ALAN KEYES This past July, I read an article by Lisa Bloom entitled "Why the New Child Rape Case Filed Against Trump Should Not Be Ignored." It came to my mind recently when I saw the headline "Woman Claiming Trump Rape at 13 Releases video." I watched the video and read the linked Independent Journal Review article by Kayla Brandon, reporting its release.... (more)

JOHN FUND If you think our marathon election season will end on Tuesday, you might be wrong. "Margin of litigation" is a phrase we might hear a lot after Tuesday if the presidential election is close in one or more states. It refers to the number of votes by which a candidate must win in order to prevent litigation -- and delays -- before a result is final. Both parties will have armies of lawyers deployed on Election Night looking for irregularities and opportunities to go to court.... (more)

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER Rule of thumb for a presidential campaign where the two candidates have the highest unfavorable ratings in the history of polling: If you're the center of attention, you're losing. As Election Day approaches, Hillary Clinton cannot shake the spotlight. She is still ahead in the polls, but you know she's slipping when she shows up at a Florida campaign event with a week to go accompanied by the former Miss Universe, Alicia Machado.... (more)

ELIANA JOHNSON In 1968, Vice President Hubert Humphrey became the Democratic presidential nominee without winning a single primary, when Party delegates snatched the nomination from Minnesota's anti-war senator, Eugene McCarthy, whom they considered a sure loser in a general election against Richard Nixon. The resulting riots, and Nixon's subsequent landslide victory in the electoral college, prompted Democrats to enact a series of reforms that diminished both parties' roles in the nominating process....

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY On Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal's Devlin Barrett published another eye-opening report about the FBI's Clinton Foundation investigation. It elaborates on the pitched battle between FBI agents who believe they are building a strong case and Justice Department prosecutors who have thrown cold water on it, erecting roadblocks that have made the agents' work much more difficult....

WES VERNON With all the e-mails, leaked documents, and illegalities of many kinds showering down on Americans in the final stretch of arguably the most upside down presidential election in America's history, it is not surprising that we are becoming acquainted with more characters occupying the "woodwork" of the Clinton Crime Family....

TIMOTHY P. CARNEY It was a different guy in each neighborhood, but there was always that guy. He would knock on our door, and offer to do odd jobs for money. Sometimes he would borrow money. Often he wouldn't do the work, and he'd offer some excuse. Whatever he told you, you simply knew you couldn't trust him -- and everyone around him knew that he was up to something.... (more)

CLIFF KINCAID One of the biggest jokes of the presidential campaign is that the WikiLeaks disclosures prove that Vladimir Putin favors Donald J. Trump for U.S. president. I'm not naive about Russia. I co-authored Back from the Dead: The Return of the Evil Empire, about a resurgent Russia. I believe there are Russian links to global Islamic terrorism. They also target the U.S. for propaganda and disinformation operations.... (more)

TIMOTHY P. CARNEY I am a Catholic, pro-life, libertarian populist, conservative who votes in Maryland. I consider it the least interesting part of politics to choose which of these politicians is the least objectionable candidate. I think reporting on them and putting their views and records in context is more interesting and important. But I love voting. I also believe in transparency, so here I will explain my vote.... (more)
