    Thousands of people have gathered at Parnell Square in Dublin city centre for an anti-abortion rally.

It is being organised by Youth Defence, the Life Institute, and Precious Youth. At 2.30pm demonstrators began making their way down O'Connell Street towards their finishing point outside Leinster House. Gardaí estimated the crowd for today's rally at between 5,000 and 8,000, while organisers said the figure was between 25,000 and 30,000.

    The world’s best gosh darned campaign team seems to have managed to stick their foot in it again. Later this month Hillary Clinton will be “officially” launching or relaunching or coming out of the closet about her presidential campaign. The planned rally will take place at Four Freedoms Park which is located in the middle of the East River on Roosevelt Island. It’s a fairly tight venue to start with and the media is complaining that getting in and out of there is a challenge on a normal day, to say nothing of doing it in the middle of...

    Is an Albany Minuteman Rally Possible? WE are getting ever closer to FULL Repeal of the Safe Act being a reality. Every PUSH gets US closer. There is not much time left in the current legislative session. This precludes a well-organized rally to take place. The only way to make a rally happen is if WE can muster up A Minuteman Rally. Americans will soon find out just how many New York gun owners have refused to comply with the draconian New York SAFE Act.

    So. I flew from Texas as a guest of Ted Cruz' PAC to attend CPAC. I'm in my hotel room in Crystal City getting ready to go back home in the morning. This was my first time to attend CPAC. My observations: 1. Three types of pepole in attendance: college intern type, political operative type, and far fewer: average people. 2. The Paul people were everywhere. Judging by the idiot sitting behind me at the "Big Government Sucks" rally, I'm not impressed. This college kid was trying to explain, very patiently, to his buddy that the problem isn't really big...

    RALEIGH — When the Love My Life rally began five years ago, 300 teens and their parents attended, a group small enough for the Sacred Heart Cathedral in downtown Raleigh to handle. On Saturday, the anti-abortion event, sponsored by the Catholic Diocese of Raleigh, drew roughly five times that number as middle and high school students packed into a huge heated tent on the Halifax Mall in the heart of the state government complex. Those numbers augmented the annual anti-abortion march later that afternoon that ran the length of a city block. The rally featured contemporary Christian music with a...

"It's the idea of living together because we share the same values, liberty, fraternity, equality, to live in peace and respect each other despite our differences." "Exactly!" agreed Riad, the 60-year-old shopkeeper. "I don't recognise these Islamists, they're not Muslims."

The outrage caught national headlines and the National Park Service has since changed the wording on the signs around the memorial. Ride for the Constitution has sent their drivers...

    Please pardon the vanity! I just got home from an Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment rally in Latham, NY. This one was to support the truckers effort. WHAT A BLAST! Thousands of cars passed us and the majority of them honked, gave 'thumbs up' and/or waved encouragingly. A few people hollered 'THANKS!" We got a very few negative shouts and maybe 7 'thumbs down'. There were 6 of us, and 2 more people parked their car and joined us. How cool is that??? I swear to you as well, a few black guys walked past us at different times and they...
