Democrats

The Left’s Newest Star Is None Too Bright

David Catron, The American Spectator

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been promoted by the legacy media as the prototype of a new generation of young progressives destined to replace the leadership of the Democratic Party. Unfortunately for her media boosters, however, she keeps blowing her lines. It’s not just her rote advocacy of single-payer healthcare and guaranteed government jobs, or even that she backs wacky ideas like abolishing ICE and occupying airports — Ocasio-Cortez is genuinely clueless.

New Poll: Conservatives Say Kavanaugh Will Boost GOP In Midterms

Almost 95% of those polled by FedUp PAC say the Kavanaugh nomination will boost the GOP in the midterms because “most Americans support the Constitution and want Supreme Court justices who will follow it.”  Less than 4% think the nomination will hurt Republicans this fall.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How California dreamin’ devolved into a liberal American nightmare

California remains the butt of jokes simply because its political leadership is granted free license to be as nutty as they want to be without fear of electoral rebuke. It’s a liberal politician’s dream; unfortunately for the rest of us California’s devolved into an American nightmare.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Why are Democrats trying to seize the stupid party label from the GOP?

Democrats can’t help themselves in trying to seize the “stupid party” label from the GOP. If the minority party continues committing political hara-kiri by calling for the abolishment of ICE, they deserve everything they get. Republicans should simply stand by and watch the implosion.

Dems' Big Lie About Kavanaugh

Betsy McCaughey, The American Spectator

Democratic fear mongers have a shot at derailing Kavanaugh, because they only need one Republican defection. The states are maneuvering around Obamacare rules to give the healthy lower premiums and still protect the seriously ill. That sure beats scaring the nation with phony numbers and misleading warnings about pre-existing conditions. As for Judge Kavanaugh himself, he has never written one word about covering or not covering pre-existing conditions. To smear him as an enemy of the sick is pure flimflam.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Trump steamrolls DC ruling class on the road to American rebrand

It's no secret Donald Trump will never be accepted as a member of the DC ruling class, but his backers don’t care and he himself is far from bothered by it. Trump will succeed in his drive to improve the American brand – whether the media or political elites ride along is irrelevant.

I am a Vietnam veteran. Here's why I chose to #WalkAway

Russell V. Hanson, Fox News

It struck me when I heard about the current #WalkAway campaign that it is not new. I was a pioneer in this movement some 40 years ago; and, there were many thousands of voters who walked away and elected President Donald Trump during our last election.  We will need more patriots who are willing to take the difficult road to righteousness and reject the easy road which will lead to the denigration of our model democracy. Join me! Realize that you won’t be walking alone.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: International allies and competitors learn Trumpism transcends borders

One of President Trump’s best attributes is his ability to shake off criticism and do what’s right for the American people. Establishmentarians may not appreciate Trump’s style, but he gets results. It’s a lesson NATO allies – and our enemies – are relearning every day.

Preexisting Prevarication

David Catron, The American Spectator

The goal of endangered Democratic Senators is to scare their moderate constituents into accepting a party line vote without punishing them at the ballot box. Consequently, these charlatans are attempting to fool the folks back home with phony defiance of their party’s leaders. Joe Manchin, for example, claims that he will react to any pressure from Schumer by telling him, “kiss my you know what.” This is pure theater. If Manchin can get away with it, he and the rest will vote on behalf of those whose wishes they really care about — their Beltway masters.

It’s Undeniable: Trump Is Blessed With Really Stupid Enemies

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

How did Trump luck out by getting such hopeless geebos for opponents? It can’t just be chance. At every turn, these dummies choose to lock themselves into the most implausible and indefensible positions imaginable, then push all their chips into the center of the table. It’s almost supernatural – maybe Trump won the intervention of some ancient demon by heading over to the offices of the Weekly Standard and snatching away one of its Never Trump scribblers to use as a virgin sacrifice.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Donald Trump may be the world’s most unlikely liberator of all time

It’s often said all politics is local but it could just as easily be argued politics is national and global as well. Political leaders win favor by advancing ideas and principles that people can relate to. Republicans would do well to remember folks are drawn to real ideas, not just smears.

Democrats Are Dumping Moderates

John Fund, National Review

Donald Trump’s presidency has created a form of derangement syndrome among Democrats, pushing many of them into positions that may play well with their base but that will be problematic if they become associated with the party in general elections. If warmed-over Marxists think they can scare voters into supporting Democrats by flying Donald Trump blimps and brandishing his image on posters, they may be in for a rude surprise in general elections.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: #NeverTrumpers make it plain they enjoy being lonely outside the party

Luckily for conservatives President Trump has lived up to his campaign promises and is leading the most principled government since Ronald Reagan. Trump’s “conservative” opponents won’t acknowledge the writing on the wall, leaving them alone and outside the party. Literally.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Kavanaugh nomination to trigger 2018 version of DC political apocalypse

There’s no doubt the next few months will be an exciting time to be in Washington. All eyes will be on the senate as the two parties deliberate over Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s future. Democrats won’t hold back on the ferocity of their attacks on the man – will the republic survive?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Are unhinged Democrats on the verge of starting a violent insurrection?

Tensions in America aren’t dying down and ugly incidents are becoming the norm. The left is desperate to release the rage it feels over Donald Trump – and people like Juan Williams aren’t helping things. With a Supreme Court nomination to deal with now, it’ll only get worse.

Democrats Love Socialism Because They Want To Take Your Stuff And Enslave You

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Socialism means what’s theirs is theirs and so is what’s yours. Our private property – what we have worked for and accumulated over decades – is no longer ours. It’s theirs, to be done with – to be redistributed – as those in power wish. And if you object, they will send people with guns to make you comply. In contrast, in freedom and capitalism, the people with guns protect you from having what’s yours taken.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Suicidal Democrats risk disaster by defending the remorseless Waters

Liberals may think they’re laying the groundwork for political success by backing their own no matter what anyone says or does but they’re really just setting themselves up for failure. Maxine Waters has become a lightning rod for a reason – Democrats are suicidal to follow her lead.

If you love liberty, don't wish for Democratic victories

Editors, Washington Examiner

We understand conservatives who are angry, frustrated, and embarrassed by Trump. We have repeatedly called on Congress in the past two years to pass laws curbing executive powers. But as long as the Left wishes, nay reveals a determination, to destroy fundamental freedoms, nobody who values liberty should wish for a Democratic takeover of the federal government.

Why Maxine Waters Is Going Crazy

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Categorize the person and stamp out the individual. You're a black. You're a lesbian. You're a single mother.  That's all you are. A category. Someone to be exploited and then spit out. This is where today's Democratic Party is taking us and has taken us, consciously or not. It's what Maxine Waters depends on for her money and power. If you follow it to its logical conclusion what you get is something far closer to the Nazi Germany of The Master Race and The Final Solution than anything remotely to do with Donald Trump.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Immigration quagmire exposes both parties’ leadership deficit in DC

Leadership is in short supply for both parties and the American political situation has deteriorated because of it. No progress will ever be made on immigration until Republicans elect leaders willing to stand up for President Trump’s common-sense reforms. Democrats are simply hopeless.
