Outsiders vs. Insiders: Kavanaugh nomination to trigger 2018 version of DC political apocalypse

There’s no doubt the next few months will be an exciting time to be in Washington. All eyes will be on the senate as the two parties deliberate over Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s future. Democrats won’t hold back on the ferocity of their attacks on the man – will the republic survive?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Are unhinged Democrats on the verge of starting a violent insurrection?

Tensions in America aren’t dying down and ugly incidents are becoming the norm. The left is desperate to release the rage it feels over Donald Trump – and people like Juan Williams aren’t helping things. With a Supreme Court nomination to deal with now, it’ll only get worse.

Democrats Love Socialism Because They Want To Take Your Stuff And Enslave You

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Socialism means what’s theirs is theirs and so is what’s yours. Our private property – what we have worked for and accumulated over decades – is no longer ours. It’s theirs, to be done with – to be redistributed – as those in power wish. And if you object, they will send people with guns to make you comply. In contrast, in freedom and capitalism, the people with guns protect you from having what’s yours taken.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Suicidal Democrats risk disaster by defending the remorseless Waters

Liberals may think they’re laying the groundwork for political success by backing their own no matter what anyone says or does but they’re really just setting themselves up for failure. Maxine Waters has become a lightning rod for a reason – Democrats are suicidal to follow her lead.

If you love liberty, don't wish for Democratic victories

Editors, Washington Examiner

We understand conservatives who are angry, frustrated, and embarrassed by Trump. We have repeatedly called on Congress in the past two years to pass laws curbing executive powers. But as long as the Left wishes, nay reveals a determination, to destroy fundamental freedoms, nobody who values liberty should wish for a Democratic takeover of the federal government.

Why Maxine Waters Is Going Crazy

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Categorize the person and stamp out the individual. You're a black. You're a lesbian. You're a single mother.  That's all you are. A category. Someone to be exploited and then spit out. This is where today's Democratic Party is taking us and has taken us, consciously or not. It's what Maxine Waters depends on for her money and power. If you follow it to its logical conclusion what you get is something far closer to the Nazi Germany of The Master Race and The Final Solution than anything remotely to do with Donald Trump.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Immigration quagmire exposes both parties’ leadership deficit in DC

Leadership is in short supply for both parties and the American political situation has deteriorated because of it. No progress will ever be made on immigration until Republicans elect leaders willing to stand up for President Trump’s common-sense reforms. Democrats are simply hopeless.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Don’t allow ‘Chucky’ Schumer & Collins to blow up Trump’s Court pick

When the rubber hits the road public pressure will have little to do with whether President Trump’s new Supreme Court nominee is confirmed or not. Schumer and Democrats can shout “extreme!” all they want and it won’t matter. The power is in Republicans’ hands; will they use it?

The Next American Revolution: #WalkAway

David Catron, The American Spectator

All that is needed is about 5 percent more African-Americans to vote Republican and another 5 to 10 percent to simply stay home. And once they kick the Democrat habit, they won’t backslide. As Candace Owens puts it, paraphrasing Harriet Tubman, “I’ve seen black liberals go conservative, but never seen a black conservative go liberal.” So, let’s hope the Democrats and the “news” media keep dismissing #WalkAway. That means, to quote Reagan, “We win, they lose.”

When the left can't come to grips with losing power

Victor Davis Hanson, Washington Times

To progressives, Mr. Trump became not an opponent to be beaten with a better agenda, but an evil to be destroyed. Moderate Democrats were written off as dense; left-wing fringe elements were praised as clever. Voters in 2016 bristled at redistribution, open borders, bigger government and higher taxes, but progressives are now promising those voters even more of what they didn’t want. Furious over the sudden and unexpected loss of power, enraged progressives have so far done almost everything to lose even more of it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: America’s cultural split much deeper than clash between political tribes

Politics is not religion and there’s no such thing as partisan “tribes” unless people choose to create them in their own minds. America isn’t experiencing political sport and it's more serious than theater – we could be in the beginning stages of a civil war with no signs of a ceasefire.

Is Abolishing ICE the New Liberal Litmus Test?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Whatever one may think of Trump's policy of "zero tolerance" of immigrants who break into our country, for elites to smear the 20,000 men and women who risk their lives to keep us safe, as "terrorists" and "fascists," is an especially egregious form of liberal ingratitude. What is it in the DNA of the left that it is always ready to enlist in any new war on cops? The issue of 2018: Should we, or should we not, abolish ICE and embrace the progressive alternative of open borders?

The Democratic Party Has a Death Wish

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

All of us have moments of self-sabotage, but what we are witnessing with the Democratic Party now is a massive expression of this, approaching self-destruction.  Trump hatred has released something far deeper than anger at one person. The rage is projected outward at a supposedly unjust country, but also equally at themselves, mocking or inverting everything they previously stood for.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: 4th of July fireworks a prelude to political pyrotechnics over Court

No doubt there will be many things on the minds of Americans as they celebrate the nation’s independence tomorrow, with the specter of the looming fight over the Supreme Court hovering in the foreground. The fireworks display this year will just be a prelude to the political pyrotechnics to come.

Democrats' 1968 rerun will have a November like last

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

There is good news. In the summer of 1968, sober-minded American voters saw the daily drumbeat of the “Antifa” fascists on television. Voters did not freak out and riot back in the streets. They did not arm up and shoot back. No, they just showed up at the voting booth in November. And delivered one of the most stunning rebukes to the “Antifa” fascist crowd in U.S. history. So, “Antifa,” please, keep the riots going. And definitely keep up your calls to abolish ICE. That is a real winner.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Who better understands conservatives, George Will or Donald Trump?

The jury’s still out on who will vote for whom in this year’s elections, but one thing’s for sure: George Will and the #NeverTrumpers won’t have much say in it. President Trump’s approval numbers are inching up slowly and Americans aren’t dumb -- the Democrats present no realistic alternative.

Is it Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Party Now?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

While the victory of Ocasio-Cortez is bad news for Pelosi and Hoyer, it may also be a harbinger of what is to come. For the Democratic Party appears about to unleash its radical left, its Maxine Waters wing, and give its ideology another run in the yard. When the party has done this before, however, it did not end well. The new demography of the Democratic Party brought about the defeat of Crowley. A majority white district when he first ran, the Bronx-Queens district he now represents is only one-sixth white. The Irish and Italians have moved out or passed on. And Archie Bunker? He rests in peace in Calvary Cemetery. Like his party.

A new civil war is already upon us

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

With the increasingly heated rhetoric comparing ICE and Border Patrol agents to Nazis (yes, these kids are totally illiterate and never learned one minute of history), suggests this civil war is going to only get worse. Or just listen to the loudmouth leaders of the Democratic Party today, actually arguing that the president of the United States somehow does not have the authority — let alone constitutional responsibility by oath — to make sure America’s enemies do not infiltrate our country so that they can wage some barbaric jihad against American citizens. Yes, this civil war is upon us.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How do you spell game change in 2018? S-U-P-R-E-M-E C-O-U-R-T

President Trump likely didn’t beg Justice Kennedy to retire but no one would’ve blamed him if he had. Kennedy’s departure not only represents a golden opportunity to remake the Court for a generation, it also gives Republicans a winning cause to run on this fall. It’s game on for 2018.

The Democrats Go Full Venezuela

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Without Bernie, there would be no Alexandria Ocasio.  Sanders is a kind of child molester, dressing up for our extraordinarily uneducated younger generation this same tawdry ideology that is as totalitarian today in 2018 as it was in 1918 and doing it without the slightest acknowledgment of what transpired from those ideas.  He is in many ways a Father Coughlin of the left, a (somewhat) riveting speaker preying on the minds of a gullible public.
