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.”

Oreo Cookies Outsourced to Mexico Taste of Beaner Piss and Sweat say Some Consumers

Little did I know that cookie lovers are complaining that the iconic Oreo cookie no longer tastes good. GLPers are angry, claiming that they now taste like piss.

GLP

[link to http://www.breitbart.com]

The New York Post featured a column last week by Lauren Tousignant about a worrying trend for Oreo aficionados. It seems increasing numbers of Americans are finding their favorite sandwich cookies have changed, now tasting “chalky,” “cheap,” or “weird.”

Tousignant’s article is titled “Did Nabisco Ruin America’s Favorite Cookie?” But that headline is a bit misleading. Oreo and Nabisco are now both brands of Mondelez International. Most people have trouble pronouncing Mondelez’ name, let alone keeping track of their many brands. Oreo is a huge business for Mondelez; they made $2 billion dollars in 2016 producing more than 40 billion cookies. Would they really mess with success?

The company says no. In a statement to Breitbart News, Mondelez International said, “Oreo cookies which are made for sale in the US have the same recipe and taste profile, regardless of which manufacturing plant they are made at within our supply chain network. In addition, all of our manufacturing sites are held to the same high standards for safety and quality.”

Writing in the Post, Tousignant did a good job of documenting the problem. She gathered anecdotal evidence from family and friends, and also studied consumer complaint forums, which there is no shortage of on the Internet. She found a “significant increase” in complaints starting in November of 2016.

Senator Ted Cruz Proposes that Mexican Drug Lord El Chapo Pay for The Wall

Yay Ted Cruz. You are the man.

Ted Cruz has pulled a nice little stunt with his El Chapo bucks (see above) and his proposed law that would use money forfeited by alleged drug kingpin El Chapo to pay for Donald Trump’s signature campaign promise.

UPI

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has introduced the “El Chapo Act,” a bill that would use the estimated $14 billion in assets owned by Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán to build a border wall.

“Today I introduced the El Chapo Act, which reserves billions in forfeited assets to pay for border security,” Cruz said in a statement on Tuesday.

The Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order Act — or the El Chapo Act — makes reference to Guzmán, who was extradited from Mexico to the United States in January.

Guzmán pleaded not guilty to 17 criminal charges related to his drug empire — including corruption, murder, conspiracy, drug importation and money laundering.

Cruz said that, if convicted, Guzmán’s forfeited expansive wealth would be redirected for use to build a border wall and to enforce border security, instead of for use by the U.S. Department of Treasury for unspecified reasons — a standard procedure when assets of drug traffickers are seized.

Cruz said that forfeited funds from other drug cartels could also be used.

“Senator Cruz estimates one drug lord alone may be worth $14 billion in confiscated funds. That would be good start toward paying for wall,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said in a statement. “Ted Cruz is exactly right to focus on confiscating Mexican drug money to pay for the wall. What a grand and fitting irony.”

Guzmán’s Sinaloa Cartel is credited with dominating the illegal drug market in nearly the entire United States. “El Chapo” — meaning “The Short One” or “shorty” — so dubbed because of his 5-foot-6-inch frame, was detained in Guatemala in 1993 and then extradited to Mexico to face murder and drug trafficking charges.

He escaped from prison in 2001 by hiding in a laundry cart after bribing prison guards, and was re-captured in February 2014. He was captured a second time in the city of Los Mochis in his home state of Sinaloa on Jan. 8 after escaping from Mexico’s Altiplano Federal Prison on July 11, 2015.

Donald Trump has some fun last year at Ted Cruz’s expense in this video compilation. Enjoy.

Mexican man cleared in sexual assault of schoolgirl because he didn’t enjoy it

DIEGO CRUZ. DID NOT ENJOY HIMSELF.

A Mexican judge in Mexico twisted the law into a pretzel to make sure that Diego Cruz, a young man from a wealthy, influential family, would beat the rap on a sexual assault charge.

Welcome to the corrupt Mexican way of thinking.

The Guardian

A Mexican judge has freed a wealthy young man accused of abducting and sexually assaulting a schoolgirl, on the grounds that the perpetrator did not enjoy himself.

Diego Cruz, 21, was one of four young men from prominent families in the coastal state of Veracruz who were nicknamed “Los Porkys” on social media after they were accused of seizing a classmate from their elite private school as she left a New Year’s party on 1 January 2015.

In a ruling which was made public on Monday, Judge Anuar González found that although Cruz was accused of touching the victim’s breasts and penetrating her with his fingers, he had acted without “carnal intent” – and so was not guilty of assault.

González also found that although the victim, who was 17 at the time, was forced into the car of one of her alleged attackers, she was never “helpless”. Two of the other three suspects are accused of penetrating the victim.

The release of Cruz – who had fled to Spain, but was extradited back to Mexico – has prompted outrage among human rights activists, and marked a new low point in a case that has reinforced the perception that those with money and political connections are above the law.

“He sexually touched her, but because he didn’t enjoy it, it’s not sexual abuse?” said Estefanía Vela Barba, an activist on gender issues.

“Since there was no pleasure in the act, it was intended to cause humiliation. They were touching her, they were bothering her, so for the judge, if the intention wasn’t pleasure, it’s not sexual assault,” said Vela, who works in the legal studies department at the Centre for Teaching and Research in Economics.

“There’s no disputing the facts. It’s not some crazy woman saying this, it’s coming from the judge’s mouth and he’s saying that if they touch you against your will, it might not be abuse.”

The case of Los Porkys has provoked widespread indignation in Mexico, not least because it took place in the coastal state of Veracruz, which over recent months has come to symbolize the failure of the Mexican state to guarantee even a semblance of the rule of law.

Amid an escalating battle between rival crime factions, thousands of women have gone missing in the state; earlier this month, more than 250 human skulls were discovered at what is believed to be a clandestine drug cartel burial ground. Meanwhile, the state’s former governor Javier Duarte is on the run amid allegations that he stole vast amounts of public money.

The case of Los Porkys has also been held up as an example of the rampant impunity allowed the offspring of Mexico’s elite. Fifteen months after the attack, the victim described her ordeal in a public Facebook post, in an apparent attempt to shame authorities into taking action.

“I have nothing to repent,” she wrote. “I’ve gone drinking. I’ve gone to parties. I’ve worn short skirts like many girls my age … and for that I’m going to be judged? For that I deserved what happened?”

Recall when Donald Trump expressed doubt about Mexican judges? It was in relation to a lawsuit against him being heard by a Mexican-American judge.

Trump was right about Mexians. Again. Just as he was right that some Mexicans are rapists.

Tom Brady’s Stolen Jersey Found in Mexico, Journalist Suspected

MUH ALLEGED JERSEY THIEF ON THE RIGHT.

Excerpt from NBC News

Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady’s missing ─ and apparently stolen ─ game jersey has been found, the NFL said Monday.

The culprit appears to be a journalist in Mexico.

An investigation by Houston police, the FBI, the NFL, Brady’s New England Patriots and other law enforcement authorities ended with the quarterback’s Super Bowl LI jersey being found “in the possession of a credentialed member of the international media,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said in a statement.

The suspect has not been identified, and there have been no criminal charges filed.

Brady thanked authorities for their work. “Hopefully when I get the jerseys back, I can make something very positive come from this experience,” he said in a statement.
