2016 election

How And Why Trump Can Win Michigan

The combination of Ford’s announcement that it is moving small car production to Mexico, Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” gaffe, concerns over her health and trustworthiness, Trump’s aggressive campaigning in Michigan, and the intensity of opposition to the flooding of the state with refugees may mean that Trump has an opportunity to win the state in November.

The future of the Supreme Court

Sen. Orrin Hatch, Washington Times

Through his or her appointments, the next president will determine whether the federal judiciary respects its proper, limited role in our self-governing democracy, or whether we continue to slide ever further toward judicial tyranny. There is no more important issue in this election.

Clinton’s Republican turncoats expect something in return

Darren Samuelsohn, Politico

Access, appointments and influence over a Clinton administration’s policies is the just dessert that a growing slate of Republican policy wonks, Capitol Hill veterans and former GOP administration officials say they expect for endorsing and in some cases raising money for the Democratic presidential nominee. And they’re already getting it.

The Bumpy Ride of our Flight 93

Roger Kimball, PJ Media

I was wrong when I predicted that Donald Trump would not be the candidate. I hope I will be proved wrong about my prediction that, were he the candidate, he would not win. The trends are promising, I think, but it would be foolish to deny that there are madmen in the cockpit or that many of the passengers are scared, apathetic, deluded, or just plain cowardly. We need a real-life Decius Mus who is willing to say “Let’s roll” and make a concerted charge. It may be the last chance we have.

Why a Trump victory in November is a virtual certainty

Helmut Norpoth, The Hill

One model, with slight variations, has accurately predicted the winner of the popular vote in each of the last five presidential elections, ever since it was introduced in 1996. Dubbed the “Primary Model,” it puts much stock in using primary results to forecast the vote in the general election. It also takes advantage of a historical tendency of the electoral pendulum to swing back and forth between the two parties. Both factors favor Trump over Clinton in 2016.

Hillary Clinton's Real Illness Revealed

The Clintons and their Far Left allies are concealing her illness not for the sake of her privacy, but because the truth blocks their path to power.  And that craven lust for power, and their willingness to tell any lie to obtain it, is what should frighten Americans about Hillary Clinton and her allies and dissuade voters from letting her, and them, anywhere near the White House.

Dick Morris: Hillary Could be Replaced by Biden

Newsmax

She won't withdraw unless he has to. But anxious Democrats will be so worried if she fails to be able to campaign and her health escalates as an issue that they might bring unbearable pressure on her to step aside. Be careful what you wish for. Biden would be a lot harder to beat than Hillary.

Is the Tide Going Out on Hillary?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

To get her “message” out, Clinton has to punch it though a media filter. But many in this ferociously competitive and diverse media market today know that the way to the front page or top of the website is to find a new angle on the plethora of scandals, minor and major, surrounding Hillary and Bill. And with thousands of emails still out there, the contents of which are known to her adversaries, she will likely have IEDs going off beneath her campaign all the way to November.

GOP insiders: Maybe Trump can win

Steven Shepard, Politico

According to The POLITICO Caucus — a panel of activists, operatives and strategists in 11 battleground states, 10 of which President Barack Obama carried in 2012. While a majority of GOP insiders still say Clinton would carry their state if the election were held today, significantly more Republicans now say Trump would win than even just a few weeks ago.

The Clinton Strategy Behind Liberal Media Attacks On Matt Lauer

The liberal scalding of Matt Lauer by his fellow “journalists” is part of the Clinton’s final 60-day strategy of coordinated attacks on anyone (especially in the media) who questions Hillary Clinton on her vulnerabilities on the email scandal, the foundation scandal, her disastrous decisions on Libya, Benghazi, Iraq, etc.  and was a warning to the rest of the media community and especially to the moderators of the upcoming official Commission on Presidential Debates that impartiality will not be tolerated.

Hillary Clinton Rope-a-Dopes Matt Lauer

If “I don’t remember” was Hillary Clinton’s most common answer to the FBI during the notorious softball interview that led the agency to give her a pass on the criminal charges of which she is so obviously guilty, “that was a mistake” was the first and perhaps most common answer she gave moderator Matt Lauer during last night’s “Commander in Chief” forum.

Comey Tries To Justify Giving Hillary Clinton Get Out of Jail Free Card

It is apparent that some in FBI management blindly followed what they were told to do — exonerate Hillary Clinton. The decision was so damaging to morale that you know things are bad at the FBI when Director James Comey releases a memo to all employees justifying his decision not to file charges against Hillary Clinton, but that’s exactly what happened yesterday.

Donald Trump and Phyllis Schlafly's last battle

W. James Antle, III, Washington Examiner

Did Schlafly as a nonagenarian once again identify a sea change on the Right or did she get her last pick for president wrong? Her last book could reveal her to have been ahead of her time or out of touch with the conservative movement for which she labored for so many decades.

Mark Levin reverses: ‘I’m gonna vote for Donald Trump’

Joe Concha, The Hill

After once declaring he could never support Donald Trump as the Republican nominee, Mark Levin changed his mind with a big announcement on his radio program Tuesday. Levin's endorsement comes five months after unequivocally stating, "I am not voting for Donald Trump. Period.”

Conservative Crackup Redux

Daniel J. Flynn, The American Spectator

The conservative movement largely failed as kingmaker in 2016 because the king they genuflected before in 2000 and 2004 so besmirched their philosophy. Voters decided that winning required a clean break rather than another try at the rebranding attempted in 2008 and 2012. Whether this reorientation works, only November knows. All Republican voters know before Labor Day is that it can’t work worse than in 2012 or 2008.

SOROS: Trump to win in ‘landslide’ vote, but President Hillary a ‘done deal’

Nazi Collaborator and convicted currency manipulator George Soros predicts a landslide popular vote win for Donald Trump, but says Hillary will win the electoral vote. In today's article we connect the dots to show exactly why Soros is so confident in his prediction.

Trump: Maybe we can deport Clinton

Jonathan Swan, The Hill

Trump told the raucous Phoenix crowd that as president he'd be establishing a "special deportation task force" to "find the most dangerous illegals who have evaded justice." "Just like Hillary Clinton has evaded justice," Trump added, as the Phoenix crowd roared. "Maybe they will be able to deport her."

Polls tighten in presidential race

Jonathan Easley, The Hill

Donald Trump is gaining some ground on Hillary Clinton in the polls, leaving the Democrat with a smaller lead heading into the crucial month of September. Clinton’s lead has shrunk to 4.3 points in the RealClearPolitics average, and she’s fallen short of the 50 percent mark in the last six national polls. The Democratic presidential nominee has settled into the mid-40 percent range, presenting an opportunity for her Republican rival.

Hillary Clinton’s Presidency Has Already Failed

Steve Berman, The Resurgent

Hillary Clinton’s presidency will fail. She’s spent her whole life preparing for a world absent moral foundations, beholden only to the shifting, gaslighted truths of power. Everything Hillary does will be an anticlimax, as the left devours itself until nothing remains but thoughtless tribal allegiance. I don’t have to hope that Hillary fails. She already has.

Hillary Clinton and Establishment GOP Join Forces Against the Alt-Right

The reason why Brexit resonated and Trump resonated isn’t that people are racists or too stupid to understand the arguments. The reason they resonated is that people have been so screwed by the prevailing order in such deep and fundamental and enduring ways that they can't imagine that anything is worse than preservation of the status quo.
