Good News, GOP Angst, Behind The President, The Future

by Gary Bauer, Contributing AuthorGood News - The media are working overtime to demoralize conservatives and convince us all that Hillary has already won. DON'T BELIEVE IT! Not every poll is predicting a Clinton coronation.
  • The Los Angeles Times daily tracking poll has Trump up 45% to 44%.
  • Rasmussen has Trump up 43% to 41%.
  • And the Investor's Business Daily poll -- the most accurate poll in the past three election cycles -- has Trump leading 41% to 40%.
My friends, we can win!

More importantly, we MUST win.

GOP Angst? Democrats and some Republicans continue piling on Donald Trump because he refused Wednesday night to give up his right to question election irregularities.

For months now, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have been constantly undermining confidence in our democracy, routinely suggesting that Russia might hack polling places and saying that Wikileaks is a Russian plot to get Trump elected.

Every Republican leader should be asking the obvious questions: Why would Russia be in favor of the candidate who wants to make America great again and who is promising a major military buildup? Why wouldn't Putin want Obama's third term?

Hillary brags about the fact that she opened the door to Iran, Russia's ally in the Middle East. Together, Iran and Russia are marching toward dominance in the region. Under Obama, Putin seized Crimea. So much for Hillary's "reset."

Given all that Obama and Hillary have said about Russia trying to steal the election, what if there is a shocking result on Election Day? What if Trump wins?

Will Obama and Clinton pack their bags and leave town quietly? I doubt it. I suspect that the left, aided by the media complex, will attempt to delegitimize Trump by suggesting Russia stole the election for him.

To this day, the left refuses to concede that George W. Bush beat Al Gore. Hillary Clinton has said that Bush was "selected, not elected," referring to the Bush v. Gore Supreme Court decision.

John Kerry still thinks the 2004 election was rigged against him.

Here's the latest: Obama officials are now claiming that Russian hackers might try to fake fraud just to sow confusion. Really? So if elections officials see what looks like fraud, what are they supposed to do? Assume it is Russian hacking and ignore it?

I understand why the left distorts a perfectly legitimate statement by Donald Trump. Their demand that he preemptively surrender is just more evidence that the left expects Republicans to lose gracefully. What I don't understand is why some Republicans are falling for this nonsense.

Today's Washington Post has this headline: "Trump's Refusal To Honor Outcome Swells GOP Angst."

One of the factors that contributed to Donald Trump's candidacy is that too many in the GOP suffer angst if they have to actually defend the values of the people who elected them.

GOP leaders should be feeling angst at the news that left-wing activists are stoking political violence against conservatives.

They should feel angst that a top Clinton operative is pushing voter fraud.

They should feel angst that a top Clinton ally in the media was feeding Hillary questions in advance.

They should feel angst about zombie voters.

The Republican Party and the entire conservative movement have been deeply concerned about cheating for decades. That is why GOP states have passed voter ID laws.

The American people are with us. They know there is a problem and they support our solutions.

Lose the angst and find some fight!

Behind The President - As I mentioned yesterday, when you vote for president you are also picking thousands of political appointees, hundreds of judges and members of numerous boards and commissions.

Remind friends that when you vote for Trump, you are voting for someone like Justice Scalia to fill a Supreme Court vacancy. When you vote for Clinton or vote third party, you are voting for someone like Ginsburg or Sotomayor.

You are also voting for the appointment of people like Lois Lerner at the IRS to continue to harass conservatives. Or you are voting for a reformer like Steve Forbes who could clean it out.

You are voting for someone like Eric Holder or Loretta Lynch to be attorney general. Or someone like my friend Ed Meese or Rep. Trey Gowdy.

Under Hillary Clinton, the secretary of Health and Human Services, who oversees Obamacare, will use the power of that massive bureaucracy to promote abortion on demand and make you pay for it. Under Donald Trump, we could have someone like pro-life retiring Senator Dan Coats of Indiana, a man of strong faith. Or even Dr. Ben Carson.

Imagine the Pentagon under Hillary Clinton. Already, it is wasting precious time and money promoting transgenderism and fighting climate change. We need leadership that is prepared to defeat our enemies and defend our interests around the world. Imagine Secretary of Defense Rick Santorum.

Do you want four more years of John Kerry as Secretary of State? Or would you prefer John Bolton?

Hillary Clinton's Education Department will continue Obama's radical efforts to allow boys into girls' bathrooms and locker rooms. It might even try to shut down homeschooling too. Now imagine Newt Gingrich, who has a Ph.D. in history, as secretary of education.

Some may say, "You have no idea what kind of people Trump will appoint." Yes we do. The first person he appointed was one of us -- Mike Pence.

Moreover, Trump, wisely and very early on, went to conservative groups in Washington and asked for help in identifying the right people. At the same time, left-wing pro-abortion, pro-Islamic groups are helping Hillary Clinton fill these positions.

Christian voters must have the wisdom to consider the reality of their vote and all its implications day after day for the next four to eight years. After eight years of decline and eroding religious liberty, how much more do you think we can endure? We MUST change course!

As someone whose first choice did not win the primary, I have no problem owning Trump's actions if he is elected. With Mike Pence at his side, I am confident he will make good decisions.

Those whose actions increase the chances of Hillary Clinton being elected will also own what she does.

The Future - Bloomberg had a fascinating poll that asked Democrats and Republicans who they would look to for leadership after the election. Among Democrats, the results were:Hillary Clinton 32%
Bernie Sanders 31%
Elizabeth Warren 23%
Tim Kaine 6%.
That Sanders and Warren command a majority shows you just how far left their party has moved.

On GOP side results were:Mike Pence 27%
Donald Trump 24%
Ted Cruz 19%
Paul Ryan 15%
John Kasich 10%.
I'm struck by the fact 70% of Republicans express support for a populist, conservative, Reaganesque vision, while the establishment wing of the party gets 25% support.
