“I’m likely to do it. I have a strong vision for the country. I believe that our country’s going in the wrong direction and that it needs new leadership. I’ll make a final decision after November, but I’m inclined to do it.”
– Julian Castro in a recent Rolling Stone interview on his probability of a presidential run in 2020
My fellow Floridians please listen up…we cannot vote Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum in as our next governor for some very important key reasons. Reason number one…his platform. If elected Andrew Gillum has promised to make Florida a sanctuary state; he’s promised a one billion dollar business tax increase (which equates to roughly 40%) to help fund his “medicare for all” nonsense thus forcing many existing businesses to close and others to stay clear of Florida; he wants to do away with school choice policies; he’s joined forces with those wishing to abolish I.C.E. and also stated he wants to do away with Florida’s ‘Stand Your Ground’ law; he supports either taking our guns away or at the very least to heavily restrict their ownership; he wants even stricter environmental regulations; and he’s part of the impeach Trump crowd.
Also, under Gillum’s mayorship, Tallahassee…Florida’s capital city…has garnered the dubious distinction of being number one in the state in crime, with Mr. Mayor doing little except to hire a few more officers to try and help solve the still escalating crime numbers, ignoring both police and sheriff’s departments numerous suggestions on how to permanently bring those numbers down.
But more importantly is reason number two…as I believe we Floridians are being “played” by gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum and his handlers. How so…by his using Florida as a stepping stone to becoming Julian Castro’s running mate in 2020, and that this entire scenario is being orchestrated by Barack HUSSEIN Obama and funded by George Soros. And why do I believe this…because the Democrat hierarchy believe that a minority driven ticket might be the only way they can retake the White House in 2020.
Now let’s add in that Julian Castro recently announced that he’s “likely” to challenge Donald Trump in the next presidential go round. And with Castro being all about minority entitlement as is Gillum just imagine what a team these two characters would make…the socialism-wanting Hispanic former mayor of San Antonio, Texas and former HUD secretary in the Obama administration who still has some questionable actions in his background concerning seven-figure “seed money” for his first mayoral campaign (If chosen for HUD, Julian Castro’s work, big payday could face scrutiny)…coupled with the socialism driven, gun control touting, currently under an F.B.I investigation concerning ethics violations (Mayor Gillum faces ethics complaint over NYC trip) black mayor of Florida’s capital city…a minority “twofer” jackpot if ever there was one.
And a ticket of this make up would surely see the ever increasing minority vote going solely into the Democrat’s column for we all know that when push comes to shove no matter a person’s qualifications or lack thereof, color and ethnicity unfortunately does still matter to many and does so to such a degree that it becomes the sole deciding factor in how they will cast their vote.
Now let that reality really sink in folks…the reality that the ever increasing minority vote would be locked up for the Democrats based for the most part on skin color and ancestral origins alone with white liberals joining in on that vote as a one-sided minority ticket would serve their progressive agenda well. And with two socialist leaning candidates promising both illegals and society’s what I call “sponges” even more “free stuff” in exchange for their votes…in other words “redistribution of wealth”…they and others of the “gimme-gimme you owe me sorts” would flock to the polls in record numbers, while it’s we on the other side of the political aisle who would be footing the bill via tax increases to the nth degree.
And while some will counter by saying that in no way would two southern males ever comprise a presidential ticket…neither a Democrat nor a Republican ticket…I say it indeed could happen especially on the Democrat side when and if they felt that demographics alone could be used to their advantage. And for the Democrats the 2020 presidential election if played right, as in if they can garner the vast majority of minority black and Hispanic votes…via a Castro/Gillum ticket… they unfortunately do stand a chance of taking the White House back.
Yet another reason why voter I.D. must, before the next presidential election. become the law of our land for if the ever-growing number of illegals continue to be allowed to vote; if the dead still make it to the polls or have their vote tallied via absentee ballots; and if Democrats are still voting more than once; the outcome of said election truly might not be to our liking.
And with Hillary Clinton and her infamous blame game having basically ruined the Democrats chances of getting another woman to this time lead a successful Democrat presidential ticket, and with 2020 fast approaching and their supposed woman front runner (MA) Sen. Elizabeth Warren having been exposed as a fake Native America (read about that in Elizabeth Warren…A 100% Real, Genuine Fake Indian); the other women contenders of note like Kamila Harris who is but a grandstanding joke as easily seen by her theatrics during the Kavanaugh hearings; and debate hedging N.Y. Sen. Kristin Gillibrand all might not be the Democrat masses palatable cup of liberal tea.
So why not two men from the south if their ethnicity would serve the Democrats and their agenda well…with color and ethnicity in the 2020 election being way more important to them than where logistically the candidates chosen come from.
And know that I have been warning folks for years about Julian Castro, his agenda, and his foibles. Please read my previous article, If Not Hillary Then Who: The Truth Exposed – Part 2, to see just what I’m talking about for this man…a man still being groomed to someday be president by Obama’s very handlers…was in serious contention to be Hillary Clinton’s running mate, and that alone should tell you a lot about the man.
Briefly, Hillary Clinton so wanted uber liberal HUD Secretary Julian Castro as her running mate and Julian Castro wanted desperately to be her running mate. Young, dynamic, and most importantly Hispanic, Castro would have been the perfect pick to bring in the Hispanic and millennial vote. But as the decision was at the cusp of being made in his favor, Castro committed a big no-no when he violated the Hatch Act…an act that prohibits federal employees from engaging in political activity while in their administrative role. And this Julian Castro most assuredly did when in an April 2016 interview with Katie Couric, Castro said he was supporting Hillary Clinton’s presidential aspirations while discussing HUD programs in his official capacity as its secretary..
And that ended a Hillary/Castro 2016 ticket but left open the possibility of a Castro run in 2020 for Julian Castro knows well that the masses have short memories when it comes to political faux-pas, especially if it relates to someone they consider “of color.”
And so now we have entering center stage a dynamic young black man who is hoping to become Florida’s first black governor…a black man with faux-pas of his own…including the fact that as per public records he failed to disclose (until caught) two mortgages on legally required financial disclosure forms going back to 2014, along with the above stated current ethics violations and possibly more…faux-pas he hopes the masses will overlook now in 2018, for if he wins and then with having two years of governorship under his belt, Andrew Gillum could easily become Julian Castro’s 2020 Vice Presidential running mate…a minority dream team from liberal hell.
And these two men with decidedly socialist agendas have already formed a mutual admiration society of sorts. Not only did Julian Castro hold a fundraiser for then primary candidate Andrew Gillum, but he also has now officially endorsed Gillum in his Florida governors run. Saying of Castro’s endorsement, “It is an honor to have his endorsement as we continue sharing our vision for a Florida that works for everyone,” more than hints at Julian Castro also having a specific “vision” for Florida…a scary thought indeed for maybe a foundation for a future presidential ticket might just have been born.
“The world can feel scary enough, without so-called leaders inciting fear for political gain.”
– Andrew Gillum speaking about then candidate Donald Trump at the 2016 DNC Nominating Convention.
And so Andrew Gillum, yet but another once community organizer whose rise to national prominence happened only after he spoke at the 2016 Democratic National Convention…parallels Obama’s infamous rise to power which only happened after he gave the Key Note speech at Billy-Boy’s second nominating convention. And now he has Julian Castro…an avowed socialist with presidential aspirations whose mother just happens to be one of the founders of the militant anti-American chicano group La Raza…and who not so coincidentally also gave a key speech at the same convention in 2016…in his corner.
But the question is why would Julian Castro…the man who serves on the board of Voto Latino and a man who thinks predominately in terms of brown and black entitlement alone…come out publicly in support of a man whose governor’s race might or might not go as hoped for? Because if it does go as hoped for Andrew Gillum then in his position as governor could help a then presidential candidate Julian Castro turn the swing state of Florida ‘blue,’ and would do so most assuredly if together they ran on the presidential ticket in 2020…a scary thought indeed.
So planning, or should I say “plotting,” ahead of time never hurts, but I’m sure a presidential ticket with what amounts to two socialists comprising it would have our Founders and Framers turning over in their graves as their beloved republic, if this ticket won, would become not even a “pure” democracy but a socialist supposed utopia where we Americans would all be equal…equal at the bottom rung of the economic ladder that is.
And so the bottom line is this…Andrew Gillum…the progressives darling and Mr. “If we don’t kick Republicans out of office they’ll repeal Obamacare,” whose main “in the open campaign financier” is uber liberal California billionaire Tom Steyer, is not someone we need as Florida’s next governor…his above stated platform and agenda alone should tell all Floridians that.
But of paramount importance is the fact that Andrew Gillum appears to be in the process of being “groomed” for “bigger things” than just Florida. And his recent debate on CNN with his Republican opponent Ron DeSantis showed him to be virulently anti-Trump and an Obama clone…whose endorsement he also has…proving that the only way to stop those “bigger things”…as in a 2020 VP slot and possibly the top slot in 2028…is to stop him from becoming governor now. Without the governorship under his belt the chances of Andrew Gillum being the Democrats VP nominee in 2020 or beyond go way down to almost zero, and the one thing our country surely does not need now or in the future is Obama part 2, especially when part one could very well be Julian Castro, a very politically dangerous man in his own right.
