Over the weekend we got some video and news of the Mexican Drug cartel in a battle with the Mexican Police. The fire fight happened because the cartel got them to release their leader , the son of El Chapo. Some amazing video came out from people filming on the street and from the cartel hitmen themselves.
One video streamed from inside the vehicle of a Mex Cartel hit man had him showing off a LAW launcher and his MK 48 belt fed. Other video showed a cartel good firing a Barrett at police and the truck with M2 mounted on it above. They were serious about it thats for sure.
Hey, but we don’t need a wall. Walls are racist. Who would pick strawberries for us if we keep these salt of the earth people out? We know only the best of society comes here to integrate with us.
The weekend weather was cool and rainy so of course I went hunting for a few hours. The rain storms jerked a few more leaves off the trees and the sqwacks have started to travel more on the ground so I brought out the rifle. They are still mostly in the trees and most leaves still remain so I may still be using the shotgun till the first hard frost.
The game is now hitting the beech trees pretty heavy. I don’t like trying to spot them in the beech trees but I like it because there is a giant stand of beech trees I can sit and watch with little effort.
The boogaloo in HK continues to grow and grow and grow. So much has happened there over the last week that I would have to spam the website to show it all to you. The protestors willing to boog like 1776 are growing. Below is a screen shot I took from a video shared by a Hk friend on facebook of a group attacking a communist enforcer drone. One HK boog boy takes his baton and you can see another trying to snatch is sidearms from the holster.
After several weeks of peace in Hong Kong, tens of thousands of
protestors took to the streets over the weekend and participated in an
illegal march that led to hundreds of stores trashed, Chinese banks
targeted, and several metro stations firebombed, reported Reuters.
At the start of the weekend, Hong Kong Police denied pro-democracy
protestors the right to march through an upscale shopping district.
Then by Sunday, thousands of black-clothed protesters clashed with
police, exchanging tear gas and petrol bombs that sent the city into
chaos once more.
Protests firebombed the Tsim Sha Tsui police station on the Kowloon peninsula.
There were several other reports that protestors used petrol bombs and targeted metro stations in the city.
Protestors targeted hundreds of shops and even damaged Chinese banks.
While Hong Kong burns this weekend, so is Santiago, Chile; so is Barcelona, Spain, and there are even climate change protests that are starting to get out of control throughout Europe.
Populism is sweeping across the world, and a lot of this anger and
frustration with young people is due to flawed monetary policy by
central banks that have produced the widest wealth gap in the history of
It’s only a matter of time before US millennials figure this out, they too will be marching in the streets once they know the truth as to why they only have a shitty gig-economy job, no savings, and insurmountable student debt.

Increasingly violent protests continue to rage in the Catalonia
region of Spain, with unrest bringing Barcelona to a standstill for a
second day, after some 500,000 pro-independence marchers converged on the city Friday
from other towns and the countryside, following nearly a week of
ongoing protests against Monday’s supreme court verdict sentencing at
least nine Catalan independence leaders to between 9 and 13 years in prison.
Overnight Friday police used riot control measures, including water
cannons and rubber bullets in attempts to disperse the large crowds,
which according to the Associated Press were “throwing cobblestones and flammable bottles, building barricades and setting dozens of bonfires in large garbage bins.”
As the clearest sign of growing violence in the protests, state sources cited around 400 people injured by the end of this week of growing chaos in the streets, many of them police officers.
According to some estimates around 100 security personnel have suffered injuries; however, police were in a number of instances caught on video brutally beating demonstrators.
Friday’s riots were the worst since smaller protests began in the immediate aftermath of Monday’s court sentencing.
Barcelona Mayor Ada Colau made an urgent public appeal for calm: “This cannot continue. Barcelona does not deserve it,” she said on Saturday.
Some protest organizers have blamed ‘infiltrators’ who they say by
and large have been responsible for upping the violence against police
and acts of vandalism.
Catalan interior chief and police authority Miquel Buch told the AP,
“The images of organized violence during the night in Barcelona have
overshadowed the half a million people who demonstrated in a peaceful
and civic manner to show they rejected the verdict.”
Barcelona’s streets looked like a ‘war zone’ into the weekend, with no sign that the unrest will let up.
It was announced by Madrid authorities on Friday that Spain’s civil guard had been deployed to Barcelona streets. The civil guard is essentially a militarized police force which has authority to deploy across the whole country.
Shocking footage showing increasingly
aggressive tactics against activists by Spanish police appears to only
be escalating the violent reactions among young people in the streets.
This dramatic move to give federal bolstering
to the local police came after some 20 major roads in Barcelona were
blocked by the sheer size of protesting crowds, and as local police
couldn’t bring the unrest under control.
Multiple viral social media videos showed police in some cases beating protesters over the head with batons.
Home to about 7.5 million people, the wealthy
and linguistically distinct Catalonia region has its own parliament,
flag, and distinct history; however, Catalan nationalists have long
complained Madrid over-taxes the region for the sake of Spain’s poorer
regions and cities.
The region is responsible for up to a fifth of
Spain’s gross domestic product, by far the biggest share, which has
translated into its leaders long seeking greater autonomy from Madrid.
