The GOP Establishment Is About To Blow-Up The Pro-Growth Tax Plan

We urge CHQ readers to call their Representative and Senators through the Toll-Free Capitol Switchboard at 1-866-220-0044. Tell them to lower the corporate tax rate to 20 percent, keep the special rate for repatriation at 12 percent and to keep the focus of the tax reform bill on job creation and economic growth, not class warfare.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Spare the sex lectures, bring back the Founders’ morality and religion

John Adams was right – the Constitution can only thrive among a moralistic and religious people. If America is to be brought down it will occur from the inside-out. Our political leaders would do well to take Adams’ words to heart and act accordingly before it’s too late.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Roy Moore’s holier-than- thou critics prove elections have consequences

Regardless of one’s personal opinions on candidates, elections do have consequences – President Donald Trump is an excellent example. Good policy follows from sound votes – don’t let the integrity-less naysayers like Jeff Flake convince you otherwise. Vote for Roy Moore on Tuesday.

In a political world gone topsy-turvy, Mike Pence is the party leader

Salena Zito, Washington Examiner

Despite Mike Pence's creation of his own fundraising PAC, an unprecedented move by a vice president in modern American politics, this is not a coup. Instead, it is a smart strategic move by a White House aware that Trump’s strengths are in being a party leader or party builder — but a man willing to go to places where no Republican showed up before and ask in his own unique way for their vote. Conversely, Pence’s strength lies as the more traditional party leader and party builder roles held by the commander in chief.

Trump Fulfills Promise To Jews And Christians: Moves US Embassy To Jerusalem

While previous presidents have made moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem a major campaign promise, they failed to deliver. Yesterday, Donald Trump delivered on his promise to Christians and Jews and announced the historic move.

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.

Jerusalem: Trump and Congress Challenge the Palestinians to Grow Up

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Anyone who actually cares about the Palestinians as people should welcome what America is doing now. It is perhaps the last best chance for the Palestinians to grow up, break free of their endless pattern of self destruction, and give up looking for excuses for another pointless intifada. Unfortunately, too many of those players enjoy the status quo, profit from it, or resist change in general, like the self-righteous European leadership.

The FBI-Led Coup Against President Trump

It is time for Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray to recover control of their agencies before the soft coup being led by Robert Mueller, James Comey and rogue FBI agent Peter Strzok engenders a real constitutional crisis.

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.

Is Michael Flynn’s Defection a Death Blow?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

As last Friday’s sudden 300-point drop in the Dow reveals, if Trump’s enemies bring him down, they will almost surely crash the markets and abort the recovery that took hold in his first year. And if the establishment, repudiated by Trump’s victory, thinks they will be restored to the nation’s good graces if they destroy Trump, they are whistling past the graveyard.

It Is Now an Obstruction Investigation

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

I continue to believe accusations of abuse of power is the real danger for President Trump: A report by the special counsel, either through the grand jury or some other vehicle, concluding (a) that the president had obstructed the FBI’s investigation of Flynn and of Trump-campaign collusion with Russia, and (b) recommending that the matter be referred to Congress for consideration of next steps, potentially including impeachment and removal.

Media meltdown and the damage it does to democracy

Editors, Washington Examiner

These biases and the inability of reporters to suppress them long enough to do a good job, prompts proper public doubt about everything the national news media say. This is bad. It's very bad. The press is in the First Amendment because it — we — are needed to hold the powerful to account. We can’t do that if the people don’t trust us. After this weekend, asking the people to trust the press is a lot harder.

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.”

Trump endorses Roy Moore: 'We need his vote' in Senate

Anna Giaritelli, Washington Examiner

President Trump on Monday tweeted support for GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore, ending a weeks-long refusal by the White House to explicitly endorse the judge. "Democrats refusal to give even one vote for massive Tax Cuts is why we need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama. We need his vote on stopping crime, illegal immigration, Border Wall, Military, Pro Life, V.A., Judges 2nd Amendment and more. No to Jones, a Pelosi/Schumer Puppet!" Trump tweeted Monday morning.

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.

The Unintended Consequences of the Steinle Decision

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The real villains in the Kate Steinle story are the San Francisco politicians who made the rules that prevented ICE from removing the already five-time deported criminal Zarate from the country. These SF pols already had Kate's murder forever on their consciences, what they have of them anyway. Now they will also have to deal with the growing disgust of the American public and an administration that loathes these politicians, backed up by a Supreme Court that will ultimately be on the side of that administration for most actions it might take.

Trump Tweets Order To DOJ: Will Sessions Override Corrupt Dems And Comply?

As much as we respect Attorney General Jeff Sessions, President Trump wasn’t elected, and he wasn’t appointed Attorney General, to continue the Obama-era policies of defying congressional subpoenas. If Jeff Sessions can’t get his underlings to comply with Congressional subpoenas heads should roll – either theirs or his.

Outsider Mike Braun Charging Ahead In Indiana GOP Senate Primary

Outsider businessman Mike Braun yesterday released his second television and radio advertising flight of the campaign, titled “Outsider.” The ads will run statewide on broadcast television and radio. Braun is vying for the GOP nomination to take on first-term Democratic Senator Joe Donnelly.

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.

Why Mike Pence is the most important man in America

Arthur Herman, Fox News

President Trump needs to make full use of the unique resource sitting in the vice presidential mansion. The election of Donald Trump was a political earthquake. What we all need now is someone who can sift through the rubble, give comfort to the survivors, but also prepare the way for reconstruction on new more solid foundations. Not many of us have a destiny; Mike Pence may be one who does.
