Mexican Influence Operations for Hillary Part of Larger Hostilities against U.S.

Mexico openly conducted influence operations against Donald Trump and in support of Hillary Clinton for president during the 2016 campaign. Furthermore, these influence operations are part of an ongoing campaign by Mexico to conquer at least portions of the U.S. with an illegal alien invasion force. And while the intelligence documenting this is strong, no leader cares enough about it to force investigations and prosecutions, or to develop a strategy to defeat this national security threat.

Three U.S. intelligence organizations concluded that Russia conducted cyberattacks and influence operations in support of Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election. The report also includes a lot of other important information.

For instance, Annex A of the report reveals that Russia supported the Democratic-backed Occupy Wall Street during the 2012 presidential campaign. Other information in the report reveals that Russia has a working relationship with WikiLeaks, an organization that many mainstream media outlets have worked with and legitimized in their effort to demonize U.S. troops and undermine U.S war efforts in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Regardless, politicians and media have focused solely on Russian influence operations. They claim that the IO are one of the gravest threats to the nation. And this focus on Russian influence operations makes the universal ignoring of Mexican influence operations against Donald Trump and for Hillary Clinton during the election cycle all the more glaring.

Mexican influence operations against Donald Trump started as soon as he announced his candidacy for president. UPI ran the headline, “Mexico, Latin America condemn Donald Trump’s labeling of Mexicans as criminals,” on June 18, 2015. The Guardian went with, “Mexico condemns Donald Trump’s ‘racist’ and ‘absurd’ immigration plan,” on Aug. 19, 2015. And The Washington Times reported on Aug. 21, 2015 that, “Mexico condemns attack on immigrant attributed to Trump rhetoric.”

The influence operations became more intense in 2016. And it’s interesting to look at a Sep. 7, 2015 article from The Atlantic to gain an idea of why that might have happened. The article was entitled, “How Should Mexico Respond to Donald Trump?” and it cited one person who argued that Mexico should conduct stronger influence operations against Trump.

In a column for the Mexican paper El Universal—titled “Who Defends Mexicans?” and published shortly before Pena Nieto commented on Trump—Leon Krauze, a Mexican journalist and anchor for Univision in Los Angeles, criticized this very ambivalence in Mexican officialdom. Krauze lamented the “absolute lack of figures, in the political sphere, who are taking responsibility for defending with hard data the virtuoso role of immigrants in the United States,” and argued that “the Mexican government has maintained an unjustifiable distance” from the debate over Trump’s immigration policies. He continued: 
“Someone sold [Mexican officials] the idea that they should not get involved in U.S. politics because it is a matter of internal politics and risks hurting feelings (as if Trump or other racist Republicans give a damn about our feelings … anyway). Moreover, the Mexican government should know that in U.S. history there are admirable antecedents of countries that have publicly defended their immigrants in the United States. Italy did it in the late 19th century.”

It’s likely impossible to tell what effect (if any) Krauze had on the Mexican government. But it is noteworthy because of how Mexico became more aggressive with its influence operations once 2016 arrived.

Former Mexican President Vicente Fox became the face of the Mexican anti-Trump and pro-Hillary influence operations in 2016. His interference became prominent following an interview he gave with Jorge Ramos on Fusion in which he said that Mexico would not pay “for that f***ng wall” that Trump regularly referenced in his campaigning. The interview with the actual vulgarity is in the below video.

Fox, a former leader of a hostile nation, was a fixture in the presidential campaign from that point onward.

U.S. News & World Report reported in February 2016 that “Mexicans are backing former President Vicente Fox in his verbal spat with Donald Trump.” CBS News reported on March 2, 2016 that Fox “stands behind comparing Trump to Hitler.” On April 8, 2016, The Daily Mail reported that Fox went “on Twitter tirade against ‘false prophet’ and ‘looser’ [sic] Trump.” The Daily Beast reported on Aug. 31, 2016 that Fox said Trump wasn’t welcome in Mexico. And Politico reported on Sep. 2, 2016 that Fox said “Trump ‘would have to be born again’ to fix Hispanic relationship.”

Fox partially conducted Mexican influence operations outside the United States. But he also conducted them inside the U.S., which is even more disturbing. The below video is of him—a foreign agent—conducting one of his anti-Trump influence operations in Miami at the radio studios of WLRN.

And there is no question that Fox was conducting influence operations designed to interfere with the U.S. election. He admitted it in a June 2016 interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

Foreign leaders don’t often weigh in on foreign elections, but you have spoke a lot about Trump. Why? 
The presidency of the United States is big, maybe the presidency of the world, because of the leadership this nation has, so when the United States elects a president, we — the rest of the world — are very attentive. In this case we are highly worried because of the wrong and ignorant proposals that Trump has introduced. It’s not that we want to be there getting involved, it’s that it will affect us so much, and we must be prepared for what happens.

The Mexican government directly continued its participation in the influence operations during 2016 as well. For instance, CNN reported on March 8, 2016 that President Enrique Peña Nieto said that Trump was “damaging US-Mexico relations.” And Reuters reported on Aug. 31, 2016 that Mexican politicians condemned Trump’s late summer visit with Peña Nieto.

Mexican influence operations against Trump didn’t stop after Election Day.

RealClearPolitics reported on Nov. 16, 2016 that Fox deemed Trump an “illegitimate president.” And on Nov. 29, 2016, The Huffington Post reported that Fox was comparing Trump to Fidel Castro.

On Jan. 6 The Hill reported that Fox again repeated his vulgar declaration that Mexico “won’t pay for ‘that f------ wall.’” And on the same day, Breitbart reported that Fox again talked about Trump being an illegitimate president.

The ongoing Mexican influence operations against Trump and the United States election process is a national security threat by itself. But it gets even worse. These Mexican influence operations are part of a larger campaign by the Mexican government to exert influence and control over the sovereignty of the United States of America.

The Daily Caller reported on March 23, 2014 that Mexico watched how Russia took over portions of Ukraine, and how it started applying lessons learned from that action to its own long-term strategy to conquer portions of the U.S.

On Friday, in Geneva, Mexico signaled alarm at the treatment of its large Mexican minority in the United States, comparing American actions to prevent the use of Spanish to attempts in Ukraine and Estonia to prevent the use of Russian. . . . 
The Mexican diplomat then forthrightly compared the treatment of Mexicans in the United States to the treatment of Russian speakers in Ukraine. 
Mexico, the diplomat said, has the right to protect Spanish speakers who have migrated without documentation to the United States in search of economic opportunity. He further noted that, unlike in Ukraine, these migrants very often remain full Mexican citizens.

That long-term strategy to conquer portions of the United States isn’t a theoretical one. It’s already happening. And the conquering of America has multiple components. Three such components are: stealing American elections with illegal alien voting, supporting efforts to put illegal aliens into positions of power over law-abiding Americans, and wiping out American citizens through population displacement and replacement.

Mexico is not always directly involved in these components. Nor are Mexican illegal aliens in the U.S. always involved in these components. But they do not have to be. This is a long-term strategy. Mexico doesn’t have to direct the stealing of elections, or the putting of illegal aliens into power over Americans, or the effort to wipe out American citizens. It merely has to back (covertly or overtly) those persons in the U.S. who are already doing such things (some who do so for reasons that have nothing to do with Mexico). Furthermore, because of its proximity to the United States, a large portion of any illegal alien activity in the U.S. will always be Mexican. Thus, these three components are part of Mexican strategy against the U.S. even if the Mexicans aren’t directing them.

Here now are some examples of these components.

On Oct. 24, 2014, The Washington Post published an article called, “Could non-citizens decide the November election?” It then detailed how illegal aliens very well could have won elections for Democrats (the preferred party of Mexico) in the past.

Because non-citizens tended to favor Democrats (Obama won more than 80 percent of the votes of non-citizens in the 2008 CCES sample), we find that this participation was large enough to plausibly account for Democratic victories in a few close elections. Non-citizen votes could have given Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health-care reform and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) won election in 2008 with a victory margin of 312 votes. Votes cast by just 0.65 percent of Minnesota non-citizens could account for this margin. It is also possible that non-citizen votes were responsible for Obama’s 2008 victory in North Carolina. Obama won the state by 14,177 votes, so a turnout by 5.1 percent of North Carolina’s adult non-citizens would have provided this victory margin.

And in 2015, Politico published, “Illegal Immigrants Could Elect Hillary – How noncitizens decrease Republican chances of winning the White House next year.” This article provided another example of how illegal alien voting helps the American political party that Mexico prefers.

. . . Thus the census counts illegal immigrants and other noncitizens equally with citizens. Since the census is used to determine the number of House seats apportioned to each state, those states with large populations of illegal immigrants and other noncitizens gain extra seats in the House at the expense of states with fewer such “whole number of persons.”

But again, it gets worse. Americans are putting Mexicans (and other nationalities) into positions of power in America over American citizens.

The Associated Press reported on Nov. 9, 2014 that California put an illegal alien into power over American lives.

Sergio Garcia is a civil litigation lawyer in California who represents clients in car accidents. 
He doesn’t practice immigration law, which Garcia says surprises many people because of his high-profile battle to become the first known immigrant in the country without legal permission to become a licensed attorney. 
“No way, man,” Garcia said. “Not after what I’ve been through.” 
Garcia, 37, a native of Mexico, won his license after a bruising five-year legal and political battle that included a ruling in January from the California Supreme Court. It came after Gov. Jerry Brown signed a specially crafted bill passed by the Legislature to let Garcia practice law.

And on Nov. 16, 2014, Breitbart reported that, “NYC Mayor De Blasio ‘Willing to Continue the Conversation’ on Granting Non-Citizens Voting Rights.”

Florida joined California in putting illegal aliens into power over its citizens. Reuters reported on Nov. 20, 2014 that an, “‘Unauthorized’ immigrant from Mexico to be sworn in as lawyer in Florida.” New York did the same thing in 2015 when it made Cesar Vargas (an illegal alien from Mexico) a lawyer. Vargas later expressed interest in becoming president of the United States. This is particularly noteworthy because of the role this illegal alien played in the 2016 presidential election for the Democratic Party.

The Mexican strategy to conquer portions of the U.S. also includes displacing and replacing the legal Americans living in the U.S. Demographic changes to the U.S. show Mexico is succeeding with its strategy.

Pew Research Center regularly publishes data showing that immigration (legal and illegal) is changing American demographics. These data show that the importation of foreigners into the U.S. are at record levels.

Nor is Mexico shy about its intentions to conquer the U.S. The candid comments The Daily Caller reported from the Mexican diplomat in its March 23, 2014 article were not an anomaly.

A Nov. 21, 2014 article by The Associated Press noted that, “Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto praised President Barack Obama on Friday for his executive orders granting new rights to millions of people living illegally in the United States, calling it ‘an act of justice.’”

Peña Nieto’s praise for Obama’s action followed his [Peña Nieto’s] earlier influence operation in America during which he demanded “immigration reform” in the U.S.

An Aug. 25, 2014 article from The Los Angeles Times provides details on how sinister this influence operation was.

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto kicked off a two-day tour of California with a speech to Mexican immigrants in Los Angeles on Monday in which he pledged to make life better for his countrymen living on both sides of the border. 
Pledging reduced wait times at border crossings and faster services at Mexican consulates across the United States, Nieto said he had an obligation to serve all Mexicans, regardless of where they lived. 
“This is the other Mexico,” he said of the United States, which is home to an estimated 11 million Mexican immigrants.

Mexico conducted intense influence operations against Donald Trump and for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election cycle. And it did so in the open. Furthermore, these influence operations are part of larger Mexican hostilities against the United States of America.

Yet our leaders have remained silent about this even as they are hysterical about the Russian influence operation against the U.S. presidential election that is mild by comparison. The incoming Trump administration has a chance to change this lack of concern with the Mexican threat. It should order investigations into which people in the U.S. are supporting Mexico (with subsequent prosecutions where applicable), and develop a national strategy to fight back against the Mexican-led illegal alien invasion of America.

Failure to confront and defeat this national security threat will result in America losing a portion (or more) of the territory that currently resides within its borders.
