For Latinos, ´Beto´ O´Rourke is
just another privileged white guy
trying to manipulate them

USA Today, by Ruben Navarrette Jr.

He hasn’t earned it. I’ve distilled it down. And that’s basically the refrain I’ve heard from dozens of Latinos who — unlike the media, which is run by white liberals who are fascinated by other white liberals — refuse to go loco for Beto. They’re concerned that Robert Francis O’Rourke, who this week joined an already-crowded field of 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls, is trying to put one over on Latinos by tricking them into thinking he’s one of them. Or, at the very least, they think that his strategy,

Once they go down the white privilege path I loose interest, they are just trying to claim victim status.

Key item of interest that should slam the lid on this dangerous fraud; FTA: “What they appear not as eager to talk about, however, is the fact that Patrick O’Rourke—Robert Francis’ father—once explained that he was the one who gave his son the nickname in the first place and the reason had a lot to do with politics, as well as geography. According to The Dallas Morning News, the patriarch reasoned that if his son ever ran for office in El Paso, the odds of being elected in that largely Mexican-American city were far greater with a name like Beto.”

Also, this article says Beta doesn´t appear to have accomplished much for this constituency as a voting bloc, meaning leftist goodies such as easing immigration, providing special services, etc. Beta is dangerous because of how close he came to unseating Ted Cruz is supposedly conservative Texas. And when the rubber met the road, Latinos pulled the lever for the Democrat, as reflected in most any poll (vs heresay on being family values voters).

“Beto” took 80% of the Latino vote in Denton, Dallas, El Paso, Harris, Hidalgo, and Travis counties, which have higher percentages of Latino voters, versus 20% for Cruz. Per WaPo, 12/11/18, “Have Democrats turned the corner with Latino voters?”

Sorry for the re-buy #7 but Beto´s miraculous 80 million still lost. Ted Cruz did not expend the slightest BIT of resources that had to be used to BEAT this moron to a (2%) PULP.

Mueller’s Despicable Parthian Shot
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/19/2019 5:39:09     Post Reply
When special counsel Robert Mueller finally finished his investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election, he produced a report that confirms much of the criticism President Trump has leveled at him during the past two years. It clearly reveals that Mueller’s partisan investigators were determined to “get Trump,” and that they were frustrated by their inability to do so. This is most obvious in the section dealing with obstruction of justice. As it is phrased in the Introduction to Volume II, “[T]his report does not conclude that the President committed a crime.” An honest evaluation would have stopped there.

This week, Attorney General William Barr testified in front of the Senate Appropriations Committee. In an exchange with Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Barr answered, “I think spying did occur, yes. I think spying did occur.” He received immediate pushback for his comments. “Let me just say how very, very dismaying and disappointing that the chief law enforcement officer is going off the rails,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in response to his comments. She went on to say, “He is the attorney general of the United States of America, not the attorney general of Donald Trump.”

Trump is looking to give sanctuary
cities just what they asked for
New York Post, by Betsy McCaughey    Original Article

President Trump scored a win on Friday, when a federal appeals court gave a temporary green light to his Remain-in-Mexico program. The idea is to keep asylum seekers south of the border until they get their day in court. It’s urgently needed to help border towns like McAllen, Texas, in the Rio Grande Valley region, and Las Cruces, New Mexico, which are being overwhelmed. The same critics pouncing on Trump’s call to transport these asylum seekers to sanctuary cities are also opposing his Remain-in-Mexico program. For these Trump-haters, nothing matters but politics.

Democrats have spent the past two-plus years accusing the president of the United States and his allies of seditiously conspiring with our enemies to destroy “democracy.” For the most part this fairytale has been cynically deployed by politicians to undermine the legitimacy of a Republican presidency, yet millions of Americans now believe their votes were upended by a foreign power. There is no more serious charge against an elected official than treason. Then again, for decades before the 2016 election, Democrats argued that Republicans were literally killing their fellow Americans when cutting taxes, murdering the sick

After 100 days of accomplishing nothing but tax increases and bad headlines, the speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives boldly proclaimed her socialist Democratic caucus have the 2020 elections in the bag. Her faux confidence is misplaced; the past three months for her band of socialists were disastrous, (Snip) Democrats managed to call for over $100 trillion in new spending, but are so dysfunctional, they refuse to propose a budget outlining the payment plan for their radical agenda. Ridiculously, these socialists have spent weeks continuing to attack President Donald Trump’s budget proposal. Talk about hypocrisy.

What We Should Expect From The
Release Of The Full Mueller Report

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report is expected to be made public early this week. The big special counsel news already occurred last month when Attorney General William Barr announced Mueller ended his investigation without a single American, much less a single American tied to President Donald Trump, being indicted for collusion with Russia to steal the 2016 election. The news followed years of media coverage claiming Trump was an agent of Russian President Vladimir Putin and had colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton. That conspiracy theory led first to widespread spying on the Trump campaign

Rep. Ilhan Omar continues to be an embarrassment and a disgrace for me and other American Muslims with her outrageous, ignorant, anti-Semitic and now anti-American comments. And while Omar, a Minnesota Democrat, holds herself out as a proud Muslim, she repeatedly projects a distorted and patently Islamist interpretation of Islam – a religion that in reality stands for the values of justice, peace and ethical conduct.Sadly, Omar gives millions of Americans a false impression of what Islam is and what we Muslims believe and stand for.

Obama Judge Compares Trump to KKK
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/15/2019 5:38:07     Post Reply
When Chief Justice John Roberts pompously admonished President Trump last year, making the preposterous claim that we “do not have Obama or Trump judges,” Carlton W. Reeves evidently failed to get the memo. This Obama appointee to the United States District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi is a textbook example of a partisan jurist who ignores the law and the will of voters as expressed through their elected representatives. Indeed, Judge Reeves has now escalated his activism by attacking the President and comparing him to a long line of white supremacist Democrats and their partners in the KKK.

Meet Bernie Sanders, the millionaire

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders is in the spotlight this week with headlines about his large personal fortune. For most of the 77-year-old Vermont socialist’s political career, this is not a sentence you would have ever expected to encounter. He grew up respectably urban poor and his career before politics was pretty ragtag. As a municipal politician he set an example of relative austerity and closeness to the public: the townhouse in Burlington, Vt., that he still owns is nothing special. During his time in the U.S. Senate he has been famous for being the poorest member,

Ilhan Omar’s pathetic bid to play
victim after she downplayed 9/11
New York Post, by Editorial    Original Article

Democrats, Twitter and the national news media offered plenty of outrage Thursday over Rep. Ilhan Omar’s description of 9/11 as a day when “some people did something.” But they directed it entirely at The Post’s front page for exposing and highlighting Omar’s cavalier words. About the remark itself: total silence, with a few terse “no comments” from Democrats. Omar, echoed by her allies, played the victim, accusing us of “incitement.” Others claimed we took her remark “out of context.”

What Congresswoman Ilhan Omar said about Sept. 11 was disgraceful. She dismissed thousands of people being murdered like it was an everyday occurrence when she said “some people did something.” On 9/11/01 my son, firefighter Jimmy Riches was murdered along with close to 3,000 American citizens by Muslim terrorists.I rushed to Engine 4 in Lower Manhattan when I heard what was happening. That’s where my son worked. As I came over the Brooklyn Bridge, the towers had both already fallen. All the rigs at the firehouse were gone, so I knew they were all at the World Trade Center.

Utah representative Ben McAdams, a Democrat, warned ominously this week that a “day of reckoning is coming”. It’s the kind of sober language typically used to describe a climate crisis which – if we continue on with business as usual – could end human civilization as we know it. McAdams, though, was describing a decidedly less grave threat, if it can be considered a threat at all: the federal deficit. He and 26 other members of the so-called Blue Dog Coalition – centrist and fiscally-conservative Democrats – are pushing for a constitutional amendment

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) issued a statement Friday tearing into President Donald Trump over the Mueller report, declaring he was “sickened” by its findings. Romney wrote, in a statement posted to Twitter, that it was “good news” Mueller’s team found insufficient evidence to charge Trump with conspiring with Russia to influence the 2016 election. “The business of government can move on,” he said. “Even so, I am sickened at the extent and pervasiveness of dishonesty and misdirection by individuals in the highest office of the land, including the President,” Romney continued.

Attorney George Conway, husband of White House aide Kellyanne Conway, called on Congress to remove President Donald Trump from office following the Thursday release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. “What the Mueller report disturbingly shows, with crystal clarity, is that today there is a cancer in the presidency: President Donald J. Trump,” Conway wrote in a Washington Post opinion-editorial. “Congress now bears the solemn constitutional duty to excise that cancer without delay.” The frequent Trump critic went on to argue that Mueller’s findings lay out how the president committed wrongdoing disqualifying him from the presidency. “The investigation that Trump tried to interfere

The New York Yankees‘ anti-racism efforts have extended to pulling from their seventh-inning stretch a famous recording of the legendary Kate Smith singing “God Bless America.” Not because anyone has complained that the song is racist, but because Smith recorded other racially-insensitive standards from and during the Jim Crow era. The Yankees pulled Smith’s “God Bless America” from the rotation at the start of the season, but the New York Daily News reported the reason Thursday—“the Yankees were made aware of Smith’s history of potential racism.” According to the Daily News, the “potential racism” of which

The Flyers wasted little time in following the Yankees lead. A day after the Daily News reported the Yankees had stopped playing Kate Smith’s 1939 recording of “God Bless America” in the middle of the seventh inning over her racist lyrics, the NHL’s Flyers made the same call. And took the extra step of covering a statue in her honor outside the Wells Fargo Center. “We have recently become aware that several songs performed by Kate Smith contain offensive lyrics that do not reflect our values as an organization,” the Flyers said in a statement. “As we continue to look

A detailed report from special counsel Robert S. Mueller III said investigators struggled with both the legal implications of investigating President Trump for possible obstruction of justice and the motives behind a range of his most alarming actions, from seeking the ouster of officials to ordering a memo that would clear his name. [SNIP] “if we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state. Based on the facts and the applicable legal standards, we are unable to reach that judgment.”

So I think it´s a test for Democrats, including Mayor Pete, about how they can handle that type of direct adversity."

Clapper began by defending the foundation of the Russia probe, telling CNN anchor Anderson Cooper that there was “good reason” for intelligence agencies and law enforcement “to be concerned about whether or not there was some kind of conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians.”
