Make Sure Your Campaign Donations Aren't Funding Scams

You know what time it is: that moment when politicians spam your inboxes with requests for money. And gosh darn it, sometimes, they deserve it! Beto, take my money! Warren, here’s my debit card and bank account information! AOC, here’s my life savings! But sometimes, it’s worth being a little more discriminating when…Read more...

Weirdo O’Rourke

Friends of the young Bill Clinton and Barack Obama spoke of the special glow of promise they had about them, even back in their early twenties. Angels sat on their shoulders. History gave them a wink and said, “Hey, good lookin’, I’ll be back to pick you up later.”Robert O’Rourke? Not so much. He was just a weirdo. That isn’t my word, it’s how his friends saw him. “You’re supposed to make friends with future secretaries of state, not weirdo musicians,” one O’Rourke pal, Adam Mortimer, told the N...

A big hand for Beto O'Rourke and his amazing waving arms

The Democratic 2020 presidential candidate has already made a big impression – with his meme-worthy hand movements Beto O’Rourke addresses supporters in Iowa. ‘I’ve never seen so much hand movement,’ said Donald Trump. Photograph: Stephen Maturen/AFP/Getty Images Beto O’Rourke’s freshly announced 2020 White House run has been dismissed as vainglorious by some, but it generated significant excitement among others attracted by media hype and his undoubted charisma. None of that excitement, howe...

In the Woke War against Beto, Root for Beto

Earlier this morning, Robert “Beto” O’Rourke announced that he’s running for president, and there are two things I believe with equal intensity. First, I don’t want Beto to be president. He’s a culturally left economic progressive who may be the serious candidate closest to an actual open-borders position on immigration. Second, I don’t want to see the Democratic party become so radical — and so obsessed with matters of race and privilege — that even Beto is too “moderate” to win.So, in the woke...

Trump Chaffs Beto’s ‘Hand Movement’: ‘Is He Crazy Or Is That Just The Way He Acts?’

President Trump’s main worry when it comes to the firebrand, young liberal who just tossed his hat in the 2020 ring? He gesticulates too much. “Well I think he’s got a lot of hand movement, I’ve never seen so much hand movement,” Trump told reporters in the White House on Thursday when asked about Beto O’Rourke’s candidacy. “I said, ‘Is he crazy or is that just the way he acts?’ I’ve never seen hand movement. I watched him a little while this morning doing, I assume it was some kind of a news...

Trump launches bizarre attack on 'crazy' Beto O'Rourke over his hand movements

Donald Trump has lambasted the latest Democrat to throw their name into a growing pool of 2020 White House hopefuls, questioning Beto O'Rourke's sanity and pointing out his hand gestures on Thursday. “Well I think he has got a lot of hand movements,” the president said during a White House meeting with Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar. The president declined to comment on whether Mr O’Rourke was a stronger opponent than former Vice President Joe Biden, who has not yet launched a bid for the White ...

Trump, Beto Hold Dueling Rallies Across The Street From Each Other

EL PASO, Texas (AP) — President Donald Trump charged ahead with his pledge to build a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border, skimming over the details of lawmakers’ tentative deal that would give him far less than he’s been demanding and declaring he’s “setting the stage” to deliver on his signature campaign promise. In the first dueling rallies of the 2020 campaign season, Trump’s “Finish the Wall” rally in El Paso went head-to-head Monday night against counterprogramming by Beto O’Rourke, a former...

Oprah Presses Beto On 2020: ‘By God, When Are You Going To Know The Answer?’

During an interview with Beto O’Rourke — whose energetic challenge against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in the midterms sparked 2020 speculation — Oprah Winfrey pressed O’Rourke to end the suspense already. “If I can play some role in helping the country do that, by God, I’m going to do it,” O’Rourke said during the interview. “Okay, by God, when are you going to know the answer?” she shot back, a swipe met with applause and laughter. “The serious answer is, really soon,” he said, adding later that h...

As Rep.

According to a Monday Politico report, O’Rourke’s historical fundraising prowess and electric popularity has fundraisers and operatives holding back from other probable candidates in the hopes of signing on with the “new Barack Obama.” “They’re not wanti...

Texas Republicans Used a Punk Rock Photo to Criticize Beto O’Rourke. It Backfired on Twitter

The race for U.S. Senator from Texas between incumbent Ted Cruz and current congressman Beto O’Rourke is reaching a boiling point, with polls showing the opponents in a statistical dead heat as of Wednesday afternoon ahead of election day. So the Texas Republican Party tried this week to get an edge on O’Rourke by circulating a series of old photos of the Democratic candidate. The series attributes O’Rourke’s seeming reticence to debate Cruz to some of his hobbies: in one, he’s posing as pa...

Of sausage-making, DC and bioenergy budgets

The signals coming out of Washington DC are so confusing, you might be wondering if there’s going to be a budget for the US Department of Energy for the fiscal year starting this October. Yep, there will be, but let us explain the current pile of doggy droppings. You see, the Senate took no action on the House’s original 2016 appropriation bill, for the budget year that started last October, until the past month or so. Ultimately, the Senate amended it to read “2017 appropriation” and passed it,...

Beto O’Rourke Is on a Long Hard Road

On a dusty road in southwestern Texas, Beto O’Rourke leans out the window of the Ford Expedition he’s driving and mutters, “You gonna let me pass you, state police?” He speeds ahead of the cruiser while chewing an empanada. In the past seven days, the 45-year-old Democratic Congressman has clocked nearly a thousand miles across the state. Tonight, after a town hall in Uvalde, an hour away, he gets to go home. Small towns have been O’Rourke’s favored terrain since he launched a bid to unseat...
