Outsiders vs. Insiders: Heinous spending bill leaves frustrated conservatives soul-searching

Donald Trump hates to lose but that’s exactly what’s happening with the Republican party lately. Americans sent the president and lawmakers to Washington to fight for the Constitution and their rights – not to make deals under duress from Democrats. Will it ever get better? Time will tell.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Budget sellout threatens to ‘beat the h-ll’ out of Republicans in 2018

Politics is a dirty business and street fighters like Joe Biden relish the opportunity to punch Trump in the proverbial nose (and dream about fighting him behind the high school gym). If Republicans can’t get their fiscal act together the voters might just do the same thing – for real.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: DC swamp creatures loved status quo until Trump came to town

The governmental status quo is being liquidated under President Trump and the establishment elites (and their supporters -- liberals, teens, #NeverTrumpers) hate it. The days and months ahead will be unsteady for all concerned – and some of us wouldn’t have it any other way.

The Confederate Mind

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

A century from now, our successors are likely to be as bewildered by the classifications of affirmative action and designated safe spaces as we are by segregation and “separate but equal” schools. A century after the Civil War, in reaction to the legacy of the Confederacy, progressives fought for integration; a century and a half after the Civil War, progressives are channeling the one-drop rule and advocating race-based dorms, safe spaces, and race-themed houses.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Media’s scorching of Trump and family bares desperation of the Left

There are few certainties in life but one is the media’s mission to derail the Trump presidency, which will continue unabated until he’s taken down – or leaves office after eight years. All the lurid “Stormy” Daniels tales in the world won’t give them what they ultimately desire – an end to Trump himself.

New Poll: Voters Will Reward Trump with Continued Majorities in Congress

Conservatives responding to the latest FedUp PAC poll are confident that President Trump’s voters are still behind him, with almost 89% saying that Republicans will hold their Congressional majorities in the 2018 elections.  Less than 5% expect Democrats to win a majority which would give them the votes needed for impeachment.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ rush to the finish line in November could end in a pile-up

Lucky for Republicans politics is an ever-changing game that is rarely cut-and-dried in favor of either party. If people still believe in “sure things” maybe they should ask Hillary Clinton about it. Democrats certainly have problems of their own – and there’s a long way to go until November.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If enthusiasm is key to 2018 midterms it’s time for the GOP to worry

It may not yet be time for Republicans to worry but it’s clear if they don’t improve that more elections like last week’s Pennsylvania disaster will follow. There’s still plenty of DC swamp left to drain – and they’d better get back to doing it or the base’s enthusiasm will evaporate.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How the media sold an octogenarian woman as the voice of today’s kids

No life or death issues are easy and often there are good arguments on both sides. It’s just plain arrogance on behalf of liberals like Dianne Feinstein to claim there are no reasonable alternatives to banning “assault weapons”. Political decisions have consequences indeed.

Rand Paul Stands Against Warmongers And Torturers

Principled liberty-minded Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky has announced that he will oppose the nominations Mike Pompeo and Gina Haspel, Trump’s choice for Secretary of State and Director of the Central Intelligence Agency.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: With Trump’s populism, take the (mostly) good with the (sometimes) bad

Populism has become a dirty word but only because Trump’s critics and enemies accuse him of enslaving himself to the will of the masses. Trump’s lack of core principles is problematic at times (guns and immigration) but keeping his campaign promises, on balance, is a good thing.

Larry Kudlow For White House Economic Advisor

Larry Kudlow’s personal relationship with President Trump, his credibility with conservatives and Republicans on and off Capitol Hill, and most importantly, his ability to channel President Trump instead of trying to impose his own ideas make him the ideal candidate for the job of Chairman of the National Economic Council – we strongly urge the President to select Mr. Kudlow for the position without delay.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats search for signs on how to bring down Trump in 2020

Odds are Joe Biden won’t get anywhere close to the presidency and neither will anyone from the epicenter of leftist angst, California. 2020, like every election, will depend on the candidates’ ability to generate sufficient enthusiasm to win a party nomination and then the general. The Democrats have an uphill climb.

Why the Democrats Made Such an Idiotic Tax Proposal

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

With the economy roaring as it hasn't in decades, the stock market at all-time highs, and unemployment (including for blacks and Hispanics) at all-time lows, the Democrats have just proposed to "fix things" by raising taxes. Only someone as terminally frozen in 1968 as Bernie Sanders, who has emerged as the spokesperson for the proposal, could think of this as anything less than economic suicide.

Why Democrats Would Lose the Second Civil War, Too

Kurt Schlicter, Townhall

Do I think there will be a civil war? No, but there could be. This is the Age of Black Swans, and anything is possible – we could easily see the country split into red and blue. Civil war is unlikely, but never underestimate Democrat stupidity and hatred. Democrats are 0-1 in insurrections, and if they went for another round, they would be 0-2. It’s a matter of terrain, numbers, and morale.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Trump’s meeting with Kim Jong-un is a win-win, but only for U.S.

If I were Trump the first thing I’d do is offer Kim Jong-un a big hunk of cheese instead of an olive branch. The North Koreans aren’t interested in peace as much as the opportunity to persuade the U.S. to roll back its crippling economic sanctions. We’ll see how it all turns out.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: White men can’t jump and black folks can’t swim – shouldn’t we just laugh?

The world would be a better place if we could occasionally laugh and joke the way Deion Sanders did the other day at the NFL combine. There will always be occasions to treat certain subjects seriously – but if we’re to survive as a people maybe we’d just better smile and get over it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Hey Donald Trump, how can we get you to be more like Ronald Reagan?

We all know Trump is no Ronald Reagan, nor can he ever expect to be thought of in the same light as the man who saw America as the “Shining City on a Hill.” That said, Trump deserves the leeway to achieve his own vision of making America great again. I think we should give it to him.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats won’t defeat GOP in November but complacency just might

To immunize GOP voters from the lethal complacency bug the party must run strong conservative candidates, not just rubber-stamps who will march to Mitch McConnell’s drumbeat and fail to fight for Trump’s agenda. We need boat-rockers seeking to annihilate the status quo.
