Outsiders vs. Insiders: Even on Halloween liberals can’t trick people into believing them

There’s no hiding behind a mask for liberals pretending to be someone or something they’re not, even on this day. Most Americans see Halloween as an excuse to dress as someone we admire or wish to lampoon. Unfortunately for them, liberals can’t just dress as themselves.

DOJ Lifts Gag Order On Clinton - Uranium One Informant: What’s Next?

Now that the gag order has been lifted it is time for Attorney General Sessions to choose a side in the much larger question: Why was the nondisclosure agreement put in place to begin with, who demanded the informant sign it, and what was their relationship with Bill and Hillary Clinton?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: With Bannon as guardian angel the GOP senate will want to live again

Enacting Trump’s agenda into law is going to take leadership and actions by people who are willing to put themselves on the line politically to accomplish great things. To win, he’ll need more good senators in position. Men like Steve Bannon will make sure Trump gets them.

One Year Later, Coastal Elites Still Don’t Understand Why Voters Turned To Trump

John Daniel Davidson, The Federalist

Lost in all of this are the people across the Midwest who actually voted for Trump. They had their reasons, some of them good and some of them terrible. But a common theme was a seething discontent with the status quo, and not just the political establishment of the two major parties but also the media, which many people told me was part of the problem.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Smart money says Dems and GOP elites choke in must-win situations

Common sense says the pressure is on Democrats to prevail in the Virginia election in two weeks and on establishment Republicans to stave off conservatives in next year’s primaries. One way or another there are so many “must-win” scenarios that someone’s going to end up a loser.

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.

Brent Bozell: The Russian Facebook Fizzle

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

The media outlets most deeply invested in the narrative about Russia having somehow masterfully manipulated the 2016 election are beginning to struggle as the actual facts tumble out. Getting a closer look at the Russia Facebook postings doesn't help the Sore Loser Chorus. In fact, it demolishes it. Nothing the Clintonistas have cited as the "real killers" of her presidential hopes has turned out to be true.

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.
