    A group of enraged protesters exploded in anger after a chaplain prayed in the name of Jesus at a town hall meeting in Louisiana hosted by U.S. Sen. Bill Cassidy. The verbally abusive crowd also heckled a Vietnam War veteran who attempted to lead the group in the pledge of allegiance. It was one of the most heinous acts of un-American, anti-Christian behavior I’ve ever seen, folks. Louisiana State chaplain Michael Sprague and the unidentified Vietnam War veteran should be commended for maintaining their composure in the face of such verbal barbarism. The Feb. 22 town hall meeting in Metairie...
  • Soros-Financed Groups Provided Script For Anti-Trump Town Halls

    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...
  • Town Hall Project Founded By Former Clinton Staffer

    A group serving as a central hub of information for congressional town halls was founded by a former Hillary Clinton campaign staffer and its parent company is located at the same address as an organization funded by liberal billionaire George Soros. Democrats have insisted that recent town hall outbursts against Republican politicians occurred organically, likening them to the Tea Party, while President Donald Trump yesterday tweeted that the "so-called angry crowds in home districts of some Republicans are actually, in numerous occasions, planned out by liberal activists. Sad!" The Town Hall Project, a group that serves as a one-stop shop...

    ... The activists split up into an “inside team” — tasked with occupying “as many seats as we can” and an “outside team,” whose job was to “give [the media] the coverage they want” before joining the others inside. Activists were instructed to dress like conservatives and leave at home “any signifier that you’re a liberal” in order to blend in with constituents. ...

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says Republican lawmakers should hold town halls even if that means confronting hundreds of angry progressive constituents. “Welcome to the real world of responsibility,” Christie told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union” Sunday. The governor’s comments come after a week in which massive crowds turned up at GOP town halls to protest President Donald Trump and Republicans’ efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act. …

    As liberals are exposed in all their fury, more Americans will come to realize that the voters made the right decision in electing Donald Trump as our nation’s 45th President. Across the country, angry mobs of protesters are flooding town hall meetings of GOP Senators and Representatives. The liberal media is enjoying the spectacle and emphasizing the supposed grassroots anger of average Americans. Among many issues, the attendees have been screaming about Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and her reform agenda, phony “Russian” connections to the administration, efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare, plans to dismantle onerous EPA regulations and the...

    Obviously everyone is seeing the Astroturf attendees to various Town Hall events promoted by a Very Fake News media apparatus. Everyone knows the ruse, because astroturf activism is a consistently deployed page from the Democrat’s Alinsky playbook. However, for those who might not have been as engaged in the grassroots Tea Party original activism – allow me to remind you of December 2009. Town Halls? It’s hilarious to hear Democrats and media discussing “Town Halls” in 2017 when back in those dark December ’09 evenings, the entire senate was sequestered by Reid and held in session 8 days past the...

    Ted Cruz's townhall meeting by telephone last night drew over 104,000 participants. The previous record was 67,000 people. The event was sponsored by the Tea Party Patriots and Cruz was joined by Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK). The meeting was on the continuing resolution. TPP Co-founder Jenny Beth Martin said no special efforts were taken and the only announcements were the standard Facebook post for two hours and a robocall earlier in the day. The meeting was to bring people up to date on the defunding of Obamacare through the CR. Just as 2010, the Tea Party patriots are leading the...

    Reports of the tea party's demise are greatly exaggerated, or so its leadership would have us believe. Sure, the 4-year-old movement is maturing and all those attention-grabbing headlines from 2009 are much harder to come by in 2013. But conservative activist Brent Bozell, who is attempting to build support for defunding President Obama's health care law, said establishment Republicans are running away from their constituents, a sign that bucking the tea party's grassroots agenda is fraught with peril. "Isn't it interesting how times change; that just three years ago, Republicans were rushing to have town halls and now they're running...

    Texas is experiencing a drought of townhalls from certain Congressmen. A conservative activist from Houston poked me yesterday saying, “Ted Poe and Cornyn are not being good boys about scheduling town halls.” I had a look at the Texas Town Hall Schedule she sent, put together by the Tea Party Immigration Coalition “listing targets for townhalls from the pro-amnesty forces” and I can hardly disagree. - See more at: http://ramparts360.com/a-drought-of-texas-town-halls/#sthash.JSrmyGRp.dpuf

Ted Cruz (R-TX).

    AP via SFGate ^ | 9/2/11 | JERI CLAUSING, Associated Press
    Too much yelling, not enough listening. Facing organized, often raucous confrontations at political events, some members of Congress this summer abandoned the long-time tradition of open meetings with the folks back home. It was goodbye to one of the few remaining opportunities for voters and lawmakers to talk face to face. Some cited security in the aftermath of the shooting that severely wounded Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords at a meet-and-greet event in January. Others blamed grass-roots groups for commandeering the town halls. Still others opted for smaller, sometimes private or paid events. Whatever the explanation, the dearth of meetings sparked...

The executive also said the event would be streamed live online via the network’s websites. Politico reports that MTV’s Sway Calloway, CMT’s Kate Cook and BET’s April Woodard will host the town hall, which will have an audience comprised of young people.
