Garcetti Defends Cruz

LA Mayor and possible dem 2020 Presidential Candidate Eric Garcetti says he’s no fan of Ted Cruz, but the heckling the Senator received the other day was uncalled for. Garcetti says people need to be decent, and they need to lay off public figures when they’re out and about with their family. But he also got a few digs in on Trump, saying the Commander in Chief’s language was “laughable” at the United Nations on Tuesday.

Antifa Threatens Cruz On Twitter

Hot on the heels of running Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife out of a D.C. restaurant while screaming “we believe survivors,” a branch of the left-wing Antifa group issued a threat to the Texas Republican. Along with a recording of the restaurant mob scene, Smash Racism DC tweeted that Cruz is “not safe” and that his votes are “hate crimes.” That’s an apparent reference to a zero tolerance immigration policy by the Trump administration that separated illegal alien families over the summer. But the left-wing mob, in true mob form, is seemingly unaware that Cruz proposed legislation to keep illegal immigrant families together.

—QUOTABLE: “No — you can’t eat in peace — your politics are an attack on all of us You’re [sic] votes are a death wish. Your votes are hate crimes.” -Tweet by Smash Racism DC

—QUOTABLE: “This is a message to Ted Cruz, Bret [sic] Kavanaugh, Donald Trump and the rest of the racist, sexist, transphobic, and homophobic right-wing scum: You are not safe. We will find you. We will expose you. We will take from you the peace you have taken from so many others.” -Another Smash Racism DC tweet

Subpoena Mess

If Democrats gain majorities in the House and Senate they plan to flood not only PRESIDENT TRUMP but his cabinet members and business associates with subpoenas for personal and financial records that could bog down the administration headed into the 2020 elections.
Democrats have already amassed dozens of oversight requests that have been ignored while Republicans hold the majorities but should that change in November Democrats would gain a number of tools to stall the Trump Agenda over the next two years.
The never-ending stream of outrage at the Trump administration presents a real danger to Trump not only politically but personally as Dems will seek any measure to diminish any lasting legacy.
