Mexican Mayor Murdered, First Day in Office

Mexican Mayor Murdered, First Day in Office
January 04
20:23 2019

Within just hours of the New Year, local Mayor Alejandro Aparicio Santiago was gunned down as he walked towards his office for a scheduled meeting at city hall in the small town of Tlaxiaco.

No doubt the tragic death of an elected official is always cause for concern, however in Mexico the murder of an elected official has become a routine occurrence, as predictable as the drug cartels sneaking through our porous borders undetected, bringing their cargo of death and destruction to America.

According to The Associated Press, the newly elected mayor who was sworn in  hours before the assassination, was walking to his first official meeting, when a group of gunmen opened fire, mortally wounding the mayor. Santiago was rushed to a nearby hospital where he died a short time later.

Ironically, the mainstream media in America rarely reports on the epidemic of violence and political corruption emanating from our southern neighbors, or the daily carnage of its citizens taking place at the hands of drug lords and gangs.

Santiago’s murder only hours into 2019, is simply a prelude of what’s to come, if history is any indication. The stunning report from NPR, that from September 2017 through August 2018, over 175 politicians were murdered in Mexico. Moreover according to Mexico’s National Association of Mayors, since 2006 over 72 mayors and mayors-elect have been gunned down by drug lords and violent gangs.

Gov. Alejandro Murat of Oaxaca confirmed the murder of Santiago via Twitter on Tuesday.

Murat condemned Santiago’s slaying, promising a thorough investigation. He said a suspect was already in custody.

However the wider issue for America and in particular those progressive lawmakers who’ve abandoned their core responsibility of protecting American citizens against a violent prone and corrupt country intent on breaking our immigration laws by exporting chaos and violence.

Moreover Mexico is on the brink of a civil war as innocent citizens are caught in the crosshairs between drug violence and government corruption. The rising homicide rates have reached epic proportions that Mexico’s morgues are now overflowing with decaying bodies. Several cities have even resorted to storing the dead in refrigerated trailers.

In the city of Guadalajara, officials have begrudgingly acknowledged after residents complained about a horrific stench that two trailers parked in a residential neighborhood were packed with human remains.

The incident sparked a national scandal within the Mexican government, as the news began to filter out that human remains, and dozens of bodies are also stacked in the city’s morgue. Authorities speculate that there are approximately 400 unclaimed bodies, some in storage for more than 3-years.

People from all over Mexico have flooded to the morgue in Guadalajara in search of their relatives. Last year alone there were over 30,000 people murdered, many unidentified, this year officials predict that the homicide rate already at a record high will swell to more then 35,000 by the end of August.

Remarkably few within the American mainstream media feel compelled to report the time-bomb next door. The media’s focus as usual consists of pushing their progressive narrative regarding Mexico, as a benevolent neighbor attempting to coexist with America in solving the immigration cries, while in truth both the drug cartels and the corrupt Mexican government are engaged in an international drug enterprise, and it’s victims are innocent citizens on both sides of the border and honest mayors like Alejandro Aparicio Santiago gunned down only hours after being sworn in.

In a recent report Mexico was named the second deadliest country in 2016 with over 23,000 lives lost because of the drug wars, second only to war torn Syria with 50,000 deaths.

“This is all the more surprising, considering that the conflict deaths [in Mexico] are nearly all attributable to small arms,” said John Chipman, chief executive and director-general of the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), which issued its annual survey of armed conflict on Tuesday.

Perhaps if Democratic lawmakers along with the mainstream media actually took notice of the internal chaos taking place within Mexico, they might agree that building a big beautiful wall is exactly what America needs…and fast!

    Maybe we should send Ocasio-Cortez down there to investigate. She always has “good ideas.”

        TAi;

        You’ve just proved in ” The Court of Public Opinion ” that you are a leftist communist whinger who delights in not earning an honest day’s pay, but eagerly shove both hands out to grab as many food stamps as you can get your smelly, grubby mits on.

        Pull your nose outa your own smelly arse, clean it with strong disinfectant, then liberally rinse with filtered water, then have a good, serious, long look around at what is going on in the real world.

        You just might, ” No . . . Will ” find to your disgusting horror, that what you’ve been fed for years by your Demonrat Cratic slave masters is a whole load of $#%@^%*&!

        Maybe then you’ll learn that it’s a lot of fun, immensely satisfying & extremely profitable to do 1 of 2 things.

        A): Either work for an employer who really does highly value you as their employee & pays you damm well into the bargain.

        B): Work hard & honestly for yourself, get paid handsomely for doing so & for once, have a little my pride in yourself as a person & a great deal more respect for others who agree to disagree with your opinion.

          Dearest Drew,
          1) I am not especially liberal. I agree that the nation needs a strong military and I regard private citizens as generally entitled to defend themselves. that by law or weapon or whatever, but they do have to be able to show that the threat was credible. “Someone else having rights” does not satisfy that requirement in case you were unclear.

          I might have my nose up my arse, but yours is up someone else’s. I would prefer to smell my own if those are the only choices that either of us have. Frankly I doubt that those are the only choices, but as above you are entitled to live with what crack you sniff.

          I find your reference to “real world” odd since you do not bother to describe it other than by a butt crack. As the saying goes, if you aren’t the lead dog, the view never changes.

          3) as for item “A” I am retired after a tech career of about 35 years. That overall equation is more or less a mix of what you implied that I did not have and did not earn. And as for item “B”, if I did not have any of that, I would have have been able to retire, notwithstanding whether you are some authority on who “deserves” what.

          And about “respect for others”… I am willing to show it and accept it, but I do require people to earn it. So I participate here, on a site that is obviously right-of-center and do not personally care whether you like it or not. But I will give you another chance to actually make a compelling argument if you have one to offer and have the skills to do it.
          Your move, cowboy.

        He’s been squeezed into this self-pitying frame of mind since November 2016.

    I am generally dis-inclined to jump to unwarranted conclusions about the motive nor culprit of political assassination, especially this soon after the event, and long before anything resembling investigation, has been accomplished.
    Meanwhile, before you conclude that Mexico is therefore exporting its violence to the USA via borders, keep in mind that the USA is the number one weapons vendor in the world, and there is no close second.

      It is a good trait to be skeptical about the news but bandwagons are also dangerous. It is too easy to blame the firearm and not the lawless person that uses it nor the culture that sees violence as the only solution. Violent behavior and drugs are habit forming.

      Switzerland has far more gun-owners per capita than Americans — a fact that anti-Bill of Rights goobers could not possibly understand, because it isn’t harmonious with their mush brains.

      The strictest gun laws in the U.S. — in areas like Chicago and Washington, D.CX. — coincide with the highest rates of violence.

      But Marxians couldn’t care less about victims; they want the entire U.S. in the same submission mode that the black population was in. in the South until the Civil War.

      Demnocrats never change. On the side of dictatorship and oppression in the 21st century as they were in the 19th.

      The strictest gun laws in the U.S. — in areas like Chicago and Washington, D.C. do nothing to calm the country’s highest rates of violence. They only help to disarm victims, which of course is the intent.

      But Marxians couldn’t care less about victims; they want the entire U.S. in the identical submission mode that the black population was forced into in the South nrgptr the Civil War.

      Demnocrats never change. They remain wedded to dictatorship and oppression in the 21st century as they were in the 19th.

    in re the “Chester Arthur” quote, I find it amusing that on this website where birds apparently fly with two right-wings, that you include a comment from an ex-president that clearly supports a single-payer, efficient and not terminally profit-motivated health care system. How bloody liberal of you.

    We travel to many parts of Mexico. We stay for weeks. We love it. The cities are beautiful, and we love the customs and people. We don’t travel with a tour, but of course if you don’t speak Spanish, like in any other country, that may be advised. This article like many others, is ignorant, and biased.

    Even 5hiugh it was said on here that America is second to none when it comes to guns, to me that is even more reason to keep the thugs from the South out if our country. Width that being said for the innocent people that live there then I do strongly thing that if America is going to help out in Syria, then why not send our troops to help out the good people of Mexico.

    This may sound rather outlandish, but perhaps it’s time for America to do a ” soft invasion & colonisation ” of its Southern Neighbour, with Mexico’s blessing.

    Just quietly mobilise its forces all along the border, along with air & naval support from Pacific & Caribbean Coasts. Then in a benign pincer movement, sweep through Mexico returning appropriate ” live fire ” only when fired upon, until all Drug Lords, corrupt Government officials, their properties, etc are seized & dealt with in like fashion as they caused unto untold millions of Americans.

    Who knows? Ordinary Mexican citizens may very well welcome such an ” invasion/colonization ” with open arms, cheering & flag waving.

    Then build an appropriately secure “Border Wall ” between Mexico & its adjacent southern neighbour. It would cost far less than the one following the Rio Grande as that specific border is miniscule in comparison.

    America, & its western democratic allies did for some considerable time ” in a manner of speaking ” colonize West Germany, & Japan specifically in its entirety after WWII. Look at those nations now? They are, for the most part governed on democratic principles. Modern Japan, despite its troubles, in particular is a fine example of democracy at work. Since WWII it has adhered to the ” non-aggression pact ” it signed on The Missouri in 1942, overseen by General Douglas MacArthur; & has for the most part, prospered ever since.
    Yes, it does have a ” small Defence Force “, but that is purely for co-operative self defence with like-minded more powerful allies.

    I’m not suggesting America ” make ” Mexico into another State of the U.S. An autonomous territory & retaining its name, but install fully vetted, honest Government officials who only desire the very best for their country & with them, ruthlessly destroy root & branch all Drug Lords, human traffickers, their entourages, etc. Once that’s done, Mexico itself, could begin to rebuild, prosper . . . & do very well.

    Only then would the American People be able to sleep soundly & safely at night.

      Could it be that Germany and Japan were technologically advanced (i.e. “rich”) countries before WW II, whereas Mexico has always been poor?

      If so, we may not expect to see the same results with a post occupation Mexico as we saw with post-war Germany and Japan.

    @Drew:
    WRT your “…pincer movement…” idea.

    It already happened. Reference the Marine Hymn words “…from the alls of Montezuma, to the shores of Tripoli…”
    both are historically accurate. I hate to recommend terminally liberal sources like wikipedia, but read up on the US war with mexico. The one thing we did NOT do, was stay there.
