The Supreme Issue
In recent days, I have received numerous messages from values voters telling me, “Gary, I’m not going to vote for Hillary, but I want assurances about Donald Trump.” My first response is that values voters should be deeply reassured by Trump’s selection of Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his running mate. I have known Mike Pence for many years, since before he was elected to Congress. He often describes himself as “A Christian, a Conservative and a Republican, and in that order.” And I can vouch for his sincerity! (By the way, Gov. Pence is attracting his own large and enthusiastic crowds on the campaign trail.) But if you still need more assurances, here you go.

[Wednesday], Donald Trump spoke with CBN’s chief political correspondent, David Brody. He asked Donald Trump this question: “What is your message to those that are on the fence and aren’t sure?”
Without missing a beat, Trump answered:
“I just want the people to remember: United States Supreme Court. Whether they love me or like me or don’t like me, we’re going to put great justices, pro-life justices, we’re going to put Second Amendment justices [on the court] and I think for the evangelicals it’s so important that they get out and vote.” [Emphasis added.]
David Brody noted that Trump has done nine interviews with CBN, adding that Trump has never asked for questions in advance, and that he “just speaks from the heart and lets it rip the way he sees it.”
Brody also observed this fact about the election: “If evangelicals show up in droves, Trump wins… A record turnout by evangelicals seals the deal for Trump.”
Either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump will be president next year. Men and women of faith must choose between a radically pro-abortion candidate and a candidate promising to appoint pro-life justices. That should be an easy choice.
A New Deal
Donald Trump continued his outreach to minority voters [Wednesday] during a speech in Charlotte, North Carolina. In his remarks, Trump promised “a new deal for black America.” No other GOP presidential nominee has made such a serious appeal to African-American voters as Trump has. Here are some excerpts of his remarks.
“Today I want to talk about how to grow the African-American middle class, and to provide a new deal for Black America… My vision rests on a principle that has defined this campaign: America First…
"I’m asking today for the honor of your vote, and the privilege to represent you as your president. Here is the promise I make to you: whether you vote for me or not, I will be your greatest champion. I have no special interest, I take no orders from donors or lobbyists — I work for you, and only you… I am asking people to break from the bitter failures of the past, and to imagine the amazing possibilities for our future…
"African-American citizens have sacrificed so much for this nation. They have fought and died in every war since the Revolution, and from the pews and the picket lines they have lifted up the conscience of our country in the long march for Civil Rights. Yet, too many African-Americans have been left behind…
"The conditions in our inner cities today are unacceptable. The Democrats have run our inner cities for fifty, sixty, seventy years or more. They’ve run the school boards, the city councils, the mayor’s offices, and the congressional seats. Their policies have failed, and they’ve failed miserably…
"One of the greatest betrayals has been the issue of immigration. Illegal immigration violates the civil rights of African-Americans. No group has been more economically-harmed by decades of illegal immigration than low-income African-American workers. Hillary’s pledge to enact ‘open borders’ … would destroy the African-American middle class…
"We won’t let your jobs be stolen from you anymore. When we stop the offshoring to low-wage countries, we raise wages at home — meaning rent and bills become instantly more affordable…
"I promise that under a Trump administration the law will be applied fairly, equally and without prejudice… We will also police our streets. I want every poor African-American child to be able to walk down the street in peace. Safety is a civil right. The problem is not the presence of police but the absence of police…
"The reduction of crime is not merely a goal — but a necessity. We will get it done. The war on police urged on by my rival is reckless and dangerous, and puts African-American lives at risk. We must work with our police, not against them.
"On immigration, my policy is simple. I will restore the civil rights of African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, and all Americans, by ending illegal immigration. I will reform visa rules to give American workers preference for jobs, and I will suspend reckless refugee admissions from terror-prone regions that cost taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars. A portion of the money saved by enforcing our laws, and suspending refugees, will be re-invested in our inner cities. It is time to help the American citizens who have become refugees in their own country…
"School choice is at the center of my plan. My proposal redirects education spending to allow every disadvantaged child in America to attend the public, private, charter, magnet, religious or home school of their choice. School choice is the great civil rights issue of our time, and I will be the nation’s biggest cheerleader for school choice…
"Finally, today, my agenda includes the protection of religious liberty, the promotion of family, and support for the African-American church…
"This is just the beginning… I am humbled beyond words to be the nominee for the Party of Abraham Lincoln. And it is my highest and greatest hope that the Republican Party can be the home of the African-American vote once again. Together, we will have a government of, by and for the people. And we will make America great again for all Americans.”
There was much more in Trump’s incredible speech. Read the rest here. And PLEASE share this report with friends and family members.
Trump is offering a very positive vision for America’s future, so much more than just something to vote against. But the left-wing media will never tell you that.
There are several stories making headlines today, once again highlighting the tremendous corruption and scandals that surround the Clintons.
Responding to ethical concerns raised during an internal audit, top Clinton Foundation official Doug Band wrote a 13-page memo defending his actions with statements like this: “We have dedicated ourselves to helping the President [Bill Clinton] secure and engage in for-profit activities.”
In other words, his “defense” was to remind the Clintons how much money he was making for them. And Band was very productive.
According to The Washington Post, Band bragged about raising “in excess of $8 million for the foundation and $3 million in paid speaking fees for Bill Clinton.” Band also wrote that he had “secured contracts for the former president that would pay out $66 million” over nine years.
So the Clintons were getting rich shaking down American corporations for cash while these companies shipped your jobs overseas.
Remember the story about Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s PAC directing big money to a Democrat candidate who was married to a top FBI official investigating Hillary Clinton? It turns out that Hillary Clinton was directly involved in raising money for McAuliffe’s PAC.
We are also learning that Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, had multiple dinners with top officials at the Department of Justice. One of those officials was the lawyer who kept Podesta “out of jail” for his involvement in several Clinton White House scandals. Were they simply reminiscing about old times or plotting new schemes?
