    Investor's Business Daily ^ | 10/19/2016 | John Merline
    After more than a week of blistering attacks from Democrats, celebrities and the press, Donald Trump has managed to pull ahead of Hillary Clinton by 1 percentage point — 41.3% to 40% — in a four-way matchup, according to the new IBD/TIPP poll released today. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson got 8% and Green Party candidate Jill Stein got 6%. The results are the first in the IBD/TIPP presidential tracking poll. Daily updates start Thursday and will continue until the election. The IBD/TIPP poll previously was monitoring support for the candidates in the 2016 election on a monthly basis.

    Remember Wendy Davis? She was the Texas Democrat who became an MSM darling for her filibuster against a state law restricting abortions. Davis exploited her 15-minutes of fame by running for Governor of Texas in 2014. But despite the backing of an adoring press, Davis got demolished, losing by more than 20 points to Greg Abbott. For the record, my home county of Hood showed its scorn by awarding Davis all of . . . 18.9% of the vote. So when on today’s Morning Joe, Politico co-founder Jim VandeHei claimed that Hillary Clinton is so far ahead that she has...

    In 1974, Jamie Escalante took a job at Garfield High School in East Los Angeles, California. He found himself in a challenging situation: teaching math to Hispanic students at a rundown school known for violence and drugs. While many dismissed his students as unteachable, Escalante pushed them to reach their potential. He started an advanced mathematics program with a handful of students. He was so successful a testing service accused his students of cheating. They weren’t. Hollywood made a fine movie out of the story called “Stand and Deliver” (1988). Escalante’s students were the last ones expected to succeed academically...

    Joe Scarborough was probably just trying to make the point that Donald Trump is very unpopular with black voters, but he wound up saying something that some might view as insulting to African-Americans. Interviewing Al Sharpton on today’s Morning Joe, he asked about the Rev’s view that Hillary has not been doing enough to appeal to black voters. As Sharpton prefaced his remarks by observing that Hillary is way ahead of Trump among black voters, Scarborough interjected “my dog’s way ahead of Trump among black voters.” Watch the video and note how Scarborough trails off at the end, possibly realizing...

They couldn’t care less about their personal safety (“Let anybody and everybody into the country—sure, why not?”), and blithely dismiss America’s malignant massive debt and dismal economic condition as much ado about nothing. They are, in a word, idiots. The fact that Clinton’s supporters (most notably the media) think that she won the...

    This Insurrectionist finds Mark Halperin to be among the most cautious and level-headed of pundits. The With All Due Respect host typically avoids wild speculation and is generally of the one-the-one-hand and on the other school of analysis. So it was striking that on today’s Morning Joe, Halperin, with some prodding from Joe Scarborough, suggested that Donald Trump might be planning a big October surprise in the nature of a “revelation” about Hillary Clinton. One sensed that Halperin had some inside knowledge of the situation, though all he mentioned in support of his theory is that Trump is surrounded by...

    Voters got it. But the pundits - who generally want to score a presidential debate like a high school debate tournament - missed it There is much more going on in a debate than just the rhetorical thrust and parry and the mastery of policy details A presidential debate is also a job interview, an unspoken conversation between the candidates and the American people about trust, strength, compatibility, and more. These things are hard to quantify, particularly for a pundit class that often misses the forest for the trees.

    In the leftist realm of insults, there’s nothing more cliche than calling one’s enemy “Hitler.” Aside from how lazy it is, a socialist-leaning leftist calling anyone else “Hitler” is rich. Ironically speaking. For election 2016, creative-insult-deprived leftist twits have familiarly reached into their bag of tricks, comparing Donald Trump to “Hitler.” The etymologically-challenged even call Trump “Literally Hitler.” Gawd. Except no. If there’s a candidate whose polices resemble Hitler’s, it isn’t Trump. It’s Hillary. Yes, really. VIDEO:

"Trump's supporters are dangerous to this country," said Clinton Thursday night, much to the delight of the $10,000 a plate guests attending the swank fundraiser.

The question is, however, after months of incredible outrage directed at Trump, how much damage can the MSM do to the Donald? The MSM thought that Donald Trump had a bad Friday, not as bad as face-planting into the Scooby van, but bad.

The incestuous relationship between aldermen and gangs blurs the line between good and evil. 85 years of Democratic rule has left Chicago with a reputation as the most corrupt city in the US.

Although kindly giving her the benefit of the doubt for the time being, he made clear that he expects her to trigger article 50 before the end of January 2017. If she does not, he implied, he'll take action. May has, since becoming Tory-leader and, therefore, prime minister, made clear she intends to follow through on the referendum results in which British voters opted to leave the European Union (called a Brexit). So far so good, Farage...

Nothing was the same for them and for the political elite after Rome fell. The rulers became the ruled. And nothing will be the same for the ruling political and media elite in the U.S. either if Washington falls to Trump as well.

    On Wednesday, America's Vice President Joe Biden will arrive in Turkey. His main mission is to smooth things over with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who is getting angrier with the United States by the day. The reason Erdogan is so angry with the United States is, Erdogan says, that America still provides a safe haven to Islamic scholar Fethullah Gülen, who Ankara accuses of being behind the failed military coup on July 15. Both before, but especially after the coup, the Turkish government has accused Gülen, who lives in Pennsylvania, of being a terrorist leader comparable to ISIS self-declared...

    There have been numerous articles about the crime of the century that’s only 16 years old. In one, it’s claimed that a crowd of screaming Brazilians, eager to taste American blood surrounded the car he was in, banging on it, apparently on the verge of being a murderous mob, so much so that the harried by the lies of Lochte Rio police had to save him out of a total dedication to law enforcement principles. But oddly, nowhere in the article that contains dozens of photos do we see a murderous mob. Only a mob of reporters surrounding the car...

    There is perhaps no better example of waste in the scandalous Veterans Administration than the millions spent on art instead of on care. You could begin with the $670,000 spent on two sculptures at a California blind veterans rehabilitation center that the blind veterans cannot even see. It may be ludicrous to point out that, as far as the Obama administration and the VA is concerned, it is the blind leading the blind. But that is the way it seems.

    Mother Nature Network considers him a climate change hero, based on the fact that he killed lots of people (and people are a scourge upon the earth): "Over the course of the century and a half run of the Mongol Empire, about 22 percent of the world's total land area had been conquered and an estimated 40 million people were slaughtered by the horse-driven, bow-wielding hordes. Depopulation over such a large swathe of land meant that countless numbers of cultivated fields eventually returned to forests." Not sure why they left out Stalin and Mao.

    he Intercept recently began releasing batches of top secret internal newsletters from the most important division of the NSA, the Signals Intelligence Directorate, or SIGINT. This is basically the spy division. The internal newsletter, SIDtoday, was never meant to be read by anyone outside of the agency, but it trickled out with the Snowden leak and has been waiting for proper publication.

    Donald Trump’s campaign got another shakeup this morning, part of a reset that includes the first TV advertising in Florida and other battlegrounds. Trump has brought on Breitbart News’ Stephen Bannon as CEO, a man the campaign heralded for his combative style, and elevated Kellyanne Conway to campaign manager. Paul Manafort will remain as chairman. Conway is a former pollster for the Tampa Bay Times. “I have known Steve and Kellyanne both for many years. They are extremely capable, highly qualified people who love to win and know how to win,” Trump said in a statement. “I believe we’re adding...
