Op-Ed: Trump’s vision prevailed over Beto’s in El Paso

In the City of El Paso, two visions for the future of Texas and the future of America were on display, that of President Trump and that of former Congressman Robert Francis O’Rourke.

The President’s vision is based on reality and action; the other is based on myths and knee-jerk emotional reactions.

“We believe in the American Constitution and our great rule of law; we believe in the dignity of work and the sanctity of life; we believe that faith and family, not government and bureaucracy, are the center of the American way,” President Trump told the people of El Paso at his rally Monday night. “We believe in religious liberty, the right to free speech, and the right to keep and bear arms. We believe that children should be taught to love our country, honor our incredible history, and always respect our great American flag. We believe that the first duty of government is to be loyal to its citizens, and we live by the words of our national motto… In God We Trust.”

In addition to listing the fundamental American values shared by Republicans and loathed by the extremist Democrat Party, the also President highlighted, in vivid and compelling terms, the urgent humanitarian and security crisis on the border, vowing that the wall will be built to protect American communities.

“This weekend some Democrats even proposed a measure that would force the release of thousands of criminal illegal aliens,” he noted, rattling off a series of shocking statistics on the thousands of violent criminals currently in ICE custody, “including dangerous felons convicted of rape, sex trafficking, violent assault, and even murder.”

“Beto,” on the other hand, pretended that there is absolutely no crisis on the border at all, accusing President Trump of “hatred and intolerance” for wanting to build the wall.

Of course, he also ignored the fact that President Trump is not against legal immigration, and only wants to stop people from cutting in line without going through the legal process.

There’s nothing in his self-indulgent protest rally that we haven’t already seen from Robert O’Rourke, who showed us he will still drone on at length about the plight of foreigners who are caught trying to evade our law enforcement and infiltrate our country, yet won’t so much as a make a phone call to American families from his own district who have lost loved ones to illegal alien crime.

He even made a call for full-scale amnesty, saying, “Make every single one them [Dreamers] U.S. citizens…and let’s make sure that their parents…have a path to citizenship.”

He insisted that illegal aliens are harmless, but then ignored the fact that his allies in Congress are pushing to force the government to release thousands of illegal aliens with criminal records from DHS custody into our communities.

In fact, he dismissed the whole idea that criminals are coming over our border at all, saying, “You know who we are apprehending? Kids, children…if they’re lucky, with their moms or their dads.”

In contrast, during the real rally Monday night in El Paso, President Trump delivered honest talk about the urgent crisis that demands a real, workable solution to secure the border.

O’Rourke can hand wave all he wants about how mean President Trump is, but he can’t deny that border walls have worked wonderfully in his own home town, and he can’t charm his way out of the fact that 89 percent of our Border Patrol agents agree with President Trump that more physical barriers are needed to secure hundreds more miles of strategic sections of the border.

There were two visions on display in El Paso: President Trump’s sincere desire to protect America, and Robert O’Rourke’s superficial appeal to the far-left Democrat base — and if the crowd sizes at the dueling rallies were any indication, the people of Texas stand firmly behind the winning vision of Donald Trump.

  • Excellent article. All Little bobby Francis is, is a socialist trust fund millennial.

    • God bless America. Thanks for sharing how you feel about this topic. Many Americans have died on the battlefield so that all of us could have back and forth discussion where we both agree to disagree. I am grateful that we have our freedoms and would hope that if we were both elected members of Congress we could sit down as honorable Americans and find a solution to our differences. We need to pray for the United States of America. We need a kinder and more gentler America not one where we insult others we don’t agree with.

      Next time you have a chance put a tiny blue light on a wall with all the lights off and walk away as far as you can. Imagine that the tiny blue dot in the darkness is the earth and you are in deep space.

      “Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar,” every “supreme leader,” every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there-on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

      The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot.

      Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.

      The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand.

      It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.”
      Carl Sagan

      • Don’t forget that Donald BONE SPUR Trump is a coward draft dodger that don’t believe in climate change.
        Trump cherish the Russian bear.

        • This is coming from a guy that got chucked out of the Navy for drug use??

        • what are you besides lame and stupid like uour comment! Haters like you are pathetic and MOST Americans ate SICK of your Hate Trump Destroy America crap so shut up babykiller pedophile supporter! Your kind is quickly disolving awaybecause Trump has proved himself and Dems have reared their demonic evil head and we all see the truth now more than ever! Murder newborn babies like its your diner! We have had it with the demonic libturds! Disgusting enemy to USA!

          • I didn’t even see this one! clearly the harlot post over at the KVIA KKK forum,she can’t even spell,is she high on crack like mad mike?

  • Wait a minute! Did she use “honest” and “Trump” in the same sentence? Thanks, EPHP, for allowing the idiot contingent to have fair representation in your publication. 😉

    • So says another leftist drone

  • Same old Daily Caller soundbites…can’t come up with anymore substance than the President can…typical.

    • He’s mad mike aka mikey,the white nationalist that post over at the KVIA forum along with his Ku Klux Klan brothers in arms! Soundbites and attacks is all he knows, a typical Army reject that remained in El Paso,since he couldn’t return back to wherever it came from.
      Never heard of this stooge, Mica Mosbacher,but just reading her profile is bad and sad enough! a brainwashed leftover from Fox.Bet she got her degree from Trump University and passed with a flying grade of F-. She must be runner up to Ann Coulter, Jeanine Pirro and Laura Ingraham as to who makes America laugh the hardest.
      The world laughs at Donald Trump 24/7,the only friends that Trump has is Saudi crown prince,Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong Un. Rudy Giuliani had to recuse himself again till he can come back on TV and lie again for Trump.
      Those in attendance at Trump’s Hate rally on Monday in the coliseum were chanting,LOCK HER UP!
      these despicables can’t figure out that Clinton is not under criminal investigation! But Donald Trump is in a lot of trouble with his ongoing criminal investigation. He nominated Brett Kavanaugh for the supreme court justice job, for one purpose only! to give him a get out of jail free pass.
      Then he appointed Matthew Whitaker as his acting attorney general to spy on special counsel criminal investigator,Robert Mueller. And William Barr another republican senate confirmed, saying Trump”can’t be indicted” sitting duck in the swamp cesspool!
      Yes he can be indicted, wait and see.
      November 2020 is only 21 months away before the big blue tsunami comes crashing the white conical hood shape republican tent.
      If they didn’t learn their lessons from the 2018 midterm elections to abandon the Titanic Trump, this will teach them right for sure.

  • Fox News much?

  • The bottom line is this! only 6,500 fit inside the county coliseum,period! El Paso Fire Department!!! and if Donald Trump sold more tickets than the allowed capacity.That means that he ripped Y’ALL OFF if you had to stand outside, what did Y’ALL think, that you were going to watch the Super Bowl and get free Trumpy bears? Trump didn’t even give you those trumpy bears you see on TV, what a joke.
    Do you at least get a refund? NOPE! you got hosed by the con artist, he sure knows a fool when he sees a fool. And in El Paso,most of the fools live on the westside of town.6,500 of them and the fools that waited outside the coliseum for nothing other than the fussy end of the lollipop.

    • Tickets were free you Moron!

      • Yeah and you probably still didn’t get inside the coliseum, they wouldn’t allow you in with your crack pipe you right wing POS! trumpTURD! you don’t have a life you crack baby stooge.

      • So that’s you’re name, scum? the free loader…..

        • Free loader? How exactly I am a free loader based on me calling you a Moron? It’ the liberals that want a free ride for everyone. Republicans have jobs. You should be calling me psychic since I have accurately identified you as a moron base on one post. Die hard liberals are so entertaining and so predictable….and so stupid!

          • Tone down Jerry, the original Maggot! you dumb nut job! I call you psychotic insane serial stooge….

  • Thanks for letting us know that your guest columnist is a Trump surrogate. Does she genuinely believe in what
    she says, or is she just doing what she is told to do?

    • That’s ridiculous. Told what to say by who? Most Trump supporters believed in what he is saying BEFORE he started saying it. Take your hatred elsewhere Rick.

      • There is no hatred in my comment. Believe what you want it’s a free country thanks to all those who sacrificed for our freedoms.

  • Its sad when even Republicans confirm that Trump’s stats are fake. If you lived in El paso since the 2000’s you know that all the crap he is spewing is in fact exactly what it is, crap. The service men of El Paso which are police men, sheriff deputies, firemen, Emt’s, border patrol, made this city the safe place it has continued to be since 2000 not a wall. Trump followers are blind sheep following a cartoon character that are yes backing the Republican ideals but putting an inconsiderate, non humble, racist backing, hate supporting monster on a pedalstool. Growing up republican this clown has me sad of what the republican party would allow to use as our spokesman. Where are the values that were placed on us as children, sorely lacking on what is supposed to be our world leader. I am so ashamed for us and cant blame other countries for hating the U.S. based on what we have elected to represent us.

    • Feel free to move to Venezuela, loser!

  • Go back to Kansas Dorthy!? you low wage Trump deplorable.I’ll even pay for your bus fare.

    • You can’t afford bus fare, being an unemployed welfare mooch living in Section Eight housing on the east side.

      • You can’t afford to walk back to Kansas because you have fake bone spurs on your fat skull bonehead! I have more money coming in from my government pension alone than you’ll ever have in your entire life.
        You are just a dirty white racist boy,jealous that you didn’t get very far in life,due to your own laziness,and miserable life Mad Mide! it must suck to be you. You filthy thing….

      • What’s section eight got to do with your trailer trash court standard of living profile mad mike!? You can’t afford refrigerated air, swimming pool and food to feed the homeless cats outside? Since they might become your own competition! The cats outside eat better than you do,and you claim to be on your second career, and shining shoes don’t bring you that much income does it?
