'Are You Comfortable Tear-Gassing Children?'

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

All NBC wanted here was tabloid-ish anti-Trump propaganda — that Trump is "comfortable with tear-gassing children." What prompted the tear gas is unimportant. In fact, it sounds worse for Trump when you fake your news by excluding it. Creating chaos — and "iconic" photos — was the point of the caravan organizers. It's emotionally manipulative to the core, and the actual context of the photo only gets in the way of the propaganda. This isn't "Nightly News." It's a mudslinging political advertisement.

Another government report is dead wrong on fragile state of our planet

Stephen Moore, The Hill

What scientists always leave out of their conclusions is the power of human ingenuity, intelligent discovery, and technological improvement to advance our progress. It turns out that humans do not reproduce like field mice. It turns out that food and energy production always outpace depletion. Solutions to the problems of nature, like the hundreds of thousands of years of climate change, almost always come from the private sector and free enterprise, not from politicians or organizations seeking to expand authority through “collective” action.

Trump Wins The First Battle Of San Ysidro

While the troops are defending the southern border, there is another battle going on in Washington over funding the border wall and it remains to be seen if Republicans in the House and Senate will have the same resolve to win that battle that the President displayed at San Ysidro.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Mia Love and Trump are both right: Republicans could stand to talk more

Perhaps Mia Love was right – Trump would do better to establish relationships rather than offering “convenient transactions.” One can only hope the next two years contains a lot less mutual criticism and a lot more cooperation and teamwork from Republicans. Something to learn for everyone.

How Did Shane End Up? The GOP's suburban crisis under Trump

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Suburban dwellers seem embarrassed, of late, that the solutions to these once intractable dilemmas came from someone with a dubious past and a habit of saying and doing things incompatible with their own suburban norms. And they are learning that Trump can no more stop tweeting or ridiculing than Shane could put down his guns. Whether Trump rides out wounded in 2020 or 2024, he will likely do so as a lonely figure — and perhaps he will not be appreciated or even especially missed by the very people he benefitted.

Streisand accuses Trump of misogyny while liberals turn on their own

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

Barbra Streisand is following on the heels of her hero Hillary Clinton by condemning women who voted for Mr. Trump as mindless sheeple. She said, “A lot of women vote the way their husbands vote; they don’t believe enough in their own thoughts. Maybe that woman who’s so articulate, so experienced and so fit for the presidency [Hillary] was too intimidating.” Ms. Streisand could serve as even a more serious role model for liberals everywhere by not allowing a complete stranger, whom she loathes, to control what she eats and how she treats her body. Just a thought.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Don’t cave, Republicans, America can’t afford new federal entitlement$!

The last thing Republicans should do ahead of 2020 is make hasty decisions about changing course midstream and then start acting like Democrats to pass another big federal entitlement program (like paid family leave). Will Democrats help by pushing the needle a little too far? Time will tell.

Trump is Right About Judges And Roberts Is In Denial

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Instead of speaking the painful the truth, Chief Justice Roberts chose to attack the one guy who was telling it like every single one of us know it is. Instead of calling on his robed solons to do the hard work of applying the law and not their personal policy preferences, Chief Justice Roberts compounded the problem that is undermining the judiciary.  Getting mad at Trump (and, by extension, the half of America that supports him) for pointing out that the judge has no robe is the most establishment thing ever.

Go Big Mr. President: Close The Southern Border

We applaud President Trump’s commitment to securing our southern border and urge the President to go big and close the entire border to assure that this well-planned invasion does not succeed. We urge all CHQ readers and friends to call the White House (202-456-1111) to let President Trump know you are with him on border security.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: When the media isn’t the ‘enemy of the people’ it’s boring us to death

It almost seems the bored American media searches for topics when it reports on a possible 2020 Jeff Sessions conflict with Trump, the ever-revolving soap opera of John Kasich and Nancy Pelosi’s wish-list for the upcoming Congress. An anxious public awaits political news of substance.

Are the Saudi Princes True Friends?

Patrick J. Buchanan, Townhall

The 633-word statement of President Donald Trump on the Saudi royals' role in the grisly murder of Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi is a remarkable document, not only for its ice-cold candor. Trump is president because he promised to extricate us from the Mideast wars into which some of his closest advisers, along with some of our closest "allies," helped to plunge his country. Is President Trump about to replicate President Bush's folly?

Far Left Judges Starting A New Civil War

The ongoing insurrection against the duly elected government of the United States isn’t being led by the violent Far Left thugs of Antifa, nor is it being led by power-hungry Democrats on Capitol Hill – it is being led by black-robed revolutionaries working from federal courthouses, especially in the California-centered Ninth Circuit.

Is Chief Justice John Roberts Naïve Or Disingenuous?

Is Chief Justice Roberts’ claim that “We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges” naive or was it a disingenuous defense of the role liberal activist judges have played in undermining the results of the 2016 presidential election?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrat oversteps put Donald Trump in charge of his own 2020 destiny

There are still over 700 days to go until the 2020 election. Time might be getting short for Democrat presidential hopefuls to put their campaigns together, but there’s a world of chances for President Trump to make his case before the public. Is Trump in trouble? A wise man wouldn’t bet on it.

Let’s Give Thanks For Leftists Being Themselves

There’s much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving; a world at relative peace, a booming U.S. economy and a President who has worked hard to lift the heavy hand of government from the backs of America’s working families. But let’s not forget to also give thanks for the power of truth, as Democrats, through their own words, slowly disclose who they really are.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Thanksgiving in the DC swamp means asking ‘What have I got to lose?’

Heading into Thanksgiving, most Americans probably think the only thing they have to lose is a few pounds after the four-day holiday, but Republicans and Democrats face different dilemmas on the political front. The GOP would benefit from acting boldly…what have they got to lose?

The Mad, Mad Meditations of Monsieur Macron

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

While critiquing nationalism, Macron nonetheless talks and acts as though he is an insecure French chauvinist of the first order. Monsieur Macron posed as the European grandee implicitly schooling Donald Trump on the lessons of history and political science — and therein proved only that his supposed elite education and professional training proved no substitute for common sense, a basic understanding of history, and some practical experience in the world as it is.

A Very Trump Thanksgiving

While few in Washington’s elite salons will offer their thanks for the election of Donald Trump or for his herculean effort during the midterms, we believe among the millions of America’s working families who want nothing more than to be left alone to live their lives as they see fit, and pass on to their children the fruits of their labors, he will be honored this Thanksgiving.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If Democrats never move to the center, why should Republicans do it?

Donald Trump won’t ever stop fighting and he’ll never surrender. It’s not in his DNA to give ground and the Democrats will keep pushing their socialism and extremism to their own detriment. The next two political years will be critical to our future – but aren’t they always?
