Found this post at FB, quite accurate to describe the options people will have in the next presidential elections in Mexico, I could not avoid laughing about our tragicomedy...

Postmodern guide and practice to decide your vote in 2018:
- If you are in favor of homoparental marriage, sexual rights, and abortion, you must vote for the right, that is, for the PAN and for Anaya. Because those issues are on the agenda of the PRD that is now allied with the PAN in the Front.

- If you are against all that agenda traditionally from the left, that is, if you are in favor of the natural family, in favor of life and in favor of the criminalizing of abortion, you must vote for the left, that is to say, for Morena. Because now Morena shelters the moral agenda of Social Encounter allied with El Peje.

- If you want to vote for the PRI, you must vote for the Bronco, whose PRIist past of the authoritarian, intolerant and misogynist style of Díaz Ordaz constantly persecutes him. You must not vote for the PRI. Why? We explain it in the following point.

- If you want to vote for the PAN, let's say the "most modern" PAN, you have to vote for the PRI that has a non-PRI candidate, and that is in fact of PAN origin.

- But if you want to vote for the most traditional PAN, you must vote for Margarita Zavala, who is no longer a member of the PAN because she fought with Anaya.

- If you are in favor of the privatizations of Salinas, then vote for Morena, in the Peje's cabinet presented nothing less than the father-in-law of Slim's son as secretary of tourism.

- If you are in favor of the poor vote for the right and the PAN and its Front that propose a universal basic income.

- If before the above scenario, you become disenchanted and you want to overcome the depression, you can still exercise your vote and calm your conscience with a useless gesture Vote for Marychuy!

Now that if you have problems of bipolarity properly diagnosed, vote for any of the above options.
And so:
- Will have voted against and in favor of LGBT rights
- You will have voted on the right and on the left
- You will have voted for the PAN and for the PRI at the same time
- It will have voted for the PAN and at the same time it will disgust the PAN
- Hate the PRI and at the same time vote for him.
- It will be in favor of the poor and in favor of the economic oligarchy of this country.
- He will exercise his vote and at the same time he will have annulled it
Happy elections!

Re: Schizophrenian mexican elections

I'll leave this here since it is related to the same circus that mexican elections is becoming, Facebook made an agreement with Mexico's National Election Institute (INE) to "fight" fake news, so they say ...

_hhttps://translate.google.com/translate?sl=es&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=es&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.huffingtonpost.com.mx%2F2018%2F02%2F13%2Fno-hay-convenio-oculto-con-facebook-dice-el-ine-pero-no-trataran-fake-news_a_23360676%2F&edit-text= said:
"There is no hidden agreement with Facebook", says the INE ... but they will not discuss 'fake news'
The National Electoral Institute reiterated that it has no hidden agreement with Facebook; will give you access to PREP but will not fight 'fake news'.
By Editorial

The National Electoral Institute (INE) reiterated that it has no hidden agreement with Facebook, and that this is to combat the fake news. However, this agreement does not speak of the subject but of some activities that will carry out these elections together. ---

On the one hand, the president of the INE, Lorenzo Cordova, reiterated that "there is no hidden agreement. Whoever states that there is, is not so, these are what are known as framework agreements, which subscribe as a lot of everyday life and they support joint actions, including certain and validated. "

In an interview with television, Córdova said that the framework agreement with Facebook, with which today will have the first meeting, is based on the identification of fake news that are being promoted in a particular way, so that without censorship and with information validated by the INE can be counteracted.

But...

As can be read in a copy of the Facebook-INE cooperation memorandum, which consists of 7 sections, the agreement will have nothing to do with the fake news .

This is what the agreement says in the section on 'Cooperation of the Institute and of Facebook', published by El Universal and considered as confidential with restrictions on its disclosure:

During the Elections period (March 30 to July 1, 2018):

Facebook has the intention (but not the obligation) to make some of its citizen participation products available on its platform for its users in Mexico

On Election Day, the INE will provide Facebook with real-time information on the results of the vote (the PREP)

The INE will give Facebook a physical space in their offices where they can carry out activities related to the Elections, such as posting live videos.

Both parties (INE and Facebook) could create forums and events related to the elections, such as sessions for journalists.

But the INE adds more ...

According to the interview with Córdova, collected by Notimex, they are not giving Facebook information that "can not be given by law ... It is information that has to do with disseminating the results of the electoral process, the results of the elections are the best way to comply with the principle of maximum publicity, and that we will do with Facebook and many companies. "

He reiterates that the framework agreement specifically talks about generating joint information. "And that means validated ... When it is detected that there is information that is being viralized in the networks, this will be made known to us and we will be able to generate certain and validated information," he said.

Imagine that they suddenly say in networks: "the INE decided to change the date of the election from July 1 to July 8, that will be detected and the information will be made saying that it is not like that, that the election is July 1" , exemplified.

Cordova added that the INE is in close contact with many groups generating information, media, networks, conventional media, in order to generate the best communication channels in these elections.

With information from Notimex.

Went to see if there is some sort of meaning, I would like to think that, it may be a distress signal, is not good either, but to see that kind of mistake, precisely at flag's day cannot avoid to think about the odds of the 19th earthquake ...

_https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Distress_signal#Inverted_flags said:
Inverted flags
For hundreds of years inverted national flags were commonly used as distress signals.[4] However, for some countries’ flags it is difficult (e.g., Spain, South Korea, the UK) or impossible (e.g., Japan, Thailand, Israel and Denmark) to determine whether they are inverted. Other countries have flags that are inverses of each other; for example, the Polish flag is white on the top half and red on the bottom, while Indonesia's and Monaco's flags are the opposite—i.e., top half red, bottom half white. A ship flying no flags may also be understood to be in distress.[5]

If any flag is available, distress may be indicated by tying a knot in it and then flying it upside-down, making it into a wheft.[6]
---
[4] For example, 36 U.S. Code §176(a) provides: “The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.”

The German government puts on alert its citizens who wish to travel to Mexico on the situation of insecurity that could increase by the elections of July 1 and other "little things".

ARTICLE CONTENT, EDITED.

The security situation in many parts of Mexico is steadily worsening. The presidential, congressional and gubernatorial elections of July 1, 2018 alone, are expected to increase violence further. Violent offenses as a result of high levels of general crime, but also in connection with organized crime (robberies, kidnappings, homicides, acts of revenge) are increasingly taking place in central locations in broad daylight. In disputes in the field of organized crime, even bystanders can be harmed.
Political demonstrations can turn into violent clashes and should therefore be avoided. This may lead to blockades of the main traffic connections by demonstrators nationwide, which are sometimes violently dissolved. (Google translation of the article in German)

A lot of people whom i've been talking to concur that this upcoming elections may be violent :/ Hopefully not. I've been in a state of alert for the last couple of weeks, not too bad or overwhelming, but it's like you can sense the state of our country in some sort of way. We did an exercise at my job just out of curiosity and casted our votes as if we where already in the elections, to my surprise Anaya came out as the winner. I know it's not the most accurate sample but I found it interesting cause the word out there is kinda pointing out that due to the fact that Meade is not leading the polls, Anaya was the second option for the establishment.. Who knows what will happen, but as i've said already things are getting pretty crazy; quakes, narcs now in the city, violence, and so on :(

In social media I had observed that there is a battle between those who seem to/say so to prefere AMLO --very few say it openly, and those who hate/have terror that AMLO may win because the country will end up as Venezuela and god forbid... and campaign had not started yet, this was just the pre-campaign!!! ...is gonna be jumpy the road to the elections :shock:

The relationship of Cambridge Analytica and its relationship with the Mexican government and next July's elections.

#AristeguiEnVivo 3/22/18: INE-Facebook-Cambridge Analytica; independent PPK resigns and more ... March 22, 2018 7:35 am.

The National Electoral Institute (INE) only gives Facebook information that is public and in accordance with the bases of the agreement signed last February, said the counselor Pamela San Martín.

"The only way that the Institute can give personal information to citizens is under a court order," she said. "Under no circumstances are they given to anyone" personal information of the voters.

In an interview with #AristeguiEnvivo, he explained that the agreement that the INE made with Facebook is to have more information about the election day so that citizens can exercise their rights in the best way.

However, he clarified, "all the information that is given to Facebook is public, it must be information that we all could have by entering the Internet page of the Institute: location of squares, program of preliminary electoral results and the dissemination of presidential debates, the day they take place, "he said.

"There is absolutely no personal information of citizens; under no circumstances are they given to anyone. The only way that the Institute can give personal information to citizens is under a court order. That is something that is expressly established in the law and is one of the greatest care we should have, "he added.

In the case of the Preliminary Electoral Results Program (PREP) system, Facebook will have access as well as any means of communication, he explained.

The counselor recalled that since 2016, the INE has requested information from Facebook to determine what is purchased through this social network (advertising), "which derives from gathering information that the contestants do not want to provide."

Regarding the case of Cambridge Analytica, he commented that "these are novel elements and information is emerging at every moment", so if there is any element, the INE will have to investigate.

"It is not only this issue that is in the discussion, but is the general issue of how it can be altering in a malicious way the information that is circulating in the public space," he said.

On the affirmation of the presiding counselor, Lorenzo Córdova, in which he anticipated that an "INTENSIVE EVENT OF MASSIVE DISINFORMATION THAT SEEKS TO DISCREDIT THE ELECTORAL AUTHORITIES" IS COMING, "derived from the agreement they made with Facebook, San Martín said he did not have information, although He observed that "there is fabrication of information and false news that is spreading in different ways" (edited).

British agents raid London offices of Cambridge Analytica.

About 20 researchers from the British data control agency arrived at the company's offices, after obtaining a search warrant from the Superior Court.

Drafting ANmarzo 24, 2018 11:56 am

Agents of the Office of the Commissioner of Information (ICO) stormed the London headquarters of the company Cambridge Analytica, this Friday night, to seize documents related to the use of more than 50 million Facebook profiles to develop psychological profiles on behalf of of political campaigns, including that of President Trump.


About 20 researchers from the British data control agency of the ICO arrived at the company's offices in New Oxford Street after obtaining a search warrant from the Superior Court.

"We are pleased with the judge's decision, and now the order is being executed," the information commissioner's office, Elizabeth Denham, said in a statement.

"This is just one part of a wider investigation into the use of personal data and analysis for political purposes. As expected, now we will have to collect, evaluate and consider the evidence before reaching any conclusion, "he said.

On Saturday, Denham announced an investigation into "the circumstances in which Facebook data were acquired and used illegally."

European and US lawmakers have demanded an explanation of how the British consultancy obtained access to Facebook data in 2014, and why Facebook did not inform its users. The company's stock has had problems, and some consumers have stopped using Facebook.

The company's chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg, said on Wednesday his company mishandled the data and promised to do better.

The Drug War Debate Reshapes Mexican Politics
Saturday, March 24, 2018 Posted by DD Republished from OXY via borderlandbeat
https://www.ozy.com/fast-forward/the-drug-war-debate-reshapes-mexican-politics/83926
Links within:
When Mexican presidential candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador of the leftist National Regeneration Movement (Morena) proposed amnesty for cartels in December to end the country’s drug war, he drew sharp criticism from multiple stakeholders. But three months later, he retains his lead for the July 1 elections. He hasn’t retracted his proposal. His critics haven’t backed off. A deepening divide is shaping the discourse ahead of the upcoming polls.

Current President Enrique Peña Nieto of the centrist Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), which has ruled Mexico for most of the past century, has said that amnesty would be a betrayal of the country. The conservative National Action Party (PAN) has mocked Obrador’s proposal, calling him confused. And many parents of the more than 200,000 men and women killed in the drug war over the past decade have challenged the suggestion of amnesty. Last year — 2017 — was the deadliest of the past 10 years, with 25,000 killed. If Obrador wins, he says, his administration would consider amnesty “when and if it includes the support of the victims.”

"You have to rebuild the social fabric." Nancy Garcia Fregoso, adviser to Mexico’s Electoral Tribunal of the Federal Judiciary.

But recent surveys by reputed polling firm Parametria show that while 30 percent of the country’s citizens think amnesty would increase crime, an exact same number think it would help curtail violence. And 43 percent of respondents said that the cartels “do more public works in communities than the government,” while 42 percent disagreed — highlighting a deep distrust in government.

Obrador’s proposal for amnesty isn’t giving him an edge, but Colombia’s example — 100,000 people associated with the drug trade reentered the mainstream after the country’s milestone peace pact with the left-wing rebel Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) last year — is increasingly also echoing in Mexico.

Since the presidency of Felipe Calderón of the PAN starting in 2006, Mexico has adopted a military-first approach to tackling drug cartels. It is an approach that has resonated for large periods of the past decade with a nation angry at the bloodletting of the drug cartels. Calderón’s successor, Peña Nieto, constituted a National Gendarmerie to battle the cartels.

Not atypically for a seasoned politician — Obrador is contesting for the country’s top post for the third time — the reality of his platform is a lot more nuanced than some of his public pronouncements. He has held up the ongoing violence — including almost 19,000 executions by organized crime in 2017, according to public policy analysis firm Lantia Consultores — as evidence that the old approach is failing. His campaign document, called the Project of the Nation 2018–2024, promises to break with armed conflict, reform the country’s crowded and corrupt prisons and focus on reintegration and alternative penal models for minor crimes. “The country’s penitentiary centers have become true schools of crime” reads the document. And “prioritizing intelligence over force” is a theme that runs through the document. At the same time, though, he has proposed creating a National Guard of more than 200,000 soldiers and 50,000 navy servicemen and women. It is unclear how this force would be any different from the one Peña Nieto instituted.

And amnesty won’t be easy to accomplish. It would require the passage of a law that clearly defines the advantages for the government, the criminals and society at large. It would also require temporary enforcement measures to bring about what is known as “transitional justice,” says Garcia Fregoso.

But Obrador’s proposal has sparked a debate that continues to rage as a key political theme ahead of the presidential elections. The central argument against unconditional amnesty has been that of victims’ human rights, including their right to justice. “Granting amnesty for serious crimes is against international law where victims’ right to justice must be granted,” says Pascal Hubatka, a human rights consultant based in Mexico City. Victims and their families have a right to justice, reparations and to know the truth about what happened to their loved ones, he adds.

In Mexico, justice — and not just for victims of the drug war — has long proven elusive. According to the country’s National Institute of Statistic and Geography, 94 percent of all crimes go unreported, and only about 1 percent are punished by jail. And to some families of those killed in the drug war, Obrador’s proposal is akin to rubbing salt on wounds. “Can you in good conscience ask us to forget the victims, especially the victims of the disappearings, who still haven’t found their loved ones?” Javier Sicilia, poet, activist and father to Juan Francisco, who was killed in 2011, wrote in an open letter in January.

Political opponents too continue to criticize Obrador. PAN leader Damián Zepeda says the Morena presidential candidate is “confused about the solutions that Mexico requires to confront the problems of corruption, violence and education.” Meanwhile, Alfonso Durazo, Morena’s candidate for public security secretary, has insisted on national television that amnesty is a viable option, citing the example of Colombia.

A poll of polls by Mexican agency Oraculus in February concluded that Obrador stood a 99 percent chance of winning if the elections were held then. Every poll since then has only backed the assessment that he remains in the lead ahead of the upcoming elections. But as Peña Nieto and Calderón found, ending the drug war is harder than winning the presidency. The growing rift in Mexico on how best to approach drug cartels won’t make it any easier.

Note DD.
Three presidential candidates running as Independents had collected the required 866,593 signatures to be on the ballot, but Mexico's election regulator (INE) ruled that 3 million signatures could not be verified.
That left left-leaning Armando Rios Piter and former Gov. Jaime Rodriguez off the ballot and handing Margarita Zavala, former President Felipe Calderon's wife, barely enough signatures to participate in July's election, regulators said.

INE, described the high percentage of unsubstantiated signatures the majority of those collected as resulting from fake voter IDs and invalid photocopies of real IDs.

Jaime Rodriguez, better known as Bronco, was the first Independent to be elected Governor in Mexico in 2015. He was also the only non-Pri candidate to ever be elected Governor of the state of Nuevo Leon and he won by more than 50% of the votes in a crowded field. After the announcement INE that he was not elgible to be on the ballot Bronco told the press that "it wouldn't have made any difference if I had gotten a million signatures the powers that be would not allow me to be on the ballot and have a chance to be President of Mexico."

Recently Jorge Castañeda, newly campaign advisor of Anaya, candidate for president of the "right" PAN party in union "left" party PRD and "Movimiento Ciudadano" -- Por Mexico al Frente (For Mexico to the Front---it sounds weird in english, though) announced that they are not longer to compare AMLO with Chavez (Venezuela) as a "greatest dangers to the country", "someones -no names" had been pouring videos/posts in that direction on social media, curiously ... Castañeda mentioned lately that the campaign is turning to compare AMLO with former mexican president Luis Echeverrìa ... when I read it, my frist thought was ... what??

... for the time being, I will leave here some links because I had not finish reading them and there is something here fishy, at a certain point, in a very broadly manner, it figures to me that Castañeda is bitting it's thongue ... searched a little bit here about Club of Rome, but had not finished the searching, though

Meetings will continue with narco because 'it is necessary': Bishop of Chilpacingo
Salvador Rangel said he will continue with his negotiation work with criminals to achieve peace in Guerrero.
---One of the most violent states of Mexico

CHILPANCINGO.- The bishop of the Chilpancingo Diocese -Chilapa, Salvador Rangel Mendoza, does not give up his position and assured that he will continue to meet with the organized crime groups that operate in Guerrero, because it is necessary and is not in violation of the law.

A few days ago the Catholic representative said he met in the Sierra de Guerrero with leaders of a criminal organization, who pledged not to coerce the vote in the electoral process and not kill the candidates who campaign in that area.

Authorities and leaders of social organizations and parties rejected the position of the prelate, however the bishop said he will continue with his work of negotiation with criminals to achieve peace.

He spoke of his availability to be an interlocutor if he sees "the need to do so", or if the parishioners or criminals ask him to do so. He added "I think we can take a bit of will from the bad guys".

Rangel Mendoza said that so far, only has the commitment of a criminal group not to attempt against candidates and said that what he does is not outlawed because it is for the good of the community.

Lawyers ask that clergy be called to testify
The members of the Bar of Lawyers of Guerrero made a call to the Attorney General of the State, Javier Olea Peláez, to summon the bishop to testify.

"We make an attentive and respectful call to the prosecutor, in order to initiate the corresponding investigation folder, and if the citizen bishop does not come to declare in terms of what is required by Article 222 of the National Code of Criminal Procedures, be cited in an official manner because the law so provides, "said Victoriano Sánchez Carbajal, leader of the lawyers.

He said that the possible crimes incurred by the bishop are concealment and criminal association.

In addition, he added, every religious leader must respect the Law of Religious Associations, which in his article 21 bis states that they should inform the authorities about the probable commission of crimes committed in the exercise of their worship or in their facilities.

In the same way, article 29 of that law says that they constitute infractions "to oppose the laws of the country or its institutions in public meetings".

They said that the Ministry of the Interior can initiate the administrative procedures of responsibilities; They also called on the Secretary General of the Government of Guerrero, Florencio Salazar Adame, to present the complaint for the statements "of the pact that the bishop said ."

And the third call made by the Bar was to the Secretary of the Interior, so that in case the complaint is filed, "analyze the possible alteration of the social tranquility and public order that may arise due to the statements of the Lord bishop . "
