Democrats

The Politics of 'Special Prosecutors'

Setting aside the astonishing idea that the Democratic Party would hold the nation’s top law enforcement agency hostage to its own political agenda, the idea that a “special prosecutor” is needed implies that a crime worthy of prosecution is known to have been committed.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: The Democrats’ Comey rage is a tale told by idiots signifying nothing

Democrats have gone completely overboard once again on this Comey/Russia/Special Prosecutor matter and people will notice. The truth is out there somewhere and eventually the Democrats will either have to produce a Russia smoking gun or surrender their holster.

Students’ Insult to DeVos Embarrasses HBCUs

Jonathan David Farley, American Greatness

Democrats have lost their way. The cities they have led for decades, and the school systems within them, have failed. As President Trump said, they offer nothing but carnage and failure. Of course, the Democrats counsel patience, so their leaders can preserve their riches, preserve their chokehold on urban residents, and condemn those children to illiteracy, joblessness, and homelessness. Betsy DeVos has the answers, and they are simple. That does not mean they are easy–each new generation must find the courage to fight.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Make no mistake, hate fuels the left’s outrage machine, not Trump

If this is the best we can expect from our political system in the era of Trump it’s time to stop mincing words and label the “resistance” for what they truly are – anarchists and traitors. They won’t be bargained with and even when you give them what they want they still act “outraged.”

Message to Republicans: Don’t Fall for Media Tricks on Comey

Rush Limbaugh, The Rush Limbaugh Show

I have a message for the Republicans: The last thing you should do is find anything in common with the Democrats on this. The last thing you should do is feel sorry, simpatico. Do not fall for the temptation to join the Democrats in their rants against Trump on this. Here’s the deal, folks. There is no collusion. The Russians did not hack, did not tamper, did not impact the outcome of our election. It’s been established for over nine months, if not longer.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Republicans should not fear the big bad (Democrat) wolf in 2018

There are a lot of factors – some known, some unknown – that will drive the 2018 elections. Republicans would be wise to let the Democrat taunts, threats and campaign “advice” go right on by. Stick to their nationalizing-the-election guns and good things will happen.

Shut The Chuck Up

Scott McKay, The American Spectator

Schumer’s antics open a window into something else that ought to be obvious to all, which is this: If your beliefs are solely driven by opposition to people you hate, your rationality and logic — and shortly thereafter, your credibility — will suffer horribly for it. Schumer’s constituents might not get that. The rest of the country will. If this is the best he can do, he’ll be the leader of an even smaller Senate minority after the next election.

Democrats see 'Nixonian' coverup in Trump's move to fire James Comey

W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

President Trump's bombshell decision to fire FBI Director James Comey Tuesday evening led to Democratic suspicions that Trump's real goal was to hamper the probe into his alleged ties to Russia, and revived demands for a special prosecutor to carry out that investigation. Many Democrats were openly claiming it was a brazen Trump cover-up of historic proportions.

Trump Strikes A Blow For The Rule Of Law

The firing of James Comey is a much-needed corrective to the Obama – Comey cult of government by personal whim and an important step toward the reestablishment of the rule of law; it should be applauded by all Americans.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: To drain the swamp Trump needs good people to work the pumps

The creatures in this case are even more formidable than the reptiles in a real bog. Their weapons are federal statues, regulations and the court system as well as an army of self-interested politicians who will say anything to sway public opinion in their favor.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Why guilt-free liberals won’t let Hillary’s 2016 election loss pass away

The 2016 election won’t die because liberals won’t let it go. It wouldn’t have mattered if Trump won the popular vote in addition to the Electoral College, liberals would have found some other rationale for discontent. In their continuing protests they reveal no guilt whatsoever.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Work continues on constructing a genuinely conservative GOP

Regardless of the good feelings of some House members, last week was not a good one for the GOP. The disastrous betrayal of the leadership over the budget tarnished anything positive that could have resulted from the final coming together over healthcare. There’s danger ahead, too.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Wretched GOP leaders are already blighting Donald Trump’s legacy

If GOP leaders want to partake in a circular firing squad even after Trump figured out a way to win a national election, that’s their own doing. The party suffers unity issues because it’s leaders care a lot more about getting re-elected than they do about governing principles.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Trump’s need for approval is not hindering his presidency in the slightest

Trump represents change and wants to put his stamp on the positive things that are occurring in the country. Part of it is due to his intrinsic desire to be liked and appreciated; part of it is because a new direction is desperately needed. America wins in either scenario.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: A government shutdown is the best thing that could happen to the GOP

The only thing that will break this political monotony is a government shutdown. Not even the election of President Trump broke the trend. We hope he will come to his senses and lay it on the line for Ryan, McConnell and the GOP “centrists” who are damming up the process.

Democrats are doubling down on failure

Marc Thiessen, New York Post

The Democrats’ unrelenting, hyperventilating obstruction of Trump has sent a crystal-clear message to Obama-Trump voters: We don’t hear you. We loathe your president and all of you who put him into office. And we’re going to show you what you can do with your Trump vote, by doing everything in our power to undermine the man you elected.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Political inexperience proving no disqualifier for President Trump

President Trump may have fallen short of fulfilling some or most of the promises he made during the campaign, but if choosing an inexperienced outsider means we get the chance to toss out the ruling class in the process, I’ll take a political novice as president every time.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Beyond 100 days, Trump’s main opponent remains The Swamp

President Trump’s post 100-day momentum will be sustained only through conservatives and Republicans working together as a team to generate policies that are popular and effective across the country. If the economy improves, so will Trump’s approval numbers.

Tax Reduction and Reform: President Trump Goes After The Swamp

Reducing the tax burden on businesses will encourage long-term investment, make them more competitive and help get our economy growing and creating private sector jobs. This is the tax plan that the American people supported when they elected President Trump, so Speaker Ryan and House Republicans would do well to give it their full support.
