Transition to Trump: Insiders find themselves on the outside in Donald Trump’s world

Donald Trump’s election did not squelch differences of opinion on who should be part of his administration, including the top names on his White House staff. Plus, Should Trump include Democrats in his administration?

Trump's Secret Weapon: Obama

Kimberley Strassel, Wall Street Journal

Deep Democratic fissures have been on display for years, with Mrs. Clinton’s rancorous primary against Bernie Sanders only the most recent example. But the media chose to ignore this and instead to obsess about largely superficial GOP divisions. All along this election has been portrayed as a referendum on Mr. Trump. Tuesday’s results are far better viewed as a thundering repudiation, at every level, of Mr. Obama’s governing and policies.

'What goes around' principle comes back to haunt minority party

Editors, Washington Examiner

The restoration of constitutional proprieties should be an area in which the parties in Congress can cooperate. With America so divided, it would be heartening to see cooperation on a project to trim future presidents' sails, and Republicans will find themselves in an excellent position to start the process.

Time for Trump to deliver one more surprise

Editors, Washington Examiner

America has rarely been so divided. It falls to Trump to heal those divisions. Few people, even among his supporters, might think of him as right for that emollient role. But he has surprised everyone repeatedly in the past 18 months, and he now needs to do so again.

Has the Public Finally Tuned Out Dems' Racial Attacks?

Rich Lowry, New York Post

Confronted with Trump, Democrats don’t have any radioactive denunciations in reserve. They have all been deployed against a couple of generations of Republicans whose politics and characters were starkly different than Trump’s. And will surely be deployed once again – the charges never change, just the target.

Illegal trial lawyer donations lift Democrat finances

Editors, Washington Examiner

Voters should be especially skeptical when Democrats pretend to represent the little guy against special interests. They are all, from Elizabeth Warren to Hillary Clinton, neck-deep in special interest money.

8 Times Liberals Claimed An Election Was Stolen Or Rigged

Bre Payton, The Federalist

As John Gibbs wrote, voter fraud is very much a real thing. According to a 2012 Pew Charitable Trust report, roughly 18 million voter registrations are either “significantly inaccurate” or invalid — enough to tip an election. Yet somehow when Donald Trump echoes the concerns about election integrity many Americans have had for years, it’s totally insane. I guess election-rigging only matters when Democrats lose.

The Democrats' token Catholic

Editors, Washington Examiner

As long as Kaine is comfortable parading his Catholicity for a national political audience, we are comfortable pointing out that Clinton would never have chosen him as her running mate if he took his Church's teachings seriously in his political career.

What’s Wrong With Them? The Misguided Establishmentarian Right

Esther Goldberg, The American Spectator

The establishment Right has always felt insecure in the face of the more polished, witty, cosmopolitan Left. It is they who get the best tables at Le Cirque, they who get to hobnob with glamorous movie stars and sports figures. It is they who get to look down on conservatives simply on account of what they believe.

David A. Keene: If Hillary Clinton Wins We Face A Future In Which Our Fundamental Liberties Will Be In Constant Jeopardy

Donald Trump was not my first choice as the year began, but he won the Republican nomination and any hope we have of turning things around depend on supporting him this fall. I don't agree with his every position, but he is all that stands between us and a future in which our fundamental rights and freedoms will be in constant jeopardy. It's really just that simple.

Trump Prevails: Fights Clinton, Media And GOP Establishment

Trump made creditable, if somewhat disjointed, statements of his core policies, but policy details weren’t the most important things he communicated; his most important point was stressing time and again that he is the candidate of change and ending the destructive policies of Clinton, Obama and DC’s self-appointed establishment elite.

Do not allow the Trump audio tape to distract from what is really at stake this year

As Americans, we can object to what Donald Trump said on the now infamous audio tape from 2005 without losing sight of what this year’s election is really all about -- conservative and Republican policies versus liberal Democrat policies.

The Most Corrupt Media Ever

Rush Limbaugh, The Rush Limbaugh Show

"I'm sick and tired of this kind of phony baloney, plastic banana, good-time rock 'n' roller obvious character assassination work. I'm tired of it working. I'm sick and tired of it working. I'm sick and tired of the corruption winning. I'm sick and tired of the fraudsters getting away with it because not enough of the American people know enough or care enough to react to it in the right way, or for whatever reason."

Gloves Off – The Media Is Liberalism’s Achilles Heel

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

We can resist. Let’s start by de-normalizing the mainstream media. Ask people who have newspapers lying around why they let that poisonous mix of lies and propaganda into their homes. Line your birdcage with something besides Time. Refuse to watch libfascist cable shows, and tell sponsors why you won’t buy products that subsidizes liberal lies and manipulation.

The Soros-Funded Voter Fraud Conspiracy Outed: Part 1

Our friend election law expert J. Christian Adams and the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) have produced a report including documents that prove at least 1,000 instances of voter fraud showing aliens registering or voting in the key swing state of Virginia. And, says Adams, there are certainly far more to be found if Democrat election officials would stop impeding the research.

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.

Tim Kaine Proves Rush Limbaugh’s Point

Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator

Donald Trump would be well advised to call out Hillary Clinton with Rush Limbaugh’s idea. Here’s the trade: amnesty for illegals, but no citizenship — no right to vote — for 10, 15, or 25 years.

Hillary's Neoliberals

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Neoliberals — along with some members of the conservative establishment — consider Republican party nominee Donald Trump to be toxic. Many of them are supporting Clinton because they do not like Trump’s idea of building a wall on the Mexican border to stop illegal immigration. Nor do they appreciate Trump’s slogans about “putting America first” when negotiating trade deals, conducting alliances, and avoiding optional foreign interventions. They hate Trump’s crude, take-no-prisoners invective more than Hillary’s polished and refined lying.

A Republican “Surrender” To Hillary?

Jamie Weinstein a “senior writer” at The Daily Caller proposes another #NeverTrump fraternity house prank: Republicans simply "surrendering" our country to Hillary Clinton.

Democrats Warn: Your Gun Is a Public Health Threat

David Catron, The American Spectator

By converting gun violence from a law and order issue to a health crisis, Hillary Clinton and her accomplices hope to achieve two goals: Move the public’s focus away from crime prevention, a task at which Democrats are notoriously inept, and convince us that it’s all about scientific progress rather than increasing the power of the federal government.
