    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Okay, folks, let's just get straight to it. For people watching this debate last night through the usual prism, through the standard inside-the-Beltway, insider establishment elite circles, if you watched the debate with that as your life experience, with that defining your expectations and that defining your analysis and commentary, Hillary Clinton won this debate in a knockout. If that's how you watch these things. And that's how the Drive-Bys see it. That's how party officials see it. That's how elected officials see it. That is how people inside the Beltway in the business of politics saw...

    For the last few months I’ve had a question in my mind: Just what is George Soros up to? Because I could not understand why a great capitalist speculator, a financial operator who makes the Koch Brothers look like altar boys, would be interested in funding a lefty activist group like Black Lives Matter. It didn’t compute. But now I understand. No doubt you readers already figured it out. Alas, I am not so smart. The light went on when I was reading “Progressivism Goes Global” by John Fonte and John Loo in National Review about the plans of the...

    The following scenario is what it could look like, and it does raise a few important questions. The confrontation with the Russians has grown. Russian ships have fired warning shots at an American aircraft carrier in the Mediterranean as the US carrier approaches the Syrian coast. The Russians counter by moving cruise missile carrying warships into place armed with Kaliber missiles, the same ones that smashed into Aleppo killing scores of people. And the Russians are reportedly moving troops up closer to the borders of Eastern Europe. A critical meeting takes place in the White House at 2300 hours (11PM)....

    A few weeks ago, Donald Trump decided his campaign team wasn't Legion of Doomy enough, so he added Breitbart News chairman Stephen Bannon. Now, a presidential candidate forming an alliance with a media website in itself is pretty weird, but Breitbart isn't just any media outlet. Breitbart makes Fox News look like the BBC. If websites were people, Fox News would be your friend who's casually thinking of voting for Trump because they can't stand Hillary Clinton, and Breitbart would be Donald Trump when he went on the WWE.

    I Score the First Debate Posted September 27th, 2016 @ 8:27am Trump and Clinton debated each other for the first time last night. Here’s how I score the night. Clinton won on points. She had more command of the details and the cleaner answers. Trump did a lot of interrupting and he was defensive. If this were a college debate competition, Clinton would be declared the winner. I call that victory on the 2D chess board. But voters don’t care about facts and debating style. They care about how they feel. So let’s talk about that. For starters, Trump and...

Viguerie in a post-debate interview with NewsMax’s John Gizzi. “For those voters who want to change our country's leadership Trump helped them feel that he was an acceptable alternative. Trump tonight did what Reagan did in 1980 for those undecided voters --he showed he Trump Clinton debatewas an acceptable alternative,” observed Viguerie. And post-debate polling appears to back-up Mr. Viguerie’s observations. According to a Breitbart/Gravis “flash poll”...

    We can discuss the polls to determine the victor from last night, and we'd be left with a huge number that say Trump won and a few that say Clinton won. Or, we could look at little, non-scientific groups that networks gather called ‘focus groups’ and we can wonder how any American doesn't realize that a dozen people isn't even vaguely representative of the 320 million Americans. Americans aren't that stupid. Sadly, the media thinks we are. We can look a demeanor, and we'll note the deer-in-the-headlights look of Clinton for the first two-thirds of the debate, or we'll note...

    There is something close to a consensus view among pundits that Hillary Clinton “won” the first presidential debate. As has been true throughout the campaign, the pundits are wrong about Trump. The kind of people who watch a presidential debate with a notepad found Hillary to be well organized, articulate, knowledgeable, and fully presidential. By the conventional rules of the cognitive elite, Trump lost. He was spontaneous, not memorized, emotional, not controlled, and downright angry at times as he reviewed what’s happened to our country over the last decades – the “30 years” Hillary Clinton has been in politics.

    The fix is in. Even if she doesn’t show up for the upcoming presidential debates, Hillary Clinton will be declared the winner. Hillary will be declared the winner by the same media who covered for her when she disparaged millions of hardworking Americans, saying half of Trump supporters belonged in a “basket of deplorables,” consisting of “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic” individuals.People haven’t heard much about Hillary’s “deplorables” comment because that kind of behavior doesn’t fit the narrative. So her media friends changed the subject, reporting about “important” things like how cow farts contribute to global warming, rather than all...

    Alexander Hamilton said energy in the executive is essential. That was back in what used to be called the critical period of American history -- when the still new Republic was threatening to come apart, as eventually it did in the next century. But this crisis is now and needs to be dealt with now, and decisively now. Instead, the major parties have nominated (a) a buffoon who seems willing to say anything that will give him and his followers a moment in the spotlight in this age of Trump and all things Trumpian, and (b) a "leader" with little...

It's time for Donald Trump to trust American voters with the truth. Call it a modern version of "Scared Straight." I'm a small businessman. I'm at ground zero. I'm living the real-world results of Obama's economic policies every day. It's a disaster out here. The middle class is destroyed, shattered, annihilated.

    Celebrating the racial diversity of the Charlotte protesters last week, William Barber II, chairman of the North Carolina NAACP, proudly proclaimed, "This is what democracy looks like." Well, if Barber is right, so, too, was John Adams, who warned us that "democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide." Consider what the protesters, who, exults Barber, "show us a way forward to peace and justice," accomplished. In the first two nights of rioting, the mob injured a dozen cops, beat white people, smashed and looted stores,...

    Someone might want to inform Hillary Clinton that greed and envy are two of the seven deadly sins. Her new revised tax plan would raise the estate tax to as high as 65 percent -- up from 40 percent, where it is today. She would also apply this hated death tax to as many as twice as many estates. It's one of her dumbest ideas yet -- and that is saying a lot. It won't raise any revenue to speak of. It's a bow-tied gift to estate-tax lawyers and accountants. Many studies have found that the cost to the economy...

    Let's step back, as we approach the first presidential debate of the 2016 campaign, and look back to try to understand how voting patterns have changed over a generation, by comparing the 2012 presidential results with those of 1988 -- keeping in mind possible shifts since 2012 suggested by 2016 polling. My thesis is that changes in states' voting behavior can best be explained by surges of migration over the past generation -- not just immigration, a subject of obvious interest this campaign season, but even more of internal migration within the United States. The overall picture is one of...

    Black Lives Matter has been guided to anti-Semitism by the concept of "intersectionality, which argues that all oppressions are interlinked and cannot be solved alone. Thus, women can never be treated fairly if blacks face racial prejudice, and the disabled are not given sufficient support to be equal to the abled, and unless the Palestinians are liberated from the Israelis, and the Israelis are liberated from their lives and their home. "Intersectionality" urges us to view the world as divided into a conspiracy of oppressors and an agony of oppressed, and reduces people to a number of categories, such...

Four days of intense debate preparation with Trump preceded the talk. Giuliani insisted the time has come for the US to “reject the whole notion of a two-state solution in Israel.” It can only be hoped that regardless of who prevails in November, Giuliani’s statement will become the official position of the next US administration. .

    Obama's Legacy of Demagoguery and Divisiveness The “Ferguson effect” takes its toll on the African-American community while race relations are at a nadir. When Obama assumed office in 2009, there were high hopes that the first African American president with bi-racial parents would be able to bridge the racial divide and foster unity in the country. Those hopes were soon dashed. Nearly eight years later, the nation is more polarized than ever, as devastating race riots grip large metropolitan cities with alarming frequency. Instead of offering hope, Obama gave us demagoguery. Instead of fostering unity he stoked and encouraged...

    Back in the 1960s, as large numbers of black students were entering a certain Ivy League university for the first time, someone asked a chemistry professor -- off the record -- what his response to them was. He said, "I give them all A's and B's. To hell with them." Since many of those students were admitted with lower academic qualifications than other students, he knew that honest grades in a tough subject like chemistry could lead to lots of failing grades, and that in turn would lead to lots of time-wasting hassles -- not just from the students, but...

No amount of practice, it seemed, could fully prepare her - or perhaps anyone - for Donald J. Trump's hurricane of factual distortion, taunting interruptions and blustery generalities.

Pennsylvania’s likely voters split 45% for Clinton, 44% for Trump, 6% for Johnson and 3% for Stein. Those divides are well within each poll’s 3.5-point margin of sampling error.In both states, sharp divisions among whites by education are evident, with white college graduates choosing Clinton over Trump...

Obvious answer: No. The reporter isn’t reporting, and journalism is merely a ruse. What’s being undertaken is propaganda. No exaggeration. Propaganda, it is, and mainstream media practitioners are “propagandists.” It’s high time to brand both as such and make it stick. So you’re thinking this is much adieu about nothing.

    The first presidential debate is tonight at Hofstra University. Hillary Clinton’s debate team is likely spending most of their time and effort trying to manufacture moments where she causes Donald Trump to become ‘unhinged.’ Clinton must prove that Trump is unqualified and lacks the temperament to be president. Trump only needs to prove he is capable of handling the pressure in order to win the debate. Some infer this means Trump will be ‘graded on the curve.’ He will be. This is completely fair given that he has just 18 months of political experience compared to Clinton's nearly 40 years....

Yet if he was innocent, why did he run?It seemed all of America was waiting with baited breath. What would the jury decide?Many Americans stood gathered around TV monitors in public places, and as the words “Not guilty” were pronounced something extraordinary happened....

    South Bay California politics is heating up. I’m not talking about San Jose. I’m talking about Torrance, my home, the Balanced City. Our state assembly seat is California’s balance of power, where Democrats are desperate to re-seize the supermajority in Sacramento. But we’re not going to take the left-wing Democrats’ abuse us anymore. Conservatives in blue states have to step up, and we California conservatives follow the Trump Model. We can’t take anything for granted, and we do not play nice! If there is anyone who embodies this new “Get Tough” approach, its’ Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Maricopa County Sheriff Joe...

    …a nation ringed by walls would only imprison itself…Israelis and Palestinians will be better off if Palestinians reject incitement and recognize the legitimacy of Israel, but Israel recognizes that it cannot permanently occupy and settle Palestinian land. – Barack Hussein Obama, UN General Assembly Sept. 20, 2016 I should imagine that the title of this article—ostensibly laudatory towards Obama—may raise eyebrows among some of my regular readers. But patience—I urge you to reserve judgement. As is usual with Obama’s prepared appearances, his Tuesday address to the UN General Assembly was an eloquent concoction of soaring rhetoric and banal platitudes, of...

    Not long from now, the American people will go to the polls to elect the next president of the United States. We face tremendous challenges — a stagnant economy, racial tension and growing threats from radical Islam. Voters increasingly feel the American dream is slipping away, that their children will be worse off, that the system is rigged against them and is not working for them. The vast majority of Americans — as many as Gary Bauer Hail Hillarytwo-thirds of us, according to the latest polls — know we are on the wrong track. We need a change. In this...

    So here we are. In a campaign that has featured many unexpected blockbuster developments, here comes a massive moment that has been expected all along: the first actual debate between the two major party nominees. From the time it became clear that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton would be the two candidates on this stage, the narrative has been that it was her election to lose, and that Trump would need a stellar performance to have the remotest shot at beating her November 8. Then real voters, and real events, intervened. Plenty of real Republican voters have shed their NeverTrump...

    THE EDITOR, Sir: Aren't you just tired of all our government leaders making all these promises that they will 'make Jamaica great again', but has never made good on it? I have lived long enough to see more than seven elections, and Lord knows I have had it with all the promises of a paradisiac condition, a crime-free country, great health-care facilities, excellent schools with affordable, if not free, education. Equality for all. No corruption. Transparency in government and state businesses. When will I see any radical changes? Since Jamaica always emulates other First World countries, like the United States,...

    The Sunday before the first presidential debate of 2016 was filled with analysis and speculation about how the candidates were going to perform. It was the same on CNN’s Inside Politics were their panel touted Hillary Clinton’s ability to debate.  Host John King played a clip of Clinton leaving Senator Bernie Sanders speechless after slamming his questions about her speaking fees as a smear, saying it was a clue about how Monday’s debate might turn out. CNN’s Nia-Malika Henderson seemed almost in awe of Clinton’s counter of Sanders, noting his lack of a response wasn’t good for him. “One of...

    Ever wonder why there are so many Muslims and Muslim countries in the world? Over the millennia many countries were conquered, but didn't remain Persian or Greek or Roman as the case may be. You see, the countries conquered in the name of Islam, became and remained Islamic. For example Pakistan, part of India, and Malaysia both were Hindu; Turkey, Iraq, Syria, Egypt and N. Africa were Christian; Afghanistan was Buddhist. They are all Islamic now. This transformation was not by chance but by design. All these countries were conquered by force then shorn of their wealth and many of...

    Playing Gabrielle Union Wants to Talk With Kate Upton About Racial Inequality Gabrielle Union wants to use her platform to educate and inspire. The Birth of a Nation star has already been vocal about her director and co-star Nate Parker’s rape allegations, but she recently told XoNecole that she has no plans to boycott the buzzed-about film. “Some people have said, ‘If you’re a feminist, you should boycott the film.’ And I was like, ‘But wait, my role in the film and the reason I signed on was to talk about sexual violence,’” she explained. “So it feels a** backwards...

    The anxiety is palatable. The question will not be made audible, but it remains: is she losing this election? Is it really slipping away? To put it in the words of Hillary Clinton: "Why am I not winning by 50 points?" 1. Epistemological poisoning. The depth of public outrage has been the consistent misunderstanding of all pundits trying to explain the current election. Why is the public so mad? Why do people seem to love Trump so much? Those charged with telling us the truth – journalists, the federal government, politicians, academia, Hollywood, and the Church – do not. The...

    From childhood, we have had ingrained in us that in order for interactions between people to work, especially competitive interactions, everyone has to “follow the rules”. The reason we have rules is that we have people, and people are sometimes dishonest cheats. The rules are put in place to prevent the dishonest cheats from winning unfairly, because they are despicable thieves who would steal what rightfully belongs to someone else. Nobody likes a cheat, except perhaps other cheats or those who stand to share in what the cheater steals from the honest participant. That is, nobody with an ounce of...

    Tomorrow night we’ll see the much-awaited matchup one-on-one “debate” between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Her staff is working with the debate commission to erase height and stamina advantages of her opponent. They asked that the debate be by seated opponents which was refused as was their effort to allow her to stand on a hidden stool. Her podium will be lowered though so when the camera sweeps from candidate to candidate viewers might not notice he is considerably taller than she. Outside of the debate hall in Charlotte, North Carolina, another drama is taking place. Apparently "Black Lives Matters"...

    People magazine’s interview with Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine in the October 3 issue carried the usual hard-hitting questions from Sandra Sobieraj Westfall: “Here’s one you probably won’t get in the debates: What emoji best describes you?” Clinton replied “All the happy emojis, the heart eyes, the hug ones. I use them with family.” Back in April, People asked Trump about comparisons to Hitler, and found an expert to suggest Trump could end America. The story was headlined with a quote from Kaine: “She’s the Boss.” People sought to play down her pneumonia (with no reference to the “overheated” lying...
