Outsiders vs. Insiders: Take that Michelle Obama -- Democrats go low even when Trump goes high

Democrats aren’t doing a very good job of “going high” as Michelle Obama advised them to do two years ago. The party’s lack of substantive policy ideas forces Democrats to defend defenseless positions and relentlessly bash everything Trump does. Will voters make them pay?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Trump asks ‘Why can’t we be friends?’ and critics won’t stop ripping him

Trump’s critics will continue hemming and hawing over his non-traditional approach to relations with Russia but he sets the policy and on balance it’s a sound one. Hopefully there will soon come a time when he won’t have to ask “Why can’t we be friends?” and face condemnation.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How California dreamin’ devolved into a liberal American nightmare

California remains the butt of jokes simply because its political leadership is granted free license to be as nutty as they want to be without fear of electoral rebuke. It’s a liberal politician’s dream; unfortunately for the rest of us California’s devolved into an American nightmare.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Why are Democrats trying to seize the stupid party label from the GOP?

Democrats can’t help themselves in trying to seize the “stupid party” label from the GOP. If the minority party continues committing political hara-kiri by calling for the abolishment of ICE, they deserve everything they get. Republicans should simply stand by and watch the implosion.

Why Should Trump Pick A Fight With Putin Over The Failures Of Obama, Clapper, Strzok and Brennan?

Never in the annals of Washington DC’s history have three bureaucrats been so anxious to shout their failures from every rooftop. But that’s exactly what Strzok, Clapper, and especially Brennan have been doing by blasting Trump for not picking a fight with Putin over their failure to stop Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Trump steamrolls DC ruling class on the road to American rebrand

It's no secret Donald Trump will never be accepted as a member of the DC ruling class, but his backers don’t care and he himself is far from bothered by it. Trump will succeed in his drive to improve the American brand – whether the media or political elites ride along is irrelevant.

Trump – Putin Summit Craziness

What Democrats, Trump critics like Senator John McCain, and Witch Hunters like Robert Mueller wanted President Trump to do would jeopardize the lives and safety of American military and intelligence officers around the world and make international relations infinitely more complex and difficult.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: International allies and competitors learn Trumpism transcends borders

One of President Trump’s best attributes is his ability to shake off criticism and do what’s right for the American people. Establishmentarians may not appreciate Trump’s style, but he gets results. It’s a lesson NATO allies – and our enemies – are relearning every day.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Donald Trump may be the world’s most unlikely liberator of all time

It’s often said all politics is local but it could just as easily be argued politics is national and global as well. Political leaders win favor by advancing ideas and principles that people can relate to. Republicans would do well to remember folks are drawn to real ideas, not just smears.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: #NeverTrumpers make it plain they enjoy being lonely outside the party

Luckily for conservatives President Trump has lived up to his campaign promises and is leading the most principled government since Ronald Reagan. Trump’s “conservative” opponents won’t acknowledge the writing on the wall, leaving them alone and outside the party. Literally.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Kavanaugh nomination to trigger 2018 version of DC political apocalypse

There’s no doubt the next few months will be an exciting time to be in Washington. All eyes will be on the senate as the two parties deliberate over Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s future. Democrats won’t hold back on the ferocity of their attacks on the man – will the republic survive?

Trump Heads To NATO Summit With America First Agenda

President Trump’s recognition that the United States cannot and should not continue to subsidize the quality of life for our allies is hardly a conspiracy theory, but an overdue recognition that the Reagan defense build-up was expended long ago, and if the Western alliance is to be maintained, then all its beneficiaries must pay their share.

Agenda for the Trump-Putin Summit

The president’s willingness to meet with nations at odds with America deserves praise. He need not befriend foreign leaders. However, he should communicate with them. If nothing else, the president needs to ensure that both Americans and Russians better understand each other and the issues which unite as well as divide us.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Are unhinged Democrats on the verge of starting a violent insurrection?

Tensions in America aren’t dying down and ugly incidents are becoming the norm. The left is desperate to release the rage it feels over Donald Trump – and people like Juan Williams aren’t helping things. With a Supreme Court nomination to deal with now, it’ll only get worse.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Suicidal Democrats risk disaster by defending the remorseless Waters

Liberals may think they’re laying the groundwork for political success by backing their own no matter what anyone says or does but they’re really just setting themselves up for failure. Maxine Waters has become a lightning rod for a reason – Democrats are suicidal to follow her lead.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Immigration quagmire exposes both parties’ leadership deficit in DC

Leadership is in short supply for both parties and the American political situation has deteriorated because of it. No progress will ever be made on immigration until Republicans elect leaders willing to stand up for President Trump’s common-sense reforms. Democrats are simply hopeless.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Don’t allow ‘Chucky’ Schumer & Collins to blow up Trump’s Court pick

When the rubber hits the road public pressure will have little to do with whether President Trump’s new Supreme Court nominee is confirmed or not. Schumer and Democrats can shout “extreme!” all they want and it won’t matter. The power is in Republicans’ hands; will they use it?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: America’s cultural split much deeper than clash between political tribes

Politics is not religion and there’s no such thing as partisan “tribes” unless people choose to create them in their own minds. America isn’t experiencing political sport and it's more serious than theater – we could be in the beginning stages of a civil war with no signs of a ceasefire.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: 4th of July fireworks a prelude to political pyrotechnics over Court

No doubt there will be many things on the minds of Americans as they celebrate the nation’s independence tomorrow, with the specter of the looming fight over the Supreme Court hovering in the foreground. The fireworks display this year will just be a prelude to the political pyrotechnics to come.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Who better understands conservatives, George Will or Donald Trump?

The jury’s still out on who will vote for whom in this year’s elections, but one thing’s for sure: George Will and the #NeverTrumpers won’t have much say in it. President Trump’s approval numbers are inching up slowly and Americans aren’t dumb -- the Democrats present no realistic alternative.
