Democrats

Laughing Our Ossoff

As President Trump put it in an Election Night tweet: Well, the Special Elections are over and those that want to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN are 5 and O! All the Fake News, all the money spent = 0

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Eric Holder slithers out of the DC swamp to save us from ourselves

Democrats are so desperate to find a scapegoat for losing last November they’re latching on to anything that could potentially motivate their followers to stay with them. And if the actions of Eric Holder and post-presidency Obama are any indication, the effort has just begun.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Can Trump and the GOP fill America’s critical leadership vacuum?

It will be extremely difficult to keep all of the competing interests satisfied in the days to come. The parties are already returning to their pre-shooting divisions and the prospects for an Article V convention remain dim. Leadership is called for. Can Trump and the Republicans do the job?

James Hodgkinson was a Democrat, but the media want 'both sides' to claim him

Eddie Scarry, Washington Examiner

Kathy Griffin posed for a photo that depicted her holding a severed Trump head, but when a Democrat deliberately targets an elected Republican to take a bullet, the media ask that everyone be ashamed of themselves. Or at least Trump. The national media were all too ready for violence to break out among whipped-up Trump supporters, but for more than a year, the violence has only come from one side. It's not Trump's.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Whether it takes two years or ten, Trump will break the ruling class

Two years in, the phenomenon that is President Donald Trump will continue to break new ground in American politics. Impeachment will never work and he simply will not quit – ever. Trump will battle the establishment to the death. If I were you I wouldn’t bet against him winning.

Do Nothing Congress Creating Deadly Enthusiasm Gap For GOP

While President Trump holds a 47 percent approval rating, at 29 percent Speaker Paul Ryan's abysmal approval rating is beginning to drag down the whole GOP, and especially its establishment candidates.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: When it comes to hate speech the left owns all the talent in the world

Leftists don’t want a debate because they know they’d lose. The Declaration of Independence states our God-given inalienable rights include life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Liberals don’t want these things – they want thought-control, income redistribution and forced equality.

Can a Divided America Survive?

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

America barely survived the Civil War of 1861–65, the Great Depression of 1929–39, and the rioting and protests of the 1960s. But today’s growing divides are additionally supercharged by instant Internet and social-media communications, 24/7 cable news, partisan media, and the denigration of America’s past traditions. All Americans need to take a deep breath, step back, and rein in their anger — and find more ways to connect rather than divide themselves.

Trump and the End of the Beginning

Roger Kimball, PJ Media

Success has a way of blotting out or at least marginalizing criticism. As Trump forges ahead, quietly racking up victory after victory, the yapping chihuahuas are going to appear more and more absurd to the public.  Those pups are yapping, but as the old Arab mot puts it, the caravan is nevertheless traveling on. Forecast: 10% chance of crisis, 90% chance of sun.

Did The Left Just Start The Civil War It Has Been Threatening?

Hodgkinson’s attack on the Republican congressional baseball team wasn’t mental illness. Read his writings, read the political manifesto in his letters to the editor and it doesn’t require an FBI investigation to recognize that this was the first “lone wolf” attack in the Left’s long-planned American civil war.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: The left’s leaky earthen dam of hate is crumbling all around them

After this week’s events will the Democrats suddenly drop their obsession with Russia? Will the media start talking about issues and legislation rather than Trump’s latest tweets and quit branding Republicans as evil and greedy defenders of the rich? Don’t bet money on it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If President Trump should fall who will lift the flag and carry on?

There will come a point – and soon – where the so-called Republican #NeverTrump opposition needs to make a choice to get behind Trump or be cut loose from the conservative movement. Then it will truly come down to a “with us or against us” proposition.

Are We Nearing Civil War?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

If the president cannot rewrite Obamacare or achieve tax reform, he should not go around the country in 2018 wailing about Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Schumer. They are not the real adversaries. They are but interchangeable parts. He should campaign against the real enemies of America First by promising to purge the deep state and flog its media collaborators.

Democrat F-Bombs and the Inevitable Culture War

Mark Bauerlein, The American Spectator

The willingness of Kathy Griffin and Maxine Waters to go as far as they have shows how deeply invested progressives are in the insult tactic. This is going to continue until November 2018 and the midterm elections. If the Democrats win, it will vindicate threats and profanity in American politics.

AG Sessions Before The Senate Intelligence Committee: It’s A Hearing About Nothing

Today’s hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee featuring former Senator, now Attorney General, Jeff Sessions should be the last time the government of the United States allows itself to be manipulated into responding to the lies and provocations of James Comey.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How the wisdom of Ben Franklin would solve GOP's cowardly dilemma

If grassroots conservatives aren’t worried about Comey, why should congressman and senators be concerned? The GOP agenda will rise or fall with the support of Republicans already in Congress. The party has rarely enjoyed such an opportunity…if they would only take it.

The Democrats’ War To Drive Christians Out Of Government

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
The Democrats’ successful strategy to derail the nomination of Dr. Mark Green and their vicious attacks on Russell Vought and Roger Severino should alert all Christians that the war for the soul of America is entering a new phase, and if we don’t stand together to defend these good men and women who are called to public office when they are attacked, then not only will Christians be driven from government, but so will our values.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: GOP leaders snooze as America teeters on brink of cultural dissolution

America is in trouble. At some point right must triumph over wrong. As Abraham Lincoln observed in his Second Inaugural Address, both sides can’t be right; one side must prevail. This may not yet be civil war, but culturally speaking, we’re at the threshold.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Are Trump’s tweets really killing his agenda?

It’s understandable why Trump seeks to bypass the media and speak unfiltered with the voters by tweeting. Such an ambition is not only necessary, it’s noble. It’s also evident he needs some sort of a balance where he’s no longer hurting his agenda 140 characters (or less) at a time.
