POLITICS: Latino organizations not resting after election
The Riverside Press-Enterprise ^ | November 30, 2012 | David Olson

Posted on 12/01/2012 3:46:26 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

After a Nov. 6 election that saw unprecedented gains in Latino political power, Latino organizations already are organizing voter-registration and citizenship drives aimed at increasing their influence further.

Several groups are preparing to fan out to colleges, high schools and churches in coming months to register new voters.

Citizenship workshops, including one in San Bernardino on Saturday, Dec. 1, aim to turn legal permanent residents into voter-eligible citizens.

“The Latino vote really fulfilled its potential this past election in a way it hadn’t done before,” said Arnulfo De La Cruz, California director for Mi Familia Vota, a six-state voter-registration campaign that has its state headquarters in Riverside. “We can only grow from here.”

Several Inland organizations have long been registering voters and holding citizenship workshops year-round.

But this year saw the arrival of several national and regional Latino organizations to the Inland area to assist and supplement those efforts. And some of those groups are maintaining their Inland presence after the election.

The National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials and the Ya Es Hora! (Now is the Time) citizenship and voter-registration campaign cosponsored Saturday’s workshop San Bernardino’s Librería del Pueblo.

It was at the association’s suggestion that Librería del Pueblo earlier this year held the first citizenship workshops in its 30-year history, said Ramón Vera, director of programs for the nonprofit...

Flexing thier muscles,It’s to be expected. They want to be paid for their vote.

It’s a bidding war. Don’t worry Republicans willbid , thye won’t win, but they will bid.

There aren’t any Patriots in America any more. They have all learned that they can vote themselves money and we are on the downhill slide.

Mexico is pushing north at a furious pace---throwing its "pressure groups" over the border---salivating for reconquista---to takeover the SW--- financing and coaching their fifth column invasion of US borders.

The wailing and whining invaders' propaganda-----"just here for a better life, to do jobs Americanos won't do"---really "gets" bleeding heart sap-happy liberals.....and vote-crazed US politicians.


AS FREEPER ISABELC INSIGHTFULLY POSTED: "Every illegal alien who is employed in the US has committed one or more of the following crimes: (1) ID Theft, (2) Document Fraud, (3) Social Security Fraud, (4) Employment (I-9 Form) Fraud, (5) Federal Income Tax Evasion, and, (6) Conspiracy to Violate Immigration Laws." When they legalize the ones already here ---- that means a massive influx of extended family (and those who "say" they're family) who then get the right to come over and ride the US gravy train.

HYPHENATE PRICE TAG---the price we are paying so that vote-crazed Obama and other desperate pols can get re/elected.

NOTE Conniving pols bury these programs within other programs making them difficult to find. Americans have been hammered with govt propaganda that it was the Iraq war and the war on terror that is bankrupting the US. Here’s the real reasons:

1. $11 Billion to $22 billion is spent on welfare to illegal aliens each year by state governments.
Verify at:

2. $22 Billion dollars a year is spent on food assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal aliens.
Verify at:

3. $2.5 Billion dollars a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal aliens.
Verify at:

4. $12 Billion dollars a year is spent on primary & secondary education for children here illegally and [usually] cannot speak a word of English.
Verify at:

5. $17 Billion dollars a year is spent for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies (or as Terry Anderson says “JACKPOT” babies!)
Verify at:

6. $3 Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens.
Verify at: %20TRANscriptS/0604/01/ldt.01.HTML

7. 30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal aliens.
Verify at:

8. $90 Billion Dollars a year is spent on illegal aliens for Welfare & socialservices by the American taxpayers.
Verify at:

9. $200 Billion dollars a year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens.
Verify at:

10. In 2006, illegals sent $45 BILLION in remittances to their countries of origin.

11. The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration: Nearly One million sex crimes committed by Illegal Immigrants In The United States.
Verify at: http: //



1. The Earned Income people get back on their taxes that they NEVER paid into in the first place! Illegal aliens, most of which pay zero in net taxes, enjoyed $4.2 billion from the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) last year. That’s more than the annual revenue from the selected oil tax deductions and corporate jet deductions combined!
Verify at:

2. The cost of prosecuting and making SURE the “rights” of illegals are protected by US laws madefor US citizens. In 2009, the U.S. Justice Dept filed nearly 92,000 pro-immigrant-related criminal cases in the federal courts. The record-breaker accounted for more than half of all new federal prosecutions, according to data maintained at Syracuse University.

An official translation by the OAS, shows the Mexican constitution contains many restrictions:

<><> Pursuant to Article 33, “Foreigners may not in any way participate in the political affairs of the country.”

<><> Equal employment rights are denied to immigrants, even legal ones. Article 32: “Mexicans shall have priority over foreigners under equality of circumstances for all classes of concessions and for all employment, positions, or commissions of the Government in which the status of citizenship is not indispensable.”

<><>Jobs for which Mexican citizenship is considered “indispensable” include, pursuant to Article 32, bans on foreigners, immigrants, and even naturalized citizens of Mexico serving as military officers, Mexican-flagged ship and airline crew, and chiefs of seaports and airports.

<><>Article 55 denies immigrants the right to become federal lawmakers. A Mexican congressman or senator must be “a Mexican citizen by birth.”

<><>Article 91 further stipulates that immigrants may never aspire to become cabinet officers as they are required to be Mexican by birth. Article 95 says the same about Supreme Court justices.

<><>In accordance with Article 130, immigrants - even legal ones - may not become members of the clergy, either.

<><>Article 27 states, “Only Mexicans by birth or naturalization and Mexican companies have the right to acquire ownership of lands, waters, and their appurtenances, or to obtain concessions for the exploitation of mines or of waters.”

<><> Article 11 guarantees federal protection against “undesirable aliens resident in the country.” What is more, private individuals are authorized to make citizen’s arrests.

<><>Article 16 states, “In cases of flagrante delicto, any person may arrest the offender and his accomplices, turning them over without delay to the nearest authorities.”

<><>According to Article 33, “the Federal Executive shall have the exclusive power to compel any foreigner whose remaining he may deem inexpedient to abandon the national territory immediately and without the necessity of previous legal action.”

Just like blacks, latinos are only useful idiots to be rolled out each election cycle.

They will get very little in return for their votes.

A Celebration of Racism is more like it

Will the GOP be stupid to dump its base for “Latino” (Hispano-Racist) votes that do not exist?

Maybe I should start the “Germanics” and get out the Germanic-American vote? Gee, MSNBC, Liberal Media would call me a “Racist”

We are fast becoming the Balkans. This has been the goal of the leftists, and their liberal useful idiots have not only run interference for them, they have carried their water for them.

There is no way this is going to end well.

I completely agree. America is dying, and the process simply accelerated on 6 Nov.

In 30 years or so, once they`ve taken the southwest, the mexicans will find resistence in the upper midwest, where the muslims will want to carve out theie chunk of the former America. They`ll probably have to go to war to resolve it. The muslims will give Mexico a tougher fight for land and influence than we ever did.

I don’t understand why people watch this and then never ask why the Republicans aren’t doing the same!

clearly we were out-organized by a big Democratic machine who tracked down every eligible voter in the Nov. 6th elections, with superior information from the census which was grabbed by the White House without a murmur from the Repubs.

OUR PROBLEM IS THE REPUBLICANS. When nothing stands up against this power-grab of course we’re going to lose!

I checked my state’s Republican Party on Wikipedia and they supposedly have a Latino outreach committee which I would bet does nothing at all.

So so so frustrated here. I am going to see my Repub. congressman who lost and ask him about it if i can get him to talk to me.

During the election the conservative radio hosts claimed that Latino voters were conservative but voting democrat. Would it go against the standards of Free Republic to have a Spanish version? Just wondering.

Mexico is financing all of this-—giving orders to their pressure group here-—as more of their loyalists pour over the border.

Mexico is pushing north at a furious pace. They’ve got big BIG plans....not that Obama and vote-crazed Dems give a whit.

NOTE During World War II, Mexico enabled German activity against the US. A supply of high test aviation gas was hidden by German agents in Baja California....a Mexican outpost.

I live in CA, my wife was born in Mexico, works and pays taxes.
Even though she KNOWS that the entitlement system is wrong, she would IMO vote Democrat because all of her family outside of herself has a great need for social programs. She knows she can't support them all constantly and thinks other family members would starve without the dole.

My view is first that it is racist to put Latinos or their interest ahead of Africans, Europeans and others for having the nerve on many cases to break our laws crossing and then expecting to jump to the head of the line to become residents.

Secondly, what ever happened to making sure the residents can pay for themselves and if they can't why not let them lose status? Why should residents or illegals for that matter be allowed on the dole of the USA?

Third, there is no interest in real education for most coming here, my wife is a big exception. Most coming here are not their capable or educated, we are getting poor laborers and so forth, all with expectations of big government handouts.

Lastly, until it all collapses, Latinos and others who are into getting stuff for free will NEVER vote conservative or Republican because they want their stuff. They will overlook gay rights, gay marriage, abortion, wealth distribution or anything else and sell their souls as other Democrats have in exchange for the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ and that is the truth.

If anyone has a plan to be able to go against that problem and change that, by all means let me and everyone else know what that would be.

I am married to a woman originally at 13 from Mexico and you are right. The ones coming here are a people of great financial NEED and our dole and the access we give them to it are why they will vote Democrat until the whole country collapses.

Oh, and they are still brainwashing people in History at colleges regarding Affirmative action and the Great Society BS.
My wife had to do a term paper about both these things and it was all IMO the Democrat view of History.

I showed her the LBJ tapes of Johnson saying “if we give them programs the n!ggers will vote Democrat for 200 years and it shook her, but she overlooked that even though it was from LBJ’s mouth.
I also pointed out Democrats blocked several civil rights bills led by LBJ.

People want in some cases to live with the lie over the truth. SAD IMO.

“NOTE During World War II, Mexico enabled German activity against the US. A supply of high test aviation gas was hidden by German agents in Baja California....a Mexican outpost.”

Another secret hidden by our mediots: Uboats in the Gulf of Mexico.

Also, during WWII, what country was the biggest importer/buyer of Mexican oil? Read and find out!

Not every day has been a day in paradise along the Texas coast. Unknown to many, in the early days of U.S. involvement in World War II, German U-boats clouded Gulf waters with an ominous presence. With over 70 naval and merchant ships falling victim to Germany’s “Gulf fleet,” there was cause for real concern — and for the safety of sailors and even residents of the Texas coast

By Logan Hawkes

It’s hard to imagine as we look out across the sparkling waters of the Gulf on a sunny morning that there has ever been much to fear on our peaceful coast and its surrounding blue waters — other than an occasional shark encounter or a brush with unexpected weather. But it wasn’t always so.

Not long after Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto launched his fateful surprise attack at Pearl Harbor in late 1941, the High German command ordered the 10th U-boat flotilla to begin war time operations in the Gulf of Mexico. The primary objective was to disrupt the vital flow of oil carried by tankers from ports in Texas and Louisiana and to impede the flow of military hardware and supplies to the European front.

The Germans were exceedingly successful in their Gulf campaign sending 56 vessels to the bottom; 39 of these are now believed to be in state or Federal waters off the Texas, Louisiana, and Florida coastline. In fact, naval historians tell us that Germany’s concentrated war effort in the Gulf of Mexico in 1942 and early 1943 represent one of the most celebrated sea campaigns of all time. At least two U-boat Captains earned Germany’s Distinguished Iron Cross for their efforts, and the campaign is credited with effectively disrupting U.S. oil and gas supplies for the first half of the war.

Scary Times in the Texas Valley:

Ask many Valley old timers about the “war days” in South Texas and you’ll get assorted stories and tales, enough to fill a book and far too many to recount here. But unlike many parts of the country, South Texas was a hot bed of conspiracy theories, real and present dangers, and a fear of direct war time threat. Apparently the concerns were not without foundation.

For one, the political climate in neighboring Mexico was extremely volatile. Agents of the German war machine were known to be active throughout Mexico. Nazi Germany was the leading importer of Mexican oil, accounting for just over half the country’s annual production. Italy, another member of the Axis coalition, imported another 25-percent of Mexico’s crude. To counter the measure, oil and gas production in Texas and Louisiana was elevated. Port Isabel, for example, was the site of large oil refinery and a shipping point for oil and gas headed to the war, and as such was considered by many as a possible target for U-boat shelling or even a shore scurry.

While U-boat activity was largely limited to 1942-43, there was at one point no less than a fleet of 20 U-boats that patrolled Gulf waters regularly in search of allied supply ships. To prevent widespread panic, the U.S. War Department decided to keep the lid on the threat, but it wasn’t long before merchant sailors and fishing vessel crews spread the word that not all ships in the Gulf were friendly. The U.S. Army, Navy and Coast Guard were assigned to beaches of Padre Island and the waters surrounding her, watching and listening posts for U-boat activity and possible ground landings on U.S. soil.

So great was the fear of U-boat activity in the Gulf that residents along the lower Texas coast of the time would jokingly remark “there are so many German U-boats in the Gulf, it’s a wonder they don’t torpedo each other.”

The Nazi-Mexico Connection:

In the book “Who Are We, The Challenges to America’s National Identity”, authored by political activist Samuel Huntington, a Harvard professor and former advisor to Lyndon Johnson, we are warned of another major terrorist attack on U.S. soil in the near future under what he terms “Hispanic cover.” Huntington and supporters warn of the dangers presented by the Union Nacional Sinarquista (UNS-National Synarchist Union) in Mexico, an organization created in 1937 by Germany’s Nazi Party, operating through the Spanish Falange. Although vastly diminished in numbers today compared to then, this same organization continues to actively organize in Mexico and in the United States.

Boat Type and American/ally ships sunk:
U-103 IXB One ship sunk.
U-508 IXC Six ships sunk.
U-507 IXC Eight ships sunk.
U-506 IXC Eight ships sunk.
U-106 IXB Five ships sunk.
U-504 IXC No ships sunk.
U-753 VIIC Four ships sunk.
U-67 IXC Eight ships sunk.
U-129 IXC Six ships sunk.
U-134 VIIC No ships sunk.
U-154 IXC One ship sunk.
U-157 IXC No ships sunk.
U-158 IXC Six ships sunk.
U-509 IXC No ships sunk.
U-171 IXC Three ships sunk.
U-571 VIIC Three ships sunk.
U-84 VIIB Five ships sunk.
U-166 IXC Two ships sunk
U-600 VIIC No ships sunk.
U-183 IXC/40 One ship sunk.
U-155 IXC Two ships sunk.
U-527 IXC/40 No ships sunk.
U-518 IXC No ships sunk.
U-193 IXC/40 One ship sunk.

Huntington suggests the Nazi efforts of the `30s and `40s are still alive and well in Latin America and continue to pose a threat as more Hispanic intellectuals and activists are introduced to its Marxist philosophies.

But that’s a story for another time.

As for the U-boats of the Gulf, only one was officially sunk by Allied forces, the U-166, who still sits nearly a mile below the Gulf surface just a few miles from the mouth of the Mississippi river, a few hundred yards away from her last victim, the passenger ship SS Robert E. Lee.

Merchant shipping received the full weight of the U-boat blitz, which gave the Gulf the melancholy distinction of having the most sinkings in May (41 ships, 219,867 gross tons) of any area in any month during the entire war.
The last ship sunk by a U-boat in the Gulf was Dec. 4, 1943. U-193 was patrolling off the southeastern Florida coast when she encountered the brand new tanker “Touchet,” which was carrying 140,000 barrels of oil. At 2:30 a.m., the first of three torpedoes struck the ship.

In early 1943, U.S. Naval ships were assigned convoys of freighters and passenger ships and the threat of U-boats quickly diminished.

Port Isabel's large oil refinery was a shipping point for fuel headed to the war, and was considered a possible target for German U-boat shelling or even a shore scurry.

Wowser---nice bgrnder, Dave---needs to surface everytime sap-happy Obama gets on his knees and puckers up to illegals.

I guess when Texas Gov Perry was honored by Mexico for giveaways to illegals---and when he told nay-saying Rep primary voters we didn't have a heart----he knew n-o-t-h-i-n-g about Texas-Mexico military history (/snix).


BTW, I came upon the Mexican/German connection through published stories about patriots---Hollywood actress Rochelle Hudson and her husband ......they became undercover agents who posed as tourists and discovererd that Mexico was the site of German activity and that a supply of high test aviation gas was hidden by German agents in Baja California....a Mexican outpost.

Sadly, I agree with you. It is amazing how Blacks and Hispanics are so clueless as to the aims of the Democratic Party. They’re run by white elitists who don’t care two cents about their lives and use them as pawns for their acquisition of power. The country is disintegrating before our eyes and that’s just fine with the Democrats.
