Beto O’Rourke Calls It Quits

Original Article

Posted By: StormCnter, 11/2/2019 5:59:49 AM

We gather today to say a hearty RIP to the Beto O’Rourke political project, helmed by one Beto O’Rourke, who ran one of the most remarkable Senate campaigns and one of the most underwhelming presidential campaigns in modern American history—all in the space of about 31 months. Late on a Friday afternoon, O’Rourke and his loved ones made the decision to pull the plug, releasing a Medium post explaining why. “Though it is difficult to accept, it is clear to me now that this campaign does not have the means to move forward successfully,” he wrote.

Comments:

Even a Texas Monthly writer can't resist poking a little bit of fun. But the same writer doesn't understand or won't admit that O'Rourke only came fairly close in the Texas Senate race because so many good Texans had had enough of the sanctimonious opportunist Ted Cruz.

In 2015 the Puppet Masters had already decided who the Democrat nominee would be. The primaries and all the campaigns were just for show. In 2019 the Puppet Masters have already decided and know full well who their Democrat nominee will be. It was never going to be Beto.

This piece of work Beto is thankfully out of it now. I continue to shake my head as to how the dim party comes up with a cast of characters like these who proclaim they want to be president and will take our guns and triple our tax rate practically in the same sentence. While I still think Billary will stick her head out at times like a turtle (no offense Leader McConnell) to test the waters, her evil and criminal persona will soon slip under the waves. When you look at the remaining so-called candidates, not much there. But, the dims will have to nominate somebody while the dim party splits into two factions. VP Bite Me or Lizzie perhaps. They would have to nominate a radical leftist as VP running mate to keep their millennials and children happy. With another solid campaign by President Trump, he's in bigly.

What a shame that the democrat backers and Mrs. O'Rourke had to waste so much money promoting their JFK wannabe and he ends up dropping to the curb like his skateboard missed the railing and he suffered one of those YouTube nutcrackers. Three years and millions of dollars and they still can't produce a candidate who can do math or do anything that comes remotely close to what Donald Trump has already accomplished. The same old massive giveaways just do not have much appeal when people are told how much they will have to pay to support other people who must be trucked in to have their votes bought.

#14, I don't know if you live in Texas. What happened to Ted Cruz in Texas is that he had vowed not to use his Senate seat as a "stepping-stone" and after he was elected immediately began his campaign for the presidency. Not log after, he brought the Senate to a halt with his ill-advised psuedo-filibuster against Obama Care. By the time he was up for reelection, he was widely disliked in Texas. So, Beto's strong showing owed a lot to Ted-resentment. Now, however, I believe Senator Cruz got the message and has realized he has an obligation to the state he represents and he is doing a much better job.

I never watch liberals on television, ever. I never listened to or ever heard a complete two sentences from Obama for eight years. Last night on Laura Ingraham she bit farewell to Beto showing clips of him on the campaign and oh my. I couldn't believe what an immature idiot he was. It's takes a really stupid adult to fall for that silliness this doofus pedaled. O'Rourke made Bernie Sanders look sane. I also witnessed Elizabeth Warren the school teacher every hated in elementary school. That's another nut job with the flailing Orangutan arms karate chopping the air while lecturing/screeching like a wounded panther. Geez where do the democrats find these misfits?

I truthfully believe he was chosen by the Democrats for his overbite. As poster #13 says, "a Kennedy wannabe". Perhaps someone like Chris Matthews discovered him. Chris always remembers the Kennedy years as the best evah. Though I think Obama is his new idol. (When you think about it, a lot of people just want to "get someone in there", and then they'll figure out what role he'll play.)

Another Friday, another arrest for Jane Fonda and her celebrity friends. The 81-year-old actress and political activist spent Friday night in jail thanks to her participation in a Fire Drill Fridays protest on the steps of Capitol Hill. Fonda recently told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour that people around the world must come together and bring governments to a halt if “we can’t make them do the right thing.” Besides the fact that it is pie-in-the-sky kind of talk that all the countries around the world will band together to do anything, much less agree on what can be done to ease the effects of climate change, who died

Measles is alarmingly contagious: It’s spread through the air and can linger in a room for up to two hours after an infected person has left. The disease is responsible for more than a hundred thousand deaths each year among unvaccinated people. What’s more, danger still lurks even for those who survive an outbreak. Measles not only weakens your immune system in the short term, bouts with the virus seem to wipe your immune system's memory, causing the body to forget how to fight off things that you may have already conquered. For some people, this so-called immune amnesia may linger for months to years after an infection.

They’ve got a pan for that. Saturday Night Live poked fun at Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s plan to hike taxes to pay for her sweeping Medicare-for-all proposal on the show’s cold open Saturday night. Show favorite Kate McKinnon played the “She’s got a plan for that” presidential hopeful at a mock event in Iowa, excitably rolling up the sleeves of a red cardigan and mimicking the Massachusetts Democrat’s matronly tones. “Look at me, I’m in my natural habitat — a public school on a weekend,” she says, before teasing one-time rival Beto O’Rourke for being in her “dust” after dropping out of the race.

What Senator Elizabeth Warren has just unveiled is less a plan to pay for the costs of Medicare for All than a plan to hide them. A massive tax on all workers, including the middle-class ones she claims to shield from new taxes, will be disguised by the fiction that it applies only to their employers — a point her own economic advisers have in other contexts shown they grasp perfectly well. In the first hours since the plan’s release, the press has indicated it is ready to go along. Drug prices will be controlled, with consequences in reduced innovation that will cost lives and health

Another autumn, more fires, more refugees and incinerated homes. For California, flames have become the colors of fall. Free-burning fire is the proximate provocation for the havoc, since its ember storms are engulfing landscapes. But in the hands of humans, combustion is also the deeper cause. Modern societies are burning lithic landscapes - once-living biomass now fossilized into coal, gas and oil - which is aggravating the burning of living landscapes. The influence doesn't come only through climate change, although that is clearly a factor. The transition to a fossil fuel civilization also affects how people in industrial societies live on the land and what kind of fire practices they adopt.

Security flaws in the service, called GEDmatch, not only risk exposing people’s genetic health information but could let an adversary such as China or Russia create a powerful biometric database useful for identifying nearly any American from a DNA sample.

A hungry herd of 500 goats has helped save the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library from the California wildfires. In May, the library hired the goats to clear flammable scrub surrounding the complex as a preventative measure. The goats ate the brush, creating a fire break that slowed the flames and gave firefighters extra time to react. The library near Los Angeles was threatened by the Easy Fire, the latest in a spate of fires causing evacuations and power cuts across the state. The caprine contractors included Vincent van Goat, Selena Goatmez and Goatzart. They helped save exhibits including an Air Force One jet and a piece of the Berlin Wall.

A sharply divided House voted Thursday to approve a resolution setting "ground rules" for the impeachment inquiry into President Trump, putting lawmakers on record over the contentious process while setting the stage for proceedings to move into the public eye after weeks of closed-door depositions. The measure passed largely along party lines, 232-196. Two Democrats defected on the vote. The first formal floor vote in relation to the impeachment probe announced a month ago by Speaker Nancy Pelosi followed a fierce debate in the chamber, where Republicans accused Democrats of launching a de facto "coup" against the president in a "pre-ordained" bid to overturn the results of the 2016 election.

The road winds and curves past a convenience store, a school, a library, and a post office. There are no shopping plazas, fast food restaurants, office buildings, or apartment complexes here.

Elizabeth Warren is the current favorite for the Democratic presidential nomination, but one wonders how voters will react when they learn about her bizarrely radical agenda. Warren openly advocates making all private health insurance–the kind that a large majority of Americans have–illegal. She hasn’t begun to think through the implications of this extreme proposal, but when voters begin to contemplate it, my guess they will vote against her, enthusiastically. Yesterday Warren was asked what would become of all those people who are now employed in the health insurance industry. Her answer shows her ignorance of insurance, as well as of the economy in general:

Some supporters of President Trump have adopted the following defense of the (at times) nasty, over-the-top rhetoric Trump uses against his adversaries: Trump is “no Mr. Nice Guy,” but “sometimes it takes a Donald Trump to change Washington.” In fact, Trump’s recently released campaign ad makes this pitch in just that language. As a means of making ethical Trump supporters feel better about backing the president, this defense has appeal. But is there anything to it? Not much. Ronald Reagan changed Washington without being Trump-like. Headline corrected*
