Tulp Takes Town Hall Pledge

This post is sponsored & authored by James Tulp. Republican candidate 
for the 3rd Congressional District.

Today, I was pleased to be the first- and so far only-Republican in the race for the US House of Representatives, MS-03, to sign the Town Hall Pledge.

It's very simple: The citizens are the boss. The citizens pay the salaries of members of Congress and they get to decide who they want to hire and fire.

According to the Town Hall Project, my opponent, Michael Guest, has not held a single Town Hall event his entire time in office.

To not give your constituents the opportunity to face you and ask you tough questions about your job performance is disrespectful to the citizens of our Republic.

I'm a firm believer in what G.K. Chesterton wrote about politicians: "What we should try to do is make politics as local as possible. Keep the politicians near enough to kick them."

My campaign is about the citizens taking control over the traditional power brokers. I pledge to you that when in office I will always make myself available to the citizens of Mississippi District 3 for criticism, correction, and accountability.

I ask that you please vote Tulp on March 10th.

Any politician who's too scared to do a town hall is worthless

Anyone in the know have some polling on this race? I'm betting Tulp doesn't break 10%. Also, thank you for turning on comments KF.

Pledges are useless, how many times did you pledge a donation and never follow through?

Kingfish said...

Thank Tulp. Whether comments are turned on or off is up to the sponsor.

Hey, James, I pledge to vote for your opponent .... along with 80+ percent of republican primary voters in D3.

I'm in NE Jackson and you have my vote. I voted Guest last time. He campaigned and fund raised weekly in Eastover and hasn't impressed at all.

I don't know Tulp, but I like what I'm hearing. I'll vote for him. I don't personally know Guest, but I know his type. And we've already got too many empty suits in D.C.

This dude is Shawn O’Hara with pretty hair & literacy.

Guest has voted with Trump 97% of the time, but that makes him a squish in this dork’s view.

We already have a Chris McDaniel, Mr. Tulp.

I don't give a crap about town hall meetings and a candidates platitudes. I care about what a representative does for his constituents. In addition to actively working on conservative legislation in D.C., Michael Guest was very responsive when I asked for help to resolve a federal regulatory issue that, if not handled in a timely manner, would have threatened the jobs of 200+ employees in Mississippi. And to answer the obvious question, no, I haven't made any contributions to his campaign. Michael helped because it was the right thing to do for Mississippians. He has earned my vote!

If you actually listen to Michael Guest he is very unimpressive and not a good "representative" of our state

I like how Tulp has shown Guest's voting record. Guest actually voted to condemn President Trump, which is bad. Tulp would never do that, which is good. I think Tulp would be a strong leader.

" I don't give a crap about town hall meetings "

Me either.

It's a yankee term.
An old New England Puritan phrase meaning 'a gathering to bitch'.

The term has been co-opted into a modern day buzz word for a Q&A session in the meeting room of a local motel just of an interstate highway.

Nothing against Tulp.
I'm sure he'd be fine in that position.

But I think Guest shouldn't have any problem winning reelection.
It comes down to money, and Guest has much more of it.

I'm voting for Tulp because Boomers and GenXers have been in power a long time and we have nothing to show except fewer rights and less sovereignty. You people are a disgrace.

Anonymous said...

I like Guest but I'm voting for Tulp. Tulp is smarter. Guest is pretty good but Tulp will be better.

How can you represent your district without meeting with the people of your district? Haven’t seen or heard from Guest until James Tulp started putting pressure on him to actually do his job. Guess Guest has been too busy lining his pockets with debt collections to hold town hall meetings. We can do better. https://www.themarshallproject.org/2018/02/07/mississippi-moonlighting

Guest is a dud but far better than that ZERO Harper. Seriously, what in the hell did Harper get accomplished in 10 years besides brown nosing the herd RINO leaders like Boehner and Ryan?

Well 3:36,would it be asking too much if you could provide at least one example to support
your conclusion ?

This has gotta be the first time a Mississippi politician ever quoted GK Chesterton. Say no more. Got my vote.

Tulp has my vote. Can someone tell me what Guest has done while in office? I haven’t seen a thing. He comes across to me as a phoney empty suit.

Anonymous said...

Tulp is actually better than Guest, but he does not have $$$ or the name. I see him to make a splash and in 20 years do something great. Go James!

I see where Tulp(28) is a New Jersey native and only moved to Mississippi in 2015, yet he knows what is the best for Mississippi? I find that super odd. I can guarantee you a Mississippian isn't moving to Jersey for 5 years and trying to tell them what to do.

Both men seem to be good candidates for congress.

Kingish, why not publish my comments that are truthful? Besides a failed film career and a radio host, what has the 28 year old Tulp done?

1) Tulp is from New Jersey and has only been in Mississippi since 2015. 4 Years is a short time for someone to be telling us what we need to do, especially from the eyes of a person who is from New Jersey. You think New Jersey would listen to someone who's been there 4 years from Mississippi?

2) Guest voted once against Trump and that was on a spending bill. That is the true definition of a conservative.

Tulps attacks on Guest are misleading and incorrect, at best.

Anonymous said...

Failed film career? You're talking out your a**. Tulp was the youngest Key AD working in Atlanta before moving here because he loves Mississippi and wanted to get out of the liberal industry. You've obviously never listened to his show.

Besides, I'd rather someone who chose Mississippi because he loves it. How often do you hear about outsiders actually want to come here. We should encourage that as long as they're not bringing their yankee crap which Tulp obviously isn't

Mississippi needs some fresh outside perspective. Our own inbred homegrown attitudes sure the hell aren’t working.

Well what we do know is District 3 is all about Northern Republicans verses Southern Republicans I think the whole DHS scheme and scandal has shed light on this state Republican party the big PAC Money and Rankin County and Madison county connections have controlled the state long enough Tulp is a good candidate and has proven to have the record straight let's just pray he gets a fair shake cause Guest is not it !

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets.
