AZ Republic whitewashes fed’s Mexico travel warnings

The Arizona Republic newspaper, worried that the U.S. State Department’s travel warnings and bans regarding travel to Mexico will negatively impact its favored nation, especially as spring break approaches, counters with a statement from the Mexico Tourism Board.

The Board issued a blasé understatement acknowledging the U.S.’s right to warn travelers, though calling the State Department warning “counterproductive” saying “Playa del Carmen (Cozumel) is safe for travelers“— other than a recent ferry explosion, injuring 25 people.


Days ago, Mexican law enforcement officers located undetonated explosive devices on another tourist ferry.

“Messages like this, which imply safety issues without any basis in fact, are counterproductive to the goal of informing and educating travelers to Mexico and we strongly disagree with both this approach and the contents of this security message,” the Mexico Tourism Board announced. “Playa del Carmen is the largest destination in the Riviera Maya, and is surrounded by beautiful caves and pristine cenotes, eco parks like Xcaret, wonderful resorts, beach clubs, boutique hotels, and trendy shops with international brands.”

The statement published in the online version of the newspaper, is followed by a photo tour of “Beautiful Mexico.” 

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. is more forthright, reporting that tourists to all-inclusive resorts in Mexico suspect they were given tainted alcohol. The State Department has issued similar warnings.

If you still have travel concerns, this quote from Eric Olson who is employed promoting Mexicanmigration and migrants,“ acknowledging “it’s a little bit hot now,” should put your mind at ease:

“It’s also important to underscore that none of the statements from the State Department suggested that people from the U.S. are being targeted specifically, like they may be in Afghanistan or Iraq.” 

How many Americans would find the favorable comparisons to global war zones comforting enough to allow their kids to make Mexico a spring break destination or plan a getaway for themselves?

    Wouldn’t it be a morale boosting experience for victims of the illegal alien invasion to be told that the McCain,Kyl, Flake and Shadegg families were taking an unescorted vacation in Mexico?

    This so clearly illustrates the bizarre pro-illegal alien position of the Arizona Repukelic newspaper. Even paying for the online version is supporting this garbage laden travesty masquerading as a legitimate purveyor of news. My message to those of you who still subscribe to this vile arm of the radical left, save your money, your blood pressure and your sanity!

    I personally know not a single person who subscribes to this BS newspaper. It died long ago and didn’t know enough to lay down. It functions by the skin of its teeth without any seasoned journalists on staff, crazed columnists and obviously lacking editors. I see it at my weekend breakfast cafe that has sections of a couple of free issues floating around. Most of them are untouched atop a table.

    Here is a story from January, 2016 regarding a list of the
    50 Most Dangerous Cities in the World (cities with populations of at least 300,000)
    prepared by
    Mexico’s Citizen Council for Public Safety and Criminal Justice

    Note that St. Louis and Baltimore are the cities featured among the list of $hithole cities.

    If you own shares of Facebook, pay attention.
    The guy known as Mark Zuckerburg and his elitist friends have been selling tens of thousands of shares daily to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars. [who is this mark zuckerburg, really?]


    Also, is suggesting that March, 2018 would be a good time to divest of Twitter (right after the insiders pull their $$$ out)

    Why wait? Trump’s gonna bring the hammer down and they know it.

    Is it going to Rain?
    Is it going to Snow(den)
