Outsiders vs. Insiders: How NFL flag protesters helped corrupt the minds of America’s youth

No doubt the ongoing NFL protest controversy isn’t contributing to the advancement of political discourse in this country. The debasement of the American flag has already shown itself in the mindsets of young people in this country. Where do we possibly go from here?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: For the GOP Congress it’s pass tax cuts now or pay with defeats later

There is no simple answer to why the GOP underperformed in last week’s elections. Debate will go on for some time, but the grassroots’ patience isn’t unlimited and the Republicans’ control of Congress is only guaranteed for another year. Decision-time is at hand.

Stalking Horses of the Left

Walter E. Williams, CNS News

When hunting was the major source of food, hunters often used stalking horses as a means of sneaking up on their prey. They would synchronize their steps on the side of the horse away from their prey until they were close enough for a good shot. That's what blacks are to liberals and progressives in their efforts to transform America — stalking horses.

Democrats using Texas tragedy to advance agenda

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

If politicians, such as Mr. Obama and Ms. Warren, are serious about curbing this kind of violence, they would channel all of their political energies into enforcing current gun laws already on the books and doggedly striving to prevent criminals from illegally getting their hands on guns. Instead, Mr. Obama used some of the final power of his presidency to pardon more than 100 federal prison inmates who had been charged with gun crimes.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: The reemergence of Biden and Romney shows it’s déjà vu all over again

Like in a low-budget horror movie, America’s formulaic political plot seems to be repeating itself. The old villains are rising from the dead to plague the system and nothing much is getting done to alter the status quo in Washington. Maybe it’s time for the film to conclude.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Because he fights, Trump can’t be spared -- but he still must win the war

Donald Trump is no fool; one hopes he will accept the lessons of 2017 and alter his course enough to win the only political struggle remaining before him – namely, the battle to become popular. If Trump truly wants to make America great again, it’s his only means left to do it.

The Dems Are Running in Place

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Deeply invested in over-interpreting Tuesday’s results, the media seeks not to cover a 2018 “wave” but to create one by demoralizing Republicans. While the stupid party is fully capable of falling for this self-fulfilling coverage and cannibalizing its own candidates, that still won’t save the Dems, for whom much of the country remains too deplorable to recapture.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Republicans hold the key to their own success in the ‘18 midterm elections

There isn’t much use in trying to forecast what will happen in next year’s midterm elections so far in advance. For now, conservatives should focus on the things that can be controlled: nominating good candidates and pressing to pass President Trump’s winning agenda.

Voters Sent The Republicans A Wake-Up Message

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Maybe the most powerful line in American politics is “send them a message” and on Tuesday the voters sent Republicans a series of unmistakable messages.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How Donald Trump’s epic 2016 win made America Great Again

Thoughts of Election Day 2016 still brings smiles to the faces of millions of people. Even better, in most ways, Trump has proven to be a very good if not exceptional president. It just goes to show the good guy sometimes wins – and the bad gal (and her hubby) needs to go to jail.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Virginia gubernatorial election could determine the future of history

It’s hard to see how history will prevail without political leadership determined to protect it. Virginia may survive should Democrat Ralph Northam win today, but the question then becomes how long do any of us have before political correctness rules the entire country?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Kicking John Boehner out of DC was the first step in draining the swamp

If conservative organizations and grassroots groups hadn’t put pressure on John Boehner to leave, he might still be in Washington. The only expectations Americans hold for politicians is that they keep their promises – too much to ask from members of the ruling class, apparently.

Their America, and Ours

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Asked on Fox News about what is happening today with the public insults to our national anthem and the desecration of our monuments, Justice Clarence Thomas raises questions being asked by many Americans: “What binds us? What do we all have in common anymore? … We always talk about E pluribus unum. What’s our unum now? We have the pluribus. What’s the unum?”

Outsiders vs. Insiders: To solve the U.S. opioid crisis, start by treating cultural disease first

The American opioid crisis isn’t going to be solved in doctor’s offices, treatment centers or by politicians in Washington. All of these things will help treat the symptoms, but the real “cure” lies within the minds of the people impacted and the culture that’s working overtime to debase them.

Poll: Senate Democrats Should Be Very Worried About The 2018 Elections

Henry Rodgers, Daily Caller

Only three of the ten Democratic Senators up for re-election in 2018 are above a 50 percent approval rate in states that favored President Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, according to a new poll released Wednesday. Sens. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, and Jon Tester of Montana are the only three with above a  50 percent approval rating, which is not a good sign for the future of the Democratic party, a Morning Consult poll revealed.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Ignorant and arrogant establishment proves resistant to life’s lessons

The first rule of business is to avoid offending your customers, a bit of common sense that shouldn’t need to be reinforced once experience provides the instruction. Unfortunately some in the conservative media and the NFL haven’t quite gotten the memo. Won’t they ever learn?

The Plot to Bring Down Trump

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Thus we have Free Beacon neocons, never-Trump Republicans, the Hillary Clinton campaign, the DNC, a British spy and comrades in Russian intelligence, and perhaps the FBI, all working with secret money and seedy individuals to destroy a candidate they could not defeat in a free election. The real indictment here is of the American political system, and the true tragedy is the decline of the Old Republic.

Even Some Democrats Learn That Hillary’s Political Sting Is Poisonous

John Fund, National Review

Democrats know she was a terrible candidate who now refuses to acknowledge, much less learn from, her mistakes. For nearly a year, she has more or less forced Democrats to parrot her campaign’s denials that it paid for the largely discredited anti-Trump dossier compiled by ex–British spy Christopher Steele.
