Donald Trump

Conservative Outsider Mike Braun Charging Ahead In Indiana Senate Race

In the lead-up to his third statewide media buy, businessman and conservative outsider Mike Braun called on his two leading opponents, Congressmen Todd Rokita and Luke Messer, to join with him and denounce the news that House Republicans are considering bringing back the pork-barrel projects known as earmarks.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Only way we get Pres. Oprah is if Donald stops being President Trump

All the tweets in the world won’t pass bills in Congress or improve Trump’s standing with the skeptical part of the public. Trump likely won’t face impeachment and Oprah probably won’t run – but the ultimate success of his administration depends on his ability to control himself.

Democrats' disingenuous dealing on DACA

Editors, Washington Examiner

Democrats, while gnashing their teeth about the fate of “Dreamers,” illegal immigrants who arrived as children, behave as though they don't actually want to keep these immigrants in the country. Instead, they want to keep the Dreamer issue alive for political gain in 2018 and 2020. What Democrats really hate is the idea of giving Trump and the GOP a popular policy victory in a year when they'd prefer to amp up their resistance to the point of complete intransigence in order to win the midterm congressional elections.

The Economy Says Trump Is Crazy Like A Fox

By every measure we could find Americans are doing better under crazy President Donald Trump than they were under the cool, suave and eminently sane Barack Obama. Apparently, investors, who have billions on the line, aren’t worried that our President is deranged.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Will the GOP hold the line on immigration? We’ll soon find out.

History suggests President Trump has a few aces up his sleeve on immigration and in the upcoming GOP primaries. Some may have set aside Trump’s promise to drain the swamp but it’s doubtful he has. Making American Great Again won’t happen without his key agenda items.

The Conservative Cause Is Bigger Than Any Two Men

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Looking toward the 2018 primaries, the rupture of relations between Trump and Bannon has created a temporary leadership vacuum in the conservative – populist movement, so it is up to each of us to step up and do what we can to fill that vacuum; the need for top quality conservative candidates for every office is too great, our goals are too important, and our mission is too urgent for this battle of personalities to slow us, let alone to stop us.

Trump Drives Another Nail Into Obamacare’s Coffin

David Catron, The American Spectator

Obamacare is being prepared for burial one nail at a time. Trump's recently signed AHP regulation is just the latest to be hammered home. The “Affordable Care Act” will eventually join Prohibition, the Sedition Act, the National Maximum Speed law, and the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law in the graveyard of dumb Beltway ideas. It’s only necessary to keep our eyes on the prize.

The Man Who Should Replace Steve Bannon and Why

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Larry Elder is the perfect guy to oversee and cheerlead a new approach to outreach to black voters, not just because he has been thinking about it for a long time and would know how to do it — utilizing those incentives, which create more permanent change, rather than government spending, which usually disappears into the ether —  but because he is a terrific communicator. The man is warm and funny. (Yes, I know him, so can attest to both, but those traits are apparent daily on radio and television.)

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Americans would be crazy to believe critics claiming Trump is unstable

The media and Democrats will continue to say Trump is unstable, insane, unbalanced and any other adjective that implies his behavior is a threat to the country. Leftists imagine getting rid of Trump would spell the end of his policy agenda – it’s up to us to prove them wrong.

Fire and Fury Signifying Nothing

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The media was too giddy with the Bannon-Trump feud to practice anything remotely approaching impartial journalism. No sooner had they finished their approving reports on the Hillary campaign’s outsourcing of espionage to foreigners than pundits were chuntering about the collusion claim the book revives. The melodrama of it all is on the level of a daytime soap, though even those don’t put forward plots as preposterous as an intensely competitive real estate tycoon who runs for president hoping to lose.

Trump and Iran -- Leading from the front

Newt Gingrich, Fox News

President Trump represents a remarkably different view of reality. He believes weakness begets weakness. He believes bad regimes are bad. He believes leaders look for opportunities and move aggressively and courageously to advance their vision of the world. He believes America is big enough and strong enough to provide real leadership.

The Year Of Women’s Anger Will Only Escalate Unless Women Stop Pretending They’re Victims

D.C. McAllister, The Federalist

During the Women’s March, feminists said it was not an event, it was a movement, a movement of change. Feminism would regain its credibility and legitimacy. It would wrest moral authority from the “p-ssy-grabbing” scoundrels who stole it and gain dominance once more in American culture. But it didn’t work. In the weeks following the Women’s March, all the tears of celebrities flooding social media and hysterical warnings of Trump rolling back abortion rights dried up and fizzled into a mere whine.

Trump-onomics 101

The forgotten working folks who voted for Donald Trump are seeing the benefit of his economic policies in more hours at the factories and other businesses that employ them, higher wages and more job security in the outlook for new orders.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ obsession with 2018 midterms won’t subside until they lose

The possibility of regaining power and stopping President Trump ensures a steady stream of media reports concerning this year’s midterm elections. Trump’s statements remain the hot topic of discussion but congressional Republicans can better make their case by sticking to his winning agenda.

The Great Experiment

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

The nation did not suddenly become liberal in 2008 or conservative in 2016. Rather, in both years it rejected blasé centrism — first trying out a left-wing deviation from establishmentarianism, then in frustration turning to a right-wing antidote to both the failed medicine and the original diseased status quo. We have been given a great gift in seeing two ideologically opposed solutions back to back, and both may end up adjudicating rhetoric through deeds.

Here’s how Trump can score some wins in 2018

Ned Ryun, The Hill

Trump shouldn’t let himself be hampered by a recalcitrant Congress. He can score some real wins in 2018 simply by using his executive powers. If Trump does these things in 2018, and appoints another Neil Gorsuch type to SCOTUS when Justice Kennedy likely retires next summer, Republicans across the board will share in the positive effects, Trump will win reelection, and Democrats will become the “Coastal Regional Party.”

#NeverMitt

We don’t know if Utah’s forgotten men and women know much about the real Mitt Romney – the vulture capitalist who likes firing people, who opposes economic nationalism and thinks the job killing Trans Pacific Partnership would have been good for America, so here is the first in our series outing the real Mitt Romney.

Now Is The Time To Step Up Pressure On Iran

January 12 is just over a week from today, but that’s plenty of time for the President to make a major policy statement in support of the Iranian people, and to put in motion the actions necessary to support them in their desire to rid themselves of the corrupt mullahs now stifling their liberty – and threatening our own national security.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Ding-dong Orrin Hatch will be gone but Romney could easily be worse

Time will tell how Orrin Hatch’s retirement will play out. Regardless, there will be new blood in the senate after Hatch’s departure – and that can only be a good thing. Mitt Romney would add a new establishment presence to Washington – but would he really just be a thorn in Trump’s side?

It’s Only Been the Apocalypse for Democrats

Lawrence Meyers, Townhall

Normal Americans have someone who doesn’t look down on them. One can argue that Trump is unpredictable, inexperienced, has made countless errors, and the White House is a disaster – and all of those arguments hold water. However, there is no denying that Trump is what the average America needs – a fighter. As for the Democrats, their world has certainly ended, but for the rest of America, we’re just getting started.
