Julian Castro blew it at his Fox News
town hall yesterday

The series of town halls that Fox News is conducting for Democrat presidential candidates who take advantage of its generous offer of air time have been fairly interesting. Faced with moderators who do nor hug them the way Rachel Maddow did in a 2016 presidential debate, the strong ones have an opportunity to demonstrate their skills while the weak ones fall back on canned answers of dubious relevance to the questions asked. I was interested in seeing what Julian Castro had to offer yesterday at the town hall in Tempe, Arizona, where, we were told it was well over a hundred degrees outside.


This moron is pro-illegal. Did anyone SERIOUSLY expect a different response???

When in San Antonio, on a walk, be careful you don’t step on a steaming pile of Julian Castro.

Yeah, crime happens and we have enough home grown criminals that we don't need to add illegal aliens to the mix. You know, instead of fixing the criminal justice system, what we really need is a victim justice system.

His twin brother, a Congresscritter from San Antonio, ain't much better. Did Yoolian have a bottle of booze next to him? He's pretty good at putting them down, especially if someone else is buying rounds.

Back in the 1960s and 1970s, there was a man who called himself Uncle Sam, and dressed like Uncle Sam, who ran for president regularly. If he were running today, I suppose Fox would give him a town hall. Gus Hall ran for president on the Communist Party ticket. MSNBC would surely give him a town hall. I watched part of the Castro thing, and felt sorry for him. Implicit in his response on illegal immigrant crime was that the young woman who is raped and murdered by an illegal would have been raped and murdered by someone else. A sad creature. Who looks like Kato from the Pink Panther movies.

I thought maybe FOX would hold this TownHall in the Food Court. So, there would at least be a crowd in the background.

Don't kid yourselves. The Dems have found their man. Yet again, a keynote speaker of the Dem National Convention. His mother was a founding member of La Raza Unida, supporter of courthouse shooting Communist Angela Davis, and on the FBI watch list. (La Raza wants to give back "their stolen heritage" to the Mexicans. This "homeland," which they are calling Aztlan, would amount to seven whole U.S. states, with parts of others. Some maps of the desired "homeland" include Oregon, Idaho, and Colorado. She was a founding member and party chairman for Bexar (San Antonio) County, Texas. She is quoted by the NYT as saying the men at the Alamo were "nothing but crooks, drunkards, and slaveholding imperialists." She never married Julian's father, since he was busy living with his wife and five children. Her own mother was not married. I could say something about glass houses, but I'll pass. Julian is right into the reprehensible PC "re-imagine" movement to essentially destroy the Alamo's status as a shrine to heroes. He has indicated support for allowing the United Nations to manage the Alamo. With a female VP on the ticket (preferably black), he could skate through the primaries and, getting the white guilt vote, move along to the White House, probably easier than Obama did. His wife and children are photogenic. His mother will be quiet. He'll sell himself as a moderate who will "bring the country together." Or . . . he could run as the very elderly Biden's VP.

They are all throw away candidates, even Biden the Bookmark, so it really doesn't matter. To spend anytime keeping up on who is passing who is meaningless,so will their actual delivery be as they edge to their finals. Best to focus on how Trump is changng the world order.

There was a time when the news media prided itself on being a WATCH DOG to protect the people from the wiles and corrupt ways of government politicians who were out for themselves instead of representing the people. There was a time when the news media EXPOSED corruption, instead of promoting the corrupt through constant propaganda. There was a time when the American people were wise to these characters, and could spot a PHONY just by what they said and what they did, and would dismiss people like Castro out of hand. The constant drone and drumbeat of the media pushing an agenda instead of FULLY REPORTING the facts to the public have so confused the average person that things which we KNOW are WRONG are presented and the way things are now, some sort of 'new normal' to be accepted without question. There are too many candidates out there and the media presents them all, but make no mistake--they have an agenda and are FORCING the candidates to do things the way THEY want or lose precious free campaign coverage-- Joe Bite Me has just been formed and flaked before your eyes!! It will be interesting to see how things turn out as they all try to move the others out of the media spotlight by proposing outrageous things . Castro is about even with the one-time media sensation, Robert Francis O'Rourke... neither candidate is the second coming of our Lork, but the media will do what they can to make it seem that way!

Who in the wide, wide world of sports is Julian Castro? Oh, I know who he is, but what I don't know is why he would ever consider himself a presidential candidate. Is he running for dog catcher in San Antonio and trying to raise his profile there?

Sarah Sanders was a complete diamond in speaking for and defending the man we elected, President Trump. She was so good it is hard to think who could replace her. She was poised, ladylike, on target, and could punch back as hard as the drive-bys and Democratic-operatives-with-bylines in the press could deliver. She got rid of bee ess the press had long since dismissed as unserious, such as the presidential press conference, something they are suddenly mourning big crocodile tears about as they look for something to criticize her.

Apparently not enough people are convinced that we have only 12 years left before the world ends. The first brand identity of the doomsday cultists had it that “global warming” was going to kill us all. But alas, it produced laughable claims, such as the “end of snow,” that were endlessly refuted by Mother Nature. And there was the humiliating “Gore Effect,” described by Urban Dictionary as: The phenomenon that leads to unseasonably cold temperatures, driving rain, hail, or snow whenever Al Gore visits an area to discuss global warming. Hence, the Gore Effect.

Blinded by righteous indignation and hatred of President Donald Trump, Democrats treat rules and protocol as mere inconveniences when it comes to attacking Trump. All of which made for an interesting exchange on the House floor Tuesday when a Republican member clashed with a colleague from across the aisle. In an apparent effort to skirt the rules, Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, read an alleged constituent letter that described the president as a “mobster, a con man, a gangster” and said he was “sexually condescending to women.” After Fudge read the entire letter, the presiding officer on the House floor, Rep. Marc Veasey, D-Texas,

Former CIA Director John Brennan was trotted out Tuesday night by MSNBC’s Chris Matthews to help shore up former Joe Biden new campaign narrative that President Donald Trump is an existential threat to the country. In the process, he suggested that the president may be “turning a blind eye” to Russian interference in our electoral system because it may help with his reelection efforts. In making such an outlandish remark, Brennan went so far as to charge that Trump may stand in the way of the intelligence community’s efforts to respond to Moscow’s meddling.

Rep. Jim Jordan unloaded on Democrats during a House Oversight and Reform Committee hearing Wednesday, asking what they were so afraid of in asking a citizenship question on the 2020 Census. The top Republican on the House Oversight Committee called out his Democrat colleagues for wanting to push through a hearing before the Supreme Court rules on the issue. “Why don’t they want to know? That’s the fundamental question: why don’t the Democrats want to know how many citizens are in the country?” the Ohio Republican asked.

Trump the deviant 4 replies

President Trump is a deviant, of that there is no argument. On that, Democrats, NeverTrumpers and Trump supporters all can agree – and by “deviant”, I simply mean that he varies from the accepted norms. Now whether you see this as a good thing or a bad thing is a matter worthy of discussion, but one thing is true, Trump represents a significant departure from presidential culture of the past 50 years. Trump’s deviancy threatens the left because it shows people there is another, more direct way to get things done than the mutated and metastasized puffery practiced by the powdered wig disciples of a process of indirect diplomacy

The practice of opposing a party rebuttal to the president's State of the Union speech was started in 1966, when Republicans Senator Everett Dirksen and Rep. Gerald Ford responded to Democrat President Lyndon Johnson's State of the Union on television. Since then, it has become an annual event. Until 2019, all previous responses were delivered by contemporary senators, representatives, or governors. Since 2011, there have been two responses — one in English and one in Spanish. And here I was, under the illusion that English is our national language. So how did Stacey Abrams, an ungracious loser with no national elective office,

There are a lot of strange-birds in politics, but no one has ever seen anything quite like the positions being warbled by the 2020 gaggle of presidential candidates, a group of strange-birds being labeled “The 2020 Gang” by some observers. We have entered a political era when people with no substantive credentials and few life successes believe they are qualified to be the leader of the free world and to govern your life. This era started last decade when a little-known man became president, whose primary real-life achievement had been to run a rag-tag street pack in Chicago.

 CNN biased and hypocritical? Never that! Despite being maligned day in and day out by pesky conservatives over its alleged bias, anybody with common sense and reason knows that CNN is a wholly “fair and balanced” network … Just kidding! CNN is arguably a heavily partisan network whose contributors, anchors and pundits have no qualms about openly displaying their pro-Democrat, anti-Republican bias. Take for instance the glaringly biased chyron that appeared on CNN early Tuesday morning after 2020 contender former Vice President Joe Biden released a transcript of what he intended to say during an event in Iowa later that afternoon:

If the election were held today, President Donald J. Trump would be re-elected. The economy is going strong, unemployment is at record levels, dipping below four percent, and paychecks are bigger. Consumer and small business confidence have reached their highest levels in decades. This, plus the power of incumbency and Democrats not really having a solid candidate, means Trump nabs a second term. Even Democratic strategist have to admit this (via The Hill):
