    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...

  • Ha! Hereís How Much Beto Spent On His Campaign Before Pathetically Dropping Out

    11/04/2019 6:09:49 AM PST · by MarvinStinson · 42 replies
    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...

    NYT ^ | 11/1/19 | Alexander Burns
    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."

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.

    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...

    Following the fourth Democratic debate in Westerville, Ohio, BlazeTV's Eric Bolling questioned candidates Beto O'Rourke and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) about their support for a gun confiscation policy, and asked billionaire presidential candidate Tom Steyer why he thinks the economy isn't thriving under President Donald Trump. "Congressman, can you please clarify how you will get the ARs and AKs back," Bolling asked O'Rourke. "I expect our fellow Americans to follow the law. If you own and AR-15, if you own an AK-47, and it is no longer legal to own that, I expect you to turn it in," O'Rourke said....

    Watch Alisyn closely, sheís not listening to beto nor does she care what heís saying, her only goal is to get him to say that he wants to confiscate guns so she can marginalize him away from the democratic party. CNN never challenges Pro Gun Control politicians like this, but now that BETO is saying out loud what they ultimately want to do they have to discredit him and make him seem crazy. Granted he is, but this whole, ďMass Shooters donít follow laws bitĒ is something we in the gun community have been saying for years and the far...

    Bye bye Biden. As Joe stinks to 19 percent and 22 percent in the latest Monmouth (8/26) and Economist/UGov (8/21) polls, putting him in a statistical tie with Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren for the first time, there is an opening for former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in the Democratic primary. Hereís how it might come about: Step One: Biden fades into a tie with Sanders and Warren (already happening) and then falls to third place. Biden has no way to come back. He is the candidate of events that happened between 2008-2016. If the past is not...

    William Buckley once said he would rather be governed by the first 2,000 people in the Boston phone book than the entire Harvard faculty. After watching the October 15 Democratic Party presidential candidate debate, I would rather have as president any of the first 2,000 in any phone book in any city in the USA than the present weird bunch of Democrats. Joe Biden is out of it. He said "coupon-clippers in the stock market" should pay the same tax rates as teachers and firefighters. The "coupon-clippers" are primarily those who buy municipal bonds that are tax-free. The interest is...

    A Democrat seeking the party's 2020 presidential nomination faced sharp criticism on social media Saturday after linking that day's massacre in El Paso, Texas, to President Trump's rhetoric. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., one of nearly two-dozen Democrats hoping to block Trump's bid for a second term in the White House, made her remarks at a labor forum event in Las Vegas. ďThe individuals who do the shootings are responsible," Klobuchar said, referring to mass shootings such as the one in El Paso that left 20 dead and 26 injured, "but I do think Trump's rhetoric has fueled more hate in...

    Now that the race for the 2020 Democratic nomination has officially started, one of the big issues that will likely come up is which candidate is the most electable. One way to find that out is to see how the different possible candidates have done in the past. Of course, it's difficult to compare candidates when they run for different offices in different years. There are, however, six potential 2020 Democratic contenders ran who ran for the US Senate in 2018. The big takeaway from those results: Sens. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Sherrod Brown of Ohio are above-average candidates...
