Donald Trump

Yes, the System Is Rigged

Patrick J. Buchanan, BernardGoldberg.com

If 2016 taught us anything, it is that if the establishment’s hegemony is imperiled, it will come together in ferocious solidarity — for the preservation of their perks, privileges and power. All the elements of that establishment — corporate, cultural, political, media — are today issuing an ultimatum to Middle America: Trump is unacceptable.

The great silent majority may surprise Trump, Clinton and us all

Monica Crowley, Washington Times

The Republican Party is now the party of action, symbolized by its frenetic, unconventional nominee, and the Democratic Party is the passive one, embodied by its tired champion of the rejected status quo. In a change election, the choice could not be clearer.

Report: Reeling Trump camp calls for 'emergency' meeting with Republicans

Daniel Chaitin, Washington Examiner

Members of Donald Trump's campaign are planning to sit down with Republican officials in Florida on Friday in what one person called a "come to Jesus" meeting for the struggling GOP nominee who has found himself embroiled in a number of debilitating controversies in recent weeks.

It Actually Is Unfair That The Press Is Doing This To Donald Trump

Neil Stevens, RedState

The press used these attacks to weaken Rubio and Cruz for the benefit of Donald Trump, and that was very unfair. Now they're doing it to weaken Trump for Hillary Clinton, and it's still unfair. It's going to work, but it's unfair on their parts to do it.

Why “Working Guys” Get The Trump Economic Message

Trump’s economic message was largely overshadowed by his (accurate) comments that Obama and Hillary Clinton created ISIS, but with 94 million Americans out of the workforce it is by far his most powerful weapon in the battle for the White House.

Trump successfully baits media into hysteria. Again.

Thomas Lifson, American Thinker

People who despise him are going to write bad things about him anyway, so why not push them over the edge into revealing more than they intend about their own prejudices?

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.

Cannibalizing Their Own Candidate

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Hillary must be chuckling at the GOP’s cannibalization of its own candidate. The country club Republicans have proven more useful to her campaign than her legion of six-figure staffers. The campaign has centered on Trump’s words, not her deeds, with the GOP elite reinforcing the skewed coverage by overreacting to Trump’s gaffes and downplaying the dangers of her presidency.

Your country needs you — to debate

Editors, Washington Examiner

Trump desperately needs voters to reconsider him, and debates probably represent his last and best chance for that. They put him on precisely even ground with the clear front-runner, which in itself gives him a boost, and he will have the chance to defeat her in several hours of prime-time jousting. A decision not to debate would be an effective forfeit of the election.

Pence blasts media for focusing on Trump

Harper Neidig, The Hill

“It seems like every single day the national press latches on to some other issue about my running mate, just each and every day of the week,” Pence said at a rally in Pittsburgh, according to Politico. “But you know what they’re not talking about? Anything having to do with Hillary Clinton.”

Trump in Detroit: I want to keep jobs and wealth in America.

Donald Trump’s message is the same kind of reassurance Reagan delivered to entrepreneurs and business builders who look at today’s Clinton-led war on success and job creation and see one of the more depressing chapters of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged playing out in real time.

Trump Is Right: Elections Can Be Rigged

Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator

To think that President Obama — a son of Chicago whose entire political career was based on a Chicago Democratic Party where voter fraud, aka rigging elections, was described by an FBI agent as “an accepted way of life in Chicago” — thinks Trump’s warning is “ridiculous” is not only ridiculous but laughably disingenuous.

The Isolationist Smear

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

It was not “isolationists” who failed America. None came near to power. The guilty parties are the CFR crowd and their neocon collaborators, and liberal interventionists who set off to play empire after the Cold War and create a New World Order with themselves as Masters of the Universe.

Every policy that has failed Forgotten America is a policy supported by Hillary Clinton

In his remarks to the Economic Club of Detroit Donald Trump has it exactly right – the current economic disaster visited on America’s working families isn’t some natural disaster, it’s a political and politician-made disaster, and Hillary Clinton supported every bit of it.

Trump fundraising sets off Clinton camp alarms

Gabriel Debenedetti, Politico

The real estate developer was always expected to build up his fundraising capacity at some point in the campaign, but even veteran campaign financiers have expressed surprise at his strength online, a phenomenon that’s reminiscent — if hardly equal — to the Bernie Sanders cash machine that bedeviled the Clinton camp during the primary.

Gingrich: Trump has 'gotten the messages'

Rebecca Savransky, The Hill

Former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) on Sunday said Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is turning his campaign around ahead of the general election. Gingrich, who was critical last week of some of Trump's comments, noted recent endorsements of Trump and said the nominee is now taking steps to get his campaign back on message.
