Comey Tries To Justify Giving Hillary Clinton Get Out of Jail Free Card

It is apparent that some in FBI management blindly followed what they were told to do — exonerate Hillary Clinton. The decision was so damaging to morale that you know things are bad at the FBI when Director James Comey releases a memo to all employees justifying his decision not to file charges against Hillary Clinton, but that’s exactly what happened yesterday.

Donald Trump and Phyllis Schlafly's last battle

W. James Antle, III, Washington Examiner

Did Schlafly as a nonagenarian once again identify a sea change on the Right or did she get her last pick for president wrong? Her last book could reveal her to have been ahead of her time or out of touch with the conservative movement for which she labored for so many decades.

Mark Levin reverses: ‘I’m gonna vote for Donald Trump’

Joe Concha, The Hill

After once declaring he could never support Donald Trump as the Republican nominee, Mark Levin changed his mind with a big announcement on his radio program Tuesday. Levin's endorsement comes five months after unequivocally stating, "I am not voting for Donald Trump. Period.”

Conservative Crackup Redux

Daniel J. Flynn, The American Spectator

The conservative movement largely failed as kingmaker in 2016 because the king they genuflected before in 2000 and 2004 so besmirched their philosophy. Voters decided that winning required a clean break rather than another try at the rebranding attempted in 2008 and 2012. Whether this reorientation works, only November knows. All Republican voters know before Labor Day is that it can’t work worse than in 2012 or 2008.

SOROS: Trump to win in ‘landslide’ vote, but President Hillary a ‘done deal’

Nazi Collaborator and convicted currency manipulator George Soros predicts a landslide popular vote win for Donald Trump, but says Hillary will win the electoral vote. In today's article we connect the dots to show exactly why Soros is so confident in his prediction.

Trump: Maybe we can deport Clinton

Jonathan Swan, The Hill

Trump told the raucous Phoenix crowd that as president he'd be establishing a "special deportation task force" to "find the most dangerous illegals who have evaded justice." "Just like Hillary Clinton has evaded justice," Trump added, as the Phoenix crowd roared. "Maybe they will be able to deport her."

Polls tighten in presidential race

Jonathan Easley, The Hill

Donald Trump is gaining some ground on Hillary Clinton in the polls, leaving the Democrat with a smaller lead heading into the crucial month of September. Clinton’s lead has shrunk to 4.3 points in the RealClearPolitics average, and she’s fallen short of the 50 percent mark in the last six national polls. The Democratic presidential nominee has settled into the mid-40 percent range, presenting an opportunity for her Republican rival.

Hillary Clinton’s Presidency Has Already Failed

Steve Berman, The Resurgent

Hillary Clinton’s presidency will fail. She’s spent her whole life preparing for a world absent moral foundations, beholden only to the shifting, gaslighted truths of power. Everything Hillary does will be an anticlimax, as the left devours itself until nothing remains but thoughtless tribal allegiance. I don’t have to hope that Hillary fails. She already has.

Hillary Clinton and Establishment GOP Join Forces Against the Alt-Right

The reason why Brexit resonated and Trump resonated isn’t that people are racists or too stupid to understand the arguments. The reason they resonated is that people have been so screwed by the prevailing order in such deep and fundamental and enduring ways that they can't imagine that anything is worse than preservation of the status quo.

How Does Hillary Clinton’s Head Not Explode?

Amid all the speculation about Hillary Clinton having Parkinson’s Disease, a subdural hematoma or other neurological condition there’s another explanation for Hillary Clinton’s health issues; guilt. The kind of guilt that we see affecting Hillary Clinton’s health is not the legal kind – mens rea – rather it is the soul-searing guilt that psychiatrists have found actually makes one physically ill.

It ain't over till it's over

Patrick J. Buchanan, WND.com

Trump believes populism and nationalism are the future of America, and wants to keep saying so. Nor is this stance inconsistent with recapturing the ground lost in the weeks since he was running even with Hillary Clinton.

Trump Beginning To Meet Viguerie’s Foolproof Test

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
“Who you walk with tells me a lot about who you are” is an aphorism that I have long applied as a foolproof test of whether a candidate or elected official is going to govern as a conservative. This might be seen as a companion or corollary to another one of my favorite rules of politics – personnel is policy.

Establishment in full meltdown over Trump's new campaign hires

David M. Drucker, Washington Examiner

For some Republicans, the Trump campaign has turned into a bad joke — on them. "I'm tired of pretending like we're talking about something real," said a veteran Republican strategist with ties to GOP leaders. "I heard that Mickey and Minnie were serious about bringing Donald Duck and Goofy back in the fold after a falling out over Euro Disney."

'Let Trump Be Trump'? Who Else Could He Be?

Heather Wilhelm, Real Clear Politics

Trump will be Trump, and voters should be thankful for this: Finally, perhaps the usual suspects in the Republican Party will finally stop attempting to sell us an imaginary proto-Trump. Voters, meanwhile, can pay attention, do their research, and then take or leave the real version. Unlike the various machinations of the pro-Trump forces inside the GOP, it’s the honest thing to do.

Roger Stone: You Bet Elections Can Be “Rigged”

That the entire political system is rigged to favor Clinton is self-evident, but now Trump confidant Roger Stone has published a column in DC’s political journal The Hill documenting how elections can be rigged and the evidence that some actually have been rigged.

7 Myths about Trump's 'Doomed' Path to the White House

Peter Navarro, The National Interest

The question is whether the elites will finally get it right and turn Trump into an embarrassing historical footnote—or once again be spectacularly wrong. The answer will inevitably hinge on whether each of “Seven Pillars of Beltway Wisdom” turn out to be on point—or wildly off the mark.

How Trump Can Become One of Our Greatest Presidents (cont.)

Lew Uhler and Peter Ferrara, The American Spectator

This is the second in a four-part series on those few simple things America desperately needs. Part One focused on perhaps the most important Presidential responsibility: appointing high quality Justices for nearly half the Supreme Court, and judges for the rest of the federal judiciary balancing out the radical judges Obama has appointed since 2009. This Part Two explains the next priority: tax reform providing for sharply lower tax rates, especially on overtaxed American business and investment.

The great silent majority may surprise Trump, Clinton and us all

Monica Crowley, Washington Times

The Republican Party is now the party of action, symbolized by its frenetic, unconventional nominee, and the Democratic Party is the passive one, embodied by its tired champion of the rejected status quo. In a change election, the choice could not be clearer.

Next President Faces Possible Obamacare Meltdown

Sarah Ferris, The Hill

The incoming administration will take office just as the latest ObamaCare enrollment tally comes in, delivering a potentially crucial verdict about the still-shaky healthcare marketplaces. The fourth ObamaCare signup period begins about one week before Election Day, and it will end about one week before inauguration on Jan. 20. After mounting complaints from big insurers about losing money this year, the results could serve as a kind of judgment day for ObamaCare, experts say.

“When we elect lawmakers, we give them incredible power over issues that matter to us. Like health care and reproductive rights, education and climate change, immigration and the economy, and so much more. Pledge to vote, and we’ll send you a reminder so that election day doesn’t pass you by,” Planned Parenthood’s website stated.
