Donald Trump clobbers the media, continues to steamroll showboaters and attackers
Keith Koffler: Lifezette
Many in the "mainstream" media act like they are members of an exclusive club that protects and covers for its members no matter what. High-profile journalists, along with the GOP establishment, have decided real estate mogul Donald Trump is a populist vulgarian who needs to be removed from the scene.

Jorge Ramos Is an Immigration Activist Posing as a Reporter
Ian Tuttle: National Review
Donald Trump might not have paid for that microphone, but he sure as hell owned it. At a press conference in Iowa on Tuesday, Trump had barely reached the podium before Jorge Ramos, superstar anchor for Spanish-language network Univision, began interrogating him about his immigration platform. Trump, who already had called on a different journalist for the first question, told Ramos to be quiet and wait his turn. Ramos refused: "I have the right to ask a question," he declared. At a nod from The Donald, security escorted Ramos from the room.

Donald Trump's appeal - an Obama for the right
John Podhoretz: NY Post
Donald Trump keeps rolling along, with new polls (caveat: polls stink) showing him far ahead of the GOP pack in the early primary states of New Hampshire and South Carolina.

Jeb Bush Falls Into a Trap
The Editorial Board: NY Times
Jeb Bush went to the border town of McAllen, Tex., on Monday to raise money and to talk about immigration, in English and fluent Spanish. Because the Republican presidential campaign has been so fixated on border security and the immigrant peril - thank you, Donald Trump - it was a chance to see how the supposed expert on this fraught subject handled it.

Crash Increases the Odds of President Trump
Charles Gasparino: NY Post
Crashing markets and floundering economies amplify voter anxiety - just like they did in 2008, when they helped propel into the White House a one-term US senator and "community organizer."

Jeb Bush, with Donald Trump on his mind, takes the border
Eli Stokols: Politico
In this predominantly Hispanic border town, Jeb Bush dismissed Donald Trump's proposal of building a wall to stop the flow of undocumented immigrants through Mexico and called for "a comprehensive" border security strategy - and he did it mostly in Spanish.

America's Sanctuary City Nightmare
Hans A. von Spakovsky: National Interest
A litigation battle is raging between the states and President Barack Obama over his attempt to impose a nationwide "sanctuary" policy for illegal aliens. Yet, there is no question that existing sanctuary policies implemented by numerous towns and cities have victimized innocent Americans. Those sanctuary policies have enabled illegal aliens to commit thousands of crimes -crimes that would not have occurred had their perpetrators been deported in keeping with existing law.

Why Donald Trump Won't Fold: Polls and People Speak
Michael Barbaro, Nate Cohn and Jeremy W. Peters: NY Times
In the command centers of Republican presidential campaigns, aides have drawn comfort from the belief that Donald J. Trump's dominance in the polls is a political summer fling, like Herman Cain in 2011 - an unsustainable boomlet dependent on megawatt celebrity, narrow appeal and unreliable surveys of Americans with a spotty record of actually voting in primaries. A growing body of evidence suggests that may be wishful thinking. A review of public polling, extensive interviews with a host of his supporters in two states and a new private survey that tracks voting records all point to the conclusion that Mr. Trump has built a broad, demographically and ideologically diverse coalition, constructed around personality, not substance, that bridges demographic and political divides. In doing so, he has effectively insulated himself from the consequences of startling statements that might instantly doom rival candidates.

Has Donald Trump Forced Jeb Bush to Change Tune on Immigration?
Perry Bacon Jr.: NBC News
Jeb Bush, as he often notes, co-wrote a book two years ago called "Immigration Wars," laying out a path to reforming America's immigration system. In the six chapters of the book, two phrases never appear: "sanctuary cities" and "anchor babies." But in a six-point immigration proposal he released earlier this month, the former Florida governor included a plan to crack down on cities that don't cooperate with federal authorities on immigration law enforcement.

Get Washington Out of Our Healthcare
Eugene Robinson: Washington Post
It has dawned on the Republican presidential field that Donald Trump's inevitable self-destruction might be, gulp, evitable. Waiting for the unlikely front-runner to beat himself is starting to look like a plan, as Trump might put it, for total losers.
