|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:

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:

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.....
