Texas Retirements May Bring New Conservative Stars To Congress

If Texas elects to Congress a slate of new conservative leaders it will be in no small measure due to the efforts of conservative Senator Ted Cruz. Cruz, facing his own reelection campaign this year, has still found time to make endorsements and campaign for candidates in at least four hotly contested Texas GOP Congressional primaries.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Anyone who believes the GOP is a true conservative party, please stand up

Where are the conservatives in Congress? Certainly the GOP’s promises to forge a more conservative direction in government haven’t been realized in a lot of ways; the only answer is to make sure good people go to Washington and then hold them accountable once they get there.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Dems callously dump Dreamers and boast Repubs will take the fall

If the recently concluded senate immigration deliberations revealed anything, it showed Democrats aren’t serious about solving real problems. They’re only in it for the political chits they believe are up for grabs. With such a bankrupt outlook they shouldn’t be dispensing advice.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Resurgent ruling class plots to un-Cork(er) a Tennessee surprise

Much as we’d like to hope otherwise the establishment has not been vanquished by the recent successes of conservatives and the Trump administration. The fact they’re now trying to bring Bob Corker back from retirement indicates the swamp creatures are still very much alive.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Media’s obsession with no-name Porter won’t derail Trump’s mission

The media will continue to chase whatever disreputable nonsense they believe will draw focus away from the “man behind the curtain.” But Americans aren’t fooled; Trump’s improving poll numbers prove the message is getting through – and that’s a good thing.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Infrastructure tizzy shows Democrats love bureaucracy more than people

President Trump’s infrastructure and various other budget proposals will be run through the political meat grinder and by the time they’re through they’ll likely be unrecognizable – if anything is done at all. The best Americans can hope for is a complete cleanse of Democrats this year.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Pelosi, Bernie & Hillary will send voters sprinting to the GOP in 2018

Everyone knows Republicans have issues. Recent events proved the party has completely abandoned fiscal restraint and there’s an internal struggle for the direction of the GOP with Trump right in the center of it. Compared to the Democrats, however, Republicans look sane.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: The Senate (and America) could use more ‘grandstanding’ from Rand Paul

Senator Rand Paul is a rare breed in Washington today, a politician who’s more concerned with the long game than he is about short-term expediency. America survived another government shutdown last week, but will it be so fortunate in the years to come? Time will tell.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How an ‘elevator pitch’ explains why conservatives like Donald Trump

Conservatives are happy they no longer have to separate Trump from his policies. Trump has grown into his role as chief executive, a process that’s taken time but is finally bearing fruit. Trump supporters can help him sell his agenda, too – better get that elevator pitch prepared.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Nightmare ‘Establishment Strikes Back’ sequel stirs up Washington swamp

If anyone needed further evidence that the DC swamp was alive and well, the events of this week provided it. Regardless of what happens with spending the mere proposal to ignore budget caps in such dramatic fashion was troubling and sets a horrible precedent for years to come.

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.

The Liberals and Their Conservative Chump Pals Hate Democracy

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Once we are driven out of power, we are not coming back – if the last couple years have taught us anything, it is that the establishment will use the full weight of the media, the culture and the government to assure that once they beat down our rebellion, they will never again risk allowing us access to a say in our own governance. Are you going to let them? Are you going to submit too? Or are you going to fight back?

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.
