At number 77 Fair Drive in Costa Mesa, city hall offices, during 1968 Washington’s idea was planted to press the surrender of the Peninsula and the Gulf of California, due to the fact that there was already noticeable progress in the claim of the rich sea on the part of Mexico.
The annexation of the peninsula should be proposed as the best solution to reduce tensions between the Mexican and North American communities since there were enough problems with the rebellion of the Black Panthers.
And this is where my clueless friends from the UABC, Tijuana campus, have totally erred in their analysis of what is already happening. The peninsula is the buffer zone and as a Washington protectorate, it is the only space of massive colonization by entire families in the United States.
First, our well-known senator Alejandra de León Gastelum, now federal deputy Salvador “Chava” Minor, representatives of the faded left of our state, affirm that they will continue to promote initiatives for the incorporation of the Gulf of California into our country.
Both have understood my thesis well and I believe they are on the right track: THE KEY IS THE GULF OF CALIFORNIA.
Today I will not elaborate on my analyzes in which I have already explained too much of the matter. I will simply refer to the origin of what today motivates the legislators of the left to continue advancing in the proto proposals of the blue and white right that were half attended and some were forgotten. All referring to the aquarium of the world.
DÍAZ ORDAZ A PATRIOT PRESIDENT
Since 1967 Gustavo Díaz Ordaz interpreted the interest of the White House in strengthening its protectorate and advancing in its immediate possession. How would this happen if Mexico has relations with Washington and wide collaboration?
However, that never stops the Yankees, since the strategic sea is inherent to their security and the hegemony they want will have to be fulfilled whether they like it or not.
At that time there were already ten years of conflicts in Korea, Vietnam, Laos, everything was getting out of control and the indirect confrontation with the interests of Russia forced them not to present any vulnerability that would put the North American continental territory at risk. The only one is the Sea of Cortez.
Discreetly but at the same time firmly, Díaz Ordaz orders the measurement of the baselines to delimit the Gulf of California according to the Convention of the Sea.
At the same time, the decree on the limits of the Gulf of California published on August 30, 1968, where the entire Upper Gulf becomes the Mexican TERRITORIAL SEA, is draining. Whaaaat? Washington claims. We will never allow that! That’s why they pressure him to correct BUT …
In order to leave no room for doubt, the US embassy in Mexico once again informs the White House that Díaz Ordaz has ratified that the Upper Gulf of California is a Mexican Territorial Sea.
Washington as a supporter of the free seas doctrine throughout the world, reminds our nation that its merchant or warships will use innocent passage.
In addition, Article 4 of the Mesilla Treaty opens an easement for them in the now dry bed of the Colorado River.
But after Díaz Ordaz advances in the Mexican sovereign proclamation in the upper Gulf of California, his government begins to decompose, did you notice? I will not quote him, but you analyze the series of events from that date that caused the defenestration and political disgrace into which the president fell, from which not even Luis Echeverría could save him.
And today, the only battlefield with the shameless intervention of environmental organizations financed by Washington, where is it? … The upper Gulf of California!
The United States does not forget, it not forgive. Ask Echeverría, Calderón, and Peña Nieto how it went …
