The clone of Noroña and the setback to the “hard” of Morena in the Senate

Francisco Garfias.

President López Obrador has already infected his federal deputies with the fever of insult. The morenista Manuel Alejandro Rojas wanted to do the funny Yesterday. a bust Not even in the circus would they give him a job.

The attempt to clone Gerardo Fernández Noroña failed. Rojas took the podium, but not to defend the 2023 Expenditure Budget that the Executive sent to Congress.

He did it to revile the demonstrators who will march on Sunday in defense of the INE, and to offend former President Calderón, his parents, and Lorenzo Córdova, who has become the favorite villain of the National Palace.

“Mr. Calderón, why didn’t you use a condom! Mrs. Hinojosa, why did you give birth to that thing! They were the slogans that, according to Noroña’s clone, the demonstrators shouted in 2006, after the electoral “fraud”. Those are slogans and “not that antics of ‘six, seven and eight, Lorenzo is a biscuit’” or “Oh, the INE is not touched!”.

That is the tone that prevails in the discussion of the more than 2,000 reservations that the deputies made to the 2023 Budget.

In their speeches, banners, slogans, the opposition deputies unanimously complained that the resources for the states are not enough.

The PRI José Francisco Yunes Zorilla, a member of the Budget and Public Account Commission, told us that what hurts the most about the PEF 2023 is that it ceased to be an instrument to generate investment and development. “It has a strictly healthcare vocation,” he asserted.

He contrasted figures to support his words: They give 330 billion pesos to the program for the Elderly. The budget for all of Veracruz is 140 billion pesos; and 30 billion pesos for Tlaxcala.

Salomón Chertorivsky, MC, described the Budget as “shameful”. He placed special emphasis on an issue that he took charge of as secretary of state: health.

He says that although they increased 5 percent compared to last year, inflation (8.4 percent) ate that increase.

“There is no budget to buy the ambivalent vaccine; three out of 10 children under one year of age do not have the complete vaccination schedule”, she illustrated.

In the Senate, Morena’s “hard” team was beaten by the moderates, with the support of the opposition: 87 of 127 senators gave the governor of Campeche a red card and showed solidarity with Ricardo Monreal.

They signed a letter condemning the attacks, the disqualifications, the insults, the diatribes, and the illegal acts of Layda Sansores against the head of Morena’s bench.

Among other things, the letter says:

“We repudiate both the methods and the sayings of Governor Layda Sansores against Senator Ricardo Monreal. It seems unacceptable that he intervenes, alters private communications and, from power, makes use of them to revile citizens…”

Naming the 90 brave people –38 from Morena– who supported Monreal would take up a lot of space. Better we will give the list of THE 20 morenistas who did not sign:

José Antonio Álvarez Lima, Arturo Bours, Imelda Castro, César Cravioto, Mónica Fernández, Napoleón Gómez Urrutia, Daniel Gutiérrez, Gabriel García, Gilberto Herrera, Ifigenia Martínez.

But also Higinio Martínez, Arturo Moo, José Narro, Ovidio Peralta, Ernesto Pérez Astorga, Ana Lilia Rivera, Gloria Sánchez, Citlalli Hernández, Héctor Vasconcelos and Antares Vázquez.

Monreal thanked the senators for their support in the face of illegal conduct. He emphasized: “Reconciliation is indispensable.”

The Zacatecan uploaded a message to the networks that they must have seen and heard very carefully in the Palace:

“I have always dreamed, struggled, fought for an independent Legislative Power. It is convenient for the country to have a real counterweight, a balance of powers, their independence. It helps to build better societies, that respect rights and freedoms, and that do not comment on excesses…”

Nor ordered to do.

On Wednesday night, Elena Chávez’s highly commented –and sold– book “El Rey del Cash” was presented at the María Teresa Montoya Theater, located in the Benito Juárez mayor’s office.

The author was accompanied by Anabel Hernández, a controversial journalist who wrote the prologue to the book that, I quote, describes “the hidden looting of the president and his close team.”

Forty days after the book began to circulate, Random House finally found a place to present it. Three times they said yes and three times they canceled without further explanation. “Irrational censorship,” commented the publisher. Until the mayor’s office headed by the PAN, Santiago Taboada, rented the theater for 780 pesos.

Elena said in the presentation:

“In forty days and forty nights “The King of Cash” toured the country demystifying the man who lives in a Palace, overflowing with luxury, but lacking in moral, mystical or supernatural properties that he placed himself to create a tricky and manipulative character …”

It was a long intervention, interrupted by applause that forced her to take breaks filled with cries of support from 400 people who packed the place.

And why do I keep telling you? Better buy the book.

FINISH.
