They want to take us to a desert of illusions. Florestan.

The murder of the Jesuits Joaquín, 80, and Javier, 78, in the atrium of their church in the community of Cerocahui, in the municipality of Urique, in the Sierra Tarahumara of Chihuahua, where they have been carrying out missions for more than a hundred years, has shaken Mexico and the world and led Pope Francis, from the same Society of Jesus, to cry out for the murders in Mexico, as he did yesterday in the Wednesday audience, from his throne of Peter, in the Vatican.

And it is that both Joaquín, who would celebrate 50 years of being ordained on the 8th and many others of missionary work in those mountains, as well as Javier, 78, gave a name and a face to the statistics of death in Mexico, which so far of this century exceeds the casualties of the wars in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan.

In the three years, six months and 22 days of the government of President López Obrador, who was going to end the violence with his sole arrival in power, on December 1, 2018, intentional homicides as of yesterday total 124 thousand 245, that if this inertia is maintained, they will exceed 211,000 as of September 30, 2024, at the end of his government.

But it’s not just his thing.

This crime stat comes from the last century, but we’re going to leave it in this one. In the government of Vicente Fox, (2000-06) the balance was 60 thousand 280 intentional homicides; with Felipe Calderón, (2006-12) 120 thousand 463; and with Enrique Peña Nieto (2012-18), 156,066. And if we add them to those of the current regime, we reach 470,824 murders in these 21 years and six months, which exceed, I repeat, those of the bloodiest wars in history. this 21st century.

This is the reality today in a Mexico in which insecurity and violence have skyrocketed like never before, in the face of which President López Obrador cannot continue with the discourse of hugs and not bullets, because they are killing us.


1. QUALIFICATION.- Yesterday, the president reproached the corruption in the Judiciary and the slowness of the Attorney General’s Office, but reiterated his confidence in Arturo Zaldívar and Alejandro Gertz Manero, who are not under his regime, since the Court is an independent power and the Attorney General’s Office an autonomous instance, which shows that one is not so independent and the other not so autonomous;

2. BLACKOUT.- Really what things happen. Now in the Yucatan peninsula where after the first, two years ago, López Obrador guaranteed that there would never be another, like the one this week. The CFE reacted, but what was not going to be any more, a blackout, was repeated; Y

3. RISE.- Although the president does not like increases in interest rates to combat inflation, as he said last week, the governing board of the Bank of Mexico will raise an unusual three-quarters of a point today, in line with the FED, to leave interest rates at 7.75. And what’s missing.

See you tomorrow, but in private.
