Medved: Fourth Party Prospects for Victory

Third party candidacies are generally a waste of time, but this year a fourth party candidacy could capture the White House.

Here’s how it might work: with Democrats deeply divided, the Bernie brigades might walk out of the convention, with Senator Sanders or someone else from his camp running as the Green Party nominee. That would create an opening for an independent conservative candidate—like Senator Ben Sasse, or Condoleezza Rice, or Mitt Romney. With four November contenders each likely to draw at least 20% of the popular vote, a candidate could win with just 30%. And with four candidates sharing debate stages, and each carrying a few states, chances are good that there’d be no Electoral College majority—sending the decision to the House of Representatives, where mainstream conservatives predominate.

Best of all, with four candidates, voters could choose a leader they like, rather than voting for Trump just out of hatred for Clinton, or backing Clinton because of fear of Trump.

Medved: An Empty Museum

Leaders of the Palestinian Authority recently dedicated the Palestinian Museum: a $24 million building meant as “a space to celebrate and redefine Palestinian art, history and culture.” The only problem: the sprawling museum opened with no exhibitions at all—highlighting the troubled nature of Palestinian identity.

What is “Palestinian art, history and culture”?

Who are the most famous Palestinian artists or rulers over the centuries?

Actually, there are virtually none—because Arab residents of the region never identified themselves as distinctly Palestinian until the 1960’s.

Far from displacing an indigenous population, Jewish efforts at return and rebuilding spurred growth in local Arab populations. The empty museum communicates the synthetic, empty nature of Palestinian nationalism and extremism.

Mitch McConnell: I’m Not Worried About Donald Trump. I’m Worried About Hillary Clinton.

Hugh Hewitt interviewed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and asked him about his views about Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. Majority Leader McConnell explained his position: “We ought to be worried about four more years just like the last eight and that’s what we get with Hillary Clinton … The Supreme Court is the biggest thing that the next president will be dealing with … That issue alone will define much of what America is like for the next generation. That issue alone is enough to convince me to support Donald Trump.” For the complete interview and transcript, visit HughHewitt.com. Join Hugh Hewitt’s premium content website at Hughniverse.com.

Mohler: So Much for the End of Imperialism

President Obama has long been understood by his biography and by his approach to foreign policy to oppose the lingering aspects of empire, of imperialism.

How do we then explain how the President acts as if America is an imperial power ordering the world to follow our imperial edicts when it comes to this sexual and moral revolution?

For example, the people of the Dominican Republic have complained about the fact that the President sent an openly gay ambassador with his husband to that predominantly Catholic nation.

We see a similar dynamic in Asia, revealed in a recent headline from the New York Times: “U.S. Diplomat’s Same-Sex Marriage Causes Stir in China.”

All of this, we need to note, is of a piece. It is all consistent with how the Obama administration has declared the fact that it will make LGBT issues a centerpiece of American foreign policy.

That means that the United States is using its considerable power in order to further the LGBT revolution all over the world.

So much for the end of imperialism.
