Donald Trump

The mainstream media — the lap dogs of the deep state and propaganda arm of the left

Ned Ryun, The Hill

Here’s hoping the left and the mainstream media, and excuse the redundancy, continue to defend violent gangs and terrorists, attempt image makeovers of brutal regimes like Iran and North Korea, and pretend that the overwhelming majority of Americans don’t understand that an informant is a spy. Many of us will enjoy watching that soul-sucking moment the night of Nov. 3rd, 2020 when they realize that instead of taking their Moby Dick down, they actually helped him win. Again.

Farming The Election For Speaker Of The House

The Farm Bill that failed in a humiliating defeat last week for RINO Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, was about a lot of things, but it was almost nothing about farming, or at least farming as the 98 percent of Americans who are not engaged in farming or ranching understand the term.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Want to win this year, Republicans? Support the coup against Ryan

If rumors circulated there was a “coup” in the works involving Mitch McConnell, conservatives wouldn’t require much prodding to flock to the insurgents’ banner. One way or another Republicans need new congressional leaders – a factor that would play well in this year’s elections.

The Media See Only One Collusion Story

John Fund, National Review

You’d think that Beltway reporters — many of whom are convinced that President Trump is such a menace to the country that he must be removed from office — would look into why most Americans view Mueller’s probe skeptically. You would be wrong. CBS did not even report its own poll on television. Nor did it give it anything other than the most cursory of coverage. All of this proves that media bias isn’t so much about how stories are covered with a clear slant but about how some important stories tend to be ignored because they involve “inconvenient facts.”

It’s Past Time for Mueller to Wrap Up His Investigation

Hans von Spakovsky, CNS News

If you think Trump is doing a bad job, vote against him if he’s on the ballot in 2020. Criticize his conduct and his policies between now and then. But like it or not, he was elected president of the United States. Mueller needs to wrap up his investigation, report to Congress, and then let lawmakers either act against the president or allow him to finish his term, focused on making America great again.

Kanye and Democrats

Walter E. Williams, Townhall

Democrats could never afford for a large number of black people to observe, "We've been putting you in charge of our cities for decades. We even put a black Democrat in the White House. And what has it meant for us? Plus, the president you told us to hate has our unemployment rate near a record low." It turns out that it's black votes that count more to black and white politicians than black well-being, black academic excellence and black lives. As for black politicians and civil rights leaders, if they're going to sell their people down the river to keep Democrats in power, they ought to demand a higher price.

Thanks To You RINO Paul Ryan Is Losing His Grip On The Speakership

The Republican establishment would like to make the contest for Speaker out to be a race between liberal Nancy Pelosi and RINO Kevin McCarthy – two decidedly non-conservative Californians – but that is hardly the case with over 100 conservative leaders urging principled limited government constitutional conservative Jim Jordan to run.

Stop Supporting Saudi Arabia in its War on the Yemeni People

The U.S. is at war in Yemen. Special Forces are on the ground in Saudi Arabia, while Washington is providing Riyadh’s military with munitions, targeting assistance, and aerial refueling. All to bomb a nation whose people have done nothing against Americans.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Establishment takes a whipping at the whims of the grassroots in 2018

Both parties appear to be searching for an identity (between the establishment forces of the swamp who resist change and the newer movements) and to make political leaders accountable for their promises. The internal fights will continue long after this year’s midterms – and that’s a good thing.

Trump Demands DOJ 'Fess Up About Spying On His Campaign

President Trump has dropped a bomb on the Department of Justice by demanding answers about why Stefan Halper, a long-time CIA operative with extensive links to the Bush family who was responsible for a dirty and likely illegal spying operation in the 1980 presidential election was engaged to spy on his campaign.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Post Texas, will reason prevail against the ‘Do Something!’ lynch mob?

Friday’s tragic school shooting in Texas won’t bring us any closer to solving what appears to be a growing societal quandary. There are too many issues at play to throw together a hasty “solution” that effects millions simply because the political class deems it necessary. Will common sense prevail?

A Trump Doctrine for Singapore and Beyond

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Trump ran on a foreign policy that may fairly be described as a Trump Doctrine: In the post-post-Cold War era, the United States will start looking out for America first. This does not mean isolationism or the abandonment of our allies. It does mean a review and reassessment of all the guarantees we have issued to go to war on behalf of other countries, and the eventual transfer of responsibility for the defense of our friends over to our friends. In the future, the U.S. will stop futilely imploring allies to do more for their own defense and will begin telling them that their defense is primarily their own responsibility.

Must See Rep. Jim Jordan Video

Watch this video of a speech Rep. Jim Jordan delivered yesterday and then ask yourself if Paul Ryan or John Boehner kept their promises. If you want a Speaker who will actually keep their promises, we urge you to call Rep. Jim Jordan through the toll-free Capitol Switchboard (1-866-220-0044) tell Rep. Jordan you want him to be that Speaker.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Media hypocrites way off base to jab at Mike Pence for doing his job

Donald Trump’s asking Mike Pence to be his running mate two years ago could be his best and most lasting decision, a pronouncement that continues to pay dividends to this day. Pence is the epitome of a loyal subordinate no matter what the media reports to the contrary.

Trump needs to see when the Korean glass is 80 percent full

Editors, Washington Examiner

If Trump is realistic about what Kim Jong Un will give up and what U.S. security needs require, he will see that total denuclearization is not the only acceptable outcome. This tactic, demanding 100 percent but being prepared to accept 80, is not one that comes naturally to Trump, and therein lies a danger. He is thin-skinned and finds it difficult to accept any loss of face. But if he gets most of what he’s asking for — enough to make the Korean Peninsula, its neighbors, and the American homeland much safer — we hope he will not walk away in a rage.

Trump Eyes Wide Open On North Korea

President Trump seems to share President Reagan’s genuine horror at the thought of nuclear war, a deeply held belief that drove Reagan to engage Soviet Premier Gorbachev in both diplomatic negotiations to reduce nuclear weapons and a strategic competition that eventually brought down the Soviet Union.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Look closely – the tide is receding quickly on the left’s 2018 blue wave

The only thing that makes sense in 21st century America is to argue for limited government principles, adherence to Constitutional confines and returning power to the states and local entities that can make real improvements in citizens’ lives. Republicans would be wise to follow the blueprint.

Trump’s Common Sense Realism

Robert Curry, American Greatness

Common sense, in its common and its uncommon degrees, is something very different from “lizard wisdom,” whatever that might be.  It seems clear that Trump has common sense in a degree well beyond the ordinary. That is something altogether more valuable than the ability of foreign policy “experts” to come up with rationalizations for the Obama policies which encouraged the mullahs’ aggression and raised the threat level for America.
