Beto Once Again Earns the Gratitude of the Republican Party

Desperate presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke is the gift that won’t stop giving to Republicans.

After promising to confiscate military-style semi-automatic rifles like our AR-15s, Thursday night he continued to reveal the left’s true colors with a vow to deny funding for religious institutions that oppose same sex marriage.

How about religious institutions that oppose atheism? I mean, isn’t that discriminatory?

Beto is a one-man GOP Get Out the Vote machine.

From last nights CNN LGBTQ Town Hall:

QUESTION: Do you think religious institutions like colleges, churches, charities, should they lose their tax exempt status if they oppose same sex marriage?”

BETO: Yes . . . There can be no reward, no benefit, no tax break for anyone or any institution, any organization in America, that denies the full human rights and the full civil rights of every single one of us. So as president, we’re going to make that a priority, and we are going to stop those who are infringing upon the human rights of our fellow Americans.”

Records Contradict Elizabeth Warren Claim She Was Fired for Being Pregnant

Turns out she was let go because she was Native American.

Okay, sorry, turns out she wasn’t fired at all.

According to the Washington Free Beacon:

RIVERDALE, N.J.—The Riverdale Board of Education approved a second-year teaching contractfor a young Elizabeth Warren, documents show, contradicting the Democratic presidential candidate’s repeated claims that she was asked not to return to teaching after a single year because she was “visibly pregnant.”

Minutes of an April 21, 1971, Riverdale Board of Education meeting obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show that the board voted unanimously on a motion to extend Warren a “2nd year” contract for a two-days-per-week teaching job. That job is similar to the one she held the previous year, her first year of teaching. Minutes from a board meeting held two months later, on June 16, 1971, indicate that Warren’s resignation was “accepted with regret.”

Warren’s claim that she was dismissed after her first year of teaching because she was pregnant has become a cornerstone of her stump speeches. She has used it to both explain her jump from teaching into the legal world as well as to showcase the difficulties that women face in the workplace. The principal of the school she worked at in the early 1970s, Warren has said, “showed [her] the door” at the end of the school year because she was “visibly pregnant.”

Wall Street would Oppose Warren if Biden Sinks

There are two silver linings to Trump to being impeached.

One is that it will energize his base, which doesn’t like the result of elections they won being overturned, which the Democratic have been trying to do for three years.

The second is that, given the focus on the Bidens’ nefarious activities in Ukraine, the scandal will put the nail in Joe’s political coffin and ensure Elizabeth Warren is the likely nominee.

This process was already in play, given Biden’s deteriorating mental state. But the Ukraine stuff, which is obviously corrupt, will finish him off.

And Warren is unelectable. I simply do not believe the American people are going to put such a leftist in office.

Meantime, Democratic money will dry up on Wall Street. Hollywood with make up for some of that. But it’s still quite damaging.

According to CNBC:

Democratic donors on Wall Street and in big business are preparing to sit out the presidential campaign fundraising cycle — or even back President Donald Trump — if Sen. Elizabeth Warren wins the party’s nomination.

In recent weeks, CNBC spoke to several high-dollar Democratic donors and fundraisers in the business community and found that this opinion was becoming widely shared as Warren, an outspoken critic of big banks and corporations, gains momentum against Joe Biden in the 2020 race.

“You’re in a box because you’re a Democrat and you’re thinking, ‘I want to help the party, but she’s going to hurt me, so I’m going to help President Trump,’” said a senior private equity executive, who spoke on condition of anonymity in fear of retribution by party leaders. The executive said this Wednesday, a day after Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the House would begin a formal impeachment inquiry into Trump.

Lucky Trump: He Has the Most Perfectly Awful Group of Opponents He Could Ask For

From a piece I have running on the “Think” section of the NBC News website:

Among the most enviable and least recognized qualities of a presidential candidate is something they share with lottery winners and bowling champions: a talent for dumb luck. And for those politicians blessed with this wholly undeserved and unearned gift, the most valuable form of it, the lucky break coveted over all others, is a lousy opponent.

President Donald Trump demonstrated such talent in abundance in 2016 when he faced the widely despised Hillary Clinton. For anyone who had trouble voting for Trump because of various concerns about his character, the alternative of punching a chad for Clinton made things much easier.

Trump looks all set to get lucky again once Democrats decide which of the current forlorn crop of candidates they want as their nominee in 2020. One, Andrew Yang, stooped so low during Thursday night’s Democratic debate in Houston that he decided to start buying votes, saying his campaign would shell out $1,000 a month for a year to 10 families.

Trump is but the latest in a history of presidential candidates bestowed by fortune with the perfect foil.

Ronald Reagan had Walter Mondale, who promised to raise taxes, the political equivalent of a hockey team putting the goalie on offense. George H.W. Bush had Michael Dukakis, a diminutive, robotic individual who offered a dispassionate answer about the death penalty when asked about his wife being raped and murdered and who staged a ludicrous photo op swallowed up by an M1 Abrams tank.

This is not to say Trump won’t earn the presidency. Or that he did not in 2016, either. He adroitly tapped into a gold mine of discontent with the established order, understanding the anger in the hinterland far better than the professional politicians and pundits who couldn’t see the problems with the establishment because they were part of it. But he also got lucky with his opponent — and he barely won.

Republicans Owe Beto O’Rourke a Grateful Hug

Beto O’Rourke is not going to win the Democratic primary. But his plan to confiscate guns from law-abiding citizen could destroy whoever does win it.

That’s because what conservatives have always suspected about Democrats is that in the end, what they want to do is abolish the Second Amendment and take away people’s guns. Beto provides evidence that this is exactly the case. And plenty of people will vote against the future Democratic nominee based on this concern.

Beto wants everyone’s AR-15’s. These among the most popular firearms. And plenty of good people want one not just because they are fun to shoot at the range, but because they want to make sure they are as well-armed as whoever breaks into there house.

Just imagine him sending the cops in to take those guns. Because that’s what he’ll have to do. Talk about a volatile situation.

Beto Wants a Mandatory Firearm Confiscation But Says Police Won’t Collect the Guns

Because people will cooperate, you see? And those who don’t cooperate, we won’t send in the cops. Except, maybe, if they need a little more convincing to voluntarily comply with the mandatory confiscation. Then maybe the police will stop by, you know, have some coffee, ask a few questions.

According to the Washington Examiner’s Kerry Picket, who asked the question:

“No. I don’t see the law enforcement going door to door. I see Americans complying with the law. I see us working with gun owners, non-gun owners, local, county, state, federal law enforcement to come up with the best possible solution. I have yet to meet an owner of an AR-15 who thinks it’s OK that we have these kind of mass killings in this country,” O’Rourke said when asked by the Washington Examiner about specifics of his plan.

When pressed further about how he plans to enforce his proposal for those who would not comply, he responded, “How do you — how do we enforce any law? There’s a significant reliance on people complying with the law. You know that a law is not created in a vacuum.”

Trump Terms His Challengers “The Three Stooges

President Trump has a new name for his GOP primary challengers, former South Carolina Rep. Mark Sanford, who announced his run Sunday, and ex-Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld and former Illinois Rep. Joe Walsh.

They are, The Three Stooges.

He’s pretty much right. But before you dismiss these characters, I’ve come to the conclusions that presidential campaign prognosticating these day is about as reliable as meteoroligists’ predictions about which way a hurricane will turn.

Anyway, here are some scenes of Walsh, Weld, and Sanford – sounds like a law firm – on the campaign trail together.

CNN Seeks to Drive Ratings Even Lower with 7-Hour Global Warming Town Hall

I’d say there is no better way to make people not care about global warming than to run seven hours of programming about it with the Democratic candidates. Anyway, that’s what CNN is doing. This long national nightmare started around 5 pm ET and goes until midnight. Even if you think climate change is going… Continue Reading
