Beto Goes Bonkers! Says Existing Border Barriers Should Be DESTROYED!

If you thought that AOC and Omar were on the fringes of the left, wait until you get a load of this!

Beto O'Rourke

It goes without saying that Beto O’Rourke has built his entire national presence on being the antithesis to Donald Trump and the Trumpian republicans.

That’s not unexpected.  Given the hysteria of the democratic party today, his far left stance on many a subject seem downright benign.  After all, he hasn’t proclaimed his love for socialism or his hatred for the Jewish people at this stage in the game.

But the 2020 hopeful still has some radical plans up his sleeve, including a wanton desire to not only oppose more border security, but to remove the existing border protections that this nation already employs.

Former Texas Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke said Thursday that he would “absolutely” support tearing down existing barriers along the southern border with Mexico, in a full-throated embrace of open-borders rhetoric that has left conservatives wondering where other potential 2020 Democratic White House hopefuls stand on the issue.

O’Rourke’s comments came as the House and Senate passed a compromise spending billthat would partially fund President Trump’s proposed border wall, to the tune of $1.4 billion. Trump, who had been pressing for billions more, has vowed to declare a national state of emergency to fund the remainder of the project.

Amid the congressional debate, Texas GOP Rep. Dan Crenshaw wrote on Twitter earlier Thursday that he wanted O’Rourke to answer a simple question: “If you could snap your fingers and make El Paso’s border wall disappear, would you?” He cited Department of Homeland Security (DHS) figures suggesting that illegal border crossings dropped sharply in El Paso following the construction of a wall there.

Robert Francis O’Rourke was asked a paraphrased version of that question again, and his answer was astoundingly worrisome.

MSNBC host Chris Hayes posed a version of that question to O’Rourke on-air: “Would you, if you could, would you take the wall down here — knock it down?”

“Yes, absolutely,” answered O’Rourke, who is widely thought to be a potential candidate in 2020 but has not formally announced his intention to run. “I’d take the wall down.”

Asked whether El Paso residents would support that move in a referendum,  O’Rourke replied, “I do.”

O’Rourke is believed to be waiting in the wings to announce his candidacy for the 2020 presidential campaign at any moment, and would push the already bloated field of contenders to an obscene size in these early stages of campaigning.

Trump Administration Set to Cut Food Stamp Benefits for Nearly One Million People (Details)

Is this a big risk for Trump?

It’s probably a good bet to say that most people on food stamps didn’t vote for Donald Trump in 2016 and won’t vote for him in 2020. Some people have yet to figure out that Democrat politicians are insistent on keeping people in their current economic positions for the entirety of their lives, handing out free stuff in order to remain in office. Therefore, the administration isn’t exactly taking a big risk by gutting the program. Here’s the plan, via The Hill: The Trump administration is set to announce a plan that would cut food stamp benefits for approximately 750,000 people, Bloomberg News reported on Tuesday. The plan, which is scheduled to be announced Wednesday, will make it more difficult for states to gain waivers from a requirement that beneficiaries of food stamps work or are enrolled in a vocational training program, according to Bloomberg, which cited sources familiar with the matter. Continued: The work or vocational training requirement applies to recipients who are “able-bodied” or those who are not caring for a child under six years old. Under the current guidelines, states can receive a waver for work requirements for those receiving benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or its former name, food stamps, if its unemployment rate is at least 20 percent above the national rate, according to Bloomberg. To label Barack Obama “a conservative” is absolutely wild. Lefties are turning on Barry now because he’s had a few choice words for the likes of AOC, Bernie Sanders, and others, though, indirectly. It just goes to show that there is no low the left won’t stoop to tear down Republicans, conservatism, capitalism, and everything else that makes America great. Perspective: Democratic presidential candidates still can’t figure out how to talk about the most popular figure in…

Biden Goes On Record, Says He Will Not Appear As Witness In Senate Impeachment Trail

Will the GOP subpoena?

John Salvatore

The whole Ukraine/impeachment nonsense started because a whistleblower allegedly overheard President Trump demand that the nation’s leader investigate Joe and Hunter Biden and Burisma. As we’re all well aware, there is no evidence to support that notion. Joe Biden used his status as vice president, at the time, to ensure his ne’er-do-well son secured a solid gig. In fact, Joe even interfered on a number of occasions. Even though his whole fiasco circles the Biden’s in a way that is undeniable, the 2020 Democrat presidential nominee is saying he will not appear as a witness in the Senate. Is he scared? WATCH: [email protected] tells @pdoocy he will not appear voluntarily if called as a witness in Senate impeachment trial, “No I’m not going to let them take their eye off the ball. The President is the one who has committed impeachable crimes and I’m not going to let him divert from that.” https://twitter.com/WardDPatrick/status/1202376427083051008?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1202376427083051008&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F04%2Fjoe-biden-says-he-wont-appear-voluntarily-if-called-as-a-witness-in-senate-impeachment-trial%2F Reactions: I hear Hunter has indicated he will gladly testify as an expert witness for $50,000 a month. https://twitter.com/PostTweeter/status/1202380595185278984?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1202380595185278984&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F04%2Fjoe-biden-says-he-wont-appear-voluntarily-if-called-as-a-witness-in-senate-impeachment-trial%2F so Biden thinks Trump should agree with everything the Dems want or it’s obstruction of justice, but it’s not if he doesn’t want to. https://twitter.com/nanabooboo19/status/1202384158233747457?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1202384158233747457&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F04%2Fjoe-biden-says-he-wont-appear-voluntarily-if-called-as-a-witness-in-senate-impeachment-trial%2F What is Joe Biden scared of?

If the Senate calls him, he must appear and take the 5th if he wants but he has no present executive privilege to even challenge a subpoena. https://twitter.com/JustChattingUp/status/1202380701431144448?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1202380701431144448&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F04%2Fjoe-biden-says-he-wont-appear-voluntarily-if-called-as-a-witness-in-senate-impeachment-trial%2F Biden is using the Impeachment process for personal political gain. https://twitter.com/RilsRislan/status/1202376917178937344?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1202376917178937344&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F04%2Fjoe-biden-says-he-wont-appear-voluntarily-if-called-as-a-witness-in-senate-impeachment-trial%2F “Mr Biden do you welcome hearsay evidence for grounds to impeach you during a possible Biden presidency?” How hard is it to ask Biden or any Democrat candidate that question? https://twitter.com/dir_allen/status/1202379050913808385?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1202379050913808385&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F04%2Fjoe-biden-says-he-wont-appear-voluntarily-if-called-as-a-witness-in-senate-impeachment-trial%2F Biden…
