Conservative Outsider Mike Braun Charging Ahead In Indiana Senate Race

In the lead-up to his third statewide media buy, businessman and conservative outsider Mike Braun called on his two leading opponents, Congressmen Todd Rokita and Luke Messer, to join with him and denounce the news that House Republicans are considering bringing back the pork-barrel projects known as earmarks.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Only way we get Pres. Oprah is if Donald stops being President Trump

All the tweets in the world won’t pass bills in Congress or improve Trump’s standing with the skeptical part of the public. Trump likely won’t face impeachment and Oprah probably won’t run – but the ultimate success of his administration depends on his ability to control himself.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Will the GOP hold the line on immigration? We’ll soon find out.

History suggests President Trump has a few aces up his sleeve on immigration and in the upcoming GOP primaries. Some may have set aside Trump’s promise to drain the swamp but it’s doubtful he has. Making American Great Again won’t happen without his key agenda items.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Americans would be crazy to believe critics claiming Trump is unstable

The media and Democrats will continue to say Trump is unstable, insane, unbalanced and any other adjective that implies his behavior is a threat to the country. Leftists imagine getting rid of Trump would spell the end of his policy agenda – it’s up to us to prove them wrong.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ obsession with 2018 midterms won’t subside until they lose

The possibility of regaining power and stopping President Trump ensures a steady stream of media reports concerning this year’s midterm elections. Trump’s statements remain the hot topic of discussion but congressional Republicans can better make their case by sticking to his winning agenda.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Ding-dong Orrin Hatch will be gone but Romney could easily be worse

Time will tell how Orrin Hatch’s retirement will play out. Regardless, there will be new blood in the senate after Hatch’s departure – and that can only be a good thing. Mitt Romney would add a new establishment presence to Washington – but would he really just be a thorn in Trump’s side?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: 2018’s political wars could make 2017’s seem like minor skirmishes

The nature of American politics ensures almost constant conflict and 2018 promises to be no different. Republicans should be proud of the progress made in 2017 but by no means is the fight won so everyone can go home satisfied. Simply put, there won’t be any time to rest on our laurels.

How Conservatives Can Make 2018 Better Than 2017

It’s the Primaries, stupid! In most states every office from Governor to precinct committeeman in your precinct will be on the ballot in the 2018 primary. If you are represented by a RINO or an ineffective elected offical we urge you to go to your local elections office and pick up the paperwork to file TODAY.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Trump’s winning formula needs a few tweaks, not a New Year’s overhaul

One can only hope Trump makes a few New Year’s resolutions, most notably a resolve to improve his approval ratings. But some things he’s doing don’t need to be changed; as the first president in decades who seeks to keep his campaign promises, Trump is already ahead of the game.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Republicans shouldn’t allow elites to lead them to whitewash in 2018

Republicans should rightfully be buoyed by their successes in the past month. Heading into 2018, however, there remain tremendous challenges to unite conservatives, choose good candidates for the midterm elections and put more “legislative points on the board.” Can they hold it together?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Who better to assess the American mood, Karl Rove or Donald Trump?

Everyone who voted for Trump knew what they were getting and his administration has thus far featured few unpleasant surprises. The White House may lack a true political operation but in many ways that’s a good thing. All signs point to Trump’s momentum being sustained.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: 'Real' President Trump delivers America a very Merry Christmas, indeed

There’s quite a lot to celebrate this Christmas season. Thankfully Trump isn’t just an “animatronic” figure in a Disney program – he’s a real life president with a popular agenda and the brainpower and determination to follow through on his promises to Make America Great Again.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Only Democrats would claim cutting taxes for everyone is a dumb idea

No matter the name, tax cuts are helpful to “real” people out there. Democrats will continue to slam Republicans regardless of what they do; if this tax episode hasn’t taught the GOP they’re engaged in a political fight to the death I’m not sure what it would take to convince them.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ impeachment drumbeat will come back to bite them

It seems clear the more Democrats talk about “me too” and impeachment of Donald Trump the more they’re boxing themselves into a corner that will be difficult to emerge from. American voters are sick to death of partisan games – isn’t it about time we started talking about policy again?

11 Things Every Real Conservative Should Ask On A First Date

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

As conservatives, it’s vital that we also do some screening of our own. After all, the last thing we want to do is inadvertently turn down a Darwinian not-a-through-street and spawn more liberals. I'm out of the dating game but let me try to help out you singleberries with some questions to assist you in detecting any right-swipes who are actually covert leftist weirdos, losers, and/or mutations.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How Mitch McConnell will expose the best candidate in every primary

Conservatives cannot let Tuesday night’s defeat in Alabama deter them from identifying and supporting the best candidates in every GOP primary race. Ironically, Mitch McConnell will help in this endeavor – find out who he backs and think strongly about choosing one of his or her opponents.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Will landing men on the moon help Make America Great Again?

Thinking big used to be a universal requirement from leaders of government, something we’ve steadily gotten away from in recent times. President Trump believes we can regain the same spirit that drove Americans to land men on the moon in the 60’s – here’s speculating he’s right again.
