Beto O'Rourke Steps Into Texas Gubernatorial Race Against Abbott in 2022

"The Democrats have an agenda to try to turn Texas blue. They keep saying it's going to turn blue. Big news today, beto o'rourke, he's back. Running for governor challenging Greg Abbott, let me get the dean of Texas talk show hosts responds to that big breaking news. For those who don't remember 2018, beto o'rourke came out of virtually nowhere in El Paso member of Congress and managed to excite enough Democrats that he came to within two and a half percentage points of Ted Cruz, our biggest conservative rockstar. That was 2018. This is three years later. What's different now? Well, one thing he's running for governor and not for the Senate, the other thing is three years of time passing. The questions become, does he still have the same kind of moths to a flame drawing power for Democrats that he had three years ago? I think the short answer to that is yes. Democrats are naturally thrilled by the notion of having a rockstar like beto, run for governor. But you know what other kind of group beto energizes? Conservative voters. Who for three years have had a good solid memory of how crazy he is on the Second Amendment. In deeply wrong he is on boarders and the economy. He is saddled with the albatross of Joe Biden in this gubernatorial race. And so in taking calls on the fly about it, this very morning, I found two types of voters who were stoked that beto is running. Democrats ready to vote for him? Republicans ready to vote against him, so the key question is going to be which is the larger group. I think beto finishes closer to Greg Abbott, presuming he's the nominee. He does have competition. He finishes closer to Abbott than any other Democrat would have, but do I think beto is going to be the next governor of Texas? I decidedly do

Between all the mainstream activist networks ABC, NBC CBS CNN MSNBC, zero, mentions on their morning show. This morning that there is a multi thousand person caravan heading for the southern border. Let's go to cut 40 build illusion reporting on how migrants are hiding in cars on trains on their way to San Antonio high cut 40. What you're looking at are Texas state troopers finding 19 illegal immigrants hiding inside of brand new cars that were inside of a train being shipped to the San Antonio area. You can see the troopers looking at those migrants panning up and down Texas DPS pulled 5 other single adult males off of this train arrested them as well. They are all going to jail as well. Again, they are not being handed over to border patrol. And now cut 25, Fox shows how many Texas has deployed the state National Guard as caravans gather in Mexico, heading for Texas, play cut 25. What you're looking at is the Texas National Guard deploying to the area in and around the Del Rio international bridge. Why are they doing this? Because they've seen that migrant caravan that's on the way to the United States as we speak. Texas governor Greg Abbott says he is not going to allow another Del Rio situation to happen like we saw with the Haitians last month. He is pre deploying resources out there as a Shoal force to say if the federal government isn't going to secure that area, the state of Texas will step up. We will fill that void, and they are sending a message to that caravan saying, you will not be allowed to enter Texas. Texas is learning from their lesson of the last lesson I should say are their mistake where they allowed Haitians just to walk right into the state of Texas with almost no one stopping

Gov. Abbott Vaccine Mandate Ban Under Fire

"I want to play for you a clip of Greg Abbott on Fox Sunday with Maria bartiromo yesterday and then get your reaction to it here is governor rabbit of Texas. Well, you make a good point about all the people resigning because that's one of the problems with regard to the supply chain because so many people who are being forced to get a vaccine do not want to do that and they hints they're leaving their jobs. However, to answer your question, clearly, what President Biden is doing is unconstitutional. There is zero authority in the constitution that gives the president or his administration, the authority to mandate anybody taking a vaccine. And that's why we feel very confident. So stop right there, John burch, I agree with this so far as it goes to people not employed by the federal government. Do you agree with this as alliance defending involved in any of the vaccination litigation? Absolutely, we're involved in litigation. And when this executive order comes out, we would very much like to file a couple of lawsuits to challenge it. The federal government is supposed to be one of limited powers. And the states and the local governments are where general police and health and safety regulations should be taking place. And we feel very confident about bringing those arguments to the federal court system.

And AT&T and now Tesla. I would love to see all these liberal companies that are headquartered in Texas. Now pay their employees to go leave the state.

Who were signed up to be there at the signing of the bill and they were going to get a pen and all this stuff. Because i was a bad boy on another issue that got canceled without telling me or any of these grassroots people and he and i find out that he goes on twitter and does a twitter live. I mean when.

It's it's it's super important and you know in a in a solid red state which is texas east to be till we got a bunch of rhinos in there But in a republican state. The election is in the republican primary okay. There's no reason for us to believe that. A republican aren't going to take the entire slate all the way down so who is on. That slate is is the argument in the primary. This is where conservatives get a chance to onto honestly have their vote matter more because there's less people who are going to be involved it takes less people to get your guy on there and i will just tell you from my experience down there. I was stabbed in the back. More by fake republicans more than the democrats because at least they square up. And you're you know you know where they stand on the issue Republicans are lying to you about it but but but he. but here's the bottom line this race that you guys are in right now..

They say greg app. It's a great governor andrew. Wilkau show the other day and he gets. I live in new jersey. I would love to have greg abbott. You know which. I told him. I said you. That's because you guys are y'all get huge chunks of liberty taken away here in texas when it starts getting chipped away we don. Yeah but imagine a pretty wife. You know she. she's beautiful. Just just a beautiful woman and everybody looks at her and says man you the perfect marriage you got the perfect home life you got this. You can just have it altogether. Your husband is successful. he's he's handsome man. he's he's responsible. He does well takes care of his family but she's got a secret what she doesn't what she doesn't tell people is. There's some bruises under the makeup. There's some things that are there. That just aren't jehlum so well right. And that's kind of where. I see a lot of conservatives in texas now kind of look at greg abbott. They're like okay on paper. Yeah looks good. Yeah looks right. Looks good and greg. Greg abbott has literally made a career. I mean we're talking about a guy. Career politician been in there for years and years and years. The interesting thing about greg. Abbott is is that he has never truly been under the microscope. He's never had a republican primary challenge before when he was a judge when he was on the supreme court when he was attorney. General and up until you guys through your hat in the ring. He's never had to answer to republican primary voters and it's frustrating because some people don't understand the process usually most texans right now if they hear you say anything negative about greg abbott. They assume that you are a liberal democrat. Well the process. Is we get to pick which republican represents us and this is the first time the texans have had a chance to actually look at greg and on the surface it is. You know the facade. It's the theater that they have put together over time with a lot of campaign dollars of from special interests and put him in position To look like he's a conservative and because he's never had an opponent no one's ever pulled back those layers and actually gotten into it. And when you do you very quickly just like your analogy. Realize things are not at all what they seem. We're dealing with a guy who is really mastered how to be what i call campaign conservative. But that yeah. He's a campaign conservative. But i've been down there with him. I was there with them for two years when he was attorney general six years when he was governor. And i'm telling you that is not the case i saw with my own eyes I was in the back rooms when things were happening..
