Mexican writer Diego Enrique Osorno published a book about the mysterious Carlos Slim entitled “Slim: A Political Biography of the Richest Mexican in the World.”
Slim is allegedly one of the wealthiest men in the world with an estimated net worth of $70 billion.
Osorno said he spoke to over 100 people when researching the Slim bio. Most interviewees would only speak “off the record.”
“Fear of talking about Slim was so huge, that even two former presidents who had initially given their approval to include their statements in my book, later asked the statements to be pulled,” he said.
“There is great fear to speak of Slim. … and is the reason why there is very little information … there is fear Slim will carry out reprisals,” he added.
There is one ex president not afraid of Slim. In fact Slim’s fortune may belong to this ex president — Carlos Salinas de Gortari.
Slim became wealthy because of his ties to Salinas.
As president, Salinas privatized monopolies, selling Tel-Mex, the Mexican national telephone company, to Slim for $400 million. The company was said to be worth over $12 billion at the time of the transaction in 1989.
Telmex reportedly controls 94 percent of landlines and 75 percent of cellphone services in Mexico, with rates among the highest in the world. On paper, Slim owns about 2,000 other companies, including construction, finance and others.
Many believe Salinas is the true owner and Slim his frontman, laundering the huge fortune Salinas stole from Mexico.
Salinas reportedly stole another $10 billion from the Mexican people in addition to what he laundered through Slim. Dow Jones and Company named Salinas to their board because he invested over $10 billion in Dow Jones stocks and components after leaving office.
Not bad for a man who worked at public jobs his whole life.
The question was raised as to whether people were scared of speaking of Slim or actually very scared of Salinas, who is said to be the most powerful person in Mexico.
Salinas has a murderous history: PRI president and possible future presidential candidate Francisco Ruiz Massieu — and PRI presidential candidate Donaldo Colosio — were murdered allegedly under orders from the Salinas family.
It was well known that Salinas appointed leaders of the drug cartels when he was president.
Slim’s fortune allegedly was enhanced from arms and drug trafficking, taking orders from Salinas.
Slim is “the frontman for the ‘little man from Agualeguas’ (Salinas’ hometown in the northern state of Nuevo Leon), who ransacked Mexico like no other,” Votairenet said.
They say Carlos Slim is a Mexican drug lord. And the boss of bosses is Carlos Salinas. That’s what many believe: drugs, guns, and stealing the nations’ assets.
Boss of bosses, Carlos Salinas, and his under-boss Carlos Slim.
Ironically, Carlos Salinas’ son, Emiliano, is a member of a strange cult that cattle brands women and blackmails them to ensure their silence. Emiliano is so brainwashed, he blindly follows the cult leader, a psychopathic dictator named Keith Raniere whose followers refer to him as Vanguard.
Emiliano may be used to having authoritarian psychopaths dominate his life. His father is one, if the reports about him are one quarter true. For Emiliano, Keith Raniere might very well be Carlos Salinas lite.
And, all of this is pretty scary because Emiliano professed to be a Nexian to get to the roots of corruption in Mexican society.
Obviously, he is a soul searcher and was attracted to Nx and KAR for answers. It’s just that apples don’t fall far from trees sometimes…A sad story, overall.
We should all be able to add enough for 20 commandments.
Number 5, anyone?
5. Thou shalt covet many asses and asses of asses, until all asses are thy ass.
6. Thou shalt eat all the pies and bid the hungry thin their gruel.
There Must be a few more we can come up with😀
It looks like if things turn unfriendly for Keith in Mexico, the Bronfman fortune may not protect him.
But those Bible quotes don’t matter. Raniere is, as we all know by now, the self-proclaimed God and ruler of the Universe. He writes the rules, guys.
Maybe Keith will favour us with his version of the ten commandments.
That should be entertaining.
All universal wisdom matters more than the wee maggot Raniere!!!
You ask for his Ten Commandments? Be sure and check the patent office- you might have given him an idea for a little project to do while on his travels in the wilderness!!!
The patent office, huh? Maybe he’s trying to patent an invisibility cloak, as that might be the only thing that will help him now.
I’ll start you off on your revised list of the ten commandments, Keith.
(Keith”s version… )
1 ) Thou shalt delete all evidence which may incriminate one’s self.
2) Thou shalt toss, under the bus, all who no longer serve a purpose or who no longer continue to provide cash.
3. Thou shalt meet all allegations of wrongdoing by running like the wind.
4. Thou shalt endlessly litigate against justice with the riches of others.
“I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”
Jesus was obviously speaking in hyperbole and making a bigger point.
People profess to be self-sufficient and independent, but everyone’s a “slave” to something. You just have to choose the right master.
The women of DOS didn’t.
Hear, hear, Scarrom! And a little more from Isiah 47:11 predicting the fall of Babylon:
…You felt secure in your wickedness and said, ‘No one sees me,’
Your wisdom and your knowledge, they have deluded you;
For you have said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one besides me.’
But evil will come on you Which you will not know how to charm away;
And disaster will fall on you For which you cannot atone;
And destruction about which you do not know
Will come on you suddenly.
Stand fast now in your spells And in your many sorceries
With which you have labored from your youth;
Perhaps you will be able to profit, Perhaps you may cause trembling.…
I believe real people wrote the Bible to record knowledge concerning human nature and governance that often remains relevant and true.
Being rich has nothing to do with being a psychopath. And you are talking like a person who will always be poor. Carlos Slim and Carlos Salinas (if true) seem like psychopaths. They could have been poor and been psychopaths or be rich. It’s irrelevant. if you are a bad person, you are a bad person. There’s a lot of rich people that do good in the world. The problem is sociopaths and psychopaths and this organization created them and attracted them. It’s unfortunate when rich people are psychopaths as they have more means to do evil. But poor psychopaths often have nothing to lose and destroy a lot of people too.
