Outsiders vs. Insiders: Could today’s media report on what really happened at Pearl Harbor?

Pearl Harbor Day deserves its remembrances as a tragic event that eventually brought a nation together. Back then Americans recognized a common enemy and got to work destroying it. Journalists helped in the endeavor – they were a long way from today’s jaundiced news reporters.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: In politics is there really such thing as the ‘lesser of two evils?’

Political races should be judged on their own merits. Candidates by and large aren’t sinister and therefore can’t really be deemed “the lesser of two evils.” Roy Moore deserves a fair hearing by Alabama’s voters next week and despite what the media claims it appears as though he’ll get it.

Charlottesville antifa Whitewash continues

Mark J. Fitzgibbons, American Thinker

From the beginning of its reporting following the event, the liberal media whitewashed the DHS warning about antifa’s conspiring to engage in violence at the Charlottesville protests over planned removal of Confederate General Robert E. Lee’s statue. The reasons are pretty obvious. For one, the warning helped confirm President Trump’s statements that both sides were responsible for the violence that day, and it was premeditated on the part of antifa.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Football team analogy explains why D’s & R’s won’t ever get along

It’s nice to see GOP congressional leaders willing to play a little hardball with the budget. No doubt having Trump acting as the “coach” is giving them some additional confidence. No one but the media expects the parties to get along; whoever wins will be the best “team.”

Democrat Attorneys General Use Deceptive Fundraising For Radical Left Politics

Mark J. Fitzgibbons, Daily Caller

One deceptive email from Democrats AGs is not as troubling as their lawless behavior even before their Trump Derangement Syndrome. Now, however, they are more unhinged and see their niche as a band of litigators to uproot the rule of law and American tradition in favor of their progressive base.

General Mike Flynn’s Only Crime

In Afghanistan and at the DIA Mike Flynn proved that his adversaries were shallow, small minded and incompetent against America’s greatest enemies, but in their shallowness, small mindedness and incompetence they were still vicious enough and tenacious enough to get him.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Despite media claims the voters care about taxes, not Flynn’s FBI problem

The controversy surrounding Michael Flynn will no doubt prove to have little staying power. The GOP’s upcoming battle in conference committee over the tax bill will dominate the headlines. Media “ants” will continue their wayward scurrying but the public knows what really matters.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Media culture that accepts everything honors & appreciates nothing

No one expects much truth-telling from the media anymore but some of these recent stories have really gone over the top. Since they can’t get to Donald Trump they’re now smearing First Lady Melania. It’s all part of the larger cultural war to reclaim what was once a great America.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Lauer is just the latest establishmentarian destroyed by his own libido

Matt Lauer is gone and people will get over it. The real question now is where does all the “inappropriate sexual behavior” end and how do we determine who’s telling the truth? Harvey Weinstein unknowingly opened Pandora’s Box and there’s no way to seal and lock it again.

Democrats for Prohibition, and other absurdities

Editors, Washington Examiner

The common feature of the Democrats' frivolous objections is that the tax bill would help working-class people decide to live their lives the way Democrats don't want them to. As we saw in November 2016, Democrats have a hard time coping with the idea that people will defy them and make free choices. They do, and sensible people are thankful for it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If GOP tax reform fails, prepare the way for President Bernie in 2020

It’s fair to surmise Bernie Sanders will never be president. With that being said, the GOP still has a long way to go in selling its tax plan and the benefits of the Trump agenda to the public. It could begin with passing a tax cut/reform bill by Christmas. As for the rest, wait and see.

Lawless Democrats launch a coup at the CFPB

Editors, Washington Examiner

It's slam-dunk clear that Trump has the power to appoint the acting director, just as he has the power to nominate all agency heads. The Democrats' takeover attempt is entirely lawless. In being so, it perfectly fits the CFPB, a rogue agency if ever there was one. The party of the Left created it to be unaccountable and to be run by their people. So far as they are concerned, the law be damned.

In Defense of Masculinity

Ned Ryun, American Greatness

We had a friend of the family growing up who was an air traffic controller. He said if a plane started off wrong by just an inch it’d be off by miles in the end. Little choices make the man, and by degrees, people shift with daily decisions to find themselves years later miles off course. The world is a better place with masculine gentlemen. It’s just we need more of them.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Should Kaepernick be used to highlight contrasts between R’s & D’s?

Conservatives should learn from the failures of the establishment and use things like Colin Kaepernick’s Un-Thanksgiving Day protest to highlight the differences between the two parties. Instead of wasting time and resources attacking conservatives, GOP leaders should get real and go after the true enemy.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How conservatives can channel Gen. Patton (& Vince Lombardi) in 2018

General George S. Patton provides salient advice for conservatives in today’s day and age. People like Mitch McConnell are all too willing to let the “body” (the ruling class culture) influence what the “mind” (the voters) is going to do. As conservatives we have our cultural filters and will decide on our own.

The Rules Don’t Apply To Democrat Bigwigs Like Rep. John Conyers

“Your story won’t do shit to him,” said a former staffer for Democratic Rep. John Conyers. “He’s untouchable.” Based on the Bill Clinton and Al Franken precedents it looks like the former staffer is right – at least if you are a powerful Democrat.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: On Thanksgiving 2017, a modern mixed bag of things to be grateful for

Like it or not, Thanksgiving isn’t what it used to be. While there remain plenty of great things to be thankful for this year, the vast majority of the political class isn’t one of them. President Trump may not be a perfect human being but there’s little doubt he’s immensely superior to the alternatives.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Are Trump’s tweets truly starting to wear thin with the American public?

This month’s elections should serve as a wakeup call for Trump and the GOP but the Twitter “wars” will only matter so much once it becomes evident the party’s policies are benefitting the economy. Trump may not make America Great Again via Twitter, but people may sense it’s happening in spite of it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: In the great battle for integrity, who wins, Neil Gorsuch or Al Franken?

The two political sides will continue to accuse each other of disqualifying transgressions that could conceivably bring government business to a standstill. Both sides can’t be right; thankfully conservatives have men like Neil Gorsuch to act as shining examples of integrity.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Sick U.S. media culture chastises the good but makes heroes of freaks

Ben Franklin allegedly once said, “We are all born ignorant but one must work hard to remain stupid.” With the rush to judge “normal” people and believe the bizarre claims of freakish outcasts these days, there’s an awful lot of stupidity maintenance work going on in abundance.
