    Former HUD Secretary Julian Castro, now an MSNBC analyst, said Monday on “MSNBC Reports” said that there was a “quiet growing anger and impatience” in Texas over a lack of gun legislation to address mass shootings. Anchor Lawrence O’Donnell said, “What did you learn in Uvalde?”

    “Goya (food products) CEO Robert Unanue, whose great grandfather founded the company as a Spanish immigrant in 1936, praised President Trump last Thursday at a White House event, saying the U.S. is “truly blessed” to have a leader like him….The comments immediately sparked a backlash among Latino leaders, (italics mine) including former Housing Secretary Julián Castro and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez   (D-N.Y.), who called for a boycott of the brand,” reports The Hill. Result?“Goya Foods is doing GREAT. The Radical Left smear machine backfired, people are buying like crazy!” (President Trump tweet, July 15).  Indeed, some have rebranded the boycott as a...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Goya Foods is facing a swift backlash after its CEO praised President Donald Trump at White House event...."We all truly blessed, at the same time, to have have a leader like President Trump who is a builder," Unanue said standing at a podium beside Trump....As clips of Unanue’s remarks circulated on social media Thursday, Latinos and longtime supporters of Goya’s food slammed the CEO’s commendation of Trump, citing the president’s incendiary rhetoric and controversial policies aimed at minority communities and immigrants. By early Friday, “Goya” was still a top trending term on Twitter along with the...
  • Former HUD Secretary: Congress 'should invest $100B in direct rental assistance'

    Former Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Julián Castro said that Congress should pass direct rental assistance to avoid a housing crisis amid the coronavirus pandemic. The CARES Act, signed in late March, included a moratorium on evictions for tenants in units with federally-backed mortgages or other assistance who were unable to pay rent, which only applies to about a fifth of renters. The rest are subject to local eviction moratoria, which have begun to expire. Castro, who served under President Obama, told NBC News that Congress should allocate $100 billion in direct housing assistance. “We should invest $100 billion...

    Julian Castro – one of the final holdouts from the once-vast field of Democratic presidential candidates who had yet to endorse Joe Biden’s presidential campaign – on Tuesday formally backed the former vice president’s White House bid. Castro, a former San Antonio, Texas mayor who later served as Housing and Urban Development secretary in then-President Barack Obama’s Cabinet, tweeted that “Joe Biden recognizes the urgent need for real reform to address our broken policing system. I’m proud to support him, and I look forward to seeing these reforms become law, so that what happened to George Floyd never happens again.”...

    Sunday on MSNBC, former Housing Secretary Julian Castro called President Donald Trump’s coronavirus response “one of the worst failures in the history of our country.” When asked about the Trump administration pointing to China initially covering up the severity of the coronavirus, Castro said, “The Trump administration and this president is looking for any way that they can distract Americans from the fact that at the very moment when we needed strong leadership, when we needed a president and administration that was prepared to keep Americans safe, Trump and his administration failed, and they failed spectacularly.”

    “The rules seem to be changing a little bit,” Biden said. “You know, if I’m Julio Castro or if I’m a couple of other guys [they make exceptions]. They didn’t change the rules to allow me to stand on the debate stage. But now, the rule gets changed to put someone else on the debate stage in a primary that he can’t even run in.” . . . When an audience member claimed that the most recent debate only garnered 7.9 million viewers, Biden quipped: “Come on, guys!”

    Observing the comings and goings in both Iowa and New Hampshire this month, New York Times columnist David Leonhardt is clearly fed up. The system is rigged, broken and (obviously)… racist. With all that in mind, the author vented his frustrations at the Gray Lady, declaring once and for all that Iowa should never go first again. Let’s let him explain his reasoning. Right now, I’m as obsessed as anyone with the early-state polls. Yet I also want to use this moment to point out how bizarre the current system is — and to make a plea: The 2020 cycle...

    As we reported earlier, Joe Biden told Politico that he might consider two of his former competitors as his running mate if he were to win the Democratic nomination for president. Former Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday he would consider former presidential candidates Beto O’Rourke and Julián Castro to be a running mate or a member of his Cabinet if he is elected president.
  • Like Kamala Harris, Cory Booker Never Had A Chance

    The recent announcement that Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) suspended his campaign for President of the United States should come as no surprise even to his supporters. Booker, like Sen. Kamala Harris, never had a chance. They would tell you it was because of racism and sexism in the case of Harris. I beg to differ. On a side note, I love the word choice candidates use when they are quitting their quest for the White House. The word “suspended” is a temporary state. If a student is suspended from school, it means that at some point, the school will allow...

    Those racist Democrat voters just eliminated another protected minority candidate. – A year ago today, the conventional wisdom among the D.C./New York City pundit class held that the Democrat 2020 presidential nomination would most likely end up being won by one of Kamala Harris, Irish Bob O’Rourke or Cory Booker. As of today, all three formerly leading candidates are out of the race with the exit Monday morning that Booker is done. Yeah, the Senator from New Jersey only officially announced he was “suspending” his campaign, but c’mon, we all know he’s done, and so does he. And thus, those...

    Former Obama administration housing chief Julián Castro is endorsing Elizabeth Warren’s presidential bid, saying the Massachusetts senator is “the most qualified, best-equipped candidate to win the nomination” and defeat President Donald Trump. In an online video posted Monday featuring the two former 2020 White House rivals, Castro tells Warren, “No one is working harder than you.” The pair had remained friendly during months of campaigning. Castro, also the former mayor of San Antonio, dropped out of the presidential race last week. The Iowa caucuses that kick off the Democratic primary are less than a month away. Warren’s campaign announced minutes...
  • 'Cancel Culture' Candidates Don't Make the Cut in Democratic Primary

    WASHINGTON -- Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro announced Thursday that he was bowing out of the 2020 Democratic primary. The only reason to notice or care is that Castro was one of the more shrill candidates, so it's good that he never found purchase in the crowded field and hence had to "suspend" his campaign. Like Kamala Harris, the California Democratic senator who dropped out in December, Castro has been part of the left's "cancel culture" that seeks to silence those with differing views rather than to debate in the marketplace of ideas. Harris tried to stand...

    Former Housing secretary Julian Castro officially ended his bid for the Democratic nomination for president on Thursday after a lackluster showing in the polls. “It’s with profound gratitude to all of our supporters that I suspend my campaign for president today. I’m so proud of everything we’ve accomplished together. I’m going to keep fighting for an America where everyone counts—I hope you’ll join me in that fight,” he said in a statement. One thing Castro fought for extensively was for the ability to kill babies in abortions up to birth. Ironically he fought to stop euthanizing cats and dogs but...
