Texas Democrat Slapped With Federal Charges – Completely Destroys His 2018 Race

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by The Daily Caller

Democratic Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s senate campaign was flagged by the Federal Election Commission (FEC) on Sunday for accepting “excessive” and “impermissible” donations.

The FEC notified O’Rourke that a preliminary review of his campaign’s July quarterly report showed contributions from one or more individuals with addresses outside of the United States. Donations were also made that “exceed the limit” determined by the federal government. O’Rourke has 45 days to respond.

The warning from the FEC came on the same evening that O’Rourke was scheduled to debate Sen. Ted Cruz at the University of Houston. The El Paso congressman declined Cruz’s invitation to the debate, instead live streaming his repeated attempts at making a campaign ad. O’Rourke notably avoided committing to any debates against Cruz for weeks during the summer, and even bowed out of the first tentatively scheduled debate saying he was unhappy that he didn’t get a big enough say in the terms.

Cruz and O’Rourke are in a competitive race for the Texas Senate seat. Cruz leads O’Rourke by nine points according to independent Quinnipiac University poll released in September.

O’Rourke’s campaign did not immediately respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

Meanwhile, Ted Cruz is moving full steam ahead with his campaign, winning over voter left and right.

What happens when a disrespectful Democratic Representative shames the American flag and the national anthem? A video by Ted Cruz answering the calls of patriotic Texans is just the answer you’re looking for. It was none other than Robert (Beto) O’Rourke who claimed that taking a knee during the national anthem is one of the most “American” things that someone can do in form of a peaceful protest. As much as people are allowed to protest, it’s certainly not very American-like to disrespect the flag of our nation or the people who fought to keep it standing.

Ted Cruz had one simple response. A nicely tuned video ad blasting back and making an unapologetic announcement. This is the type of video that could make everyone think twice about kneeling during the national anthem. It’s a disgrace when people take a knee and many people are tired of seeing it.

Ted Cruz’s video already has over 54,000 views and states “Why do I stand?

I stand for the veterans like Tim Lee who lost both his legs fighting in South Vietnam.

SHARE if you’re proud to stand, too!”

What happens when a disrespectful Democratic Representative shames the American flag and the national anthem?

It was none other than Robert (Beto) O’Rourke who claimed that taking a knee during the national anthem is one of the most “American” things that someone can do in form of a peaceful protest. As much as people are allowed to protest, it’s certainly not very American-like to disrespect the flag of our nation or the people who fought to keep it standing.

Ted Cruz had one simple response. A nicely tuned video ad blasting back and making an unapologetic announcement. This is the type of video that could make everyone think twice about kneeling during the national anthem. It’s a disgrace when people take a knee and many people are tired of seeing it.

Ted Cruz’s video already has over 54,000 views and states “Why do I stand?

I stand for the veterans like Tim Lee who lost both his legs fighting in South Vietnam.

“Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas released a campaign ad Monday in response to his opponent’s claim that there is “nothing more American” than protesting the national anthem.

A constituent asked Senate hopeful and Democratic Rep. Robert O’Rourke of Texas earlier in August if he felt that NFL players kneeling for the national anthem was disrespectful to the country and America’s veterans. In a now-viral interaction, O’Rourke disagreed and commended the demonstration.

“My short answer is: No, I don’t think it’s disrespectful,” O’Rourke said. “And I can think of nothing more American than to peacefully stand up or take a knee for your rights, anytime, anywhere, anyplace.”

Cruz fired back on behalf of those veterans who lost the ability to stand themselves while fighting for the country.

“Whoever believed that we would have issues about whether you’re going to stand during the national anthem or not?” Marine Corps Sgt. Tim Lee asked during the ad.

Lee, a retired combat veteran, stepped on a landmine while fighting in Vietnam and consequently lost both of his legs.

“I gave two legs for this country,” Lee continued. “I’m not able to stand, but I sure expect you to stand for me when that national anthem is being played.”

An article by USA Today states that Beto and Ted are in a statistical tie. That’s bizarre considering they’re in Texas. You might think people in Texas are all about standing for the national anthem, but I guess there’s a big group of Democrats who support Beto, which sounds like a very poor decision in my opinion.

Yuma Mayor Declares Emergency Over Migrant Crisis – City Overrun

Published

on

This story originally appeared on WeBuildTheWall.news & was edited & republished with permission:

Sounds like a humanitarian and a national security crisis to me and I’m not the only one who sees it that way. Yuma Mayor Douglas Nicholls just declared an emergency in his city due to what he said was the strain caused by the incoming flow of migrants. The agents and authorities are simply being overwhelmed and swarmed by these invaders.

1,800 came over the border in one day… one day! Half of those detained on Tuesday crossing over from Mexico were found in the El Paso, Texas area, according to officials. Border patrol said more than 980 were apprehended before 5 am after crossing in three large groups. Yuma is having just as rough a time of it.

Mayor Nicholls went public with this on Facebook. He explained that he “proclaimed a local emergency” in the city “due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system.” And it’s not just the sheer numbers of illegal immigrants… it’s the economic burden, the crime, the drugs, the danger to children and disease that is playing into this massive emergency state.

Nicholls is begging the government to step in and do something here. I don’t blame him in the least. They need help and fast. “I am calling upon the federal government to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yuma, as our NGO’s are overcapacity and cannot sustain providing this aid,” the post said. Here’s a thought – ship all of them to sanctuary cities just as Trump proposed. Works for me. Better yet, don’t let them in at all unless they come here legally.

From Fox News:

“Nicholls, in a video, laid out his reasoning behind the declaration, saying that he ultimately feels that its what’s best for both Yuma and the incoming migrants.

“So it’s with a heavy heart that I declare that we’re at this point but it is something that I believe we need to do to make sure that our community is maintained and that the human rights of all the migrants are also maintained and that we have a path forward that respects both,” he said.

“The city of Yuma, Ariz., also tweeted about the proclamation, citing Nicholls, claiming that released migrants were coming into the area faster than they were leaving.

“The move by the local official comes after President Trump declared a national emergency at the nation’s southern border earlier this year.”

“The transportation network is just insufficient to keep up with demand,” Nicholls said. “And the backlog of people staying at the shelter has created this capacity issue.” The media and the left are playing it up that the poor illegal immigrants don’t have money for bus fare to go to relatives while they await their court date. But the issue here is that they should not be here in the first place.

Now, the city is hoping for a FEMA response. In signing the declaration, Nicholls said he hopes to draw national attention to the plight of local communities struggling with a federal issue, adding that he’s talking to officials in other border cities and calling on them to issue similar emergency declarations. The mayor stated that he had spoken to Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, who signaled his support for the declaration.

Today I proclaimed a local emergency in Yuma, due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system. I am calling upon the federal government to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yuma, as our NGO’s are overcapacity and cannot sustain providing this aid. I signed the proclamation of emergency and soon after spoke with media at approximately 3:15 pm (MST). You can view via the video below:

“We will review any declaration once we receive it,” according to a statement Tuesday night from Patrick Ptak, a Ducey spokesman. “Ultimately, this humanitarian crisis is the result of Congress’ failure to act. It will only be solved by Congress actually doing something, and the governor has vocally urged Congress to quit playing politics and take action. If only they would.

“In the wake of their inaction, our office is working with local governments, non-profits and our federal partners to maximize available resources and ensure proper coordination between ICE officials and groups providing temporary services to migrants.”

Nicholls fears hungry migrants roaming the streets. He should fear much worse than that. “This isn’t a natural disaster,” Nicholls said. “But it is a disaster.”

“… the local emergency exceeds control of the services, personnel, equipment and facilities of the City of Yuma and requires the combined efforts, cooperation, and resources of the Yuma community including local and non-profit agencies such as the Red Cross, Catholic Community Services, The Salvation Army, Yuma Community Food Bank, churches, the County of Yuma, the State of Arizona, and the United States of America,” the statement said.

It’s long past time for the wall to be built and We Build The Wall should start their project this month. Meanwhile, President Trump is still scratching and fighting for every mile of barrier put up. Put the blame of all this where it belongs… squarely on the left. #WeBuildTheWall
