Sen. Ted Cruz ripped California Governor Gavin Newsom’s outrageous assertion this week that doctors should prescribe housing like medicine; saying you cannot “write a slip of paper” and have a house “magically appear.”
“This is the Leftist mind: write a slip of paper & a house will magically appear. Never mind that the person doesn’t have a job, the contractor can’t get a CA permit to build the house, rent control has caused a housing shortage & homeless people are crapping on the doorstep,” posted Cruz on Twitter.

Newsom left millions of users scratching their heads on social media Friday; bizarrely saying that American doctors should be allowed to “prescribe housing” like they do “insulin or antibiotics.”
“Doctors should be able to write prescriptions for housing the same way they do for insulin or antibiotics,” posted Newsom on Twitter.

“We need to start targeting social determinants of health. We need to start treating brain health like we do physical health. What’s more fundamental to a person’s well being than a roof over their head?” he asked.

CRUZ MISSILE: Ted Cruz Nukes FBI Russia Probe, Says Entire Case Based on ‘Fraudulent Evidence’
Senator Ted Cruz torched the FBI’s handling of its investigation into Russia Collusion Wednesday; saying the entire case was based on “fraudulent evidence” provided by a lawyer at the Department of Justice.
“A lawyer at the FBI creates fraudulent evidence, alters an email, that is in turn used as the basis for a sworn statement to the court that the court relies on. Am I stating that accurately?” asked Cruz.
“That is correct, that is what occurred,” replied Horowitz.
“If a private citizen did this, fabricated evidence, would that private citizen be prosecuted?” pressed Cruz.
“They’d certainly be considered for that,” stated Horowitz.

CRUZ MISSILE: Ted Cruz RIPS Dems’ Impeachment Argument, Says Schiff Simply ‘Banging the Table’
Texas Senator Ted Cruz ripped the Democrats’ ongoing impeachment charade at the US Capitol this week; saying Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler are simply “banging the table” because they don’t have facts.
“If you have the facts, you bang the facts. If you have the law, you bang the law. If you don’t have either, you bang the table. Today, we’ve seen a whole lot of table banging,” Cruz told reporters.
The Senate officially approved Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s impeachment rules after more than 12 hours of debate late Tuesday night; setting the stage for the third trial of a sitting Commander-in-Chief in US history.
“A marathon, 12-hour first day in the Senate impeachment trial against President Trump erupted into a shouting match well after midnight Wednesday morning, as Trump’s legal team unloaded on Democratic impeachment manager Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y. — in an exchange that prompted a bleary-eyed Chief Justice John Roberts to sternly admonish both sides for misconduct in the chamber,” reports Fox News.
“McConnell’s rules, which were eventually adopted in a 53-47 party-line vote at 1:40 a.m. ET Wednesday and largely mirror those from the Bill Clinton impeachment trial in 1999, permit new witnesses and documents to be considered only later on in the proceedings, after opening arguments are made,” adds Fox.
The Democrat impeachment ‘Managers’ slammed the procedures as “embarrassing.”
“It’s embarrassing,” Rep. Jerrold Nadler said. “The president is on trial in the Senate, but the Senate is on trial in the eyes of the American people. Will you vote to allow all the relevant evidence to be presented here? Or will you betray your pledge to be an impartial juror? … Will you bring Ambassador Bolton here? Will you permit us to present you with the entire record of the president’s misconduct? Or will you instead choose to be complicit in the president’s coverup? So far I’m sad to say I see a lot of senators voting for a coverup, voting to deny witnesses, an absolutely indefensible vote, obviously a treacherous vote.”
