Outsiders vs. Insiders: ‘Trumpism’ may be a myth but hostility to the president is very real

Questions over the meaning of “Trumpism” will continue long past Donald Trump’s tenure in the White House. Trump’s supporters believe the outsider president is bringing a refreshing new approach to efforts to drain the DC swamp; Trump’s enemies can’t bash him enough. Where’s the middle ground?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Playing by the (senate) rules will guarantee defeat for GOP this year

In some ways rules are made to be broken. Just like with a law that’s repealed, rules outlive their usefulness and validity. Republicans would be smart to remember that bold moves – i.e. “breaking rules” – would not only help pass their agenda; the public would reward them for it too.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If chaos equals success for the Trump administration, bring on more of it

The media created narrative of “turmoil” in the White House has clearly taken hold with the public yet it remains a mystery whether it will hurt Republican candidates this year or Trump’s reelection chances in 2020. All we can do is dig below the surface to see where the truth lies.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Should conservatives be worried about what the media isn’t telling us?

Conservatives instinctively know to question everything that’s reported by the liberal mainstream news media but the recent flare-ups over the Correspondents’ dinner and the ongoing pampering of Hillary Clinton are especially troubling. How much bias is there and what are they not telling us?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: GOP’s secret weapon in November just could be the deranged Democrats

The end of the first week in May is never a good time to make accurate predictions as to what will happen on Election Day in November. A million things could occur in the next six months, but one factor will remain the same regardless – Democrats will always be Democrats.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Ted Cruz speaks out on Senate inertia, ruling class makes lame excuses

The Republican “team” isn’t going to get anywhere by sitting on their hands and waiting for November to be over so they’ll know if they’re still in the majority or not. Senator Ted Cruz is the type of leader the GOP needs – the party should govern now like there’s no tomorrow.

Sixty Percent Of Likely Voters Want Immigration Cut

The bottom line: As we head into the 2018 mid-term election cycle, the polling company’s recent survey research found that almost two-thirds of all likely voters support reducing immigration and are opposed to DACA amnesty unless it is coupled with ending chain migration along with mandating that employers use E-verify to protect the jobs American workers and legal immigrants.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ guaranteed jobs proposal would savage American work ethic

Government can’t provide what it doesn’t possess nor can legally obtain. Democrats’ promising everyone a guaranteed job is not only unconstitutional, it’s impractical and would completely undermine the American work ethic. Perhaps most disturbing is the media’s acceptance of the scheme as serious.

Conservatives Unanimous For Change: Jordan for Speaker

Perhaps we should have said near-unanimous: The latest FedUp PAC poll shows almost 99% agree that Rep. Jim Jordan would be more likely to successfully move President Trump’s conservative-populist agenda through the House.  Less than one-half of one percent believe California Rep. Kevin McCarthy would do a better job.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Americans need to see if Jim Jordan could make difference for the GOP

Jim Jordan is just the type of new leader who could really make a difference this year – not only in the upcoming midterm elections but also by helping accomplish the draining of the swamp. Here’s thinking voters would respond positively to the opportunity Jordan represents in this regard.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Dems’ false delusions poisoned political debate in America today

Democrat elites’ contempt for average Americans is sometimes well-hidden but crops up often. Washington swamp creatures know (or care) little about the struggles of the common folk – and with the tone of political debate deteriorating by the moment, there’s scant hope it will ever improve.

Who Do You Trust To Keep Their Campaign Promises?

When voters were asked "who do you trust to fulfill their campaign promises?" President Trump topped all comers with 31 percent saying they trusted him to keep his campaign promises, but the Capitol Hill GOP came in dead last at only 6 percent.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Feckless Congress forces Trump’s attention to the foreign policy realm

With Republicans’ attention dominated by the 2018 midterm elections it will likely take a major foreign policy breakthrough to get President Trump noticed this year. Trump is accomplishing what he can through executive authority – conservatives must pressure Congress to do the rest.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Celebrities and pols who won’t stand for values are life’s biggest wimps

Standing up for what you believe in takes a lot of guts. Whether it’s Shania Twain, a person answering a public opinion survey or a United States senator there’s always going to be someone criticizing you. How you defend your values reveals a lot about your character and judgement.

New Poll: Conservatives Want Anybody But McCarthy For Speaker Of The House

Here’s our take on why Kevin McCarthy does so poorly in this poll of grassroots conservatives: He’s spent a lot of time raising money and talking to Swamp-based donors and very little time getting out and selling conservative ideas. And the reason he doesn’t get out and sell conservative ideas is that he’s not a conservative.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: NeverTrumpers cling to hope Trump will fall on his face ahead of 2020

The president can’t be blamed for Congress’s inability to push through conservative agenda items. Trump is far from perfect but he’s tried every means possible to get things moving. Instead of plotting a possible 2020 challenger, his GOP enemies should be putting more pressure on Capitol Hill.

Leading Conservative Organizations Unite Behind Jim Jordan For Speaker

The Washington establishment wants people to think House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has the race locked up and that a conservative like Jim Jordan has no chance, but this thinking ignores what Americans want – change in Washington.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Why we should intervene and tell Hillary why she’d never be president

Democrats tried the “first woman president” thing with Hillary Clinton in 2016. Being female simply isn’t enough of a basis to stake a candidacy. Americans might not be the most sophisticated political actors in the world, but they aren’t stupid…at least half of them, anyway.
