The lawsuits try to make it look like minorities are victims.Others like Michelle Lujan-Grisham, along with Attorney General Hector Balderas, have both shown a narrow minority bias in New Mexico which does not serve the greater American public in that state or the country as a whole. New Mexico has become the bottom-of-the-barrel place for minority money grabs through lawsuits. It is one minority-based Lawsuit after another by Navajos, Hispanics or other minorities in New Mexico. [Minorities continue to pile it on across the nation, New Mexico among those hit the hardest-it’s one high ticket, big bucks lawsuit after another - they are collectively making billions]. Continue watching for phony lawsuits rigged by groups claiming rights on racial lines. It is often more of an industry filled with collaborators. NEW MEXICO OR NAVAJO NATION, US - LAWSUITSThis will likely get its own section shortly; the tribal, other non-white lawsuits and scholarship bundles as a preferential player/racket motifNote: several of the resources in this section are from “faith” based websites, usually of the conservative Christian sort. Although there are likely biases with mis/disinformation, take into consideration what they are saying, then do facts checking separately. What we need to understand is that just because something is “far right” or coming from a strong religious orientation, it still can have authentic, useful and verifiable information. In addition, some of these groups might be the only ones accurately reporting the scoop on Islamic extremists and other groups in the USA.Although on the surface it might seem Balderas is doing good, we need to apprise how he is going about it. In the utilities merger ethics case, there are red flags he tends to use cronyism to get what he wants and for at least his cronies to benefit financially, if not also himself. Since this is so far one of the publicly displayed signs of corruption, we can ask if this sort of thing ahas been going on all along.My feeling is and has been the man is treacherous and a power player. I suspect quite a bit has been hidden under the carpet about him. I have had warning bells go up about him for a long time now. I feel he and his cronies are causing New Mexico a sesrious problem and that there has been lots of foul activities we don’t know about that go beyond most people’s expectations. This could include hyper-surveillance and stalking using various police-related and other cronies, even across state lines. I feel Balderas is trying to act like King of New Mexico, a modern day version of the Spanish Inquisition involving Queen Isabella. This Catholic-regalistic Hispanic aspect has been commented on before. Please note Balderas had a father from Mexico and was raised by a single mother ni the Wagon Mount area of New Mexico. We can ask if those Mexico ties have anything to do with his behavior.Questions to ask about Balderas:Kickbacks? Is he making something on the side, even when the lawsuits seem worthwhile?Is he working with other countries against the United States, like Mexico?How many complaints about him have been held from public view? Has he settled any complaints off the record?When did his corrupt behavior begin to present itselfSTUDENT LOANShttps://thecandlepublishing.com/ag-hector-balderas-files-10-2-million-settlement-on-student-loan-debt-cancellation-and-restitution-lawsuit/-Updates: PAGE STARTED--2022/06/03 Hector Balderas, NM AG some material moved from RRT-AG’s.
