Cuidado en Rancho Grande, Bahia San Luis Gonzaga - Yikes ! Second Day of the Baja Beach Fest With Thousands Attending, And No One Is Wearing A Mask: A Veritable "Lemming Crusade" - "The DeltaVariant Of Global Stupidity" By John Feffert !



Although right now, the temperature is running 90 degrees with no shade, so I'm unsure how many folks would be off to camping on the beautiful Sea Of Cortez... but it didn't work out to good for these guys:

" ENSENADA.- Armed men stole approximately 2 million pesos from the Sonora Prime agricultural package in the town of Ojos Negros, Ensenada municipality; the money was from payroll to pay workers.

Authorities reported that the robbery occurred around 8:40 a.m. on Saturday, August 14, when two men arrived at the pumpkin packaging, threatened the employees and took the money.

The Municipal Public Security Directorate did not report detained persons.

THREE AMERICAN TRUCKS STOLE WITH VIOLENCE

Three American vehicles that were in Rancho Grande, San Luis Gonzaga , were violently stripped from their owners at gunpoint.

At approximately 5:00 p.m. it was reported that armed individuals threatened the foreigners and took away a 4Runner truck, a black Tacoma pickup and a black Tahoe pickup.

Unofficially, it is believed that the robbery occurred after the thieves placed a false checkpoint .

Another robbery with similar violence occurred in the early morning of this Saturday, August 14, around 2:00 a.m.

Six men with long weapons beat the driver of a 2020 GMC Sierra pickup, who was stripped of the unit.

Also this morning, at around 9:30 a.m., a gas station in the Aguajito neighborhood was violently robbed; an armed man stole 3,000 pesos."

So beware of false checkpoints I would say anywhere south of Puertecitos, right ? Or for that matter, false checkpoints anywhere.

Meanwhile, we are still trying to find out if our health insurance covers alternative cortisone injections, if not I'm stuck. Also I have to lower my A1c by half of a point before they can do the knee surgery. The refrigerator turned into a bit of a drama  but after living out of coolers filled with ice for several days all is now well. Horrible humid hot yesterday, today it was still warm but we had a slight breeze.

I'll be back, but to hold you over here are the AP Mexico headlines - note that Biden is sending millions more doses of vaccine to Mexico  which hasn't really been reported by the local press; Mex wanted 3.5 million doses and the US is sending them 8.5 million doses. And jeez how about that lunatic who killed his kids down here in Rosarito ? My question is....what about the wife? Was she going to be the next victim or was she part of it ?I don't think that Mexicans fully grasp the power, sway and dangers of the Q-Anon and other conspiracy elements in the USA, notably that includes the anti-vaxxers.

Update/edit: Well this is going to make you sick...this is the second day of the so-called "Baja Beach Fest" in Rosarito with thousands in attendance and no one is even wearing a mask. Forget about the highway robbers over yonder, this is even more deadly. Yet, the people were basically given the go ahead by the Mayor of Rosarito and we were told that officials would shut the thing down if protocols were not observed...but they did  not shut it down. According to Zeta, the majority of people in attendance are gringos. Mama Mia, check out the pictures:

Sin Respetar Medidas Sanitarias Segundo Dia Del Baja Beach Fest 

 Destacados  -    - domingo, 15 agosto, 2021 12:54 PM

 
"Yesterday afternoon, authorities of the Playas de Rosarito city council declared to verify the areas where the sanitary protocols proposed by organizers and reviewed by the State Secretary of Health, were failing during the realization of the Latin music event Baja Beach Fest 2021 on the beaches of Rosarito, which, on its second day, again gathered a strong crowd, and thousands of attendees could be observed without complying with the order of the strict use of face masks.

 Despite the epidemiological yellow traffic light and with the increase in cases of the COVID-19 Delta variant emerging throughout the country, they still have not withdrawn the endorsement for the cancellation of the urban sound event, which has brought together more than 19 thousand people in its second day under the presentation of the artists Anuel AA, Myke Towers, Mariah, Guaynaa, Lenny Tavarez, Farruko, and where it was verified through stories and images shared through social networks the null healthy distance and lack of use of face masks in the festival, specific points marked by the State Secretary of Health to carry out massive shows.

 In turn, the Secretary of Health of Baja California, Alonso Pérez Rico, in a morning conference on Saturday, pointed out a meeting with the Baja Beach Fest organizers and authorities to make a “team back” about what happened last Friday in the first day of the event and with areas where protocols were failing, in turn he stressed that if they followed the breach of sanitary regulations, they would choose to cancel said event.

“In Baja California we are going to protect the health of our citizens. If the protocols are not being followed, these events cannot take place. We are on trial. It is that simple, if the protocols of the Secretary of Health are not respected, the events cannot be carried out because we have to give priority to health before anything else, ”said Pérez Rico.

For his part, Marco Aurelio Gámez Servín, Coepris State Commissioner highlighted that revisions of the protocols would be carried out on the second day of the massive show, underlining that “as verifiers and with the powers granted to them by the General Health Law of the State , they would see that the protocols that the organizers presented to them to carry out Baja Beach Fest are fulfilled " 

Likewise, he pointed out that the call for attention to organizers would come if a large percentage of the attendees do not comply with the use of face masks, a situation that, from what is observed in different media and social networks, was not fulfilled. It is worth mentioning that Baja Beach Fest 2021 is an outdoor event with 90% of its attendees already vaccinated, however, the massive crowding without healthy distance and the lack of use of a mask by those present once the health filters and security have caused the urban spectacle to be strongly criticized and put before the national focus, despite re-incurring the practice of a “cultural issue”, as described by the mayor of Rosarito Aracely Brown, today the municipality is preparing for the third day with the arrival of the Colombian J. Balvin.


On the other hand, La Feria Rosarito 2021 was another event which once again failed to comply with the rules on sanitation and health protocols with thousands of people crowded under the stage where Enigma Norteño will be presented. Faced with his first offense last week, Pérez Rico announced to the organizers of the following events that they would have to resubmit their "no inconvenience" letter, however, yesterday these protocols were again incurred.

Internationally, another massive spectacle that is in the eye of the hurricane is the 2021 Lollapalooza Music Festival, in Chicago, which was attended by around 395 thousand people during the 4 days of the festival. After its completion, it was recently announced that 203 attendees confirmed to the authorities that they had tested positive for COVID-19. Given the fact and criticism of the show, health authorities mentioned that "There is no evidence that Lollapalooza was a" super contagious "event, said Allison Arwady, commissioner of the Chicago Department of Public Health.

For the moment, Baja Beach Fest 2021 continues with its activities this day while doubts remain whether or not it will take place in its second week, which is scheduled from August 20 to 22."

Well, we all know that the white eyes are simply not coming to Rosarito anymore, the goose who laid the golden egg are the Mexican-Americans, and even though they certainly don't tip as well, they are the last ones the authorities want to to insult.  The show must go on !

Which brings us to this report, borrowed from Juan Cole:

Why is the far right jumping on the anti-vaccination bandwagon?
