"… there is no such thing as nothing."

Mexico President Obrador Rejects Trump’s “Offer” to “Help” Mexico… Reckon Why?

Here’s the lowdown on the latest horrific murder of a Mormon family with USA/Mexico dual citizenship.

The LDS church (Latter Day Saint) denies association with them, i.e., they’ve already been “thrown under the bus” by their leaders because they were “fundamentalist” and practiced polygamy – an historical Mormon practice, which they now deny… because of historical political pressure.

The modern Republican party has pushed the “one man, one woman” Evangelical version of marriage, despite the fact that historically, Mormons went West to practice their faith without intrusion by government.

And yet… in 1862, Congress passed the Morrill Anti-Bigamy Act to prohibit that exclusively religious practice by Mormons.

So much for religious tolerance, eh?

A peace-loving family was killed yesterday (Monday, 4Nov19) by members of a global narcotrafficking empire, presumably the Sinaloa Cartel, over “turf wars” in the region.

Six children were among the victims of a massacre attributed to organized crime, relatives said. Other children hid by a roadside and survived.

MEXICO CITY — Three women and six children from a prominent local Mormon family were killed on Monday in northern Mexico, family members said, when gunmen believed to be members of organized crime ambushed their vehicles on a desolate road.

The attack alarmed a nation already reeling from record violence this year, and though its details remained murky it fueled criticism of the government’s strategy against the power of criminal groups.

Members of the LeBarón family, dual Mexican and American citizens who have lived in a fundamentalist Mormon community in the border region for decades, were traveling in three separate vehicles when the gunmen attacked, several family members said. They described a terrifying scene in which one child was gunned down while running away, while others were trapped inside a burning car.

In response, President Trump recently Tweeted (5Nov2019 0525 EST) that,

“A wonderful family and friends from Utah got caught between two vicious drug cartels, who were shooting at each other, with the result being many great American people killed, including young children, and some missing. If Mexico needs or requests help in cleaning out these…..

“….monsters, the United States stands ready, willing & able to get involved and do the job quickly and effectively. The great new President of Mexico has made this a big issue, but the cartels have become so large and powerful that you sometimes need an army to defeat an army!

“This is the time for Mexico, with the help of the United States, to wage WAR on the drug cartels and wipe them off the face of the earth. We merely await a call from your great new president!”

Naturally, Mexico’s President Andrés Manuel López Obrador rejected Trump’s “offer,” saying that, “We don’t think that by opening fire, massacring, using force, blood and fire, we will resolve this problem. We have to act independently and according to our constitution, and in line with our tradition of independence and sovereignty. War is irrational. We are for peace. It is a characteristic of this new government.”

Now, you tell me: You cuss and fuss at and about your neighbor, and then you expect them to play nice with you after tolerating your blatant abuse?

Come on!

American International policy is floundering under that man.

Trump is irrational, that’s for certain!
