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.

Dems Sifting The Air To Tie Vegas Shooting To Trump

When Democrats and the establishment media blame “gun nuts” and “white men w/ guns” for the acts of psychopaths, we conservatives should not take the bait and be bullied into buying the Left’s “blame the gun” narrative.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Las Vegas aftermath – guns don’t kill people, cultural rot does

Maybe instead of gun control we need to emphasize more morality in American society, particularly the Judeo Christian ethic of “Thou shalt not kill.” Religion alone won’t prevent all such acts from occurring but in a culture that’s as diseased as ours, it certainly couldn’t hurt.

The media is missing the Republican takeover in New England

Salena Zito, New York Post

Republicans, at some level, are competing in every state up and down the ballot, while Democrats are not competing anywhere but on the coasts and in the big cities. In short, they are a regionalized party, confined to the most densely populated parts of the nation — more cut off and compartmentalized than the GOP.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: ‘Trumpism’ may be a myth but grassroots contempt for the elites is real

History suggests voters were ready for Trump even before he climbed into the political ring and they’ll stay motivated until the ruling class is destroyed and the Constitution once again reigns supreme. Trump will be around a while longer; but the movement will last indefinitely.

How Silicon Valley Turned Off the Left and Right

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Both liberals and conservatives are just beginning to ask why Internet communications cannot be subject to the same rules applied to radio and television. Just because Silicon Valley is cool does not mean it could never become just another monopoly that got too greedy and turned off the left wing, the right wing, and everybody in between.

Back To Work In Alabama

Judge Roy Moore is everything the Far-Left hates about conservatives and America. We predict between now and Dec.12 they are going to throw everything – including the kitchen sink – at Judge Moore. Conservatives can't stop working just because Judge Moore has been outspent before and still won.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Are conservatives destined for Reagan vs. Ford part two in 2020?

Trump’s tough rhetoric is not only popular with Americans in general it’s extremely well received by conservatives. We still have a long way to go until 2020, but for now it’s hard to fathom how the outsider president would face a conservative primary challenger after one term.

Democrats Lose Touch With America

Josh Kraushaar, National Journal

What’s keeping the Democrats in a strategic straitjacket is that they’d get killed by their base if they sounded more assimilationist on immigration, more muscular on national security, or more understanding of fan disillusionment. It explains why Third Way, the centrist Democratic think tank, urged Democrats to pursue winnable Trump voters but struggled to identify a tangible way to get them back in the fold.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Isn’t it Strange how the GOP establishment is freaking over Roy Moore?

There’s little doubt Moore’s presence will make McConnell’s life more difficult, and if that’s the case, so be it. McConnell’s easy sailing has resulted in a GOP that wins elections but can’t function to pass legislation. If Moore alters the balance, it will be a good day indeed.

The Progressive Octopus

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Apparently in 2016, the deplorables and irredeemables struck back. Donald J. Trump symbolically served as a radiologically hot CAT scan that revealed long-festering inner metastases. Next, as deadly chemotherapy, he unpleasantly saturated the patient until the cancers within slowly began to fester and shrink — even as the convalescent resented the harsh therapy as much as he did the symptoms of the disease.

National Anthem Protests and the Disappearing Democratic Party

Eddie Zipperer, Lifezette

Whatever a small, angry, leftist mob screams, the Democrats scribble it on a post-it note and jam it into their platform. And the more they become the party of fringe groups and phony fringe issues, the more their power will evaporate into the political ether.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Can someone please tell us what the NFL flag protesters really want?

Until someone with credibility steps forward to articulate what it is exactly they’re demanding and what will satisfy them, the protesters will remain a sad joke in the eyes of the American public. It’s only a shame a beloved pastime like the NFL has to perish because of it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: The real losers in the Trump/NFL spat are the SOBs wearing the cleats

Whatever his motivations, President Trump found himself a real winner on the national anthem/flag issue. Picking a fight with the NFL is a no-lose situation for him. It’s only a shame that those in America’s most popular sport don’t acknowledge the obvious writing on the wall.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: John McCain’s betrayal of the conservative grassroots is treasonous

McCain’s “good conscience” is not enough reason to trample on the desires of his colleagues and people who put their faith in him to make sound decisions and protect their interests. The man with a storied and respected life will now leave only a legacy of betrayal and distrust.

Hollywood, a Town of Jesters Who Act like Kings

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

If anyone pushed low-brow entertainment into politics, it is the Democrats, who sit at the feet of fatuous late-night comics (from Bill Maher to Stephen Colbert) and sometimes turn them into senators (Al Franken). The Democrats pop up on shows with such luminaries as Joy Behar, who has all the moral authority and intellectual depth of a 19th-century bar maid, and act as if their elephantine huffs should dictate public policy. Only in this ethos could the headline “Senators Respond to Kimmel” be possible.

Build a wall around DACA

Editors, Washington Examiner

DACA carries the seeds of its own expansion. To prevent this, Trump and congressional Republicans should hold fast and make sure the bill is coupled not only with tougher immigration enforcement but also with root and branch reform of policies on green cards and visas.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Why simple truths & facts on race need defending in post-Obama America

We wish it were as easy as making things up when we’re in need of the details, but with the left’s virtually unchallenged promotion of falsities and lies on race, our society is in bad need of the truth. Therefore it’s up to all of us to be vigilant in defense of the real facts.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: ‘Presidential’ UN speech puts Trump’s world legitimacy crisis to rest

With greater international acceptance of his legitimate position as president, Trump’s domestic polling numbers will continue to tick up in the coming months. If the GOP Congress is able to add a few legislative victories to his resume Trump will look awful good indeed.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Donald Trump has become the epitome of the un-Republican

Donald Trump is doing things differently; he’s upset the Washington status quo and people are responding to it. Trump’s moves may look strange from a conventional standpoint but it’s clear there’s more to him than meets the eye. He’s very un-Republican-like indeed.
