  • La Raza VP Latest to Win Obama Ethics Waiver

    Jul 13, 2008 - San Diego, California, USA - Presidential candidate U.S. Senator BARACK OBAMA (D-IL), keynote speaker at the 'NCLR 40 years, A Stronger America Together' Annual Conference.The National Council of La Raza

    Despite his solemn promise to the American people to keep lobbyists out of his Administration, two more have slipped in. The Hill reports:

    The waivers were provided for Jocelyn Frye, director of policy and projects in the Office of the First Lady, and Cecilia Munoz, director of intergovernmental affairs in the executive office of the president.

    Munoz was a senior vice president for the National Council of La Raza, where she supervised all legislative and advocacy activities on the state and local levels. Munoz was heavily involved in the immigration battles in Congress in recent years, and is now a principal liaison to the Hispanic community for the administration.

      So we have another promise broken or rather "put aside" by President Obama. This is typical of Liberals because they have no foundation, they just "swing in the wind".

      On another note, why do we need a Hispanic Liaison? For that fact, why isn't there an Italian Liaison or a German Liaison or an Irish Liaison? I'm surprised there isn't a Muslim Liaison…. oh wait, that is probably in the works!

      You are in America, learn English or go home!

    6. Keith, Miami says:

      Obama's a liar. Plain and simple. The lasting damage that he is causing the US is far worse than any terroist has done or could do violently. Obama is dismantling the strength of the US from the inside out. And most of us are marching obeidantly to our economic slaughter. Instead of, "It's just a shower"… we're getting told, "It's stimulus." He should be ashamed of himself. Clearly, he's the bagman for the liberals who are actually in power; Pelosi and Reid and the special interests behind them. And the RINO's are no better.They need to stand up for the conservative principles and common sense that built this nation. I feel most sorry for the blacks who craved a leader so much, only to end up with a fraud representing them. God save the nation.

    7. Liz, FLorida says:

      I am Hispanic and became and US Citizen and to see this president even listen to La Raza, which is another political group pushing radical thinking onto everyone is beyond my comprehension!

    8. Intelligence Report, says:

      Does this really suprize anyone?…Obama has not kept one promise other than to make everyone pay for his socialist programs!He has unsurped the constitution and well as congress…they break the law on a daily basis..where is the out cry of them NOT running our government as a republic as called for in the constitution??…Both sides have perverted our constitution for many years!..This needs to STOP!!..THEY WORK FOR US!..WHO IN THE HELL DOES OBAMA THINK HE IS? AND PELOSI AND REID ALSO!

    9. mike baker Dallas Ce says:

    10. W . Childress Corpus says:

      If this guy continues with his Communist policies I foresee that there will be a mutiny the likes this nation has never seen.

    13. Hamilton, Camarillo, says:

      A revolution or even a secession is so unthinkable to Americans, it will take a lot to give them hope and inspire them to take any kind of action. The reason: they don't know what is going on. Unless they surf the web vigorously, they will only know the news that the media provides. Enough said. It is our duty to talk, talk, talk to everyone — our families, our friends, our neighbors, people in the supermarket lines. Tell them what is happening on our border,

      tell them about LaRaza (all you have to say is it

      means The Race — the Bronze race). It will take

      time but every day it becomes more important for

      Americans to try to protect our country. Start now.

    14. Buzzy S., Hendersonv says:

      As a popular host says, "America is getting dumber by the day." Common sense is passe. The majority of his supporters suffer as such, and were therefore driven by the kook media to swallow (sorry, Monica)his diatribe. Tell them (the idiots) what they want to hear; promise whatever makes them feel warm and fuzzy. This cesspool in Washington has an agenda; one that was contrived and refined over the years, before Carter through today. Being dependent upon gvt. for your thinking, magnify and divide the citizens in 'classes', promote class warfare; discredit public figures (from elected conservatives to Joe the Plumber), then hoard the power and wealth into a select 'group' of people. All of this follows Karl Marx to the letter. And stupid people keep swallowing.

      Congress in recent years, and is now a principal liaison to the Hispanic community for the administration…

      This is America isn't it? The above statement is an admission to the government's violation of equal rights. equal opportunity, RACISM!

      Congress shouldn't be a liaison to any race based community in the name of America. Where tax dollars should go to the equal benefit of all to ensue citizens are treated equal.

    16. Sam Gaylord, Florida says:

      I lived in Calif. for 20+ years. La Raza's agenda was to protect the Illegals and gain strength in Calif. politics. Their end-game includes taking back Calif., Ariz., New Mexico and parts of Texas into Mexico. With these people in Obama's administration—guess what any new immigration bill will be.
