BIZARRO BETO: Live Streams Dental Procedure as 2020 Looms

With the democratic one-upmanship game a very real thing, one can only shudder to think of what will be coming down the pipe.

Beto O'Rourke

It would be absolutely impossible to go back in time and convince someone living in 2016 what the biggest headlines of 2019 would be.  They simply wouldn’t believe you.

Obviously, at the beginning of 2016, even the most loyal republicans believed that Donald Trump had a 0% chance of taking the Oval Office from the well-oiled political machine known as The Clintons.

There would also be no way, no way, that you could get away with saying that Liz Warren would have failed a DNA test to prove her Cherokee heritage and still be the first to declare her intent to run for the President in 2020.

And finally, if I told you that a failed Senate candidate from Texas, who skateboarded around campaign events and speaks in alternating impressions of Barack Obama and JFK, was going to livestream his routine dental cleaning online, you would have had me checked in to the psych ward.

“So I’m here at the dentist and we’re going to continue our series on the people of the border,” O’Rourke says in a video posted on Instagram as he receives a dental cleaning.

O’Rourke, who represented a district in El Paso, then flips the camera in the direction of his hygienist, Diana, who recounts her time growing up near the U.S.-Mexico border.

Diana, wearing goggles and a mask over her face, said she was born in El Paso and that her father was a U.S. citizen. She added that her mother was born in a small town in Mexico and that she herself was a permanent resident in the U.S. while studying for her American citizenship.

She said people in the area were extremely helpful during her time studying for her citizenship, and that “the entire neighborhood was there when she passed her citizenship test.”

“It was wonderful,” she said, before saying that she wants other Americans to realize that the region near the border is  “a beautiful community.”

“Bias Response Teams” are Nullifying The First Amendment at Portland State

When free speech dies, so too does America herself.

first amendment

A terrifying new authority has arrived on the campus of Portland State, and their purpose is to police the language used anywhere on the property. The idea is simple enough:  If you or one of your colleagues finds yourself either offended, or concerned that someone else could be offended, by something that just occurred on campus, you can call the “Bias Response Team” to come “investigate”…or whatever it is that they do. Yes, this is a real thing, and not some dystopian, concept-opinion piece I’m trying out. Members of the campus community at Portland State better think twice about making a joke on campus — it could very well lead to their names being reported to the university’s bias response team. Two bias reports filed at the public institution last fall were against people making jokes or similar off-hand comments on campus, according to documents obtained by The College Fix through a public records act request. Just how bad were the jokes? In one case from last September, a student overheard someone in their classroom making a comment about sometimes feeling like they having schizophrenia. “She then stated she was not trying to make fun of schizophrenia,” the student reported, “but that sometimes she can be ‘schizophrenic.’ … She stated this in a joking manner and even laughed about it.” Now let’s look to the future, when you are perhaps looking for a job, or perhaps a career in politics, and your “bias response team” report finds its way to Wikileaks.  Now, instead of focusing on who stands before you today, you are either tainted by or forced to spend time explaining the situation that led to your being included in such a wildly subjective, yet somehow serious report. Worse still is that comedy is one of the last real safe harbors for free speech…

Americans are Turning Away from Mainstream Media’s Monsters

This media malady has maintained course for too long, and the American people are growing tired of it.

mainstream media

The division that we see in our current society is unacceptable, but the loud, crashing, rapid fire mortars of the mainstream media have us so disorientated that we cannot see it. At any time of the day, you could turn on the television and watch two grown adults shout at each other over politics.  There are channel after channel devoted to this very idea; that we can induce catharsis living vicariously through the talking heads on the television. At times, it is even barbaric.  There are nuclear moments that go viral, adding fuel to this fire of fervor and frenzy.  Then, these snippets get snatched out of context and weaponized on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. It has put us all at each other’s throats, and that is not what this great nation is all about. This media malady has maintained course for too long, and the American people are growing tired of it. A new poll shows trouble for the figurative tip of the mainstream media spear, CNN. Last place CNN’s already humiliating ratings nosedived by double digits last week. Even more than usual, some ten days ago the far-left CNN launched a 24/7 jihad against President Trump, going so far as to question his mental health, his patriotism, blaming him for a mass murder in New Zealand, and serial lying about his response to Charlottesville. But this unhinged hate campaign obviously turned off a considerable number of Americans. When compared to this same week last year, CNN lost -16 percent of its primetime viewers and -17 of total day viewers; young people ran away screaming: In the advertiser-coveted 25-54 age demo, CNN shed an incredible -31 percent of those viewers during primetime and -29 percent in total day. Even more telling still are the metrics available to us that compare CNN to their rival…
