Beto ORourke Stingy Charity Donations

Democrat presidential candidate and noted Irishman Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke donated just over $1,100 of his nearly $400,000 earnings to charity in 2017, and explained that his main act of charity was to give voters the opportunity to see more of “Beto” on the campaign trail.

This number amounts to just over one third of 1 per cent of O’Rourke’s earnings, or 0.34 per cent. For the average American household making roughly $56,000 per year, this would translate to about $192 donated to charity.

The number comes from O’Rourke’s 2017 tax returns.

When asked by an attendee at one of his events about the remarkably low percentage donated to charity, O’Rourke gave a rambling and pompous response, suggesting that his mere presence on the campaign trail is a phenomenal form of charity to the public.

“I’ve served in public office since 2005, I do my best to contribute to my community, my state, and now my country,” said Beto while flailing his arms. “There are ways that I do this that are measurable, and there are ways that are not measurable. There are charities that we donate to that we reported and itemized, others we have donated to that are not.”

The Democrat from Texas, who uses a Spanish abbreviation for “Roberto” as his nickname, continued by saying “I’m doing everything that I can right now, spending this time with you, not with our kiddos, not back home in El Paso, because I want to sacrifice everything to make sure that we meet this moment of truth with everything that we’ve got.”

In other words, it is okay that O’Rourke does not donate to charity because sometimes he does and does not itemize it when filing his taxes, and more importantly, he is running for office.

Public service, in O’Rourke’s mind, appears synonymous with charity.

This might make sense if O’Rourke did not take a salary in 2017 and instead donated his Congressional salary to charity, as does President Trump who recently donated his third quarter salary to alcoholism research, but this is also untrue.

In addition to the $174,000 O’Rourke took home while serving in Congress, a 2018 article revealed he has assets valued between $3.5 million and $16 million.

It appears O’Rourke may simply be one of the greedy, lying, white men the Democrats loathe so fiercely.

Arizona Legislature to Hold Public Hearings on Matters of Election Integrity, “Stop the Steal” Rally Being Held Saturday

The hearing will be held on November 30th.

The Arizona legislature will hold a hearing on election improprieties and the integrity of the state’s 2020 election on Monday. Members of the Arizona Senate and House of Representatives will participate on the public event.

Representative Mark Finchem of Legislative District will chair the hearing.

“Since shortly before the 2020 election a number of my colleagues and I have been examining potential fraud pathways and illegal actions through which our 2020 election could become tainted. My worst fears have come to light in the process, and so far the evidence has been blocked from an official public forum,” Rep. Finchem said. “A few weeks ago I requested approval for the House Federal Relations Committee to hold a hearing on the integrity of the Arizona 2020 election. That hearing has not yet been approved by House leadership, and time is of the essence to show proof that our election has been compromised.

Finchem cited sworn affidavits attesting to irregularities in Arizona’s election, voter fraud, and poor management on the part of (now outgoing) Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes.

After a review of the statistical anomalies, and there are to numbers to count, affidavits of improper actions, and community outrage that has grown out of what appears to voters to be an attempt to throw the election through a number of fraudulent efforts, we decided as a Members of the Legislature, and not as members of any specific committee, that we should move forward with a public hearing.

Trump campaign attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis are expected to attend the hearing. Joe Biden appears to have won the state of Arizona by just over 10,000 votes.

State legislators have an imperative to remedy and rectify any election issues stemming from governmental improprieties, and can potentially appoint electors to the electoral college of their own volition.

A massive “Stop the Steal” rally is being held at the Arizona Legislature on Saturday at noon, with speakers including conservative commentator Nicholas J. Fuentes and Infowars host Alex Jones.
