Is San Francisco Gunning for the NRA?

by Daveda Gruber:

A resolution was passed on Tuesday by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors proclaiming the National Rifle Association a “domestic terrorist organization.”

The resolution was passed on Tuesday and urged the federal government to do like-wise.

Democrats have put gun control and the NRA in the spotlight after several mass shootings that have taken place as of late.

The resolution cites that the U.S. is “plagued by an epidemic of gun violence,” accuses the NRA of using “its considerable wealth and organization strength to promote gun ownership and incite gun owners to acts of violence.”

The resolution goes on to say, “All countries have violent and hateful people, but only in America do we give them ready access to assault weapons and large-capacity magazines thanks, in large part, to the National Rifle Association’s influence.”

The City and County of San Francisco are urging limiting businesses relationships with the NRA.

Those who do business with the city and have done business with the NRA are in the crossfire.

The resolution says, “The City and County of San Francisco should take every reasonable step to limit those entities who do business with the City and County of San Francisco from doing business with this domestic terrorist organization.”

The resolution’s author wrote the text after the July mass shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival shooting that left three people dead.

Beto O’Rourke is in favor of a gun by-back program. Some cities, such as Baltimore, Boston and Los Angeles, have had buyback programs in the past. This is the first time the issue has impacted as a federal proposal.

O’Rourke tweeted this:

When responding, the NRA called the resolution a stunt that was a distraction to not keep the city’s other problems in the spotlight.

The problems in San Francisco are the homelessness and filth on the streets.

San Francisco has a problem with rats, lice and disease from the defecation on its streets. Also, there is drug abuse and petty crime which has risen as of late.

Senator Ted Cruz tweeted this out to Lori Lightfoot, Mayor of Chicago:

The NRA will continue working to protect the 2nd Amendment along with the constitutional rights of all freedom-loving Americans.

Did Beto Really Eat Dirt?

by Daveda Gruber:

Have you ever heard of a child eating dirt? I have but it didn’t seem healthy or something a sane adult would do.

Adults can sometimes eat their own words, humble pie or even eat crow but these metaphors are just that; metaphors. We don’t have to actually digest the similes.

Beto (Robert Francis) O’Rourke took eating to a whole new level after he lost to incumbent Ted Cruz R-TX. Beto ate dirt.

O’Rourke raised $80 million for the Senate race against Cruz and is rejuvenating himself by eating dirt to draw energy.

Beto wrote a 3,000-word profile on himself and it reads, “In January, Beto hit the road, much as his father had done before him, and drew energy from the people he met, and — on one stop in New Mexico he didn’t write about in his blog — by eating New Mexican dirt said to have regenerative powers.”

It also reads, “He brought some home for the family to eat, too.”

Beto’s story was published by The Washington Post.

I wonder if Beto’s family all ate dirt. Someone told me on Twitter that America needs illegal immigrants to pick crops to supply the American people with food. I did argue the point in my reply tweet.

Well, if Beto is correct in his assumption that eating dirt is good for us, maybe we don’t need food? We can all just eat that yummy dirt.

Was Beto a Hacker?

by Daveda Gruber:

Would the mainstream media hold back on a story if it could possibly hurt a Democratic runner in an election? You wouldn’t think so, right? You’d be wrong if you thought that they would get the story out, no matter if it were good, bad or indifferent.

A reporter from Reuters, Joseph Menn, allegedly sat on a big story about Robert Francis O’Rourke. Ted Cruz and O’Rourke ran for a Senate seat in the 2018 mid-term election.

On Friday a famous group of hackers called the “Cult of the Dead Cow” revealed that now 2020 presidential candidate O’Rourke was a member. The hacking group has been credited with inventing the term “hacktivism.”

The group is responsible for a variety of shady activities. Stealing credit card numbers to pay for long-distance telephone service, violating copyright laws and hacking into computers were some of the activities that the hackers participated in. The report from Reuters did stress that O’Rourke himself never “engaged in the edgiest sorts of hacking activity.”

Also brought into light, was another allegation that I’ve written about Beto in connection with the group, wrote bizarre fiction stories under the name “Psychedelic Warlord,” which includes a story about the fantasy of murdering, by running over two children with a car.

As soon as the story came out, Beto was out expressing regret about his deeds.

Menn knew about all of this in 2017 and he sat on it. According to Menn, members of the hacking group were protecting O’Rourke’s identity and would not confirm his connection  to them unless the reporter, Menn, promised not to write about it until after the November election.

Apparently, they made a deal. Menn agreed to sit on an adverse story about Beto until his Senate race was over. Beto lost to Cruz.

Reuters’s story was titled: “Backstory: How Reuters uncovered Beto O’Rourke’s teenage hacking days.”

The story went on to say:

“After more than a year of reporting, Menn persuaded O’Rourke to talk on the record. In an interview in late 2017, O’Rourke acknowledged that he was a member of the group, on the understanding that the information would not be made public until after his Senate race against Ted Cruz in November 2018.

In an interview with Reuters senior producer Jane Lee, Menn explains how he broke the story and got O’Rourke to open up about his hacking days.

“I decided to write a book about the Cult of the Dead Cow because they were the most interesting and influential hacking group in history. They illustrated a lot of the things that I think are fascinating about hacking and security work.

“While I was looking into the Cult of the Dead Cow, I found out that they had a member who was sitting in Congress. I didn’t know which one. But I knew that they had a member of Congress.

“And then I figured out which one it was. And the members of the group wouldn’t talk to me about who it was. They wouldn’t confirm that it was this person unless I promised that I wouldn’t write about it until after the November election. That’s because the member of Congress had decided to run for Senate. Beto O’Rourke is who it was.

“I met Beto O’Rourke. I said ‘I’m writing a book about Cult of the Dead Cow, I think it’s really interesting. I know you were in this group. This book is going to publish after November and your Senate race is over. And he said, ‘OK.’

“And he told me about his time in the Cult of the Dead Cow.””

Cruz took to Twitter to express his feelings:

Menn had some interesting tweets on the subject too:

Do people actually understand that the news media is biased? Some do and some watch TV news blindly and listen to what they believe must be truth that is being reported.

I am personally disgusted in what I see being reported and not being reported. The media is backing the LEFT and they are not hiding their agenda.

Beto Sorry about Writing a Murder Fantasy Story?

by Daveda Gruber:

If you are going to run for President of the United States, your deepest secrets will be revealed. People will dig up your past and bury you in your own deeds.

On Friday, 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Beto (Robert Francis) O’Rourke was apologizing for his past actions.

He was sorry for a campaign joke that he made about how he and his wife raise their children. Has was also sorry for a short story he wrote about murdering two children by running them over.

Beto was taping “Political Party Live” podcast in Cedar Rapids, Iowa when he apologized for a campaign joke he made on a number of occasions. He had been joking and saying that his wife, Amy, raised their children “sometimes with my help.”

Beto said on the podcast, “Not only will I not say that again, but I’ll be more thoughtful going forward in the way that I talk about our marriage, and also the way in which I acknowledge the truth of the criticism that I have enjoyed white privilege.”

Beto commented to CNN and said, “So yes, I think the criticism is right on. My ham-handed attempt to try to highlight the fact that Amy has the lion’s share of the burden in our family — that she actually works but is the primary parent in our family, especially when I served in Congress, especially when I was on the campaign trail — should have also been a moment for me to acknowledge that that is far too often the case, not just in politics, but just in life in general. I hope as I have been in some instances part of the problem, I can also be part of the solution.”

The New York Times reported that Beto’s comments “elicited both laughter and derision” and cited tweets that criticized him for unwittingly exposing the double standard between male and female candidates.

Then there was the murder story that Beto wrote when he was fifteen years old. He acknowledged its surfacing could hurt his campaign.

O’Rourke wrote stories under the name “Psychedelic Warlord.” He wrote in the first person about a murder spree as part of his goal seeking “the termination of everything that was free and loving.” The piece described the first kill as the murder of two children crossing the street.

It reads:

“Then one day, as I was driving home from work, I noticed two children crossing the street. They were happy, happy to be free from their troubles. I knew, however, that this happiness and sense of freedom were much too overwhelming for them.”

“This happiness was mine by right. I had earned it in my dreams. As I neared the young ones, I put all my weight on my right foot, keeping the accelerator pedal on the floor until I heard the crashing of the two children on the hood, and then the sharp cry of pain from one of the two. I was so fascinated for a moment, that when after I had stopped my vehicle, I just sat in a daze, sweet visions filling my head.”

Beto had dismissed the writings before but now says, “It was stuff that I was a part of as a teenager that I’m not proud of today, and I mean that’s the long and short of it. I’m mortified to read it now, incredibly embarrassed, but I have to take ownership of my words. Whatever my intention was as a teenager doesn’t matter, I have to look long and hard at my actions, at the language I have used, and I have to constantly try to do better.”

I agree that he has to take ownership of his deeds. I’ve know writers who write about murder and violence. I’ve edited and published books about murder. I’m not running for president and neither are the authors.

Something about creating a story in one’s mind about the innermost fantasies and motivation to run over children and to deliberately murder them, is difficult to swallow.
