Top political consultants were worried. The ballot initiative that would provide for the legalization of cannabis in California was on the ropes and looked as if it would not pass. The biggest block of seemingly attainable votes needed to push the initiative over the top would have to come from Latinx voters who had been polling against legalization. The word went out: the cannabis industry needed to convince a critical mass of Latinx constituents to vote for Proposition 64.

At the most critical period of the campaign groups that championed legalization like the Drug Policy Alliance (DPA) fanned out and met with reluctant Latinx elected officials and community leaders to discuss the benefi...

Bill Maher once again spent real time on Real Time preaching that Democrats need to shift away from their support of Latino/a immigrants. The HBO media opinion leader said Friday that Dems need to be tougher on immigration "like Obama was" in order to have a chance to win the Presidential election.

Never has there been a better example of why the lack of real reporting on Latino politics by cable and broadcast media damages American politics.

While the data of who voted in the 2018 elections has barely solidified and become readily available the general tenor of what occurred anywhere Latinos live in significant numbers has been clear to anyone that has bothered to look. Latino/a's voters ...

While we can all agree that former Vice President JoeBiden has a problem with respecting personal space campaign marketing pros also recognize that the former Vice President has a problem with respecting cyber-space.

The current controversy surrounding the greatest generation leader is a dramatic clash of hand to hand retail politics and personalized mass cyber marketing by his political opponents. It is a lesson for those still believing that you can ignore the current communications landscape by merely doing more of what worked even just five years ago.

The revelation that Biden on at least four occasions touched women in ways that made them feel diminished, intimidated, or just plain ick...

Julian Castro is discovering that Latinx voters are a choosey lot. To be fair his error is not unique to him or his campaign. There is a widespread misunderstanding on the behaviors and desires of the no longer dormant Latinx electorate.

Julian's Latinx mistake in previous election cycles may have been harmless but the current Democratic field has at least one candidate that understands how to engender Latinx support and has deftly implemented that knowledge to her advantage in the past - U.S. Senator Kamala Harris.

Harris ran for U.S. Senate against a Latina candidate, Loretta Sanchez and bested the former Congresswoman among what should have been her base. The Sanchez campaign had fallen ...

First of all, Joe Biden is running for President! I guess this is "breaking news" but it is not new news at all. The former VP's decision was made weeks ago and the reason the mainstream media is wondering about it contains a warning about what you as a political information consumer need to be concerned about.

The real information on Biden's decision has been known to Latinx activists and operatives for at least ten days. The open secret was embedded in a pair of very public announcements. The first announcement was that Latino leader Alex Cristobal had left his prestigious post as the head of the Latino Victory Fund and the second announcement informed the world that Alex, a seasoned st...

On Sunday morning Americans will set their clock forward an hour, lose sixty minutes, and face jet lag without the joy that airline food brings. The agriculturally inspired milestone tells us all that while we deal with the day to day news cycle time itself waits for no one. Here are this weeks bullet points:

Lost Bar Time - Michael Cohen finds himself without a law license killing any possibility of his providing future fellow inmates with help on their appeals in exchange for cigarettes and extra cafeteria pudding.

Early Wake-Up - Democratic primaries are in full swing as candidates finally realize that we live in a 24-7 campaign world.

Longer Days - White House staff is planning for the im...

Meghan McCain tweeted that she was "cared" about the bashing that conservatives administered to her deceased father and war hero Sen. John McCain.

The scorching rhetoric and obligatory cheering by conservatives attending the CPAC conference was just the latest manifestation of the right's disdain for anyone or anything that questions their dear leader Donald Trump.

McCain's cares about the outlandish, distasteful, and scary admonishment her father is as weak as her concern for her support for a party that has birthed and cradled outright hate to anything not resembling their image of a country that never existed beyond the confines of Mayberry RFD and whatever town Leave It to Beaver was s...
