Julian Castro announced his candidacy to become the Democrat nominee for President of the United States in his hometown, San Antonio, Texas Saturday. He promised an end to Right To Life (Feds will determine if you live or die), an end to American culture (open up USA borders for invasion by all) and an end to modern conveniences (strictly regulate how the masses live to “protect the planet”).
Hillary has said she chose Tim Kaine as her running mate in 2016 because he spoke fluent Spanish, and Castro did not. Has he been taking language lessons? At the end of his remarks, Castro managed to speak four or five sentences in Spanish.
CALLED “LATINO OBAMA,” CAN ANOTHER COMMUNITY ORGANIZER MAKE IT TO OVAL OFFICE?
Raised by a never-married mother* who was an activist for La Raza, Julian Castro, age 44, never considered working in the private sector. La Raza, translated “The Race,” is a racist organization that teaches Hispanic-Americans to view themselves as victims of white Americans.
LIFELONG OBSESSION TO ACQUIRE POLITICAL POWER: NEVER HELD A REAL JOB
Julian Castro was an intern in the Clinton White House at age 20 and became the youngest city councilman in San Antonio history at age 26. He became mayor of San Antonio at age 30, and Obama’s HUD secretary at age 39.
Like Obama, who was showcased at the 2004 Democrat National Convention, Castro delivered a convention keynote address in 2012, the first Hispanic to do so. Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA) chose Obama because he was an “articulate, clean**” black man whose complexion was not “too” black.
Teddy used his power and connections to groom the inexperienced Obama to become president. Will a powerful old-line Democrat groom this attractive brown-skinned man to be the “Latino Obama?”
AFFIRMATIVE ACTION: CASTRO SAYS HIS SCORES WOULD NOT GET WHITE STUDENT INTO STANFORD, HARVARD
After high school graduation the Castro brothers*** were off to Stanford University, then to Harvard for law school.
“Joaquín and I got into Stanford because of affirmative action,” Julián told The New York Times Magazine in 2010. “I scored 1210 on my SATs, which was lower than the median matriculating student. But I did fine in college and in law school. So did Joaquín. I’m a strong supporter of affirmative action because I’ve seen it work in my own life.”
Julian majored in political science and communications at Stanford. During their junior year, he tied his brother for the most votes in the student Senate election.
HOPING TO BE HILLARY’S RUNNING MATE, CASTRO VIOLATED HATCH ACT
In May 2014, President Barack Obama nominated Julian Castro to be the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. He served from July 2014 to the end of the Obama Administration.
On October 15, 2015, Castro endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. When Clinton was asked if Castro could be her pick for vice president, she said, “I am going to look really hard at him for anything because that’s how good he is.”
In January 2016 Castro began to campaign for Clinton, as a test of his appeal to the electorate. On April 4th he gave an interview to Katie Couric in his official capacity as HUD Secretary. During the interview he endorsed Clinton for president. This was a clear violation of the Hatch Act which prohibits government officials from using their positions of power to campaign for candidates.
In July, the U.S. Office of Special Counsel issued a finding that Castro had violated the Hatch Act by commenting on the 2016 campaign while giving an interview in his official capacity. Obama declared he had no intention of disciplining Castro. After all, Democrat politicians don’t have to follow the rules they make for the rest of America.
Julian Castro is a Third Generation Latino. My, he is so nice looking! He cannot speak Spanish. Is this a drawback to winning the Democrat nomination for president?
