Even leftists are starting to realize Beto ORourke is just a personality without a clue

It’s official. Beto O’Rourke is running for President and all of the Betomaniacs who supported him during his run for U.S. Senate in Texas can now rejoice. But many on the left have been questioning his policy proposals, or more specifically, his lack thereof.

Even leftist news outlet Slate ran with a damaging headline, “Beto 2020 Has No Reason to Exist.” While I adamantly disagree with Slate’s general perspectives on the country and how to fix our problems, I’ve come to believe they’re one of the few leftist outlets that actually thinks about what they’re proposing. They may be wrong, but at least they’re thoughtful about their perspectives.

On O’Rourke, author Josh Voorhees (not related to Jason as far as we know) compiled an impressive list of problems with O’Rourke’s candidacy. First and foremost, he’s done nothing and so far hasn’t proposed to do anything concrete. Supporters might say it’s too early in the game for him to have concrete answers on policy questions, but considering he just ran for United States Senate without having concrete ideas of what he’d do if he won, what’s to make us believe he’ll come up with good ideas for a presidential run?

Then again, perhaps he always knew he was going to lose the Senate race. Perhaps it was just a way to hit the campaign and fundraising trails so he could prepare for a presidential run. Maybe he was intentionally vague because he didn’t want to get locked into Texas politics when he had national politics in mind on his horizon.

Nope. I’m not buying any of that. I’m agreeing with Voorhees that O’Rourke legitimately has no idea what he believes or how he’ll make the grand changes he’s been hinting at for a while. Remember, he’s not someone new to politics. He spent three terms in the House of Representatives where he did essentially nothing. This isn’t a guy holding his cards close to the vest. This is a guy who doesn’t have any cards yet and is hoping nobody notices.

Unfortunately, that may actually be the case. There may not be enough people in the Democratic Party willing to check to see if he has any cards. He has a glowing personality that makes him instantly likable when people talk to him directly as well as when he speaks publicly. He seems like a guy on the edge of politics, a skater who has a leadership role on student council. This has been one of his greatest strengths.

What if it’s his only strength?

Most leftist outlets are missing this about O’Rourke. Conservative news needs support to drive the narrative if O’Rourke does, indeed, win the nomination. Even if some on the left are starting to recognize his flaws, they’ll be the first ones to keep them hidden if he’s up against President Trump in the general election.

The crowded Democratic field should worry about him because of his extreme talent in raising funds. No Senate campaign has come close to raising what he brought in for the midterm elections. If he applies that to the 2020 presidential primaries, he has an opportunity to compete with Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and former Vice President Joe Biden in the money race. The latter, who hasn’t indicated if he will run or not, could end up helping O’Rourke if he doesn’t throw his own name in the hat. Of all the major candidates so far, O’Rourke is the closest to Biden’s liking thanks in part to President Obama’s own interest in the guy some were calling the next iteration of the last Democratic President.

Some on the left are starting to wonder if O’Rourke has any actual ideas. The only concrete one he’s proposed so far is taking down border walls that currently exist. It could mark the beginning of a campaign to take the nation backwards as quickly as possible.

Will you help revive the American Conservative Movement?

Cory Booker in the aggregate: Propagating the ’mass shooting every day’ deception

Published

Cory Booker In the aggregate Propagating the mass shooting every day deception

Witness the formation of a false talking point by continual repetition.

Presidential candidate Cory Booker et al. has repeated the same line of ‘a mass shooting every day, in the aggregate’ for the past few weeks in various town halls and interviews. Like most Leftist talking points, this absurd assertion has been carefully constructed to foment a pithy little saying unmoored from reality. The fact is, the Liberty grabber Left exploites every mass shooting to maximum effect, to the point that they have begun to regularly use ‘anniversaries’ of these tragedies to push for more controls over our freedom.  Even in this case, it has it’s own escape clause of ‘in the aggregate’ if anyone is ever called on this deception..

Just for reference, this is the Oxford English dictionary entry for the phrase ‘in (the) aggregate’

In total; as a whole.

Again, even here reality isn’t too kind to the Left. The fact is, there hasn’t been a ‘mass shootings in the aggregate every day.’ Or ‘mass shootings In total every day.’ As in this video at the 5:10 mark.

This is as yet another case where the Left doesn’t care about the truth of the matter, only the setting of a certain perception in the public consciousness. It doesn’t matter that each and every mass shooting is exploited from beginning to end. Or that even the hint of one taking place will see news bulletins instantly going out over the wire.

That plain fact doesn’t stop Leftists from trying to promulgate the false perception of gun violence being an overwhelming ‘epidemic’ that demands the immediate implementation of drastic measures.

Repeating a lie doesn’t make it true.

Despite the admonitions from infamous Leftists Adolph Hitler and Vladimir Lenin, repeating a lie doesn’t make it the truth, but it is part and parcel for Leftists to traffic in lies. The fact is, mass shootings are rare, no matter what kind of creativity in defining these distinctive events to include just about anything imaginable.

The plain fact is that Leftists need ‘serious crisis’ in order to ratchet down our Liberty. When reality fails to meet their needs, they just make up their own ‘in the aggregate’. Never mind that there aren’t mass shootings every day, the national socialist Left would like that to be the perception so they can push their gun confiscation agenda. They push the ‘gun violence is a unique problem in the states’ even though other nations are far more violent, but as they drift further and further into insanity their grip on reality has become that much more tenuous.

Bill de Blasio campaign launch sputters. Even his YouTube channel has under 100 subscribers.

Published

on

It’s been about 24 hours since New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio launched his presidential campaign, and it’s off to a strange start. First, the excitement level has been hovering somewhere south of none. Then, he was clowned in his own city by Late Show host Stephen Colbert.

Not to be outdone, Jimmy Kimmel joined in on the bashing.

The morning after his launch is treating the Democrat any kinder. He’s waking up to headlines like “De Blasio unites America — against his presidential bid” and “Doesn’t anyone like Bill de Blasio?

But arguably the most embarrassing indictment of how poorly his campaign is being received is on his own YouTube channel. As of the time of this article, a full day after he announced, he’s been able to accumulate 87 subscribers.

President Trump has been giving him plenty of attention, but perhaps it’s time to stop. Bill de Blasio is not going to be a contender for the Democratic nomination. Even 76% of people in his own city don’t want him to be President.

Missed signals can lead to tragedy!

Missed signals can lead to tragedy!

Major Nidal Malik Hasan was a U.S. Army psychiatrist who gave PowerPoint presentations opposing American war efforts in Middle East. On November 5, 2009 he went on a shooting rampage of his fellow soldiers killing 13 adults and one pre-born baby at Fort Hood, Texas.

Warning signs had been ignored.

Edward Snowden was a contractor for the U.S. National Security Agency at the tunnel in Hawaii. As an I.T. specialist, he tricked high-level superiors into revealing their passwords. He then stole national secrets and fled the country with them. If an NCIC warrant had been timely obtained, or if U.S. Customs and Border Protection had been alerted immediately, he would have been intercepted on a constitutional warrantless outbound border search at Honolulu International Airport.

Warning signs had been ignored.

Bradley Manning was a U.S. Army soldier convicted of violating the Espionage Act by revealing classified information to Julian Assange of WikiLeaks. Manning’s “lawyers discussed a psychological assessment report that describes him as having ‘regressed stages of development’ and ‘narcissistic personality traits.'”

Warning signs had been ignored.

Major Tulsi Gabbard is a Commissioned Officer in Hawaii National Guard. She is simultaneously U.S. Representative for Hawaii’s 2nd Congressional District. She is now running for the Democrat nomination for President of the United States and Commander-in-Chief.

Concerns have previously been articulated concerning a possible violation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

Tulsi's YouTube screenshot

She has released two videos this week accusing President Trump and National Security Advisor John Bolton of provoking a war against Iran. She has also condemned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley.

“Trump ~ eager for war with Iran”

“The US must NOT go to war with Iran”

Over a month ago she released two videos regarding Julian Assange.

“Wikileaks/Assange. Be quiet or else.”

“Assange Arrest: Toe the Line or Go to Jail.”

Major Gabbard apparently does not understand why the United States government classifies sensitive information and controls who may or may not release it. If she is called to active duty in Hawaii National Guard and sent to fight Iran, can you depend upon her loyalty?

General Logan's contact info

Hawaii Adjutant General Arthur “Joe” Logan wears multiple hats. He was appointed by Hawaii Governor David Ige to serve as Hawaii Homeland Security Advisor with responsibility for Hawaii Emergency Management Agency. He is also in charge of Hawaii National Guard.

Major Tulsi Gabbard is under his Command. The onus is upon Maj Gen Logan to hold her accountable under UCMJ. It is also incumbent upon Governor Ige to ensure that this issue is addressed by her chain-of-command.

Warning signs were ignored with Major Hasan.

Warning signs were ignored with Edward Snowden.

Warning signs were ignored with Bradley Manning.

Warning signs with Major Gabbard must NOT be ignored.
