The Electoral College Debate

Walter E. Williams, CNS News

The Founders saw our nation as being composed of sovereign states that voluntarily sought to join a union under the condition that each state admitted would be coequal with every other state. The Electoral College method of choosing the president and vice president guarantees that each state, whether large or small in area or population, has some voice in selecting the nation's leaders. Were we to choose the president and vice president under a popular vote, the outcome of presidential races would always be decided by a few highly populated states.

We're All Indians Now

President Donald Trump seems to effortlessly induce Democrats to do dumb stuff that exposes their lies, hypocrisy and contempt for the intelligence of their fellow Americans. The President’s latest triumph in this regard is the revelation of the results of Senator Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren’s DNA test.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If wishes were fishes Democrats would have everyone eating sushi

Democrats wish for a lot of things, but their cure for the issue “ailments” would end up worse for America than the “disease.” Voters have a chance to stave off endless stupid investigations and Democrat chicanery by voting Republican on November 6. Will conservatives step up?

Liberal Americans Hate America First Because They Hate Normal Americans

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

America First is really about putting Americans first, and when is the last time we saw a Democrat do that? Between foreigners and Americans on trade, they side with the foreigners. Between illegal immigrants and American citizens, they side with the illegals. Between anyone else and us, they always side with anyone else. This November, the people of Arizona, and across the country, need to decide whether they want to turn our government over to people who hate us.

Liberals Discover the Dangers of a Powerful Supreme Court

Doug Bandow, The American Spectator

We can only hope that Brett Kavanaugh’s arrival on the Supreme Court will result in the horrors of which the left warns: government as we know it will disappear, people will be free to live their lives as they wish, and impending progressive political triumphs will be thwarted. Unfortunately, the result is likely to be far more equivocal. Nevertheless, for now schadenfreude offers cause for satisfaction: after spending decades promoting government by judiciary, the left has discovered the wonders of democracy. Maybe eventually they will come to appreciate the value of liberty.

Save the Democrats: Crush Them at the Polls

Deroy Murdock, National Review

Atop Trump’s 2016 defeat of Hillary, a second, even harsher drubbing in 2018, might be the knockout blow that makes Democrats reverse their unicorn ride into hell and, instead, reinspire America with a program for growth and prosperity. Only then might Democrats stop their madness. It now is the solemn duty of every voter, volunteer, activist, advocate, donor, operative, and candidate on the center-right to assure that the Democrats experience this desperately needed, self-cleansing, paradigm-shifting wipeout.

Leftists could cause racial shift among Democrats

Star Parker, Boston Herald

More blacks are beginning to understand that what serves their interests is a nation of law, a nation of moral integrity, a nation in which government protects individuals rather persecuting them based on prejudicial thinking. A booming economy and unemployment claims at historic lows are the result of a nation of law, not a nation of politics. The Supreme Court is on a new track, with a solid conservative majority in place. This is good news for all Americans.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Dems’ beautiful blue wave more like stagnant algae-filled millpond

Democrats seriously blundered by forecasting an ominous “blue wave” would clean Republicans out of Congress simply because of Donald Trump’s personality. Americans aren’t gullible – don’t be surprised if the Democrats’ “wave” turned out to be more akin to a stagnant algae-filled millpond on a windless day.

Who Will Save Democrats from Their Leaders?

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

Most conservatives see government as a necessary evil; they would like a limited United States government that reflects this suspicion and the Framers’ emphasis on liberty. Most Democrats see government as a desirable good; they would like an active United States government that rights wrongs and addresses the complex challenges of modern, globally interconnected society. Many brilliant, able people have been that kind of Democrat — the kind of patriot who loves America as it is but strives to improve it, not radically alter it. The country needs those Democrats to take their party back.

A Republican red tide is pushing back against the Dems’ blue wave

Salena Zito, New York Post

If people like Westbrook and Vogel coalesce around the GOP, the Democrats could be in trouble. And if the Democrats keep supporting people who claw at the doors of the Supreme Court in protest, or harass Republicans and their families at dinners, or talk nonstop about impeachment or echo Hillary Clinton’s sentiment that: “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for,” then they may do what I thought unlikely: stop their own blue wave mid-flow.

My Latest Memo On The 2018 Election

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Democrats, including many of the Party’s national leaders, have now handed the GOP the opportunity to nationalize the election on the mob violence, incivility, radical Leftism and downright craziness that was on national TV during and after the Kavanaugh confirmation.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: When everything’s a political hill to die on, no one reaches the top

Questions on how to conduct effective campaigns or how to confirm the next Supreme Court justice are difficult and opinions diverge widely. The “old” American political system might produce a workable solution, but in today’s environment, everything’s a political hill to die on.

Liberalism: An Intrinsically Uncivil Ideology

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Under liberalism, the central question of politics invariably shifts from goodness to power, thus rendering civil discourse an impossibility. Out of such a raw, grabby culture come low demagogues like Holder and Hillary, for whom the ends justify any means. Long before Kanye West entered the Oval Office, civility vanished from it, often at the hands of preening liberals like Clinton and Obama who extolled it the most.

Remember That Our Opponents Are Insane Crazy People

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Good sportsmanship applies to sports. It doesn’t apply to street fights. This was a lynching of a good man for cheap political advantage and it must be punished if we are going to have less of them in the future. If we can increase their agony at losing, then we are hastening the day when they learn that they don’t get to win. Not ever. They will grow tired of all the losing. We, on the other hand, shall never tire of all the winning.

The Democrats go mean

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

We should take Hillary Clinton and Eric Holder very seriously. This is indeed the “New Democratic Party” as Mr. Holder put it. Rep. Maxine Waters was simply the first one to announce it when she encouraged Democrats to “confront” the president’s supporters. Now Cory Booker, Eric Holder and Hillary Clinton, among others, have endorsed the politics of harassment and chaos. Americans want solutions, ideas and progress, not threats.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Are normal people now trapped in the Democrats’ uncivil America?

Hillary Clinton’s advocacy for “incivility” in dealing with Trump and Republicans isn’t likely to cause much of a stir on its own. No one listens to the decrepit former presidential candidate, but Clinton’s attitude is all too pervasive in the greater Democrat party. Be afraid…be very afraid.

Dems' Socialist Ideas Will Tank Economy

Betsy McCaughey, Real Clear Politics

Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, New York congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and dozens of other federal and state candidates demand radical changes like giving workers control of 40 percent of corporate board seats and making boards serve vague goals of social justice instead of maximizing profits. They're also pushing for huge minimum wage hikes. These changes will tank the economy and hurt the very workers the party claims to represent. The Democrats' extreme proposals are handing Republicans a powerful election counterattack.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats about to discover conservatives’ angst that lies beneath

It’s only a matter of time before we find out if there’s another Andrew Breitbart out there or how many Democrats will be defeated in a few weeks due to the party’s outlandish treatment of now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh. What comes around goes around, a principle Democrats have yet to absorb.

Is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a Republican in disguise?

Roger Kimball, The Spectator

The chicly accoutered socialist Alexandria just scored some major points for Republicans with her astonishingly ignorant attack on the Electoral College and the idea that each state is accorded two senators, regardless of its population. Of course, she is not alone. Hillary Clinton, the erstwhile politician, likes the idea of scrapping the Electoral College. The voters understand what the Democrats are trying to do. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pretends not to, which is why she just might be a secrete weapon deployed by the GOP.

Singing only sad songs is no fun

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Democrats and the liberals were winning for so long that it never occurred to any of them that the good old days wouldn’t last forever. But the good old days didn’t, and now they’re as ill-tempered as the alligator the day the creek went dry. Democrats have won many elections under the rules obtaining, and they will one day elect presidents again who nominate men and women to the Supreme Court. The fault, the Bard said, is not in the stars, but in ourselves. That can be a painful lesson, but not learning it will be most painful of all.
