AZ central (Subsidiary of USA TODAY) published a hit piece on Mexican Presidential Front runner Lopez Obrador.
With the headline: Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is America's worst nightmare they led into a theme of how Obrador is going to turn Mexico into Venezuela. That's B.S., the reality is that the American media is bashing Obrador the way they did Trump, because Obrador is Mexico's Trump. If Obrador gets his way once elected, Mexico is going to absolutely explode upwards economically. Here's why:
1. Oil exploration and exploitation by Mexicans in Mexico, not foreigners in Mexico, will begin.
2. Foreign corporations will be regulated and taxed, and huge monopolies that cause prices in Mexico to be outrageous on tech items and many other items will be broken. Obrador is pissed at monopolistic predatory practices of a few elite Mexicans, and foreign corporations in general. And from what I see, it definitely is a problem here.
Obrador will also clean up the horrendously corrupt importation process, and actually make it possible for Mexicans to buy things online (currently everything gets stolen via bullsh*t customs paperwork excuses - if you are not "in" they will hold your item and charge you approximately $100 USD per day for "storage" until you tell them to keep it and then they "legitimately" steal it, and that's not an exaggeration) I have been through this and Obrador is going to CLEAN HOUSE with this because that's no way to run a country! So naturally, the people who benefit from this type of corruption want Obrador stopped at all cost.
3. Obrador wants to make peace with the drug lords. Here's how it goes, seriously: If you tell the drug lords they won't be prosecuted or pursued, and that they have safe haven, in exchange for getting rid of the crap that murders in the streets, all of a sudden no one gets shot or robbed in whatever area a particular drug lord controls because the drug lords clean it all up a hell of a lot better than the police do.
Obrador is not stupid about this, the cities where such deals are made have become islands of safety. Obrador is smart enough to know the cartels are simply too powerful to beat, and though it would obviously be better to not have them at all, if they can't be beat, strike a deal and everything becomes a LOT safer. Surprisingly, the drug lords live up to the conditions of a deal better than the government does, EVERY TIME. Obrador is very wise in saying that if you can't get rid of the problem, strike a deal with it for a much better country. It has worked everywhere it has been tried.
4. Obrador wants to make Mexico self sufficient. The country is amazingly capable, but it is being sabotaged by international interests (new world order types) that want to keep Mexico in a position where it can be threatened. Initially, Obrador wants to at least make Mexico independent of food importation, by boosting agriculture and getting all foods grown and produced locally. This should not be difficult to accomplish, there's really no excuse for Mexico to be dependent on anyone this way.
5. It is apparent but not officially stated that Obrador wants to curtail the liberal crap in academics to prevent a Mexican outcome that mirrors what is going on in America now, in addition to curtailing "family services" that take kids out of decent homes, in addition to getting rid of policies that undermine families. Obrador appears to be the "anti-feminist". That's badly needed now, the acid has been applied to Mexico and will absolutely eat the nation if something is not done to stop it. Unlike America however, it is not too late to stop it. Mexico can still be saved.
Since feminism and destruction of the family, and having the state be able to take kids on a whim is a cornerstone of a communist takeover, obviously Obrador is going to be hated and called a nutcase by people in the media who are the spokespeople of that particular effort.
You'll hear all kinds of crap in the news about how bad Obrador is for America, and how horrible he is, and that he'll turn Mexico into Venezuela. FACT: Anaya will turn Mexico into Venezuela, not Obrador. FACT: OBRADOR WILL TURN MEXICO INTO 1950'S AMERICA, AND THAT'S THE DEAD LAST THING THE NEW WORLD ORDER WANTS. So all you will get from any media source is CRAP.
