Texas gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke claimed during his debate against Governor Greg Abbott that he does not support defunding the police.
Of course, O’Rourke was saying the exact opposite in 2020. Tonight, Beto O’Rourke said he “of course” doesn’t support ‘Defunding the Police.’ In 2020, O’Rourke enthusiastically called for defunding and “completely dismantling” police departments. — Kyle Martinsen (@KyleMartinsen_) October 1, 2022 TRENDING: BREAKING: Maricopa County ‘s Ministry of Truth BLOCKS The Gateway Pundit Reporter Access To 2022 Midterm Election Coverage In County
The governor has been blasting his challenger for his soft on crime positions.
“Beto’s approach to defund the police is an extraordinarily dangerous approach, a deadly approach,” Abbott said while speaking in Fort Worth earlier this month.
O’Rourke had called for “dismantling” police departments during his “Looking Ahead to Beto Days” podcast in June of 2020, during the Black Lives Matter riots over George Floyd.
“I really love that Black Lives Matters and other protesters have put this front and center, to defund, you know these line items that have overmilitarized our police and instead invest that money in the human capital of your community, make sure that you have the services, the help, the support, the health care necessary to be well and not require police intervention,” O’Rourke said. “And then also in some necessary cases, completely dismantling those police forces and rebuilding them.”
O’Rourke has claimed that he only meant the Minneapolis Police Department and not any Texas departments.
“This is a reoccurring problem that Beto has,” Abbott said in response, according to a report from CBS News . “He says one thing from running for one office and a completely different thing running for a different office.”Abbott reportedly has the support of 17 law enforcement agencies in the state, as well as the Fort Worth and Austin […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
