Medved: Trump’s Path to Victory: Tough, Not Impossible

Commentators in the mainstream media want to suggest that the presidential race is already over—with a lopsided Clinton win all but assured. If Trump supporters believe their cause is lost, they may stay home—damaging Republicans up and down the ticket.

But the truth is that Trump still has a path to Electoral College victory. The polls give disproportionate weight to states like California and New York, where Hillary is far ahead, but swing states—where it’s close—will decide the outcome.

It doesn’t matter if Clinton wins New York three to one, as long as she loses Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania. Trump must successfully defend three Romney states too where the polling is tight: North Carolina, Georgia and Arizona. But if he does that, and ekes out victories in the three big “swingers,” he’ll be president.

The outcome will depend on Trump delivering a substantive, dignified, credible performance in televised debates.

Mohler: Putting Pressure on the Holdouts

In recent days an ominous article appeared in The Atlantic by Ibby Caputo and Jon Marcus. They are arguing—essentially—that Christian institutions have foregone federal aid simply to avoid the federal regulations in terms of reporting on sexual assault and banning discrimination based on sexual orientation. But that’s not true.

It’s actually more deeply rooted in a basic principle of religious liberty and in a basic understanding that where tax dollars go, government control soon follows.

Nevertheless, the fact that within the hundreds and hundreds of higher education institutions in America there would be a handful of holdouts against the moral revolution is untenable, unthinkable and unacceptable to the secular left. And we now see exactly what their agenda looks like.

The schools that would stand against the tide, and which stand on principle and conviction, are now to be effectively “outed” by the secular left and held up for scandal.

THR 8/13/16: Hillary Clinton’s Leftwing SCOTUS and John Kerry’s Deceit

Opioids Tariffs

Hugh Hewitt talks with Donald Trump about his chances of winning the election 90 days out from Election Day. Dennis Prager compares Trump’s likely policy positions and Hillary’s likely policy positions side by side.

White House Press Secretary Compared Critics Of The Iran Deal To The Mullahs

In the wake of the 1.7 billion dollar U.S. payment to Iran, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest compared critics of President Obama’s Iran Deal to the Iranian mullahs. Congressman Mike Pompeo asserts that this is simply an effort to distract from the fact that this was a ransom payment. Join Hugh Hewitt’s premium content website at Hughniverse.com.

Chen: Executive Overreach

Our founders created a system of government with careful checks and balances between its three branches.  But President Obama has stampeded over this careful design with his unilateral use of executive power.

The president’s defenders argue that he hasn’t used the executive order any more than his predecessors. But the “executive order” is just one way the president can act unilaterally. President Obama has taken various forms of executive action more broadly understood—and exercised it in unprecedented ways—to achieve his aims.

All told, President Obama has hundreds of instances of executive action through which he’s made some very big changes:

•    He’s given the EPA broad authority to regulate carbon emitted by power plants,
•    delayed the implementation of parts of Obamacare,
•    and allowed states to change the work requirements put in place by the landmark welfare reform law.

We urgently need to restore the careful balance of power our founders crafted.

But—in this presidential cycle—there’s little evidence either major party candidate is prepared to perform this important task.

Mohler: It Won’t Stop in California

There are many religious liberty issues that are looming on the horizon, but none more urgent than what’s going on in California. And that has to do with what is known as Senate Bill 1146.

The bill raises a number of problems, namely: It would prevent Christian colleges and universities from hiring Christian faculty and staff, students could lose their government financial aid, and students and alumni could sue religious institutions for discrimination over something as simple as a required chapel attendance.

But the biggest issue here has to do with the fact that this would mean the end to any comprehensive Christian worldview education. The bill only provides exemptions for institutions and seminaries for the training of ministers directly. That means that, for example, history could no longer be taught entirely from a Christian perspective.

It’s now abundantly clear that Senate Bill 1146 represents an existential threat to Christian higher education, starting in that state but certainly not stopping there.
