US Citizens Killed in Mexico Ambush; Trump Calls for “War” on Cartels

Nine Mormon women and children were shot in the lawless region of the Mexican border region. Gunmen attacked the members of the LeBaron family – a large clan of Mormons who emigrated to Mexico in the late 19th century.  Three women and six children including a set of baby twins were killed and another six children were left injured.

President Trump has contacted the Mexican President to offer support to tackle the drug cartels who operate in the region.

“If Mexico needs or requests help in cleaning out these monsters, the United States stands ready, willing & able to get involved and do the job quickly and effectively,” Trump wrote in a tweet.

However the leftist populist President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador declared the war on drugs over, and he does not want to reignite it. However the region is seeing mounting violence with drug cartels in the region.

Catholic Priest Refuses Exorcism as Children not Church-Goers

San Juan Tlacotenco (south-west Mexico) – Shortly after starting to play with an Ouija board, three American friends (Alexandra Huerta, 22, her brother Sergio, 23, and cousin Fernando Cuevas, 18) reportedly became possessed by evil spirits and were taken to hospital.

Alexandra’s parents said they had called paramedics after a local Catholic priest in the village of San Juan Tlacotenco refused to perform an exorcism on the three because they were not churchgoers.

Minutes into it, she started ‘growling’ and thrashing around in a ‘trance-like’ state.

Sergio and Fernando also reportedly started showing signs of ‘possession’, including feelings of blindness, deafness and hallucinations.

In reporting to the home, Paramedics also took Alexandra’s parents to hospital.

Alexandra was restrained to prevent her from hurting herself, before treating the three with painkillers, anti-stress medication and eye drops.

 ‘They spoke of feeling numbness, double vision, blindness, deafness, hallucinations, muscle spasm and difficulty swallowing.’

Mexican Military on US soil? Shooting American Citizens?

Some experts believe that aspects of the Mexican army are openly assisting drug cartels along their smuggling routes into U.S. territory.  Further, a report surfaced a month ago that Mexican troops actually held U.S. agents at gunpoint…. on U.S. soil, before retreating back into Mexican territory.

A new report itemizes dozens of invasions across the border by Mexican troops, who have shot Americans and have even landed helicopters on ranchers’ land and held them at gunpoint.

Seeking comment on the Federal response, US Customs and Border Protection Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske admitted that the intruders were “confirmed members of the Mexican military” but he asserts that U.S. border officials determined that no further action was necessary involving the matter.

Kerlikowske stated that military incursions from Mexico are not that frequent but did admit that there were 23 such incidents in the Tucson and Yuma sectors of Arizona since 2010, including three this year so far.

49 decapitated bodies found in Mexico – CNN

Mexican authorities found at least 49 decapitated and dismembered bodies along a highway in a northern border state Sunday morning, officials said.

The remains were left along the road in Nuevo Leon state, between the cities of Monterrey and Reynosa.

A message written on a wall nearby appeared to refer to the Zetas drug cartel.

“This continues to be violence between criminal groups. This is not an attack against the civilian population,” said Jorge Domene, Nuevo Leon’s state security spokesman.

Mexican boy’s eyes gouged out ‘to save the world’ – USATODAY.com

MEXICO CITY (AP) — A 5-year-old Mexican boy whose eyes were allegedly gouged out by his mother as part of a drug-fueled ritual “to save the world” is expected to live, but has been left completely blind, health authorities said Friday.

The boy, identified by authorities only as Fernando, was taken to a hospital in Mexico City after police discovered the mother clutching her eyeless son at a home in the working-class suburb of Nezahualcoyotl early Thursday.

The Mexico City Health Department said the boy lost both eyes and was suffering some leakage of cerebral fluid. He was in intensive care and was listed in guarded condition, but doctors said in a statement that such leakage normally stops by itself and that no brain surgery is planned at the moment.

The chief prosecutor for Mexico state, where Nezahualcoyotl is located, said the boy’s mother had apparently urged others to help her mutilate her son in order “to prevent an earthquake and save the world.”

Several adults were at the home reciting a prayer, and had apparently been fasting because “the world was going to end,” said Nezahualcoyotl assistant police Chief Samuel Cuevas Monroy, quoting the boy’s grandmother. The mother, identified as Maria del Carmen Rios, 28, reportedly told the boy to close his eyes and when he refused, she decided to gouge them out “to clean them.”

Some reported the mother had become incoherent and began shouting “Let’s kill him, to get the Devil out of him,” Neme said.

Most of the others present at the time were relatives, including the boy’s aunt and uncle, and authorities said the adults appeared to have been consuming unspecified drugs. The mother and seven others were being held pending charges.

The 22-year-old aunt allegedly held the boy while the mother gouged out his eyes, apparently with her fingers.

Neme said it was not clear if the mutilation was linked to any sort of religious belief.

Eight followers of the cult known as “Santa Muerte, ” or Saint Death, were recently charged with the sacrificial killings of two 10-year-old boys and a 55-year-old woman in northern Sonora state. The cult had never before been linked to human sacrifice.

Mexico’s most notorious case of ritual sacrifice came with the “narco-satanicos” killings of the 1980s. Fifteen bodies, many of them with signs of ritual sacrifice, were unearthed at a ranch outside the border city of Matamoros, across from Brownsville, Texas.
