What really goes on when Latinos for Trump throw a get-out-the-vote campaign party for their candidate? Pachanga for Trump goes into the belly of the GOP beast to find out the shocking truth. [Video by the Latino Comedy Project.]
When the kids at Eagle Pass Independent School District’s C.C. Winn High School — on the Mexico-US border west of San Antonio — planned a pep rally, they wanted it to reflect their heritage.
Internet is loving Texas school’s pep rally that looked, sounded more like a quinceañera
How would you like those little “Mexican power bars” delivered to your door all frozen and stuff? Got $110? There are three colors to choose from, all for just under $20 a pound!
Ughhhhhhhh. There goes another crazy Texas politico saying something crazy. This time it’s Austin City Councilman Don Zimmerman, who told a group of Latino parents and students who testified in front of the council, some in Spanish, to stop being moochers (basically).
It’s that time of the year — Hatch Chile Season.
Photos submitted to MUFON sure show something strange in the skies over a San Antonio high school named after the racist traitor Robert E. Lee. [All photos are minimized on this page. Click on an image to biggify.]
Here’s what the eyewitness/photographer reported to the Mutual UFO Network, and all of his photos:
“Western” adventure comics, true crime comics, and gringo-written history all came together when publisher Avon gave birth to a Pancho Villa issue as part of their notorious outlaws series:
In El Paso, mechanized squads of senior citizens sneak up on soldiers and offer them exotic foreign “Meals, Ready-To-Eat” with origins South of the Border. These metal-encased MREs are called “burritos,” according to the truck people. And the Fort Bliss soldiers like them!
Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) has deep feels about his gay brothers and sisters in space because an asteroid killed the dinosaurs and what about extra-terrestrial colonies like Matt Damon and God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. He shared his concerns on the floor of the United States House of Representatives in late May.
A ruca Tejana named Lisa Alamia had jaw surgery and emerged from the operation with a British accent.
It’s a rare but documented medical condition called foreign accent syndrome that typically occurs after people emerge from comas and other brain trauma.
This pinche pocha claims that the only foreign country she’s ever been to is Mexico — and we don’t mean San Antonio. Lisa doesn’t even watch Downton Abbey, let alone eat fish and chips.
Los Lonely Boys — three pochos from Texas — rock hard on this burning version of the Creedence Clearwater Revival classic Born on the Bayou and make it SPANGLISH at the end.
Here’s the backstory via Rolling Stone:
How do the three Texas locations (McAllen, Mission, Pharr) of De Alba Bakery de La Familia make tamales, donuts and rosca de reyes?
Glad you asked! We’ve got (three) videos:
Tamales (two kinds:)
By the time the two young women walked into the shelter, the other migrants were mostly finished with their meals. They stood out as two women among dozens of recently deported men enjoying a meal before continuing on their way. I did what I had been doing all that January morning: I served them each a glass of hot chocolate and a plate of food.
We were volunteering at the Kino Border Initiative (KBI) in Nogales, Mexico, as part of the Center for Social Concerns’ Border Immersion Faculty Seminar. For several years, Notre Dame students have participated in this seminar, but this was the first time it was being offered to faculty and staff as well. As a professor of U.S. Latino literature who studies and teaches about the border, this was an opportunity for me to experience the border in a different way.
Rossy Evelin Lima is an award-winning Mexican poet and linguist. She spoke at TEDxMcallen last year about her experience as an immigrant writer in the U.S. Her website is is here.
POCHO amigo and contributor William A. “Memo” Nericcio is a professor of English and Comparative Literature at San Diego State University. The school him sat down in the red chair and shot this video, and we’re glad they did.
Did you know that Memo LITERALLY WROTE THE BOOK on our hero Speedy Gonzales?
And since it’s #TBT Throwback Thursday, let’s go back to 2010 when Memo kicked off his blog with a video of his visit to Mami Chula Drive-Thru Beer Run in Laredo, Texas:

San Antonio Valentine’s Day Shout Out!
“Hey, baby – que paso? I thought I was your only vato!” The Texas Tornados perform in a 1992 BBC video at the Gruene Hall, in Gruene, Texas.
Want to sing along? We’ve got lyrics!
It’s OK to say the M word: Mexican.
Recent coverage of a new exhibit at a Texas museum — with headlines like “The Texas Rangers Killed Hundreds of Hispanic Americans During the Mexican Revolution” (screen capture above) and “Texas Finally Acknowledges Rangers Killed Hundreds of Latinos,” — is not only historically incorrect but a dangerous attempt to sanitize history.
Just say Mexican, like this Houston Chronicle headline: EXHIBIT TO SHED LIGHT ON MEXICAN-AMERICAN MURDERS. It’s easy.
While Senator Ted Cruz (R-Canadia) was telling the crowd “To God be the Glory” [In Arabic, this is “Allahu Akbar”] in his Des Moines, Iowa victory speech Monday night, PNS snagged an example of the tracts campaign aides were passing out to the crowd — tracts detailing the Christian Sharia Law we can expect under President Cruz.
