Heat Wave Subsided ! Thinking About Going To A Climate Crisis Boot Camp! DN's Interview With "Shut It Down" Author and Activist Lisa Fithian - 196 Executions TIJ For The Month of August




 


I haven't been around due to the outrageous heat and humidity which just knocked me for a loop this time around (I'm good for about four hours then I collapse), but we have been following the Climate Crisis discussions.  Also, now we up to eight kittens, the extra four were abandoned by their mother who was either an alcoholic or strung out on  that wild Mexican catnip.  What a disaster! The shelter in RB can't take them, but still going to trap them and have them fixed.

Paris and Daca Bob are coming unglued and acting out due to territorial concerns - wow, kind of like the drugs guys.  Speaking of which I'll return with validation, but looks like last month we had 196 executions just in Tijuana.  Everyone is asking the same questions: Is this an indication of a slow down, or that some sort of an accord has been reached ?  And, these remarks are from neighbors - who are wondering the same about BCS; what gives there and how did that go from blow up in your face violence to tranquility?  What was the deal made and by whom ? Maybe we'll never know.

Are you perhaps wondering why the DNC prohibited discourse on Climate Change|Global Warming during the "debates"?  You will find the answer to your questions here.....plus don't miss all of their reports.....

Ok I'm Still Here.....Mike Fixed It !

But pictures have been taken down of the asshole Trump one right after the other on the sidebar, plus pictures on the blogs themselves, plus blogs are not even showing up. I put some backup on the side bar and added a few new ones.

 I'll try to work on this, despite the facts that I can't see - I don't go in for the cataracts surgery until after the big testing late November, the cortisone shots in my knees in July didn't work out for one knee, so I have to go back next week to find out what's next and meanwhile I can't walk I'm taking the super 800mg of ibuprofen every 8 hours for pain and it is making me sick but I would die if I wasn't taking it and to top it off I'm doing the efudex on my legs so I don't feel real good. Plus I had my shingles shot today and it was horrible hot up in Otay, gads.

At least that is what is happening  using VPN at different locations in the United States; the same things do not happen using my Mexican server.  Still, it's weird.

Update @ 5:08 am:  OK so I waited for Mike to get up and he looked on his US Mobile phone and everything was coming up, all the pictures and all the blogs.  He thinks this is happening on the VPN due to Norton, I don't know what that means.  Anyway, I was thinking well I can't work outside in the yard on my little plants, I can't do anything , I can't walk I'll just try to fix the blog starting tomorrow and over the weekend...but it doesn't look as though I have to do anything. How crazy is this? 

He doesn't think this is sabotage and that's all for now I desperately  need sleep.

~~~~~~~

Update 3:05 pm :  well this isn't good: On my Mexican server (no VPN) the weirdness continues, everything is vanishing. I was so tired I didn't think to download the blog to save it on the Mexican server. Right now I'm in VPN coming from Dallas, and the vanishing act continues.  Haven't been ableto reach Mike to see if the blog is coming up stateside.

The other news here aside from the ongoing slaughter  and violence in the streets which no one up there is talking about  is that Susan had kittens.  She was hiding them but now they are running around.  I'm feeding them on the porch, they are darling and there are six of them.  We are trying to get a hold of the Animal Rescue in Rosarito through Dr. Silva to see if they will take them, of course we'll pay for everything and maybe we can finally catch Susan and have her spade.  Paris love them,  who knows maybe I'll really end up being the cat woman, I'll try to get a pic.

Meanwhile, trying to get a million things done around here on one leg, the H20 will be cut for three days starting tomorrow, here and in Tijuana and Rosarito.  The famous foul smells are seeping up from the beach, but at least there are contamination signs up...after like a zillion years.

Oh and here's a big plus..the music videos I have put up are all ending up switched around and coming up on blogs they were not meant to come up on.  I don't know, I smell a fuckin rat.  Maybe you know who just does not want anyone to know how he was holding Trump's little tiny hands during the Trump attempt to conquer Baja with one of his shitty resorts, ya think ? Pretty weird guy. But wow, the  San Diego Tribune sure loved him.

end edit

~~~~~~

Update 7:28pm:  Okay,on Mike's Samsung mobile phone with ATT service, the blog is coming up normally with all pictures in tack on the blog and on the sidebar. He put it up on the TV through his phone. He told me not to worry or try to adjust anything but I have to wait until Saturday for him to fix this.  He said again that the problem is the Norton Security blocking the blog.  He is going to take off the Norton and put another security thing on.  How this accounts for actual videos being moved around to different still existing blogs don't ask me. But I guess that unless your server is down here in Mexico and  you are using  Nord  VPN you won't even notice what's going on here.

end edit.


~~~~~

Final Update I Hope 08/24 @ 2:43pm:

Mike fixed it !  It was the Norton Security !  There was a conflict between the Norton (which came with computer) and the VPN.  It was not sabotage.  Mike took the Norton off and put a better one on, he was correct.  Unsure when I'll catch up, we're watching the economic meltdown and....

Thank You Mike and to the Los Angeles Daily News for the great China cartoon !

America Under Siege: "We Can No Longer Ignore Trump's Role In Inspiring Mass Shootings" By, Mehdi Hasan

 ~ From The Intercept: and do not miss the comments...Mona is back !

After El Paso, We Can No Longer Ignore Trump's Role In Inspiring Mass Shootings
By, Mehdi Hasan - 08/04/19 



"On Saturday morning, a gunman at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, shot and killed at least 20 people before surrendering to the police. By all accounts, Patrick Crusius, the 21-year-old alleged shooter, is a fan of President Donald Trump and his policies. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, a “Twitter account bearing the suspect’s name contains liked tweets that include a ‘BuildTheWall’ hashtag, a photo using guns to spell out ‘Trump,'” and more.


Incredibly, the nation woke up to more grim news on Sunday, with reports that a man suited up in body armor and bearing a rifle with high-capacity magazines had carried out a rampage in Dayton, Ohio, killing at least nine people and injuring 26.


Little is known yet about the Dayton shooter, but a four-page manifesto authorities believe was written by Crusius and posted shortly before the El Paso attack is full of the kind of hateful rhetoric and ideas that have flourished under Trump.


The manifesto declares the imminent attack “a response to the Hispanic invasion,” accuses Democrats of “pandering to the Hispanic voting bloc,” rails against “traitors,” and condemns “race mixing” and “interracial unions.” “Yet another reason to send them back,” it says.

Sound familiar? The president of the United States — who condemned the El Paso attack on Twitter — has repeatedly referred to an “invasion” at the southern border; condemned Mexican immigrants as “rapists” and Syrian refugees as “snakes”; accused his critics of treason on at least two dozen occasions; and told four elected women of color to “go back” to the “crime infested places from which they came.” (It is worth noting that Crusius, in his alleged manifesto, claims his views “predate” and are unrelated to Trump but then goes on to attack “fake news.”)


That there could be a link between the attacker and the president should come as no surprise. But it might. Over the past four years, both mainstream media organizations and leading Democrats have failed to draw a clear line between Trump’s racist rhetoric and the steadily multiplying acts of domestic terror across the United States. Some of us tried to sound the alarm — but to no avail.


“Cesar Sayoc was not the first Trump supporter who allegedly tried to kill and maim those on the receiving end of Trump’s demonizing rhetoric,” I wrote last October, in the concluding lines of my column on the arrest of the so-called #MAGAbomber. “And, sadly, he won’t be the last.”

How I wish I could have been proven wrong. Yet since the publication of that piece almost a year ago, which listed the names of more than a dozen Trump supporters accused of horrific violence, from the neo-Nazi murderer of Heather Heyer in Charlottesville to the Quebec City mosque shooter, there have been more and more MAGA-inspired attacks. In January, four men were arrested for a plot to attack a small Muslim community in upstate New York — one of them, according to the Daily Beast, “was an avid Trump supporter online, frequently calling for ‘Crooked Hillary’ Clinton to be arrested and urging his followers to watch out for Democratic voter fraud schemes when they cast their ballots for Trump in 2016.”


In March, a far right gunman murdered 51 Muslims in two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand — and left behind a document describing Muslim immigrants as “invaders” and Trump as “a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose.”


And now, this latest massacre in El Paso. Let’s be clear: In an age of rising domestic terrorism cases — the majority of which are motivated by “white supremacist violence,” according to FBI Director Christopher Wray — Trump is nothing less than a threat to our collective security. More and more commentators now refer, for example, to the phenomenon of “stochastic terrorism” — originally defined by an anonymous blogger back in 2011 as “the use of mass communications to incite random actors to carry out violent or terrorist acts that are statistically predictable but individually unpredictable.”


Sounds pretty Trumpian, right? As I wrote in October: “The president may not be pulling the trigger or planting the bomb, but he is enabling much of the hatred behind those acts. He is giving aid and comfort to angry white men by offering them clear targets — and then failing to fully denounce their violence.”


And as I pointed out on CNN earlier this year, there is a simple way for Trump to distance himself from all this: Give a speech denouncing white nationalism and the violence it has produced. Declare it a threat to national security. Loudly disown those who act in his name. Tone down the incendiary rhetoric on race, immigration, and Islam.


Trump, however, has done the exact opposite. In March, in the wake of the Christchurch massacre, the president said he did not consider white nationalism to be a rising threat, dismissing it as a “small group of people.” A month earlier, in February, Trump was asked whether he would moderate his language after a white nationalist Coast Guard officer was arrested over a plot to assassinate leading journalists and Democrats. “I think my language is very nice,” he replied.

In recent weeks, the president has again launched nakedly racist and demagogic attacks on a number of black and brown members of Congress, not to mention the black-majority city of Baltimore. When his cultish supporters responded to his attack on Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., with chants of “send her back,” Trump stood and watched and later referred to them as “patriots.”


So we’re supposed to be surprised or shocked that white nationalist violence is rising on his watch? That hate crimes against almost every minority group have increased since his election to the White House in 2016?


On Tuesday, just days before this latest act of terror in El Paso, the leaders of the Washington National Cathedral issued a scathing, and startlingly prescient, rebuke of Trump:
Make no mistake about it, words matter. And, Mr. Trump’s words are dangerous.
These words are more than a “dog-whistle.” When such violent dehumanizing words come from the President of the United States, they are a clarion call, and give cover, to white supremacists who consider people of color a sub-human “infestation” in America. They serve as a call to action from those people to keep America great by ridding it of such infestation. Violent words lead to violent actions.
Thanks to his hate-filled rhetoric, his relentless incitement of violence, and his refusal to acknowledge the surge in white nationalist terrorism, the president poses a clear and present danger to the people, and especially the minorities, of the United States."

When We'll Know If Trump Means What He Says About Supremacy
by, Frida Ghitis - 08/05/19 

 "Facing a country raw with pain and seething with anger after two more massacres that left dozens dead, President Donald Trump stood in front of a teleprompter and gave a fairly good speech Monday. It was commendable that the President unequivocally declared, "In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy."


On the surface it was a call for national unity against bigotry. But the implicit — perhaps more important message — was that he, too, condemns it.
Amid a groundswell of accusations that Trump's own rhetoric helped fuel the El Paso massacre, the President was telling Americans that he is not a racist, a bigot, a white supremacist.
It is remarkable that we have to feel relief when the President disavows racism. It is astonishing that his disavowal is so hard to believe.
We have heard Trump read the right words from a teleprompter before, only to watch him turn around and retract them shortly thereafter. We will not know if anything has really changed until we hear what he declares to supporters in a rally, or when he speaks extemporaneously.
Just a few days ago, Trump stood before a roaring crowd of adoring supporters who chanted, "Send her back!" as they embraced his racist call for Democratic congresswomen of color to leave the country. Amid the public uproar that followed, and under pressure, Trump claimed he was "not happy" with the chant. The next day he told the truth, defending the crowd and attacking the congresswoman they wanted to deport.
He did the same after neo-Nazi thugs marched in Charlottesville. First, he condemned the KKK and the neo-Nazis, but then he gave us his immortal words, claiming there were "some very fine people on both sides."
By now, Americans know Trump. And they know his effect on the most radical of his followers. A man who mailed pipe bombs to CNN and other targets of Trump's contempt "found light in Donald J. Trump," according to the man's lawyers. The El Paso killer, now being investigated as perpetrating a terrorist attack, is believed to have posted a manifesto using language reminiscent of Trump's warnings about "infestations" and "invasions" of migrants, to explain why he was about to go on a killing rampage, though it said his views predated Trump's presidency.
After national tragedies, it has been one of the jobs of American presidents to comfort, to mourn alongside the people. Trump's 10-minute speech, suffused with many of the right words, sought to officially placed him alongside Americans who are outraged and heartbroken.
But it's not surprising that millions will hear the words with deep skepticism, waiting to see if Trump reverses course when the script is out of reach. We will not know if he really believes what he said until we hear him speaking to another hall filled with devoted followers. We will be watching for the dog whistles in his tweets. Will he issue more racist statements shielded in a thin verbal veneer of plausible deniability?
Trump's speech proposed action to prevent more killings. He suggested imposing the death penalty for hate crimes and talked about the dangers of video games and the Internet. But he didn't offer much in the way of gun control, in contrast with earlier tweets in which he claimed he was prepared to support vigorous background checks for gun buyers.
America suffered hundreds of mass killings before Trump became president. That is the result of out-of-control access to deadly weapons. We know that because other countries have the internet, video games, mental illness and other factors that the NRA and its supporters frequently cite to explain the killings. But only the US has this arsenal of guns and this many gun deaths. (And a Congress refusing to act, as people die.) 
In the past couple of years, something has changed. What used to be random killings have become terrorist attacks, driven by a political ideology.
To stop this wave, the country needs gun control and a determined campaign against the ideology of white supremacy. Trump's speech sounded like an effort to position the President on the right side, against that ideology. But it's too soon to know if we can believe he will not continue to promote it."
~~~~~
Please note Frida, it is not too soon to know if we can believe he will not continue to promote it.  He is a con man, a liar...please get real. I mean, look at his eyes in those videos, he is hating every second and angry he has to read  what he considers trash from a teleprompter, there is no sincerity, none.  Frida, he is a perpetual pathological liar.  Love, Maggie P.S. Look what's up in Gilroy these days.

Quickly Checking In...PGJE: TIJ Stats For July : 233 Intentional Homicides/Executions - TIJ YTD: 1,333 Intentional Homicides/Executions

Bernie.Warren Ticket !! Go Go Go Daddy-o- !



Quickly checking in because the computer just blew out, Mike has it going again but who knows for how long and my eyes are getting worse, blind as a bat. Also, the humidity and heat have really been bothering Princess Paris and need to give her a bathers with Desert Sun, no sulfates !

Just terrified by events in El Paso today, and no one is saying this yet, but have any of you noticed  the targets of this massacre and the Garlic Festival up north were mostly Hispanics ?

Trump The Dangerous Punk Racist

 ~ From The Baltimore Sun

" Finally, while we would not sink to name-calling in the Trumpian manner — or ruefully point out that he failed to spell the congressman’s name correctly (it’s Cummings, not Cumming) — we would tell the most dishonest man to ever occupy the Oval Office, the mocker of war heroes, the gleeful grabber of women’s private parts, the serial bankrupter of businesses, the useful idiot of Vladimir Putin and the guy who insisted there are “good people” among murderous neo-Nazis that he’s still not fooling most Americans into believing he’s even slightly competent in his current post. Or that he possesses a scintilla of integrity. Better to have some vermin living in your neighborhood than to be one."

Tijuana Execution Stats For June & July Revisited - UPDATE 07/22: And It Is A Big Revision : TIJ Had 272 Intentional Homicides During the Month of June - Full Coverage From Zeta - Turning Point with Upcoming Mueller Testimony ?




Let's start with Trump first. Did you catch the headlines on CNN this morning ?

~ From CNN:

'Very Substantial Evidence' Trump Is 'Guilty of High Crimes and Misdemeanors,' House Judiciary Says
By, Kate Sullivan - 07/21/19 


Of course he is guilty, but will he weasel his way out of it as he has done a million times before? Of course he will. Meanwhile, the absolute assault on Trump and his policies continues at a high clip...who knows for sure - maybe Melania will be air lifted out of the White House in a straight jacket after all !!! But sorry, I don't have my fingers crossed.

 The Stats Revisited.....

The last blog,  I posted that Zeta had reported June of this year ended with 217 executions in Tijuana.
Then ,Zeta's  July 17th report stating 132 executed  in Tijuana  so far this month of July bringing the YTD total to 1,231 dead in the city. 

Since the 07/17 report, I have counted 17 more executed in the city, including the three heads and torsos and the Municipal Police officer killed this morning

But according to the Secretariado Ejecutivo del Systema Nacional de Seguridad Publica, June actually ended with 272 executed in Tijuana, a number which far surpasses the PGJE numbers by 55. The point is, it's a lot worse than most of us might have realized with additional executions in Ensenada, and a Ministerial Agent killed in Tecate in the past few days. And, you might be wondering, how many more months from this year alone were we given lower numbers of executions/intentional homicides in an effort just to keep the lid on so to speak? Particularly for the sake of tourism and real estate sales ?

 UPDATE/EDIT 07/22/19:

This morning Carlos Alvarez covers the report from the Secretariado Ejecutivo de Sistema Nacional de Seguridad Publica which has ranked Tijuana in first place nationwide for intentional homicides for the month of June, showing 272 deaths.  This report also presents the percentages of increase/decrease and overall standing of the highest ranking violent states of Mexico from January '19 - June '19.

 ~ From Zeta:

Baja California, Entidad Del Pais Con Mas Homicidios Durante Junio Del 2019
Por, Carlos Alvarez 

"In 18 of the 32 entities of the country there was an increase in the number of victims of murders, while in 14 states there was a detriment in the homicides, during the first semester of 2019, according to figures from the Map of Criminal Incidence in June , released by the Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System (SESNSP).
 
During June, the entities that accumulated the highest number of victims of intentional homicide were Baja California, with 272; Guanajuato, with 248; Chihuahua, with 243; State of Mexico, with 228; Jalisco, with 226; Michoacán, with 175; Guerrero, with 171; Sonora, with 164; Veracruz, with 149, and Mexico City, with 143.
 
On the contrary, the entities that last month had less victims were Yucatán and Baja California Sur, with 2 each; Campeche, with 5; Durango and Aguascalientes, with 8 each, and Querétaro, with 11.
The national monthly average went from 2 thousand 714 victims of intentional homicide during the first semester of last year, to 2 thousand 856 of this, a difference of 142.

 If the trend continues, 2019 will close with more than 34 thousand 200 victims and will displace to 2018 as the most violent year in the modern history of Mexico.
 
Regarding the number of victims of crimes of the common law between January and June, in the 32 entities of the country 17 thousand 138 victims of manslaughter were registered, an increase of 5.21 percent compared to the number of murders that were recorded in the same last year's period, when in total there were 16,288 victims.
 
Of the more than 17 thousand victims of manslaughter recorded during the first six months of this year, in about 71.3 percent of the cases (12 thousand 215 people) were attacked with a firearm. From January to June 2018, of the more than 16,200 murder victims, 11,460 died from a firearm, the equivalent of 70.35 percent of the total.
 
From January to June of 2019 there were 1 million 4 thousand 191 alleged crimes in the Mexican Republic, and only in June throughout the country the figure reached 170 thousand 738, according to the same data of the agency dependent on the Ministry of the Interior (Segob ) of the Federal Government, headed by Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
 
In the first semester of this year 2019, the entity with the highest increase in murders was Nuevo León, where 486 victims of intentional homicide were registered, an increase of 72 percent compared to the same period last year, when it became known of 282 murders.
 
According to SESNSP data, Nuevo León is followed by Sonora, Hidalgo, Morelos and Tabasco, with increases in the number of intentional homicides of 67, 53, 44 and 42 percent, respectively, compared to the first semester of 2018. 

On the contrary, Baja California Sur leads the 14 entities that have registered improvements, since it went from registering 125 murders in the first semester of 2018, to 44 for the same period of the current year, a reduction of 64 percent.
 
Likewise, the State of Mexico and Mexico City recorded the highest delinquency rates in June, registering 28,855 and 19,995 crimes, respectively, followed by Jalisco, with 12,893 crimes, and Guanajuato, with 11,468. , Campeche, Tlaxcala and Nayarit reported the lowest figures of alleged crimes, with 198, 332 and 412.
 
During the first semester of the year EDOMEX and Mexico City also presented the highest figures, with 159 thousand 635 and 123 thousand 403 presumed crimes, followed by Jalisco, Guanajuato, Baja California and Puebla, with 81 thousand 859, 68 thousand 783, 49 thousand 706 and 39 thousand 872 illicit, respectively."

UPDATE/EDIT - 07/23/19: 

But hold on a minute, AMLO downplays the violence in Baja California. Well, if you feel comfortable camping out with your family in San Quintin, or any points north or south of that, by all means just go for it, because the new mantra now is that the violence is only in Tijuana.  When you're down that a way, keep in mind the entire area is the main drug route, and everyone wants to control it.

 ~ From Zeta:

En Tijuana Se "Concentra" Problema De Inseguridad Y Violencia, No En Todp BC, Afirma AMLO
Por, Carlos Alvarez - 07/23/2019


"President Andrés Manuel López Obrador acknowledged Tuesday, that in Tijuana the problem is "insecurity and violence," but that this is not a matter of all of Baja California.
 
"Indeed, in Tijuana, which is not all of Baja California, the problem is insecurity and violence we have more concentrated in Tijuana," said the president during his morning conference at the National Palace.
 
"On Monday, 68 homicides were registered in the country, so the average daily figure dropped," said the Tabasco politician, who added that there are 10 entities that "alter the average number of homicides."
 
The national president said that in Guanajuato, Baja California, the State of Mexico and Veracruz, the crime of manslaughter has decreased.
 
He added that after the rebound in insecurity in Tijuana, his Government is already counteracting him and is studying the deployment of more federal forces in the border city to try to reduce the number of homicides committed on the northern border.
