Ted Cruz warns that the Republicans are in deep trouble in 2018.

Oh God, we are so screwed.
Courtesy of Raw Story: 

Traveling the state for GOP events this weekend, Cruz portrayed an uncertain midterm environment that could go down as disastrous for Republicans if they don’t work to counteract Democratic energy throughout the country. Cruz has spent previous election cycles airing similar warnings against GOP complacency in ruby-red Texas, but this time it hits much closer to home for him — he is facing a well-funded re-election challenge from U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-El Paso. 

Addressing the Fort Bend County GOP on Friday night, Cruz warned of an “incredible volatility in politics right now,” calling Democrats “stark-raving nuts” in their opposition to Trump. He pointed to Trump’s recent State of the Union address and Democrats’ reluctance to applaud, saying the scene “underscores the political risk in November.” 

“Let me tell you right now: The left is going to show up,” Cruz said, delivering the keynote address at the party’s Lincoln Reagan Dinner. “They will crawl over broken glass in November to vote.” Cruz is feeling the heat in his own bid for a second term. O’Rourke, who has sworn off money from political action committees, outraised 

Cruz in the last three months of 2017, $2.4 million to $1.9 million. It was the second quarter in which O’Rourke’s haul was bigger than that of Cruz, who still maintains a healthy cash-on-hand advantage.

I think Ted Cruz is confusing "stark raving nuts" with  "demonstrably patriotic" in our opposition of Putin's puppet.

Remember that Ted Cruz was carried to his victory by Tea Party anger at an imagined assault on our democracy, and yet he is surprised by the Left's very appropriate response to a very real assault on our democracy?

Methinks that somebody needs to step outside of the Fox News and right wing talk radio bubble.

      "a hard-hitting political advocacy organization that is taking the fight to the home districts of the worst Republican members of Congress. We are placing billboards in prominent locations, and we make no apologies for calling out sitting members for their hypocrisy, criminality, racism and dangerous support of Trump."

    Robert "Beto" O'Rourke, is a native Texan as is his wife. Beto has been holding town halls across the whole state of Texas and is giving people a chance to voice their worries, concerns, wants, and hopes. Beto has not just been hitting the large cities for these town halls but has been in a multitude of small communities instead of hiding from the people like Cruz. I am working on his campaign as a volunteer, I've hosted a BBQ to raise money, and have recruited others. Beto is right for Texas and I do believe that Cruz is just about equally disliked across the political aisle and I do know a few republicans that will be voting for Beto. If you don't have a race in your state, a small donation could make a huge difference in taking back a Senate seat and turning it blue.

    'The social media site Gab' "The company announced that it had raised $5 million last week from more than 1,000 investors, and has a series of plans for the upcoming year. According to VentureBeat these include a marketing campaign on sites like Breitbart and DrudgeReport, a redesigned site and content creators who’ve been ‘red-pilled’. Gab’s founder, Andrew Torba, also wants to “Buy ads in San Francisco just to troll Big Tech.” "aims to offer an alternative to mainstream platforms like Facebook and Twitter which have been accused of censoring free speech and having too much market domination in Silicon Valley."
    "Gab claims to be simply providing a free speech-friendly platform, the reality is that it has come to exist as a safe space for far-right figures who have been banned from other platforms. The site first came to prominence after the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, which prompted many tech companies to crack down on accounts or websites promoting hatred online. But in contrast, Gab saw a surge in donations which saw it raise $1 million – $500,000 of it in the five days after Charlottesville."
    "Andrew Anglin, an avowed neo-Nazi and founder of the white supremacist website the Daily Stormer. Anglin is currently in hiding to prevent being served with notices over the several lawsuits he is currently embroiled in. Despite this, he still posts regularly on Gab."
    " Torba claimed that it was a conspiracy by Silicon Valley “robber barons” and corrupt officials to repress his free speech." " the far-right continues to make its own platforms, like Hatreon and GoyFundMe, which have allowed it to continue to fund and propagate hate."

    He is just mad because he didn't have a chance to shut down the government again for no reason.

      At least Cruz was able to prove he could read decently (unlike a certain President I could mention). And his rendition of "Green Eggs and Ham" for the Senate Record wasn't bad.

      I think it would be great if Beto would slap his face with that little act of governmental shutdown by playing parts of that at his campaign rallies, reminding his listeners that it was Cruz alone (by playing out the clock) who shut down the government that time.

      I'll add a few bucks of my own to his fund.

  12. Wish it but doubt it. No way Dems getting the Senate. Maybe the House but doesn’t look that great there either. Toss up there. So no way Dotard Don gonna get impeached. Best can be done is to hold him like Obama was.
