Beto O'Rourke is running for president in 2020

No.367880 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Beto O'Rourke says he will seek the Democratic nomination for president in 2020.
The decision comes after months of questioning whether to run, a road trip, and mostly avoiding media appearances.
O'Rourke's entrance into the race adds one of the most prolific fundraisers of the past midterm election cycle.

>The young predator is thought to have entered the henhouse at an agricultural school at dusk last week and become trapped inside by light-controlled automatic hatch doors that close when the sun goes down.

>Students at Le Gros Chene school in Brittany discovered the body of the animal when making their rounds to check on the chickens the following morning.

>"There, in the corner, we found this dead fox," Pascal Daniel, head of farming at the school, told the AFP. "There was a herd instinct and they attacked him with their beaks."

>The free-range, organic farm where the incident took place has a chicken coop that is open all day, and the hens spend most of the daytime outside unless they're laying eggs.

>The last time a fox visited one of the school's chicken coops, more than a year ago, it turned out much worse for the hens, said Daniel.

Suspected mob boss killer writes ‘MAGA Forever,’ QAnon symbol on his hand

There’s at least one Don he really likes.

The man suspected of gunning down mafia kingpin Francesco “Franky Boy” Cali showed off a hand covered in scrawls related to President Trump and the conservative QAnon movement at his first court appearance on Monday.

Anthony Comello, 24, who even yawned during the highly anticipated appearance in a New Jersey courtroom, held up his left palm and revealed a large, bold “Q” written in blue ink in the center of his hand.

It was surrounded by the phrases “MAGA Forever,” “United We Stand” and “Patriots in Charge USA.”

“Patriots in Charge” appears to be a variant of the slogan “Patriots Are In Control,” which is associated with online followers of QAnon, who’s purported to be one or more high-level government insiders aware of a “deep state” conspiracy against Trump.

A book titled “QAnon: An Invitation to the Great Awakening,” which claims to have been written by 12 anonymous QAnon followers, is this week’s No. 7 best-seller on amazon.com, following its publication late last month.

Comello has been researching QAnon online and often wears one of Trump’s signature “Make America Great Again” hats, law-enforcement sources told The Post.

Comello appeared to have written on his palm with a ballpoint pen before being brought into the Ocean County Courthouse in Toms River with his hands cuffed and shackled to a leather belt around his waist.

He showed off the handiwork while seated in the jury box before the judge entered, smirking as he turned to face the reporters and government workers who packed the courtroom.
A court officer who noticed Comello holding his hand out asked why he was doing it.

“Why not? I’m handcuffed,” he answered.

Senate passes resolution to overturn Trump's national emergency declaration

>Washington (CNN)The Senate delivered a high-profile rebuke to President Donald Trump over his signature agenda issue Thursday when 12 Republicans joined Democrats to overturn the President's national emergency border declaration.

>The vote was 59-41, an overwhelming vote against the President's executive action.

>Lawmakers don't have enough votes, however, to override a certain veto from the President, but passage of the resolution in the Senate after it passed the House last month is nevertheless an embarrassing blow to Trump delivered by his own party over the President's top campaign pledge of a wall at the US-Mexico border.

>The 12 Senate Republicans who voted in support of the resolution were: Roger Wicker of Mississippi, Marco Rubio of Florida, Rob Portman of Ohio, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, Roy Blunt of Missouri, Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, Mitt Romney of Utah, Rand Paul of Kentucky, Jerry Moran of Kansas and Mike Lee of Utah.

>The setback for the President also comes on the heels of another high-profile break with his administration after the Senate voted just one day earlier to curtail US military support for a Saudi-led war in Yemen, which has created a humanitarian crisis in that country.

>Senate Republicans have struggled for weeks over how to vote on the resolution to overturn the national emergency.

>The vote forced many to choose between loyalty to a President unafraid to attack members of his party who defy him and an emergency declaration that conservative critics describe as executive overreach and warn could set a precedent used by Democratic presidents to declare emergencies over liberal priorities such as action on climate change.

White Men Dominate Democratic Presidential Field
1:05 PM 03/18/2019 | Politics
Saagar Enjeti | White House Correspondent

Former Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke, Democratic Sen. Bernie Sanders, and former Vice President Joe Biden dominate the Democratic 2020 presidential field in either fundraising or polling in the early days of the contest.
The dominance of the white, male trio has caused consternation among the Democratic faithful, who were initially emboldened by the diverse nature of the field including persons of color, women and LGBTQIA+ representation.
New York Times reporter Astead Herndon noted the trend on Twitter Monday, saying:
"much made of dem field's gender diversity, but it seems both beto o'rourke and bernie sanders raised more $$$ in first 24/48 hours than all than all the women in the race -- combined? And biden, although early, is still atop polls"
