A recent focus group conducted by pollster Frank Luntz should serve as a warning and an opportunity for Trump. Plus, #NeverTrumpers’ biggest mistake was not leaving room for them to change their minds on Trump; Republicans hope Trump supporters dominate early voting, and, Are there really “undercover” Trump voters out there?

The U.S. is expected to protect virtually every prosperous, populous, industrialized nation. But that’s just a start. Washington also must coddle, pamper, praise, uplift, pacify, encourage, and otherwise placate the same countries because they now believe it to be America’s duty to handle their defense. Alas, U.S. leaders have been only too willing to enable this counterproductive behavior. Except for Donald Trump.

Amid all the speculation about Hillary Clinton having Parkinson’s Disease, a subdural hematoma or other neurological condition there’s another explanation for Hillary Clinton’s health issues; guilt. The kind of guilt that we see affecting Hillary Clinton’s health is not the legal kind – mens rea – rather it is the soul-searing guilt that psychiatrists have found actually makes one physically ill.

Members of the Catholic community, especially the business owners, pro-life church members and lay religious leaders, would be shocked to learn that the intellectual godfathers of the social justice movement their Bishops, especially San Diego Bishop Robert McElroy and Chicago Archbishop Blase Cupich, are promoting advocate violence to achieve social justice and are intent on making devout Catholics into shills for a radical Leftist revolution brewed by the money of a Nazi collaborator.

Is Donald Trump really a bad manager or is he just an evolving novice politician? Plus, Establishment Republicans are still bitter sore losers, here’s why; Critics try to spin Olympics as countering Trump’s “we’re not winning” theme, and, This year, Republicans should learn from Jimmy Carter.

    Now it appears Trump has done some negotiating with himself. If he is changing his mind, he needs to be crystal clear, with great detail, about the what he would do as president on the issue that turned him into a contender in the first place.

  • Patrick J. Walsh, Daily Caller

    Trump, who called himself in his nomination speech a “Redneck from Fifth Ave,” understands the silent majority’s concerns. He is pushing back against an elite media who want a world of no borders, no allegiance and no identity.

    Corporations need cheap illegal labor, importers need cheap goods from China and the military industrial complex needs to keep America’s wars rolling. Every one of these entities has armies of high-paid lobbyists to make sure that the establishment stays put no matter what the voters want. Hillary Clinton? Her entire campaign is built on celebrity, pay-for-play wealth and establishment politics against a backdrop of gender wars.

    Many of Clinton’s ads have been attacks against Trump for being rash, lacking in basic decency, or for engaging in outsourcing as a businessman only to oppose it as a candidate. When advertising from outside groups backing Clinton’s candidacy is factored in, the disparity in the TV “air war” is even more startling.

    What is striking about this is that no Democrat will ever say squat to Harry Reid about this vile slander of a woman who lost her son to monumental incompetence. There will be no talk of giving a grieving parent room to express their grief. This is for the simple reason that with the Democrats human decency extends only to the extent that they can club their opponents with it.

    The enemy knows that Obama’s leaving in 5 months, so it’s best to grab while the grabbing’s easy.   Bad times indeed.

  • Lisa Boothe, The Washington Examiner Opinion

    While many in the media have declared the presidential election all but over, damning accusations of pay to play at the Clinton Foundation and reports that the FBI found 15,000 work-related documents that Hillary Clinton failed to turn over represent the political land mines that still lie between her and the presidency.

    What’s interesting about the exchange for a media critic, insofar as it is interesting, is that Caputo seems to think he came off well. Here’s why Caputo’s distemperate performance doesn’t look as good as he seems to fervently believe.

    Until serious numbers of African-Americans are participating in both the Republican and Democratic parties, the condition of black communities will never improve. Democrats haven't come up with an original thought for those communities for decades. They haven't had to.

    Since the Republican convention, Trump has traveled to Pennsylvania, Florida and North Carolina, states that may or unquestionably will be in play come November. He has staged rallies in Ohio and Iowa, also key battleground states. But in the past week, his schedule has been focused on red states, and he canceled events in the battleground states of Colorado and Nevada.

    Unlike Sean Hannity, who openly discloses his bias, reporters at the New York Times pretend they don’t have one. They see “objectivity” and liberalism as one and the same and thus feel no need to cover the issues dispassionately. What discredited journalism was not the rise of conservative pundits but liberal propagandists who masquerade as reporters.
