Desperate Beto Tries to Channel Trump in Debate With Cruz. He Fails Spectacularly.

Published

on

Congressman Beto O’Rourke, challenger in a race for Ted Cruz’s senate seat, decided to try and channel the spirit of President Trump during his debate with Cruz as a means of hopefully connecting to voters and closing the gap between himself and the current sitting senator.

O’Rourke called Cruz “Lyin’ Ted” during the debate, the nickname Trump gave him during the 2016 presidential election, which came off reeking of desperation.

O’Rourke, who has his own problems telling the truth, stated, “Senator Cruz is not going to be honest with you. He’s going to make up positions and votes that I’ve never held or that I’ve never taken. It’s why the president called him ‘Lyin’ Ted’ and it’s why the nickname stuck. Because it’s true.”

Even the left-leaning Washington Post admitted O’Rourke was looking for a way out of the corner Cruz has painted him in. The Post wrote, “Seeking to discredit criticism of his record, O’Rourke repurposed the barb against Trump’s former GOP presidential primary rival.”

Some examples of O’Rourke’s flights of fancy: the Post itself gave O’Rourke “Four Pinocchios” for his claim that he did not try to leave the scene of an accident in 1998 when he was driving drunk.

O’Rourke tried to engender empathy from an audience in Lubbock, Texas, claiming, “”I grew up in El Paso where no U.S. Senator ever opened an office. We were the sixth largest city in the state. We went effectively unrepresented, unheard, unserved, in that community and I think a lot of people in Lubbock know the feeling.” But Sen. Phil Gramm had an office in El Paso for many years, according to state Representative Matthew Schaefer of Tyler.

At the end of the day, this sort of tactic is not at all going to win over the kind of voters O’Rourke is hoping for, which would be Trump supporters. These folks would rather have Cruz, who they know has a tried and true record of upholding the Constitution than to trust someone like Beto, who himself has a spotty reputation for truth telling.

Cruz still has a rather significant lead over O’Rourke, but we’ll have to wait and see if that continues to carry on through the election in November.

United States Affirms ‘Freedom And Independence’ Of Taiwan Despite China’s Claims Of Sovereignty

Published

A senior official with the State Department recently voiced support for the “freedom and independence” of Taiwan in a very straight-forward sign of disregard for the claim of sovereignty by Beijing over the island. “It seems to me preserving Taiwan’s freedom and independence is a priority,” Peter Berkowitz, the director of policy planning for the State Department said on Wednesday. via Washington Examiner: That statement comes at a time of widespread concern that Chinese Communist forces will attack Taiwan, fears linked in part to uncertainty about whether the United States would intervene. Berkowitz stopped short of an explicit defense pledge, but his comments likely will anger a Chinese Communist regime that routinely pressures countries not to recognize Taiwan as a legitimate government. “The State Department has been and the Defense Department has been thinking long and hard about how to assist our free and democratic friends in the region, Taiwan, but of course the larger Indo-Pacific region as well,” Berkowitz told the Foundations for Defense of Democracy. Berkowitz’s remarks came one day after Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen celebrated the beginning of an effort to build submarines to help repel a potential invasion from mainland China. “The construction demonstrates Taiwan’s strong will to the world to protect its sovereignty,” President Tsai stated on Tuesday. “Submarines are important equipment for the development of Taiwan’s navy’s asymmetric warfare capabilities and to deter enemy ships from encircling Taiwan.” Joel Gehrke, reporter for the Washington Examiner said in his report, ” Tsai was joined at the ceremony by American Institute in Taiwan Director Brent Christensen, who functions as the unofficial U.S. ambassador to the island government. The U.S. government established official diplomatic relations with the mainland Chinese Communist regime in 1979 but has maintained friendly unofficial relations with the Taiwanese authorities and provided defensive weaponry…

Donald Trump made all the moves necessary in his first term to earn another four years in the White House. Before the pandemic, the economy was soaring, unemployment hit record lows, and peace deals were made all over the globe. But the mainstream media didn’t care. It didn’t matter to them that he accomplished more in four years than most presidents could’ve dreamed in two terms. They are as disrespectful as they are ruthless. On Thanksgiving Day, POTUS had to tell off one of the far-left hacks. He said, “The whole election was a fraud. They have Biden beating Obama in areas that matter in terms of the election in swing states. And yet he’s losing to Obama all over the place. And yet he’s beating Obama inplaces that mattered in terms of the election. Look, between you people… Look, don’t talk to me that way, you’re just a lightweight. Don’t talk to me that way. I’m the President of the United States. Don’t ever talk to the President that way. OK I’m going to go with another question… Massive fraud has been found. We’re like a third world country. We’re using computers that can be hacked. How many glitches did they find. Oh, a glitch. Oh, gee we had a glitch. 5,000 votes. In all cases the votes switched to Joe Biden.” VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=19&v=I34X2PQKAA8&feature=emb_title Under Biden, America would never come first.
