    LatinoTalk Texas 2015, 0012 Latino Issues continue to Split GOP

    in Politics

    In Austin and Washington, the Republicans efforts to pander to the radical and bigoted anti-Latino Tea party is costing them their reputation and could cost us all our very security. the Tea party's platform is fundamentally based upon an agenda set by the radical white supremacist Tanton Network. Thus, they will do anything they can to oppose all forms of immigration and force Latinos into leaving America. the Republican Party, ten years ago, chose to embrace the Tea parties at the expense of Latinos. Those people have long left and more are alienated every day. Today, however, there are still a few Republicans unwilling to pander to the radical minority Tea party types like The Bigot King, Louie Gohmert and Ted Cruz. In Austin, Joe Straus, Speaker of the House, says he will not support an effort to remove "In State Tuition" from undocumented students in opposition to Lt. Governor Dan Patrick who ran on that issue in his campaign. Straus also said that border security is a law enforcement measure and not the business of the National Guard. Contrastingly, John Boehner, Speaker of the House in Washington, continues to attempt to placate the Tea party radicals with his manufactured lie that Obama's executive action on immigration was, in his words, unconstitutional. It was not. It is a lie to say so. But they are sticking to that lie and playing a dangerous game of chicken with the Democrats in the Senate over it. In fact, the Republicans who are all about "law and order" are in a position to have the DHS run OUT of funding by the end of this month! But they are trying to bet their way out of the bluff with your money and safety. It is really very sad and I'm very sorry to see John Boehner, who knows better and favors immigration reform fail to stand up for what is right and good for America in a failing effort to placate the radical Tea party. So sorry to see that.

    LatinoTalk Texas 2015, 0011 News & Issues important to American Latinos

    in Politics

    Some positive immigration issue news from UT Austin and some semi-good news from Washington on the same topic. The rest of the show is about the Culture of Death and their manifestations in the political world. UT systems Chancellor, McCraven publicly opposed efforts to end state level tuition for undocumented youth in Texas. In Washington, a Senator from Maine offered a compromise bill to leave in place Obama executive orders from 2012 but still overturn actions from 2014. Republicans are trying to unfund the Dept. of Homeland Security which is the exact opposite of the "rule of law." I read several articles that discuss the importance of religion and the news derived from that. Pope Francis who will visit the US in Sept wrote to a Father in Arizona who leads young people who run a soup kitchen in Nogales, Sonora, for the benefit of migrants. The Holy Father supports them and encourages them. There is some rumor the Pope will visit the Mexico border to examine the plight of migrants. In other news, Pope Francis, while in America will speak at the UN and will also be the first Pope to address a joint session of Congress. Archbishop Charles Chaput recently spoke at Brigham Young University and stated that it was our duty as religious persons to speak up about it. I comment that is one reason I produce this show. I read an article about the President's remarks at the recent prayer breakfast and frankly I am STUNNED at his remarks! He, in effect, said, that because some much tragedy has been done in the name of Christ that we Christians should not be so quick to judge those attacking Christians. During today's show, I also comment that I am concerned that soon the Libertarian point of view on many social issues will soon come out and the Culture of Life agenda will suffer for it because Libertarians who support efforts against abortion will not defend efforts against euthanasia, drug use, homosexual marriage and so on.

    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 2015, 0007 More fallout from the GOP Bigot King Rally

    in Politics

    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.

    LatinoTalk Texas 2015, 0006 Republicans Pander to Tea Party Bigotry

    in Politics

    On today's show I focus on the Republican function of the odious and horrid anti-Latino bigot, Steve King, Republican congressman from Iowa. His function, co-sponsored by the Tea Party, featured Republican presidential hopefuls who sought to pander to the white supremacist tastes of the Tea party and Steve King. But first I discuss how recently there were Pro-Life rallies across the nation and in Washington DC and I contrast that Pro-Life agenda and the commentary made by those rally attendees who remark that "Life is a gift" which is fully correct and compare that with the conduct and the remarks of the Culture of Death, among which is the Tanton network of anti-immigration and white supremacist organizations. Which leads us back to Steve King, who along with Jeff Sessions, Ted Cruz and Rand Paul are all ardent advocates of the Tanton Network and their anti-immigration agendas. It is shocking to me also that the Tea Party types claim to be "Pro-Life" while they take their guidance from the culture of death organization, Tanton Network, and use horrible terms like "anchor baby" and I've actually heard them say things like, "You can have your baby, just not here (in America). I go on to read an article by an author in Iowa who reports that Iowa no longer picks winners but only picks Republican losers since Steve King took the leadership there. I agree and am glad someone has pointed it out. In contrast, Jeb Bush stayed away from this function and continues to tout a campaign based upon CIR and Education Reform. I'm glad and point that no one running for President now, either GOP or Democrat is also doing so. I assert that the Bush campaign will serve as a fulcrum or wedge inside the GOP and will soon demonstrate which direction the GOP will go: With the Tea party and failure or away from them and back to the Latino embrace.

    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 2015, 0004 Immigration still the Fulcrum in Politics

    in Politics

    Happy Martin Luther King day!  LatinoTalk Texas is news issues and interviews impoortant to American Latinos.  Today, Martin Luther King Day, I read a piece I published a few years ago in SomosRepublicans.com entitled, Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr - Martyr. Today's episode is titled "Immigration Still the Fulcrum in Politics" and I prove that up with several articles detailing how immigration issues still balance the politics in Texas, among Republicans nationally, and in American Latino Politics. Republicans in Texas seek to investigate and immigration status of students in Texas and I state this will result in ethnic discrimination against Latinos in Texas and not all students. This is wrong and immoral and will result negatively against Republicans. Additionally, Republicans are accused nationally of avoiding immigration topics in the upcoming 2016 debates by not allowing Univision to cover their debates. There is more news about Univision as they are in a whopping 96% of Latino homes in America and now, its majority owner, Haim Saban, has formed a relationship with Hillary Clinton and says it is a dream of his for her to become president. Powerful news and I conclude that the Republicans are fooling themselves to think they can win any more national elections without earning the Latino vote. I conclude that even Jeb Bush who strongly favors Latinos and CIR cannot win as a Republican considering that the rest of the Republican party then and still even harder today strives to drive away Latino voters with their anti-Latino legislation in Texas and nationally.

    LatinoTalk Texas 2015, 0001 First Show of 2015!

    in Politics

    I remark, first, on the fact that the Christmas season actually came to end yesterday with the Epiphany of the Lord and discussed how it is celebrated among Latinos. I go on to read Pope Francis's comments on this important celebration of Christmas. I read an article about Bishop Tobin in Rhode Island rejected an invitation to participate in the inauguration of that state's pro-abortion governor. Abortion, the Bishop said, is a "grave moral evil" and I fully agree as do most Latinos in America. I then read another article regarding the struggle against the culture of death in the form of homosexual "marriage" which is the sanctioning of a moral outrage and is an effort to undermine the very fabric of the American culture. I read an article from Florida where that state has been forced by a court to begin conducting such unions. Finally, I read that most of the new congress is Christian and many are also Catholic. In the next segment I read an important article from the Texas Tribune which chronicles the activities of the Tea party agitators and how the seek to overtake the Republican leadership in Austin and Washington DC. I also comment how the GOP seeks to placate these radicals who bring with them the white supremacist goals of the Tanton Network and don't care if they alienate the Latino vote. the article talks about Louie Gohmert's effort to unseat John Boehner and other efforts to undermine John Cornyn proving my points. Then, in the last segment I discuss more action from Jeb Bush in that he has formed a new PAC that will promote a run for the Presidency. I discuss the dynamics of that and point out that Bush is the only candidate who actually has Latino issues and Latinos in mind when he runs. The very things that make me like him also make the Tea party types hate him and call him the destruction of the Republican Party.

    LatinoTalk Texas 2014, 0044 Texas: Epicenter of the coming Immigration Debate

    in Politics

    LatinoTalk Texas is America's only daily independent political analysis from the Latino perspective.  On today's show, I discuss political analysis on the actions of the nation's leading VENDIDO, Rafael "Ted" Cruz, and how his bullying tactics and most ardent anti-immigration efforts are the polar opposite of Jeb Bush who both favors immigration reform and public school reform. I read articles about both and add my analysis about them and note that Cruz, along with Mike Lee of Utah and Rand Paul of Kentucky, were all elected with a harsh enforcement only anti-immigration perspective and I submit that agenda is actually anti-Latino in its motivation is also very divisive and polarizing. On the other hand, Jeb Bush, former Florida Governor and originally from Texas is the polar opposite but also Republican. He is for immigration reform and public school reform, both topics important and favored by Latinos. Bush has won larger percentages of Latino voters in the past buth can he, as a Republican, win back all those Latinos and more driven away from the party by bullies like Rafael Ted Cruz, the Vendido? I also notice that the Democrats who also do not favor immigration reform but rather remain quiet on the topic and allow the the deeply divided GOP to self destruct. Their strategy will be to wait and see and rely upon the fact that they have had the Latino vote for decades and assume the GOP will mess up like Romney in the past and drive away more and more Latino voters in the next major election. I propose that while Arizona was ground zero for the immigration debate in the years past that Texas and what it does under Abbott and Patrick will become the new epicenter of the immigration debate in America especially since Cruz and Bush and Paul are all from Texas. Except that Cruz, the Vendido, is actually from Canada!
