    State Sen. Ron Calderon accepted about $88,000 in bribes from an undercover FBI agent posing as a film studio owner and a Southern California hospital executive during a wide-ranging probe into his conduct as a legislator, according to a 124-page affidavit published online Wednesday by cable news network Al Jazeera America. No charges have been filed against Calderon, a Democrat from Montebello. His attorney, Mark Geragos, did not return calls Wednesday. The federal affidavit, filed with the court under seal as the FBI sought a search warrant for Calderon’s office, alleges that he worked with interest groups in a pay-to-play...
  • If You Think Islamist Jihadists Are Bad for America, Look Inside the Latino Movement

    Inviting the Latino movement into your political party is like inviting the Jihadists in...its like picking up a live grenade!! If you look inside the Latino movement, you will find a fire-brand of anti-American and anti-white venom. It is their intent to take over this country for themselves. Check out the National Council of La Raza and key among the secondary organizations is the radical racist group Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, or Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan (MEChA), one of the most anti-American groups in the country, which has permeated U.S. campuses since the 1960s, and continues its push...

    The American Thinker ^ | August 3, 2012 | Tom Trancredo
    [SNIP] ....Based on my limited interactions and after reading more about [San Antonio Mayor Julian] Castro, it is clear that he is superficially very different from the older Latino leaders but very similar in other ways. The most prominent Hispanic mayor in America is Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. Before Castro was born, Villaraigosa was at UCLA leading the openly racist, secessionist, and anti-American group MEChA. After engaging in protests to try to get the ChicanoStudies Department to give money to an openly communist group, he dropped out of UCLA and attended the unaccredited People's School of Law. He took...

    U.S. Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Alpine) disagrees with the Navy's decision to name a cargo ship under construction in San Diego for California farm labor leader Cesar Chavez. The decision, announced Tuesday, "appear[s] to be more about making a political statement than upholding the Navy's history and tradition," Hunter said in press release....

    While the Phoenix Public Library broadcast last night’s historic ‘Together We Thrive’ event, several members of Chicanos Unidos Arizona were bussed in from Phoenix to Tuscan for the event and here are the reports: Aldemar Suarez: “Last night’s event was historic. The unity was amazing, until Jan Brewer took the stage. Then, there were people booing. But when Barack Obama spoke, the audience listened. He is a true American hero."

    My apologies if this was posted before. This will make your blood boil. Anyone see this story in the mainstream media? The no good, never gave a damn thing to America, all they've ever done is take from this country trouble makers start their racist behavior at about the 2:00 mark. It's comical to a point. From the Youtube description: (Video) "A member of the group La Raza argues with and attacks one of the attendees of Gene Green's Townhall meeting on Tuesday, August 18. He became violent and Houston Police took him to jail. The LaRaza members continued to...
  • Report from Palestinian - Reconquista Meeting

    Location 2100 Maple Los Angeles, CA INTERESTING POINTS: 1. Interesting that this group has the recourses to rent a permanent facility. (even if it is in downtown) 2. Note the mural there is a man holding a Palestinian flag, leading a group of Hispanic people. 3. This facility just opened this month. Downtown Los Angeles is unbelievably dirty. Trash everywhere and just dirt. Very few light posts so it is dark and creepy. The meeting was supposed to start at 6:00 but at 7;15 a gang looking crowd was developing and since I was alone, I thought it best to...
  • "Nonpartisan" La Raza Council Endorses Obama

    Judicial Watch ^ | July 14, '08
    Although the nation's largest Latino advocacy organization is a nonprofit that must remain nonpartisan because it gets millions of U.S. federal grant dollars, the group's president helped lead a Barack Obama pep rally during an annual conference. The extremist Mexican group National Council of La Raza clearly endorses Obama, which is why La Raza President Janet Marguia stood by as Los Angeles' renowned Chicano Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa praised Obama during the group's annual convention in San Diego. Villaraigosa assured the crowd that Obama is LATINOS' BEST HOPE for reforming the nation's immigration policies. If that's not an endorsement, then what...
  • I Want Your Truck ("In what field of work would someone with a bachelor's in Chicano Studies land?")

    Dear Mexican: I was going through a local state college's academic program the other day and found that they offer a bachelor's degree in Chicano Studies. My question is in what field of work would someone with a bachelor's in Chicano Studies land? Here are a few jobs I came up with: working at a lowrider or tattoo shop. Designing Virgin de Guadalupe T-shirts. Make Loc's shades. Work for Nike in their Cortez shoe department. Design a Web page like Mapquest, but only to show popular cruising routes in the city.

    Stingray: a blog for salty Christians ^ | April 9, 2006 | Michael McCullough
    Today was the day of the big immigration reform protest here in Dallas. The official estimates are that the crowd numbered between 350,000 and 400,000. The protest was against proposed immigration restrictions being proposed in Washington and to support legalizing what the New York Times calls "undocumented workers." Anytime we read a story in any newspaper now, we have to wonder whether a reporter was paid to make the subject look good or bad.But I digress.I watched some of the protests on television at my parents' house, and then watched a bit more here at home on the internet. It was...

    Editor's note: The names in this story have been changed, but everything else is, unfortunately, true.I've seen too many lives ruined by illegal immigration--the lives of illegal immigrants who work crappy jobs, suffer without insurance, sleep in apartments that would shock Jacob Riis, survive in a shadow society with little hope of escaping and drop out of college just to hear their employers and neighbors rail against Mexicans. And I've seen the crosses and monuments along the jagged metal fence that separates Mexico from the United States, crosses and monuments dedicated to the hundreds of migrants who die each year...

    Can You Help America? Are you willing to give five minutes or more of your time to think about a solution to a very costly problem that exists in every State in the Union? If you listen to Rush Limbaugh on TV or on his radio show, you will hear him discuss how dumb and ineffective Democrats can be. He has been saying that the Democrats are only good at whining about problems, not at fixing problems. Rush says the Republicans are the only party that actually fixes problems. Do you believe this? is overflowing with Republicans isn't it?...

    Editor: In the Sanchez family, I have 78 first cousins. In my mother's family, I have over three dozen. With the exception of two, in my mother's family, the letters to the editor of Paul E. Padilla of Torrington and Bill Padilla of Cheyenne very much exemplify the political attitudes of the Sanchez and Gallegoes clan.Most of my relatives and I cannot understand the self-serving, politically correct, welfare polition of those who call themselves "Chicano." It is refreshing to read the letters of Mr. Puebla and Mr. Padilla. Is is wonderful to know that I am not the only politically...
