Did Ted Cruz mistakenly release a pro-Beto O’Rourke video?

Published

on

It’s rare that a political candidate effectively endorses their current opponent, but that appears to be what Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) just did.

Ahead of his Friday night debate with Democrat Rep. Beto O’Rourke, Cruz posted to Twitter a dynamic, amazing, compelling, wonderful video (below) of Beto O’Rourke talking about the killing of Botham Shem Jean, a Black man shot to death in his own apartment by a white police officer. Dallas police, in a move clearly made to try to discredit the victim, later revealed they had found marijuana in the apartment.

“How can it be, in this day and age, in this very year, in this community, that a young man, African-American, in his own apartment, is shot and killed by a police officer?” O’Rourke asks a crowd assembled in a church.

His words, empathy, and delivery are reminiscent of Barack Obama. Some have compared him to Robert F. Kennedy.

“And when we all want justice and the facts and the information to make an informed decision, what’s released to the public? That he had a small amount of marijuana in his kitchen,” O’Rourke continues.

“How can that be just in this country? How can we continue to lose the lives of unarmed black men in the United States of America at the hands of white police officers? That is not justice. That is not us. That can and must change.”

Ted Cruz posted the video clip, tweeting, “In Beto O’Rourke’s own words.”

Yes, those are O’Rourke’s own words. His own amazing, rousing, brilliant, insightful, and one-hundred percent righteous words.

Watch:

Is Cruz trying to lose the election?

It’s hard to imagine anyone watching this video and not thinking O’Rourke is absolutely correct.

Melania Trump was ripped on Monday for pushing her signature "Be Best" campaign against bullying while her husband, President Donald Trump, runs concentration camps for children along the southern border.

"Looking forward to collaborating with all of our #BeBest Ambassadors. Delighted to be working alongside so many people both inside and outside of government to better the lives of children everywhere!" Melania Trump tweeted Monday.

The response was some of the harshest since she wore an "I Don't Care" jacked to visit the border.

Donald Trump on the US-Mexico Border

On Sunday, Austin Savage and five of his friends huddled into an SUV and went to an El Paso Target, loading up on diapers, wipes, soaps and toys.

About $340 later, the group headed to a Border Patrol facility holding migrant children in nearby Clint with the goal of donating their goods. Savage said he and his friends had read an article from The New York Times detailing chaos, sickness and filth in the overcrowded facility, and they wanted to help.

But when they arrived, they found that the lobby was closed. The few Border Patrol agents — Savage said there were between eight and 10 of them — moving in and out of a parking facility ignored them.

Michael Flynn’s legal team is making bizarre moves — signaling he’s still hoping for a Trump pardon

Published

on

When disgraced former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn recently hired a new firebrand lawyer, Sidney Powell, it suggested he could be maneuvering to change his legal strategy.

And on Monday, new signs emerged that his legal team is looking to shake things up. Flynn had another status hearing on Monday before Judge Emmet Sullivan as he awaits sentencing for charges brought by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

In the hearing on Monday, Powell, who had been publicly critical of the Russia investigation before joining Flynn’s team, requested a security clearance to review documents in the case. This was a surprising move, because the government said that there was no classified information in the documents it had turned over to the defense.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
