Beto Turns Conspiracy Theorist When Asked About Validity of 2016 Election

Get out your tinfoil hats!

When you look around the internet today, there is one group of online rabble rousers who are being stamped out at an alarming rate:  Conspiracy theorists.

While many of these self-proclaimed “researchers” and “journalists” are truly incorrigible, (such as nutcase Alex Jones), the underlying fact remains that taking away their right to speak their minds in the internet’s public square is wholly un-American.

Remember always:  Sunlight is the best disinfectant, and forcing these dangerous ideas back underground is a surefire way to be blindsided by them when they rise again in a new, never-before-seen form.

The evils of censorship aside, there is another alarming trend within this trend, however.  It seems as though only certain conspiracy theories are now considered taboo…namely those emanating from the right side of the aisle.

For instance, when Beto O’Rourke tells an audience that he’s not sure how legitimate the 2016 election was, that’s just fine.

While appearing on MSNBC’s AM Joy, O’Rourke dropped a bombshell opinion of his.

After referencing the Russian breach of the voting systems in two counties in Florida, host Joy Reid asked, “Do you have confidence that the 2016 election was not impacted in terms of, not just the use of propaganda on American voters, but literally that the electoral systems weren’t breached and that Donald Trump was elected fairly?”

O’Rourke answered, “I don’t have complete confidence. In part because of what you just shared about Florida, in part because we know from other secretaries of state in other states in the union that their systems were breached. We don’t know if vote tallies were changed, but that alone should be cause for concern.”

Of course, several lengthy and in-depth investigations into this very possibility have been conducted, including the 22-month long, $30 million probe helmed by Robert Mueller.

None of these investigatory efforts has shown evidence of a corrupted election.

Democratic Polling Reveals Top Two 2024 Candidates if Biden Opts Out

This is the best they’ve got?

Published

on

Oddly, and almost inexplicably, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki asserted that Joe Biden, one of the least-popular presidents in modern history, is already set on running for reelection in 2024.  This, despite that fact that Biden’s polling numbers are abjectly horrible and the Democratic Party’s most enthusiastic demographics are far from thrilled bout the idea voting for such an ineffective Commander in Chief again.

And let’s not forget that we’re only 10-or-so months into Biden’s first term; there is still plenty of time for things to get worse for the man who was reluctant to run in the first place.

Should Biden actually read the writing on the wall, however, there are two candidates that the Democrats do actually seem enthused about in 2024.

Vice President Kamala Harris is the top choice for Democrats if President Biden chooses not to run again in 2024, according to a new poll.

The vice president received support from 13% of respondents in The Hill/HarrisX poll despite her historically low approval ratings, according to The Hill.

Former first lady Michelle Obama came in second with backing of 10%.

Receiving support below 10% were a handful of former 2020 hopefuls, including Sens. Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker; billionaire former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg; businessman Andrew Yang; and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.

Michelle Obama was resolute in her decision not to run in 2020, and Kamala Harris’ first few months in office as the Vice President have been less than promising.

There is some buzz about Pete Buttigieg possibly running in 2024, (or 2028), but there’s no telling if the current Transportation Secretary has given any thought to the Oval Office as of yet.

Biden Approval Rating Takes Unprecedented Nosedive

But he still says he’s running again in 2024…

Published

on

Given just how unimpressive the Biden administration has been thus far, it is easy to imagine that the President’s approval rating wouldn’t be all that great, but perhaps no one could have quite predicted this.

Biden took office as a man who really didn’t appear to want to be the President.  The Democrats seemed to have railroaded him into the nomination back in 2020, believing that he was just the sort of milquetoast centrist that could wrangle some midwestern moderates away from Donald Trump.

And that part seemed to work.  The issue that arose was Biden and his team’s bitter unwillingness to address any of the issues facing our nation, and simply treading water in the White House.

This has led to a rather remarkable drop in the polls.

President Joe Biden’s approval rating is now underwater by double digits, over 10 months into his presidency, Friday’s RealClearPolitics’ average shows.

Just how bad is it?

RCP’s average of polls, which includes Rasmussen Reports, Economist/YouGov, NPR/PBS/Marist, Reuters/Ipsos, Fox News, Politico/Morning Consult, Quinnipiac, ABC News/Washington Post, Gallup, Monmouth, Federalist/Susquehanna, USA Today/Suffolk, Emerson, and CNN, currently shows Biden’s approval rating sitting at 41.6 percent. A majority, 53.1 percent disapprove of Biden’s job performance, giving him a net negative of 11.5 percent.

Every single poll listed showed Biden’s approval underwater, several by double digits. The USA Today/Suffolk survey, for instance, has Biden underwater by 21 percent, garnering an abysmal 38 percent approval rating. Similarly, Federalist/Susquehanna showed Biden -16, with 36 percent approving and 52 percent disapproving.

As Americans continue to feel the pressures of a holiday season handcuffed by inflation and other economic pressures, there is little doubt that the Biden administration’s lack of progress could continue to drive this downward spiral into further, historically bad territory.
