    CLIFFSIDE PARK, N.J. — A 25-second video clip recorded inside a classroom at Cliffside Park High School is being shared on social media and it has started a debate. “…men and women are fighting. They are not fighting for your right to speak Spanish. They are fighting for your right to speak American,” a teacher can be heard saying to her class. Students in Cliffside Park, a diverse community with a large number of Spanish-speaking students, immediately reacted to the comment. One even walked out. "You're being racist," that student can be heard saying on the video. "I know how...

    HEREFORD — On Sunday, Oct. 1, at 1:30 p.m, Friends of the Huachuca Mountains will introduce a little-known Spanish outpost along the San Pedro River. Perrie Barnes will present information about Presidio de Terrenate de Santa Cruz, a Spanish fort established in 1775 and abandoned in 1780, high on the bluffs above the San Pedro River. The site is a monument to three cultures: Spanish, Apache, and Sobiapuri — each the embodiment of romance and legend. For safety reasons occupancy in Carr House is limited to 49 people. In the past, the audiences for some popular programs have exceeded that...

    Baseball's popularity in Latin America has swelled the number of Spanish-speaking players to nearly 30 percent, MLB statistics show. That's a far cry from the post-World War II era when only 1 percent of players primarily spoke Spanish, according to the Society for American Baseball Research. By the late 1990s, the language barrier had become such a problem that MLB started offering classes in English as a second language in 1997, with the teams' covering the costs. Those classes are ongoing.
  • Sheriff’s Office trails Santa Rosa police in recruiting, training Spanish-speaking deputies

    Sheriff’s Deputy Jose Acevedo was making rounds in a homeless encampment in mid-May just north of the Santa Rosa city limits when he rousted a man from a tent. After the man dressed, unzipped the door and stepped out, he was clearly alarmed by the presence of gun-toting officers. He answered a few of Acevedo’s questions in broken English, so the deputy switched to Spanish. While the man could still have been arrested for camping on private property, the fear in his face subsided with the opportunity to speak his native language. “Being able to talk to people in their...

    WASHINGTON — The Trump White House no habla español. 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...

    Treasure hunters have apparently found the 500-year-old remains of a naval expedition led by a colonizer who could have changed Florida's history, making it French-speaking at least for a while. The big question is if the shipwreck is that of "La Trinite," the 32-gun flagship of a fleet led by Jean Ribault, a French navigator who tried to establish a Protestant colony in the southeast US under orders from King Charles IX. They probably are, say authorities in Florida, the French government and independent archeologists. And if they in fact are, this is an unparalleled find, said John de Bry,...
  • California Set To Let Public Schools Teach Primarily In Spanish

    Daily Caller ^ | 11/6/2016
    California isn’t even close to a swing state in the 2016 presidential election, but that doesn’t mean nothing is at stake for voters in the nation’s largest state. After Tuesday’s vote, hundreds of thousands of California schoolchildren may start attending classes primarily en español, thanks to a voter referendum that would repeal the requirement that schools teach primarily in English. California’s Proposition 58 would repeal Proposition 227, a measure that easily passed nearly two decades ago, in 1998. Proposition 227 required all public schools in the state teach “overwhelmingly” in English, with limited-English proficiency (LEP) students transitioning to fully English...

    Muchx latinx limpian sus carx con Kleenex. Huh? What was that? Well, it is a new attempt by the ultra politically correct to purge the Spanish language of any hint of gender based words which would include almost all its nouns and adjectives. Because the new words sound so much like a variation of "Kleenex" I call this new PC language the Kleenex language aka idiomx Kleenex. If you think this is some wild exaggeration then check out the MTV Unbound video below at the 2:10 mark of Kat Lazo asserting with Stalinist insistence that you MUST use "latinx" in...

    If you ever get discouraged about your ability to effect change in a world where one person may not appear to count for much, consider the story of James Oglethorpe. The Georgia Colony of Britain was established by King George to settle the land between the southern border of South Carolina and Spanish Florida "for the settling of the poor persons of London." There were three goals in establishing the colony: to give the deserving poor a chance, to bring trade and wealth to the Crown and to defend the Carolinas from the Spanish. King George named Oglethorpe, the third...

    Spanish-language radio stations in the Austin area are spewing a lot of inflammatory rhetoric against the U.S. and Trump and playing songs that are very derogatory against those who oppose illegal immigration. It is worse than I have ever heard it before and it amounts to treason. Such would NEVER be allowed in Mexico and would lead to the arrest of the entire station staff and the business would be shut down.

    GOP presidential contenders Sens. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio continued their ongoing feud over immigration during Saturday night’s debate, but as the vocal South Carolina audience got involved, the pair let the insults fly. Cruz said Rubio “supports citizenship for 12 million people here illegally. In addition to that, Marco went on Univision in Spanish and said he would not rescind President Obama’s illegal executive amnesty on his first day in office,” Cruz said. “I have promised to rescind every single executive action, including that one.” Rubio wasn’t having any of that. “Well first of all,” the Florida senator replied,...

    s a big one in movieland, but according to one shuttered theater operator in Houston, it could have been even bigger. "Today, the movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in wide release in the United States," reported Viva Cinema to a federal judge on Friday. "The opening is widely expected to break every attendance record in history. But if you are one of over 200,000 Houstonians who understand Spanish but not English, you will be out of luck. You won’t be able to see Star Wars in Houston in Spanish — either dubbed or with subtitles — and there...

    During a brief, little-noticed speech in May, Rep. Mick Mulvaney implored Republican presidential contenders and their supporters to stop tailoring their rhetoric to satisfy true believers and instead prioritize expanding the conservative tent. (SNIP) This concern was clearly influential in his decision to endorse Paul. Comparing the Kentucky senator with rival Republican contender Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, Mulvaney had this to say in an interview with the Associated Press: "Ted is not bringing anybody new into the party. Rand is."

    As a visitor to the United States, Pope Francis faces a minor challenge: His English isn’t so great. Over the course of the trip, he’ll give 18 speeches, and only four of them will be in English; he’ll mostly use his native language, Spanish, to give homilies and addresses. But at Wednesday’s mass in Washington, D.C., at which Francis will canonize Father Junipero Serra, he’ll add another linguistic twist. The main prayers of the service, along with the celebration of the Eucharist—the part of the service when people take communion—will be in Latin. Latin! This is an exclamation-mark-worthy fact for...
