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.

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.

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.

Cruz Nails Obama Willful Blindness To Muslim Terrorism And Its Goals

As our friend Frank Gaffney put it so memorably after Senator Ted Cruz's stellar questioning of DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson, “The U.S. government is, indeed, ‘willfully blind’ about sharia-supremacism and the danger it poses to America.  Sen. Ted Cruz has established that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson could qualify for a seeing-eye dog – and why… These are the narratives of the Muslim Brotherhood – and proof-positive of their successful, subversive influence operations inside the Obama administration.”

Presidential Horse Race 2016: When does opposing Donald Trump become a moral issue?

Q for #NeverTrump: Are you really willing to effectively extinguish the lives of millions of unborn Americans because your pride prevents you from backing a man like Donald Trump?

Another Reason To Back Trump: The US Chamber of Commerce Is Against Him

Donald Trump’s analysis that bad trade deals and currency manipulation are largely responsible for the destruction of our manufacturing base is certainly correct, but there’s another signature US Chamber of Commerce issue that didn’t get much play in Trump's Pennsylvania speech, and that is unlimited immigration, which has contributed as much, if not more, than NAFTA has to the destruction of America’s middle class.

Muslim Terrorism In America: See Something, Say Nothing

Our friend Philip B. Haney yesterday testified before Senator Ted Cruz’s Subcommittee on Oversight, Agency Action, Federal Rights and Federal Courts to explain just how deeply the Obama administration has been penetrated by the Muslim Brotherhood.

Why Brexit Signals a Trump Victory

Edward J. Rollins, Real Clear Politics

The people now saying Brexit has little relevance to U.S. politics are the same people who thought that the United Kingdom would never possibly leave the European Union in the first place. The fact of the matter is that what just happened in the Brexit is the same thing that’s happening here in America.
