It’s just sooooo horrible that Trump implied he wouldn’t get a fair hearing from the La Raza judge, isn’t it? Why, I’m speechless with outrage over it! And Trump is so damned stupid he has no idea that the National Council Of La Raza has NO CONNECTION WHATSOEVER with the La Raza Lawyers association. None. They are entirely separate.
And if you believe that, you’re a fucking numbskull.
U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who has been criticized by Donald Trump as a “hater” appointed by President Obama who should be recused from the case, listed his membership in the “La Raza Lawyers of San Diego” on a judicial questionnaire he filled out when he was selected to be a federal judge. He was named in a brochure as a member of the selection committee for the organization’s 2014 Annual Scholarship Fund Dinner & Gala. Meanwhile, the San-Diego based law firm representing the plaintiffs in the Trump University case, Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd, was listed as a sponsor of the event.
WND reported the San Diego firm paid $675,000 to the Clintons for speeches, and the firm’s founder is a wealthy San Diego lawyer who served a two-year sentence in federal prison for his role in a kickback scheme to mobilize plaintiffs for class-action lawsuits.
While critics of Trump have argued that the San Diego La Raza Lawyers’ association is not affiliated with the National Council of La Raza, consider the following:
- The San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association is a member of the La Raza Lawyers of California, affiliated with the Chicano/Latino Bar Association of California.
- On the website of the La Raza Lawyers Association of California, at the bottom of the “Links & Affiliates Page,” the National Council of La Raza is listed.
- The website of the San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association is joint-listed as San Diego’s Latino/Latina Bar Association.
- On the “endorsements” page, the combined website lists the National Council of La Raza as part of the “community,” along with the Hispanic National Bar Association,, a group that emerged with a changed name from the originally formed La Raza National Lawyers Association and the La Raza National Bar Association tracing its origin back to 1971.
Further, while the San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association and the National Council of La Raza are legally separate incorporated entities, the two groups appear to have an affiliation that traces back to the emergence of MEChA, the Moviemento Estudiantil Chicanos de Atzlán.
MEChA is a 1960s radical separatist student movement in California that espoused the mythical Aztec idea of a “nation of Aztlán,” comprising much of the southwestern United States, including California.
As David Horowitz points out on his website Discover the Networks that La Raza, Spanish for “the race,” also has roots in the early 1960s with a “united front” organization, the National Organization for Mexican American Services, NOMAS. The group initially was funded by the Ford Foundation, and subsequently by George Soros’ Open Society Institute and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
Yeah, I’m sure this guy will rule absolutely fairly in the Trump U case. Why, he probably doesn’t despise Trump nearly as bad as the miserable, slimy worms of the GOPe—who quite clearly believe that this time, THIS TIME, they’ve finally found the lever with which they can pry Trump out of the nomination—do.
Keep crawling, little worms. Before it’s over, you’ll have reduced your pathetic party to little more than a circle jerk that can hold its “national convention” in a soda shop. Then you can natter smugly to each other about those “principles” you’re too chickenshit to ever act on all you like.
Via Bill, who spews forth some HATEFULBIGOTEDRACISTHATRED himself:
If you are an affiliate or in any way support the efforts and goals of La Raza, the Hispanic anti-American revolutionary hate group, you have no place in an American judicial system, any more than a Muslim Mad Mullah wedded to Sharia does.
Bingo. Nailed it in one. And if we’re so well and truly far gone that we can’t even allow a nominee for president to take note of these simple truths, well, there really is no saving this country—and it’s not worth saving anyway. Just turn the keys over to the Muslim Brotherhood and La Raza and put out the lights on your way out the door, willya?
Update! Trump’s response:
Over the past few weeks, I have watched as the media has reported one inaccuracy after another concerning the ongoing litigation involving Trump University. There are several important facts the public should know and that the media has failed to report.
Throughout the litigation my attorneys have continually demonstrated that students who participated in Trump University were provided a substantive, valuable education based upon a curriculum developed by professors from Northwestern University, Columbia Business School, Stanford University and other respected institutions. And, the response from students was overwhelming. Over a five year period, more than 10,000 paying students filled out surveys giving the courses high marks and expressing their overwhelming satisfaction with Trump University’s programs. For example:
- Former student Tarla Makaeff, the original plaintiff in the litigation, not only completed multiple surveys rating Trump University’s three-day seminar “excellent” in every category, but also praised Trump University’s mentorship program in a glowing 5 plus minute video testimonial. When asked “how could Trump University help to meet [her] goals”, she simply stated “[c]ontinue to offer great classes.” Once the plaintiffs’ lawyers realized how disastrous a witness she was, they asked to have her removed from the case. Over my lawyers’ objections, the judge granted the plaintiffs’ motion, but allowed the case to continue.
- Art Cohen, a lead plaintiffs in the litigation, completed a survey in which he not only rated Trump University’s three-day seminar “excellent” in virtually every category, but went so far as to indicate that he would “attend another Trump University seminar” and even “recommend Trump University seminars to a friend.” When asked how Trump University could improve the seminar, Mr. Cohen’s only suggestion was to “[h]ave lunch sandwiches brought in” and make the lunch break 45 minutes.
- Former student Bob Giullo, who has been critical of Trump University in numerous interviews and negative advertisements from my political opponents, also expressed his satisfaction, rating Trump University’s programs “excellent” in every category. When asked how Trump University could improve its programs, Mr. Giullo simply asked that students be provided “more comfortable chairs.”
Normally, legal issues in a civil case would be heard in a neutral environment. However, given my unique circumstances as nominee of the Republican Party and the core issues of my campaign that focus on illegal immigration, jobs and unfair trade, I have concerns as to my ability to receive a fair trial.
As well you might, and should. Anybody think the lawyers bringing this case forward might have done a little venue-shopping beforehand? Nah, that could NEVER happen, right, GOPers?
Robot update! Adams weighs in:
If you have been watching CNN, you know Anderson Cooper has been reporting about the discovery that a sitting judge is actually a robot. His name is Gonzalo Curiel and he is presiding over the Trump University case.
Curiel looks human on the outside, and he has passed as human for decades. But Cooper made it clear in his interviews yesterday that while science understands that 100% of humans are biased about just about everything, this robot judge is not susceptible to being influenced by his life experiences. It sounds deeply implausible, but no one on CNN challenged Cooper’s implication that Judge Curiel is the only bias-free entity in the universe. Ergo, he must be a robot.
Must be. Meanwhile, the idiot GOPe goes right on helping to tie the noose in the rope the Left will use to hang them.
Deeper designs update! Sundance digs in, finds moldy rot:
More specifically, the GOPe leadership of Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell were always going to be in opposition to Donald Trump. The entire architecture of the republican presidential race was structurally intended to advance the ‘establishment’ candidacy of next-in-line Jeb. This was the grand design since October of 2014, including every player within the presidential race, which we previously outlined in great detail.
As we presented mid-2015, if Trump bested their globalist/Wall St efforts -which seemed almost insurmountable at the time- the GOPe would have no reasonable alternative other than to support the alternate side of the UniParty coin, Hillary Clinton.
However, supporting Clinton is ideologically favorable but optically challenging. Everything would have to be carefully constructed to avoid the appearance of their support.
Predictably 2016 endorsements would not be actual endorsements per se’. Support in-name-only is the best way to think of it. What followed (post Indiana) was essentially the visibility of this approach. The media sells the arms length approach as necessary due to the vulgarian or controversial nature of candidate Trump. However, that narrative is factually false.
The GOPe do not support the nationalist candidacy of Donald Trump because the America-First principles espoused by Trump are antithetical to their legislative agenda. It has nothing to do with Trump’s personality; their motives only use the behavioral excuse as a shield to hide the reality of their UniParty affiliation.
As an example today when House Speaker Paul Ryan says candidate Trump’s remarks about Judge Curiel are “the literal definition of racism“, most of the Trump supporters and most of the Anti-Trump advocates, point out how Ryan’s remarks are going to be in Hillary Clinton campaign ads.
Yes, indeed Ryan’s words will be in Hillary Clinton campaign ads; but that is not accidental – it is by Machiavellian design.
The GOPe is going to do everything within their power to undermine the candidacy of their own nominee because that nominee is an existential threat to their own grip on power.
I’d say he’s got it. Which Machiavellian cunning, as I’ve said many times about Obama, doesn’t preclude their being stupid.
