Good question. Perhaps I should have left the word biased out, and just left in the fact that the CTH has been called out repeatedly for bad reporting, failing to check facts, and misreporting facts despite there being no legitimate excuse which might explain the failure.

Not sure if intentional or not, but it almost sounded like Mr. Castaneda was threatening to STOP the influx of drugs from going into the United States.

He starts by saying that ALL the drugs are going to the US (with the cooperation of the Mexican Government). If all the drugs are already going to the US, how is them no longer cooperating going to change anything - unless the intended threat is to stop their number one export from going into the US?

If this news is indeed real, I can't but think that this particular threat isn't that of a sane country. It is not only a confession that there are dodgy immigrants but that the whole country is based on dodginess.
So many questions. How does this government manage to order thugs to do what they want?
Are the thugs in with the government?
Is the government in with the thugs?
Why not negotiate like an civilised country?
Why threaten the US and especially innocent people, promising murder and mayhem?
Isn't that war?
Does the Mexican government allow illegal immigration into the US and doesn't see it as a problem?, because the reaction is frankly telling me they are. [let illegals cross or we will...]

In all cases, the wall seems more and more justified. Don't give in to bullies,

Ah, oh ungrateful America. Soon you will see.


Ah oh? ungrateful America? What a joke. It's the bother way around. Mexico needs the US or it will collapse. They have a 60 billion dollar trade deficit and the peso is crashing. They cant sustain their own country without the US. It's common knowledge that their government is run by drug cartels. It's funny how people think Mexico has any power over the US whatsoever.

It's all a joke or a nightmare. How can we get so many people angry in such a short time? No Trump supporter ever promised this crap. I thought when they said change, my kids would be better off. Liars. None of this makes us safer or makes my kids more economically secure. And what the heck happened to Obamacare. Yes or No so people can plan. Unless the future is not in the plan.

US has some of the most entitled, spoiled, ungrateful citizens ever. And this is coming from an American who has been guilty of these same accusations. Only difference is I retain enough self-awareness to see my vice and change it. You fools trudge along as if your s*** don't stink.

We'll see how much power we'll have in the next 6 years when nations begin to isolate themselves from us.

Kind of ironic being that the automatic weapons the cartels use come from U.S.. I guess they plan un drugging us to death???


Umm I remember when this talking point was first spouted, that big sweep in mexico that was attributed wholly to the US having lose gun laws...

Till the ATF released a break down of the guns, and only a small percentage of those guns had serial numbers, and every gun made in the US has a serial number... china, russia... south america... no serial numbers.

I posted whats known facts about mexico and your view is flawed. You place your personal shortcomings and project them onto an entire population as if your personal opinion has any effect on the world. Ah oh you are full of crap.

Oh the horror. Maybe all these citizens of other countries that line up in our streets and protest the host will go home then. As well as the countless citizens of other nations that live off the backs of the american taxpayer.

Trying going home and protesting? How will that work out for you? Try going home and getting a free education or even getting into a school as good as the ones you go to in the US.

We will see how entitled you are when trade relations are put to a halt, and countries begin dealing with other superpowers. Because Donald is NOT a negotiator. He is not charming, he is not persuasive. He is just a bully, and real men; real leaders of country will spot the patterns right away and deal with him accordingly. He proved that on day 4 with his canceled meeting with the Mexican president.

That is precisely why the Mexican president canceled on him. Donald tried to play his little 2 year old 'psych' bluffs, and the president called him on it. Donald, you are dealing with real leaders who have just as much ego as you. Time to man up.

The reality? Your drugs, or the drugs for your friend, senator, congress person, duty manager, branch manager, CEO and janitor will be coming in just the same, no matter what the outcome of all this is. The War on Drugs is fakery, just like the War on Terror is.

The CIA created a whole heap of terror groups over decades, and contrary to popular belief, these organisations are no more independent of the US intelligence community than they are capable of launching a Mars lander. The US, via its business interests and allies in places like Saudi Arabia and Qatar, funnel money and weapons to those they claim to be enemies of, in order to justify the ever increasing vice grip they have over things, via the MIC.

The drugs issue is the same, and many of the factors driving the drugs issue come from the precise same source. Many of the Narco-terror groups in South America, are rebel groups started by the US intelligence community, in order to destabilise governments in the region, keep them at constant war with their own people, give the US a publicly known and apparently reasonable excuse to impose sanctions and other negative measures against them, and giving them an excuse to increase security, security, security, while stealing peoples liberties.

The US intelligence community have budgets you do not see, and part of those funds can be described accurately as "Drug Money". Since they had a hand in the creation of, or have supported many of the big cartels (which also provide plausible deniability when transporting cargo that the US intelligence agencies cannot be seen to transport, like political prisoners, agents, contraband, equipment and so on), they get their cut, by one means or another.

Like Middle Eastern terror, the vast majority of it serves a purpose for the intelligence community. It justifies public budget increases, which pay for things like the NSA data center and the programs it runs, and it brings in black market money that they can sink into projects that have nothing to do with security, and everything to do with slowly but surely making slaves of people, without their express knowledge, leave alone their consent.

Its a shell game, and people who refuse to look deeper, or worse, refuse to accept what they see when they DO look deeper, just allow it to happen, largely because it is easier than doing something about it.

What part of Mexico economy needs the US more than the other way around don't you understand? They are going to renogotiate NAFTA, they have to. Trump is right and you are bitter. The Mexican president can never accept that they will pay for the wall I suspect from immense political pressure and I'm sure threats from the cartels who will probably kill him. But in the end, Mexico will fund the wall bc they are at a disadvantage economically.

Remember when Bush told Saddam & Sons and Obama told ISIS, via CNN and the retards, precisely when the US was going to hit their positions and the planets inhabitants were like 'Why TF are you giving the enemy your tactical intentions.....sh!t-for-brains?'

Same question applies to the rocket scientist running Mexico - not that it matters, they are simply going to have to accept whatever the Trump administration throws at them - and Castaneda's words will now be used as evidence of Mexicos real intentions and feelings about the US.

The fact that he presumes to have the cartels at his disposal and the ability to manipulate them and their illegal drug supply into the US clearly indicates that the Mexican government directly supports organised crime against US interests, and appears to have done so for some time.

Actually, he's saying the exact opposite if people actually listen to the clip. He's pointing out the truth, which is that the vast majority of drugs that flow through Mexico are headed for the US. And people here may not know this but a lot of the US's foreign aid to Mexico is for fighting the cartels and flow of drugs into the country. In fact, here's a simple list showing how our aid to Mexico was allocated in 2012 (HERE):

Economic

Child Survival and Health: -$12,200
Department of Defense Security Assistance: $39,854
Development Assistance: $17.9 million
Economic Support Fund/Security Support Assistance: $40.8 million
Global Health and Child Survival: $3.89 million
Narcotics Control: $27.6 million
Nonproliferation, Anti-Terrorism, Demining and Related: $7.07 million
Other Active Grant Programs: $15.4 million
Other State Assistance: $2.7 million
Other USAID Assistance: $2,764
Other USDA Assistance: $372,914
Peace Corps: $2 million

Military

Military Assistance, Total: $91.7 million


So any wedge between the 2 countries would obviously influence things like this, seeing as the US wouldn't send the money to help Mexico fight the cartels and Mexico would have no incentive to fight the cartels to help the US war on drugs. Remember, Mexico's been fighting a brutal war against the cartels since 2006-ish.

Also, since when did Americans not like drugs from Mexico? I don't use recreational drugs of any kind. But the last time I checked, cartels, gangs, local dealers, and organized crime families sell so many drugs here simply because Americans keep demanding them! And how many people actually check to see where your recreational drugs were grown/manufactured or imported from? If anything, a flood of those products into the American market would cause the prices to collapse, which I doubt many drug users here would object to.

It's unrealistic to publicly humiliate a country, without giving them room even to save face, and not expect some degree of retaliation. To expect other nations to simply take whatever Trump dishes out and eat humble pie and crawl to him with acquiescence isn't happening.

These countries have some moves of their own, and as I'm sure Mr. Trump won't like them, will likewise retaliate and on and on, all which lead to something most of us don't want.

I don't want to see Mexico destroyed economically. They are real people, with real families, schools, churches, and jobs, trying to survive like everybody else.

He cites a young girl who was murdered by a Hispanic undocumented migrant, but never mentions Sandy Hook, Columbine, and the other mass murders we've had from mentally ill persons who are our own citizens.

He is making a mountain out of a mole hill.
