    Mexican President Deletes Instagram Pic with Alleged Cartel Frontman

    Mexican President Deletes Instagram Pic with Alleged Cartel Frontman

    Instagram Enrique Pena Nieto

    Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and his staff appear to be trying to erase all traces of connections with a famous musician recently accused of being a drug cartel frontman.

    This week, Peña Nieto visited the Mexican state of Chiapas and posted on Instagram with singer Julion Alvarez, where the men are seen on a boat. The photograph was deleted soon after the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the Treasury Department announced that Alvarez and Mexican soccer star Rafael Marquez were singled out as alleged cartel frontmen.

    Julio Cesar Alvarez Montelongo, better known as “Julion Alvarez”, and soccer star Rafael “Rafa” Marquez are among 22 Mexican nationals and 43 business entities whose assets in the U.S are now frozen by the Treasury Department, Breitbart Texas reported. Julion Alvarez is considered one of Mexico’s most famous singers in the banda music genre and is known for praising the drug trafficking lifestyle in his music. Despite the type of music that Alvarez performs, in 2015 Peña Nieto called him “a great example for Mexico’s youth”, Mexico’s Proceso reported.

    The connection to Alvarez is the latest scandal to plague Peña Nieto at a time when his popularity continues to plummet after his failure in being able to reign in Mexico’s raging cartel violence. Peña Nieto has also been accused of having Mexican cartel operators funnel illicit funds into his 2012 presidential election campaign in a scandal that became known as Monexgate, Breitbart Texas reported.
    Peña Nieto also received criticism for the accusations that his government misused law enforcement software designed to track down cartel bosses and terrorists to spy on journalists and critics. Peña Nieto and his government continue to deny the allegations.

    Asset forfeiture is a necessary tool to combat Mexican drug cartels. IMO
    U.S. Authorities Target Mexican Soccer Star, Famous Singer As Cartel Frontmen

    One of Mexico’s most famous soccer players and one of the country’s leading recording artists were singled out by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration as being cartel frontmen. The two Mexican stars will now be subject to economic sanctions between American interests.

    Famous Mexican singer Julio Cesar Alvarez Montelongo, better known as “Julion Alvarez” and soccer star Rafael “Rafa” Marquez are among 22 Mexican nationals and 43 business entities assets in the U.S now frozen by the Treasury Department. Julion Alvarez is considered one of Mexico’s most famous singers in the banda music genre and is known for praising the drug trafficking lifestyle in his music. Marquez currently plays for Club Atlas and has been a member of the national squad.


    The seizures came after several long-term investigations by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration into an independent cartel led by Raul Flores Hernandez out of the Mexican state of Jalisco, information released by the DEA revealed.


    Named in U.S. court records as the Flores Drug Trafficking Organization (DTO), the cartel operates in an independent fashion but has strategic working relationships with the leadership of the Sinaloa and the Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generacion. According to the DEA, the Flores Cartel has been quietly operating in Jalisco since the 1980s, as well as in Mexico City.

    The kingpin designation by the Treasury Department targets 22 individuals including Flores, the two Mexican stars, and various members of the Flores Hernandez family. Under that designation, any assets in the U.S. that those individuals possess are frozen and are prohibited in engaging with American interests. According to the DEA, both Julion Alvarez and Rafael Marquez have a longstanding relationship with Flores Hernandez where they have acted as fronts for him and have also held assets on his behalf.

    The Treasury designation also mentions a Mexican soccer club, a Colombian soccer club called Morumbi, multiple casinos, restaurants, bars, clinics, and multiple other businesses in Jalisco and Sinaloa.

    The cartels control Mexico, they control the border, they even control US politicians, law enforcement organizations and US 501 C3 who support illegal immigration.

    While I don't accept that the cartels are the biggest part of the drug business, I do accept they must own some politician.

    When Gov. Bush was running for President, there stories that some drug kingpins where some of thee first people he met with to get backing for his run.

    What stories? I've never heard such a thing and wouldn't believe it if I had, not without proof. Bush may have had his problems but he wasn't a bad sort of person and I certainly don't believe he was in allegiance with the drug cartels.

    No he may not have been but I am sure there are others in government who are, how is it they all come out millionaires when they leave office, they are doing something and you can be sure it does not benefit the American taxpayers.

    Having his picture taken with this guy from the drug cartel is bad enough, and should be an immediate reason for us to immediately stop any further dialog with him. But deleting it is even a lot worse because it shows his guilt. This man lost complete credibility to the citizens of the United States because of this and further dialog with this man should be immediately ceased until a new Mexican president gets sworn in.

    Anything he says from now on, defending illegal aliens in the United States holds no water. This should be known to everyone in this country, and how he supports the Mexican criminals who are poisoning our citizens with their drugs.
