Outsiders vs. Insiders: Choosing civility over principle assures the DC swamp wins every time

More civility in politics would be a good thing but it also has its limitations. If lawmakers care more about being nice to each other than they do about advocating for their constituents the battle is already lost; there would be many chummy politicians in DC but hardly any happy Americans.

Why Democrats Really Don’t Want To Reinstate The Citizenship Question On The U.S. Census

Ben Weingarten, The Federalist

We face a situation today in which non-citizens are treated as a protected class whom our elites seems to prefer over deplorable Americans. This was perhaps the seminal meta-narrative of the 2016 presidential election that resulted in Donald Trump. But have our betters learned anything?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: DC’s Devil’s Advocates bring shame on themselves, not Donald Trump

Sooner or later the “Devil’s advocates” in each party become recognizable for what they are: contrarian voices that people more or less ignore. All the pseudo-Russia scandals in the world won’t make a difference in the long run because one way or another truth always comes to light.

Why Did the Democrats Lie So Baldly about the Memo?

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Unless they were lobotomized, those Democrats and their dependable PR team (aka the media) must have realized they were blatantly lying to the American public. Evidently, they didn't care. How're we now supposed to trust what these people say about anything? Whatever else happened, the FBI clearly used a slanderous fictional document to get a FISA ruling to surveil Carter Page without telling the court the document was a pack of lies paid for by the Clinton campaign and written by a creepy spy with old-line Soviet connections.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If politicians can’t stop saying stupid things they might as well not talk

There’s no doubt politicians have a habit of saying stupid things that get themselves and their parties in trouble on a regular basis. In times like these it would be better for political folks to say nothing at all; if that were the case America would be the envy of the entire world, indeed.

Flaunting lawlessness in the Capitol

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Astonishingly — the most galling and reprehensible “sanctuary” in the United States is not Chicago or San Francisco. It is your United States Capitol, where police policy is to refuse to help the federal government enforce illegal immigration laws. Not only are these illegal aliens given star treatment inside the Capitol, they have become the single most powerful political force in the federal government today. So much so that Democrats actually shut down the federal government on orders from these illegal aliens and their lobbyists.

Toward a Trump Republicanism

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

While Trump Republicanism has elements of other party traditions, its dominant tone is nationalist. That puts the Democratic Party, now suffused with Trump hatred and a simmering urge to relitigate or overturn the 2016 election, in danger of positioning itself as anti-nationalist. The withering contempt of many coastal Democrats for heartland Americans, who regard patriotism as normal and benign, is probably not a political asset.

Sourpuss Democrats Self-Immolate at State of the Union

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Steny Hoyer and Nancy Pelosi watching Trump's speech looked like a pair of sullen six-year olds on a sugar crash the day after Halloween. Bernie Sanders looked mummified. Schumer was slumped so deeply in his chair he was almost falling through the crack. Other Democrats, even ones who should have known better or secretly felt otherwise, sat on their hands. You could see them glancing at each other, wondering whether they were allowed to applaud or stand up. What a bunch of cowards.

The Most Important Thing Trump Said That No One Is Talking About

There was one very important “this changes everything” moment in President Trump’s State of the Union message that no one is talking about – the President’s announcement that he has signed an Executive Order on Protecting America Through Lawful Detention of Terrorists.

CHQ and Ear to the Ground Survey Reveals Trump Supporters Will Not Support President On Amnesty

Trump supporters couldn’t be clearer: 71% of his base they will no longer support the President if amnesty is included in immigration reform. However, they also said they are confident President Trump will follow-through on his campaign promises regarding immigration.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ inane SOTU spoiled brat act will not go unnoticed by voters

Trump’s SOTU address wasn’t perfect but it deserved a better reception from roughly half of those in attendance. Democrats didn’t do themselves any favors by acting like spoiled children in front of the whole world. Americans aren’t unified – but the right side is winning.

The Sound of One Aisle Clapping

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

What is the sound of one aisle clapping at the most basic and blameless expressions of nationalism, the nationalism that every functioning country on earth observes? Americans heard it Tuesday night. The Democrats couldn’t clap for the flag or fighting gangs (that elicited a groan from some of them). It couldn’t clap for the national anthem, secure borders, religious liberty, even vocational training. It saw poison everywhere, though they did perk up at Trump’s mention of second chances for criminals.

The Elephant In The Room Last Night

There were many things conservatives could applaud in last night’s State of the Union address, but the President’s eloquent paean to the economic promise of America was largely drowned-out by opposition to the notion of giving a path to citizenship to 1.8 million illegal aliens.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Trump’s first SOTU leaves Democrats speechless…and hopeless

Donald Trump may not be the messenger everyone wanted but the message is what counts these days. Trump’s first State of the Union speech should be considered a smashing success – but what else would you expect from a man who swore America would start winning again if he were elected president. Mission accomplished.

Desperation Time As Democrats Seek to Stop Trump From Succeeding

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

The simple fact is that Donald Trump’s unlikely presidency has become an unlikely success. The economy is booming. He’s doing what he promised with foreign policy and regulations. He’s outmaneuvered the Democrats again and again on illegal aliens. He’s got the momentum. And the liberals are desperate to stop him – no matter how much doing so will hurt Normal Americans.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Even Donald Trump needs an occasional reminder of who his friends are

It’s highly unlikely Donald Trump will gain many supporters among the leftist illegal alien crowd no matter what he says tonight. History proves they aren’t his friends. Therefore there’s little to be gained by reversing Trump’s campaign promise to deal with the immigration problem.

Democrats Are the New Palestinians on Immigration

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The Democrats are in the reactionary position of having to wish for or engineer an American economic failure to make their even more reactionary policies succeed. Pathetic, no? But all is not lost for them.  All they need is a little new leadership.  Perhaps Mahmoud Abbas would be willing to immigrate and come work for them. There's no one better at obstructionist policies. Of course, he'd have to stand in line.
