Daughter of Notorious Mexican Cartel Leader Sentenced for Criminal Violation of the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act The daughter of the leader of the Mexican drug trafficking organization known as the Cartel de Jalisco Nueva Generacion (CJNG), a dual U.S.-Mexican citizen, was sentenced today to 30 months in prison for willfully engaging in financial dealings with Mexican companies that had been identified as specially designated narcotics traffickers by the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Department of the Treasury (OFAC).

Jessica Johanna Oseguera Gonzalez, 34, of Guadalajara, Mexico, pleaded guilty on March 12, 2021. According to court documents, she violated the criminal penalties of the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act (Kingpin Act) by engaging in transactions and dealings in property with six Mexican businesses that had been sanctioned by OFAC as specially designated narcotics traffickers in September 2015 and September 2017. The six businesses were designated for providing material support to the narcotics trafficking activities of the CJNG, which was itself designated by OFAC in April 2015. Oseguera Gonzalez’s father, Nemesio Ruben Oseguera Cervantes, aka “El Mencho,” who is the leader of CJNG, and her uncle, Abigael Gonzalez Valencia, who is the leader of the Los Cuinis drug trafficking organization, were also sanctioned by OFAC in April 2015.

Court documents indicate that Oseguera Gonzalez was an owner of two Mexican companies designated by OFAC, J&P Advertising, S.A. de C.V., and JJGON S.P.R. de R.L. de C.V., and that she was an officer, director, or agent of four additional sanctioned businesses, Las Flores Cabanas, Mizu Sushi Lounge, Tequila Onze Black, and Operadora Los Famosos, S.A. de C.V., doing business as Kenzo Sushi. She remained an owner, officer, director or agent of those entities following their OFAC designations, and did not seek the required license from OFAC to engage in those financial transactions.

“This sentence shows that violating the Treasury Department’s sanctions of businesses and persons tied to foreign drug cartels will not go unpunished,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Nicholas L. McQuaid of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division. “The Kingpin Act is an important tool in the U.S. government’s unrelenting efforts to dismantle drug cartels, and we will not hesitate to prosecute those who support major narcotics traffickers by engaging in conduct that violates the act’s criminal prohibitions.”

“Today’s sentencing of a prominent individual who willfully violated the Kingpin Act to engage in criminal transactions that facilitated the CJNG organization shows our unwavering commitment to bring to justice those who disregard the law and threaten public safety,” said Special Agent in Charge Bill Bodner of the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Los Angeles Field Division. “Those who engage in illicit finance activities to aid the drug cartels that fill our communities with powerful and addictive drugs have no business operating without accountability.”

The Los Angeles Field Division of the Drug Enforcement Administration investigated the case, and the Justice Department particularly thanks the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the Department of the Treasury and the U.S. Marshals Service for their support and contributions to the case.

Trial Attorneys Brett Reynolds, Kaitlin Sahni and Kate Naseef of the Criminal Division’s Narcotic and Dangerous Drug Section prosecuted the case.

This case received significant support from the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) program. The OCDETF program supports investigations around the country to identify, disrupt, dismantle and prosecute high-level members of drug trafficking, weapons trafficking and money laundering organizations and enterprises.

The Board of State Canvassers must certify a voter initiative to repeal the Emergency Powers of Governor Act, the Michigan Supreme Court ruled in a Friday order.

That means that once the board acts on the court's order, the Republican-controlled Legislature can repeal the law with majority votes in each chamber, and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer will be unable to veto the measure.

Resident Biden is looking very unwell, confused, and lost. His wife has to usher him on as someone who relies on his wife to usher him along. I know exactly what confused looks like. I have had a couple of strokes and rely on my wife to help me along sometimes.

In summary, the theory claims to reveal plans by the New (Nazi) World Order, a shadowy organization that conspiracy theorists love to assign responsibility for all sorts of clandestine agendas and strange happenings, to replace the world’s religions with one universal religion. Theorists believe that this is a preliminary step in the New World Order’s quest to establish a global dictatorship under their rule. According to the Project Blue Beam theory, NASA and the United Nations began developing technology that would be able to project images into the sky over the entire Earth. The technology allegedly involved using the satellites orbiting the Earth to project an image that could be seen by an entire nation or even the entire world. What was the purpose of this technology? To create a technologically simulated Second Coming of Christ and convince the world of the veracity of Christianity.
