Hugh Hewitt: Trump’s Biggest Bet

With just days now before Election Day, President Trump has been making his biggest bet: that the portion of the American electorate living between the coasts knows what is in its own best interest.

He thinks these Americans know that their interests—economic, cultural, familial—diverge sharply from the coastal elites.

Trump has taken up the case for folks between the coasts and states at the margin. He’s counting especially on voters in Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin—and turnout is going to be enormous.

The turnout issue means that—for first time since I started watching politics closely—a blowout in either direction is genuinely possible.

I hope you’ve made your plans to vote—and make sure to remind those in your world to get out and vote.

America is at a crossroads—with two starkly different visions for the future of the nation we love.

Whatever the result: Don’t regret not doing your part.

Michael Medved: The Key Three Will Determine Everything

Democrats won’t repeat their huge mistake of 2016—focusing on the popular vote and national polling while ignoring crucial mechanics of the Electoral College.

To unseat Trump, the Democrats must flip at least three of the nine crucial swing states Trump won last time. Now that won’t be easy, with perennial battlegrounds Ohio and Florida trending in a strongly Republican direction.

Instead, Democrats will concentrate on three heartland pick-ups: Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin.

In all three states, Republicans fared very badly in 2018, losing Senate and governor’s races. Trump needs to hold just one of these three keystones and he’ll win: even if Democrats take both Michigan and Pennsylvania—the two larger prizes of the “key three”—Trump still gets 270 and wins the presidency by a single electoral vote.

Look for another close, fierce, fight to the finish!

Jerry Bowyer: Fruits of the Protests After Shooting in Florida

In the wake of the horrific school shooting in Florida, well organized activists have embarked on a strategy of attacks against the NRA. Some have attempted to brand the NRA as a terrorist organization, and companies have been bullied into dropping businesses ties with it. It hasn’t worked. In fact, analysis by Bowyer research published recently on Townhall Finance shows that on-line inquiries about membership in the NRA reached the highest levels ever recorded.

In other words, large numbers of Americans saw these attacks and instead of running away from the NRA, started researching how they can sign up! And those companies which ended business relations with NRA have suffered sharp declines in public favorability.

Apparently Americans like the whole Bill of Rights despite political attacks on parts of it.

Michael Medved: Destroying a Gun Won’t Protect a Child

Opioid

When I was a kid, my late mother used to urge her four boys to consume whatever unappetizing vegetables we left on our plates by reminding us that, “There are starving kids in India.”

Well, I recalled those long-ago arguments when watching a well-intentioned but illogical anti-gun video that’s gone viral to millions. In it, New Yorker Scott Pappalardo reacts to Parkland by cutting his AR-15 in half with a power saw. “I’m gonna make sure this gun is never gonna take someone’s life,” he says to the camera.

But destroying weapons owned by sane, responsible citizens does nothing to stop evil maniacs from using their weapons for mayhem.  Dismantling America’s nukes won’t magically solve the threat from North Korea.

With 10 million AR15’s in private hands, destroying a single gun not only provides no solution, but utterly mis-defines the problem—and won’t feed starving kids, either.
