Mexican Cartels Dictate Flow of Nearly all Illicit Drugs into the U.S., DEA Confirms

In addition to record-breaking numbers of illegal immigrants hemorrhaging into the United States through Mexico, cartels in the Latin American border nation have caused the worst drug crisis in U.S. history, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). The federal agency, which operates under the Department of Justice (DOJ), is responsible for enforcing the nation’s controlled substances laws and regulations as well as investigating criminals and gangs that traffic illegal drugs into the country. In its annual National Drug Threat Assessment (NDTA), released this month, the DEA outlines and gauges illicit drug threats and trafficking trends endangering the United States. Mexican cartels are at the heart of the report, specifically the Sinaloa and Jalisco Nueva Generación cartels.

Trump Trial: The Prosecution Rests, Lawfare at Court, Where’s the Crime?

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has been dancing around the question for months. The prosecution produced a cacophony of tawdry testimony from a porn star (Stormy Daniels) and a former Trump aide turned convicted felon turned cooperating witness (Michael Cohen) but their claims had little to do with the allegations at the center of the case. Trump is charged with thirty-four felony counts of falsifying business records, generally a low-level misdemeanor. But New York state law elevates the misdemeanor charge to a felony if the defendant’s “intent to defraud includes an intent to commit another crime,” and that’s where Bragg has placed his big bet.

‘This Is Very Illegal’: Experts Say Fauci’s Top Aide Likely Broke The Law By Deleting Emails, Using Private Account

The Daily Caller

A top advisor for former National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Director Anthony Fauci may have illegally taken actions to avoid records requests, experts told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
