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.

White House Announces Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal

This could be a big boon for a number of American industries as well.

Published

Regardless of what you think of Joe Biden touting this latest infrastructure deal as a “win”, it sure is nice to see that our government isn’t completely and utterly broken in the 21st century. It took months of bickering and infighting, and more than a few moments of political pettiness, but it appears as though we may just have an infrastructure deal after all. President Biden announced on Thursday that the White House and a group of bipartisan senators had reached a deal on a $579 billion infrastructure plan. “It’s been a very long time since the last time our country was able to strike a major bipartisan deal on American infrastructure,” Biden said at the White House. Biden said he and congressional Democrats had to concede some on what’s known as “human infrastructure,” such as investments for childcare and spending on climate change. Democrats will instead look to pass additional spending in a separate bill through a Senate budgetary process called reconciliation, which requires only a simple majority to pass legislation. And, despite no one having seen the bill yet, Biden is confident that Congress will send it to his desk to sign in the coming days. The radical left will likely be the most disappointed in the bill, after having previously suggested a goal of a $10 trillion investment in climate change initiatives.

Miami Building Collapsed After Years of Sinking into the Earth

Scientists has determined the issue years ago.

Just north of Miami, in the nearby town of Surfside, there is a massive rescue effort underway as nearly 100 people remain unaccounted for in the wake of a residential high-rise’s collapse. That number was nearly double the early estimate, having risen dramatically on Thursday afternoon as more information became available to those leading the effort. The late-night collapse, which was captured on video by a nearby surveillance camera, appeared to be a sudden, freak accident, but new information seems to indicate that there might be more to this story. A Florida high rise that collapsed early Thursday was determined to be unstable a year ago, according to a researcher at Florida International University. The building, which was constructed in 1981, has been sinking at an alarming rate since the 1990s, according to a 2020 study conducted by Shimon Wdowinski, a professor in the Department of Earth and Environment. When Wdowinski saw the news that the Champlain Towers South condominium in Surfside had collapsed, he instantly remembered it from the study, he said. “I looked at it this morning and said, ‘Oh my god.’ We did detect that,” he said. But not everyone agreed with the assessment. Wdowinski said his research is not meant to suggest certainty about what caused the collapse. The building was sinking at a rate of about 2 millimeters a year in the 1990s, and could have slowed or accelerated in the time since, he said. In his experience, even the level of sinking observed in the 1990s typically results in impacts to buildings and their structures, Wdowinski said. He believes that very well could have been the case for the Champlain building in the 1990s, based on his findings. “It was a byproduct of analyzing the data. We saw this building had some kind of unusual…
