U.S. Oil Companies partnered with Mexico Drug Cartels to steal $43 Million in Oil from Mexican Government pipelines!

Unbelievable Breaking News: U.S. Oil Companies partnered with Mexico Drug Cartels to steal $43 Million in Oil from Mexican Government pipelines. This article should be on the front page of every newspaper! These oil companies executives should go to prison -- throw away the keys! You wonder where the Drug Cartels received their money? From crooked U.S. Executives!!!
Fort Worth Star Telegram Reports:
MEXICO CITY — U.S. refineries bought millions of dollars worth of oil stolen from Mexican government pipelines and smuggled across the border, the U.S. Justice Department told The Associated Press — illegal operations led by Mexican drug cartels expanding their reach. Criminals, mostly drug gangs, tap remote pipelines, sometimes building pipelines of their own, to siphon hundreds of millions of dollars worth of oil each year, said the Mexican oil monopoly Petroleos Mexicanos, or Pemex. At least one U.S. oil executive has pleaded guilty to conspiracy in such a deal.

The U.S. Homeland Security department is scheduled today to return $2.4 million to Mexico’s tax administration, the first batch of money seized during a binational investigation into smuggled oil that authorities expect to lead to more arrests and seizures. "The United States is working with the Mexican government on the theft of oil," said Nancy Herrera, spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney’s office in Houston. "It’s an ongoing investigation, with one indictment so far."

In that case, Donald Schroeder, president of Houston-based Trammo Petroleum, is scheduled to be sentenced in December after pleading guilty in May. In a $2 million scheme, Schroeder bought stolen Mexican oil that had been brought across the border in trucks and barges and sold it to various U.S. refineries, which she did not identify, Herrera said. Trammo’s tiny firm profited by about $150,000 in the scheme, she said.

Schroeder’s attorneys said in an e-mail that neither they nor their client would respond to AP’s requests for comment. Bill Holbrook, spokesman for the National Petrochemical & Refiners Association, said a single indictment against a small company should not be used to smear the reputation of the entire U.S. oil industry "and is not indicative of how domestic refiners operate." But in Mexico, federal police commissioner Rodrigo Esparza said the Zetas, a fierce drug gang aligned with the Gulf cartel, used false import documents to smuggle at least $46 million worth of oil in tankers to unnamed U.S. refineries.

Mexico froze 149 bank accounts this year in connection with that crime, which continues at a record rate, according to Pemex.

President Calderone's war on drugs and Napolitano's focus on Drug Cartels may be working, especially with these arrests.

It is about time criminals on both sides of the border are caught and face justice.

This is very Paradoxical !

A few bad Americans despise and hate Mexicans or Latinos. As an inferior subspecies of apes .... As a filthy "Third World" that is going to dirt America and produce the overthrow of "Western Civilization" and "God" ... ( God and WC are their exclusive properties )

At the same time other few bad Americans ( criminals ) are eager to bring Mexican Trucks and Mexican Truck Drivers for a criminal racket of stealing and smuggling oil from Mexico.

This is like the famous MinuteWoman that hated and despised Mexicans but had sex with them.

The Economic Forces unite peoples ....

Famous economists tell us that Canada has signed Economic Agreements with some Latin American Countries.

And now Canada exports Wheat, Barley, Oats and many industrial products to those countries without taxes or duties in the importing Latin Country, in better conditions than the United States.

This produces sadness in American Businessmen and Capitalists.

That is why the American Chamber of Commerce, the American Industrial Associations, and Capitalist Organizations of the USA are so fond of "Free Trade" ...

Even if Unions, Racists and Demagogues do not want any Trade Deal with those other nations of the Western Hemisphere.

Dee posted an article about Trade and Commerce of Oil .... I change the subject to the Trade and Commerce of Potatoes :

History of the Sack of Potatoes, Western Civilization, The Scorpion King and "The Rock" wrestler and actor ... and some Racist Fools around us ...

If we work for a better world, with less violence, less Hate and less Racism, then our lives get a lot of meaning and we are not living like a sack of potatoes.

And talking about "sacks of potatoes" I found this in "the Free Dictionary" :

[Middle English, from Old English sacc, from Latin saccus, from Greek sakkos, of Semitic origin; see qq in Semitic roots.]

Word History: The ordinary word sack carries within it a few thousand years of commercial history. Sack, which probably goes back to Middle Eastern antiquity, has a long history because it and its ancestors denoted an object used in trade between various peoples.

Thus the Greeks got their word sakkos, "a bag made out of coarse cloth or hair," from the Phoenicians with whom they traded. We do not know the Phoenician word, but we know words that are akin to it, such as Hebrew aq and Akkadian saqqu. The Greeks then passed the sack, as it were, to the Latin-speaking Romans, who transmitted their word saccus, "a large bag or sack," to the Germanic tribes with whom they traded, who gave it the form *sakkiz (other peoples have also taken this word from Greek or Latin, including speakers of Welsh, Russian, Polish, and Albanian).

The speakers of Old English, a Germanic language, used two forms of the word, sæc, from *sakkiz, and sacc, directly from Latin; the second Old English form is the ancestor of our sack.

So it is reconforting to know that the word "sack" is Semitic and Akkadian like the popular child movies hero "The Scorpion King", with the wrestler actor "The Rock" ...

And so Western Civilization is the work of Many Cultures and Races .... and "Western Civilization" is not the private property of a Racist Little Group ....

And the Bible says : "The number of Fools is Infinite"

There are more fools that descendants from Abraham, he was blessed by Yahweh with more progeny than the stars of Heaven and the sands of the deserts.

In Israel, Texas Governor Rick Perry says a lot of stupid things, bigoted talk to attract Right Wing Conservatives and all Religious Lunatics

The Governor of Texas is well known for saying many foolish things, like talking about independence of the state of Texas from the USA.

In Israel, Perry compares Mexico to Gaza strip

Some excerpts :

TEL AVIV, Israel – Gov. Rick Perry compared Mexico to the Gaza Strip this week, saying Texas can learn from Israeli security efforts after touring a town that has been hit by Palestinian rockets.

Perry, who has demanded a heightened U.S. troop presence along the Rio Grande, went to Israel's border with Gaza and was briefed by Israeli army officials.

"Kassam rockets have killed 28 Israelis over the last eight years. Well, 1,000 people have been killed in Juárez since the beginning of the year," the governor told the Jerusalem Post in Friday's editions, referring to the drug-related killings across the border from El Paso. "So we're trying to find ways to secure that border, because just like it's important to Israelis to keep heavy security on their border with Gaza, it's important to citizens of Texas to keep out the illegal activities that are going on with drugs."

The Gaza-Mexico comparison was far more strident than the tone struck by President Barack Obama on Monday in Guadalajara, Mexico, with the leaders of Mexico and Canada. Obama pledged ongoing support in Mexico's fight with drug cartels.

An aide to Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, Perry's opponent in the March Republican primary, said Perry needed the tutorial on securing the border.

"With one of his signature border initiatives failing to meet almost every goal, we actually agree that Rick Perry has a lot to learn about border security," said Joe Pounder, a Hutchison spokesman. "So far, Rick Perry's done more talking about securing our borders than actually getting results for the people of Texas."

He described his views on Israel in religious terms sure to strike a chord with conservative Republicans.

"I'm a big believer that this country was given to the people of Israel a long time ago, by God, and that's ordained," Perry said, offering prayers and nearly unequivocal support for Israel. That stance puts him at odds with many American policymakers and even much of the Israeli populace, who feel that American prodding has kept Israel's hawks in check.

Besides the Gaza-Mexico comparison, he drew a parallel between Texas' shrine to freedom and an Israeli mountaintop fortress where Jewish zealots held out against a Roman siege before committing mass suicide.

"The comparison between Masada and the Alamo was not lost on me," he said, recalling his first visit to Israel. "We're talking about two groups of people who were willing to give up their lives for freedom and liberty."
