((So much speculation about Beto and 2020. Personally, I would like to see that he could be given a spot on MSNBC or on CNN with a brilliant regular weekly commentary, perhaps even his own show like Rachel Maddow's or Thom Hartmann's, where he would continuously be in the news and would continuously be sharing his compassionate intelligence on any number of issues confronting the United States, both here and abroad.

One could theorize safely that he would be a viable candidate for the other Senate seat presently held by John Cornyn, although he would have a much tougher time against Cornyn than he did against Cruz. Beto, gentleman that he is, never brought up (to my knowledge) the massive violations of Texas law that occur ed in this election, concerning the hundreds, if not thousands of voting machines that we connected together to the internet and thus subject to manipulation. This was happening and documented in major news outlets as early as October 11, a full three weeks before the election. He should have gone to court to defend the votes from those who were voting for him.

For example: New Evidence Shows Texas Senate Race Was Vulnerable to Manipulation by Lulu Friesdat, Editor at ABC News, Published November 6, 2018 in Truthout

"Texas state law specifically prohibits it, mandating that 'No voting system is ever connected to the internet at any point -- either when votes are being cast or when they are being counted.'

That's because wi-fi and internet connectivity are some of the easiest ways for malware to be introduced into a voting machine or tabulator. Once introduced, that malware could change election results on that voting machine, or on other voting machines infected via memory cards. The malware could then make its way into the vote tabulating system itself, potentially infecting the main election management system's computers. If a wi-fi signal is in the tabulating room, the malware could get into the system that counts the votes quickly and easily, bypassing all of the other steps, and rapidly change the results of an entire county."


We all saw this happen to Bernie in New York state in that tumultuous crooked debacle of a primary in 2016, with 1/3 of a million voters intentionally purged before the election. Rather than demand that that primary be redone with forensic monitors in place to prevent election fraud, Bernie said or did almost nothing.

Greg Palast posited that that crooked NY primary was just a dry run for the even more corrupted 2016 general election. I do still support Bernie for 2020, but largely because he has been doing everything right thus far in the lead-up to that election; because I believe to a large extent that he has EARNED the nomination and because he is one of the few national candidates that I actually trust, no matter what his age is.

Beto has a long way to go, and no matter what else happens, he will be carried far by the strength of his idealism and his total decency as a human, as is so clearly evidenced by this following statement on immigration:)

FROM BETO O'ROURKE: It should tell us something about her home country that a mother is willing to travel 2,000 miles with her 4-month-old son to come here. Should tell us something about our country that we only respond to this desperate need once she is at our border. So far, in this administration, that response has included taking kids from their parents, locking them up in cages, and now tear gassing them at the border.
