As Predicted, Trump’s harsh Rhetoric Reignites Mexican-American Embrace
By Daily Bell Staff - May 14, 2016

Mexico fights back against ‘The Clown’ …  Mexican officials are pursuing a counteroffensive to Trump’s incendiary rhetoric, reaching out to U.S. business leaders, looking at ways to better use social media, and even encouraging qualified Mexicans to get U.S. citizenship. –Politico

A few months ago we wrote an article entitled Trump and ’60s Propaganda: Strategy to Launch North American Union?

Here’s an excerpt:

Analyzing the current political scene, a strange trend has become evident to us. Here we’re seeing Donald Trump involved in a broad-based, elite propaganda campaign using violent change-making tools from the 1960s. The goal? To help build what is known as North American Union.

And we added,

Perhaps Trump doesn’t know what’s going on. Perhaps he’s unaware. Or perhaps he’s a willing part of it.

At the time, Trump was making headlines because of his intention to build a wall between Mexico and the US. We explained, however, that  his very fierceness was building opposition to what he supposedly intended.

The idea of merging Mexico, America and Canada into one large region sharing political and regulatory oversight subsided a few years ago because of determined and angry opposition in the US.

Highways between Canada and Mexico intended to bisect the US and further ruin the national economy are still being built. But their construction is surreptitious and indirect.

But Trump has set the debate in motion again. It has been reignited just as we feared.

Once Trump had made his point, it was only natural that Hispanics and the Mexican government would take counter-measures.

Here are some questions we have.

What if Obama’s illustrated contempt for immigration laws is part of a larger strategic program?

What if his egregious actions were intended to allow Trump to make a name for himself by opposing them?

In Trump’s very first speech he made insulting remarks about Mexican illegal immigrants. These comments were heard round the world. What if they, too, were part of a larger plan of action?

Almost immediately, George Soros announced he was placing some of his billions behind the formation of a pan-Hispanic and pan-minority protest effort. It happened awfully quickly. What if it were pre-planned?

It was always said that Mexicans would never wish to ally themselves with the US. But what if that alliance were suddenly seen as a matter of national pride? What if that alliance ironically became a statement of national dignity?

Is Trump somehow complicit?

Throughout the years, such individuals as the Clintons and George Soros were friends or business partners of Donald Trump. And Trump is a manipulative man and has said he enjoys telling people what they want to hear. It is certainly possible he is “playing a part.”

Here’s more from the Politico article:

[In an interview] José Paulo Carreño King, Mexico’s new undersecretary for North America … said the decision that Mexico needs to boost its image came after the country, which was being pummeled by Trump but trying to stay restrained, commissioned a series of polls and focus groups in the U.S. late last year.

… The Mexican embassy in Washington on Thursday issued a sharp statement announcing that Carlos Sada Solana had assumed his role as the country’s new ambassador to the United States and that his “clear and precise” mandate is to defend the interests of Mexico and Mexicans.

In what appeared to be a swipe at the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, the statement went on to say that the new envoy “recognized the need to reposition the image of Mexico in the United States in its just and rightful place.”

In other words, Trump’s rhetoric has created a significant backlash.

The article tells us much more.

  • Carreño outlined “a multi-layered initiative to burnish Mexico’s image.” This involves traditional and social media, cultural outreach and closer ties to business and civil facilities.
  • Mexico seems to have gone on a kind of political “high alert.” Carreño got his job only a week ago and “half of the consuls general at Mexico’s 50 U.S. consulates” were changed around or let go. Carreño’s speciality is communications and his mandate is to build a positive educational campaign.
  • Mexican officials are setting up channels of communication with U.S. leaders, “grassroots activists and trade organizations.” The idea is to emphasize the close ties between the US and its third-largest trading partner.
  • Advocacy groups are promoting permanent residency in the United States for Mexicans. The idea is to create an upsurge in Mexicans who have U.S. citizenship and can vote.

The article also makes reference to the 1990s, “when U.S., Canadian and Mexican leaders were promoting the North American Free Trade Agreement.” Similar activism occurred then to “sell the deal.”

So our analysis is no longer hypothetical.

Politico not only mentions the return of tactics involved with the initial, failed promotion of the North American Union, the article makes it clear that those tactics are resurfacing.

Trump’s brutal rhetoric involving Mexican immigration has resulted in a Soros-led national activism on behalf of Hispanics in the US.

And now Mexico has thrown its weight behind outreach and citizenship efforts in the US.

One reason many in the Republic Party are withholding endorsement from Trump is no doubt to join with Mexico in the current outreach.

The goal is an ever-closer US-Mexican embrace.

We’re not necessarily anti-Trump. We’ve even compared parts of his program to Thomas Jefferson, HERE. And discussed his admirable anti-war tendencies HERE.

But Trump remains a mystery – which resulted in this initial article of ours HERE.

Now he is supposedly being attacked by the Washington Post. We’ll see if the results match the rhetoric, or if it is merely a ploy designed to make people believe, once more, that the establishment is against him.

Conclusion: The renewed Mexican-American embrace will be both positive and negative depending on your perspective and how you wish to exploit what is now evolving. But it is not in our view at all accidental. It is likely directed history.
