UNREAL … Univision TV Executive Compares Donald Trump to Racist Killer Dylann Roof (UPDATE: The Donald Responds)(Trump Sues Univision for Breaking Contract)
AND THESE ARE THE FOLKS THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO HOST A PRESIDENTIAL FORUM?
The President of Programming and Content at Univision compared GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump to racist murderer Dylann Roff today on Instagram. REALLY? Could you imagine what the outrage would be if Obama was compared to a murderer? It wasn’t long before the pics were taken down, but the damage had been done. How irresponsible could one be who claims to be in the media?
How do you say media bias in Spanish?
“I think he should be ashamed of himself. He deleted it. And the lawyers are going to have a field day. As you know they broke a contract… In my opinion a tremendous amount of pressure was put on, frankly by Mexico, by the leaders of Mexico put on Univision because they didn’t like what I was saying about trade… Frankly, a tremendous amount of people are coming in. We have some horrible people coming in, not just from Mexico but from all over. And they are killers and they are people we don’t want in this country… Everybody knows what I’m saying is true, Mexico knows what I’m saying is true.”
UPDATE I: Further attacks and backlash against The Donald … Chilean actor Cristian de la Fuente resigned as host of the Miss USA pageant, Calls Trump a Clown.
The Chilean actor who was slated to host the Miss USA pageant pulled out even before Univision pulled the plug, saying Donald Trump was “ignorant” and a “clown.”
Cristian de la Fuente, who stars in “Devious Maids,” went nuts on Trump for calling Mexicans drug dealers and rapists.
Cristian is not alone in his disdain. Roselyn Sanchez, his “Devious Maids” co-star, also pulled out and Univision officially pulled the plug Thursday morning.
Univision is the biggest Spanish-language broadcaster in the United States, so its decision is a blow to the Miss Universe Organization, a joint venture of Trump and Comcast’s NBCUniversal division.
Last week, in his speech announcing a run for president, Trump deplored immigrants from Mexico who “have lots of problems” and are “bringing those problems to us.”
“They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists,” he said, adding, “and some, I assume, are good people.”
UPDATE II: Trump Sues Univision.
Donald Trump intends to sue Univision for breach of contract and defamation after the media company announced it would renege on a five-year contract for broadcast rights to the Miss Universe and Miss USA pageants, his lawyer said Thursday.
The announcement comes hours after Trump told the On Media blog that Univision was defaulting on an “iron-clad” $13.5 million contract, which he said it had no right to terminate

Donald Trump Announces He is Running for President in 2016 … ‘Our Country Needs a Truly Great Leader’ (VIDEO)
THE DONALD IS IN …
Yesterday, Donald Trump entered the already crowded Republican field for the 2016 Presidential race.The Donald’s announcement was very different from many of the other GOP candidates looking to become the next President of the United States. Why you ask? Because he did not mince words and went after the failings of Barack Obama, Democrats and all establishment politicians, including those in the Republican party. Trump stated that he “will be the greatest jobs president that God has ever created,” as well as going after China and Mexico. Trump said, “I’ll bring back our jobs from China, from Mexico, from Japan, from so many places .?.?. and I’ll bring back our money.”
Donald Trump announced Tuesday that he’s running for president and vowed to be America’s Mr. Fix It — tackling unemployment, illegal immigration and terrorism.
“I will be the greatest jobs president that God has ever created,” the billionaire declared during a 45-minute red-meat speech at Trump Tower, his company’s Fifth Avenue headquarters.
DONALD TRUMP ANNOUNCEMENT
Like him or hate him, The Donald is a different breed of candidate. Obviously we see where the liberal MSM stands and many so-called establishment, conservative pundits. Trump has a couple of things going for him; one, he is a leader. Two, he is not afraid of reading from the non-PC script and three, he is not a politician who is beholden to special interests and calls the establishment out as idiots and rips them for their ridiculous, moronic policies. Some want to call Trump a non-serious candidate, calling him a clown. I will admit he is not my number one choice, but what he brings to the political conversation and resonates with the people is the mood of many Americans that they are sick and tired of politicians, Democrat and Republican alike, who just care about their own power and either could care less about America and its citizens or are just too stupid to know better and do anything good to make change.
TRUMP: Well, you need somebody, because politicians are all talk, no action. Nothing’s gonna get done. They will not bring us — believe me — to the promised land. They will not.
As an example, I’ve been on the circuit making speeches, and I hear my fellow Republicans. And they’re wonderful people. I like them. They all want me to support them. They don’t know how to bring it about. They come up to my office. I’m meeting with three of them in the next week. And they don’t know — “Are you running? Are you not running? Could we have your support? What do we do? How do we do it?”
I like them. And I hear their speeches. And they don’t talk jobs and they don’t talk China. When was the last time you heard China is killing us? They’re devaluing their currency to a level that you wouldn’t believe. It makes it impossible for our companies to compete, impossible. They’re killing us.
But you don’t hear that from anybody else. You don’t hear it from anybody else. And I watch the speeches.
Trump rips the establishment politicians for being in the pocket of lobbyists, donors, and by the special interests, rather then working for “We the People”.
TRUMP: So I’ve watched the politicians. I’ve dealt with them all my life. If you can’t make a good deal with a politician, then there’s something wrong with you. You’re certainly not very good. And that’s what we have representing us. They will never make America great again. They don’t even have a chance. They’re controlled fully — they’re controlled fully by the lobbyists, by the donors, and by the special interests, fully.
Yes, they control them. Hey, I have lobbyists. I have to tell you. I have lobbyists that can produce anything for me. They’re great. But you know what? it won’t happen. It won’t happen. Because we have to stop doing things for some people, but for this country, it’s destroying our country. We have to stop, and it has to stop now.
The Donald shreds the stupid politicians who are destroying America.
I’ll bring back our jobs from China, from Mexico, from Japan, from so many places. I’ll bring back our jobs, and I’ll bring back our money.
Right now, think of this: We owe China $1.3 trillion. We owe Japan more than that. So they come in, they take our jobs, they take our money, and then they loan us back the money, and we pay them in interest, and then the dollar goes up so their deal’s even better.
How stupid are our leaders? How stupid are these politicians to allow this to happen? How stupid are they?
The SCOTUS Reject Free Speech Appeal over Cinco de Mayo School Dispute Filed by 3 Students at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, CA
The Supreme Court of Mexico rejected Cinco de Mayo school dispute appeal … T0o bad it was the Supreme Court of the United States … What happened to the Country I grew up in?
Reuters reports that the SCOTUS rejected the on Monday appeal and left in tact a lower courts ruling that school officials in California did not violate the free speech rights of students by demanding they remove T-shirts bearing images of the United States flag at an event celebrating the Mexican holiday of Cinco de Mayo. REALLY? So a school can tell American students in America to remove their American flag shirts because it would cause an incident at an American school. Honestly, what the “F” happened to this once great nation? Justice isn’t just blind at the SCOTUS, it also appears to be stupid.
Just curious, who thinks that the SCOTUS would have decided 180 degrees different if the school officials had asked the Mexican students to take off their shirts with the Mexican flag on it so not to insight a riot? Or if it were black students who were made to take off shirts that might cause an incident? Or if Gay-Lesbian students were forced to take off their rainbow shirts for fear of causing an incident? I think we all know the answer.
The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday left intact an appeals court ruling that school officials in California did not violate the free speech rights of students by demanding they remove T-shirts bearing images of the U.S. flag at an event celebrating the Mexican holiday of Cinco de Mayo.
The court declined to hear an appeal filed by three students at Live Oak High School in the town of Morgan Hill, south of San Francisco. School staff at the May 5, 2010, event told several students their clothing could cause an incident. Two chose to leave for home after refusing to turn their shirts inside out.
The school had been experiencing gang-related tensions and racially charged altercations between white and Hispanic students at the time. School officials said they feared the imposition of American patriotic imagery by some students at an event where other students were celebrating their pride in their Mexican heritage would incite fights between the two groups.
What part that this is America doesn’t the Supreme Court quite not get? Only in America is it considered a bad thing to wear something patriotic. This is just pathetic. Unlike in Mexico, citizens are supposed to have rights in the United States. Supreme Court, that means all citizens, including white Americans.
Just so everyone understands, Cinca de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day, it celebrates the defeat of the French army during the Battle of Puebla in Mexico on May 5, 1862. Mexico’s Independence Day is on Dieciséis de Septiembre, but that doesn’t quite have the same ring does it? However let’s get real, today Cinco de Mayo has become more of an American holiday than a Mexican one giving folks the excuse to suck down some Margaritas and some cervezas like Negra Modelo, Dos Equis, Tecate or Corona.
Mexican Mayor Jose Luis Abarca and his Wife Maria de los Angeles Pineda Arrested in Case of Missing 43 Students
Iguala Mayor Jose Luis Abarca and his wife, Maria de los Angeles Pineda were arrested Tuesday morning at a house they had rented in Mexico City’s Iztapalapa neighborhood. The couple is believed to have ordered an attack that killed six people and left 43 students missing in September. The question still remains following the arrest, where are the 43 students who haven’t been seen being taken away by officers after the deadly attack by police in Iguala on September 26?
Federal police seized Jose Luis Abarca and his wife, Maria de los Angeles Pineda, in a raid before dawn in Iztapalapa, a working-class neighborhood of the capital. It was a steep fall from their reign of wealth and power as the mayor and first lady of Iguala, a town in southern Guerrero state where the students from a teachers’ college went missing Sept. 26, allegedly at the hands of police and a drug cartel.
A Mexican mayor characterized as a “probable mastermind” in the mass abduction of 43 students has been taken into custody as authorities have tracked down a top target who eluded them for weeks — even if they still haven’t managed to locate the missing.
Iguala Mayor Jose Luis Abarca and his wife, Maria de los Angeles Pineda — dubbed “the imperial couple” by local media for how they presided over their southern Mexican city — were detained early Tuesday morning at a house they had rented in Mexico City’s Iztapalapa neighborhood. They did not resist arrest, authorities said.
The couple had been staying in a house that appeared to be abandoned, and investigators first got suspicious when they saw a woman repeatedly entering and leaving the building, Mexican Attorney General Jesús Murillo Karam told reporters. That woman, Noemí Berumen Rodríguez, was arrested alongside the mayor and his wife. Authorities accused her of concealing the couple.
Their capture, which Mexican Federal Police spokesman Jose Ramon Salinas reported on his Twitter account, signals a major milestone in the high-profile case.
FINALLY, AFTER 214 DAYS IN A MEXICAN JAIL …ANDREW TAHMOORESSI FREED!!!
Judge Victor Octavio Luna Escobedo of the Sixth Federal District Court in Tijuana ordered the immediate release of a U.S. Marine veteran Andrew Tahmooressi, who was being held in a Mexican jail on possession of weapons charges. Tahmooressi had been jailed since March 31, 2014 when he accidentally crossed the US/Mexican border with ammunition and three loaded weapons. The judge ordered his release on humanitarian grounds and dismissed the case on the grounds that were that Tahmooressi was unfit to stand trial because he suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder.

A Mexican federal district judge in Tijuana on Friday ordered the immediate release of a U.S. Marine veteran being held in Baja California on federal weapons charges.
Andrew Tahmooressi, who was on trial for crossing the border with ammunition and three loaded weapons on March 31, returned to the United States Friday night and flew to his family’s home in Florida.
The decision by the Mexican Attorney General’s Office to cease its prosecution of Tahmooressi brings to a close a high-profile case that has resounded far beyond the border.
In the United States, it prompted calls for Tahmooressi’s release from politicians, veterans groups and conservative talk show hosts. But for months there had been an impasse, as Mexican federal prosecutors insisted that the case be resolved through the courts — not through diplomatic or political pressure.
Mexico freed U.S. Marine reservist Sgt. Andrew Paul Tahmooressi, who’d been held in a prison there for seven months.
Tahmooressi boarded a flight for Miami from San Diego.
“It is with an overwhelming and humbling feeling of relief that we confirm that Andrew was released today after spending 214 days in Mexican jail,” relatives said in a statement Friday night.
Tahmooressi family spokesman Jonathan Franks said Friday night in a statement: “The family is overjoyed. They are asking for privacy at this time.”
The court said it found no cause to prosecute Tahmooressi on charges of carrying two firearms used exclusively by the military, possessing cartridges used exclusively by the military and carrying a firearm without a license
The court also recommended he be treated for post-traumatic stress disorder.
“It’s a victory for American veterans,” said former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, who had talked to Mexican officials to urge them to release retired Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi on humanitarian grounds. “It’s a victory for the United States.”
U.S. Rep. Ed Royce, R-Calif., chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said he was “elated” by the news and that his PTSD will be treated by specialists in the United States. He had met with Tahmooressi in jail and talked to Mexico’s Jesus Murillo Karam about the case.
WAPO-ABC News Poll: Obama Hits News Low with 40% Approval Rating … Only 33% Among Independents … Democrats in Serious Trouble
HEY AMERICA, HOW’S THAT HOPEY-CHANGEY STUFF WORKING OUT FOR YA?
According to the most recent WAPO-ABC News poll, Barack Obama has hit an all-time low with an approval rating at 40% and a 51% disapproval. Actually, it is curious as to why it is not even lower. Among Independents, Obama only has a 33% approval. Under Obama’s watch, everything is a colossal disaster. Nothing is going good in the United States or around the world.
The US economy is a floundering mess, illegal immigration, ISIS is on the rise and now we have the October surprise of Ebola in the United States. Barack Obama polls poorly on all major political issues as we are week’s ahead of the November midterm elections and early voting has begun in some states.
Can you say EPIC FAILURE!!!
Heading into the final weeks of the midterm campaign, the political landscape continues to tilt in favor of the Republican Party, with President Obama’s overall approval rating at the lowest level of his presidency and GOP voters signaling greater likelihood than Democrats that they will cast ballots, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
Americans are looking to November and beyond with dissatisfaction about the state of the country and the political leadership in Washington. Two-thirds say the country is seriously off-track. And while more than 6 in 10 say the president lacks a clear plan for governing, …
See all polling data HERE.
The overall job approval rating average is not much better for Obama. According to RCP, only 42.0% approve, while 52.4% disapprove.
Barack Obama and his political party are heading into the midterm elections in trouble. The president’s 40 percent job approval rating in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll is the lowest of his career – and the Democratic Party’s popularity is its weakest in polling back 30 years, with more than half of Americans seeing the party unfavorably for the first time.
The Republican Party is even more unpopular. But benefitting from their supporters’ greater likelihood of voting, GOP candidates nonetheless hold a 50-43 percent lead among likely voters for U.S. House seats in the Nov. 4 election.

US Border Patrol Agent’s Sad But All to Real Response to Truck Driver Travis Pope’s Question on Whether it Matters if He is a US Citizen … “Not Any More, Unfortunately.”
The sad and pathetic reality of US border security under Barack Obama …
Travis Pope, a truck driver who was stopped at an an internal border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, Texas, asked a simple question and sadly got back an answer from the border patrol that pretty much says it all for Barack Obama’s open borders-”illegal” immigration policy. The trucker recorded his conversation with border patrol agent while wearing his Icam glasses. The result was a Youtube viral video. When the trucker was asked whether he was a US citizen, his response was a question back to the border agent, “Yeah, but does it really matter?” The border agent, who did not know he was being recorded said,”Not any more, unfortunately.”
Agent: How are you doing? U.S. Border Patrol. How many people are on board?
Agent: Are you a citizen?
Driver: Yeah, but does it really matter?
Agent: Not any more, unfortunately. Thank you.
VIDEO Hat Tip – MrRocksolid1974
Pope said he doesn’t think the agents at this checkpoints are a waste of time, “because we need border security,” but a “waste of money.” Pope added that he thinks the agent he recently encountered is “an American hero” who is “frustrated that he can’t do his job.”
As for his filming of agents without their knowledge, Pope fired back his own response.
“I really don’t think about that because they got everybody on cameras anyway. They’re government. We have the NSA wiretapping us and watching us … and they’re going to get upset because a citizens do same thing to them? If it’s right for the government, it’s right for me to do it, ain’t it?”
Sean Hannity Blasts President Barack Obama in Blistering Monologue … ‘It’s Time for a Wake-Up Call’ … “It Is Time for You to Get Engaged.”
BARACK OBAMA, ITS TIME TO LEAD, NOT DIVIDE …
Last night Sean Hannity blasted Barack Obama in a blistering monologue begging, asking and demanding that this president ‘WAKE UP” and get engaged in the turmoil in both domestic and foreign policy. Much of which Obama has no one to blame but himself. Although he will try and pass the buck. It is becoming evident that Obama is the “Bystander” in Chief and refuses to step up to the plate and lead. But instead Obama attends fundraisers, plays golf and goes on vacation to Martha’s Vineyard.
Hannity stated that our world is in an alarming state of emergency, between Israel’s ground war into Gaza to protect itself from Hamas, Malaysia flight ML17 blown out of the sky in an unspeakable act killing innocent men, women and children, ISIS on the rise, Al-Qaeda on the move, the Middle East on fire, Russia and Putin flexing its muscles, Obama administration scandals like IRS-gate and Benghazi-gate, and a US domestic policy of out of control national debt and a discouraged work force. Let us not forget the crisis we have on our Southern border caused by Obama’s lack of protecting or borders. Then there is that Obamacare thing.
Hannity said, “It is shocking to see a president of the United States, the free world, with such a lack of urgency and priorities. So I say to the president tonight: It is time for action, it’s time for urgency. It is time for you to get engaged.” Hannity went on to say, “Mr. President for you to stand up. It is time for you to lead. It’s time to skip for once your lavish million dollar Marha’s Vineyard vacation. It’s time for you to put down those golf clubs. I thing 180 rounds of gold is quite enough. It is time for you to lead by example. [...] You need to spend more time in The Oval Office. You need to be in the Situation Room. You may be surprised to learn what has actually happened in the six years since you have become the leader of the free world.”
“It is shocking to see a president of the United States, the free world, with such a lack of urgency and priorities,” Hannity said. “So I say to the president tonight: It is time for action, it’s time for urgency. It is time for you to get engaged.”
Hannity then skewered the president over his handling of domestic matters.
“Mr. President, why don’t you consider the events of these past 24 hours to be a very, very costly and deadly wake up call,” Hannity said. “And while all this was happening yesterday, you spent 40 seconds dealing with the killing of nearly 300 innocent people and for your secretary of state to tell Israel to restrain itself again and again. It’s time for a wakeup call.
Charles Krauthammer on Harry Reid’s Secure Border Comment … “You’ve got to Wonder, Whether He’s really on his Medication or Not.”
Many legal American citizens have the same question …
Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer mocked Democrat Senate Majority Lead Harry Reid yesterday on ‘Special Report’ with regarding to Reid’s comment that the Southern border was secure stating, When you hear Harry Reid saying the border is secure you’ve got to wonder, you know, whether he’s really on his medication or not.”
Well Harry, are you?
CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: When you hear Harry Reid saying the border is secure you’ve got to wonder, you know, whether he’s really on his medication or not. I mean, that is so detached from reality. We just saw at the beginning of the show the report from John Roberts — you get how many we have now? 60,000 — at least — kids who come over. And we’re completely helpless. And it’s the helplessness that I think is driving the president and the Democrats to accept. What they want is for the Republicans to be the one who would propose the change in the law because it looks so cruel.
MARA LIASSON: They did.
KRAUTHAMMER: And so the Republicans have played their role in this kabuki. The president will reluctantly accept it even though he talked initially about proposing it but then he got heat from his left which said you can’t propose this. So it will work out. But the president has to have this stopped because it contributes to the story, showing all the other elements abroad and at home that his administration is incompetent, out of control and unable to control anything. And with this continuing he really can’t tolerate that, his numbers will not survive and the party will be roundly thrashed in November and that’s why he’ll acquiesce to the change in the law.
