Donald Trump

Outsiders vs. Insiders: 50 out of 51 GOPers did right on Kavanaugh, isn’t it time to celebrate?

The left’s intimidation tactics didn’t work on Senators Collins, Graham and even Jeff Flake -- and they shouldn’t have. If America’s political system is ever to get back on track Republicans need to stick together to honor this “new” unity. Otherwise, things could get ugly really fast.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Bumbling senate Dems provide ample kindling for GOP grassroots fire

In the aftermath of the confirmation war over Brett Kavanaugh there’s a tangible feeling America has changed – and the Republican Party along with it. There’s nothing quite like watching a good man being irrationally attacked to bring out the beast in righteous people. Democrats are yet to feel the sting.

The sky isn't falling on Trump's America

Editors, Washington Examiner

Take a mental health break from social media and talk to real people, and you’re likely to realize that most of them don’t think the country is in trouble or that Trump’s presidency is a disaster. A month from now, voters are expected to follow the historic norm and repudiate the party in power. If they reprimand Republicans more gently than the Beltway media expect, we will not be surprised.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Donald Trump’s ‘doctrine of patriotism’ sets standard for world peace

Trump’s “doctrine of patriotism” will accomplish its goal of fostering world peace and prosperity among sovereign nations. Leftists and some conservative dreamers believe all the world’s peoples can be stuffed in one little box and emerge in harmony; reality says it ain’t so.

We Are All Deplorables Now

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Since Reagan's time, there are few conservatives who have not been called one or more of the names in Hillary Clinton's litany of devils, her "basket of deplorables" — racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, bigoted, irredeemable. The battle over Kavanaugh's nomination, and the disparagement of the Republicans who have stood strongest by the judge, seems to have awakened even the most congenial to the new political reality. We are all deplorables now.

Kanye's Not Alone: Blacks Are Deserting the Dems

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Bravo, Kanye, for help righting the ship. (Bravo, too, all those truly brilliant black conservatives from Thomas Sowell to Shelby Steele and my friend Larry Elder. There are more. You are true American heroes and the true heirs of Dr. King. You are the best, bar none, of our country.) And bravo, Donald Trump, as well. African-Americans have their lowest unemployment figures in decades. The welfare rolls are down, incomes are up, etc., etc. The times they really are a-changing -- and African-Americans, not surprisingly, get it.

A victory on trade

Cal Thomas, Washington Times

Past presidents of both parties have mostly bowed to globalists and other nations that have put the interests of their countries first. Mr. Trump, starting with his campaign, promised to put American interests first, not to the detriment of other countries — they also are benefitting — but to even out unfair deals that have harmed America and Americans. The best response to a policy that isn’t working, one based on flawed ideology, is to embrace a policy that works. The USMCA has the potential to do great things for the United States. There doesn’t seem to be a credible argument in opposition.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats must pay for treating Americans like addlebrained idiots

Democrats really do think we’re that dumb. They’ve turned the “advice and consent” process into a political sideshow that’s got men everywhere terrified of juvenile sins that might crop up now. We shouldn’t ever have to worry about what’s in a high school yearbook, should we? For this, Democrats must be made to pay at the ballot box.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Treachery on Kavanaugh would trigger a massive justified RINO hunt

As Lindsey Graham articulated so eloquently last Thursday, the Kavanaugh nomination is about confirming a good man to the Supreme Court, not opening the door to fantastic character assassination by self-serving politicians. Any Republican who votes no isn’t a hero – they’re a RINO goat.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Blood infatuated media fools no one with barefaced Kavanaugh slander

It's no secret the establishment media delights in reporting on pain and sleaze but the Kavanaugh episode represents a particularly egregious example. Democrats insist Republicans will pay for failing to take Christine Blasey Ford’s side of the story, but Americans see through the ruse.

A Dress Rehearsal for Impeachment

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

For what is being done to Kavanaugh is, if Democrats take control of Congress in November, a harbinger of what is to come. The assault on Kavanaugh, turning a man known for his integrity into a youthful Jack the Ripper in 10 days, is the playbook for what is planned for Trump. The Kavanaugh lynching is a dress rehearsal for the impeachment of Donald Trump. And the best way to fight impeachment is the way the judge fought on Thursday.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Republicans learning the hard way a great economy ain’t enough anymore

Objectively speaking Republicans should be doing better this year. With so many things going in their favor the public isn’t responding the way the elites hoped – but there’s still time to turn things around. The GOP can start by confirming Brett Kavanaugh, then fight like Donald Trump.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: All hail the new breed of fiercely combative and fighting Republicans

It’s hard to predict how the Kavanaugh saga ends but America’s political class received a severe jolt last week. Conservatives searched long and hard for someone other than Trump to stand up to the ugly left – and thanks to a normally calm judge and a reformed RINO senator, we finally got it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Kavanaugh is right; we now have good reason to fear for the future

If Kavanaugh goes down Trump’s strategy is still the same – send forward qualified originalist conservatives and let the Democrats keep disemboweling themselves ahead of the 2020 election. Regardless, the country will never be the same after this is all over – is it the end or a new beginning?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ sick stalking of Kavanaugh disqualifies them from humanity

Whether or not Kavanaugh’s teen history truly constitutes a “disqualifying event” Democrats and the media will treat it that way regardless. Decency and fairness are in short supply these days – if you’re Ted Cruz you can’t even go to a restaurant without being harassed. Is it sick? You decide.

Trump's sovereignty doctrine

Editors, Washington Examiner

The nation is nowhere near the point at which armed rebellion could be justified, but it has suffered a lot under rulers who failed to put America first. For those who believe that Trump’s policy is incoherent, or just a mish-mash of inherited conservative ideas with some anti-immigration and anti-trade rhetoric thrown in, this speech should make them think again. Trump has a coherent view of the world, and it’s very helpful to hear it spelled out in this way.
