    Bullies with government power always seem to know how to be creative in censoring their critics, which is one reason why we have the First Amendment as part of our nation's fundamental and paramount law over government itself. California's Democrat Attorney General Kamala Harris is adding a new, extortionate twist to old tricks. She must be stopped.

    A Kentucky county clerk claimed for months that she had a religious liberty right to refuse to issue marriage certificates to same-sex couples. She took her argument all the way to the Supreme Court. The justices agreed with lower courts, which ruled that Kim Davis, as an elected government official, had a duty to comply with the law. Davis has refused to issue any marriage licenses since the high court ruled June 26 that same-sex couples have an equal right to marry.

    The latest poll of Iowa Republicans shows a tightening race and a preference for non-politicians. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson is surging and ties Donald Trump for the top spot at 23 percent. Carly Fiorina is next with 10 percent, followed by Sen. Ted Cruz and Gov. Scott Walker.

    Voters are as sour as I have seen in my 35 years in politics. They are fed up with big government, big media, career politicians and the status quo. They see Trump as tough enough to shake up the system. He doesn’t need special interest money and can’t be bought or bullied.  He’s bold, provocative and interesting. Voters are loving it.

    These polls show the GOP establishment has two real problems. First, nearly two thirds of the base (and I am using Iowa GOP caucus goers as a proxy for the GOP base) have had it with anyone associated with the GOP establishment or leadership. Second, at least in Iowa, Trump is not fading. The more people see him the more favorable their opinion.

  • Michael Bezoian, American Thinker

    If the GOP wants "anyone but Trump," it needs to narrow the field.  If too many candidates stay in the field for too long, they will hurt their own chances and help Trump's chances.  If the party's goal is to defeat Trump, playing the dangerous game of brinkmanship is the exact opposite of what it should be doing.

    Donald Trump recently courted the “tea party” vote ahead of a Nashville straw poll. IJ Review's Kyle Becker reports seven documented positions on the issues where Tea Partiers and Trump seem to be at odds, yet Trump won the straw poll.

    Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz cautioned yesterday against misreading his plan to join GOP juggernaut Donald Trump in an anti-Obama protest in Washington, D.C., as any indicator of a plan to team up on the 2016 ticket. “My focus is on winning the Republican nomination for president, and I’ll tell you, the energy and enthusiasm we’ve got right now is incredible. I could not be more encouraged,” the Texas senator said.

    Distancing himself once again from being seen as an Indian-American, Republican presidential aspirant Bobby Jindal has said immigration without adopting American values represents an "invasion". "We need to move away from hyphenated Americans. We're not African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Indian-Americans, rich or poor Americans. We're all Americans," the Louisiana Governor said.

    Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz prevented consideration of a resolution at the party’s summer meeting here that praised President Obama and offered backing for the nuclear agreement with Iran, according to knowledgeable Democrats.

    He claimed that if you support Donald Trump’s plan to build a wall and secure the border, that means you support big-government bureaucracies and spending. Jeb lamented the cost of the wall on the backs of taxpayers and the manpower it would require from so many new government workers! Oh no!

  • Mark Hensch, The Hill

    Iowa pollster Ann Selzer said Trump is converting skeptics in the Hawkeye State in a way she has never previously encountered, with a nearly complete reversal of his favorable/unfavorable ratings in the span of a couple months.

  • Leon Wolf, RedState

    The media’s treatment of this story has long since passed honest respect for the untimely passing of two young people and wandered into obvious sermonizing on the evils of guns. What’s happening now isn’t news coverage; it’s ghoulish capitalizing on a tragedy for ratings and politics.

    Collisions between black suspects and criminals and white cops are going to increase, and some of these collisions are going to involve shootings. And such shootings trigger fixed, deep-seated beliefs about cops, criminals and injustice, they also cause an instantaneous taking of sides.
