Treat Russia Like the International Poison It Is

Eli Lake @ Bloomberg:
Russia’s ambassador to Washington is disappointed. Despite great potential for cooperation, Sergei Kislyak told an audience Tuesday at Johns Hopkins University that the two countries are locked in 'unfriendly discussions.' Wouldn’t the world be safer and more stable if these two powers got along

With apologies to Ambassador Kislyak, the answer to this question is no. Contrary to his protestations, Russia is not invested in protecting the world order. It is dedicated to undermining the organizations, agreements and laws that comprise it...

Welcome To Steve Bannon's Trumpocalypse

Ben Shapiro @ DailyWire:
For the past few months, outsiders to the Trump campaign wondered how he’d been maintaining control of himself. I posited that campaign manager Kellyanne Conway had 'apparently been able to get Trump under control.
Like a pent-up movie monster chained to the wall of a dank dungeon,
Trump’s aggression waits – lurks.'

Here was Donald Trump tweeting this morning...

Trump’s Corruption of the GOP Is Almost Complete

'There are apparently no depths to which
some Republicans won’t sink for this man'

David French @ NRO:
Way back in March, my colleague Jonah Goldberg offered the perfect description of the way Trump’s endorsers become corrupted:
It’s the invasion of the body snatchers.
They’ve been taken over by a hostile organism.

Sure, they look the same, but, in Jonah’s words, 'They’re different, somehow. They talk funny. They don’t care about the same things they used to'...

Republican Friendships Being Lost Over Trump?
OH WELL- Some of Us Didn’t Sell Out

Jay Caruso @ RedState

I can't say I have lost any close friends due to my lack of support for Donald Trump. Many of my friends agree with me about his candidacy. There have been professional relationships that have been frayed and arguments with some friends over Trump but nothing serious. 

There are however, deep divisions among some people, particularly with organizations, elected officials, party people and others who have jumped aboard the Trump Train after years of telling others he was an unacceptable member of the Republican Party...

'Never Trump' Republicans Standing Firm

Never still means never for the collection of Republicans known as
'Never Trump' because of their committed opposition to Donald Trump.

These Republicans, ranging from lawmakers, to intellectuals, to party insiders and strategists, remains firmly opposed to Trump, even as the GOP nominee has become more competitive with Hillary Clinton.

That opposition continues despite the fresh attention on the scandals hovering over the Democratic nominee's presidential candidacy, as well as fresh news about Clinton being diagnosed with pneumonia.

The illness forced Clinton off the campaign trail for at least a
few days this week.

For 'Never Trump' Republicans, opposition to their party's nominee has never been tied to his viability in the polls or their opinion of Clinton...

Trump's Enablers Will Be Responsible
for His Epic Defeat in November

Michael Van Der Galien @PJ Media:

Let's face it- Trump is a loose cannon. He's a narcissistic megalomaniac who just can't keep his mouth closed. He's probably the worst candidate the Republicans have ever put forth. And that's saying something; I haven't forgotten about Bob Dole...
