2…………> Drug Kingpin: Life In Prison
Earlier today, Eliu Elixander Lorenzana-Cordon, 46, previously residing in La Reforma, Guatemala, was sentenced to life in prison after he was found guilty of conspiring to illegally import into the United States and distribute multi-ton quantities of cocaine.
“Lorenzana-Cordon was a leader of a major international drug trafficking organization with close ties to the Sinaloa Cartel, one of the most violent and sophisticated transnational criminal organizations operating in the world today,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Cronan. “In that capacity, Lorenzana-Cordon was responsible for receiving and distributing tons of cocaine destined for the United States, where it would be sold on our streets, causing untold harm to our communities and the lives of our citizens. This sentence sends an unmistakable message that the Department will continue to relentlessly pursue and prosecute international drug traffickers who endeavor to send drugs to the United States, wherever they may be.”
“Global criminal networks operate every day through drug trafficking and violence to assault the rule of law in the United States and around the world,” said Special Agent in Charge Donovan. “DEA and our foreign counterparts have worked tirelessly to ensure that Lorenzana-Cordon would spend a significant portion of his life in a U.S. prison cell for his crimes against our great country.”

4…………> (Beautiful Friendship)^2T: Trumbull & Trump
According to Australian author Stan Grant, “Eleanor Roosevelt is reputed to have said that great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people.”
Enter Malcolm Turnbull meeting with Donald Trump, amid the world’s turmoil amplified by the “Fake News” media and “New World Disorder” globalist political class: what events will they talk about?
The choices are many, and challenges are staggering: A nuclear confrontation with Comrade Un, the hand-picked “pitbull” Mr.Xi’s ever more powerful and domineering China; the re-birth of global fascism and populist politics; a re-invention of “Cement Curtain” p.k.a “Iron Curtain” to keep the undesirables out; rising xenophobia and nationalism in a hasty retreat from global trade into protectionist policies; and the potential collapse of Europe.
The cries of resurgent tribalism, sectarianism, amplified by Mr. Trump not so encouraging remarks of the future of the world, like, “The world is a mess… it couldn’t get any angrier, and “American Carnage” could not have lifted the global poker game stakes any higher.
Yet none of the 24/7 talking heads on the polar opposite of the so-called “TV Networks” spectrum have ever mentioned the outrage of the Central banks that have de-facto instilled a “New World Order” by controlling worlds’ economy, with or without taking into account what Mr. Trump or Mr. Turnbull’sthey or their constitutions have to say.
