Cartels Recruiting US Children to Smuggle Drugs 


Free Child Labor in Nogales, Arizona 

Cristal M Clark 

Kids seem to be targeted for all sorts of reasons these days, exploiting their youth, used in online scams, overseas used in manufacturing plants, terrorists use them to kill, in Mexico, villages plagued by cartel violence is teaching kids as young as 8 to kill cartel members, now it would appear that along the U.S. and Mexico border cartels are hiring US children as young as 12 years old to smuggle drugs and weapons.


Makes sense, kids are not really searched or looked too closely at when it comes to looking for drug smugglers. Tucson Sector Border Patrol agent Alan Regalado: “It’s a problem, we know it’s there, we’re trying to mitigate that issue through education and prevention.” Which is sort of funny because if the cartels are actually paying these kids, good luck mitigating shit. The issue also extends past just Arizona. 

According to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection who uses fiscal years, which start in October, in 2018 there were 36 children arrested for narcotics at Arizona’s ports of entry. In 2019, that number jumped to 57. So far this year, there’s been 17 arrests. Not too crazy so far however, now that news of this is hitting the mainstream I am betting kids looking to make some extra cash will find ways to apply for jobs running drugs and guns for the cartels.

Some suspect that as more kids are arrested the cartels will move on to the elderly and pregnant women, which they have used in the past but the reality is this, we have more kids in this country than we know what to do with, these kids are tech savvy, drugs are already being purchased on social media platforms in secret, the cartels really have no need to move on from employing this nation’s youth to do their bidding regardless of 17 being arrested thus far in this fiscal year.

Smugglers Outsmart Trump’s Border Wall


Trump’s Border Wall – A Complete Joke

Cristal M Clark

We’ve sort of seen it all with Trump’s wall, people climbing it, digging under it, stealing parts of it and now, it appears that smugglers have decided, fuck it and are in fact, cutting right through the wall. 

US agents and officials with knowledge of border wall damage are reporting to multiple news outlets that yes, smugglers have been cutting through the steel and concrete portions of the wall, creating openings wide enough for people and drugs to be smuggled through said openings.


What’s really funny is that Trump really does not seem to be bothered by this news, in fact when asked about it, his response was “You can cut through just about anything.” 


Tf? Didn’t he inform the world a couple of weeks ago that he was building a wall in Colorado that you can’t cut, crawl over or dig under? 

The smugglers are utilizing reciprocating saws which can cut through the bollards in a matter of minutes. Taking it a step further, smugglers also try to hide a breach in the barrier, by returning the cut in the bollard to its original position or using a putty that looks like the hole has been fixed, so that they can keep using that opening.

Regardless of being fixed and welding the damaged bollards, smugglers still return to the same spot because the metal and the concrete at the bollards’ cores have already been weakened, making it easier to damage again. 

You sort of have to hand it to the cartels and smugglers for showing us all just how pathetically ridiculous Trump’s ideas for keeping the US safe from illegal imigration and drugs, and  just fail, over and over again.  

And BTW the wall at the southern border and all of it’s fixes are being paid for by us, US taxpayers.

Cop Tied to Cartels?


Royal Canadian Mounted Police

Cristal M Clark 

Cameron Ortis, 47, the civilian director of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) intelligence unit, was charged last week with 3 counts of breaching the Security Information Act and two criminal code offenses. Basically, he has been charged with attempting to sell national secrets. 


The charges go all the way back to 2015 and allege that Cameron attempted to sell high level secrets to an unnamed foreign entity. 

The bad news is that no one is really quite sure just who that foreign entity was, some speculate it was China, others believe it to be drug cartels. 

Canada is having some relationship issues with China currently yet, the drug cartel idea seems to be most fitting in this case. Cameron does happen to have a background in East Asian affairs and, according to his Linkedin profile, speaks Mandarin. So, it would not be far fetched to believe he was selling intel to China. 

I know how it sounds however, Canada is big on BlackBerry smartphones, Vancouver happens to host a pretty seedy company tasked with upgrading the BlackBerry smartphones with unhackable encrypted communications for drug cartel bosses in Mexico, the United States, and in Australia. 

Odd right?

Naturally, this upgrading for the cartels has been happening without the consent and knowledge of well, the makers of BlackBerry, which is even more odd and outlandish. 

To make matters worse this has the potential to be an embarrassment for the Canadian security establishment, because of her intelligence relationships with, the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.

Cameron had “Top Secret” clearance, which means that he also had access not only to the files of Canada’s 20 intelligence-gathering agencies, but also to those of the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. 

Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Commissioner of the RCMP, Brenda Lucki are trying to work with her allies to ensure that nothing super significant was sold. 

The rumors are running pretty rampant in both the US and in Canada about just what Cameron had access to, who he sold it to and why, some even suggest that the FBI had been the ones to alert Canadian Authorities about Cameron but US officials have neither confirmed nor denied that.

5 Minors Killed After Police Kidnapped Them


Mexico City – Drug Cartels

Cristal M Clark 

Naturally only in Mexico could this “accident” happen. The Mexican Government has come forward and apologized for for deaths of at least 5 minors who had been taken by police then promptly handed over to the one of the most violent known drug gangs in Mexico.

It should be noted that this is in fact rare for Mexico to actually admit to the state’s culpability/participation in such crimes.


Officials initially lied, in their initial statement they insisted that the youth were criminals when they went missing in 2016 in the Gulf state of Veracruz, one of Mexico’s most violent places to visit or disappear in.

Columba Arroniz, a mother of one of the dead youth had this to say whilst tears streamed down her face; “More than anything, we want to reclaim the good name of our kids … and demand justice for them and for thousands of others who experience the same thing.”

The minors, 3 boys and 1 girl were on their way home when they were stopped by local police, in what police are calling “the mistaken belief they had ties to a gang,” then turned over to members of the powerful Jalisco New Generation Cartel.


They were then murdered and their bodies incinerated, according to preliminary findings. Which has all of the same markings as the 2014 abduction subsequent massacre of 43 trainee teachers in southwest Mexico, in which the government did admit that police were involved.

One debate has been brewing for some time and that is, should the United States suck it up and consider the cartels and drug gangs from Mexico terrorist groups? This debate, well it has really started heating up again, along with more and more support for it.


Cartels fight in an effort to control trafficking routes, the illegal drug trade, human smuggling, extortion and kidnapping.

In the last decade turf wars among increasingly splintered criminal cartels have left more than 40,000 people missing, as well as around 26,000 unidentified corpses in over 1,100 mass graves scattered about Mexico.

Perhaps it is time to change the game and rather than simply having a heated debate about considering the cartels terrorists and actually have real honest discussions because they are our closest neighbors and are currently moving slowly but surely north of that southern border.

U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency – In Bed with Big Pharma


Butting in where they no longer belong


The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration

President Richard Nixon created the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency through an Executive Order in July 1973.

The idea was that the DEA would establish a single unified command to combat “an all-out global war on the drug menace.”

At the time, DEA had 1,470 special agents and a budget of less than $75 million. Today, the DEA has nearly 5,000 special agents and a budget of $2.03 billion.

That’s the brief history of the DEA and what’s really troubling is that, it’s designated purpose for existence is a complete and utter failure.

The United States leads the world in recreational drug use and drug related incarceration.

It seems that through the Executive Order President Nixon decided to issue, he failed to foresee the actual future, a problem our elected leaders often have. I am not talking about being a psychic but it would have made more sense to have a plan that would have better addressed drug addiction rather than jail addicts.

Not to mention neither President Nixon nor the DEA ever considered that big pharma would play a hard and solid hand in drug addictions that have reached epic proportions.

Legal Opioids were responsible for the deaths of 28,647 people in 2014 – drugs big pharma produces, designs and drugs that doctors prescribe.

Not to mention that heroin addiction has reached an all time high (no pun intended), it’s gotten so bad that law enforcement agencies across the US are struggling to contain it.

Understanding non-natural, synthetic drugs or rather designer drugs as I like to call them, let’s look at an non opioid.

Yaz birth control pills were all the talk when they first came out on the market. They were supposed to carry less risk because they were made with a promising new synthetic group of hormones.

As it turned out, they carried the same risks if not more in some cases. Some women died while taking these manufactured, synthetic birth control pills.

The makers of Yaz have been sued multiple times for the lies and the resulting health issues that plagued women after using the drugs.

Our bodies are not and never were designed for the intake of manufactured synthetics.

It was recently announced that the DEA intends to classify Kratom as a schedule 1 controlled and illegal substance in an effort to avoid “an imminent hazard to public safety.”

A tree leaf, which pharmacologists classify as a an alkaloid not an opioid. Most people have turned to this tree leaf to treat everything from pain to opioid addiction.

As it turns out the alkaloid helps people kick the opioid habits they have developed from over-prescribed and overused prescription medications.


Medication’s that the DEA has openly ignored, medications that are not natural but designed, and they are designed not to treat users, but to hook users while at the same time, destroying major organs such as the heart, kidneys and liver.

Can Kratom stimulate opioid receptors in the brain? Yes but so can alcohol, alcohol can be worse however. Even coffee can stimulate opioid receptors in the brain.

The plus to all of this is that Kratom is less habit forming than anything on the market today.

So as one can imagine, the DEA’s move here has left a great many upset and they take this move by the DEA as the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency publicly acknowledging that they are in fact, in bed with big pharma.


Today, I saw a headline pop up with regards to big pharma fighting cannabis legalization simply because it would “significantly limit” the commercial use of that company’s drugs.

Insys Therapeutics Inc, gave $5000,000 to the Arizonans for Responsible Drug Policy, a very prominent and vocal anti-cannabis legalization group.

That donation made them the group’s single, largest donor.

What is very concerning is that the DEA chooses not to notice these things, it is becoming very clear to the public that if one wants legalization or to criminalize of drugs, herbs, a tree leaf all they must do is buy it.

Just like big pharma has done.

So if you can buy your way in like big pharma, anyone could effectively approach the drug cartels and ask for funding for the sole purpose of lobbying to legalize this or that drug, basically buy their way in, get legalization and the cartels would be selling product which as I understand, they really, really want to do.

It’s also worth a mention that in issuing its scheduling notice, the DEA said that the Centers for Disease Control received 660 complaints about kratom (including reports of constipation and vomiting) between 2010 to 2015, out of 3 million calls annually reporting adverse reactions to assorted other foods and drugs.

What’s funny is that the Centers for Disease Control has received more complaints for the same years annually with regards to energy drinks if anyone cared to know that.

At any rate, the DEA has received a record number of calls urging them to back off on this decision, in fact they did not expect the number of calls they would receive.

What that shows is that, the public is sick and tired of the U.S. Government telling them what they should put into their bodies.

And the public is really tired of putting unnatural things into their bodies.

The public no longer wants to be forced into having to take manufactured, designed, synthetic drugs that were created with the sole purpose of creating addiction in its users and a very slow death because they ruin internal organs.

It is time that the DEA took a long hard look at what they are currently attempting and divorce big pharma. 

It’s time that the DEA start doing what it was supposed to do all along and pay more attention to the real drug issues that America is facing.

Starting with those that are and have been created by big pharma.
