Three-term Democrat US congressman Beto (Robert) O’Rourke has announced that he will run for president in 2020.
O’Rourke has obviously little experience in national politics – just three years in Congress. He is only 46 years old and he wants to be president based on the fact that he got national name recognition when he ran for the US Senate from Texas in 2018… and lost.
This is your classic Democrat today. Many Democrats think that Trump is hobbled and that anyone can beat him. They totally misunderstand Trump’s strength, as they did in 2016.
They also believe that a good Democrat president is merely a “caretaker” like Obama who acts like a president, maintains the Washington status quo, poses for photos, says liberal things to get fawning media coverage, and passes big government programs whenever possible.
On the other hand president Trump has made many hard-headed and bold reforms like confronting China on its unfair trade policies, trying to make peace with North Korea, seeking control of the border, destroying ISIS in Syria and best of all reconfiguring domestic economic policies on a grand scale.
O’Rourke also served on the city council in the Mexican border city of El Paso, Texas. He often speaks to his hispanic audiences in Spanish. Democrats think that this makes him more attractive to hispanic voters but Nikitas3.com believes that this will turn off most American voters if he overdoes it (which he will).
O’Rourke is a media darling. He recently had a cover story in glitzy Vanity Fair magazine, a must-read publication on the elite left. He looks like a scrawny Bobby Kennedy-type and thus the Fake News media seem to love him as if they can vicariously bring Kennedy back to life.
And, yes, Beto is another Democrat extremist in good standing. During his announcement for his candidacy he went 100% full throttle on the so-called ‘climate change’ hoax and its End of the World theory. He also wants an open border with Mexico and even wants to tear down all existing border barriers.
It gets worse. Here are a few lines from a poem written by O’Rourke in 1988:
I need a butt-shine,
You are holy,
Oh, sacred Cow
I thirst for you,
Buff my balls,
Love the Cow,
Good fortune for those that do.
Love me, breathe my feet,
The Cow has risen.
Wax my ass,
Scrub my balls.
The Cow has risen,
Here is an excerpt of something else that O’Rourke wrote as a teenager:
“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. … 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.”
This guy should not be called Beto. He should be called Sicko. O’Rourke also had an online name of Psychedelic Warlord in the 1980s. And so you wonder: Has he ever taken LSD? It sounds like he did.
If all this isn’t bad enough, O’Rourke needs to watch his back on another front. After all he is a white male and white males are becoming increasingly less welcome in the Democrat party. Black and hispanic commentators met O’Rourke’s announcement with contempt, i.e., the civil war in the Democrat party is intensifying.
Nikitas3.com prediction: O’Rourke will flame out. His 15 minutes of fame are over.
Former Colorado governor and Denver mayor John Hickenlooper also announced that he will run for president in 2020. Hickenlooper starts out at a huge disadvantage, however. His name is not good for a political candidate. People laugh at it.
In short the list of mediocre and unqualified candidates continues to grow on the Democrat side. Many of these Democrats are not only inexperienced but are far too young to be president.
The US Constitution set the minimum age for president at 35 years old. But the Constitution was ratified in 1787 when the average lifespan was less than 40 and when people in general were much wiser and more mature than today at much younger ages.
Nikitas3.com believes that the minimum age for president should be 60. And to understand it, think of how much more clearly we all think at 60 than at 35. The two best presidents in the last century have been Republicans Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump, both first elected at age 69.
The three worst presidents, who were first elected in their 40s, were John F. Kennedy, Bill Clinton and Obama.
Meanwhile Nikitas3.com has written many times that president Trump is on his way to re-election in 2020. My reasons are given at the bottom of this commentary.
And just when some Democrats and their media cronies thought that they had beaten Trump down such that he could not be re-elected along comes Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
This militant congresswoman from New York is spouting the most outlandish and extreme rhetoric like abolishing cars and airplanes in the Green New Deal; proposing radical ‘climate’ legislation; opening the border permanently; eliminating private health insurance and putting everyone on a government plan; and bashing our capitalist economy as “irredeemable”.
Other extremist Democrats like Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris and Cory Booker want other left-wing programs like free college, legalizing marijuana and prostitution nationwide and guaranteeing an income for all Americans (communism). Phew… the list goes on and on.
This radicalism is alienating a huge swath of Americans and increasing numbers of liberals know it. Anti-Trump Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank recently warned about this phenomenon in a column called Who Can Save Trump Now? Democrats
Meanwhile long-time Democrat strategist Doug Schoen predicted that his own party is on the way to self-destruction against Trump.
And while the opinion of porn actress Stormy Daniels may not sound important she does represent a ‘person in the street’ Trump-hater point of view, saying about Trump’s re-election prospects, “Some days I’m like, ‘There’s no way (that Trump will be re-elected) …. Other days I’m like, ‘This motherf****r’s going to win again.”
In other words there is a narrative slowly evolving even among Trump haters and Democrats that Trump may very well be re-elected. And it is like a slow-motion train wreck that cannot be stopped even though many people see it happening.
It has happened before. In 1972 Democrat primary voters picked a very liberal US senator George McGovern of South Dakota to run against incumbent president Republican Richard Nixon, who was hated by Democrats.
Despite four years of Trump-like media bashing of Nixon he won re-election by winning 49 states and 95% of the electoral votes. And while the political landscape has changed and president Trump will never win 49 states he could win 32 or more states (he won 30 states in 2016) and 60% of the electoral votes, i.e., a landslide.
But warnings about growing extremism cannot stop wacktivist Democrat primary voters from picking an unelectable militant like Batty Bernie Sanders or California US senator Kamala Harris.
Let’s face it – the election of Donald Trump has made the Democrats crazy and this anger, hatred and vitriol is leading them to massively overplay their political hand with their endless trashing of Trump. Everything they say and do is radical.
In other words many members of the Democrat party think that Trump is so hated that they can say and do anything and that they are going to win. This shows how disconnected they are.
Even the anti-Trump TV show called The View was recently discussing the wacko theory that first lady Melania Trump has a body double who acts on her behalf during some public appearances.
At the same time the Democrat drift into anti-Semitism has been growing for decades and recently came into the open in the case of muslim Democrat congresswoman Ilhan Omar. It has gotten so bad that even mainstream Democrat strategist and CNN commentator Paul Begala referred to president Trump’s Jewish son-in-law Jared Kushner and Jewish-convert daughter Ivanka as “cockroaches”.
This is the type of language we heard under Hitler when Jews were called termites, parasites and other demeaning things. And it has led to talk about a ‘Jexit’ or an exit of Jewish voters from the Democrat party.
So president Trump appears to be on his way to re-election in 2020. Here are the main reasons that he will win, according to Nikitas3.com:
*His current national job approval rating is up to 50% or more in the Rasmussen poll, which is the most accurate poll. This is a great number to build on. It will go higher as the election approaches.
*Trump is the incumbent, which gives him a huge advantage. Americans are increasingly comfortable with Trump at the helm. They are not likely to toss him out or “change horses in the middle of the stream”, as the old saying goes.
*The economy is doing very well and optimism is high. This is the main issue that will help him to win.
*He is doing everything he can to secure the border. This is much more popular with American voters than the media will let on.
*Many labor union members, who are traditional Democrat voters, support president Trump over his work on the economy.
*The relentless attacks on Trump by the Fake News media are backfiring since many more American distrust the media than distrust the president.
*President Trump is getting high approval ratings from blacks and hispanics over the strong economy. He has the kinds of numbers that swing elections to Republicans.
*Democrats are embracing the wacky Green New Deal that wants to eliminate oil, coal, natural gas, cars, airplanes and meat from our diets. Most Americans know that this is economic suicide.
*Democrats are supporting the idea of eliminating private health insurance and putting everyone on a government plan. This is terrifying to tens of millions of voters.
*Trump is going to crush his opponent in the 2020 presidential debates that come just a few weeks before election day. He is totally confident and unafraid on the debate stage. He knows how to make his case.
*Trump wiped out ISIS in Syria, ending the war there. He is trying to make peace with North Korea. He has induced Europeans to pay more for NATO. His foreign policy credentials are excellent.
*Trump will get a “sympathy backlash” vote after the media and Democrats have piled onto him since Day One.
