By using the new and alternative media as a key means of communication with core supporters, neither Trump nor Reagan ceded the ability to set the terms of the campaign to the self-appointed gatekeepers of the establishment media. This was a key element, perhaps the key element, that distinguished their winning campaigns from the also-rans in the primary.

When our friend businessman, author, TV and Radio commentator, and 2008 Libertarian Party Vice Presidential Nominee Wayne Allyn Root reminded us that many observers consider Donald Trump's speech at last year's FreedomFest 2015 to have been the moment when his campaign for President became credible we took that to mean Trump was returning to FreedomFest 2016. We were wrong, there is no confirmation Trump will be be back to this year's FreedomFest. Here's Wayne's letter in its entirety with our apology.

University of San Diego School of Law professor Gail Heriot thinks Obama’s “guidance” to states demanding they open school locker rooms, showers and toilets to students of both sexes is an example of the executive branch overreaching what the legislative branch intended. Far-Left Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren (CA-19) thinks disagreeing with Obama makes Commissioner Heriot an “ignorant bigot.”

This weekend’s Libertarian Party convention should be interesting to watch, but don’t expect #NeverTrump (or Bernie Sanders backers) to be enthused with the outcome. Plus, Leftist protests carrying Trump’s message for him; Are young people driving the Trump poll surge?, and, Rubio to Trump: Sure, I’ll speak at the convention if you want me to.

“Is there any conservative principle or constituency in the conservative coalition that elected Ronald Reagan and won the historic elections of 2010 and 2014 that Capitol Hill’s Republican leaders haven’t betrayed?” Clearly after last night's vote to codify Obama's #ToiletTerrorism the answer is NO, and without new leadership in the House and Senate Republican Conferences the betrayals will continue.  Please sign our petition. Tell Speaker Paul Ryan: Stop Obama's Liberal Transformation of America or Go Home!

The competing interests within the Trump campaign are little more than a distraction for the media. Plus, Trump moves into the realm of professional ground game operations; #NeverTrumper non-believers still pining for Mitt Romney, and, Crooked Hillary’s email scandal about to blow up – once again.

Like President Obama, Speaker Paul Ryan has made increasing Muslim immigration to America his special project and has steadfastly fought any attempts by conservatives to slow or stop what a large majority of American believe is an existential threat to constitutional liberty.

Conservative blogger Erick Erickson may have provided a clue on how to get #NeverTrumpers to support The Donald. Plus, Republicans are warming to Donald Trump because he’s the voters’ outsider of choice; If Trump names Cabinet members ahead of the election, he might be breaking the law, and, Rubio rues his handling of “Marco Roboto” moment in New Hampshire.

Two conservative thinkers for whom we have a great deal of respect, Bill Kristol and Erick Erickson, have finally jumped the shark and entered a bizarre new #NeverTrump political dimension where Mitt Romney is a viable candidate for president and forming a third party five months before the election is a realistic means of electing an alternative to Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

The Trump bump is real. Whether Hillary gets one depends on Bernie Sanders. Plus, Has #NeverTrump become #AnyonebutTrump?; Whispers about Newt Gingrich for Trump’s VP are becoming roars, and, Trump to remain on American soil until the election.

Why, after the Blind Sheikh's bombing of the World Trade Center, 9/11, the rise of ISIS, and a multitude of Muslim terrorist attacks, including the downing of Russia’s MetroJet Flight 9268 with a bomb planted by an insider, and now EgyptAir Flight 804, do we allow Sharia-compliant Muslims to access soft targets like airliners?

Subsidizing prosperous, populous allies and attempting to remake failed states provides little benefit to most Americans, who do the dying and paying. Hillary Clinton’s foreign support actually reinforces Donald Trump’s point: the need for an international policy that advances the interests of the American people.

    Though the CDC claims that all U.S. bound refugees are screened for active tuberculosis, those medical screenings failed to prevent four refugees with active TB from arriving in Indiana in 2015.

    Petulant Romneyites unfurling the banner of War & Wall Street as they break from a Trump-led party would be in neither the romantic Old Right Buchanan nor the principled ideologue La Follette-Andrews-Hospers tradition.

    White males, now down to 31 percent of the population, have become the only Americans against whom it is not only permissible, but commendable, to discriminate. When our cultural and political elites celebrate “diversity” and clamor for more, what are they demanding, if not fewer white males in the workforce and in the freshman classes at Annapolis and Harvard?

    If Trump wins the general election in November, he should send fruit baskets to the organizers of the latest unrest. They are generating sympathy for him by ensuring that a noisy proportion of his supporters are identified as asses who need to be defeated.

    With all the progress in our country in favor of the Left, you’d think there would be a lot of happiness within the SJW crowd. But it appears that left-wing extremists have only gotten angrier with every advancing step.

    Americans for Prosperity has dozens of field workers descending on the lawmaker’s district in the Raleigh suburbs, all of whom are working to brand the three-time incumbent as a fake conservative who has too often voted for legislation reaffirming Washington’s crony capitalism. This is the first time the Koch network has ever opposed a sitting Republican lawmaker facing a primary fight.

    I get that Rubio doesn’t want to spend the last few months of his public life involved in a jihad against Trump, but the things Rubio said – repeatedly – were totally incompatible with the idea of actively supporting Trump in the general.

    The Clintons sold us out–sold America out–to enrich themselves. There’s no doubt of that.

    As if the IRS isn’t facing enough scrutiny, a dream team of conservative leaders is calling for congressional hearings into whether the IRS and the Obama administration allowed two state attorneys general to target non-profit organizations by requiring disclosure of their donor lists in return for permission to solicit donations in their respective states.

    A pipeline now channels left-wing academic theorizing into the highest reaches of government and the media. The products of the narcissistic academy graduate and bring their High Theory indoctrination with them into the federal and state bureaucracies and into newsrooms. Even the judiciary is affected. The opinion of the federal district court striking down California’s Proposition 8 (declaring that marriage was an institution uniting men and women), for example, was steeped in the women’s-studies notion that marriage originated as a way to impose a subordinate “gender” role on females.

  • Stella Morabito, Public Discourse

    As usual, tyranny comes disguised as “civil rights.” The latest exhibit of this general rule is President Obama’s directive that seeks to force a transgender bathroom, locker room and dorm policy on the entire nation, starting with schoolchildren. Many of us are taken aback by this news, but we really shouldn’t be. The order is merely the latest incarnation of a long line of social engineering. The goal, as is always the case with such movements, is to remake humanity. 

  • Rod Dreher, The American Conservative

    The Left, instead of doing the good it ought to accomplish by critiquing the baser aspects of corporate greed (the original purpose of the OWS movement) has been neutered and transformed into a frenzied mob arguing over semiotic power and tribal purity. And all these new administrative positions required to monitor the fulfillment of student demands provide the university with one more excuse to fleece students (and their parents, and their future spouses/children) by hiring utterly superfluous staff members into lifelong sinecures.

  • Steve Berman, The Resurgent

    President Obama’s transgender bathroom access isn’t about transgenders, and it isn’t about bathrooms. It’s about Federal power over every aspect of our lives, by decree and by use of force to compel us to live as one man in Washington pleases. Obama is about to segregate schools, separating the well-funded, transgender-friendly ones from the funding-starved ones that refuse to comply with his bathroom grab.

  • Rich Lowry, Politico Magazine

    Hillary’s defenders say this is tantamount to blaming her for Bill’s infidelities. Of course, she’s not responsible for his wanderings. But as a fully vested member of Bill’s political operation, Hillary had as much interest in forcefully rebutting all allegations of sexual misconduct as he did.

    Unlike immigration, free trade or national security, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee has said little during interviews and campaign rallies about the energy and environmental policies a Trump administration would uphold or oppose.
