Salena Zito Not a morally upstanding guy yet Trump has the love of millions of Christian conservatives

KENOSHA, Wis. — Jill Gilmore is one of those voters who have confounded both Democrats and Never Trump Republicans the most. She is a college-educated, gun-owning female conservative Republican who voted for Donald Trump. But here’s the real kicker: She is also a devout Evangelical Christian.

“In the list of what is most important to myself and my family, faith is always first,” said the striking 34-year-old mother of seven, small business owner, and community volunteer who says she and her husband teach their children daily that behavior and respect towards others is not an option, but a requirement.

Contrast the Gilmore Golden Rule with her vote for Donald Trump — who is accused of an affair with a porn star, and who does not have a reputation for politeness and respect for others — and her decision stuns the sensibilities of both his resisters and experts.

From their perch they see a moral conflict, but she sees her support for Trump as a pragmatic, not ideological, decision. This was a calculation made by millions of religious conservatives, a cadre my co-author Brad Todd and I call the “King Cyrus Conservatives” in The Great Revolt.

Gilmore sees that calculation as paying off, especially now.

“I don't agree with President Trump’s morality. But that doesn't make him a good or a bad president,” she says. “I couldn't agree more with what he's done since he has been in office.” Gilmore listed tax reform, job creation, decreased regulations, talks with North Korea, and his Supreme Court pick of Neil Gorsuch among other acts.

“He's moved this country forward, he's kept his promises that he made on the campaign. I am much more pleased with him than I thought I would be,” she said.

Gilmore was in particularly thrilled with last week’s Supreme Court 7-2 decision written by Justice Anthony Kennedy where the court ruled in favor of Jack Phillips, a Colorado baker and owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, stating that tolerance goes both ways, and that he could not be could be forced by the Colorado Civil Rights Commission to design a cake for a ce

Fox News’ Charles Krauthammer Says He Has Weeks to Live After Cancer Returns ‘My Fight Is Over’

Fox News political analyst Charles Krauthammer said on Friday that he only has weeks left to live after learning that his cancer has returned and that he’s in final stages of a losing battle.

The 68-year-old psychiatric physician turned Pulitzer Prize-winning analyst wrote a letter, which Fox News reported, explaining that for nearly a year, he’s battled an abdominal tumor and subsequent complications following what was thought to be a successful surgery to remove the tumor.

“I have been uncharacteristically silent these past ten months. I had thought that silence would soon be coming to an end, but I’m afraid I must tell you now that fate has decided on a different course for me,” Krauthammer said in the letter. “It was a long and hard fight with many setbacks, but I was steadily, if slowly, overcoming each obstacle along the way and gradually making my way back to health. However, recent tests have revealed that the cancer has returned.

“My doctors tell me their best estimate is that I have only a few weeks left to live. This is the final verdict. My fight is over.”

Krauthammer graduated from Harvard medical school in 1975 after a diving accident left him paralyzed from the neck down. He began his career in medicine before going on to work for PBS, The New Republic and winning a Pulitzer Prize with The Washington Post.

Rupert Murdoch, executive chairman of 21st Century Fox and Fox News, said Krauthammer brought a profound intellect to Fox News.

“His always principled stand on the most important issues of our time has been a guiding star in an often turbulent world, a world that has too many superficial thinkers vulnerable to the ebb and flow of fashion, and a world that, unfortunately, has only one Charles Krauthammer,” Murdoch said in a statement. “His words, his ideas, his dignity and his integrity will resonate within our society and within me for many, many years to come.”

Krauthammer said in his note there was no sign of it as recently as a month ago, which means it is aggressive and spreading rapidly.

“I leave this life with no regrets. It was a wonderful life full and complete with the great loves and great endeavors that make it worth livin
