    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, 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 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, 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, 0035 Latino issues, Politics and Science news

    in Politics

    LatinoTalk Texas is news, interviews and issues in America from the Latino perspective.  On today's show, I read two news articles from Fox News Latino concerning Latino issues.  One, a San Jose University leader is reported to have uttered disparaging remarks about Latinas.  In another article details about Obama's potential plan for easing his harsh deportation polices.  Later I read an important piece by David Smith about the means by which the Libertarians re-invented themselves and have taken over the Republican Party.  I lament this also and pointed it out a few years ago and also lament how these crypto-libertarians as I call them brought with them the anti-immigration movement which is also an anti-Latino movement and part of a larger population control effort.  I also read some of your comments on my facebook page.  Finally, I read two science pieces.  The ESA has successfully landed a small probe on the surface of a comet which is unprecedented and very exciting.  Lastly I explain the nature of a new commercial appliance you may be seeing in your home in the next few years.  It's called Jibo and its a robot or more like a robotic mobile smart phone.  It talks and listens and follows your movements so it can help you by reading your communications to you and take photos and videos for you and perhaps much more.  Yes, it is really the 21st century!

    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, 0033 Election Analysis

    in Politics

    I urge Republicans NOT to assume their anti-immigration efforts are the reason.  I assert failings of Obama and his feckless foreign and domestic policies have been rebuked.  If Obama puts forward any executive relief there will be NO CIR.  He won't consider "rewarding" Latinos with any relief since Democrats lost big. Susanna Martinez was re-elected Governor of New Mexico and that she is the only Latina elected governor in America.  I'm happy about that but I caution in the past she has done things that supported the anti-Latino agenda in America. Greg Abbott won election as Governor in Texas.  He is the first Catholic Governor in Texas history and his wife will be the first Latina First Lady. All this is good news for Latinos in Texas and America but I worry, deeply, about the anti-Latino Nativist movement in America.  In Texas as they have great influence and will soon begin addressing illegal immigration by violating the rights of Latinos all along the border region.  I read an article about the KKK and the Neo-Nazis having nativist white supremacist rallies in Texas.  I warn these groups are in lock step with the evil white supremacist John Tanton Network that have strong influence at the very highest levels of government and each major political party.  For Latinos to ever have Comprehensive Immigration Reform they must rise up in a Politically Independent Latino Movement to oppose the white supremacist movements in America who seek no only to oppose all forms of immigration but also seek to attack Latinos, their rights, and drive Latinos out of America, state by state.  I am deeply worried about the efforts of Dan Patrick in Texas to promote state level immigration enforcement which will, undoubtedly, result in many Latinos in the border areas suffering the same type of abuses and depredations suffered at the hands of the Rinches during the early 20th century.

    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, 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.

    LatinoTalk Texas 2014, 0028 Culture of Life vs Culture of Death

    in Politics

    LatinoTalk Texas is America's only daily independent political analysis from the Latino perspective! On today's show, a discussion of the nature of the Culture of Death and how it exists in opposition to the Culture of Life which is best represented in the Church.  Using a discussion of the Vatican's recent Synod on the Family and how some news reports about that were deliberately false and misleading was done so for the purpose of undermining the Church and the Culture of Life.  I discuss how the Culture of Death has two approaches toward and in attack of the Culture of Life.  One is political and the other is social.  The Social side is represented in the various efforts to undermine life such as abortion and euthanasia.  They are motivated by the radical environmentalism and the belief that people ARE pollution but that some people, namely themselves are better people and should be allowed to live while others are too stupid and too ugly to live.  They are people like Margaret Sanger, Hitler and John Tanton.  The Political side is lead by socialists and Libertarians.  They seek to rid our governments and society of religious expression.  The Culture of Life; however, expresses that though there are many of us, life is a gift from God and that we are here for a purpose and that because we are clever and work hard we will find solutions to our problems and find ways to cure diseases and feed the hungry. Later in the show, I update the news on Islamic Army, Ukraine, Boko Haram in Nigeria, Houston Mayor Parker and her attempt to push the homosexual agenda in the courts and the protests in Mexican state of Guerrero.
