The Narco Mata

The question that the United States Government asked was, "Who threw the hand grenades at the US Consulate in Guadalajara, Mexico?" It's a fair question.

The official response from the cartel was a narco mata - a sign.

It's not twitter, but it's more like twitter than a lot of other types of communication.

Narco matas are a species of one-way communication from a cartel or from an organization and they consider them official. Sometimes they are written in the blood of a particular enemy so that the DNA will stand as witness that it's genuine. Sometimes there is one or more severed human head. Most often it's written or printed on a white bed sheet. When you're talking about a big cartel like CJNG, they have it printed. After all, these are the genuine rulers of the Republic of Mexico. For the sake of you who don't read Spanish, I have translated it for you (below).
Important notice for part of our Jalisco New Generation Cartel organization
Our Cartel completely and completely disregards what happened in the United States Embassy. We are not responsible for those events nor do we honor the order of any type of attack against that institution. The US Government knows perfectly well who is doing things in order to soil our image as an organization.
El Mencho, Ruben Oseguera Cervantes, author of the mata above, runs the Guadalajara Cartel (CJNG) and he's being pressed by the Mexican Navy (SEMAR), El Cholo - a former employee and the Colima Cartel (also called the Valencia Cartel), run by Eric Valencia (aka 85). He's being pressed and would like the US Government to focus on his enemies rather than him. When you read the language above, he comes off as wounded, reminding the world and more particularly, USGOV, that he has a reputation and an image to uphold... And you can make of all that what you'd like.

Many narcos, including El Mencho, worship Santa Muerte (the Dead Saint/Satan/Beelzebub) and take advice from "dark priests and priestesses". I know that Hillary Clinton is looking for a place to make a difference. I'm sure that she'd find a place of honor, trust and profit running one of those devil cults in Mexico. She'd need to learn Spanish, but that's about it. It's one of the only things that she might do well.

  1. You mean she's not already a dark priestess? It is, after all, her turn.

    1. Ok, she is, but not in Mexico. We need to facilitate the move for her.

    2. Hey, I'm fluent in Spanish. I'd volunteer to teach Hill... for muchos pesos.

    3. To be the narco witch consultant (teaching her to say bad things in Spanish, you'd have to put on a black robe, worship the goat god and drink disgusting things.

      She also needs somebody to tell her that what she's wearing makes her look like goofy and fat. Maybe the fashion consultant job would be better than the narco witch job.

  2. Now this is something I see nowhere else.

    1. You're welcome, Ed. I try to keep it real.

  3. It seems to me that the only way to stay alive in Mexico is to work in the fields or run a tourist business. No wonder they want to get into the US.

    1. It's not a good place to live or work. Some like to go on vacation there, but I wouldn't take anyone that I cared about with me. Not worth the risk.

    2. Nowhere south of the border is safe. There are lots of other vacation spots.

    3. Yes there are. Not in Mexico, and not in Brazil either.

    1. He didn't want it to backfire on him.

      Too late.

  5. First off, - I echo what Ed Bonderenka said - something I see nowhere else, so thanks.

    About the message itself, it seems a lot like, "don't drone me bro'" or "don't send those special operator guys after me".

    1. They've all seen the feature film "Sicario"...

  6. Wow. Can we believe him any more than we believe Killary?
    Still, yes. Thank you for the update.

    1. They have the same sort of credibility. The Narco is likely more honest.

  7. I echo Ed, *Dark Priestess.

    But what happens when Satan discards his worthless plaything? CPL's a case in point, then there's Stormy. To name just two.

    Point being, do we have to lock her up (please) or will the Crone just implode?

    Well, can't come sooner.

  8. I didn't know the narcos had such an elaborate PR machine in place.

    Where I grew up, a "message" usually consisted of a dead fish showing up on your doorstep.
