2018: The Battle to Save California
reaches the front burner?

Newsweek -- November 25, 2017
CAN THIS LATINO LAWMAKER HELP STOP TRUMP'S WHITE HOUSE?
    Antonio Villaraigosa has a shot at becoming California's first Latino governor since 1875. But he doesn't want to hear that.
    “I'm an American, not only a Latino,” Villaraigosa said in a recent interview with Newsweek. “I love this country.”
    With the election still a year away, Villaraigosa, who appeared on the cover of Newsweek after becoming Los Angeles' first Latino mayor in 2005, already faces a long road to Sacramento. His chief opponent, former mayor of San Francisco and current Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, a so-called “golden boy of California politics,” is out-polling and out-fundraising him.
    ....Last month, his campaign released a 12-minute video created by Mark Putnam, the director behind one of Barack Obama's famous 30-minute campaign video during the 2008 presidential election. In the video, Villaraigosa celebrates his working-class and Latino background while blasting the Trump administration's onslaught of anti-immigration policies.

Can President Trump Save California?  
    Antonio Villaraigosa stands a good chance of being elected governor of California. If that happens, America stands a good chance of losing California.
    From 1992 to 2002, I ran a California group, Voice of Citizens Together, that fought against illegal immigration. One of our major achievements was Proposition 187, a ballot measure designed to cut off taxpayer funding for illegal aliens.
    Proposition 187 was passed by California voters overwhelmingly, only to be killed - illegally - by Gray Davis, the Governor of California, and Antonio Villaraigosa, Speaker of the California Assembly.

    In 1999, my group attempted to place an ad in the Los Angeles Daily News opposing Villaraigosa's run for Mayor of Los Angeles.
    In a blatant attack on political free speech, the Los Angeles Times threatened the Daily News and it killed the ad. Our attempt to sue the Times ran into a political machine and it went nowhere.
    Our attempt to recall Gov. Davis met the same fate.
    The mainstream media will not tell the true story of how California became a state on the verge of separatism --- and Mexican domination.
    I could tell that story, which is exactly why the media work hard to make sure my voice is not heard.
    I couldn't save California, but President Trump can.
    
PS: This short clip from my video Conquest of Azlan gives you a taste of who Antonio Villaraigosa really is.
