Can Beto buy the election?

Can Beto buy the election Texas is the battleground for the soul of the nation

If you’re looking for a politician who wants to ban guns, allow illegal immigrants to flood across the borders, promote abortion-on-demand, and dramatically raise taxes, you don’t need to go to California or New York. You can find him in Texas, and he’s very close to officially buying the Senate race.

In case you haven’t heard of him, his name is Beto O’Rourke. Oh, who am I kidding? Everyone’s heard of Beto O’Rourke now that he’s a celebrity with powerful friends and more money than any Senate candidate, ever.

Judging by the narrowing polls, it’s clear that one simply needs a handsome face and a whole lot of money to spend in order to secure a seat on the United States Senate. Deep red Texas doesn’t believe in, well, anything that Beto is selling, but that doesn’t matter. It’s 2018. Elections can be bought.

Or can they? Hillary Clinton famously demonstrated in 2016 that having the most money doesn’t necessarily equate to victory. Did she spend it wrong? Was her adversary immune to the ads? Was her race the anomaly or is America done with being swayed in the wrong direction by bucket loads of money?

That’s the question that Texas will soon answer. It’s a question that has implications on the soul of American politics.

It would be different if O’Rourke had demonstrated significant leadership as a Representative, but his biggest critics are in El Paso whose residents have seen less of him than his out-of-state donors have. As is often the case with Democrats, he was anointed by the press based on his potential rather than his actions.

If Ted Cruz wins in Texas, things will be as they should be in the red state. If Beto O’Rourke wins, his gigantic war chest supplied mostly by contributors outside of Texas will demonstrate elections can still be bought in modern day America.

Following a terrible week for Michael Avenatti, his law firm has been evicted over past due rent

Following a terrible week for Michael Avenatti his law firm has been evicted over past due rent

Things were looking pretty bad for attorney Michael Avenatti last week. He was arrested for domestic abuse, making him the laughing stock on social media venues that he prizes as his public relations arm. His star client, porn star Stormy Daniels, is reportedly reconsidering her association with her lawyer. That was last week. This week is starting off badly as well.

His law firm has been evicted from their Newport Beach, California office building for skipping out on four months rent totally $213,000.

Avenatti’s law firm evicted from California offices over unpaid $213G rent

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/avenattis-law-firm-evicted-from-california-offices-over-unpaid-213g-rentMichael Avenatti’s law firm was ordered to be evicted from its California offices over unpaid rent after the judge dismissed his attempt to block the eviction, the latest setback for the embattled lawyer who was arrested on domestic violence charges earlier this week.

His law firm – Eagan Avenatti – was sued after skipping four months of rent payments totaling over $213,000.

My Take

As I was saying even before this latest round of bad news, Michael Avenatti needs to take a long break from the public eye. Even the best spin doctors couldn’t salvage his reputation in the short term. If he hopes to someday emerge into the public spotlight that he craves, he’ll need to take a break from being in the news and get some solid ground underneath him.

Many leftists supported him in his quests to take down the President, block Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation, launch a 2020 presidential run, and become a prominent face for the Democratic Party. It’s safe to say they backed the wrong horse.

Conspiracy Theory

Many Democrats support Mueller investigation without knowing what it’s about

“Trump stole the election!”

Two years and two elections ago, something happened that has Democrats scratching their heads even today. Hillary Clinton lost. She wasn’t supposed to lose. She was cheated some way, somehow.

This is what they hope to be proven by special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian influence in the 2016 elections. The problem is a majority of Democrats think the Russians did something that Mueller’s team isn’t even investigating because there’s absolutely no hint of a possibility that it could be true.

67% of Democrats believe “Russia tampered with vote tallies in order to get Donald Trump elected President.”

Let that sink in.

Robert Mueller Poll

If you believe Russia attempted to influence the elections by using social media and other venues to spread anti-Hillary rhetoric, you’re almost certainly correct. In fact, the Mueller investigation has assumed that to be true from the beginning. The question isn’t whether or not Russia tried to influence the elections in this way. It’s whether or not Americans helped them, in particular members of the Trump campaign.

What’s not being considered is whether or not Russia tampered with vote tallies. They did not. It’s not even a consideration in Mueller’s investigation, yet two-thirds of Democrats believe it to be true.

67% of Democrats can’t wait for Mueller to prove their theories correct even though he isn’t even investigating vote tally tampering at all. It’s reminiscent of the days after Obamacare was launched when Democrats asked, “Wait, it’s not free?”

Andrew Gillum concedes to Ron DeSantis in Florida gubernatorial race

It was arguably the most watched gubernatorial race in the nation this past midterm election season and it didn’t disappoint. It took a recount and multiple lawsuits to finish, but in the end Republican Ron DeSantis defeated Democrat Andrew Gillum.

The mayor of Jacksonville finally conceded for the second time today, nearly two weeks after election day. He already conceded once on election fight.

Jai, a Tallahassee park in the background and both dressed in Florida A&M University orange and green. Gillum first thanked his supporters. Then, he officially acknowledged Republican Ron DeSantis as the winner.

“R. Jai and I wanted to take a moment to congratulate Mr. DeSantis on becoming the next governor of the great state of Florida,” Gillum said in the video posted at about 5 p.m.

DeSantis Tweeted acknowledgement of the concession.

Florida is a bellwether for the 2020 presidential election. The closeness of the race and the apparent corruption in the state means both parties have a lot of work to do. The state needs to get their act together before then as well.
