    A group of Canadian Israel supporters who were violently beaten last week by a crowd shouting anti-Semitic slurs said they continue to be bullied on the Internet and in the media by those who claim that they were looking for a fight. A family of six pro-Israel supporters demonstrating in downtown Calgary was assaulted late Friday by a crowd of around 100 protestors who were demonstrating against Israel’s military action in the Gaza Strip. The victims said they were just trying to express their support for Israel when an angry mob of pro-Palestinian demonstrators surrounded them, began shouting anti-Semitic slogans,...

    Carl Paladino, the conservative businessman who pulled off an upset to win the Republican primary in the 2010 New York's governor's race, is counting on Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney to pull off a similar upset in the state's 22nd Congressional District. Paladino said today he will back Tenney, R-New Hartford, in her GOP primary campaign against U.S. Rep. Richard Hanna, R-Barneveld, the two-term Republican who faces his second consecutive challenge from his party's conservative base.

    SARASOTA, Florida—The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) just held its winter meeting here, and the wealthy beachfront communities that dot the coast are typically considered one of the beating hearts of the Establishment GOP's donor community. Tonight, though, it's Cruz country. An event originally scheduled as a small rally for potential 2016 presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) mushroomed into a major political event after nearly 2,000 people RSVP'd online. “We are shocked at the level of interest that we’ve received for doing this rally,” Sarasota GOP chairman Joe Gruters told Breitbart News. “It’s obvious that the state is aware...

    Vice President Joe Biden says requiring Americans to register guns would "cross a cultural line" that would incite conservatives and conspiracy theorists. "The idea that you register your guns – it may make logical sense to say this, but there isn’t a constitutional right to own an automobile. There is a Second Amendment Constitutional right to own a weapon: the right to have and bear arms," he said in an interview with NPR's "All Things Considered." "When you go to registration, it raises all the black-helicopter-crowd notion that what this is all about is identifying who has a gun so...

Josh Romney, one of five sons, introduced his father, describing the former governor of Massachusetts as "my hero and the next president of the United States." As the elder Romney took the stage, the sea of people rose into a breaking wave of cell phones and cameras to capture the momentous event, chanting "four more weeks, four...

The gunman, who is in custody, stood at the front of the theater and fired into the crowd about 12:30 a.m. MDT at a multiplex theater in a mall in Aurora.

Onlookers scurried into nearby stores and restaurants, huddling in fear as the bullets flew near...

    Madison — Demonstrators crowded the Capitol in a wild scene after senators passed a budget-repair bill in a hastily called meeting Wednesday night that outraged protesters and Democratic legislators. Protesters yelled slogans and blew whistles as the Capitol took on the intensity and passion that marked the early days of the protests. Protesters demanded to be let inside, and in one scene at the southeastern entrance of the Capitol, scores of protesters pressed against the door as two-dozen police pushed them back. One protester got partly inside the door and was dragged in by the State Patrol. Outside, protesters chanted...

Bachmann, a leading speaker on the Republican banquet circuit and founder of the House Tea Party Caucus, said the federal debt was “a heart-palpitating $8 trillion” when Pelosi, a California Democrat, became speaker of the House. It grew to $14 trillion in four years. “There was a reason why we had to take the House of Representatives back,” she said of...

    An estimated 87,000 people attended a rally organized by talk-radio host and Fox News commentator Glenn Beck Saturday in Washington, according to a crowd estimate commissioned by CBS News. The company AirPhotosLive.com based the attendance on aerial pictures it took over the rally, which stretched from in front of the Lincoln Memorial along the Reflecting Pool to the Washington Monument. Beck and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin spoke at the rally. Beck, who predicted that at least 100,000 people would show up, opened his comments with a joke: "I have just gotten word from the media that there is over...

This, unlike most of what the president said during the town hall meeting, was met with silence. “I noticed I didn’t get a lot of clapping about the whole ‘We're gonna have the hard choices’ thing,” the president ribbed the crowd. The conversation had been prompted by a question from a man worried...
  • Comparing 9/12 Freedom Rally with MLK's "Dream" rally

    Using the latest photo of 9/12,taken from the top of the capitol, we can begin to do some comparisons with historical photos.   Top: 9/12 taxpayer rally. Above: MLK "I have a dream" speech. Estimated for that one, 250,000. Below: Aerial view of the Mall. The MLK speech was at the far end (top of picture) between the Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument. The 9/12 rally was at the near end, between the capitol and the Washington Monument. The latter space is, as you can see, quite a bit larger.

    “How big is it?” is certainly one of the world’s most dreaded questions. In fact, after the Million Man March in 1995, Congress restricted the National Park Service from even making estimates — a restriction that was maintained for 14 years and then quietly rescinded this January for the Obama inauguration. I’m talking about crowds, of course. I can’t take you people anywhere. There have been a lot of estimates, from the “official” one of 60 to 70 thousand, up to the rumored 2 million. Let’s see if we can make a plausible estimate with some rigor and some idea...

His tally, after even accounting for Baltimore Sun: "Inaugural crowd is estimated at close to 2 million" Boston Globe: " The National Park Service says it will rely on a media report that says 1.8 million people attended President Obama's inauguration."

And there will be 5 million people there to watch it, said the Chicago Sun-Times. In November, in the afterglow of a satisfying election victory, the Washington Post agreed that it would certainly be huge, but thought it might be more like, say 4 million. But hey, what's a million people between friendly MSM rags? The Denver Post piped up and said that actually it could be a little more like 3 million. But that is...

    Tonight, there is a reasonable expectation that Obama will perform in front of 75,000 people at Invesco Field. I understand they are shutting down highways and making special arrangements to enable the crowd to get to and from the event, and of course, there is parking to accommodate the crowd at the stadium. When he appears on his podium he will finally see what a crowd of 75,000 actually looks like, and what he will see is about twice the size of what he actually saw in Berlin. What will he think? Will he assume that there are 400,000 people...

    Fifteen minutes before Obama took the stage, German reporters estimated 20,000. Twenty minutes later, someone else, from the same news outlet, said 100,000. The figure of 200,000 came from Obama's people, and the American press went with that. Compare photos of the Berlin rally with the photos of a rally in Portland, Oregon that drew 75,000. They look pretty close to me.

    CROWD THEORY: If you want to understand crowds, you’ve got to immerse yourself in them. Not just one kind of crowd, but all kinds of crowds. There are a number of cross cultural similarities between crowds. As an observer, I’ve always enjoyed watching crowd mechanics in action. Concerts, demonstrations, games in stadiums, lines, speeches and parties are just a few examples of situations where crowds coalesce. Why study crowds? Why not? We move through them every day. Every crowd is a microcosm of society. Case in point, your government represents an institutionalized manifestation of crowd control theory. CROWD MEMBERS:...

After leading a red ribbon-cutting ceremony with fair officials and local politicians, Schwarzenegger left the stage and began a slow walk to the America's Kids exhibition hall, the crowd's cameras and cell phones documenting his every move. He shook hands and made small talk along his route. At one point, he...

    As his final American revival meeting continued Saturday, a fragile Billy Graham (search) was met onstage by former President Clinton, who honored the evangelist, calling him "a man I love." Clinton spoke briefly before Graham's sermon and recalled how the man known as America's pastor had refused to preach before a segregated audience in Arkansas decades ago when that state was in a bitter fight over school desegregation. "I was just a little boy and I'll never forget it," said Clinton, who was joined by his wife, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (search). "I've loved him ever since. God bless you,...

    I don't watch the Bill Maher show on HBO. I haven't thought much about him since he had a show on ABC and implied that the 9/11 attackers were courageous for flying hijacked planes into buildings and killing 3,000 people. At the same time, Maher said that the U.S. was cowardly for attacking terrorist bases in Afghanistan by launching cruise missiles from ships at sea. He is supposed to be a comedian but also tries to come across as someone who makes serious and thoughtful points about political issues. We had to take another look at Maher because after he...

    BOSTON (Oct. 22) -- Boston Mayor Thomas Menino said he was considering banning alcohol sales near Fenway Park during the World Series, following rowdy celebrations of the Red Sox's league championship that turned deadly when a police officer shot a projectile into a crowd. Menino planned to meet with bar and nightclub owners on Friday and also said he would press universities to expel students found guilty of criminal conduct in the melee. "Since people won't accept responsibility, I, as mayor, will take it into my own hands," Menino said. Emerson College student Victoria Snelgrove, 21, died on Thursday, hours...

    RIVERSIDE, Calif. - Frustrated at tangled bureaucracy and worried that important services would be slashed, hundreds of Californians on Friday crowded the first public hearing on a proposal to overhaul state government. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger called for "many reforms" in an energetic but brief appearance before a panel he appointed to begin the laborious task of trudging through 1,000-plus recommendations in the California Performance Review report. The reform proposal includes large and small ideas for revamping the state's bureaucracy. Schwarzenegger didn't offer his opinion on details of the 2,500-page report but repeated his assertion that major change is needed. "We...

    RAFAH, Gaza Strip (Reuters) - Israeli tanks and helicopters fired on protesters in a refugee camp on Wednesday, killing 10 Palestinians and raising a two-day death toll to 33 in Israel's bloodiest Gaza raid in years, witnesses said. Medics said about 50 people were wounded at the besieged Rafah camp in southern Gaza and that the casualties included many children and teenagers. The firing sent a marching crowd fleeing in terror, some dragging bloodied comrades and others carrying wounded children in their arms, demonstrators said. Expressing "deep sorrow over the loss of civilian lives," the army said it did not...

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Hundreds of people at a shopping mall fought over nearly $10,000 launched into a crowd by a real estate investor known as the "Money Man." Six people were taken to hospitals and six others were treated for cuts and bruises, police spokesman Bill Proffitt said. The most serious injury was a possible broken arm, he said. Police said at least 500 people crowded the BayWalk courtyard on Saturday for the cash giveaway. Kevin Shelton appeared on a balcony before firing $2 bills out of his "cash cannon," a small silver tube.

    A rodeo at the Kane County fairgrounds exploded into a brutal battle royal Saturday night, sending several people to the hospital. About 30 people bashed each other with fists, feet, belts and metal pipes, evoking screams from the nearly 2,000 people in attendance, St. Charles police said. The preliminary investigation points to a rodeo participant sparking the violence. Witnesses said the unnamed participant decided to ride his horse through an area where people were dancing. In the congestion, the horse stepped on a woman's leg, breaking her ankle. People near her responded by striking the man and pulling him off...

    MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore told thousands of supporters that he would be guilty of treason if he didn't fight to keep a monument of the Ten Commandments in the rotunda of the state judicial building. Drawing cheers and shouts of "amen" at a rally Saturday, Moore said his crusade to keep the 5,300-pound monument was not about bolstering his own political career, as some have claimed. "Let's get this straight. It's about the acknowledgment of God," Moore said in front of the Alabama Capitol. Buses and vans from as far away as California brought Moore...
