How they did it

Sleepy Joe Biden and Hoor Harris (waiting eagerly just offstage, and it won’t be long) did not win the U.S. presidential election fair and square, and I’m going to tell you what actually happened.

It was a three-pronged heist. One prong likely would have been unsuccessful. Two might have succeeded, but three made it a slam dunk.

No. 1 was ballot-box stuffing. There were videos of this happening. How extensive it was and how much it affected the outcome is unknown.

No. 2 was the Democrat Socialists’ using the Kung Flu hysteria to justify mail-in voting. Widespread voting by mail is an open-armed invitation to corruption, and it was corrupted big-time. Mail-in voting is imbecilic if one wants an honest election, which is why it’s done virtually nowhere in the world.

No. 3 was the daily campaign by the mainstream media to flagrantly mis-characterize President Trump. Fake News is real. The mainstream media such as CNN, The New York Times, etc., continuously lied about Trump’s historic deeds or simply failed to report them. Big Tech did the same. Joseph Goebbels would have been proud.

The third tactic resulted in millions of citizens — especially, but not exclusively, those who are marginally interested in current events, ie. the clueless — being ignorant and brainwashed, so they voted against Trump. Make no mistake, almost no one voted for Biden and Harris. They voted against Trump.

When leftist pundits insist Biden won the vote count, they may be right. But the situation is more complex than that. There is more than one way to corrupt an election, make it wrong, and those three factors did the trick.

I predicted on the morning of Election Day that the Democrat Socialists would steal the election, and they did.


In an historic ceremony today, an emotional Israeli President Reuven Rivlin welcomed the first-ever ambassador to Israel from the United Arab Emirates, the result of one of Trump’s Mideast peace initiatives, and one of the reasons he was nominated five times for the Nobel Peace Prize.

And a few days ago, after four years of relative quiet in the Middle East, thanks to Trump, Sleepy Joe Biden dropped some bombs on Syria. I have seen no stories about either event on The New York Times or The Washington Post websites.

How things are

Excellent video for you folks, which I bring to you as a community service. It’s half an hour, and I’m sure the leftists among you won’t bother, and some of you conservatives might not either, but it’s well worth the time spent. The professor calmly lays out interesting information that I had not seen elsewhere.

In Spanish, we would call this guy buena gente.

The bad smell

Successful civilizations come … and go. More often than not, it’s their very success that causes their departure. Sometimes they fall rapidly, mostly by military conquest, but other times it’s more gradual, and you get the first hint this way:

A bad smell.

Western Civilization now needs industrial-strength deodorant.

Academia has fallen — watch the video above by the perceptive Bill Whittle — and it’s impossible to overstate the significance of that. And recently, in the United States, democracy collapsed too. If you think Biden won 18 million more votes than Obama won in 2012, I have a London Bridge replica in Mexico’s northern desert you can buy for next to nothing.

The aroma grows worse by the day. If you don’t notice, it’s because you vote Democrat above the border, but the stench will overwhelm even you in time. Revolutions eat their own. Ask the French. And the Russians. And the Mexicans.

One aspect of the stink is the apologetic society.

Whittle addresses that beautifully in the video below.

Have a nice day. While you still can.

At times I feel like Winston Churchill talking to Neville Chamberlain.

Credit cards & corruption

Just back from the exercise walk today on a lovely morning.

When I arrived on the south side of the Rio Bravo these many years ago, I came with two credit cards, one from Wells Fargo, the other from a bank I now forget. I used the latter in 2003 to make monthly payments automatically for a Sky TV service. Sky almost immediately started to hose me, overcharging the card.

Oddly, the bank would not let me block future charges, so I had to cancel the card, leaving me with just one, the Wells Fargo. A year or two later, when I received a renewal card in the mail from up north, the fraud department wanted me to jump through so many hoops to activate it that I canceled it too. So, no credit card.

I started using a debit card online, which is a dreadful idea. I had two banks at that point, a Mexican account at Banamex, and a U.S. account at Banamex USA in Los Angeles. I finally obtained a Visa card from the Banamex account. It had a very low limit, the peso equivalent of about $150 U.S, so rule out a European splurge.

It was the same sort of starter card they offer campesinos.

My credit card history above the border was stellar, but credit history does not travel across the Rio Bravo. Down here, you start from scratch. Mexico has a credit bureau.

In 2014, due to the nincompoop FATCA legislation from the Obama Administration, Banamex USA closed my account with little warning, leaving me just the Mexican bank account with its almost useless credit card.

I was mad at Banamex in general, so I opened another Mexican account at HSBC only to learn it would not give me a credit card, in part due to my age. You read that right. HSBC is a nightmare bank. Avoid it. And I had canceled the Banamex account.

I then opened an account at BBVA Bancomer to have a fallback. After a wait of about three months, they gave me a Visa credit card with a free additional with my wife’s name on it. I have since requested a second one which also came with a free spouse card, plus the two have digital cards connected. So, all told, I have six Mexican credit cards.

BBVA Bancomer is an excellent bank. It has dropped the Bancomer name, and is just BBVA now. I have also tried out and found wanting accounts at Banco Santander and Banco Azteca. I investigated opening an account once at Banorte, but the woman with whom I was dealing briefly was so surly, I decided against it.

And I dumped the HSBC account. BBVA now serves all my needs nicely.

I have the BBVA app on my Motorola cell, and I check it daily. On two or three occasions, I found fraudulent charges. Since the cards never leave home, I wonder how that’s done. I suspect it’s bank employees. No matter, a phone call to the bank gets the matter resolved, the card in question cancelled, and a replacement rapidly arrives at my door.

Fraudulent charges, quite a lot, appeared on one of my cards just last week. Someone was having a field day purchasing goodies from Mercado Libre. A replacement card is en route. I’m a big fan of BBVA even though I do think it’s bank employees who occasionally buy stuff with my card. Let’s just call them bad apples.

From what I see on internet forums, lots, probably most, Gringos who move to Mexico live here for years without Mexican bank accounts and without Mexican credit cards, relying totally on their accounts up north. This often gets them into binds.

If you’re gonna live in Mexico, you need a Mexican bank and credit cards.


Now let’s turn to politics, always fun.

Have you heard about last week’s revelations in the New York Post that Hunter Biden, in cahoots with his creepy dad, aka The Big Guy, were selling access to the White House when Sleepy Joe was vice president?

Have you read about Facebook and Twitter censoring mentions of the scandal? And how that censoring is blowing up in their partisan faces? If you know little or nothing about these things, that means you get your “news” from The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, the Houston Chronicle and others of their ilk in the mainstream media.

All for now, amigos. Vote for Trump.
