  • Thanks to Trump the Republican Leadership Has a Backbone Now

    Town Hall ^ | 10/9/2018 | John Dempsey
    It appears that Republican leaders finally enjoy winning. The ironic part is that President Trump taught them how to win, and how to use gumption. The last few weeks have been historic during the confirmation process of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Democrats could not find a credible reason to disqualify him from becoming an associate justice of the Supreme Court. Instead of accepting their fate, ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee Diane Feinstein (D-CA) promoted a leaked letter accusing Kavanaugh of sexual assault against Christine Ford in 1982 when he was 17 years old, and she was 15...

    Arizona’s Republican U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake has announced he’s not running for reelection, so several candidates have jumped into the open race to replace him. There are currently three frontrunners. GOP Rep. Martha McSally, a combat pilot who served in the U.S. Air Force, former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and former Arizona State Senator Kelli Ward. Ward made a name for herself launching an unsuccessful conservative challenge to Sen. John McCain in 2016.McSally is the darling of the GOP establishment. She was elected to Congress in 2014, representing a swing district seat formerly held by Gabrielle Giffords. Senate Majority...

    The Department of Justice announced charges against 25 individuals on Friday who committed fraud using Puerto Rican identities in an effort to gain government benefits and in some cases even vote. 22 of the 25 charged were illegal aliens, many with records of drug dealing, violent crimes, and some previously deported. Imposters regularly use birth certificates and social security cards stolen or copied from Puerto Ricans to pose as American citizens in order to receive Medicare, evade arrest, and take advantage of welfare benefits such as EBT cards and food stamps. In a sting operation known as, “Operation Double Trouble”...

    The news about the president is shocking. Behavior that would get most people fired has taken place, and something must be done. Are we, as a nation, not up in arms when a president: --Is repeatedly and humiliatingly unfaithful to his wife? --Engages in sexually exploitative conduct with young women working for him? --Is credibly accused of sexual misconduct by more than one woman? --Uses racial slurs to describe African-Americans, in the crudest possible terms? --Lies to the American public repeatedly? --Spies on journalists and denies them access to the White House? --Interferes with investigations into foreign nationals suspected of...

    President Trump criticized Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Thursday and revealed the only reason he hired him for the job to begin with. In an interview broadcast Thursday morning on “Fox and Friends,” Trump tells anchor Ainsley Earhardt that Sessions was never able to take control over the DOJ. “The Dems are very strong in the Justice Department," Trump said during the interview. "And I put in an attorney general that never took control of the Justice Department, Jeff Sessions. Never took control of the Justice Department. “It’s sort of an incredible thing,” he added. He then renewed his criticism...

    I’m surprised.Historically, when have socialists ever been enemies of press freedom?Get excited for “Reliable Sources” this weekend on CNN, when stalwart media defender Brian Stelter will respond to this troubling precedent from a left-wing Democrat by ignoring it. [W]hen Ocasio-Cortez returned to the district for a Bronx community meeting with prominent healthcare activist Ady Barkan last Tuesday, her campaign manager, Vigie Ramos Rios, later told the Chronicle, she was “mobbed” by reporters, “even though we said no Q&A and no one-on-one [interviews].”According to Ramos Rios and campaign spokesman Corbin Trent, that unwanted attention led to a press ban both...

    Josh Welle, the Democrat running against Congressman Chris Smith in the 4th congressional district, held a campaign event, dubbed a town hall meeting, in Jackson on Thursday night that appeared to be designed to capture footage for television commercials, rather than to hear from the people of Jackson, as advertised. Rather than the free wheeling give and take of town hall meetings New Jersey residents are accustomed to, like those of former Governor Chris Christie, and the ObamaCare town halls held by Congressman Frank Pallone and Rush Holt in 2010, Welle’s event featured pre-screened questions read by a moderator.

    You and I are living through the greatest mass hysteria in American history. For many Americans, the McCarthy era held that dubious distinction, but what is happening now is incomparably worse.For one thing, any hysteria that existed then was directed against the greatest evil in the world at the time: communism. Then-Sen. Joseph McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities Committee notwithstanding, there really were Americans in important positions who supported communist regimes enslaving their populations and committing mass murder. McCarthy was on to something.In contrast, the country is choking on hysteria over the extremely unlikely possibility -- for which there...

    Amidst division among his fellow Democrats over his campaign to see President Donald Trump impeached, billionaire left-wing environmentalist Tom Steyer held a rally attended by approximately 400 anti-Trump activists in Oakland Wednesday night to help garner support for his impeachment efforts. According to the East Bay Times, Steyer said Trump “is a malignant narcissist who’s deteriorating” while speaking alongside Amy Siskind, an anti-Trump Wall Street executive-turned-blogger, at the Impact Hub, a community center in uptown Oakland. “Today is the best day of the rest of the Trump administration,” Steyer said. Siskind, who is a liberal self-described “Jewish, gay woman,” used...

    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...

    Startup Day Across America Panel – with Congressman Jared Polis This event was held on August 1 at the “Rayback Collective” in Boulder Colorado. About 40 people attended in person and an unknown number followed the discussion over streaming video. The event format was a six person panel of local entrepreneurs who have started small businesses. The “Collective” is a restaurant-bar located on the site of the former “Rayback Plumbing and Heating Company”. 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...
