Program Summary: 29 Jan. 2015
The NYPD police officer union’s outrageous assertion that New York Mayor Bill de Blasio had “blood on his hands” in the murder of two NYPD officers, is consistent with the reactionary role of police unions across the country. They came to prominence in the wake of the civil rights movement. Police unions have played a powerful role in resisting all manner police reforms and in defending police officers no matter how outrageous and racist their actions. Attorney Flint Taylor brought an analysis of police unions playing a major role in defending cops throughout the last few decades in his article Blood On Their Hands: The Racist History of Police Unions.

Mitt Romney started his speech Wednesday night at Mississippi State sounding more like a commencement speaker than a political candidate.Romney's opening was a soft mixture of self-deprecation about his college days – "I was an English major, which meant I had no idea what I would do for a living" – and a recounting of some of the human lessons he learned during the 2012 presidential election. Clarion-Ledger
"Mitt ran and failed. He failed. So you can't have Romney," he said, as the audience cheered robustly.Donald Trump Des Moines Register
Willard met in Boston last week and went as far as to discuss where campaign headquarters might be located. Romney also is trying to sell an 11,000-square-foot home he is building in La Jolla, Calif. The house, and its car elevator, was used in 2012 to portray him as rich and out of touch.Before his appearance on campus, Romney stopped by Little Dooey, a barbecue restaurant that had a sign outside welcoming him. Wearing Hudson jeans and an open-collared shirt, he stepped out of a black SUV and quickly declared, “I like pulled pork.”. Boston Globe
LatinoTalk Texas is news, issues and interviews. Today, I read several articles detailing both the nature and fallout of the Bigot King's Tea Party rally in Iowa. I also discuss the nature of the growing rift between the Republican Party and the Tea party radicals among them. It is evident when we see how immigration is the fulcrum upon which their behavior balances. Just as my analysis indicated weeks ago. Furthermore we see evidence of this in the way Boehner handles legislation in the US Congress and how Jeb Bush and his detractors behave challenging him on immigration....yet again. I also read an article about TV Journalist Jorge Ramos of Univsion and how he too is challenging the Republicans on their hard line anti-immigration effort and how the ultimately seek to oust all illegal immigrants. I point out how the Tea party's agenda is same as their sponsor the Tanton Network's agenda to reduce the American population by half by largely deporting millions upon millions of people. I caution that though I'm glad Jeb Bush favors Immigration and education reform I doubt he has a chance in the poisoned Republican field while the Democrats are happy to sit back and watch with popcorn.
