    GOP Is A Neo-Confederate Party Now - South & Religious Right Have Devoured GOP!

    in Politics Progressive

    When Lester Maddox was governor of Georgia in the late 1960s, he insisted that the problem with the state’s prisons was “the poor quality of its inmates.”

    Maddox was a Democrat and an ardent defender of the Apartheid South, not exactly an American statesman. Yet his defense of Georgia’s prison system turns out to be a perfect metaphor for today’s Republican Party, created when political consultant Kevin Phillips realized that Nixon’s 43.9 percent, added to George Wallace’s 13.5 percent of the popular vote in the 1968 election, was the beginning of a coalition that would ensure a permanent Republican majority in the South. (Phillips has spent the second half of his life atoning for and writing about his Southern Strategy.)

    To understand the posturing of the Republican candidates this year, you have to take into account the quality of the inmates––the Southern, conservative, anti-immigrant base that dominates the party Lincoln helped create to confront the nativism and anti-immigration politics of the Democrats and Know Nothings in the 1850s.

    The candidates––not their backers and constituency-group leaders––got most of the media attention at last month’s Values Voters Summit in Washington because they are the candidates––and because their pronouncements, which range from deeply disturbing to utterly risible, are newsworthy.

    When Ted Cruz implies that if elected, he will kill Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, that’s news. When Mike Huckabee promises to invoke the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to ban abortion with the stroke of a pen, because the unborn are fully fledged citizens of the United States (“None of your daughters and daughters-in-law called you up and said ‘Guess What? I’m going to have a blob of tissue.’”), that’s also news.

    LaitnoTalk Texas 2014, 0012 The True Nature of the Anti-Immigration Agenda

    in Politics

    Today, I continue to discuss the nativist agenda in America by discussing the Amptoons.com political cartoon, posted below, and how the anti-Catholic and Anti-Semetic bigotry are old traditions in America and they have, over the centuries affected Irish, Chinese, Japanese, and Latinos as they do today. Then, after reading a piece by Ruben Navarette, I discuss how my membership in the fb group "El Conservador" has been terminated and I read some of their commentary which serves as a mouthpiece for the evil white supremacist Tanton Network. Then ensues a discussion of why America needs MORE immigration, not less and the fact that the Tanton Network does not represent the facts completely or correctly that the American birthrate is on the decline and must be resurrected or our culture and economy will collapse. Finally, I share a discussion of capitalism and its integral nature to our culture and our American economy and how that supports American innovation and leadership. As an example I comment on the remark, "If it can be made here (in America) it should be" which I remark is not correct but seems so. I correct that it should read, "If it can be made here competitively, it will be." Finally, I explain why this is true and American innovation fueled by investment is alive and well today. Finally, I point out that my analysis of Chinese and Russian aggression is the result of American retreat was echoed by the National Review.

    LatinoTalk Texas 2014, 0009 The Anti-Latino Agenda enabled by Latino Inaction

    in Politics

    Today's show concerns the lack of voter participation by Latinos and how that fact has enabled the anti-Latino forces from the Tanton Network to act politically against us by convincing Republicans that it's okay to act the way they do against Latinos.  They have an active agenda to hide the true roots of the anti-immigration reform agenda but understand that it is truly is anti-Latino in origin.  Furthermore, I remind you that the Tanton Network is hard at work in the Democrat party and Obama, the "Deporter in Chief", is also NOT your friend. Confused yet?  Wondering what to do?  Not Voting is NOT the answer!  You must VOTE!  Latinos not voting is why Democrats don't care and why Republicans can be openly hostile toward you.  Vote independently.  Vote and/or support someone you trust, not their party, but the person.  In the voting booth, write in your own name or the name of someone you trust.

    LatinoTalk Texas 2014, 0002 The Independent Latino Perspective on Immigration

    in Politics

    LatinoTalk Texas is about News, interviews and opinion on topic important to American Latinos.  Find us at www.latinotalktexas.com and on Facebook.  I am your host, Lauro Garza, and I can be found on Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+.  This is our second episode and I spend some time introducting the show and myself.  I read comments from David Jennings from "Big Jolly Politics"  who is a journalist in Houston who sought to learn my positions on "illegal immigration" which, undoubtedly, most conservatives think that is the only thing we Latino think about.  I read also my comments back to Jennings include my assertions that America needs both border security but also and very importantly that America needs MORE immigration. To be successful,  We must also overcome the vocal minority of representatives who advocate the evil John Tanton Network who are anti-Latino and are population control radical environmentalists who all come from Planned Parenthood.  I assert that because these radicals have leaders at the highest levels in the Demcrat Party and, through the Tea Parties, also in the Republican Party that Latinos have NO friends anywhere and we should all be INDEPEDENT.  

    I read the headlines from my main source of news, CatholicPulse.com, the news service of the Knights of Columbus, because it is a great source of news and the news service of the Knights of Columbus of which I am a long time member.

    RC Radio with Arthur Goldwag

    in US Government

    My guest on the Tuesday March 20th Reality Check Radio program will be Arthur Goldwag, author of a several of popular books on conspiracy theories. His latest work, published by Pantheon books, is The New Hate: A History of Fear and Loathing on the Populist Right. Here is the description of the book from Amazon:
    From “Birthers” who claim that Barack Obama was not born in the United States to counter-jihadists who believe that the Constitution is in imminent danger of being replaced with Sharia law, conspiratorial beliefs have become an increasingly common feature of our public discourse. In this deeply researched, fascinating exploration of the ideas and rhetoric that have animated extreme, mostly right-wing movements throughout American history, Arthur Goldwag reveals the disturbing pattern of fear-mongering and demagoguery that runs through the American grain.
    The New Hate takes readers on a surprising, often shocking, sometimes bizarrely amusing tour through the swamps of nativism, racism, and paranoid speculations about money that have long thrived on the American fringe. Goldwag shows us the parallels between the hysteria about the Illuminati that wracked the new American Republic in the 1790s and the McCarthyism that roiled the 1950s, and he discusses the similarities between the anti–New Deal forces of the 1930s and the Tea Party movement today. He traces Henry Ford’s anti-Semitism and the John Birch Society’s “Insiders” back to the notorious Protocols of the Elders of Zion, and he relates white supremacist nightmares about racial pollution to nineteenth-century fears of papal plots.

    0008 2011 Conservative Latino Talk Radio

    in Politics Conservative

    0008 2011, Thurs, Jan 27, Conservative Latino Talk Radio is news, issues, events and culture of importance to Latinos in America. More discussion of crypto-libertarianism as Senator Rand Paul illustrates his isolationism with a bill to cut Defense spending on the defense efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan. I report how this isolationism/protectionism, peculiar to crypto-libertarians is kindred with the nativism that appeals to so many bigots and racists in such movements as White Supremacists and Neo-Nazi's and also the radicals from the Tanton Network who are also White Supremacists. I also speak of the extremely precarious position our American economy is in as we face the prospect of inflation and the inability to borrow any more money! As we are very DEEEEP in debt now, if China or England were to refuse to lend us any more, that would be enough to cause investments to pulled from our nation and our economy would collapse!!! Then there's news from Somos Republicans in Florida and their efforts to propose anti-immigrant laws. Lastly, Speaker of the House John Boehner supports school choice which, until recently, was the chief subject for Latinos in America.

    0112 2010 Conservative Latino Talk Radio

    in Politics Conservative

    0112 2010, Wed, July 7, Conservative Latino Talk Radio is America's only daily conservative talk from the Latino perspective. After a long break for Independence Day, LatinoTalk is back. Today, I read a news article describing the federal lawsuit against Arizona and its SB 1070. I then read segments of my piece entitled "If you hang 'em all, you get the guilty" which discusses the unconstitutionality of that law. Further, I discuss my disappointment with Jan Brewer and Russel Pearce of Arizona who have demonstrated themselves to be clear liars with regard to this topic. I also commented that this activity, nativist, is related somehow to the isolationist/protectionist agenda of the crypto-libertarians. Both seem to have infiltrated the Republican Party.
