  • Beto O'Rourke begs for a Fox News town hall

    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...
  • Sen. Elizabeth Warren: ‘Fox News Is a Hate-for-Profit Racket That Gives a Megaphone to Racists’

    “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...

    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...

    The Daily Caller ^ | November 6, 2018 | John R. Lott, Jr.
    I don’t like bullies. A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a piece pushing back against Andrew Kaczynski and the rest of CNN’s KFile unit, which has made a mission of taking out certain Republicans. Townhall published the piece, in which I defended David Clarke, Monica Crowley and Congressman Jason Lewis from CNN’s attacks. But Townhall immediately removed it after CNN’s Kaczynski said my claims were incorrect.

    As a Jew who attends synagogue every Shabbat, and as an advocate for the carrying of concealed weapons, I fervently pray we will not need armed guards at American synagogues. America's uniqueness has been exemplified by the fact that Jews do not need armed guards in their synagogues. May it always be so. Even if you don't love Jews -- if you only love America -- you need to fight anti-Semites. As the Jews go, so goes the fate of the nation in which they live.

    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...
