op ed review 9/25

Do people around the world have a right to move to the United States? It´s a bedrock belief of most conservatives that there is no such right. Now, Hillary Clinton says there is such a right, at least if a tweet from her campaign headquarters can be taken for a policy pronouncement.

The latest vote projection from elections guru Nate Silver has Republican Donald Trump just six electoral votes short of winning and one point away from equaling Hillary Clinton's popular vote.
Trump is headed for a win, says professor who has predicted 30 years of presidential outcomes correctly

Supporters of Candidate Trump have crushed all historic fundraising records for small (under $200/per) “grass roots” donations. Over 2.1 million individual small donations in 3 months.
But due to Clinton’s advantage with wealthy donors, she is outspending Trump by a factor of about five to one.  Even with that she has failed to put away Trump, and many anxious Democrats are baffled as to why the race remains so close.

Dr. Ben Carson:  9/13

In a very telling moment, Hillary Clinton maligned me and millions of other Americans as racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic and Islamophobic "deplorables."

I'm so tired of this line of attack that normally taunts conservatives. Well let me be very specific in my response. I believe in expanding opportunity, not welfare; that's not racist.  I believe every life is worth protecting, particularly the unborn; that doesn't make me sexist.  I believe marriage is between one man and one woman; that's not homophobic.

I believe in borders, the rule of law and our sovereign right to decide who to let into our country; that's not xenophobic.  I believe radical Islam is a mortal threat to America and Western civilization; that is common sense, not Islamophobia.

My nationwide ‘Fight for the Court’ project is about explaining and protecting our Constitutional values. As you can see, they're under constant assault, and if we allow the Left to institutionalize their vision of a European-style, government-dominated, secular society through our courts, we are going to lose our country for a generation.

If you're tired of being vilified for believing in the Constitutional, Judeo-Christian values that made America great, please help me send a message by signing up to join me now. We must use moments like this as opportunities because this is not just name-calling. The Left is using every tool at their disposal to whitewash our history and undercut our institutions.

The difference is that I believe in our nation as it was founded. I believe in "We the People," but it requires us to constantly reach out, inform, and mobilize conservatives. There are a lot of challenges before us and a lot of problems to solve. I've decided to concentrate on a few. ‘Fight for the Court’ is about protecting our Constitutional values.

Elections every few years are our opportunity to correct course if necessary, but the Supreme Court can be lost for a generation or more.  I ask you to join me by signing up and helping us to continue this fight. Thank you for your commitment.


“…..we have a commander in chief who cavalierly sends soldiers to the battlefield without a clear definition of victory or realistic rules of engagement, regards military strategy as an unnecessary evil, and doesn't mind leaving erstwhile allies in the lurch because Mother Earth may or may not be one degree Celsius hotter at some unspecified time in the future. We've come a long way from the days of peace through strength.”
               -Mark Alexander

: "[J]ournalists need a refresher course on the plain meaning of English words. Breaking windows, stealing cigarettes, Red Bull and drugs, attacking journalists and other innocent bystanders is not a protest. That is a riot. It has no relationship whatsoever to a black police officer shooting an armed black man. But most media continued to refer to the violence as 'protests.'"

 “Since 9/11, hundreds of immigrants and their children have been implicated in terrorist activities in the United States……My opponent has the most ‘open borders’ policy of anyone to ever seek the office of president…”

Obama lie #994:  “…..we assume that there are going to be—out of four, five, six hundred people that get released—a handful of them are going to be embittered and still engaging in anti-U.S. activities and trying to link up potentially with their old organizations," Obama said.  That wasn't true. When Obama made this claim, 653 detainees had been released. Of that group, 196 had been confirmed (117) or suspected (79) of returning to jihadist activity upon their release. Those numbers came from the office of the director of national intelligence and represent the U.S. government's official count of Guantánamo recidivism. Nearly one-in-three former detainees returned to the fight, not a "handful," as the president suggested.

The most recent revelation to show the duplicity and outright lying of Hillary about the email scandal was the discovery that her outside tech specialist sought help on a public forum to delete email addresses from the files of a "very VIP" client before shipping them to others.  "These records, as a consequence of their ownership by Secretary Clinton, are federal records. In essence, Paul Combetta, a private citizen, was seeking assistance for how to modify federal records before export to an unknown entity…. Altering archived government records is against the law.”

Lots of “Deplorable and Proud of It” merchandise now:

"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms ... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."

op ed review 9/18

Trump up in most polls, Hillary sinking.   Trump up by 8 in Iowa, 13 in Missouri, 3 in Ohio, 3 in Florida.
Republican voter surge.

Donald Trump unveiled a new visual campaign theme in Miami on Friday – a mashup of the Broadway musical 'Les Misérables' and an epithet Hillary Clinton leveled at his supporters one week ago. He took the stage, introduced by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, as the 'Les Mis' anthem 'Do You Hear the People Sing' blasted through loudspeakers. The video screen behind the podium flashed to an artistic rendering of 'Les Deplorables,' complete with USA and 'Trump' flags replacing the French colors, and a bald eagle soaring over the revolutionary scene.

Trump slams Clinton gun control policies: 'Her bodyguards should drop all weapons and see what happens….’
Nation's largest police union endorses Trump...

“Donald Trump made his best case yet for his presidential candidacy Thursday. In a speech to the New York Economic Club, he tamped down on needless populism and zeroed in on the No. 1 issue affecting Americans: the anemic Obama economy and Hillary Clinton’s bizarre embrace of the policies that caused it. Now, if he can only give a variation of that speech every day until Election Day.”
“Trump presented perhaps the most important policy presentation of his campaign yesterday, to the Economic Club of New York, and yet it pales in electoral impact to his appearance on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. No TV news operation, not even MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, could resist the video of an impish Jimmy Fallon asking and receiving permission to muss Donald Trump’s hair. Whoever thought this up (and my money is on Kellyanne Conway) identified exactly the best leverage point to redefine Trump-the-candidate as not at all scary and mean, but rather a guy who is game.”

The mainstream media, from Bloomberg News to MSNBC to Politico to the Washington Post and more, have all confirmed: Hillary Clinton’s 2008 Campaign was the original source of ‘Birtherism’ About Barack Obama
But the mainstream press continues to insist that Hillary Clinton and company were never involved in promoting "birther" rumors.

Panicked Democrats pull out all stops:  Hillary Clinton ally David Brock is offering a cash reward for dirt on Donald Trump.

The New York Times thinks this is great:  “progressive” parents create a lifetime of confusion for their son:   “….we didn’t want his…creative output to be curtailed by a lack of costume choices, so we (gave him) high heels, a pink straw hat, a dazzling fairy skirt and a sparkly green halter dress…..When he woke up on that last day of summer vacation, the first thing he said was that he wanted to wear skirts and dresses to first grade.”

How to tell if you are a “deplorable.”  Howie Carr  9/14
Are you a “deplorable,” one of those dreadful Donald Trump supporters who so offend Hillary Clinton’s delicate sensibilities? As far as she’s concerned, the deplorables are expendable, in order to make room for her “basket” of voters, the despicable and the deportable.

If Hillary hadn’t had that problem with seasonal allergies or overheating or chronic dehydration or pneumonia or whatever they’re calling it now, her “deplorables” slur would be getting a lot more play.

Didn’t Barack Obama say a few months back that a candidate couldn’t insult his way to the presidency? I guess he was referring to Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton, apparently, can.

In case you’ve been wondering which side you’re on, you may be a deplorable if you stand for the National Anthem. Or if you know all the words to the Pledge of Allegiance, especially, “under God.” Or if when you go to Market Basket, you tend to buy generic products, because you’re using your own money, not an EBT card.

You may be a deplorable if you just got your car inspected. If you’re deployable, you’re definitely deplorable. If you wake before noon, if you call Islamic terrorists Islamic terrorists, if you don’t have an Obamaphone and you don’t believe that global warming is “settled science” — can you say deplorable? You may be deplorable if your passport, driver’s license and credit cards are all in the same name.

Saying Merry Christmas — Deplorable with a capital D!

You may be a deplorable if you wouldn’t mind showing some ID at the local precinct before you vote. You are most assuredly a deplorable if you have more than one job. You may be a deplorable if you’ve never used Western Union to wire welfare cash south of the border. You may be a deplorable if all of your children have the same last name — and it’s your last name. Or if while watching the second Monday night NFL game you were less irritated by the streaker than you were by all the fawning coverage of Colin Kaepernick on the pre-game show.

You may be a deplorable if you resent training your H1-B replacement. Or the fact that the Earned Income Tax Credit is NOT earned. Nothing says deplorable like the National Rifle Association.

If you liked your doctor and wanted to keep your doctor, if you wear pants rather than pajamas when you leave the house, if you were passed over for the job even though you got a 95 on the civil-service test — you know what you are.

You may be a deplorable if you don’t think you should have to press one for English. If you lost your security clearance and your job for mishandling classified information, you are deplorable. You may be a deplorable if you identify as a member of the gender in which you were born. Or if you drained your 401(k) or took out a second mortgage on your house to pay for your kid’s tuition at UMass while the illegal alien down the hall goes on the arm. Or if you believe that good fences make good neighbors.

You’re most definitely a deplorable if you have an American flag flying in your front yard. Or if you’ve never windsurfed with John Kerry on Nantucket, or stood in line with Sen. Warren at your local “cheese shop.” You are a deplorable if you believe All Lives Matter.

If you’ve never needed a “safe space,” or heeded a “trigger warning” — deplorable. If you’ve gone to the store and ordered a “Proud to be Deplorable” T-shirt — yes, you know very well what you are.


“As this pneumonia episode demonstrates, Clinton’s real problem isn’t her health but the entirely valid perception that she’s dishonest, secretive and exploits ‘the system’ — including the support of the mainstream media — for her benefit.”
                      -Jonah Goldberg

“While [Hillary Clinton] slanders you as deplorables and irredeemables, I call you hard-working American patriots [who] love your country and want a better future for all our people. You are everybody. Above all else, you’re Americans and you’re entitled to leadership that honors you, cherishes you and totally defends you.”
                     -Donald Trump
