Poll Shows How America REALLY Feels About Migrant Caravan

We must always remember that politicians are capable of lying, and these numbers are not.

The surprise silence of the democrats in regard to the migrant caravan currently on course through Mexico is deafening, and for good reason.

Given that the midterm elections are a scant 12 days away, (and early voting is underway already), the democrats are hoping that the optics of whatever calamity occurs at the border will help them to gain votes in this all-important election.  Combined with the news today that a number of left-leaning interests were targeted by crude explosive devices, the democrats will likely remain as quiet as they can be in the coming days, hoping to not exude their own exuberance at these unfortunate political gifts.

The issue here is, of course, how far from reality the democrats are dwelling on the issue of immigration, at least according to the latest polls.

Trending: Biden Drops Whopper During Stump Speech, Spills Secret

Voters agree with President Trump’s efforts to stop the horde of Hondurans marching through Mexico from entering the United States illegally.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the U.S. government should stop all the Hondurans headed this way from entering the country. Thirty-eight percent (38%) disagree and say the government should allow them to enter temporarily until each of their cases can be individually reviewed. Eleven percent (11%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

This is nearly identical to findings in April when another caravan of Central Americans was moving through Mexico toward the United States.

We must always remember that politicians are capable of lying, and these numbers are not.

The coming days will be strange ones for America.  I suggest buckling up.

O’Rourke Accused of Wrongly Appropriating “Beto” by Latino Journalist

Looks like “Beto” may have to go back to “Robert Francis” for the time being…

Beto O'Rourke

The mainstream media has been tiptoeing around Robert Francis O’Rourke’s name for some time now, but it seems that the jig is up.

“Beto” is what O’Rourke refers to himself as, and there is an extremely specific reason why.  As a politician living in El Paso, Texas, the Latino demographic is of the utmost importance for the democratic presidential candidate.

“Beto” is a Mexican nickname, short for “Roberto” and O’Rourke has certainly used this to his advantage in politics.

Now, a prominent Latino journalist is bashing “Beto” for the appropriation of the nickname, comparing the move to “stolen valor”.

In fact, in a USA Today column, Ruben Navarrette said that the “Beto backlash” among Latinos reminds him
“of the idea of stolen valor, the righteous outrage felt by combat veterans when others who didn’t see action claim medals they don’t deserve.”

Navarrette said that numerous Latinos “— unlike the media, which is run by white liberals who are fascinated by other white liberals — refuse to go loco for Beto” because O’Rourke has not been with the community when it mattered on issues like immigration.

Navarrette continued…

“For instance, at a time when Latinos feel under siege by ethnocentrism and anti-immigrant demagoguery, where was O’Rourke on the explosive immigration issue during his three terms in the House of Representatives?” Navarrette asked.

And this wasn’t the first time that the journalist went after Robert Francis O’Rourke, either.

In a previous column last month addressing “cultural appropriation,” Navarrette noted that though O’Rourke, whom he dubbed “the Hamlet of West Texas,” has likely “never gone out and told a group of Mexican-Americans that he was a member of the tribe,” it seems like “he doesn’t mind if some Latinos jump to that conclusion and vote for him because of some misplaced sense of ethnic loyalty.”

He even noted that some Latinos actually think O’Rourke is one of them, quipping that “perhaps they can’t imagine that anyone would—in Donald Trump’s America—volunteer to be Latino if they weren’t born that way.”

O’Rourke is one of 16, (or maybe 17), democratic candidates running for the presidency in 2020.

Despite His Offensive Gibberish, Beto Made Bank in 1st Fundraising Haul

O’Rourke’s campaign just stunned the democratic party, who themselves were still cringing from Beto’s “born to” run for President remarks to Vanity Fair.

Beto O'Rourke

The democrats have a serious problem on their hands for 2020, and the antics of Robert Francis O’Rourke isn’t helping.

With still plenty of time for the field to expand, the left is already sending forth sixteen candidates for President in 2020.  This does not include Joe Biden, who is almost certainly running, even having to correct himself for saying so in a stump speech.

This dilution of ideals will almost certainly be disastrous for the democrats, who’ve already eroded the American people’s trust in them after the deplorable behavior of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 contest.

Worse still for the left is the fact that their de facto “frontrunner” was just out-fundraised by a newcomer with a penchant for mysticism and “destiny”.

Beto O’Rourke raised $6.1 million in his first 24 hours as a presidential candidate, according to his campaign, surpassing Bernie Sanders and every other 2020 Democrat who has disclosed their figures.

O’Rourke’s campaign announced Monday that he had taken in $6,136,763 in online contributions in the day after declaring his candidacy Thursday morning.

“Beto” was quick to chime in on the accomplishment.

“In just 24 hours, Americans across this country came together to prove that it is possible to run a true grassroots campaign for president — a campaign by all of us, for all of us, that answers not to the PACs, corporations, and special interests but to the people,” O’Rourke, who has sworn off PAC donations of any kind, said in a statement.

O’Rourke’s first foray into the mainstream of presidential politics was through an article in Vanity Fair last week in which the candidate candidly spoke about the “destiny” that he felt in running for President; something that he seemed to say he was “born to do”.
