Emil Guillermo: Chris Christie in the race means more sensitive rhetoric needed in campaign….

GOP candidates will now no longer be able to utter the phrase “elephant in the room.”

Satirical sources say this is Obama  telling Christie, there are no seats big enough currently in Air Force One to accommodate a Christie presidential victory.

But as Christie satirically said, “We’ll cross that bridge…”

Oops, another cliché his speechwriters will have to nix.

Emil Guillermo: Obama’s strange Friday–same sex and black churches.

Did you see his phone call to the Jim Obergefell, lead plaintiff on the same-sex case?  And then did you see him in Mother Emanuel singing, “Amazing Grace”?

President Obama was deftly in two different worlds that don’t always mix. Are we on a collision course?

Emil Guillermo: In new exclusive interview, Ronald Ebens, Vincent Chin’s killer, denies financial windfall

June 19-23 was the period where we remember the 33rd Anniversary of the brutal beating death of Vincent Chin.  The killer, Ronald Ebens, has never spent a day in prison, but owes the Chin estate an amount that was more than $8 million in 2012 and continues to grow  with interest.

My recent requests for an interview had been unanswered.

But before the anniversary week passed, I made one more attempt to reach Ebens.

And he answered.

I wanted to know if he was sitting on recently received money that should rightfully go to Vincent Chin’s estate.
