Voices of the People


Humberto Moreira Valdés, Governor of the state of Coahuila

The following post is based on an e-mail received by Borderland Beat from citizens of Coahuila, a state in Mexico that borders Southwest Texas. It is a call to action against the current governor of the state, Humberto Moreira Valdes of the PRI party, by citizens of the Torreon, which has been hit especially hard this year by the violence, crime and murders being perpetrated by organized criminal groups.

Many of his constituents despise the governor as the prototype of political corruption in Mexico today. He is rumored to own million dollar homes in San Antonio, Texas and Vail, Colorado. How these properties were obtained on a public servant’s salary is open to conjecture.

Governors are known as the “New Viceroys” of the Mexican political system. They hold and exercise much more power than U.S. Governors and in most cases are not answerable to the President of the Republic. They control access to public funds in a political system not known for its transparency.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FROM WHOM DO WE RESCUE TORREON?

We are living in very complicated times with violence throughout the country, which has intensified in Ciudad Juarez, but I think second place is the city of Torreón, where at least two deaths occur daily (and we only know of those that are published). But there are other crimes that do not come to light such as robbery, assault, kidnapping, rape, etc. that one learns of through acquaintances, that come ever closer, and that is very troubling.

I have a clear theory about what is happening, this theory is supported by various facts and historical analysis of the political situation in our country:

The original purpose of this violence was for the PRI to recover the presidency through agreements with the Governors and the involvement of people associated with drug trafficking. Thus began the destabilization of the country by shootings, executions and some well-planned kidnappings.

The theme of the slogan was: "The fault lies with Calderón and the federal government that triggered the war on drugs and us angel Governors have nothing to do with this, and we are victims ourselves”..

If you look, this has been the discourse of governors since this started, the same subject, and almost the same words.

But the majority of crimes occurred are of the order of the civil courts, i.e. the responsibility of state governments and mayors, but like most Mexicans we do not think, we do not analyze, we are easily bought off by the comments of the Governors, as communicated by the mass media.

What we are experiencing is the result of the PRI’s many years, through candid negotiations, of alliance with organized crime to remain in power. And now the situation is completely out of control.

Thank you "gentlemen" Governors who favor partisan interests over the people who you want to drive to exhaustion.

Let history demand the truth of how things are now because they are responsible and are now well hidden behind the trousers of President Calderon, the only president of Mexico who had the courage to decisively counter the drug addiction, corruption and lawlessness, but actually :

HIS STRATEGY HAS FAILED:

He never understood that the GOVERNORS SUCH AS MOREIRA were behind all the corruption that contaminates and harms the people.

IT IS TIME TO WAKE UP AND UNITE AND NOT BE DIVIDED BY THE INFLUENCE OF POLITICAL FORCES BECAUSE THIS IS HOW WE DO MORE DAMAGE TO OURSELVES.

IT IS NOW TIME THAT WE SETTLE ACCOUNTS WITH MAYOR OLMOS OF TORREON AND GOVERNOR MOREIRA AND DEMAND THAT THEY FIX THE SEVERE DAMAGE THEY HAVE CAUSED TO OUR CITY AND OUR STATE

WE ARE NOT WITH THE PAN OR THE PRD, MUCH LESS THE PRI. WE ARE PROUD PARTISANS OF MEXICO.

  3. Why in the hell can't Mexaco have disclosure rules requiring the audit of all office holders as to holdings,income,business partners, etc. It is a fact that Mexican politicians have a very high rate of corruption not necessarily from drug people but for anyone with $ very similar to the U.S. As long as being elected results in a get rich quick scheme office holders will be suspect. President Calderon has his plate full can you imagine him trying to get ethics legislation passed ?? Is there some form of internal affairs investigation system? I saw where the mayor of Cancun was indicted and maby a Govenor from Sinaloa the clean up needs to start at the top to have any effect.

  4. Great nepatism,political incest,hire your cousin,Govt contracts for kickbacks,pad the budget, buy land insider info, public works projects feeding frenzy, sounds like Texas, with the exception that in U.S.running for office is usually not a lethal undertaking. I truly believe that the reason Mexico is falling apart is the huge degree of corruption, everybody is for sale no concept of public duty bettering the country making Mexico a better safe place just like every other 3rd world shootout. The Drug Thugs are just one more symptom of ethical bankrupcy.

  5. Humberto Moreira gives the entrance to the Zetas in the state, he is one of the principal colaborators of these group, some people says the zeta´s finances his campaign, it was paid directly from (governors brother)Ruben Moreira´s neihgbor: Sigifredo Najera aka. "el canicón" one of the cruelest Z's he was captured in Saltillo(where moreira lives)in 2009 by federal troops, and governor moreira get mad because no one tells him about this operation (to let him scape)
    Moreira is the owner of almost all the media in the state RCG tv, Zocalo news, these kind of media only say´s beatufil things about all the moreiras, defends criminals with its notes (zetas) and shit about the military forces (the only ones who protects us)
    Now the things have changed in the state by the separation between Z´s and CDG´s and now the state is even more dangerous, by the moreiras alliance with his "compadres" Z´s

    Brother a heavily power seater in the the State legislature.


    Ruben Moreira.

    These people aver very smart, and i will be very surprised to see that they have properties registered under their names in Texas. Maybe a corporation or some pseudo name...who knows, maybe under a tough texas lawyer. All are possibilities,but it is a fact they have million dollar homes in San Antonio and Inmense Villas in Colorado. God only knows where else in the world they could have properties as well.

  10. Finally there is a forum available where the maquiavelian, socialistic, populistic and tremendously profitable Moreira regime can be denounced. Moreira has made the state of Coahuila his kingdom disregarding the feelings or interests of the people who maintain the economy of Coahuila. Nobody can oppose him or his family and he has prepared the scenario for a long time rule of the most corrupt and dictatorial clan including his brothers and his son. Unfortunately the State of Coahuila,like other Mexican states is not beholden to the Federal government. We need to unite the thinking people of Coahuila to prevent a monarchy taking over our state.

  15. This is not only "how it's done in Texas", but it's the "Chicago Way". Mexico is leading the way with the US a close second.
    What We (both nations) need is a "mano duro", an

  27. Quit defaming the Governor if you have absolutely no clue of what it is you speak of.
    Rumours are basically all 99% of what you crackers write, ignorant at best.
    The Governor has done great things in Saltillo
    he is trying to implement the death penalty for law breakers, he is one of the sponsors of the
    "Policia Unica" to weed out corruption.
    yes Mexico has its problems, but i dare say
    Moreira is more honorable than your Ex president, the Hollywood Redneck Bush.

  28. If we want our U.S. neighbors to respect us, and above all believe us, lets try to act educated, and honest, otherwise, this will just be another waste of a good opportunity to have the voice of the Mexican people be heard.

  29. Version en Espanol

    Este articulo se basa en un correo electrónico recibido por Beat Borderland de los ciudadanos de Coahuila, un estado en México en la fronteras con el Suroeste de Texas. Es un llamado a la acción contra el actual gobernador del estado, Humberto Moreira Valdés del PRI, por los ciudadanos de la Torreón, que ha sido golpeada con especial dureza de este año por la violencia, la delincuencia y los asesinatos perpetrados por grupos delictivos organizados.

    Muchos de sus electores desprecian el gobernador como el prototipo de la corrupción política en México hoy en día. Según rumores, es propietario de hogares valorados en millones de dolares en San Antonio, Texas y Vail, Colorado. Cómo estas propiedades se obtuvieron en el salario de un servidor público está abierto a conjeturas.

    Gobernadores se conocen como los "nuevos virreyes" del sistema político Mexicano. Ellos tienen el poder y el ejercicio mucho más que Gobernadores de los EE.UU. y en la mayoría de los casos no se responde ante el Presidente de la República. Ellos controlan el acceso a los fondos públicos en un sistema político que no se distingue por su transparencia.

    DE QUIEN HAY QUE RESCATAR TORREON?

    Estamos viviendo tiempos muy complicados con la violencia en todo el país, se ha recrudecido en Ciudad Juárez, pero creo que en segundo lugar se encuentra la Torreón, aquí ocurren por lo menos dos muertos diarios (de lo que se publica), pero existen otras cosas que no salen a la luz, como robos, asaltos, secuestros, violaciones, etc. que conoce uno a través de personas conocidas, cada vez más cercanas, y eso preocupa significativamente.

    Yo tengo una clara teoría sobre lo que está sucediendo, dicha teoría, esta sustentada en diferentes hechos y el análisis histórico de la situación política en nuestro país:

    El propósito inicial fué la recuperación de la Presidencia por el PRI, en acuerdo con los gobernadores y la implicación de personas del narcotráfico, iniciaron la desestabilización del país mediante balaceras, ejecuciones y algunos secuestros bien planeados.

    El tema de la consigna era: "La culpa la tiene Calderón y el gobierno federal por la guerra que desató contra el narcotráfico nosotros los angelitos gobernadores no tenemos nada que ver y cási creo que se declaraban víctimas"...

    Si se fijan, este ha sido el discurso de los gobernadores desde que esto empezó, el mismo tema y cási las mismas palabras.

    Pero la mayoria de los delitos acontecidos son del orden del Fuero Común, es decir, responsabilidad de los gobiernos de los estados y los alcaldes, pero como la gran mayoría de los mexicanos no pensamos, no analizamos, compramos bien comprados los comentarios de los señores gobernadores, transamitidos por los medios de información.

    Lo que vivimos, es consecuencia de que el PRI, desde hace muchos años, a través de negociaciones ingenuas, se alianzo con el crimen organizado para perpetuarse en el poder, esta situación hoy más que nunca se les fue de las manos.

    Gracias "señores" gobernadores por privilegiar sus intereses partidistas sobre el pueblo que desean seguir esquilmando.

    - Que la Historia se los demande, porque lo que es ahora, aventaron la piedra y estan bien escondidos atrás de los pantalones del Presidente Calderón, el único presidente del México actual que quiso enfrentar decididamente la drogadicción, la corrupción y la ilegalidad, pero efectivamente:

    LE FALLÓ LA ESTRATEGIA:

    Nunca contó con que los GOBERNADORES COMO MOREIRA estaban atrás de toda la corrupción que corrompe y le daña al pueblo- .

    YA ES HORA DE QUE DESPERTEMOS, DE QUE NOS UNAMOS Y NO DE ESTAR DESUNIDOS, INFLUENCIADOS POR LAS FUERZAS POLÍTICAS PORQUE ASÍ ES COMO NOS HACEN MÁS DAÑO.

    HAY QUE PEDIRLE CUENTAS A QUIEN HAYA QUE HACERLO
    AL ALCALDE OLMOS Y AL GOBERNADOR MOREIRA QUE ARREGLEN EL DAÑO TAN SEVERO QUE LE HICIERON A NUESTRA CIUDAD Y A NUESTRO ESTADO.

    OJO NO SOY PANISTA NI PERREDISTA, MUCHO MENOS PRIISTA, SOY ORGULLOSAMENTE APARTIDISTA
