Nov 29, 2017

Members of the United Nations Security Council strongly condemned North Korea’s successful launch of an intercontinental ballistic missileduring an emergency meeting in New York on Wednesday, during which US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said the rogue regime’s actions have brought the world “closer to war.” “The dictator of North Korea made a choice yesterday that brings the world closer to war, not farther from it,” Haley said. “We have never sought war with North Korea, and still today we do not seek it. If war does come, it will be because of continued acts of aggression like we witnessed yesterday.” “And if war comes, make no mistake, the North Korean regime will be utterly destroyed,” she added. Haley requested the emergency meeting with her counterparts from South Korea and Japan shortly after North Korea’s launch on Tuesday. New missile test shows North Korea capable of hitting all of US mainland “Yesterday, the North Korean regime made a choice. It chose to feed its nuclear aggression. It chose to thumb its nose at the civilized world. It chose to challenge the patience of a world united against its recklessness,” Haley said. “As successful as we have been in leveling multilateral sanctions against it, the North Korean regime continues to test new and more powerful missiles. And as it does, it continues its march toward a functional nuclear arsenal,” she said. Haley stressed that the nations of the world “have it within our power, to further isolate, diminish, and, God willing, reverse the dangerous course of the North Korean regime” and called on all nations to “cut off all ties with North Korea. “In addition to fully implementing all UN sanctions, all countries should sever diplomatic relations with North Korea and limit military, scientific, technical, or commercial cooperation,” she said. “They must also cut off trade with the regime by stopping all imports and exports, and expel all North Korean workers.” UN Security Council President Sebastiano Cardi of Italy also strongly condemned the actions of North Korea on Wednesday, particularly the recent ballistic missile launches. North Korea claimed Tuesday to have successfully tested a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile, topped with a “super-large heavy...

A representative for the pilot’s union did not immediately respond to a request for comment. As a result of the protest, the company reported on its Twitter account at least 32 canceled flights on Tuesday from Mexico City, primarily to domestic destinations. Various flights were also delayed due to fog in the area. New regulations to protect travelers and compensate them for cancellations and delays have gone into effect in Mexico this year.

Demonstrator busted, maquila neocolonialism and the “unveiling” of a candidate

Demonstrator busted, maquila neocolonialism and the “unveiling” of a candidate

Nov 29, 2017

GILA MONSTER THE BAJA POST Jorge Benítez, peculiar character likes to express his disagreement with the Government, it’s his right. But breaking into a public school to insult with a bullhorn is not legal. The children of the school are a Principal’s responsibility who must look after their physical and mind integrity. Benitez has done several and gotten away with them, he confronted a journalist a few weeks ago. He attacked a Congresswoman from behind and he tore her blouse, alleging “social struggle”. “He did it defending the people’s rights, he represents the people”, Mexicali Resiste members say. Parents must surely disagree their children to be exposed to a stranger breaking into the school. In the middle of the official act, shouting insults and calling names, placing the students at risk. Freedom of speech, concept which is limited by other people’s rights and the school must look after the children. Benitez must understand that he went too far this time, but it’s a fact that he won’t spend too long in jail. On other subject we are still the backyard of the USA, and attitudes such as Salvador Maese’s prove it. Maquila industry leader, he strolls and marches at the pace that the global corporations mark. He doesn’t foster the technology transference, he doesn’t take the workers in consideration when he reasons. He has asked to keep low salaries so workers don’t go to another company where they’re better paid. Alejandro Martinez Yllescas, Director of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development concurs with Maese. We have a “Manufacturing Bonus” he said in his recent visit to Mexicali when he was questioned. The question was: Why isn’t  there a real Mexican Industry and we are limited to be a “maquila” Paradise? It would be interesting to have a direct answer from Maese or Martinez Yllescas regarding this topic. To wrap this up, Mexico has taken a step back, returning to the PRI past and its veiled almighty candidates. Jose Antonio Meade has been “appointed by President’s Peña’s finger” as PRI 2018 Presidential candidate. Meade, a technocratic dinosaur but foreign to Atlacomulco Group was “unveiled” as PRI candidate. The cavalry charge is back once again,...

According to REUTERS, two human heads were discovered in a cooler outside an office of broadcaster Televisa in the Mexican city of Guadalajara, authorities said on Tuesday. It was not clear who the heads belonged to, but the cooler contained a threatening message signed off with “CJNG”, the Spanish initials of a drug gang, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel, a security official in the western city said. A second official at the office of the Jalisco state prosecutor said the cooler was left outside an office of the Televisa station. However, media in the state suggested the gruesome find was directed at an official, not at the broadcaster. Elsewhere in the city, authorities found a second cooler containing a message threatening a judge, and a bag with suspected human remains with another threat, the second official added.  Two human heads were left inside an icebox at Televisa Guadalajara office parking lot Both officials declined to be identified. In recent years, the CJNG has become one of the most powerful Mexican drug gangs, and authorities blame it for violence that has convulsed much of central and western Mexico....
