Flashback: Beto Said He Did Not Flee 1998 DWI, Officers At the Scene Say He’s Lying

Not cool.

It was reported during his failed Senate run last year that former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (TX) fled the scene of a DWI over two decades ago. Beto has denied this happened.

However, officers at the scene of the crime say Beto did, in fact, attempt to flee. So, who is telling the truth here? Is it the lying politician who is constantly caught lying? Or is it the cops.

Hmm. Tough call, huh? If Beto were honest just a little bit more often, maybe people would believe he’s telling the truth here. But he’s not. And he isn’t.

The former police officer who arrested Beto O’Rourke for driving drunk in 1998, along with the sergeant who signed the incident report, both say they believe now what they reported at the time: that O’Rourke tried to leave the scene of the wreck he caused.

O’Rourke admits he was intoxicated and says there is no justification for his actions, but he has denied that he tried to flee.

[…]

Neither the investigating officer, Richard Carrera, nor his former supervisor, Gary Hargrove, specifically recalls the events of that night more than 20 years ago. But both of the former Anthony Police Department officers told The Texas Tribune they have no doubt the report they compiled and signed is accurate.

A Beto spokesman noted, “Beto’s DWI is something he has long publicly and openly addressed over the last 20 years at town halls, on the debate stage, during interviews and in Op-Eds, calling it a serious mistake for which there is no excuse. This has been widely and repeatedly reported on.

LOOK (zoom in):

Beto O’Rourke, truth teller?

Not so much.

In that respect, he actually fits in quite swimmingly with the other 2,385 Democrat presidential candidates.

Check this out…

From Daily Wire:

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke made five false statements in an attack on President Donald Trump this week when he was confronted over why he compared the president to the Third Reich.

O’Rourke noted, “I compared the rhetoric that the president has employed to the rhetoric that you might have heard during the Third Reich. Calling human beings an ‘infestation’ is something we might have expected to hear in Nazi Germany.

He added, “Describing immigrants who have a track record of committing violent crimes at a lower rate than native-born Americans as ‘rapists and criminals.’ Seeking to ban all Muslims, all people of one religion, what other country on the face of the planet does that kind of thing or in our history or in the history of the western world?

Ryan Saavedra points out exactly where Beto was lying.

Listen to the clip below, then go back and read the bullet points within the tweet.

Democrat Beto O’Rourke lies a lot right here:

-Trump said “we have an ‘infestation’ of MS-13 gangs in certain parts of our country”
-The travel ban is not a Muslim ban
-Trump never said neo-Nazis and KKK members were “very fine people”
-The remaining comments need more context

Come on, “Beto.” Be better.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz is royally ticked off – and rightfully so.

Apparently, Reuters knew that O’Rourke was a bad apple during his Senate race in 2018 but said nothing.

Check out Ted’s tweet…

So Reuters had evidence in 2017 that Beto may have committed multiple felonies—which Beto confirmed on the record—but deliberately withheld the story for over a year to help him win his Senate race? But when he’s running against Bernie etc, NOW it’s news?

Save conservative media!

Katie Hill Criticizes Paul Gosar For Epstein Tweets; Gosar Fires Back And Says ‘You Taught The Country What A ‘Throuple’ Was’

Published

on

Rep. Paul Gosar, Arizona, struck back at his former colleague Katie Hill after she ripped him for tweeting about the “suicide” of Jeffrey Epstein, a current hot topic and popular meme circulating around the Internet. Gosar’s burn was aimed at Hill’s recent controversy involving lewd photographs of her with a staffer who she had an inappropriate relationship with, noting that she taught the country what a “throuple” was. Here’s more from Fox News: Hill reprehended Gosar over a series of tweets that spelled out “Epstein didn’t kill himself,” a line that has been appearing in memes and on social media. Hill blasted him for “tweeting out real conspiracy theories.” “No[,] like this actually happened. Real members of Congress tweeting out real conspiracy theories. In an acrostic no less,” Hill tweeted. Gosar fired back, “You’re surprised by me? You single-handedly taught an entire country a new word. #throuple,” Gosar reacted. “And wth is up with that tattoo? Relax.” “Throuple,” which is a term to describe a three-person relationship, was the arrangement Hill reportedly had with her estranged husband and a female campaign staffer. Hill accused her estranged husband of leaking the nude photos as “revenge porn” amid their messy divorce. Hill’s attorneys also vehemently denied allegations made in a DailyMail story that one of the nude photos shows a “Nazi-era Iron Cross” tattoo. Gosar got a whole lot of attention on his Twitter account Wednesday after he let loose with a series of tweets he made in connection with the ongoing testimony of U.S. diplomat Bill Taylor and State Department official George Kent as the first witnesses in the impeachment hearings against President Trump. The first letter of each of the tweets spells out “Epstein didn’t kill himself.” Rather clever, wouldn’t you agree?

First Day Of Public Impeachment Hearings Turns Up The Pressure On Moderate Democrats

Published

on

Much attention is now being cast toward moderate Democrats in the House, especially in swing districts, with the first day of public hearings in the impeachment inquiry into President Trump now under wraps. The day finished up without any major revelations coming to light, highlighting the weakness of the Democrats’ key witnesses in the case against the president. Many of these witnesses are relying on second-hand information, having not interacted even once with the president. Here’s more from Fox News: At one point in Wednesday’s hearing, Rep. Mike Quigley, D-Ill., even appeared to embrace hearsay testimony, claiming that “hearsay can be much better evidence than direct” and that “countless people have been convicted on hearsay because the courts have routinely allowed and created, needed exceptions to hearsay.” It was unclear which of those limited exceptions would apply to Wednesday’s testimony — and whether Quigley’s argument would persuade critical swing-vote Democrats. The House is now comprised of 431 members, meaning Democrats need 217 yeas to impeach Trump. There are currently 233 Democrats, so Democrats can only lose 16 of their own and still impeach the president. 31 House Democrats represent more moderate districts that Trump carried in 2016. Freshman Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Mich. — who flipped a GOP district in 2018 that Trump won by 7 points in 2016 — told Fox News that she was tentatively weighing all the evidence. “My constituents expect me to make an objective decision,” Slotkin said as the hearings concluded, “not one based on an hour of testimony.” https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1194710194166497281 There’s also a report floating around that is suggesting that if House Democrats impeach the president, Senate Republicans are going to hold a lengthy trial that will “scramble” the 2020 Democratic presidential primary by making it mandatory for several of the contenders to stay put in…
