t has long been established that cartel activity largely consists of the big three activities of drug trafficking, child-sex-trafficking and gun running. The cartels, which are now a hybrid model of the marriage between Middle East terror groups and the drug cartels have long employed the violent Central American street gangs to carry out political, media and law enforcement assassinations. In Mexico, in the last campaign cycle, 400+ politicians were murdered, an untold number of law enforcement officials were assassinated along with many family members, and journalists were killed at record rates in Mexico. With the importation of fully intact cartels into America, it is only a matter of time until the same behaviors surface inside the United States. Some think, as I am beginning to, that MS-13 has already reared its ugly head and they are likely active in the political assassination game.
