    No point comparing which is worse, they’ll simply be different kind of bad.

    I don’t want Trump and I don’t want to be like France too.

    Just take CA/LA for example..., we’re probably as liberal and socialists as America can get... yet our social safety net somehow created a huge homeless problem. Yet, just to be unlike trump, LA would welcome and open up to more refugees...

    Having more Obama/Hillary will certainly make us look better and not be laughing stock of the world, but the establishment who has a stranglehold of our politicians have ran our world to the ground. Things are no longer functional. From financial crisis to strikes, regardless of party affiliation, we need to take our govt back.

    Status quo is what yielded Trump. Both status quo and Trump are bad. I really think it’s pointless trying to figure out which is worse. Time for a revolution.

    At least we could do a revolution now by using votes. Best not to wait until the kind of revolution that needs guns.

    Speaking of, Hillary did an interview on Howard Stern's Show of all places.



    That's the first part, there are five in total.

    This is great news. You don't know how much damage this one man caused to our system of justice.

    Interesting, which US officials?

    Did a quick google of this news and none of the article mentioned anything about corrupt US officials...

    He is being prosecuted in one of the districts of NY. He was slapped with the usual organized crime felony charges.

    Am I seeing right that he was in charge of going after the cartels, but he's been busted trafficking cocaine?

    That's what I saw...

    And I'd like to know which US officials he has purchased, but I couldn't find anything in any of the US media's report.

    He was the Secretary in charge of Public Security. Kind of like an all-emcompassing Homeland, Intelligence and Federal Police agency. Previous to that he had been the director of the FBI-equivalent. The Mexican War on Drugs was begun as a legitimacy dress for Felipe Calderon who "won" the presidency in 06 with a sophisticated fraud that included old-fashioned vote tampering and election authority buying with electronic measures and a media blackout.

    It's funny because the Mexican right wing has consistently being aligned with Democrats, but good ole Dubya had been pressing for a new version of Plan Colombia (the Merida Initiative) to be accepted by President Fox. After civic unrest and political mobilization (included the APPO 2006 protests) had crept on for months, in January of 07 Calderon announced the beginning of his War, as a rallying cry for the unity of Mexicans. Most people thought it was a business, because of the shady individuals connected to the Merida Initiative (on both sides of the river), we thought that García Luna was going to be a contractor by via of strawmen. At the time He was rumored to be running an industrial spying ring from the federal investigations agency.

    He later became known as Calderon's Executive Vicepresident.

    Spoiler:
    Executions, get it?

    García Luna's arrest will be shown tomorrow on national TV. It's going to be live!
