Hispanic Americans vs. Democrat Party

Hispanic Americans to Rally for Marriage at
Democrat National Convention

No Longer Will Votes be Taken for Granted

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WASHINGTON, D. C. - Although sizable majorities of Hispanic voters vote Democrat, they also are some of the strongest supporters of the marriage protection amendment. After two years of a Democratic-controlled Congress which has refused to consider the amendment, Hispanic voters will rally at the Democratic National Convention in Denver to press candidates to stand up for marriage. Key Latino leaders from across the country will join the Alliance for Marriage Foundation to host the event.

"For far too long the votes of Latinos have been taken for granted," said Rev. Sam Rodriguez, Jr., President of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference and Advisory Board Member of the Alliance for Marriage Foundation. "As our numbers grow, our influence is growing, and it is time for leaders of both parties to put protecting marriage and strong family values at the center of their agenda. Candidates like to tout 'family values' on the stump, but then toss our values aside when they get to Washington . We're not going to tolerate that any more."

The event will be held just steps from the convention hall in Denver and will feature leaders of the broad coalition of Americans who favor the marriage protection amendment, but will focus on the Hispanic community in particular. The Alliance for Marriage will begin a public relations campaign, including paid media, to raise awareness of the issue and the event. Final details will be made public in the weeks leading up to the convention.

The event is meant to capitalize on a new phase in the strategy to protect marriage, which is to mobilize the growing influence of Hispanic voters on American politics. And the fact that it will be held in Denver , the site of the Democratic National Convention, signifies how much ground has been lost in a state once renowned for its dedication to values.

Until very recently, the vast majority of Colorado 's elected officials stood up for marriage and strong values. Not anymore. In fact, Colorado is now the political playground of fabulously wealthy radical activists like software-magnate Tim Gill, who seek silently to destroy the rights of Americans through front groups financed by invisible campaign checks.

Gill and his millionaire allies have literally transformed Colorado 's political landscape overnight. Once known as the very heart of America 's pro-marriage and pro-family movement, Colorado is now known as the home front for radical activists who seek to force their radical vision for America upon the entire nation.

This is why mobilizing the influence of the Hispanic vote within both national political parties, but especially the Democrat party, is the only chance of pushing back the forces of Gill and others.

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N. (Person, place or thing) under the protectio

High-profile Lawyer Barnes: Amy Coney Barrett would be a Disaster

High-profile trial lawyer Robert Barnes who deals in civil, criminal and constitutional law reported on Twitter that Amy Coney Barrett would be a disaster. The Barnes Twitter report shows that Coney Barrett has " sid[ed] with the government on the lockdowns, on uncompensated takings, on excusing First Amendment infringements & Fourth Amendment violations... [and] exclaimed the benefits of Jacobson, the decision that green-lit forced vaccines & carved out an emergency exception to Constitutional protection in "public health" or "emergency" cases used to justify forced sterilizations & detention camps... [and] hid behind precedent... to prohibit pro-life activists from exercising their free speech ." The Avvo.com lawyer directory reports that attorney "Robert Barnes embraces the challenge to defend the little guy and stand up for what is right. This is why he left the prestigious Yale Law School, whom publicly stated their unwill

If Kamala Harris' Father is part White & part Jamaican African and her Mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black?

  Is Joe Biden's running mate really Black? If Kamala Harris' father is part white and part Jamaican African and her mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black? Reason.com tries to figure it out: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's pick to be the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nominee, is the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Her father, as I understand it, has ancestors of both European and African origin. [Welcome new Volokh readers. FYI, I've been working on a book on the American Law of Race, with this forthcoming article the first relevant output. My own opinion is that Ms. Harris should be deemed American, period, but there is no such box on government forms, and if you decline to state your race, someone will decide for you… First things first. There is no multiracial or mixed-race category in American law in any jurisdiction. Nor is there an Indian category. So Harris cannot be legally Indian, nor can she b
