Trump’s evident willingness to speak to Vladimir Putin (who is no Soviet) is consistent with Reagan’s approach. I am certain Reagan would have endorsed it. Russia is now under the best administration (which is not to say it is beyond reproach) it has known in more than a century, freedom of religion, travel, assembly and opinion are legally protected, vast strides have been made in the reduction of poverty, and the country is re-Christianizing at a rapid clip. Its foreign policy, though wildly and deliberately mischaracterized by U.S. media is not expansionist: it aims at stability on Russia’s borders so to develop internally.
Black people have the capacity to run the criminals out of their neighborhoods. Let me put the issue another way. Suppose it were the Ku Klux Klan riding through black neighborhoods murdering 7,000 blacks year after year.

Monday, Donald Trump declared himself “the law and order candidate,” and added: “America’s police … are what separates civilization from total chaos and destruction of our country as we know it.” -- And Clinton? On Friday, she said, “I’m going to be talking to white people. I think we’re the ones who have to start listening.” -- Prediction: If Black Lives Matter does not clean up its act, Obama and Clinton will have to throw this crowd over the side, or the BLM will take her down.
