Outsiders vs. Insiders: Frustrated American pols fruitlessly seek help for Trump obsession

President Trump occupies the minds of both Democrats and Republicans these days. With two months to go until the midterm elections – and the 2020 presidential campaign starting just after – Trump shows no signs of relinquishing his position as leader of the American political scene.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Asinine flag protests & boycotts translate to GOP wins on Election Day

As we head into the post-Labor Day campaign season it’s clear the left is not offering a ceasefire in the culture war to further the prospects of Democrat candidates. Conservatives must see the ongoing NFL flag protests and In-n-Out burger boycott as an invitation to beat them in two months.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Trump’s pro-American worker push makes Labor Day a time to celebrate

Labor Day is a time to step back and celebrate work and enjoy the fruits of our exertions. Americans are fortunate to have a leader like President Trump who isn’t afraid to do what it takes to give us more of a good thing – jobs and paychecks. There’s plenty of political strife to come.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Who do you trust more on government, Reagan or 'Pocahontas' Warren?

Ronald Reagan was right – if you’ve got a government agent at your door promising help it’s more likely a dilemma than a beneficial thing. People like Sen. Elizabeth Warren may disagree but Americans know better – the farther government stays away from your personal business, the better.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Even in death it’s hard to grapple with the legacy of ‘maverick’ McCain

John McCain is gone. With him went one of American politics’ most unique and controversial political figures. If it was McCain’s goal to have historians poring over his life for decades to come, he’ll certainly get his way. As for conservatives, we hope he’s the last of his kind.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Mollie Tibbetts’ murder trumps Mueller scapegoats in leadup to midterms

No matter how hard they may try, Donald Trump’s opponents can’t distract from the issues Americans care most about. Democrats and the media obsess about the latest happenings in the Robert Mueller investigation but voters are much more likely to remember Mollie Tibbetts.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats may bluster but they won't impeach Trump next year

Democrats hate all Republican presidents, period. Donald Trump just happens to be one with a Democrat-like personal history so they despise him especially. To Democrats, Trump is akin to a traitor; they desperately want to hang him but can’t spare the impeachment noose.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Media’s outright lies and distortions cloak true portrait of Trump

President Trump deserves much credit for weathering the media tempest that’s swirling around him at all times. The president generates much of the news himself, of course, but conservatives should admire a politician who so willingly endures the worst to make America great again.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If GOPers care about winning in 2018 they’ll play follow the leader

Republicans should take comfort that the fate of their congressional majorities rests in their own hands this year if they’ll only cast off the advice of the “experts” and follow the lead of President Trump. GOP candidates must nationalize the election by hitting hard on the issues people care about most.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Dems dive off socialism deep end; Republicans should pull up the ladder

Liberals argue limited government conservatism doesn’t appeal to a mass audience. It isn’t true, but there’s no doubt socialism turns off huge swaths of Americans. Free people understand you can’t get something for nothing, a truism that’s proving very hard to swallow for Democrats.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: AWOL GOP senators could sink the party’s midterm chances early

Unique outlooks are what each representative and senator is supposed to bring to work in Congress – and can only be accomplished by showing up and fighting for the issues they campaigned on. If Republicans continue to drop the ball through apathy, voters won’t be pleased.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Media exploits ‘Lowlife’ Omarosa to distract from Trumpian MAGA reality

Critics claim the Trump administration plays like a “reality show” when in fact America hasn’t been run this efficiently and effectively in a long time. Trump haters see people like Omarosa and think the White House is in disarray; those who pay attention recognize the real truth.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: DC pundits’ prevailing wisdom trumped by voter wrath and rage at elites

Purveyors of the “prevailing wisdom” will never accept that Washington must change and new leaders are desperately needed to foster it. Installing Jim Jordan as Speaker would be a good place to start, but even then the battle over the DC capital’s culture would just be commencing.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Liberals still trying to milk racism out of Charlottesville a year later

The anniversary of last year’s Charlottesville incident came and went, but liberals shouldn’t fret – there’ll be another one next year. Leftists need every possible reminder of their sinister causes they can get – and they’ll use them too. It’s all part of the ongoing battle for control of American culture.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: When did it become okay to dis the culture & traditional America values?

America does look different today and many of us are upset about it. The changes resulted from a devolution of culture where it’s no longer considered mandatory by the elites to express regular reverence for God, tradition and country. If we’re truly better off for it, can someone explain how?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Media mis-information detracts from quality of American public debate

Mark Twain was right – without a competent media you aren’t informed, but if you pay too much attention to the wrong sources, you’re mis-informed. We can’t necessarily control what we read but there is leeway to choose what to believe. Remember this the next time talk turns to politics.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Frantic establishment media spins victory into defeat for the GOP

The media may spin last week’s special elections results as a net-win for Democrats but it’s the Donald Trump-led Republican party that’s sending winners to Congress time after time. The party still has much work to do ahead of November but don’t be fooled – the GOP glass is at least half-full.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Are libertarians wrong to pick a fight with the new Donald Trump GOP?

Debate will continue as to libertarianism’s place within the larger body of conservatism. To remain viable the GOP must appeal to all believers in small or limited government, something Donald Trump needs to understand. Will the GOP congressional leadership go along as well?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Have GOP leaders turned traitor or will they act before it’s too late?

Conservatives deserve better than they’re getting from the GOP congressional leadership, a collection of establishment politicians who always take the easy way out when confronted with a challenge. A change is needed – hopefully it won’t be forced upon us by this year’s elections.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Liberals initiated the culture wars, let them feel the noxious effects

President Trump is entirely correct to take sides in the culture war and if he needs to bring up LeBron James’s name to cause a stir and get people to focus on what’s going on out there, so be it. Democrats are the ones who’ve turned up the rhetorical heat – let them bathe in the burnt-out ashes.
