Outsiders vs. Insiders: Yes, liberals, we really DO need a big beautiful border wall with Mexico

Time will reveal how the battle over a border wall ultimately concludes but in the meantime it’s the American public that’s suffering from a lack of urgency from both parties in Washington. A wall simply makes too much sense to abandon – Trump must stick to his guns.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Choosing civility over principle assures the DC swamp wins every time

More civility in politics would be a good thing but it also has its limitations. If lawmakers care more about being nice to each other than they do about advocating for their constituents the battle is already lost; there would be many chummy politicians in DC but hardly any happy Americans.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: DC’s Devil’s Advocates bring shame on themselves, not Donald Trump

Sooner or later the “Devil’s advocates” in each party become recognizable for what they are: contrarian voices that people more or less ignore. All the pseudo-Russia scandals in the world won’t make a difference in the long run because one way or another truth always comes to light.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If politicians can’t stop saying stupid things they might as well not talk

There’s no doubt politicians have a habit of saying stupid things that get themselves and their parties in trouble on a regular basis. In times like these it would be better for political folks to say nothing at all; if that were the case America would be the envy of the entire world, indeed.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ inane SOTU spoiled brat act will not go unnoticed by voters

Trump’s SOTU address wasn’t perfect but it deserved a better reception from roughly half of those in attendance. Democrats didn’t do themselves any favors by acting like spoiled children in front of the whole world. Americans aren’t unified – but the right side is winning.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Trump’s first SOTU leaves Democrats speechless…and hopeless

Donald Trump may not be the messenger everyone wanted but the message is what counts these days. Trump’s first State of the Union speech should be considered a smashing success – but what else would you expect from a man who swore America would start winning again if he were elected president. Mission accomplished.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Even Donald Trump needs an occasional reminder of who his friends are

It’s highly unlikely Donald Trump will gain many supporters among the leftist illegal alien crowd no matter what he says tonight. History proves they aren’t his friends. Therefore there’s little to be gained by reversing Trump’s campaign promise to deal with the immigration problem.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How Trump masterfully set the stage for a SOTU address for the ages

All eyes are on President Trump this week to see where issue discussions will lead. It could be a battle to the death over immigration is a fight Republicans should make. One way or another the president has set the stage for what promises to be a State of the Union speech to remember.

In a Trump Hunt, Beware Mueller’s Perjury Trap

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

At bottom, this is a political issue, an issue of power, an issue of whether the Trump revolution will be dethroned by the deep state it was sent to this capital to corral and contain. If Trump is guilty of attempted obstruction, it appears to be not of justice, but of an injustice being perpetrated against him. He should be in no hurry to respond to the FBI, for time no longer appears to be on Mueller’s side.

Trump Won’t Supply Rope for His Hanging

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The media only likes Republicans when they are passive and self-defeating. They are supposed to stand still while journalists smear them, dictate their policies, and determine their defenses, if any. What the media and the deep state can’t abide in Trump is his unwillingness to substitute their judgment for his. At the root of all the frenzied coverage is the ruling class’s arrogant pining for its lost privileges. They long for a past in which Republican presidents didn’t fight back.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: NFL’s AMVETS ad snub proves management learned nothing this season

The NFL would be doing America’s inner cities a favor by honoring the flag and those who serve it instead of denying basic free speech rights under the guise of political correctness. The days come and go but apparently Roger Goodell and company learned nothing from this season.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Thanks to amnesty ‘Only in America’ now has a negative sound to it

Only in America is there a compassionate people who might grant them their wish and allow them to stay. Illegal aliens shouldn’t be angry – they should be thankful. A border wall and internal enforcement is the least Democrats should offer in exchange for permission to remain here.

Mueller’s Fruit of the Poisonous Tree

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

What emerges from all this evidence of astonishing bias is a probe that didn’t seek to discover a crime but create one. This is not the slow unfolding of justice but scenes from a show trial, one in which the only serious crimes are committed by abusive prosecutors and investigators, so intoxicated by their own political self-righteousness that they can brag to their paramours about the “fix” on Trump.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Cheerleader in chief Trump deserves credit for great things he’s done

Leftists like those in the women’s march will continue taking to the streets to protest Trump but they’re looking more pathetic with each passing day. Republicans should keep advocating for the Trump agenda with the confidence Americans will make the right decisions come November.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Swamp creatures fighting fiercely to preserve big government in DC

Trump shouldn’t let the Democrats off the hook. If America’s elected officials are ever going to address the nation’s issues – including the national debt – they need to stop making excuses and face reality. Neither Trump nor the process is the problem; it’s DC’s swamp mentality.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Trump’s Fake News awards a wake-up call to biased American media

Donald Trump isn’t Joseph Stalin. There’s no Gulag waiting beyond the Blue Ridge for reporters who say things critical to the administration. In his “Fake News Awards” Trump also praised “many great reporters;” the people will be the judge on who’s in the right on this one.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: One year later the Donald Trump experiment is working like a charm

Republicans and Donald Trump aren’t the only ones who have relationships to repair. The media will blow any potential intraparty GOP differences way out of proportion. A year after President Trump was inaugurated the establishment is on the run and the party is largely unified.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Americans won’t let Dems turn compassion against them on DACA

Americans are compassionate but they’re not stupid; there may be a need to compromise on immigration but it must be a two-way street. Democrats who believe they’ll win the political battle over a government shutdown are sorely mistaken -- thankfully they won’t realize it until November.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: No way ‘Climate Change’ as national security threat passes a laugh test

National security dangers aren’t just in the eye of the beholder; some threats are by nature easier to spot – and deal with. Wise people on both sides of the climate change issue can’t even agree on whether it exists much less the risk warmer temperatures might represent to American interests.
