A flashpoint may very well be on the horizon here in America, as citizens begin to count down to the midterm election of 2018.

The democrats are hoping that they can use this contest as some sort of referendum on the nation’s emotional response to the Trump presidency.  They believe that Trump’s behavior will somehow negate his successes, and that there will be an influx of Americans who vote “blue” in the coming weeks due to this.

The polls don’t exactly back this idea up – at least not currently – lending the midterms the possibility of being an enormous disappointment for the already unhinged democratic party.

Now, in another omen of the President’s popularity, a rally for Ted Cruz in the State of Texas that features the Commander in Chief has become one of the hottest tickets in town.

At least 77,000 people have signed up for President Trump’s Houston rally on Monday to support incumbent Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, who is locked in the Texas Senate battle with Democratic Congressman Beto O’Rourke. 

The Houston Chronicle reported that Houston police will be “fully mobilized” for the rally. Attendees must have tickets to enter and will be admitted in the order that they line up, the report said.

“Keep in mind that once the capacity is met, you won’t get in whether you have a ticket or not,” an officer said.

More than 77,800 people had signed up for the rally by Friday morning, according to The Chronicle. A person familiar with the event told the paper that the Trump campaign was not considering a move to a larger venue.

Texas’ Congressional race has been one of the most followed races in the country, with O’Rourke nipping at the heels of Ted Cruz after a number of millennial-appeasing stunts in which the young democrat was seen skateboarding in the parking lot of a popular cheeseburger franchise, and being featured in Thrasher Magazine in what has become an embarrassment for the former counter culture curators.

Pelosi, Capitol Police Now Bickering Over ‘Orders’ to ‘Arrest’ the Mask-less

This is getting embarrassing for Nancy…

Thankfully, the latest COVID-19 stunt by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi only took a few hours to unravel this time around. Pelosi, who has been pushing the GOP’s buttons on mask mandates for months now, used the CDC’s recent guidance adjustment to bring the facial coverings back to the House floor.  This prompted protests from a great many Republicans, and Pelosi subsequently threatened to have the Capitol Police start arresting folks who wouldn’t comply. The Capitol Police were not exactly on board with that idea. https://twitter.com/CapitolPolice/status/1420810728387264517?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1420810728387264517%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fpolitics%2Fcapitol-police-ordered-arrest-staff-visitors-not-wearing-masks A response from the speaker followed. Pelosi’s office said she did not order police to begin arresting people because it’s not within her power. “The speaker of the House does not control the U.S. Capitol Police,” Pelosi spokesperson Drew Hammill told Fox News.  “We were unaware of the memo until it was reported in the press.” The embarrassing incident comes amid a flurry of criticisms of Pelosi’s handling of the Congressional mask policy, and likely marks yet another milestone in the decline of Nancy Pelosi’s speakership.

Capitol Police Ordered to Arrest Those Who Refuse Mask Mandate

Is Pelosi exploiting the Capitol Police to antagonize the GOP?

The COVID-19 pandemic has once again become a major piece of the American political landscape in 2021, as a new variant of the once-waning virus now threatens to set back herd immunity by several months or more. And while this is certainly not good news, there are still concerns that the Democratic Party is still taking this whole thing a bit too seriously, possibly in an attempt to virtue-signal their way into the hearts of young liberals everywhere. Their latest militant maneuver is being slathered in criticism, however. U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) were ordered to start arresting visitors and staff who refuse to wear a mask on the House side of the Capitol complex starting Thursday, according to a police memo issued by new USCP Chief Thomas Manger that was obtained by a member of Congress. Police were also advised not to arrest members of Congress for failing to wear masks but to report the lawmakers’ noncompliance to the House sergeant-at-arms, the memo says. It didn’t take long for a backlash to erupt. Rep. Kat Cammack, R-Fla., got a copy of the memo distributed at Thursday’s morning roll call from an unnamed police officer, she told Fox News. Police she’s spoken to are “very uncomfortable” with this new directive that Cammack describes as “tyrannical.” “This is such an overstep of Speaker Pelosi’s authority to basically make our Capitol Police arrest staff members and report on members [of Congress],” Cammack told Fox News Thursday. “It’s absolutely unconscionable that this is where we’re at.” The move comes just a day after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s comments on possible mask requirements prompted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to call him a “moron”.
