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.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How do you spell game change in 2018? S-U-P-R-E-M-E C-O-U-R-T

President Trump likely didn’t beg Justice Kennedy to retire but no one would’ve blamed him if he had. Kennedy’s departure not only represents a golden opportunity to remake the Court for a generation, it also gives Republicans a winning cause to run on this fall. It’s game on for 2018.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Disagreements, curses & personal insults are as old as American politics

Partisan politics in our times has become one grand stage show. Both sides say outrageous things to draw media attention and goad their opponents. Disagreements and personal vendettas weren’t invented by our political class but it’s certainly been elevated to an art form by them.

Call Congress Tell Them No Amnesty, No Cheap Immigrant Labor

Defeating Ryan’s amnesty bill may not be easy, because, Ryan has promised to "lean into" rounding up the votes. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) we urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Representative to demand he or she vote NO on Ryan’s amnesty bill when it comes to the Floor today.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: No, Maxine Waters (and Democrats), God is definitely not on your side

Try as she might, Nancy Pelosi and her Democrats just can’t find anything to stick to Trump in the minds of the public. Now the left is taking off after administration surrogates Sarah Sanders, Pam Bondi, Kirstjen Nielsen and Stephen Miller, led by ultra-doofus Maxine Waters. Will they ever get it right?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Misplaced Dem outrage over illegals has backlash written all over it

Democrats think they’re clever by squeezing every bit of outrage over the illegal immigrant separation issue but history suggests they’re wasting their time. Just like with every instance of rage they’ve drummed up over Trump, they’re only shooting themselves in the electoral foot.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: GOP spending snafu is a huge quandary heading into November elections

It goes without saying it’ll take years to drain the Washington swamp and there’s no one person that can fully realize it. An informed citizenry is vital to the health of any Republic – otherwise elected representatives won’t do their jobs. It’s particularly problematic in the GOP right now.

Amnesty Push Proves We Need Jim Jordan As Speaker

Speaker Paul Ryan, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, and Republican Whip Steve Scalise are all complicit and part of the problem. If we had a principled conservative Speaker, like Jim Jordan, conservatives would not be constantly given bad choices as the only alternatives to address our border security problems.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Americans’ independent spirit evident as the world obsesses on soccer

It doesn’t take a genius to surmise the different peoples of the world all have distinct interests. Just because most of the planet sees the World Cup as the preeminent sporting event of our times doesn’t mean we must follow along. Thankfully Donald Trump knows to value Americans’ opinions first.

Trump Flips Immigration Hot Potato Back To Congress

In an act of amazing political jujitsu, President Trump has defused the phony family separation crisis that the Left and their allies in the media and the cheap labor wing of the business community ginned-up to help them ram a Republican majority-destroying amnesty bill through Congress.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: With malice towards none & charity for all the GOP must solve immigration

Until Republicans take the proverbial immigration bull by the horns they’re going to end up on the wrong end of the public narrative. The media will give the GOP no credit and Democrats will fan the flames of discontent with inflammatory statements of their own. Who will stand up?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats try (and fail) to make America’s amnesty issue all about Trump

Democrats have taken to predicting uprisings and championing illegal aliens because they don’t have anything else to offer Americans. The debate over whether the GOP is Trump’s party will continue – but unless his dis-loyal opposition comes up with something better, he’ll remain in control.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Hapless Dems badly in need of crash course in political self-awareness

There’s no easy way to explain what’s wrong with Democrats these days; they’re wrong on policy, wrong on facts and wrong on personnel. There’s no telling how they’ll do in the midterm elections but even if successful they’re still in trouble. They’re a mess and don’t even realize it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Only in Trump’s America could showing too much pride get you in trouble

As long as there are people who look down on others for what they believe there will be conflict in this country. Whether it’s Chick-fil-A’s stance on marriage or Trump’s view of international trade, there’s no sign of a ceasefire in the war to control the cultural narrative. We should all be prepared to battle.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: When did Kim Jong-un supplant Donald Trump as master negotiator?

There’s still room to find fault with Trump on his handling of the summit with Kim Jong-un and other matters, but he deserves the benefit of the doubt for beginning the process. Along with credit, Trump needs leeway to get the job done -- perhaps it’s time his GOP critics gave him some.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Should Congress break social media’s stranglehold on free speech?

Social media has changed our world – and perhaps it is time to consider having Congress take some measure of oversight on businesses like Google and Facebook to ensure our First Amendment rights are preserved. The Founding Fathers would approve.
