Same As It Ever Was...Same As It Ever Was...Same As It Ever Was......

The Anointed One (aka The Ice Queen)- Coming Soon: Similar statues will be available at the border, next to the blankets and Last Supper displays ! Perhaps even with stigmatas !




It seems as though with all of the distress over the U.S. Presidential elections, there has been scant coverage of the drug war in our area and throughout Mexico, at least in English. I am guilty too, but my sweetpeas are coming up !


As a footnote (which is exactly where the promoters would like it to be) towards the very end of July, Zeta reported in Tijuana there have been 479 homicides-executions since the beginning of the year, which is pushing us over the top.  Since that 07/28 report I am counting at least seven more including a partially burned body, assorted attacks and people wounded and an attack on police officers. These numbers are not counting the other Municipalities. Just a few days before that Zeta report, Proceso reported a 19 % increase nationwide in homicides/executions and experts believe these numbers will continue to increase.  Will return to these stats in more detail.


There is going to be a five day cut in the water supply by CESPT while they are repairing water lines. No official date has been given, but it is assumed it will be sometime this month. So I guess all those new houses the developers put in here at SADM without pilas are going to have a rough time. Here is the Sintesis update on the colonias which will be affected.

I complain about the Mexican press not covering in depth the "...extensive coordination and blatant resort to illegal disenfranchise effort of voters" in the Democrat primaries (or rigging) but then when does the corporate media of the U.S. ever really cover in depth the voting irregularities in Mexico ? As far as a truthful investigative report into the DNC's power and control over the corporate media of the United States by the corporate media of the United States and the Clinton influence (it wasn't just Debbie Wasserman Schultz - who directed her what to do, who gave the order...anyway it doesn't matter, Hillary already gave her a new position)   we will never see that one.


Perhaps the best we can hope for is to see if Julian Assange of WikiLeaks really will release more devastating Hillary emails which he believes will be her downfall.  On that note, here are various links to post DNC convention reports which are not making the corporate news headlines:

I love this one:

Robert Scheer knocks it out of the park (again): BTW, check out on the sidebar "Killing the Messenger."

You might have already seen this one over on Alternet:

Cornel West:  Donald Trump Would Be a Neofascist Catastrophe, Hillary Clinton a Neoliberal Disaster


Chris Hedges has been described as "a national treasure"; here he is with Robert Reich who many are convinced is a sellout:

And this looks to be quite interesting, who knows what will happen next - tune in to watch the conversation and don't miss the comments:

Live at Truthdig: What Does the Future Hold For Donald Trump ?


Wow, what if he really does drop out and WikiLeaks brings down the Anointed One ?

~~~~~~~

This is a tough one, I was going to put up the old "Fortune Teller" song, but opted for another, hope it works.  I swear I will be back at some point with the escalating violence of the drug war news, just like everything else - it is the same as it ever was.....

"John Lee Hooker For President"

A Trump Family Reunion !




More of the Trump Family !


Invitations sent out to the Republican National Convention - no shit !

Just a few links to hold ya'll over until I can return to the drug war events and tons more executions in Baja California...so did anyone watch the Donald? Earlier in the day my friend and I were talking and she asked what I thought about the plagiarism of Trump's wife and the original Michelle Obama speech.  I said , "Oh those hillbillies...", to which she replied, "...that is exactly what they are, rich hillbillies !"  She told me the story of when she was younger and her mother worked at the exclusive private school in NYC where the Trump kids would show up in a limousine.  She said: "... in my old neighborhood (the Bronx) the lower middle class Irish and Italians love him." I said, "..but the Clintons are hillbillies too !" Anyway, she is working on new original Jill Stein bumper stickers, but these may not be available until after her trip down to Florida to visit her family. Yep folks, it is on the Republican Platform to build a wall separating the U.S. from Mexico.


  But the other news is that Presidente Pena Nieto flew into Washington D.C. to meet with Obama and discuss more weapons and black hawk purchases and to find out if it was true that Americans just do not trust him...er sorry, I meant to discuss the Hillary strategy which will be the same as the Obama strategy however with more intense militarization not only in Mexico but worldwide..


I'll make this short and sweet...

A longish interview, but worth listening to:

Well, Jill might have a little competition ..... at least in spirit..... be back in a few days......

A note that this is not racist, it is a selection from Ry Cooder's anti-establishment CD released back  in 2011, "Pull Up Some Dust & Sit Down" which rips the establishment.  Speaking of racist, I was going to put a Black Lives Matter bumper sticker on my car and Mike said "...don't do that - you might get shot in San Diego."  Well, maybe.  But what was shocking to me (why I was shocked I don't really know) was the Mexican national in town who said, "Oh the blacks..you need to see how they live in Compton - drugs and guns."  So, the Black Lives Matter movement is not exactly popular down here with many folks.  I wonder how they have reacted to the Republican Party's Platform ?
