  • California Parents Outraged After Children in Middle School Attend LGBT Fair

    The Daily Signal ^ | March 18, 2019 | Tony Perkins
    “You did what?!” Parents across Santa Ana couldn’t believe it. In one house after another, the answer to “How was school today?” was nothing like they expected. Moms and dads listened in disbelief as their middle schoolers talked about going to an “LGBT Fair” that no one bothered to ask their permission for. There were even people in drag, their 11-year-olds said, giving makeup lessons—right there in school. Townhall’s Kira Davis listened as one mom fumed about not knowing about the fair until after it happened. There wasn’t even an opportunity to opt out, she complained at last Tuesday’s school...

    Five million Central American residents want to migrate into the United States, according to Gallup survey published right after the midterm elections. The caravans of economic migrants moving northwards to the U.S. border “actually represent a relatively small fragment of a much larger group of people in their own region — and around the world — who say they would like to move to the U.S. if they could,” said Gallup. The five million number is one-in-three adults in Central America, the survey firm said. But average birth rate and family size in Central America are roughly twice as large...
  • Latinos are waking up to the duplicity of the Democrats

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | 25 Oct 2018 | Ruben Naverette Jr
    As a Never Trumper, I didn’t get it. So, I interviewed some Latinos for Trump and I got an earful. Many of them saw themselves not as Latinos but as Americans, and so they weren’t hung up on Trump’s anti-Latino screeds. They didn’t like or trust Clinton, appreciated Trump’s frankness, wanted a strong leader, and thought he was right about a lot of issues, including trade and immigration. Yes, immigration. What most non-Latinos don’t grasp is that Latinos are ambivalent about illegal immigration. They have a front-row seat not just to the pain of deportations, but also to how many...
  • AIDS Activists: 'Fear of Trump Policies' May Cause HIV Rates to Rise Among Latinos

    An HIV/AIDS group, whose board of advisers includes doctors from some of the most prestigious medical institutions in the country, says that "fear of Trump policies" may be a factor in the rising rate of HIV in Latino homosexual men. HIV is the virus that causes AIDS; 68% of new HIV infections in the United States occur in homosexual and bisexual men. "The Body, The Complete HIV/AIDS Resource" is a service of Remedy Health Media in New York City, and it states that part of its mission is to "demystify HIV/AIDS and its treatment" and "use the Web to lower...

    The Department of Justice announced charges against 25 individuals on Friday who committed fraud using Puerto Rican identities in an effort to gain government benefits and in some cases even vote. 22 of the 25 charged were illegal aliens, many with records of drug dealing, violent crimes, and some previously deported. Imposters regularly use birth certificates and social security cards stolen or copied from Puerto Ricans to pose as American citizens in order to receive Medicare, evade arrest, and take advantage of welfare benefits such as EBT cards and food stamps. In a sting operation known as, “Operation Double Trouble”...

    A major protest is reportedly scheduled to take place on Sept. 22 at President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida to mark the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Maria. According to CBS News, the Latino Victory Project (LVP) and Power 4 Puerto Rico (P4P) are launching a seven-figure campaign to register displaced Puerto Rican voters ahead of midterm elections. They are also organizing major demonstrations at the president’s Florida estate and at Trump Tower in New York as part of the initiative. After Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico last year, the Trump administration faced immense criticism for its handling of recovery efforts...

    There are no precise figures on how many Latino Muslims live in the Chicago area, where the population is about 30 percent Latino. But, according to various estimates, the 130 mosques in the city and suburbs are the spiritual home to a small but growing group of converts — Latino Muslims. Some converts from devout Catholic families say they sometimes are faced with skepticism and ignorance from their own relatives: “Oh, what are you an Arab now?” “Why did you join a black religion?” “Did you join ISIS?” “Take that thing off your head.”

    Future Female Leader ^ | Camille Castro
    I truly believe that California is one of the most beautiful places that God ever created. Living here and simultaneously being involved in conservative politics certainly has its struggles – especially when you are a direct contradiction to the classic “rich, white male” Republican stereotype. Although conservatives often are subjected to a lot of criticism from the Left, sometimes it feels like us minority conservatives are scrutinized for our political opinions to a greater extent. I am a Latina conservative. Here are some of the struggles I’ve faced while living in one of the most Left-leaning states in the country.
  • Nolte: Media Fail — Trump’s Approval Rating with Hispanics Jumps 10 Points

    Breitbart ^ | June 28,2018 | John Nolte
    In the heart of the media’s hoax-narrative about President Trump’s separation of illegal alien families at the border, Trump’s approval ratings with Hispanics jumped ten points, according to the latest Harvard CAPS/Harris poll. The “hoax” in the establishment media’s narrative is, of course, the phony outrage over the phony pretense that Trump’s separation policies are any different from those of former President Obama. (They are not.) The media fabricated this narrative out of whole cloth as a way to blot out the fallout over the FBI’s devastating inspector general’s report and the congressional hearings that followed. Nevertheless, this poll, which...
  • 'Go home' chants at Jim Acosta weren't racist

    The Washington Examiner ^ | June 26, 2018 | Emily Jashinsky
    Jim Acosta, a Washington-based CNN reporter, visited South Carolina to cover President Trump's rally on Monday night. Accordingly, Trump supporters chanted, "Go home, Jim!" at the correspondent, who's become a favorite target of the president's base (a status he clearly relishes to some extent). The chant for Acosta to "go home" was described in a Buzzfeed report on the rally as "a taunt that sounded especially menacing when aimed at a reporter with a Hispanic surname and a father who fled Fidel Castro’s Cuba." Put in less tactful language, the contention is that it was racist. It wasn't — it...

    Even amid a nationwide surge in MS-13 slayings, the 2017 killing stood out. Female victims are nothing new for MS-13, which is infamous in Central America for making young women choose between rape and execution. But in a gang as chauvinistic as it is fearsome, female killers are almost unheard of... Unlike their counterparts in Central America, some MS-13 cliques in the United States now allow female members, said Michael Prado, assistant special agent in charge of the Washington office of Homeland Security Investigations, a branch of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. "In that regard they are somewhat progressive," he said....

    At the City College of New York in the late 1930s, my father, an Orthodox Jew, wrote his senior class thesis on anti-Semitism in America. He delineated common realities of the era, such as Jews’ admission to law firms, country clubs, and colleges being denied or restricted, and various other manifestations of popular and institutional anti-Semitism.Yet he taught his two sons — my older brother and me — to believe that we, as Americans, were the luckiest Jews in Jewish history. With the obvious exception of Jews living in Israel, he was right. I can state this with some authority,...

    A controversy is brewing at a coffee shop in Oakland, where police officer are not welcome. The business, called Hasta Muerte Coffee, will not serve officers in uniform and turned away an officer a few weeks ago. The shop is an employee-owned co-op. Workers at Hasta Muerte did not respond to requests for comment on the policy to refuse service to police officers. But on the shop’s Instagram account, there's a photo posted with text that reads in Spanish: "Talk to your neighbors, not the police." The post continues about an exchange with a uniformed police officer on Feb. 16,...

    Saying she should be “deeply ashamed of herself,” the head of the National Hispanic Media Coalition has called on renowned acting coach Lesly Kahn to meet with him to discuss an audio file that surfaced yesterday in which she can be heard telling a non-Hispanic student that she would have a better chance of landing an agent and acting gigs if she pretends to be Latina. Kahn, who has apologized, went so far as to suggest that the young actress change her name to Rosa Ramirez and to get headshots to further advance the deception. On the tape, Kahn told...

    GRAPEVINE, Texas — Prominent Latino evangelical leader the Rev. Gabriel Salguero told a gathering of Christian college administrators this week that they are facing a "Daniel and Esther" moment as Latino millennials, overall, are becoming less religious the more they assimilate to American culture. "The longer Latinos are in the United States and the more Americanized they become, the more secularized they become," Salguero, a natural born American born to Puerto Rican parents, explained. "The fastest growing group among millenials is the nones — the n-o-n-e-s." Salguero, founder of the National Latino Evangelical Coalition and the leader of Calvario City...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said the Republican-led Congress should offer a path to citizenship for DREAMers now and pass a bill that deals with border security and “chain migration later” in exchange for granting “amnesty” to all undocumented immigrants. Rather than waiting until Congress can agree on some sort of comprehensive immigration package, conservatives in Congress have argued that any deal granting legal status to “Dreamers,” called so in reference to the DREAM Act, should be tied to additional border security measures, such as funding for the border wall and legislative language that prevents “chain migration,” or family reunification, in...

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) has threatened to vote against the tax bill, putting the legislation in danger of being delayed past Christmas. Rubio has told Senate leaders that he will vote against the bill unless the child tax credit is made more generous to help lower-income workers who pay payroll taxes and not regular income taxes. “Sen. Rubio has consistently communicated to the Senate tax negotiators that his vote on final passage would depend on whether the refundability of the Child Tax Credit was increased in a meaningful way,” said a spokesperson for Rubio. If Rubio votes against the bill,...
