Zetas invade ranches near Laredo, Texas?

updated again at 2250

Since early this morning, and all day long while I was composing the Memorial Report posted below this one, I have been receiving calls and e-mail reports such as the following:

"Heads up.  Details are just coming in from LE sources on the scene in Laredo, TX.  This happened Thursday night and the Mexican Zetas are still occupying the U.S. ranches.  Very little in the media so far.  Nuevo Laredo on the Mexican side is in full lockdown from the Zetas who are telling everyone in the city to stay inside their homes.  All out civil war in that city with grenade launcher attacks and constant gun battles with the police and Mexican forces.
Standby for updates.  The source says the U.S. military is needed NOW on the border in TX!  He says he considers this to be an "act of war".  Border Patrol is monitoring the situation closely with all assets."

Various sources claim to confirm this and the initial report appears to have come from Jeff Schwilk of the San Diego Minutemen, a person I know and have no reason not to believe. Here are some links purporting to confirm this invasion:

 I have also been getting a few e-mails saying the story is bogus and as of 1738 the Laredo Morning Times Online continues to report that officials know nothing of this takeover by the Zetas:

And the Webb County Sheriff won't confirm or deny either:

"The ranches are said to be "near Mines Rd. and Minerales Annex Rd about 10 miles NW of I-35".

According to Mr Schwilk:
"I can personally vouch that this info came in late last night from a reliable source.. (text deleted for the sake of  securityC1) There is currently a standoff between the unknown size Zeta forces and U.S. Border Patrol and local law enforcement on two ranches on our side of the Rio Grande. The source tells us he considers this an "act of war" and that the military is needed on the border now!"

As of 2250 24JUL10 the jury is still out and I cannot verify whether or not this story is true.  I know that if it is an accurate report the Obama Administration's lap dog media will willingly do their best to cover it up. I will continue to monitor this situation and report as often as I can.  I apologize for not being able to make all the links on this page work.  Please copy and past them into your browser.   Any information you receive please e-mail it to me at
