What the Hell Is Going On?
Jay Cost: The Weekly Standard
The latest political happenings-the rise of Donald Trump, John Boehner's surprise resignation as speaker of the House of Representatives, Hillary Clinton's slide against the septuagenarian socialist Bernie Sanders-remind me of a verse from the old Rolling Stones song "Jigsaw Puzzle":

Why Kevin McCarthy Will Be Worse Than Boehner
Michael Tomasky: Daily Beast
The presumptive next speaker is promising to be more partisan than ever-and we should take him at his word.

Hillary Knew the Dangers of Private E-Mail but Didn't Let That Stop Her
Shannen Coffin: National Review
The use of personal e-mail was pervasive among Hillary Clinton's senior staff, at least according to an e-mail released yesterday by the State Department in response to Freedom of Information Act requests. That e-mail shows that Hillary and her close associates were well aware of the security risks presented by the use of private e-mail to conduct official business. They were also concerned that advertising their use of private e-mail for official business would draw hackers like sharks to chum. What was Hillary's answer? To order the rank and file not to use private e-mail - all the while continuing to conduct her own business on her home-brew server.

Donald Trump Is Not Going Anywhere
Mark Leibovich: NY Times
I don't worry about anything,'' Donald J. Trump told me aboard his 757 as we were flying to the recent Republican debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif. He was dividing his attention between the brick-size slice of red-velvet cake he was annihilating and the CNN commentator on the 57-inch television who at that moment was talking about Trump, as most commentators have been at pretty much every moment for the last three months. The commentator, Dylan Byers, was saying that Trump now ran the risk of ''jumping the shark'' because voters were becoming so familiar with his act. ''Nah,'' Trump said, smirking at the screen. As the real estate and reality-­show tycoon sees things, this is all win-win for him. Peggy Noonan of The Wall Street Journal wrote something to this effect recently, Trump told me, explaining that even if he loses, ''he goes back to being Donald Trump, but even bigger.''

The Party of Abortion, Not Women
S.E. Cupp: Daily News
As Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards took the hot seat in a House oversight committee hearing Tuesday about the organization's sale of fetal tissue, the real question we should be asking isn't whether taxpayers should continue to fund Planned Parenthood. It's why we need Planned Parenthood at all.

Yes, Hillary broke the law
Ken Cuccinelli: NY Post
Since there has been much evasion and obfuscation about Hillary Rodham Clinton's email use, it seems appropriate to step back and simply review what we know in light of the law. It's also instructive to compare Clinton's situation to arguably the most famous case of our time related to the improper handling of classified materials, namely, the case of Gen. David Petraeus.

John Boehner's resignation spells trouble for Jeb Bush
Maeve Reston and Stephen Collinson: CNN
As if Jeb Bush needed another problem. House Speaker John Boehner's abrupt resignation Friday -- after an insurrection by grassroots activists infuriated at the failure of Washington Republicans to thwart President Barack Obama -- was another bad omen for a campaign wilting amid anti-establishment fury.

It's make or break time for Jeb Bush
Ed O'Keefe and Matea Gold: Washington Post
Jeb Bush is entering a critical phase of his Republican presidential campaign, with top donors warning that the former Florida governor needs to demonstrate growth in the polls over the next month or face serious defections among supporters.

Team Bush: Don't worry, it's still early, and we've got lots of money
Byron York: Washington Examiner
Thursday is October 1. Republican caucus and primary voters begin voting the first of February. Jeb Bush has suffered a big decline in the polls, losing, by the count of Wall Street Journal pollsters, 2/3 of his support nationally since June. (He was at 22 percent in that month's Journal poll and seven percent in a new survey released Sunday.) Other polls show significant decline.

Democrats Wake Up to How Bad a Liar Hillary Is
John Fund: National Review
The biggest liability Hillary Clinton faces in getting the Democratic nomination may be that too many of her fellow Democrats don't believe she is a good liar.
