THOMAS SOWELL — A year ago, in August 2015, this column called "The Donald" the Democrats' Trump card. It is hard to imagine any other Republican candidate who could rescue a thoroughly discredited Hillary Clinton from a devastating defeat in this year's election.... (more)

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST — The question, essentially raised in our last column, is: Are the Clintons marching toward ultimate earthly power in a virtual locking of arms with Russia's Vladimir Putin? It doesn't matter whether, as some have charged, the former Soviet KGB operative is "Stalin II," hell-bent on reviving the Cold War; the man's actions, almost from Day 1 of his regime, strongly indicate that he intends -- one way or another -- to take us down....

THE ATLANTIC — That House Speaker Paul Ryan easily won his congressional primary on Tuesday, by a nearly 70-point margin, should not have surprised anyone. Yet the political world was watching the result on tenterhooks, waiting for a surprise that never came. The fact that there was no upset was, in this season of political surprises, news of its own sort: a signal that perhaps the Trumpist ideology that has disrupted the Republican Party this year doesn't work for anyone not named Donald Trump, and may not outlast him as a force in the GOP....

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY — I don't want to be a broken record on the subject of President Obama's appalling $400 million cash payment to Iran. I am at a loss, however, to understand how the press -- and not just the pro-Obama mainstream media -- continues to accept at face value President Obama's preposterous claim that the transaction had to be structured the way it was (U.S. dollars converted to foreign currency and shipped to Tehran) because the law forbids transferring U.S. dollars to Iran....
