    Latin Post ^ | 7-22-2014 | Rebecca S. Myles
    California voters will have a chance in the November elections to vote on a ballot measure asking them if Congress should amend the U.S. Constitution to overturn Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. The Governor of California signed into law Senate Bill 1272 on July 16 -- the Overturn Citizens United Act -- to put the advisory question on the November 2014 ballot. The group behind the initiative is Money Out Voters In, who were supported by Common Cause. Common Cause is a nonpartisan, grassroots organization dedicated to accountable government in the public interest. "This is a great day for...

The crowd, led by Trayvon Martin’s parents, carried banners and chanted, “What do we want?... Justice. What do we want?… Justice.” According to CBS2 Los Angeles, the rally was organized by the Trayvon Martin Foundation, which states on its website that its purpose is to “create awareness of how violent crime impacts the families of the victims and to provide support and advocacy for those families in response...

    The promise of potential foster parents earning a tax free income–gratis US taxpayers–of a staggering $72,000.00 for taking in an Unaccompanied Alien Child (UAC) is surfacing on web links. A website is running a video taken in Concord, NC of apparent illegal, non-English speaking adult males shopping at Walmart.

    We had about a hundred people present at our anti-illegal alien protest in Sacramento today. We had people representing Oath Keepers, Overpasses for America, Free Republic and other groups, including a contingent of volunteers from the Bolinas Border Patrol. There was only one counter protester that I'm aware of and in the end she gave in and took up an American flag and a "Secure the Borders" sign. I overheard her say, "OMG, I've always been a flaming liberal and now I'm a member of the tea party!" But she was also an admitted lunatic and possibly an escapee from...

Pavlik was supposedly witness to his father, the chair of his local Soviet, giving aid to enemies of the people. The boy turned his own father in to Stalinist authorities, the story went. Enraged by the betrayal, Pavlik was killed by his own family and was posthumously dubbed a martyr for socialist values. Though the tale was later proven to have been...

    Cities throughout California will have to impose mandatory restrictions on outdoor watering under an emergency state rule approved Tuesday. Saying that it was time to increase conservation in the midst of one of the worst droughts in decades, the State Water Resources Control Board adopted drought regulations that give local agencies the authority to fine those who waste water up to $500 a day. Many Southern California cities, including Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and Long Beach, already have mandatory restrictions in place. But most communities across the state are still relying on voluntary conservation, and Californians in general have fallen...

Occasionally, Louisiana has too much water (flooding) and Texas too little. The key number in all of this is that Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas is at about 400-500 feet above sea level. That means an aquaduct system could be built such there could be four to five stations that raise the water 100 feet or more. Louisiana has a number of river systems (besides the Mississippi...

    The terms “husband” and “wife” have been deleted from California’s marriage law under a bill signed into law Monday by Gov. Jerry Brown. The terms will be replaced with “spouse” to accommodate same-sex marriage, which became legal in the state last year after the Supreme Court struck down a voter-approved ban on it. SB1306, the bill signed Monday by Brown, takes effect Jan. 1 and reflects the legality of gay marriage after a decade of litigation. The law also removes limits on recognizing same-sex marriages performed out of state.

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)The Obama administration is facing fresh criticism for its handling of the immigration crisis from two voices at the center of the debate. Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, and Mayor Alan Long of Murrieta, California - the small town that rose up in protest after federal officials bused illegal immigrants to a facility there - both criticized the administration for failing to fix a broken system and address what they called a foreseeable problem. "With all due respect to the administration, they're one step behind. They should have seen this coming a long time ago," Cuellar, a red-state Democrat, told CNN's...

    Murrieta, Calif. Mayor Alan Long says his city, which made headlines this week when protestors blocked busloads of illegal migrants being transferred to a local facility, is paying the price for a very ill-planned U.S. immigration policy. "What I'm telling you right now, if those buses were to arrive here tomorrow, and enter the Border facility, you would see what Murrieta is known for, and that is a caring, compassionate community," Long told CNN "State of the Union" host Candy Crowley Sunday. But that does not mean Long and the community don't have concerns about the immigrants that are being...

    The Law: Residents of city proud to be called Reagan Country rose up last week to halt busloads of illegal immigrants being dumped into their neighorhoods, showing why they may have started a grassfire national movement. To get into the town hall meeting at California's Murietta Mesa High School, you had to work your way through 200 angry protesters. Many of them were in green and white Mexican soccer jerseys and bandanas and waved Mexican flags, at least one with "Viva Mexico" stamped on it. "Ci-ti-zen-ship! Ci-ti-zen-ship!" shouted one young woman, pumping her flag along as the crowd's rage sizzled....
