    Beto Belonged To Infamous Hacking Group And Wrote Murder Fantasy About Running Over Children

    Some things you might know about Beto O’Rourke, the former Texas congressman who just entered the race for president:

    • The Democratic contender raised a record amount for a U.S. Senate race in 2018 and almost beat the incumbent in a Republican stronghold, without hiding his support for gun control and Black Lives Matter protests on the football field.

    • When he was younger, he was arrested on drunk-driving charges and played in a punk band. Now 46, he still skateboards.

    • The charismatic politician with the Kennedy smile is liberal on some issues and libertarian on others, which could allow him to cross the country’s political divide.

    One thing you didn’t know: While a teenager, O’Rourke acknowledged in an exclusive interview, he belonged to the oldest group of computer hackers in U.S. history.

    The hugely influential Cult of the Dead Cow, jokingly named after an abandoned Texas slaughterhouse, is notorious for releasing tools that allowed ordinary people to hack computers running Microsoft’s Windows. It’s also known for inventing the word “hacktivism” to describe human-rights-driven security work.

    Members of the group have protected O’Rourke’s secret for decades, reluctant to compromise his political viability. Now, in a series of interviews, CDC members have acknowledged O’Rourke as one of their own. In all, more than a dozen members of the group agreed to be named for the first time in a book about the hacking group by this reporter that is scheduled to be published in June by Public Affairs. O’Rourke was interviewed early in his run for the Senate.

    There is no indication that O’Rourke ever engaged in the edgiest sorts of hacking activity, such as breaking into computers or writing code that enabled others to do so. But his membership in the group could explain his approach to politics better than anything on his resume. His background in hacking circles has repeatedly informed his strategy as he explored and subverted established procedures in technology, the media and government.

    “There’s just this profound value in being able to be apart from the system and look at it critically and have fun while you’re doing it,” O’Rourke said. “I think of the Cult of the Dead Cow as a great example of that.”

    An ex-hacker running for national office would have been unimaginable just a few years ago. But that was before two national elections sent people from other nontraditional backgrounds to the White House and Congress, many of them vowing to blow up the status quo.

    Arguably, there has been no better time to be an American politician rebelling against business as usual. Still, it’s unclear whether the United States is ready for a presidential contender who, as a teenager, stole long-distance phone service for his dial-up modem, wrote a murder fantasy in which the narrator drives over children on the street, and mused about a society without money.

    O’Rourke was a misfit teen in El Paso, Texas, in the 1980s when he decided to seek out bulletin board systems – the online discussion forums that at the time were the best electronic means for connecting people outside the local school, church and neighborhood.

    “When Dad bought an Apple IIe and a 300-baud modem and I started to get on boards, it was the Facebook of its day,” he said. “You just wanted to be part of a community.”

    O’Rourke soon started his own board, TacoLand, which was freewheeling and largely about punk music. “This was the counterculture: Maximum Rock & Roll [magazine], buying records by catalog you couldn’t find at record stores,” he said.

    He then connected with another young hacker in the more conservative Texas city of Lubbock who ran a bulletin board called Demon Roach Underground. Known online as Swamp Rat, Kevin Wheeler had recently moved from a university town in Ohio and was having problems adjusting to life in Texas.

    Like O’Rourke, Wheeler said, he was hunting for video games that had been “cracked,” or stripped from digital rights protections, so that he could play them for free on his Apple. Also like O’Rourke, Wheeler wanted to find other teens who enjoyed the same things, and to write and share funny and profane stories that their parents and conservative neighbors wouldn’t appreciate. It was good-natured resistance to the repressive humdrum around them, a sort of “Footloose” for those just discovering the new world of computers.

    Wheeler and a friend named the Cult of the Dead Cow after an eerie hangout, a shut-down Lubbock slaughterhouse – the unappealing hind part of Texas’ iconic cattle industry. Most CDC members kept control of their own bulletin boards while referring visitors to one another’s and distributing the CDC’s own branded essays, called text files or t-files.

    At the time, people connected to bulletin boards by dialing in to the phone lines through a modem. Heavy use of long-distance modem calls could add up to hundreds of dollars a month. Savvy teens learned techniques for getting around the charges, such as using other people’s phone-company credit card numbers and five-digit calling codes to place free calls.

    O’Rourke didn’t say what techniques he used. Like thousands of others, though, he said he pilfered long-distance service “so I wouldn’t run up the phone bill.”

    Under Texas law, stealing long-distance service worth less than $1,500 is a misdemeanor, punishable by a fine. More than that is a felony, and could result in jail time. It is unclear whether O’Rourke topped that threshold. In any event, the state bars prosecution of the offense for those under 17, as O’Rourke was for most of his active time in the group, and the statute of limitations is five years. Two Cult of the Dead Cow contemporaries in Texas who were caught misusing calling cards as minors got off with warnings.

    O’Rourke handed off control of his own board when he moved east for boarding school, and he said he stopped participating on the hidden CDC board after he enrolled at Columbia University at age 18.

    Hana Callaghan, a government specialist at Santa Clara University’s Markkula Center for Applied Ethics, said that voters might want to consider both the gravity of any candidate’s offenses and the person’s age at the time.

    Among the questions voters should ask, she said: “What was the violation? Was it egregious? What does it say about their character – do they believe the rules don’t apply to them?” If substantial time has passed, she added, voters should decide whether the person “learned the error of their ways and no longer engages in those kind of behavior.”

    When he was a teen, O’Rourke also frequented sites that offered cracked software. The bulletin boards were “a great way to get cracked games,” O’Rourke said, adding that he later realized his habit wasn’t morally defensible and stopped.

    Using pirated software violates copyright laws, attorneys say, but in practice, software companies have rarely sued young people over it. When they do go after someone, it is typically an employer with workers using multiple unlicensed copies. Software providers are more interested in those who break the protections and spread their wares.

    CDC wasn’t of that ilk. Although some CDC essays gave programming and hacking instructions, in the late 1980s, the group was more about writing than it was about breaking into computer systems.

    But its focus on creative expression didn’t mean there were no grounds for controversy. Like many an underground newspaper, the Cult of the Dead Cow avidly pursued it.

    A CDC member who joined in the early 1990s had previously used real instructions for making a pipe bomb to joke about shedding pounds by losing limbs. Three teenagers in Montreal found the file, and one lost two fingers after he tried to follow the formula, prompting outrage.

    Rather than remove similar posts and hide the group’s history, the CDC warned readers not to take the files literally and added a disclaimer that survives on its current web page: “Warning: This site may contain explicit descriptions of or advocate one or more of the following: adultery, murder, morbid violence, bad grammar, deviant sexual conduct in violent contexts, or the consumption of alcohol and illegal drugs.”

    O’Rourke and his old friends say his stint as a fledgling hacker fed into his subsequent work in El Paso as a software entrepreneur and alternative press publisher, which led in turn to successful long-shot runs at the city council and then Congress, where he unseated an incumbent Democrat.

    Politically, O’Rourke has taken some conventional liberal positions, supporting abortion rights and opposing a wall on the Mexican border. But he takes a libertarian view on other issues, faulting excessive regulation and siding with businesses in congressional votes on financial industry oversight and taxes.

    His more conservative positions have drawn fire from Democrats who see him as too friendly with Republicans and corporations. His more progressive votes and punk-rock past helped his recent opponent, Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, portray O’Rourke as too radical for socially conservative Texas.

    Visions From The Last Crusade

    by Psychedelic Warlord

    >>> A CULT Publication......1988 <<<
    -cDc- CULT OF THE DEAD COW -cDc-
    __________________________________________________ _____________________________


    The catacombs of my head produce the most wonderful dreams and visions.
    I feel that I am one with my intellect and my soul. It was during these
    dreams and visions that I concocted a notion. It started as something
    small at first, but after every dream it grew stronger, until the urge
    had become too great. No longer could this strong desire in my mind be
    suppressed. Recognizing this fact, my one and only goal in life became
    the termination of everything that was free and loving
    . Only I could
    realize the true value of loving and expression. Only in my dreams.

    This feeling pervaded everything in my life, yet the first few months
    after realizing my goal, I had done nothing. Then one day, as I was
    driving home from work, I noticed two children crossing the street. They
    were happy, happy to be free from their troubles
    . I knew, however, that
    this happiness and sense of freedom were much too overwhelming for them.
    This happiness was mine by right. I had earned it in my dreams. As I
    neared the young ones, I put all my weight on my right foot, keeping
    the accelerator pedal on the floor until I heard the crashing of the
    two children on the hood, and then the sharp cry of pain from one of
    the two
    . I was so fascinated for a moment, that when after I had stopped
    my vehicle, I just sat in a daze, sweet visions filling my head. My
    dream was abruptly ended when I heard a loud banging on the front
    window. It was an old man, who was using his cane to awaken me. He might
    have been a witness to my act of love. I was not sure, nor did I care.
    It was simply ecstasy. As I drove home, I envisioned myself committing
    more of these "acts of love", and after a while, I had no trouble carrying them out
    .

    The more people I killed, the longer my dreams were. I soon quit my job,
    and stayed at my house in an almost comatose state. My dreams grew longer
    and more vivid. They kept me alive and proved to be the only thing
    to live for. I had killed nearly 38 people by the time of my twenty-third
    birthday, and each one was more fulfilling than the last
    .

    I was never really surprised at how I evaded the police. My dreams
    had taken over my life, and they guided me through the right path, and
    I never had need for fear of police. Or anything, for that matter.

    Being a misfit, you know he hung around other misfits. I bet some of them might be willing to dish some dirt for a few shillings.

    Friend, you cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. And what one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government can't give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody.

    Here he is in his goat-head band pic. The media tries to steer the conversation away from Satanism. Look for these pics now as they will surely be scrubbed soon.

    Fits right in with the infanticide-loving Dems.

    What a profoundly weird and disturbed individual...

    I don’t care what Robert did in the past. He has about as much chance of winning the nomination as I have of taking flight by hopping up and down flapping my arms.

    He's a dim-o-crap. Not a word will be said.
    I don't want to. I'm not going to. You can't make me. I'm retired!

    Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    If the mere accusation of drunken impropriety on Justice Kavanaugh as a young adult was enough to derail him from the supreme court [according to the left] then this verifiable evidence of what Beto did as a young adult should be enough to disqualify him from being nominated by the Dems. But then again they seem able to not detect that kind of hypocrisy among their own.

    These accsations are enough to keep him from running for any government office.
    Looks like someone learned from the past and did a good deal of digging

    If you do that next to a steep cliff, you will eventually be successful. :-)

    That’s because impropriety in a conservative is a fatal flaw, but in a Marxist it’s a resume enhancer.

    Although not complete proof, Beto O'rourke confirms the continued understanding that all democrats are sick-in-the-head psychopathic morons.

    I don't know Dennis..... I said the same thing about bill Clinton and Obama...….'no chance in hell'...….'they' have to decide who to shove down our throats next...…

    Please note the mass scandal in the VA government...…..

    ….no wait, it isn't there anymore...….it's gone.....no news is good news.

    You should also note no one is calling for anyone's removal now either, move along nothing to see here.

    It will be, or is, the same with Robert.

    Reminds me of "lock her up".

    ‘Wax My Ass, Scrub My Balls’ — This Beto O’Rourke Poem From 1988 Is Beyond Belief

    3:43 PM 03/15/2019
    Scott Morefield

    Beto O’Rourke’s recently unearthed membership in the hacking group “Cult of the Dead Cow” may not have included the “edgiest sorts of hacking activity,” but it did, apparently, include writing murder fantasies and exceptionally bad poetry.

    Writing under the now-exposed pseudonym “Psychedelic Warlord,” a teen-aged O’Rourke appears to be the author of a poem titled “The Song of the Cow,” published in 1988 by “cDc (Cult of the Dead Cow) communications.”

    “I need a butt-shine,” the poem begins … and it really all just goes downhill from there:
    I need a butt-shine,
    Right now
    You are holy,
    Oh, sacred Cow
    I thirst for you,
    Provide Milk.
    Buff my balls,
    Love the Cow,
    Good fortune for those that do.
    Love me, breathe my feet,
    The Cow has risen.
    Wax my ass,
    Scrub my balls.
    The Cow has risen,
    Provide Milk.
    The poem, for better or for worse, has been preserved forever by the Google Wayback Machine as a part of the group’s former website, cultdeadcow.com. Here’s a screengrab of the entire poem:



    The Song of the Cow (screengrab)

    O’Rourke, who launched his 2020 presidential campaign Thursday, also reportedly wrote several disturbing pieces under the “Psychedelic Warlord” pseudo, including one in which the narrator fantasized about using his vehicle to run over children.

    The Daily Caller has reached out to O’Rourke for comment and will update this story if a response is provided.

    This^^^^^^^

    Minorities by race, life style and religion along with the whole gender oppression thing have no interest in any semblance of a White male no matter how apologetic they are in being a candidate for the presidency in their hate filled party......and 1/124 Hispanic doesn't count as part of the oppressed either......

    You can be damn sure the Demo-socialist "I don't realize I'm a commie yet" party will push in every manner for a minority race.............female gender............non-Christian world view as their candidate....

    From a 90% White Christian nation in 1960 to 61% by 2017 and more profoundly only 49.5% of the school population in K-12 assures you that the "progressive" party will be progressive with their demographic forecasting.......

    Just for the record I'll go down stated that 2020 may be the last chance for a White male president........

    .....and from there we might as well try to elect a horse to the position as was once done to the Senate in Rome during its fall........
