Is The Fed Trying To Tank The Trump Economy Before The Midterms?

The Federal Reserve has raised rates recently and expects to do so again soon. Translation for those not aligned with the Wall Street – Washington – Silicon Valley Axis: The Fed wants to stifle your wage growth and job mobility by establishing a so-called neutral level that neither spurs nor slows economic growth.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats about to discover conservatives’ angst that lies beneath

It’s only a matter of time before we find out if there’s another Andrew Breitbart out there or how many Democrats will be defeated in a few weeks due to the party’s outlandish treatment of now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh. What comes around goes around, a principle Democrats have yet to absorb.

Singing only sad songs is no fun

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Democrats and the liberals were winning for so long that it never occurred to any of them that the good old days wouldn’t last forever. But the good old days didn’t, and now they’re as ill-tempered as the alligator the day the creek went dry. Democrats have won many elections under the rules obtaining, and they will one day elect presidents again who nominate men and women to the Supreme Court. The fault, the Bard said, is not in the stars, but in ourselves. That can be a painful lesson, but not learning it will be most painful of all.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: 50 out of 51 GOPers did right on Kavanaugh, isn’t it time to celebrate?

The left’s intimidation tactics didn’t work on Senators Collins, Graham and even Jeff Flake -- and they shouldn’t have. If America’s political system is ever to get back on track Republicans need to stick together to honor this “new” unity. Otherwise, things could get ugly really fast.

We'll Remember In November: This Kavanaugh Witch Hunt Is Radicalizing Us Normals

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

We are not going to forget what happened here. And this is going to have a lasting impact, but not one the Democrats are going to like. As my friend, the fabulous Larry O'Connor, observes, Andrew Brietbart was radicalized by the Clarence Thomas hearings and the manifest injustice that this brave man endured at the hands of lying, hypocritical Democrats like noted aquatic Oldsmobile operator Ted Glug Glug Vroom Vroom Kennedy. Hey Dems, we’re woke, and your go-to tactic of destroying our people? Broke. See ya next month.

A savage, frothing Left has united Republicans around Trump

Noemie Emery, Washington Examiner

Democrats en masse turned their backs on the presumption of innocence, willing to wreck one man’s life over one allegation that never seemed grounded in fact. Everything the Never Trumpers had feared was about to take place was indeed coming at them, but not from Trump. It was coming from the people who claimed that they were his opponents. This has changed the Never Trumpers’ ideas about who was their enemy. How long they can hold to this formulation depends on the Left, and on him.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Bumbling senate Dems provide ample kindling for GOP grassroots fire

In the aftermath of the confirmation war over Brett Kavanaugh there’s a tangible feeling America has changed – and the Republican Party along with it. There’s nothing quite like watching a good man being irrationally attacked to bring out the beast in righteous people. Democrats are yet to feel the sting.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Donald Trump’s ‘doctrine of patriotism’ sets standard for world peace

Trump’s “doctrine of patriotism” will accomplish its goal of fostering world peace and prosperity among sovereign nations. Leftists and some conservative dreamers believe all the world’s peoples can be stuffed in one little box and emerge in harmony; reality says it ain’t so.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats must pay for treating Americans like addlebrained idiots

Democrats really do think we’re that dumb. They’ve turned the “advice and consent” process into a political sideshow that’s got men everywhere terrified of juvenile sins that might crop up now. We shouldn’t ever have to worry about what’s in a high school yearbook, should we? For this, Democrats must be made to pay at the ballot box.

Kavanaugh fight boosts Republicans in red states

W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

Before Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee, it looked like a lose-lose situation for Republicans: Abandon Kavanaugh and depress the base ahead of the midterm elections; attack Ford and reap the whirlwind with women come November. Now it is possible the battle over Kavanaugh could rally apathetic Republican voters, especially in the red states that will decide which party controls the Senate. It has reminded conservatives that whatever their views of President Trump, they are unlikely to be treated fairly by Democrats or a hostile media.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Treachery on Kavanaugh would trigger a massive justified RINO hunt

As Lindsey Graham articulated so eloquently last Thursday, the Kavanaugh nomination is about confirming a good man to the Supreme Court, not opening the door to fantastic character assassination by self-serving politicians. Any Republican who votes no isn’t a hero – they’re a RINO goat.

GOP Must Nationalize The Election On Kavanaugh Confirmation

The Kavanaugh confirmation battle is motivating conservative voters in North Dakota, West Virginia, Missouri and other states. Republican candidates who play small ball – campaigning on local issues – are likely to lose this November, because the Kavanaugh confirmation is the one big issue that seems to be moving voters right now.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Blood infatuated media fools no one with barefaced Kavanaugh slander

It's no secret the establishment media delights in reporting on pain and sleaze but the Kavanaugh episode represents a particularly egregious example. Democrats insist Republicans will pay for failing to take Christine Blasey Ford’s side of the story, but Americans see through the ruse.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Republicans learning the hard way a great economy ain’t enough anymore

Objectively speaking Republicans should be doing better this year. With so many things going in their favor the public isn’t responding the way the elites hoped – but there’s still time to turn things around. The GOP can start by confirming Brett Kavanaugh, then fight like Donald Trump.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: All hail the new breed of fiercely combative and fighting Republicans

It’s hard to predict how the Kavanaugh saga ends but America’s political class received a severe jolt last week. Conservatives searched long and hard for someone other than Trump to stand up to the ugly left – and thanks to a normally calm judge and a reformed RINO senator, we finally got it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Kavanaugh is right; we now have good reason to fear for the future

If Kavanaugh goes down Trump’s strategy is still the same – send forward qualified originalist conservatives and let the Democrats keep disemboweling themselves ahead of the 2020 election. Regardless, the country will never be the same after this is all over – is it the end or a new beginning?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ sick stalking of Kavanaugh disqualifies them from humanity

Whether or not Kavanaugh’s teen history truly constitutes a “disqualifying event” Democrats and the media will treat it that way regardless. Decency and fairness are in short supply these days – if you’re Ted Cruz you can’t even go to a restaurant without being harassed. Is it sick? You decide.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Republicans must hang together now or they’ll hang separately later

The best solutions to problems aren’t always the ones that cost the most money, something Washington politicians have a hard time realizing. Republicans would accomplish a lot more if they’d cast off their phony “bipartisan” appearances and act more like Democrats…and hang together.

Republicans Have A Simple Choice: Vote To Confirm Kavanaugh Or Get Slaughtered In November

Sean Davis, The Federalist

If GOP lawmakers show that they do have a spine and are no longer willing to let the other side get away with reputation murder, they might actually keep both their House and Senate majorities in November. As Trump has shown, even discouraged Republican voters are willing to stand behind somebody who’s willing to stand up for them. If Republicans do the right thing, they will be rewarded at the polls. If they continue to cower and allow themselves to be bullied by tinpot totalitarians like Chuck Schumer and Mazie Hirono, then they’re going to deserve everything that’s coming to them in November.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ second verse same as the first – why the Kavanaugh sliming?

Should Republican senators fail to pass Kavanaugh through the system and confirm him there will be consequences for the GOP as a whole. Voters want leaders who stand up for what’s right, not elected cowards who shiver at rumors and scurrilous gossip. Will the truth prevail here?
