Trump’s ‘revolution’ should be embraced by both parties

Adam Brodsky, The New York Post

Trump’s impulse to roll back taxes to jump-start the economy is hopeful news. Indeed, it’s something both Democrats and Republicans can support — or should, anyway.

How Donald Trump Can Become One of Our Greatest Presidents

Lew Uhler, Peter Ferrara, The American Spectator

Donald Trump can go down as one of the greatest Presidents in American history, if he can accomplish just a few simple things that America urgently needs. Trump has already pledged to do precisely these things, while Hillary has pledged to do just the opposite.

Trump is right about violent crime: It’s on the rise in major cities.

Sean Kennedy and Parker Abt, The Washington Post

The FBI reports nationwide data for the first six months of the previous year every January. In January 2016, it reported crime figures for the first half of 2015. That data showed significant increases in violent crime categories. Homicide was up 6.2 percent across the country, while rape was up 9.6 percent.

Theodore Bunker, NewsMax

‘Republicans Need to Understand If Trump Loses, It Is a New America’

Jeff Poor, Breitbart

Daily Caller editor Tucker Carlson warns “This is a pivot point in American history,” Carlson said. “If Hillary is elected – everyone is focused on her deficits as a person. The truth is it’s her policies. She’s going to open the borders, pack the Supreme Court and you are not going to have the same country. Maybe you like that, maybe you don’t. But we’re not going back to the status quo, period. And so Republicans need to understand if Trump loses, it is a new America, OK? A lot is on the line, whether you like him or not. That is real.”

Trump’s Mocking Hillary’s ‘Missing’ Emails Proves Media Don’t Get It

Mark J. Fitzgibbons, The American Thinker

When Donald Trump said maybe Russia will “find” Hillary Clinton’s lost emails – you know, the ones that the Obama Justice Department claimed it could not find -- and then added, “I think [they] will probably be rewarded mightily by our press,” I laughed out loud.

Conservatives: What Then Must We Do In the Age of Trump?

Timothy Daughtry, Townhall

By 2020, the far left’s agenda will be four years further along, Clinton and her appointees will have opened our elections to millions of illegal aliens by executive, administrative, or judicial fiat. Even the most ideal conservative candidate will be swamped by millions of new left wing voters. America will effectively become a one-party country ruled by far-left Democrats.

Hillary Gets a Negative Bounce from the Democratic National Convention

The Clinton brand has taken some serious hits in the small details of the Democrats' Convention, many of which are in the non-verbal communications and politically correct silence emanating from the stage in Philadelphia, consequently, Hillary Clinton has actually gone down in the polls during what should have been a four day showcase of her candidacy.

Open Letter From Cultural Conservatives To Donald Trump

CHQ Chairman Richard A. Viguerie and a group of prominent cultural conservative leaders invite you to join them on an open letter to presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. The letter spells out the reasons why selecting an anti-conservative Republican vice presidential nominee, such a New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, retired Lt.

WHAT’S NEXT FOR AMNESTY?

Paul Mirengoff, Powerline

The Supreme Court’s 4-4 decision in the executive amnesty case means that the lower court’s ruling invalidating that amnesty is affirmed. Executive amnesty will not be granted while Obama is president. If Hillary Clinton is elected, matters will be very different; she would likely be able to bring the executive amnesty issue before a Supreme Court populated by five liberal judges.

Daniella Diaz, Jeff Simon, CNN

Miriam Cepeda is probably one of few -- a 24-year-old Latina and a self-proclaimed "Trump girl" on the South Texas border -- and she wants you to know it.
