(CNN) – Welcome to CNN Radio News Day.

  • Mexico's president-elect had a brief meeting with President Obama Tuesday at the White House.  He doesn't officially take office until Saturday, but Enrique Pena Nieto is setting his agenda, which includes much more than the war on drugs.  Christopher Wilson with the Mexico Institute at the Wilson Center says this is the perfect time to move the U.S-Mexico relationship beyond the violence:

"It is important to note that violence is down a little bit and stabilized sort of over the last year and has now fallen in 2012."

  • U.S. Army Private Bradley Manning took the stand for the first time Tuesday since being locked-up more than two years ago.  He's the soldier accused of leaking the largest cache of classified documents in U.S. history known as Wikileaks.  In court Tuesday, his lawyers were trying to get 22 charges against Manning thrown out.  CNN.COM writer Ashley Fantz has been covering the story since it broke two years ago.  She says Manning's supporters call him merely a whistleblower, and not an enemy of the state:

"What was he blowing the whistle on?  That we had units working in Iraq that the American public didn't know about?  Is that bad?  Do you think that's bad?  Should the American public know about that?"

  • The Southern Poverty Law Center on Tuesday filed what it calls a first-of-its-kind lawsuit.  It takes aim at a  so-called conversion therapy center in New Jersey which claims to help gay people who want to become straight.  The lawsuit was filed under the state's Consumer Fraud Act.  Attorney Christine Sun says victims were taken advantage of:

"Conversion therapy is nothing more than junk science, that leaves people feeling ashamed of who they are, and believing they need to fix something that isn't broken."

    It is not enough to know SAP and English. For a free IT terrorism country. Help middle-class families and families that are working hard to try to get into the middle class. We have to reduce Chinese’s American market, and return back our employments. Please do not give more positions to the India; we want the jobs in the USA. That´s a good beginning and we have to start again with Obama. Most of 500 Fortune are not paying even the current taxes because of Indian frauds in the IT systems.
    Our fight for civil rights in Mexico, it is an issue than Obama has to talk to the new President of Mexico. A small number of whites in power have been lying to browns for almost more than 200 years. We need the help of our African American brothers; you can understand the situation we are living. I was attacked by them in San Antonio, Texas using the Mexican and American mafias, and with the support economically of China and technical support of India. They are coming like terrorist from Mexico to United States with the support of the china imperium.
    Cuando ya viviendo en EU, ya habiendo pensado que mis nulas libertades civiles, como moreno en México ya habían pasado, fue atacado en San Antonio, Texas con toda mi familia, usaron mafias mexicas y americanas, con soporte técnico y económico de la India y de China, estoy blancos como minoría en el poder, han mentido más de 200 años a las mayorías mexicanas, teniéndonos en la pobreza, y quitando nuestros sueños, trabajados, etc. burlándose de todos. Pido ayuda de los africanos americanos que nos ayuden a pelear por nuestras libertades civiles y de nuestras libertades. EU necesitas fronteras libres y al menos que cumplan con los derechos civiles más básicos.
    Todos lo que nos dicen estas minorías mexicanas blancas en el poder son puras estupideces, incluyen escritores blancos que dicen que escriben de los mexicanos..., de trabajadores de PEMEX como nuestros vecinos que creyéndose blancos mexicanos hacen fraudes a México, es toda la familia, más de 100 personas chupando el erario. Los blancos homosexuales controlando mafias y ahora el terrorismo con la ayuda de ciudadanos chinos y de la india. Nos ponen gente en los medio mentirosos todos ellos creen que pertenecen a los del poder, pero no es así. En fín, más 200 años sin resultados.
