Ramesh Ponnuru: Welfare reform, the bipartisan success story

commercialappeal.com — Welfare reform may be the last great bipartisan success story. It was enacted in 1996 by a Republican Congress led by Newt Gingrich and by Democratic President Bill Clinton in response to decades of public frustration with the U.S. system of aid to the poor.

Donald Trump & Republican Party -- Conservatives Should Learn from His Candidacy

nationalreview.com — Even conservatives who oppose Donald Trump - perhaps especially those conservatives - could learn a few things from him. That's true even if he ends up losing the election in November. Immigration. Before Trump entered the race, the only Republican presidential candidate who questioned the need for much higher levels of immigration was former senator Rick Santorum.

Trump’s vows on Supreme Court are equivocal at best

kansascity.com — Donald Trump has offered a list of judges whom he might nominate to the court if he is elected. Conservatives have praised that list, saying the judges would move the court back toward a more appropriate role. But conservatives can have no confidence that Trump would both nominate and win confirmation for someone on the list.

Ramesh Ponnuru: Trump’s vow on the Supreme Court Is meaningless

commercialappeal.com — By Ramesh Ponnuru Conservative journalist Hugh Hewitt calls it Donald Trump's "trump card" against the conservatives who oppose him: The Supreme Court is on the line. Trump sees it the same way. "If you really like Donald Trump, that's great, but if you don't, you have to vote for me anyway," the candidate said at a recent rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

The Pro-Life Case for Being Pro-Life

nationalreview.com — Michael New makes several sound points against the idea that pro-lifers should vote for Hillary Clinton even though (or maybe because) she supports legal abortion. One additional point: A legal regime that treats unborn human beings as non-persons whose killing is a matter of official indifference is unjust, and it is unjust even if the incidence of abortion is low and falling.

Obama's Challenge to Republicans

nationalreview.com — President Obama said that those Republicans who have repeatedly denounced Donald Trump's comments should not be supporting his presidential campaign. On this point, I agree with him. But it's worth noting that if Republicans had done what he suggests - or were to do it now - he would almost certainly move the goalposts.

When a Flag Crosses the Line to Harassment

bloomberg.com — Is it racial harassment in the workplace to display the yellow "Don't tread on me" flag? The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission says that it could be, depending on the context. The commission acknowledged that the Gadsden flag, which dates back to the era of the American Revolution, did not have racist origins.

Mayo Spoofing and Earnings Hints

bloomberg.com — My favorite market structure story of 2016 so far may be this one, about Hampton Creek, the food company that makes Just Mayo: Hampton Creek executives quietly launched a campaign to purchase mass quantities of Just Mayo from stores, according to five former workers and more than 250 receipts, expense reports, cash advances and e-mails reviewed by Bloomberg.

The Fed May Hold, But Monetary Conditions Are Tightening Anyhow

bloomberg.com — The Federal Reserve's next monetary policy decision, scheduled for Sept. 21, will be a non-event, according to the futures market, with about an 80 percent chance that the central bank will leave interest rates unchanged. But the unintended consequence of a rule change involving U.S.

@AG_Conservative Everyone is reporting that the reporting is unfair? Is this Trump's version of the Cretan paradox?

Maybe @KellyannePolls holds all these views? They're compatible with each other! And maybe she's nudging the candidate that way too. 4/4
