    Here is the latest on the ATF gun scandal…MEXICO CITY — Lawmakers in Mexico are demanding an investigation into a U.S. law enforcement operation that allowed hundreds of weapons to flow into the hands of Mexican drug cartels amid claims from a ranking legislator that at least 150 Mexicans have been killed or wounded by guns trafficked by smugglers under the watch of U.S. agents.

    U.S. authorities say manpower shortages and the high number of weapons sold resulted in their losing track of hundreds of guns, from pistols to .50-caliber sniper rifles, though a federal agent deeply involved in the Phoenix-based operation said it was “impossible” that U.S. authorities did not know the weapons were headed for Mexico.

    The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has acknowledged that at least 195 weapons sold in Arizona under Operation Fast and Furious have been recovered in Mexico, traced as a matter of routine via serial numbers after their recovery from crime scenes, arrests and searches.

    The Mexican lawmaker did not say how the new casualty statistics were calculated. But the new estimates, which could not be independently confirmed, provide troubling new fallout from an investigation in which guns sold to suspected smugglers in the U.S. already have been linked to the deaths of two U.S. law enforcement agents.

    Humberto Benitez Trevino, a federal deputy who chairs the justice committee in the lower chamber, said in comments released by the Congress this week that “we have 150 cases of injuries and homicides with arms that were smuggled and passed illegally into our country.”

    Benitez said the 150 figure came from “sources.” He did not specify who the victims were or where shootings took place.

    “This was an undercover program that wasn’t properly controlled,” Benitez said.

    A U.S. law enforcement official on the border, who is a defender of the ATF program, said he didn’t know how Mexican officials came up with the casualty figure. “It’s probably just a good political thing to say and how are you going to refute it?” he said.

    Nevertheless, new information is bound to complicate U.S.-Mexico relations at a rocky time. Mexican President Felipe Calderon is already upset at U.S. Ambassador Carlos Pascual over a series of leaked diplomatic cables citing shortcomings in Mexico’s four-year-old war against drug cartels.

    Mexicans politicians have blasted the ATF program as a violation of Mexico’s sovereignty and evidence of U.S. arrogance toward its southern neighbor.

    If Obama would of blasted Mexico back with illegals are a violation of America’s sovereignty and evidence of Mexico’s arrogance toward its northen neighbor.. “What happens if next time they need to introduce trained assassins or nuclear weapons?” Mexico why don’t we fence in the entire border, put troops down there to ease away your concerns, we will lock down the border, not need to worry about trained assassins or nuclear weapons.

    I am sorry you are sick, be better soon.

    Independence Day in Wisconsin!

    The people of Wisconsin have reestablished their freedom to work, freedom to associate, freedom from Democratic Party wage garnishments and have contributed to eliminating the financial burdens being placed on their children and grandchildren. Hooraah! The public employees “right” to negotiate for wages and benefits with other public employees without risk (revenue, cost or performance) by expecting the Government and taxpayer to borrow if necessary to meet the requirements of these negotiations - has been put in abeyance. Business will flow into Wisconsin, jobs will be created, public revenues will increase and wealth will be created. in the middle class.

    Re; Wisconsin, if weak kneed politicians hadn’t caved into demands in the past there would have been no need to abolish collective bargaining. As it stands Walker will be a one termer if he survives a recall and WI will be solidly D in 2012.

    @ Harry

    Point taken, but don’t you think the risk to the unions nation-wide if a recall looses is much geater than the risk to Wisconsin or to Walker. If the unions really put all their eggs into this recall basket, the Tea-party will also gain strength in Wisconsin and going into 2012.

    Why unions don’t work:

    I have a friend who taught in Michigan schools for 8 years. She retired after that, with full benefits, and has been living on that union pension for four decades now. Her union assured her that her hardwork of 8 years had earned her full retirement through the Michigan Teachers’ Union.

    We should all be so lucky!

    @ Harry, SALT LAKE CITY — Several Latino groups are calling on their community to not shop at any Utah stores for two weeks in protest of an enforcement-only illegal immigration bill.

    “We are not going to buy anything for 15 days,” Jose Gutierrez, president of the Utah Hispanic Latino Coalition, said Thursday.

    The boycott is planned for March 14 to March 28. In addition, he called on Latinos to withdraw their money from banks during that period “to show we make a difference” in the state’s economy.

    “We are showing you we are important,” Guiterrez said.

    Speaking in the Capitol rotunda, the groups urged Gov. Gary Herbert to veto HB497.

    “We feel we need to do something to attract attention to the fact that we’re unhappy and an integral part of this state,” said Archie Archuleta, Utah La Raza chairman.

    Archuleta said he didn’t know how many people would participate, but more than 150 attended a meeting this week to organize the boycott. Word also is spreading via e-mail, he said.

    Mexican nationals and immigrants own 1,834 businesses in Utah accounting for $227 million in annual sales, according to a recent letter several local economists distributed through the Salt Lake Chamber. Mexican immigrants own property valued at $984 million and have an estimated purchasing power exceeding $1 billion.


    Encouragingly, though, several conservative states have rejected Arizona-style bills this year. Reform advocates are at work on versions of the Utah Compact in Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, Maine, Washington, Idaho and Oregon.

    Obama told Arizona Jan Brewer who signed the state’s controversial immigration law that it was unconstitutional because it stepped on federal laws governing immigration.Yet Obama & Holder have not directed their attention to Utah,to say that their controversial immigration law is unconstitutional because it steps on federal laws governing immigration at Utah,they are making their own guest worker program, Utah is also allowing under the amnesty, bill HB469 would create a sponsorship program in the Utah Department of Public Safety allowing residents to sponsor up to two individuals or a family from a foreign country to live in Utah. The sponsor would assume financial responsibility for the immigrants. Utah has passed the same type of amnesty, that was rejected by congress. By 2012 Obama will have lawsuits pending all across America, in that respect it conveys,Obama is busy attacking the American people, he is suppose to be working for.

    Ahhhhh the nice warm weather is here, time to open up the house and let it air out. Just have to get my muffs out of my range bag so I don’t have to hear the ever present blaring obnoxious hispanic music.

    The new norm right? A small price to pay to have a diverse community, heeheehee… Oh well, they’ll quite down in November, except for the weekends.

    Anyone notice how Ray Utz is making money teaching a real estate course to realtors? After sheparding residential rezonings through the BOCS he now makes money teaching realtors how to move those same properties he had a part in making available.

    Next time Utz recommends the BOCS rezone agricultural land to residential they ought to ask him whether he intends to use that decision to later earn extra income.
