It’s Beto O’Rourke.

From Daily Caller:

This is not the first time James has shown his support for O’Rourke. In August, the Lakers superstar tweeted praise for the Texas representative after a video went viral of O’Rourke speaking about his thoughts on NFL players kneeling during the anthem. He called the video “a must watch” and called his response “candid” and “thoughtful.”

O’Rourke has been saying lately that his mother is a “lifelong Republican” in an effort to get conservatives to lean his way.

Unfortunately for Beto, he was just caught in a major lie.

More on the lie:

Tucked in a lengthy BuzzFeed News profile of O’Rourke in August, however, he himself acknowledged that his mother’s politics were not as clear-cut as he lets on in his stump speech.

“I introduce my mom sometimes, and I kid her a little bit, like ‘my mom’s a lifelong Republican, but we got her to vote for us in this race.’ One day, she came up to me, and she said, ‘You know, that’s just not right: I would describe myself as an independent now, not a Republican. Definitely not a Democrat.’ I don’t know what the size of that universe is, but anecdotally we’re meeting a lot of people who have described themselves that way,” Beto O’Rourke said.

Beto claims he did not flee the scene of a drunken driving crash.

He did, in fact, leave the scene.

Even more interesting, though, is Beto’s years-long alliance with a man who compares America to Nazi Germany and law enforcement to terrorists.

From Daily Wire:

Senatorial nominee Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke has for years been a recurring guest on the “Drug Truth Network,” a fringe pro-drug legalization media outlet whose founder has compared America to Nazi Germany and law enforcement and military members to terrorists.

Beto for president?

From Texas Monthly:

Beto O’Rourke is a 45-year-old three-term congressman representing the sixth-largest city in Texas. He serves on the less-than-almighty Armed Services and Veterans Affairs committees. In parliamentary parlance, he’s a back-bencher. He is currently running a long-shot Senate campaign in a state that hasn’t elected a Democrat to statewide office since 1994, and, to this day, he hasn’t led a poll in the race. But over the past couple weeks, certain quarters of the internet have floated the idea that O’Rourke might very well run for President of the United States as soon as 2020.

Rest in peace, amigo.

When it comes to gritty guitars and even grittier songs, there is no act quite like that little ol’ band from Texas. ZZ Top mainlined American blues standards directly into the electric era of 1970’s rock, and then reinvented the genre once again with the synthesizers of the 1980’s.  From there, the band toured the world incessantly, bringing their grimy grooves and unforgettable stage presence to audiences from Dusseldorf to Delaware. Now, just weeks before the band was set to take to the road once again, one member of the holy triumvirate of honky-tonk has passed away. Dusty Hill, the bassist for ZZ Top, has died. He was 72. Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard of the Texas-based trio issued a statement to Variety on Tuesday, writing: “We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX. We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top’. We will forever be connected to that ‘Blues Shuffle in C.’” And then, echoing the sentiments of music fans the nation over: “You will be missed greatly, amigo,” the statement added. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, so we’ll just leave you all with a classic. Make sure to turns those speakers up, y’all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5WB5ouP-8c

Mask Mandates Coming Back to Capitol Hill After CDC Switcheroo

This isn’t likely to go over well with some lawmakers.

Published

on

With the “delta” variant now raging in some parts of the country, and breakthrough infections of vaccinated individuals continuing to be reported, the CDC has made a stark decision, stating that even vaccinated folks should be wearing a mask when they are indoors or in parts of the country with high COVID transmission rates. This has now prompted the House of Representatives to bring back a previously criticized policy themselves. Capitol Attending Physician Brian Monahan said late Tuesday that the House of Representatives is reinstating its mask mandate – and therefore the threat of fines to members who don’t comply – following updated guidance from the Centers from Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the delta variant of the coronavirus. The White House also appears to be going back to mandated masks. A White House press representative was seen Tuesday swapping a sign saying people are required to wear masks if unvaccinated with another saying masks are required regardless of vaccination status. Monahan didn’t leave much room for interpretation. “For the Congress, representing a collection of individuals traveling weekly from various risk areas (both high and low rates of disease transmission), all individuals should wear a well-fitted, medical-grade filtration mask (for example an ear loop surgical mask or a KN95 mask) when they are in an interior space,” Monahan said in a letter sent to congressional staffers. The move will almost certainly see pushback from the far right side of the aisle, where the mandating of masks has been a very unpopular policy, and a point of contention in almost every arena in which it has been implemented.
