Politico ^ | May 18, 2014 | Edward Isaac-Dovere

Many Democrats already see Hillary Clinton’s presidential candidacy as a foregone conclusion. Now some believe they’ve already got her running mate, too: San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro, about to be President Barack Obama’s nominee for Housing and Urban Development Secretary.

The MSM pushing Castro continues. If Julian has national political aspirations probably a smart move to leave Texas as the Blueization of TX is still around two decades from happening. We had black for 2008-16, then woman for 2016-? depending on PIAPS health, then Castro, then some gay politician coming down the pipeline.

I am sure the state of Texas can find plenty of truthful problems with this clown. Corrupt? Oh, you betcha...and I bet there are plenty of minorities who have had their lives disrupted by this greedy politician.

Oh right ... let's make the US government completely indistinguishable from the third world, populist, incompetent and criminal governments of every other sh*&-hole on earth!

There's a guy here who dumps the trash... let's get HIM on the campaign trail because I know HE is more concerned for this country AND is certainly MORE competent!!

Half the country (48.5%) sees these ‘Rat bastards for the Bolsheviks they really are. What happens when we simply say no — elections be damned.

I know they are only names, but isn’t it weird that two of the names of people that hated America the most will have been represented in the White House. Hussein and Castro..

Here's the problem. The RINO puppet masters will give us some globalist, pro-banking interests candidate and they'll lecture us on choosing "the lesser of two evils" (again acknowledging the pre-ordained 'pub is evil). They'll figure it'll be hillary and the ptb are okay with that. Then, the dems insert someone really really inept even compared to Obama and that person will win, not being a known on the world stage.

What's the answwer? A real constitutional conservative with a track record and an ability to articulate, inspire, and respond very well to fast moving events will win, as long as they're with conservatives about states rights and stopping the invasion of the US.

BEWARE THE CASTROS US Cong Julian Castro, San Antonio, his identical twin brother -- San Diego Mayor Julian Castro (now making the rounds of presidential primary states)....and Mamsita Castro---Maria “Rosie” Castro--hardline La Raza activist.

Freshman Cong Joaquín Castro warned last year that if Speaker Boehner adhered to his promise to invoke the so-called Hastert rule, the House will not pass comprehensive immigration reform last year.

So I guess that will put the kibosh to the ambitious Castro family's plans for America, thank God. God only knows how much San Diego tax money and Congressional tax money----from her sons----is going into furthering mamasita's La Raza activities.

San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro---2012 Democrat convention keynoter---genially introduced the twins' mother, Maria “Rosie” Castro to the convention-goers. Mamasita Castro is a radical ethnocentric, anti-assimilationist....a key figure in the activities of the blood-thirsty, tax-funded “La Raza."


AMERICANS ARE ALREADY FUNDING MAMASITA'S HATE-FILLED ORGANIZATION BIGTIME: In 2005 alone, $7.9 million in taxpayer funding was given to La Raza charter schools in the form of US Dept of Education grants.

LA RAZA schools stress Latino culture, the Spanish language, the re-conquest of the American Southwest, the establishment of the mythical Atzlan on US soil, and even Aztec math.

In addition to using taxpayer funds to enforce the teaching of murder and violence in US public schools, the federally-funded La Raza organization operates 100 charter schools across America.

LA RAZA TEACHES HATE-AMERICA WITH OUR TAX DOLLARS La Raza Studies do not even try to sugar-coat its anti-America agenda and its bloodthirsty plans to kill off Americans: Raza Studies textbook “Occupied America,” by Rodolfo Acuña, includes a violent and blood-curdling speech given by university professor Jose Angel Gutierrez: “We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is, if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him,” (pg. 323). The following is taken directly from La Raza's Occupied America: “.......execute all white males over age 16,” (p 167--AKA the Plan of San Diego).


La Raza also got Democrat Congressional earmarks and tax dollars for "mortgage counseling." The super-secret Congressional Hispanic Caucus calculatedly launched a housing initiative called "HOGAR"-- Spanish for home. Conspiract and collusion were the watchwords....... race-based "La Raza" was given tax dollars and Congressionsl earmarks to finance its so-called mortgage activities. La Raza's "strategic partnerships” with Wachovia and Bank of America forced the falsifications of mortgage-application and the dumbing down of myge requirements and documentation standards.......which caused taxpayers to be socked w/ billions in bailouts as the US economy tanked.

La Raza aided and abetted risky federal and private-home loans to latinos over the last decade. thanks to the lending industry’s version of “don’t ask, don’t tell.” In addition to millions of federal tax dollars, La Raza also collected a $1 million Democratic earmark that funded “community-development” projects. Analysts report that much of it went to "mortgage counseling."

Oh, they’ll do it.

The libs will adore him. They already do. He was a speaker at the DNC and he has Charisma.

It’s what got Rubio elected - that and he speaks Spanish as a first language

That is all that’s necessary. The libs won’t need to know anything else. He will further the destruction of our culture by hating America.

Legal Insurrection: Mayor Julian Castro of San Antonio had less responsibility than Mayor Sarah Palin of Wasilla

Washington Examiner

"The office of mayor carries with it no executive authority. Castro's website says he has "focused on attracting well-paying jobs in 21st century industries, positioning San Antonio to be a leader in the New Energy Economy." Castro's site says he has also "brought a sense of urgency" to urban revitalization, and has created something called SA2020, "a community-wide visioning effort turned nonprofit that has galvanized thousands of San Antonians around a simple, but powerful vision for San Antonio -- to create a brainpower community that is the liveliest city in the nation."

Creating visioning efforts, senses of urgency, and brainpower communities brings the mayor far, far less money than the city manager. "The mayor's job pays $20 a meeting plus a one-time $2,000 fee, so I basically make $4,000 a year," Castro told San Antonio television station KENS last year.

Castro's big important job as mayor of SA is hardly anything more than a ceremonial position as Town Crier.

A “Castro” would be a great running mate for Hillary.
Right after a “Marx”, “Lenin”, or a “Hitler”.

If La Raza gets their way and Aztlan secedes...
Does Aztlan still vote in US elections?
Who sends the checks, DC or Mexico City?
Will human sacrifice be tolerated, or mandatory?
Open border with US?
Official language?
Dual citizenship with US?
Will Aztlan be “semi-autonomous” where no US taxes are paid, but benefits continue?
Can Castro be president of both US and Aztlan?

Julian Castro is the 21st Century version of Henry Cisneros. It will not turn out well for the Democrats.
