Encuesta: Izquierda mexicana Obrador lidera la elección de 2018.


CIUDAD DE MÉXICO - El izquierdista mexicano Andrés Manuel López Obrador, que encabeza el partido Movimiento Nacional de Regeneración (MORENA), es el favorito antes de las elecciones presidenciales del próximo año, según un sondeo periodístico publicado el lunes.

La encuesta de El Universal encontró que el 23.3 por ciento de los encuestados votaría por MORENA en la votación de 2018, por delante del conservador Partido de Acción Nacional, que tuvo un 20 por ciento de apoyo.

El Partido Revolucionario Institucional (PRI) que lleva la presidencia con Enrique Peña Nieto estaba en tercer lugar, con un 16.5 por ciento, según la encuesta.

Los principales partidos aún tienen que elegir a sus candidatos para la carrera, pero López Obrador, o AMLO como se le conoce a nivel local, es el candidato de facto de MORENA, que fundó en 2014 después de romper con su base de larga data, el partido de centro-izquierda de la Revolución Democrática (PRD).

Una victoria para el combativo y de tendencia nacionalista López Obrador podría avivar las tensiones con la administración Trump justo cuando los Estados Unidos, México y Canadá buscan sellar una renegociación del Tratado de Libre Comercio de América del Norte.

El canoso López Obrador, de 63 años, es uno de los políticos más conocidos en México, después de haber estado atacando implacablemente a otros partidos por corrupción. Pero también es una figura divisiva, temida por la élite empresarial del país.

López Obrador, ex alcalde de la Ciudad de México, fue finalista en los dos últimos concursos presidenciales.

En varios escenarios sondeados por El Universal, en los que AMLO se enfrentó a diferentes candidatos de los otros partidos, los izquierdistas salieron adelante, obteniendo entre 28.6 y 31 por ciento de apoyo.

Los analistas políticos dicen que eso puede ser suficiente para ganar el concurso de julio de 2018 con el electorado cada vez más dividido.

Solo la del PAN, Margarita Zavala, que es la esposa del ex presidente Felipe Calderón, estuvo cerca, con un 26.1-26.6 por ciento de los encuestados que le dieron su apoyo.

Además, AMLO fue el candidato potencial más visto positivamente, con el 43.3 por ciento de los encuestados con una opinión optimista del veterano político.

Un pacto electoral que vincula al PAN, el PRD y el partido Movimiento del Ciudadano no es bien conocido en México, según la encuesta, pero entre quienes tienen conocimiento de la alianza recién formada, el 46 por ciento pensó que podría vencer a MORENA el próximo año.

La encuesta, que tuvo un margen de error de 1.3 por ciento, encuestó a 6.400 mexicanos en entrevistas personales entre el 18 de agosto y el 3 de septiembre.

Five years in prison for the police man who tortured journalist Lydia Cacho.


MEXICO CITY (AP) - The Office of the General Prosecutor (PGR) reported that the Second District Court residing in Puebla issued a five-year and three-month prison sentence against police officer José Montaño, accused of torturing the journalist Lydia Cacho.

At that time Montaño served as commander of the state police of Puebla and was responsible for the transfer of the journalist.

On June 22, 2005, the businessman Kamel Nacif Borge denounced Cacho for defamation and slander, and asked the governor of Puebla, Mario Marín, to exercise his influence so that the communicator was arrested for the publication of the book 'The demons of Eden "- where she publicly denounced a network of prostitution and child pornography - in which she links Mario Marín with Succar Kuri.

Lydia Cacho was arrested on December 16 by the puebla judicial police in Cancún, Quintana Roo, and transferred by land to the city of Puebla. The arrest warrant was issued by Judge Rosa Celia Pérez González. After almost 30 hours of arrest she was released, after paying a deposit of 106 thousand pesos.

It lasted 12 hours and had a total of seven people killed by gunshot wounds, all of them civilians, and was described by the president of the CNDH, Luis Raúl González Pérez, as "an example of what should not be police actions of this nature ".

"Bajale de huevos" (Stop messing around) was told, with a gun pointing to his head, a member of Mexican against corruption.



Darío Ramírez, director of Communication of Mexicans against corruption and impunity, explained in what consisted the threat against one of the members of that organization.

In an interview for #AristeguiEnVivo with Isaías Robles, he remembered the background, such as the fact that they were targets of Pegasus spy software.

The statement of Mexicans Against Corruption and Impunity (MCCI) is reproduced in full here:

Mexicans Against Corruption and Impunity (MCCI) has faced an environment of harassment stemming from their investigations and litigation. There are, for example, the cases of espionage that have been subjected to three members of the organization through the Pegasus malware as confirmed by experts in the matter and published by the New York Times.

A new incident of intimidation has recently been reported. Last week a MCCI employee suffered a threat while walking on the street. A motorcycle with two crew men approached surprisingly and one of the individuals went to our collaborator, drew a pistol and asked for the cell phone. So far it seemed like an assault on common delinquency. However, before fleeing, he aimed the gun at our partner's head and said, "Bajale de huevos" (Stop messing around). Then he got on the motorcycle and left. After advancing a few meters hurled the cell phone.

We proceeded as follows: a formal complaint was filed with the Public Prosecutor's Office, which is identified by file number CI-FH / CUH-2 / UI-2SD / 05508 / 10-2017; a communication was sent to the Ministry of the Interior detailing this and several other harassment incidents that have been the object of the organization and its collaborators; the same information was sent to the Rapporteurs of Freedom of Expression of the Mexican Commission on Human Rights (CNDH), the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) and the United Nations.

We do this to defend our partner and to demand that the authorities investigate thoroughly and punish those responsible.

Despite the adverse context, in MCCI we reaffirm our commitment to combat corruption and impunity and defend freedom of expression and the rule of law. Far from frightening us, harassment is a new sign that we are meeting our goals.

El oportunismo en las desgracias y tragedias recientes de los mexicanos.

El oportunismo en las desgracias y tragedias recientes de los mexicanos.



Cantidad de notas y artículos periodísticos que circulan describen como grupos, empresas, gobierno y personas en las últimas desgracias del país están actuando con oportunismo. Como si se tratara de películas apocalípticas de ciencia ficción donde grupos de personas se alzan para establecer sus reglas, saquear o simplemente agraviar a otros. Pero la realidad supera la ficción. En la escena que tenemos hoy en día, después de los temblores, encontramos que no sólo hay grupos organizados de personas buscando sacar provecho, sino que el mismo gobierno lo hace, ya sea aprobando leyes injustas, saqueadoras e inhumanas (mientras el pueblo esta ocupado en la tragedia y haciendo lo que el gobierno es incapaz de hacer) o ya sea para retener víveres obtenidos de cantidad de donativos del pueblo y luego hacer parecer que ellos mismos los reparten y así obtener un beneficio político. Hasta donde llega el oportunismo y lo inhumano. También tenemos casos de empresas buscando beneficio a costa de la desgracia ajena, como la empresa que montó en más de un día el caso de una niña enterrada entre los escombros y que hasta la fecha no hay registros de su existencia. Podemos recordar también el caso de aquella conductora peruana con el montaje en que se hizo pasar como rescatista luego de la devastación del huracán "Manuel" en Guerrero y lo peor, usando dos helicópteros del gobierno. 

Es razonable que haya barbarie entre grupos humanos en catástrofes, eso ha sido profetizado cantidad de veces en libros y películas.  Pero que empresas poderosas y gobiernos sin necesidad hagan tales actos de total insensibilidad hacia el pueblo, repito, eso supera la ficción y es un reflejo de que hoy en día el nuevo dios se llamada "Dios dinero" y el hombre pasa a ser un recurso al que se le puede exprimir cada vez más y más dinero, hasta en sus múltiples desgracias. 

Escritores de ciencia ficción, aquí tienen nuevo material para inspirarse y gente ¡cuidado!
