Outsiders vs. Insiders: Cracks in base support will widen quickly if Trump ignores his promises

Donald Trump has thus far exhibited a remarkable ability to assess the mood of the voters and act on it. But Trump cannot take it for granted that his supporters will back everything he does. The base may be solid for now, but conservatives still expect him to keep his word.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Liberals drop Russia obsession to home in on Trump’s legitimacy

Media liberals might be taking a break from bloviating over Russia but in the interim they have found an issue that is not only attention-grabbing to the average American, but also more potent towards achieving what they’re ultimately after – the total destruction of the Trump presidency.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Can #NeverTrump claim a ‘moral imperative’ to primary Trump in 2020?

It wasn’t the only reason but one thing Trump’s supporters especially liked about him was his willingness to stand up for American traditions and culture no matter how “uncool” it seemed to the #NeverTrumpers, leftists, snobby elitists and establishment name-droppers. The same still holds.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If Bannon promises ‘war’ on Trump’s enemies we should all volunteer

President Trump’s enemies will do their best to weaken him – and they already have – but as long as Trump sticks to his campaign promises he ultimately won’t lose. It will be more difficult without Steve Bannon by his side, but if Bannon isn’t giving up, neither should we.

Personnel is Policy: Does Bannon's Departure Signal the End of Trump's Commitment to Govern as a Conservative?

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
It seems that the West Wing is now being run by the liberal Democrats. Gary Cohn, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, General John Kelly, H.R. McMaster, and the Obama holdovers at the NSC have all survived and thrived, while the conservatives have been run-off.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: To find who the elites really despise, ride to the sound of the criticism

Steve Bannon will be a controversial figure as long as there are forces in the country out to cause trouble and establishment whiners to criticize him. But if Trump is smart he’ll look past all the outrage and recognize Bannon is only despised because he’s a threat to the established order.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Can General John Kelly put an end to the White House staff soap opera?

There are many factors beyond the president’s control in pushing policy changes and improvements. Eliminating the White House staff controversies will help move things along but the entirety of the Republican Party must get onboard if Trump is to Make America Great Again.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Mitch McConnell’s lack of ‘expectations’ indicates it’s time for him to go

With all the talk of replacing Mitch McConnell as Majority Leader, we may see a changed man once the Senate reconvenes. President Trump deserves a lot of credit for injecting some of the unpredictability back into politics – and the establishment should take notice.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Media’s Charlottesville narrative – Racism, and Trump, are REALLY bad

Exploring the unfettered truth about American history and its uneven racial past is the only way to achieve real understanding today. It certainly won’t be realized by listening to the establishment media prattle on about how racist and “deplorable” Trump supporters are alleged to be.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Mitch McConnell’s ruling class chickens roosting comfortably in DC

The old saying goes “If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog.” Perhaps conservatives should purchase a few hundred pooches and have them delivered to the capitol. If the ruling class needs “friends” so badly then maybe they should look somewhere outside of politics to find them.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Does anyone really think Mark Zuckerberg could challenge Trump in 2020?

Trump will remain controversial to many people, though four or eight years of consistent advocacy for solid policies and real results in the economy will bring people onboard. The whole notion of an independent running against him and the Democrats is a foolhardy one indeed.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: To “win” the political game, Trump must get a chance to play

The “game” is only in its opening stages and it’s next to impossible to determine who’s going to “win”. The people bet on Trump and it’s not time to make a personnel swap at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Even if we’re not yet “winning,” we certainly aren’t “losing” either.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Are conservatives and the GOP better off today than we were before Trump?

The most important factor in the “Are we better off?” equation is the new attitude Trump brought to the GOP and to government. The stagnation that’s plagued Washington for decades has been broken by Trump’s insistence on real results and a different way of thinking.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Everything the media ever wanted to know they learned in preschool

The establishment media is kind of like preschoolers in a classroom. They wander around, completely oblivious to the storm going on outside. To them, their entire world is confined within their four walls. The leaders lead, the followers follow and the whiners whine.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Talk of GOP civil war has Trump-bashers digging holes in preparation

Trump will continue to have his detractors and if there is a “civil war” in the GOP, the first shot will certainly come from the establishment side. If these elites keep it up they’ll have more than enough volunteers to dig a huge hole and throw the entire Republican Party into it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Bad Democrat advice plus no spine equals no wins for hapless GOP

Republican legislative victories certainly won’t happen if more Republican senators look to Democrats for answers to the most vexing political questions of today. Many intra-party high hurdles remain before the GOP actually gets something done – and Democrats won’t help, either.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: When did it become cool to embrace the abnormal in American culture?

There’s no place for personal expression in government service and the people aren’t “bigots” or “intolerant” for wanting public servants to observe reasonable standards of dress and decorum. It’s common sense; and culture is culture in spite of the left’s best efforts to change it.

Trump turns to his generals in times of trouble

W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

President Trump second-guessed generals on the campaign trail, but in office he has relied heavily on their counsel, with the ascension of retired Gen. John Kelly to White House chief of staff serving as the latest example. Kelly is now the general at the helm of the White House staff. Trump gained confidence in him during his service as secretary of Homeland Security, a position from which he often had to defend the president's controversial positions on immigration and national security.

FedUp PAC Poll: Conservatives Say Trump Should Skip Establishment Appointees

More than 98% agreed that the establishment should be blacklisted by Trump, given their lack of loyalty and the probability that they would become part of the army of anti-Trump leakers in the government.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If Bill Clinton had Twitter back in his day, what would he have said?

Maybe since “The Mooch” generated so much controversy the media and Trump’s critics will ease off jabbing about his Twitter habit. It’s a different day and age in America and Trump is a different kind of leader – and we don’t even need 140 characters or less to understand it.
