BEIJING: Pastor Joe Castillo, who was born and raised on the mean streets of Southside Chicago, loves to get his groove on for Jesus in China. He's a former Chicago thug gangster, who reformed himself from a life of crime and drug addiction, to become a Pentecostal Evangelical minister at All Nations International Fellowship Church in the heart of Beijing. He's a devoted family man with a Chinese-born wife, Jade Wang, and they have two children.
Additionally, Pastor Joe is a fervent supporter of Sen. Ted Cruz (R.-Tx.) and prays everyday that Cruz will run for President in 2016. As a devout Christian conservative, Pastor Joe believes he has a mission to spread the word of God and insists that dancing would be his way to do that. Accordingly, he's recognized among his brethren in China as the 'Dancing for Jesus' minister.

Whenever President Barry Obama, narcissist-in-chief, travels outside the White House, he demands that Secret Service bring along 'special mirrors,' so that he can take a good look at himself constantly.

Rev. Al Sharpton really believes that former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is "dead broke" and she deserves to fly in supersonic private jets, since she's allegedly "American Royalty." He contends that flying first class on Delta Airlines is just "too ghetto" for the Clinton family.
NewsBusters reports that, "Appearing on Al Sharpton's MSNBC show this evening, Witherspoon defended Hillary against ancriticizing her for expensive private-jet travel billed to the campaigns of candidates for whom she made appearances. Witherspoon generated this gem: "they're the Clintons. They're American royalty. I don't want to see them flying on domestic Delta flights in first class. I mean, they were flying on Air Force One for eight years. How do you go from that to not staying on private jets and kind of having like that luxurious travel experience?"

Apparently, Hillary Clinton is preparing to open her Presidential campaign headquarters in the Wall Street-friendly confines of Westchester, N.Y.
According to Politico, "Hillary Clinton has yet to say for certain whether she’ll run for president, or for that matter, who her campaign manager or what her message would be. But this much she has settled on: If a second presidential campaign happens, it will not be run out of Washington, D.C."
House Minority Leader U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D.-Ca.) faces strong dissension from her fellow Congressional Democrats.
Politico reports that, "No Democrat is gearing up to challenge Nancy Pelosi in public, but behind the scenes some Democrats are saying it’s time for new blood at the leadership table ahead of 2016. Senior aides said they hope the party’s big losses Tuesday would encourage the minority leader to expand her network of allies and advisers to include a broader set of voices for crafting election messaging and congressional agendas."
