  • Running Scared? Red State Democrat Cites His Own Bills That Were Signed By Trump In New Ad

    03/12/2018 4:14:32 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 22 replies ^ | March 12, 2018 | Matt Vespa
    Is Montana Democratic Sen. Jon Tester running scared? That could be the case, or it could be that he just knows his state. His latest ad features him touting bills he co-sponsored that were signed into law by Trump. The Washington Post added that some of these bills are also not ones of great significance, like the tax bill for example. One of them named a mountain after a conservationist, but Trump’s name is attached to it. Still, any red state Democrat running this year knows he or she will be fighting for their political lives. Their states voted for...

    Colton Haab, a student who survived last week’s mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, refused to participate in a CNN Town Hall on Wednesday night after he was told to ask a “scripted” question. Haab, a junior at the high school, told Fort Lauderdale ABC affiliate WPLG that CNN invited him to speak at the televised town hall in nearby Sunrise, Florida, and that he and his parents had dressed up for the occasion. But CNN then told Haab he would have to read a question that CNN had prepared for him:

    The Democrats’ lead over Republicans on a generic 2018 election ballot has narrowed, a new poll has found. According to a CNN survey, Democrats have a 5-point lead, with 49 percent of respondents saying they’d support Democrats on a generic congressional ballot. Forty-four percent of registered voters said they’d support Republicans. The latest poll narrows the 18-point lead Democrats held over Republicans when the survey was conducted in December, at which point 56 percent of respondents said they’d choose Democrats while 38 percent said they’d vote for the Republican candidate. The survey comes as support for the Republican tax law...

    When we gather together this Christmas, it’s going to be super-awkward since everybody is dead because Donald Trump pulled out of the Paris Climate Scam, repealed net neutrality, and cut taxes. The depredations of Genghis Khan, the Black Plague, and the repeal of the Obamacare mandate – these are pretty much the same thing. Santa Claus and all of our dreams are dead too. On the plus side, since we are all dead there’s no one to make egg nog, which is the worst of all possible nogs. “You know what these eggs need? Some milk. And then rum.” No....

    Last Thursday night Senator Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania held a town hall event in the city of Bethlehem which was broadcast live. Part way through a representative from Indivisible called the event a “fake town hall” and asked when he would be holding a more open forum. Toomey disputed the characterization but added, “let’s be candid, there are some people that don’t want to have a constructive conversation.”As if to prove his point, a short time later a man named Simon Radecki used his time at the microphone to ask if Toomey had heard the “news” that his daughter...

    "Our leading media" are characterized by "indefensibly corrupt manipulations of language repeated incessantly." Patrick Lawrence in The Nation, Aug. 9, 2017, on the media's reporting of the alleged collusion between Donald Trump's campaign and Russia To understand America's crises today, one must first understand what has happened to two institutions: the university and the news media. They do not regard their mission as educating and informing but indoctrinating. In this column, I will focus on the media. I will dissect one issue that I know extremely well: the national and local coverage of the invitation extended to me to guest-conduct...

    Startup Day Across America Panel – with Congressman Jared Polis This event was held on August 1 at the “Rayback Collective” in Boulder Colorado.

It is a very large industrial space with enough remodeling to be a pleasant hangout for local residents. One of the owners remarked “You would not believe...

    Breitbart News and Town Hall censored an Ann Coulter column on Wednesday to help the mainstream media cover up 200 hate crimes committed against supporters of President Donald J. Trump, as documented by American Renaissance. Coulter’s Wednesday column—entitled “The Left Has One More Argument: Kill Them All!”—which The Daily Caller published in full, assails the mainstream media for neglecting to mention politically-motivated acts of violence against Trump supporters. Breitbart News and Town Hall ran the same, censored version of the Coulter column without the link to American Renaissance’s anti-Trump hate map.

    Critics of Republican U.S. Rep. Dave Brat and the House health care bill he voted for packed a raucous town hall meeting in his Virginia district Tuesday night, booing and shouting down the congressman from start to finish. Brat is the latest in a series of lawmakers across the country who have gotten an earful from constituents at town hall meetings since last week’s passage of the House health care bill that would repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. […] A former economics professor who defeated then-House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in a historic 2014 upset, Brat briefly discussed...

    GAYLORD, Mich. ( - A group of feminists shouted down a Protestant pastor opening a Michigan town hall meeting with prayer. Held in the city of Gaylord in Michigan's First Congressional District Thursday, Dr. Derek Hagland of Grace Baptist Church kicked off the event for state Republican congressman Jack Bergman, a former lieutenant general in the U.S. Marine Corps. Chanting "separation of Church and State," leftist activists — men and women alike — wearing the now-familiar pink hats associated with the D.C. Women's March tried to drown out Hagland's opening prayer. "He's incredibly transparent about faith being an important part...
  • Republican Sen. Jeff Flake gets slammed in raucous town hall meeting

    04/14/2017 1:47:51 PM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 69 replies
    Sen. Jeff Flake encountered a raucous audience at a town hall meeting in Mesa, Arizona, on Thursday night. Constituents peppered the Republican lawmaker with questions about President Donald Trump's actions in office, and his broader agenda on climate change, the president's taxes, the Supreme Court and Planned Parenthood. Much like other GOP town halls held since Trump assumed the Oval Office, attendees railed against Flake, many of whom accused him of being a rubber stamp for Trump. Flake, like Reps. Jason Chaffetz, Mike Coffman, and Sen. Mitch McConnell before him, attempted to answer the audience's concerns, though most explanations drew...
  • ‘Bring it on!’: Lindsey Graham and constituents shout over each other in latest town hall debacle

    Inundated with boos from a raucous town hall crowd, Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) snapped back, lashing out at one attendee for asking a “garbage” question and slamming many for not accepting the result of the 2016 presidential election. Toward the end of the hour-long town hall in Columbia, S.C., people were standing up. “Your last term! Your last term!” they chanted. The senator fired back, telling the crowd that he does not and will not worry about losing his job in the 2020 election. “Good! Good! Come on, bring it on! Bring it on!” Graham said. “If I win,...

    Washington (CNN) – Just five weeks into Donald Trump's presidency, Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham have already proven to be major headaches for the new President. While many of their Republican colleagues in Congress have worked to make inroads with the new administration, hoping to capitalize on GOP control over two branches of government, the two senators have repeatedly broken with the White House. McCain has accused Trump of running an "administration in disarray." Graham called his budget proposal "dead on arrival" on Capitol Hill. Now, the two are set to make their case to a national audience...

    An organization partnered with far-left groups that calls itself the Revolutionary Love Project distributed an actual script with anti-Trump talking points for citizens to use when meeting with constituents in town halls, including during last week’s Congressional recess. The script provides word-for-word language suggestions that accuse the Trump administration of “xenophobia, racism, and Islamophobia.” It asks activists to use the descriptors to petition their representatives to “forcefully condemn” and support legislation opposing President Trump’s immigration and border security agendas. The script is entitled, “#NoBanNoWallNoRaids Talking Points for Congressional Townhalls.” It ends with contact information for activists from two groups heavily...
