Robert Francis ‘Beto’ O’Rourke: Americans Should “Sacrifice” At “Scale” of WW2

Published

on

In a speech in Charlottesville, Virginia on April 16, 2019, Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke stood behind Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal and called for Americans to be prepared to make great sacrifices.

Just like during WW2.

O’Rourke said to the crowd of supporters, “One of the reasons I like Representative Ocasio-Cortez’s proposed Green New Deal is that it calls to mind another time in this country’s past when we faced an existential challenge. In that case, it was to our way of life to the Western democracies, to our allies in Europe, to our fellow Americans.”

The former Congressman continued, “In the midst of the Great Depression, this country was willing to sacrifice men and women all over the United States to make sure that we defeated Germany, and we won that war. And for the following 75 years that we made this world safe for democracy. The Green New Deal calls that sacrifice and service in scale, scale of commitment when it talks about the challenges that we face today.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal has made waves since it was rolled out in February. Now it appears to be embraced by the entire Democratic Party.

Newsweek reports that Ocasio-Cortez has “compared the Green New Deal to the national emergency facing the United States during World War II.”

Ocasio-Cortez herself said, “We’ve been here before. We’ve been here before with the Great Depression. We’ve been here before with World War II, even the Cold War.”

With Bernie Sanders hiring a known apologist of Venezuelan socialism in David Sirota as  his speechwriter, Pete Buttigieg recently calling out capitalism’s supposed failures, and now the Green New Deal being embraced by Beto O’Rourke, the Democratic Party is officially going hard Left.

And from the looks of it, there’s no turning back.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
