Drain the swamp

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Is Frederica Wilson the new figurehead of today’s nutty Democrat Party?

Being president grants one the right to act on behalf of the country to express gratitude and sorrow to people whose misery is unimaginable. And it should also come with the benefit of the doubt that the feelings conveyed are with a true heart and sincere convictions.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: What does George W. Bush & the NFL flag protesters have in common?

It’s hard to predict how the latest battles over American culture will turn out or if they’ll ever truly end. There’s so much disinformation out there and so many liberal politicians seeking to take advantage of it that things just seem to be getting more dumb and dumber all the time.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: No one but Trump controls his image and media liberals hate it

There’s no concrete explanation for why Trump tweets or says what he does and whether it’s on purpose or accident will likely remain a mystery for the balance of his days in office. Trump knows what he’s doing and the image he’s fostered is one that meets his approval.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: No need to panic, Donald Trump isn’t diving in with the swamp monsters

Donald Trump has repeatedly demonstrated that he possesses a virtually unmatched political instinct. Trump understands where he’s been and where he’s going and who can help him get there. Invariably he’ll recognize the leaders of the establishment aren’t his friends.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Obamacare war simply won’t be won by McConnell leading from behind

Mitch McConnell may believe history and the public is in his corner but Americans are on the side of a government staying within the bounds of the Constitution and refraining from interfering in their lives. There’s only one way to win a war and it’s not by leading from behind.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Colin Kaepernick’s day in collusion court won’t help the NFL with its fans

Unless NFL players can articulate what their end-goal is in all of this, they’ll continue to be shunned and the game will suffer irreparable damage. Colin Kaepernick’s “collusion” lawsuit isn’t going to help matters – and time is running out for the purveyors of protest to figure it out.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Dems scan the heavens for signs of Russian Sputnik raid on '18 elections

The truth is grassroots backers of all stripes are becoming increasingly suspicious of the establishment elites of both parties, leaders who talk a good game and make loads of promises but never deliver on anything substantive. It’s so rotten not even blaming the Russians would work.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Were the old days of male-only Boy Scouts too much of a good thing?

If our diseased culture includes the Boy Scouts now admitting girls and pro athletes simply refusing to stand during the national anthem, a big chunk of the population will decide it ain’t worth having their kids involved in these endeavors at all. Everyone loses; no one wins.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Gerrymandering is latest Democrat ploy to delegitimize the system

Gerrymandering is just the latest convenient excuse liberals are using to make it seem like the electoral system is biased against them. Democrats’ attempt to federalize everything won’t change the fact the party is dying at the local level. No Supreme Court ruling will fix it.

Conservative Outsider Senate Candidates Breaking Fundraising Records

While fundraising support for the Republican establishment is drying-up due to the failure of Capitol Hill’s Republican leaders to produce on their campaign promises, two of the most promising Republican outsiders, Indiana’s Mike Braun and Wisconsin’s Leah Vukmir, are reporting record-breaking support.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Would 200 years of black patriots approve of today’s NFL flag protesters?

History shows many people of all races and religions have given their lives for the privilege of recognition under the American flag. It’s a tradition that’s survived the centuries and will no doubt outlive the current whines and insults. The NFL would be wise to acknowledge it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: In Trump’s world, if everyone thinks the same someone isn’t thinking

It could be true Trump has serious policy divergences with his advisers; whenever you’re new and strive to do things differently conflicts are bound to arise. We shouldn’t lose sight of the fact Washington must change -- or it will fail. A little discord is therefore acceptable.

Fed Up Donors Tell GOP Senate Leaders Pass Bills Or Resign

“I think major donors are tired of writing checks to a do-nothing Congress,” Roy Bailey, an influential, Dallas-based GOP donor told POLITICO, and he's not the only one who has closed his wallet to the Republican establishment.

VP Pence’s Chief Of Staff Nick Ayers Is Our New Hero

Vice President Pence's Chief of Staff Nick Ayers told a group of major donors to the RNC they should call members of Congress and tell them if they don't pass Trump's agenda "we’re recruiting opponents, we’re maxing out to their campaigns, and we’re funding super PACs to defeat all of you.”

Outsiders vs. Insiders: More than ever, recent history proves police officers are on our side

Maybe Colin Kaepernick started all of this to launch his own political career. It’s obvious he needs a new gig where he can run his mouth and still have people love him for it. It’s highly unlikely his reception would be as welcome or merited as the return of Steve Scalise, however.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Las Vegas aftermath – guns don’t kill people, cultural rot does

Maybe instead of gun control we need to emphasize more morality in American society, particularly the Judeo Christian ethic of “Thou shalt not kill.” Religion alone won’t prevent all such acts from occurring but in a culture that’s as diseased as ours, it certainly couldn’t hurt.

Mr. Trump, don't just address the symptoms. Cure the 'swamp disease'

Ned Ryun, Fox News

What Trump must immediately do, through an Executive Order, is lay down stronger guidelines, standards and practices as to how his Executive Branch and Cabinet members spend taxpayer dollars and government resources. This will not only set the tone for this administration, but will help change the behavior of future administrations. There will be hell to pay for any president who might revoke that order.
