Hewitt: A Divisive Election Cycle

Pepperdine California Democratic Party

It’s been a divisive election cycle.

But whoever wins between Mr.  Trump and Secretary Clinton, it will be vital—absolutely vital—that the new president face a Senate led by the able and hard-working Mitch McConnell.

McConnell is not on the ballot in Kentucky this year, but his all-important majority leader status is dependent on some “must-win” races:

•    In New Hampshire for incumbent and defense expert Kelly Ayotte;
•    In Pennsylvania for incumbent Pat Toomey. He’s perhaps the hardest-working senator and a defender of core conservative principles, including religious liberty.
•    And in Nevada for Joe Heck. Nevada has an open seat created by the retirement of Harry Reid. Current Congressman Heck is a doctor, a general, supremely qualified and would be a crucial pickup for the GOP.

We urge you to support Republicans.

Those of you looking to invest wisely some contributions in key races should study closely the appeals of Ayotte and Toomey and Heck.

These three matter to all Americans … including you.

Chen: Consequential Choices for U.S. Congress

Americans have been bombarded with news about this year’s presidential election. And with all of the scandal and all of the attention paid to the contest between Clinton and Trump, it’s easy to forget that there are other consequential choices we will make on November 8.

Indeed, voters should not overlook elections for U.S. Congress.  Whether Clinton or Trump is elected, the House and Senate will play an important role in checking the presidency.

Hillary Clinton has expressed an interest in exercising the power of the presidency broadly and expansively to achieve her liberal policy goals. Without Republican majorities in the House and Senate, a President Clinton would not only be able to use executive action to get her way—but she’d also have a willing Congress to help her press her agenda.

Even if you’re discouraged by our choices for president, as I am, it’s important to go to the polls on November 8 and vote for members of Congress who believe in limited government, individual responsibility, and the promotion of freedom.

Elder: Where Did The Chanting Go?

The same people who—with no evidence—chanted “Bush Lied, People Died” are now ignoring clear evidence of Hillary Clinton’s violation of the Espionage Act which imperiled national security.

In George W. Bush’s case, there was zero evidence of a lie, according to the Robb-Silverman Commission’s investigation.

In Clinton’s case, her violation of the Espionage Act allowed hostile actors to gain access to very sensitive, highly classified information, period.

Now although no criminal prosecution occurred, FBI Director James Comey testified that Secretary Clinton and her colleagues, “were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.”

In her quarter century on the national stage, Mrs. Clinton has left a trail of lies and deception: Whitewater, Travelgate, Servergate and the now the Clinton Foundation.

People should be chanting, “Hillary Lies—Nobody Cares”!

Gallagher: A Strange Presidential Race

Tariffs

If you question whether 2016 is a strange Presidential race, consider this.

Hillary Clinton has argued that she’s the more dignified choice for President. Seriously? Donald Trump has been exposed in a number of rude and indefensible moments. But the American people should not be naïve about the shamelessly scandalous Hillary.

In this campaign season alone, the Democrat’s Presidential nominee has skated scott-free on the private email scandal, thanks to a complicit FBI director. She’s never satisfactorily answered for the many miscalculations leading to four American deaths in Benghazi.

Then there’s the Wikileaks.

I could go on and on…

You know, for the right price, I’ll bet I could book that night in the Lincoln bedroom, if the Clintons return to the White House.

I know that Donald Trump hasn’t impressed with his subtlety or restraint this election season, but the suggestion that Hillary possesses the dignity necessary to occupy the Oval Office strikes me as positively surreal.

Mohler: A Revealing Moment

In the wake of the 3rd presidential debate, The New York Times reported, “Mrs. Clinton won a new round of approval … with her defense of even the late-term procedure denounced by its critics as partial-birth abortion.”

The paper also decried Donald Trump’s description of partial birth abortion, calling it “scare rhetoric.” The truth is that if there were any honest description of what takes place not only in a late-term abortion but in any abortion, it would be dismissed as scare rhetoric, precisely because it is so grotesque.

The Left also alleges that late-term abortion almost never happens. The Guttmacher Institute says “1.3 percent of abortions in the United States occur at 21 weeks of pregnancy or later.” When you consider that more than 1 million abortions were performed in America last year, 1.3 percent is indeed over 10,000 abortions.

Over 10,000 late term abortions per year doesn’t sound rare. It sounds horrifying.

Prager: Hillary’s Frightening Speech

Conservatives who are inclined to sit out this election should consider what America will look like if Hillary Clinton wins.

Thanks to Bernie Sanders, the Democratic Party is now effectively socialist.

If Clinton wins, government will tamper with how much corporations can pay.  She said—and I quote: “If you believe that companies should share profits with their workers, not paid executive bonuses, join us.”

Unconstitutional, you say? Remember: Her judicial appointees will not be protectors of the Constitution.

Just before Barack Obama became president, he said, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”

In fact: He has done so. And Clinton will continue this fundamental transformation.

Clinton later said: “We’ll build a path to citizenship for millions of immigrants.” She’s talking about some 10 million who entered the country illegally. The result? Our borders will mean nothing.

A President Hillary Clinton will finish the American transformation … perhaps forever.

Chen: The Good Senator From Ohio

At a time when it’s easy to be cynical about our politics and politicians, it’s good to know that there are honorable men and women who deserve our support.

United States Senator Rob Portman of Ohio is just one of those people.

Rob is a commonsense conservative who has served the people of the Buckeye State effectively and honorably. He’s now seeking reelection to the United States Senate—and Ohio voters should send him back to Washington to continue the important work he’s doing in leading the fight for lower taxes, fiscal responsibility and an end to drug addiction.

I’ve known and worked with Rob Portman for several years.  He’s a man of high character, great intellect, and a deep sense of duty. Rob is committed to what’s right for the people of Ohio and our nation.

Take it from me: Ohio is fortunate to have Rob Portman as a U.S. Senator.

All Americans benefit from his voice as part of the GOP majority in the U.S. Senate.
