    The Washington Post's Right Turn ^ | June 30, 2015 | Jennifer Rubin, Queen of the CINOs
    In 2012, then-Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) took a winnable Senate race and turned it into a debacle for the whole party. His comments on rape were front and center at the Democratic National Convention. One news cycle after another was devoted to his ignorant remarks. He lived up to the cartoon portrait of a clueless misogynist and made the party once again seem like the party of rich, old white guys who cannot relate to modern America. In the 2016 election, Donald Trump appears on the scene popping off about immigrants and spewing nasty rhetoric. It was enough to cause...

    Jeb Bush’s son, George P. Bush, has joined his dad in an arduous effort: Trying to get the Latino vote. Fox News Latino reports that Bush, the Texas land commissioner, spoke at a Mexican restaurant in Nevada on Wednesday, where he told a crowd of around 40 people why the Latino vote is of grave importance. “The Hispanic agenda is the American agenda, it’s an aspirational community that I happen to be a part of,” Bush, whose mother is a Mexican immigrant, said. “We want better schools, a brighter economic tomorrow, a strong national defense, it’s a patriotic community.”

    Donald Trump brought his in-your-face presidential campaign to Chicago audience on Monday, declaring that if is he is elected, he would make America “rich,” stop illegal immigration and “knock out” federal health-care reform that the U.S. Supreme Court last week ruled the law of the land. And even as NBC became the latest network to sever its ties to Trump after he characterized Mexican immigrants as rapists and criminals, Trump insisted he had nothing to apologize for, saying his remarks were “100 percent correct.”(continued)

    Donald Trump’s not worried about hearing ‘you’re fired’ — and he’s not about to backtrack on his beliefs. Right after NBC cut all ties with him, the presidential candidate was already in a press conference, and revealed that even though NBC doesn’t agree, he still stands by the controversial remarks on Mexican immigrants. Following being dropped by NBC on June 29, Donald Trump, 69, revealed that he was not going to backtrack and that NBC was actually just mad that he was running for president. The network announced that they were ending their entire business relationship with Donald Trump, dropping...

  • No Coverage at the Wires as Univision Exposes Wider Scope, Sickening Carnage of 'Fast

    10/02/2012 5:40:45 PM PDT · by chessplayer · 6 replies
    As of 2 PM ET, various searches at the national web site of the Associated Press, aka the Administration's Press (on "furious"; on "Univision"), Reuters ("furious"; "fast and furious"; "univision"), and United Press International ("furious"; "Univision") indicate that the three wire services have given no coverage to reports from Univision exposing the wider geographic scope and far more fatal fallout of the deliberately untrackable guns-to-cartels operation known as Fast and Furious. I wonder how the leading U.S. Spanish network's broadcasters and audience feel about getting the same treatment the establishment press gives center-right blogs?

    When Mexican authorities took Juarez drug cartel carnage king Jose Antonio Acosta Hernandez — better known as “El Diego” — into custody, he had weapons from Operation Fast and Furious on his person, the English-language transcript of the Spanish-language television network Univision’s special investigation into the scandal shows. “According to investigations, ‘El Diego’ forms the link between this massacre and Fast and Furious,” an anchor read on air in Spanish Sunday evening, referring to two different mass killings drug cartel operatives used Fast and Furious weapons to conduct as Univision reported. “When he [El Diego] was captured in Chihuahua in...

    The Spanish language television news network Univision unleashed a bombshell investigative report on Operation Fast and Furious Sunday evening, finding that in January 2010 drug cartel hit men slaughtered students with weapons the United States government allowed to flow to them across the Mexican border. “On January 30, 2010, a commando of at least 20 hit men parked themselves outside a birthday party of high school and college students in Villas de Salvarcar, Ciudad Juarez,” according to a version of the Univision report in English, on the ABC News website. “Near midnight, the assassins, later identified as hired guns for...

    Fifty seven previously unidentified firearms linked to Operation Fast and Furious were recovered in sites associated with murders, kidnappings, and at least two gruesome massacres. Univision News obtained the list of Fast and Furious weapons and a list containing almost 60,000 recovered firearms compiled by Mexico's Secretaría de la Defensa Nacional (SEDENA). A cross-reference of the serial numbers of the guns resulted in 96 full matches (several partial matches were discarded). The 96 firearms linked to Operation Fast and Furious all turned up at crime scenes in Mexico from 2009 to 2010. In a report published on July 26, Congress...

    Univision has ended its partnership with the Miss Universe Organization after Donald Trump, the organization’s part owner, made what Univision has deemed to be incendiary remarks against Mexican immigrants when he announced his campaign for presidency earlier this month. “Today, the entertainment division of Univision Communications Inc. announced that it is ending the Company’s business relationship with the Miss Universe Organization, which is part-owned by Donald J. Trump, based on his recent, insulting remarks about Mexican immigrants,” the company said. “At Univision, we see first-hand the work ethic, love for family, strong religious values and the important role Mexican immigrants...

    Donald Trump has a vision for Univision ... it involves a courtroom, a jury and a bank account that will be bled dry.

The Donald says Univision had no legal right to back out of the deal Thursday, based on his comments about Mexico and Mexicans, saying many of them who come here are drug dealers and rapists. Trump tells us, the contract, which was signed in January of this...

    Earlier this month at a UFO conference in Mexico City two photographs claimed to have been found in a trunk in Sedona and depicting an alien body that crashed in Roswell in 1947 were revealed. The images, which have created a buzz among UFO believers, depict a small human-shaped figure with an enlarged head—apparently in a display case with an unreadable placard, oddly enough. Low-resolution images had been circulating for some time, and several skeptical researchers (including myself here on Discovery News, I modestly note) identified the “Roswell alien” as a mummified child.

    Recently, in Mexico, the candidates for mayor of the Mexican city of Guadalajara included a famous Mexican clown named Lagrimita. And in the United States, now that Donald Trump has filed the necessary paperwork with the Federal Election Commission, the ranks of Republican presidential hopefuls expanded to include an anti-Mexican clown. “The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems,” Trump said to supporters at Trump Tower where the real estate mogul declared his bid for the GOP nomination. “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best…They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re...

    MEXICO CITY (AP) -- The U.S. Embassy in Mexico says a truck carrying visas was hijacked in northern Mexico and the visas stolen. The embassy says in a statement Wednesday that the theft occurred on June 7 "in northern Mexico," without specifying where. The truck was making a trip from the United States to U.S. Consulates in the cities of Monterrey and Guadalajara. Some approved border crossing cards also were stolen. An electronic alert has been issued so that the stolen cards cannot be used to cross the border.
