The Peruvian Congress approved on Wednesday after submitting it for debate a motion to reject the “unacceptable acts of interference” of the Governments of Colombia and Mexico in the country’s internal affairs.
This comes as a reaction to the statements issued by the presidents of both countries, Gustavo Petro and Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO), positioning themselves in favor of the thesis that the former leftist president Pedro Castillo had been illegally removed from power after he tried to provoke the dissolution of the Peruvian Parliament through a coup d’état last Dec. 8.
The parliamentary motion, which was led by opposition congresswoman Maricarmen Alva (from the Acción Popular party), ended up being approved in the plenary session of the Chamber with 61 votes in favor and 41 against, and contemplates that the declarations of both presidents “constitute a violation of International Law”.
It is worth remembering that last week the Mexican ambassador in Lima, Pablo Monroy, had been declared persona non grata by the new Peruvian government led by Dina Boluarte.
In 2022, in Mexico, the implementation of soft socialism, led by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO), continued at full speed, with all its classic expressions:
the destruction of democratic and autonomous institutions, electoral mega-assistance, gifts to the Army to win its will and political support, the militarization of security and public service, agenda of LGBT, feminist and indigenous supremacism, leftist indoctrination in schools, impulse to polarization against conservatives.
In what context is all this train wreck taking place?
Mexico is the most dangerous country in the world to practice journalism. With 11 journalists murdered this year, according to Reporters Without Borders, and with 40 so far in AMLO’s six-year term.
Mexico is more dangerous than Ukraine, Syria, and Iran to practice journalism.
Likewise, the militarization of public security advanced when the National Guard was placed under the command of the Secretariat of National Defense (SEDENA) in September.
The Army continues to be given new business, all unconstitutional since it should only be dedicated to security.
But no, because it now administers several ports, six airports, and customs, in addition to participating in the construction of the controversial and anti-ecological Mayan Train project and the masonry of the “Welfare Banks”.
And while the armed forces dedicate themselves to making money and other tasks, Bill Barr, the well-known former US Prosecutor General, was already saying in March that AMLO had lost control of Mexico to the narco.
That’s how flat and crude it is.
Mega assistance is also galloping at the free rein when we see that 85% of Mexican households, 25 million families, receive social programs.
This generates an evident “gratitude”, or should we say, conditioning so that people are inclined to vote for MORENA, AMLO’s party, which now claims that it is no longer of the left but does not deny its militancy in the São Paulo Forum.
The socialist plan to indoctrinate children is still in place.
They want to impose a Marxist “education” from the Ministry of Public Education (SEP) policies.
It seems to AMLO’s soft socialist government that the school plans inherited from previous administrations were only useful to submerge the students in negative ideologies or postures.
They put in the same bag everything that hinders them as the good red-bone Marxists they are: neoliberalism, racism, patriarchy, elitism, competitiveness, and meritocracy.
At the same time, Mexico is experiencing the highest inflation in two decades, disappearances of people have increased, and AMLO, on a trip to Havana, called for a new socialist revolution.
And he was busy tying himself to the São Paulo Forum and the Puebla Group to sabotage the Summit of the Americas in the middle of the year, all to defend the tyrannies of his friends in Cuba and Venezuela.
However, in the elections, the MORENA party managed to advance and already governs 22 of the 32 states of the country.
Among other transcendental events, the Mexican Episcopal Conference (CEM) showed concern for the increase in violence, qualifying Mexico as one of the most violent countries in the world.
In July, the Iberosfera Monterrey Congress was held, with political leaders from Spain and the Americas and right-wing and conservative authors.
Then in November, Eduardo Verástegui, together with Matt and Mercedes Schlapp, held the CPAC MEXICO (Conservative Political Action Conference), the most important event of conservatism in the United States, for the first time in Mexico.
Dozens of politicians, activists, lecturers, and writers, of very good level gathered there and were immediately criticized with the usual harassment from the power by AMLO.
On Oct. 9, a great pro-life march was held, the second after the 2021 march, gathering, adding all the cities, close to 1 million people.
Unfortunately, however, 2022 was marked by one main issue: the destruction of the National Electoral Institute (INE) by AMLO and his legislators, who operated a reform to strip it of offices, funds, and autonomy, returning Mexico almost to the way it was 40 years ago, with elections centralized by the presidency and its people and not by an autonomous body.
In response to this, there was a march to defend INE on Nov. 13, in which some 700,000 people gathered in Mexico City.
The opposition organized itself that day and came out of its usual lukewarmness.
For its part, the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN) launched a draft resolution to prohibit Catholic nativity scenes in all public spaces, arguing that they would “disturb” those who profess other religions or are atheists and their human rights would be affected, in a progressive stance that instead violates the right to religious freedom and free expression.
The government policy of “hugs, not bullets” against organized crime meant de facto inaction against the actors that cause insecurity in the country.
And the advances in the recentralization of public administration affected the states.
Finally, as things stand, this year closes in this way: so far, this six-year term, we can already consider it the worst of the most recent ones in terms of intentional homicides.
138,000 have already been committed, and 40 journalists have been murdered.
Gasoline is still expensive and did not go down to 10 pesos (half a dollar), as AMLO promised.
We did not grow at 5% annually, as he swore, either.
Nor do we have a health system like that of Denmark. Children with cancer still do not have access to medicine.
And there is constant intimidation against opponents by AMLO, who continues to build the Latin American red bloc’s leadership and set the agenda for the São Paulo Forum and the Puebla Group and now defends the coup leader Pedro Castillo.
But Mexicans did not vote for this, nor his cronyism with socialist banana dictators like Maduro and Diaz Canel.
