    The Washington Examiner ^ | October 21, 2016 | Adam Brandon
    When the 115th Congress convenes in January, the House of Representatives may vote on a rules package that guts a powerful tool that allows members of the lower chamber to keep the speaker in check. In September, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., proposed a change to the rules of the House that would dissolve the privileged status of the "motion to vacate the chair," which allows any member of the House to introduce a resolution to depose the speaker. Under the current rules of the House, the resolution must receive a vote by the full chamber. The proposal put forward by...

    I attended a small GOP meeting in my local burg this AM to check out Darryl Glenn, the Colorado GOP candidate for U.S. Senate. Darryl has repeatedly flip-flopped on his support for Trump. I got to ask the first question, namely, "What's your stance on Trump?" Darryl's answer: I've already voted for him. His staff were covered with Trump/Pence stickers and they were available on his handouts table. Later on, Steve House, Colorado GOP Chairman, made several very interesting remarks: 1. Trump is within 2 points of Hillary in Colorado and the NBC,etc. polls are completely bogus. 2. Republican candidates...

    A wave of apprehension and anguish swept the Republican Party on Thursday, with many GOP leaders alarmed by Donald Trump’s refusal to accept the outcome of the election and concluding that it is probably too late to salvage his flailing presidential campaign. As the Republican nominee reeled from a turbulent performance in the final debate here in Las Vegas, his party’s embattled senators and House members scrambled to protect their seats and preserve the GOP’s congressional majorities against what Republicans privately acknowledge could be a landslide victory for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. With 19 days until the election, the Republican...

    TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas' top election official said Thursday that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was justified in refusing to promise now that he'll accept the election results, even as the state party chief and a GOP senator on the ballot urged candidates to do so. Secretary of State Kris Kobach called criticism of Trump over his refusal during Wednesday night's presidential debate to commit to accepting the results "rather amusing." He said no candidate should concede if the race is close and there are questions about the count, citing the 2000 contest in Florida, decided by fewer than...

    CLEVELAND, Ohio — A high-ranking employee at the Ohio Republican Party made a 'bad decision' when she created a crudely named Twitter account that mocked the director of Donald Trump's campaign in Ohio, according to the state party's top official. In a brief email on Wednesday, Ohio Republican Party Chairman Matt Borges acknowledged that ORP Executive Director Katie Eagan created the parody Twitter account on Sunday that mocked Bob Paduchik, the Ohio state director for the Donald Trump campaign. The account was created on Sunday, the day after Paduchik publicly renounced the Trump campaign's relationship with Borges, and deleted on...

    When John Quincy Adams entered office in March, 1825, he had lofty ideas both domestically and on the global front. The younger Adams had one of the most impressive resumes of a new president. He was widely regarded as one of the most successful secretaries of state in our history, and presided over the tranquil years of the Monroe presidency. Yet, the Jacksonian Democrats who dominated Congress, buoyed by the voting bloc of the southern states, absolutely decimated Quincy’s agenda and rendered his entire presidency an utter failure. There is no reason the same dynamic cannot occur during a potential...

Truly, the locker room jesting of Donald Trump was reprehensible, so standing on his principles, Paul Ryan can no longer support Donald Trump in good conscience. This is the new selective righteousness of the GOP. Paul Ryan's principles and this new righteousness bear very little semblance to America's traditional righteousness, but a striking resemblance to Islamic Righteousness. For example, Paul Ryan is outraged by the course jesting of Donald Trump, yet he fully funds the Planned Parenthood abortion mill / baby part...

POLITICO reporters Jake Sherman and John Bresnahan wrote, in an article entitled “Ryan Abandons Trump,” that:
 “Ryan stopped short of formally rescinding his endorsement of Trump – but just short. His move carries immense risk and Ryan faced blowback from all sides: Trump and his surrogates preemptively warned Republican leaders they would pay a price for breaking from the nominee.”

The man was sitting just behind Reagan as the Gipper explained that everything Carter believed was dangerous nonsense. The other thing that jumps out, when watching old Reagan speeches, is that no Republican talks like that anymore.

However, it would appear that rank-and-file GOP voters are, once again, rejecting these calls from their party’s elites, and are prepared to stick by Trump’s side, at least for now.

    POLITICO is now reporting that the RNC’s “Victory” project — an effort by the committee to ensure that Donald Trump is elected as the nation’s next president — has been halted. According to the report by Alex Isenstadt, the RNC, “appeared to at least temporarily halt the operations,” of the effort....

    Almost nobody in the Republican Party is defending Donald Trump right now, in the wake of a new Washington Post report showing him speaking in very lewd terms about women in 2005. And the denunciations that have rolled in so far are coming from all sides of the party — from those who support Trump to those who have long opposed him to those close to him who are offering platitudes about how what he said was wrong, but that he's still better than Hillary Clinton. Below, the five emerging categories of Trump critic:

    ALBANY— The New York State Republican Committee is helping Donald Trump — in Colorado and other swing states. A pro-Trump/anti-Hillary Clinton mailer sent to voters in Colorado says it is being paid for by the New York State Republican Committee. State Party Chairman Ed Cox said he was asked by the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee for the help....

    Thirty Former GOP Congressmen Come Out Against Trump A group of 30 former Republican members of Congress have publicly come out Donald Trump. It's the largest group of former Republican elected officials to officially announce their opposition to the current leader of their party. Here's a list of signatories: Steve Bartlett (R-TX) Bob Bauman (R-MD) Sherwood Boehlert (R-NY) Jack Buechner (R-MO) Tom Campbell (R-CA) Bill Clinger (R-PA) Tom Coleman (R-MO) Geoff Davis (R-KY) Mickey Edwards (R-OK) Harris Fawell (R-IL) Ed Foreman (R-TX) (R-NM) Amo Houghton, Jr. (R-NY) Gordon Humphrey (Senator, R-NH) Bob Inglis (R-SC) Jim Kolbe (R-AZ) Steve Kuykendall...
  • GOP Legally Barred From Fighting Voter Fraud (2012 article, still relevant)

    Voting machines suspiciously defaulting to Barack Obama? Buses loaded with strangers appearing at polling stations? Even ballots turning out 100 percent for one candidate in precinct reports? In short, suspicions of vote fraud? That’s too bad, because a race-based consent decree negotiated by Democrats against the Republican National Committee a generation ago still has tied the RNC’s hands, and GOP officials could be cited for contempt – or worse – if they try to make sure American elections are clean.

    CROOKED HILLARY & THE LEFT HAVE MUCH MORE TO WORRY ABOUT THAN TRUMP: IF CROOKED HILLARY, which is a term I can use again, because Trump seems to have Rediscovered his Way, and has gone back to calling her exactly what she is . . . THINKS that she has a chance to increase her lead in the Election Campaign . . . SHE HAS ANOTHER REALLY BIG THINK COMING!
  • ‘Missing’ White Voters Could Elect Trump. But First They Need To Register.

    In 2012, President Obama won re-election by almost 5 million votes, but about 47 million eligible white voters without a college degree — including 24 million men — didn’t bother to vote. In 2016, these nonvoters are part of the demographic that is most strongly in favor of Donald Trump. If Trump rouses even a fraction of these notoriously disaffected Americans — like this grease-smudged, 61-year-old first-time voter in western Pennsylvania — he could surge to victory. There’s just one catch: If we’re on the cusp of a blue-collar Great Awakening, it’s not yet showing up in the registration data....
  • The Jews That Choose Trump

    Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. There is grumbling in progressive circles over polls showing that Orthodox Jews will vote for Trump. Among non-Orthodox Jews, Hillary beats Trump by 66 to 23 percent. Among the Orthodox, Trump beats her 66 to 22 percent. In New York, Hillary scores 61 to 19 percent among Jews, but among Orthodox Jews, Trump wins 50% of the vote while Hillary lags at 21%. It’s no wonder then that Jewish Democrats for Trump is largely targeting Orthodox Jewish voters. Why Orthodox Jews?...

    Jeb Bush in 2020, anyone? Sources close to Jeb Bush’s failed run at the 2016 presidency say the “low-energy” candidate has been back in touch with supporters. They believe he’s popping up to “feel them out” for another run and, according to at least one big contributor, they're in! “Bush has been quietly making telephone calls to his supporters, bundlers and donors, to talk about the state of the county and the economy, and the energy business, why would he do that?” asks one insider, who concludes “he's running in four years.” Before he was trounced by Donald Trump, Bush...
