    LatinoTalk Texas 2015 0010 GOP Quarrels Over Latino Issues

    in Politics

    Today I read headlines that support my assertions that the Republican Party in Washington DC and here in Texas is at war with itself because the Republican Party deliberately acted to alienate the Latino vote and embrace the radical white supremacist Tanton Network motivated Tea Party. My assumption has been that the Republicans who try very hard during the campaign season to sound like Tea party types by touting harsh anti-immigration agendas like by the Tea party types by utterly offensive to Latinos then the Republicans, during the legislative season, try to fend off attacks on their leadership. Funny, how the GOP, knowing the Tea party types have knives aimed at their backs, continue to try and placate and pander to these racist bigots like Steve" The Bigot" King and his ilk like Pete Sessions of Alabama in the US Senate. It is both a foolish strategy by the Republicans and continues to be very offensive to Latinos in America. But I also read some news that indicates that some Republicans, like Greg Abbott of Texas, seem to have been able to recover some of those lost Latino votes. I note there are extenuating circumstances and also qualify that the gains Abbott found were only a small percentage. Finally, I read an expose' of the horrible conditions that meet young mothers and their children in the detention facilities of Immigration services of our nation under the dubious leadership of Obama. This expose' is very sad but also very important and I hope you all will read it. It is among the greatest tragedies affecting Latinos in America today.

    LatinoTalk Texas 2015, 0008 Immigration, Cuba & More Latino issues

    in Politics

    Today's show including important essays by Leslie Sanchez, Alex Gonzalez and Alex Nowrasteh. Each has in depth analysis of the immigration debate and the political motivations behind it. Alex Gonzalez effectively defeats the "Secure the Border First with a fence!" policy of the anti-immigration bigots. Then Leslie Sanchez opines about the motivation behind Obama's executive action to reduce the horrendous hardships he had already cost many millions of Latinos in America. Why would he do that? Sanchez suspects it may be because some GOP types like Greg Abbott in Texas did rather well among Latinos in heavily Latino districts. Thus, her conclusion is that Obama and the Democrats may be in trouble with Latinos. Latinos Ready To Vote. I have my doubts about that but it is true that it appears some few Republicans did fairly well among some Latino sectors, most likely because the Democrat candidate was so liberal and radical that traditionally Democrat voting Latinos simply stayed home. Later, author David Whitehead Jr. called in to discuss Hispanic outreach among Republicans and he admits the existence of anti-Latino bias among Tea party types. I discuss how the evil Tanton Network, a radical environmentalist and white supremacist organization has injected their anti-immigration policies into the Republican Party via the Tea Parties. We didn't get to discuss the changes in policy concerning Cuba.

    LatinoTalk Texas 2014, 0042 Texas & Latino Values

    in Politics

    LatinoTalk Texas is America's only daily independent political analysis from the Latino perspective.  On today's show I discussed a number of timely issues important Latinos and Latinos in Texas. First, I read an article from Latina.com that pointed out Latino celebrities that are not afraid to comment on political issues especially those important to other Latinos like Immigration Reform which this show favors greatly. Next, I discuss the insulting prospect that a conservative "news" outlet joked the murderess of Selena Quintanilla Perez would be released from prison. This is not true but remains personally insulting. I read an article from "Latinos Ready to Vote" outlining the religiosity of Mexicanos and Mexican Americans in America. No surprise the vast majority, like this show, are Catholic. Later, I mention that Texas Values is working on a number of morality issues in Texas and among them is the effort to defend Christmas and other religious expression which this show also supports. Another issue in the sights of Texas Values is the City of Plano, Texas that has passed a controversial "equal rights" ordinance. Opponents say it violates the First Amendment Freedom of Religion. I enter into a reminding discussion of my perception of the two major political forces in America. They are the Culture of Life and the Culture of Anti-Life or the Culture of Death. Because this show and the vast majority of Latinos are Catholic, we are among the Culture of Life and work to expose the Culture of Death and its means of undermining the Culture of Life. Lastly, I read two articles about Immigration Reform. One article from CNN and by an economist reports on the financial benefits of Immigration Reform which confirms what we have said for years. Lastly, another article articulates the political pitfalls the Republicans have now they have failed to act on Immigration Reform.

    LatinoTalk Texas 2015, 0009 American Latino Issues & Culture

    in Politics

    Today's show discusses the real solution to America's immigration problems and also the continuing fallout and analysis from the anti-immigration Bigot King rally in Iowa attended by GOP leaders with some notable exceptions. Also, I discuss some news regarding trends in Latino economic success and growth in America with an article from Forbes magazine. Finally I read two pieces of cultural significance. Writer Michelle Garcia inaugurates a column concerning the image of Texas which over the decades has eliminated Latinos from the picture. Finally, I read a piece about Vicente Fernandez and his farewell tour. We find that there continues to be analysis and fallout from the bigot King's rally in Iowa and Linda Chavez does a great job with her analysis calling Donald Trump a fool. I appreciate that. Later, Alex Nowrasteh's article concerning the tremendous need for a Guest Worker Program similar to the Bracero program of the 1950's is essential to solving our illegal immigration problem because even though our Border Patrol is 500% larger than in the past and we have hundreds of miles of fencing we still have a large illegal immigration problem but no guest worker program. I argue that is a solution but that our opponents refuse to discuss that because they are only interested, because they are anti-Latino bigots, in removing Latinos from America. Forbes magazine reports that Latinos suffered more during the recent recession but gained more quickly than other groups and reported on the top cities for Latinos in America. Cities in Florida and Texas faired better than the traditionally top ranking cities of the past: New York, Miami, and Los Angeles.

    LatinoTalk Texas 2014, 0037 Daniel Garza & Pending Immigration Action

    in Politics

    HUGE SHOW, TODAY!!  Daniel Garza with The LIBRE Initiative called the show along with David R Gonzalez and Elias Bemudez who are Immigration Reform Activists from Arizona.  They, along with myself, are all Independent Latino Political Activists who seek better representation for Latinos in America..  We discussed the terrible situation for DREAMERS and those in their families who live in fear of arrest and deportation unnecessarily due to Obama's harsh policies and they demand relief.  However, if Obama gives such relief it would eliminate any possibility that the Congress will act on CIR in any meaningful fashion.  Daniel Garza seeks to address this and obtain real legal relief and address the great need for MORE immigration to America and not less.  At the same time the DREAMERS are drowning and must have relief.   But I warn and my callers agree that Obama is blame and will only act if he can do so for his own political benefit.  Callers agree that the Democrats take the Latino vote for granted and the Republicans are bullies and that Latinos must have their own leaders.  We lament that Jose' Jose Peñalosa for Arizona , another Independent Latino, was not elected in Arizona.  My callers were; however, surprised, although Daniel Garza was fully aware, that the main source of the anti-immigration effort in America derives from the John Tanton Network of radical environmentalists from Planned Parenthood.  They have major leaders and activists at the leadership of both major parties and thus, Latinos have not political party on their side.  Great show today!! Tell your friends that LatinoTalk Latino Talk Texas is America's only daily political analysis from the independent Latino perspective.

    LatinoTalk Texas 2015, 0013 Lent, Morality & Growing Immoral Culture

    in Politics

    LatinoTalk Texas is news, issues and interviews important to Latinos in America.  Guest Andy Bravo calls in to discuss the issues today. Today, I discuss the vast differences in the Culture of Life and its nemesis, the Culture of Death also known as the Culture of Anti-Life or the Culture of New Morality of Immorality. I introduce this topic as being important in these days of Lent especially for Latinos who are mostly Catholic. Today, I compare the issues of Abortion, Homosexual marriage and euthanasia as being examples of the new morality of immorality. For example, Homosexuality is clearly immoral but by seeking through the courts under the pretense of "Equal Protection under the Law" to nullify enumerable state laws the set the guidelines for the state to sanction marriages the homosexual community hopes to gain such sanctions and make their relationships "normal" and part of a new morality. In other words they have sought to cast anyone who disagrees with them as a bigot and immoral themselves for defend their own moral standings. Thus, I point out the "New Morality of Immorality" which is not unrelated to other machinations of the culture of death or anti-life which also favors abortion on demand and euthanasia. How many cultures have practiced these horrific and immoral behaviors? Nazi Germany, Stalinist Russia, America in the days of the Indian Wars and many more. Today, in America, as I read there are expanding efforts to promote euthanasia which my caller, Andy Bravo mistook for End of Life Palliative care. That is why I discuss these issues so that Latinos in America will be well informed.

    LatinoTalk Texas 2014, 0041 Guest Charlie Garza & Judeo-Christian Principles

    in Politics

    LatinoTalk Texas is news, issues and interviews important to American Latinos.  This is America's only daily indepedent political analysis from the Latino perspective.  Today, Charlie Garza, was my guest. Charlie was a member of the State Board of Education in Texas and at the time of his election a few years ago he was the only Latino Republican elected to statewide office in Texas. I actually helped with his campaign those few years ago and I'm proud of my involvement with his campaign. Charlie called to mention how the left is working hard at every turn and especially concerning the selection of textbooks in Texas to eliminate any reference to our common judeo-christian principles in the founding of our nation and the basis of our common laws in America. I explained why the culture of death, represented by the Democrats in America seek to use euphemisms to cover the truth about their actions. I went on to give the example and read a news article about Planned Parenthood's claiming they offer pre-cancer screenings when the evidence is clear that PP does NOT offer any such screenings. The news indicates the Pro-Life effort to remove all public funds in Texas from Planned Parenthood. I agree that is the best policy and those funds should go to agencies that actually do provide women's healthcare. Then Charlie and I discuss the anti-immigration effort and I inform him of the true importance of immigration reform, that America needs MORE immigration and not less but that the very same forces of the culture of death are also the same types of people who bring the anti-immigration efforts and that they are motivated by an anti-Latino fervor. Finally I read two news articles about a federal lawsuit brought by Texas AG Greg Abbott over Obama's executive action on Immigration reform and mention that Arturo Carmona, a guest on this show, was quoted in the article.

    LatinoTalk Texas 2015, 0005 A New Day in Texas & America?

    in Politics

    Is it really a "New Day" in Texas and America? I review the SOTU address and comment negatively on Obama's motivations to increase taxes on the wealthiest Americans which is just more class warfare and bad economic policy and give France as an example. I am; however, that Obama offers hawkish rhetoric with regard to terrorism and ISIL. Until now I have critical of Obama's response to ISIL and terrorism. I am, on the other hand, critical of Obama on Immigration Reform and criticize him for not promoting CIR. I maintain he is no hero on that subject. Lastly, I criticize Obama for taking a victory lap on the economy when the statistics when fully examined show a very weak recovery and still a precarious situation. Lastly, I continue to blame Obama and the Democrats for the moral decay that has beset our nation. Before I go on to Texas news I comment on the Tea party response by Clawson of Florida who tauted among other issues the Tea party's desire to limit all forms of immigration which confirms what I have said about them for years now: The Tea Party is nativist and isolationist. Then on to issues in Texas and I read an article about the new Texas Governor, Greg Abbott, who is struggling to post conciliatory rhetoric to Latinos and minorities in Texas while he hides from his support for the anti-Latino Arizona SB 1070. Simultaneously, the commentary in the article was about Joe Straus, Speaker and Abbott trying to contain radical Lt. Governor, Dan Patrick. Patrick who will reinvent himself depending upon who is listening and, in my opinion, has ZERO honor, will cater to the radical anti-immigration forces from the Tea Party. Finally, I read quickly an article detailing the US Chamber of Commerce 13 steps to a robust economy which they agree is still very weak and could easily collapse. Among those options they declare Immigration Reform is Key. LatinoTalk Texas is news, issues and interviews important to Latinos in America.

    LatinoTalk Texas 2014, 0036 Climate Hoax, Latino Voting & European Recession

    in Politics

    LatinoTalk Texas is about news, issues and interviews of importance to American Latinos.  On today's show, I share my perspective on the fear mongering climate alarmists by reading the details of political satirists cartoon on the subject which points out the in 1970 the climate alarmists warned of a coming Ice age.  Finally, they cried about global warming and now they cry about "climate change" while the real agenda is global communism.  Industrialized nations, in the plan, contribute large sums of money to 3rd world nations so they won't have to develop industrialization and that's the story but the real story is communism.  Later, I read three blog pieces: one by Ruben Navarette decrying the  biter debate between the anti-immigration folks who say Obama, The Deporter in Chief, is not doing his job at all!  I agree with Navarette that Obama has been very harsh with his deportation policies and we must have relief but from whom?  I suspect neither.  Later, I read two pieces that without all the facts claim the Republicans are winning over the Latino vote.  This is simply not correct because although in the last election there may have been 30-40% Latino voters who voted that way the complete truth is that only about 30% of the total Latino electorate actually voted.  Thus, the GOP only got a third of the total which was, itself, only a third of the total.  If you do the math, they got 10% of the Latino vote.  In reality, Latino voters, disgusted with Obama and unwilling to vote Republican because of the harsh rhetoric simply stayed home.  Finally, I read big news from Catholic Pulse that reports that Pope Francis will visit the USA next September and attend the "World Meeting of Families" in Philadelphia.

    LatinoTalk Texas 2014, 0030 Latino influence in this and upcoming elections

    in Politics

    LatinoTalk Texas is America's ONLY daily independent political analysis for the Latino Perspective! On today's show, I read some articles concerning the potential for Jeb Bush, a favorite among many Latinos, to run for the Republican Presidential nomination.  However, I continue to remind how the very qualities that make me and other Latinos like Jeb Bush are also the same things that make Tea party types hate him.  I discuss the dynamics of the Tea party grip on the Republican Party's metaphorical throat and how that will control the next set of presidential elections.  Following on that I discuss the New Mexico Governor race involving Susana Martinez who is the nation's first elected Latina Governor.  A loft accomplishment, no doubt but she has done some anti-Latino things in her state to satisfy the Tea party's anti-Latino agenda.  She could be nominated for Vice President if either Jeb Bush or even a Tea Party type like Rand Paul wins the nomination for President.  I'm not sure if the latter would actually be good for Latinos.  Later, I discuss some case studies of the actual sorrow and suffering imposed by Obama's harsh deportation policies which he could have changed years ago but he lied, lied and lied about it all much to the detriment of Latinos in America.  Finally, I discuss a commentary by Pope Francis about the attack on the sacrament and institution of marriage.  I couch that discussion in the larger context of the battle between the Culture of Life and the Culture of Death which benefits from destruction of marriage, the very foundation of the Culture of Life.
