Retired DEA Agent Writing Fiction Book, ‘Metal Coffins’ about Drug Cartels

By Steve Neavling

When Mike Vigil retired from the DEA in 2014, he was an expert in cracking down on drug cartels in Central America.

Instead of quietly retiring, Vigil has used that experience to write a book, “Deal,” about his time with the DEA. Now Vigil is working his first book of fiction called “Metal Coffins.”

“It talks about two fictional cartels that are in conflict with one another,” Vigil told KRQE. “It talks about the typical corruption, the treacherous nature of these cartels and it also talks about the convergence.”

Vigil believes it’s still going to be a long time to defeat the cartels.

“So even if you take Chapo Guzman down and he’s extradited into the United States,” said Vigil. “The Sinaloa Cartel, because of that horizontal structure, will continue to remain one of the most powerful organizations in Mexico.”

A new book claims Hillary Clinton chucked a Bible at a Secret Service agent’s head.

The allegation is just the latest from Gary Byrne, a former Secret Service agent who protected the Clintons in the White House in the 1990s, The Telegraph reports. 

The book, “Crisis of Character” is set to hit the book shelve next week. The author portrays the Clintons as self-serving and disrespectful toward the Secret Service.

Byrne claims agents were assigned to protect Hillary Clinton as “a form of punishment handed down by passive-aggressive middle management.”

“The First Lady had a different sort of liveliness,” he writes. “She once threw a Bible at an agent on her detail, hitting him in the back of the head.”

A new book written by an ex-Secret Service officer depicts Hillary Clinton as a confrontational, temperamental personality who scared many people around her.

His Firsthand Experience with Hillary, Bill, And How They Operate.”

The author, Gary Byrne, protected Bill Clinton when he was president. Payne wrote that Hillary Clinton was “erratic, uncontrollable and occasionally violent.”

It wasn’t just White House staffers who were afraid of Hillary Clinton, who often screamed obscenities at her husband, the book claims.

The author reports one “violent” encounter between the Clintons.

“Hillary Clinton is now poised to become the Democratic nominee for president of the United States, but she simply lacks the integrity and temperament to serve in the office,” he writes.

Author: Secret Service Agents Found Hillary Clinton to Be a Nightmare to Protect

Hillary Clinton is a nightmare for Secret Service agents responsible for protecting her.

So says Ronald Kessler, an investigative reporter and author of “First Family Detail,” a book that takes readers behind the scenes of Secret Service agents.

“When in public, Hillary smiles and acts graciously,” Kessler explains. “As soon as the cameras are gone, her angry personality, nastiness, and imperiousness become evident.”

Secret Service “agents consider being assigned to her detail a form of punishment,” Kessler concludes. “In fact, agents say being on Hillary Clinton’s detail is the worst duty assignment in the Secret Service.”

“Hillary was very rude to agents, and she didn’t appear to like law enforcement or the military,” former Secret Service agent Lloyd Bulman recalls. “She wouldn’t go over and meet military people or police officers, as most protectees do. She was just really rude to almost everybody. She’d act like she didn’t want you around, like you were beneath her.”

Kessler told the New York Post: “No one would hire such a person to work at a McDonald’s, and yet she is being considered for president of the United States.”

FBI Spied on African American Novelist James Baldwin for More Than Decade

James Baldwin, a famous African American writer, was pursued for more than a decade by the FBI because of paranoia about his politics, according to a new biography, “All the Strangers” by Douglas Field.

Baldwin, who is best known for his novels, “Go Tell It On The Mountain” and “Another Country,” was pursued by the FBI during the era of illegal surveillance, The Intercept reports. 

Intercept writes:

Why did the FBI spy on Baldwin? He was a novelist, essayist and critic, one of the most distinguished writers and thinkers of his time. His skin was black, his sexuality fluid, and his politics tended toward the left, a combination that was enough to turn him into a target for the FBI.

Agents began spying on Baldwin in 1960 because of fears he was “connected to several Communist Party front groups.” His role in civil rights also caught the attention of the FBI.

Bill Plunkett knows a thing or two about criminal investigations.

The former FBI special agent put those skills to use to investigate the death of FBI Special Agent Nelson B. Klein, who was killed in a shootout in Indiana in August 1935.

After scouring hundreds of news articles and FBI files, Plunkett published a book chronicling the life and death of Klein.

The book is called, “The G-man and the Diamond King: A True FBI Crime Story of the 1930s.”

The idea for the book came after Plunkett came across a Klein’s toppled gravestone.

The book chronicles how Klein’s life ended after a run-in with a suspect in a car-theft ring.
