Sunday's video: An update about the elections in Mexico

Lopez Obrador driving a lot of Mexicans loco

Over the last few weeks, I’ve spoken with lots of friends in Mexico.  Sooner or later, we end up talking about Andrés Manuel López Obrador, or AMLO, or L.O.  He is the candidate of Morena (his own very leftist party) and appears headed for a plurality victory between 25 and 30% in July.
Under the Mexican system, the top vote-getter wins, whether it is 25% or whatever.  It appears that three candidates will divide 90% of the vote this year, and one of them will win.  It’s a shame that PAN and PRI did not join forces and form a centrist coalition to stop the left, but that’s the way it is south of the border.
Mr. L.O. presents himself as the “anti-Trump.”  My guess is that he will get a Spanish show on MSNBC if he loses the election.
Mr. L.O.’s latest idea is to hold a referendum every two years, or a vote of confidence.  He has promised to resign if people are not happy with him.  It’s enough to drive the Mexican center into a rage, as we see in this report:
“Every two years there will be a popular consultation to ask if you want me to remain in the presidency or if I should resign,” Lopez Obrador said, in a brief speech after formally registering his candidacy with electoral authorities.  Mexican presidents are permitted only one term of six years, and the 64-year-old Lopez Obrador said last week he would not be seeking to change the law to allow him to run again.
As my friend said, “this is just what we need: a consultation every two years.  More marches…”
Mr. L.O. won’t get his way and will have to serve a full six-year term.  He is also promising to change things but not mess up the economy or foreign investment.  He’s been evasive about the energy reforms under President Peña Nieto, a good accomplishment.
We will see how it all turns out.  Mr. L.O. ran in 2006 and lost a very close election that bitterly divided the country.  He followed that loss with mass marches and threats of this or that.  He is promising an even bigger reaction if they “steal” another election from him.
My guess is that Sr. L.O. won’t be so lucky.  In other words, he is actually going to win and be forced to manage a country a lot more worried about personal security and shootings than President Trump or NAFTA.
Another friend said, “Faltan tres meses,” or three months left.  He is hoping for a miracle in a country a lot more cynical about the political class than the toughest “drain the swamp” American.

California city might challenge state’s sanctuary law

My guess is that you will see more of this:   "Los Alamitos might challenge California over state’s sanctuary law...."

It's a good move.  A few weeks ago, AG Jeff Sessions challenged the state's sanctuary city laws.    Stay tune.   California will lose if any of this goes to The Supreme Court.

Memo to McCade, Comey, Powers et al: Retain a lawyer

Mr. McCabe's firing is the first domino to fall in this sad story of corruption.   Get ready for more, as Roger Simon wrote:   
Friday's firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, based on a report from the Office of Professional Responsibility, is only the beginning of what is likely to be the most explosive series of revelations in American history.
Forget Watergate. It will be the distant past once the inspector general's reports—there apparently will be more than one—start to come out. This will be the "Gate of Gates."
From the FBI and across the intelligence agencies an astonishing number of people are going to find themselves accused, one can safely predict at this point, of some atrocious behavior in a free republic. 
And it will not just be the small change of Peter Strzok (the dimwitted director of counter-intelligence) and his gal pal Lisa Page.     It will include—on one level or another—James Comey, Loretta Lynch, John Brennan, James Clapper, Susan Rice and, almost inevitably, Barack Obama, not to mention others known and unknown.
The storm is here.
