  • Remember that 'Republican Woman for Clinton': She's a lobbyist married to a Clinton operative

    Washinton Examiner ^ | 8/19/16 | Timothy P. Carney
    Sometimes our media can be so incurious. After Jennifer Pierotti Lim spoke at the Democratic convention last month, the New York Times interviewed her, describing her only as "the founder of the volunteer group Republican Women for Hillary." Cosmo and the Huffington Post, to their credit, mentioned Lim's employer: the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. None of these publications, in their positive profiles of the Clinton backer, mentioned her occupation: Lobbyist. A lobbyist for the largest lobbying entity in the country gets on stage to praise a presidential candidate, and her job is basically omitted from descriptions of her. That seems...

    Salon Magazine has accused the Republican Party of being out of touch with “post-Christian America,” warning the GOP that if it doesn’t renege on its alliance with Christianity, it will soon become irrelevant. Ted Cruz’s failure to get the GOP nomination, Matthew Sheffield proclaims in Salon, “is a perfect window into trends that will set the pace of American politics for decades to come: Americans are moving away from Christianity, including people most likely to vote Republican.” To back up his claims, Sheffield cites the 2014 Pew Research study finding that 23 percent of Americans say they’re “unaffiliated” with any...

NEW: There are reports that the vehicle carrying Trump was attacked by the protesters. “As Trump’s motorcade left the convention center, protesters swarmed his car, shouting “Hey, hey, ho, ho.

    Anyone with a smartphone can become a Colorado voter First the Left flipped Colorado from a solid Republican red state to solid Democrat blue. Now the Left is opening the floodgates in the Centennial State to massive voter fraud. On the advice of left-wing pressure groups, Colorado Secretary of State Wayne W. Williams, allegedly a Republican, has decided to let anyone with a smartphone become a Colorado voter. Just text a word to Williams’ office and you’ll be given an opportunity to register to vote. (These online documents disappear eventually so I made a PDF for posterity. Read it here.)

    How dare they refuse to protect the queen! You’ve heard by now that the FBI is turning over its notes from the Hillary e-mail interrogation to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Republicans on the committee want to see if Hillary’s answers in the interviews were consistent with what she said under oath when she testified before them earlier this year, and whether there is any basis for a perjury case against her. FBI Director James Comey was very careful in telling the committee that Hillary did not lie “to the FBI.” That doesn’t mean she didn’t lie...

    There appears to be a great deal of angst and anxiety surrounding the 2016 Presidential race that is genuinely unnecessary. When you know the playbook, when you know what’s predictably going to happen, there’s no reason to be upset when each tripwire is triggered. The only time concern is truly warranted, is when one of the tripwires are not triggered. The mosquitoes that buzz, don’t bite – they’re just annoying. Having said that, and having previously outlined the playbook for most of the 2016 election previously, let’s take a closer look at what is on the horizon. However, before outlining...

Beck spoke at the gathering, meant to organize grassroots Republicans operations just 90 days from the November election. He scolded conservatives as more and more Republicans try to distance themselves from Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

The letter comes as a number of Republican senators and high-profile GOP national security officials have come forward saying they cannot vote for Trump. “We believe that Donald Trump’s divisiveness, recklessness, incompetence, and record-breaking unpopularity risk turning this election into a Democratic landslide, and only the immediate shift of all available RNC resources to vulnerable Senate and House races will prevent...

    The Daily Caller’s Senior Writer Jamie Weinstein, a member of the “NeverTrump” faction, has proposed a “negotiated Republican surrender” to Hillary Clinton. The suggested deal rests on the assumption that Clinton is “on a glide path to the White House,” and that Republicans would do best to appease her now. The terms: Republican leaders agree to “rescind” endorsements of Trump in exchange for one Supreme Court seat; rudimentary entitlement reform (read: higher taxes); a “Gang of Eight-style immigration bill”; a federal minimum-wage increase; up-or-down votes on future Supreme Court nominees; and a few national security appointments.

    There is a repeated theme in the arguments made by “NeverTrump,” those Republicans who have sworn not to vote for the party’s nominee, Donald Trump. That theme is: “I, me, mine.” Consider the arguments made by Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) in Tuesday’s Washington Post. She does not compare Trump to Hillary Clinton. She does not discuss his policies. Instead, she offers an extensive internal monologue: “This is not a decision I make lightly”; “I had hoped”; “I have thought long and hard."

The single worst major party nominee in modern history — a man who has no political core, lies practically every time he speaks and is patently unstable — reached this point because every leader and institution in my party, the Republican Party, has failed again and again to grapple with the grim...

Trump being silly and playful in front of TV cameras or utilizing his sense of humor is cast as evidence of a disordered, antisocial mind. The media is focusing on minor benign details and marketing them as the evil deeds of an evil man.

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Hoping to capitalize on the criticism battering Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton has begun portraying support for her candidacy as a patriotic duty of voters. She's broadening her message and appealing directly to Republicans to keep him out of the White House. It's a twist for a Democratic presidential candidate who has some of the highest unpopularity ratings in history. But aides believe Trump's controversial campaign and the chaos it's caused within the Republican Party offers a unique opportunity. In Ohio recently, Clinton urged Republicans "to pick country over party." She told several thousand at a union...

Though the administration says the timing of the $400 million money transfer was coincidental, and part of a resolution of a failed arms deal between the two countries that dates to the Iranian revolution, critics say that a link between the payment and the prisoner exchange is undeniable. “The claim that the timing is coincidental is beyond unbelievable,” said Rep.

Since Graham paid a total of $5,700,248 for all those votes, or $1,013.74 per vote, he wins the prize for electoral waste. . . In fairness to Graham and others who exited the race early, generally those who invested a ton of money in the early primaries only to fail and drop out were by far the least efficient candidates.

    With this platform, we the Republican Party reaffirm the principles that unite us in a common purpose. We believe in American exceptionalism. We believe the United States of America is unlike any other nation on earth. We believe America is exceptional because of our historic role — first as refuge, then as defender, and now as exemplar of liberty for the world to see. We affirm — as did the Declaration of Independence: that all are created equal, endowed by their Creator with inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We believe in the Constitution as our...

    WND ^ | 07/25/2016 | Art Moore
    Jim Gilbreath and his fellow Colorado delegates came to the Republican National Convention “praying for a miracle,” hoping the rules might go their way and allow for a “white knight” candidate to take the place of Donald Trump. As he headed home to Colorado Springs on Saturday afternoon at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, he told WND that while his party has confirmed Trump as the nominee, he and many others in his delegation are not on board. “I can tell you that from the Colorado contingent, there will be quite a few people who will not be out helping Trump,”...

    Complete Headline: Clinton calls out GOP for 'unfounded, inaccurate, mean-spirited attacks' at the RNC and says chants of 'Lock her up!' made her feel sad - in first televised interview with running mate Sen. Tim Kaine Clinton said the RNC convention only seemed to be about criticizing her Said there was no 'positive agenda' in the 'dark, divisive campaign' She also spoke of the 'Hillary Standard' and said she believed there was a concerted effort to ruin her reputation Clinton also said she refused to stoop to Trump's level and call him a nickname, but will discuss his 'inflammatory' comments...
  • Hillary: The Source of Business

    Hillary remains a rich vein of commentary, so much so that I could (and might) spend from now to November writing about her peccadilloes. The one part of her march to the presidency that baffles me is that anyone who runs a business would support her campaign. The woman has no history in business, no understanding of how business operates, and the only laurel on which she relies is that during her husband’s terms business did fairly well. Yet many businesses have paid a pretty penny to hear her sage advice. Ms. Clinton has recently been supporting new restrictions on...

    The Hill ^ | 7/23/2016 | Megan R. Wilson
    Pro-LGBT Republicans, both gay and straight, say the party is going through a fundamental change. Equality issues are not controversial among younger Republicans, majorities of whom support gay marriage and other measures. Richard Grenell, an openly gay former diplomat, told The Hill he is encouraged by how much progress the party has made, even over the last four years. During the 2012 campaign, Grenell stepped down as Mitt Romney’s national security and foreign policy spokesman after to a conservative backlash over his sexuality. “When I walk through the convention, I see politicians, activists and staffers who swarm me to tell...
  • Just Who Is the ‘Establishment?’

    Townhall.com ^ | July 22, 2016 | Ken Blackwell
    We all claim to hate the “establishment.” And why not? Look at the mess around us. It’s obvious that the folks in charge haven’t done a very good job. But who is the establishment? The term gets tossed around a lot as an insult these days – even by some people who sure appear to be part of it. There’s a lot that can go into being a member. Education, job, philosophy, position, mindset. All matter. But attitude trumps experience. Some of those campaigning against the establishment assume that anyone holding office is a member. That’s a big mistake. Many...
  • Networks On Trump: A "Dark Speech" From A "Vengeful" "Demagogue"

    News Busters ^ | July 22, 2016 | Scott Whitlock
    The three networks on Thursday night immediately derided Donald Trump’s “dark speech” as one coming from a “vengeful” “demagogue.” On NBC, Tom Brokaw allowed that “some” will see Trump as on a “white horse who will lead them to some kind of sanctuary and then pull the drawbridge up.” But he sneered, “Others looking in are going to see someone they will only think as a demagogue of some kind.”

    They didn't riot in the streets of Cleveland, as Donald Trump said his supporters would do had things not gone his way. But you saw the raw essence of a riot, the madness and loss of reason, on display in four days of chaos at the Republican National Convention. For a campaign now devoted to "law and order," the launch was mob rule: in spirit, in tone, in words. Long after we've forgotten Trump's closing speech - that paean to self, that nightmare portrait of an America where the lights have gone out - we will remember the savagery just...
