Texas Democrat Julian Castro staked out his position as one of the most visible members of his party standing behind the idea of providing reparations to descendants of slaves in America, speaking in a town hall event live on CNN on Thursday night. The former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development is running for President.
Castro had previously proposed creating a “task force” that would merely study the potential for a reparations program, without expressly endorsing a policy outcome. His comments on Thursday possibly represented his strongest endorsement of a reparations program yet.
Possibly seeking to appeal to the electorally powerful African American demographic in the Democratic Primary, Castro seems to be the candidate most willing to endorse the concept of reparations, although he remains vague about what exactly descendants of slaves, who were emancipated 154 years ago in 1865, are going to get. Castro has attacked de facto Democratic frontrunner Bernie Sanders for his reluctance to take up the issue.
It’s no wonder Castro is extremely vague about any potential plan to make reparations to descendants of slaves- such an idea would be extraordinarily difficult to execute in policy. A great deal of Americans with family history dating back to the 1800’s and 1700’s are related to black individuals who were enslaved. It’s unclear if Castro would seek to provide cash payments exclusively to census-identifying African Americans.
There’s been a great deal of oppression throughout the history of humanity, and a considerable amount in the United States leveled out to slaves. Creating a standard in which the descendants of victimized individuals are entitled to reparations for wrongdoings that occurred more than 150 years ago could ostensibly entitle nearly everyone on the planet to compensation for historical crimes. 360,000 soldiers of the Union Army, who were almost entirely white, died in the Civil War to bring about an abolition of slavery and create a better future for the United States. It’s unlikely Castro’s call for reparations would recognize this sacrifice.
Castro may have been inspired to adopt ethnic-greviance politics from his mother, a political activist associated with the political party Raza Unida, or “United Race,” a revolutionary Chicano nationalist group seeking to organize Hispanics on the United States along ethnic lines.
President Trump Demands Georgia GOP Leaders Allow ‘Signature Verification Match’ to ‘Quickly and Easily Win the State’
Trump is not backing down.
President Donald Trump issued a tweet on Thursday morning in which he demanded that Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger ensure electoral integrity and police the dubious vote.
The “Republican” Governor of Georgia, @BrianKempGA, and the Secretary of State, MUST immediately allow a signature verification match on the Presidential Election. If that happens, we quickly and easily win the State and importantly, pave the way for a big David and Kelly WIN!

This comes at a time when the Republican Party establishment is desperate to circle the wagons around Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, who are facing off against Democrat challengers in a run-off election next month.
Patriotic attorney L. Lin Wood is under attack from GOP elites for telling Georgia Republicans to play hard ball with their leaders and refuse to help Republican victory in the state’s next election until they take concrete measures to overturn the steal.

There has been a coordinated effort from the top to stop the pressure campaign against the feckless Georgia GOP. Big League Politics reported on the whining rant of a Georgia electoral official earlier this week who begged President Trump to back off and allow the crooked vote to be approved without investigation:
Gabriel Sterling, a top official in the Georgia secretary of state’s office, released a whiny rant on Tuesday in which he lamented over the anger that is building against state Republican officials who are doggedly preventing electoral irregularities from being investigated.
“It’s all gone too far. All of it,” the Georgia election worker said. “Joe DiGenova today asked for Chris Krebs, a patriot who ran CISA, to be shot.”
“A 20-something tech in Gwinnett County today has death threats and a noose saying they should be hung for treason because she was transferring a report on batches,” he added.
This bum is calling for President Donald Trump to stop his quest to root out election fraud because of the hurt feelings of these snowflake bureaucrats.
“It has to stop! Mr. President, you have not condemned these actions or this language. Senators, you have not condemned this language or these actions. This has to stop! We need you to step up, and, if you’re going to take a position of leadership, show some,” the angry little man said.
He whined about the pressure that Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is receiving after becoming a nationally-reviled figure for stopping inquiry into Georgia’s corrupt electoral process.
“This is elections. This is the backbone of our democracy, and all of you who have not said a damn word are complicit in this. I can’t begin to explain the level of anger I have right now over this,” the triggered coward said. “And every American, every Georgian, Republican or Democrat alike, should have that same level of anger.”
He ended by blaming President Trump for his state’s own corrupt farce while calling for him to stop his quest to overturn the steal in order to protect culpable officials from imaginary violence.
“You have the rights to go through the courts. What you don’t have the ability to do, and you need to step up and say this, is stop inspiring people to commit potential acts of violence. Someone’s going to get hurt. Someone’s going to get shot, or someone’s going to get killed, and it’s not right,” he concluded.
President Trump’s push for electoral integrity is gaining momentum, and the Republican Party is killing itself by trying to put the breaks on transparency.
