A desperate Beto O'Rourke
goes for broke, claims America
was founded on white supremacy

A failing campaign makes a man desperate, and Beto O’Rourke surely is a desperate man. The former Texas congressman was asked this week at roundtable event featuring immigrant and refugee participants to explain how President O'Rourke would fight white supremacy in the United States. "I know this from my home state, Texas, places that formed the Confederacy, that this country was founded on white supremacy,” the poorly polling 2020 Democratic primary candidate responded. He added, “And every single institution and structure that we have in this country still reflects the legacy of slavery and segregation and Jim Crow and suppression, even in our democracy."

If Cheeto is a current example of "white supremacy," minorities have nothing to worry about.

And if ALL the Black voters in the US voted for him, seeing as he his statement will turn all but a few non-blacks off, that should leave him with less then 10 percent of the population that would possibly vote for him. That is if ALL that 10 percent voted for him. The Black population in the US, according to the last census, put them at 12 percent. They do get out the vote, but still----

Any public speaker who might be mistaken at the lectern for a freestyle swimmer hasn't learned proper speaking technique, and is trying too hard. O'Rourke is a pitiable, low IQ character whose mouth is not connected to his brain. If hair and teeth rule, he's the ruler. If not, he's lost, because that's all he's got..

This is getting old. Did he sleep through History class in middle school? In the context of the 18th Century when this nation was founded slavery was widely practiced throughout the world and had been since antiquity. The US colonies were not in any way unique in this respect. Yes, slave were brought and kept here, just like everywhere else in the world. Most countries in the world at that time were ruled by hereditary monarchs. Individual rights and liberties for common people were not recognized, instead it was the "divine right of Kings". People were subjects of their ruler, not citizens of a country. This badmouthing of our country's founding is really getting stale. Nobody in the press is bothering to correct these idiots.

So Robert O'Rourke believes America was founded on white supremacy. This is the kind of statement one makes when one is ruled by their hatred instead of their brain. They make stupid ignorant statements like this. Tomorrow, it will be someone else making stupid ignorant statements. None of the Democratic candidates for President are qualified. None of them use their brains!

Everyone continues to get this wrong, conflating culture with race. So here’s the answer. Write it down. The issue in America, and everywhere else in the world, is culture. It is not race. Since culture is learned and not inherited, the problem is by definition not race. America when it was founded was infused with Western European culture. Western European culture is far and away superior to every other culture on the face of the earth. Some other cultures may have their own little charms, but Western European culture is superior to all of them. All of the problems in African American communities are cultural. They are traceable to specific elements of African American culture, which is a culture of ignorance, promiscuity, illegitimacy, violence, and failure. It celebrates, promotes, and perpetuates those negative and destructive characteristics. What we continue to view as the fruits of white racism are in fact the inevitable products of an inferior culture. Those African Americans who reject the central core of African American culture and assimilate into American/Western European culture, who get married before they have children, value education for themselves and their children, hold down jobs, and learn early the value of self-control, lay the foundations for happy and successful lives and they prosper like everyone else. Those who don’t reject African American culture, as well as those of other races who embrace it, fail. The glaring exceptions are those who promote the worst of African American culture through the entertainment and pop culture industries. They are handsomely rewarded for their betrayals. The problem is cultural, not racial.

Well said, #19!! I've been trying to tell people this for years. I have nothing against African Americans per se, but I do have a major problem with the thug culture that too many are entrenched in. I live in Atlanta (the heart of the city) and honestly, it's a daily struggle. From going to the grocery store to the gas station, and everywhere else in between. It's sad.

Once again, we hear from a Democrat how bad we all are and how unforgivable our sins . . . . with no mention the role the Democrat Party played in slavery, Jim Crowe, separate-but-equal, re-segregation of federal civil service, segregation of the military, Japanese-American internment, opposition to womens' suffrage, and opposition to the Civil Rights Act. It literally is the worst-of-the-worst telling us how bad we are.

Well actually Bob, there is an arguement that a practical and factual realization of Black supremacy played a role. You see Bob, as it turns out black Africans proved to be far more capable to survive the rigors of plantation slavery. A black slave cost about fifteen times that of an Irishman like you. It was about how well they could do the task, and they did it better that you or I could. It also turned out that the natives who were also acclimated to the climate and physically could have done the work wouldn't. Wouldn't you know it Bob, tending fields was women's work. Noble savages saved by their misogyny.

Beto could be technically correct, it's all in what your definition of "Supremacy" is. The white settlers from the Plymouth Rock era to the early 1800s had single shot muskets then rifles that quickly evolved to repeating rifles. The indigenous opposition had stone age weapons until they learned how to make deals for firearms by trading buffalo hides but by that time they had been killed off by the thousands and were outnumbered and outgunned by the descendants of the Pilgrims. I'm sure Beto did not reason this out, his intention was to pit Whites against Blacks, just as it is with the other 19 goofballs.

The idea that America was founded *** on *** white supremacy is wrong. White supremacy was not a reason that the colonists came to the New World. You might say that, for some, the idea of Christian supremacy, Catholic supremacy, or Protestant supremacy was a reason for settling the colonies. But white supremacy was beside the point. The first colonists didn't have black people on their minds at all, except in some theoretical sense. Ideas of white supremacy did exist in the world, of course. My guess is that African savages looked at themselves, when confronted by non-African travelers and their equipment and their other inventions, and decided that the whites just might have something going for them that they themselves did not. When comparing the great sea-faring ships of the whites to their own dugout canoes, for example, they might have wondered, "Now why can't/didn't we build that?" Same thing for weapons and even the wheel. No doubt they would have looked at any other non-colored races (including Asians) they encountered and thought the same thing. When confronted with some of the advancements of the Middle Easterners, they might have thought the same thing. They wouldn't have seen the Aztecs or Incas, as the Africans never crossed the oceans on their own. I don't give thoughts to white supremacy as a "foundation" at all.

Andrew Weissmann, who served as one of Robert Mueller’s top deputies on the Russia probe, offered a Ukrainian oligarch a sweetheart deal in 2017 in exchange for information on President Donald Trump, according to a new report. In July 2017, Weissmann, who has been labeled Mueller’s “pit bull” because of his aggressive prosecutorial style, met with attorneys representing Dmitry Firtash, an energy magnate who was indicted on bribery charges in 2014, reports The Hill. The story cites sources familiar with Weissmann’s offer and defense memos written in meetings with the prosecutor.

Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell’s long march towards remaking the federal judiciary is moving along. Just this week, the Third Circuit “flipped” to majority Republican-appointees, the Second Circuit is on the brink of flipping, and several other evenly split Circuits are likely to go Republican. Ed Whelan summarizes: As anticipated last fall when Judge Thomas Vanaskie announced his decision to take senior status, the Senate’s confirmation earlier this week of Peter Phipps to Vanaskie’s vacancy means that the Third Circuit will have a majority of its judges in active service—eight of fourteen—who were appointed by Republican presidents.

New Budget Deal Puts Final Nail

President Trump and congressional leaders are nearing a deal that would raise the discretionary-spending caps by $320 billion over two years and offset less than one-quarter of those costs (and even those offsets would take a decade to materialize). The budget deal would essentially repeal the final two years of the 2011 Budget Control Act and raise the baseline for future discretionary spending by nearly $2 trillion over the decade. This represents a fitting conclusion of the Budget Control Act — the crown jewel of the 2011 “tea-party Congress.” The decade-long shredding of these hard-fought budget constraints mirrors the shredding of Republican credibility on fiscal responsibility.The story begins

The recent tragic drowning in the Rio Grande of a young father from El Salvador, Óscar Alberto Martínez Ramírez, and his two-year old daughter Angie, sparked recriminations across the political spectrum. Democrats pounced on the Trump administration’s immigration policies, while President Trump blamed House Democrats’ failure to pass legislation to fix the nation’s immigration laws. Apart from the Washington rhetoric, El Salvador’s president blamed something else: his own country’s economic and crime challenges. While it is unlikely that the conditions El Salvador’s president describes would justify a migrant’s approval for asylum in the U.S., migrants keep coming. To obtain asylum, a migrant must establish a credible fear of persecution

Certain must-pass ideological litmus tests have arisen for the 25 declared candidates (so far) seeking the Democratic Party presidential nomination. Perhaps chief among them is subscription to the belief that the American criminal-justice system is racist and overly punitive. This Democratic unanimity makes sense in light of the criticism that many of the leading candidates have faced from activists, left-wing media, and other, more “woke,” presidential hopefuls for their earlier acceptance, or even endorsement, of proactive policing, quality-of-life enforcement, and incarceration as reasonable methods of combating crime.

The Washington Post made an editorial decision to label “racist” President Trump’s tweet suggesting that four radical, America-bashing congresswomen leave the country. The tweet isn’t racist, and the explanation for the editorial decision is so weak that it must be a pretext for printing “Trump” and “racist” together repeatedly in headlines and news stories. The Post’s ploy is annoying and amusing, at the same time. But there’s nothing funny about the Post’s editorial decision to call Antifa “antifascists.” Antifa calls itself antifascist but, as I argued here, a serious newspaper wouldn’t take their word for it. As Douglas Murray observes, the exact meaning of “fascist” is hazy because the word has been overused.

Since Jeffrey Epstein’s arrest last week, we’ve been inundated with disturbing revelations about how he allegedly abused underage girls for years in plain sight. The case is full of horrifying details, from Epstein’s elite social circle, to his private “Pedophile Island,” to his friendship with Donald Trump. But the part of the story that’s often missing is the voices of Epstein’s accusers. This is partly by design. Epstein and his lawyers have worked for years to keep his victims out of the press. According to the Miami Herald, Epstein’s accusers have already filed two-dozen lawsuits against him, some dating back at least as far as 2009.
