At this point anyone with half a brain knows about George Soros and his grip on Leftist grassroots political movements. The former Nazi-errand boy’s money and influence have been connected to BlackLivesMatter, Antifa and the militant neo-feminist movement. Soros funds anti-fossil fuel activism in the United States while simultaneously profiting from off-shore drilling near Brazil. He's the epitome of globalist hypocrisy. He also strongly resembles Emperor Palpatine from Star Wars [but I'm sure that's just a coincidence].
With the invisible hand of his inflated bank account, George Soros tries to hide his leverage over Leftist politics by quietly donating to organizations like Moveon.Org, a group that's about as popular in my home state of Texas as a New York City brisket [because, let's face it, Yankees have no business making BBQ].
Of course, I'm saying all of this for a reason - MoveOn.Org is about to hit Texas.
In 2018 Ted Cruz, the most conservative man in the US Senate, is up for reelection. Being a frequent opponent to both the Democrats and the establishment Republicans in DC, Ted Cruz is no stranger to conflict. Now, in the wake of Doug Jones taking Jeff Sessions' old Senate seat for Alabama, George Soros wants to repeat what happened to Roy Moore. Soros wants to unseat Mr. Cruz more than ever before.
Enter Beto O'Rourke, a former punk rocker and Gen-X aged Democrat politician from El Paso, Texas [a city that's so far away from everything else in the Lone Star State that it might as well be in New Mexico]. The Soros-funded group MoveOn.Org announced last night via email that Beto is their officially endorsed candidate to try and take down Ted Cruz next year.
Beto is George Soros’ “rising star”.
But who the hell is Beto, anyway and what has he done to earn the Left's respect? And why does he have such a goofy name? I'll answer two of those three questions right now [but don't expect me to explain his name, his parents obviously hate him.... No offense to anyone named "Beto".]
Beto's resume includes time spent in a failed pop-punk band [kind of like Blink 182 or Green Day, but crappier]. And pop-punk isn't the only thing he's previously failed at - he's also a failed businessman who moved on to a rather embarrassing political career in his hometown of El Paso. The only reason why most Texans don’t know about what I’m about to tell you is because [like I said before] life in El Paso is a far cry away from everything else in our beautiful state. But Soros doesn't seem to realize how disconnected El Paso is from the other communities in Texas. In fact, Beto is so unpopular in his hometown of El Paso that it almost makes me wonder why MoveOn.org is endorsing this hack.
Back in 2006, early in his political career, Beto found himself with a big, giant, figurative-egg on his face when he was essentially accused of participating in sketchy shenanigans with a real estate development group that's local to El Paso [and also happens to be ran by one of his family members - can you say "nepotism"? You can? I know you could].
A little over a decade ago Beto had just been elected to El Paso City Council when suddenly people started noticing a strange relationship between him and some local businessmen. An El Paso Leftist-activist named Carmen Felix initiated a recall petition against Beto after learning about details of a peculiar downtown development project that seemed to have a connection to Councilman O’Rourke. The activist and many reasonable folks from El Paso were outraged to learn Beto was quietly supporting and leading efforts on the development project to line his own pockets at the expense of local El Pasoans.
Please allow me to break down what allegedly happened in the simplest terms: among his list of disgraceful big-government political positions, Beto supports a government policy called eminent domain [government seizure of private property] and many Texas residents [from both parties] are strongly opposed to this law. In case you're unaware, eminent domain is legalized theft. It's an action taken by the government to seize someone's property for the so-called good of the general public [as if taking someone's property was somehow good for the community]. Sometimes eminent domain laws are invoked to build highways, pipelines or even parking garages. Suffice to say, eminent domain laws have a history of being misused and abused by corrupt politicians. The problem with eminent domain is that very often the property being seized by the government was previously someone's house or place of business, and those people don't always want to hand over their homes to the State [would you?]. If you're a fan of individual rights and liberties, eminent domain is not your friend.
After the petition against Beto started to circulate, he did an about-face and publicly claimed to completely change his tone on the idea of seizing a law abiding citizen's property for a real estate development project. On the surface Beto acted like he wised up, but in reality the controversy continued.
In September of 2006 a group called the Land Grab Opponents of El Paso filed an ethics complaint against O'Rourke and the Paso del Norte Group, a company who was working with Beto on the development project. The projected reeked of corruption. It was revealed that O'Rourke's own company, Stanton Street Technology Group, was providing services to the Paso del Norte Group [where O'Rourke's father-in-law just so happened to hold a high ranking position]. His father-in-law, his own company and his political allies were all benefiting from this deal. In case you're not catching what I'm putting down here, that's a textbook case of cronyism wrapped up in a nepotism sandwich. Beto allegedly used his political influence as an elected official to try to cut a profit for his own company and another company headed by his wife's father. The people of El Paso didn't like this news and neither should you if you're considering the possibility of Beto being the new Junior Senator for Texas.
MoveOn.Org believes Beto has the qualities to appeal to real Texans. And what Texan wouldn't want to vote for a punk-rocking Democrat crony from El Paso who makes business deals to benefit his own personal interests?
But wait, there's more!
Beto spent a substantial amount of his early business career working in New York City. New York City?! What's more Texas than that?! Elitists like George Soros think they know what's best for Texas, but being surrounded by Democrats and New Yorkers doesn't exactly prepare one to understand the values we hold here in the fly over states. Now imagine this former New Yorker representing Texas on Capitol Hill. Are you starting to understand why this is problematic?
Much like Julian Castro, Wendy Davis and Bill White, the mainstream media and the coastal elitists are calling Beto a "rising star" in the Texas Democrat Party. In fact, this is how I know Beto O'Rourke will never beat Ted Cruz in his own state: what these East-Coast-West-Coast-hacks fail to realize is that whenever the mainstream media refers to a Texas Democrat as a "rising star" that's typically the last time anyone ever talks about or hears from that candidate in a positive manner for the rest of their career. If you're a Democrat from Texas, the last thing you want to be called is a "rising star" by national media outlets because that title is usually followed by decades of political-obscurity. Remember "rising star" Wendy Davis? She's currently walking those cool pink sneakers to the unemployment line. Hopefully she remembers to wear her filibuster-diaper! Or what about Julian Castro? He was a "rising star" too! Then he mishandled $520 billion dollars at the department of Housing & Urban Development. Yikes! That's a New-York-sized bureaucratic “mistake” if I've ever heard one. And now Castro's being forgotten faster than snap bracelets and JNCO Jeans [remember JNCO Jeans? No? Me neither]. And don't forget ol' Chris Bell [you already have], the "Rising star" who was supposed to beat Rick Perry in the 2006 Texas gubernatorial election. Then he lost by double digits. Now, in 2017, Chris Bell is so unrecognizable he might as well apply for a job as an agent at the CIA.
So while George-Soros-funded groups like MoveOn.org begin to encourage millions of liberals all over America to throw money at Beta O'Rourke, just remember: their association with him will do more damage than all the money in his Super PAC is capable of repairing. No self-respecting Texan will ever follow the lead of a former Nazi-errand boy when they walk into a voting booth. Not even a liberal crony hack from Austin. Beto might raise millions of dollars from people outside of Texas, but millions of dollars can't buy votes in the Lone Star State [this isn't Chicago, after all]. People in Texas are never going to take orders from a globalist one-percenter. This goes beyond party lines. We're Texas - we just don't listen to instructions from people who send orders via email from their New York City based crystal palaces in the sky. That sorta thing rubs our briskets the wrong way.
George Soros doesn't live in Texas. He doesn't even visit this place. His homes are in places like London, Budapest and New York City. Notably, Texans aren’t trying to stick their nose in Budapest's business, so why are wealthy one-percenters from Budapest trying to mess with us? Maybe they haven't heard: you never mess with Texas, Soros.
Mexico once tried to mess with Texas and it didn't end well.
Just ask General Santa Ana.
