“She’s a nasty woman” Trump, 10/19/16
Rushbo: “This Is What It Looks Like When a Brawler Fights Back”
“What’s different here is that Trump is fighting back, and this is what it looks like. It’s very important for people to understand, this is the first time anybody on our side’s ever fought back against any of this, and this is what it looks like. And the next sound bite, Steve Doocy, he happened to be driving around, he’s Fox & Friends, he happened to be driving around yesterday afternoon and heard it and a light went off. This is why it’s important. It doesn’t automatically occur to people that what Trump is doing is fighting back. A lot of people think Trump’s making himself look bad. Trump’s doing a response that’s not helpful and so forth, and that’s not the way to look at this.
“The Republican primary voters had grown weary of nominating and electing people that were not gonna fight back against any of this defamation and slander and libel against all of us, and Trump is, and that’s why his supporters are not abandoning him. If you’re gonna get into a battle with the establishment and you’re going to try to beat them, this is what it looks like! It looks like a brawl. It must look like a brawl because that’s what it is. The only way we have any chance to fight back against this stuff is to literally fight back against it, which is what Trump’s doing.
“You may not like the way he chooses to do it. You might think he goes out of focus now and then, but he’s still fighting back against all of it. . .”
Roger Simon, PJM: “Outrage or Genius? Trump Refuses to Accept Results of Election in Third Debate”
“Donald Trump is more similar to the Founders of our country than anyone who has run for the presidency in my lifetime.
“What?! What?! Didn’t Trump just jump an entire school of sharks in the third debate, saying he didn’t know if he would accept the outcome of the election. Isn’t he finished? Are you out of your bloody mind, Simon?
“Okay, maybe, it wouldn’t be the first time… but hear me out.
“Put briefly: If Donald Trump believes—as many of us do—that the FBI is corrupt, the Justice Department is corrupt, the other party is hiring violent paid thugs to disrupt his campaign rallies, that no one knows who is really registered to vote, that the press is stratospherically biased, and that his opponent, backed up by all those corrupt entities, should have been indicted, why would a patriot, or for that matter someone who is even routinely honest, necessarily accept the results of the election of that opponent?
“Ben Franklin wouldn’t. Thomas Jefferson wouldn’t. James Madison wouldn’t. Sam Adams wouldn’t. Of course, those guys were revolutionaries. These days we’re just, you know, “good citizens” who obey the rules and move on. With that kind of behavior in the past, our country wouldn’t even be here. But never mind.
“Not convinced? Think of the reverse. Suppose Trump had meekly said he would accept the outcome with the smirking Hillary—the woman he has called a crook and who, for all intents and purposes, is one—standing only a few feet away? Wouldn’t that, in the true sense, have invalidated everything he has been saying? #DraintheSwamp, my eye!
“Now, as we all know, Trump has been here before, back in the primaries, when he made no guarantee he would accept the nominee of his party and, as I recall, received a round of boos at that debate for his non-declaration. He later went up in the polls despite those boos.
“Will that happen this time? Not if the mainstream media has anything to do with it. . .”
Victor Davis Hanson, NRO: “The Election Year Features More Than One Presidential Race”
“Scandals, civil wars, media, money, and time are just as important as the candidates themselves.
“A presidential campaign is figuratively called a “race.” Two runners sprint toward the Election Day finish line for the prize of the presidency.
“But the 2016 presidential campaign has spawned lots of weird races.
“The first sprint is one between embarrassments and scandals.
“Will another WikiLeaks disclosure confirm that Hillary Clinton is a dishonest and conniving hypocrite? Or will yet another open-mic tape, disgruntled beauty queen, or old Howard Stern interview remind us that Donald Trump’s private life was — and perhaps still is — uncouth?
“The winner will be the candidate leaked about the least by Election Day. . .”

“A legally certified valid election” vs O’Keefe & Assange. “Will you accept the results?” “I will look at it at the time.” Trump, 10/19/16. Any other response would signal a win for the triad of Hillary, her election apparatus, and the media.
Angelo Codevilla, Claremont: “Make America Victorious Again”
“At the 2016 elections our bipartisan foreign policy class is near-unanimous, not so much behind Hillary Clinton nor even against Donald Trump. Rather, it circles its wagons around its own identities, ideas, practices, and, yes, livelihoods. Clinton represents the ruling class’s people and priorities in foreign affairs as in domestic ones, though she seems to care even less about the former’s substance. Trump, a stranger to most of the foreign policy class (though not to its current epitome, Henry Kissinger) has voiced views on foreign affairs that are within the establishment’s variances in substance if not in tone. Chastise and threaten NATO for its lack of contributions? Senate majority Leader Mike Mansfield (D-MT) offered an amendment to that effect in 1970. Cozy up to Putin? Hillary Clinton brought him a bright red “reset” button in 2009.
Nevertheless, the foreign policy class does not merely reject Trump; it detests him. Why? Because Trump, in tone even more than substance, expresses the subversive thought that U.S. foreign policy has failed to “put America first,” causing the nation to suffer defeat after defeat. Hence, the entire foreign policy class—in the bureaucracies, think tanks, academe, and the media—are a bunch of losers. Millions of Americans consider these two thoughts to be common sense. But the above-mentioned class takes the first as the root of heresies, and the second as a demagogic insult. Consequently, the 2016 election is not so much about any particular plank in any foreign policy platform. It is about who defines and what constitutes common sense.
Mark Steyn, SteynonLine: “Laws are for the Little People”
“. . . As I’ve said for years – on radio, TV and in print – for me the overriding issue in American politics is the corruption. In the Obama era, we have seen the remorseless merging of the party and the state – in the IRS, in the Justice Department and elsewhere. Whatever one feels about, say, Scandinavia, they at least come to their statism and socialism more or less honestly. Not so the United States.
“It’s bad enough that Democrats aren’t agitated about this corruption – but then it works to their advantage. Slightly more mysterious is why so many of my friends on the right aren’t incensed by it. For months, conservative commentators assured us that, when it comes to straight arrows, no arrow is straighter than FBI honcho James Comey – non-partisan, career public servant, will follow the evidence whereso’er it leads; why, “no one in law enforcement” is “more capable of navigating through a political maelstrom” and any attempts to politicize the outcome will ensure that “Comey will resign in protest, and other high-level FBI officials could follow him out the door“.
“All bollocks. Bollocks on stilts. Like everything else the Clintons touch, Comey’s FBI is hopelessly corrupted – and certainly more corrupt than J Edgar Hoover’s FBI, at least in the sense that Hoover was independent enough not to get rolled. The revelations of what happened reveal Comey to be a hack and a squish: he offered immunity to Hillary’s aides not to facilitate his investigation but to obstruct any further investigation; he allowed witnesses to Hillary’s crimes to serve as her “lawyers”; and he physically destroyed the evidence – that is, the laptops. A 6′ 8″ gummi worm would be more of a straight arrow.
Now come the latest revelations. Powerline’s John Hinderaker writes:
‘In the first page, an unidentified FBI employee says he was “pressured” to change the classification of an email to render it unclassified. This pressure came from someone within the FBI, who said he had been contacted by Undersecretary of State Patrick Kennedy, who ‘had asked his assistance in altering the email’s classification in exchange for a ‘quid pro quo.’’ The quid pro quo was that, if the FBI would say the email was unclassified, the State Department would allow the FBI to ‘place more Agents in countries where they are presently forbidden.’
“So, to add to the corrupt revenue agency and the corrupt justice department, we now have a corrupt national law enforcement agency and a corrupt foreign ministry – willing, indeed, to subordinate national security and its own diplomatic policy to the personal needs of Hillary Clinton. . .”
Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner: “Illegals seeking asylum up 900%, get cash, welfare, school loans”
“The number of illegals seeking asylum to gain easy access to the United States has jumped 900 percent in less than 10 years, greatly expanding the Immigration population receiving Social Security benefits, school loans, green cards, welfare and other taxpayer funded services, according to figures from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
“While about 8,000 mostly Latin Americans in 2009 sought asylum, the number is expected to reach 80,000 or more this year, according to a projection from the Center for Immigration Studies. . .”
Susan Crabtree, DC Examiner: “Scandals surround Clinton’s gatekeeper at State”
“Republicans aren’t surprised at all that Undersecretary of State Patrick Kennedy is in the middle of the latest Hillary Clinton email scandal, since Kennedy has been in the GOP crosshairs for the last four years for other Clinton controversies.
FBI notes released Monday indicated that Kennedy offered a trade with the FBI in order to downgrade a classified email from Clinton’s private server. But Republicans pointed out Tuesday that Kennedy was involved in two earlier scandals.
“For example, Kennedy oversaw security for U.S. diplomatic compounds around the globe leading up to the Benghazi attacks in 2012, which led to the death of four Americans, even as he managed the telecommunications operations that allowed Clinton to use a private email server for official business.
“‘Patrick Kennedy was at the heart of the State Department’s effort to stonewall’ our investigation into the Benghazi attacks, Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., told the Washington Examiner Tuesday, recalling how that GOP-led House probe uncovered Clinton’s use of a private email server. ‘[Kennedy] was also at the heart of her efforts to set up a private email system.’
“What’s so stark in the alleged quid pro quo example, Pompeo argued, is that Kennedy’s pressure appeared to be focused on leveraging his power for the sole purpose of covering up for Clinton.
‘It’s about naked power,’ Pompeo said. “You can disagree about whether something should be classified or not but … this is just something about power — I’ve got something you need. You need to put FBI agents in Iraq. It’s as egregious an example of State Department tolerating corruption as I have seen,’ he said. . .”
Frances Martel, Wikileaks: John Kerry Pressured Ecuador into Taking Julian Assange’s Internet Away”
“The organization Wikileaks is claiming that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry personally pressured the government of Ecuador to cut its founder Julian Assange’s internet access, preventing further publication of private emails from the account of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.
“On Tuesday, the Wikileaks Twitter account accused Kerry of using his position as head of the State Department to demand that the leftist South American government disconnect Assange’s internet access. Assange has lived in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for the past four years. If true, Kerry’s authority to make such a request would be dubious, as the hacked emails in question are not government correspondence, but private emails by partisan political campaign officials. . .”
Fox: “Faculty strike in 14 colleges across Pennsylvania, affecting more than 100,000 students”
“ . . .after contract negotiations between the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education and the faculty union hit an impasse.
“The Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties announced on its website that its members went on strike at 5 a.m. since no agreement could be reached. The union represents more than 5,000 faculty and coaches across the state, and a walkout would likely halt classes mid-semester.
“The union said late Tuesday night that the state had handed it its last, best offer and was done negotiating.”
Mark Levin 10/19/16
“On Wednesday’s Mark Levin show, Is it time to tank the Republican Party or has the Republican Party tanked itself? The party is at war with the base that gave it its majorities in the Congress and Senate. The modern day Republican Party has controlled house for 18 of the last 22 years but has not effectively advanced a conservative agenda and has abandoned its core principles. At the same time, Republicans consistently dominate local and state legislatures, yet the country continues to slide to the Left politically.
“After that, Wednesday was the last Presidential debate and the liberals will say that Hillary Clinton won, and the nationalist populists will say Donald Trump won. In addition, we have no idea what anyone is going to do in this debate. A point has been reached now where the debates now are all about the media and it’s clear they need to be taken out of these debates.
“Also, it‘s hard to see how Donald Trump can win this election. The Republican Party is on its heels and Trump is behind. However, some delude themselves into believing that Trump isn’t behind in this race and that there is a silent majority out there that is going to show up and vote for him. While this is possible, people should not base their hopes on this happening.
“Later, you don’t unite America by saying you are going to unite America. You unite America by unleashing the American people, speaking about the greatness of America, not smothering us, and not putting us down in international forums.”
