Abandon ship! Beto’s top aides are LEAVING his bumbling campaign already!

Well, it sure was fun making fun of the Democratic party’s favorite fake Mexican, Beto O’Rourke, but it looks like our time is coming to an end very soon.

Or at least, his aides certainly think so:

Two aides to former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) have reportedly departed his 2020 presidential campaign, an O’Rourke spokesperson told BuzzFeed News on Saturday.

Becky Bond, a top adviser to O’Rourke, and her deputy, Zack Malitz, have both left the campaign. The two worked on O’Rourke’s competitive 2018 Texas Senate bid against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas).

Chris Evans, a spokesman for O’Rourke, said Bond and Malitz were staffers on a “temporary” basis and didn’t respond to questions about the reasons they left the campaign, BuzzFeed News reported.

Bond told BuzzFeed News in a statement that it was “time for us to move on to other challenges.”

Other challenges, like a campaign that might have a snowball’s chance in hell of being successful?

“Launching a presidential campaign without a big staff or even a campaign manager was no easy feat and it took everyone pitching in. We’re proud to have been part of the team of deeply dedicated staff and volunteers who nearly pulled off a historic upset in the 2018 Texas Senate race and broke records launching Beto’s campaign for the presidency,” Bond added.

Also they saw his support all swing to booty-judge and abandon Señor Pendejo. Pobrecito!!



Well that’s it for Sunday, we hope you had a great and blessed Easter!!

As they should be. Unfortunately most of the GOP senators could care less as long as their big donors are satisfied. Mitch stated at a campaign event his next big push is raising the smoking age to 21 so border crisis be damned.

Begs the question of why the House Dems are not down there as well. Of course we know the reason they aren’t down there. They don’t want to know that there’s a very real and dire situation down there. This is one of many facts that ruin their fairytale narrative because to the Dems “The Narrative” IS their god. They don’t care about these poor children anymore than they cared about slave children (currently and back in the day) and the unborn. All children are is a means to an end in their demonic worship of “The Narrative”.

Story over at the Daily Wire about the NYT finally acknowledging that the Steele Dossier wasn’t really factual. Duh? Took them long enough.

https://www.dailywire.com/news/46240/nyt-finally-acknowledges-steele-dossier-might-not-ashe-schow

Think of the amount of damage done by that Dossier and the gullible media and masses who found it to be believable. They started off with the over-the-top salacious urinating prostitutes. Remember when there were #nevertrumper’s here in the comments crowing about how it was over for Trump? I do.

I remember having long arguments back and forth with the gullible TDSers who were insistent that parts of the Dossier were “factual” and had been “proven” or that the Dossier had a lot of “credible allegations”. It was always bs leftist propaganda.

I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating. Those people are indistinguishable from Democrats, they’ve gotten so good at following the leftist marching orders.

They were so sure that Trump was guilty of being a Putin puppet but now that we know he wasn’t, they’ve moved on to the obstruction red herring – just like good little Democrats.

Sadly, it’s not just that person who was merely the face of intellectual dishonesty and logical failure. It’s all the people who were on that spectrum of “the Dossier is credible” and even the legion of half-lurkers who were upvoting that nonsense. The enablers and supporters are almost bad as the ones who commented their TDS drivel.

I don’t like naming names of people not here, but there was one who was constantly accusing us of being confused conspiracy theorists when we were the ones who actually had a clue about what was going on. No apologies will be forthcoming from that one, I’m sure.

They put a sign in their yard and anytime I went over there I told them someone vandalized their house with a Beto sign trying to make it look like idiots lived there.

I was only a matter of time before O’Rourke’s campaign staff began to realize that they hooked their wagons to a no win situation. O’Rourke’s dead end campaign imploded the moment he made his first campaign speech. You know it’s pretty bad when he holds a rally and ends up getting grilled and called on the carpet by his supporters to answer for his contradicting statements. His followers have come to realize that O’Rourke is completely devoid of substance and credibility. Every time he opens his stupid mouth he exposes himself as being a wholly dishonest, shallow hypocrite. Beto speaks into the same echo chamber that every other democratic candidate speaks into.

“proud to have been part of the team of deeply dedicated staff and volunteers who nearly pulled off a historic upset in the 2018 Texas Senate race”…..WHAT HISTORIC UPSET?! HE LOST!!! And that was despite the DNC working hard to cheat Texans out of a fair election. This modern-day ballot box stuffing must change FAST.

How pathetic is it when demonrats claim they almost did something…just more “everyone gets a trophy” mentality. It helps almost do something when you have hundreds of millions of dollars chucked at you from outside of your home state so you can claim to be “the new obama-like” freak of the day – demonrats will just vote for anyone with a “D” after their name, EVEN if they are a loser!!!

O’Rourke’s campaign was also a glaring example of the tremendous amount of nation wide election rigging that was going on leading up to the mid term elections. There is no way that the democrats should have taken the House because there was a palpable red tsunami taking over the country.

I want a sweeping federal investigation into the political machinations of every democrat that ran for office during the 2018 mid term elections.

Michelle Malkin posting on The Daily Wire about Chase Bank dumping conservatives and then lying about it:

On Tuesday, investigative journalist James O’Keefe and his Project Veritas team released a disturbing new video on the runaround that Chase officials gave Texas conservative entrepreneur Enrique Tarrio about his canceled account. Big business may very well be enabling America’s very own version of the Chinese social credit system in which political dissent is flagged, shunned, punished and eradicated.
