El Chisme es...

I really like what the Presidente is doing there. I just hope he does not become another political victim because he stepped on the wrong toe.

The great majority of Mexicans wish Presidente López Obrador success, but he's not going to have our support for long if he keeps lying and making up excuses for the things he does. Yesterday he claimed that he "consulted" with all the affected towns around the Sta. Lucia military base where he wants to build a new international airport for the metropolitan area of Mexico City and surrounding cities, but several of the affected communities at Sta. Lucia say he is lying, that they weren't consulted, and that they prefer their forests and their access to natural water instead of a noisy busy international airport. This is the same thing he did with previous "consultas populares" that were neither consultas nor populares. When, for example, out of 100 voters only one votes, that is not a "consulta popular", but that is basically what he's done with the project for the Texcoco airport and the Sta. Lucia airport and the Tren Maya in Yucatán. If he wants to make an Executive Decision then that's what he was elected to do, but lying to the people and calling it democracy is costing him credibility and support, and it's scaring away investors that we urgently need.
