Amid all the speculation about Hillary Clinton having Parkinson’s Disease, a subdural hematoma or other neurological condition there’s another explanation for Hillary Clinton’s health issues; guilt. The kind of guilt that we see affecting Hillary Clinton’s health is not the legal kind – mens rea – rather it is the soul-searing guilt that psychiatrists have found actually affects one’s health.

Is Donald Trump really a bad manager or is he just an evolving novice politician? Plus, Establishment Republicans are still bitter sore losers, here’s why; Critics try to spin Olympics as countering Trump’s “we’re not winning” theme, and, This year, Republicans should learn from Jimmy Carter.

In a stealth move that would affect nearly every American home and business and compromise national security the Obama Administration is proceeding with an effort that began while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State to illegally giveaway control of the Internet to the likes of Iran, China and Russia.

Dan Bongino earned our endorsement when he said, “I want my campaign to be a salute to working-class Americans just like me – the farmers, the small business owners, the manufacturers – who have been forgotten by this administration, they are now, and have always been, my inspiration and are the reason I’m running for Congress.”

Democrats are finding there is no one quite like Donald Trump when it comes down to practicing for the upcoming presidential debates.

In a column for The American Thinker, “Hillary’s Email Testimony, Powell’s Facts and Mens Rea” our colleague attorney Mark J. Fitzgibbons analyzes Colin Powell’s role in Mrs. Clinton’s “story” of how she came to use her notorious private email server and finds further evidence of Clinton’s criminal intent.

The #NeverTrump faction is sadly mistaken if they think they’re going to lead a post-Trump conservative movement.

"If you look at Donald Trump's campaign now . . . These are charter members of the conservative movement. It's very exciting. I haven't seen anything like this since the 1980 Reagan campaign against [Jimmy] Carter."

In the upside-down world of Obama’s America, a scholar specializing in Islamist terrorism and an organization that specializes in analyzing and writing about terrorism and civilization jihad, and that has concerned Muslims on its board, is claimed to be "Islamophobic" and worthy of police investigation for telling the truth.

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
“Who you walk with tells me a lot about who you are” is an aphorism that I have long applied as a foolproof test of whether a candidate or elected official is going to govern as a conservative. This might be seen as a companion or corollary to another one of my favorite rules of politics – personnel is policy.

  • Stephen Moore, RPC

    Amazingly, a caucus of lifelong Republican politicos in Washington are announcing to the world with defiance and self-righteousness that they will vote for Hillary Clinton.

  • Dylan Matthews, VOX

    Liberal writer Dylan Matthews says if Donald Trump wins in November, hopes for a liberal court are all moot. But if he loses, the dawn of a new era of liberal jurisprudence could be upon us.

  • Mark Landler and Steven Lee Myers, NYT

    The dispute over Hillary Clinton’s email practices now threatens to shadow her for the rest of the presidential campaign after the disclosure on Monday that the F.B.I. collected nearly 15,000 new emails in its investigation of her and a federal judge’s order that the State Department accelerate the documents’ release.

  • Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

    No matter how you feel about Trump (the messenger), his message is one hundred and fifty percent correct. By calling out the Democratic Party’s decades-old plantation politics he has opened up a true dialogue on race, rather than the phony, self-promoting one sought by the left, and called to question the whole sleazy exploitation game behind identity politics.

  • Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

    Such is the unrelenting popular furor at political correctness, the political and media aristocracy, the Obama record, and the immorality of Hillary Clinton that a candidate with no political experience, little campaign cash, and serious character problems may overturn a century of conventional wisdom. The choice of winning or losing the election is now mostly Trump’s own.

  • Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator

    It’s because of Donald Trump that all of a sudden — out of the blue! — American journalists have to “throw out the textbook American journalism has been using for the better part of the past half-century, if not longer….” I’ll go with Hannity any day.

  • Chuck Ross, Daily Caller

    Abedin’s apparent carelessness with classified information highlights the complaints that Clinton and her staff played fast and loose with classified information. FBI director James Comey said last month that Clinton’s use of an off-the-books email system to conduct State Department business was “extremely careless.”

  • Gabby Morrongiello, Washington Examiner

    In one form or another, Trump promised voters in Charlotte; West Bend, Wis., Dimondale, Mich.; Fredericksburg, Va. and now Akron, that his proposals will introduce a new era of prosperity, unity and tolerance in a nation that has been divided and decimated by Democratic policies.

  • Rebecca Savransky, The Hill

    A page on the GOP nominee's website lets supporters volunteer to assume the role of a "Trump Election Observer." It is not clear what the Trump campaign plans to have the volunteers do.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

    At the end, we could see how badly John was failing. But, unlike Maritza, who took wonderful care of him, we did not know how much he was suffering, or the nature of the illness that was taking his life. That he soldiered on in the job he loved for so long is a testament to the courage and character of the man. He persevered.

  • Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

    If we want to win the crucial ideological component of radical Islam’s war against us, we should be empowering these pro-Western Muslims rather than inviting the sharia-supremacist Muslim Brotherhood into our policy-making councils. Like protecting our nation, empowering pro-Western Muslims requires an immigration system that welcomes those who will support our Constitution, and turns away those who would sweep it aside.

  • Ross Kaminsky, The American Spectator

    If you buy the argument, then, that Trump’s real persona, while hardly demure, is not the incorrigible blustery demagogue of recent months but rather a man who is at least occasionally capable of quiet thoughtfulness, respectful disagreement, and even a soft side, the rapid change in campaign style over the past two weeks may be less of an act than it is better coaching urging him to drop the tiresome and divisive shtick.

  • John Bolton, Wall Street Journal

    National security should be central to the 2016 presidential contest. Mr. Trump’s speech is a serious contribution to that end. He needs to maintain his focus and discipline, and by so doing compel Mrs. Clinton to defend her intention to continue President Obama’s failed polices.

  • Nick Gass, Politico

    For Mike Pence, Donald Trump's vow that he will receive 95 percent of the African-American vote in a potential reelection bid in 2020 is both "optimistic" and "pure Donald Trump." But Pence also suggested that the GOP nominee will, in fact, grow his support among all Americans if he is elected president.

    Bill Clinton's announcement that his eponymous collection of charities would refuse foreign and corporate donations should Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump in November came amid renewed scrutiny of the foundation's ever-growing donor rolls. Recently released emails revealed Clinton Foundation donors were provided special access to Hillary Clinton's senior staff in the early months of her tenure.
