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.

Is War With Iran Or North Korea Inevitable?

Certainly, a nuclear-armed ICBM-equipped North Korea or Iran is intolerable to our interests and to the future of western civilization. The question for President Trump is at what point do the other options available to stop the threat be judged failures?

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.

Democrats Cover Up Menendez And Weinstein Corruption

While the salacious details of the Weinstein and Menendez affairs have occupied the public mind a more important question is left unaddressed: What did the other Democrats know about these two corrupt sexual predators and when did they know it?

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.

Dems Sue Trump for Abiding by Obamacare on Subsidies

David Catron, The American Spectator

The Obama administration quite literally stole money from the Treasury to bribe insurers with these illegal CSR payments. This was done over the objections of Congress as well as the reservations of Obama’s own IRS officials. Now that he has made good his escape, his accomplices at the state level are left holding an empty bag. If Obamacare is indeed the law of the land, let the Democrat AGs live with it as written.

The Real Reason Democrats Want To Repeal The Second Amendment And Confiscate Firearms

As Democrats move further to the Left their demands for radical social change will continue to grow, and their readiness to achieve it through violent means will grow commensurately. Individual firearms ownership remains the one sure impediment to their ambitions.

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.

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.

Menendez and Murphy: A Tale of Two Transgressors

John Fund, National Review

Anyone who has observed both major parties over the decades knows that each party has its share of fools, knaves, and outright crooks. But we should acknowledge that the foibles of Democrats take a lot longer to go to the center of the media’s radar screen.

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.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: In Trump’s world, if everyone thinks the same someone isn’t thinking

It could be true Trump has serious policy divergences with his advisers; whenever you’re new and strive to do things differently conflicts are bound to arise. We shouldn’t lose sight of the fact Washington must change -- or it will fail. A little discord is therefore acceptable.

Democrats find excuses for election losses in lawsuits

Editors, Washington Examiner

There is only one reason this case is being heard now. It is that Democrats still haven't accepted their loss in the 2016 election. They can fall back on Hillary Clinton's victory in the national popular vote, but they lost the popular vote for the House of Representatives. Incapable, apparently, of accepting that their ideas and candidates have fallen short, they are peddling to their demoralized followers the notion that they lost because of gerrymandering.

The Fake News About Machine Guns In Las Vegas Attack

A “bumpfire stock,” as was apparently used in the Las Vegas attack, is not a "machine gun" and does not change how the gun loads or fires – but that won't stop cynical Democrats from trying to ban them.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: More than ever, recent history proves police officers are on our side

Maybe Colin Kaepernick started all of this to launch his own political career. It’s obvious he needs a new gig where he can run his mouth and still have people love him for it. It’s highly unlikely his reception would be as welcome or merited as the return of Steve Scalise, however.
