Mexico and Our Elections
Brennan ignores the real threat

Vicente Fox Trolls Trump on Twitter: 'Are You a Legitimate President?'
  Former President of Mexico Vicente Fox took to Twitter on Friday to question the legitimacy of President-elect Donald Trump's election win.
Sr. Trump, the intelligence report is devastating. Losing election by more than 3M votes and in addition this. Are you a legitimate president?
    The Tweet comes after a declassified report on Russian interference into the U.S. election was made public.
    According to officials, Russia did try to influence the election, but there was no tampering with voting machines and the outcome of the election was not impacted.

Influencing Elections --- Russians are pikers
    Former Mexican President Vicente Fox suggests Donald Trump is not a legitimate president. Fox has long been an advocate of Mexicans in America to work to support Mexican interests. He once told La Opinion that he had instructed the Mexican Secretary of Foreign Relations to work through Mexican consulates to work with "Our countrymen" to defend the interests of the nation (Mexico) in that forceful border region."
    The idea of using Mexicans to work against American interests started in 1995 with Jorge Bustamante's, "How to fight against the Wilsons", in which he proposed dual citizenship so that Mexicans can vote against people like California's Gov. Pete Wilson who supported Proposition 187.
    After the 1996 passage of a new U.S. immigration law, Mexican President Zedillo said, "We will not tolerate foreign forces dictating and enacting laws on Mexicans."
    Two years later, Zedillo appeared at a Chicago meeting of the National Council of La Raza to announce the passage of a constitutional amendment allowing Mexican to retain their Mexican citizenship if they become U.S. citizens.
   I was interviewed by the NY Times for this 1998 story on Mexican dual citizenship.
    Here is the material I gave the reporter.
    And the 3 million "American" votes that Vicente Fox points to that gave Hillary the popular edge? --- it all came from California --- a place Mario Obledo called a Hispanic state.
    In California, Clinton won 80% of the Hispanic vote.
    In March of last year, it was reported that Mexico's was attempting to influence our elections.
    And that Mexico was helping people become citizens so they can vote in U.S. elections.
    Did Mexico influence the election in California? You bet your sweet ass they did. They even passed a constitutional amendment so Mexicans can vote "in the interest of Mexico" --- and 80% did.
    Compared to Mexico, Russians are pikers when it comes to influencing U.S. elections - but our CIA Director Brennan has said nothing about this real threat to our sovereignty.
