The Democrats are licking their chops. And, unfortunately for us, even Hillary Clinton is getting in the swing, she is forming an "action group". Just remember Mexico, she was/is for the privitization of oil in Mexico. But wait a minute .... what about this :

Okay, so it's a good thing to get rid of the idiot Trump, but what are we left with? Pence and the rest of the neo-fascist lunatics running the US Government. How do we get rid of them? Mike does not think Trump will be impeached, and I am having doubts. We'll see.

Locally, the executions are intensifying in Tijuana as well as Ensenada and two more in Rosarito Beach. Additionally there have been shoot outs between Municipal Police and members of organized crime as well as an attack on a PEP officer. To bring us up to speed this morning at 8:14 am Frontera reports the official (finally) count of executions in Tijuana this month stands at 80. The YTD total for Tijuana alone stands at 531. Since this report, there have been more killings and more left wounded. I'll be back with more details, the situation is obviously getting worse or at least there has been no improvement.

P.S. Democracy Now ! repeatedly refers to the drug war as "the so-called drug war". What do you think they mean by that? I think they are on to something. BTW, more moves against Jeff Sessions coming up, I hope. Paris is really having a difficult time adolescing. She broke another lamp & when it fell it broke the glass table top of an end table. She doesn't seem to want to discuss her behavior. 🐶
