    Full title: CNN Quietly Releases Updated Pic Showing Trump’s Inaugural Crowd Size Greater than Obama’s 2009 Inaugural Crowd Excerpt: As we pointed out throughout the months leading up to the election, crowd size matters. President Trump was crushing Hillary Clinton in number of rallies and number of participants at his rallies when compared to Clinton. . . . However, the pictures in the article show the crowd size for Obama when he was speaking during his 2009 inauguration with the crowd from Trump’s inauguration approximately 3 hours before Trump spoke.

    President Donald Trump is hanging up some new art in the White House press area - and it's none too subtle. The panoramic photo shows the crowds gathered near the U.S. Capitol for Trump's inauguration on Friday. It's a nod to the ongoing interest the president has in making it clear that his event was well-attended.

    Rush ^ | September 26, 2016 | Rush Limbaugh
    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: You know the stories about the size of the crowds that go to Trump rallies versus the practically invisible crowds that visit Hillary rallies. I'm guilty of this, too. The rule of thumb in discussing that is to say, "Don't attach too much to it." A lot of candidates who lost in landslides drew huge crowds, the story goes. That is not data. Massive crowds showing up at a campaign rally is not an indication of how they're gonna vote at all. It's not even an indication if they're gonna vote. It's nothing more than anecdotal. By...

    SIERRA VISTA — All but one of the loose dogs recovered by local police or animal control officers and sent to the Nancy J. Brua Animal Care Center around the 4th of July holiday have been reunited with their owners. The local animal shelter saw a significant uptick in the number of dogs brought into the shelter around the holiday, most likely due to becoming scared and panicked by the detonation of fireworks, said Arleen Garcia, animal control supervisor for Sierra Vista. By Wednesday, four of the 10 dogs had already been reunited with their owners, who were easily notified...

    That's not what the crowd wanted. "I like the fact that he's not afraid to speak up," said Cheryl Surber, of Ft. Worth. "He's saying a lot of things that a lot of people want to have said that no Republican has had the male parts, so to speak, to say." "He has energy, he's exciting. I know he's got a big mouth, but people are willing to overlook that big mouth because we feel like he's going to get things done," said Mary Downing, of Dallas, who said she voted for Obama twice. All in all, it was a...

    Almost every day, we've been seeing unbelievable crowds for Romney and miniscule ones for Obama. 30,000 for Romney, 2800 for Obama. We're told that crowd size is not scientific evidence of how the vote will turn out and it's only "anecdotal". Doesn't mean much. We're told it's the polls that tell the real story and it's close, very close. But I can't be the only one who senses that something, way beyond what the polls are saying, is happening. Look at the size of this Colorado crowd. I think this thing could be a blowout for Romney/Ryan. I think MSDNC,...

    Enter Stage Right ^ | September 5, 2011 | Daniel M. Ryan
    Although the CLOUD experiment carried out in CERN didn't quite drive a stake through the heart of the global-warming ideology, it came close to. Through simulating the atmosphere being bombarded by cosmic rays, the experiment produced microscopic droplets of water vapour. It established that higher levels of cosmic rays do indeed lead to more droplets in the sky, a claim denied by all global-warming models. As of yet, the droplets produced in the CERN lab aren't large enough to form clouds. So far, a solid causation has not supplemented an already-established correlation. In response to CLOUD, some global-warming supporters are...
  • ‘One Nation’ Rally: Liberal Media Concludes Size Doesn’t Matter (Beck Rally Crowd Much Bigger!)

    Pajamas Media ^ | October 3, 2010 | Charlie Martin
    Another exclusive Pajamas Media crowd estimate. The widely publicized, heavily subsidized “One Nation” rally was Saturday in Washington, D.C. As has been openly admitted by the organizers, which included the AFL-CIO, the SEIU and Obama’s perpetual campaign organization Organizing for America, this rally was held in the same place and at basically the same time of the day as Glenn Beck’s 8/28 “Restoring Honor” rally, specifically to demonstrate the depth of support for the president’s program. The convention organizers had a number of advantages, perhaps the greatest being that the buses bringing in demonstrators were apparently subsidized by the rally...

    The top public health official in Los Angeles County stood at a swine flu vaccination site in Compton, Calif., on Tuesday and gently told elderly residents that they really ought to go home. “I explained to people 65 or older, ‘The reason we are doing this is for children,’ ” said the official, Jonathan E. Fielding, the director of the county’s Department of Public Health. “I told them: ‘They are at very high risk for this flu, and you’re at low risk. I am sure you wouldn’t want to get a shot that left a kid who is at risk...

    Commentary Magazine ^ | April 24, 2009 | Abe Greenwald
    Unlike candidate Barack Obama, President Barack Obama has been unable to use mob anger to his advantage. The White House position on a comprehensive release of terrorist interrogation materials and on potential prosecution of Bush administration officials is incoherent and stultifying. Casting himself as restorer of national decency, Obama first denounced tough interrogations as a betrayal of American ideals. Yet he recommended “reflection, not retribution,” vowing to “move forward” and not prosecute interrogators because “nothing will be gained by spending our time and energy laying blame for the past.” However, days later, he decided that laying blame for the past...

    Cowboy Capitalism made us the greatest nation in history. Will a third-world clamor for a charismatic redeemer lead us down the road to loserdom; joining the ranks of our flaccid, declining, collectivist European cousins? Two smart men give us their take on what's happening to our society in two excellent Wall Street Journal columns. Dan Henninger reminds us of our greatness and the brave, frontier attitude that got us here. Fouad Ajami worries that Obamamania is driving our country towards "the politics of charisma that wrecked Arab and Muslim societies." Here's Henninger's celebration of America, sure to encourage conservatives and...

    There is something odd -- and dare I say novel -- in American politics about the crowds that have been greeting Barack Obama on his campaign trail. Hitherto, crowds have not been a prominent feature of American politics. We associate them with the temper of Third World societies. We think of places like Argentina and Egypt and Iran, of multitudes brought together by their zeal for a Peron or a Nasser or a Khomeini. In these kinds of societies, the crowd comes forth to affirm its faith in a redeemer: a man who would set the world right. As the...

PALLASCH Staff Reporter GREEN BAY, Wis. — Hoping to shore up support in his suddenly undependable backyard, Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama flew here Monday to talk about how he’d handle economic crises as president. Recent polls have shown that Wisconsin — once pretty solidly in Obama’s column — is now a statistical dead heat between Obama and Republican John McCain. “You all know that you hold this election in your hands,”...
