    LatinoTalk Texas 2014, 0043 Catholic traditions & 287g Immigration Enforcement

    in Politics

    LatinoTalk Texas is news, issues and interviews important to Latinos in America.  On today's show, December 12th, I discuss the Feast Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe which is very important to Latinos in America, especially Mexicanos and ethnic Mexicans like myself. I read an article about riders in Illinois who rode to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Des Plaines and delivered a rose while passing on horseback. I went on to read more news from the Catholic News Service concerning the Synod of the Family and Conscious Rights of Catholics under assault in liberal America both by the Obama administration and the liberal City of Washington DC which enacted similar ordinances as Plano, and Houston, Texas which challenge religious freedom and expression. Later in the show, a caller, Juan Martinez, a former police officer in the Dallas Ft. Worth area called to ask about 287g, a federal program that enables local law enforcement to question person incarcerated to determine if they should be evaluated by immigration enforcement. Martinez wanted to know if that program is still in effect. I reported that as I know it is but in reference to SB 1070 which was largely found to be unconstitutional but also still authorized in vague terms state and local law enforcement to be "assist" immigration and customs authorities. Previously, this was not true as the Supremacy Clause prevented state and local LEO from investigating such matters without 287g authorization. However, since the SB1070 case, states have new authorization and in places like Arizona, they uses it indiscriminately and over zealously. I am very worried about the laws Dan Patrick will pass here in Texas and use it to violate the rights of Latinos here in Texas simply because we may look "foreign." Clearly a violation of the 4th Amendment.

    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 2014, 0039 Thanksgiving, Christmas & Catholic news

    in Politics

    On today's show, I discuss first the importance and significance of both the Thanksgiving holiday and the beginning of the Christmas season which began yesterday with Advent. I also point out the importance of praying for those less fortunate who suffer in poverty and oppression. I urge you to give to poor during the Christmas season as well. On the line of religion which is so important to Latinos, I read two important news articles related to that. Bishop Chaput of Philadelphia gives an interview regarding Pope Francis' visit there coming next year and comments on the nature of biased news reporting concerning the Pontiff's commentary. In another article concerning Pope Francis, the Pontiff met with Patriarch Bartholomew I in Istanbul, Turkey over the weekend and the Pontiff received the blessing of the Patriarch in the form of a kiss upon his head. This is a continuing of the efforts of reapproachment by Saint Pope John Paul, The Great, who sought to engage in diplomatic and religious amity with the Orthodox and Protestant Churches. Pope Benedict XVI also continued the effort and made great strides in connecting with members of the Episcopal Churches. Pope Francis continues this effort and this event marks another great stride forward as it is recognized that the two churches are co-equal and parallel in their direction. I then read an article about a Rasmussen poll that reportedly shows that 62% of "LIKELY' voters opposed Obama's executive action regarding immigration. Though I read the article I also criticize it as being biased and the poll as also being biased and aimed at propaganda possibly. I also read an article concerning the slight slowing of "Black Friday" sales this year. Lastly, I read briefly the news about the upcoming test launch of the new NASA space exploration capsule, Orion. I am very excited about this new spacecraft.

    LatinoTalk Texas 2014, 0034 Ben Carson announces for President and more

    in Politics

    On today's show I read more news concerning the past election, the results, news that Dr. Ben Carson will run for President, some news concerning the Culture of Life and finally news that Obama will finally take the Islamic State Army seriously. Regarding Dr. Ben Carson announces that he is running for President.  He is an accomplished man saving lives, and being a very devoted Christian.  I compare Carson with Jeb Bush and report that I like and respect them both but that unlike Bush, Carson does not annoy the Tea parties which actually worries me.  In the news that Republicans made inroads with Latinos this election cycle.  I have my doubts.   I talked about this on my show, Latino Talk Texas, today. I believe that rather than assuming these numbers in percentages mean more Republican support they actually mean that because of very low voter turn out that there was great apathy toward Obama and the Democrats and that the few voters that actually did turn out were energized Republican voters. Thus, you get weird results in low voter elections.  Then, we discuss the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals has Upheld a same sex marriage ban and that opens the door to a Supreme Court hearing on the matter and I add my perceptions on the issues as a Christian and my understanding of the law.  Finally, I discuss the nature of the problem with the Islamic State Army and am glad that Obama will seek specific congressional authority to address the problems but I submit that, again, it is too damned little, too damned late.  I also mentioned earlier in the show that Secy of State John Kerry announced in talks with China that the USA would not take any position with regard to Chines movements in the South China Sea which should be a headline but was lost in the election drama.  This is a major departure for US foreign policy and will strongly affect the situation with Japan, Indonesia, Phillippines, and Viet Nam.

    LatinoTalk Texas 2014, 0031 All Hallows Eve and Independent Voting

    in Politics

    LatinoTalk Texas is America's only daily independent political analysis from the Latino perspective.  On today's show, I discuss the nature of Halloween or "All Hallows Eve" or "All Souls Day" which is a Catholic Holiday.  Later, I discuss the importance of voting and voting independently.  Do not vote a party line but vote for each candidate on their own merits and if you find no candidate you can trust, then vote for yourself as a write In candidate.  The Latino vote is in the news because it is important and will soon control many elections.  But for now, the Democrats don't care or respect you and the Republicans, controlled by the nativists at the Tea parties, simply hate and fear you.  Don't trust either of them!  Please see the terrific and humorous video by Al Madrigal seen on the Jon Stewart show.  Read about the backlash against Obama, Hillary Clinton and other Democrats by Latino activists regarding inaction on Immigration Reform.  I later read an essay by Ruben Navarette regarding Latino voting and he confirms we should vote independently!  I also read a piece by Newt Gingrich regarding the wildly radical movements by Houston Mayor Annise Parker who is quietly pushing the Homosexual agenda in Houston and facing a backlash, responded with a lawsuit against pastors.  Lastly, Pope Francis made remarks recently that were misinterpreted or flatly misrepresented by media types about science and the nature of creation which I discussed on my shows recently.  I finish by commenting that Catholics are not "literalists" who believe, for example, the universe is only 6 thousand years old.  Have a good weekend.

    LatinoTalk Texas 2014, 0025 The Importance of Voting Independently

    in Politics

    LatinoTalk Texas is America's only daily Independent Political Analysis from the Latino Perspective.  On today's show, I spend several minutes discussing the nature of the Latino vote and the imperativeness that American Latinos get out and vote. I read a piece by Maria Teresa Kumar, co-foundress of Voto Latino, who said in her essay, "How the Latino Vote became a Movement for Change," that, "Latinos also realize it is up to us to vote to protect our families and our communities. Only by building our segment of the electorate can we change the bad politics practiced by both major parties that now stands in the way of needed policy changes on immigration reform and other issues. " which deeply echoes my many remarks on this, America's only daily independent political analysis from the Latino perspective. I later describe the sad state of affairs in Iraq and Syria as Islamic State Army is at the doorstep of Bagdad and our air campaign under dubious leadership is failing. Lastly, I discuss the fear mongering that is going on behind "Climate Change" agenda.

    LatinoTalk Texas 2014, 0026 Ebola, Terrorism and the failures of Obama admin

    in Politics

    LatinoTalk Texas is America's only daily independent political analysis from the Latino perspective presented in English.  I discuss the failures of the CDC to effectively deal with Ebola in America despite their early assertions they knew how to deal with it.  Texas HB 2 has been blocked by the Supreme Court.  The many failings of the Obama administration regarding the prosecution of the war against the Islamic State.  The news is that they are advances and I complain this is too little to late.  I warn that if Bagdad fails to the Islamic State then we will have a real war on our hands.  The headline coming to a news outlet near you, "Obama loses the War in Iraq!"  In Houston, Mayor Annise Parker a open homosexual, is pushing the homosexual agenda in Houston.   A lawsuit was brought because she ignored thousands of signatures on petitions to bring one of her ordinances to a referendum.  She responded by issuing subpoenas to Pastors in violation of the First Amendement.  This makes world wide news.  In more news I read about the war in Syria and how Turkey, our NATO ally, demands that we go to war with Bashaar Al Assad in Syria but Obama resists that notion.  I'm okay with doing so but recognize it is a very difficult issue.  Obama is dead set against sending US troops into this war and that is unwise.

    LatinoTalk Texas 2014, 0024 Space, God's Creation and Exploration

    in Politics

    LatinoTalk Texas is America's only daily indepedent political analysis from the Latino perspective presented in English for all to hear.  On today's show I discuss space, the universe, our place in it and the magnificence of God's incredible creation. I speak about the incredible complexity and vastness of the universe and yet how it possesses incredible simplicity and beauty and that is an example of God's handiwork. I contrast that with the commentary of Professor Stephen Hawking who remarked once that "God is not needed for the Universe but only gravity is needed" (paraphrasing). Then, after the break, I read one of my pieces that describes the nature of space exploration and how any and all space exploration is best done on the Moon not only for scientific value but also for economic value. I lament deeply the cancellation of the Constellation program by the lying BHO who said he supported it.

    LatinoTalk Texas 2014, 0022 The Texas Governor Race

    in Politics

    LatinoTalk Texas is America's only daily Independent Latino Political analysis program in English.  In the first segment I reiterated the importance of voting and why there are political forces in America who don't want you to vote.  Don't listen to them because Latinos are about to become the dominant force in America and there are those Democrats who don't care about you but believe they own you.  And the Republicans have been taken over by the anti-Latino Tea parties and they hate you and want you to leave America.  You must go vote but you can vote independently.  Please do so!  In the second segment I discuss the importance of the Latino vote in the Texas Governor race and how Greg Abbott who is married to a Latina and is also ardently pro-Life seeks to attract the votes of Pro-Life Latinos in the Rio Grande Valley where, incidentally, Wendy Davis, the Democrat nominee for Governor lost the race against a Pro-Life Latino in those same RGV counties.  I'm independent, and cannot support either Davis or Abbott.  Davis is so corrupt she can't visit her own children.  Remember, she rose to fame because she defended abortion at any cost.  Abbott, on the other hand wrote a "Friend of Court Brief" in favor of the very deliberately anti-Latino Arizona SB 1070 which was largely found to be unconstitutional.  He knew better and when questioned about it he preferred to avoid the subject.  He's running from it, I think, and he, politically, seeks to have his cake and eat it too.  In other words, he's anti-Latino in one crowd of Tea partiers and Pro-Life and Pro-Latino in another crowd in south Texas.  I just don't trust either one and won't support either one.  Vote independently!

    LatinoTalk Texas 2014, 0020 Lamenting the loss of Constellation Program

    in Politics

    On today's show, the nature and importance of our space programs, its influence on our daily lives, and the importance of the prestige associated with our manned space program as it is the hallmark of a "global power." I explain in the first segment how space program affects our daily lives.  Then I discuss the nature of the Constellation Program and its brilliance as being derived from the Space Shuttle system and how Obama cancelled it abruptly. I also discuss the value of the Moon for developing and testing long duration space flight and habitation and mention the several problems that have happened concerning human factors in space flight aboard both Russian and American spacecraft and how America still has more research to do concerning long duration space flight that would be necessary to go to Mars or an asteroid. It makes more sense to return to the Moon to learn those things rather than rush out to an asteroid or Mars without knowing how to do it successfully. I explain the geniuses who caused the cancellation of the Constellation program, Huntress and Holdren, and why they were wrong. Finally, I discuss the minimal reconstitution of the Constellation Program by Congress in the Space Launch System, called SLS, and its terrible slow roll from Obama and Holden and that rocket and its Orion capsule won't be launched, manned, until the early 2020's and we could be flying NOW if Constellation was left in place.
