CBS News has learned that the Mexican Government has retained an American law firm to explore filing civil charges against U.S. gun manufacturers and distributors over the flood of guns crossing the border into Mexico.
Sources say Mexico's frustration with U.S. efforts to stop the flow of weapons has pushed them into this novel approach. The law firm is looking at charges that may include civil RICO. The contract was signed on November 2, 2010 by a representative of Mexico's Attorney General, at their Washington embassy.
On November 5, 2010 President Felipe Calderon expressed his frustration to CBS News correspondent Peter Greenberg: "We seized more than 90,000 weapons...I am talking like 50,000 assault weapons, AR -5 machine guns, more than 8,000 grenades and almost 10 million bullets. Amazing figures and according to all those cases, the ones we are able to track, most of these are American weapons."
According to sources, investigators will obtain makes and serial numbers of guns seized by Mexican authorities and trace them to their U.S. distributors and manufacturers.
Unable to take on the real gunrunners of the U.S. government, Calderon tries to blame manufacturers. This is all eyewash for domestic political consumption in Mexico. Can you see where the discovery phase of this will go? Right into the Gunwalker conspirators' britches. What a hoot.
LATER: I missed something in this at first glance. Something big. Mexico hired the law firm back in early November 2010 while the Gunwalker scandal still hadn't come to the surface. Here's an excellent question: Could it all been a part of the plan, just a soliloquy from Act II? Does this demonstrate that Calderon was in it from the beginning? Flood the border with U.S. traceable guns so you can prove the "90%" (or as close as you can get), and then have Calderon file suit to cripple the industry financially and keep the NRA busy, while Melson calls for new emergency restrictions and then put it all to bed with new comprehensive totally encompassing legislation. Now that actually could fit. If you're slightly mistrusting of the governments of Mexico and the United States, that is.
Hmmm..... Maybe and maybe not. Recall that even some of the ATF whistleblowers were unable to trace "gunwalker" guns in their own computer systems. Kinda like they never existed? Just saying.
The Mexicans are understandably baying for blood, the US gov can't/ won't give them the ATF and Justice dept officials responsible, so they will throw them a bone,..gun makers, dealers and distributors. The Mexican's get their blood and the firearms industry take a big hit here in the US. Win win for Mexico and Obama.
YES!!! That is exacltly it! It was part of the plan all along. I was just about to email you the link when I saw this post.
It was my thought exactly.
"Lay down with dogs, wake up with fleas". You really thought the Mexicans were on your side? They never are...
Here's a novel idea: Let's countersue Mexico for failing to control the exportation of drugs and human trafficking.
to answer your question, yes.
Pity the buffoons at Reid Collins & Tsai who agreed the represent our narco-state neighbor to the south.
Well, I take that back: they'll moan their loss in court all the way to the bank.
What can we do to discourage this treason?
"Recusation of the permanent, involuntary sort" on a members of a law firm conspiring to aid a foreign power in violating our Constitutional rights?
Or should this be taken up with officials of the offending government?
Break windows at the law firm, or Mexican embassy/consulate?
Perhaps a warning to the traitorous law firm first?
No one is likely to die directly from their actions. So the usual 3per rules of engagement might be of no value.
As if Calderon wasn't unpopular enough in Mexico.
Opposition politicians in Mexico are going to love that date.
While they'd probably enjoy the Gringo bashing too, this gives them a big stick to beat Calderon with.
"Could it all been a part of the plan, just a soliloquy from Act II?"
As this sordid little drama unfolds, it becomes increasingly evident that the White House formulated an intricate criminal conspiracy against American gun owners and the Second Amendment with the aid of a foreign government.
So, my question to you: Does this rise to the level of treason?
Suing the U.S. firearms industry for ATF gunwalking, is just a collectivist pipe dream. Using a "left jab...right hook" combination to setup and take down the industry, may sound good on some U.N. "white paper" but will be scuttled once the whistleblowers take the stand.
OPS normal for the south of the border crowd: going after the wrong group. I've been saying for years that those who want to 'take back' large portions of the US are going after the wrong villains - it was the SPANIARDS who took their country from them in the first place........
We may not be able to prove any actual links in this but as they say on the DC Metro - it's 'sumpnscpicious'.
