Is Romney Running?, Trump Stands With Israel, Second Amendment At Risk

by Gary Bauer, Contributing Author: Is Romney Running?
There is a big meeting taking place in Salt Lake City this weekend. It is being billed in some articles as Mitt Romney convening a #NeverTrump summit, perhaps to plan his own campaign this year.

Undoubtedly, some there will be upset that Trump is the GOP nominee. But the meeting is, in fact, the fourth annual "Experts and Enthusiasts" or E2 Summit.

Organizers of the E2 event say its purpose is to strategize about the future and what the GOP stands for. I have to point out the obvious: The previous three meetings have to be described, sadly, as failures. Allow me to point out a few examples.
  • There is no evidence that any kind of consensus emerged from the previous meetings about what the party's most loyal members and participants believed. If the previous meetings had been successful, Donald Trump would not have been the only candidate warning that trade deals were gutting Middle America.  By the way Speaker Ryan released another policy paper this week calling for more trade deals.
  • If previous meetings had been successful, we wouldn't have heard virtually every GOP commentator saying over the past year, "I don't get it. Where did all this anger come from among the people voting for Trump?"  Virtually every exit poll showed huge majorities of self-identified Republicans saying they felt "betrayed" by the Republican Party, yet the leadership appeared utterly clueless.
  • Apparently, nobody in the previous meetings realized that many Americans not only want the Republican Party to say it is going to secure the border, but they actually want to secure the border. Simply saying it doesn't keep illegal immigrants out. You actually have to secure the border with a real physical barrier.
  • Finally, there might have been more value from the previous meetings if someone had realized that many Americans were having second thoughts about record levels of Muslim immigration -- especially while Islamists quoting the Koran were killing our sons and daughters in Afghanistan and Iraq and in Boston, New York City and San Bernardino.
That concern is not a sign of bigotry but a natural instinct for self-preservation. While clueless elites ask what is wrong with us, the rest of America is asking what is wrong with them!

But hope springs eternal. Perhaps just maybe the folks huddled at this weekend's confab will actually do a little soul searching. And with each fine meal they enjoy, I recommend a generous serving of humble pie.

Trump Stands With Israel
Donald Trump issued an excellent statement yesterday condemning the terrorist attack in Tel Aviv. Not only did Trump condemn the violence, but he expressed a clear understanding of its root causes. Consider this excerpt:
"The American people stand strong with the people of Israel, who have suffered far too long from terrorism. Israel's security is a matter of paramount importance to me and the American people.

"We understand all too well the unspeakable horror that terrorism unleashes. To address it . . . we must recognize the parallel horror of the culture of religious hatred that permeates many Palestinian quarters. From schools that indoctrinate toddlers to grow up to kill Israelis to the daily menu of hate that spews forth from various 'news organizations,' change is long overdue in the Palestinian territories."

Second Amendment At Risk
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals struck a major blow against the Second Amendment this week. In an opinion written by a Clinton appointee, the court declared, "We hold that the Second Amendment does not preserve or protect a right of a member of the general public to carry concealed firearms in public."

This will no doubt be quite a shock to pro-Second Amendment residents in the states covered by the 9th Circuit, which includes Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon and Washington.

The 9th Circuit looks like what every court in America will look like if the left gets control. That's what is at stake this November. By the way, at least one member of the Democrat Platform Committee doesn't believe anyone should be allowed to own a gun. And Hillary Clinton can't say with certainty what the Second Amendment means.

This opinion will be appealed. That means the issue will be decided by the Supreme Court, which is currently split 4-to-4 on whether the Second Amendment provides for an individual right to own a firearm. So the stage has been set for the next president to appoint the justice who will decide the fate of the Second Amendment in America.
