The good thing about this blog is that former Attorney General, Eric Holder, does not read it, but the best feeling about writing this sketch from Paris, France, right now, in 2020, is that we get to revisit 2011 for The PRESIDENT of the Administrative Tribunal in Paris.
For the record, “Fast & Furious“ one of the very consequential political threads that lead me, Armando Segovia, to knock on the door of the French Consulate in Los Angeles, California, in 2010 to see about documenting a Six–Year POLITICAL ELECTION PROCESS in Paris, during the Year of Mexico in France IS BACK IN THE NEWS.
Indeed, for all intent and purposes, it could be argued that during the Spring of 2011, the political party of the current Mexican President, Andrés M. López Obrador, was not officially constituted… but they (morena) did navigate Paris with the multi-purpose flag of a “Frente Amplio”, and the very mention of asking a question that included the words “Mexican army and Ciudad Juárez”, could and would get anybody blacklisted from “el movimiento”, which would in 2018 be renamed “La Cuarta Transformación”.
At this point in this section of the blog it should be noted that the focus of this post will not be on the forner Attorney General of The United States and the ATF’s involvement on a Crisis called “Fast & Furious”, sorry about that; but i will revisit AMLO’s people issue with getting the Mexican army back on the streets.
Additionally, it should be noted that along with that particular presidential decree (the army on the streets) AMLO’s Foreign Relations minister (and former Hillary Clinton‘s Latino outreach go-to-guy) is requesting from THE TRUMP administration that they release all of the files and records available regarding the weapons running program Rápido y furioso. How convenient, eh‽ The government of Mexico opening old wounds to dismiss any criticism from one of the promises that got AMLO the top post in the Mexican federation, while indirectly hitting the flanks of the Obama Administration on the same 72 hours of the week when Donald John Trump is letting his personal political lawyer, attorney general William Barr, loose on a lie called “obama gate”.
Why it matters… after a nap, i’ll let you know, but before that here is a paraphrased echo from 2016:
If someone tells you that they have the Mexican vote, you better believe that MARCELO is going to fight for it.
