Hillary Clinton

A Much Needed History Lesson For Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Scott Walker

Republican primary voters tend toward primogeniture and they may make a cause out of a closely fought loss, as Nixon’s supporters did over his 1960 loss to John F. Kennedy and Reagan’s conservative supporters did in 1976 after he was denied the Republican nomination, but it appears that general election voters have a higher standard and they will never forgive or look at a sore loser as worthy of the highest office in the land.

Hillary and the NAACP Mob

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The media was too busy scrutinizing Melania Trump’s prose to parse the outrageous meaning of Hillary’s NAACP speech. And let’s see if MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, who got so worked up about the GOP inviting the mother of a Benghazi victim to its convention, will show anywhere near the same ire at Hillary’s “mothers” when they appear in Philadelphia to call cleared cops “murderers.”

Clinton’s Lead Is As Safe As Kerry’s Was In 2004

Nate Silver, FiveThirtyEight

While Obama won twice with pre-convention leads of 3 to 4 points, John Kerry went into his convention with a lead of about 3 percentage points in 2004, but lost to George W. Bush. And in 2000, Bush had about a 4-point lead on the eve of the conventions, but lost the popular vote to Al Gore. (Bush won the Electoral College, of course.)

The continuing political decline of Hillary Clinton

Aaron Blake, Washington Post

It's hard to overstate just how bad Clinton's numbers are. And a new Washington Post-ABC News poll is the latest to suggest they just keep getting worse — so much so that they are in some ways about as bad as Trump's.

The Melania And Rudy Show Built The Trump Brand

Trump’s goal, as we see it, was to build and reinforce his brand, as much through non-verbal as through verbal communications. By keeping establishment Republicans like Paul Ryan, that millions of Americans hate, off the stage, and by putting Mrs. Trump, the very embodiment of the Trump brand, plus a highly targeted group of political outsiders on the stage, Trump went far in accomplish that goal.

Presidential Horse Race 2016: Turmoil and red meat at the first day of the Republican Convention

The evening program of the first day of the Republican National Convention offered plenty of interest, but the “stars” of the show were not necessarily the ones you would expect. Plus, #NeverTrump wanted convention chaos and in getting it killed necessary reforms of the RNC that conservatives have been working on for years; Ted Cruz will back Trump because everyone will be better off when The Donald wins, and, Beyond Cleveland, Trump is just getting started.

Conservatives, I Urge You to Join Me: Unite Behind Trump and Pence

By: Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Friends, we've had our howl of frustration, but this is now a binary choice: Trump and Pence vs. Hillary Clinton. In this battle there is only the victory or defeat of constitutional liberty and the rule of law. In this battle there is no third option, there is no compromise, there is no sitting out the election. I’m all in for Trump and Pence and I urge you to join me and them in making America great again.

Can Trump Win Ohio?

Daniel Henninger, Wall Street Journal

From Cleveland on Lake Erie down to Cincinnati on the Kentucky border, Ohio’s voters historically have demanded hands-on attention before they pick the next president. For now, Donald Trump is campaigning for this must-win state with not much more than the Trump brand. There’s a first time for everything.

To Regain Conservative Trust Mike Pence Must Rediscover The Courage He Once Had

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Donald Trump could do a lot worse than Mike Pence as his running mate. However, if he expects that the selection of Pence will close the deal with conservatives he is sadly mistaken, because Pence has shown that he lacks one of Trump’s most admirable qualities; the willingness to fight for what he believes in.

FedUp PAC Poll: 99 Percent of Conservatives Say FBI Misfired On Hillary

Conservatives say that Hillary Clinton should be prosecuted for her crime of handling classified material with gross negligence, according to a poll by FedUp PAC. Prosecution was supported by 99%, with only 1% disagreeing.

Hillary's Cop-Bashing Past and Present

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Hillary doesn’t want to “reform” police departments but castrate them. Her cop-bashing these days is more circumspect and subdued than it was in the 1970s, but it is no less ideologically crass. She is no longer romanticizing the Black Panthers, but she is romanticizing their heirs.

Cops, Blacks, and Hillary Clinton

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Prediction: If Black Lives Matter does not clean up its act, Obama and Clinton will have to throw this crowd over the side, or the BLM will take her down.

Retro America: Hillary, Pokemon, and Crime

Steve Berman, The Resurgent

Hillary Clinton is to people under 30 what Lawrence Welk was to me growing up. She’s so irrelevant and desperately trying to be hip, it’s cringeworthy watching her fail. One cannot even tell the difference between truth and parody.
