Bellas Artes and the fallen apostle of The Light of the World Church

Thank God the National Fine Arts and Literature Institute (INBAL) didn't allow a homage to Naasón Joaquín García, the world leader of The Light of the World Church and “Apostle” of Christ because today everyone would question the Institute for allowing an event to pay homage to him at the Palace of Fine Arts, since he was accused of child abuse, producing child pornography, and human trafficking by U.S. authorities. Although the event was announced as a homage, it looked like a homage and took place as a homage, the INBAL insists it wasn't a homage for the alleged child abuser because it would carry out serious consequences for Lucina Jiménez López, the head of the institute.

Could Santiago Nieto run for Governor?

You're wrong if you think Santiago Nieto Castillo, the head of the Financial Intelligence Unit from the Finance Ministry, is only investigating bank accounts and financial movements, no, he's also interested in politics. We've been told that Santiago has said he's not interested in being the Morena candidate for the 2021 election in Querétaro, nevertheless, he has been visiting the state constantly and has been mentioning investigations that involve the state and certain local politicians. In fact, he has mentioned some doubts in regards to the investigation of Ricardo Anaya's assets, carried out by the now extinct PGR.

What are the intentions of Ernesto Rubio del Cueto?

Ernesto Rubio del Cueto, the former president of the Concamin, the Confederation of the Industrial Chambers, was seen at the Health Ministry offices to try and convince Doctor Jorge Alcocer about an alleged crisis at the IMSS, led by Zoé Robledo. We've been told that people don't understand why is Rubio sharing numbers from a dubious study now, while he has been a counselor at the IMSS Foundation and Afore Siglo XXI in the last years and approved and celebrated all the decisions made at the institute. Does he want to be part of the IMSS' Technical Council?

The PRI celebrates its “triumph”

Something that has affected the two main opposition parties is the lack of self-criticism. While the PAN president, Marko Cortés, declares the party as the winner of Sunday's elections, the national PRI leader, Claudia Ruiz Massieu, claimed she was satisfied with the results because at least the PRI didn't lose its registry in Baja California. This winning mentality was backed by other PRI leaders, who claimed that the PRI is here to stay and they also comforted themselves by saying that the PAN members should be hurt because after governing Baja California for 30 years, they lost it to Morena.
