Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke Blames President Trump for El Paso Shooting

Published

on

Former Congressman and 2020 presidential candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke said on Saturday, August 3, 2019 that President Trump is partially responsible for the Walmart massacre in El Paso, Texas where 20 people were killed.

When asked by news reporters if Trump had any responsibility in this incident, O’Rourke responded in the affirmative.

“Yes. We’ve had a rise in hate crimes every single one of the last three years, during an administration where you have a president who has called Mexicans rapists and criminals”, O’Rourke said on Saturday evening.

The former congressman added, “He is a racist, and he stokes racism in this country. It does not just offend our sensibilities; it fundamentally changes the character of this country, and it leads to violence.”

This statement came after politicians from both sides of the aisle, even Trump himself, expressed their condolences after this atrocity.

Texas law enforcement officials confirmed that the suspect, a 21-year-old male from the Dallas area, was the author of a polemical manifesto that appeared on the 8chan website before the attack took place.

George P. Bush, Texas’ Land Commissioner, condemned the shooting as an act of “white terrorism” in a statement right after O’Rourke made his remarks.

BLP reported on O’Rourke’s desire to ban AR-15s, which he will most certainly double down on in the wake of this shooting.

In the midst of this uproar, many media outlets have downplayed the role that veteran Glen Oakley played in saving various children during this shooting.

Oakley took advantage of the concealed carry license that Texas law allows him to possess. He uses this to help shelter children that were running away from the shooting scene.

BLP will stay tuned to further developments in this situation.

The Attorney General on His Way Out?: Trump Mulls Firing Bill Barr, Advisers Trying to Dissuade Him

Trump is unhappy about more than just Barr’s recent voter fraud comments.

Published

President Donald Trump is considering firing Attorney General William Barr, with the Washington Post reporting Wednesday evening that Trump “remained livid” at him.

On Tuesday Barr said that the Justice Department did not find evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

An unnamed senior administration official told the Post that although Trump is upset about Barr’s comments, he’s also unhappy with Barr about other matters, such as his previous lack of action on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and his handling of John Durham.

The president is pressuring Barr to release the “Durham report,” which could implicate officials in using the investigation to target Trump for political reasons. Trump also sees Barr’s secret appointment of Durham to DOJ special counsel as a “stall tactic.”

AG Barr Reveals John Durham Was Appointed Special Counsel Weeks Before 2020 Election

In the wake of Election Day Attorney General Barr authorized federal prosecutors to “investigate substantial allegations” of voter fraud. But in his comments Tuesday, Barr claimed that “most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”

“They are not systemic allegations,” said Barr.

Trump may want to fire Barr, but several advisers are trying to persuade him not to, according to the unnamed senior official.

Either way, it’s tough to see how Barr remains attorney general for much longer. If Joe Biden pulls off the steal and gets inaugurated, he will certainly replace Barr with his own AG. And if Trump hangs on for his second and final term, he may very well want to clean house and start afresh.
