Trouble: Julian Castro Dismisses 2020 Campaign Staff in New Hampshire, South Carolina

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.05.19

Fading presidential candidate Julian Castro is reportedly laying-off his entire campaign staff in New Hampshire and South Carolina this week; suggesting the end may be near for the Texas Democrat.

“The former San Antonio, Texas mayor who later served as Housing secretary in then-President Barack Obama’s cabinet will now focus his campaign on Iowa, which kicks off the nominating calendar, and Nevada, which votes third. The news – first reported by Politico – was confirmed early Tuesday by Fox News with a source close to the Castro campaign. The small staffs in both New Hampshire and South Carolina were notified on Monday,” reports Fox News.

“The move by the Castro campaign comes just a few days after it announced on Friday that it brought in $800,000 in the last 10 days of October, a haul Castro had said was necessary to continue his uphill bid for the Democratic nomination,” adds Fox.

The news comes days after former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke announced the end of his 2020 presidential bid.

“Though it is difficult to accept, it is clear to me now that this campaign does not have the means to move forward successfully,” O’Rourke wrote in a Medium post on Friday. “My service to the country will not be as a candidate or as the nominee.”

“Our campaign has always been about seeing clearly, speaking honestly, and acting decisively. In that spirit: I am announcing that my service to the country will not be as a candidate or as the nominee,” posted O’Rourke on social media.

BIDEN’S BEDTIME? ‘Sleepy Joe’ Stumbles Through Rambling Speech, Stops to Ask ‘What Am I Doing?’

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.12.19

Democratic Frontrunner Joe Biden surprised his supporters during an unusual speech this week; stumbling through his prepared remarks and ultimately asking “What am I doing?” before exiting the stage.

“I would uhhhh, remind the world that we are the United States of America… They’ll be no more Charlottesville, no more Helsinki,” said Biden. “Donald Trump and the democrogs— demagogues around the world are learn— leaning into these forces.”

“We believe in free speech, that’s why I’ll end the global gag rule… What am I doing?” he asked.

The former Vice President’s poll numbers have dropped in recent weeks after the first Democrat debates in Miami.

“The NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey found that 26 percent of likely primary voters support Biden, while 19 percent support Warren. Trailing those two are Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Bernie Sanders(I-Vt.), who are each backed by 13 percent,” reports The Hill.

“The only other contenders who receive support from more than 1 percent of voters are South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg with 7 percent, former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke with 2 percent and former tech executive Andrew Yang with 2 percent,” adds the site.

Warren introduced a new plan this week that would essentially “decriminalize” those caught illegally entering the United States; raising serious new questions over the Democrat’s immigration policy heading into the 2020 election.

“Entering the country without authorization has always been a violation of civil immigration law, but thanks to a former segregationist Senator, it’s also a criminal violation. This additional criminal provision is totally unnecessary for border security, and for a century, it was rarely enforced. But since the early 2000s, it has been used to build and sustain a massive immigration detention complex,” writes Warren in an op-ed published by Medium.

“In 2016, over half of all federal criminal prosecutions were for immigration violations — more than prosecutions for terrorism, organized crime, hate crimes, or financial fraud. This obsessive focus ties up federal prosecutors and overwhelms federal courts. It’s costly and unnecessary. And under Trump, it has become increasingly abusive,” she adds.

ELECTION DEFLECTION: Warren Misses KEY VOTE on Emergency Border Funding for Photo Op at Detention Center

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.26.19

Senator Elizabeth Warren toured the Homestead Immigration Detention Center in Florida Wednesday where she complained about a lack of emergency border funding; ironically missing a pivotal vote on…emergency border funding.

“There are a lot of different ways that we get in the fight. And one of them is that you show up. I’m at the Homestead detention center today and I hope you’ll be watching,” posted Warren on social media.

 

“Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren missed Wednesday’s border-funding vote because she was outside Homestead migrant detention facility in Florida, complaining about the crisis at the border,” reports the Daily Caller.

Warren toured the Homestead Immigration Detention Center in Florida Wednesday; calling the facility a “stain on our country” while failing to mention the complex was opened by former President Obama in 2015.

“What is happening at Homestead to children, what is happening is a direct result of activities of the United States government. It’s wrong. It’s a stain on our country and we must speak out. We speak out as a people, we speak out as moral citizens, not just of the United States but of the world,” said Warren.

There’s just one problem for Elizabeth Warren. The Homestead Detention Center was opened by former President Barack Obama in 2015.

“The facility was first opened during the Obama administration, but immigration rights advocates say the Trump administration has stranded children there for longer periods by making it more difficult for them to be released to sponsors, usually parents or close relatives,” reports Reuters.

“The shelter opened under Barack Obama to hold children who were showing up to the U.S. border, mostly from Central American countries such as Honduras and El Salvador,” adds the Miami New Times.

Warren joined a handful of far-left politicians this week; saying it’s now time to “decriminalize” illegal border crossings into the United States.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., is the latest 2020 Democrat to be in favor of decriminalizing border crossing as the field of candidates continue to move left on immigration,” reports Fox News. “Following in the footsteps of former HUD Secretary Julián Castro, who was the first to call for the decriminalization of migrants who enter the United States at the border without proper documentation, Warren told the Huffington Post that she ‘agreed’ with him.”

“We should not be criminalizing mamas and babies trying to flee violence at home or trying to build a better future,” Warren said in a statement published on Tuesday.
