Hot on the Right: Private citizens lead the way in Hurricane Irma relief, Trump and Congress abusing the Constitution


A roundup of today’s editorials that includes how private citizens are leading the relief effort behind Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma, Trump and Congress quietly abusing the Constitution, and how Hillary Clinton doesn’t get George Orwell’s ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four,’ which she references in her new book.

1. With Hurricane Irma, private volunteers- not gov’t- again lead way in relief

From Investor’s Business Daily: “But the bulk of the action is among private-sector volunteers. And when a disaster happens, it's almost always that way, despite the left's politicization of human suffering and claims that "more government" is the salve for all ills.”

2. Congress, Trump and Governor eviscerate the Bill of Rights

From Townhall: “On a daily basis, government officials at all levels make decisions and take steps that are, to put it mildly, without basis in our Constitution, or are in direct contravention of that magnificent document.”

3. Hillary Clinton doesn’t get George Orwell’s ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four’

From The Washington Examiner: “Hillary Clinton, excuse-maker-in-chief, uses her new book to reference George Orwell's dystopian novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984), and warn against Trump's created realities.”
