Robert Mueller

We Need More Conservative Warriors Like Jordan, Meadows, Gaetz And DeSantis

Far from being merely partisan apologists for President Trump, Reps Jim Jordan, Mark Meadows, Matt Gaetz and Ron DeSantis are reflecting what their constituents think about the Mueller investigation and the Russia collusion probe.

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.

Why All the Secrecy?

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

The president should direct Rosenstein to outline, publicly and in detail, the good-faith basis for a criminal investigation arising out of Russia’s interference in the election — if there is one. If he can’t, Mueller’s criminal investigation should be terminated; if he can, Mueller should be compelled to explain (unless Rosenstein’s disclosure makes it clear) why he needs to interview President Trump in order to complete his work.

Time to end the crazy secrecy of the Trump-Russia investigation

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Capitol Hill's secrecy is nothing compared to that of special counsel Robert Mueller, whose lawyers recently declined to tell a federal judge in open court what their investigation is about. The problem with this investigation, going back to the beginning, is everything is done in secret. In February, I wrote that in the Trump-Russia probe, "Too much material is secret, too much is classified, and too many attacks are launched and defenses mounted with too little public knowledge of the underlying facts." That's still true, and becoming more so every day.

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?

Memo to Trump: Defy Mueller

Patrick J. Buchanan, Townhall

Trump needs to shift the struggle out of the legal arena, where Mueller and his men have superior weapons, and into the political arena, where he can bring his populous forces to bear in the decision as to his fate. This is the terrain on which Trump can win — an us-vs-them fight, before Congress and country, where not only the alleged crimes of Trump are aired but also the actual crimes committed to destroy him and to overturn his victory. Trump is a nationalist who puts America first both in trade and securing her frontiers against an historic invasion from the South. If he is overthrown, and the agenda for which America voted is trashed as well, it may be Middle America in the streets this time.

Mueller's Perjury Traps Widen

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

“I don’t do weasel moves,” Comey said to Trump during their infamous dinner. Those are the only moves he’s got, and Mueller, serving as a surrogate for his friend, is trying to make an impeachment case out of them. This is a hideous farce. Trump should refuse to participate in it. An ever-widening interrogation amounts to demanding that he supply the rope for his own hanging.

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.

Worse than Beria? Mueller Could Damage the World

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

This is terrible for the entire world. It is also ultimately terrible for the FBI and Mueller because if half the country continues to believe the president is being railroaded and that justice is hugely biased (why wasn't Hillary investigated on anything remotely near the level of Trump?), the results will be catastrophic. That word sounds hyperbolic but it isn't. We could see anything from civil war to social atrophy. Who knows if our country will survive it?

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.

Why President Trump Should Veto The Bill Prohibiting Him From Firing Robert Mueller

Daniel Oliver, The Federalist

By vetoing the bill (and having Congress override it), Trump could tell Congress and the nation that what Congress proposed is unconstitutional and that his sworn obligation is to support and defend the constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, whatever the political consequences may be. This could be Trump’s finest hour. The briar patch awaits.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Bullying by bullhorn is no way for leftists to win political arguments

The left’s agenda will not allow radical groups to take a seat in order to make the Democrats they support look more mainstream ahead of this year’s midterm elections. When it comes to making the GOP and Trump look “normal” there’s nothing better than a gathering of leftists with bullhorns.

Trump, Mueller, firing, and fury

Editors, Washington Examiner

The Russia investigation isn’t going to ensnare Trump. So the best thing Trump can do for himself and his country is to let Mueller finish his job. If the Senate can encourage him to do that with a firm warning, then every senator who supports Trump, as much as those who oppose him, should be eager to issue it.
