Outsiders vs. Insiders: Playing by the (senate) rules will guarantee defeat for GOP this year

In some ways rules are made to be broken. Just like with a law that’s repealed, rules outlive their usefulness and validity. Republicans would be smart to remember that bold moves – i.e. “breaking rules” – would not only help pass their agenda; the public would reward them for it too.

We Need More Conservative Warriors Like Jordan, Meadows, Gaetz And DeSantis

Far from being merely partisan apologists for President Trump, Reps Jim Jordan, Mark Meadows, Matt Gaetz and Ron DeSantis are reflecting what their constituents think about the Mueller investigation and the Russia collusion probe.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If chaos equals success for the Trump administration, bring on more of it

The media created narrative of “turmoil” in the White House has clearly taken hold with the public yet it remains a mystery whether it will hurt Republican candidates this year or Trump’s reelection chances in 2020. All we can do is dig below the surface to see where the truth lies.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Should conservatives be worried about what the media isn’t telling us?

Conservatives instinctively know to question everything that’s reported by the liberal mainstream news media but the recent flare-ups over the Correspondents’ dinner and the ongoing pampering of Hillary Clinton are especially troubling. How much bias is there and what are they not telling us?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: GOP’s secret weapon in November just could be the deranged Democrats

The end of the first week in May is never a good time to make accurate predictions as to what will happen on Election Day in November. A million things could occur in the next six months, but one factor will remain the same regardless – Democrats will always be Democrats.

Democrats' dangerous case of Trump Derangement Syndrome

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

Newton’s third law of motion states that in nature for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. It can operate in politics, too. Looking ahead, it’s possible that Republicans in 2018 and President Trump in 2020 could win based on solid achievements. But their chances will be better if Democrats can’t shake off their bad case of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Ted Cruz speaks out on Senate inertia, ruling class makes lame excuses

The Republican “team” isn’t going to get anywhere by sitting on their hands and waiting for November to be over so they’ll know if they’re still in the majority or not. Senator Ted Cruz is the type of leader the GOP needs – the party should govern now like there’s no tomorrow.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ guaranteed jobs proposal would savage American work ethic

Government can’t provide what it doesn’t possess nor can legally obtain. Democrats’ promising everyone a guaranteed job is not only unconstitutional, it’s impractical and would completely undermine the American work ethic. Perhaps most disturbing is the media’s acceptance of the scheme as serious.

I Cannot Handle All This Winning

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Democrats cannot afford to lose their lock on the minority vote – but minorities are now openly asking the question that terrifies liberals: “What have you done for us lately besides run your Chardonnay-guzzling mouths?” Don’t be down. Don’t be discouraged. We’re winning. And somewhere, in a dark room, Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit sits sucking down tumblers of Canadian Club and dreaming of the American Venezuela that might have been.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Americans need to see if Jim Jordan could make difference for the GOP

Jim Jordan is just the type of new leader who could really make a difference this year – not only in the upcoming midterm elections but also by helping accomplish the draining of the swamp. Here’s thinking voters would respond positively to the opportunity Jordan represents in this regard.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Dems’ false delusions poisoned political debate in America today

Democrat elites’ contempt for average Americans is sometimes well-hidden but crops up often. Washington swamp creatures know (or care) little about the struggles of the common folk – and with the tone of political debate deteriorating by the moment, there’s scant hope it will ever improve.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Feckless Congress forces Trump’s attention to the foreign policy realm

With Republicans’ attention dominated by the 2018 midterm elections it will likely take a major foreign policy breakthrough to get President Trump noticed this year. Trump is accomplishing what he can through executive authority – conservatives must pressure Congress to do the rest.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Celebrities and pols who won’t stand for values are life’s biggest wimps

Standing up for what you believe in takes a lot of guts. Whether it’s Shania Twain, a person answering a public opinion survey or a United States senator there’s always going to be someone criticizing you. How you defend your values reveals a lot about your character and judgement.

Senator Rand Paul Chooses Policy Over Politics On Pompeo Vote

The easy political move for Senator Paul would have been to vote “NO” on Mike Pompeo and claim it was a vote based on principle, the tougher and better move for the country, and Senator Paul’s policy goals, was to get the commitments on policy and vote “YES.”

Outsiders vs. Insiders: NeverTrumpers cling to hope Trump will fall on his face ahead of 2020

The president can’t be blamed for Congress’s inability to push through conservative agenda items. Trump is far from perfect but he’s tried every means possible to get things moving. Instead of plotting a possible 2020 challenger, his GOP enemies should be putting more pressure on Capitol Hill.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Why we should intervene and tell Hillary why she’d never be president

Democrats tried the “first woman president” thing with Hillary Clinton in 2016. Being female simply isn’t enough of a basis to stake a candidacy. Americans might not be the most sophisticated political actors in the world, but they aren’t stupid…at least half of them, anyway.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Bullying by bullhorn is no way for leftists to win political arguments

The left’s agenda will not allow radical groups to take a seat in order to make the Democrats they support look more mainstream ahead of this year’s midterm elections. When it comes to making the GOP and Trump look “normal” there’s nothing better than a gathering of leftists with bullhorns.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Comey’s insult of the GOP rings like a compliment to conservatives

Not everything is as it appears on the surface. James Comey’s backhanded slap at the GOP was actually a positive thing for Republicans, just as a change in leadership in the House is entirely necessary to ensure good legislation sees the light of day. For conservatives, change couldn’t come fast enough.

The whining party’s scare tactics

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

It’s economic policy that makes the difference for women and their families. We all deserve serious policy proposals and action that results in meaningful, direct change. We’re getting that with Mr. Trump’s policy and legislation. With the Democrats, we get warnings of death and destruction. Perhaps they’re finally being honest about what their agenda has to offer.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Comey flareup proves the DC swamp isn’t even close to being drained

Donald Trump came to Washington in order to shake the system to its core and wrest power away from the swamp dwellers who’d polluted the water for decades. As the recent Comey episode proves, the work is just beginning – there’s an awful lot of slime to scrape off the sidewalks.
