‘Beto’ Whines About ‘Wealth Inequality,’ Doesn’t Mention His Filthy Rich In-Laws

His party backers are fat cats too.

Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke complains about wealth inequality, yet his wife Amy Sanders O’Rourke is the likely heiress to a vast fortune, according to a report from the Spectator.

Nevertheless, the 2020 presidential hopeful recently tweeted about the level of inequality present in America.

O’Rourke declared that this “unprecedented concentration of wealth, power and privilege” in America “must be broken apart.”

The former congressmen and failed Senate candidate’s campaign has largely been focused on neoliberal pet issues such as higher taxes, climate change legislation, and heavy gun control.

However, O’Rourke has positioned himself as the immigration candidate that supports a more “humane” alternative to President Trump’s policies — better known as open borders.

Ironically, conservative commentators like Michelle Malkin and Lou Dobbs have pointed out that mass migration will worsen the inequality that O’Rourke complains about due to depressed wages.

On top of that, O’Rourke’s platform does nothing to substantially overhaul the U.S.’s tax code, which rich oligarchs and Democratic Party backers like George Soros exploit to their own benefit.

Nor does O’Rourke touch the regulatory state in Washington D.C. which crushes small businesses and keeps many lower to lower-middle class Americans from rising up in the economic ranks. Trump actually passed an executive order that rolled backed a considerable list of Obama-era regulations in order to give small businesses breathing room.

According to the Census Bureau, five of America’s richest counties are located in D.C. suburbs, largely thanks to the unprecedented levels of government growth.  None of this is addressed by O’Rourke’s 2020 platform.

After a surprising showing in the 2018 elections for the U.S. Senate in Texas, O’Rourke appears to be one of the favorites to win the Democratic nomination.

U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel

Published

on

Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.

The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”

U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.

Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.

According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.

The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.

In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.

This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,

That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
