Comentarios from Maria: Mexico a sham – Trump reverts to form in immigration speech

Maya Angelou once said “when someone shows you who they are, believe them; the first time.” If we had all taken those words to heart, no one would have been surprised at Donald Trump’s recent, highly anticipated immigration speech that he gave this week in Arizona, where he doubled down on his most draconian plans […]

Comentarios from Maria: Desperation and a Srategy to Divide

Every time Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump opens his mouth it is usually to say something terrible about someone or to insult entire groups of voters. I think he is beginning to realize that this strategy is not working. This can be seen in the most recent surveys where Hillary Clinton is winning by about […]

Comentarios from Maria: Is Melania ‘lying and crooked’ over her immigration story?

Donald Trump has made immigration a cornerstone of his bid for the presidency. His campaign has not been shy about using his wife Melania’s own experience as a “lawful” immigrant to justify why her husband is pushing such a draconian immigration proposal that would deport the 11 million undocumented immigrants currently living in the United […]

Comentarios from Maria: Chaos, Crisis and Cruz: The Trump Convention So Far

This has been a GOP convention in 4-D: dissonance, discord, divisiveness and dishonesty. From the plagiarism debacle, to the Cruz revolt, to the messages of anger and hate coming from almost every speaker on that stage, the Trump campaign and the Republican Party utterly failed to expand their appeal beyond the nominee’s faithful supporters. Let’s […]

Comentarios from Maria: GOP’s Back-up Plan Against Clinton Goes Up In Flames

Political America can now exhale. FBI Director James Comey announced today that he would not be recommending any charges be brought against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, for intentionally mishandling classified information. While there is certainly a huge sigh of relief coming from Brooklyn headquarters, there’s no question that […]

Comentarios From Maria: Is The Right To Bear Arms More Important Than The Right To Life?

In light of the tragic events of last week in Orlando, with the massacre at Pulse Night Club, where most of the victims were Latino and LGBT community, this week I want to give up my blog space to my colleague who was touched by that dreadful massacre, Dakar Lanzino: “The massacre at Pulse Night […]

Comentrios from Maria: A Year Of Continued Rants Against Democracy And Citizenship

This week marks the one year anniversary of the real estate mogul, Donald Trump, announcing his candidacy for president with a speech based on racism and xenophobia. Trump said at the time that Mexicans immigrants, who make the delicate decision to leave their country, were nothing more than rapists and criminals, claiming that he would […]

Comentarios from Maria: An Interesting “Uniting” Strategy Directed To Republican Critics

The real estate mogul, Donald Trump, continues his tour of the United States seeking to “unify” the Republican Party, and those who don’t already supporting him, will be destroyed politically in the process. This is Trump’s strategy to unify the party, which was deployed last week in the state of New Mexico in one of […]

Comentarios from Maria: Do Not Underestimate The Republican Candidate, Instead Let’s Get Out To Vote

If you are paying attention to the polls and everything that is happening in the world of politics, you know that Donald Trump is about to be nominated for president by the Republicans. Despite this, many party leaders are not ready to support the real estate mogul. Starting with the most recent presidents from his […]

Comentarios from Maria: Now Its Hillary Clinton’s Turn

How far has the Republican Party come? Last week, after winning the state of Indiana with 53 percent of the vote, Donald Trump officially became the presumptive Republicans nominee for the presidency of the United States. His closest rival, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, threw in the towel and suspended his campaign after losing the state […]
