Outsiders vs. Insiders: Establishment media is ringmaster to the American political ‘circus’

The “circus” atmosphere engulfing American politics is the result of a political establishment desperate to resist all forms of change and the man who’s altering the rules in Washington. To the elites, losing power means surrendering their livelihoods – they won’t go down without a fight.

The Party of Kaepernick

Kyle Smith, National Review

Democrats would be wise to decline to take Trump’s bait here, and to inform the public that they’re on our side, not with the petulant millionaire athletes and the newly crowned king of Nike endorsements. The entire controversy is an opportunity for the party to prove it stands with a broad swathe of the country, rather than the elites who disgust so many ordinary Americans. But, then again, the Democrats rarely miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: 9/11 cost us more than buildings and lives – it stole our national soul

Much has changed since 9/11/01, not the least of which is a loss of patriotism and devotion to the founding principles of the United States. Much of the deterioration is due to political correctness and our elected leaders’ lack of willingness to fight diligently for truth. Will we ever get it back?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Will the sad shaming of Kavanaugh ignite fury in the GOP grassroots?

Americans aren’t stupid. Good people recognize what’s going on in Washington and the states – a coordinated effort to thwart President Trump, Brett Kavanaugh and those who would Make America Great Again. Now is the time for the conservative grassroots to let itself be heard.

I Really Don’t Feel Like Submitting To Socialist Tyranny. Do You?

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

The socialists seem to assume that there’s not going to be any pushback from all these millions of Normal Americans who are going to fund this latest socialist experiment (Remember, this time, under these geniuses, socialism will totally work – it’s due for a win!). We’ll sort of shrug and just give up our stuff, and our freedom, to a bunch of 20-something adolescents because…the 20-something adolescents really want us to. Nah.

The Kavanaugh Hearing: A Democrat Campaign Circus

Over the course of the long journey to 2020, the Kavanaugh hearings were just one small step toward the Democratic presidential nomination and Booker and Harris, while they often looked like clowns to conservatives, put on the show that the new Far Left Democratic Party’s primary voters crave.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Who’s more ‘careless with the truth,’ Donald Trump or his enemies?

In today’s political environment people see the concept of “honesty” differently. One side sees the other as “careless with the truth” while themselves pursuing an investigation into a matter that was fabricated from the outset. Honestly speaking, things will never change in the swamp.

Senate Democrats Prove They’re Unfit to Govern

David Catron, The American Spectator

The confirmation of a Supreme Court Justice is a serious undertaking. But the Democrats have shown themselves to be utterly irresponsible in the discharge of their constitutional duties in this process. Their frivolous objections to proceeding with the hearings, despicable coordination with protesters whose antics were so disgusting that the nominee had to remove his children from the room, and their lack of real concern for any issue unrelated to removing the President from office reveal that the Democrats are too corrupt to be trusted with real power anytime soon.

Eminently qualified Kavanaugh and embittered Democrats

Cal Thomas, Washington Times

Judge Kavanaugh enjoys bipartisan support outside the Senate, but that won’t matter. It’s all about politics now, not the Constitution or the law. Judge Kavanaugh is likely to win confirmation, but the behavior of some senators may further sour the public’s view of Washington. Whether the hearings will affect voter turnout in November is unknown. Pollsters predict doom for Republicans, but their record of failure with past forecasts (note the 2016 election) does not give them much credibility.

Democrats wage a losing battle over Kavanaugh

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

It’s easy to dismiss the theatrical hijacking as nothing more than politics as usual. But that would be a mistake because, with apologies to Shakespeare, in this case the sound and fury signify something. It marked the moment when there was no longer a meaningful difference between the aim of elected Democrats and their unelected supporters in the audience. They were united in their determination to shut down the process because they both believe that if they can’t win, the game should be canceled.

By Whom Would You Want To Be Judged: Brett Kavanaugh Or Senate Democrats?

By whom would you want to be judged; someone who is bound by the plain meaning of the Constitution, the statutory law and Supreme Court precedent, or someone who, like the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee, will judge you according to their own personal whims and political goals?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: No way Democrats deny Kavanaugh his rightful seat on the high Court

Brett Kavanaugh will uphold the Constitution. Just a few months ahead of what will evolve into the 2020 presidential race we shouldn’t expect Democrats to behave themselves. They’re going all out to depict Kavanaugh as a hater – and they’re looking awful stupid in the process.

Lying About Brett Kavanaugh's Civil Rights Record

J. Christian Adams, PJ Media

The Kavanaugh hearing reminds us that rules involving elections are the focus of a well-funded fight apart from policy debates. One side will tell half the story, disrupt, rely on alarmist scare tactics, and run to federal courts to employ novel fringe legal theories in order to elect more Democrats. The other side -- this week represented by Brett Kavanaugh -- respects the boundaries of the Constitution and is unwilling to exert an out-of-bounds judicial power to achieve partisan outcomes.

Judge Kavanaugh will be confirmed without a hitch

Rgoer Kimball, The Spectator

With 50 Republicans to 49 Democrats, Republicans have a majority. Yes, it’s a slim, but absent any party ‘mavericks’ like John McCain, I do not foresee any defections. And that being the case, I predict that at least a few Democrats from purple or red-trending states, will decipher the handwriting on the wall and, concluding that they have lost this battle, will seek to curry favour with their constituents and vote to confirm this ostentatiously well-qualified candidate.

Indoctrination Saturation

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

A new politicized borg ferrets out every aspect of our lives. Nothing is safe, nothing sacred. Dead or alive, the relentless social-justice messaging continues. Like some sort of time machine, we go back in time to alter history as if a few corrections and adjustments will change and thus improve the entire present. Progressive politics seeks to connect and energize us as millions of shared malignant cells inside a metastasizing tumor — or to destroy us in the attempt.

The Democratic Party's true, and violent, believers

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

In-N-Out and The Red Hen are two discrete events, they represent the core attitude of what has become the Democratic Party and liberal activism in this country. They lose politically because Americans are rejecting their policies, and without the ability to persuade, their instinct is to bully, intimidate and harm. Make no mistake, this is the Democratic platform, it will only get worse, and people of good character must call it out and reject it for what it is.

Democrats Flameout, Kavanaugh Shines At Confirmation Hearing

This is what Americans voted for in 2016: "If confirmed to the Supreme Court, I will keep an open mind in every case. I will do equal right to the poor and to the rich. I will always strive to preserve the Constitution of the United States and the American Rule of Law." Judge Brett Kavanaugh

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Frustrated American pols fruitlessly seek help for Trump obsession

President Trump occupies the minds of both Democrats and Republicans these days. With two months to go until the midterm elections – and the 2020 presidential campaign starting just after – Trump shows no signs of relinquishing his position as leader of the American political scene.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Asinine flag protests & boycotts translate to GOP wins on Election Day

As we head into the post-Labor Day campaign season it’s clear the left is not offering a ceasefire in the culture war to further the prospects of Democrat candidates. Conservatives must see the ongoing NFL flag protests and In-n-Out burger boycott as an invitation to beat them in two months.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Trump’s pro-American worker push makes Labor Day a time to celebrate

Labor Day is a time to step back and celebrate work and enjoy the fruits of our exertions. Americans are fortunate to have a leader like President Trump who isn’t afraid to do what it takes to give us more of a good thing – jobs and paychecks. There’s plenty of political strife to come.
