SAFEWISE - The 50 Most Dangerous Cities in America 
Written by 

If you’re looking to put down roots far from the sounds of sirens and stories of crime, you would do well to opt for a town in regions other than the southern United States. This is according to thelatest FBI reportdetailing the most dangerous cities in the country.

Of the fifty most crime-ridden cities on our list, all but fifteen were located east of New Mexico and south of the Mason-Dixon line. Other notable hot spots were Michigan, with six of the fifty most dangerous cities, and New Mexico, with three cities that made our list.

Opioid addictionandloose gun lawsno doubt contribute to the violence in the region. However, lay themap of povertyin the US over that of crime and the two are almost a perfect match.

DEA agents arrive on the scene of a fatal shooting in Florida.
A “superstar” DEA agent secretly fueled a lavish lifestyle by skimming cash from Colombian cocaine traffickers through a multimillion-dollar scam that officials say is turning into one of the worst scandals in the agency’s history, according to a report Tuesday.

Jose Irizarry, who resigned after being recalled from his post in Colombia, was recently identified in court papers as a co-conspirator of a former DEA informant who pleaded guilty to money laundering in Florida, according to the Associated Press.

Profits from the scheme helped Irizarry, 44, buy a Land Rover and a home in Cartagena, the Colombian resort city where he was assignedto combat drug smuggling into the US, current and former law enforcement officials told AP.

SEARCH - From 1945 Until Today - 20 to 30 Million People Killed by the USA.

By Manlio Dinucci

In the summary of its last strategic document – 2018 National Defense Strategy of the United States of America (of which the entire text is classified) – the Pentagon claims that “after the Second World War, the United States and their allies installed a “free and open international order in order to safeguard the freedom of the people from aggression and coercion”, but that “this order is presently undermined by Russia and China, who are violating the principles and rules of international relations”. This is a total reversal of historical reality.

Professor Michel Chossudovsky, director of the Center for Research on Globalization, reminds us that these two countries, listed today as enemies, are those which, when they were allied with the United States during the Second World War, paid the victory over the Nazi-fascist Axis Berlin-Rome-Tokyo with the greatest price in human lives – approximately 26 million from the Soviet Union and 20 million from China, compared with a little more than 400,000 from the United States.

With this preliminary, Chossudovsky introduces to Global Research a documented study by James A. Lucas on the number of people killed by the uninterrupted series of wars, coups d’État and other subversive operations executed by the United States from the end of the War in 1945 until now – a number estimated at 20 to 30 million victims. Approximately twice the number of deaths from the First World War, the centenary of the end of which has just been celebrated in Paris with a Peace Forum.

BBC: Mexico President-Elect Halts Partly Built Airport

Construction site of the new Mexico City International Airport in Texcoco on the outskirts of Mexico City. October 29, 2018 

Foundations for Mexico City's AIrport at Texcoco have already been built

Mr López Obrador, who takes office in December, said money would be used instead to improve existing facilities.

He has been a strong critic of the project which he says is bad for the environment and tainted by corruption.

The referendum was one of Mr. López Obrador's campaign promises.

About one million people took part in the vote over four days, about 1% of the electorate, and critics have alleged cases of people casting multiple ballots.

The estimated cost of the new airport at Texcoco, north-east of the capital, has been put at more than $13bn (£10bn).

GLOBAL RESEARCH: What Happened on the Planes on September 11, 2001? The 9/11 Cell Phone Calls. The 9/11 Commission "Script" was Fabricated.

By Prof. Michel Chossudovsky; September 4, 2018

“We Have Some Planes”

The 9/11 Commission’s Report provides an almost visual description of the Arab hijackers. It depicts in minute detail events occurring inside the cabin of the four hijacked planes.

In the absence of surviving passengers, this “corroborating evidence”, was based on passengers’ cell and air phone conversations with their loved ones. According to the Report, the cockpit voice recorder (CVR) was only recovered in the case of one of the flights (UAL 93).

Focusing on the personal drama of the passengers, the Commission has built much of its narrative around the phone conversations. The Arabs are portrayed with their knives and box cutters, scheming in the name of Allah, to bring down the planes and turn them “into large guided missiles” (Report, Chapter 1).

The Technology of Wireless Transmission

The Report conveys the impression that cell phone ground-to-air communication from high altitude was of reasonably good quality, and that there was no major impediment or obstruction in wireless transmission.

Some of the conversations were with onboard air phones, which contrary to the cell phones provide for good quality transmission. The report does not draw a clear demarcation between the two types of calls.

September 11, 2001: The War Crimes Committed "In the Name of 9/11"
 
 

Millions of people have been misled regarding the causes and consequences of 9/11.

September 11 2001 opens up an era of crisis, upheaval and militarization of American society. The post September 11, 2001 era is marked by the outright criminalization of the US State, including its judicial, foreign policy, national security and intelligence apparatus.

9/11 marks the onslaught of the “Global War on Terrorism” (GWOT), used as a pretext and a justification by the US and its NATO allies to carry out a “war without borders”, a global war of conquest. 

A far-reaching overhaul of US military doctrine was launched in the wake of 9/11.

9/11 was also a stepping stone towards the relentless repeal of civil liberties, the militarization of law enforcement and the inauguration of “Police State USA”.

Manuel Bartlett Díaz...

In a 3-part article series, investigative journalist Charles Bowden offers eyewitness accounts of Bartlett's involvement (along with other senior Mexican political, law enforcement, security and military officials) in the decision to order the kidnap, torture and murder of American DEA officer Enrique S. "Kiki" Camarena in 1985 in order to shut down his successful campaign against the Guadalajara Cartel

In these accounts, cartel figures repeatedly mention they expect Bartlett Díaz to one day become President of Mexico, with the implication that they will prosper as a result.[2] Earlier accounts claimed that DEA suspicions about Bartlett Díaz's involvement in the murder led to the ruling PRI party's refusal to consider him as a presidential candidate, leading to the selection ofCarlos Salinas de Gortari in Díaz's place.

----------------------------------

Blood on the Corn

THE TORTURE BEGINS...

Twice Raul sees a different American agent at Fonseca’s home, the guy who comes for money and packs it in a garment bag. He says he’s there when Max Gomez and Bartlett Díaz come by for the money packed in cardboard boxes and Caro Quintero says, “Here’s your money, now let’s get to work.”

And he’s there at the house on Lope de Vega Street on February 7, 1985, the morning of Camarena’s capture. About 40 people have gathered including Caro Quintero and Félix Gallardo and their bodyguards. DFS personnel and state police also attend. At 12:30 p.m. a man shows up who is known to work at the American consulate and immediately the group focuses on the actual kidnapping of the DEA agent. The consulate figure tells Fonseca’s key henchman that everything is set according to the schedule “I gave you earlier.”
