Mexico: Gunmen Kill American Consulate Staff.
Obama stomps his feet, is “outraged”.
Gunmen in the drug war-plagued Mexican city of Ciudad Juarez killed two Americans and a Mexican linked to the local U.S. consulate, an attack U.S. President Barack Obama said “outraged” him.
An American woman working at the consulate in Ciudad Juarez, just over the border from El Paso, Texas, and her U.S. husband were fatally shot by suspected drug gang hitmen in broad daylight on Saturday as they left a consulate social event, U.S. and Mexican officials told Reuters.

Mexican Military Helicopter Crosses Rio Grande – Hovers Over Texas Homes.
From The Houston Chronicle:
The Zapata County sheriff Thursday was questioning why a Mexican military helicopter was hovering over homes on the Texas side of the Rio Grande.
Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez said he’d reviewed photos of the chopper flown by armed personnel Tuesday over a residential area known as Falcon Heights-Falcon Village near the binational Falcon Lake, just south of the Starr-Zapata county line. He said the helicopter appeared to have the insignia of the Mexican Navy.
“It’s always been said that the Mexican military does in fact … that there have been incursions,” Gonzalez said. “But this is not New Mexico or Arizona. Here we’ve got a river, there’s a boundary line. And then of course having Falcon Lake, Falcon Dam, it’s a lot wider. It’s not just a trickle of a river, it’s an actual dam. You know where the boundary’s at.”

There’s only one response forthcoming from the collection of Marxist Statist Communist Jihadists comprising the current administration……………..
I bet you that the official White House response will be to exec. order in an “assault weapon ban” for America that will include all ammunition and accessories that could be used with any “assault weapon”.

“The framers of our Constitution knew that the government should never have a monopoly on force, that’s why they articulated our God given right to self defense and ensured the right to keep and bear arms was written in our Bill of Rights. Let’s not forget, George Washington didn’t use his right to free speech to defeat the British, he shot them.”……… ‘Captain Dave’ Funk ; Candidate, Iowa CD-3.
