Beto O'Rourke sounds off on big tech companies like Facebook, Twitter, and Google, says government needs to treat them 'a little bit more like a utility'

Beto O'Rourke, the 2020 presidential candidate and former congressman from Texas, responded to a question about breaking up the big tech companies on Wednesday. O'Rourke, who officially entered the race on March 14, has emerged as a fundraising frontrunner, raking in $6.1 million in 24 hours. O'Rourke was asked about Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren's calls to break up the big tech companies — Google, Facebook, Amazon, and others — by CNN national reporter Eric Bradner. For O'Rourke the "be...

Beto O'Rourke was in the Cult of the Dead Cow and his t-files are still online

Investigative tech journalist Joseph Menn's (previously) next book is a history of the Cult of the Dead Cow (previously) the legendary hacker/prankster group that is considered to be "America's oldest hacking group." In a characteristically excellent Reuters story excerpted from the book, Menn reveals for the first time that Democratic presidential nomination hopeful Beto O'Rourke was an early member of the cDc under the handle "Psychedelic Warlord," having run a cDc BBS, contributed weird ...

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...

Beto O’Rourke, the former Texas congressman who just joined the Democratic presidential race, gained an instant following last year when he came within 3 points of unseating Sen. Ted Cruz.

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...

Beto Sounds Lukewarm On 2020: ‘I Don’t Want To Raise Expectations’

Democratic superstar Beto O’Rourke is sounding less and less enthusiastic about a presidential run, even as his would-be competitors announce their intentions and construct campaign infrastructure. According to a Friday Politico report, he said that his decision could still “potentially” be months away. He added that he’s still feeling the effects of his grueling Senate race against Sen.

Roger Stone: Dirty tricks, a Nixon tattoo, and a lurking presence in shadows of Trump's world

Ultimately, politics was a game Roger Stone loved more than almost anyone. "Politics with me isn't theatre. It's performance art. Sometimes, for its own sake," he said in 2007. A forthright self-promoter, Mr Stone crafted an image with a massive collection of expensive suits hand-tailored for his body-builder frame, joining them with French cuffs and perfectly knotted silk ties. His shoes always shine, as does his hair - for years dyed blonde until, more recently, ceding way to a perfect...

Playing The Waiting Game: Beto Is In No Rush To Decide His 2020 Move

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — If the deep field of potential Democratic presidential contenders is on pins and needles as Beto O’Rourke decides his next move, it could be a long wait. The outgoing Texas congressman’s team says he has no timeline or roadmap for deciding if he’d like to parlay a surprisingly close loss to Republican Sen. Ted Cruz into a White House try. People close to O’Rourke insist he hasn’t expanded staff or lined up consultants even as the interest in him intensifies. They say he’s...

Abrams Confirms That She Will File Lawsuit Challenging GA Electoral System

ATLANTA (AP) — Stacey Abrams broke the rules of politics until the very end. The Georgia Democrat who came about 60,000 votes shy of becoming America’s first black female governor refused to follow the traditional script for defeated politicians who offer gracious congratulations to their victorious competitor and gently exit the stage. Instead, Abrams took an unapologetically indignant tone that established her as a leading voting rights advocate. “I acknowledge that former Secretary of Stat...
