Townhall Review – October 27, 2018
Dennis Prager is with John Zmirak, senior editor of The Stream to take a close look at that caravan of migrants heading our way. Hugh Hewitt and Senator Ted Cruz talk about the “suspicious packages” that have been sent to Democrats and the Left’s hatred of Donald Trump. Hugh Hewitt and Senator Ben Sasse examine how all the rhetoric is turning dangerous. Is requiring voter ID racist? Larry Elder has a perspective from the side not normally heard from on the issue…the minorities themselves. Hugh Hewitt talks with Eric Metaxas about his latest book, Donald Drains the Swamp. Michael Medved interviews author, reporter, and former marijuana addict Neal Pollack. Dennis Prager opines on the left’s “mob mentality,” and transgender male athletes competing with women athletes.Read More »
Conservatives who are disinclined to vote on November 6 should take a brief history tour.
When Barack Obama was about to become President in 2009 he said, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”
Eight years later, his prediction had nearly been fulfilled:
- His vaunted health care proposal had been passed—and was already well on its way towards collapsing
- America was weaker militarily
Had Hillary Clinton followed in Obama’s wake, who knows what else we’d be facing…
Thanks to the Trump Administration and a Republican Congress, U.S. world leadership is back, the economy is strong; and rogue states are in check.
But a Democrat-led House promises to undo those accomplishments.
We simply cannot afford a Speaker Pelosi.
Be sure to vote. And vote Republican!Read More »

Hewitt with Eric Metaxas, fellow Salem host and author of, “Donald Drains the Swamp.”
You know that recent massive market sell-off?—The one that dropped over 1,000 points from the Dow in just 2 days? I was a reminder that –when it comes to the economy—we’re not out of the woods yet. And if Democrats win the mid-terms, we could get more shocks like we saw in early October.
The polarized politics of our day, the mob tactics, and the attacks on the President and his party have dominated the news.
I fear we’ve lost sight of the economic reasons to vote in November.
The tax cut passed last year and boosted every sector of the economy. Republicans want to pass another one which could extend those gains for years. Democrats want to repeal the last one.
Republicans want to unleash business; Democrats want to tighten the leash.
The election is on us: If you’re interested in a strong economy and a strong stock market, you need to vote for growth policies in November.Read More »
435 House and 33 Senate seats. 36 governorships. 6,665 state offices and tens of thousands of local ones. And you ask what’s at stake in the 2018 elections?
There’s more: important ballot measures like the gas tax in California, carbon emissions in Washington, Medicaid expansion and voting rights.
Beyond the direct effects of your vote lie other questions. If we split the House and Senate, will anything be passed in the next two years? Even though Donald Trump is not on the ballot, this election will largely be a referendum on his performance.
It’s embarrassing but, according to the Pew Research Center, voter turnout in the U.S. is only 26th out of 32 democratic countries.
Isn’t there enough at stake for you to vote? Believe me, this is not a year to be disengaged. Turn out and do your part.Read More »
Something emerged from the recent Kavanaugh hearings which makes conservatives grateful. The conduct of the Democrats added clarity to voters.
For example: We now know the Left’s definition of “being mean.” It’s not mean to berate conservatives in restaurants, in front of elevators and in other public places. And it’s not mean to call a conservative judge a rapist without basis and to lampoon his pre-adolescent child in a political cartoon.
On the other hand, it is very mean to have questions about the credibility of a woman who has made a charge without corroboration.
We now also know the Left’s definition of justice: A conservative, male judge may not defend himself against unprovable allegations that will ruin his career, family and reputation.
And: Only liberal justices may make partisan statements and maintain their impartiality.
Americans have been given an eye-opener as the November 6th election approaches.Read More »
