In the “flew under the radar” category of the 2018 midterm election cycle is the fact that Democrat U.S. Senate candidate Robert Francis ‘Beto’ O’Rourke has a billionaire father-in-law.
“Young Beto O’Rourke casts himself as the ‘anti-Trump’. But his father-in-law, it turns out, is a billionaire property developer with a contentious relationship with non-white residents — not unlike the President. Beto’s more the proto-Jared Kushner,” said the Spectator.
Indeed, O’Rourke has billed himself as something of a grassroots-built populist. He brags about going to high school in El Paso, Texas, though he only did one year there before transferring to one of the most expensive boarding schools in America. He speaks Spanish, and gave himself a Latino nickname in order to better relate with the Hispanic constituency in Texas. But the fraud is much deeper than that.
“The New York Times today revealed the highly interesting news that friend-of-the-little-guy Beto married well,” Spectator said. “Very well. His wife is not only the daughter of William D. Sanders, aka the Warren Buffet of real estate, Cockburn can reveal she is the only daughter. Sanders’s portfolio is valued at about $20 billion.”
The leftwing media, understanding that “billionaire heir” was not the image O’Rourke was looking for, predictably ran cover for him.
According to Spectator:
A Yahoo profile of O’Rourke described how he ‘married Amy Sanders, a charter school administrator,’ and served on the City Council ‘championing downtown redevelopment.’ But the reporter didn’t bother to look into who Sanders’s father was.
Neither did this Guardian piece.
Or this Washington Post one.
Nor this one in Vanity Fair.
TIME magazine were agog as the congressman cooed, ‘I just want to be as raw and direct and real as I can — and it seems to be working.’
Naturally, O’Rourke echoes the typical leftist talking points on taxing the wealthy.
“Beto believes we need an economy that works for everyone. That means achieving a tax code that is written for working people and families, not just corporations and the wealthiest Americans,” his campaign site says.
Sounds like bad news for his father-in-law.
TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District
It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”
Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.
Her lawlessness, ignorance and corruption have gone on for too long!
— DeAnna for Congress🇺🇸vs Nancy (@DeAnna4Congress) February 6, 2020
The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at PelosiForPrison.co, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.
Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”
“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”
This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
