The mainstream media has been defending morally corrupt anti-democracy dictators for a long time, and especially if it fits their anti-Trump bias.
Remember when Cuban dictator Fidel Castro passed away?
Democrats and the liberal media praised the 90-year-old after his death, as if he didn’t wreak havoc and compromise American freedoms.
President Trump and Vice President Pence immediately took to public social media platforms following Castro’s death to appreciate the silver lining of a corrupt dictator’s death and what it means to the rest of the free world.
The same thing, however, goes for how the mainstream media has been treating Mexico’s President, Enrique Peña Nieto, and his anti-Trump rhetoric regarding building the much needed USA-Mexico border wall.
The media has been praising his “valiant effort” of ignoring President Trump’s enormous concern of preventing criminal illegal immigrants from penetrating our border and taking advantage of their Democrat-given benefits.
But what you might not know is the Mexican President has unequivocal ties to the Mexican drug cartel.
President Nieto’s ties to cartels include the mysterious release from prison of drug kingpins and regions of Mexico that are under operational control of these paramilitary trans-national criminal organizations that during his presidency are rarely, if ever, reported on in the U.S.
There has also been an unprecedented and outrageous number of journalists who have mysteriously disappeared under Nieto’s reign.
But the mainstream media doesn’t want you to pay attention to that.
According to Breitbart:
Last year, Breitbart Texas reported on an investigation that revealed that a series of shell companies had been used by members of the Juarez cartel to funnel funds into Pena Nieto’s 2012 election.
The investigation was carried out by Mexican award-winning journalist Carmen Aristegui and her team; the subsequent scandal became known as Monexgate for the cash cards that were given out during Peña Nieto’s campaign.
Those journalists have been under criticism by the Mexican government after discovering the cartel finance link, as well as the fact that Peña Nieto had received properties as bribes from government contractors.
A few examples of the current Mexican president’s softness towards his nation’s drug cartels provide some insight into the realities in Mexico that are ignored by U.S. media.
In addition to receiving funds from cartel operatives, Peña Nieto’s campaign was run by another politician who has been singled out in international court hearings as a surrogate for Los Zetas.
During the 2012 campaign, the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) was run by Humberto Moreira. Before running the PRI and Peña Nieto’s campaign, Moreira was the governor of the border state of Coahuila. During his time as governor, Moreira worked as a surrogate of Los Zetas by giving free reign to the criminal organization in exchange for cash bribes.
Once in power, Los Zetas carried out a series of massacres in that state where in one case alone 300 victims, including women and children were kidnapped, murdered and incinerated in a network of ovens at government facilities.
Not only were the victims incinerated inside 55-gallon drums inside a state-run prison, Mexican cartels grew in power as his government appeared to be unable or unwilling to stop the cartel violence.
That’s exactly why President Trump has taken a strict stance on keeping Mexico out since his presidential campaign.
Not only does the mainstream media try to paint Nieto as a symbol of defiance to the anti-Trump movement about not paying for the wall, but Mexican officials keep touting the rhetoric that they’re trying to improve security conditions. Which reality do you live in?
