MONTERREY, Mexico (AP) — Forty-nine bodies, at least some of them mutilated, were found Sunday dumped on a highway connecting the northern Mexican metropolis of Monterrey to the U.S. border, officials said.
A law enforcement official said the bodies of 43 men and six women were found in the town of San Juan on the non-toll highway to the border city of Reynosa at about 4 a.m. (5 a.m. EDT; 0900 GMT), but officials were still investigating.
Authorities closed off the highway, blocking the way for hundreds of motorists, as federal and state police, joined by Mexican troops, sealed off the scene.
The law enforcement official asked that his name not be used because he was not authorized to release the information. The details, however, match reports in Mexican news media.
The discovery echoes several other recent cases in which drug gangs have left bodies scattered in public places as warnings to rivals. Thirty-five bodies were left at a freeway overpass in the city of Veracruz in September. Twenty-six were found in November in Guadalajara. So far this month, 23 bodies were found dumped or hanging in the city of Nuevo Laredo and 18 were found along a highway south of Guadalajara.

If any good can come of the horror in Tucson, it will be that this becomes a McKinley moment for Sarah Palin and her chief spokesman, Glenn Beck. One hundred and ten years ago, during another low point in the nation’s political discourse, newspapers owned by William Randolph Hearst — who was angling for a presidential run in 1904 — published a pair of columns fantasizing about violence against President William McKinley.

Excerpt from: Palin And Beck Deserve Heat Over Shootings
Immediate Release (Palm Beach Gardens, FL) South Florida Tea Party (SFTP) and Florida Tea Party Patriots (FLTPP) are shocked and horrified at the shooting of Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and 17 other people that were shot today at an event near Tucson.
SFTP & FLTPP consider the shooting today as the actions of a mad man. We,as Americans, must not tolerate these irrational and heinous acts of mad men. Single acts of violence of crazy people should not be considered the general rule of how citizens communicate with their elected officials. We must remember this is an exception to the how Americans interact with their elected officials.
SFTP & FLTPP call on all community leaders to condemn violence and assist people in seeking help who they come into contact with that may be having violent thoughts toward themselves or others.
SFTP & FLTPP condemn all violent rhetoric and has a zero tolerance toward violence. The tea party has consistently condemned statements and acts of violence both on the right and left. It was just last year that SFTP and tea party groups condemned the violent threats of the fake political TEA Party headed by Doug Guetzloe, Fred O’Neil, and Peg Dunmire. Tea party leaders all over the Florida stand united against the bulling attempts of the fake political TEA Party.
“I just spent this past week meeting with members on both sides of Congress on this week,” Everett Wilkinson, State Coordinator for Tea Party Patriots and Chairman of South Florida Tea Party. “I am sick to my stomach that someone would shoot a Member of Congress and fellow citizens. Violence is intolerable, be it from the Left or Right.”
Our hope is that this heinous act will affect a positive change between the interaction between elected officials and their constituents.
We are asking members and the public to pray for the shooting victims and their families. In addition we are also praying for the safety of Congressmen, Senators, President Obama and other elected officials in the aftermath of this shooting.

Remember all the stories recently that focused on the violence of the tea party movement, even though there has never been one single instance of violence by a tea party attendee? Remember Nancy Pelosi’s face being plastered all over the news for days as she tears up over the “angry rhetoric” of the tea party movement?
You will not see much, if any, coverage of this event that took place in North Carolina this week, which makes it clear to anyone who’s paying attention that the corrupt mainstream media is a far greater threat to the future of America than the Progressive left!
As for it being a black man that is punching a white man, that is insignificant – it’s only a story in America if it were the reverse.
It’s not surprising that the media continue to promote the agenda of the Progressive left, and that it covers for the far left when they’re exposed for their hatred and corruption, after all, there is a shared ideology at play.
What is surprising is that YOU, the American public, continue to tolerate this! What will it take???
