  • Don’t Underestimate Dumb Voters’ Appetite For Idiot Leftist Politicians

    You should not for a moment fail to appreciate the risk posed to your freedom by left-wing It-Fascists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Beto O’Rourke. There’s an undeniable appeal of this kind of Potemkin Politician for the kind of morons that the Democrats count on at the ballot box. Sure, the Nitwit Naïf is ridiculously ignorant and dumb – she knows nothing and demonstrates no capacity to learn anything. Sure, Tex Kennedy is a meat puppet dancing on the strings held by his masters. But this is the same country where the voters elected Barack Obama, twice. They can absolutely win...
  • Santorum: Dems have a chance in 2020 if they pick someone ‘unexpected’

    Former GOP Sen. Rick Santorum (Pa.) on Sunday said he believes the Democratic Party could win in 2020 if they pick someone "unexpected" as their party's presidential nominee. Santorum, asked if there were any potential Democratic candidates he was afraid of, pointed to previous presidential contests, saying all of the Democratic candidates who won were "not the favorite" at the time. "When the Democrats win, they pick someone unexpected or someone who’s not the favorite," Santorum, a CNN analyst, said on CNN's "State of the Union." "[Former Presidents] Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Jimmy Carter," he listed. "When they pick [failed...

    U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz with three other senators introduced a bill Wednesday that is aimed at fully funding a wall along the US-Mexico border... The WALL Act would fully fund the border wall by closing existing loopholes that provide illegal immigrants with federal benefits and tax credits, without affecting the benefits and tax credits used by Americans.
  • Beto O’Rourke, who’s pondering a 2020 presidential bid, met with Barack Obama

    Washington Post ^ | December 4, 2018 | Matt Viser
    Beto O’Rourke, weighing whether to mount a 2020 presidential bid, met recently with ­Barack Obama at his post- presidency offices in Washington. The meeting, which was held Nov. 16 at the former president’s offices in Foggy Bottom, came as former Obama aides have encouraged the Democratic House member to run, seeing him as capable of the same kind of inspirational campaign that caught fire in the 2008 presidential election. The meeting was the first sign of Obama getting personally involved in conversations with O’Rourke, who, despite his November loss in a U.S. Senate race in Texas, has triggered more recent...
  • Beto Has a Path to the Presidency: Lincoln’s

    Politico ^ | December 1, 2018 | Mark Perry
    Of all the places in Washington, Beto O’Rourke chose to run to the Lincoln Memorial. Jogging through an early winter storm in the capital the week following his loss in the race for U.S. Senate, O’Rourke found himself, gimpy knee and all, running up the steps of the majestic monument to the 16th president. There, he wrote in a Medium post, he paused to read the words of Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address. Suddenly, his knee stopped hurting—as if Honest Abe’s words had a special healing power (but “maybe it just needed to fully warm up,” he wrote).

    Are the editors of Politico Magazine even aware of what they have previously published? One has to ask that question since a mere six weeks ago, that periodical published an article by Jack Shafer mocking the the notion of Beto O'Rourke idolatry in the media called "Stop the Press Before It Profiles Beto O’Rourke Again." So what did Politico Magazine do on December 1? It hyped O'Rourke as another Lincoln. I kid you not. Before we dive into Beto as Abe idolatry, let us look at some excerpts from when Politico mocked such silly puffery provided by NewsBusters' Executive Editor, Tim...

    Beto O’Rourke is calling for the removal of a controversial Confederate plaque hanging in the Texas State Capitol building, tweeting on Tuesday to “take it down today.” The plaque contains the Children of the Confederacy’s creed, which is a statement that pledges “to study and teach the truths of history (one of the most important of which is, that the War between the States was not a rebellion, nor was its underlying cause to sustain slavery).”

    Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke is changing his tune about the possibility of running for president in 2020. Prior to his narrow loss in the Texas US Senate race to Republican Ted Cruz, O'Rourke had repeatedly insisted he would not run for president. Now, he's leaving the door open. He said Monday he will finish his term in the House in January and focus with his wife and children on "being together as a family" until then.

    It should tell us something about her home country that a mother is willing to travel 2,000 miles with her 4-month old son to come here. Should tell us something about our country that we only respond to this desperate need once she is at our border. So far, in this administration, that response has included taking kids from their parents, locking them up in cages, and now tear gassing them at the border. People are leaving violent countries where they fear for their lives. Without money, they are subsisting on hope for their kids, for themselves, that they can...

    Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said “under no circumstances” should the so-called migrant caravan be allowed to cross into the United States. Partial transcript as follows: BRENNAN: You were very critical of the Obama administration for taking action via executive fiat as you said, you called it dangerous. This week President Trump on immigration has issued orders bypassing Congress to restrict how migrants crossing the border illegally can claim asylum. Are you OK with that now? CRUZ: Well I’m still studying this specific immigration order, but I’ll tell you look, here’s my view on executive...

    Our long national nightmare is over, the midterms have ended. Now our new long national nightmare begins as the battle starts for the presidency in 2020. I know the last thing you want to hear about is more campaigning, but it’s going to happen no matter what, so we might as well mock it. Here is a look at some of the Democrats who are rumored to be running to challenge President Trump in two years. Elizabeth Warren: She checks a lot of boxes liberals love – she’s a woman and she’s a minority (when it’s convenient for her). She...

    Take courage, President Trump supporters, while you have the hope of better days because of the president you elected, all the Democrats have to go on with the 34 seats mega millions bought them, is HATE The Robert Mueller III special counsel pinko puppets are already threatening to have mega subpoenas slapped on President Donald Trump, as a result of the seats they gained in yesterday’s Midterm elections. Problem is they had nothing but the cowardly Christopher Steele’s dirty dossier as evidence of Russia-Trump collusion going into the Midterm race— and still nothing two expensive years later.

    Project Veritas dropped an undercover video earlier Tuesday showing election officials admitting “tons” of non-citizens are voting in Texas. O’Keefe’s undercover video caught the attention of Texas Governor Gregg Abbott. “This will be investigated,” Abbott said of the non-citizens being encouraged to vote by election officials. In the video, a Project Veritas undercover journalist asked a Texas election official if her “DREAMer” boyfriend can vote as long as he is registered to vote and has a driver’s license. “Yeah okay” the election official responded. “If he has his ID that’s all he needs. If he’s registered,” the election official said...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) fended off Democrat challenger Robert Francis O’Rourke to win re-election in a high-profile Senate race Tuesday, but establishment media pundits, Hollywood celebrities, and liberal activists did not lose hope — they had now moved on to dreams of “Beto 2020.” Cruz finished a surprising second in the 2016 Republican presidential primary and began the Senate race as a prohibitive favorite. However, O’Rourke visited fiercely conservative parts of the state that his party had long since given up on, while shattering fundraising records despite shunning donations from outside political groups and pollster advice. Cruz argued that his...

Sorry for the F-bomb," Williams said after the remark. "We have no control of what's in the concession speeches." Fox News and CNN were not broadcasting O'Rourke's concession speech.

    Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas outperformed pro-abortion Democratic challenger Rep. Beto O’Rourke and won a Senate victory despite O’Rourke raking in unprecedented campaign contributions and a love-affair from the mainstream media. The abortion activist had raised nearly $40 million in the third quarter of 2018, smashing the all-time record for most raised in one quarter, previously set at $22 million. Comparatively, Cruz raised roughly $12 over the same period. After O’Rourke revealed he wouldn’t be sharing any of the war chest he amassed with the other Democrats in tight races, Cruz took a jestful shot at the congressman, saying...
