Former Mexican Official Accuses Carlos Salinas of Corruptly Helping His Son, Nxivm Leader, Emiliano Salinas

Former director of Pemex, seeking to reduce his prison sentence, alleged Carlos Slainas and other politicians were involved in bribes and, in Salinas’ case, threats…

Emilio Lozoya, the former director of the Mexican government-owned Petróleos Mexicanos (Pemex) under president Enrique Peña Nieto (2012-2018), denounced his former boss and two other former presidents: Felipe Calderón and Carlos Salinas de Gortari, and other high-level officials in a complaint filed last month.
Lozoya is making his complaint [or denunciation] to avoid prison time for himself for his role in corruption at Pemex, which controls petroleum in Mexico.

While Lozoya accused a number of officials, readers will be interested to hear about Carlos Salinas, who Lozoya calls a “PAN commissioner and lobbyist.” PAN is Partido Acción Nacional, a conservative political party in Mexico.

Emilio Lozoya also targeted Carlos Salinas de Gortari in his lawsuit (Fotoarte: Steve Allen / Infobae México)

Lozoya refers, in his 63-page lawsuit, to Salinas claiming that Federico Martínez Urmenta, CEO of the Mexican construction company Tradeco, told President Peña Nieto in 2013 that he and his partner, Salinas, were adding votes to PAN to approve energy reforms [that would benefit themselves].

In addition, Lozoya in calls to advise Jose González Anaya, a Pemex advisor, asserted that “Salinas was lobbying in favor of his son’s projects.”

What is interesting for Nxivm followers is the family connections.  Carlos’s son, Emiliano, was the leader of Nxivm in Mexico.

Emiliano Salinas, his wife, Ludwika Palata, and father, Carlos Salinas.

Gonzalez Anaya is the brother of Alejandra Gonzales Anaya, who is the co-founder of Anima, one of Nxivm’s offshoots, which she founded with Keith Alan Raniere, the worldwide leader of Nxivm.

Alejandra might have also co-founded something else with Raniere. He is rumored to be the father of her young child. Anaya has refused to disclose the name of the father.

Alejandra Anaya was promoted to Proctor [Orange Sash] with the approval of the Vanguard, Keith Alan Raniere. Did he also sire an avatar child with her?

It’s a small world.

In any event, Salinas demanded that Emiliano’s company, Technologies Related to Energy and Specialized Services (TRESE), receive millions from taxpayers for the government’s cancellation of his maritime platform. It was canceled because Emiliano allegedly failed to fulfill contractual obligations, particularly safety; his critics said he put workers’ lives in danger of death.

His father nevertheless wanted Emiliano to be paid.

González Anaya told Lozoya to “…be careful with his friend Carlos Salinas de Gortrari, since those who do not help their children and partners, he considered them traitors.”

It went without saying that traitors are executed.

The accusation of bribes and threats against Salinas is not likely to be any threat to him.  The former president’s reputed role in running the drug cartels [some say he is the boss of bosses] is so frightening that law enforcement officials in Mexico are not likely to dare to arrest him.

If they did try, Salinas would likely consider them traitors, even including the Mexican President, Lopez Obrador.

Carlos Salinas has had a high turnover in friends. One day he meets a guy and then he never sees him again.

It was the ancient Roman poet, Lucius Accius, who wrote, “Let them hate, so long as they fear.”

Perhaps no one in Mexican history ever lived that concept so perfectly well as Carlos Salinas.

“He does all my thinking for me” – Emiliano Salinas [r] with his glorious Vanguard, Keith Alan Raniere.

I think there are too many things we don’t know about Mexican corruption that makes this story questionable at best. LOL

Carlos senior is a nice man.

No fan of the Salinas clan, but your article is wrong. Emilo Lozoya never mentioned Emiliano, the person he mentions is his little brother, Juan Cristobal.

Thanks, Frank. I think you explained things very clearly and connected the dots well. I had not understood how they were connected. No other newspaper connected them so well. Nice work.

I find it interesting that in Mexico, Emiliano Salinas is mentioned more than Laura Junco. Maybe Laura Junco has more power?

Bribery in Mexican politics?
Carlos Salinas involved in corruption?
I don’t believe it!

As long as NXIVM has support in Mexico’s elite, this criminal cult will survive.
