Mexico’s President Stops Stampede To Recognize Biden
Nov. 14—When the U.S. media usurped U.S. law and declared Biden-Harris the victors of the U.S. election, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador informed reporters that Mexico would not congratulate Joe Biden or Donald Trump as the winner “until the electoral process is over…. We want to wait until the election in the United States is legally settled.”
López Obrador (often called AMLO) argues that it is not Mexico’s place to decide for U.S. citizens who won their election, while vote tallies are being challenged in U.S. courts. Such “pile-ons” of international “recognitions” were used against AMLO’s own presidential bid in 2006, while he and his supporters were mobilizing against the flagrant vote fraud used to impose his opponent, Felipe Calderón, in the Presidency.
Despite threats that if Joe Biden should become the next U.S. President, Mexico will face “reprisals” for this defense of United States’ sovereignty by López Obrador, he has refused to yield, as a matter of principle. In response to the threats, he instructed Mexican officials to not even accept calls from the Biden transition team, because it has not been legally certified as the next government.
AMLO, almost uniquely among world leaders, has dared to speak out publicly against the monstrous threat to the sovereignty of all nations represented by this Establishment stampede to use the media as a weapon to impose a Biden victory. Speaking to reporters on November 9, the Mexican President warned in particular of the implications of the media censoring Donald Trump’s November 5 address to the nation.
López Obrador has been clear that his government will work with whomever finally wins the U.S. Presidential election, and fully expects that relations will be friendly. At the same time, it is clear there is no love lost between Mexican nationalists and the Democratic Party of Obama-Biden. AMLO has gone out of his way more than once since the election to warn Biden and his team that should they win, his government will not tolerate the flagrant violation of Mexican sovereignty carried out by the Obama-Biden government’s covert “Fast and Furious” operation, which channeled top-grade military weapons to the drug cartels operating in Mexico.
While Mexico’s Establishment media and ancien regime politicians are outraged that López Obrador dares speak of the great battle taking place in the United States, many of his supporters are closely and enthusiastically following the ins and outs of President Trump’s battle to expose the clear vote fraud used against his country. Large social media programs associated with the AMLO camp are discussing the vote fraud as a continuation of the “coup” against President Trump and as a threat to Mexico.
Several have turned to the LaRouche movement for an evaluation of the strategic terms of this battle. Notably, EIR’s Mexico City correspondent, Gerardo Castilleja, has become a regular on Mexico’s Sin Censura YouTube program which broadcasts from Chicago.
Given that the international media have censored in great part what the Mexican President has actually said, EIR publishes here excerpts of his remarks.
AMLO was asked to further explain his position in his November 9 daily morning press conference:
A journalist asked AMLO if his government feared a Democratic victory, citing his statements on different occasions that more Mexican migrants were deported under Obama.
The following day, a Mexican journalist cited reports that the Biden team had requested that AMLO’s government accept a phone call to start coordinating future relations, even if it had not yet formally recognized his victory. López Obrador recommended the bullying stop.
