Wonder why Mexican media shy about NXIVM? 121 Mexican candidates killed this election season!!

According to Telesur there have been 121 political candidates killed in Mexico this last campaign season.
This might explain why Mexican mainstream media has been a little shy about writing too much about NXIVM – considering the ties it has with Emiliano Salinas, son of the brutal and murderous former president of Mexico, Carlos Salinas.
One Mexican journalist from one of the largest media outlets told me personally that if Carlos Salinas knew he was going to write about his son and NXIVM, Carlos would have him killed.
At the time, I thought he was being melodramatic. But the story below makes me reconsider.
Carlos Salinas has a high turnover in friends. One day he meets a guy and then he never sees him again.
Here is the English translation of the story. 

Fernando Angeles Juarez, the mayoral candidate for the Democratic Revolution Party in Ocampo, was gunned down leaving his hotel Posada del Bosque in the state of Michoacan. Angeles died at the scene and no suspects have yet been identified.

His death brings the number of politicians murdered since September 2017 to 121, making this the most violent electoral season in Mexico’s history.

Hours before, Omar Gomez Lucatero, an independent candidate for mayor of Aguililla in Michoacan, was murdered Wednesday night next to the local cemetery, close to a military barracks.

The governor of Michoacan vowed to carry out detailed investigations to find the people responsible.

“I express my firm compromise to find the people responsible of the murder of Omar Gomez Lucatero, a mayoral candidate for the Aguililla municipality, in events that took place a few moments ago, and bring them to justice.”

According to local newspapers, Gomez was shot dead exiting his home in Las Palomas community, in Tierra Caliente. The region is located between the states of Mexico, Guerrero and Michoacan, and is plagued with criminal organizations, including the Jalisco Nueva Generacion and the Nueva Familia Michoacana cartels.

In a video uploaded to social media, the cousin of Gomez Lucatero says an armed group arrived at the candidate’s house and forced everybody to leave before executing him. He blames the local candidate of the Revolutionary Institutional Party (PRI), Osvaldo Maldonado, for the murder.

Gomez was running as an independent candidate after he left the PRI. He became the mayor of Aguililla shortly afterward in 2014 when Jose Cruz Valencia was arrested and had to leave office.

Angeles and Gomez are the latest victims of attacks against local politicians running for office in the upcoming elections. Similar attacks recently killed Alejandro Chavez Zavala, who was running for mayor of Taretan, and Miguel Amezcua Manzo, aspiring town councilor of Santiago Tangamandapio, both in Michoacan state.

Chavez and his wife, Mary Dimas, were shot by an unknown assailant driving a black Ford Lobo while leaving the city following a campaign event. Alejandro’s brother, Julio Chavez Zavala, took his place in the presidential race.

According to consulting firm Etellekt, there have been 121 murders and 400 attacks against politicians since September 2017. Out of the murdered, 29 were precandidates and 16 candidates, and 80 of them belonged to opposition parties. The rest were mayors, former mayors, militants, social leaders, councilors or representatives.

The same firm also recorded 351 murders against non-elected government officers.

In Mexico the NXIVM scandal is only a sideshow in the pervasive corruption of Mexico’s political and business elite.
Mexico is on the verge of being a failed nation.

These facts bring me great pain to even recount.
The Mexican government is fighting at least seven well-armed drug cartels with numerous small cartels adding to the violence.

Gulf Cartel
Guadalajara Cartel
Sinaloa Cartel
Milenio Cartel
Beltrán-Leyva Cartel
Tijuana Cartel
Juárez Cartel

Since 2006 perhaps as many as 200,000 Mexicans have died in the Mexican drug war, many of these victims being innocent bystanders.
In recent years the bloodshed appears to be getting worse.

By Year
Total homicides attributable to organized crime: 200,000[73] (various estimates): 83,191 during Felipe Calderon’s administration;[74] 23,640 in the first 14 months of Enrique Peña Nieto’s administration[75]

62 killed in 2006[76]
2,837 killed in 2007[76]
6,844 killed in 2008[76]
11,753 killed in 2009[76]
19,546 killed in 2010[77][78]
24,068 killed in 2011[79][80][81]
18,061 killed in 2012 (by 31 October 2012)[82]
23,640 killed in 2013 (through to March 2014)[75][83]
23,000+ killed in 2017 [84]
Total displaced: 1.6 million

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest.
