Until now, the National Palace has applied Sun Tzu’s maxim: it acts by anticipating the movements of its adversaries and uses them to its advantage and maintains control of the media agenda, due to the predictability of the opposition’s reactions.

The head of the STPS Luisa María Alcalde will have to ensure that the results of the election reflect the will of the majority. It will save Pemex the high cost of a trade union conflict, since the duchess is not there for taffeta, as Olga Moreno would say.
Except for the assertion of not sweating other people’s fevers, the response of the head of the Interior, Adán Augusto López, to the question of whether he was already incarcerated by the 24th is the most traditional of all… By the way, it seems like “wishful thinking” by Senator Olga Sánchez Cordero “smoothed rough edges” between the president of the INE, Lorenzo Córdova, and the current tenant of Bucareli… Sometimes the vision of the Altiplano loses the perspective of local sentiments. Time will tell the outcome of the conversation between the aspiring candidate for the governorship of Quintana Roo, Roberto Palazuelos, and former governor Mario Villanueva… INAH director Diego Prieto says that there is no official history in democracy. Can anyone imagine American children reading in their history books that some of the “founding fathers” had children with their black slaves?… Steven Paul Jobs, computer genius, left this reflection: “Sometimes life gives you hit on the head with a brick; But do not lose faith” …
