Navigating the Middle East Mess Left by Obama and Bush

If President Trump is serious about countering Iranian aggression and repairing the mess in the Middle East left by Obama and Bush, then steps must be taken across the region, otherwise Iran will assert political and economic dominance over the entire northern tier of the Middle East and become the Middle East’s Shi’ite superpower.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Lauer is just the latest establishmentarian destroyed by his own libido

Matt Lauer is gone and people will get over it. The real question now is where does all the “inappropriate sexual behavior” end and how do we determine who’s telling the truth? Harvey Weinstein unknowingly opened Pandora’s Box and there’s no way to seal and lock it again.

Trump's Fate

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

It may be that it was not just Trump’s conservative populist message but also Trump himself, the unique populist loudmouth messenger, who won the Electoral College. Trump prevailed not only because he appealed to the concerns of flyover country, but also because he voiced these concerns in a way that no other Republican would have.

Media Are Wrong To Say Trump’s ‘Pocahontas’ Insult Of Warren Is Racist

Mollie Hemingway, The Federalist

The typical insult for Warren among her critics isn’t Pocahontas, but “Fauxcahontas.” For some reason Trump just goes with Pocahontas. These are not insults of Native Americans, but of people falsely claiming to be Native Americans. And one need not be that smart to understand that. It’s a low bar, yet one that a press corps engaged in pie trutherism over the weekend might be unable to meet.

The Jonestown GOP

In its blind failure to recognize its dire peril if it fails to pass tax reform, Capitol Hill’s Republican establishment is beginning to look a lot like the unfortunate souls at Jonestown who “drank the Kool-Aid” and committed mass suicide.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If GOP tax reform fails, prepare the way for President Bernie in 2020

It’s fair to surmise Bernie Sanders will never be president. With that being said, the GOP still has a long way to go in selling its tax plan and the benefits of the Trump agenda to the public. It could begin with passing a tax cut/reform bill by Christmas. As for the rest, wait and see.

The Swamp Moves To Keep Its Power At The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

The Constitution is clear that the President is head of the Executive Branch of government, and as such the appointment of Mick Mulvaney as Acting Director is a welcome, and constitutional, step toward restoring the accountability and transparency that was missing when the CFPB was created.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Should Kaepernick be used to highlight contrasts between R’s & D’s?

Conservatives should learn from the failures of the establishment and use things like Colin Kaepernick’s Un-Thanksgiving Day protest to highlight the differences between the two parties. Instead of wasting time and resources attacking conservatives, GOP leaders should get real and go after the true enemy.

Trump’s assault on the administrative state will benefit America

Chuck DeVore, Fox News

President Trump has asked Congress to reduce and simplify our tax system in what would be the first major tax reform in 31 years. If successful, it would unshackle the American economy as much as will regulatory reform.  While regulators, their rules, and a complex tax code take their toll on jobs and prosperity, excessive federal spending also plays a part in misallocating scarce resources.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How conservatives can channel Gen. Patton (& Vince Lombardi) in 2018

General George S. Patton provides salient advice for conservatives in today’s day and age. People like Mitch McConnell are all too willing to let the “body” (the ruling class culture) influence what the “mind” (the voters) is going to do. As conservatives we have our cultural filters and will decide on our own.

You Are The Conservative Leader You Have Been Waiting For

On Monday a group of forty-four conservative leaders issued a letter to Congress demanding that Capitol Hill's Republican majority make good on their campaign promises to cut wasteful spending, rebuild our national defense, stop amnesty, build the wall and finally repeal Obamacare. You can add your signature to the letter by clicking this link.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: On Thanksgiving 2017, a modern mixed bag of things to be grateful for

Like it or not, Thanksgiving isn’t what it used to be. While there remain plenty of great things to be thankful for this year, the vast majority of the political class isn’t one of them. President Trump may not be a perfect human being but there’s little doubt he’s immensely superior to the alternatives.

H.R. McMaster called Trump an 'idiot' and a 'dope' at private dinner: Report

Melissa Quinn, Washington Examiner

White House national security adviser H.R. McMaster reportedly said President Trump had the intelligence of a "kindergartner" and called him an "idiot" and a "dope" during a private dinner over the summer in Washington. Sources told BuzzFeed that McMaster mocked Trump’s intelligence during a dinner in July with Safra Catz, the CEO of software company Oracle.

44 Conservative Leaders to Congress: NOW will you listen to us?

Forty-four conservative leaders, including CHQ Chairman Richard A. Viguerie, wrote to the GOP Congress telling them the American people took seriously their campaign promises. They should cut wasteful spending, rebuild our national defense, stop amnesty and finally repeal Obamacare.

Restoration Of The Rule Of Law: Sessions Ends Obama-Era Backdoor Law Making

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has ended the lawless policy of the Obama administration when Attorneys General Eric Holder and Lorretta Lynch issued “guidance” almost at will to circumvent Congress and the checks and balances built into our Constitution.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Are Trump’s tweets truly starting to wear thin with the American public?

This month’s elections should serve as a wakeup call for Trump and the GOP but the Twitter “wars” will only matter so much once it becomes evident the party’s policies are benefitting the economy. Trump may not make America Great Again via Twitter, but people may sense it’s happening in spite of it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: In the great battle for integrity, who wins, Neil Gorsuch or Al Franken?

The two political sides will continue to accuse each other of disqualifying transgressions that could conceivably bring government business to a standstill. Both sides can’t be right; thankfully conservatives have men like Neil Gorsuch to act as shining examples of integrity.

Fight Election Fraud on Indian Reservations: Email The White House Today!

On Indian Reservations there is little or no accountability, no oversight or enforcement authority of a state Secretary of State on Election Day, and to be blunt, that is exactly how Democratic Senator Jon Tester became a Senator in 2007, and remains in office to this day.

Why no one is talking about Trump’s game-changing deal

Salena Zito, New York Post

Donald Trump heralded his success last year when he brought jobs back to the Carrier plant in Indianapolis even before he was president and tweeted out his victory, leading to blanket media coverage. This time, he failed to celebrate a win and the news was happily ignored. Trump needs to remember that his megaphone isn’t just for the haters, but for the voters who are desperate to finally see real change.

Job Creation First, Tax Reform Second In House Tax Bill

There is still a lot of work to be done to get a tax reform bill through the Senate, but the House bill is a start, and, with its extensive economic growth and job creation features, it is a better start than we initially thought it would be.
