Chad Robichaux is a Marine who developed post-traumatic stress disorder in the aftermath of eight tours in Afghanistan. After years of suffering, he now runs a counseling program dedicated to helping veterans avoid suicide, divorce, and other attendant problems. He knows from his own experience that a faith-based approach works. Our government, allergic to faith-based programs, isn’t really interested, especially under Barack Obama.

So when Donald Trump came to a meeting of the Retired American Warriors PAC on October 3, Robichaux asked a question. “Spiritual fitness works on these types of problems. The government is not taking advantage of these programs and services,” Robichaux said. "Will you support and fund a more holistic approach?"

If there were a competition among the major broadcast television networks to see which one has done the most to help propel Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign this year, there should be little doubt about which one would get top honors.

Here’s a shocker – the cast of a popular television show is endorsing a Democrat for president.Just as they came out to endorse and support President Obama back in 2008 and 2012, Hollywood has lent their liberal voices and money to the Clinton campaign. Take the cast of the black-oriented hip-hop Fox drama Empire. Its creator Lee Daniels filmed a new millennial-targeted Hillary Clinton ad, urging young Americans to get out and vote.

Donald Trump's repeated threats to bring up Bill Clinton's treatment of women accusing him of sexual impropriety have brought repeated bouts of bizarre arguments that emerged in the wake of the impeachment process in 1998.

USA Today ran an op-ed on Friday with the strange title "Clinton marriage is something to brag about." Alicia Shepard, a former ombudsman for National Public Radio, declared: "The Clintons' weather-beaten, time-tested, scandal-ridden marriage is something to be proud of, something to brag about. It is as significant an achievement as their daughter Chelsea, and might just be the most human thing about Hillary Clinton."

In a Vox essay, Laura Kipnis, a professor in Northwestern University’s radio/television/film department, opined that "playing the sexual blame game" regarding Bill and Hillary Clinton "means being a right-wing patsy," and that Bill was pretty awesome back in the ‘90s, even when he was a bad, bad boy: "Wasn’t it always obvious that Bill Clinton’s so-called ‘character issues’ were part of the attraction, that he was elected twice not in spite of his glaringly apparent flaws as a husband, but because of them?" Kipnis also argued that Hillary belongs in the "Feminist Hall of Fame" for her steadfast support of "international abortion rights."

CNN’s Jake Tapper on Thursday called out Barack Obama for featuring a 9/11 truther celebrity at a White House event this week. The rapper, who has repeatedly pushed conspiracy theories blaming George W. Bush for the September 11th 2001 terrorist attacks, appeared at a panel discussion on drug abuse in America. On The Lead, Tapper wondered, “Is it acceptable... for the White House which has a war against birthers, and rightly so, to have a truther come to the White House?”

In a surprising move, Hollywood appears to have created an unabashedly pro-American, pro-law-enforcement film with Patriots Day. Director Peter Berg’s upcoming film focuses on the courage of police and citizens surrounding the Boston Marathon bombing. The Hollywood Reporter’s international editor Abid Rahman wrote that the movie starring Lone Survivor actor Mark Wahlberg will recall the horrific events of April 15, 2013, when bombs placed by two Islamic extremists exploded at the Boston Marathon, leaving three dead and 264 injured. The bombing occurred on Patriot’s Day, the Massachusetts state holiday celebrating the first battles of the American Revolution.

While the national media on Friday joined Hillary Clinton’s crusade to force Florida Governor Rick Scott to extend voter registration in the state in the wake of Hurricane Matthew, anchors and reporters forgot to mention that the such a move would actually be illegal under Florida law.

Whether it’s the urge to link the Paris climate deal or global warming to Hurricane Matthew, the left has injected politics into a news cycle that should solely be focused on the deadly hurricane. In the last 24 hours, their focus has shifted to Florida’s registration deadline and their worries that it’d affect the 2016 presidential election with Slate providing one such instance of a liberal site airing its grievances.

Trevor Noah just rocked the boat. In less than five minutes, the Daily Show host defended both Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani, while simultaneously excoriating the media for misrepresentation and selective editing.

To some actors in Hollywood, capitalism is apparently up there with misogyny and bigotry, in the list of the most evil things a candidate can stand for. Actress and author Jamie Lee Curtis, (looking and sounding very much like Rachel Maddow), said as much to Tavis Smiley on his Thursday night PBS show, claiming that Donald Trump represented all these things. Instead, she stated, Hillary stood for “women, children, education and healthcare” so the decision should be a no-brainer for women.

The latest of the liberal-leaning Clarify podcasts on Spotify addressed the issue of police killings, attributing the problem to a “pattern of racial discrimination.” The third episode of the podcast released Sept. 27 was called “Civil Rights.” In it, host Baratunde Thurston, a former producer of The Daily Show, discussed the “lack of accountability” in policing while neglecting to include any sort of pro-law enforcement voice.

Media "fact-checkers" have finally arrived to the point where unpleasant facts stated by people they consider unpleasant can simply be labeled "misleading," and dismissed without anything resembling a coherent explanation.

Apparently Kurtis Lee and Seema Mehta at the Los Angeles Times have access to a special Newspeak news media version of the dictionary which contains a definition of "misleading" differing from the real dictionary: "deceptive; tending to mislead" ("mislead" as a verb primarily means "to lead or guide wrongly; lead astray"). They're using their Newspeak definition to claim that a completely factual statement by Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence about U.S. plans to accept Syrian refugees, which they label an "accusation" in their headline, is, well, "misleading."

PBS host Charlie Rose on Thursday discussed Kim Kardashian and the musical Hamilton with Supreme Court Judge Stephen Breyer. Yet, he offered no tough questions on the justice’s liberalism and instead labeled him a moderate. In a fawning introduction, Rose told viewers that Breyer “is known for his pragmatism, love of literature and love of architecture.”

On Friday, all three network morning shows dutifully advanced concerns from Hillary Clinton’s campaign that Hurricane Matthew could impact voter registration in Florida and touted the Democratic nominee’s demand that the state’s deadline for registration be extended to help her get more support at the ballot box in November.
