The new "Cesar Chavez" Movie is out. Chavez agreed with the Tea Party on immigration. He was against undocumented workers working in the U.S. and he was opposed to illegals crossing the border into the U.S. Of course these things are left out of his bio by the Libs.
Obama goes to Saudi Arabia to check in with his Muslim bosses.
On this week's ScreenPicks Movie Show, we review four new films. First we'll discuss the new biblical film Noah. Then we review Arnold Schwarzenegger's new movie Sabotage. That's followed Cesar Chavez and Breathe In.
On a roundtrip to San Diego this past Saturday, we drove and drove and drove from Highland to San Diego to Fontana. Along the way, we passed a large agricultural field where I glimpsed 8-10 men, dressed for working the field (large hats, long sleeves, bandannas tied around their neck) walking among the rows of soil and greenery.
During a luncheon hosted by the Chicano Latino Caucus, I heard Maria Elena Durazo speak of the man, Cesar Chavez and La Causa. She said to the brothers and sisters in the room that this discussion was not nostalgia in any way, for the call to action is as imperative now as it ever was.
I considered the men in the field, I thought of my friends in the Warehouse Workers who have fought and won lawsuits for stolen wages, unsafe conditions and more. Fans in the warehouse. Safe, drinking water available. I reflected upon my husband who has sat in a few anti-union training sessions over the past several years. And my niece, who, in less than a year, has been told that a union only wants her money. Her hard-earned minimum wage, part-time, money.
And, I wanted to remember something grand and powerful and imperative and I wanted to move and dance and start a revolution. After all, I was sitting in the only union-hotel in both San Bernardino and Riverside county. We just had a special election where Tea Party/Anti-Union Republicans turned out 2 to 1, aided in part by a split in our candidates and by the apathy of working people. It has been two decades of Central Labor Council Secretary-Treasurer Stalnaker where cohesion and electoral effectiveness have been decimated. Yes, it is time to bring some poetry and some vision.
There were few records broken this past weekend, if any at all. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. didn't set any record for hatred spawned against him, and Vasyl Lomachenko didn't set a record for winning a belt in his second pro fight. We did indeed get to see what would happen if Teddy Atlas' body were taken over by some type of sadistic alien, however. (And that said, never mix lime and coconut then drink it all down.) This week on Queensberry Rules Radio, James Foley of Bad Left Hook and Queensberry-Rules' Patrick Connor recap all of last week's action, in addition to previewing Saul "Canelo" Alvarez vs. Alfredo Angulo and accompanying undercard. Perhaps most importantly, this coming weekend signals the beginning of what should be better boxing action. Thanks for tuning in!
We're on the home stretch now, people. And that's not meant to be a, "Ahhh, finally 2013 is almost over" thing, but rather a "Let's close 2013 out with a giant kick in the pants" thing. It's doubtful that this whole Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. vs. Brian Vera situation will be the last cringe-worthy event of the year, but at least on paper we're being treated right in the last three months. This week James Foley of BadLeftHook.com and Patrick Connor of Queensberry-Rules.com return after a week off to run down recent happenings and upcoming fights, like Wladimir Klitschko vs. Alexander Povetkin, Miguel Cotto vs. Delvin Rodriguez, and much more. Thanks for tuning in!

Entrevista al creador del movimiento Ponte Pa' Lo Positivo César Seda.
Published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the founding of the United Farm Workers on September 30, 2012, FROM THE JAWS OF VICTORY: The Triumph and Tragedy of Cesar Chavez and the Farm Worker Movement by Matt Garcia is the most comprehensive history ever written on the meteoric rise and precipitous decline of the United Farm Workers, the most successful farm labor union in United States history.
Based on little-known sources and one-of-a-kind oral histories, author Matt Garcia revises much of what we know about the UFW. From the gripping account of the union’s grape boycott which became the defining feature of the movement, to the union’s expansion and ultimately it’s demise as the victim of its own success and Chavez’s growing instability, Garcia tells a tale of hope, triumph and disappointment.
Matt Garcia is Professor of Transborder Studies and History at Arizona State University, where he also directs the School of Historical, Philosophical, and Religious Studies, and the Program in Comparative Border Studies. He is the author of A World of Its Own.
