Though debates don’t usually alter a presidential race very much, Donald Trump could help himself a lot this year by appearing presidential. Plus, Non major-party candidates won’t be at the debate and deservedly so; Ted Cruz does the right thing, endorses Donald Trump, and, Trump ups the ante with huge TV ad buy before the election.

Yesterday, March for Life Action launched a major public awareness campaign highlighting the overwhelming pro-life consensus most Americans share on the issue of abortion. The first phase of the campaign will run Thursday through Monday, leading into the Presidential debate, and will include digital and television outreach. Targeting Columbus, OH; Dayton, OH; Pittsburgh, PA; Scranton, PA; Richmond, VA and the District of Columbia.

The last thing Ted Cruz should do on the Trump endorsement question is listen to the advice of the desperate #NeverTrumpers. Plus, Conway could be the key to breaking the Democrats’ lock on Millennials; Trump’s non-traditional views on TV advertising confounds the political class, and, Would smiling more help Crooked Hillary in Monday’s debate?

Neither party establishment is prepared to advance a strategy for victory, neither party establishment is prepared to successfully “wage peace.” Only Donald Trump was prepared to say that endless war is not just political folly, but an indecent sacrifice of American lives and treasure.

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
In my new online series and companion booklet on the 2016 election conservative leaders weigh in to explain the threat the election of Hillary Clinton would pose to constitutional liberty, traditional American values and the conservative worldview, and why they plan to vote for Donald Trump.

I’ve met lots of people who have opinions on Donald Trump, but no one ever wants to talk about Hillary. Plus, Speculation is rampant on the first presidential debate, but predicting the event is more difficult than ever this year; Are the #NeverTrumpers truly on life support or just wandering the world alone?, and, Poll analyst Nate Silver boosts Trump’s chances of winning dramatically.

    While the moderator focused on interrupting and fact-checking Trump, Hillary Clinton offered a litany of lies to the nation on Monday night during her first debate against Donald Trump.

  • Jonah Bennett, Daily Caller

    During the debate on policing, the right policy measures to implement in order to reduce crime and how to improve race relations in the country, Clinton said the entire country — not just the police — suffers from implicit racial bias. “Lester, I think implicit bias is a problem for everyone, not just police,” Clinton said.

  • Salena Zito, New York Post

    One patron said Clinton came across as either smug or as though she was reading her resume, adding there was nothing on her resume that reached his life, “I am a small businessman, a farmer, come from a long line of farmers and coal miners, the policies she talked about tonight ultimately either hurt me or ignore me,” he said.

  • W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

    Trump will never be able to fully defuse the ticking time bombs, even against "likeable enough" Hillary. What he can do is more consistently press the case that his ruthlessness can be made to work for the American people, not just for himself.

  • Stephen Moore, The American Spectator

    Using one year of data after seven and a half years of Obama policies is pretty misleading and distortionary. Things did get better in 2015. But guess what. So far this year the economy has grown at just one percent. It looks like that one year of good news will be a statistical blip. No wonder Americans by a two to one margin believe the economy is “on the wrong track.” And they are right.

  • Lisa Hagen, The Hill

    Democrat Evan Bayh’s last-minute attempt at a political comeback made this year’s Senate race in Indiana look all but over for Republicans hoping to hold on to the open seat. But with six weeks until the general election, polls are tightening and the contest is looking more like a toss-up as Senate control hangs in the balance.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, BernardGoldberg.com

    In a nation of 320 million, if every collision between white cops and black men resulting in the death of a suspect is to be seen as legitimate grounds for mob action like Charlotte, we will never know racial peace. Like moths to a flame, TV cameras are attracted to conflict, especially racial conflict. Networks and TV stations reward with airtime the most incendiary of racial charges. Thus, the news going out to homes and bars will continue to polarize us along racial lines.

  • William McGurn, Wall Street Journal

    In short, far from resolving Mrs. Clinton’s email case, the handling of the investigation has provoked questions about integrity of both the FBI and Justice. The big question for Mr. Comey remains this: You publicly said there was no case for criminal charges. So what did Cheryl Mills need immunity for?

  • David Catron, The American Spectator

    What’s making Hillary's supporters jumpy is that the moderator might actually be fair, and refuse to join Hillary in a tag-team takedown of Trump. They quite literally want Lester Holt to reprise the contemptible role Candy Crowley played in the second 2012 presidential debate.

  • Byron York, Washington Examiner

    For several days, Democrats and their supporters in the press have demanded that presidential debate moderator Lester Holt factcheck Donald Trump in Monday night's showdown at Hofstra University. Those demands turned to pleading Sunday when Hillary Clinton's campaign manager, Robby Mook, appearing on ABC's "This Week," asked for special treatment for Clinton in the event that Trump tells lies from the debate stage.

  • Rich Lowry, National Review

    Tonight's debate is an event tailor-made for Trump to change one of the main factors holding him back. By roughly 60 percent to 30 percent, people think Clinton is prepared to be president; by roughly 60 percent to 30 percent, people think Trump is not. A credible performance could move that number for Trump, and appreciably increase his odds of winning the presidency.

  • Rebecca Savransky, The Hill

    Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are in close races in two key battleground states, according to new CNN/ORC polls. In Pennsylvania, Clinton is favored by 45 percent of likely voters while Trump is backed by 44 percent, according to the poll. In Colorado, Trump is favored by 42 percent of likely voters in the new poll and Clinton is backed by 41 percent.

  • Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

    What would happen if police were to default from their duty to serve and protect — the position demagogues are increasingly pressuring cops into. Then, naturally, we would hear the alternative “narrative”: that American society had abandoned its most oppressed communities to a dystopia of crime, poverty, drug abuse, and hopelessness — and don’t you dare mention who is doing the oppressing.

  • Thomas C. Steward, Washington Times

    Jackson’s policies were controversial at the time, and are still vigorously debated by historians, but Jackson rocked the political establishment and made government more accountable to the people. Could we have a second Jacksonian Revolution? That depends on whether the American people trust Donald Trump to lead one.

  • Alex Swoyer, Breitbart

    Judicial Crisis Network’s Carrie Severino says conservatives should be “very pleased” with the expanded list. “Donald Trump continues to take unprecedented steps to demonstrate that he intends to appoint justices like Scalia, Thomas and Alito,” Severino says. “Conservatives should be very pleased by the steps he has taken, and if he lives up to his promises we will have a Court that truly puts the rule of law ahead of political preferences.”
