Robert “Beto” O’Rourke (D-TX) is a rockstar to many people. Although he couldn’t defeat Ted Cruz in a Senate race, the former Congressman now thinks he can defeat President Trump.

Beto has officially decided to run for president in 2020.

O’Rourke is certain to gain much attention, but that might be about it.

At one point in his youth, Beto was actually in a couple of bands.

One was called was “Fragile Gang.” The other, “The Sheeps.”

You couldn’t make that up.

“Our persona was that we were a very famous band from New Zealand and we didn’t want people to know our true identities—that’s why we wore masks,” Ailbhe Cormack, the band’s bassist, tells Mother Jones. “I think people followed along with the mystery of it, but they knew who we were.”

During a concert, O’Rourke appeared on stage in a sheep mask and a onesie.

There’s proof.

WATCH:

The costumes apparently varied.

Here’s another video:

O’ Rourke thinks America needs to start over with new governing documents.

Throughout the two-hour interview — which was often interrupted by bystanders urging him to run for president — O’Rourke boomeranged between a bright-eyed hope that the United States will soon dramatically change its approach to a whole host of issues and a dismal suspicion that the country is now incapable of implementing sweeping change.

Beto: “I’m hesitant to answer it because I really feel like it deserves its due, and I don’t want to give you a — actually, just selfishly, I don’t want a sound bite of it reported, but, yeah, I think that’s the question of the moment: Does this still work. Can an empire like ours with military presence in over 170 countries around the globe, with trading relationships . . . and security agreements in every continent, can it still be managed by the same principles that were set down 230-plus years ago?

O’Rourke is vehemently opposed to building a wall on the southern border.

When asked how America can go about solving the crisis, Beto offered a poignant response: “I don’t know.”

Here’s Beto’s official announcement:

I am running to serve you as the next president. The challenges we face are the greatest in living memory. No one person can meet them on their own. Only this country can do that, and only if we build a movement that includes all of us. Say you’re in: http://BetoORourke.com

Speaker Nancy Pelosi was asked to name Beto’s signature accomplishemnt while he was a member of Congress.

What happens next is pure Nancy.

She had nothing; no answer.

Pelosi: “Beto brought vitality to Congress…when he came, he came as a real champion for the environment. He got a great deal of support from the environmental community in his district, he won a primary on that subject.

Pelosi: “And, also, he was a member of the Armed Services Committee, a strong member of the Armed Services Committee, which is very important for his district. In preserving our planet and protecting our people, they’re at least two areas in addition to his vitality in so many different ways.

So, Beto brought…”vitality?”

Fellow former Texas politican Julian Castro is running for president in 2020, undoubtedly with a goal of undoing everything good Donald Trump has done since taking office.

On Saturday, Julián Castro officially announced his intention to run for president in 2020. Castro served as President Obama’s Housing and Urban Development (HUD) secretary from 2014 – 2017. Prior to his work in the Obama administration, Castro was the mayor of San Antonio, Texas.

White House Announces Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal

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

Published

on

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…
