A reconquistador has been elected president of Mexico. Why should you be concerned that Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is the next president of Mexico? Because his agenda will have a tremendous impact on the United States.
First, what is a reconquistador? You must first understand what the modern Reconquista movement is all about. Reconquista means reconquest. Many south of the border believe the American Southwest was stolen from them. They want it back. Mexico obviously doesn't have the military might to do it so their plan is to flood as many people as they can into the region and vote it back to Mexico.
This all started after the Mexican-American War. To give you a better sense of the attitude, the Mexican-American War, or Mexican War, is known in Mexico as the American Intervention in Mexico. Texas had fought for its independence from Mexico and won it on April 21, 1836. Texas petitioned to become a state of the United States and did so on December 29, 1845.
Mexico had only gained its independence from Spain in 1821 so they were eager to hang on to every acre of land they could. In April of 1846 the Mexican army invaded the United States in the new state of Texas. We declared war on Mexico the following month and the Mexican-American War thus began.
We drove the Mexican army all the way back to Mexico City and in 1848 they were defeated. We agreed to pay them $15 million for the physical damage of the war and for the disputed territories. We also agreed to assume another $3.25 million in debt the Mexican government owed United States citizens. When the dust settled the Mexicans had lost over a third of the territory they had when they won their independence from Spain just 27 years prior. They were not happy.
To add insult to injury, just a year later, in 1849, something happened in California, a new territory we had just won and bought from Mexico. Gold was discovered. That really hacked them off. Thus was born the modern Reconquista movement.
Now, if you're prone to believe this is just a conspiracy theory I invite you to do an Internet search and see for yourself. The stated goal of the reconquistadors is to take back the American Southwest for La Raza, the race. They mean the race of people in Mexico, which is not technically a race, but you get the picture. The plan is to flood the Southwest with enough people to take over the area politically and cede it back to Mexico. You may think this is far-fetched but it's not. California is already 40 percent Hispanic. Same for Texas.
That's certainly not to say that every Hispanic is somehow suspect and not loyal to the United States. Frankly, it's hard to know how many Hispanics are part of the Reconquista movement. We must simply take those who are at their word. Mario Obledo, a La Raza lawyer and Reconquista leader said, "California is going to be a Hispanic state. Anyone who doesn't like it should leave." A professor in LA suggested Latinos needed to speak in code so non-Latinos wouldn't catch on.
Once you research the Reconquista movement you'll see a lot about Aztlan. According to Aztec legend, that's the rightful land of the indigenous peoples of Mexico. It includes the American Southwest. They refer to it as their "occupied homeland."
Remember what you read here. When the next wave of illegal aliens hits the southern border you'll know why. La Reconquista is on.

Homeless people are taking over. I know we're supposed to be sympathetic, and I am. I've worked with the homeless in varying capacities. I've given my time and money. I have a special place in my heart for the truly needy. But I fear too many are taking advantage of our generosity. Take the ubiquitous person at the off-ramp with the sign....Read More
Before we get into this I don't want anyone thinking I'm a space curmudgeon. I loved Star Trek. (Star Wars, not so much.) I think space exploration is exciting. I'm old enough to remember when we landed on the moon. You'd be amazed at how many people are alive today who weren't even born the last time we went to the moon in 1972. Now it's been r...Read More
Everybody's freaking out about a trade war with China. What's the worst case scenario? That we no longer do business with China? That would be fine by me. China is on just about every group's top 10 list of human rights violators, usually at the very top. It's a brutal communist regime that's killed tens of millions of people. An estimated 45 mi...Read More
What qualifies a person to be president? Interesting question. Pose it to a hundred people you'll probably get a hundred answers. Most will say experience. That can either be in the business world, as in President Trump's case, or political. What kind of political experience? Most of our presidents have first been governor somewhere. A few, like...Read More
I read an article in The National, a publication from the United Arab Emirates, about an Emirati woman who awakened from a coma after nearly 30 years. Can you imagine that? It got me to thinking whether someone in that situation would find the world a better or worse place after 30 years.Just think of what has transpired over the past 30 years. ...Read More
Georgetown University students recently voted 2-1 to create a $27 student fee to pay reparations to descendants of slaves sold by the university in 1838 in order to save it. Descendants of those 272 slaves are treated as legacy students by the university, giving them preferential treatment in admissions. The liberal world rejoiced, but it was si...Read More
This is almost like a war. We're fighting socialism on so many fronts. One wave of the dreaded enemy is approaching from the west as California seeks to tax soft drinks, tires, guns, car batteries, even lawyers. Anything the socialists don't like they tax. Another big battle front is in the southwest. The one at the southern border. They've pene...Read More
You would think with the resume of Joe Biden you'd be embraced by your own party. This ain't Joe's party any longer. It's the party of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar. You wonder why the Democrats aren't rushing to Joe's defense over accusations of inappropriate touching? The truth is the socialist wing of the Democrat Party is behind th...Read More
I think everyone can agree, regardless of political ideology, the Trump-Russia issue turned into a big mess. The news media detest not knowing. In place of good, solid information on just what may have transpired between the Trump campaign and Russia, or just what may not have transpired, they chose to fill in the blanks with rampant negative sp...Read More
There's this guy named Andrew Yang. You've probably never heard of him. The San Francisco Chronicle is singing his praises. Why? Because he's running for president and he's promising a 'freedom dividend' to every adult American. What's a freedom dividend? It's $1,000 a month just for being alive. How does he expect to pay for this? Oh, he has no...Read More
