- Beto O’Rourke’s wife a Billionaire Heiress
- Ran as a Progressive in Texas but now isn’t big on labels
- Voted 167 times against his own party, hurting the Affordable Care Act
Here we are, twelve months before the presidential primary and we’re already hearing talk of potential candidacies. As of right now, the top three hopefuls that the media is talking about are Joe Biden, Beto O’Rourke, and Bernie Sanders– the last of which receiving the least amount of media coverage.
But can you blame the voters who just months after Trump was unconstitutionally elected were already talking about election 2020? It has been two years into this inept administration and we’ve had three government shutdowns. I don’t blame voters at all. We were duped from all sides and I was thinking about 2020 two years ago when Trump falsely won.
On top of it all, Trump’s trade war is hurting our economy in such a way that the stock market is going up sharply one day and down sharply the next. I don’t know about you, but I think a stable economy would post gradual gains and losses over a long period of time. Sharp ups and downs gives me this feeling of artificiality, as though something isn’t adding up.
So onward we go, as the sick and tired voters that we are, to look for the one that will put an end to Trump if Mueller does not. As all our eyes are on the big three, more information is coming out about them, mostly about Beto O’Rourke. Let’s take a look.
Since 2013, Beto O’Rourke has been U.S. Representative for the 16th congressional district in Texas. And losing his bid to turn Texas blue by beating Ted Cruz, in my honest opinion, was the unofficial kick-off of his 2020 presidential campaign. He almost beat Ted Cruz who, as most of my readers remember, was told by alt-president Trump that his wife was ugly and that his dad might have been the second gunman on the grassy knoll. Fast forward to the two of them hugging.
But Beto just couldn’t pull it out a winner against Ted “thank-you-sir-may-I-have-another” Cruz. The fact that he almost turned Texas blue, however, seemed to be enough to qualify him in the media and public eye to run for president. But now we’re starting to find out some very questionable things about the winner of the Robert F. Kennedy look-alike contest.
First of all, his wife, Amy, is a billionaire Heiress and how nobody found out about that until after his defeat in Texas I’ll never know. Her father, who is a real estate mogul in El’ Paso, sold his company to GE for a whopping $2B.
Second of all, according to Newsweek, O’Rourke voted 167 times against his own party for policies that furthered the Republican agenda. And some of those bills did outright damage to the affordable care act. That’s very disturbing, considering the fact that he ran as a Progressive in Texas. Presently, O’Rourke states that he “doesn’t know” if he’s a Progressive, adding that he doesn’t like labels. Are you kidding me?
Imagine Beto attempting to debate Trump, the sleazy master brander and disgustoramous, and having to answer for walking back his progressive values. He’d be crushed and our mistake will give us four more years of Trump.
This may sound crazy to you but I believe that Beto was chosen to keep Sanders at bay so Biden gets the nomination and there’s no hint of cheating whatsoever. I mean they’ve already learned from the mistakes of amateurish DWS and scheduled twelve debates instead of just the piddly little three broadcasted during major sports events or on weekends like last time.
Consider this: Bernie Sanders was able to change the Democratic party platform precisely because he almost defeated Hillary Clinton and then Clinton went on to lose, vindicating some on the left who didn’t think she could win. The downside was we got four years of Trump because someone didn’t want to campaign in Wisconsin or Michigan and because of a Russian asshole trying to kill America from within.
You see, I’m different. I believe it is possible to be a bad candidate and also be cheated by Russian interference. I may lose readers over that last sentence but this is just opinion and I hope that you take the time to read my other works before you judge me on this one piece.
When Hillary Clinton raised her arms and yelled “Medicare for all will never come to pass,” that wasn’t her speaking, that was the dark monied wing of the democratic party speaking. Too many people are taking money from big pharma and have too much power, being able to control who can even run in an election, let alone win.
If Sanders comes in third during the primary, he will not be in a position to change the democratic platform and progressives will be shoved downward for a decade or two until their message and pool of candidates can recharge.
The trend I see is that Beto is strictly in the race to knock out Sanders so that Biden gets the nomination and Beto, I believe, will be repaid with his own nomination in four to eight years after having notched on his belt a presidential run.
Keep in mind, this is not a conspiracy theory (I hate those), it’s just a bet I’m placing with my readers.
