Body Language Expert Analyzes Beto’s Hand Gestures

Body language expert Raymond Arroyo joined Fox News’ Laura Ingraham to discuss the meaning behind 2020 Democratic presidential nomination candidate Beto O’Rourke’s wild hand motions. Here is what he had to say.

Beto’s gestures really tell us a lot about him as a person. There is something that’s at play here Laura. He beats out every word. But I’m going to tell you what’s happening psychologically beneath the surface. He is a very inarticulate guy and he’s straining for the words, so he’s using the gestures to fill the pauses. He’s almost trying to summon the next word out because this fills the gap…He has very halting speech, he’s unsure of how he’s communicating and he’s obviously not confident in what’s coming out of his mouth…It’s like a war happening between what he is saying and what his body is doing. It’s fascinating, I watched hours of this today.

 

 

Students globally protest warming, pleading for their future

The Associated Press reported on the student protest over global warming with the headline above. The author obviously feels quite strongly about the issue. Here is an excerpt from the story, complete with a quote from an indoctrinated eight-year-old who might remind you of the children who paid a visit to Dianne Feinstein last month to lobby for the Green New Deal.

“Students across a warming globe pleaded for their lives, future and planet Friday, demanding tough action on climate change.

From the South Pacific to the edge of the Arctic Circle, angry students in more than 100 countries walked out of classes to protest what they see as the failures by their governments.

Well more than 150,000 students and adults who were mobilized by word of mouth and social media protested in Europe, according to police estimates. But the initial turnout in the United States did not look quite as high.

“Borders, languages and religions do not separate us,” eight-year-old Havana Chapman-Edwards, who calls herself the tiny diplomat, told hundreds of protesters at the U.S. Capitol. “Today we are telling the truth and we do not take no for an answer.”

Reuters’ Reporter Reveals That Beto O’Rourke Was A Computer Hacker In His Teens:

Instapundit’s Glenn Reynolds tell us to “just think of the media as Democratic Party operatives with bylines, and it all makes sense.”

“How Reuters uncovered Beto O’Rourke’s teenage hacking days…Members of the group, which calls itself Cult of the Dead Cow, protected O’Rourke’s secret for decades, reluctant to compromise the former Texas Congressman’s political career. After more than a year of reporting, Menn persuaded O’Rourke to talk on the record. In an interview in late 2017, O’Rourke acknowledged that he was a member of the group, on the understanding that the information would not be made public until after his Senate race against Ted Cruz in November 2018.”
