Beto O’Rourke has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons.

For example, he lied about fleeing the scene of a drunken driving crash. He did, in fact, leave the scene.

It won’t matter for much longer. Beto is soon to be trounced by Sen. Ted Cruz come November.

What’s interesting, though, is Beto’s years-long alliance with a man who compares America to Nazi Germany and law enforcement to terrorists.

Shouldn’t this be headline news?

From Daily Wire:

Senatorial nominee Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke has for years been a recurring guest on the “Drug Truth Network,” a fringe pro-drug legalization media outlet whose founder has compared America to Nazi Germany and law enforcement and military members to terrorists.

The founder of Drug Truth Network, Dean Becker, is a pro-drug legalization activist. O’Rourke has been a recurring guest since 2009, when the Texas Democrat sat on the El Paso Council, according to Becker’s website, DrugTruth.Net.

Becker has three weekly radio shows: “Century of Lies,” “Cultural Baggage” and “4:20 Drug War News.” He’s featured O’Rourke on all three of them.

O’Rourke appeared on “Cultural Baggage” in August, where Becker introduced him as “my very good friend Congressman Beto O’Rourke.”




Beto for president?

From Texas Monthly:

Beto O’Rourke is a 45-year-old three-term congressman representing the sixth-largest city in Texas. He serves on the less-than-almighty Armed Services and Veterans Affairs committees. In parliamentary parlance, he’s a back-bencher. He is currently running a long-shot Senate campaign in a state that hasn’t elected a Democrat to statewide office since 1994, and, to this day, he hasn’t led a poll in the race. But over the past couple weeks, certain quarters of the internet have floated the idea that O’Rourke might very well run for President of the United States as soon as 2020.

The precipitating cause for much of the talk was the release of an instantly mega-viral video of O’Rourke answering a town-hall question on how he felt about NFL players protesting police brutality and racial injustice during the national anthem. O’Rourke’s response—a long, nuanced commentary on America’s civil rights history—has been viewed on the Facebook page of the liberal media group NowThis Politics more than 24 million times and immediately set off a Twitter storm. LeBron James called it a “must watch.” Russell Crowe called O’Rourke “a dude.” Ellen DeGeneres said she wanted to meet him.

Political commentators also began floating the idea that O’Rourke could soon be running for an office even higher than the U.S. Senate. The longtime Washington political writer Ron Brownstein wrote: “If ‪@BetoORourke can get over the hill in TX-still a very tough climb for those last few points-he seems clearly the best positioned Democrat to rapidly accelerate, Obama-style, from initial statewide victory to instant presidential buzz in the 18/20 cycle.” Steve Schmidt, senior advisor to John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign, asked: “Anybody else see a little bit of RFK in Beto?” A week before the release of the video, the Austin American-Statesman’s Jonathan Tilove had already predicted that “if O’Rourke were to come within 2 or 3 points of Cruz, I think he would be the presumptive front-runner for his party’s presidential nomination.”
