Outsiders vs. Insiders: If GOP tax reform fails, prepare the way for President Bernie in 2020

It’s fair to surmise Bernie Sanders will never be president. With that being said, the GOP still has a long way to go in selling its tax plan and the benefits of the Trump agenda to the public. It could begin with passing a tax cut/reform bill by Christmas. As for the rest, wait and see.

Lawless Democrats launch a coup at the CFPB

Editors, Washington Examiner

It's slam-dunk clear that Trump has the power to appoint the acting director, just as he has the power to nominate all agency heads. The Democrats' takeover attempt is entirely lawless. In being so, it perfectly fits the CFPB, a rogue agency if ever there was one. The party of the Left created it to be unaccountable and to be run by their people. So far as they are concerned, the law be damned.

In Defense of Masculinity

Ned Ryun, American Greatness

We had a friend of the family growing up who was an air traffic controller. He said if a plane started off wrong by just an inch it’d be off by miles in the end. Little choices make the man, and by degrees, people shift with daily decisions to find themselves years later miles off course. The world is a better place with masculine gentlemen. It’s just we need more of them.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Should Kaepernick be used to highlight contrasts between R’s & D’s?

Conservatives should learn from the failures of the establishment and use things like Colin Kaepernick’s Un-Thanksgiving Day protest to highlight the differences between the two parties. Instead of wasting time and resources attacking conservatives, GOP leaders should get real and go after the true enemy.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How conservatives can channel Gen. Patton (& Vince Lombardi) in 2018

General George S. Patton provides salient advice for conservatives in today’s day and age. People like Mitch McConnell are all too willing to let the “body” (the ruling class culture) influence what the “mind” (the voters) is going to do. As conservatives we have our cultural filters and will decide on our own.

The Rules Don’t Apply To Democrat Bigwigs Like Rep. John Conyers

“Your story won’t do shit to him,” said a former staffer for Democratic Rep. John Conyers. “He’s untouchable.” Based on the Bill Clinton and Al Franken precedents it looks like the former staffer is right – at least if you are a powerful Democrat.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: On Thanksgiving 2017, a modern mixed bag of things to be grateful for

Like it or not, Thanksgiving isn’t what it used to be. While there remain plenty of great things to be thankful for this year, the vast majority of the political class isn’t one of them. President Trump may not be a perfect human being but there’s little doubt he’s immensely superior to the alternatives.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Are Trump’s tweets truly starting to wear thin with the American public?

This month’s elections should serve as a wakeup call for Trump and the GOP but the Twitter “wars” will only matter so much once it becomes evident the party’s policies are benefitting the economy. Trump may not make America Great Again via Twitter, but people may sense it’s happening in spite of it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: In the great battle for integrity, who wins, Neil Gorsuch or Al Franken?

The two political sides will continue to accuse each other of disqualifying transgressions that could conceivably bring government business to a standstill. Both sides can’t be right; thankfully conservatives have men like Neil Gorsuch to act as shining examples of integrity.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Sick U.S. media culture chastises the good but makes heroes of freaks

Ben Franklin allegedly once said, “We are all born ignorant but one must work hard to remain stupid.” With the rush to judge “normal” people and believe the bizarre claims of freakish outcasts these days, there’s an awful lot of stupidity maintenance work going on in abundance.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How NFL flag protesters helped corrupt the minds of America’s youth

No doubt the ongoing NFL protest controversy isn’t contributing to the advancement of political discourse in this country. The debasement of the American flag has already shown itself in the mindsets of young people in this country. Where do we possibly go from here?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: For the GOP Congress it’s pass tax cuts now or pay with defeats later

There is no simple answer to why the GOP underperformed in last week’s elections. Debate will go on for some time, but the grassroots’ patience isn’t unlimited and the Republicans’ control of Congress is only guaranteed for another year. Decision-time is at hand.

Stalking Horses of the Left

Walter E. Williams, CNS News

When hunting was the major source of food, hunters often used stalking horses as a means of sneaking up on their prey. They would synchronize their steps on the side of the horse away from their prey until they were close enough for a good shot. That's what blacks are to liberals and progressives in their efforts to transform America — stalking horses.

Democrats using Texas tragedy to advance agenda

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

If politicians, such as Mr. Obama and Ms. Warren, are serious about curbing this kind of violence, they would channel all of their political energies into enforcing current gun laws already on the books and doggedly striving to prevent criminals from illegally getting their hands on guns. Instead, Mr. Obama used some of the final power of his presidency to pardon more than 100 federal prison inmates who had been charged with gun crimes.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: The reemergence of Biden and Romney shows it’s déjà vu all over again

Like in a low-budget horror movie, America’s formulaic political plot seems to be repeating itself. The old villains are rising from the dead to plague the system and nothing much is getting done to alter the status quo in Washington. Maybe it’s time for the film to conclude.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Because he fights, Trump can’t be spared -- but he still must win the war

Donald Trump is no fool; one hopes he will accept the lessons of 2017 and alter his course enough to win the only political struggle remaining before him – namely, the battle to become popular. If Trump truly wants to make America great again, it’s his only means left to do it.

The Dems Are Running in Place

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Deeply invested in over-interpreting Tuesday’s results, the media seeks not to cover a 2018 “wave” but to create one by demoralizing Republicans. While the stupid party is fully capable of falling for this self-fulfilling coverage and cannibalizing its own candidates, that still won’t save the Dems, for whom much of the country remains too deplorable to recapture.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Republicans hold the key to their own success in the ‘18 midterm elections

There isn’t much use in trying to forecast what will happen in next year’s midterm elections so far in advance. For now, conservatives should focus on the things that can be controlled: nominating good candidates and pressing to pass President Trump’s winning agenda.

Voters Sent The Republicans A Wake-Up Message

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Maybe the most powerful line in American politics is “send them a message” and on Tuesday the voters sent Republicans a series of unmistakable messages.
