  • Why Private Speech Doesn't Tell Us About a Person's Character

    Townhall ^ | 02/11/2020 | Dennis Prager
    Very few things I have said have elicited as much negative attention as this: What people say in private tells little, if anything, about their character. Left-wing critics have had a field day mocking me (mockery is the left's substitute for argument), but even some religious conservatives have taken issue with me (without the mockery) -- don't I know that it is precisely how we act in private that most clearly reveals our character? This issue, of course, originally arose as a result of what then-reality TV host Donald Trump said in private to then-"Access Hollywood" host Billy Bush in...

    Town Hall ^ | 1/31/2020 | Cortney O'Brien
    President Trump keeps bringing in the crowds. MSNBC's Katy Tur was on site for Trump's' most recent rally at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa Thursday night, and she couldn't believe what she was seeing. Just a few days out from the Iowa Caucus, and voters appear to be fired up about re-electing the president. "7,000 people inside that arena, we couldn't even get in it was so packed ... That is in stark contrast to what we're seeing from the Democrats so far in Iowa." Link to video:

    Breitbart ^ | January 23, 2020 | HANNAH BLEAU
    CNN canceled its upcoming town halls featuring Democrat presidential candidates slated for next week due to the ongoing Senate impeachment trial, the outlet reported on Thursday. CNN was slated to hold a two-day town hall event for the Democrat presidential candidates at Drake University on Tuesday, January 28, and Wednesday, January 29, just days before the February 3 Iowa caucuses. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Andrew Yang (D), Tom Steyer (D), Pete Buttigieg (D), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), and Joe Biden (D) were expected to attend. However, the ongoing impeachment trial in the Senate will make it...
  • Behold the incredible power of the conservative protester

    01/16/2020 4:47:48 PM PST · by ProgressingAmerica · 10 replies
    I just wanted to give a reminder of why one of the most powerful things a conservative can do is go out and protest. I mean, it's only listed in the constitution. But who reads that thing, right? If you don't like the fake news media? Best thing you can do is go out and protest. If you don't believe me I can prove it to you. I'll even show you where a journalist has admitted this to be true. Sure, I am going to be at the March for Life next week so I do have a vested interest....
  • Virginia Democratic rep in swing district faces heat at town hall over impeachment

    CNN ^ | 9 Dec 19 | Devan Cole
    A Virginia Democratic congresswoman who was a reluctant supporter of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump found herself in the middle of a tense town hall on Sunday when she explained her position on the matter. Constituents in Rep. Abigail Spanberger's moderate district -- she unseated Republican Rep. Dave Brat last year -- who both supported and opposed the impeachment effort shouted at times during the event in Spotsylvania, Virginia. She was discussing her record and instances when she voted against House Democratic leadership when a few audience members interrupted and told her to move on to impeachment. "My...

    Townhall is going to start charging 45 bucks a year to read their most popular columnists. I'm really going to miss Kurt, as the column is a bit too discretionary for my budget these days, and the ads aren't panning out.

    Many of the top Democratic presidential candidates took part in a seven-hour climate change forum Wednesday, but they’re not done talking about it on a nationally televised stage. Although the Democratic National Committee decided against hosting a single-issue debate about climate change, the issue — which is one of voters’ top concerns — will be the subject of another independent town hall in roughly two weeks. Wednesday’s summit was hosted by CNN; on September 19 and 20, MSNBC will air its own climate town hall beginning at 3 pm ET each day. The event, which is cosponsored by the Georgetown...
  • Disgrace: Seventh Illegal Immigrant Arrested for Rape in Anti-ICE County Since Late July

    Townhall ^ | 9/3/2019 | Guy Benson
    Last time we checked in on progressive Montgomery County, Maryland, four illegal immigrants had been arrested on rape charges since Democratic politicians imposed new rules in late July that hampered local officials' ability to cooperate with ICE. The federal agency warned that this act of political signaling would put innocent people's well being at risk, an admonition that has been tragically vindicated on numerous occasions since. Two of the aforementioned rape suspects, both in their 20's, had been taken into custody for allegedly repeatedly raping an 11-year-old girl. One of those suspects had been ignoring a final immigration removal notice...

    I looked to see if there was a live thread for this, but there wasn't. 10 minutes in, I'm ready to bail. Three times they asked him how Trump's comments about a foreign source for oppo research differed from what Hillary Clinton actually DID DO in that situation and three times he failed to provide an answer. He actually answered the direct question with an answer about how mean Donald Trump was to John McCain. Enjoy him tonight, he's not long for your television.

    VIDEO Beto O'Rourke's campaign has fizzled to such an extent that he even had to play to an apparent town hall audience of ONE. The good news for Beto is that ol' PJ can get him a larger audience than has been appearing at his campaign events recently if he campaigns in Broward County, Florida. The venue would be Wings Plus in Coral Springs and my compensation for this would be an exclusive interview and a plate of wings.

    Thus far, four Democratic 2020 candidates have done town halls on Fox News. (Gillibrand, Klobuchar, Sanders, and Buttigieg.) Now a fifth contender has approached the network looking to get a slice of that high-ratings goodness, and it’s none other than New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. Of course, people were quick to point out that it might be a bit awkward for Hizzoner to go to Fox with his hat in his hand after some of the things he’s said about the network in the past. And we’re not even talking the distant past. (Free Beacon) New York City...

    VIDEO Joe Biden couldn't control himself at the May 28 Houston Town Hall. He did the last thing he should be doing: groping yet another girl. This brought a rather harsh response, as you will see, from his Democrat primary opponent, Mike Gravel.

    Presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke really wants to do a town hall event with Fox News, like some of his Democratic rivals. “Absolutely,” O’Rourke told reporters Monday in Iowa after he was asked if he would appear on the network. “This campaign is about going to where people are, and you see that physically in where I show up. But it also has to be in those channels or those social media streams where people get their news and their information. That also includes Fox.” O’Rourke, who said his campaign may have already begun discussions with Fox, has previously been critical...

    “Fox News balances a mix of bigotry, racism, and outright lies,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) declared Tuesday in her explanation of why she turned down an invitation to one of the network’s town hall events. In a series of tweets, Sen. Harris attacked Fox News, accusing the network of promoting the “life and death consequences” of racism and conspiracy theorists. […] Democrats who participate in the Fox News town hall will be allowing the hateful network to cash in on their popularity, (Sen.) Warren says: “I won’t ask millions of Democratic primary voters to tune into an outlet that profits...
  • CNN to host James Comey town hall on May 9 -- two years after Trump fired him

    Former FBI Director James Comey will take questions at a town hall next Thursday moderated by CNN's Anderson Cooper. The town hall will air at 8 p.m. ET May 9, from Washington, DC. The town hall will be held exactly two years to the day after President Donald Trump fired Comey, citing Comey's handling of the probe into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server. Comey was overwhelmingly confirmed by the Senate as FBI director in July 2013 with a 93-1 vote, and served until his firing on May 9, 2017. On Wednesday, Comey penned an op-ed in The...
  • Gun control via executive order?

    One more item from CNN’s Night of a Thousand Presidential Candidates yesterday. Among her various “moderate” proposals, California Senator Kamala Harris (D) made sure to get in a pitch for gun control and what she planned to do about it if elected. The basic principles she was pushing for were nothing new among Democrats. More background checks, closing “loopholes” and bans on “assault rifles” were all on the table. But Harris offered a bit of a twist. She pledged that if Congress didn’t do anything about this in the first 100 days of her presidency, she’d take matters into her...
  • In Her First Town Hall, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard Came Off As A Leftist, Not a Centrist

    The Federalist ^ | 03/11/2019 | David Marcus
    Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, complete with lei, took the stage at SXSW in Austin to do her first town hall as a presidential candidate Sunday night on CNN. The 37-year-old Iraq War veteran is running for president and would be the youngest, first woman, and first Hindu president in our nation’s history. Many pundits have placed Gabbard in the center or even right of the Democratic Party. If so, the center or right of the Democratic Party is pretty leftist. Her first question was about American intervention in the rest of the world, and how she could be against American...
  • Why The Democrats Cheered Trump’s Defeat, But Should Be More Panicked Than Ever

    On Friday afternoon, within minutes of President Trump ending the shutdown, the left declared victory. Dancing up and down on his perceived “grave” the fund raising requests were e-blasted to supporters promising that the day’s events insured already assumed doom for a President they hate. Don’t tell them... but the opposite is now on its way. To see leftwing activists so eagerly cheer the defeat (even temporarily) of some of the most broad-based (and in many instances—Democrat initiated) objectives as it pertains to common sense border security was disheartening. Why Congressional and Senate Democrats would refuse the opportunity to take...

    It's no secret that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D) is facing a challenging bid for her former post as Speak of the House. The icing on the cake though? She thinks that it's time for her Democratic colleagues to come together and unite over her potential speakership.On Friday, Pelosi sent a letter to her Democratic colleagues, urging them to "support the nominee of our Caucus for Speaker on the Floor of the House." The Democratic Party's rules require members to vote for whoever the nominee is.Here's a copy of the letter (emphasis mine): November 23, 2018Dear Democratic Colleague and...
