AZ Gun Store Owner Responds to Beto’s ‘Hell Yes’ by Offering ‘Beto Specials’ – and Sells out of AR-15s, AK-47s

Beto O’Rourke’s controversial plan to take away certain types of guns should he become elected president has turned out to be as motivating -if not more so – for gun owners than President Barack Obama’s anti-gun stances.

At last week’s Democratic debate, O’Rourke said “Hell yes” in response to ABC News debate moderator David Muir’s question about whether or not he was going to take away people’s guns:

MUIR: Some of the stage have suggested a voluntary buy-back for guns in this country. You have gone further. You said, quote, “Americans who own AR-15s and AK-47s will have to sell them to the government, all of them. You know that critics call this confiscation. Are you proposing taking away their guns and how would this work?

BETO O’ROURKE: I am, if it’s a weapon that was designed to kill people on a battlefield. If the high impact, high velocity, when it hits your body, shreds everything inside of your body because it was designed to do that so you would bleed to death on a battlefield and not be able to get up and kill one of our soldiers. When we see that being used against children and in Odessa, I met the mother of a 15-year-old girl who was shot by an AR-15 and that mother watched her bleed to death over the course of an hour because so many other people were shot by that AR-15 in Odessa, there weren’t enough ambulances to get to them in time. Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47. We’re not going to allow it to be used against a fellow American anymore.

In response to Beto’s declaration, one gun store owner in Arizona decided to offer a ‘Beto Special’ on AR-15s and AK-47s – and the response was overwhelming:

When O’Rourke made the claim during Thursday night’s Democrat presidential candidate debate, Alpha Dog Firearms Owner Matt Boggs was outraged, he says in an interview with The HolloNet:

“I saw the comments that he made, and I was kinda like, ‘You know what: the Hell with this guy.’”

Boggs said O’Rourke’s made [him] determined to sell more guns – even if it meant losing money on them. So, the next morning he announced his “Beto Specials” on AR15 and AK47 rifles on his store’s Facebook page:

That evening, the store announced that they had sold out in less than four hours:

UPDATE: SOLD OUT. More deals will be on the website soon. Y’all broke our internet today!!!

Our $349.99 AR deal sold out in less than 4 hours. We’re trying to process the orders and work on getting more special deals for our good friend gun grabber Beto

As Beto gets louder on this issue, look for more gun specials from gun store owners, and a higher demand for the types of weapons he wants to confiscate. As we learned during the Obama administration, tacking to the far left on gun control usually means increased sales at gun stores. These types of threats typically have a galvanizing effect on gun owners and spurs them them to stock up.

This is most certainly not what Beto O’Rourke intended when he announced his gun confiscation policy, but that is what happens when you’re someone like Beto who doesn’t think your policies through.

Snopes.com Lies and Creates Fake News About the Felicity Huffman School Bribery Case

Westlake Legal Group felicity-huffman-620x317 Snopes.com Lies and Creates Fake News About the Felicity Huffman School Bribery Case tanya mcdowell Snopes.com Snopes Politics Media Front Page Stories Felicity Huffman Featured Story fake news douchebaggery democrats crime Connecticut College Cheating Scandal California Allow Media Exception

FILE – In this Jan. 16, 2006 file photo, Felicity Huffman wears a Marchesa gown at the 63rd Annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, Calif. The luxe womenswear brand Marchesa may not survive the horrors of Harvey Weinstein, the estranged husband of co-founder Georgina Chapman. The company on Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2018, canceled its scheduled Feb. 14 show at New York Fashion Week after a decade of presenting collections there. And there’s been a Marchesa blackout on red carpets as awards season winds down. (AP Photo/Kevork Djansezian, File)

On Friday, has-been actress Felicity Huffman was sentenced to two weeks in federal prison. Her crime, such as it was, was to donate some $15K to a “charitable foundation” (astonishingly the foundation did not have Clinton in the name). The “donation” actually paid for a ringer to take the SAT on behalf of Huffman’s daughter to enable her to get into an selective college. And Huffman pocketed a tax write off. I was not one of the ones cheering about this. My first thought was “great, this means that real crime has been eradicated and now we’re down to using federal law enforcement for virtue signaling.” Just the exposure, by itself, destroyed Huffman’s relationship with her kids, probably prevented the daughter she tried to help from ever getting into any real college and shamed her for life by her name being connected to the scandal. Huffman should have been hit by a civil IRS lien for the 15K and that should have been it. I feel this way about everyone involved in this. The parents are shamed, the kids are shamed even among their friends, they will carry this scarlet letter forever, the coaches are out of work forever, the scammers have been exposed. That is justice. But that is not the society which we have built.

I was raised in a fairly down-in-the-heels section of Virginia. It was a place where the social class structure was pretty damned rigid and it was accepted that those “with” would always stick together to the disadvantage of those “without.” As I’ve recounted several times, my options upon finishing high school were chopping tobacco, working in a furniture mill, or working in a textile factory…or getting the hell out of Dodge. Much to my surprise other supposedly smart folks were shocked to learn that wealthy people and connected people actually used connections and broke rules to help their kids get a leg up. They labored under the illusion that Chelsea Clinton and her ilk were some kind of virtuosos who just stumbled into their 6-figure jobs fresh out of an elite college because they were just so damned smart and talented. These are the people who were shocked and offended by this college scandal. Bottom line, I don’t have the time and energy to care what a handful of rich people to to advance their whelps into the upper classes. This has no impact on me or mine. This is not who we are.

But the great thing about America is that there is virtually no social ill that cannot somehow be contorted enough to become an example of racism.

If everything it racism then this is definitely your story: A wealthy white woman gets two-weeks for her role in a cheating scandal and a poor black woman gets 5 years for enrolling her kid in a different school district. And if you are sufficiently woke, this is freakin catnip.

Then Snopes got into the act. Snopes, if you aren’t familiar with their work, is the highly woke fact checking website that is currently engaged in some kind of vendetta with the satire website Babylon Bee. This is their rating.

Westlake Legal Group snopes-mcdowell-620x461 Snopes.com Lies and Creates Fake News About the Felicity Huffman School Bribery Case tanya mcdowell Snopes.com Snopes Politics Media Front Page Stories Felicity Huffman Featured Story fake news douchebaggery democrats crime Connecticut College Cheating Scandal California Allow Media Exception

The problem is that this is not merely false, it is an outright lie.

Here are the facts.

McDowell, who claimed she was homeless, was arrested for larceny after she signed an affidavit attesting to her residency at a different address to enroll her kid in a different school district. Reading between the lines here, this sounds like McDowell was a pain in the butt to the public housing development where she lived and they used the fraudulent affidavit as a reason to evict her (or ban her from the premises because the story is convoluted). The cops just became the pivot man in this circle jerk.

The police investigation into the residency began in January after Norwalk Housing Authority attorney Donna Lattarulo filed a complaint alleging McDowell registered her son at Brookside, but actually lived in an apartment on Priscilla Street in Bridgeport.

As part of the evidence presented in the complaint, police received an affidavit of residency signed by McDowell and dated last September attesting that she lived in the Roodner Court public housing complex on Ely Ave.

Before this charge was acted on, other things happened.

Several weeks later, she was arrested for selling drugs to Norwalk undercover officers on five occasions in Norwalk and Bridgeport.

When she was picked up on the drug charges, police found her in front of Brookside Elementary School holding 30 small bags of marijuana and 23 small bags of crack cocaine, prosecutor Tiffany Lockshier said during her sentencing hearing.

In Bridgeport, McDowell pleaded guilty earlier this month to two counts of sale of narcotics to undercover officers in Bridgeport and when she is sentenced on March 27, faces up to five years in jail for those convictions.

Selling narcotics in front of an elementary school. Selling narcotics in front of an elementary school. Selling narcotics in front of an elementary school. Selling narcotics in front of an elementary school. I’ll say it again. Selling narcotics in front of an elementary school.

When she appeared in court she pleaded guilty to the drug charges and entered an Alford plea to the larceny charge. The judge made it clear that he was sentencing her based on the drug deal alone:

That case drew protests by residents and civil rights groups who claimed McDowell was being persecuted for her attempt to get a better education for her son.

[Superior Court Judge Frank] Iannotti retorted Tuesday that the Norwalk case had nothing to do with why McDowell was before him.

“This case is about the convictions for the sale of narcotics to an undercover police officer,” the judge said. “I think you understand that because that is really the essence of what has gotten you into the predicament you find yourself today.”

On the two counts of sale of narcotics, the judge then sentenced her to 12 years, suspended after she serves five years and followed by five years probation. The sentence is to run concurrently with a five-year sentence she received in the Norwalk case.

“When you are released, go back to doing an honest living and become a role model for your son,” the judge added.

The Snopes fact check is simply a lie. Period. Full stop. Felicity Huffman got two weeks in prison for cheating to get her kid into a good school. McDowell got five years for selling narcotics in a school zone. These are not the same thing. They aren’t even in the same universe of criminal acts.

Sad to say, this is not unusual behavior for Snopes. One hopes this noxious bunch of self-righteous, if deeply dishonest, twits gets put out of business. And soon. Because they are the real problem with #FakeNews on the internet.

Meet Andrew McCabe’s Laughable “Character Witnesses”

If you’ve been keeping up with the latest news on Andrew McCabe, you know that he’s now facing prosecution for “lacking candor” (lying) to the FBI. In what was the first shoe to drop within the Comey cabal, McCabe’s last minute appeal to not have the law applied to him failed. Keep in mind, lying to the FBI is the same law he, Comey, and Mueller relentlessly used to bludgeon others into submission.

But these people feel like they are part of a special class, and who could blame them? For as long as they’ve been in government, they’ve gotten to play by different rules. Naturally, that means the swamp is going to try to circle the wagons and McCabe has some “character witnesses” he’d like you to meet.

NEW: If Andrew McCabe ultimately does face charges, he’ll have some big names lined up as character witnesses. Over a dozen high-ranking ex-officials have committed to defending him, including Eric Holder, John Brennan, James Clapper and Susan Rice. https://t.co/i6j2G8ctfK

— Natasha Bertrand (@NatashaBertrand) September 16, 2019

This per Politico.

A cavalcade of Obama-era national security leaders have committed to testify on behalf of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe should he face trial over allegations that he misled officials about leaks to the media.

The lineup, detailed in a legal analysis from McCabe’s legal team, the substance of which was provided to the Justice Department, includes a string of former senior officials.

Here’s a good, concise response to this madness.

There is no doubt McCabe broke the law. The Inspector General found ample evidence he lied to investigators in his dealings with leaks to the press. In fact, his story was in direct contradiction to James Comey, which means Comey may be forced to testify against him to avoid charges himself.

Despite the clearness of the situation, these Obama officials are ready to rally around him. Doesn’t that tell us all we need to know about their corruption? That not even a non-partisan IG report from an Obama appointee (IG Horowitz) is enough for them to abandon someone like McCabe? Opposing Trump, even if one is a criminal, covers all sins.

Honestly, I’m thinking these four vouching for McCabe in court only makes things worse for him. They are a group of proven liars. Prosecutors would have a field day with them.

Writers of NYT’s Hit Piece On Kavanaugh: They Included Exculpatory Information, Editors Removed It

Westlake Legal Group Kavanaugh-4 Writers of NYT’s Hit Piece On Kavanaugh: They Included Exculpatory Information, Editors Removed It Robin Pogrebin New York Times correction Mainstream Media Liberal Elitism Lawrence O'Donnell Kate Kelly Justice Brett Kavanaugh Front Page Stories Featured Story fake news donald trump democrats corruption Chuck Ross Allow Media Exception Abuse of Power 2020

New York Times reporters and authors of the new book entitled “The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation,” Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, appeared on Lawrence O’Donnell’s show, MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” last night to address the media storm sparked by their latest hit piece on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Considering O’Donnell himself was recently exposed for reporting fake news, the women certainly chose a sympathetic venue.

For anyone who may have missed this story, Pogrebin and Kelly revived the now debunked story that Kavanaugh, as an undergraduate student at Yale, had exposed himself to a freshman girl at a wild college party. They alleged that this incident had been corroborated. However, the woman, now 53, has no recollection of this episode and refuses to be interviewed. Pogrebin and Kelly wrote:

We also uncovered a previously unreported story about Mr. Kavanaugh in his freshman year that echoes Ms. Ramirez’s allegation. A classmate, Max Stier, saw Mr. Kavanaugh with his pants down at a different drunken dorm party, where friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student.

Forced to set the record straight, The New York Times issued a correction:

An earlier version of this article, which was adapted from a forthcoming book, did not include one element of the book’s account regarding an assertion by a Yale classmate that friends of Brett Kavanaugh pushed his penis into the hand of a female student at a drunken dorm party. The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident. That information has been added to the article.

Pogrebin and Kelly claim that this exculpatory information was included in their original draft, and “may have been removed from the original draft in the editing process.” The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross provided a clip from the program which aired last night. Ross writes, “Plot thickens. Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly claim that the qualifier about the other alleged Kavanaugh accuser not remembering an incident at Yale was included in the initial NYT draft but removed.”

Here are their remarks (emphasis mine):

O’Donnell: In your draft of the article, did it include those words that have since been added to the article?

Pogrebin and Kelly: It did.

O’Donnell: So somewhere in the editing process, those words were trimmed.

Pogrebin: Yeah, I think what happened actually was that, we have her name, and the Times doesn’t usually include the name of the victim. So, I think, in this case, the editors felt it was better to remove it and in removing her name, they removed the other reference to the fact that she didn’t remember it.

O’Donnell: So, in your draft for the Times, you used basically the exact words that are in the book, that deliberately left off the name, because that passage begins with the name and so, in their removal of the name, they ended up removing (inaudible). (He is abruptly cut off by Pogrebin.)

Pogrebin: The whole sentence. So I think it was just sort of an editing, you know, done in the haste in the editing process.

O’Donnell: Were you involved in the decision to amend this and do the correction – the addition online to the piece?

Pogrebin: We discussed it. We felt like there was so much heat, there’s so much – everyone has been seizing on various aspects of this that we certainly didn’t want it to be an issue anymore and we certainly never intended to mislead in any way. We wanted to give as full of a story as possible.

It’s pretty hard to buy this story. It’s impossible to know if the writers excluded the crucial information in their original draft or if they had included it and the editors removed it. But, either way, the omission of the exculpatory evidence from this story was intentional. Their goal is to inflict maximum damage on Justice Kavanaugh so that, if he ever does “take a scalpel” to Roe vs. Wade, they can use this story to discredit him.

The Democrats have been especially brutal in their coverage of the President lately. Their reporting is always negative, but recently, it seems to have become more savage than ever.

Here are several examples. Last week, CNN reported that a spy had to be extracted from Russia because Trump had been reckless with highly classified information. This news was proven false. The CIA took the unusual step of setting the record straight. Lawrence O’Donnell reported the fake news that Trump’s Deutsche Bank loans had been cosigned by Russian oligarchs, a fake story he was forced to apologize for. Based upon an irresponsible editorial in the Washington Post last week, Rachel Maddow reported that Trump is slow walking $250 million in aid to Ukraine until they agree to help him win the 2020 election by damaging Joe Biden’s campaign. House Democrats are reviving their “impeachment inquiry” that’s not really an impeachment inquiry, but an effort to obtain the grand jury information from the Mueller report. And now, the media is trying to resurrect their bogus and outrageous allegations against Justice Kavanaugh.

This avalanche of fake news smacks of desperation and it makes me wonder. Are they trying to get ahead of the release of the DOJ IG report on alleged FISA abuse, which is expected to be damning?

Women’s March Fires Anti-Semites, Immediately Hires More Anti-Semites

Westlake Legal Group linda-sarsour-620x414 Women’s March Fires Anti-Semites, Immediately Hires More Anti-Semites Women's March Tamika Mallory racists Politics New Anti-Semites media bias Louis Farrakhan Linda Sarsour Israel Hired Front Page Stories Front Page fired Featured Story democrats board members

It’s almost like the organization itself has issues and their connections to anti-Semitism haven’t just been mistakes?

As my colleague Brandon Morse shared earlier today, the Women’s March, famous for their delusional hatred of Trump and vaginal hats, finally cut ties with Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory (among others). The former board members had carried with them a long history of anti-Semitism and support for radical ideologies. Sarsour is of course a “Palestinian activist,” which means she rails against Jews and shills for Hamas. Mallory’s ties centered on Louis Farrakhan, where as recently as this year she refused to condemn his vile, racist rhetoric.

So what’s the Women’s March do after kicking out a group of women famous for their anti-Semitism? Hire more anti-Semites of course.

Bonus points for supporting Hamas I guess.

And just to be safe, they also brought on Sarsour ally Samia Assed, who’s shilled for Palestinian terrorists and doesn’t think Israel has a right to exist.

Oh, but it doesn’t stop there. The brilliant hires just kept on coming.

Apparently being a rabid anti-Semite and a fan of Louis Farahkan is a prerequisite for being on the board of the Women’s March. Clearly, they weren’t serious about reforming their dumpster fire of a movement. The best thing that could happen is for it shut down completely. The country is a better place given their loss of influence over the last few years.

Meanwhile, you won’t hear a peep about any of this in the major press despite the fact that they ran non-stop live coverage anytime there was a march by these people in the past. Imagine if a tea party group brought on a bunch of open white supremacists. You think CNN would mention it? You bet they would.

It’s A Miracle: Ilhan Omar Has A New Jobs Plan That Will Pay For Itself!

Rp. Ilhan Omar has co-sponsored a bill called the Federal Jobs Guarantee Development Act with Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-NJ) which, according to the ladies, will provide a job with a living wage and benefits to “anyone who wants one.” Sen Cory Booker is the Senate champion of the bill.

The Federal Jobs Guarantee Development Act  would guarantee that adults in participating communities who want to work can do so, in a job that pays a living wage and provides benefits like health insurance, paid sick leave, and paid family leave. When it was originally introduced in 2018, this was the first federal jobs guarantee legislation ever to be introduced in Congress.

That’s ambitious,” CNN host Erin Burnett told Omar when asking her about the legislation. “It would cost a lot of money.” (It’s estimated, according to Grabien founder Tom Elliot, to eventually cost $543 billion per year.)

How, Burnett wonders, does she plan on paying for it?

“Ultimately when these jobs are created and people are place in these jobs, it will pay for itself,” the totally serious member of Congress responded. Watch the full exchange at the twitter link above.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., questions FBI Assistant Director of the Counterterrorism Division Michael McGarrity, during a House Oversight and Reform Civil Rights and Civil Liberties subcommittee hearing, Tuesday, June 4, 2019, on Capitol Hill in Washington. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin)

In the immediate aftermath of the “report” from the New York Times over the weekend about an old-turned-new sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, a number of high-profile Democratic politicians and candidates for president weighed in and demanded his impeachment.

This in spite of the fact that the correction the paper issued hours after they were first alerted to it by conservative new media noted that the alleged victim does not even recall the alleged incident.

This is also in spite of the fact that the person who made the allegation originally is a Clinton-era liberal lawyer who has a vested interest in destroying Kavanaugh (which naturally calls into question the lawyer’s motivations):

We won’t even dwell on the fact that it was a liberal lawyer—one who happened to have been pitted against Kavanaugh during the Bill Clinton impeachment hearings—who opportunistically claims to have recalled this 35-year-old incident and reported it to the FBI.

As we all know, facts don’t care about your feelings, but Democrats don’t care about the facts. So the beat rolled on well into Monday with more Democrats lining up to board the “Impeach Kavanaugh” train, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY).

Apparently AOC didn’t want to waste the opportunity to insert herself into the debate, and she did so by posting a video clip of her during her 2018 campaign trashing highly educated “rich” men like Kavanaugh who she claimed “believed” they could get away with sexual assault.

While it’s not odd for Ocasio-Cortez to go the narcissistic route by making herself a focal point of any debate, what was odd about her tweets this morning about Kavanaugh is that she initially deleted the first one:

11 minutes after jtLOL noted she had deleted her original tweet, AOC reposted an identical one:

She followed up with another one from that same speech, because AOC has rarely seen a video of herself that she didn’t like.

But why did she delete her first tweet initially? This explanation from Free Beacon’s Alex Griswold is the only one that makes sense:

Yep. Might as well roll with it. Gotta get those RTSs, likes, and all the media attention that goes along with them.

In any event, no matter the reason for deleting and reposting, Ocasio-Cortez got dunked in the comments:

I want to believe that. I really do.

The BBC Releases a Lesson Plan for 9-Year-Olds: There Are More Than 100 Genders. Disagree and Go to Jail

Westlake Legal Group sisters-931151_1280-620x413 The BBC Releases a Lesson Plan for 9-Year-Olds: There Are More Than 100 Genders. Disagree and Go to Jail Uncategorized transgender The Sexes Sexuality sexual identity Public Education LGBT innocence Government Gender Issues gender identity Front Page Stories Featured Story Culture children BBC Allow Media Exception

 

 

Okay, boys and girls. And goys. and birls. And…a whole buncha stuff.

Here’s some news.

The BBC has released a collection of educational videos for tykes between 9 and 12 years old. As per the instructionals, there are not 2, not 3 not 10, but more than 100 “gender identities.”

Holy Toledo.

That’s a whole lot of variations on the penis and vagina; how could anyone keep up? I can’t even remember the Waffle House’s options for hash browns.

If you’re asking similar questions, you’re just slow: According to the videos, folks who aren’t adjusted to the 100+ options “just don’t know any better yet.”

Furthermore, those dinosaurs — you dinosaurs — could go to jail.

In one installment titled “Understanding Sexual and Gender Identities,” kids are informed that gender is whatever “you are inside.”

And off we go:

“There are so many gender identities. So we know we’ve got male and female, but there are over 100 — if not more — gender identities now.

“You’ve got some people who might call themselves gender queer,” the series pointes out, “who are just like, ‘I don’t really want to be anything in particular; I’m just going to be me.’”

The Daily Wire describes other content:

The video includes Leo Lardie, a transgender activist born female but who now identifies as male, who tells the children about her transition — including some talk about her own genitalia. She also tells the children that the only way to happiness for her was to be “true about who I was, and let other people in on this.”

Elsewhere in the series, called “The Big Talk,” a teacher tells children that they can be jailed if they are found to be “disrespecting or being hateful to people because of a difference that person perceives.”

One thing that’s cool about gender is that you don’t even have to be one of the 100+ choices. As the program explains, if you prefer — just like at Burger King — you can get the combo deal:

“So we know that some people might feel like they are two different genders, so people might think they’re bi-gender.”

Bi-gender.

Bye, gender.

With so many options, it seems that, ultimately, “gender” means nothing at all.

Ban on Eating Dogs and Cats Blocked By UK’s Ministry of Justice; It Might Offend Southeast Asians

The Sun reports that a proposed legal ban on eating dogs and cats was blocked by officials in the UK’s Ministry of Justice. The reason? Member of Parliament Giles Watling was told by a source inside the Ministry it would be “culturally insensitive for the government to dictate to other nations what they should eat.”

The source added that the law would be difficult to enforce and the “current ban on transporting or exporting dog and cat meat suffices.”

Watling told The Sun:

Dogs are our companion animals. We do not eat them, and that is a very important message to send to the rest of the world.

It’s not culturally insensitive because we’re not telling them what to do – we’re just telling them what we do.

We shouldn’t be worrying about that, so I was surprised that was the MoJ’s objection.

A Ministry of Justice spokeswoman spoke to The Sun and said, “We currently have some of the strongest animal welfare laws in the world. The government is currently considering whether any changes are needed in this area in the UK and will set out any plans in due course.”

The practice is already banned in Germany, Austria, Taiwan, South Australia and Hong Kong.

According to The Sun:

An estimated 30 million dogs a year are slaughtered to be eaten, across China, the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia.

Most are stolen off the street.

Their meat is considered both a delicacy and a health tonic.

 The Sun has a photograph on their website of the “Yulin Dog Meat Festival” which is held annually in China’s Guangxi province. It’s difficult to look at.

It is illegal to eat dog or cat meat in the US, but I was surprised to see how recently this legislation passed. The Federal Dog and Cat Meat Trade Prohibition Act was was signed into law in December 2018 as part of the 2018 Farm Bill.

Former Republican Governor Calls Aspiring Gun Thief Beto O’Rourke an ‘Immature Pest’

On Monday, former Republican New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu provided a new characterization for 2020 hopeful Beto “I can changed a tire, and I can prove it” O’Rourke: Given the heap of absurdity coming out of his mouth — specifically, a promise to steal America’s most popular hunting rifle from the homes of its citizens — the dude’s an “immature pest.”

John told Fox News host Bill Hemmer Beto’s just grabbing at whatever straws he can:

“He really is desperate at this point and will say just about anything to get a headline. You gave him a headline, and so he will probably continue to say silly things like that that will irritate both his Democrats and the Republicans.”

I’d like to offer an idea here: He may be saying really, punishingly stupid things out of desperation; but if so, his desperation is due to his low numbers and his low numbers are due to saying really stupid things.

As a reminder:

And, subsequently, this:

There was also this:

And it’s all this:

Not all congressional Democrats are happy with Beto’s antics: Over the weekend, Democratic Rhode Island Rep. David Cicilline claimed there’s no reason to believe his party is suggesting guns should be confiscated, and that Beto’s doofiness “doesn’t help.”

To John, that only further solidifies Beto’s place in the politisphere:

“[I]t just confirms that Beto O’Rourke has slipped into the role of the immature pest that even the Democrats want out of the process.”

Given the roll he’s on, they probably won’t have to wait very long.
