    Things keep changing. A few months ago I thought Trump would not run. Then I thought he would run. Now, I don’t think so once again. And one of the tells is the subtle shot he took at DeSantis over vaccines. The fact is that Trump, if he runs, is not a shoo-in. And this could be an epic battle for the chance to beat Kamala Harris like a drum in 2024. And, at least according to people like you who took my most recent Twitter poll, Trump is not a shoo-in. He’s dropped to just one-third support from nearly...

    Editor's note: this piece was authored by Addison Hosner.Regardless of your opinion on the outcome of the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, one thing cannot be denied — from a legal standpoint, the verdict was correct. You don’t have to like it, you don’t even have to tolerate it, but you have to understand: Legal decisions are not made with the emotional state of proponents and dissidents in mind — nor should they be. Unfortunately, as a nation, it seems we’re becoming less and less able to separate facts from our feelings. In order to address difficult conversations in the future regarding...

    Frankly, it’s appalling to see how fanatically eager some parents are to inject their children with the experimental gene therapy, like so many lab rats. Hyperbole, you say? Conspiracy theory? Don’t take my word for it. Here’s one of the trained seals at the FDA, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pfizer, Inc., as that august body “debated” approving the shots for kids: “We’re never going to learn how safe the vaccine is unless we start giving it and that’s just the way it goes. That’s how we found out about complications of other vaccines.” Thank you, Dr. Pelosi. A curious and...

    The great Abraham Lincoln is credited with introducing the quote, “I laugh because I must not cry...” Mike Kerrigan in the Wall Street Journal points to his own antidote and saving grace for these trying times--rock music. He concludes, “Maybe the peaceful, easy feelings that inevitably follow these listening sessions are holier than I once thought…a kind of self-care before I knew what that was.” Like music, it is a grand social lubricant. As both a consumer of and contributor to Townhall, it is both my pleasure and privilege that all of us offer. I believe it is time we...
  • White House walks back Biden's town hall words: Clarifies he does NOT have the power to mobilize National Guard to fix supply chain crisis and says he overstepped the mark with vow to defend Taiwan from China

    The White House has walked back a number of remarks President Biden made in a CNN town hall Thursday night. A White House official said that the Biden administration is 'not actively pursuing the use of the National Guard on a federal level.' 'Requesting the use of the National Guard at the state level is under the purview of governors,' the official clarified, according to multiple news outlets. 'The answer is yes,' the president said, asked if he would send in the guard to alleviate supply chain issues that are leading to product shortages and rampant inflation. 'Absolutely, positively,' he...

    President Biden is being dragged on social media after a moment in his CNN town hall performance that has users comparing him to the cartoon “Beavis and Butthead.” While listening to a question from CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Biden stood on the stage with his arms bent in front of him and fists closed. Dozens of netizens took to Twitter sharing an image of Biden in the position along with a picture of Beavis, who is known for the trademark jittery pose. “Biden is straight comedy! Uhhhh Beavis……” former Australian NBA player Andrew Bogut tweeted with a laughing face emoji. Social...

    President Biden is set to participate in a CNN town hall in Baltimore this week where he will face questions from an “invitation-only audience” — as his administration juggles uniting the Democratic Party, a worsening border crisis and supply-chain bottlenecks creating empty shelves and threatening the on-time arrival of holiday gifts. On Monday, CNN announced the 90-minute town hall, which will be moderated by Anderson Cooper and air at 8 p.m. ET Thursday on the network. The president, who has recently been traveling across the country touting his “Build Back Better” agenda, could face questions regarding a number of crises...

    The US media establishment “moved heaven and earth” to make President Joe Biden seem presidential at the CNN town hall, according to Sky News Digital Editor Jack Houghton. “In America we are witnessing this issue played out in reverse as the gushing media establishment moves heaven and earth to make President Joe Biden seem presidential," he said. “As Biden fronted the CNN town hall this week, his chief stenographer Don Lemon was on the case. And boy did Don come prepared with some tough questions for the ‘big guy’.” Biden was asked to name one extraordinary moment since becoming president...

    CNN’s heavily promoted town hall event with President Biden failed to resonate with Americans on Wednesday night, as it got thumped by Fox News and even finished with a smaller audience than MSNBC. The CNN Biden town hall, moderated by Don Lemon, averaged only 1.5 million viewers from 8-9:30 p.m. ET, while Fox News averaged 2.7 million viewers during the same time period. MSNBC averaged 1.6 million sets of eyeballs, which pushed CNN’s chat with the president to last place among relevant cable news stations. Fox News beat CNN by a staggering 83 percent during the Biden town hall with...

    During his Wednesday night CNN town hall, President Joe Biden talked about a “push to eliminate” 9mm pistols that have an ammunition capacity beyond that of which the left approves. Biden said, “The idea you need a weapon that can have the ability to fire 20, 30, 40, 50, 120 shots from that weapon, whether it’s a 9mm pistol or whether it’s a rifle, is ridiculous. I’m continuing to push to eliminate the sale of those things.”

    I voted for Donald Trump in 2016 and 2020 because he was the best candidate. I did not vote for him because he was perfect. If he is the Republican candidate in 2024, I will vote for him again, because it is inconceivable that any Democrat Marxist in the known universe will be acceptable. But I pray that he is not available to receive my vote. And it’s not because, as my brother accurately suggests, he’s damaged goods. Consider the Parable of the Central Park Skating Rink.“Once upon a time there was an ice skating rink in Central Park that...

    Welcome back, Carter. Anyone want to party like it's 1979? Okay, at least in 1979 we weren't locked down, masked up, and socially distanced. But other than that, there wasn't much to celebrate. The economy was in the tank, inflation was rampant, gas lines were long, daubers were down, and no one in the White House knew what to do about any of it. A new term had to be coined for something thought impossible/oxymoronic..."stagflation." Yes, even as the economy was slowing down, inflation was rampant, an unprecedented pairing of economic indicators. And today? The economy is in the tank,...

    Imagine General Dwight Eisenhower on June 6, 1944, speaking to the troops and after saying, “You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hope and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you,” he tosses in a, “But not Italians, or Irish, and certainly not any of you from California because Californians suck. I hope they get shot. When the bullets start flying, use those people as human shields.” How would that go over? Not well. Would you follow that guy into...

    Maine Republican Senator Susan Collins toured the U.S.-Mexico border overnight with a delegation led by Texas Republican Senators Ted Cruz and John Cornyn. The trip continues through Mission, Texas today with a boat tour, but they've already seen the crisis first hand. At $6000 per person with 3000 crossings in a 24 hour period, cartels are making approximately 18 million a day. Townhall's Julio Rosas has been reporting from the border for weeks and has watched human smugglers bring illegal immigrants across the Rio Grande in rafts.

    President Joe Biden had several cringeworthy moments at a CNN town hall event Tuesday night in Wisconsin. 1. Biden claimed at one point that “minorities … don’t know how to use, know how to get online.” 2. After his comments about American minorities, Biden moved on to the topic of Chinese minorities and China’s related human rights abuses against Uyghur Muslims, who are widely believed to live in concentration camp-like facilities within China. Biden explained he’s “not going to speak out against … what he’s [President Xi Jinping] is doing with the Uyghurs.” He then reiterated by saying, “He [Xi]...
