Well, it is official. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke has reversed his prior position and has announced his intent to run for the 2020 Presidential Race. His entrance narrows the lane currently occupied Bernie Sanders and is likely to fracture the college crowd.
There is little reason to suspect he could offer much more than to shave a few points away from Bernie; which, not coincidentally, would be in alignment with the preferred objective of the DNC club.
TEXAS – […] O’Rourke said his presidential campaign will be headquartered in El Paso and those who want to join his team will have to move to the border city.
But he also said he would no longer swear off hiring consultants, giving an example of a single mother in the Dallas area who was unable to join his Senate campaign because it would have required her to close her business.
“My preference is to find people who can move to El Paso and work on this campaign full time, but in order to get the breadth of experience and wisdom and diversity that we really need in a campaign that will look like everyone, I want to remain open to different employment situations. It doesn’t fit on a bumper sticker, but it will ensure that I get the greatest talent possible.” (read more)
The introduction of Robert Francis O’Rourke is weak at best, with little to no fanfare from the DNC club. This is not the entrance of ‘the chosen one‘.
The unofficial ‘chosen one‘, the intended party donor candidate, will not likely surface until April or May 2019. The DNC is predictable; it’s a club. It’s still seems far too early for the anointed candidate to surface. Planning and strategy is one of the key elements of the Democrat party. It might seem weird at first, but the DNC club is not chaotic; and, from my perspective, that is their weakness. It makes them predictable.
The chosen-one would generally come into play immediately after the democrats have set down a larger trumpeted baseline. The chosen-one roll out would be designed to flow from the club’s baseline narrative. This Beto timing is off script…
The Democrats rarely, if ever, go off script.
Knowing it’s likely the ♦UniParty DNC is following a similar ♦UniParty RNC strategy, we can start to put the personal characteristics and political traits together and contrast them against 2016. Here’s the way it looks so far:
- Senator Ted Cruz was to 2016…. as Senator Elizabeth Warren is to 2020
- ♦Governor Jeb Bush was to 2016 as….
- Senator Marco Rubio was to 2016… as Senator Bernie Sanders is to 2020
- Governor John Kasich was to 2016… as [Joe Biden]
- Senator Lindsey Graham was to 2016 as… Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is to 2020
- Governor Mike Huckabee was to 2016… as Senator Corey Booker is to 2020
- Senator Rand Paul was to 2016…. as Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard is to 2020
- Dr. Ben Carson was to 2016… as Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke is to 2020
- Governor Chris Christie was to 2016 as… Governor J. Hickenlooper is to 2020
- Governor Scott Walker was to 2016 as… Governor Jay Inslee is to 2020
- Senator Rick Santorum was to 2016…. as Senator Sherrod Brown is to 2020
- Governor George Pataki was to 2016 as….
- Governor Rick Perry was to 2016…. as Senator Kamala Harris is to 2020
- Governor Bobby Jindal was to 2016…. as Julian Castro is to 2020
- Carly Fiorina was to 2016 as…. Senator Amy Klobuchar is to 2020
- Governor Jim Gilmore was to 2016…
Reminder, anyone who is announcing their presidential bid ahead of Speaker Pelosi and the DNC delivering the election narrative (impeachment or similar) is not part of the DNC plan. The “Chosen One” will likely surface during the April/May to June/July period when the legislative crew, the DNC crew and the media crew execute the plan.
We will be able to identify the “Chosen One” by the roll out that accompanies the announcement. [ex. remember the Greek columns, trumpets, pomp, etc.?]
Once we get a few more names (approx. 16) on the DNC side, we can start to have fun with the celebrity squares graphics.
A local news station, KTSM El Paso Texas, is reporting that Robert Francis O’Rourke will announce tomorrow he is officially running for President.
If accurate, Beto O’Rourke would be the eleventh official candidate.
While Robert Francis was expected to join the race (just not yet), and he is Obama’s likely pick for support, the timing is off and interesting. First the article:
EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – Beto O’Rourke is running for President of the United States.
The former El Paso Congressman will make the announcement on Thursday morning, but he confirmed via text to KTSM Wednesday afternoon that he is seeking the Democratic nomination.
“I’m really proud of what El Paso did and what El Paso represents,” O’Rourke said in the text. “It’s a big part of why I’m running. This city is the best example of this country at its best.”
Speculation on whether he would run for president has been discussed since his Senate loss to Ted Cruz in November. An appearance with Oprah and a February showdown in El Paso with President Donald Trump only added to the discussion. (read more)
Two white Irishmen, Robert Francis O’Rourke and Joe Biden, are being heavily emphasized as possible entrants into the growing DNC field. However, something about the timing of this one doesn’t pass the sniff test; and doesn’t fit the rules, customs and by-laws of the professional DNC club.
Recently Nancy Pelosi announced she was dropping her ‘impeachment plan’, which is about as genuine a proclamation as my intention to stick forks in my eyes tomorrow. However, with something happening behind the club’s curtain, the false narrative of a dropped impeachment might also have something to do with the timing here.
Tomorrow, March 14th, 2019, at the same time as this “Beto” fest, the transcription of the deposition of Trump Dossier co-author Christopher Steele is scheduled to be released. Beto could represent the familiar ¹’bathtub principle’…. flood the news-cycle to bury a politically explosive opposition lede story.
[¹Bathtub Principle metaphor: is when a renter intentionally overflows the bathtub to hide damage from the fact they broke a 50 gallon fish tank from the landlord.]
The chosen-one would generally come into play immediately after the democrats have set down a larger trumpeted baseline. The chosen-one rollout would be designed to flow from the baseline narrative. This Beto timing is off script…

Justice Democrats is an American progressive political action committee founded on January 23, 2017, by Kyle Kulinski of Secular Talk, Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks, and former leadership from the 2016 Bernie Sanders presidential campaign. Uygur and Kulinski are no longer affiliated with the group. Alexandra Rojas became executive director of the organization in May 2018. The organization formed as a result of the 2016 United States presidential election and has a stated goal of reforming the Democratic Party by running “a unified campaign to replace every corporate-backed member of Congress” and rebuild the Democratic Party from “scratch” starting in the 2018 congressional midterm elections.
Justice Democrats describes its views as being held by most Americans, but deemed “politically impossible” by the current political establishment because of systemic political corruption. Members of the Justice Democrats comment that as all campaigns need donations and that candidates who hold policies viewed as unfavorable by corporate interests and wealthy individuals will be denied funding by corporations. Therefore the system actually ends up forcing politicians to change their policies to suit the current business environment.
In the 2018 elections, 26 of the 79 candidates endorsed by Justice Democrats won their respective primary elections. Seven of these candidates won in the general election: Raúl Grijalva, Ro Khanna, Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Pramila Jayapal. Districts won ranged from D+13 to D+34 on the Cook PVI, meaning solid Democrat. No swing districts were won, though Kara Eastman and Ammar Campa-Najjar came close in their respective races.
