Conservatives: We Need To Fight And Win The Election We Have

Some of our conservative friends can’t seem to stop wishing for the election they want, instead of concentrating on winning the election they have. However, despite this lack of ability to focus on winning, the tools to win are actually there, in a way they haven’t been available to Republicans in the past several presidential election cycles.

Clinton Email Scandal: It's Far From Over

Charles Lipson, Real Clear Politics

The FBI’s refusal to recommend an indictment is obviously a huge win for Clinton. But her reluctance to take a victory lap is instructive. She knows she will continue to face withering attacks—attacks she cannot wave off as ridiculous conspiracy theories. After all, FBI Director James Comey publicly shredded all the defenses Hillary used for the past year.

The Trumpen Proletariat is larger than we thought

Daniel Henninger, Wall Street Journal

This election must be about something else. It is a reckoning, a final settling of accounts and grievances going way back. This isn’t about Republicans versus Democrats. It’s the gunfight at the OK Corral, between the Earps and the Clantons. It’s a street fight about what have become irreconcilable views of America.

Eric Trump: Ivanka would make a great VP

Nick Gass, Politico

Eric Trump says he agrees with Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) that his sister Ivanka would be a great pick for his father's for vice president. "His best running mate, by the way, would be Ivanka. I know that wouldn't pass muster, probably. But I don't know that I've met a more composed, brilliant, beautiful-in-every-way person," said Corker.

The Summer Revolution Part 2: Democrats to Spend $800,000 to Disrupt GOP Convention

It wouldn’t matter whether Donald Trump or Jeb Bush was leading the Republican field – a summer of radical Leftist violence is coming, and it was planning, building and organizing long before Donald Trump became the presumptive Republican candidate for President. And in their plans to disrupt the GOP Convention Democrats will be working hand-in-glove with their allies on the far-Left, many funded by Leftist billionaire George Soros.

Conservative opposition forces Corker out of Trump Veepstakes

As soon as conservatives such as Richard Viguerie started speaking out against Tennessee Senator Bob Corker’s potential candidacy, the establishment ran in the other direction. Corker’s exit is great news for Trump and improves his prospects of uniting and exciting conservatives going into the Republican National Convention.

Trump's Three Opponents

George Neumayr, American Spectator

Hillary, the weakest Democratic candidate since John Kerry, enjoys protection not only from her party’s establishment and its appointees but also from reporters and Republicans who are rooting for her to win. Trump has three opponents in effect: the Democratic-media annex and his own party’s establishment, which even at this late date is flirting with dump-Trump delegate schemes at the upcoming convention.

Trump Victory in Pennsylvania Hinges on 10 Counties, Experts Say

Salena Zito, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

Republicans may not be committing political hyperbole this year when they say their presidential candidate can win Pennsylvania, experts say. And it all comes down to tweaking the margins in existing red counties rather than flipping traditionally blue counties.

Choosing Bob Corker as VP Would Crash Trump’s Campaign

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

If there’s one thing worse than ignoring the conservative agenda, it is claiming to support it and then betraying it, and in that regard Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee stands alone in infamy among those suggested as a potential running mate for Donald Trump. I urge all of my conservative friends to let Donald Trump know that we conservatives believe choosing Bob Corker as his running mate would crash Trump’s campaign and that it is time to just say NO to Bob Corker for Vice President.

Trump’s Sheriff Star: The Latest Drive-By Media Fabrication

Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator

The long and short here? Yet again this is another drive-by media creation — a “look, there’s a squirrel!!!!” moment as America digests the serious reality that Hillary Clinton has become the first presidential nominee-presumptive in American history to be subjected to an FBI criminal investigation. The only difference this time is that the “squirrel” is anti-Semitism. And there’s nothing funny about that.

Trump: Hillary pumping up star controversy as a diversion

Rudy Takala, Washington Examiner

"These false attacks by Hillary Clinton trying to link the Star of David with a basic star, often used by sheriffs who deal with criminals and criminal behavior, showing an inscription that says 'Crooked Hillary is the most corrupt candidate ever' with anti-Semitism is ridiculous," Trump said.

This Is Trump Foreign Policy, A Conversation With Top Trump Adviser Dr. Walid Phares

JP Carroll, Daily Caller

He believes as I said that there needs to be a concerted, strategic effort to remove ISIS while also worrying about who and what could come next once they have been destroyed. It’s not just ISIS, there is still al-Qaida as well as more covert actors like the Muslim Brotherhood that President Obama legitimized in Egypt before the Egyptians took their country back.

Ryan And McCarthy Playing Small Ball Against Islam’s Civilization Jihad

The Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044 we urge CHQ readers to call Speaker Ryan, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Homeland Security Chairman Mike McCaul to tell them it is time to confront the subversive pre-violent elements of civilization jihad, such as influence operations, lawfare, infiltration, migration, material support for terrorism, etc. Tell them that there is no acceptable substitute for Victory Over Jihad and that their bill falls far short of putting in place the tools necessary to defeat the clear and present danger civilization jihad presents to constitutional liberty and Western civilization.

Why Trump is Routing the Free Traders

Patrick J. Buchanan, BernardGoldberg.com

In denouncing NAFTA, the WTO, MFN for China and the Trans-Pacific Partnership, all backed by Bush I and II, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, Trump is all but calling his own party leaders dunderheads and losers. And he seems to be winning the argument.

Trump's GOP Friends Stand Outside Party Circle

Caitlin Huey-Burns, Real Clear Politics

They are a mix of current and former office holders, including former presidential primary rivals. Few of them carry much clout in Republican circles these days, but some have been effective advisers on politics and policy for the presumptive nominee. Some campaign for him in person or on television, while others are working to court their respective networks on his behalf.

Limbaugh: Left will provoke 'levels of violence that we have not seen' if Trump wins

Louis Nelson, Politico

Pointing to violent protests in Baltimore and Ferguson, Missouri, as examples, Limbaugh said a Trump victory would precipitate mass outrage from Democrats around the country. He predicted a wave of recount demands, regardless of how close the election actually is, as well as lawsuits from Democrats attempting to upend a Trump presidency.
