Department of the Interior sued by environmentalists

  1. Trump Administration Will ‘Shed Light’ On A Secretive Practice That Costs Taxpayers Millions Of Dollars

A 15 May 2019 Daily Caller article outlines Trump’s plans to “shed light” on Obama-era practices styled to benefit environmentalists willing to game the system.

The Interior Department will publicly list attorneys’ fees paid out, often to environmental activist groups, for legal settlements, according to a recent memo from Principal Deputy Solicitor Daniel Jorjani.

Jorjani’s memo states the Interior Department will develop a webpage within 30 days to publicly list details of legal settlements and cases, which the agency says is a big step in bringing sunshine to a non-transparent practice that the public is largely unaware is happening.

“This is a big deal that will shed light on the millions of dollars the DOI pays out every year in attorneys’ fees” under federal laws, an Interior Department official said in an email.

“This is your tax money and only by shining a light on this process can you decide if it is being put to good use,” the official said.

The memo was signed May 10, but made public Wednesday. Jorjani issued the memo in response to a 2018 order from Interior Secretary David Bernhardt while he served former Secretary Ryan Zinke’s number two. Zinke resigned earlier this year and has since been replaced by Bernhardt as head of the Interior Department.

Environmental groups have been particularly successful using “citizen suits” to sue the federal government into taking an action, then getting taxpayers to pay their attorneys’ fees. A 2016 Daily Caller News Foundation investigation found federal agencies paid out $49 million for 512 citizen suits filed under three major environmental laws during the Obama administration.

This certainly has shades of Democrat dirty dealings, the legacy of Obama scandals, and other unsavory issues on the left. With all of the left’s problems with capitalism, this certainly shows that they have no problems with gaming the system and using crony capitalism.


Nikki-Haley-Venezuela

  1. ‘Cowardice’: Nikki Haley Takes Aim At Ocasio-Cortez, Omar And Sanders Over Venezuela

In a second 15 May 2019 Daily Caller article, former UN ambassador Nikki Haley calls out the reluctance of fake socialists (you know, the ones who have million-dollar royalties and three homes or three-figure salaries and exclusive apartments that they don’t share with the masses) to face the reality of socialism in Venezuela.

Former Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley sharply criticized three prominent Democrats — Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders — for going soft on Venezuela’s socialist dictatorship.

“On the fringes of the left, celebrity politicians refuse to condemn [Venezuelan dictator Nicolas] Maduro. Worse, some have actually embraced him,” Haley wrote in a Monday post for Stand For America, her new political organization.

Haley ticked through the responses from Ocasio-Cortez, Omar and Sanders, taking shots at each one.

Ocasio-Cortez dodged when asked if Maduro was a legitimate ruler. “A simple ‘no’ would have sufficed,” commented Haley.

Considering the fact that AOC does not understand the difference between socialism and capitalism (as demonstrated by the following video), it shouldn’t be hard to convince thinking liberals to consider the benefits of the system that has lifted more people from poverty worldwide.

When you compare Bernie Sander’s “Democrat(ic) Socialism” to the socialism that wrecked Venezuela, you’ll find mirror copies shared by Bernie and Venezuela. Both Bernie and Venezuela went for government-owned banking. Both Bernie and Venezuela went for universal healthcare. Most importantly, both Bernie Sanders and the socialists of Venezuela would rather that the people not be able to defend themselves with guns.

In retrospect, that did not work out very well for the people of Venezuela.

us-weekly-jobless-claims-fall-more-than-expected

  1. Jobless claims fall more than expected

A 15 May 2019 Reuters article points out how economic factors have worked in favor of anyone with a business. Therefore, this works well for non-socialists (non-Democrats).

The number of Americans filing applications for unemployment benefits fell more than expected last week, pointing to sustained labor market strength that should underpin the economy as growth slows.

Initial claims for state unemployment benefits dropped 16,000 to a seasonally adjusted 212,000 for the week ended May 11, the Labor Department said on Thursday. Data for the prior week was unrevised.

Claims had been stuck at higher levels for three straight weeks, reflecting difficulties stripping out seasonal fluctuations from the data around moving holidays like Easter, Passover and school spring breaks.

Economists polled by Reuters had forecast claims would fall to 220,000 in the latest week. The Labor Department said no states were estimated last week.

The four-week moving average of initial claims, considered a better measure of labor market trends as it irons out week-to-week volatility, rose 4,750 to 225,000 last week.

The labor market is strong, with the unemployment rate near a 50-year low of 3.6%. The robust job market is supporting the economy as the boost from the White House’s $1.5 trillion tax cut package fades and President Donald Trump’s escalating trade war with China disrupts supply chains at factories, which are already struggling with an inventory bloat that has cut production.

Reading the above Reuters article, you can tell that the author wants America to fail so that Republicans (and the evil business community that supports them) will fail. Oddly, nothing but a point of view separates the author from those he hates. Similarly, I have seen leftist Antifa supporters bludgeoning young women and old men over their having attended a Trump rally. Again, nothing but a disagreement on whether a socialist government or a free people would best govern America separates the attackers from the victims.

In contrast, I have worked for ideologies to fail, but not people. In s recent post, I advocated against the passage of the Equality Act because I am certain that it will lead to the subjugation of my religious rights. However, in other posts, I have stood against Islamists that would kill gays. That is to say, I have stood by those in the “Gay Agenda,” because I see life as sacred, all people as sinners, and the only unforgivable sin as the rejection of Christ.

However, I also cannot stand by while Christians continually find themselves abused by gay groups who had benefited from the Christians’ action. Additionally, I cannot ignore the harshness and inhumanity of a gay system that time and time again has proven itself willing to subjugate those who disagree on points of conscience.

  1. Liberals have started to lose their composure due to fear of losing the battles they forced on the rest of America

Unborn Babies Are Not Human? CNN Debate Leads to Stunning Declaration: ‘That Is Not a Human Being’

A 10 May 2019 Christian Broadcasting Network article shows how liberals have been taken so aback by the possibility that Roe versus Wade might be returned to the states. As reported, a CNN panel consisting of former Senator Santorum, Chris Cuomo, and talking head Christine Quinn produced a surprising quote.

A CNN interview this week raised some powerful questions about the humanity of the unborn, taking the abortion debate straight to the most central question. But the arguments made by CNN’s host and contributor are stunning.

Host Chris Cuomo took the pro-abortion side as he questioned former US Senator Rick Santorum and CNN political contributor Christine Quinn.

They spoke about states that are passing restrictive abortion laws like Georgia’s hearbeat law, with Cuomo and Quinn arguing that a decision by five people on the Supreme Court is more valid than the rights of states or the beliefs of millions of Americans.

That turned into a heated exchange over when life begins before Quinn said something a lot of people find shocking.

The pro-life Santorum had challenged Cuomo and Quinn about their belief that the unborn baby inside a woman’s womb is not a human.

“Do you guys realize a baby DIES in an abortion? Are you ignoring that fact. This is a human life,” Santorum says.

“It’s not a legal fact,” Cuomo inserts.

“Do you disagree that at the moment of concept that child is human and alive? Is it biologically a human life?” Santorum says. Cuomo says the issue should only be about “viability,” to which Santorum replies, “You guys talk about being the party of science, that is so a-science.”

Then he raised the issue of humans being treated as property in a clear reference to the wrong-headed arguments that had been used by pro-slavery forces in the 1800’s. “That’s a unique human being inside that woman. So is it the property of a woman, that you can do whatever you want with it?”

Christine Quinn, a board member of the National Institute of Reproductive Health, said, “When a woman gets pregnant, that is not a human being inside of her. It’s part of her body, and this is about a woman having full agency and control over her body and making decisions about her body and what is part of her body with medical professionals.”

When liberals start claiming that babies in utero are not human, they are losing their grip with reality. Nobody thinks that you will crack an eagle egg and get a chicken or a wolf, but (somehow) liberals want us to believe that there is an immaculate conception each time a woman decides to keep her child. Until then, according to Christine Quinn, no human is human.

PHOTOS: Street Artist Sabo Calls Out Ilhan Omar over Her Anti-Semitic Remarks

As shown by a 23 March 2019 Breitbart article, it seems that even street artists have had enough of Representative Omar’s anti-Semitic rants.

IlhanomarPolitical street artist Sabo put up a number of signs criticizing anti-Semitic comments from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) in the Woodland Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles amid the freshman lawmaker’s appearance in town for a speech.

Ilhan Omar is scheduled to speak at a fundraiser for the controversial Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in Los Angeles Saturday. Counter-events have been organized against herIlhanOmardoor_hangers appearance.

“CAIR-LA is honored to have Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) as the featured speaker for the 4th Annual Valley Banquet,” the group’s website states.

“Born in Somalia, Ilhan and her family fled the country’s civil war when she was 8 years old. They lived in a refugee camp in Kenya for four years before coming to the United States, eventually settling in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis in 1997.”

AirDrake

  1. Superstar rapper Drake, who rails against climate change, buys massive private jet

The hypocrisy of rapper Drake comes out in a Climate Depot post of 10 May 2019.

The rapper Drake, who has surpassed The Beatles in song popularity, is now the proud owner of a 767 cargo jet despite his vocal climate change campaigning.

Drake acquires a gigantic plane. – Via Daily Caller – “The superstar rapper showed off his plane, called “Air Drake,” on Instagram Friday, and it’s downright absurd. The interior is absolutely massive, and he points out that it’s not a ‘timeshare’ or ‘rental.’ It’s just all his.”

While I support his right to use a jet and as many gas-guzzling SUV’s as he wants in the commission of his work, he needs to stop preaching unproven theories to the rest of us.

AOCripsUber

  1. Socialist ‘It’ Candidate Ocasio-Cortez Rips ‘Unregulated’ Uber, Then Spends $4,000 On … Uber

In a 28 August 2018 Investor’s Business Daily article, the way AOC uses ride shares (rather than public transportation) comes to light.

Socialism: Self-described social democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the gift that keeps on giving. The youthful socialist can hardly go a day without saying something that undescores the hypocrisy of her beliefs.

Last week, we noted the irony of the socialist movement’s most visible star (besides Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, of course) lamenting the closure of the restaurant she once worked at. Turns out, the restaurant closed largely due to enormous hikes in the minimum wage — a policy Ocasio-Cortez would enthusiastically impose on the whole country.

For her latest display of socialist hypocrisy, you have to go back to March.

Then, tragically, a New York cab driver named Nicanor Ochisor took his own life. He did so apparently in response to financial struggles. As Zuri Davis of the Reason.com blog points out, New York Times reporter Noam Scheiber immediately blamed ride-sharing companies Uber and Lyft for the death and faulted local government for letting the ride-sharing companies operate.

Seeing a chance to score political points, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted: “NYC’s fourth driver suicide. Yellow cab drivers are in financial ruin due to the unregulated expansion of Uber. What was a living wage now pays under minimum.”

And she had a whole socialist agenda for fixing the problem, as she saw it.

“We need:

-to call Uber drivers what they are: EMPLOYEES, not contractors

-Fed jobs guarantee

-Prep for automation”

But, surprise! Fox News reports that Federal Election Commission records show that Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign used Uber repeatedly, despite her sharp criticisms of the business model.

Indeed, her campaign spent around $4,000 on 160 Uber rides in California alone from April to late June. For the record, Ocasio-Cortez isn’t running for office in California, but in New York. Apparently, California is where the really BIG socialist billionaires live.

For someone who claims to be so so concerned about the environment (to the point of forcing the rest of us to embrace socialism and abandon our cars), she sure does not want to sacrifice anything.

Hypocritical Democrat. AKA, common Democrat.

  1. #AOC recants: ‘…world ending in 12 years due to climate change’ – it was “a joke”

In the electronic folds of the Watts Up with That blog, we are informed that AOC’s demands that we should give up all for the Green New Deal were just a joke that sea sponges should have understood.

Ocasio-Cortez recants with insult: I Was Joking About World Ending In 12 Years, and you’re an idiot if you believed me

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said that she was joking around when she claimed the world was going to end in 12 years if we do not take serious action against Climate Change, a declaration she’s been widely criticized over. The 29-year-old socialist mocked the Republican Party for taking her claim about the end of the world seriously, which she suggested was a combination of “dry humor + sarcasm.”

AOC in a tweet published on Mother’s Day:

She looked dead serious to me when she first said it:

I am with Mr. Watts. I saw her proposal of the Green New Deal as a real platform for her. However, I can also see the other side.

That is, by AOC making her own “deplorable” statement like this, she shows that she is the joke and those that vote for her are the punch line.

  1. Green New Deal Vote Exposes Democratic Hypocrisy on AOC-Led Insanity

Even left-leaning CNN cannot help but poke at AOC’s Green New Deal as a stupid idea.

One thing Democrats are notorious for is sticking together. However, the ludicrous Green New Deal is going to expose which of them will break ranks from the ascendent Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wing of the party and air on the side of sanity.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has set a vote over the Green New Deal for Tuesday afternoon. Most Democrats have boasted about the greatness of the radical proposal since it was introduced last month. However, since McConnell said, “okay, let’s vote,” they’ve been screaming bloody murder.

When the resolution for the deal is introduced, the word is many Democrats plan to vote “present.” That way they avoid actually saying yea or nay.

Do they think that by dodging the question in this manner, the American voter won’t see their complicity? If it’s such a good thing, sounding off on it early would be great, right?

  1. AOC is a Hypocrite on Global Warming

A 5 March 2019 opinion piece by Michael Knowles outlines the hyprocrisy of AOC.

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez likes to talk a good game on environmental issues, but recent findings show that while she talks the talk, she does not walk the walk. Michael Knowles calls her out on Monday’s episode of “The Michael Knowles Show.” Transcript and video below.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, our favorite socialist from Yorktown Heights, she said (paraphrasing), “We’re like, the world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change.” That’s what she said, so what she is saying is we need to have zero greenhouse gases, we need a full transition off of fossil fuels within ten years or else the world will end, or else it is not okay to have children, that’s what she said, (paraphrasing) “You have to ask yourself if it’s moral to have children in this world. And what did we learn from federal filings?” She’s a hypocrite, she doesn’t practice what she preaches. So Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lives in the city with the greatest subway system in the world, and according to her federal filings, she listed over 1,000 Uber, Lyft and Juno transactions during her campaign. She spent $30,000 on rideshare apps. Guess where her campaign headquarters was located? One minute away from the Seven Train and the Seven Train can take you anywhere because the Seven Train connects to a bunch of other lines so you can get all around. She lived a one-minute walk away from the Seven Train and she spent 30 G’s on ride-share apps. To put that into perspective, Max Rose, who’s another freshman Democrat from New York, he only spent $6,000 on rideshare apps and he only spent them on 329 rides during his campaign, so she used multiples more than this.

AOC-apartment

  1. “More Equal” AOC lives in a luxury apartment

As noted by a 19 February 2019 Washington Examiner article

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., recently moved into a luxury apartment complex in Washington, D.C. that does not offer the affordable housing units that were a key plank in the New York congresswoman’s campaign platform.

Ocasio-Cortez, 29, who said in November that she was concerned about being able to afford rent in D.C., now earns a $174,000 annual salary and is living in a newly built high-rise in the city’s Navy Yard area, the Washington Free Beacon reported last week.

The freshman congresswoman, a self-described socialist, campaigned on a platform to expand affordable housing, and her controversial Green New Deal proposal promises “Safe, affordable, adequate housing” for all.

But Ocasio-Cortez’s new building — built by leading D.C. developer WC Smith — is part of a luxury complex whose owners specifically do not offer affordable units under Washington, D.C.’s Affordable Dwelling Units program. The Washington Examiner is not naming the building or complex.

In 2018, a civil rights attorney sued the Washington, D.C. government for allegedly discriminatory gentrification policies, claiming that development in Navy Yard area and other parts of southeast D.C. encouraged an influx of affluent “millennial creatives” who displaced minority residents.

“We need to kick luxury real estate lobbyists to the curb and defend working people’s way of life,” Ocasio-Cortez said last March. “Skyrocketing cost of living is a national crisis that CAN be addressed. It’s not just an NYC issue – it’s happening in every US metro area.”

Ocasio-Cortez also promised not to take campaign contributions from luxury developers during her campaign. “It’s time we stand up to the luxury developer lobby,” she said in a speech last April. “Every official is too scared to do it – except me.”

SandersHowMany

  1. Lifestyles of the rich and socialist: Bernie Sanders has 3 houses, makes millions

Considering the fact that Bernie preaches the confiscation of wealth, you would think that he would live meagerly. You would think that one house (not three), public transportation (not $100K sports cars), and the health care system he forced us to use would be sufficient. However, if we go to a 21 February 2019 Fox News article, we get a description of his holdings that does not match up with his socialist preaching.

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., entered the 2020 presidential race this week promising to transform America with a left-wing vision of economic and environmental justice. But the self-described democratic socialist’s high-end income, multiple houses and fondness for air travel have already opened him up to criticism that his lifestyle doesn’t always match the rhetoric.

Sanders has pitched himself as a grassroots economic populist, focusing on income inequality and higher taxes for the rich.

“Our campaign is about transforming our country and creating a government based on the principles of economic, social, racial and environmental justice,” he said.

“Together you and I and our 2016 campaign began the political revoution,” he said. “Now it is time to complete that revolution and implement the vision that we fought for.”

But Sanders has raised eyebrows over his spending and personal wealth. Notably, he owns three houses. In 2016, he bought a $575,000 four-bedroom lake-front home in his home state. This is in addition to a row house in Washington D.C., as well as a house in Burlington, Vermont.

“The Bern will keep his home in Burlington and use the new camp seasonally,” Vermont’s Seven Day’s reported in 2016.

Ah, but what do we expect? Socialists who live up to their preaching?

4 recent instances of self-inflicted wounds by Democrats

Featured

Ilhan Omar Is a Game-Changer for Democrats—and Not in a Good Way

Ilhan-Omar-CAIR

Breitbart shares in a 13 April 2019 article how Ilhan Omar has dragged down Democrat ratings.

My bet is that most Democrats would rather be talking about healthcare than Rep. Ilhan Omar, the by-now-notorious Democrat from Minnesota.

This wager is based on a simple enough axiom: It’s best to fight on your strong issues, not your weak ones. Or, as the ancient Roman military strategist Vegetius wrote of the general who wants to win: “He must consider the field of battle and judge whether the ground is more advantageous for him or his enemy.”

As the 2018 midterm elections showed, the most advantageous ground for the Democrats has been healthcare, and so naturally, they were planning on more such campaigning in the 2020 election.

But not every plan happens. Now, instead, the Democrats are confronted with a much different issue, being fought on much less advantageous terrain—in the form of Omar. This is, of course, the nature of anything in human affairs; be it politics, or warfare—things change. As another famous military strategist, Helmut von Moltke, put it, “No plan survives contact with the enemy.”

The disruption of the Democrats’ happy healthcare plan started on March 23, when Omar delivered a speech to a Council of American-Islamic Relations assembly in Los Angeles in which, bringing up 9/11, she said those words that will live in infamy: “some people did something.”

Actually, Omar’s words didn’t get much attention until they were highlighted by Mohamad Tawhidi, an Australian Muslim cleric who holds decidedly anti-jihad views. As he tweeted on April 8,

Considering the number of times that Ilhan Omar has used anti-Semitic tropes (refer to the first and second video below), laughed about Americans’ fear of Al-Qaeda and Hezbollah (refer to the third video), and dismissed the 11 September 2001 attacks on America as “some people did something” (refer to the fourth video), this woman is a one-person Democrat mine field.

   

Bernie Sanders Defends Being Millionaire: ‘I Didn’t Know It Was a Crime to Write a Good Book’

BernieDefendsHisWealth

Again, we have a case of a politician either being willfully ignorant of the Bolshevik revolution, the Cultural Revolution in China, and other socialist uprisings where the rich (or those accused of formerly being rich) were accused and murdered. So this declared socialist tells us through a 13 April 2019 Breitbart article that he did not know that it was a crime to be rich — maybe he should study the history of socialist uprisings.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) on Saturday attempted to play down the significance of his millionaire status, quipping dryly that he didn’t imagine lucrative book sales would hurt his chances to win the White House.

Sanders said in his remarks at a community meeting in Gary, Indiana:

I didn’t know that it was a crime to write a good book which turns out to be a bestseller. My view has always been that we need a progressive tax system which demands that the wealthiest people in this country finally start paying their fair share of taxes,” he continued. “If I make a lot of money, you make a lot of money, that is what I believe. So again, I don’t apologize for writing a book that was number three on the New York Times bestseller, translated into five or six languages and that’s that.

Sanders’ remarks come after revealing in an interview this week that his New York Times best-selling book Where We Go From Here made him a hefty sum of money. “I wrote a best-selling book. If you write a best-selling book, you can be a millionaire, too,” he told the paper. The 77-year-old Democratic Socialist also confirmed he plans to release his tax returns on Monday.

(Read more at Breitbart)

Mr. Sanders, don’t think that we don’t remember last year’s charge from you that people making over a million should pay 52% in taxes. Don’t think that we don’t expect you to lead by example — we expect you to pay the taxes you have been haranguing us about for years.

For a change, lead by example. Stop trying to change the subject as you did in the sham of a townhall.

Anyone who votes for this idiot is voting for the hope of a government handout before the economy tanks so badly that government programs start getting shut down.

Additionally, despite Mr. Sanders assertion that his wealth comes from his having “written a good book,” he amassed quite a holding in the banks, a set of 3 houses, and an expensive sports car purportedly on the six-figure salary afforded to a member of Congress for over 35 years (16 years in the House and a Senator since 2006).

   

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Melts Down over Criticism of Fake Accent

AOC_meltdown

Breitbart shows us the shallowness of AOC’s attachment to other minority voters through a 6 April 2019 article.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) responded to criticism for her patronizing use of a fake accent in front of a black audience in the usual manner — crybabying.

The not-terribly-bright socialist was caught on video Friday patronizing the mostly black audience with a fake southern drawl at Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network conference.

The humiliating video quickly made the rounds on social media, earning the criticism and ridicule it deserved.

The video is as shocking as it is excruciating. All of a sudden, the Westchester socialist, who is famous for her Jerry the Mouse voice, starts talking like a black preacher.

“This is what organizing looks like. This is what building power looks like,” Ocasio-Crazy said with her affected cadence. “This is what changing the country looks like. It’s when we choose to show up and occupy the room and talk about the things that matter most, talking about our future.”

“Ain’t nothing wrong with that. There’s nothing wrong with working retail, folding clothes for other people to buy,” she continued. “There is nothing wrong with preparing the food that your neighbors will eat. There is nothing wrong with driving the buses that take your family to work”:

Democrats Battle Justice Dept., Citing Nixon and Clinton as They Demand Full Mueller Report

Nadler

According to a 4 April 2019 Christian Broadcasting Network article, it seems that some long-time Democrats don’t like the restrictive laws they passed regarding reports from special counsels.

Congressional Democrats are going to battle with the Justice Department, voting to subpoena the full Mueller report on Russian interference in the 2016 election. They say Attorney General Bill Barr’s redacted version won’t be enough. They want to see everything.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) said, “I frankly believe that we are being both fair and balanced.”

Democrats in the House made it official and partisan, voting 24-17 along party lines to authorize subpoenas, but waiting before firing them off.

“The committee has a right and the responsibility to see the full contents of this report,” Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) said.

Attorney General Barr has already promised to get them a version scrubbed of classified material, secret grand jury testimony, and anything related to ongoing investigations or the personal privacy of third parties.

“The department is wrong to try to withhold that info,” said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY). “The Constitution charges Congress with holding the president accountable for alleged official misconduct. That job requires us to evaluate the evidence for ourselves – not the attorney general’s summary – not the substantially redacted substance – but the full report.”

Nadler compared Mueller’s report to the release of the Ken Starr report into President Bill Clinton, holding up boxes of information produced by Starr along with “some of the grand jury material” from the Nixon impeachment process.

Georgia Republican Rep. Doug Collins said those props are like apples and oranges, saying the comparison between the Starr report and the Mueller report “just doesn’t work.”

Never mind that some of the same Democrats (i.e., Jerry Nadler) who want Attorney General Barr to break the law by exposing the full content of Special Counsel Mueller’s report were the same lawmakers who changed the law after Special Counsel Starr exposed all sorts of dirty laundry from the Clintons.

If Nadler doesn’t like how he wrote the law, maybe he should look in the mirror and give himself a good lecture for a couple of years.

If you compare the videos of today’s Nadler demanding to see all of the special counsel’s report to 1990’s (really fat) Nadler telling us why the special counsel’s report violates the President’s legal rights, you get the idea that Nadler must have Dissociative identity disorder.

#1: Connecticut woman says then-Vice President Joe Biden touched her inappropriately at a Greenwich fundraiser in 2009

The Hartford Courant reports in a 2 April 2019 article how a Connecticut woman has charged Joe Biden with unwanted advances.

A Connecticut woman says Joe Biden touched her inappropriately and rubbed noses with her during a 2009 political fundraiser in Greenwich when he was vice president, drawing further scrutiny to the Democrat and his history of unwanted contact with women as he ponders a presidential run.

“It wasn’t sexual, but he did grab me by the head,” Amy Lappos told The Courant Monday. “He put his hand around my neck and pulled me in to rub noses with me. When he was pulling me in, I thought he was going to kiss me on the mouth.”

Lappos posted about the alleged incident on the Facebook page of Connecticut Women in Politics Sunday in response to a similar account by former Nevada legislator Lucy Flores, which comes as Biden is considering a 2020 run for president. Flores accused Biden of kissing her on the back of her head in 2014, when she was a candidate for lieutenant governor.

Lappos, 43, who is now a freelance worker with nonprofit agencies, said she felt extremely uncomfortable when Biden approached her at the 2009 fundraiser for U.S. Rep. Jim Himes, D-4th, where she was volunteering. At the time, Lappos was a congressional aide to Himes, who she said was not in the room when the incident took place.

“I never filed a complaint, to be honest, because he was the vice president. I was a nobody,” Lappos said. “There’s absolutely a line of decency. There’s a line of respect. Crossing that line is not grandfatherly. It’s not cultural. It’s not affection. It’s sexism or misogyny.”

The weird thing is that, so far, none of these “problems” with Joe Biden are illegal. They’re weird. They’re something that I would not allow him to do to any 14-year-old girl under my care, but they’re not illegal acts.

The thing that has been at work here has been the full-blown identity politics that the Obama regime perfected.

Two more women stepped forward on Tuesday and accused former Vice President Joe Biden (D) of sexual harassment. The women, Caitlyn Caruso and D. J. Hill, told their stories to The New York Times.

Here’s what took place, according to The Hill:

Caruso, 22, told the Times that Biden rested his hand on her thigh even as she attempted to show her discomfort by squirming in her seat during a sexual assault event at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas. Caruso, who was 19 at the time, added that Biden hugged her “just a little bit too long.”

She told the newspaper that the interaction was uncomfortable because she had just discussed a time she was sexually assaulted and expected Biden to be aware of physical boundaries.

“It doesn’t even really cross your mind that such a person would dare perpetuate harm like that,” she told the paper. “These are supposed to be people you can trust.”

Hill, 59, told the Times that while taking a photograph with Biden in 2012, the then-vice president placed his hand on her shoulder and began moving it down her back, something she said made her “very uncomfortable.”

“Only he knows his intent,” she added.

#3: Democrats double down on identity politics with Pete Buttigieg

As pointed out by a 6 April 2019 on SFGate, it seeems that Democrats are intent on doubling down on identity politics. In this case, Pete Buttigieg is counting on riding the label of “gay” into the White House.

Pete Buttigieg sat in the back of a black SUV with a couple of staffers, sipping a still-steeping cup of tea to ease the fatigue from his suddenly frenetic schedule, when he looked out the window and interrupted himself.

“Man,” said Buttigieg, taking in the rainbow-hued signs and colorfully dressed passersby that signaled he had entered West Hollywood, Los Angeles’ de facto gay neighborhood. “It got real gay real quick out there.”

Few Democratic presidential candidates could assess their surroundings so bluntly without seeming painfully out of line. But Buttigieg is not like any other Democratic presidential candidate – in part, if not exclusively, because he is gay.

Although I did not understand the electorate’s support of a moral reprobate like Bill Clinton, I understand a little of their desire to keep government out of private affairs. Considering that, Obama and his NSA scandal should have been a bigger deal (except for the cover provided by the Democrat press).

Still, Democrats are going to have to provide more of a reason for voter support than “Vote for me, I’m gay.”

#4: AOC – You Guys, They Amended the Constitution to Stop FDR From Running Again, or Something

As we see in a 1 April 2019 article on Townhall, AOC has uttered another set of indefensible statements about FDR.

According to her supporters, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a singular obsession of the right-wing media. This framing ignores the indisputable reality that she’s a creation of the mainstream and left-wing media, heralded and celebrated as the fresh face of a new generation of hard-charging progressives. She’s also succeeding in yanking her party leftward, as multiple presidential candidates have endorsed her fanatical and fanciful “green new deal” legislation — although they all scurried behind a wall of “present” votes when the moment to support the resolution actually arrived.

Her latest media showcase occurred on MSNBC late last week, during with the freshman Congresswoman made all sorts of attention-grabbing assertions and comparisons — including advancing the notion that “environmental justice” must only be achieved alongside “economic justice,” which certainly won’t hlep dispel many skeptics’ suspicion that programs like the green new deal are less about addressing an urgent crisis, and more about redistributing wealth and amassing governmental control. Among other topics, she explained that the Tea Party is different than her movement because unlike those xenophobic white supremacists, she doesn’t call her opponents names:

Seems legit, and duly noted. She went on to make the following claim about the success of aggressive statism in American politics. FDR’s vast expansion of government was so popular, she averred, that opponents had to amend the constitution to prevent him from winning again:

Her point is correct, except for the fact that (a) President Roosevelt (who ignored the Washington-set precedent of serving a maximum of two consecutive terms) had been dead for roughly two years when the 22nd Amendment was passed by overwhelming and bipartisan Congressional majorities, and approximately six years by the time it was ratified by the states and implemented, and (b) even if it had been directed at FDR while he were still in office, the amendment only applied to future presidents. It’s also worth noting that Republican majorities were only able to introduce this ultimately-successful amendment because they’d won sweeping landslide victories in the 1946 midterm elections, winning control of both legislative chambers. Also, at least two Republican presidents opposed the amendment, with Ronald Reagan going so far as to urge its repeal. Some dutiful media acolytes are performing their own version of Trumpist ‘translations’ in order to ostensibly demonstrate how AOC was actually kind of correct, if you ignore the actual substance of her core claim.

#5: Ocasio-Cortez slammed as ‘financially illiterate’ at Sharpton event over Amazon, faces calls to be ousted from office

5-Ocasio-Cortez slammed as 'financially illiterate'

According to one 6 April 2019 Fox News article, even members of the socialist branch of the Democrat party have had enough of the idiocy that comes out of AOC.

Hours before Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called for an “agenda of reparations” at an Al Sharpton-sponsored event in New York on Friday, she was slammed as “financially illiterate” at the same conference for killing the Amazon deal with the state.

Ocasio-Cortez spoke to the crowd at the National Action Network, saying her Green New Deal will consider reparations to black Americans for slavery in addition to the radical overhaul of the economy in a bid to combat climate change.

But at the same conference, hours before Ocasio-Cortez’s speech, an investor ripped those who opposed the Amazon deal with the state that would have generated billions in tax revenue and 25,000 jobs.

“The people campaigning against the Amazon campus are financially illiterate,” said Tracy Maitland, president and chief investment officer of Advent Capital Management during a panel discussion the Black Economic Agenda, according to the New York Post.

6-Ocasio-Cortez de-listed

According to a 19 March 2019 Fox News article, it seems that a previous group has decided that AOC is a persona non grata.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., reportedly has been de-listed from the board of left-wing activist group Justice Democrats, following legal and ethical questions about her affiliation with the group.

The Daily Caller reported that Ocasio-Cortez, along with chief of staff and former campaign chair Saikat Chakrabarti, have been removed from the board of the political action committee after previously holding “legal control over the entity” in late 2017 and early 2018.

The Daily Caller had reported earlier this month on Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti’s role with the PAC, noting that the congresswoman never disclosed to the Federal Election Commission that they “controlled the PAC while it was simultaneously supporting her primary campaign.” Former FEC officials said at the time this could represent violations of campaign finance law.

Well, at least someone is catching on.

#7: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Melts Down over Collapsing Poll Numbers

7-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Melts Down

Just when good news seems sparce, Breitbart News reports in a 17 March 2019 article how AOC didn’t receive the news of her falling popularity very well.

Earlier this week, Breitbart News reported on Ocasio-Crazy’s awful polling numbers as reported by Gallup. There is just no question that as her national profile has exploded, primarily through gushing coverage from the establishment media, it has backfired bigtime with the public.

The more people know about Ocasio-Crazy, even though the media’s Vaseline-smeared filter, the less they like her.

Although she is much better known than almost all of her counterparts in congress, better known than even Chief Justice John Roberts, a plurality of 41 percent view her unfavorably, a leap of 15 points since September.

Meanwhile, her favorable rating has only jumped seven points, from 24 to 31 percent.

Right now, Ocasio-Crazy is underwater with the public by double digits, by ten full points.

#9: Gallup – Negativity toward AOC piling up

OneNewsNow reports in a 17 March 2019 article that Gallup has confirmed that AOC’s falling numbers.

The latest Gallup poll reveals that the public’s opinion of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has plummeted, as the socialist Democrat’s ignorance on issues and shocking ultra-left stances continue to make more and more Americans fearful about the potential damage she can do in Washington.

Before the young “rock star” candidate rocked the world by defeating 10-term incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) at the ballot box last November, American negativity toward the self-proclaimed socialist was relatively low, but after her numerous controversial gaffs and oblivious comments exposing her inexperience and dangerous worldview, more Americans are becoming wary about the destructive path on which the left-leaning representative could lead America.

Since Americans were surveyed in early September, a shocking upward shift in their negative opinion toward AOC has been discovered, as Gallup’s new poll indicates that the millennial Democrat is scaring off many once-impressed left-leaning sympathizers.

Let’s just hope she keeps it up.

#10: Obama acolyte warns of the unpopularity of socialism

#10: Famously ruthless Dem warns about going Red

8-rahm-emanuel-upset-AP-640x480

In a 15 March 2019 OneNewsNow article, news of the unpopularity of socialism comes to light (at least on other-than-main-stream press).

A prominent Democrat is warning his party that Donald Trump will exploit their far-left ideas in 2020, and a political analyst says it’s good advice that won’t be heeded.

“Rahm Emanuel warns Democrats in 2020 not to play to ‘socialist’ type,” a USA Today headline states to begin a March 21 story.

Emanuel, the outgoing Chicago mayor, wrote an op-ed for The Atlantic warning fellow Democrats that they are serving up “slow pitches over the plate” to Trump, and he said the Republican president will peel away Democrats over proposals such as the Green New Deal and Medicare for All.

Emanuel, a Bill Clinton advisor who later served as Barack Obama’s chief of staff, is not appealing to Democrats out of niceness: he is known as a ruthless political player who once sent a mob-like dead fish to a pollster he didn’t like, and rattled off a list of political “enemies” as he stabbed a steak knife into a table.

A 28 January 2019 Daily Caller article points to the anti-Semitic ties of Rashida Tlaib.

Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s ties to anti-Semitism run deeper than previously known, a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation found.

Tlaib, part of a heralded freshman class of House Democrats, has already come under scrutiny over her positions on Israel and ties to fringe figures. But TheDCNF’s investigation uncovered additional ties to anti-Semitism.

Tlaib is a member of the Facebook group “Palestinian American Congress,” where members often demonize Jews. The group’s founder, Palestinian activist Maher Abdel-qader, was a key fundraiser for Tlaib and organized campaign events for her around the country.

In January 2018, Abdel-qader shared an anti-Semitic video that claimed Jews aren’t actually Jewish, and invented their historical claim to Israel and secretly control the media.

The video, which described Jews as “satanic,” also questioned whether 6 million Jews actually died in the Holocaust.

“Research the truth about the Holocaust, and you’ll definitely start to question what you thought you knew,” the video’s narrator says.

#12: Ilhan Omar ignites new anti-Semitism controversy with comments on AIPAC

10-ilhan-omar-tweet-explainer-1024x640

According to a 10 February 2019 article in Politico, Ilhan Omar decides to use anti-Semitic language to associate Jews and Republicans (when, oddly, many Jews are Democrats).

Freshman Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar ignited a new controversy on Sunday night when she suggested GOP support for Israel is driven by campaign donations from a prominent pro-Israel group.

Omar singled out AIPAC, one of the most influential lobbying groups in Washington, as the source of those donations.

Omar’s comments touched upon a long-running, and particularly ugly, thread of the anti-Semitic movement — that Jewish money fuels backing for Israel in the United States and elsewhere. A freshman Democrat, Max Rose of New York, said, “Congresswoman Omar’s statements are deeply hurtful to Jews, including myself.”

And the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee is a non-profit that doesn’t donate directly to candidates. AIPAC, however, does relentlessly push a pro-Israeli message on Capitol Hill and inside the executive branch, and its members donate to pro-Israel lawmakers and candidates while seeking to defeat those it considers a threat to U.S.-Israeli relations.

#13: She Said What!? Ilhan Omar Has Anti-Semitism Trouble Again

11-Omar

As recorded in a 4 March 2019 Townhall article, it seems that Ilhan Omar repeated her anti-Semitic ways.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) just can’t get past the anti-Semitism issue. She has peddled in such trash before, posting tweets that were very…problematic with regards to this issue. And no, they’re not old. They’re not from high school. They’re from last month. And it’s stuff that isn’t new; Jewish Minnesota leaders had to have a sit-down with her because of her remarks. It was when she tweeted “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel” back in 2012. Now, after her “all about the Benjamins” fiasco, which once again peddled old anti-Semitic stereotypes about people of the Jewish faith, money, and influence, these local leaders might not treat her with “kid gloves” anymore. The media certainly hasn’t let her off the hook, reporting on her serial stupidity on this front.

So, what’s her latest anti-Semitic trainwreck? Well, she sort of accused people who are pro-Israel of exhibiting dual loyalty. She made such remarks last Wednesday. Even liberal writers can see through her nonsense, noting that she’s peddling the Palestinian cause to smuggle in bigoted talking points (via NYT):

Representative Ilhan Omar, a freshman Democrat from Minnesota, came under scrutiny again this week because of her comments about Israel.

The remarks in question came during a discussion at a Washington bookstore on Wednesday about how critics have repeatedly labeled Ms. Omar’s criticism of Israel as anti-Semitic. She argued that the label is being used in bad faith to shut down debate.

The sentence that garnered the most attention was, “I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is O.K. for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country.”

Ms. Omar questioned why it was acceptable for her to speak critically about the political influence of the National Rifle Association, fossil fuel industries and “big pharma,” but not the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. (After she was widely criticized for a tweet about Aipac last month, she deleted it and apologized.)

In an article for New York magazine about the bookstore event, the writer Jonathan Chait accused Ms. Omar of using the cause of Palestinian rights “to smuggle in ugly stereotypes.”

He added that she was “invoking the hoary myth of dual loyalty, in which the Americanness of Jews is inherently suspect.”

Some conservative news outlets also posted articles critical of the comments. And Marshall Wittmann, a spokesman for Aipac, said in a statement that the accusation of “dual loyalty” was alarming.

“The charge of dual loyalty not only raises the ominous specter of classic anti-Semitism, but it is also deeply insulting to the millions upon millions of patriotic Americans, Jewish and non-Jewish, who stand by our democratic ally, Israel,” Mr. Wittmann said.

Reuters Reporter Covered Up Damaging Beto Info During Texas Senate Race

Reuters covers up O'Rourke's hacking group involvement

Breitbart reports in a 17 March 2019 article that details how a Reuters reporter has admitted to hiding information that might have damaged the Democrat’s senatorial run in 2018.

A Reuters reporter admits he offered to hide damaging information about Beto O’Rourke during the Democrat’s tight Senate race against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).

On Friday morning, Reuters journalist Joseph Menn broke the news that, as a teen, O’Rourke, who is now a freshly-minted 2020 presidential candidate, was part of a secret hacking group known as the Cult of the Dead Cow.

Since publication, Reuters has also been forced to admit their reporter, who was on leave at the time, knew all about O’Rourke’s hacker past during the 2018 Texas Senate race but offered not to reveal it until after the race:

After more than a year of reporting, Menn persuaded O’Rourke to talk on the record. In an interview in late 2017, O’Rourke acknowledged that he was a member of the group, on the understanding that the information would not be made public until after his Senate race against Ted Cruz in November 2018.

“While I was looking into the Cult of the Dead Cow, I found out that they had a member who was sitting in Congress. I didn’t know which one. But I knew that they had a member of Congress.

“And then I figured out which one it was. And the members of the group wouldn’t talk to me about who it was. They wouldn’t confirm that it was this person unless I promised that I wouldn’t write about it until after the November election. That’s because the member of Congress had decided to run for Senate. Beto O’Rourke is who it was.

“I met Beto O’Rourke. I said ‘I’m writing a book about Cult of the Dead Cow, I think it’s really interesting. I know you were in this group. This book is going to publish after November and your Senate race is over. And he said, ‘OK.’

The key sentence there is: “And then I figured out which one it was.”

So, even before he made a deal with O’Rourke to cover up his criminal past (stealing credit card numbers, etc.), Menn knew it was O’Rourke he was looking for. And all throughout the consequential Texas Senate campaign, Menn chose to hide that information from voters.

This is just one more example of how the liberal media (including Google, Twitter, Facebook, Buzzfeed, the New York Times, and much more) covers for Democrats. They act as the communications department of the Democrats, run interference for the Democrats (sometimes by shadow banning on electronic media, sometimes by being aggressive with conservative voices on broadcast media). The crazy thing is that they expect us not to notice it.

AP Headline: O’Rourke says nothing in his past will hinder 2020 run

NothingStopORourke

An 18 MRCH 2019 Associated Press article tells us that Robert Francis O’Rourke claims that nothing in his past will hinder his 2020 run.

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke told supporters Sunday that he’s never taken LSD and there’s “nothing” he hasn’t already revealed about his past that could come back to hurt his run for office.

The former Texas congressman — who has become known for his propensity for using the “f-word” — also promised again to clean up his language, despite breaking such past vows.

O’Rourke grabbed much attention as he wrapped up his first week of campaigning, but his challengers could be found at events from the Upper Midwest to the South. And looming over them all is the shadow of one prominent Democrat not in but not out, former Vice President Joe Biden. He has yet to announce a decision.

Speaking in front of a large map of Russia inside a coffee shop in Wisconsin’s capital, O’Rourke promised to return often, addressing concerns Democrats raised in 2016 after Hillary Clinton never campaigned in the state after her party’s primary and lost the state to Donald Trump by fewer than 23,000 votes.

“This state is fundamental to any prospect we have of electing a Democrat to the presidency in 2020,” O’Rourke said, adding that he was “really glad” Milwaukee was chosen to host the 2020 Democratic national convention. The city, which O’Rourke was visiting later Sunday, beat out Miami and Houston.

This makes me wonder what (other than his hacking, his fantasies of running over children, his drunken driving, his criminal record as a burglar, and his cross dressing) he has to hide.


O’Rourke: Ban AR-15 Sales in America

O'Rourke: ban AR-15 sales

Breitbart reports in a 17 March 2019 article how Robert Francis O’Rourke wants to ban a type of gun.

During a weekend interview presidential hopeful Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke said AR-15 sales should be banned in America.

This is a continuation of the anti-Second Amendment campaign O’Rourke conducted in his failed 2018 Senate bid.

For example, in February 2018 interview with CBS News O’Rourke supported banning bump stocks and made clear his belief that AR-15s ought not be sold in America. He said, “I think banning bump stocks makes a lot of sense. … I don’t know that we should raise the age for buying an AR-15 I just don’t think we should be selling AR-15s in this country.” And on October 18, 2018, O’Rourke noted Texas’ proud gun heritage then explained his desire for Texas to lead they way on gun control by adopting the gun laws being pushed for everyone else.>/p>

He is now making gun control a central component of his push for the Democrat presidential nomination

In an interview published by the Hill, O’Rourke said current AR-15 owners ought to be able to keep their firearms, but further sales of the rifles in America ought to be prohibited. In the building up to his call for a ban O’Rourke described the AR-15 as super powerful weapon designed “for the express purpose of killing people as effectively as possible, in as great a number as possible.”

Ironically, Breitbart News took out an AR-15 and a lever action rifle to compare the power of the two weapons. We shot one concrete block four times with an AR-15, and it remains largely intact. We shot an identical block with the lever action and it crumbled in pieces.

Whiners Whine about Beto O’Rourke Mugshot Tweet

O'Rourke's mugshot for leaving the scene of an accident while drunk

In an 18 March 2019 Breitbart article, we hear about the crybaby response to the tweet of O’Rourke’s drunken mugshot.

The usual-usual media stooges for the Democrat Party are crying “racism” over a hilarious St. Patrick’s Day tweet featuring Robert “The Spaz” O’Rourke and his mugshot.

O’Rourke, who calls himself “Beto” in an effort to pretend he’s Hispanic, was arrested for drunk driving in Texas 20 years ago. He was 26 years old at the time, speeding, hit another car, and tried to flee the scene.

After he agreed to some counseling, all the charges were dropped.

No big deal in the scheme of things, but in a political culture where the establishment media’s seething hatred for President Trump has normalized trolling, it only makes sense for the Republican Party to get in on the act, which is why the GOP’s St. Patrick’s Day tweet is so glorious:

In fact, let me count the ways in which this tweet is glorious…

  1. It reminds voters O’Rourke is Irish, not HISPANIC.
  2. It reminds voters that O’Rourke’s “Beto” nickname is an affectation so he can pretend to be Mexican.
  3. It uses O’Rourke’s mugshot, and a mugshot is never a good look for a presidential candidate.
  4. It reminds voters that O’Rourke, while speeding around drunk, caused an accident, jumped the median into oncoming traffic, tried to flee the scene, and then had the charges dropped — which is not how this works for most of us.
  5. Because insecure media simpletons are so easily baited with anything that allows them to signal their own precious virtue, the GOP knew their outrage would spread this tweet far and wide, which is exactly what has happened.
  6. Because it’s again in the news, O’Rourke again has to deal with it, which puts him on defense and knocks him off-message.
  7. This predictable (and hypocritical) outrage is yet another way for the GOP to show the American people just what a bunch of humorless, unattractive, crybaby, stick-up-the-ass prigs the media and Democrats have become, which leads me back to my overall point about the reaction…

I fully support pointing out the difference between O’Rourke’s narrative and the documented truth. Don’t you?

O’Rourke on Third-Trimester Abortions: Should be Decision the Woman Makes

Breitbart reports in a 18 March 2019 article how, when asked whether he approved third trimester abortion, he dodged the question by saying that the matter should be decided by the woman.

Appearing Monday at a campaign stop in Cleveland, Ohio, 2020 Democrat candidate Beto O’Rourke said he believes it’s a woman’s right to decide whether she should undergo a third-trimester abortion, signaling he would not support government intervening to prevent the procedure.

To be clear, a baby that has developed to the third trimester can live outside of the womb. That baby has lungs, a heart, skin that feels pain, and eyes.

‘Beto’ O’Rourke Not Sure if He’s ‘Bi-Cultural’

Through another 18 March 2019 Breitbart article, we find “Beto” waffling on whether he has bi-cultural roots.

Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke said this weekend that he is not sure if he is “bi-cultural.”

“I live in a bi-cultural community. My folks and their parents and generation that preceded them were from all over Europe so I don’t know if I would consider myself bi-cultural if you’re asking US and Mexico, but I’m very proud to live in a bicultural community,” O’Rourke reportedly told reporters days after formally entering the 2020 presidential race. “And for my kids to be going to a dual language public school where they are learning math in English and Spanish.”

White liberal media reporters have gushed over how O’Rourke can speak Spanish on the stump, signaling to white audiences that he is bilingual, and have written countless profiles about how O’Rourke comes from a “bi-cultural” community in El Paso, Texas.

But as he has done with numerous questions since he launched his candidacy—Medicare for all, impeachment, reparations—O’Rourke gave a non-answer clouded in soaring rhetoric, which already seems to be one of his trademarks on the stump.

Ruben Navarrette: Unearned ‘Beto’ Moniker like ‘Stolen Valor’

Although it will not be news to listeners of the Chris Salcedo Show, Ruben Navarrette tells Breitbart that “Beto” is no Latino.

One of the country’s top Latino columnists ripped Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke over the weekend for his cultural appropriation, arguing that “Beto” has not “earned” his nickname.

In fact, in a USA Today column, Ruben Navarrette said that the “Beto backlash” among Latinos reminds him “of the idea of stolen valor, the righteous outrage felt by combat veterans when others who didn’t see action claim medals they don’t deserve.”

Navarrette said that numerous Latinos “— unlike the media, which is run by white liberals who are fascinated by other white liberals — refuse to go loco for Beto” because O’Rourke has not been with the community when it mattered on issues like immigration.

2020: O’Rourke Raises $6.1 Million in First 24 Hours, Beating Bernie Sanders

Breitbart points out how O’Rourke has bested Bernie’s record for raising funds for a presidential run.

Democrat presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke raised a “record-breaking” $6.1 million online in the first 24 hours of his 2020 presidential campaign, topping Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and all other Democrat candidates, his campaign announced Monday.

According to O’Rourke communications director Chris Evans, the haul came “without a dime” from political action committees (PACs), corporations or special interests.

Sanders raised $5.9 million in the first 24 hours after announcing his campaign for the White House in February. Pressed last week on whether he would take in more than Sanders, O’Rourke told reporters, “We’ll see.”

Reuters headline “O’Rourke candidacy asks: Can a moderate white male win the 2020 Democratic primary?”

Reuters tells us in a 17 March 2019 article how they seem to think that O’Rourke falls into the “moderate” range of Democrat contenders.

As he had done at several stops in his first campaign trip as a presidential candidate, Beto O’Rourke on Friday climbed atop a counter at a local Iowa business and addressed a small but adoring crowd. People clapped and cheered. Outside, some waited in the cold, hoping to catch a glimpse of him.

By that measure, his tour across eastern Iowa last week was largely a success. But by no means was O’Rourke considered a front-runner. And that underscored the challenge he faces as he competes for the 2020 Democratic nomination.

O’Rourke, a former three-term U.S. congressman from Texas, became a celebrity last year when his longshot bid to unseat U.S. Senator Ted Cruz drew national attention and a torrent of money. But ultimately, his fame was not enough.

That loss led some critics to wonder why someone who couldn’t secure a Senate seat would then think he should run for president.

That is not his only obstacle. O’Rourke, 46, is a wealthy, white man from a conservative-leaning state who is more moderate on several key issues than many of his competitors. Given the energy among progressives in the early stages of the race and the diversity of the Democratic field, O’Rourke would appear to be everything that many in the party say they do not want.

O’Rourke slams Israeli leader Netanyahu as ally of ‘racists’

In a 20 March 2019 Fox News article, we find that Robert Francis O’Rourke sides with the Palestinians (who have a one-party system and limited elections and who support the families of slain terrorists) over Israel.

Beto O’Rourke is taking aim at embattled Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, claiming the steadfast ally of Republican President Trump “has openly sided with racists.”

The Democratic presidential candidate and former congressman from Texas – on the campaign trail in New Hampshire – also criticized negotiators ostensibly trying to end the generations-old Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

“Right now we don’t have the best negotiating partners on either side. We have a prime minister in Israel who has openly sided with racists,” he charged.

O’Rourke has been a critic of Israel’s longtime conservative leader, who is facing a corruption scandal at home, but the comments were some of his most pointed in describing Netanyahu. O’Rourke also jabbed at Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas.

“On the Palestinian side, we have an ineffectual leader. Mahmoud Abbas has not been very effective in bringing his side to the table,” he lamented.

Never mind that a political machine oiled by Barack Hussein Obama is charging Netanyahu with unsubstantiated charges (much in the same way Trump has been pursued starting with the Steele dossier). Nonetheless, how does O’Rourke come up with the racist claim?

According to the Israeli Defense Forces Ali Musa Daqduq, a Lebanese national, heads a terror cell comprised of Syrians, based on the Syrian side of the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights.
