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.

We all know that if Steve Bannon is fired then Kellyanne Conway, Stephen Miller and the rest of the conservatives on the White House staff will soon be out the door as well.  Please contact the White House through the links in the article to urge President Trump to keep Steve Bannon on board.

President Trump's remarks about Charlottesville are controversial only because he refuses to buy into the caustic left’s narrative. Jeff Flake and other DC insiders are blind to this, which is why Trump will again win this debate.

Alabama Republican Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore is the real deal. A Bible-believing Christian and a constitutional originalist who lives the values he campaigns on and will not be intimidated or bought by the Washington establishment.

Shak Hill in VA-10 and State Representative Barry Moore in AL-2 are getting the attention of conservative handicappers in their campaigns against establishment congressional incumbents and we look forward to more principled limited government constitutional conservative candidates taking the fight to other “white flag” incumbents in other House districts.

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.

Alabama Republican Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore is the real deal. A Bible-believing Christian and a constitutional originalist who lives the values he campaigns on and will not be intimidated or bought by the Washington establishment.

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.

Call the White House today at 202-456-1111 or contact President Trump through Twitter at @realDonaldTrump or @POTUS and tell him Steve Bannon's continued service is essential to keep the winning Trump coalition together.

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.

No one knows what President Trump believes about the Koreas. He has made many contradictory comments while Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham have been talking up the likelihood of war.

It is bizarre that Virginia’s Democratic Governor Terry McAuliffe and Charlottesville city officials Mayor Mike Signer, Vice Mayor Wes Bellamy and Police Chief Al Thomas Jr. had tools to stop the riot and didn't use them.

More than 97% of self-identified conservatives said that McConnell needs to be replaced by “someone who will fulfill Republican campaign promises.” Only about 2% agreed with McConnell that President Trump is demonstrating “excessive expectations.”

    Virginia Secretary of Public Safety and Homeland Security Brian Moran told Richmond talk radio host Jeff Katz on Monday that Governor Terry McAuliffe “made the decision . . . to shut things down” at Emancipation Park in Charlottesville on the morning of August 12. The order to disperse was apparently only given to one side.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

    “Where does this all end?” President Trump asked. It doesn’t. Not until America’s histories and biographies are burned and new texts written to Nazify Lee, Jackson, Davis and all the rest, will a newly indoctrinated generation of Americans accede to this demand to tear down and destroy what their fathers cherished.

  • George Neumayr, The American Spectator

    The press had grown accustomed to Republican presidents who suffered under what might be called a conservative inferiority complex. Trump, fortunately, isn’t touched by it and is willing to call the self-appointed ruling class on its propaganda and lies. As phony Republicans and conservatives chase after the mob headed for Lee’s statue, there stands Trump like a stonewall.

    The Palestinians and the Norks do have much in common. They create crises and threaten to blow up the Middle East and/or the world in order to extort as much money as possible from the West, including the ever-generous Uncle Sam, only to knife him in the back and start all over again.

  • Tucker Carlson, Fox News

    "When you disagree with someone, it doesn't occur to you to pick up the phone and hash it out. You tweet it hoping for re-tweets. It's depressing as hell. Kristol isn't the only one who does this obviously. Washington is littered with formerly impressive people who now shout and preen on social media. But I hate to see it with him. I liked Bill Kristol once and I thought he liked me. What a shame."

  • Scott Rasmussen, Real Clear Politics

    Unfortunately, a commitment to our nation's founding ideals is lacking in our political leadership today. Some on the political left are uncomfortable with giving people freedom to decide for themselves; some on the right struggle with equality. And, politicians all across the spectrum would prefer to centralize power in their own hands rather than embrace self-governance.

  • Bill Donohue, CNS News

    Censoring speech, religion, and traditions is the mark of a totalitarian society, not a democratic one. But as Tocqueville instructed, there are times when the passion for equality in democratic nations turns to "delirium," and when that appetite is abetted by administrative centralization, it inexorably leads to despotism. That is the conversation we should be having.

  • Erick Erickson, The Resurgent

    American leftists have decided if you are not with them, you are evil and worth silencing. They will allow no alternative opinions and they will allow no dissent. They will not even allow people the courtesy of neutrality. So the average American will probably give them an electoral middle finger, deservedly so.

  • Eddie Scarry, Washington Examiner

    Members of the national media are disputing President Trump's decision to blame the "alt-left" for engaging in acts of violence, and many say there is no such thing even though the term has been used for months. The so-called "alt-right" is a term for a loosely defined nationalist movement. Neither the "alt-right" nor the "alt-left" originated with Trump but people on both sides use both terms.

  • David P. Goldman, PJ Media

    The best outcome would be to defuse the issue, and hope that people can walk away from it and get back to the business of getting an education and making a living. Nothing will console Southerners for their defeat in the Civil War; nothing will compensate African-Americans for hundreds of lost years. The best anyone can do is to find a way to live with it and get on with life.

  • Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

    There are no modern-day progressive muckrakers in the spirit of Upton Sinclair, Frank Norris, and Lincoln Steffens, warning of the dangers of techie monopolies or the astronomical accumulation of wealth. Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, and Facebook are worth nearly $1 trillion each. Hip billionaire corporatism is one of the strangest progressive hypocrisies of our times.

  • Michael Goodwin, New York Post

    The coercive demand for purity, enforced by violence, often feels staged for political effect aimed at Trump. The surge of sensitivity seems especially odd given that the issue was not as prominent during the tenure of Barack Obama, America’s only black president.

  • Mark J. Fitzgibbons, American Thinker

    This is a sad yet comical metaphor for the left’s view about civility. Polite yet pugnacious former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli was featured on CNN’s Chris Cuomo show Monday to discuss Charlottesville. With him as counterpoint was former Bernie Sanders press secretary Symone Sanders, who in 2016 said, "[W]e don't need white people leading the Democratic party right now." Both guests told the other to "shut up," yet only Cuccinelli was asked to apologize.

  • George Neumayr, The American Spectator

    The self-appointed ruling class is overflowing with egomaniacs and heartless operators who, oblivious to the irony of their own pouting, decry Trump’s “ego” and question his “heart.” Has America ever had to endure a more insufferable collection of frauds? When not sating themselves at Margaret Sanger award galas and Black Lives Matters powwows, they can be heard lecturing Americans on “racial healing” and a culture without violence.

  • Michelle Malkin, Real Clear Politics

    Silly string-spined CEOs have sided with social justice agitators, Beltway media enablers and Democratic resistance knuckleheads who believe Trump was wrong to condemn violence and hatred on all sides of the political spectrum. Never mind that of the four people arrested after the violent outbreak in Charlottesville, Virginia, this weekend, two were identified with the white nationalist movement and the other two were left-wing "antifa" counterprotesters.
