Question?

  • Do you like ObamaCare? Yes or No
  • Do you think we need more government regulations? Yes or No
  • Do you think the Dodd-Frank financial rules are good? Yes or No
  • Do you want MoveOn.org, Teachers Unions, and the AFL/CIO helping to vet and select the next Presidential cabinet? Yes or No

If you answered “No” to any of the above questions, vote against Hillary Clinton and for Donald Trump.

Here’s why:

Progressives Want Say on Filling Administration Posts If Hillary Clinton Wins

Groups vow to block any candidates they consider too close to industry or Wall Street

Progressive groups and labor unions are assembling a list of vetted candidates for top posts in a potential Clinton administration, vowing at the same time to block any they consider too close to industry or Wall Street.

The campaign sets the stage for a potentially bitter battle among factions of the Democratic Party as allies of Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren try to pull the party to the left before and after the November election.

“When we talk about personnel, we don’t mean advisers who just pay lip service to Hillary’s bold agenda, coupled with a sigh, a knowing glance, and the twiddling of thumbs until it’s time for the next swing through the revolving door, serving government and then going back to the very same industries they regulate,” Mrs. Warren said Wednesday in a speech at the Center for American Progress Action Fund.

“We don’t need Citigroup or Morgan Stanley or BlackRock getting to choose who runs the economy in this country so that they can capture our government,” she said.

The strategy builds on efforts by Mrs. Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat, and other progressives to block Obama administration nominees seen as too close to big business. The group claimed a win in 2015 when its opposition to Antonio Weiss because of his Wall Street ties led him to withdraw from consideration for a key Treasury Department post.

The position was never filled and Mr. Weiss has served as a counselor to the Treasury secretary. Continue reading

Many view this presidential election as a contest of manners. The media spends its time debating the relative evils of statements made by Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. What’s worse: saying a Gold Star mother “maybe…wasn’t allowed to have anything to say…it looked like she had nothing to say,” or saying that “you could put half of Trump’s supporters into … the basket of deplorables”?

Regardless of your answer, this election is about more than manners or a battle of personalities. The stakes go far beyond that. Much depends on whether the next president will do the following three things.

1. Preserve the Constitution

The Obama years have not been good for the separation of powers or for rule of law. At a spring 2011 Univision town hall, President Obama was pressured by a portion of his base to stop the deportation of young illegals via executive order. In response, Obama provided a helpful civics lesson:

“With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case, because there are laws on the books … Congress passes the law. The executive branch’s job is to enforce and implement those laws … There are enough laws on the books by Congress that are very clear in terms of how we have to enforce our immigration system that for me to simply, through executive order, ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as president.”

About a year later, Obama chose to violate Congress’s “very clear” laws, chose not to “enforce and implement” those laws, and chose instead to undertake actions that did “not conform with” his “appropriate role as president.” His administration announced that it would no longer deport most illegals under the age of 30 who had entered the U.S. before adulthood. Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney said almost nothing in response. Continue reading

voter-id

A Gallup Poll published last month found that 95% of Republicans, 83% of independents and 63% of Democrats support a photo ID requirement for voting. So do 81% of whites and 77% of non-whites. Moreover, given that the black voter turnout rate in 2012 exceeded white turnout—including in those states with the strictest voter ID requirements—the GOP seems to be doing a very poor job of suppressing the black vote, if that is the objective.

How much to buy an ambassadorship? The answer is in the latest hacked messages.

kim-strassel-articleIf the 2016 election is remembered for anything beyond its flawed candidates, it will be recalled as the year of the Democratic email dump. Or rather, the year that the voting public got an unvarnished view of the disturbing—nay, deplorable—inner workings of the highest echelons of the Democratic Party.

What makes the continuing flood of emails instructive is that nobody was ever meant to see these documents. Hillary Clinton set up a private server to shield her communications as secretary of state from the public. She gave top aide Huma Abedin an account on that server. She never envisioned that an FBI investigation and lawsuits would drag her conversations into the light.

The Democratic National Committee and Colin Powell (an honorary Democrat) likewise believed their correspondence secure. But both were successfully targeted by hackers, who released the latest round of enlightening emails this week. Continue reading
