#Fact: Did you know that In January, February and March of 2019, 8,493 people were murdered in #Mexico, they say that this is the most violent first quarter on record that is a jump of 9% above the start of 2018, which was a record at the time.
They also say that the City of "Mexico City" experienced a 46% increase in the number of homicide victims compared to the first quarter of 2018 with that of 2019. #Mexico
I also made a news article on the crime increases in Tijuana the border city to the #US! That 14 people got killed in a 24 hour mark in #Tijuana. sotiridi.com/world/14-peopl…

#Minatitlán: A casi doce horas de la masacre ocurrida en #Veracruz, ninguna autoridad mexicana ha difundido una lista entera con los nombres de los ya catorce muertos, entre ellos un niño, afirma José Luis Velázquez Hernández, periodista de Las Choapas, desde el lugar. #México
Los relatos que circulan de lo que ocurrió es de periodistas que ejercen en #Veracruz y testigos oculares que han difundido los hechos en redes sociales. Repito: ni el @gobiernomx ni el @GobiernoVer han identificado a los cadáveres. #Minatitlán
La masacre ocurrió en una palapa (salón de eventos privado) al lado de la Refinería Lázaro Cárdenas, en #Minatitlán, entre las 21.15 y 21.20 horas. No era una fiesta infantil, era el cumpleaños de Fulvia Salinas. "Una fiesta familiar", cuenta un testigo que declina dar su nombre.

Economists estimate trump's #TradeWar w/ China has already cost U.S. companies & consumers $19.2 billion.

Now U.S. retailers, to avoid drastic price increases in the U.S., purchase products from Tawain, South Korea, Vietnam, & Mexico (thread)

The trump #TradeWar is making #Vietnam a winner-- as "exports rose 12.4% in the 2nd half of 2018...outpacing the five biggest economies in SE Asia"

And co's like Xuan Hoa Vietnam Joint Stock Co. (furniture) have shifted operations from China to Vietnam.

bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
Tawainese companies are also moving out of China to invest in their home country, making #Tawain a winner in the #TrumpTradeWar

He visto cosas que nadie creería. Ataques de periodistas mexicanos contra periodistas mexicanos. Hoy un periodista mexicano se atrevió a preguntar cosas al presidente de México. Y dicen que está mal. Todo eso se perderá, como lágrimas en la lluvia.

#conferenciapresidente
Lo más triste es que hay más gente criticando a @jorgeramosnews, periodistas mexicanos como él, no los reporteros que se levantan todos los días, sino los que opinan mucho.

Nadie les ha enseñado que su oficio consiste en sí, ser incómodo. En ser crítico. Y caer mal (a veces).
¿Saben qué es lo peor de todo? Que me da tristeza que hay más reporteros todos los días en las #conferenciapresidente que ganan menos de 600 dólares al mes -los afortunados- mientras los directivos de esos medios en México les dicen que está mal "interrumpir" al presidente.

It’s a HUGE chess game. Each piece has it’s part. For example, it LOOKS as if Trump is suddenly interested in slamming #Mexico with tariffs instead of building a wall. Think what these tariff will do to Mexico. $25.00 per car. Cars sold around the world. And one cannot exactly
2/ hide the cars one ships. If #Mexico doesn’t fall in line in the next week or so (yes, Trump said YEAR, but look at #NorthKorea ) he effectively watches Mexico go up in smoke. He already froze payments to #ElSalvador #Nicaragua & #Guatemala
3/ This is the same guy who finished off the guys OBAMA was supporting: #ISIS I don’t doubt he will get it all done. But keep in mind there is a lot of distraction going on. Just know the main guy never loses sight of the ball.

Some incredibly good news for the MAGA movement. @POTUS @realDonaldTrump has nominated lawyer Christopher Landau to be the next United States Ambassador to Mexico, replacing former AT&T executive Ed Whitacre who had been the previous candidate. This is good news because
Ed Whitacre is, and has been a "Mexican-deep state" favorite for years on the U.S. side. This was bothering me a lot as I saw Whitacre's name being suggested as the next Ambassador to Mexico -- I hadn't wanted to mention it or risk criticism from my new conservative friends.
I am quite pleased to see @realDonaldTrump's administration figured it out before Whitacre was nominated. If you look back at news releases you'll see the press was reporting Ed Whitacre as the "preferred" pick for Ambassador of Mexico which is spooky, another #deepstate clue.

Mexico has the most substantial military and law enforcement apparatus in Latin America. If they wanted to stop the Central American migrant caravans that have been traversing their country, they could easily do so.

#Mexico is not a poor country. Mexico is a #corrupt country.

Cartels are enemies of both the American people and ordinary Mexican people. In my years of working and traveling throughout Mexico, I met countless business owners in Mexico who had been extorted and terrorized by cartels. Our @POTUS @realDonaldTrump understands this reality.
When and if cartel-driven violence and corruption can be reduced within Mexico, it will have a dramatic effect on the Mexican populous trying to flee their own country. @realDonaldTrump is taking the right steps to protect American sovereignty. It's time for #Mexico to get
serious about implementing anti-corruption measures within their own legislature and state governments. Such a concept might sound so absurd, it's difficult for us as Americans to believe it would be possible. I spoke with politicians in Mexico for many years and as a result

Abro hilo. No hay que descartar que una opción a la que podría recurrir Trump esta semana -en lugar de cerrar la frontera o, lo que sería más realista y probable, el cierre de algunos cruces fronterizos menos congestionados- sea reubicar personal de aduanas y migración ... 1/3
.. a zonas donde hay mayor presencia de transmigrantes centroamericanos y caribeños. Eso le permitiría decir que está atendiendo la “crisis de seguridad nacional” a la vez que presiona a #México creando cuellos de botella con menos personal y turnos de agentes en algunos ... 2/3
.. cruces, y sin echarse la bronca que un cierre total de algunos cruces o puentes le generaría con gobernadores de estados fronterizos de EUA y con su sector privado. Es decir, presión quirúrgica junto con el alcahueteo de su narrativa antimexicana. 3/3

@EricHolder has asked an important question:

#When was #America #ever #great?

I realize that there is a nearly unavoidable tendency to snort and spew one's coffee when they hear or read his question for the first time. But, honestly, isn't it worth the exercise to answer it?
So, @EricHolder, I'm going to do just that, and I'm going to ask my ragtag bag of followers and detractors to contribute as well.

I'm going to offer my evidence of moments of American greatness. And I'm going to ask those that read this thread to do the same.
But wait!

There's more!

I'm going to ask my detractors and antagonists (are you seeing this @fedupaton) to contribute as well, and will welcome from them both moments of greatness and moments of shame.

Importance of #Remittances is significant.
@POTUS @RealDonaldTrump has previously floated the idea of partial to complete #Confiscation or #Tariff on monetary #Remittances to #Mexico and other Latin American/Caribbean Nations from within the US. by illegal immigrants. (1) .
Monetary #Remittances to #Mexico and other Latin American/Caribbean Nations from US. by illegal immigrants by % #GDP in 2016:
Mexico-2%
Honduras and El Salvador-20%
Haiti-25%
@Potus can strike at the heart of these nations influx of cash by allowing illegals to send $ home. (2)
Monetary #Remittances to #Mexico and other Latin American/Caribbean Nations from US. by illegal immigrants make up a significant portion of money going to some of the most corrupt governments in the hemisphere. Foreign aid... (3)

La "sugerencia" de exigir disculpas a #España y al #Vaticano son parte de la conmemoración del año de la reconciliación en 2021 organizado por @BeatrizGMuller.
Esta lamentable idea es tonta por varias razones:
Abro hilo...
@BeatrizGMuller En México continúa la "conquista" por parte de los criollos. Nuestras razas autóctonas mueren en la miseria y en el abandono en pleno 2019 y los gobiernos, incluido el actual, se aprovechan de ellos.
@BeatrizGMuller Ningún presidente se ha disculpado por la masacre de 15 mil Yaquis perpetrada por Porfirio Diaz. A los sobrevivientes los envió como esclavos a plantaciones en el sureste.

A little thread, which I may come back to, for all those #technophobes who blame rise in #suicide on #socialmedia.

First: legit, what rise?
Second: The actual experts do not agree with you, and your fear-mongering is likely causing more harm than good.
cf. Thomas, K, and Gunnell, D. (2010). Suicide in England and Wales 1861–2007: a time-trends analysis. International Journal of Epidemiology, Volume 39, Issue 6, December 2010, Pages 1464–1475.
So, first the data, from #UK (above) and elsewhere (below).

Clearly if this epidemic was *caused* by a *single* factor it would permeate all societies with social media.

Estos cinco años he tenido una relación frecuente con #México, uno de los países más admirables y con más peso de América Latina. Lo he hecho sobre todo como VP de @EP_HumanRights
He encontrado a muchos mexicanos valerosos y entusiastas en la defensa de los #DerechosHumanos y también preocupados por el futuro de su país. Sé que ellos no son como su presidente.
El populismo es una tentación a los dos lados del Atlántico. Por favor, no gastemos nuestras energías en debates estúpidos lanzados para distraer a los ciudadanos.

Have been tweeting about it for months, people...my former boss Janet #Napolitano and her #ArizonaMafia...they were previously involved in weapons trafficking with Mexican Cartels in #FastNFurious, Obama's biggest scandal. Everyone resigned. Still a mystery. Now the Witch Hunt
I'm telling you, all roads are going to lead back to Janet Napolitano's #ArizonaMafia, No-Name McCain, Dennis K. Burke (who I am now suing for defamation in Massachusetts federal court) #Mexico's fingerprints are going to be on the #MuellerReport. It is more proof of
Mexico meddling in U.S. politics like at no point in history. My former colleagues are their enablers, I've been writing about it here on Twitter for more than eight months now and many of my tips have proven true. Open your eyes...#Mexico is more involved than you think. #TRUTH

#Ohr's good buddy Alan Bersin and my former colleague Dennis K. Burke who I am now suing for defamation were in Arizona constantly meeting with McCain and his people while Bersin had a multi-million $$ "consulting" contract on the new Mexico City Airport. Bersin is one of HRC's
best friends and was a Rhodes scholar with Bill Clinton at Oxford, he introduced Bill and Hillary to each other. He was also a director of INTERPOL and Marco Lopez's former boss at CBP, Marco (my former friend and biz. partner ~10 years) is now Carlos Slims's top aide
I have no doubt whatsoever it will surface that Bersin, Burke and others from Janet Napolitano's #ArizonaMafia were involved in promoting or even conceiving the witch hunt on behalf of #Mexico. Ask around in AZ circles to people who know. Start chasing down these leads.

UNHRC votes 23-8 for Pakistan-sponsored resolution endorsing absurd new report of inquiry into Gaza's "peaceful protests."

#BRAVO to those who voted NO:
Australia
Austria
Brazil
Bulgaria
Czech
Fiji
Hungary
Ukraine

#SHAME on #Spain & #Mexico for joining the jackals & voting YES.
But didn't UK & Denmark pledge to oppose?

No, they carefully stated they'd oppose all resolutions under Item 7. In possible coordination with these countries, the Palestinians decided exceptionally to introduce the Gaza Inquiry resolution ('Accountability') under Agenda Item 2.
In 4 other anti-Israeli resolutions adopted today by the ignominious @UN_HRC, these text all introduced under the anti-Israeli Agenda Item 7, #Australia, #Denmark & #Britain voted NO on all. An important statement to the world that it's time to #EndItem7.

Friends, let's not despair. All these developements, while highly hostile and disprespectful of the rights of Arabs, Syrians, Lebanese and Palestinians, are formalising the de facto rogue status of the #US & #Israel in the international community #USrael #Golan #TheGolanIsSyrian

Sobre el evento del día de la #ExpropiaciónPetrolera y el anuncio de la #refinería en #DosBocas: inició con la participación de @rocionahle y el anuncio de la licitación por invitación restringida a 4 empresas:
* Bechtel - Techint
* Worley Parsons - Jacobs
* KBR
* Technip
De éstas 4, sin duda el rival a vencer es Bechtel. Y la contienda a priori Seguro habrá de darse entre Bechtel y KBR.

Sin dejar de lado que, dado su perfil que les da más fortalezas en ingeniería; el consorcio Worley Parsons - Jacobs al seguramente integrar en ejecución...
a un EPC constructor mexicano, eso le sume puntos.
Las 4 empresas, al margen de cualquier otro tema tienen capacidad suficiente para conceptualizar y ejecutar un proyecto como éste.

El segundo tema relevante de la participación de @rocionahle fue...

For years, #Mexico has been learning how to influence American politicians increasing sophistication. Their #1 tool for influencing politics in the U.S. is money, and with their experience in the drug trade, Mexican PRI "dinosaurs" were the architects of methods being used today
to move vast sums of cash in to the American political apparatus. Those who understand the nature of Hispanic American families are aware that Mexican Americans frequently travel to Mexico to visit "friends and family." Such trips are made as often as every week or every
few weeks. What Americans may not be aware of however is that in recent years, Mexican Americans have been tasked with a new kind of duty: To bring cash BACK in to the United States, from Mexico. Sound ridiculous? It's not.

¿Porqué #ConLosJuecesNO? Expongo:
1. La impunidad es la ausencia de castigo. Para castigar al responsable y no a un inocente, se requiere de una investigación profesional. ¿Tenemos investigadores profesionales en #Mexico?
2. Los políticos desconocen el funcionamiento del sistema penal. La mayoría de la población también. Por eso ésta última compra con rapidez las propuestas de pena de muerte y aumento en los castigos.
