Unanue, trump, truth

Incredibly, especially for those of us who called him our friend, 25 years have passed since the murder of fearless journalist Manuel de Dios Unanue, at a Spanish restaurant in New York City. The courage to expose Colombian drug capos and their poisonous presence in his city, cost him his life.

[OP-ED]: Women’s Forceful Message to Donald Trump

 03/07/2017 - 12:53

Nightmarish. That’s the best way to describe Donald Trump’s past few weeks in the White House. 

During those days he has seen his closest henchmen exposed as liars and cheaters –the most recent, his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, a man well known for his extremist racist ideology. 

Not surprisingly, they --Trump included-- deny any wrongdoing with a straight face while, as in some third-rate TV reality show, are doing the impossible to hide their suspicious dealings with the Russians and paint themselves as harmless patriots.

Los republicanos del Congreso y el equipo de transición de Donald Trump están explorando si puede cumplir con la promesa de Trump de un muro en la frontera entre Estados Unidos y México sin aprobar un nuevo proyecto de ley sobre el tema, dijeron funcionarios. AP

Sí, claro Mr. Trump, México pagará por el muro que Ud. quiere levantar en la frontera. Eso es lo que Ud. ha prometido desde que lanzó su campaña presidencial acusando a los mexicanos de violadores y criminales, ¿se acuerda?

 “Construiré una gran pared, y nadie construye paredes mejor que yo, créanme, y la construiré muy barata”, usted afirmó el 16 de junio del 2015. “Construiré una gran, gran pared en nuestra frontera sur. Y haré que México la pague”.
