If PRI Regains Control: Withdraw Military, and Return to a Pact with the Devil?

Pena rises, as cartels push to influence elections, in an unprecedented immersion.  A PRI victory has implications reaching across the border in a complete game changer for immigration, trade and the drug war...  Latest poll relfects a surge for PAN party candidate Josefina Vazquez Mota, who is now within striking distance to the once seemingly unreachable Pena.  Paz, Chivis

They made pacts with criminals, and now Peña Nieto, when the time comes, is going to say ‘I don’t know anything…” Silvano Aureoles
Peña Nieto
Sandro Mairata for Univision
The former Democratic Revolution Party (PRD) candidate for governor of Michoacan, Silvano Aureoles, was pretty straightforward when speaking to Milenio newspaper about the Institutional Revolutionary Party’s (PRI) political dealings.
In an interview published Wednesday, Aureoles stated: “We know how the networks at PRI work,” he said. “And we know the source of its former power: They made pacts with criminals, and now Peña Nieto, when the time comes, is going to say ‘I don’t know anything…’”
Enter Enrique Peña Nieto, the handsome 45-year old former governor of Mexico who, after Manlio Fabio Beltrones declined to seek the presidential nomination for the party, now has a clear path to run as the PRI candidate for the presidential elections. In a statement published in many newspapers on Tuesday, November 22, Beltrones – a senator who, by many accounts, is a savvy politician – said he stepped aside as a “contribution to the PRI victory in 2012” and “not as a sacrifice.”
After last week’s confirmation of Andrés López Obrador as PRD’s official presidential candidate, it’s only the National Action Party (PAN) that needs to select its candidate. The choice is between Sen. Santiago Creel, former Finance Minister Ernesto Cordero, and former Education Minister Josefina Vazquez Mota.
In any case, under Mexican electoral rules, candidacies won’t be official until March.
Peña Nieto, a widower who made headlines and magazine covers a year ago by marrying soap opera star Angélica Rivera, is the strongest candidate the PRI has had in years and provides hope to a party seeking to regain the power it held from 1929 to 2000.
Polls favor the Atlacomulco lawyer, and he’s been confident enough to speak about his own approach to the U.S. – Mexico relationship regarding immigration and the war on drugs.
“I think we need better regulation about the participation of the military,” Peña Nieto told Univision News in a recent interview, “and, gradually, I believe that the military forces need to go back to their quarters and … have civil institutions [fight] the crime organizations.”

Current president Felipe Calderón is a harsh critic of U.S. policies and is also reluctant to give meaningful interviews.
But drug cartels are casting their shadow over the elections. It was Milenio – via its TV network branch – that aired an audio recording of drug trafficker Horacio Morales Baca, aka “El Perro” (The Dog), intimidating people from two Michoacan towns. He threatened to kill them unless they voted for PRI candidate Julián Rodríguez Rosales for mayor of Tuzlanta.
Morales Baca is a member of the drug gang “La Familia” (The Family), a rival group of “Los Caballeros Templarios” (The Templar Knights), which is allegedly tied with some PRD candidates. Milenio reports that Silvano Aureoles, a PRD governor candidate, might have received $2 million from Los Caballeros Templarios, led by Servando Gómez Martínez.
After the tragic death of Interior Minister José Francisco Blake Mora in a November 11 helicopter crash, newly appointed Minister Alejandro Poire said: “From now until next year we have to do everything possible to guarantee a peaceful electoral process in which the expression of organized crime is eliminated.”
Many certainly hope so. In the meantime, now that it’s clear who the main contenders are, Mexicans would have to choose to whom they give a second chance: The narrow loser of the 2006 elections – when Calderón defeated López Obrador by 0.56 percent – or the former almighty political party that many attribute Mexico’s current accomplishments as a country to – as well as most of its problems.

Reuters) - Josefina Vazquez Mota, the first female presidential candidate from any of Mexico's three main political parties, is steadily rising in popularity and catching up to frontrunner Enrique Pena Nieto, a poll showed on Monday.

Vasquez Mota, from the ruling National Action Party (PAN), has 32 percent support ahead of the July 1 election, but is still trailing 16 points behind Pena Nieto from the opposition Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI....

The Church comes under fire:
The Roman Catholic Church in Mexico has come under fire for issuing voting “guidelines.” The “pastoral guidelines” do not mention any particular party, but dictate that Catholics should not “choose as a political option those who support or promote false rights or liberties that attack the teachings contained in the Holy Scriptures, tradition and doctrine of the Church.” They should also “be alert to the commitments of the candidates and their parties to respect the foremost of all rights, which is the right to life, from the moment of conception.”


According to The Associated Press, the recommendations seem to be aimed especially at candidates from the PRD, which legalized both  gay marriage and abortion in Mexico City  The document seems carefully constructed to skirt the ban on all religious groups from engaging in electoral politics. The law prohibits the church from  supporting or opposing a candidate or party. ..(Mexico Institute)
Left, Right, or Center? or Red, blue or yellow?  Mexican political brand names explained.

  3. The press have been silenced for fear of retaliation, the Sinaloa Cartel have been provided with AK-47's by Uncle Sam, and the Mexican people have been given few choices on how to choose their own destiny. But now the Catholic Church is, through their actions, calling out the cartels. Every historian knows that PRI and the Sinalao Cartel are "2 peas in a pod", but unfortunately the threat of violence is less by placating these criminal organizations instead of attempting to remove the influence from foreigners.FAST AND FURIOUS may be a blessing in disguise and that's because every single Mexican that votes have very strong feelings concerning the GRINGOS. If voting for PRI is considered handing over control of Mexico to the Sinalao Cartel and their American partners, PRI may lose by a landslide.

  4. ???? The part about the presidential race is VERY dated. PAN chose Josefina more than two weeks ago. Peña Nieto got the dedazo months ago. And the part about the Catholic Church? Why is it here?

  7. @9:18 what are you talking about, Pan is the Sinaloa Cartel's party. Chapo got out under Fox's watch, Chapo got all his power under Calderon's watch. The Beltranes decided to invade Gulf's Cartel territory under Fox's watch. Chapo decided to invade Juarez, under Calderon's watch. Oh yeah, Carlos Guillen was extradited to the US under Fox.
    If you were to read "down by the river", you would see that Juarez Cartel gave a lot of money to PRI.

  8. Face the fact people if PRI don't get into office everything will stay the same at least with the PRI in office everyone will stay under the radar like when Salinas was in office I say we need PRI if not we're screwed u all know that.

  9. While Vasquez Mota has surged in popularity, she still polls behind Peña Nieto by double digits.

    What Americans fail to realize is that Mexico faces issues far more profound that that drug war. Do you ever wonder why young people join Zeta affiliated gangs at an alarming rate? This is because there is little hope for upward mobility or a future in honest work in Mexico.

    The PRI has failed Mexicans in the past, while proclaiming they're the "people's party", but Peña Nieto at least offers lip service to providing economic security to Mexico's poor, while Vasquez Mota offers nothing but a continuation of the current policies that give away Mexico's vast resources to the robber baron elites.

    3. Yes it will be annexed. Mexico has proven over and over that it can't handle the cartels, so keep waiving that flag and playin that circus music everything is fine you dumb ass!

    5. Most Americans aren't hoping to take over Mexico, however we don't expect it to defeat the cartels. Actually, we don't expect anything from Mexico. It hasn't proven to be too functional of a country.

    6. @3:46pm. That is bullshit. I am a Mexican-American, served 12 years with the 82nd Airborne Division, with the Blue Falcons. I was a First Sergeant when I got out. I am from El Paso, TX. I drive a big truck for a living and work mostly the Northeast. I wear an Army Cap with my rank and an All Americans Patch, and they still call me a wet back or greaser. 50% of the people living in upstate New York and New England are like that, a bunch of racist assholes!

  10. I wonder which cartel owns Nieto? He should be able to line his pockets pretty well one he gets elected. Calderon has been a disaster - he wants to fight a war without having the cajones to be absolutely ruthless. I would fucking bomb Nuevo Laredo into the Stone Age.

  13. Once there was a boy at the beach selling crabs, he carried them in two different buckets in one he had Mexican crab and in the other American crab.
    A man stopped him to ask him why the bucket with the Mexican crabs didn't have a lid on and why the American crabs did.
    The boy replied "Because the American crabs were helping each other escape but the Mexican crabs once they saw another one trying to make it to the top they would pull it back down"

  16. The military needs to continue fighting this war against these cartels. Who in the right mind is gonna fight a ak-47, R15, 50 cals... Ect with rocks and sticks? And for little money?Mexico will not change from one day to another. It's not gonna matter who wins this election. It's up to us the parents to teach the young. Antes la gente Le temia a dios.

  17. Since this is a war between gangs over the lucrative drug trade--nei­ther of which is likely to stop before hell freezes over--I have a distastefu­l but practical proposal to start ratcheting down the collateral damage: back the Sinaloa and Gulf cartels against the far more violent Zetas. Chapo has always preferred bribery over bullets, though he's hardly averse to the latter ("plata o plomo"), and the PRI--who look to be about to come back to into power--are well known for having a high tolerance for corruption­. The deal the government would have to offer both cartels is that after the Zetas are neutralized they need to declare a truce, divide up the drug routes between them, and get along; in exchange the Federales quietly back off and focus on cleaning up the judiciary and the prisons. This is a highly Macchiavel­lian proposal, but then desperate times call for desperate measures. Plausible deniabilit­y all around, of course.

  18. Does anyone really believe that if the PRI returns to power and the military disengages from the fight to combat the cartels that local, State, and Federal forces can handle the problem. Wake up people!! The military is your most corruption free institution!!

  19. Josefina Vazquez Mota is the Minister of Education. If she were to win the presidency and run the country as she ran the education in Mexico, the country would be even worse off. Education in Mexico, whether public or private, is a disgrace. Too bad PAN can't come up with anyone better.

  20. The only pact with the devil is the one the PAN has sealed with the blood of their countrymen. It's laughable to think that people will elect the same failed party. Los fracasados Panistas, can put lipstick on a pig but it's still a pig. The US-financed civil war has to stop. Vota PRI!!

  21. @9;13

    It is difficult to generate interest in a foreign election. Whereas a couple of points were sightly dated they will be new to most of BB readers, I do not touch the text of an author, but I did fortify the main post with other essential facts and stories. You must have missed the first paragraph where I clearly state JVM the PAN candidate and featured her rise in the polls. 16% is a nothing lead and completely surmountable.

    CATHOLICS:
    2010 figures depict 85% of the country are Catholics, the greatest cath pop in the world except Brazil. Soical teaching has a strong influence by the church and like it or not a strong role of influence on society not by backing a party- but being vocal in support of candidacy that alligns with the church doctrine, and denounces those that do not.

    The church views this as a moral responsibilty.
    and though the influence is losing ground, what the church recommends is an important element in elections and one that must be brought to the table to offer a clear view....Paz, Chivis

  22. Got that right. I had a Mexican-American friend drive up to Indiana with his two brothers to buy a truck. All the way up and back they got the worst racist treatment. When they got back to the Texas border, they literally stopped, got out and kissed the ground they were so glad to be back in Texas.

  26. In a country that crime, drugs, rape, murder, kidnapping, and bribery are rampant, all the Catholic Church can come up with is to vote for the pro-life candidate. What an absolute joke for such a powerful organization to resort to a silly agenda rather than confronting Mexico's current leadership and the cartels addressing violence. That is why they continue appointing Popes that are dinosaurs that don't even speak a language people can confront them about. They are 60 years behind the times. Free birth control for any women that asks, please. Screw that old dinosaur pope. We have way to many people in the world for those idiots to even say that. Trust me, God don't care if we use birth control. He really doesn't. The Catholic Church is the best at oppressing women and here is another classic example of it. Lol, if a women gets a divorce, she is kicked out of the church. If a man does, it's ok.
