In a situation that more resembles a motion picture comedy than a geopolitical crisis, one of Mexico’s legislators is threatening retaliation against the United States including the Mexican law enforcement officers and military branches standing down with regard to fighting terrorists, narco-terrorists and other threats to the American people. He is one of many Mexican leaders who are outraged over the chutzpah of an American President vowing to protect his nation’s people from criminals entering the United States without permission or authorization.
One police officer said the scenario reminded him of the hit Peter Sellers motion picture “The Mouse That Roar,” in which a tiny, insignificant country going bankrupt decides to declare war on the United States, loses the war and collects millions of dollars of U.S. aid to “rebuild” their mismanaged country.

The already poor relationship between the two North American nations appears to have escalated when President Donald Trump — standing with the family survivors of cops and citizens killed by illegal aliens from Mexico — continued his promise to build a security wall for which Mexico will pay and reiterated he’d levy a border tax to finance the project.
Mexico Sen. Armando Ríos Piter — who had to drop out of a campaign for suspicious reasons — threatened the American people with the crime-ridden nation cutting back on cooperating with the Trump administration on fighting terrorism and their stopping their purchase of American corn in retaliation for a border tax President Donald Trump floated this week.
The U.S. news media jumped on Sen. Piter’s threats as if they were covering the poor Mexican government standing up to a bully.
For example, MSNBC staff could hardly hold back their enthusiasm when Piter said he was meeting with other Mexican legislators and government officials to discuss their options to combat the Trump plan to gain control of the borders and control the arrival of foreigners coming into the country illegally.
“We should stop collaborating with the United States, with this hostile administration specifically, regarding security issues, regarding anti-terrorism that we’ve been working together (on) for the last years,” Pitter said.
“I think we will retaliate in the states of the Corn Belt. I think we should start thinking of not buying any more corn to those states,” he also told a smiling news anchor.
Mexico supposedly works with America on problems such as illegal immigration, narcotics trafficking, money laundering, human trafficking, and national security. “The Mexicans give the United States illegal aliens and we give them financial aid, including money for abortions,” noted political strategist and former law enforcement officer Michael Snopes.
And Sen. Piter isn’t as squeaky-clean as the anti-Trump news media would have you believe. According to Foreign Policy: “At 42, Ríos Piter, who goes by the nickname ‘Jaguar’ after the large cat native to Guerrero, has earned his political stripes. His 18-year career has run the gamut of local and federal politics, including a stint as advisor to a former finance minister, a term in each of the houses of congress, and heading up the department of rural development in his home state.
“There, Ríos Piter was the driving force behind important poverty reduction schemes targeting poor communities in the mountainous farmlands — best known for their production of poppy for the lucrative heroin trade — which gained him admiration from the state’s mostly rural population. When, at the start of the year, PRD leadership nominated Ríos Piter for the governorship, it seemed a lifelong political ambition was well within reach.”
Last fall after a Mexican mayor in Piter’s political circle — a crooked member of Piter’s leftist party — ordered the murder of 43 local students, Ríos Piter withdrew from the campaign. “He withdrew, I believe, because he didn’t want to be held up to the scrutiny of a political campaign. Of course, Mexico is a country that routinely sees its journalists, political leaders, military generals and police chiefs assassinated, so perhaps he just didn’t want the people to know about his true corrupt background,” said Snopes.
In the U.S., Democratic politicians are actually supporting Mexico, the illegal aliens and even illegal immigrants who commit violent crimes. The mayors of seven of the largest cities swore to protect illegal immigrants from the Department of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) bureau. However, President Trump who has never displayed any appreciation for threats and political grandstanding, shot back that he would block federal taxpayers’ money for those rebellious “sanctuary cities .”
“This is typical of the Democrats in America. When we faced nuclear war with the Soviet Union, they worried about how many nuclear weapons we had. When faced with riots and looting, they were more concerned about how much physical force police officers exerted, as well as the equipment and vehicles they were using to respond to riots in American neighborhoods. And when we talk about Islamic terrorists or Mexican drug lords, Democrats are concerned about the language we use and the tactics being used by cops. It’s mass hysteria gone mainstream,” said former narc officer and police commander Sanford Thomas Bates.
