Has the Public Finally Tuned Out Dems' Racial Attacks?

Rich Lowry, New York Post

Confronted with Trump, Democrats don’t have any radioactive denunciations in reserve. They have all been deployed against a couple of generations of Republicans whose politics and characters were starkly different than Trump’s. And will surely be deployed once again – the charges never change, just the target.

The Obama-Clinton banana republic

Kelly Riddell, Washington Times

A fair, balanced, and independent Justice Department. Neutral diplomats, who serve the public over politics, at the State Department. An unbiased, honest, mainstream media. These are just some of our core Democratic values that have eroded under Barack Obama’s presidency, and will continue to decay under Hillary Clinton’s watch.

Trump: Media are 'cogs in a corporate, political machine'

Lisa Hagen, The Hill

At a rally in Panama City, Fla., the GOP presidential nominee didn’t acknowledge his public feud with Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and instead largely trained his fire on the “media establishment.” “The media is an extension of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, it’s just one more way that the system is rigged,” Trump said Tuesday night.

Why Trump's Taxes Won't Hurt Him

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

What happens to America, if the uprisings and rebellions in the two parties—Donald Trump and Ted Cruz in the GOP, the Bernie Sanders revolt in the Democratic Party—are turned back, and we get in 2017 the same old people and same old policies we repudiated in 2015 and 2016?

Gloves Off – The Media Is Liberalism’s Achilles Heel

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

We can resist. Let’s start by de-normalizing the mainstream media. Ask people who have newspapers lying around why they let that poisonous mix of lies and propaganda into their homes. Line your birdcage with something besides Time. Refuse to watch libfascist cable shows, and tell sponsors why you won’t buy products that subsidizes liberal lies and manipulation.

Is Trump the Only Republican Who Can Handle the Media Onslaught?

Matt Lewis, Roll Call

If we’re talking solely about 2016, you could argue that Trump might be the only Republican who can handle the media onslaught — and who has the media smarts to manage it. Republicans who voted for The Donald in the primary wanted a street fighter who could fight fire with fire. We will soon know if their wish came true.

Proof Hillary Clinton Has Lost Control Of The Campaign Narrative

Streiff, RedState

You can postulate that people are writing off Trump's goofs as "oh, that's just Trump saying stupid stuff again" while Clinton's email, the Clinton Foundation, and her health are all easily understood stories and they all speak to dishonesty and a general unfitness to be president.

Donald Trump’s Death Struggle With the Press

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Do the major media understand that in their determination, bordering on desperation, to kill Trump, they are killing their credibility? And as they are losing credibility they are losing the country.

Trump: 'Freedom of the press' doesn't mean writing false stories

Jessie Hellmann, The Hill

Donald Trump continued railing against the media on Sunday, offering his opinion on what freedom of the press means. "It is not 'freedom of the press' when newspapers and others are allowed to say and write whatever they want even if it is completely false!" the Republican presidential nominee tweeted Sunday afternoon.

It Actually Is Unfair That The Press Is Doing This To Donald Trump

Neil Stevens, RedState

The press used these attacks to weaken Rubio and Cruz for the benefit of Donald Trump, and that was very unfair. Now they're doing it to weaken Trump for Hillary Clinton, and it's still unfair. It's going to work, but it's unfair on their parts to do it.

Trump successfully baits media into hysteria. Again.

Thomas Lifson, American Thinker

People who despise him are going to write bad things about him anyway, so why not push them over the edge into revealing more than they intend about their own prejudices?

Pence blasts media for focusing on Trump

Harper Neidig, The Hill

“It seems like every single day the national press latches on to some other issue about my running mate, just each and every day of the week,” Pence said at a rally in Pittsburgh, according to Politico. “But you know what they’re not talking about? Anything having to do with Hillary Clinton.”

Trump Trumps the Liberals’ Fake Outrage Clichés

Kurt Sclichter, Townhall

At least there is one good thing that will come out of this miserable 2016 election cycle, and that's the death of the fake outrage gambit deployed over and over again against GOP candidates by Democrats and their mainstream media gimp platoon.

Anti-Trump Journalist Makes The Case For Trump

Who Isaac Chotner and Glenn Greenwald – reliably liberal to their cores – support for President isn’t really important, the key takeaway from the interview is that the media elite are united in their support for Hillary Clinton and they are also united in their complete and utter contempt for America’s working families who are looking for relief – any relief – from the elite oppression they have suffered for the past three decades.

The American Media Calls Americans Terrorists Quicker Than Actual Terrorists

Erick Erickson, The Resurgent

If a white guy in the United States shoots up any place other than the Family Research Center, the American media quickly pounces and calls it a terrorist attack. But if an Islamic radical does it, it is a mass shooting or work place violence. This is why Donald Trump is actually right on the President’s inability to say “radical Islam.” The President is willing to blame the gun industry and right wing militias and conservative ideology, but he is never willing to blame radical Islamist ideology.

Trump's Three Opponents

George Neumayr, American Spectator

Hillary, the weakest Democratic candidate since John Kerry, enjoys protection not only from her party’s establishment and its appointees but also from reporters and Republicans who are rooting for her to win. Trump has three opponents in effect: the Democratic-media annex and his own party’s establishment, which even at this late date is flirting with dump-Trump delegate schemes at the upcoming convention.

Government/Media elite are ignorant of the American People

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

What I resent most about the Washington hollow men is not the sources and methods through which they parlay wealth, power, and influence, or the values they embrace to exercise and perpetuate their privilege and sense of exalted self, but the feigned outrage that they express when anyone dares suggest, by word or vote, that they are mediocrities and ethical adolescents — and really quite emotional, after all.

Rev. Graham: Daily Headlines Reveal 'Moral Bankruptcy' of America

Michael W. Chapman, CNS News

"Headlines every day reveal what a sad state we’re in," said the reverend, son of pastor Billy Graham.  "CBS News just reported that Caitlyn Jenner will pose nude for the cover of Sports Illustrated, draped only in his Olympic gold medal and an American flag. There’s a lot wrong with that picture!"

The Media is Playing Mouth of Sauron for Trump

Leon H. Wolf, RedState

The idea that Donald Trump has already won this election is a lie – a lie that is told for the specific purpose of demoralizing the anti-Trump forces. If you live in Indiana, don’t believe the lie tomorrow.

Cruz vs. Big Media Guarantees He Will Beat Hillary

Steve Berman, The Resurgent

Should Trump be the nominee, they’ll gleefully eviscerate the man and turn Hillary into Mother Teresa. The best possible thing Republicans could do is nominate Ted Cruz, because once he’s beaten Donald Trump, he’s already beaten Big Media. And with Big Media defeated, Hillary cannot possibly win.
