Republicans barred from
California Latino Caucus: assemblyman

Washington Times, by Jessica Chasmar

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 5/23/2014 4:24:56 PM

A Republican assemblyman is accusing the California Latino Legislative Caucus of discrimination after he says he was denied entry because of his party affiliation. “I asked to be a part of the Latino Caucus,” said Rocky Chavez, a Latino Republican representing the 76th district, a local ABCaffiliate reported. “I assumed I was going to be, but I was told that because I was a Republican I would not be part of the caucus.” In fact, state Sen. Ricardo Lara, the president of the Latino Caucus, suggested Mr. Chavez create his own caucus where Republicans would be more welcome. “There was a Hispanic Republican caucus that we

Comments:
I, as a Latino, would never be allowed into one of these "meetings." Like chat rooms that discriminate against conservatives, it doesn´t matter your skin color, ancestry, language skills; only that you follow in lock step with the dRATS party to continue to subvert immigration laws. Oh, and expand government handouts to illegals whether state or federal mandated. Trust me, like blacks, these organizations are racist and they don't care. Their seat at any political table is due only to get their votes.

The Republicans had better wake up and smell the roses as those radical Democrat Caucuses would run every Republican out of California if they could, and once they gain enough political power out of the Southwest.

Some cheap labor Republicans apparently want to support a liberal Democrat amnesty and much expanded future immigration of poor and generally uneducated aliens, that is bound to hand the Democrats tens of millions of new foreign born Democrat voters in the years ahead. More indication that you can´t fix stupid.

Just goes to prove that amnesty will allow the demonrats 20,000,000+ more votes which they desperately need.

Where´s the white caucus? I want equal rights.

United Nations - The Taliban´s reliance on extortion and kidnappings, along with narcotics and illegal mining operations, is transforming it from a group driven by religious ideology into a criminal enterprise hungry for profit, U.N. sanctions monitors said in a new report. (Snip) "In addition to voluntary or forced donations from Afghan businesses outside the country as well as voluntary donations motivated by religious or ideological convictions, the Taliban have established a fairly sophisticated system to generate resources inside the country," the report said.

Washington - Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Friday the deteriorating conditions in Iraq could have "global consequences." (Snip) "That´s a delicate and difficult task for our government because we certainly don´t want to fight their fight," Clinton said. "Because you´d be fighting for a dysfunctional, unrepresentative, authoritarian government and there´s no reason on earth that I know of that we would ever sacrifice a single American life for that." The potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidate said the turmoil in Iraq represented a "recipe for a horrendous conflict."

Washington - As quickly as Boko Haram caught Washington by hashtag storm, the Nigerian terrorists — and their schoolgirl captives — have seemingly vanished from the radar of priorities, even as the al-Qaeda-linked group’s jihadi brothers-in-arms run roughshod across Iraq. One senator this week, though, charged that the administration never wanted the frightening growth of the North African terrorist organization to receive much attention in the first place. (Snip) It’s been nearly two months since the April 15 kidnapping, and former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo grimly warned Thursday that the search for the girls is

A senior U.S. defense official Friday said U.S. officials were seeing signs that Iranian fighters were engaged in Iraq. But it was not immediately clear how many troops were involved. "This is bad," the senior U.S. defense official told Fox News, adding that "there is not much we can do (militarily). We are way behind the curve." The official said people in the U.S. Embassy feel threatened, but it´s too "politically sensitive" to evacuate them right now. Some 150 fighters from the Revolutionary Guards elite Quds force had already been dispatched to Iraq by Tehran, and the division´s powerful commander, Qassem Suleimani, met with Iraqi

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), issued a rare audio message back on January 21 in which he flatly stated his group’s intention to march on Baghdad and move into “direct confrontation” with the United States. “Our last message is to the Americans. Soon we will be in direct confrontation, and the sons of Islam have prepared for such a day,” Baghdadi said. “So watch, for we are with you, watching.” (Snip) Specifically, Baghdadi said: “Our last message is to the Americans.

US President Barack Obama is not considering military action against al-Raqqa, Syria, the self-declared capital of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), a US official tells The Jerusalem Post. "At the moment, the options being considered are focused on Iraq," the official said. "Of course, that could always change." The terrorist militia ravaging the sovereignty of Iraq is headquartered in Syria, where the group gained strength through the strife of the civil war there. The US is now considering military strikes against the group, two years after pulling troops from the country after nine years of war.

Census data: Some Chicago
communities buck murder trends
Sun-Times [Chicago, IL], by Michael Lansu *    Original Article

Chicago Police recorded about 1,335 murders from 2011 through 2013 – a majority in communities where residents have little education and money. While low educational attainment and high levels of poverty are associated with murder rates, some Chicago communities buck the trend. Of Chicago’s 77 communities, Austin has the most residents, and the most people living in poverty. It also had the most murders from 2011 through 2013 with 96. However, just because a community has a higher percentage of residents living in poverty doesn’t necessarily mean it will have a high murder total. The East Side and Logan Square

GOP Sen. Thad Cochran of Mississippi had already commented about Eric Cantor´s stunning primary loss earlier this week. So why did he appear unaware of the outcome when asked about it on Thursday? "I don´t know what you´re talking about," the six-term senator said in an interview with Fox News, when asked about the race. "What happened in Virginia?" A spokesman for Cochran said the senator "had been asked that question repeatedly and answered it repeatedly." "He felt it was time to move on from the subject," Jordan Russell said, implying the senator was being sarcastic. Cochran, who has own tea party insurgency to face

Hundreds of thousands of low-income children would gain access to pre-school education under an agreement struck by legislative leaders in Sacramento this week in a compromise announced Thursday. The proposal, still making its way through the legislature, would provide hundreds of millions of dollars to offer preschool access to 234,000 low-income four-year olds, state Senate President Darrell Steinberg (D) said Thursday. Four-year-olds from low-income families with at least one working parent would be eligible for full-day pre-kindergarten.

Washington - Fiscal hawks are warning that new legislation passed in both chambers of Congress this week in response to the Veteran Affairs scandal could cost taxpayers more than $500 billion over the next decade. A Senate source told FoxNews.com on Friday that lawmakers "passed a bill they didn’t read which led to Congress issuing a blank check with real consequences for the country down the road." The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget rang the alarm bells over the bill on Thursday, releasing a statement saying the Senate version of the bill “violates every principle of good budgeting, and could add substantially to

Sao Paulo - Neymar gave Brazil a winning start to its home World Cup, scoring twice to lead the host nation to an unconvincing 3-1 victory over Croatia in the opening game on Thursday. Brazil had a disastrous start when defender Marcelo found his own net while trying to clear a low cross by Ivica Olic in the 11th minute, but Neymar then showed why the nation´s high hopes are all pinned on him. The 22-year-old forward equalized in the 29th minute, clearing a defender in midfield before making a run toward the edge of the area and firing a

BOSTON — Once fearing he would be viewed as "a loser for life" if he failed to win the presidency, Mitt Romney is trying to re-emerge as a force in Republican politics. Romney has quietly sought kingmaker status in the GOP´s fight for the Senate majority this fall and its quest to retake the White House in 2016. The effort at revival is fueling whispers about a third presidential run. But those closest to Romney suggest he´s more interested in shaping party politics by lending his name and record-breaking fundraising machine to what he considers the next generation of electable conservatives.

Washington, DC – Today, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) issued the following statement regarding the Internal Revenue Service informing the Committee that they have lost Lois Lerner emails from a period of January 2009 – April 2011. Due to a supposed computer crash, the agency only has Lerner emails to and from other IRS employees during this time frame. The IRS claims it cannot produce emails written only to or from Lerner and outside agencies or groups, such as the White House, Treasury, Department of Justice, FEC, or Democrat offices.

Eliana’s report is just stunning — no matter how many times similar “mishaps” have occurred in this administration. The IRS, like other government agencies, has lots of reasons to maintain emails, so I’m curious about whether they will be similarly informing courts, Congress, litigants, FOIA petitioners, and other people and bodies they must periodically make disclosures and reports to that they’ve lost nearly two years’ worth of agency communications? Or was this just one of those highly, highly unusual computer crashes that affects only the email account of Lois Lerner and any executive branch official with whom she happened to

The Attorney General of the United States told a homosexual advocacy group on Tuesday night that the Boy Scouts of America "preserves and perpetuates the worst kind of stereotypes" by refusing to allow homosexuals to serve as Boy Scout troop leaders. "Today, courageous lesbian, gay, and bisexual individuals routinely put their lives on the line as members of America´s armed services," Holder told Lambda Legal Tuesday night. "And if these men and women are fit for military service, then surely they are fit to mentor, to teach, and to serve as role models for the leaders of future generations."

Chelsea Clinton earned an annual salary of $600,000 at NBC News before switching to a month-to-month contract earlier this year, sources with knowledge of the agreement told POLITICO. Clinton, who joined NBC News as a “special correspondent” in November 2011, was up for renewal or non-renewal this year. Instead, the sources said, the network decided to keep her on the payroll on a month-to-month basis so that the two parties could sever ties if Clinton’s mother, Hillary, runs for president. Kamyl Bazbaz, a spokesperson for the 34-year-old Clinton, referred POLITICO to NBC News, which declined to discuss Clinton’s contract. “We don’t comment
