    by Gina Cassini | Top Right NewsMexican-born comedian Paul Rodriguez stunned the CNN panel on illegal immigration when he advocated for DEPORTING illegal aliens who have flooded the border in recent months. Anchor Don Lemon embarrassed himself by suggesting that  legal immigrants (meaning Hispanics) like Rodriguez can’t possibly be against illegal immigration. Wow, he really did go there. Rodriguez would have none of it, even taking on a priest who was advocating for mass amnesty. Way to go, Paul! WATCH:
  • Paul Rodriguez Blasts Eva Longoria, Rosie Perez for 'Mean-Spirited' Attacks

    10/21/2012 1:28:54 AM PDT · by Mozilla · 14 replies ^ | October 19, 2012 | By Elizabeth Llorente
    Comedian Paul Rodriguez is not joking. The man who made his mark in Hollywood finding humor in just about everything is – in a deadly serious way -- hitting back at fellow Latino celebrities Eva Longoria and Rosie Perez for their recent biting jabs at Mitt Romney. "When it gets personal, like they did, it goes below the belt,” he said. Rodriguez is featured in a new Latino-targeted ad for Romney, whom he is supporting after what he says is disappointment over President Obama. Rodriguez says he’d been a lifelong Democrat and voted for Obama in 2008. Longoria drew fire...

    As FNC's Sean Hannity devoted his show Hannity on Thursday evening to the plight of California farmers who are suffering unemployment because the federal government is withholding water from their crops in favor of saving endangered fish, Hannity began the show, specially titled "The Valley That Hope Forgot," by interviewing comedian and former Democrat Paul Rodriguez, chairman of the California Latino Water Coalition. Rodriguez, who last year supported Barack Obama but famously turned GOP after Democrats refused to help him and other farmers obtain water for their crops, made a plea for help to President Obama on Hannity's show: Mr....

    Fresno Bee ^ | 09/27/10
    Paul Rodriguez, a comedian and political activist with strong ties to the Latino community, endorsed Meg Whitman's gubernatorial bid today. Rodriguez, whose political activity is centered in the Central Valley, chairs the California Latino Water Coalition, a group closely aligned with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger that was active during last year's water policy debates. The endorsement comes one day after a poll conducted for the Los Angeles Times and the University of Southern California showed Democratic nominee Jerry Brown leading Whitman among Latinos by 19 points. Rodriguez called Whitman an "independent thinking candidate who is committed to what we care about...

Zeranski Working for the common good is noble, but naïve support of nice-sounding causes can have its drawbacks, as actor and comedian Paul Rodriguez learned the hard way: In recent months, actor and comedian Paul Rodriguez has made known his defection from the Democratic party (sic) because of the party's lack of interest in helping drought-stricken farmers like himself in California who have had water denied to them by court order under the Endangered Species Act to save an endangered fish, the delta smelt.

    In recent months, actor and comedian Paul Rodriguez has made known his defection from the Democratic party because of the party's lack of interest in helping drought-stricken farmers like himself in California who have had water denied to them by court order under the Endangered Species Act to save an endangered fish, the delta smelt. As he addressed the 2009 Annual California Republican Assembly Convention in May, Rodriguez complained that the fundraising support he has given to environmental groups in the past has come back to hurt him and his family: "I always saw myself as an environmentalist. ...

    LISTEN ONLINE AT 1:05pm Eastern Peter Paul makes his first appearance on radio since a trial date was set in the case of Paul v Clinton. Of course, you have not been informed in the mainstream media that defendant Bill and material witness Hillary are soon to be deposed. It is almost as if it never happened. I spoke to Wolf Blitzer's producer today. She didn't even know Bill Clinton was going to trial. This is just amazing. Chelsea is on the witness list. We are curious to see whether there is a perjury gene. Among the Hollywood elite...

    My fellow Freepers: I need your help! As many of you already know, I ran for Congress in New York’s 12th CD in 2004. As part of the experience, I became one of the principal subjects of a documentary being filmed on the Republican National Convention being held in the city that year. As a result, I had a camera follow me around during my campaigning in Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan, to the convention at Madison Square Garden, to various meetings and events of our NY Young Republican Club, to my uncle’s house in Staten Island, and even to my...

    Political strategist James Carville believes the Democratic Party "has a disease" that must be rectified – and soon – if the party has a chance of gaining back the White House or the Congress.In an exclusive interview with NewsMax, Carville is touting his latest book, co-authored by CNN's Paul Begala, entitled "Take It Back: Our Party, Our Country, Our Future." Both are savvy strategists who helped Bill Clinton win his come-from-behind victory that brought him from Little Rock to the White House in 1992. Later the pair were architects of Clinton's successful 1996 re-election. Today, they have changed roles from...

    The fallout over the now-retracted Newsweekstory about American GIs desecrating the Koran continues to spread amid opportunities lost to put some badly needed issues into context with respect to the Muslim world, how the Bush administration has responded and how the press manages to mess things up. As someone who is no stranger to controversial stories and political firestorms, I have enormous sympathy for Michael Isikoff, the lead reporteronthe Newsweek story. As a former editor I sympathize with the top editorial brass at the weekly newsmagazine. That said, I do have to wonder what was in their minds when assembling...

    I decided that rather than giving my own gloss on this piece, I'd just throw upon the forum to comments from freepers who have read it and want to debate its realtive merit. Personally, as someone who has seen these "demonstrations" up close, I have to agree that they are both counterproductive and idiotic. I loathe John Kerry, but I almost feel sorry for him, given the inepitude and stupidity of the contingent that is representing his candidacy at the Republican National Convention, here in NYC. Though his take on the possible actions of the NYPD is grossly inaccurate and...

Rodriguez Hillary Clinton is flying high within the Democratic Party as a marquee star that many hope will launch a presidential run in 2008 or 2012 or join up as a vice presidential contender. But previously unknown federal documents outlining potentially serious election law violations could spell trouble for the junior senator from New York and some high-fliers in the Democratic Party. At the same time, according to legal and federal law enforcement sources who have spoken to Insight on condition of anonymity, the failure to pursue...

    PAUL RODRIGUEZ CHALLENGES REP. NYDIA VELAZQUEZ FOR A SPOT IN THE GOP-LED CONGRESS Republican Paul Rodriguez says if New Yorkers want to be heard in a GOP-led Congress, they need to elect Republicans. That’s one reason the president of the New York City Young Republican Club is running against the incumbent Democrat, Rep. Nydia Velazquez, in Brooklyn’s 12th district this fall. “As long as Democrats are the only ones representing New York City, New Yorkers are not going to have a voice in Congress,” Mr. Rodriguez said. “New Yorkers need someone in the majority to get a better chance to...
