Protests against gas price hikes spread across Mexico


from the WSWS

Tens of thousands of Mexicans have taken to the streets in opposition to President Enrique Pena Nieto’s January 1 decision to slash gasoline subsidies, an action that will increase consumer prices by 14 to 20 percent in the coming year. Demonstrations against el Gasolinazo have grown with each passing day, spreading to every part of the country.

The protests have provoked a political crisis within the Mexican ruling class. “With the Gasolinazos, social irritation is growing to the point of converting itself into a general discontent that could overflow and become uncontainable,” reads an editorial in Tuesday’s Excelsior.

The demonstrations involve largely spontaneous actions by workers and youth as well as sections of the middle class. As of Wednesday night, truckers, taxi drivers and other protesters were once again blocking many of the major highways between cities after police had cleared them the day before.

Police have made several dozen arrests. On Wednesday, they confronted demonstrators in Mexico City.

Capt. Obvious, Chuck Schumer, Says Trump is Stupid for Questioning the Glorious CIA in Public Cus they can Fuck Him Up if They Want To

The CIA are the real terrorists. You don’t know that? You will.

During an interview with fake-left, red-baiting Rachel Maddow of the Corporate Scoop Jackson Dems, Sen. Chuck Schumer let a little truth slip out inadvertently when he told her President Elect Trump needs to be careful when he criticizes the CIA because they have ways to make folks pay for doing that.

In a recent interview with Rachel Maddow, undead Democratic neocon Chuck Schumer took a short break from leeching the life essence of gelflings to say that Donald Trump is being “really dumb” to take an antagonistic approach to the US intelligence community, because “if you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday to get back at you.”

He actually said that. It came right out of the slit in his naked mole rat face, plain as day, in the King’s good English.

Visibly taken aback with a transparent “Did you just say what I think you said?” look on her face, Maddow asked the new Senate Minority Leader what he thought the intelligence community would do to the President Elect if motivated, to which he replied, “I don’t know. From what I am told, they are very upset about how he has treated them and talked about them.” Newslogue

That’s right. The leading senator from the unDemocratic Party just told the world that the CIA will punish a seated president if he dares contradict the narrative they are trying to push about Russia. And they laughed about it. Haahaahaa. Isn’t that funny? We live in a totalitarian fascist state. Hohoho heehee.

Let that sink in for a second. I’ll wait.


Let’s forget for a second the last time a seated president dared to question the glorious CIA… he actually fired it’s director for lying to him and trying to start a world war… with Russia (oh what a coincidence). He got shot by the way and his successor, a corporate Scoop Jackson type Dem, appointed that same fired CIA director to help investigate the shooting of the president.. who fired him. Subsequently, the Magic Bullet was found guilty by that commission.

Haahaahaaa, hohohohoh, heeheehee… isn’t that funny…

Brittany Herring Video: Don Lemon of CNN Should be Fired Immediately

by Scott Creighton

I’m not going to get very far into this Chicago race baiting op too much but I have too say that Don Lemon of CNN is a pretty disgusting individual. Not only did he get sloppy drunk on national television on New Year’s Eve and lament that he didn’t have a boyfriend, last night he “corrected” a guest who thought the torture video of the young disabled man from Chicago was “evil”. Lemon said it wasn’t “evil”… it was just some “young people with bad home training”

The four black assailants in the Brittany Herring video kidnapped and tortured a young white man while constantly screaming racial slurs and obscenities at him. “Trump” was mentioned more than a few times as was the phrase “fuck white people”. The victim was beaten, kicked and at one point, forced to drink out of a toilet. He was supposedly held captive for 48 hours. There are several other videos out there of the torture they inflicted on him. Brittany Herring posted one live on Facebook which got all the attention.

This level of abuse in the mind of Don Lemon is not “evil” but rather just some young people with bad upbringing. In contrast, in the case of Dylan Roof, Don Lemon said he was a “terrorist” and at one time referred to him as “the devil

I don’t know if this whole thing was staged or not. The timing seems pretty suspect to me with the Dylan Roof conviction just last week and his sentencing hearing taking place right now. Also, this young woman, Brittany Herring, also goes by another name, Brittany Covington. Covington could easily be her real name and “Herring” of course could be a reference to a “red herring” but I can’t be sure of all that.

What I can tell you at this point is Don Lemon of CNN needs to be fired. If you reversed the racial roles on this story and some white CNN anchor came out and made such a racially insensitive statement off the cuff during an interview with a guest exposing his biased nature, that white anchor would be long gone by now and I think, race baiting psyop or not, Don Lemon needs to be fired immediately.

Of course… CNN has no credibility anyway. Just last week they got busted for using a screenshot from a video game in one of their stories about Russian “hacking” so… I don’t expect anything more from them in the first place. More likely than not, Don will get a raise and start dating his boss.
