Lolita Zinke: This Election Is About Big Issues

I believe in the power of strong female leadership. I’m a pro-military, pro-equal pay, pro-Second Amendment, pro-immigration, and pro-business Hispanic woman voting for Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton is not a strong leader. Blindly voting for Clinton because she happens to be a woman does not prove feminist bonafides. For me, it would go against everything my husband and I have stood for: love of family, strength of our local community, and defense of our country.

John Zmirak: Trump’s Immigration Stand Is More Catholic than Hillary’s

One of the crucial constituencies in the upcoming election is the Catholic vote, which could be decisive. Swing states such as Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Ohio could turn on how Catholics decide to pull the lever. Recent reports have shown that a surprising percentage of church-going Catholics are leaning toward Hillary Clinton—the most pro-abortion candidate in U.S. history, a woman who has actually called for Christians to be somehow reprogrammed out of our objections to abortion, and who has backed each of the Obama administration’s attacks on religious freedom.

Ed Klein: Hillary Clinton Uses ‘People as Punching Bags’

In making Donald Trump’s temperament the key issue in her presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton has conveniently forgotten Jesus’s famous admonition: “He that is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone.”

James Pinkerton – The Democrats vs. The Deplorables, Part Two: The Immigration Flashpoint 

In an earlier article, “The Democrats vs. The Deplorables: The New Class Struggle Comes to the Midwest,” this author detailed the Democrats’ systematic campaign against the interests of American energy workers, many of them unionized—a curious stance for the presumed party of working people and labor unions. In this piece, I will outline an even more curious stance: the Democrats’ systematic campaign against American border security and American sovereignty.

How Donald Trump Won the Debate

Frank Luntz utilizes an unusual apparatus to definitively evaluate who won a political debate: He takes a small sample of voters, hooks them up to an electronic device, turns on a TV, and carefully tabulates all the moments when they click “like” and “not like” while a politician speaks.

Armstrong Williams: The Black Vote: A Monolithic Betrayal of Diversity

Although I have been a so-called ‘black’ American and a social conservative all my life – and found the two aspects of my identity to be remarkably congruent – I am always surprised when confronted with some of the vitriol that I and my fellow black conservatives face when addressing the black community. I have often wondered why it is ok for other groups to maintain a diversity of political viewpoints – whether they are Asians, Latinos, or Jewish Americans – but black Americans seem to believe that anyone who does not vote the party line is a traitor to his or her race.

The Washington Post: Should the Democrats Be Panicking?

From the Washington Post:

Why doesn’t Hillary Clinton have a double-digit lead over Donald Trump? The fact that she doesn’t is making a lot of Democrats wonder whether hers is a flawed candidacy.

John Fund: WikiLeaks, a Ticking Time-Bomb for Democrats

Bill Clinton’s re-election campaign took a hard hit when news of the John Huang campaign finance scandal broke in October 1996. President Clinton managed to run out the clock and win the election, but, as John Fund writes in National Review, Hillary Clinton’s ability to stonewall her way past scandal in 2016 may be undermined by the ubiquity of the Internet and the power of WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange.

‘Extreme Vetting’: Donald Trump’s Proposal on Homeland Security Harkens Back to Past Victories 

1. Trump Shakes Up the Debate Over Keeping Americans Alive

Donald Trump is talking about homeland security in clear-cut language that Americans can easily understand—and so of course the left is furious. Today’s Democrats, and their handmaidens in the Main Stream Media, just hate it when Republicans emphasize getting tough on lawlessness and terror. Indeed, liberals shudder when they hear the words, “law and order.”

Is NBC News Owned by Hillary Clinton?

Bizarre. That’s the only word to describe how “in the bag” NBC News is for Hillary Clinton. You’d almost think she owns them. You’d almost think she’s blackmailing or bribing them. She must have photos of the head of the NBC News division and anchorman Lester Holt in bed with someone very shocking. It’s that bad.

Jeb Bush: ‘Conservatism Temporarily Dead’; Pope Border Mass Fueled Trump

“I’m disappointed I didn’t break through,” Jeb Bush confessed during an interview with MSNBC Monday night. “This would have been an extraordinary time to serve as President. The country is desperately looking for leadership… I think it requires someone who is not always trying to win, but to solve problems.”
