FL – Honduras President Brother Arrested In Miami On Drugs Charges

The brother of Honduras President Juan Orlando Hernandez (pictured visiting a prison in his home country) was arrested in Miami for “conspiring to import cocaine” and “related weapons offenses,” according to the US attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York. The news comes at a very unfortunate timing for the country now that some 8,000 Central American migrants from different ‘caravans’ are amassing at the US’s southern border and the White House administration has accused many of them to be involved in criminal activities. Most of the caravans started in Honduras.

Juan Antonio 'Tony' Hernandez is not the first prominent Honduran to be arrested by the Americans in connection with drug smuggling. Earlier this year, three other members of the Honduras parliament were arrested.

Last year, Tony Hernandez was already associated with the Honduran drug cartel Cachiros. A leader of that gang had, during a court case in New York, sworn under oath that the brother of the president was bribed to help drug money laundering. Hernandez himself has always denied contact with the cartel.

Related to this, during the ongoing ‘El Chapo’ trial in New York, the accused also indicated that his crime organization bribed the current and the former Mexican presidents. It thus seems a widespread problem in Central America

<b> Blow for the family</b>

“This is a big blow for the whole family,” claimed the Honduran president in his hometown Gracias speaking to journalists. “I just hope that the US judiciary gives him the opportunity to defend himself. As a family, we will do all we can for him."

The current president of Honduras, a conservative lawyer who came to power in 2014, runs a hard line against drug cartels and street gangs and is supported by the US. His hard policy has led to a decrease in the number of murders, but is criticized by human rights groups.


The former president of Honduras, Mr Porfirio Lobo, in power between 2010 and 2014, was also linked to the Cachiros cartel but has always denied those accusations, saying it was a political conspiracy against his government.

One of his sons was sentenced to 24 years in prison in the US for his help to smuggle cocaine into the country.

Rape is nothing and coward USA would let communist rapist free, which is often banned to speak in redd*t.

US supplied bomb that killed 40 children on Yemen school bus , with smart missiles which are smart enough to recognize and kill easy-to-kill children to show US has balls when being fucked off by hard-to-kill Russians.

​Slow coward failure America likes to make the war as long as possible, already said far far more earlier and banned. Is slow coward USA doing the same thing that USA just waits a few months until China yuan is down 10% to $, then dares to tax 10% on $505 billions, and thus gets 10%-10%=0% in real trade? After all, USA has loved China communists and their ZTE for decades. My English is so bad?

​1, USA shouts that USA would put tariff on $500 billion goods made in China to change anti-freedom trade with China.

2, China devalues (downs) its currency yuan 10% to USA currency $.

3, then USA dares to really put tariff 10%, and gets nothing in real trade because 10%-10%=0%, which means that prices of goods made in China are decreased 10% by means of China government devaluing yuan 10%, and prices of goods made in China are increased 10% by meanings of USA government putting tariff 10% on all, and thus prices in trade not changed in total.

​4, ZTE is always controlled by China communists, and sells anti-freedom system to Iran and Korea, and banned by USA and then supported by USA at last.

Just the first sentence I said, if you cannot read more sentences. "Coward USA is too slow, which would make the war last long and thus make USA fail eventually."

Coward USA is too slow, which would make the war last long and make USA fail. China yuan is already down 4% to USA dollar. So the real tariff in trade would be 10%-4%*500/200=0% for the new 10% tariff on $200 billions of China goods.

Notice: $500 billions is the minimal of goods made in China exported to USA. So China yuan downing (or devaluation of China currency to America currency, now about 4% down) affects more than $500 billions goods exported to USA, but new tariffs expected only affects $200 billions goods exported to USA. So the result of the new tariffs on the whole trade of goods made in China but exported to America here is only 10%-4%*500/200=0%.

Maybe USA can keep torturing Children (news about immigrants) and infants (news about USA believing cow milk is much better than mother milk or breast milk for infants), and make China communists keep stealing $375 billions and millions of American jobs from USA every year, since all these would make America great again.

Is USA a coward failure only shouting 200 billion and shouting 500 billion with doing nothing real while China communists have been keeping beating USA?

The simplest example in life to see the unfair robbery nature of China communists…(rob money from Chinese,rob work from American)

If you transfer money from banks not in China (for example, D) to China bank,Zero fee. But if you transfer back,that's to say, if you transfer money from China bank to banks not in China (for example,D), very high fee. That's the fairness? So, we got to know why China bank would not like fair competition with other banks, and China communists did unfair competition very well. (By the way, there is a little fact : China top four communist banks are the four biggest and richest banks all over the world. )

China bank says: If you transfer money out of mainland,for example, if you transfer money to USA , the fee is 1‰, 50¥ at least for each.And there is also tele fee,150¥ each time. And there also may be other fees. ​ So, if you are a Chinese and want to buy an American goods, you transfer 500¥ to your account outside China, and China bank just simply takes off more than 200¥ from you just because you want to buy an American goods. Moreover, if you take this American goods back to China, you may face high tax by China communists as well. So, we got to know why China goods would not like fair competition with USA goods, and China communists did unfair competition very well. (By the way, there is a little fact: China communists legally steal $375 billions and millions of American jobs from USA in 2017 by anti-freedom trade.) ​And all above here lasts for decades!

Seen in "China government has legally stolen 375.23 billions from USA in a single year…"

We deplore long wedding speeches, eulogies (unless they're really good), and
Oscar acceptance speeches and toasts. Comedians use a whole stack of techniques to produce their plan. Evasion gains that you simply stretch in jail.
