    U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO-S.C.) opted not to meet with South Carolina voters during the August recess of the United States Congress – so a group of local activists brought a cardboard cutout of the fiscal liberal to a town hall meeting in North Charleston, S.C. this week. Who did show up to meet with Graham’s constituents? Lowcountry businesswoman Nancy Mace and S.C. Sen. Lee Bright – both of whom are challenging Graham in next June’s Republican primary. A third challenger, former congressional candidate Richard Cash, was invited but did not attend the gathering – which was organized by local...

    The Senators representing Arizona Mexico.- The last time McCain held a "town hall" in Tucson it was kept top secret, and staged with only amnesty supporters allowed in. This subterfuge was quickly exposed and McCain exposed and shamed for it. But John McCain has no shame, and no honor, and so he is doing it yet again - this time with instant sell-out and McCain lapdog Sen. Jeff Flake (R). Tomorrow in Mesa, AZ McCain and Flake will hold a "Conversation on Immigration" at the Mesa Arts Centers Piper Theater. And once again it is a CLOSED event, and "tickets are not...

    If one Maryland town hall is any indication, Republican voters are not happy with how little Republican politicians are doing to reign in the government. Greta Van Susteren took viewers to a town hall where Congressman Andy Harris was confronted by constituents angry about NSA surveillance, the Obama administration, and Republicans not doing enough for them. One man scolded Harris, “We’re dying out here because you guys are being nice guys!” One man complained about NSA spying, saying Congress needs to “come clean” with the public about the government’s secret interpretation of the law. Harris assured him that he’s personally...

    A congressman from Ohio had cops grab the cameras of constituents during a town hall meeting. Steve Chabot, a Republican, had cell phones and cameras confiscated in order to “prevent an embarrassing Youtube video from making the rounds,” according to Carlos Miller, who runs a blog documenting efforts by the state to stifle the First Amendment rights of photographers. Police said the cameras were taken “to protect the constituents.” A local television station, however, was allowed to videotape the meeting and the brazen move by Chabot and the cops.

    Starting at 2 p.m. ET on Wednesday, President Obama will hold the first ever "Twitter Town Hall," to discuss jobs and the economy. The president will be speaking, not tweeting, but his questions will come from Twitter. Thousands of Tweets are already populating the #AskObama hashtag created for the event. But the White House says Obama will also answer questions that are asked on Twitter while the event is going on. Twitter will monitor hot tweets — those that have the most Retweets, Favorites, and Replies. Also, with help from visualization company Mass Relevance, Twitter will be mapping the big...

    Nobody is safe. Velma Hart, who burst onto the media scene after telling President Obama she was scared about her financial future, has been laid off. Hart was let go as the chief financial officer for Am Vets, a nonprofit Maryland-based veteran services organization. Hart has become another casualty of the tough economy in which so many people have lost their jobs. "It's not anything she did," said Jim King, the national executive director of Am Vets.

    Here is the gist of a report filed by an American citizen who attempted to attend a Town Hall meeting staged August 14 in Bozeman, Montana, by our country's new Doctor-in-Chief. I say "staged" because, instead of holding it at one of several convenient and available auditoriums or gymnasiums offering easy access from any direction, with plenty of parking, seats, tables, utilities, audio equipment, not to mention a stage and podium, the President's scouts chose the most remote site imaginable ­ the most inaccessible hangar of an airport outside ofBelgrade, a tiny, nearby town, totally secluded from the public.

    In December 1917 Bolshevik Russian leaders, including one of the founders of Socialist thuggery Vladimir Lenin, established the Cheka—Russia’s first political secret police. With almost unlimited power, the Cheka implemented “campaigns of terror” against the wealthy, land owners and those who opposed Lenin and Bolshevism. !n 1922, once most of Russia’s opposition to their new absolute rulers had lessened, the Cheka was disbanded. However, under the singularly oppressive Josef Stalin, Cheka was reinstated and ultimately renamed “The People’s Commissariat for Internal Affairs” (NKVD) and what would be known as Stalin’s “Great Terror of the 1930s began. The NKVD was used...

"Folks, this is Obamacare," he said, holding the binders over his head. "Let me start this by telling you what I think of this bill and Obamacare," he said, and slammed the binders on the ground. With that, Broun set the tone for a town hall meeting on health care reform. The Democrats' proposal is too expensive and will threaten millions of Georgians' jobs and lives, he said.

Tim Walz, D-Minn., put in an appearance, an audience member declared loudly that plans for national health reform were a "step toward communism." Walz, a veteran, shot back: "I didn't spend 24 years in the military to be called a Communist, I can tell you that." A similarly harsh reception confronted Fifth District Rep. Keith Ellison, when he struggled for control of the microphone at what should have...

Minutes into the first of two scheduled "Congressman on Your Corner" sessions Saturday afternoon at the jam-packed Concerto Fusion restaurant in Morrisville, shouts from an impatient, frustrated crowd forced Murphy and his staff to reconsider the format of the event.

    Obama is conducting a town hall on May 14, 2009 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. You can sign up for tickets at whitehouse.gov/newmexicotownhall-5-14 but you have to do it before 5pm today. The goal of getting a ticket would be to ask him a question designed to make him look bad. It's vitally important to do that in the right way: 1. Only "friendlies" will be called on. So, if you're wearing an "Obama is a Communist" t-shirt, you probably aren't going to be called on. 2. Saying that all those who will be called on are plants is a self-fulfilling...

    Obama will be holding a townhall meeting on Wednesday in Orange County. Tickets are being given out starting at 10am on Tuesday, but the TV news showed that people were already waiting in line. So, you have to go *now*. The goal is to make him look bad by asking him this question: The stimulus bill will save or create millions of jobs. But, there will still be millions of unemployed Americans, right? Unfortunately, in the final bill, provisions to prevent illegal aliens from receiving jobs were stripped out. That means that every stimulus job that's taken by an illegal...
