Donald Trump

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.

Of Course Trump Paid Taxes

Mark J. Fitzgibbons, American Thinker

Just with his real estate holdings Trump may have paid more in real estate taxes than what the Clintons have paid in all taxes combined. Add to that the government fees for building permits and such. Trump also pays FICA taxes on the salaries of tens of thousands of employees. He pays an unemployment insurance tax, which is needed under the Obama-Clinton job-killing policies. The jobs created by Trump result in more people paying taxes. Hillary berates this as trickle-down economics. Tell that to the people who got the jobs. They are far better off than the record number of people receiving food stamps under Obama.

How Poll Bias Obscures Trump’s Likely Election

Milton Rosenberg, The American Spectator

It follows that the slight Clinton majorities coming from the “closely contested” and electorally crucial states such as Pennsylvania, Florida, and North Carolina may be illusory. If there is a small silent majority for Trump out there it will show from the privacy of the voting booth rather than in the polls.

Why I Am Having Nightmares About the Coming Election

David Franke, The American Conservative

I know I cannot vote for Clinton, but do I take a chance with Trump? Yes, he is disgusting personally, but at least he offers some chance of preserving some semblance of constitutional governance—we would still have free speech and the Second Amendment in relatively good shape. Yes, increasing civil strife is inevitably on the horizon, as the militarism budget and entitlements increasingly crowd out the welfare goodies now expected by much of the population. But, at least, there is some hope that “our side” could prevail in some tattered form.

Joseph Farah: Only Trump Can Save Us From Hillary

Donald Trump truly represents our only hope in stopping Hillary. He is the only person standing between her and the White House. It’s time for all clear-thinking, patriotic, liberty-loving Americans – Republican, independent or Democrat – to rally around him before it’s too late.

Deroy Murdock: Fake Anti-Semitism Flap Finds Trump Foes in New Low

How low will Donald J. Trump’s foes go to tear him down? Why not concoct a fake anti-Semitism flap? The Washington Post's baseless hatchet job libeling Donald Trump, Steve Bannon and Matthew Tyrmand as anti-Semites proves to be manipulative and truly vile.

Viguerie: Pence evokes memories of Reagan

Greg Corombos,

“Among other losers [on Tuesday] night were people named Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and Paul Ryan,” Viguerie said. “If the ticket were to lose in 2016, and I don’t think they will, I think Mike Pence is going to be the favorite going forward. Win or lose, we’ll see Mike Pence accept the mantle as being the leader of the conservative movement.”

Donald Trump’s secret weapon for Debate No. 2

Monica Crowley, Washington Times

Many are now demanding that he truly go on the attack. Since it’s in the political bloodstream that he did not hit her proactively the last time, he now has a free hand to up the ante without being stigmatized as an unsuitable hothead. If Mrs. Clinton thinks the final two debates are going to resemble the first one, she may face a very unpleasant surprise.

Is Trump Admiral Bull Halsey or Captain Queeg?

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

If Trump fights Hillary with a coherent plan that is the antithesis of the last eight years, rather than harping about his business reputation and obsessing with the trivial, he still might win a conservative Congress, a cadre of loyal conservative cabinet officers, a rare chance to remake the Supreme Court in a fashion not seen since the 1930s — and at 70 years of age make all his prior celebrity achievements of the past seem as nothing in comparison.

Trump Boasts Of ‘Single Most Decisive Victory In The History Of Vice Presidential Debates’

Alex Pappas, Daily Caller

Trump's comments, during a campaign rally in Henderson, Nevada, comes after speculation that Trump may be actually frustrated with Pence’s performance on Tuesday night, despite the positive reviews.

Dr. Jerry Falwell, Jr.: Americans Must Unite Behind Trump And Pence Or Suffer Dire Consequences

It is naive or deceptive for conservatives to claim that a write-in vote or a third-party vote will not benefit Clinton. A vote for Donald Trump and Mike Pence is a vote for more freedom and less government, a vote for national security and responsible immigration policy, a vote to finally fight radical Islamic terrorism. It is a vote to rebuild America’s respect overseas and a vote for strict-constructionist and pro-life Supreme Court justices.

Trump and Taxes

Property taxes are public records that could be reported on if one desired. It should be obvious (even without his personal returns) that Trump is the original source of much pubic revenue.  Each Trump property pays significant property taxes.  I would venture that the Trump Tower in New York probably pays more in property taxes than is paid in all types of taxes by most individuals or corporations.

NRA out with biggest ad buy yet to boost Trump

Sarah Wheaton, Politico

Starting Wednesday, the NRA is spending $6.5 million on a spot featuring a 26-year-old lawyer named Kristi McMains, who said the pistol in her purse saved her life when a man attacked her in a parking garage.

Pence writes the playbook for Trump

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

Mike Pence gave Donald Trump an instruction manual on how to deliver substantive responses on public policy issues — and how to avoid diversions into topics, particularly ad hominem attacks, that hurt rather than help your cause.

This November, Abortion Is On The Ballot

Marjorie Dannenfelser, Daily Caller

The Trump/Pence ticket is one of the most pro-life in history. They have committed to preserving the Hyde Amendment, appointing pro-life judges to the Supreme Court, signing the 20-week Pain Capable legislation into law to end gruesome, late-term abortion, and to defunding the nation’s largest abortion chain, Planned Parenthood.

Is It Too Late To Replace Donald Trump With Mike Pence?

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Last night Mike Pence laid claim to be the clear and obvious heir to Ronald Reagan with nobody in second place.

Pence Debate Performance Confirms Him As De Facto Leader Of The Conservative Movement

Mike Pence had one job going into last night’s debate and that was to defend his running mate and his positions, but in doing that job effectively he accomplished another much more important job; he confirmed his position as de facto leader of the conservative movement.
