The Economist brands Mexico's AMLO 'false messiah' but president's supporters find article unoriginal, hypocritical & ridiculous...

Next week Mexicans should vote against their popular president's party because he is a dangerous populist, The Economist has said. The newspaper's hit piece has been met with outrage and ridicule in the country.

On Sunday next week, Mexicans will be electing hundreds of legislators and other state and local officials. They should absolutely not vote for Morena, the party of incumbent president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, popularly known as AMLO. That is the opinion of the British weekly newspaper The Economist, which has just published a highly critical article about the man and his policies.

The piece labeled AMLO "Mexico's false messiah," claiming that he is "a danger to Mexican democracy"and that his power needs to be curtailed. The magazine brought up several arguments to back the stance, saying, for example, that the president "calls a lot of votes, but not always on topics that are best resolved by voting." Holding a referendum to measure public support for a "pet project" or for a decision to prosecute former senior officials on corruption charges is, according to The Economist, "a stunt" and "a mockery of the rule of law."

Mexico's president was also accused of having "disdain for expertise" and "a love of ideas that have been tried and proved not to work" – like pushing private capital out of hydrocarbon extraction, electricity generation and distribution, and railroad transportation, or deploying the military to build infrastructure projects.

The Economist acknowledged that AMLO is not personally corrupt, unlike "much of the ruling class" in Mexico, and has done a lot of good for the have-nots. But nevertheless it said voters have to deny him a parliamentary majority for the remaining three years of his presidential term, because he is "power-hungry." Washington could possibly be of assistance, the piece suggested.

Donald Trump did not care about Mexican democracy. President Joe Biden should make clear that he does… America ought not to turn a blind eye to creeping authoritarianism in its backyard.

Coming from a publication that takes pride in having once been called the "journal that speaks for British millionaires" by Bolshevik leader Vladimir Lenin, the lecture on how Mexico should be governed did not land well.

AMLO himself has said the label given to him was "stupid, false and meddling." Speaking the day after publication, he said The Economist was acting unethically and disrespectfully toward the Mexican people.

"It's like if I were to go to the UK and ask the British people to vote for my friend from the Labour Party,"he explained. AMLO apparently was referring to the former UK Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn, who, incidentally, is not a politician favored by the 'millionaire's journal' either.

a US coup in mexico...

 

El Gobierno de Estados Unidos por fin respondió a la petición de Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) para que suspendiera el financiamiento a organizaciones no gubernamentales en México como Mexicanos Contra la Corrupción y la Impunidad (MCCI) que lideran el empresario Claudio X. González y María Amparo Casar. 

Y su respuesta fue que mantendrá el financiamiento económico a las organizaciones no gubernamentales y equipos periodísticos de investigación del mundo con la finalidad de que se denuncie y se combata la corrupción en los gobiernos, y se promueva “la buena gobernanza”.

.....

 

The United States Government has finally responded to Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO —the 65th president of Mexico since 1 December 2018) 's request to suspend funding for non-governmental organisations in Mexico, such as Mexicans Against Corruption and Impunity (MCCI) led by United States businessman Claudio X. Gonzáles and by María Amparo Casar. [Note: Mexicans Against Corruption and Impunity (MCCI) is considered allied to “a political party”.]

 

 

And Biden's response was that he will maintain funding for non-governmental organisations and investigative journalistic teams around the world in order to denounce and combat corruption in governments, and promote "good governance."

 

 

The announcement was made by two officials from the White House National Security Council, who provided details of the directive and memorandum from the Government of President Joe Biden.

 

According to the first reports of the videoconference held by the National Security Council team, it will be Vice President Kamala Harris who will enforce this measure in the fight against corruption in her next visits to Mexico and Guatemala.

 

"We will see it in this (western) hemisphere, the fight against corruption is an essential part of Vice President Kamala Harris' agenda for her first international trip (to Mexico and Guatemala) next week," the officials stressed.

 

 

 

The journalist Dolia Estévez made public part of the guideline document.

 

 

In the document shown, it can be read that this guideline seeks to strengthen the capacity of national and international institutions to establish global anti-corruption standards and promote financial transparency.

 

 

 

"Strengthening the frameworks of financial institutions to prevent corruption in development financing projects and the fight against money laundering, illicit financing and bribery," points out #"d" of the memorandum.

 

 

In addition, the measure aims to support and strengthen the capacity of civil society, the media and other accountability agents to carry out analytical research on corruption trends, and based on them, promote preventive measures, demand justice and hold governments to account.

 

In the last point made in the image shown by the journalist Estévez that the US Government seeks joint work with “international partners to counteract the strategic corruption of foreign leaders, foreign state companies or affiliates, criminal organisations, transnationals and other foreign actors. and their national collaborators, even closing the loopholes that these actors exploit to interfere in democratic processes ”

 

Last Tuesday AMLO regretted that the United States did not respond to his demand to stop the distribution of resources to organisations such as Mexicanos Contra la Corrupción y la Impunidad (MCCI), by Claudio X. González. And this Wednesday he raised the tone.

 

 

The President said that the US Embassy in Mexico distributes "beans with weevil."

 

 

“Before, nothing was reported, everything was working. Journalism was totally submissive and subordinate while the intellectuals were well-known. What we are seeing now, is that those of the so-called civil society are going to demand money from the US Embassy, that is to say that the Embassy distributes corn with weevils”, he said.

 

And a little less than a month ago, López Obrador said that Mexico will consider interventionism if it is confirmed that a US agency has been funded the MCCI.

 

Claudio X., as he is known colloquially, is the main promoter of the opposition alliance “Va por México”, which unites the National Action Party (PAN), the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) and the Democratic Revolution Party (PRD) in the 2021 elections.

 

 

The president recalled that MCCI has received from the United States Government 50 million pesos since 2018, the year of the beginning of his six-year term, although the amount that was subsequently given indicates that there was only 41 million.

 

“You cannot give money to political groups in another country, the Constitution prohibits it […]. It is interference, it is interventionism, it is a coup,” he added a few hours after he held a meeting with the Vice President of the United States, Kamala Harris.

Andrés Manuel López Obrador is a centre-left President in Mexico, but the USA, even in the (fake) lefty Biden Administration see him as a "socialist". They are trying to unseat him by basically bribing other political parties... This is why the "Economist" and other newspaper are trying to expose him as ineffective against the drug cartels and against Covid-19. Talking of kettles calling pots black: the USA is far more corrupt than Mexico with the use of industry lobbyists — and having Philanthropists financing political parties and US Senators favourite "charities"... 

 

Corruption in the United States is a growing problem across many areas, particularly in the political spectrum. In 2020, Transparency International ranked the United States as the 25th least corrupt country (of 180 countries ranked),[1] falling from 18th since 2016.[2] This ranking places the United States between Bhutan (24) and Chile (26) on corrupt practices in government and other institutions. In 2019, Transparency International stated that the United States is "experiencing threats to its system of checks and balances", along with an "erosion of ethical norms at the highest levels of power".

What is more serious is the "corruption of ideas and ideals" in the USA with orgs such as Qanon and Antifa, and secret/overt CIA manipulations of news...

spying on obrador...

 

The president of Mexico has vowed to open an investigation into reports that members of the previous government had bought Israeli spying software and had used it to spy on the country’s current socialist leader, among others. 

In a speech on Tuesday, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador labeled allegations that the previous administration of President Enrique Peña Nieto spied on him and his associates as “shameful.” 

“They had sophisticated equipment to listen to all phone calls, not only from the person who was the target, but from everyone around them,” he claimed, adding that it wasn’t just him they allegedly spied on, but his wife, children, doctor and dozens more.

Obrador said that he did not believe that the Pegasus contract with Israeli surveillance firm NSO Group still existed, but said the government must investigate the allegations.

The president claimed he could list a hundred things that "used to be done [in Mexico] and are no longer done today,” including corruption, torture and repression, adding that there are no longer massacres or espionage
