    Probably Seth but doesn’t matter they will vote for him 41% is A LOT!
    Concept of loser, knows the guy is an a-hole but still voter for him.
    My school was private in Peru, the ones that did that were the losers, and there were not so many of those because we all knew already.
    I never liked that in school here, much less in real life with grown, what? You have personality? Aren’t you free? Peer pressure should not work as soon as you leave school

    Okay research this O’Rourke family criminal history...start with Pat Francis O’Rourke and his ties to the El Paso Drug Cartels, Melissa O’Rourke and her guilty plea to Tax evasion and money laundering, and Beto’s father-in-law William Sanders scams with the El Paso City development scams...Yup.. this is the true nature of the Democrat Party Presidential Candidates and the DNC...

    Its amazing all these trumpets would not accept anyone treating their wives or daughters with the type of disrespect dump does yet its okay if the president does it? I want a president who is better then me, smarter then me, more respectful then me. Reps want someone they can relate to or is similar to them, who hates like them and talks like them. Everyone should have higher standards for the president.

    If you would just deal with finding proof that the other news organizations are lying to the people. Then you can stop just calling me dumb every time I take a Fox fact that completely contradicts your claims. I don’t want to support this dude but you don’t give us much choice in the matter.
    You attack us personally, you mock our beliefs, and want to take away the 1 main tool we have that ensures governments don’t enslave us again.
    Do you want us on your side? Or do you just choose war?

    Robert Francis O'rourke. He has a criminal record for robbery and wrote a poem that lauded running down people while driving. Dems lie continually , you mocking Trump is a mere deflection from the fact that you are HYPOCRITES. He has been a huckster all his life. Always hyping everything he did or does. He has an agenda that is 85% correct. Dems have an agenda that is 85% incorrect.

  • LiveAndLetLivia
    LiveAndLetLivia 4 months ago

    Great segment! The writers on this show are killer. Well done. If Beto really wanted to help the United States he would be challenging John Cornyn for his Senate seat, not standing on tables like a doofus and saying neoliberal word salad like "we must have the audacity to dare for the future of imagination" or some sh!t in his ridiculous bid for President. Last week Cornyn tweeted a Mussolini quote by the way. It's imperative that we take the march of fascism and the mass brutality of immigrants very seriously, and Beto is being profoundly irresponsible in running for President when we need him in the Senate.
    Further: it's a popular talking point for Democrats to express concern that the left is "eating itself" and urge us to "unify" like Republicans under the "any blue" umbrella. That is understandable but leaning into it is actually a bad strategy and I'll tell you why:
    The Republican party is a small monolith compared to the left, which is vastly bigger and more diverse because according to the polls, issue by issue, independents and nonvoters are progressive.
    The Democrats will fall in line and vote for whoever the general election candidate is as usual, while -- once again -- it's the independents and nonvoters who will decide this.
    93-95 million didn't vote last time.
    Lamenting that we need to be unified is not necessary and in fact a misuse of our energy. What we need to do is work to include more independents and nonvoters into our coalition by appealing to them with progressive candidates.
    I'm glad to see that Warren, Bernie and others are stepping up to the plate with some of their proposals and we'll see what happens in the primaries. Beto is falling very short and we need him in the Senate.

      What's the "real media"? Fox News? Fox News, aka Faux News, aka GOP-TV, aka the conservative echo chamber, aka Trump State TV.

      Politifacts: "This scorecard shows the ratings for statements made on air by Fox, Fox News and Fox Business personalities and their pundit guests. Rulings do not include statements made on air by politicians or paid spokespeople.
      True17 (10%)
      Mostly True 20 (12%)
      Half True32 (19%)
      Mostly False36 (21%)
      False 50 (29%)
      Pants on Fire16 (9%)"

      Note that only 22% of Fox statements were true or mostly true.

      Ralph Peters quits Fox News, analyst says he is ashamed to work for ‘propaganda machine’

      Did you know that after 15 years Fox News was booted out of England because it was found to be a biased propaganda machine? Hannity and Tucker Carlson were singled out as prime examples.

      Fox News, the most effective and evil propaganda machine since Nazi Germany's propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels.

      Talk about "fake news". Fox News pedals an endless stream of lies, spin, deceptions, conspiracy theories, conservative talking points, and complete lack of journalistic integrity, and tries to get away with it by saying that Hannity, Tucker Carlson, etc, are not "journalists" but simply entertainers and opinion shows.

      Fox News is probably the biggest single factor in dividing America, and constantly instigates an "us versus" them emotional tactic that is usually found in the "good guys bad guys", “good guys versus evil villains” entertainment formula of pro wrestling. It’s formula is to “outrage you”, and it engenders real hatred. eg: Watch Cavuto responds to backlash to his Trump criticism

    How do you all - liberals have the nerve to even speak of Pres. Trump attacking Beto when your side attacks Pres. Trump all of the time. It has been horrible watching the left show their true faces and personalities. No sitting President, Democrat or Republican should ever have to experience what President Trump has experienced. There is a God in heaven that does see and judge righteously what goes on in this world.

    The Beast out of the Sea
    13 Then I saw a beast rising up out of the sea. It had seven heads and ten horns, with ten crowns on its horns. And written on each head were names that blasphemed God. 2 This beast looked like a leopard, but it had the feet of a bear and the mouth of a lion! And the dragon gave the beast his own power and throne and great authority.
    3 I saw that one of the heads of the beast seemed wounded beyond recovery-but the fatal wound was healed! The whole world marveled at this miracle and gave allegiance to the beast. 4 They worshiped the dragon for giving the beast such power, and they also worshiped the beast. “Who is as great as the beast?” they exclaimed. “Who is able to fight against him?”
    5 Then the beast was allowed to speak great blasphemies against God. And he was given authority to do whatever he wanted for forty-two months. 6 And he spoke terrible words of blasphemy against God, slandering his name and his dwelling-that is, those who dwell in heaven.[a] 7 And the beast was allowed to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And he was given authority to rule over every tribe and people and language and nation. 8 And all the people who belong to this world worshiped the beast. They are the ones whose names were not written in the Book of Life that belongs to the Lamb who was slaughtered before the world was made.[b]
    9 Anyone with ears to hear
    should listen and understand.
    10 Anyone who is destined for prison
    will be taken to prison.
    Anyone destined to die by the sword
    will die by the sword.
    This means that God’s holy people must endure persecution patiently and remain faithful.
    The Beast out of the Earth
    11 Then I saw another beast come up out of the earth. He had two horns like those of a lamb, but he spoke with the voice of a dragon. 12 He exercised all the authority of the first beast. And he required all the earth and its people to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. 13 He did astounding miracles, even making fire flash down to earth from the sky while everyone was watching. 14 And with all the miracles he was allowed to perform on behalf of the first beast, he deceived all the people who belong to this world. He ordered the people to make a great statue of the first beast, who was fatally wounded and then came back to life. 15 He was then permitted to give life to this statue so that it could speak. Then the statue of the beast commanded that anyone refusing to worship it must die.
    16 He required everyone-small and great, rich and poor, free and slave-to be given a mark on the right hand or on the forehead. 17 And no one could buy or sell anything without that mark, which was either the name of the beast or the number representing his name. 18 Wisdom is needed here. Let the one with understanding solve the meaning of the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man.[c] His number is 666.[d]

Is it only going to matter once it's a democrat against a republican? I sort of wanted the best democrat to be the democratic candidate. You know, like how Bernie would have won last time, but we didn't get the best democrat because of corruption, and then dems lost...

    Democrats should start putting their act together very quickly and find a real suitable/viable candidate to run for president. Having all these "candidates" out there may end up not being so good, especially if they start badmouthing each other in the primaries. These short clips from Beto do no bring much inspiration. He reminds me of an inexperienced teenager giving a speech at his high school graduation. I can understand, and expect, the less than perfect delivery from a teenager but from an adult with hopes of becoming president...
