Bad News For Blue Wave? Trump Can’t Find Venue Big Enough For Houston Rally With Senator Ted Cruz

Published

on

Texas is a red state, but Democrats have been crowing a lot about how they’re going to turn it blue.

Dems have dumped millions into Robert Francis O’Rourke’s (aka Beto O’Rourke) campaign hoping to take out Lone Star State icon, Senator Ted Cruz.

Apparently, so many have signed up to see Trump campaign with Cruz, they can’t find a venue large enough to hold everyone. That’s good news for Cruz, and Repubs, and bad news for the supposed ‘Blue Wave.”

Gateway Pundit is reporting:

President Trump is unable to find a location where he can hold all his followers that want to see him and Senator Ted Cruz in Houston, Texas.
The Texas Tribune reported that the original site that President Trump set up for the rally in Houston is too small so they found a bigger venue –

President Donald Trump’s rally Monday in Houston with U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz has been moved to a bigger venue.

Originally set to take place at the NRG Arena, the event will now be held at the Toyota Center, Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale announced in a tweet Thursday afternoon, describing the demand for tickets as “HUGE and unprecedented.” The Toyota Center can hold about twice as many people as NRG Arena — roughly 10,000 versus 19,000.

Trump set expectations high set two months ago, when he announced he would come to Texas in October to hold a rally with Cruz at the “biggest stadium we can find.”

The Toyota Center is the home of the professional basketball team, the Houston Rockets. This was the largest venue that the President could find that was available for the event with Senator Cruz. But now it looks like even this won’t be enough.

According to FOX News

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.

The Trump rallies are bigger than rock concerts! This one, with backup Senator Ted Cruz, is surpassing Woodstock!

Rutgers Professor Who ‘Hates All White People’ Cleared of Discrimination Charge

A tenured history professor at Rutgers University has been cleared of any wrongdoing and discrimination charges after he said he hates all white people.

Of course, if he said that about any other race, he’d have already lost his job while liberals would be calling for his head.

From Fox News:

Rutgers University on Wednesday reversed its previous finding that a professor violated the school’s discrimination and harassment policy after he said he “hates white people” in a social media post.

History professor James Livingston made national headlines in May after he complained about a restaurant in Harlem being “overrun with little Caucasian a—holes who know their parents will approve of anything they do.”

“I hereby resign from my race. F— these people. Yeah, I know, it’s about access to my dinner. F— you, too,” Livingston wrote on his personal Facebook account.

Livingston, a tenured professor, has taught at the university since 1988, according to NorthJersey.com.

The controversial comments prompted an investigation by the Office of Employment Equity (OEE), which found in July that Livingston violated school policy. He faced disciplinary action and potential discharge, according to a press release from Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) — a First Amendment advocacy group representing Livingston.

Livingston argued that his remarks were “satirical,” and he was commenting on the gentrification of the Harlem neighborhood, where he lives, NorthJersey.com reported

FIRE appealed the decision on Livingston’s behalf, claiming he has the right to his opinion as a private citizen. The appeal was denied, according to the press release.

The organization then sent University President Robert L. Barchi a letter arguing the ruling “poses a serious threat to the academic freedom of Rutgers faculty and impermissibly hinders their ability to fulfill their essential role in our democracy.”

Barchi ordered the OEE to reevaluate its decision, noting that while the language is offensive, “few values are as important to the University as the protection of our First Amendment rights—even when the speech we are protecting is insensitive and reckless,” according to a press release from FIRE.

Rutgers informed Livingston on Wednesday of the reversal, which concluded that the professor did not violate school policy.

“I’m relieved that my right to free speech and my academic freedom have been validated by this retraction, thanks to FIRE, the AAUP, and colleagues, who made this strange episode an issue to be debated and decided in public,” Livingston said in a statement. “But if I may use the occasion to preach . . . As a tenured professor, I have resources and protections that are unavailable to most employees. That is not just unfortunate, it is simply wrong, and needs redressing.” …

Did the university make the right call in this case?

Since Trump was elected, death threats against the president are now all the rage on the left.

From Twitchy:

Paul Krugman made fun of President Trump for being afraid for his life when visiting a combat zone. Granted, this tidbit came from an unnamed ‘former senior White House official’ who may or may not even exist but hey, Krugman couldn’t pass up the opportunity to paint Trump as a coward.

Umm maybe Krugman missed it but it’s not a stretch to say Trump is right about psychos wishing him harm (see further down in this story).

Stay classy, Krugman.

Nah, he’s too busy dunking on Trump for fearing for his life.

And if you want to see classy, just look at the vile garbage on this thread:

And they wonder why we refuse to give up our guns.

Fascinating how they don’t understand their very behavior is part of the reason Trump fears for his life.

Progressives. *eye roll*
