Shhhh!!! Let's talk about...Mexico...
A huge bloodless revolution.

A popular "shadow government" formed in opposition to an elite, ivy-league educated "president" who won in a suspicious election.

Ballots burned.

Peaceful citizens take over the entire city of Oaxaca.

Hmmm, I wonder why the US propoganda machine doesn't want to talk about it?

6. If/when they report it....
it will be only to villify. Maybe throw in something about an attempted coup, maybe start calling Obrador (?) a terrorist, who knows?

2. All the propoganda...
All they want to talk about as it relates to Mexico is "illegal" immigrants and long fences to keep them out. But don't worry, all the things you mentioned will be used to demonize them further; you know, the news media's style of "reporting": up is down, war is peace, etc.

officially announce that it's all part of a bigger picture...that bigger picture being that the troubles in Mexico are a direct consequence in the creation of the new North American Union.

10. There was a photograph ..............
of peaceful citizen of Oaxaca filling up pop bottles with gasoline in the local paper here the other day. Seems like a foolish way to store gas.
