Outsiders vs. Insiders: Trump should be proud of his first 500 days…but there’s much more to do

Donald Trump has every right to be proud of his achievements over his first 500 days and Republican candidates should have plenty of good ways to sway voters this fall. Americans want a less intrusive government that functions properly and spends wisely. Will we ever get it?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: What do Mitt Romney and Roseanne have in common? Neither acts for us

In the big scheme of things Roseanne’s and Mitt Romney’s opinions of American culture and politics don’t really mean much. The world will little note nor long remember what they said – but it won’t forget what they’ve done. The culture war will continue – will it ever be won?

Stick to Netflix, Barack, and keep up the fiction, Bubba

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Heading into midterm elections in which history predicts massive wins for them, the donkey party has a new slogan: “Vote Democrat. The Party of Doom and Gloom.” First it was ousted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, now inexplicably serving as Minority Leader in the Wilderness, complaining about Republican tax cuts. Then pervy ex-President Bill Clinton was interviewed and refused to say whether the epic election that ousted his wife from politics and handed Donald Trump the White House was a legitimate election.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Unrepentant McConnell set to plague conservatives for years to come

The media will continue to make this year’s midterms all about the president, largely because Trump draws attention and stirs action. The lack of real reporting allows feckless leaders like Mitch McConnell to fly undetected under the public radar; by the time folks wake up it might be too late.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Congress’s slow-walking on immigration endangers Trump’s entire agenda

Not many politicians are making convincing cases that today’s most pressing problems will be solved – or even addressed – by Congress as it is. Washed up opportunists like John Kasich can write all the op-eds they want, but if Congress doesn’t get new leadership, nothing changes.

The Only Thing Worse For Republicans Than John McCain In The Senate

With her radical leftist views on same sex marriage and opposition to the Republican Party’s platform position on abortion, the only thing worse than having John McCain in the Senate would be for Governor Doug Ducey to appoint his liberal wife Cindy to succeed him.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Effective politics in 2018 means never having to say you’re sorry

Saying sorry definitely has its place in our culture but it really depends on what you’re apologizing for. Contrition for the sake of saving your rear or to make it look like something you’re not is truly stupid. Don’t believe it? Just ask President Trump – and John McCain.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Dems and #NeverTrump running short on time to oust Trump

Democrats and #NeverTrumpers will sustain their attacks on Donald Trump whether they have grounds to do so or not. To act otherwise would be to admit they were wrong about an “outsider” becoming president; and if that were the case, what’s the purpose of having them around at all?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Memorial Day provides a glimpse into what’s really important these days

Memorial Day is a time to venerate the past while looking optimistically at the future provided to us by our military’s sacrifice. Unfortunately, in today’s America people argue over whether to stand for the national anthem or conduct baseless investigations. The honored dead wouldn’t be proud.

Scalise To Conservative Grassroots: You’re The Problem

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
House Majority Whip Steve Scalise claimed in a recent email that Republicans are in danger of losing the House because the GOP’s base – grassroots conservative voters like you and me – aren’t giving establishment Republican politicians like him enough money.

Can We Hope To Keep Our Republic When One Of The Parties Supports Tyranny?

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

We cannot have a functioning republic where about half of the population actively supports the trappings of tyranny. We can’t. No nation, especially one full of citizens who zealously guard their freedom, can tolerate a double standard for political behavior. It won’t be double for long. The New Rules, should they become ingrained in our systems, will inevitably go both ways. They are going to hate the New Rules.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Delusional Democrats’ blue wave found only at the beach this weekend

Democrats are renowned for saying anything to coax the overly emotional to vote them back in office. Juan Williams could be right – Trump is motivating liberals like never before; when push comes to shove, however, are American voters really going to buy what they’re selling?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Why do the words ‘Make America Great Again’ make liberals so nutty?

American political leaders change every two, four or six years but cultural changes seem to evolve more slowly. We all hope we can reach a day where wearing a hat or a T-shirt in public won’t earn us scorn and intimidation from the intolerant left – but here’s thinking it won’t come anytime soon.

The proposal that could end Democratic obstruction of Trump’s judicial nominees

Carrie Severino, Washington Examiner

Confirming the president’s extraordinary judicial nominees is a top priority for me and my organization, the Judicial Crisis Network, and we are committed to doing whatever necessary to end this Democratic obstruction. That’s why we’ve launched a campaign in support of Sen. James Lankford’s gridlock reform. It’s time to tell the Senate Democrats who are obstructing Trump’s picks that they must stop playing games and start voting for qualified judicial nominees. Our courts—and our country—deserve better.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Want to win this year, Republicans? Support the coup against Ryan

If rumors circulated there was a “coup” in the works involving Mitch McConnell, conservatives wouldn’t require much prodding to flock to the insurgents’ banner. One way or another Republicans need new congressional leaders – a factor that would play well in this year’s elections.

Kanye and Democrats

Walter E. Williams, Townhall

Democrats could never afford for a large number of black people to observe, "We've been putting you in charge of our cities for decades. We even put a black Democrat in the White House. And what has it meant for us? Plus, the president you told us to hate has our unemployment rate near a record low." It turns out that it's black votes that count more to black and white politicians than black well-being, black academic excellence and black lives. As for black politicians and civil rights leaders, if they're going to sell their people down the river to keep Democrats in power, they ought to demand a higher price.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Establishment takes a whipping at the whims of the grassroots in 2018

Both parties appear to be searching for an identity (between the establishment forces of the swamp who resist change and the newer movements) and to make political leaders accountable for their promises. The internal fights will continue long after this year’s midterms – and that’s a good thing.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Post Texas, will reason prevail against the ‘Do Something!’ lynch mob?

Friday’s tragic school shooting in Texas won’t bring us any closer to solving what appears to be a growing societal quandary. There are too many issues at play to throw together a hasty “solution” that effects millions simply because the political class deems it necessary. Will common sense prevail?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Media hypocrites way off base to jab at Mike Pence for doing his job

Donald Trump’s asking Mike Pence to be his running mate two years ago could be his best and most lasting decision, a pronouncement that continues to pay dividends to this day. Pence is the epitome of a loyal subordinate no matter what the media reports to the contrary.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Look closely – the tide is receding quickly on the left’s 2018 blue wave

The only thing that makes sense in 21st century America is to argue for limited government principles, adherence to Constitutional confines and returning power to the states and local entities that can make real improvements in citizens’ lives. Republicans would be wise to follow the blueprint.
