Beto: 'If Immigration Is a Problem, It's the Best Possible Problem for This Country to Have'

( - Newly minted presidential contender Robert Francis "Beto" O'Rourke wants to open lawful paths of immigration to potentially millions more people.
"And all of us, wherever you live, can acknowledge that if immigration is a problem, it's the best possible problem for this country to have. And we should ensure that there are lawful paths to work, to be with family and to flee persecution," O'Rourke, from the border city of El Paso, said in his video announcement.
With continuous and energetic hand-gesturing, and his wife Amy looking on, O'Rourke echoed the "Yes we can" campaigns of Barack Obama:
"This is a defining moment of truth for this country and for every single one of us. The challenges that we face right now, the interconnected crises in our economy, our democracy and our climate have never been greater, and they will either consume us or they will afford us the greatest opportunity to unleash the genius of the United States of America.

"In other words, this moment of peril produces perhaps the greatest moment of promise for this country and for everyone inside of it."
And here starts the "we can" theme:
We can begin by fixing our democracy and ensuring that our government works for everyone and not just corporations.
We can invest in the dignity of those who work and those who seek to work.
We can ensure that every single American can see a doctor and be well enough to live to their full potential.
And all of us, wherever you live, can acknowledge that if immigration is a problem, it's the best possible problem for this country to have. And we should ensure that there are lawful paths to work, to be with family and to flee persecution.
We can listen to and lift up rural America.
We can work on real justice reform and confront the hard truths of slavery and segregation and suppression in these United States of America.
We can reassert our global leadership and end these decades-long wars, and be there for every woman and man who has served in them.
And perhaps most importantly of all, because our very existence depends on it, we can unleash the ingenuity and creativity of millions of Americans who want to be ensure that we squarely confront the challenge of climate change before it's too late.
He promised to run a "positive" campaign that seeks to unite a divided country.
The video announcement came out just before the morning cable shows began at 6 a.m.; and it coincides with a gushing profile in Vanity Fair, complete with photographs by celebrity photographer Annie Liebovitz.
O'Rourke, a former U.S. congressman, lost his 2018 campaign for the U.S. Senate to incumbent Republican Ted Cruz.

“Restructuring El Paso: O’Rourke supported a plan in 2006 to redevelop downtown El Paso by taking down tenements and gentrifying the area. His father, billionaire William Sanders, was involved in the project. The plan angered barrio residents and small business owners, who feared they would lose their homes through the eminent domain process.”

 ‘Beto’ O’Rourke Not Sure if He’s ‘Bi-Cultural’

Democrat Beto O’Rourke announces run for president

Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke said this weekend that he is not sure if he is “bi-cultural.”

“I live in a bi-cultural community. My folks and their parents and generation that preceded them were from all over Europe so I don’t know if I would consider myself bi-cultural if you’re asking US and Mexico, but I’m very proud to live in a bicultural community,” O’Rourke reportedly told reporters days after formally entering the 2020 presidential race. “And for my kids to be going to a dual language public school where they are learning math in English and Spanish.”

Over the last 3 days, Beto O’Rourke has talked a lot about how living in the bicultural community of El Paso has shaped his views. @leylasantiago asked O’Rourke if he thinks he’s bicultural—he said he doesn’t know, but he’s “very proud to live in a bicultural bilingual community”

White liberal media reporters have gushed over how O’Rourke can speak Spanish on the stump, signaling to white audiences that he is bilingual, and have written countless profiles about how O’Rourke comes from a “bi-cultural” community in El Paso, Texas.
But as he has done with numerous questions since he launched his candidacy—Medicare for all, impeachment, reparations—O’Rourke gave a non-answer clouded in soaring rhetoric, which already seems to be one of his trademarks on the stump.
Earlier in the year, O’Rourke called for the border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border in El Paso to be torn down. He then later partly walked back those remarks.
“I think there are in some places a need for a physical barrier, and here’s what I would do: I would work with local stakeholders, the property owners, the communities, those who actually live there, to determine the best security solution,” O’Rourke reportedly later said after receiving the “El Pasoan of the Year” award, according to CNN. “We saw in El Paso a solution in search of a problem imposed on us by people who did not live here.”
On Meet the Press on Sunday, O’Rourke claimed that he could best talk about immigration issues in the 2020 election cycle–even though other candidates like former San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) are also from border states–because he is “the only candidate from the United States/Mexico border at a time that that dominates so much of our national conversation and legislative efforts and the things that the president talks about.”
“There’s one candidate who’s there who can talk about the profoundly positive impact that immigrants have had on our safety and our security, as well as our success and our strength,” O’Rourke claimed.

The 2020 Democrats: Beto O’Rourke

Who: Beto O’Rourke
State: Texas
Current position: Former U.S. House Representative of Texas
Campaign Website:
Background: O’Rourke earned a B.A. in English from Columbia University in New York. While studying, he worked as an intern on Capitol Hill for the office of former Rep. Ron Coleman (D-TX). After working a few jobs, as an internet service provider and at a publishing company, he returned to El Paso where he was born. There he sat on the city council from 2005 to 2011. He served as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from 2013 to 2019. O’Rourke ran an unsuccessful campaign against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in 2018, despite running the most expensive Senate campaign in U.S. history.
The Issues:
  • Healthcare: O’Rourke considers healthcare, “a basic human right, not a privilege,” and opposed the idea of repealing Obamacare. He supported expanding Medicaid coverage to prevent childbirth-related deaths, as well as covering, “vulnerable children, the disabled, and the elderly.” He wanted politicians to focus on, “achieving universal healthcare coverage- whether it be through a single payer system, a dual system, or otherwise - so that we can ensure everyone is able to see a provider when it will do the most good and will deliver healthcare in the most affordable, effective way possible.”
  • Immigration: "Absolutely, I'd take the wall down," O’Rourke told MSNBC's Chris Hayes in February. The former representative supported the DREAM Act and “modernizing” the visa system to allow U.S. businesses to seek employees for jobs, “that American workers can’t fill.”
  • Environment: O’Rourke said in 2012 that he would work with members of the House to come up with plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to a level that can be absorbed by the ecosystem. “I believe that in tackling climate change and the greatest environmental threat we have ever faced,” he said. “We need to take unprecedented action in building a foundation for a clean energy economy. Harmful emissions that contribute to climate change also pollute our air and water. Climate change threatens our food supply, our security and the complex ecosystem that sustains humanity.” O’Rourke is also a supporter of the Green New Deal, calling it the best proposal he's seen to combat climate change.
  • Economy: O’Rourke supported federal stimulus spending. He co-sponsored the Minimum Wage Fairness Act, which requires a $10.10 per hour federal minimum wage by 2016. The former congressman said he wanted, “policies that encourage companies to focus on returning investments back to their consumer, their employees, and to the community.”
  • Criminal Justice: On Monday, O’Rourke told supporters that he will push for completely legalized marijuana across the nation and call for expunging records of people imprisoned for possession. “Giving low-level offenders a second chance no matter the color of their skin or the economic status they hold can create opportunity for all of us,” he wrote in an email to supporters. O’Rourke also called for non-violent offenders to receive alternative sentences to prison and to get access to rehabilitation programs.
  • Gun Control: O’Rourke advocated for universal background checks to regulateonline and gun-show sales. He also wants to ban the sale of, “weapons of war and high-capacity magazines.”
  • Abortion: O’Rourke is pro-abortion. He co-sponsored the Women’s Health Protection Act in 2013 as well as bills S.217 and H.R.448 in 2015, which prohibit the passage of certain abortion restrictions. He said that he want to ensure, “that a woman’s right to choose is not compromised by limited access to safe and legal abortion services or family planning help.”
  • Restructuring El Paso: O’Rourke supported a plan in 2006 to redevelop downtown El Paso by taking down tenements and gentrifying the area. His father, billionaire William Sanders, was involved in the project. The plan angered barrio residents and small business owners, who feared they would lose their homes through the eminent domain process.
  • Denies Fleeing the Scene: In his 2018 debate with Sen.Cruz, Beto claimed that he didn't attempt to flee the scene of a crime back in August 1998. Beto was arrested on DWI charges east of the New Mexico border. The Anthony Police Department confirmed the authenticity of a 12-page police report attached to a Houston Chronicle article, which states that an, "unidentified motorist ‘then turned on his overhead lights to warn oncoming traffic and to try to get the defendant (O’Rourke) to stop.'"
  • Only Passed One Bill in Congress: During his time as a House representative, O’Rourke helped pass only one bill. In 2016, H.R.5873 went into law, which designated, "the Federal building and United States courthouse located at 511 East San Antonio Avenue in El Paso, Texas, as the 'R.E. Thomason Federal Building and United States Courthouse.'"
  • Flip/Flop on Cop Support: Civil rights groups were angered by O’Rourke’s votefor the Thin Blue Line Act in 2017, which, “calls for death penalty to anyone who kills or attempts killing ‘a law enforcement officer, firefighter, or other first responder.’” O’Rourke also called modern law enforcement, "The new Jim Crow," and last year expressed his admiration for the NFL players who took a knee in retaliation to acts of police brutality against black people.
  • Demeaning Comments About Women: O’Rourke wrote a review of the Broadway musical "The Will Rogers Follies" while studying at Columbia University. In it, he criticized the, "perma-smile actresses whose only qualifications seem to be their phenomenally large breasts and tight buttocks." O’Rourke apologized for his article, saying that he had, “no excuse for making disrespectful and demeaning comments about women."

Beto O’Rourke Immigration Plan: No Walls; Amnesty for Dreamers, Parents, ‘Millions More’

 20 Feb 2019936

Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) isn’t yet a candidate for the Democrat presidential election, but he is already making clear his stance on immigration — open borders and amnesty for all of the people in the country illegally.

Media outlets, including the Houston Chronicle, are reporting O’Rourke has released a “10-point plan.”
The Chronicle reported:
After three terms in Congress and an unsuccessful bid for the U.S. Senate, El Paso Democrat Beto O’Rourke has made clear his view that immigrants should be welcomed as “human beings” and that “walls end lives.”
Now, signaling that he may soon announce a 2020 White House run, O’Rourke is putting a finer point on his immigration agenda, releasing a 10-point plan that calls for citizenship for both “Dreamers” and their parents, as well as for “millions more” who now live in the U.S. illegally.
And not only is O’Rourke against building more walls along the U.S. border with Mexico but he has expressed support for tearing down existing barriers that divide El Paso from Mexico.
“Yes, absolutely. I’d take the wall down,” O’Rourke said in an MSNBC interview.
One politico scientist with the University of Houston quoted in the Chronicle report said this position puts O’Rourke on the left side of the ever-growing Democrat presidential field.
“That is fairly to the left of where most of the people in the Democratic field are,” Brandon Rottinghaus said.
The Chronicle noted that tearing down walls was not on the immigration policy list, “an omission that is likely to raise new questions about his border policy positions.”
One strange point in O’Rourke’s immigration plan is the argument that a wall would make it harder for people here illegally to return home.
“Here’s why,” O’Rourke wrote, “as we made it harder for people to cross into the United States, we made it less likely that once here they would attempt to go back to their home country. Fearing an increasingly militarized border, circular patterns of migration became linear.”
His amnesty proposal is sweeping and includes all of the Dreamers, their parents — whom he calls “the original Dreamers” — and would bring “millions more out of the shadows and on a path to citizenship by ensuring that they register with the government to gain status to legally work, pay taxes and contribute even more to our country’s success.”
Republicans may be cheering O’Rourke’s radical stance on immigration.
“He is now showing, even more, how out of touch he is and how little he cares for American citizens and those who have followed the law to seek to become citizens,” Texas Republican Party Chairman James Dickey said. “Creating a whole new class of citizens whose status is a direct reward for breaking the law is just his latest dangerous extremist position.”
“O’Rourke’s new policy paper does not call for abolishing ICE, but it does call for, an ‘end to the global war on drugs’ which he says has accelerated the erosion of civil society in Latin America and helped produce the resulting flow of immigrants and refugees,” the Chronicle reported.
During his unsuccessful race to replace Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX),  O’Rourke’s Senate campaign website  spelled out some of his immigration priorities:
• End the militarization of our immigration enforcement system and close private immigration prisons and detention centers that profit from locking up families.
• Pass the DREAM Act and ensure that undocumented immigrants who were brought here as children, known as ‘Dreamers’, find a permanent home and citizenship in the U.S.
• Ensure that those who come to our borders seeking refuge from violence and persecution are given a fair opportunity to present their claims and guaranteed due process under our laws.
• Improve the immigration system to encourage and facilitate family reunification, education, and the investment of talent in our country.
• Modernize the visa system to allow U.S. employers to find workers for jobs that American workers can’t fill.
• Reform our immigration laws to legalize the status of millions of immigrants already in our country and ensure a fair path to citizenship for those inspired by the opportunity and ideals that we present to the rest of the world.
O’Rourke recently met with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) about a different kind of campaign in which he would toss his hat in the ring to unseat Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX).
Nothing in O’Rourke’s plan that was reported in the media addressed curtailing drug and human trafficking at the border.



What's Beto's Problem with the Constitution?

When "Beto" O'Rourke recently questioned whether the basic principles of the Constitution still apply in today's world, what exactly did he mean?  Which principles would he reject, and what new principles would he substitute for our governance?
At a time when our Constitution is increasingly attacked as unfairimmoral andobsolete, or simply irrelevant, the pronouncements of political figures such as O'Rourke matter.  O'Rourke is a rising star of the left and a presumed 2020 presidential candidate who, as it happens, comes from Texas, a state with a large number of electoral votes.
To get an idea of O'Rourke's principles, we might look to his recent failed Senate run.  His campaign platform lists 17 major issue categories.  Within O'Rourke's 17 categories are over 75 specific initiatives.
As might be expected, a review of his platform's top initiatives reveals a strong alignment with the progressive left on nearly every point: health care a "basic human right," ensuring "guaranteed due process" as well as citizenship for illegal immigrants, correcting "bias" in the criminal justice system, increasing public funding for "underserved communities," "protecting" teachers' pensions, and much more.
Within this potpourri of regulation, handouts, and carveouts, we can discern a common thread:  a larger role for government -- specifically the federal government -- tacitly justified by a deluge of empathy.
O'Rourke's platform aligns neatly with Franklin D. Roosevelt's "second bill of rights" of the 1940s, which viewed the Constitution as inadequate and proposed a vast expansion of federal power and reach as a correction.  In more recent times, FDR's view was embraced by Barack Obama, who described the Constitution dismissively as a "charter of negative liberties."  O'Rourke is only the latest in a long line of progressives who plainlyhave trouble with the Constitution.
Yet if O'Rourke's platform contains any actual new "principles of governance" that are somehow superior to the Constitution's and presumably should supersede them, they are obscured by the gratuitous empathy that motivates his initiatives.  O'Rourke simply identifies numerous "victims" and makes himself their gallant champion.
In the realm of civics, it is vital to be skeptical of empathy.  Viewed cynically, empathy is politically useful inasmuch as it makes it easy to seduce the persuadable to your side, and it opens the door wide to politically useful virtue-signaling.
But viewed realistically, empathy in civic discourse is insidious and corrosive.  It is wholly incompatible with rational judgment and sober decision-making -- hallmarks of good governance.  Instead, empathy empowers a few individuals to hijack civic priorities, irrespective of facts and in circumvention of just process.  Empathy demands compassionate action regardless of any obstacles -- never mind that resources are always and everywhere limited.  Empathy privileges certain preferred choices over others, without regard to their relative worthiness -- necessarily trampling the legitimate rights of the truly worthy.  Empathy silences opposing points of view, as its claim to the moral high ground makes it virtually immune to criticism.
Does O'Rourke actually understand the real principles at the foundation of the Constitution?  Does he appreciate their wisdom and importance?
The Founders were learned men, keen students of human history and human nature, who had endured tyranny firsthand.  They understood human weakness and fallibility.  They observed the corrupting influence of power on leadership.  They appreciated the essential limits and inadequacies of every sort of governance and authority.  They respected that individuals, men and women -- and only they -- are the proper guardians of their destiny.
These are durable, unchanging, inherent principles of humankind, and the Constitution embodies this found wisdom.  In devising a new form of government, the Founders incorporated these understandings through a variety of structural limitations, controls and "checks and balances" upon government, and upon those who hold office.  The Bill of Rights further embodies key concepts of liberty, most importantly the principle of inalienable rights, that additionally restrict the powers of the federal government.  This formula of restrained government as an enabler of unprecedented social and economic freedom, combined with individual enterprise, produced the wealthiest and most beneficent nation on Earth, and we are its fortunate inheritors.
Beto O'Rourke is simply wrong to declare these principles obsolete.  Human nature has not changed.  The passage of "230-plus years" since the Constitution's adoption makes no difference whatsoever.
Is O'Rourke merely ignorant of this basic truth?  O'Rourke calls for a "discussion" on these principles, but it is hard to see this as anything other than their implicit rejection.  More likely, holding his own views as incontrovertible, O'Rourke arrogantly seeks to control the affairs of American citizens and will use the power of government to achieve his ends.  For such purposes the Constitution is decidedly an obstacle and not an enabler.
But who is Beto, or any of his philosophical predecessors and cohorts, to make intimate decisions and judgments for others' lives, families and destinies?  Election to office is not such a license, as the Founders understood.  It takes stupendous hubris, conceit, and a wholly unjustified sense of personal righteousness, to usurp this privilege.
Only a sound and respected republican Constitution will prevent people like O'Rourke from putting the government in charge of literally everything. 


Texas Finds 95,000 Non-US Citizens Registered To Vote -- 58,000 Have Actually Voted In Recent Elections


On Friday January 25, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced that 95,000 individuals registered to vote in the Lone Star State have been identified as "Non-US Citizens," meaning they are illegally registered to vote. Further evidence brought forth by Texas Secretary of State David Whitely confirms that 58,000 of these individuals have broken the law and voted in "one or more" recent elections.
“Every single instance of illegal voting threatens democracy in our state and deprives individual Texans of their voice," AG Paxton said in a statement. "My Election Fraud Unit stands ready to investigate and prosecute crimes against the democratic process when needed."

VOTER FRAUD ALERT: The @TXsecofstate discovered approx 95,000 individuals identified by DPS as non-U.S. citizens have a matching voter registration record in TX, approx 58,000 of whom have voted in TX elections. Any illegal vote deprives Americans of their voice.

According to a press release issued by the Attorney General's office, while non-US citizens are legally allowed to obtain driver's licenses and other forms of ID, "only citizens are eligible to vote." Furthermore, the Sec. of State's office notes that "Voting in an election in which the person knows he or she is not eligible to vote is a second-degree felony in the State of Texas. " 
Sec. of State Whitely discovered a "total of approximately 95,000 individuals" illegally registered to vote after a year-long evaluation of Texas county voting registrars. Today, his office announced that 58,000 of these individuals actually voted in one or more election. 
"Integrity and efficiency of elections in Texas require accuracy of our state's voter rolls, and my office is committed to using all available tools under the law to maintain an accurate list of registered voters. Our agency has provided extensive training opportunities to county voter registrars so that they can properly perform list maintenance activities in accordance with federal and state law, which affords every registered voter the chance to submit proof of eligibility," Sec. of State Whitely told the media. 
The report notes that Sec. of State Whitely "immediately provided the data in its possession to the Texas Attorney General's office, as the Secretary of State has no statutory enforcement authority to investigate or prosecute alleged illegal activity in connection with an election."
"Nothing is more vital to preserving our Constitution than the integrity of our voting process, and my office will do everything within its abilities to solidify trust in every election in the state of Texas. I applaud Secretary of State Whitley for his proactive work in safeguarding our elections," AG Paxton added.

Top 5 Voter Fraud Cases Along Texas Border in 2018… which are the only counties that voted for La Raza Beto!


In a year fraught with voter fraud allegations, many of which resulted in prosecutions across Texas, counties along the Mexican border stood out as hotbeds for investigative activities.

Here are the top 5 voter fraud cases along the Texas border in 2018:
1.  Three arrested in Starr County investigation for fraudulently filling in mail-in ballots–one for a dead person.
Breitbart TV

In January, authorities arrested Ernestina Barron, 50, a Rio Grande City school district employee, on three counts of election fraud and three counts of a fraudulent application for a mail-in ballot for filling out applications illegally for other voters in an earlier election. Days later, officials charged Erika Lozano-Pelayo, 37, after she purportedly submitted an absentee ballot for a voter who died but remained on the voter registration rolls. A third woman, Belinda Garcia, 45, surrendered to the Starr County Special Crimes Unit on a charge of fraudulently applying for a mail-in ballot. She reportedly said the voter was disabled but this was not true.
2. 14 Hidalgo County residents charged in voter fraud scheme. 
A total of 14 residents were arrested for their purported roles in a voter scheme that recruited people to falsely claim residential addresses so they could vote in specific races and manipulate the results of a 2017 Edinburg city election. Investigators with the Hidalgo County DA’s office, the Texas Rangers, and Office of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton initially arrested four of the suspects in May 2018, all of whom illegally voted in that 2017 election. One was a convicted human smuggler serving probation who voted illegally. Two claimed to live in the city’s limits, but, in fact, resided elsewhere. Another suspect was only charged with making a false statement on a voter registration form. In June, county officials charged a fifth person with two counts of illegal voting. Then, in November, nine more were arrested. The investigation continues and more arrests may come in 2019.
3. Non-U.S. citizen indicted for leading “voter assistance” ring that targeted elderly and disabled voters in Hidalgo County.
In June, a Hidalgo County grand jury indicted Marcela Guttierrez, a non-U.S. citizen on an illegal voting charge for misleading a voter to believe she was demonstrating how to use a voting machine when, actually, Guttierez voted for a slate of candidates she was paid to support in a June 2016 Hidalgo city runoff election. Two of her fellow campaign workers, Sylvia Arojano and Sara Ornelas, also were charged with seven counts of unlawfully assisting voters. Reportedly, Arojano is married to a school board member for the Hidalgo County school district.
4. Poll watcher accuses Hidalgo city official of unlawfully assisting a voter in the 2018 midterm.
In December, the Texas Secretary of State escalated a voter fraud complaint to Paxton’s office. A poll watcher accused Hidalgo City Councilman Rodolfo “Rudy” Franz of unlawfully assisting a voter during the 2018 midterm election’s early voting period. The complaint alleged that Franz suggested and instructed the voter on who to vote for on their ballot even though Franz was asked multiple times by election workers to stop.
5. Texas Democratic Party accused of encouraging noncitizens to vote in 2018 November midterm in Rio Grande Valley.
An October complaint accused the Texas Democratic Party of mailing “altered” voter registration applications to noncitizens in the Rio Grande Valley. The mailers allegedly had the U.S. citizenship box pre-checked, creating false claims to voter eligibility. The document urged recipients to vote in the November midterm election. The box asking if a voter will be 18 years of age on or before election day also was pre-filled. The Public Interest Legal Foundation, an election integrity law firm, alerted Starr and Hidalgo county district attorneys, Paxton, Texas Secretary of State Rolando Pablos, and the U.S.  Department of Justice (DOJ) about the complaint. Subsequently, Pablos referred the complaint to Paxton’s office for further investigation.
While Texas border voter fraud cases permeated Breitbart News coverage, other high profiles cases in the Lone Star State garnered honorable mentions:
Texas AG to prosecute three indicted on nine counts of voter fraud in Nueces County 2016 Democratic primary runoff.
Paxton announced his office would prosecute three residents indicted by a grand jury on nine counts of voter fraud stemming back to a May 2016 Nueces County Democratic primary runoff election. County Clerk Kara Sands presented data to a local commissioners court in January that unmasked the alleged voter fraud.
Salvadoran illegal immigrant living in East Texas since the 1980s was indicted on voter fraud and immigration violations charges.
In June, Texas prosecutors indicted Salvadoran national Mario Obdulio Orellana, 57, who lived illegally in the state since the 1980s. Officials said Orellana purportedly falsified documents to obtain a U.S. birth certificate, applied for and received a U.S. passport and a Social Security number. Prosecutors said Orellano claimed to be a U.S. citizen when he registered to vote and fraudulently cast a ballot in the 2016 presidential election.
Mexican national faces deportation after pleading guilty to voter fraud in Texas.
In September, Mexican national Laura Janeth Garza, 38, pleaded guilty to voter fraud charges for voting in three election cycles, including 2016. She did so by stealing a Texan’s identity to obtain a U.S. passport and Social Security number. The American citizen victim learned about the fraud when she tried to apply for a passport in her own name and discovered Garza already did so. Garza was sentenced to 10 years in jail, after which she will be deported.
Texas AG: Democratic Party leader funded “voter fraud ring” in Tarrant County.
In October, Paxton’s office indicted four North Texas women for their alleged roles in a “voter fraud ring” that targeted the elderly in select northern Fort Worth precincts during the March 2016 Democrat Party primary election. Subsequently released court documents revealed the ringleader, Leticia Sanchez, 57, allegedly paid her co-defendants with funds provided by the then Tarrant County Democratic Party Executive Director, Stuart Clegg. The scheme reportedly intended to influence the outcome of certain down-ballot races. Allegedly, they did this by “seeding” or proliferating mail-in ballots through forged signatures and altering historical applications, then resubmitting them without the voter’s knowledge.
In Texas, illegal voting is a second degree felony punishable up to 20 years in $10,000 fine. Making a false statement on a voter registration application is a Class B misdemeanor.

Former Mexican President Vicente Fox came out in support of Democratic Texas Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke, in a Thursday evening tweet.

.@BetoORourke, what a candidate you are! You not only understand America, you know about humanity. This is what the U.S. needs: someone compassionate yet firm. I stand with you because I believe you’re what America needs.
— Vicente Fox Quesada (@VicenteFoxQue) October 19, 2018

Fox served as the Mexican president from 2000 to 2006 and has been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump. The former Mexican president’s comments follow O’Rourke’s appearance at a CNN town hall Thursday evening and a debate with Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

O’Rourke is current trailing Cruz by several points in the Senate race.
Fox has often unleashed profanity laced pronouncements aimed at Trump, particularly on Trump’s declaration that the U.S. will make Mexico pay for his proposed wall along the southern border.

“I’m not going to pay for that fucking wall,” Fox declared in a Fusion TV interview. In another profane tweet Fox urged Trump to “get his shit together.”

.@realDonaldTrump, you’ve got to get your shit together: migrants are people who have left everything behind – not by choice, to pursue a better life. You must show compassion and humanity. your golden head and a #FuckingWall won’t stop these people’s dreams and hopes.

Texas Democrats asking non-citizens to vote

The Public Interest Legal Foundation has alerted the Justice Department to a gambit by Texas Democrats to get non-citizens to vote.

The state party sent out a voter registration form asking non-citizens to sign up, with the citizenship box already checked "yes."

The Public Interest Legal Foundation alerted district attorneys and the federal Justice Department to the pre-checked applications, and also included a signed affidavit from a man who said some of his relatives, who aren't citizens, received the mailing.
"This is how the Texas Democratic Party is inviting foreign influence in an election in a federal election cycle," said Logan Churchwell, spokesman for the PILF, a group that's made its mark policing states' voter registration practices.

The Texas secretary of state's office said it, too, had gotten complaints both from immigrants [sic] and from relatives of dead people who said they got mailings asking them to register.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott vowed to investigate.

"If true there will be serious consequences," he said.

This is an open invitation for voter fraud on a large scale, and the way the Democrats went about it defies belief:

The applications were pre-addressed to elections officials, which is likely what left many voters to believe they were receiving an official communication from the state.

But the return address was from the State Democratic Executive Committee, and listed an address in Austin that matches the state Democratic Party's headquarters.

The letter is emblazoned with "Urgent!  Your voter registration deadline is October 9."  It continues: "Your voter registration application is inside.  Complete, sign and return it today!"

On the application, boxes affirming the applicant is both 18 and a U.S. citizen are already checked with an "X" in the Yes field.
The mailing also urges those who are unsure if they're registered to "Mail it in."

Dead people were also being asked to vote.
Sam Taylor, spokesman for Texas's secretary of state, said they heard from people whose relatives were receiving mail despite having passed away 10 years ago or longer.  One woman said her child, who'd been dead 19 years, got a mailing asking to register.

"It looks like a case of really bad information they are using to send out these mailers," Mr. Taylor said.

Mr. Taylor is being very charitable.  I doubt very much whether it's "bad information" being used by Democrats. 

How many other state Democratic Parties send out similar requests to non-citizens and haven't been caught?  Are we to believe that one party in one state came up with this idea all on its own?  Perhaps, but not likely. 

Many liberals believe that anyone in the United States – citizen or non-citizen – should be able to vote.  If they want to make that argument and change the law to make it happen, they are more than welcome to try.  Of course, if they run on that issue, they will get slaughtered at the polls.  So instead of going to the American people and working to change the law, they try an underhanded dirty trick to achieve the same goal.

Someone should go to jail for this ruse.

ICE Releases Hundreds of Migrants in Texas over Christmas

 26 Dec 201853

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has released hundreds of migrants in El Paso, Texas over the past few days, including 186 on Christmas Day.

The local CBS affiliate reported that ICE has released 400 migrants.

Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX), who lost his Senate bid to incumbent Republican Ted Cruz, is cited in the story as being instrumental in making sure ICE informs city officials of impending releases.

“As a result, nonprofits were a bit more prepared for the large intake,” CBS4 reported.
“They’re coming from immigration cells, so they’re coming hungry, they’re coming thirsty, most haven’t bathed in a long time. The situation is really difficult for them,” Dylan Corbett, executive director of Hope Border Institute, said in the CBS4 story.
The report also includes comments from “Ingrid,” who is from Honduras and brought her 4-year-old son with her to the U.S. border.
“I mean, it’s unreal, like a dream,” Ingrid said. “They gave us clothes, food, everything. I really didn’t expect this, thank you so much.”
The CBS4 report included a statement from ICE:
After decades of inaction by Congress, the government remains severely constrained in its ability to detain and promptly remove families with no legal basis to remain in the U.S. To mitigate the risk of holding family units past the timeframe allotted to the government, ICE has curtailed reviews of post-release plans from families apprehended along the southwest border. ICE continues to work with local and state officials and NGO partners in the area so they are prepared to provide assistance with transportation or other services.

The CBS4 story includes photos of children eating Christmas cookies and candy.

The Real Beto O’Rourke

Although he said both before and after losing the Senate race in Texas to Ted Cruz that he had no plan to run for office in 2020, Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke recently left the door wide open. And now he has met with Obama at his home in Washington. In that context, I sent a list of questions to his press spokeswoman, but never received an answer. 

The first question dealt with whether O'Rourke has any Hispanic heritage, or whether, as he is in truth, fourth-generation Irish. As a child living in El Paso, O'Rourke was given the nickname "Beto," which is a common Hispanic moniker for Roberto, in order to delineate between him and his maternal grandfather, Robert Williams. When O'Rourke attended Columbia in New York he used "Rob," but his father, then El Paso County Judge Pat O'Rourke, suggested that he once again use "Beto" to increase his chance of winning political office in the heavily Hispanic city of El Paso, which Robert readily agreed to do. 
He graduated from Columbia in 1995, and later that month was arrested for burglary at UTEP (the University of Texas El Paso) along with two others. He has previously explained it as a prank from his college years. I asked his spokeswoman if it was true he had already graduated from Columbia and never attended UTEP; what the purpose of the burglary was; what his relationship with Jose Prieto, Jr. and Jacob Barowsky whom he was arrested with was, and where they were located today. I received no response.   

Concerning O'Rourke's 1998 DWI, I asked his spokeswoman why he never admitted the incident also involved a hit and run until the press obtained the arrest reports last August. O'Rourke now claims it was not a hit and run, but I asked the spokeswoman if the arresting officer and a witness who reportedly chased him were lying after O'Rourke, going at an excessive rate of speed, struck a truck on I-10 west of El Paso and ended up on the other side of the Interstate, and then fled. Again no response.
O'Rourke also now claims that he recently contacted a passenger who was with him that night who verified he did not leave the scene, but has not said who she is. I received no response. I also asked why none of the reports during O'Rourke's arrest and processing mentioned another passenger, but did mention another passenger with the witness who pursued and stopped him. Again, no response.  And I asked why O'Rourke told the police he had only two beers, when his high intoxication level showed he had consumed at least six. 

About his campaign, I asked why he had claimed that the record of more than 70 million dollars raised had mostly come from Texas, when in reality less than a third did, while a staggering 75 percent came from ActBlue, the leftist fundraising group. I asked why O'Rourke promised not to run a negative campaign, but he eventually ran some highly inflammatory and personal attacks ads against Ted Cruz.
Concerning President Trump, on a number of occasions, O'Rourke has said he supports impeachment. I asked if he still supports impeachment and based on what evidence. I also asked the spokeswoman whether, if elected, his previous positions would taint any potential impeachment vote. Current rumors are he might run against Senator John Cornyn and Trump in 2020, which in Texas would be legal. Still no response.
I noted that it's a matter of record that he has heavily used marijuana and alcohol and asked if he still does. I also noted that O'Rourke profusely sweats even under perfect conditions, while at the same time others do not, and if he would be willing to take a complete physical exam. No response. 
And now after saying he may still run for office, as well as meeting personally with Obama, I asked if he has any intention to be on the national ticket in 2020, but still got no response. 
A few days later, I sent a follow-up email to the spokeswoman noting I had received no response and intended to write an article regardless. So I added one more question. O'Rourke used the f-word live on national television in his concession speech, and used it as well at several other points in his campaign. Does O'Rourke think it is appropriate as a leader to behave in such a fashion? Still no response. 

His language, along with his use of skateboards to enter campaign rallies, shows a basic immaturity and lack of seriousness to hold high public office. Considering O'Rourke's misleading claims about his heritage and serious issues concerning his controversial past, as well as his obvious desire to hold political office, these kinds of questions would normally be asked of a potential candidate. 
But so far, his supporters among the mainstream press have failed to do so. And after their recent fawning coverage and the record millions raised for his campaign, O'Rourke still failed to win. Time will tell if the public will learn who the real Robert Francis O'Rourke is.

Beto: 2020 Will Be ‘Mother of All Tests’ for Democracy

  14 Dec 2018832

Saying “there’s never been a darker moment” in America in his lifetime, Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (D-TX), a potential 2020 presidential candidate, said on Friday that President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign will be the “mother of all tests for this democracy.”

Speaking at a town hall event in El Paso, Texas, O’Rourke deflected questions about whether he will run for president, saying the 2020 questions were “interesting, speculative” questions that he wanted to “treat with respect since this is an official town hall that is focused on my responsibilities to you as a member of Congress.”
He said whoever runs against Trump in 2020 “may very well be running against somebody who has not the slightest respect for our norms, traditions, our institutions, civility, dignity, decency in public life.”
“This is the test, this is the mother of all tests for this democracy–whether we can run a campaign and have candidates at all levels from school board to the White House,” O’Rourke added before saying that though he is hopeful that “something good is going to come out of all this at the end of the day,” there has “never been a darker moment, at least in my lifetime, in this country.”
He added that “there’s never been a greater, more open question about rule of law, about whether our democracy can sustain the kind of attacks on our institutions… on our press, our courts, this cynical display of power of 5,400 troops sent to the border in the lead up to the midterm elections.”
O’Rourke even suggested that the Trump administration could have planned crowd control exercises in El Paso, Texas, to suppress his voters in 2018.
The failed Senate candidate spoke about the “crowd control exercises proposed in El Paso by the Border Patrol on election day — in this city that had the greatest turnout trying to perhaps suppress that turnout.”
“Who knows. You never want to ascribe motive, but it’s hard to understand why you would pick that day of all days,” he said, adding that he has lived in the El Paso area for most of his life and did not understand “the need for doing that.”
O’Rourke blasted Trump for saying “anything you want to from the highest perch in power” that had been revered for 242 years and said the true test in 2020 will be whether Democrats can campaign on issues against Trump instead of going for the most “bast impulses, instincts among us.”
He said the challenge in 2020 will be to not “succumb to the smallness, pettiness, and divisiveness” that defines so much of the national conversation under Trump.

Obama Granted Soros-Tied Group $310M to Help Migrants Avoid Deportation

  6 Dec 20181,426
Former President Barack Obama’s administration rewarded an organization with ties to globalist billionaire George Soros to help Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs) avoid deportation from the United States.

An Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) investigation reveals that between 2015 and 2016, the Obama administration rewarded the Vera Institute of Justice $310 million in contracts to help UACs — young migrants who came to the U.S.-Mexico border unaccompanied — avoid deportation.
The IRLI investigation reveals that the Obama administration rewarded the Vera Justice Institute with millions in American taxpayer-funded contracts to give “direct legal representation” to UACs in deportation proceedings.
“When the federal government pays for illegal alien minors to receive direct legal representation, it does more than flout the law,” IRLI executive director Dale Wilcox said in a statement.
“These unauthorized payments have undoubtedly speeded-up UACs’ release from detention facilities to join their families, relatives, or fellow gang members – or help them reconnect with and pay ‘pandillas,’ the criminal cartels that make enormous profits from controlling human trafficking over the southern border,” Wilcox said. “My guess is that average voters would not be pleased to know that such vast amounts of their tax dollars are being spent in aid of this giant criminal enterprise.”
The Vera Justice Center was previously headed by Christopher Stone, who also served as the president of Soros’s Open Society Foundation between 2012 and 2017. Soros’s Open Society Foundation also previously awarded funding to the Vera Justice Center.
Federal officials have said that UACs pouring into the U.S. are “potential recruits” for violent foreign gangs like MS-13 that have taken a stronghold in American communities. In 2017 alone, more than 40,000 UACs were resettled across the U.S. after they arrived in the country unaccompanied.

Another Surge of Illegal Immigrants Along the Southwest Border: Is this the Obama Administration’s New Normal?

First, destroy Trump and put Hillary away if she doesn’t end up in jail.


“Obama would declare himself president for life with Soros really running the show, as he did for the entire Obama presidency.”

“Hillary was always small potatoes, a placeholder as it were. Her health was always suspect. And do you think the plotters would have let a doofus like Tim Kaine take office in the event that Hillary became disabled?”

“Obama has the totalitarian impulse. After all, he went around saying he didn't have Constitutional authority to legalize the illegals, and then he tried anyway. The courts stopped him.”

“The bottom line 2 is this: Barack Obama is a Communist. This was all an Obama operation. Why is anyone surprised that a communist (Obama) tried to subvert an election. That is what Communists do. It is Barack Obama and his people like Brennan and Clapper behaving to type. That's what Maduro does in Venezuela. That's what the Castro brothers did. That's what every communist and socialist nation does. THEY FIX ELECTIONS!!”

Hillary kept a secret server overflowing with national security info which, more than likely, was hacked. June 28, 2016, on a Phoenix tarmac, Bill Clinton met with Attorney General Loretta Lynch to seal a deal insuring Hillary would not be prosecuted.”

Obama, of course, covered up his own role, depicting his presidency as eight years of heroic efforts to repair the damage caused by the 2008 financial crash. At the end of those eight years, however, Wall Street and the financial oligarchy were fully recovered, enjoying record wealth, while working people were poorer than before, a widening social chasm that made possible the election of the billionaire con man and Demagogue in November 2016.”

MULTI-CULTURALISM and the creation of a one-party globalist country to serve the rich in America’s open borders.

“Open border advocates, such as Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, claim illegal aliens are a net benefit to California with little evidence to support such an assertion. As the CIS has documented, the vast majority of illegals are poor, uneducated, and with few skills. How does accepting millions of illegal aliens and then granting them access to dozens of welfare programs benefit California’s economy? If illegals were contributing to the economy in any meaningful way, CA, with its 2.6 million illegals, would be booming.” STEVE BALDWIN – AMERICAN SPECTATOR



Those are the subliterate, low-skill, non-English-speaking indigents whose own societies are unable or unwilling to usefully educate and employ them. Bring these people here and they not only need a lot of services, they are putty in the hands of leftist demogogues as Hugo Chavez demonstrated - and they are very useful as leftist voters who will support the Soros agenda.


BARACK OBAMA’S HISPANICAZATION of AMERICA… first ease millions of illegals over our borders and into our voting booths!

 How the Democrat party surrendered America to Mexico:

“The watchdogs at Judicial Watch discovered documents that reveal how the Obama administration's close coordination with the Mexican government entices Mexicans to hop over the fence and on to the American dole.”  Washington Times

"This is country belongs to Mexico" is said by the Mexican Militant. This is a common teaching that the U.S. is really AZTLAN, belonging to Mexicans, which is taught to Mexican kids in Arizona and California through a LA Raza educational program funded by American Tax Payers via President Obama, when he gave LA RAZA $800,000.00 in March of 2009!

The “zero tolerance” program was dismantled by Attorney General Erc Holder once it had successfully cut the transit of migrants by roughly 95 percent. Initially, officials made 140,000 arrests per year in the mid-2000s, but the northward flow dropped so much that officials only had to make 6,000 arrests in 2013, according to a 2014 letter by two pro-migration Senators, Sen. Jeff Flake and John McCain.

“The cost of the Dream Act is far bigger than the Democrats or their media allies admit. Instead of covering 690,000 younger illegals now enrolled in former President Barack Obama’s 2012 “DACA” amnesty, the Dream Act would legalize at least 3.3 million illegals, according to a pro-immigration group, the Migration Policy Institute.”

Only in America could critics of a group called "The Race" be labeled racists. Such is the triumph of left-wing identity chauvinists, whose aggressive activists and supine abettors have succeeded in redefining all opposition as "hate."

Peter Beinart, a frequent contributor to the New York TimesNew York Review of BooksHaaretz, and former editor of the New Republic, blames immigration for deteriorating social conditions for the American working class: The supposed “costs” of immigration, he says, “strain the very welfare state that liberals want to expand in order to help those native-born Americans with whom immigrants compete.”

The myth, which liberals like myself find tempting, is that only the right has changed. In June 2015, we tell ourselves, Donald Trump rode down his golden escalator and pretty soon nativism, long a feature of conservative politics, had engulfed it. But that’s not the full story. If the right has grown more nationalistic, the left has grown less so. A decade ago, liberals publicly questioned immigration in ways that would shock many progressives today.

In 2005, a left-leaning blogger wrote, “Illegal immigration wreaks havoc economically, socially, and culturally; makes a mockery of the rule of law; and is disgraceful just on basic fairness grounds alone.” In 2006, a liberal columnist wrote that “immigration reduces the wages of domestic workers who compete with immigrants” and that “the fiscal burden of low-wage immigrants is also pretty clear.” His conclusion: “We’ll need to reduce the inflow of low-skill immigrants.” That same year, a Democratic senator wrote, “When I see Mexican flags waved at pro-immigration demonstrations, I sometimes feel a flush of patriotic resentment. When I’m forced to use a translator to communicate with the guy fixing my car, I feel a certain frustration.”
