Why All Americans Should Root for Mexico in the World Cup

Mexico USA Soccer

Rooting for our Fellow North Americans and Neighbor is Good Form and Good Business

It’s Time to Reach Out and Touch our Largest Neighbor and 2nd Largest Trading Partner in the World

Today in the knockout round of the World Cup, the comeback kids from Team USA lost to a swifter Ghana squad that turned on the speed at the right moments to score a 2 to 1 victory.   While the loss was painful, the success of Team USA and its ability to mesmerize our country and impress the world was remarkable.  This 2010 run was a really big deal. 

More importantly for the USA, our former President Bill Clinton was there sharing with our global community and showing our fellow man that the USA is a team of class. 

Win lose or draw, Team USA and its captain, Landon Donovan, demonstrated an amazing amount of class that was truly inspiring to millions of Americans looking for heroes in a world where we really need some. More, they showed the world that the USA is part of the global community and that we are embracing our place among our fellow man.

On the other side, Ghana is now the shining light of Africa.  The whole continent is behind their fellow African heroes.  Its’ truly great to see a struggling continent get a place under the sun on the world stage.  And while so many of us are disappointed today as our beloved Team USA was defeated on the pitch, in sport as in economic competition, once must admire the victors for their competitive spirit and amazing accomplishment. 

Which brings me to Mexico…..

Mexico is now the only team in our beloved North America left in the tournament. Over the last decade or so, Mexico, the country and it’s peoples have been beaten up by many in the US Media for being a weak burden on the USA.  We hear the grumblings about drug wars, immigration, and brown peoples who don’t share our values.

When Mexico has problems in a few of its border towns with drug cartels who are killing one another to supply our addicted culture with drugs, we issue travel warnings to the whole country.  It’s crazy.

Can you imagine if Mexico or any other country issued a travel warning to the whole USA just because some serial killer rapist in New York City was on the loose.  That would be irresponsible, yet we listen to our mainstream media on a ratings drug as if what they say is gold.

What is sad is that Mexicans are used to the nonsensical travel warnings that are ominously issued to “watch out” as they travel to Mexico.  It is causing massive economic harm but worse, it’s causing social harm between neighbors.  It’s wrong.

The power of the mainstream US Media has been so bad that U.S. Citizens are actually frightened of Mexico.  What’s even more weird is that even Mexican Americans are afraid to travel to Mexico.  Yeah, its’ bizarre! 

All this as Mexico, which is infinitely more safe and less violent than the USA, forges ahead in the global competition with an important growing middle class, a stronger peso versus the dollar over the last 10 years, availible and responsible credit for consumers from banks owned by International players including but not limited to Citibank, HSBC from Hong Kong, Nova Scotia Bank in Canada, Santander of Spain with an amazing amount of new democracy being forged by many establish and new political parties in the country. 

In fact, one can argue that the change Mexico has experienced over the last 10 years blows away what we in the USA have experienced.

So you’d think we Americans, as people, would be all over it.  But we’re not. We are too frightened by that speck in our eye.  And while we continue to look in the mirror admiring ourselves, Mexico is moving rapidly forward without the U.S. people taking notice.  It’s very strange.

What’s even more odd is that Mexico is probably more like the USA than any other country in the world; probably even more so than Canada.

Upon travel to Mexico, one cannot help but notice a Wal-Mart on every corner mixed with a Costco, Home Depot, Applebees, Ford, Chevy, and GM dealers not to mention McDonalds, Burger King, Subway, Carls Jr, KFC, and so much more.  Does this sound like a 3rd world country to you?  I mean, the USA corporations get it.  They’ve invaded Mexico and took it over!  Capitalism is thriving.  But the U.S. population is strangely unaware.

In fact, the majority of the U.S. population believe Mexico is living in the dark ages.  It is precisely this kind of ignorance and lack of awareness that produces failure.  Can we really afford to keep admiring our past accomplishments without noticing the other guy’s rise to prominence?

What’s even more telling on how close Mexicans are to the U.S. in that Mexicans follow more USA sports than any country in the world.  From MLB baseball, NBA Basketball, to NFL football, Mexicans are huge fans of our sports.    

In fact, I bet most readers here don’t even know that the # 2 attended NFL game is history was in held in 2005 in Mexico City.  That’s right!  Mexico!  At the time, the lowly last place San Francisco 49ers and the last place Arizona Cardinals played a regular season game at Aztec Stadium.  I can’t imagine how many would have shown up if that game actually was between two contenders.  It could have been 150,000 people! Wow!  What a huge market opportunity!  I am still wondering why no U.S. professional sports league  has put a team in a city with more than 25 million people!  Yet they have teams in Calgary and want to put a team in London which is far across an  ocean in a way off time zone!  Very strange!NFL in Mexico


The Dallas Cowboys home opener in 2009 against the New York Giants drew 105,121 fans which is the largest regular season crowd in National Football League history. The game marked the first regular season game played at the brand new $1.15 billion Cowboys Stadium. ( Game Center: NYG 33, DAL 31)

Previously, the largest crowd for a regular season game occurred on Oct. 2, 2005 when the San Francisco 49ers played the Arizona Cardinals at Azteca Stadium in Mexico City. That game drew 103,467 fans who witnessed the first-ever regular season game played outside the United States.

The point is that we North Americans should embrace our fellow North Americans. It’s good business and good form. 

Mexico is NOT a bunch of smugglers and drug dealers like some with a political agenda try to portray.  No, it’s massive diverse country with over 110 million people; that’s about 3 times the size of the Canadian population. It’s a growing extremely close neighbor of ours both in proximity and culture and we need to embrace those ties that bind. 

Creating exaggerated news about her breeds contempt and irresponsible and extremely foolish.  In fact, contempt only reflects poorly on our ability to win friends and influence peoples.  It renders us impotent and that’s not in our best interest.  Furthermore, it’s morally wrong.

Now that’s not to say that Mexico does NOT have it’s own challenges, it does! But Mexico is growing up and we need to pay attention. It’s not the romanticized Sombrero and Donkey culture fed by some outdated stereotype.  In fact, it’s extremely hard to find a Sombrero wearing Mexican and even see a working donkey.  That was the 20th century not this New World Order!

And while Mexico does NOT face many of the self-inflicted wounds that we have committed against ourselves over the last decade, Mexico does have its own set of challenges ie… a new democracy filled with a very young population that is need of more globally competitive employment.  Also, Mexicans face a drug cartel that is illegally and violently working to fill the U.S. demand for its’ products causing massive harm to it’s family dominant culture.

What is weird is that this is major challenge that requires massive cooperation between both the supply and demand side of the equation.  Yet, our pathetic mainstream media keeps lobbing scuds at Mexicans as if they are the one’s who are consuming them!  It is completely out of balance and irresponsible.  This challenge belongs to both of us.  Period!

So as you sob for our Team USA and it’s loss against that wily Ghana squad, do what Africans are doing for Ghana.  Stand up and support our neighbor.  Let’s root for Mexico and her success.  And when Mexico competes against the highly favored Argentina, let’s be proud that a fellow North American is on the pitch working hard, competing, and doing their best to bring the same hopes, dreams, and aspirations that we our beloved Team USA brought us today!

    Leaving all the political and cultural stuff aside. The primary reason to support them would be that apart from Brazil the Mexican team has played some of the best football I have seen so far in the world cup especially when they beat the French team. Mexico are a very good and skilful side and a joy to watch. The only reason I hope they don’t beat Argentina though is so that we can play them after the Germans and beat them as well.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
