Lila Downs on Democracy Now ! With a New Song For Donald Trump - Bertha Zuniga Caceres - Disturbing Reports on ICE

I am working on the execution totals, most likely won't have those ready until the end of this week due to two appointments I have up in the States and more time being spent with Paris training her not to jump (otherwise the leg operation will be pointless if she is jumping when recovering) - but it is not good.  Three days ago, Zeta reported a total of 1,023 (one thousand twenty three) homicides/executions in Baja California since the beginning of this year and that number is increasing daily.

Meanwhile, here are some interesting and informative articles I thought you might like.  The first is the interview with Lila Downs (we are huge fans) on Democracy Now ! with performances of songs from her new album, "Salon, Lagrimas y Deseo".  One, "The Demagogue" is about Donald Trump:

The Demagogue

"LILA DOWNS: [singing] At the edge of the world
Where the factories are
There’s a burning of hatred
That’s crossing the lines

There’s a blue-eyed devil man,
Thinks he’s king of the world
He’s a bully, a salesman
Selling fear and hate

Who do you think you are?
He plays us with his hate
Turns man against man
But it’s really not a game

And I pray to the ancestors’ love
Do not be fooled by this man’s foolish talk
The serpent woke again
In different times and places
There’s a burning cross
Leading the mob
People in chains
He’s a quack circus act creeping from the past
He’s the symbol of the monster we no longer want to be (what we used to be...)
The earth trembles with these names
Mussolini, Adolp Hitler, Pinochet
No respect for woman, no respect for race
No respect for anything that lives, the human race
But he cannot buy our soul

Voy cortando el odio
Voy sembrando amor

De la explotaciĆ³n
Pero es mi casa
La luz de la maƱana
El lugar de mis ancestros
Las flores del desierto

Gonna show that my love
Is much stronger than hate
I’m gonna call on the four winds
I’m gonna change my fate
Gonna rise up singing
Gonna stand for this place
It’s a long time, Mi Gente
And there’s no turning back
There’s no turning back
There’s no turning back"
