Do you hear it, too?

It's the sound of flushing our wonderful country going down the toilet. 

Every morning, I wake up and think I must have been having a nightmare - this can't be true.  And, every morning it's even worse.

Many states are under attack - just to name a few:

New Mexico continues to give driver licenses to illegal aliens - in spite of the increasing fraud and ID theft they have been struggling with for over 10 years.

Colorado now has dangerous drug cartels taking advantage of their new legalized marijuana laws.

Washington is on the brink of allowing illegal alien students (already granted an in state tuition benefit) to access grant money.

Oregon, is on the brink of granting driver privilege cards to illegal aliens, if PODL isn't successful in overturning the new law in November.

And now, the GOP leadership announces its plans and principles for immigration reform...

What the hell is going on here?  I keep asking myself this question - over and over again.

Are our elected officials so indebted to big business donors, are they so swayed by lobbying bands of charismatic illegal aliens and their smooth talking advocates, are they so corrupt, or heaven forbid - are they just so stupid they don't see the handwriting on the wall.  Do they stand on any principles whatsoever or do they even have any kind of moral compass?  It would appear the answer to those questions is NO!

Our country is being sucked down the crapper with the guiding hand of many of our elected officials from both sides of the aisle!  Our nation's sovereignty and everything our great nation stands for is at risk.  These politicians are willing to flush all the men and women who fought and died for our freedom, all the immigrants who followed the rules and came here the right way and all the hard working, tax paying, law abiding citizens are going down with it.

After the big flush - think about what will be left of our country.  That's where the nightmare really begins.

Every single one of you that reads this post must call your Congressman and tell them that if they don't do everything in their power to stop this train wreck of 'immigration reform', if they support it in any way, you will do everything in your power to see they never return to Washington for another term.

Let's stop this nightmare and shine a light on the politicians flushing our great country down the toilet!

Woof woof: Portland police dog sniffs out $1.5 million in meth

Colorado pot shops likely targets of cartels, say experts

As the smoke settles from the first week of legal marijuana sales in Colorado, experts are warning that sanctioned pot dealers could become targets for the very folks they put out of business.

Taking over a trade once ruled by drug cartels and turning it into an all-cash business could make pot shops prime targets for extortion, black-market competition and robbery. One veteran border narcotics agent told FoxNews.com Colorado's legal pot industry will find it hard to keep the criminals from horning in on a lucrative business they once controlled.

"What is quite possible is that cartels will hire straw owners who have clean records who can apply for a license, then sell large quantities both legally and on the black market."

- Denver DEA office spokesman Albert Villasuso

"Mexico is already in Colorado without the risks," the agent, who requested anonymity, said of the state's heavy pre-existing cartel presence. "Legal businesses will likely see a rise in extortion attempts while law enforcement will see a lot of backdoor deals being made."

Cartels, especially the Juarez and Sinaloa, who have a strong presence in Colorado, could not have been happy with the estimated $1 million in sales Jan. 1, the first day of legalized retail sales. In 2012 the Mexican Competitiveness Institute issued a report saying that Mexico’s cartels would lose as much as $1.425 billion if Colorado legalized marijuana. The organization also predicted that drug trafficking revenues would fall 20 to 30 percent, and the Sinaloa cartel, which would be the most affected, would lose up to 50 percent.

Faced with such losses, the violent cartels could force their way in as black market wholesalers or simply rob pot dispensaries, which take only cash and have not been able to establish accounts with banks because of lenders' fears of violating federal laws. But the general consensus is that the Mexican cartels will not quietly relinquish the Denver market.

The owner of the Colorado Springs dispensary told the Denver Post he is planning to get a concealed-weapons permit, for protection when he has to move money out of the store.

"Any way you plan it out, there's going to be a large amount of cash around," he said. "And that's extremely scary."

Denver police are taking a wait-and-see posture as to what may emerge.

“It’s only been a week, so we still have to sit back and see how this will play out,” Denver Police spokesman Sonny Jackson told FoxNews.com. “We’re a police department, we’re always concerns about what may happen.”

Jackson said he would not speculate as to if or which cartels may decide to infiltrate the legitimate businesses or how.

“We’re concerned with the public consumption right now,” Jackson said.

The Marijuana Enforcement Division of the Colorado Department of Revenue, the primary enforcement office responsible for overseeing the production and sale of the retail marijuana, did not return repeated attempts by Fox News.com for comment.

Denver DEA office spokesman Albert Villasuso said with some 50 retail outlets in operation, the agency can only monitor if, how and when the cartels decide to move in to the legalized retail industry in Colorado.

"What is quite possible is that cartels will hire straw owners who have clean records who can apply for a license, then sell large quantities both legally and on the black market," Villasuso said. "We still don't know what the fall out will be but when there is this much money involved the potential is great for groups to want capitalize."

Villasuso also said that even if legal stores do face extortion efforts by cartel groups it is unlikely law enforcement will even be made aware of it if merchants are too frightened to come to police. Extortion has proven to be a lucrative ancillary enterprise for cartels in Mexico resulting in thousands of businesses closing rather than pay the quota, as it is called, or the store owners face the threat of death, which too has occurred.

One group who hopes to mitigate any risks is the Blue Line Protection Group, which specializes only in security for the marijuana stores.

Seeing a growing market, Ted Daniels started the company and uses ex-military and law enforcement to provide security for the stores' money and supply shipments, and the growing operations. The highly-trained and combat-experienced guards are heavily-armed with assault rifles and protective vests.

"This was an industry here that created a lot of challenges," Daniels told WDVR television news in Denver Jan. 7. "This group I put together is designed specifically to protect product, people, and money."

Medford man charged with heroin, cocaine possession

A Medford man was arrested Tuesday on heroin- and cocaine-related charges by local drug enforcement officers, authorities said.

Medford Area Drug and Gang Enforcement police arrested Zeus Apolo Guzman-Aguilar, 36, of the 1200 block of Bens Lane, after conducting a raid at a residence in the 3300 block of Table Rock Road, said a MADGE news release.

According to court records, Guzman-Aguilar lives on Bens Lane in Medford, but he is being considered an illegal immigrant, according to Jackson County Jail records.

The raid netted 2 ounces of cocaine, 1 ounce of heroin and weight scales, the release said.

Before obtaining a search warrant for the property, police conducted a two-month investigation.

"Other occupants on the premises were found not to be involved in the criminal behavior," the release said.

Guzman-Aguilar is lodged in the Jackson County Jail without bail on charges of possession, delivery and manufacture of heroin; possession, delivery and manufacture of cocaine; a parole violation for delivery of heroin; and being in the country illegally, jail records show.

According to online court records, Guzman-Aguilar was charged in 2011 with delivery, manufacture and possession of heroin, but was only convicted of possession of heroin in Jackson County Circuit Court.

Massive marijuana grow in eastern Oregon forest nets guilty verdicts for defendant

A 34-year-old man was found guilty by a federal jury in Portland on Monday in connection with a massive marijuana growing operation that covered a mile-and-a-half stretch in eastern Oregon's Wallowa Whitman National Forest.

Fredy Figueroa-Montes was the only one of six defendants to choose to go to trial for what is believed to be the largest marijuana grow ever found in Oregon, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office....

....Authorities discovered more than 91,000 plants in the marijuana grow. The defendants had torn out trees and underbrush to develop several pods of plants.....and used more than 500 pounds of illegal pesticides, herbicides, fertilizer and rodent-killing chemicals for the operation. Damage to the area along the Wildcat Creek was estimated at $97,000....

 

Raid nabs nearly 6 pounds of meth

A Friday morning police raid on a southwest Medford home netted almost 6 pounds of methamphetamine in the single largest seizure from a drug house in MADGE's four-year history, authorities said.

Medford Area Drug and Gang Enforcement team investigators also arrested a 35-year-old suspected illegal alien who police believe was selling methamphetamine locally for at least the past two months.

"This was the largest that MADGE has ever done," said Lt. Kevin Walruff, MADGE's commander. "And this wasn't drugs traveling through. They were destined to be sold here in the Rogue Valley."

Manuel Gastelum-Ferro was arraigned Monday in Jackson County Circuit Court on charges of unlawful possession, manufacture and distribution of methamphetamine. He remained Monday in the Jackson County Jail without bail while his immigration status was reviewed, jail records show.

His case was scheduled to be presented today to a Jackson County grand jury, Walruff said.

MADGE investigators two months ago developed information that Gastelum-Ferro was selling methamphetamine, Walruff said. Investigators believe Castelum-Ferro, who has ties to Southern California, moved to Medford recently and had been renting a house in the 1300 block of Andrew Drive, Walruff said.

MADGE officers got a search warrant and, along with immigration agents, raided the house Friday morning and hit the mother lode — 5.91 pounds of methamphetamine stashed in the residence and vehicles.

"We knew he had a fair amount, but we initially didn't think it would be that large," Walruff said.

Since its inception in 2010, MADGE agents in the past have intercepted as much as 65 pounds of methamphetamine heading up Interstate 5, but no single seizure as large as Friday's from someone based here, Walruff said.

Investigators believe the methamphetamine originated in Southern California, but "we're still trying to determine who the source of that supply was," he said.

Also seized from the residence were scales and packaging material, police said.

No other local arrests were expected, Walruff said.

U.S. Immigration Officers Give Frightening Warning

Chris Crane, president of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Council, which represents immigration enforcement officers, recently called on Congress to resist immigration reforms that harm his officers’ ability to do their jobs:

ICE officers are being ordered by [Administration] political appointees to ignore the law. Violent criminal aliens are released every day from jails back into American communities. ICE Officers face disciplinary action for engaging in routine law enforcement actions. We are barred from enforcing large sections of the Immigration and Nationality Act, even when public safety is at risk. Officer morale is devastated.

If this were the U.S. Capitol Police, the Secret Service, or the military, Congress would be outraged, the President would react firmly and swiftly, and pundits and groups from across the country would be demanding this problem be fixed. Sadly, though, nothing is being done to fix this broken and dangerous state of affairs.

In fact, the situation is even scarier. As the ICE letter points out, President Obama continues to order ICE officers to ignore ever-growing sections of immigration law and undertake actions that create a risk to public safety. The Senate has passed a gargantuan immigration bill that includes mass amnesty, tons of handouts to special interests, and enough waivers and exemptions to make Obamacare officials jealous.

Notably, the Senate bill does little to actually support the hard-working men and women of ICE and other immigration enforcement agencies. Even worse, amnesty would make the work of ICE even more difficult by encouraging more illegal immigration and adding new classes of provisional immigrants who have special rules that apply to them.

It is sad that it has come to this: “ICE officers are pleading with [Congress] to…stand with American citizens and the immigration officers who put their own personal safety at risk each day to provide for public safety.” U.S. law enforcement officers should not have to beg Congress just to enforce existing laws.

Congress should reject amnesty, which would only further harm our immigration officers’ effort, and instead use the budget process to give ICE and other immigration agencies the resources they need to do their jobs effectively. Then Congress should demand that President Obama uphold immigration law, not selectively enforce it.
