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.

It ain't over till it's over

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”

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.

Planned Parenthood to Register Voters as They Enter Abortion Clinics

Melanie Hunter, CNS News

“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.

Trump Is Right: Elections Can Be Rigged

Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator

To think that President Obama — a son of Chicago whose entire political career was based on a Chicago Democratic Party where voter fraud, aka rigging elections, was described by an FBI agent as “an accepted way of life in Chicago” — thinks Trump’s warning is “ridiculous” is not only ridiculous but laughably disingenuous.

Josh Gelernter, National Review

Will Obama – Trump Voters Decide The Election?

“I’m fed up with the old, fat, white, gray-haired men who run things,” said a New Jersey union electrician. “I’m white, but those guys are about entitlement, and Hillary falls right into that category, even though she’s not a man.”

Trump's Road Still Open

Patrick J. Buchanan, BernardGoldberg.com

What does Trump need to do? In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, “Keep your eyes on the prize” — the presidency. And between Trump and the presidency today stands not Paul Ryan, but Hillary Clinton. The Donald, his campaign, and party need to cease attacking one another to the elation of a hostile media, and redirect all their fire on the sole obstacle between them and a Republican sweep.

Sen. Richard Black, Virginia Co-Chairman of the Ted Cruz for President Campaign Letter to Voters

While anyone can take potshots at political decisions made by the Trump campaign, one thing is clear: Hillary Clinton will destroy every vestige of freedom remaining in America. I am not willing to have that happen. That is why I now support Donald Trump for President of the United States.

Trump on Offense

William McGurn, Wall Street Journal

The truth is that Mr. Trump’s offense is in good part a creature of the campaigns Democrats have run against Republicans for decades.
