Beto O’Rourke Campaign Claims
Breitbart Reporter Ejected
to Protect Black Students

Original Article

Posted By: M2, 8/29/2019 6:22:29 AM

The flailing 2020 presidential campaign of former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (D-TX) claimed Wednesday that a staffer ejected Breitbart News senior editor-at-large Joel Pollak from a speech at Benedict College, a historically black college, to protect black students. In a statement Wednesday, O’Rourke’s press secretary, Aleigha Cavalier, attempted to defend against the growing controversy stemming from Pollak’s removal, claiming that while the candidate “believes in the right to a free press,” Breitbart News “walks the line between being news and a perpetrator of hate speech.”

Poor, poor, ignorant, black students; they need a fake hispanic to protect them from evil Breitbart. What they need is protection from the likes of fake Beto. Too bad too many black people love kool-aid.

Is it politically incorrect for a fake Mexican to show up in blackface ? If not that's probably his next move.

Presidential candidate and spiritual guru Marianne Williamson was caught on tape saying conservatives and Fox News are nicer to her than some on the Left. Appearing on Sinclair’s America This Week, Williamson was played a clip where she had previously appeared on the same show and was caught in a hot-mic moment. “What does it say that Fox News is nicer to me than the lefties are? What does it say that the conservatives are nicer to me? It’s such a bizarre world,” Williamson said. “You know, I’m such a lefty. I mean, I'm a serious lefty, but they’re so ...

The Rev. Robert Jeffress, pastor of First Baptist Church in Dallas, has made himself into a cable news celebrity by denouncing Democrats as "godless" and "liberal" and hailing President Trump as the best friend for people of faith. While Democrats have embraced the so-called nones -- those with no religious affiliation -- the party seems to have gone out of its way to drop the word "liberal." Twenty Democratic presidential primary candidates debated in June for a total of four hours. They also debated for another four hours in late July. The number of times that any of those candidates (or the moderators) used the word "liberal": just once.

August 2017, Charlottesville: Police disappear even as belligerents advance toward each other, and fighting in the streets begins. The same tactic had been used successfully in Ferguson and Baltimore. Who but President Obama and the respective governors could have given the orders to stand down? Who else but mayors and police chiefs could have expedited such counterintuitive commands? Democrats got their optics. CNN could chant each day that the USA is full of white nationalists and right-wing criminality. Obama must've been proud. Anyone could see that white supremacists lurked on every street.

It’s been a tough few weeks for CNN. Who knew pushing fake news could be so challenging? First, they tried to turn President Trump into a rube for suggesting that Alabama could be in the path of Hurricane Dorian. It turns out that CNN suggested the same thing, a few days before Trump did, warning Alabama to “be on the lookout”. Then came the fiction that Trump outed a Russian informant. Instead the reality was that the decision on any outing or exfiltration occurred before Trump became president. We know whose watch this occurred on, but CNN chose to instead blame the current president.

Former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s lead defense attorney argued in court Tuesday that she is seeking to have the entire prosecution against Flynn “dismissed for egregious government misconduct and long-time suppression” of exculpatory evidence. Flynn’s attorney, Sidney Powell, said in a status conference in federal court in Washington D.C. that “there never would have been a plea to begin with if the government had disclosed Brady information about what it knew before the plea agreement.” The “Brady material” mentioned in the complaint is in reference to the “Brady v. Maryland” Supreme Court case that established the government must turn over all exculpatory evidence. Flynn pleaded guilty to making false statements

Thursday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” HBO host and comedian Bill Maher previewed the Democratic presidential debates slated for later that evening. “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough asked Maher what he was looking for in the presidential candidates, to which Maher said strength and noted that was what President Donald Trump projects. “Strength,” Maher replied. “You know, I think people vote not on policy. I don’t think a lot of them know a lot of the policy. I think they look for strength versus weakness and what they perceive as strength. So that’s what I’m always looking for in the Democrat. That’s what I think they like about Trump.

The story is as old as politics and sports. A politician goes campaigning in a far-off land and seeks to gin up the audience by invoking local, beloved sports lore — only to get it all wrong. Sure as the Washington Redskins will lose their next game, those voters punish the politician 10 times more grievously for that single sports gaffe than if he had, say, blundered some vitally important fact about deficits or nuclear weaponry. In 2004, John Kerry was in Wisconsin when he butchered the name of the Green Bay Packers’ hallowed Lambeau Field, calling the stadium “Lambert” Field.

South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg is on a mission to ensure America knows Republicans don’t have a monopoly on faith. At last week’s CNN climate change town hall, he was the only 2020 Democratic presidential candidate to mention God’s creation as a reason to care for the Earth, saying: If you believe that God is watching as poison is being belched into the air of creation, and people are being harmed by it, countries are at risk of vanishing in low-lying areas, what do you suppose God thinks of that? Taking care of the Earth doesn’t mean employing extreme progressive environmental policies, but Buttigieg’s passion for creation as a God-given gift

Joe Biden’s billing as the moderate-in-residence of the Democratic primary is a telling statement on the breakneck speed at which the party is radicalizing. His platform offers proof. A Tuesday report in McClatchy compared Biden’s 2020 platform to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 platform, finding the former vice president’s policy prescriptions have drifted leftward from the former secretary of state’s. “From health care to climate change to criminal justice, Biden has proposed ideas more ambitious and liberal than policies supported by Hillary Clinton in the 2016 campaign,” the article declared.

Far-left MSNBC and CNN lost nearly a third of their respective primetime audiences when compared to this same week last year, reports TVNewser. While Fox News only lost five percent of its already mammoth primetime audience last week, MSNBC collapsed by an incredible 31 percent, while CNNLOL lost more than a quarter of its viewers, 26 percent. In total day, Fox lost just eight percent of viewers, compared to MSNBC’s collapse of 27 percent and CNNLOL’s 19 percent crater.

Early Monday morning, Donald Trump tweeted: “94% Approval Rating in the Republican Party, a record. Thank you!” Where the president got this specific number remains a mystery. Recent polls by YouGov put his GOP approval roughly ten points lower, and Gallup, which has tracked Trump’s popularity since he took office, puts him at 88 percent. But I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised that Trump used his Sharpie to round up his score. He’s deeply invested in being — or at least claiming to be — the most popular Republican president in history.

The commemorations take place on Ashura, the tenth day of the first month of the Islamic calendar. They mark Husayn's death at the Battle of Karbala, fought between Husayn and Yazid I on October 10 680AD to determine who should succeed the prophet as the leader of Islam.

Hillary Clinton visited an art exhibit in Venice, Italy this week which displayed 60,000 pages of her ’emails’ she sent over her private server. The artist, Kenneth Goldsmith, printed up 60,000 pages of Hillary Clinton’s emails that somehow managed to survive her BleachBit spree and called the exhibit, “HILLARY: The Hillary Clinton Emails.” “Donald Trump said, ‘Where are her emails? Lock her up!’ And I said, ‘You know what?

The September 11, 2001 attacks were the result of an unmitigated intelligence failure. No, 9/11 was not an “inside job,” as many conspiracy theorists believe. Osama bin Laden and his al-Qaeda network were responsible. But, the 9/11 plot did not happen in a vacuum. In reality, America’s elephantine national security state had known of bin Laden and his network years before the horrific events of 9/11. Some of the most powerful people in the national security state routinely downplayed and ignored the threat al-Qaeda posed to the United States before 19 hijackers murdered 2,911 people in New York, Washington, and Pennsylvania.

President Donald Trump is reportedly fed up with the homeless camps that dot the California landscape and wants to move the residents into some form of transitional housing. The camps are not only an eyesore but contribute to lawlessness. The problem has intensified over the summer and Trump is apparently ready to move beyond criticizing the state’s lack of response to proving solutions, sources told the Washington Post Tuesday. Those sources did not say what exactly the administration would do and did not care to speculate whether California and municipal governments would be anxious to collaborate with a president who has consistently blamed them for the homelessness plight in the state.
