Donald Trump

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Should conservatives be worried about what the media isn’t telling us?

Conservatives instinctively know to question everything that’s reported by the liberal mainstream news media but the recent flare-ups over the Correspondents’ dinner and the ongoing pampering of Hillary Clinton are especially troubling. How much bias is there and what are they not telling us?

Memo to Trump: Defy Mueller

Patrick J. Buchanan, Townhall

Trump needs to shift the struggle out of the legal arena, where Mueller and his men have superior weapons, and into the political arena, where he can bring his populous forces to bear in the decision as to his fate. This is the terrain on which Trump can win — an us-vs-them fight, before Congress and country, where not only the alleged crimes of Trump are aired but also the actual crimes committed to destroy him and to overturn his victory. Trump is a nationalist who puts America first both in trade and securing her frontiers against an historic invasion from the South. If he is overthrown, and the agenda for which America voted is trashed as well, it may be Middle America in the streets this time.

Mueller's Perjury Traps Widen

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

“I don’t do weasel moves,” Comey said to Trump during their infamous dinner. Those are the only moves he’s got, and Mueller, serving as a surrogate for his friend, is trying to make an impeachment case out of them. This is a hideous farce. Trump should refuse to participate in it. An ever-widening interrogation amounts to demanding that he supply the rope for his own hanging.

Trump leads in a different direction

Editors, Washington Examiner

Today, as the leaders on the Korean Peninsula call for a Nobel Peace Prize for Trump, as Trump has unified Sunni nations in a counterterrorism effort, as he begins work with Ukraine and the Baltic nations to counter Russia’s aggression, and as he fosters a bond with France’s Emmanuel Macron, it’s impossible with a straight face to call Trump an isolationist or say America has retreated from the world. Trump’s foreign policy record is one of America continuing its role as global leader — even if we’re leading in a direction that displeases John Kerry.

Not Being A Wimp Works

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

There’s a lesson there. It’s a lesson that was never learned by our betters like Ben Rhodes and Susan Rice and all the other bloody-handed fools who managed to hobble the most powerful nation on earth for nearly a decade at the cost of hundreds of thousands of American and foreign lives. The United States is powerful because it is strong, but only when it is ready, willing, and able to use that power to serve America’s interests. The world saw Barack Obama was weak, feckless and afraid. It sees that Donald Trump is none of those things, so it fears him.

Rod Rosenstein's Coup Against Trump Intensifies

Deputy Attorney General  Rod Rosenstein's government within the government has now crossed a line that is unacceptable. Rep. Mark Meadows has drafted eight articles of impeachment against Rosenstein. We urge CHQ readers to call Rep. Meadows, the toll-free Capitol Switchboard (1-866-220-0044) urge him to file the articles of impeachment against Rosenstein immediately.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: GOP’s secret weapon in November just could be the deranged Democrats

The end of the first week in May is never a good time to make accurate predictions as to what will happen on Election Day in November. A million things could occur in the next six months, but one factor will remain the same regardless – Democrats will always be Democrats.

The Federal Reserve’s War On Jobs

A year and a half into the Trump presidency the American economy has seen solid growth, more people in jobs and Wall Street has broken records on a regular basis. However, in the alternative universe where Wall Street’s Masters of the Universe and the mandarins who control America’s Federal Reserve Bank live, good news for America’s middle-income families is apparently bad news.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Ted Cruz speaks out on Senate inertia, ruling class makes lame excuses

The Republican “team” isn’t going to get anywhere by sitting on their hands and waiting for November to be over so they’ll know if they’re still in the majority or not. Senator Ted Cruz is the type of leader the GOP needs – the party should govern now like there’s no tomorrow.

Why President Trump Should Veto The Bill Prohibiting Him From Firing Robert Mueller

Daniel Oliver, The Federalist

By vetoing the bill (and having Congress override it), Trump could tell Congress and the nation that what Congress proposed is unconstitutional and that his sworn obligation is to support and defend the constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, whatever the political consequences may be. This could be Trump’s finest hour. The briar patch awaits.

If Only Hillary Had Won . . .

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

In sum, Hillary’s supposedly sure victory, not fear of breaking the law, prompted most of the current 2016 scandals, and her embittering defeat means they are not being addressed as scandals. Had Clinton been elected, what now seems illegal would have been appreciated as bullet points on a résumé making the case for promotion. Such apparatchiks would have been reminded that Team Clinton players were always rewarded for past — and future — administrative-state service.

Trump's assault on Jon Tester gives GOP room to run in Montana

Al Weaver, Washington Examiner

Republicans believe President Trump's public attacks against Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., is giving them a new opening against a Democratic incumbent, in a year when every Senate seat is important. The GOP is ready and willing to let Trump lead the way for them in Montana. According to a March survey, 50 percent of Montanans support the president compare to 46 who disapprove. Top Republicans believe the president has the ability to do to the incumbent Democrat what he did to many on his way to the presidency.

The Iran nuclear deal begins to crumble

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

If Mr. Trump, who boasts that he knows about negotiating deals and even wrote a book called “The Art of the Deal,” decides to renounce the treaty and start over, this could be the opening he needs. He could renounce the deal by declaring that it should have been a treaty, ratified by the U.S. Senate, and it must be replaced by proper order. Mr. Trump may never get a peace prize, but the Booby Prize is likely to go to his unhinged enemies at home, blinded by hate and disappointment. Losing hurts, and some of us just can’t get over it.

New CSP Study: Trump Is Right, Gun Free Zones Make Schools More Dangerous

Dr. Christopher Hull’s new study for CSP confirms the argument President Trump made after Parkland that a gun-free zone “is like target practice” for school shooters such as the alleged Florida killer, Nikolas Cruz. “They see that and that’s what they want,” said the President. “Gun-free zones are very dangerous. The bad guys love gun-free zones.”

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ guaranteed jobs proposal would savage American work ethic

Government can’t provide what it doesn’t possess nor can legally obtain. Democrats’ promising everyone a guaranteed job is not only unconstitutional, it’s impractical and would completely undermine the American work ethic. Perhaps most disturbing is the media’s acceptance of the scheme as serious.

I Cannot Handle All This Winning

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Democrats cannot afford to lose their lock on the minority vote – but minorities are now openly asking the question that terrifies liberals: “What have you done for us lately besides run your Chardonnay-guzzling mouths?” Don’t be down. Don’t be discouraged. We’re winning. And somewhere, in a dark room, Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit sits sucking down tumblers of Canadian Club and dreaming of the American Venezuela that might have been.

Conservatives Unanimous For Change: Jordan for Speaker

Perhaps we should have said near-unanimous: The latest FedUp PAC poll shows almost 99% agree that Rep. Jim Jordan would be more likely to successfully move President Trump’s conservative-populist agenda through the House.  Less than one-half of one percent believe California Rep. Kevin McCarthy would do a better job.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Americans need to see if Jim Jordan could make difference for the GOP

Jim Jordan is just the type of new leader who could really make a difference this year – not only in the upcoming midterm elections but also by helping accomplish the draining of the swamp. Here’s thinking voters would respond positively to the opportunity Jordan represents in this regard.

Judges who join the #Resistance are trouble for our legal system

Rich Lowry, New York Post

There’s a lawlessness rampant in the land, but it isn’t emanating from the Trump administration. The source is federal judges who are making a mockery of their profession by twisting the law to block the Trump administration’s immigration priorities. The saving grace of the judiciary is that the Supreme Court, as of now, takes its responsibility more seriously. The oral arguments suggest that the court will, despite absurd rulings below, uphold Trump’s travel ban.
