Donald Trump

An Establishment in Panic

Patrick J. Buchanan, BernardGoldberg.com

The establishment is horrified at the Donald’s defiance because, deep within its soul, it fears that the people for whom Trump speaks no longer accept its political legitimacy or moral authority. It may rule and run the country, and may rig the system through mass immigration and a mammoth welfare state so that Middle America is never again able to elect one of its own. But that establishment, disconnected from the people it rules, senses, rightly, that it is unloved and even detested.

Trump steps up campaign spending in final stretch

Jonathan Swan, The Hill

Donald Trump finally ramped up his campaign spending in September after more than a year of living largely off the land on social media and cable TV. The GOP nominee raised $54.7 million and spent more than $70 million through the month of September – a vast increase on any previous month. He began October with $34.8 million in the bank.

Ginni Thomas: Why Trump?

Hillary Clinton’s embrace of two sets of rules would continue to denigrate America, where her limousine liberal donors, the mainstream media and Hollywood elites would benefit, while the government is turned upon the rest of us.

Conservatives Divided on Trump's Last Debate Performance

John Gizzi, Newsmax

National conservative leaders who spoke to Newmax after the final presidential debate Wednesday night clearly disagreed among themselves on just how serious was the damage Donald Trump experienced from his controversial statement about accepting the election's outcome.

Why Isn’t Donald Trump Losing Like Barry Goldwater?

David Franke, The American Conservative

So what if Trump wins the popular vote but Clinton wins the presidency in the Electoral College? I see that as a possible national disaster, especially since nobody understands the Electoral College anyway. The electorate on both sides is already more partisan and heated than I can remember since 1964, and Trump will not accept defeat as gently as Al Gore did in 2000.  The results of having two presidential winners—one by popular vote, the other in the Electoral College—could be scary.

Pence: Trump taking a 'wait-and-see approach' on election results

Lisa Hagen, The Hill

The Indiana governor said he and Trump will continue to fight for "more balanced coverage" and make sure voters are respecting the electoral process. Pence says he's "confident" they'll accept the results if the process is "fair."

Donald Trump's Best Debate of the 2016 Presidential Campaign

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Last night Trump was the winner on points. However, Trump failed to lay out a clear understanding of the two world views that are on the ballot this election. Hillary Clinton and her Democratic allies’ radical agenda for America mostly went undiscussed.

Hillary’s Most Dangerous Statement During Debate #3

Hillary Clinton's one short statement posed as a question, “What kind of rights will Americans have?” sums-up what’s at stake in this election.

It’s the System, Not the Election, That’s Rigged

David Ferguson, The American Spectator

As we reach the end of a long and contentious presidential election season, faith in government is approaching an all-time low. Far from being seen as servants of the people, many Americans now see government not as the keepers of justice and peace, but as a corrupt entity.

Finding Strength in Melania Trump

Larry Kudlow, National Review

For Hillary Clinton, I don’t see redemption. She is a corrupt political operative of the worst kind. But for Donald Trump, I may be seeing a way back. And his wife Melania is a big reason why. Melania Trump gave some remarkable cable interviews this week, and she has me looking at the awful last two weeks in a somewhat different light.

The one thing Trump should do at the final debate

Cal Thomas, Fox News

“The Clintons are criminals … and the establishment that protects them has engaged in a massive cover-up of widespread criminal activity at the State Department and the Clinton Foundation in order to keep the Clintons in power. Never in history have we seen such a cover-up as this.” Trump is right and this should be his line of attack in the third and final debate Wednesday night.

Trump seeks game-changer in last debate

Niall Stanage, The Hill

For Trump, the encounter could be his last opportunity to make a campaign-changing case against his Democratic opponent. The Republican trails by significant margins in both national and battleground state polls, and he desperately needs to change the trajectory of the race.

#NeverHillary

Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton.  We have a binary choice. One or the other will be our next president. Let's be clear if you are a Republican or a conservative and you don't vote for Trump you are helping Hillary Clinton become the next president whether you vote for her or not.

How the System Is ‘Rigged’

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

In what sense is the system rigged? Consider Big Media—the elite columnists and commentators, the dominant national press, and the national and cable networks, save FOX. Not in this writer’s lifetime has there been such blanket hatred and hostility of a presidential candidate of a major party.

The Cheap Moralizing of Never Trump

William McGurn, Wall Street Journal

Trump's voters support him because they get the contempt dripping from Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton whenever the subject is the things they cherish: faith, patriotism, the decency of ordinary citizens, and so on. Above all, they support him because they also get that the elite contempt for Donald Trump is a proxy contempt for them.

I'm a Bible-thumping etiquette teacher for Trump

Diann Catlin, USA Today

Neither eloquence nor unworldliness can save our cherished America. Radical change is needed to fix the problems that have crippled our country, especially in the last eight years. I believe the Republican platform, Trump, Pence and justices who know and uphold the Constitution will bring exactly that. But to make it happen, the etiquette police and evangelicals must put aside their reservations and vote — please.

I’m A Sexual Assault Victim Who Still Supports Trump

D.C. McAllister, The Federalist

Trump is my only option at this point to stop the Clintons and the Democratic Party, to put an end to their corruption, sexism, and political agenda that will make women less safe, less prosperous, and less free.
