RUSH: So who is killing Texas prosecutors? I think this subject and securing the border might be related in some way. You don't think so? Now, now, now. Wait a second. White supremacists are killing Texas DAs. Yeah. Right. No, of course the first possible explanation would be, and it's from CNN, white supremacist gangs are targeting Texas law enforcement officials.
Now, CNN has that story. "Fears that a white supremacist gang or someone else is targeting Texas law enforcement officials spread Monday to Houston, where the chief prosecutor went under 24-hour protection in the wake of the weekend shooting death of his counterpart in a suburban Dallas county. Kaufman County -- where District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia, died Saturday -- and Harris County were among numerous Texas and federal jurisdictions that participated in a task force targeting the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas."
Now, there's another possibility. The Associated Press has a pretty long piece today, and they make the case that this could be Mexican drug cartels, getting big, getting strong, and infiltrating the country with a big foothold here. Let me read to you from the AP story: "Mexican drug cartels whose operatives once rarely ventured beyond the US border are dispatching some of their most trusted agents to live and work deep inside the United States," somehow making it past the metrics of Senator Chuck Schumer of New York. And now these Mexican drug cartel enforcers have "an emboldened presence that experts believe is meant to tighten their grip on the world's most lucrative narcotics market --" that would be us "-- and maximize profits. Jack Riley, head of the Drug Enforcement Administration's Chicago office, 'It's probably the most serious threat the United States has faced from organized crime.'"
So here are your options. Texas DAs are being murdered. It's either white supremacists or Mexican drug cartels. The Mexican drug cartels, AP's got the details. They used to never -- they didn't want to get anywhere near the actual enforcers. I mean, the cartels would hire local gangbangers as independent contractors, local gangs to do their work. Now they're actually infiltrating the country with their own staff members, with their owned trained assassins. The metrics or whatever it is that Chuck Schumer says we're now keeping the border secure with, or we will, are not stopping these guys.
Now, there has to be a connection here, because over the weekend we had the story of the two prosecutors assassinated and a story about the Mexican drug cartels actually bringing enforcers across the border to live and work in the United States. They're not using freelancers. Well, they still are, but they're also bringing their own staff, as it were. So there are your options, folks. The Texas Aryan Nation on one hand, or Mexican drug cartels on the other. It just depends on the network reporting it, as to which is the more likely of the two responsible for this.
Now, I, El Rushbo, am gonna come down on the side of the drug cartels. I think if anybody is gonna be proven responsible, it will be them. Now, it could well be that they're gonna target the Aryan Nation because that's just the cool thing to do these days. Call 'em Republicans and then it's license to kill and go after 'em. But I don't think you can eliminate the possibility that the drug cartels are sending their own people into the country now to do their bidding and to do their intimidation. And look, down in Houston, the DA's in hiding. The DA and his family are in hiding. So it is a scary circumstance.
Anyway, moving on to gun control. This, I guess, would be related, too. Well, they're killing judges in Mexico, yeah. That's not new, though. But it's just added evidence. If the drug cartels are willing to take out a judge in their own country, they're probably not very reluctant to take out prosecutors here. I mean, everybody in Mexico's afraid of 'em. Nobody really tries to imprison them or punish them. They own everybody. And, hell, let's not forget Fast and Furious. They probably got guns because of us in one instance. Fast and Furious actually ended up arming Mexican drug cartels with guns from gun shops in Arizona.
