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, BernardGoldberg.com

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.

Trump stays alive with decent debate performance

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

My sense is that Trump's performance was good enough to stall what has been this weekend a growing cascade of demands that he withdraw from the race. It doesn't seem likely that he eliminated what seemed to be the growing polling gap between him and Hillary Clinton. But he may have reversed the trend.

Trump Will Win the National Battle for Legitimacy

David P. Goldman, PJ Media

There has never been anything like this in the past century and a half of American history, and it is thankless to predict the outcome. Nonetheless I will: Trump will crush it. Clinton, the major media, the pollsters, and the mainstream Republican Party have badly misread the insurrectionist mood of the electorate.

If you think Donald Trump’s comments are vulgar, check out Hillary’s potty mouth

Mark J. Fitzgibbons, American Thinker

Fact checking Hillary's past proves she's no saint when it comes to language. Note: If you are offended by vulgar language, do not read this.

Trumped-Up Outrage

Heather Mac Donald, City Journal

Either women are the same as men or they’re not. It is particularly galling to see the selective resurrection of Victorian values from the same crowd that has been pushing transgender locker rooms on the world, in an effort to destroy the last shred of girls’ innate sexual modesty.

Gingrich: GOP bedwetters have 'egg on their face' after debate

Ben Kamisar, The Hill

"Tonight, they have a lot of egg on their face because the guy who showed up tonight is the Republican nominee, he clearly has earned the right to be the Republican nominee," Newt Gingrich said early Monday morning on Fox News shortly after the second presidential debate in St. Louis ended.

Here’s Who Won The Debate, According To The Internet

Kaitlan Collins, Daily Caller

Donald Trump won the second presidential debate — or at least that’s what you’d think if you were reading the Internet Sunday night. The pollster Frank Luntz tweeted that 16 members of his focus group determined Trump the winner, while six of them thought Clinton was.

Trump Pushed The Reset Button In Last Night's Debate

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Trump met and exceeded most people's expectations by a mile. For those voters who don't like America's direction they saw a person who was a credible alternative to Obama's 3rd term.

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.
