Robert Francis ‘Beto’ O’Rourke, who told us in his 2019 Presidential campaign that he was ‘born’ for this is now taking his run for the Texas Democrat gubernatorial primary.

No matter how flaky Robert Francis might be, as someone who has a lot of money and friendly media cover behind him, he should not be lightly dismissed.

This is the same guy Biden said he would pick as his ‘gun czar’ because of his extreme stance on guns during the presidential primaries, including mandatory buybacks of AR-15s.

Now that he wants to be elected to run Texas, his campaign is jackhammering Abbott over his handling of the power grid, while pretending he never said he would take people’s guns away.

Speaking to reporters, O’Rourke also took a question about his controversial stance on guns and remarks made in 2019 about taking away AR-15s and AK-47s.

“I’m not interested in taking anything from anyone. What I want to make sure that we do is defend the Second Amendment,” he said. “I want to make sure that we protect our fellow Texans far better than we’re doing right now. And that we listen to law enforcement, which Greg Abbott refused to do. He turned his back on them when he signed that permitless carry bill that endangers the lives of law enforcement in a state that’s seen more cops and sheriff’s deputies gunned down than in any other.” —KLTV

The guy even sold ‘hell yeah’ merch bragging about how he would take guns away. So the weasel who considers a border wall unjust is suddenly ‘pro-gun and backing the blue? He must really think Texan voters are dumb.

Alright, what is he trying to score points against Abbott with?

“We are all paying the price for this guy’s corruption and his incompetence,” O’Rourke told more than 200 people at a rally just east of downtown, pinning the failures of the state’s electrical grid last year on the incumbent.

…Thursday, O’Rourke doubled down, going on to say that campaign donations Abbott has received from electricity providers and gas companies were “pretty close to a bribe” given that the governor has not been more aggressive in policing them even after the freeze that killed 246 Texans.

The back-and-forth volleys follow days of the Republican governor accusing O’Rourke of lying about policy positions. Wednesday in Austin, Abbott’s campaign truck trolled an O’Rourke rally with a message board accusing O’Rourke of supporting border policies that help drug smugglers. —HoustonChronicle

Have they both forgotten that the primaries aren’t over yet, and that there are still other options on the table?

If you’re from Texas and you want to see the power grid resolved without erasing the border with Mexico, there’s still an option neither of these men are talking about.

That option would be LTC Allen West. Check him out at West4Texas.

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
