    Instead of reiterating by rote that Islam is a religion of peace, as Washington politicians do, Trump is raising tough questions about why numerous Islamic governments and Muslim believers are decidedly not peaceful. Thus far, Trump haters have made no honest attempt to offer viable answers.

    Conservative voters in OK-2 have a choice tomorrow. They can either keep Rep. Markwayne Mullin, who voted to resurrect the Export-Import Bank, a crony capitalist institution that substitutes politically motivated subsidies for market-driven loans, or they can vote for Jarrin Jackson, a proven conservative fighter who wants to shake things up in Washington.

    Unlike any previous major party platform, the final draft of the 2016 Democratic platform explicitly calls for the repeal of the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits the use of federal funds for abortion except in cases of rape, incest and the life of the mother.

    What presidential voters are looking for — especially in this election — are the candidates’ policy directions. In America’s two-party system, there is generally a decided difference in the candidates’ approaches. So while the media may hang on the words of every promise, voters only need to discern their preferred of two directions.

  • Sarah Westwood, Washington Examiner

    In an election year marked by frustration with the political elite, Clinton's insider ability to evade the press, law enforcement agents, an inspector general inquiry and several congressional probes has been thrown into sharp relief by Trump's outsider aggressive tack. It reinforces the notion that the Washington elite are afforded protection that others don't get.

  • Ben Kamisar, The Hill

    Only one person stands in the way of Marco Rubio emerging from August's Senate primary victorious--and on paper, he looks a lot like Donald Trump. Millionaire Carlos Beruff has endorsed Trump, he's espoused some of the same controversial beliefs, they both have allies in Florida Gov. Rick Scott, and hasn’t been afraid to pour their millions into their bids.

    For now, the candidates’ schedules are thin, as the campaigns will likely focus on fundraising, vetting vice presidential candidates, hiring additional staff, and planning programming for the conventions. This week, both candidates could have key moments.

    It seems that some liberal politicians believe it is acceptable to infringe on Second Amendment rights without due process guaranteed by the Fifth Amendment, while other liberal politicians love to infringe on First Amendment rights by evading the Fourth Amendment, which was supposed to protect papers and effects from unreasonable searches.

    While making the case for the indictment of Hillary Clinton, Trump also outlined an agenda with appeal not only to nationalists, populists and conservatives but working-class and minority Democrats. Rough and raw as it was in parts, Donald Trump’s speech on Wednesday contains the elements of a campaign that can win.

  • Byron York, Washington Examiner

    Trump included actual substance in the speech — new policy proposals and promises — that escaped many observers. In a series of pledges to take action in his first 100 days as president, Trump said he would move on trade, business regulation, energy, and several other topics.

  • Jesse Byrnes, The Hill

    A triumphant Donald Trump on Friday pledged that the U.S. would remain a stalwart ally of Britain after the nation stunningly voted Thursday to leave the European Union. Trump, who had sided with those arguing for the so-called Brexit, slammed President Obama for lobbying Britain to stay in the EU. Trump called it yet another example of Obama getting it wrong on the international stage.

    Follow Herb Brooks’ advice, GOP leaders. Attack. America needs it now. Desperately. Throw the Democrats’ game right back in their face, and start exposing them for what they really are. Poor Americans who continue voting Democrats into office need to know the truth about who they are electing, at least at the national level.

  • Mark Davis, Dallas Morning News

    One conservative truth is rock solid: it is wiser for conservatives to hope for, and actually work toward, a best-case-scenario with Trump than to whine and unplug and allow the known disasters that would flow from Barack Obama's third term.

  • Ben Domenech, The Federalist

    Don’t blame a people for turning on elites who thought they knew better but proved over and over that they didn’t. It is thoroughly rational to want something else instead. Even if that something else turns out not to deliver either, at least you know it’s not the same as what’s failed.

    Trump basically said things about Hillary Clinton that you just don't hear Republicans saying.  You've heard them before.  You've heard them on this program, of course.  You've probably heard similar things that Trump said in other areas.  But you just do not hear Mitt Romney say this, for example.  You wouldn't hear the Bush family talk this way about Hillary.  You wouldn't. You just wouldn't hear it.
