    Politicians are scrambling to gain favor with the ethnic group du jour: Hispanic voters. Sadly, both Democrats and Republicans are engaging in the worst kind of identity politics in an attempt to pander to this growing voting bloc. This tactic was invented by Democrats, so it’s only natural they would have an advantage. But history has shown that blind loyalty to a party is the road to ruin. As Hispanics gain political favor, the black vote is losing its shine. There was a time when Democrats pandered rhetorically to win the black vote to the tune of 90 percent. But...
  • Hispanic leaders say Republican Party must condemn Trump

    AP ^ | 7-3-2015 | Steve Peoples
    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Hispanic leaders are warning of harm to Republican White House hopes unless the party's presidential contenders do more to condemn Donald Trump, a businessman turned presidential candidate who's refusing to apologize for calling Mexican immigrants rapists and drug dealers. Trump's comments, delivered in his announcement speech last month, have haunted the GOP for much of the last two weeks and dominated Spanish-language media. It's bad timing for a Republican Party that has invested significantly in Hispanic outreach in recent years, given the surging influence of the minority vote. Yet several Republican candidates have avoided the issue altogether,...

    A West St. Paul man is accused of beating his young children and forcing two of them to take shots with him until they were drunk. Officers were called at 11:56 p.m. Friday, May 29, after a woman reported a domestic assault. The woman said she is married to 28-year-old Oscar Oswaldo Cruz of West St. Paul and that they have been together for five years. They have a 1-year-old and 4-year-old together, and she has a 6-year-old and 9-year-old from a previous relationship. All of them live together in West St. Paul. The woman said Cruz called her at...

    American Thinker ^ | 05/11/2015 | Rick Moran
    This interview by Mark Halperin with Ted Cruz is a shocking example of liberal double standards. Cruz, a Cuban American, was targeted by Halperin for being an "inauthentic" Hispanic - I guess because he's a conservative Republican. But the insulting, demeaning questions by Halperin asking Cruz to "prove" his genuineness elicited a ringing denunciation from Rueben Navarette: Watching Mark Halperin of Bloomberg Politics interview Cruz recently, I wasn't just uncomfortable. I was actually nauseated. As a journalist, I felt embarrassed for Halperin. As a Hispanic, I felt like I was watching a college fraternity have fun with racial stereotypes,...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Chicago is the most segregated city in the United States, while also being one of the most diverse, according to a new analysis of U.S. Census Data. How can that be possible? Because “diversity” and “segregation” are two different things, when you look at them from a city-wide level and then the neighborhood level, writes Nate Silver, the founder and editor of the Five Thirty Eight blog. “Chicago deserves its reputation as a segregated city,” Silver writes. “But it is also an extremely diverse city. And the difference between those terms — which are often misused and...

    With the announcement of Ted Cruz's candidacy for the GOP presidential nomination and his speech at the convocation of the ultra-conservative Liberty University, the country finds itself jilted to the right on the ideological spectrum. Ted Cruz is quite the curious ideological torchbearer precisely because he is Latino. The general assumption in politics is that growing Hispanic Latino participation in politics will only mean an ideological shift to the left. This makes Ted Cruz' candidacy a welcome reminder that Latino candidates won't, for good or bad, necessarily stray from traditional American politics any time soon. The son of Cuban immigrants...

    The Economist ^ | March 16, 2015
    AMERICA is a country built by immigration, but nothing in its history compares to the rise in its Hispanic population. Changes to immigration law in the 1960s triggered a decades-long surge in arrivals, taking the Hispanic population from just 7m in 1970 to 57m today, a number that is set to double by mid-century. At that point one in four Americans will be of Latino descent. In relation to the population of the day, there have been proportionally larger surges in the past, notably involving European migrations in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Two factors make the rise of...

    Libertarianism isnÂ’t confined to caucasians anymore. The Pew Research Center recently released a study on who in America describes themselves as libertarian while being able to accurately identify what the label actually means. Of the total demographic, 12 percent of respondents who identified as libertarian were white, unsurprisingly the largest demographic population. However, Hispanics self-identified as libertarian at almost the same rate, 11 percent. By comparison, only three percent of blacks fell into the same category (other demographics were not included in the final results). Libertarians also tend to be young; Millennials are the largest group of libertarians, with the...

    Speaking to the National Council of La Raza Tuesday afternoon, First Lady Michelle Obama shared her deep love of Chicago soul food with the Hispanic activists, but warned Hispanic parents that they could be putting their kids in danger by feeding them too much. The First Lady noted that changes in the modern family life were affecting Hispanic families in America. “Sadly all these changes and how we live and eat are having a devastating effect on our children’s health,” she said. “Right now nearly 40 percent Hispanic children in this country are overweight or obese – nearly 50 percent...

    Apparently, “Justice for Trayvon” includes threatening to kill a Hispanic guy who was found not guilty of murder, for the express reason that he was found not guilty of murder. ABC News: George Zimmerman immediately went back into hiding after being acquitted of murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, his parents told Barbara Walters in an exclusive interview with ABC News, adding that they haven’t seen him since he left the courthouse. The Zimmermans said that because of “an enormous amount of death threats,” they, too, have remained in hiding and still don’t feel safe enough to return...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Remember Senator Graham, Lindsey Graham? I forget the exact words. We played the sound bite yesterday.  But he basically said -- correct me if I'm wrong, but he essentially said -- that we have to do this because Hispanics hate us and we've gotta show them that we don't hate them.  It's a paraphrase, but his motivation was that. It was on one of the Sunday shows.  His declared motivation for this was the fact that Hispanics hate us. They think we're racists and bigots who don't like them. We hate them, don't want them here. They don't...

    Marco Rubio has repeatedly claimed he "wants more" from the Amnesty Bill now moving through Congress. Yes, folks, it's an amnesty bill. Let's cut the crap and call it what it is, because only through calling something what it is can we debate it. "Legalization" of those who are here illegally today is amnesty. I don't care whether it leads to citizenship now or later, the fact of the matter is that it rewards criminal activity by allowing those who stole from Americans and their resources to keep what they stole and remain here in America. There is no restitution....
  • Yeiner Perez, BART's Naked Acrobat, Facing Deportation

    There are so many unanswered questions surrounding the May 10 incident in which 24-year-old Yeiner Perez stripped naked and attacked commuters at the 16th and Mission BART Station. Among them: Why was this man subsequently released from police custody and back into the world? According to BART Deputy Police Chief Ben Fairow, Perez was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor battery; he had a psych evaluation and then he was turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement -- which is now in the process of trying to deport Perez back to his native country. ICE officials would not reveal which country...

    There were two big shocks for me on election night 2012: 1) Obama beat Romney. I had concluded that 2012 would look a lot like 2004, i.e. a 50-49 victory with about 290 Electoral votes. I did not subscribe to the landslide (i.e. Dick Morris) but did see a narrow Romney victory! 2) All of the talk about the "hispano" vote. I had looked at anecdotal evidence and did not see a "hispano" wave on election day. So I was surprised with all of the conventional wisdom that "hispanos" had reelected Obama. It turns out that "hispanos" did not really...
