Why Evangelicals Are Sticking

American Thinker, by Trevor Thomas    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 9/12/2017 3:21:43     Post Reply
The Never-Trumpers of every stripe still don’t get it. Ten months after his historic defeat of Hillary Clinton, those opposed to Donald Trump -- whether from the political right, left, or middle -- have yet to grasp why so many Americans -- especially evangelical Americans -- have embraced, or at least tolerate, the politics of the Man from Manhattan. As my wife (and chief editor) pointed out when I began this piece, “It’s really a no-brainer. There was no other option.” But nevertheless, to those dulled by their disdain for Mr. Trump, let me explain again our continued support for

Defense Of Her ‘Deplorables’ Comment

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton played fast and loose with the facts on Sunday in an attempt to defend her infamous “deplorables” remark. “You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the ‘basket of deplorables.’ Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it,” Clinton said at a fundraiser in New York last September. “And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.” Clinton attempted to spin that remark — which proved to be one of the pivotal moments of the 2016 campaign

Florida police are shaming ‘Hurricane Irma looters’ on social media. Not only do they deserve shame, but hefty prison sentences, if found guilty.

A Maryland county judge has ordered the state bar to investigate three lawyers accused of deleting thousands of Hillary Clinton´s emails. Circuit Judge Paul F. Harris Jr. ruled Monday that the Attorney Grievance Commission and Office of Bar Counsel Maryland Office of Bar Counsel must look into complaints against Cheryl Mills, Heather Samuelson and David E. Kendall, citing "allegations of destroying evidence,” according to the Washington Times. The ruling came after Ty Clevenger, an attorney in New York City, filed the complaint.

Sen.

CIA Director Mike Pompeo said Monday that senior Al-Qaeda leaders should "count" their days because the U.S. intelligence community is narrowing in on them. Pompeo appeared on Fox News, where host Bret Baier asked the director to analyze the state of international terrorism 16 years after 9/11. "So the Al-Qaeda was really sixteen years ago the big player," Baier said. "Now it seems like these splinter groups have multiplied and expanded around the globe." Pompeo agreed, saying that he never wants to underestimate Al-Qaeda because there are still senior leaders from over a decade ago still alive. "Hunting those senior leaders

SHANKSVILLE, Pa.- Vice President Mike Pence told relatives and friends of the victims of United Flight 93 attending the 16th anniversary ceremony Monday in Pennsylvania that the passengers might well have saved his life. The somber service began at 9:45 a.m., the time that federal investigators determined passengers decided to revolt against their four al-Qaida hijackers, who ended up crashing the plane in a field 60 miles (100 kilometers) southeast of Pittsburgh. The Republican said he was in Washington as a member of Congress on 9/11, and learned that the Capitol was a possible target of the hijacked plane, which

Though the ominous feeling of concern for those in the path of Hurricane Irma in Florida hung heavy in the air, the show must go on. Miss America 2018 on ABC aired September 10th and throughout the show, donations for hurricane relief were solicited for those affected in both Texas and Florida. Never fear, though. Politics dominated the final question competition and yes, it was all about President Trump.

In February, 2002, roughly five months after the searing tragedy of the 9/11/2001 attacks, Budweiser, a subsidiary of Anheuser-Busch, released a poignant, moving commercial honoring the fallen by having the company’s famed Clydesdale bow in front of the skyline of New York. If you missed the commercial, it wouldn’t be surprising; it only aired once, and that was during Super Bowl XXXVI on February 3, 2002. The creative team from Anheuser-Busch had their work cut out for them; they had to get approval from members of Congress, the advertising community and from New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Washington - Hillary Clinton on Sunday called Donald Trump’s inaugural speech as president “a cry from the white nationalist gut”. Clinton was speaking in her first televised interview since her stunning defeat in the election in November, two days ahead of the publication of What Happened, her book about her defeat. (Snip) During the campaign, in a moment widely criticized and weaponised by the Trump campaign, Clinton memorably referred to half of Trump’s supporters as a “basket of deplorables”. She expressed regret at the time. On Sunday, Clinton was unapologetic for the context of her remarks and said Trump’s base

Hillary Clinton was so confident of victory last year that she bought a second house next to her residence in Chappaqua, New York, to accommodate White House staff during presidential retreats there. "I thought I was going to win," she said. The New York Post reported last year on the Clintons paying $1.16 million for the three-bedroom, ranch-style home next to their house in Chappaqua. The newspaper´s source said at the time it was thought to be a weekend retreat for their daughter Chelsea´s family. In an interview from her home on the CBS program "Sunday Morning" delving into her

Two huge booksellers, Amazon and Walmart, have already cut the price of Hillary Rodham Clinton´s 2016 tell-all by 40 percent -- and it isn´t even available yet. Set to be released Tuesday, both have priced "What Happened?" at $17.99. Publisher Simon and Schuster set a price of $30. Much of what´s in her book has already been reported on, thanks to leaked copies of the Democratic presidential candidate´s latest work. The price cut, however, has likely helped to boost sales. It is No. 1 on Amazon.

Who would ever dream of handing political leadership to someone whose crowning career achievement was a high-paying no-show job? As its next presidential candidate, is Michelle Obama the best the Democrats can come up with? That´s the view of pollster Douglas Schoen, who thinks they don´t stand a chance otherwise. In a piece for The Hill, he writes: As I’ve said before, the Democrats need an alternative plan to rebuild and unite the party if they have any hope in winning back seats in Congress in the 2018 midterms, nonetheless the White House in 2020. This alternative plan requires a new, united

The Rams and 49ers each opened their season at home Sunday, and both teams had to start their games with lots of empty seats in the stadium. The Rams are hosting the the Colts, but it seems like the Los Angeles fans are not that concerned about being there to see it in person.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is reportedly considering a Senate run in Utah if longtime Sen. Orrin Hatch retires. UtahPolicy.com reports that sources close to Mr. Romney say he’s making preparations to run, but some say Mr. Hatch likely won’t make a decision on whether he’ll run for another term until the end of the year. It would be Mr. Hatch’s eight term in office if he decides to run again. Mr. Hatch has said in the past that he’d be willing to step aside if someone like Mr. Romney wanted to run for the seat. Mr. Romney was the GOP presidential nominee in the 2012 elections, but lost to former President Barack Obama,

Hillary Clinton’s latest book “What Happened” and her ensuing book tour are the latest examples of the former presidential candidate creating fresh tensions within the Democratic Party. What happened is not terribly complicated: Clinton lost the election to Donald Trump and weakened the Democratic Party in the process. In her book, Secretary Clinton blames her loss on the Russians, former FBI Director James Comey and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), among others, yet the only person she does not seem to blame is herself. Clinton continues to take the focus away from the party and
