Donald Trump

Evangelicals, unhappy with Trump, still stick with him

Chad Groening and Steve Jordahl, OneNewsNow

What Trump needs to do in the coming days and weeks, says veteran GOP activist Richard Viguerie, is make it clear that the Nov. 8 election is about more than two individuals running for office. "They're not voting for him or Hillary so much as they are for a worldview. And that (Trump) represents a worldview radically different than she."

Falwell: We can't get sidetracked on whether Trump is a good person

Jessie Hellmann, The Hill

"We're not electing a pastor. We're electing a president, and that's what we need to keep our eyes on," Falwell said. "Our country is going to suffer is we get sidetracked on these rabbit trails about 'is this person a good person, is that person a good person?' It's not about that. It's about what are their positions on the issues." Falwell called Trump a "changed man" with flaws like everyone else.

The selective moral outrage of the left

Madison Gesiotto, Washington Times

Politics should not determine our moral outrage, nor should our political affiliations cause us to set different standards for our political opponents. What is right is right for everyone and what is wrong is wrong for everyone. Enough is enough. Nobody should be held above the law and standards should be same for every American.

Trump Denies It All: Calls Groping Claims A ‘Coordinated Character Assassination’

Derek Hunter, Daily Caller

Calling the allegations “a completely false, coordinated character assassination” attempt, Senior Communications Advisor Jason Miller added, “It is absurd to think that one of the most recognizable business leaders on the planet with a strong record of empowering women in his companies would do the things alleged in this story, and for this to only become public decades later in the final month of a campaign for president should say it all.”

We Conservatives Must Nationalize the Election or Lose

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
We conservatives must take action NOW to nationalize this election. The defeats of Jerry Ford, George HW Bush, Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney, as well as the 1998 and 2006 congressional elections are proof that running a content-free campaign and refusing to nationalize the election is a losing strategy for Republicans, especially in a “change election” year like 2016.

Dear Speaker Ryan: Resign

Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator

Your most recent statement about Donald Trump makes it vividly clear that with less than a month to go before a major presidential election — an election that will determine the fate of the Supreme Court, the economy, and America’s role in a world where it faces a mortal enemy — you are refusing to lead and cannot follow the voters of your own party. Which leaves only one honorable choice: get out of the way.

Trump: Media are 'cogs in a corporate, political machine'

Lisa Hagen, The Hill

At a rally in Panama City, Fla., the GOP presidential nominee didn’t acknowledge his public feud with Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and instead largely trained his fire on the “media establishment.” “The media is an extension of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, it’s just one more way that the system is rigged,” Trump said Tuesday night.

Memo to Conservatives: Stop Helping Hillary

Autry J. Pruitt, The American Spectator

The message to conservative purists who think of themselves as so intellectually high and mighty is simple; stop supporting Hillary Clinton via your continued attacks on the Republican presidential nominee. You don’t have to support Donald Trump but you also don’t have to keep trying to tamp down support for him.

The Donald Lives!

Patrick J. Buchanan,

What did Trump accomplish in 18 hours? He rattled Hillary Clinton, firmed up and rallied his base, halted the stampede of the cut-and-run Republicans, and exposed the hypocrisy of liberal and secular celebrants of the ’60s “sexual revolution,” who have suddenly gotten religion where Trump is involved. Trump exposed the fraudulence of the Clintons’ clucking concern for sexually abused women, brought Pence back into camp, turned the tables and changed the subject from the Trump tapes to the Trump triumph at Washington University.

The Tenth Life of Donald Trump

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

No one has ever spoken so bluntly to Hillary Clinton in her 30 years in politics. The confrontation was long overdue. In an either/or race, Trump at least reminded the audience that he is running as a refutation of the status quo. Hillary still bores with the idea that Obama’s record is fine and her continuance of it will make things even better.

Paul Ryan Runs Against Trump

Laura Ingraham, Lifezette

The GOP voters, when given a chance, overwhelmingly rejected Team Globalization and all its pundits. And those voters are going to remember that Team Globalization (and its pundits) did everything possible to throw this election to Hillary.

Trump's Comments: The Latest Left-Wing Hysteria

Dennis Prager, Townhall

In addition to not taking all private comments seriously, Republicans, conservatives and independents need to ask themselves if what Trump said -- not did, but said -- in a private conversation is any way comparable to the truly awful things Hillary Clinton and her husband have done both to women and to the country.

Trump: 'I may be limping across that finish line’

Mark Hensch, The Hill

Donald Trump on Monday said his presidential campaign would reach Election Day victory, regardless of the damage it takes. “I may be limping across that finish line, but we’re going to get across that finish line,” he told listeners during a campaign rally in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., one day after the second presidential debate.

Neal Freeman: Avarice and Mendacity Have Been the Hallmarks of Hillary Clinton’s Career

The hallmarks of Mrs. Clinton’s long career in public life have been avarice and mendacity. At every stop, she has sought to monetize her public service and then lie about what she did. She should be the last woman President, not the first.

The Moral Depravity of the Anti-Trump Power Grab

Did this lewdest, crudest and most putrid behavior (not talk), ever drive the press and Democratic party elders to call on President Bill Clinton to resign? Never.

Trump, Hillary, and Dishonest Abe

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Trump’s decision to go on offense served him well. Hillary, perhaps fearing that an extended attack on Trump’s lack of fitness owing to his taped remarks could backfire on her and lead to more discussion of her husband, didn’t revisit the issue after the opening moments of the debate. She tried to broaden her attacks but not very effectively. Many of her lines landed with a thud.
