RINOs and Democrats Still Pushing Transgenders on the Military

Just when we thought the issue of transgenders in the military had finally been laid to rest, Senators Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and Susan Collins (R-ME) announced their co-sponsorship of an amendment to force the armed forces to retain and recruit transgender personnel.

NumbersUSA POLL: Most voters want refugee numbers cut to 25,000 or less

More than half of likely 2018 congressional voters preferred the United States admit 25,000 or fewer "refugees," with 39% preferring to admit no "refugees" with the US instead assisting refugees in safe zones close to their home countries.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Conservatives beware of West Wing Democrat salesmen bearing promises

Passing tax reform should be a no-brainer for the GOP. They run on the issue every year and there’s broad consensus that rates need to be cut. Donald Trump’s presidency could hinge on what takes place in the next few months; beyond that, the entire republic could be at stake.

The Alternate Nostril Breathing of Lady Macbeth

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Hillary’s campaign memoir, What Happened, is as awful as expected, serving as yet another cracked window on her phoniness. She remains the baby-boomer feminist fraud, still pouting over alleged sexism even as she hurls herself upon various fainting couches. In between sips of chardonnay and alternate nostril breathing, Hillary takes pride in her status as the “first woman in U.S. history to become the presidential nominee of a major political party” and longs for that day when Americans no longer value “hypermasculine, aggressive behavior.”

The Trump boom arrives

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

In the aftermath of the Obamacare repeal whiff, enacting the Trump tax cut this year is critical to the expansion. Some of the elation we are seeing in the stock market and business spending is due to the anticipation effect of tax rate cuts before year’s end. If Republicans — and hopefully pro-business Democrats — can pass a meaningful tax cut this fall — the Trump boom may just be getting started.

Trump’s Original Sin

Steve Bannon's "60 Minutes" interview provided one sentence that explained most of President Trump's difficulties; “48 hours after we won” a fundamental decision was made to embrace the establishment because Trump needed to “govern.”

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Donald Trump’s 2020 reelection prospects already plain for all to see

If Donald Trump continues to push the right political buttons – and Republicans in Congress actually move forward on the agenda he articulated during last year’s campaign – he will win over more voters and his current popularity numbers won’t be a problem.

Wisconsin Conservatives Uniting Behind Leah Vukmir For US Senate

Wisconsin’s Far-Left Senator Tammy Baldwin has been ripe for a conservative challenge since the day she walked on to the Senate Floor – and in state Senator Leah Vukmir it looks like Baldwin is about to get the principled conservative opponent needed to build on the Trump victory in Wisconsin and flip that Senate seat from blue to red.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Betsy DeVos and Hillary Clinton -- a Tale of Two Washington Women

It used to be the Constitution brought Americans together but that’s no longer true. These days, as Betsy DeVos demonstrated, returning to our country’s founding principles only brings one scorn, condemnation and evil wishes from people who use the system for their own aims.

We may be witnessing a turning point in the Trump presidency

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Trump's outsider, pragmatic perspective can now work in his favor. If he can find both common ground and real solutions, we might look back one day and see a more bipartisan approach to governing as the one silver lining of the weather calamities of 2017.

Where is Trump popular? And what does that mean for 2018?

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Overshadowing all the numbers is the possibility that Trump's ratings might not work in the same way as earlier presidents. Are his low ratings -- lower than his predecessors at this point -- as bad as they look, or should they be viewed differently? "Trying to compare Trump numbers with prior presidents at this point is very difficult, particularly given that he started with 60 percent unfavorable on election night," Republican pollster David Winston told me last month.

DACA: Trump Does the Full Obama on Prosecutorial Discretion

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

Obama disingenuously invoked “prosecutorial discretion” when, in reality, he was choosing not to enforce congressional statutes to which he objected on policy grounds. Now, prompted by Pelosi, Trump has reaffirmed Obama’s prosecutorial-discretion sleight of hand. In fact, Trump’s action is arguably worse — yet another instance of the folly of announcing policy via Twitter and its 140-character limits (including exclamation points!).

The Week Donald Trump Restored the Republic

Joel Pollak, Breitbart

Amidst all the worrying about how divided our country is, a new feeling is beginning to emerge, a sense of a society and a government that are actually working. Some of that is due simply to the resilience and decency of ordinary Americans, on full display in Texas. But some of that is because of Trump. How ironic that the great “disruptor” of our political system is turning out to be the leader who is restoring it — and, soon, public faith in it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Could the best option on North Korea be to simply do nothing?

If some politician out there has a better solution than the man on the street to the North Korea situation, we’d all like to hear it. In the meantime Americans simply want their towns and cities protected and their sons and daughters to remain safely away from any military conflict.

Trump Dumps the Do-Nothing Congress

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

If democracy, as Freedom House contends, is in global retreat, one reason may be that, in our new age, legislatures, split into hostile blocs checkmating one another, cannot act with the dispatch impatient peoples now demand of their rulers. In the days of Henry Clay and Daniel Webster, Congress was a rival to even strong presidents. Those days are long gone.

One Down 40 – 50 To Go

Rep. Charles Dent a leader of the RINO Tuesday Group is retiring. Our take on the Tuesday Group is 1 down, 40 – 50 to go, they are each guilty until proven innocent by their votes, so primary them all.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Could trained chimps help Donald Trump more than Ryan and McConnell?

Donald Trump seems driven by a determination to “Make America Great Again” by making everything shine just like one of his skyscrapers. Republican leaders could work effectively with the president if they only understood what really motivates him. Will they ever learn?

There Is No Such Thing As a 'Deserving DREAMer'

Michelle Malkin, Townhall

The left-wing DREAM racket is a self-perpetuating political marketing machine. Its primary contribution to American society? Lashing out at how cruel, racist, ignorant and ungrateful the rest of us are for not bowing down before the hallowed angel children of the Obama administration's amnesty program.
