First, it's not in the United States. Yanga, on Mexico's Gulf Coast, Known as the Primer Libertador de America or “first liberator of the Americas,” is a sleepy pueblito founded by its namesake, Gaspar Yanga.

    Yanga an enslaved African who taking the role of spiritual and military leader, led a rebellion against his Spanish colonial slavers in the late 16th century and fought off attempts to retake the settlement.

    Gaspar Yanga led one of colonial Mexico’s first successful slave uprisings and would go on to establish one of the Americas earliest free black settlements. Gaspar structured the agricultural community in an ordered capacity, allowing its growth and occupation of various locations.

    Mariposa Magazine; Daughter of Mexican Immigrant Emily Hahn Inspires All

    in Motivation

    Emily Hahn is the daughter of Mexican immigrants, a wife, the mother of four adult children, a grandmother of four grandchildren, a retired AT&T Sales Executive, and founder and publisher of Mariposa Magazine.

    Emily created Mariposa Magazine because she understands the struggles and hardships that many of you face. As a child she had to learn a new language and culture; she grew up in a very dysfunctional home; experienced abandonment; divorce; raised four kids; and through a great deal of hard work, Emily was able to rise to the top in a very competitive and stressful career. None of it was easy, but through it all she learned a great deal.

    Mariposa Magazine is a bilingual publication and it is the only magazine targeting Hispanic women devoted to informing and encouraging Latinas in their efforts to build a better life and community.

    So that’s what the magazine is about – Latina success stories, reflections about life, plus a bunch of other stuff that will inform, entertain, inspire, or just plain crack you up!

    Emily believes God is very real and feels this is a terrific country. She stands on the conviction that our determination, focus, and faith make dreams come true.

    K12NN: Tony Diaz (Librotraficante) & 9th Circuit Ct on Mexican American Studies

    in Politics Progressive

    If you can't banish people outright, then you can try to erase them from students' minds. That's exactly what happened in Tucson Unified School District in Arizona, when conservatives ipassed an anti-immigrant racial profiling law, SB1070 that in effect targeted Latinos. At the same time, right-wing activists succeeded in passing a law banning the teeaching of Mexican American Studies, saying that a highly successful TUSD program that taught Chicano/Latiino history and culture to all students in the largely Hispanic district was instead harmful and divisive. The law, HB 2281, bans instruction that encourages "ethnic solidarity" among other things. Mind you, to begin with the ethnic studies courses were part of a federal court order to address historic and systemic racism in Arizona's education system.

    The outrage over free speech rights of teachers and students is what prompted writer and teacher Tony Diaz to "smuggle" books by Latino authors out of his home state of Texas and into Arizona. He has been reporting on and organizing the efforts of free speech activists, ethnic studies activists, and students and teachers fighting for a relevant curriculum ever since.

    TUSD high school student Maya Arce is a plaintiff who filed in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to overtun this Arizona law on grounds that it's unconstitutional. On January 12, 2015, she will testify and urge the Ninth Circuit to protect her First Amendment rights and the rights of other Arizona students and overturn this ignorant, bigoted, and narrow-minded law.

    Background, go here.

    More on Tony Diaz here and Librotraficante here.

    Monday Madness and the Mexican Tea Party!

    in Pop Culture

    California Assemblyman Tim Donnaly joins Joe to discuss the Mexican President's tea party with Govenor Moon Beam. Gov Brown thinks its OK for him to breal bread with El Presidente while our marine rots in his prison.

    Andrea Nelson, from the Clover Agency, joins Joe to discuss recent news events that you probably won't hear anywhere else. Tune in, you'll be surprised at some of the weird news stories and what passes for news nowadays!

    Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?

    There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.

    Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.

    But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!

    If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you! 

    It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!

    Mexican Cartels, ISIS, Pandemic Diseases and UN - How Does It All Tie In with US

    in Christianity

    Jason Pillow has a warning and report to share about the immigration situation at the Mexican border, as well as the serious threat of diseases at pandamic levels in the United States.  He has documentation that proves that the M13 and cartels from Mexico that are pouring over the southern border are tied with the Muslim brotherhood (ISIS, Al Qaeda et al).  These groups are going unchecked at the borders.  According to a four-star general (who believes his life is in danger) has said that 300,000 people per day are coming through into the United States, and expects that number could go as high as one million.

    Many of the immigrants have diseases such as scabies, denge and medical resistant tuberculosis.  In the event of a pandemic (which is most likely, given the stats), the UN would then have a justified purpose for having a presence in America.  There is just far too much information brother Pillow has to share than can be put here.  There is a real threat of a pneumonic plague in Colorado.  Reports have poured in that a UN presence has already been reported in KY, TN (East and middle), GA, FL, OH, CO and TX.

    Please join us, listen to the information, then take it to the LORD in prayer.
