Three years later, the shortage of medicines is not resolved, in the morning the president repeats over and over again that they found a monopoly and the concentration in 10 companies that, according to him, earned billions of pesos, he does not present evidence and fewer legal resources …
It is history from day one, the acquittal of one’s own and the condemnation of others regardless of what it is or the evidence that is presented.
The fight against corruption was one of the promises that the presidency gave López Obrador, only that to date everything is speculation and baseless accusations.
The most recent was after the report Saving lives and the chocolate factory, President López Obrador charged against the media that spread it, but at no time did he deal with the content, just like a week ago with the Latinus report on the irregularities in the Army tenders at the Santa Lucía airport, although in this case it went further by issuing an agreement to give itself all the facilities in the construction of works sheltered from the information reserve with the usual national security.
The military followed the presidential model, there is no evidence, less research, they believe that their word is enough.
Three years later, the shortage of medicines is not resolved, in the morning the president repeats over and over again that they found a monopoly and the concentration in 10 companies that, according to him, earned billions of pesos, he does not present evidence and fewer legal resources; Along the way, some laboratories like Pisa have paralyzed plants that produce anticancer drugs, among others. A very different treatment was given to his sponsor and owner of pharmaceutical companies, Carlos Lomelí, who has received juicy contracts since the days of the Federal District government.
The frequent disqualifications are also focused against the Spanish Iberdrola, which, according to López Obrador, committed a serious offense by including former president Felipe Calderón and who was his energy secretary on its board of directors, although there is no lack of involvement, both have the qualifications and there is no legal limit to advise the company, but the president liked it to vent his phobias against the Spanish.
Several journalists and the media have been the target of his unsubstantiated speeches, especially because of the contracts they received from previous governments, their denials have not been accompanied by evidence, to him an advertising contract like the ones that his government has been granting seems illegal. to the media that enjoy their sympathy.
With their own, the opposite happens, ignores the indications or offers strange explanations, such as their justification for the appearance of the secretary of communications in the Pandora Pappers or the forgetful senator Guadiana.
With his brothers he only responded to the first videos, he said that Pío received money to support his movement, he resorted to historical passages that have no parallel with a political party that receives prerogatives. After knowing the second installment and that of his brother Martín, he said the usual: they are our adversaries who want to damage the project. With cousin Felipa he reacted by asking that the contract with Pemex be reviewed and nothing else.
The same presidential benevolence received the accusations to Bartlett and his children, Irma Eréndira Sandoval, Ana Gabriela Guevara, Zoé Robledo, his private secretary, the director of Pemex, his propagandist Epigmenio Ibarra and others.
At the bottom, there are voices that assure that corruption in the federal government is the same or worse. Faced with the findings, the president does not order investigations, he only talks, talks and talks.
Half the time of his term has passed and his accusations do not bear the burden of proof.
