    A former staffer in the George W. Bush White House has urged his “fellow Latinos” to vote President Trump out of office, saying Republicans "have lost control of the monster they helped create." “I am a Republican,” Abel Guerra wrote in an opinion piece published by The Washington Post on Wednesday. “I worked in the George W. Bush White House. And I say to my fellow Latinos: I’m not asking you to become a Democrat. But I am asking you to vote President Trump out of office.”

    Wednesday, the entire leadership team for Latinos for Trump was suspended from Twitter, according to a press release. “On September 18th, Twitter management suspended the accounts for the entire leadership team of Latinos for Trump organization, who operates under Americanos. As a company that claim’s [sic] its purpose is ‘to serve the public conversation,’ the unjustified suspensions of these accounts is not only contrary to their stated purpose, but also silences the voice of a significant minority group,” the release said.

    President Trump bashed Democratic presidential candidates Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in his first interview with a Spanish-language television network, suggesting both men look tired on the campaign trail. Trump was asked by Telemundo anchor José Díaz-Balart about who he would prefer to face in the 2020 election. Trump declined to speculate, but offered his thoughts on Biden and Sanders, two of the frontrunners in most polls. "Bernie looks like he's had it," Trump said. "Bernie looks crazy, but he always did. But he looks like a tired crazy right now." "Joe Biden, he looks like he's just...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Top Republicans are hunting district-by-district for just the right candidates — women and minorities in many cases — to help them recapture the House six months after a political tidal wave swept Democrats into control of the most diverse majority in history. Among the recruits are a Republican woman in the Oklahoma state Senate and a black political novice from Houston with Iraq combat experience and three Ivy League degrees on his resume. They are part of the GOP drive to gain at least 18 seats in the 2020 elections to win the majority — historically a...

    by Sheri Urban A female Mexican-American Trump supporter was assaulted in a U.S. post office for wearing a MAGA hat by a psychotic androgynous liberal suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome. A female Trump supporter named Paloma took out her phone and began recording after she was insulted by a ‘tolerant liberal’ inside of a post office in San Diego, California on Saturday. Paloma describes herself as an “American loving activist, born in Mexico,” who came to the US legally when she was 10 years old. The liberal became infuriated when (she?) realized she was being recorded and lunged at the Trump...

    On Monday’s Erin Burnett OutFront, CNN’s Miguel Marquez noted that 34% of Latinos approved of Trump in a recent CNN poll. He said, as a puzzled Erin Burnett looked on, that though a majority of Latinos disapprove of Trump, there are plenty who live along the U.S.-Mexico border who support Trump, believe that there is a “national emergency” at the border, and would like to see the size of the border wall “doubled” or “tripled.” Rolando Rodriguez, who lives a mile from the border in McAllen, Texas, said he wants a 2,600-mile border wall that is “longer and taller.” When...

    During Friday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, host Joe Scarborough reacted to President Donald Trump’s plan to declare a national emergency to build a wall at the southern border, saying the president is “playing on racist fears.” According to Scarborough, Trump’s campaign “has always been” about people who are not white taking over the United States.

    Trump would not have to change his policies to capture 40 to 50 percent of the Latino vote (which is quite different from “Latino” spokespeople on television and the Jorge Ramos crowd), as opposed to simply articulating them: 1) The “new” Democratic party not only show signs of a new more insidious anti-Semitism — as we’ve seen from comments by Senator Feinstein, Harris, and Hirono, and the surreal and barbarous statements coming out of Virginia and New York on third-trimester abortion (and near infanticide). But it is now becoming anti-Catholic to a degree not seen in decades in America. Why...

    LITTLETON, Colo. — Pedro Gonzalez has faith in Donald Trump and his party. The 55-year-old Colombian immigrant is a pastor at an evangelical church in suburban Denver. Initially repelled by Trump in 2016, he’s been heartened by the president’s steps to protect religious groups and appoint judges who oppose abortion rights. More important, Gonzalez sees Trump’s presidency as part of a divine plan. “It doesn’t matter what I think,” Gonzalez said of the president. “He was put there.” Though Latino voters are a key part of the Democratic coalition, there is a larger bloc of reliable Republican Latinos than many...

    In this final week before Election Day we will see an endless stream of “Hillary Clinton has a 95% chance of winning,” type polls. Nevertheless, the numbers say otherwise. The recently released Public Policy Institute (PPCI) of California poll of California voters makes this case. These results were predictable. They provided headline readers with the false impression that was intended; and did a very clever job of burying what they didn’t want readers to know. It predictably told us the Democrat gubernatorial candidate was on his way to an easy win. What PPCI worked hard to hide was far more...

    “They say it doesn’t do anything,” said Lugo, 56, a promoter for a footwear chain. “And it doesn’t matter who votes because (politicians) do whatever they want anyway.”Trump rode to his improbable victory in 2016 by winning a troika of Rust Belt states where there are relatively few Latinos. This was supposed to be the election Latinos struck back.Many Democrats presumed that Latinos, who are largely clustered in a handful of states, would be better-positioned to flex their muscles and punish the president for his actions and rhetoric targeting Latino immigrants — most recently when he pledged to send troops...

    Democrats are worried about Latino voters in the midterms, fearing that weak efforts to energize a core element of their base could imperil their bid to win control of Congress in next month's elections. From the Sun Belt battlegrounds of Nevada and Arizona to sprawling turf wars in Texas and Florida, there are signs that the Hispanic vote - which party leaders have long hoped would be the foundation of future electoral success - has yet to flourish in their favor this year.

    Last night, Tucker Carlson broke an explosive story featuring internal Google documents indicating that the company made a "silent donation" – its own term – to the Hillary Clinton campaign by using its information channeling might to mobilize voters it thought would cast ballots for the Democrats' candidate. The move was unsuccessful, but it illustrates the enormous power to shape elections by bringing some information to the voting public while suppressing other information. As Carlson points out, if Russian purchases of a hundred thousand bucks' worth of Facebook ads is supposed to be worrisome, the power of Google, which is...

    When President Trump said a few weeks ago that he wanted to find a way to continue protecting young “dreamers” from deportation, some Republicans touted the possibility of a “Nixon goes to China” moment that could reset the president’s deeply frayed relationship with Latino voters. But ever since, Trump has returned to antagonizing this growing segment of the electorate — including proposing new hard-line immigration measures Sunday — deepening a rift that many in his party fear will do lasting damage to the GOP’s ability to win future elections. Trump’s hostile rhetoric and actions toward Latinos, Republican strategists say, could...

    The Trump White House no habla espańol. Well, un poquito. After a succession of administrations that embraced Spanish-language content, President Donald Trump's White House is all but ignoring Spanish speakers even though he has a robust online presence in English. His administration has yet to offer a Spanish White House website. It has eliminated the position of director of Hispanic media outreach. And its Spanish-language Twitter account is heavy with English text and features sloppy translations. White House press secretary Sean Spicer said in January that the administration had its 'IT folks working overtime' to roll out a new Spanish...

    One of the little-told stories of the 2016 election was Donald Trump’s 28 percent take of the Hispanic vote, besting Mitt Romney’s 2012 showing. We on Team Trump won’t throw parades for winning less than one-third of the Latino vote nationally, but lessened enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton among Hispanics represents a key reason, perhaps the primary reason, she was ultimately uncompetitive in Florida. Why did Latino support for Trump massively outperform expectations? For one thing, millions of Hispanics rejected the relentless mainstream media narrative that Trump is an anti-Mexican racist. In addition, only U.S. citizens can vote, and according to...

    Hispanics, who for more than a decade insisted they were the key to American politics, are now grappling with a life on the outside — stunned that a Republican managed to capture the White House without winning at least a third of their support. Immigrant rights advocates insist that Latinos did turn out in record numbers, and say they voted overwhelmingly for Hillary Clinton, doubting major media exit polls that showed President-elect Donald Trump captured some 29 percent nationally. But that leaves another conundrum: If Republicans can win without Hispanic support, that could sap the negotiating power Latinos have claimed...
