    As we reported earlier, Joe Biden told Politico that he might consider two of his former competitors as his running mate if he were to win the Democratic nomination for president. Former Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday he would consider former presidential candidates Beto OíRourke and JuliŠn Castro to be a running mate or a member of his Cabinet if he is elected president.
  • Like Kamala Harris, Cory Booker Never Had A Chance

    The recent announcement that Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) suspended his campaign for President of the United States should come as no surprise even to his supporters. Booker, like Sen. Kamala Harris, never had a chance. They would tell you it was because of racism and sexism in the case of Harris. I beg to differ. On a side note, I love the word choice candidates use when they are quitting their quest for the White House. The word ďsuspendedĒ is a temporary state. If a student is suspended from school, it means that at some point, the school will allow...

    Those racist Democrat voters just eliminated another protected minority candidate. ¬Ė A year ago today, the conventional wisdom among the D.C./New York City pundit class held that the Democrat 2020 presidential nomination would most likely end up being won by one of Kamala Harris, Irish Bob O¬íRourke or Cory Booker. As of today, all three formerly leading candidates are out of the race with the exit Monday morning that Booker is done. Yeah, the Senator from New Jersey only officially announced he was ¬ďsuspending¬Ē his campaign, but c¬ímon, we all know he¬ís done, and so does he. And thus, those...

    Craig Lang, who is charged with killing a Florida couple in 2018, has become a cause cťlŤbre in the country where he has fought as a mercenary. In the spring of 2015, former U.S. soldier Craig Lang traveled to Ukraine and joined a paramilitary group fighting the Russians. ďI never noticed any fear,Ē said Mamuka Mamulashvili, who commanded Lang in the Georgian Legion. Four years later, Lang is under house arrest in Ukraine. His situation has nothing to do with his conduct inside the eastern European country. Lang is facing charges in the U.S. for allegedly killing a Florida couple...

    There are some die-hard Beto OíRourke supporters in Texas who want him to run against Senator John Cornyn in 2020. I thought we were all past this conversation, but apparently we are not.The filing deadline date is December 9 so we are almost down to the wire here. Panic has set in with the political insiders who are reading polls. There are no current candidates who have filed to run against Senator Cornyn that come anywhere close to beating him in the 2020 general election. When Robert Francis OíRourkeís name is added into the mix, though, he comes within...

    Burning with the velocity of a prairie fire on a gusty Indiana day, Pete Buttigieg scorched the airwaves, seared the podcasts, and charred the press this week as he ignited his presidential campaign, temporarily torching his Democratic competition in the process. The secret to Buttigiegís publicity run was no secret, wrote Matthew Yglesias in Vox. Like Molly Bloom in his favorite novel, Ulysses, he canít stop saying ďyesĒóto media invitations. In recent weeks, heís appeared on a CNN town hall, Ellen, A-list podcasts and Morning Joe, and been featured in New York, POLITICO Magazine, the Atlantic and much more. But...

    Beto O'Rourke's pullout from the presidential race leaves the Democrats with, oh, a mere dozen and a half or so candidates available to run the country. The country's corresponding task is to keep awake for the remainder of the race. The pressing question is, or should be, what goes on here? What's the mission -- to can President Donald Trump or to move us in new, as yet hazy, directions? Or both at the same time? Beto -- or to use his baptismal name, Robert Francis -- typified the confusion. What was he trying to do? He'd lost, if narrowly,...

    At the end of this week, former Texas Congressman Beto OíRourke (D) formally announced he was dropping out of the Democratic primary race after pledging to take all our guns and punish churches for not condoning gay marriage. According to campaign finance records, OíRourke spent 14 million on his campaign, with clearly nothing to show for it! Campaign finance reports issued on September 30 showed that OíRourke spent $13,965,478, according to Open Secrets. While final numbers for his campaign have yet to be released, he likely surpassed $14 million in money spent int he 30 days following his last report,...

    With any luck at all, this will be the last time the Campaign Update ever pens a word about the Texas charlatan, Irish Bob O¬íRourke, or, as we love to call him around our house, el Pendejo Grande. His friends call him ¬ďBeto,¬Ē but as the new USA Today/Suffolk poll released on Friday clearly shows, Irish Bob¬ís ¬ďfriends¬Ē have all gone away now. O¬íRourke came in at ZERO in that poll, after the last handful of fawning fake journalists at Vanity Fair and the Houston Chronicle finally turned their amorous eyes towards Preacher Pete Buttigieg, and it seems that may...

    Former Representative Beto OíRourke of Texas is dropping out of the presidential race, ending a campaign in which he struggled for months to recapture the energy of his insurgent 2018 Senate candidacy on a national stage full of other big personalities and liberal champions. Mr. OíRourke made the decision to quit the race in the middle of this week, on the eve of a gathering Friday of Democratic presidential candidates in Iowa, according to people familiar with his thinking. He is not expected to run for any other office in 2020, despite persistent efforts by party leaders and political donors...

    GOP Sens. Ted Cruz (Texas) and Lindsey Graham (S.C.) criticized President Trump on Thursday for reportedly deciding to renew nuclear waivers for Iran. "This is disappointing and another lost opportunity to tear up the catastrophic Obama-Iran nuclear deal once and for all," the senators said in a joint statement tweeted by Cruz. "President Trump should immediately order his administration to stop issuing civil nuclear waivers."

    ‚ĀČÔłŹ The TRUTH about Beto's GUN CONFISCATION interview on the Breakfast Club Enough with the ¬ďWeapons of War¬Ē propaganda on the Breakfast Club. The AR-15 cannot be a weapon of war because the AR15 is exclusively a civilian rifle. The M16 is a military rifle used in war. The M4 is a military rifle used in war. The AR15 is a civilian sporting rifle made for Civilians. The AR in AR15 does not stand for Assault Rifle, it stands for Armalite rifle which is the company that initially designed it. Our Military does not use AR-15s. They use M16¬ís and...

    Gun control did not become politically acceptable until the Gun Control Act of 1968 signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson. The law's primary focus was to regulate commerce in firearms by prohibiting interstate firearms transfers except among licensed manufacturers, dealers and importers. Today's gun control advocates have gone much further, calling for an outright ban of what they call assault rifles such as the AR-15. By the way, AR stands for ArmaLite Rifle, which is manufactured by Colt Manufacturing Co. As for being a military assault weapon, our soldiers would be laughed off the battlefield carrying AR-15s. Let's...

    On Tuesday, the House of Representatives overwhelmingly voted to approve a measure that would shake up the Copyright Office if it were made into law, creating a small claims court where online content creators can go after their infringers. The Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement Act, or the CASE Act for short, was approved by 410-6 vote. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) introduced the measure last year with the goal of giving graphic artists, photographers, and other content creators a more efficient pathway toward receiving damages if their works are infringed. Under current law, all copyright suits must go through the...

    Former Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-TX) made himself a household name when he proposed a "mandatory buyback" of all AR-15s and AK-47s. He has continually pushed this so-called "plan" at various debates and during most media interviews. While talking with CBS News on Friday, Beto was asked, point blank, how he expects to fund his mandatory buyback program, should it become a reality. After all, AR-15s are the most common rifle in America. Assuming every single gun owner in American decided to comply Ė which is highly unlikely Ė he would need to come up with billions of dollars to pay...
