Brent Bozell: What Worries Conservatives Most About Hillary Clinton?

There is every reason to believe that if elected president, Hillary Clinton will oversee the greatest disregard for the rule of law ever, and woe to that person who rises to question her. With the rule of law firmly discarded, America becomes an oligarchy ruled by a dictator. That is what worries conservatives most.

An Appeal from the New to the Old Liberals

F.H. Buckley, National Review

Yesterday’s liberals were people who stood up for what was right, who did great things, whose errors (e.g. the Great Society) were mistakes of the mind and not the heart. Mostly, I miss their faith in the future, their exhilarating belief in the country’s greatness, so often absent in the Republican party of today — with the singular exception of its candidate for the presidency.

The Viguerie Take On The Trump -- Clinton Debate

For those voters who want to change our country's leadership Trump helped them feel that he was an acceptable alternative. Trump did last night what Reagan did in 1980 for those undecided voters --he showed he was an acceptable alternative.

Gary Bauer: Trump on a Number of Issues is BETTER Than What Passes for Conservatism Today

This November, voters who cherish faith, family and freedom have a very clear choice:  Voting for Donald Trump gives us a chance to restore America.  Not voting or dividing the conservative vote by supporting a third party candidate only empowers the left, and likely means the end of conservatism in America.

Ted Cruz Proves He Is The Greater Man

In making what he called the agonizing choice to endorse former rival Donald Trump after Trump’s scorched earth primary campaign, in which Trump and his supporters attacked Senator Cruz’s wife and father, Ted Cruz has shown he is a greater man than are his most vehement detractors and many of his most admiring supporters.

Hail Hillary: Is There A Clinton Progressive Police State In America's Future?

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
In my new online series and companion booklet on the 2016 election conservative leaders weigh in to explain the threat the election of Hillary Clinton would pose to constitutional liberty, traditional American values and the conservative worldview, and why they plan to vote for Donald Trump.

The DC Establishment Is The Party Of War

Neither party establishment is prepared to advance a strategy for victory, neither party establishment is prepared to successfully “wage peace.” Only Donald Trump was prepared to say that endless war is not just political folly, but an indecent sacrifice of American lives and treasure.

Hillary Clinton and Pardongate

Robert Zapesochny, The American Spectator

With a presidential debate looming, I doubt any of the moderators will ask Hillary a question about presidential pardons. None of them will say, “Secretary Clinton, even the Democrats wouldn’t defend the Marc Rich pardon. Will you promise that there will be no pardons for sale in your administration? How can you guarantee that?”

Clinton air war fails to sink Trump

Niall Stanage, The Hill

Hillary Clinton’s campaign and its allies are outspending their Republican counterparts by a factor of about five to one, according to a new analysis released Tuesday. But the former secretary of State has failed to put away Donald Trump, and many anxious Democrats are baffled as to why the race remains so close. Part of the reason may be that TV advertising — often the single biggest budget item within a campaign — is losing its effectiveness.

The Bush family's lament

Eli Stokols, Politico

Over a 24-hour span that began with Jeb Bush's surprising and sardonic cameo in Sunday's Emmy Awards broadcast and Monday night’s reports that his father, former President George H.W. Bush, had told a family friend privately that he intended to support Hillary Clinton, the Bushes returned to the headlines, and are giving Trump just the establishment foil he so capably exploits.

We Establish the Connection Between Minnesota, New York and New Jersey Muslim Terror Attacks

The lie in the Obama-Clinton narrative about the global jihad movement’s alleged “selective” use of religious texts to justify its actions is that terrorism and sexual slavery and everything that goes with them are not inventions of ISIS, or “violent extremists,” they are right there in the Qur’an – and in graphic terms that cannot be misunderstood or taken out of context.

Donald Trump’s Death Struggle With the Press

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Do the major media understand that in their determination, bordering on desperation, to kill Trump, they are killing their credibility? And as they are losing credibility they are losing the country.

What’s More Depressing: Hillary’s Campaign Or The Thought Of Her As President?

The vision of the future offered by Mrs. Clinton is more like one of the more depressing chapters in Ayn Rand’s classic novel Atlas Shrugged than “Morning in America.” But what's even more depressing is that when Donald Trump and his supporters are correct about the threats facing our country, the establishment media is so obsessed with defeating Trump that they attack him or claim he is jumping to conclusions when he is right.

The Keys to Unlocking the Election

Robert W Merry, The American Conservative

The voters, exercising their collective franchise, bring sound judgment to the task of choosing their leaders, that their decisions are based on big-picture considerations and not trivia, and that the country’s referendum guidance system has remained consistent through the country’s presidential history. Given that, the keys that predict victory could pose bad news for Clinton.

Trump’s Michigan Surge Confirmed And Explained

Hillary Clinton's lead in Michigan has fallen 7 points in the past month. An exclusive new Detroit Free Press/WXYZ-TV poll shows Trump has moved close to tying Clinton in a state that hasn't backed a Republican nominee since 1988.

Don’t look now: Donald Trump has all the momentum in the 2016 race

Chris Cillizza, Washington Post

Clinton still has — and will continue to have — more paths to the presidency. But, for a candidate and a campaign that looked moribund a month ago, Trump has regained his footing quite nicely and put himself back into serious contention with the first debate approaching. That's pretty impressive.

How And Why Trump Can Win Michigan

The combination of Ford’s announcement that it is moving small car production to Mexico, Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” gaffe, concerns over her health and trustworthiness, Trump’s aggressive campaigning in Michigan, and the intensity of opposition to the flooding of the state with refugees may mean that Trump has an opportunity to win the state in November.

The future of the Supreme Court

Sen. Orrin Hatch, Washington Times

Through his or her appointments, the next president will determine whether the federal judiciary respects its proper, limited role in our self-governing democracy, or whether we continue to slide ever further toward judicial tyranny. There is no more important issue in this election.

Clinton’s Republican turncoats expect something in return

Darren Samuelsohn, Politico

Access, appointments and influence over a Clinton administration’s policies is the just dessert that a growing slate of Republican policy wonks, Capitol Hill veterans and former GOP administration officials say they expect for endorsing and in some cases raising money for the Democratic presidential nominee. And they’re already getting it.

The Bumpy Ride of our Flight 93

Roger Kimball, PJ Media

I was wrong when I predicted that Donald Trump would not be the candidate. I hope I will be proved wrong about my prediction that, were he the candidate, he would not win. The trends are promising, I think, but it would be foolish to deny that there are madmen in the cockpit or that many of the passengers are scared, apathetic, deluded, or just plain cowardly. We need a real-life Decius Mus who is willing to say “Let’s roll” and make a concerted charge. It may be the last chance we have.
