Mexican Presidential Race Front-runner Blames Corruption For President Trump’s Perspective…

The next president of Mexico, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, or “AM LO” as he is known locally, is a well known Marxist.  AM LO is virtually certain to be the winner of the July 1st Mexican election.  The U.S. will have a Hugo Chavez ideologue at our southern border.

Today, front-runner AM LO told an audience in Rosarito (Baja California peninsula) that President Trump’s bad experiences investing in Mexico, and encountering corrupt officials throughout government, were likely the reason for his negative view of the country.

“[Trump] invested here in Rosarito and also in Cozumel, Quintana Roo, and because of Mexico’s corrupt governments he had to leave,” Lopez Obrador said. “That’s why he got a bad impression of our country.”  (Reuters link)

AM LO went on to say his national government would eliminate the decades-long corruption within government and the judicial system.  Keep eyes-wide-open; once in office AM LO will likely repeat Chavez/Maduro and remove blocks to his agenda including legislative opposition, elections and eventually term limits.

        Oh so true, Joe. Frankly, I was surprised that Obrador Deceiver said what he did say.
        I have had many experiences with the Mexican people, all of them were great. I had one scary bad experience with Corruptocrats that put me in the situation where I was the unfortunate Americano that was illegally in Mexico for about a week, until I got it fixed. It wasn’t my fault. I had to go and point out the corruption to try to save my hide. I did my part, when entering their country, but the Corruptocrats failed to do their part. That is not a good situation find yourself in a country like that. That was my final trip to Mexico.

        The road ahead for the Mexican people is going to be a rough one.

        That’s the big question–is LMAO (h/t olderwiser21–great!) a Marxist or maybe a Stalinist? Some nations/cultures desperately need brutal strong men to keep the wolves under control and to herd the sheep. Perhaps that’s what MX needs for a decade or so. While I will not hold my breath for any positive results from LMAO’s election, I think it’s very interesting that his read on PDJT seems based on a history of business ventures that could’ve been good for all parties, but didn’t work out due to MX corruption, not b/c PDJT is a big orange meany or b/c CNN/NYSlimes/Univision said anonymous said PDJT told some other anonymous crank he be h8in’ on Latinos. All Latin American countries/cultures aren’t the same. MX is not VE and hopefully won’t be.

                Don’t think this statement about dual citizenship is correct or at least is lacking key facts. A person born of one UK citizen parent and one USA citizen parent on USA soil (but not if there solely on an assignment from UK government, like a diplomat) would be able, but not mandated, to have USA citizenship under the old naturalization act, like an “anchor baby.” That is not the same as natural born citizen status. A strict USA NBC has absolutely no other citizenship available than USA citizenship at birth (i.e., both parents USA citizens and born on USA soil). This has all been extremely thoroughly discussed and well documented for nearly a decade now. The question of whether one USA citizen parent can confer NBC status on their child, born on USA soil, is really the only possible bit of gray, but if that child is declared with dual citizenship, it gets clearer that he/she isn’t USA NBC, the whole point being completely undivided loyalty. It is beyond me why such simple concepts continue to get so twisted up.

      Our President is absolutely right about Mexico 🇲🇽. The place is a hell hole we need to barricade in with our beautiful WALL!

      From the article linked above:

      Mexico has recorded its highest homicide rate in years, with the government’s interior ministry reporting there were 29,168 murders in 2017, more than in 2011 at the peak of Mexico’s drug cartel-stoked violence.

      The death toll is Mexico’s highest since the government began keeping records in 1997, and shot past 2011’s tally of 27,213 homicides, the Associated Press reports. According to the Interior Department, Mexico’s homicide rate this past year equated with 20.5 murders per 100,000 residents; in 2011, that figure was 19.4.

      Mexico President Enrique Pena Nieto had campaigned pledging to end the epidemic of drug cartel violence that plagued the country between 2006 and 2012, but his administration saw only a temporary dip in homicides between 2012 and 2014.

    No, MLO, the reason Trump has a negative impression of Mexico is because it is not any better than a shithole country and if a wall was built to keep the millions of illegals from escaping the shithole country, maybe they would over throw the corrupt officials.

That would obviously make leftist heads start exploding on this side of the border, besides the sheer irony of a Marxist true-believer down south upsetting the Marxist plans of his compatriots up north.

    Does anyone really think that the cartels who have the army and police in their pockets will let Obrador make Mexico into Venezuela? I mean seriously, Mexico is almost as poor as Yemen and Venezuela was far from it when Chavez took over in the late 1990s.

    What wealth from their tiny middle class is there to rob from? Not much.

    What a lot of us don’t see is that there is no comparison between the US and Mexico. For years, Mexico has been plagued with the government and legal system have been owned by those in power- i.e.. rich or cartel. The people have zero power. AMLO is a Mexican nationalist. He’s telling the people who are fed up with the current political abomination that Mexico is that he’s going to change it. Is that winning potential votes? Absolutely. Will his rhetoric succeed in making real change- doubtful. He’ll likely see a bullet before he can have chance.

    Good luck with that. You have corruption everywhere you look.
    The local police and the local Government are totally corrupt and it just gets worse further up the food chain from there.

    The Wall needs to expedited. Every man, woman and child should be sent to lend a hand.
    We may even have to consider putting more troops on the border.
    Unless anybody thinks that the Cartels will just go away and close shop, things are going to get ugly fast.
    The money to support that drug operation has to come from somewhere.

    You can expect more drugs crossing the border. More money going back into Mexico and more violence to get that accomplished.
    On the Mexican side you can expect new all time records for murder that will make 29k look like the good old days.

    99% of the Mexicans are decent hard working people. They are exasperated by their version of the swamp. Unfortunately they don’t have a DJT like we do. Their political infrastructure is rotten to the core the rich and the corrupt prosper. The Mexicans have historically rallied behind a rural underdog type savior, be it a Poncho Villa, a Zapata or a Benito Juarez. I’d go so far as to say that many of the earlier versions of the drug cartel leaders could be lumped into this category (Jesus Malverde is an example of the sainthood betrothed by this early narco outlaw). They are looking for a Robin Hood to stick it to the man. The Mexican govt is sick sick sick. The people desperately need a change, but like I said they don’t have a Trump, this is why they are going for a socialist. They don’t know the trouble they’re getting themselves into, they are looking for an immediate end to the corruption. I know it won’t be any better for them, in fact it’s going to be worse, but in their desperation they are gasping and grasping for a straw.

    They restricted citizens with guns into oblivion in 1971, it was a slow race to the bottom ever since. From WIKI: As a result of the changes to Article 10 of the Mexican Constitution( in 1971) and the enactment of the Federal Law of Firearms and Explosives, openly carrying a firearm or carrying a concealed weapon in public is virtually forbidden to private citizens, unless explicitly authorized by the Secretariat of National Defense (SEDENA). For purposes of personal protection, firearms are only permitted within the place of residence and of the type and caliber permitted by law. (You are under house arrest until you leave the home without your firearm: good luck with that).

    On the other hand, those seeking asylum in the US will have a more legitimate claim — “poverty asylum” is not a legitimate claim and I very much hope any policy or regulatory basis for that claim has already been removed under Trump.

      Mexico is oil but it’s a great many other things as well. “Remittances” are monies in some liquid state moving from the US to Mexico which are ostensibly family members sending money across the border. What a great portion of this may well be is cash for the drugs which are being sent over into the US. But as had been point out here long ago, in the Mexican economy, remittances have now eclipsed the Mexican petroleum trade.

      That’s a big deal. Once they go full-communist, the USA will have a very big problem. As I attempted to point out above, when Mexico starts starving and murdering people, every illegal alien from Mexico becomes a justifiable asylum seeker by the most fundamental and traditional definitions.

      That’s a HUGE problem where it comes to legalizing the illegals.
