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.
DECISIVE VICTORY: Arizona Judge Rules State Senate Can Review 2.1 Million Ballots & Voting Software in Maricopa County
Friday morning, a Maricopa County Superior Court Judge gave the Trump Campaign and overall MAGA movement another small yet decisive victory in their ongoing legal battle in the 2020 Presidential Election. According to an article by the Associated Press, Judge Timothy Thomason ruled that the Arizona Senate can get access to 2.1 million voter ballots and voting machines from Maricopa County, Arizona’s most popular county which flipped Arizona from Trump to Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported on Maricopa County’s Board of Supervisors and their state of perpetual non-compliance with legally issued subpoenas by the Arizona Senate. It appears that today, Judge Thomason has officially ordered that non-compliance to end, and Maricopa County must allow the Senate to proceed with their investigation.
The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has previously argued that ballots should remain secret and not open to investigation. They see the subpoenas issued by the Senate as illegitimate and that they have no right to access the county’s voting hardware. In turn, the Senate and their legal team have argued that the constitution clearly gives the Legislature the responsibility to enforce the law and to maintain election integrity. It is the Senate’s role to ensure that Arizona elections are free, fair, and pure.
Judge Thomason seemingly agrees with the Senate on all fronts and has called the subpoenas “legal and enforceable”. In his ruling, the Judge also stated:
“There is no question that the Senators have the power to issue legislative subpoenas. The Subpoenas comply with the statutory requirements for legislative subpoenas. The Senate also has broad constitutional power to oversee elections. The Arizona legislature clearly has the power to investigate and examine election reform matters. Accordingly, the Senators have the power to subpoena material as part of an inquiry into election reform measures. As such, the Subpoenas have a proper legislative purpose. The Subpoenas also do not violate separation of powers principles. Production of the subpoenaed materials would not violate confidentiality laws.”
The rest of Judge’s Thomason’s ruling can be found here.
“We are thrilled and grateful that the judge was able to see the big picture in this whole issue,” said Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann. “That this has never been about overturning an election. This has always been 100% about voter integrity and finding the answers to all of our voters’ questions about the safety and security and validity of the Arizona electoral system.”
Maricopa County has been accused of committing mass voter fraud, discriminating against Trump voters and using hardware to manipulate votes for Joe Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported that former Maricopa County Treasurer Royce Flora had resigned from his office in disgust with the complacency Maricopa County played in the election fraud. Flora said that he plans to continue to push recall efforts against the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors for what he sees as crimes against the people of Maricopa County.
BREAKING: A judge ruled that the Arizona Senate can get access to 2.1 million ballots from Arizona’s most populous county so it can audit results of the 2020 election.
