What's This?

Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has wooed Latinos with the strong backing of Housing Secretary and Urban Development, Julian Castro. The former mayor of San Antonio endorsed Clinton at a Latinos For Hillary event held on Thursday.


There had been the long running rumors that Castro will be Clinton’s running mate. The words grew louder Thursday at the event. But when asked whether she would make Castro her vice presidential pick, Clinton sent mixed signals.

“I am going to really look hard at him for anything because that’s how good he is,” Clinton said as quoted by The Dallas Morning News. She had all the nicest words for Castro and for his twin, brother, Congressman Joaquin Castro. The former secretary of state said the brothers were both top notch.

“I think really highly of him. I am thrilled to have his endorsement today,” Clinton said of the housing secretary. She added that he and his twin brother are among the best young leaders in America.

While both Clinton and Castro have yet to confirm possible a tandem, they are already being criticized for their partnership. Castro is described by Republican National Committee spokeswoman Ruth Guerra as another “ethically-challenged politician who is more concerned about self-promotion than governing.” She added that the young politician has no known record of accomplishments, has sketchy personal finances and has misused the taxpayer’s money. “Julian Castro’s endorsement will do nothing more than remind voters of Hillary’s similar record of scandals that have nearly toppled her campaign,” Guerra said as quoted by The Dallas Morning News.

In July, Castro dismissed the possibility of him running for the second most important seat in the White House. While he finds it flattering to be considered for the position, “there really is not anything to make of it,” Castro said according to a report from CNN. He explained further that the vice presidential seat is not something anybody can run for. “Nobody signs up for that. So I’m just gonna keep doing what I’m doing,” he said.

    Never thought I would ever
    hear or read that illegal aliens would get special preferences in being granted
    welfare services over Senior Citizens, disabled veterans and federal retirees? Elderly
    Americans didn’t precisely welcome
    Thursday’s announcement that millions of senior citizens won’t receive an
    increase in their Social Security checks next year, yet millions of illegal
    aliens who have poured through our open borders are accepted and those with
    children can collect cash payments for each of their progeny and associated
    welfare programs; but our Seniors are left out in the cold, neglected, along
    with our Veterans.

    no wonder handicapped Veterans must rely on charities and Senior Citizens can
    hardly survive on what the US government
    extends to them. This is amazingly sick when our retirees paid into the system
    all their lives, but the hordes of foreign national newcomers never paid one
    cent into Social Security and can collect large sums of money for each child as
    well as their adults working under the table. Those who do pay taxes are at the
    poverty end of the scale and receive it all back, while the children get
    reimbursements under child tax credits. Much of it fraudulent, but the
    government keeps paying. Its not to any lesser degree but with the illegal
    welfare and job seekers come over with criminals, who have killed innocent
    Americans with huge numbers cramming into our prisons. The crazy idiot governor
    Brown of California has rewarded illegal
    aliens with healthcare, citizen only entitlements and washed away the laws that
    we as Americans live by? The Liberal mainstream press discourager’s any honest commentary and uses
    flimsy excuses not to print, where lies convoluted
    with facts rhetoric that emanates from there headlines.

    Seniors should supply their vote for Donald Trump as there will be no pandering
    to illegal aliens, when he becomes President. They will be on fast repatriation
    out of the country and the massive amounts of money will go back to THE PEOPLE.
    Trumps allegiance is to the American people, not to corporate or industrial
    donors, which is blood money fed by lobbyists to the likes of the Clintons,
    Bush’s or the Sanders that has contaminated our Republic; remember Trump is
    paying his own way and the wealthy donors cannot touch him in anyway. Trump has
    received donations, but its nothing like the massive money pouring into both
    the career politicians campaigns.

    for seniors Citizens say years of small increases or no increase are eroding
    the buying power of benefits, regardless of the official inflation numbers. In
    a letter to members of Congress, the executive vice president of AARP argues
    that the inflation index reflects the spending patterns of workers — who tend
    to be younger and healthier than most people on Social Security. Nancy LeaMond
    writes, “Social Security recipients spend more of their monthly budget on
    health care, food and housing than do younger workers.” Yet families of
    illegal aliens can collect in California $600.00
    dollars for every offspring they birth, which is disgusting and certainly not
    what the framers of our nation had established in the US Constitution. The
    estimate of between $$100 billion and $$200 Billion dollars is drying up the
    reservoirs of federal, state and local coffers to serve foreigners. As far
    where I am concerned Americans are receiving the same old propaganda from both
    sides, when nothing will get done. There is now doubt in my mind that a
    entrepreneur and building mogul will create jobs more than American workers
    have seen since the time of Bill Clinton, minus Hillary. If Madam Hillary received no punishment for a
    lax treasonous acts concerning her email server, which if the FBI are
    investigating currently, yet others who in government are prosecuted for far less,
    this shows there is no accountability to the well-heeled, the cronyism within
    Washington and for the professional elites in the Democrat ranks?

    Along with President Barack
    Obama Liberal behavior and Socialist abilities
    comes an inopportune eagerness to devastate the quality of life for mega-millions
    of American families, Seniors and now the most helpless victims of Obamas
    illegal alien invasion. By advancing the unlimited immigration policies
    advocated by the Democratic morons and to some extent GOP Professional class
    and the Left Party’s Special Interest paymasters. That’s why grassroots ethical
    limited government constitutional Conservatives and Tea Party voters must call
    their Representative and demand they resist the election of Hlllary Clinton,
    Jeb Bush and the extreme Leftist Bernie Sanders as each have made statements
    that illegal immigrants/ migrants will be granted a path to citizenship.

    Not just Conservatives
    should recognize that the Leftists are bleeding America dry by their Tax and Spend Ideology,
    but Democrats and even Independents should be aware that America is on the wrong track. Democratic
    Senior Citizens need to rethink their voting power to stop illegal aliens
    collecting money on their years of work. Doesn’t matter if your skin is black,
    brown or brown, as with the Liberal philosophy we are in the same sinking ship.
    American Latino’s, Hispanics, American Indian, European Caucasian, Asian or
    other ethnicity, you need to vote for the peoples candidate–Donald Trump.

    Trumps wall and MANDATORY
    E-VERIFY will stop the lose of American jobs for all citizens and Legal
    Immigrants. A tracking system for visa Overstays, so they cannot enter our
    country and just disappear. No more Optional E-verify for the business and
    corporate owners and a need for a National ID card, so illegal aliens cannot
    steel our elections, specifically the Presidential election. This is the reason
    radical Liberals are fighting this identification in the courts, so they can
    employ illegal immigrants to vote.

    Donald Trump is
    exactly what America needs, who will begin
    the repatriation of illegal squatters in the United States. Americans must understand
    what presidential candidates mean when they say “anchor babies” and shows where
    candidates stand on birthright citizenship by directing viewers to USAnchorBabies.org
    where they can see and share the ad, sign the petition, and learn all
    candidates’ positions.

    Relevant points from the ad:

    300,000 babies are born to illegal
    immigrants each year in the U.S.

    Pew Hispanic Research estimates that 4,000,000
    people in the U.S. today were born
    here to illegal immigrants

    Under current policy interpretation, the
    baby gets full U.S. citizenship and
    taxpayer funded benefits

    The parents and their extended families
    then become eligible for citizenship and benefits, as well.

    Presidential candidates and the media can’t stop talking about anchor babies
    and birthright citizenship. CAPS Californians
    for Population Stabilization is the first national organization during this
    election cycle to lead the charge to educate the public about this
    antiquated and harmful policy through a national TV campaign.
