A COUP D’ETAT IS BREWING in Mexico. Even as he runs out of legal ways to challenge the July 2 presidential election results, the contest’s sore loser, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, is planning to proclaim himself president and establish a parallel “people’s government” on the national Day of Independence, Sept. 16.Note to all you 'globalist' sorts who like open borders, I will weep piteously when your jackass investments in ole Mexico tank, really, no really.
The defiance by the leftist former mayor of Mexico City comes after a unanimous ruling Monday by the nation’s top electoral tribunal, which rejected claims filed by Lopez Obrador’s party of massive fraud. Lopez Obrador, who finished second in the balloting, has been waging an increasingly desperate campaign to have the election nullified. The independent panel of seven electoral justices reviewed 9% of polling places where it had reason to suspect error, and it threw out tens of thousands of ballots.
The net result of the review was to reduce conservative candidate Felipe Calderon’s nearly quarter-million-vote margin by about 4,000 votes. The tribunal has until next Wednesday to certify the election results.
Lopez Obrador’s supporters have shut down much of Mexico City in acts of civil disobedience, and they appear intent on making the country ungovernable.
Oh, and may we build the damn wall now? Please?
