    The Townhall Daily is the online version of the publication called Townhall that was started by the Heritage Foundation in 1995. Somehow, I got on their mailing list, so I usually skim the headlines every day just to see how crazy these people can get.

    This morning's version was even loonier than most of them.

    Rather than post individual links to the various stories, just read the articles by Kurt Schlicter, Derek Hunter, Chris Stigall, Emmett Tyrell, William Marshall and (last buy not least) Ann Coulter.

    https://townhall.com/

    I'm not sure which story is the craziest, but Ann Coulter's assertion that mass incarceration saved black America should be near the top of the list. Her story was on my email this morning, but has mysteriously vanished from the link posted above, which means the editor finally realized that it was too screwy even for them.

    Like Dutch has often said, I'm just shaking my old head at the nonsense that I read this morning on this site.

    There are a lot of loony characters voicing their opinion, but the looniest of the loons is Wayne Allyn Root.

    He has long contended that Barack Obama never attended Columbia when both of them were in college. Obama DID go to Occidental College in Los Angeles for his first two years, but transferred to Columbia after that.

    If you skim through his bio (see below) you'll quickly see that this guy is nuttier than a fruit cake.

    Here are a few examples:

    Root was the opening speaker for Trump's rally in Las Vegas in late October 2016 during the presidential campaign. At the rally, Root, suggested that he wished ill upon Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin, hoping they met the same ending as Thelma & Louise.

    Root said that "Trump is the greatest President for Jews and for Israel in the history of the world, not just America, he is the best President for Israel in the history of the world...and the Jewish people in Israel love him like he's the King of Israel. They love him like he is the second coming of God." Later, President Donald Trump thanked Root on Twitter on for "the very nice words" and shared what was said about him.[

    Root was a leading proponent of the conspiracy theory that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States

    During the white supremacist Unite the Right rally, Root falsely claimed that blaming white supremacist James Alex Fields Jr. for killing Heather Heyer was "such B.S. Probably paid actors & infiltrators hired by Soros. No conservative I've ever met commits violence. EVER."[31]

    On the night of the 2017 Las Vegas shooting, in which 58 people were murdered, Root tweeted: "Clearly coordinated Muslim terror attack.

    Root argued that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election is motivated by "penis envy", because "Mueller's is smaller than Trump's

    Indeed my head is tired of shaking it. Just one question: are there still normal people in this country? There must be something in the air or food what makes them nutty. A question to Arizona; Since you must by now have an clear picture of the "mental" state of this country and the total incompetence of our leader and cronies; then you must say by now; the "hell" with them all and take an long vacation on the Falkland Islands. Ha Ha!

    Since Canada is officially the most respected country in the world, moving north of the order (unless you live in Detroit) would seem to make sense. Never forget, though, that the Canadians one dollar coin is called "the loonie".

    I used to live in Canada from 1960 until 1969 in Edmonton Alberta; I just about froze to death and worked as an geophysical assistant for Shell Canada; and moved after that back to the Netherlands. I did not really liked my stay there. But must say that the government had much better social plans and healthcare; I had an accident in the extreme cold and skidded with an truck into an lamp post broke my jaw and was bleeding like an horse and had to walk through knee high snow for a couple of miles to an farm who called the ambulance. So down there you got other worries then now down in FL. But yeah what is worse "freeze" to death or have an bunch of corrupt idiots who don't care if you die from an "virus" who have no clue on how to run an country. It depends what is more important, I guess.

    Mr. Root has figured out the cause of the recent riots in our cities.

    Yep, it's George Soros.

    " There's no need to question what's happening. You can see it with your own eyes. This nationwide rioting, looting, burning and attacks on police is all clearly coordinated by allies of the Democrat Party: socialists; Marxists; communists; globalists; radical, extreme open-borders madmen. They are carrying out a detailed plan of domestic terrorism"

    "Those who provide funding are terrorists themselves. Who is providing the funding? There are many suspects. Suspect No. 1 is globalist billionaire George Soros and his Open Society Foundations. It starts there."

    Root or no "Root" it does not matter; as long as you have an total incompetent bully in the W.H. with plenty of "loyal" incompetent helpers surrounding him, then you may as well have an "virus" running around to make them even more crazy than they already are. This country needs an huge broom and lots of disinfectants to get rid of this silly idiot bunch.

    But this may not happen; corruption is "king" and everyone is profiting from it,how do you stop that?

    Today's issue had its usual collection of nonsense. Here's two quick examples:

    Just when we think Democrats have reached rock bottom, former President Barack Obama opens his mouth, then hands Democrats a shovel.

    That Obama was not struck by lightning for all the lies he told (in church, no less) during his July 30 funeral speech for Rep. John Lewis is a testament to God’s patience and grace. It’s also proof Democrats will exploit anything, including someone’s death, for political gain. Turning a funeral into a campaign rally is as slimy and cold-hearted as it gets; on par for a political party that’s become a death cult.

    https://townhall.com/columnists/susanstamperbrown/2020/08/05/there-he-goes-again-obamas-insane-funeral-speech-n2573726

    With thousands of teachers across the country currently protesting a return to the classroom because of COVID fears, Reagan’s example is particularly relevant. Like air traffic controllers, teachers sign employment contracts. While air traffic controllers contract with the federal government and teachers with local school districts, the principle is the same: perform the duties for which you were hired, or be fired.

    Teachers who refuse to teach in the setting for which they were hired – the classroom – need to stop acting like scared bunnies and grow up. If they truly are “essential” workers, as they remind us repeatedly, then they need to start behaving like other essential employees and get back to work.

    Another wacky one turned up this morning.

    Susan Stamper Brown's headline was "Ruth Bader Ginsburg was no saint".

    Her anti-abortion hysterics remind us how crazy these people are, and her bio confirms that she is simply f*****g nuts.

    Susan is an award-winning columnist who lives in Alaska. She feels safer around the grizzlies which roam her property than the leftists roaming worldwide. She has written for scores of newspapers and media publications across the U.S., including USA Today, Townhall, The Christian Post, GOPUSA, BizPac Review, and Jewish World Review. Contact Susan at writestamper@protonmail.com.

    I guess this country has the worst "growing" pains ever. As soon as "religion" gets into the picture forget any "common sense" or "science". Religion has always been an obstacle to advance life on earth. It is just about like an "virus"; it destroys peoples thinking because it indoctrinates and they will kill for it. Wars are mostly fought because religion, ask Pompeo and Pence. And don't forget wars mostly don't solve the "religious" part of it. Having an nice "gold plated pointed hat" won't help this world; "common sense" does. The people here continue the "church" nonsense, and therefore continue to meddle in peoples life's, because we've got again an "fight" about "religion" because of an Supreme Court" election. Crazy! An Supreme Court should represent all people and all religions here and follow the laws here and don't drag in "religion". This country refuses to learn what religion is all about. It always has ruined this world and never made this an better place. Amen

    Few people are crazier than Ann Coulter. This morning, she accused Chris Wallace of being a white supremacist!

    Much to my amazement, one of the columns this morning actually made sense. I'd recommend reading the entire article, but here are a few of the key points:

    And according to national polling, Joe Biden is leading incumbent President Donald Trump by up to 16 points. In the RealClearPolitics polling average, Trump is trailing Biden in every single swing state. Were the election held today, by the RealClearPolitics statistics, Biden would win 375 electoral votes, picking up states including North Carolina, Georgia, Virginia, Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.

    How is this happening? How did a doddering fool, a career politician mostly famous for his incurable logorrhea, end up in the catbird seat one month before the 2020 election?

    The answer is simple: Joe Biden understands the nature of this election. Donald Trump simply does not.

    To understand this election does not require a graduate course in political science: If the election is a referendum on President Trump, he will lose.

    That's not just because the media hate Trump and sycophantically massage Biden, though they do. It's because Trump himself steadfastly refuses to recognize the central issue of the campaign: his own centrality. Trump loves being the center of attention, and he simply refuses to cede the spotlight. Every day is a new spectacle in Trumpland, from descending in Marine One onto the White House lawn amid dramatic music to reenter quarantine to tweeting incessantly about the latest news of the day. The media hang on Trump's every word, and he appears to love that.

    But that symbiotic relationship between Trump and the media puts Trump at a dramatic disadvantage. The more people think about Trump, the less they want to.

    In 2018, Democrats seized the spotlight by unjustly and cruelly maligning Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and the polls consequently tightened; then Trump seized the spotlight back by talking about illegal immigrant caravans, and Democrats won.

    Joe Biden has learned the lesson. Biden has spent this campaign pointing at Trump. Trump, who should be pointing at Biden, is too busy pointing at himself. Unless Trump somehow suppresses his ego enough to allow Biden to become the issue, Trump is likely to exit the political stage altogether come Nov. 3.

    Looking at what happened in the last two "impeachment drama shows", then I just wonder if Biden will be able to keep defending himself day after day, if this Trump asshole is of the "hook". I only hope that the "real" courts do their work as well it is time the FBI gets of their padded Trump kissed asses; the CIA is as lazy. I'll wait and see if any of these "units" come into action; hopefully soon. The Southern District of NY should have their case ready related to Deutsche Bank; if we don't hear anything then I believe Trump "paid" some of the debt, in order to keep them quiet for a while ( his standard tactic, draw things out) So I don't believe he's in trouble because the family can last a while on all the "money" they stole from the government, the FBI etc. keeps on sleeping and refuses to investigate where all their money came from (like Saudia and the "wall" etc.) as well the "murders done by "phone" of Khashoki and Epstein and others.

    So it may take a long time before all the "shit" gets uncovered or may stay "covered".

    I've mentioned Wayne Ally Root a few times before on his thread, and continue to be amazed at hos crazy he is. This morning's column is further proof.

    Here's a few excerpts:

    " At least 74 million Americans voted for Donald Trump in the 2020 election. Everyone I know believes the number was actually much higher, but 74 million is the number the biased, "fake news" media counts as fact.

    This is the base of the Republican Party. I know what these 74 million (and probably a few more million) voters believe in. How? Because I tested my beliefs at three major GOP events in the past month where I was the keynote speaker. And I got wild, enthusiastic standing ovations at all three.

    I said, "No matter what the lying, 'fake news' media says, no matter what they try to stuff down our throats, I know President Donald J. Trump won the 2020 election."

    "They think they destroyed Trump and demoralized us. The opposite is true. We love Trump now more than ever. We know Trump was one of the greatest presidents in our country's history. And we want him back. We'd walk over hot coals for him. And that's precisely why they hate him so much."

    The "controversies" listed in the link below confirm that this guy is not playing with a full deck. However, this paragraph under "return to the Republican Party" should alarm you:

    Root was the opening speaker for Trump's rally in Las Vegas in late October 2016 during the presidential campaign. At the rally, Root, suggested that he wished ill upon Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin, hoping they met the same ending as Thelma & Louise. The lead characters in the film take their own lives by driving off a cliff. In his speech, Root said "Trump warriors" armed with "pitchforks, jack hammers and blow torches" would violently take over Washington D.C.: "We're coming to tear it down. We're coming to rip it up. We're coming to kick your ass. And we're coming to put you in prison", he said referring to a fantasy he had about Clinton and Abedin. Kellyanne Conway, Trump's campaign manager, later told CNN that Root's "conduct is completely unacceptable and does not reflect our campaign or our candidate".
