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.

James Comey: Everything You Need To Know In One Line

There was one line in his written testimony that summed up everything you need to know about James Comey, why he was fired and why he was such a danger to constitutional government: "the FBI’s traditionally independent status in the executive branch."

Outsiders vs. Insiders: ‘Hard votes’ no excuse for GOP leaders to avoid pushing Trump’s agenda

We need to stop making excuses for Congress and refuse to give them an “out” for failing to do what they’re supposed to do. They are sent to Washington to take part in the process and govern the country according to the will of the People. It’s about time they started doing it.

The Madness of the Never-Trumpers

Conrad Black, The American Spectator

Kathy Griffin and Hillary Clinton are unique individuals and not too much can be projected from them onto the Never-Trumpers as a group, but there are common elements of exaggerated horror at the thought and fact of Trump as president, an impulse that practically any act of protest and rejection is permissible, and that the reason for Trump’s success could not have any legitimate element to it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Media should swallow their own Comey nothing-burger with relish

Liberals and Democrats will pull out all the stops to make James Comey’s senate testimony into a big deal, but the former FBI Director’s appearance will no doubt prove to be a nothing-burger, one that the establishment media should be made to swallow on its own.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: All hands needed on deck to defend Trump from the leftist fringe

Trump the man may not be as popular as conservatives and Republicans would hope for, but his policies are winners; so too is the president’s drive to make America great again. If recent history is any indication Trump is more than willing to do whatever it takes to get there, too.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Hillary and Joe clown act sets stage for a real 2020 Democrat sideshow

If we take up a collection to help Hillary Clinton pay for the significant amount of mental help she obviously requires we'd run into a real problem because in fairness we would need to provide the same support to every deranged liberal in America -- and that's a lot.

Viguerie thinks Dems' takeover is scary, but unlikely

Chad Groening, OneNewsNow.com

Conservative leader Richard Viguerie offers his assessment of the liberal assault on President Trump, "What the Democrats are really up to, quite frankly, is they're trying everything they can to think about how they overturn the election results," he says. "You know they're very angry people and they're doing whatever they can to reverse the election results."

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ empty plate of lies on Russia leaves them wholly unsatisfied

The left cannot be bargained with; its shock troops don’t listen to reason and don’t care in the slightest that they’re perceived as violent disruptors. They feast on chaos, which I guess helps to make up for the lack of substance they’re able to ingest in matters like the Russia probe.
