    The official launch of former Texas congressman Beto O’Rourke’s presidential campaign has been marked by a series of very bad new cycles, briefly interrupted by some quite positive ones. After disappearing for weeks on some sort of Simon and Garfunkle vision quest to explore his own feelings and find the Real America, O’Rourke decided that he was “born to run” for the presidency. And that’s when the oppo research started dropping. Some of it involved things we’d already learned during his Senate campaign, but those were mixed in with brand new and disturbing revelations.But that’s all behind him now....

    Beto O'Rourke raised $6.1 million in the first 24 hours of his presidential campaign, his campaign said Monday, in what amounts to the largest announced first-day haul of any 2020 Democratic contender to date. The former Texas congressman raised $6,136,763 in online donations from all 50 states in the first day, his campaign said. That tops the $5.9 million one-day total Sen. Bernie Sanders announced after he launched his campaign. The closest other 2020 Democratic candidate to publicize their first-day fundraising total was California Sen. Kamala Harris at $1.5 million.

    President Trump called former Vice President Joe Biden “another low I.Q. individual” for accidentally admitting in a speech on Saturday that he was entering the Democratic presidential race. “Joe Biden got tongue tied over the weekend when he was unable to properly deliver a very simple line about his decision to run for President. Get used to it, another low I.Q. individual!” Trump tweeted Monday. Speaking at a Delaware Democratic Party fundraiser, Biden defended his political stance against critics who say he would be a moderate if he ran among the current crop of Democratic candidates.

    DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) — Back when he was still just teasing a presidential run, Beto O’Rourke told Vanity Fair he was “born to be in” the race. Now that he’s campaigning to far greater media attention and much larger crowds than many Democrats who’ve been competing longer, they are taking offense at the former Texas congressman’s sense of entitlement.Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar drew the sharpest such contrast on Sunday, saying “I wasn’t born to run. But I am running” while acknowledging, “Oh, that’s the Beto line.”“No, I wasn’t born to run for office, just because growing up in the ’70s,...

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday ruled out a US Senate bid in 2020, saying he'll "be the secretary of state as long as President Trump gives (him) the chance to serve as a senior diplomat." "I love doing what I'm doing. I have great warriors around the world, trying to deliver for the American people," Pompeo said on NBC's "Today." "It's ruled out. I'm here. I'm loving it," he said.

    Beto O’Rourke is many things. But he is definitely not a fighter. And that’s why it would be a huge mistake for the Democrats to nominate him to take on President Trump in 2020 for the White House. Simply put, Beto cannot beat Donald Trump. Someone else, maybe. But not Trump. It’s not Beto’s fault he’s not a fighter. After all, he’s led a very charmed, privileged life as a white male. He’s faced very little adversity. He didn’t come from nothing. He didn’t have to fight and scrape his way to the top because of his gender or race...

    **SNIP** "We need a new president, and we need a president committed heart and soul to the climate crises," Gore said during an activist training conference in Atlanta hosted by his nonprofit, nonpartisan Climate Reality Project. "I'm very happy that so many of the Democratic candidates have made it clear that's the way they would intend to govern if they won." Trump's presidency "is unfortunate in so many ways," Gore said, but he also credited Trump's open contempt of the scientific consensus that human activity affects the Earth's atmosphere with pushing many moderates and even some conservatives toward the more...

    A new study reveals the most intolerant county in America is not Rabun County in northeastern Georgia, where the film “Deliverance” was shot. “Nor was it Albany County, Wyoming, where Matthew Shepard was killed. And it was not Tallahatchie County, Mississippi, where Emmett Till was lynched more than a half-century ago,” explained a report by the Foundation for Economic Education. It’s Suffolk County, Massachusetts, and its mostly white population of just under 800,000 that includes the heart of the Boston-Cambridge-Newton region. “Politically, Suffolk County is about as progressive as America gets. The county’s three congressional districts – the 5th, 7th,...

    Via the Free Beacon, you are not hallucinating. This actually happened.In fact, that’s not the most surreal part. The surreal part is that this is obviously the answer John Hickenlooper should have given when he was recently asked whether he’s a capitalist and botched it royally. Read that again: A twice-elected governor from a swing state is less politically adept than Elizabeth Warren.If I were him I’d drop out today in shame.On Earth 2, Warren is being asked this same question amid news that Bernie Sanders has decided to pass on running for president again in 2020. How does...

    Yesterday, Beto (Robert) O'Rourke announced his candidacy for the presidency. Only six months ago, he said he would not run. Increasing the field by another white heterosexual will help dilute the already crowded field. Hopefully, many more Democrats will choose to run soon. Maybe the next will be former Vice President Biden. Here is the benefit of Beto's announcement. Beto is the new rock star on the left. He cannot stake a moderate position, as he has already supported the usual extreme positions that most of his opponents have previously enumerated. But his most ardent followers are younger and highly...

    Watching the Jeep Super Bowl commercial several times, it suddenly became clear, President Trump is on his way to a 45 state landslide.You are way out over your skis, some will say. Get this guy some smelling salts!What about the nonstop investigations? What about Stormy Daniels and Robert Mueller? What about the angry Left and their apologists in the national media? What about Mr. Trump’s prickly, in your face persona? What about the feckless Congressional Republicans and the never Trumpers? What if the trade talks with the Communist Chinese come up empty? Watching the Jeep ad, it became crystal clear. None...

    Charlotte Riley, who teaches history at the University of Southampton, penned an interesting op-ed in the New Statesmen last month where she literally suggested standing in the way of busy males on their morning commute to help resist perceived patriarchy in society. According to Riley, such tactics are necessary because males have naturally been raised to believe they have a “right to occupy space.” “The point is that men have been socialised, for their entire lives, to take up space. Men who would never express these thoughts out loud have nevertheless been brought up to believe that their right to...

    MANCHESTER, N.H. — New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand officially entered the ever-growing pool of Democratic presidential hopefuls Sunday, ending the two-month-long exploratory phase of her campaign saying she’s running for the White House to make “big, bold, brave choices.” “Our anthem asks a question, forcing every generation to make a choice,” Gillibrand says in a video released Sunday morning. “Will brave win? Let’s answer for ours." **SNIP** After Sunday’s video announcement, Gillibrand heads to Michigan on Monday for an MSNBC town hall with Chris Hayes; to Iowa on Tuesday and Wednesday; and to Nevada on Thursday.

    For years security professionals and election integrity activists have been pushing voting machine vendors to build more secure and verifiable election systems, so voters and candidates can be assured election outcomes haven’t been manipulated. Now they might finally get this thanks to a new $10 million contract the Defense Department’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has launched to design and build a secure voting system that it hopes will be impervious to hacking. The first-of-its-kind system will be designed by an Oregon-based firm called Galois, a longtime government contractor with experience in designing secure and verifiable systems. The system...

    This week’s White House Report Card finds President Trump under fire from some in his own party over his national emergency declaration to build the wall but a step ahead of the crowd of Democrats hoping to unseat him in the 2020 election. Democratic pollster John Zogby, who weekly grades the president along with conservative analyst Jed Babbin, said that while Trump continues to struggle in the polls, the Democrats aren’t offering a credible alternative. “Trump will be hard to beat,” he said in his grade comments. He noted that the president isn’t polling well in the states he shocked...

    Donald Trump Jr. is defending Chelsea Clinton after the former first daughter was blasted by NYU students who blamed her tweet for the New Zealand mosque attacks. “It’s sickening to see people blame @ChelseaClinton for the NZ attacks because she spoke out against anti-Semitism,” Trump tweeted Saturday. “We should all be condemning anti-Semitism & all forms of hate. Chelsea should be praised for speaking up. Anyone who doesn’t understand this is part of the problem.” The political foes became bedfellows after an NYU student confronted Clinton, who is pregnant with her third child, at a Friday night vigil for the...

    ‘Wax My Ass, Scrub My Balls’ --- This Beto O’Rourke Poem Is Beyond Belief Beto O’Rourke’s recently unearthed membership in the hacking group “Cult of the Dead Cow” may not have included the “edgiest sorts of hacking activity,” but it did, apparently, include writing murder fantasies and exceptionally bad poetry. Writing under the now-exposed pseudonym “Psychedelic Warlord,” a teen-aged O’Rourke appears to be the author of a poem titled “The Song of the Cow,” published in 1988 by “cDc (Cult of the Dead Cow) communications.” “I need a butt-shine,” the poem begins … and it really all just goes downhill...
