headlines.

As Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan dominated the news agenda, Mexico’s drug wars claimed 23,000 lives during 2016 — second only to Syria, where 50,000 people died as a result of the civil war.

“This is all the more surprising, considering that the conflict deaths [in Mexico] are nearly all attributable to small arms,” said John Chipman, chief executive and director-general of the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), which issued its annual survey of armed conflict on Tuesday.

“The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan claimed 17,000 and 16,000 lives respectively in 2016, although in lethality they were surpassed by conflicts in Mexico and Central America, which have received much less attention from the media and the international community,” said Anastasia Voronkova, the editor of the survey.

Rising death toll
Voronkova said the number of homicides rose in 22 of Mexico’s 32 states during 2016 and the rivalries between cartels increased in violence.

“It is noteworthy that the largest rises in fatalities were registered in states that were key battlegrounds for control between competing, increasingly fragmented cartels,” she said.

“The violence grew worse as the cartels expanded the territorial reach of their campaigns, seeking to ‘cleanse’ areas of rivals in their efforts to secure a monopoly on drug-trafficking routes and other criminal assets.”
Mexican drug cartels take in between $19 billion and $29 billion annually from US drug sales, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

Rivalries between the cartels wreak havoc on the lives of civilians who have nothing to do with narcotics. Bystanders, people who refused to join cartels, migrants, journalists and government officials have all been killed.

Not on news agenda
Jacob Parakilas, assistant head of the US and the Americas Programme at London-based think tank Chatham House, said part of the reason for the relative lack of attention paid to Mexico in the international media is “it’s not a war in the political sense of the word. The participants largely don’t have a political objective. They’re not trying to create a breakaway state. It doesn’t come with the same visuals. There are no air strikes.

“Also this has been going on since the beginning of the modern drug trade in the Americas. It’s not news in that sense. And Mexico is one of the most dangerous countries in the world to be a journalist. They are intentionally targeted in Mexico, which puts a dampener on the ability to report on this.”
