Hillary Clinton

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How the media sold an octogenarian woman as the voice of today’s kids

No life or death issues are easy and often there are good arguments on both sides. It’s just plain arrogance on behalf of liberals like Dianne Feinstein to claim there are no reasonable alternatives to banning “assault weapons”. Political decisions have consequences indeed.

Hillary, Meet My Wife

I mentioned to my bride that Hillary Clinton remarked in an interview in India that “pressure from Republican husbands is what caused white women to vote for Trump.” I’ll have to paraphrase her response, otherwise it would be unfit to print: “Are you kidding me?” she exclaimed.

How Hillary Clinton still misses the point

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

It’s obvious from the last election that the Democrats also didn’t do well with married, white men. Yet, Mrs. Clinton doesn’t argue that it was Republican women bullying and pressuring their husbands into voting a certain way. In other words, the leading liberal feminist in the country is pushing the ironic narrative that if you’re a woman who does not conform to the liberal narrative, you have no mind of your own and are controlled by the men in your life. Yet it’s conservatives who are sexist and reliant on perpetuating gender stereotypes. Got it.

Hillary Clinton, Pride of Radcliffe

Roger Kimball, American Greatness

Perhaps the Radcliffe Institute is hoping some measure of pelf will be sent their way. My observation is that, when it comes to the Clintons, money flows in only one direction. Be that as it may, this little list, incomplete though it is, may help the multitude who will assemble this May to pay homage to Hillary Clinton’s “transformative impact on society” gain a deeper appreciation of the nature of her “lifetime of relentless effort.” How proud Radcliffe must be.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: With Trump’s populism, take the (mostly) good with the (sometimes) bad

Populism has become a dirty word but only because Trump’s critics and enemies accuse him of enslaving himself to the will of the masses. Trump’s lack of core principles is problematic at times (guns and immigration) but keeping his campaign promises, on balance, is a good thing.

‘Backwards’: Hillary Clinton Apparently Still Has No Clue Why She Lost

Holly Scheer, The Federalist

All of the red America between the coasts is still fully America, and needs and deserves representation and a voice. Democratic hopefuls for 2020 might benefit from a little bit of the looking backwards she so despises, and reconnecting with what Americans want and need instead of constructing a strawman to mock in front of foreign audiences.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats search for signs on how to bring down Trump in 2020

Odds are Joe Biden won’t get anywhere close to the presidency and neither will anyone from the epicenter of leftist angst, California. 2020, like every election, will depend on the candidates’ ability to generate sufficient enthusiasm to win a party nomination and then the general. The Democrats have an uphill climb.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Trump’s meeting with Kim Jong-un is a win-win, but only for U.S.

If I were Trump the first thing I’d do is offer Kim Jong-un a big hunk of cheese instead of an olive branch. The North Koreans aren’t interested in peace as much as the opportunity to persuade the U.S. to roll back its crippling economic sanctions. We’ll see how it all turns out.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: White men can’t jump and black folks can’t swim – shouldn’t we just laugh?

The world would be a better place if we could occasionally laugh and joke the way Deion Sanders did the other day at the NFL combine. There will always be occasions to treat certain subjects seriously – but if we’re to survive as a people maybe we’d just better smile and get over it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Hey Donald Trump, how can we get you to be more like Ronald Reagan?

We all know Trump is no Ronald Reagan, nor can he ever expect to be thought of in the same light as the man who saw America as the “Shining City on a Hill.” That said, Trump deserves the leeway to achieve his own vision of making America great again. I think we should give it to him.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats won’t defeat GOP in November but complacency just might

To immunize GOP voters from the lethal complacency bug the party must run strong conservative candidates, not just rubber-stamps who will march to Mitch McConnell’s drumbeat and fail to fight for Trump’s agenda. We need boat-rockers seeking to annihilate the status quo.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Tariff debate irks the intellectuals but Americans may take to the idea

The jury’s still out on the validity of trade protectionism. History seems to support many sides of the argument, but they can’t all be right. Perhaps President Trump is correct in saying it’s time for a change; either way it appears the swampy status quo is on its way out.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Should conservatives worry about Trump’s wobbly gun views?

Truth is, there are lots of things in Washington today causing Americans to do a double-take. President Trump is clearly interested in furthering the conversation on guns and willing to accept whatever Congress comes up with as long as it’s reasonable. For the rest? Wait and see.

Hillary Clinton And Our Hypersonic Missile Gap With Russia

Russia's hypersonic missile program was born at Skolkovo a vast Russian industrial espionage program with its genesis at the nexus of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s foundation, Hillary Clinton’s State Department, Bill Clinton, and Russian oligarch Vekselberg. It is driven by donors to the Clinton Foundation and was championed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Conservatives hope Hicks story won’t stall momentum of Trump agenda

The media will never cease complaining about the way Trump handles communications – or anything else the outsider non-politician who now occupies the Oval Office does. Critics are a dime a dozen in the swamp; what really counts is what’s getting done right before our eyes.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: It’s never too early to work for the second term of Donald Trump

With his early declaration of intention to run again in 2020 President Trump demonstrated he’s all-in on his agenda and committed to making America great again. In doing so Trump proved he’s a man of action and resolve. It’s time we got to work to ensure he gets his second term.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Divided Dems primed and ready to massively flunk 2018 midterm exams

One way or another both parties have a lot to contemplate ahead of this year’s midterms. The Republicans have their retirements and #NeverTrumpers, but the Democrats are battling over something much larger and potentially more destructive -- a fight over the soul of the party.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: What kind of (government) friend would leave us alone to die?

The old saying “A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out” is little comfort when you have no clue whether friends are even prepared to assist when the time is ripe. It’s a lesson 17 unfortunate souls in Florida will no longer have the opportunity to appreciate.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Instead of protesting guns, teens should clean sidewalks in San Fran

The media will always frame complex issues in the most biased way feasible. It’s easy to drum up sympathy for liberal causes by showing students chanting and holding signs in front of the White House; it’s much more difficult to face the realities of liberal governance head-on.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: ‘Normalization’ of Trump presidency leaves Dems on outside looking in

It’s only natural for American political observers to always consider the next election as the most important one of a generation – and this year’s midterms are no different. A lot can happen before November arrives; for now it’s probably best just to sit back and watch the show.
