AUSTIN, TEXAS — In the wake of his failed bid for U.S. Senate, recently announced 2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke confident about his chances, but one thing continues to haunt his political ambitions in every political contest he undertakes: his criminal record.
The “white Barack Obama” — a brand that even barometers of leftist orthodoxy reject, like The Washington Post and New York Times — was arrested in 1995 for breaking and entering, and attempted burglary.
O’Rourke downplayed the serious charge in a Washington Post interview, stating it was a “prank gone awry.”
O’Rourke was arrested again in 1998 for driving under the influence, fact the congressman acknowledged as “stupid,” stating that he regretted his decision.
Robert’s worldview appears to assume that any wrongdoing, any criminal act is second in importance to his belief that he is automatically “the right”
Other compromising video footage was also obtained showing the then-councilman of El Paso publicly intoxicated and dancing with women in a lewd fashion; it appears the congressman is then smacked around by the female while he lay on the floor — seemingly enjoying the activities.
The original video is gone from YouTube, but another video believed to be from the same night, and corroborates the original accounts. It is unknown what happened in between the two videos, nor what is also depicted in the now-deleted “spanking” video.
O’Rourke won the House race despite the evidence put forth, and was sworn into congress in 2013, but he lost his bid for U.S. Senate, and the standard for public conduct and respect for the rule of law are even more rigorous in the race to be the most powerful man in the world.
His criminal record hurt in the 2018 elections, and will likely resurface in the race for president in 2020.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
