Will Reelected Chancellor Merkel Spend the Money Necessary to Defend Germany?

Donald Trump’s criticisms of Europe and NATO are well-founded. Washington should stop providing the international equivalent of welfare for nations, such as Angela Merkel's Germany, that can and should defend themselves.

NFL Conflict Mirrors the Country’s Divide

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

We have been here before. At the Mexico City Olympics of 1968, gold and bronze medal-winning sprinters Tommie Smith and John Carlos each raised a black-gloved fist as a sign of solidarity with Black America, and not the nation they were sent to represent. A month later, America elected Richard Nixon.

Blowback Begins Against NFL #TakeTheKnee

A Denver car dealership founded by military hero Phil Long has pulled ads featuring Broncos player Von Miller who, along with many other members of the team, took a knee during the national anthem before Sunday's loss to Seattle.

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.

Roy Moore's supporters say Trump took wrong turn with Luther Strange endorsement

David M. Drucker, Washington Examiner

Roy Moore's loyal backers gathered in rural southwestern Alabama ahead of Tuesday's GOP primary runoff in this closely watched special election less than 24 hours after Trump stumped for Strange to the north in Huntsville, expressing their disappointment and vowing it would make little difference in the outcome.

Boycott the NFL

Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator

If whole NFL teams refuse to even take the field for the playing of the Star Spangled Banner — a national anthem that honors among many things the very freedom and civil rights that Dr. King and others gave their life for? Then, well, not to be inelegant but screw the cowards. Turn off the games. Don’t go to the games. Stop buying the endless merchandise.

Trump Wins When The NFL Takes A Knee

Scott Greer, Daily Caller

Trump’s involvement in the debate over national anthem protests shows him once again stepping into his kind of cultural war. No longer tied to religious or moral concerns, Trump’s forays into the culture war typically revolve around questions of national identity and pit middle Americans against various elites.

Trump Is Reinventing What It Means to Be a Politician

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Trump has completely reinvented the template of what it means to be a politician and it's no surprise that so may other politicians (not just John McCain) are publicly or privately appalled.  He has unmasked them.  They're worried and they should be because American politics will never be the same.

Whose Side Are You On, President Trump’s Or The NFL’s?

Rooting for one NFL team to beat another is like rooting for MSNBC to beat CNN – it’s not about sports – it is merely two giant corporations, mired in political correctness, battling to win the ratings game on TV. What do you think? Tell us by clicking this link to take our NFL vs Trump poll.

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.

Trump Signals Break From ‘Globoloney’ Transnationalism

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Trump is saying with John Quincy Adams that our mission is not to go “abroad in search of monsters to destroy,” but to “put America first.” He is repudiating the New World Order of Bush I, the democracy crusades of the neocons of the Bush II era, and the globaloney of Obama. If we do not cure ourselves of our interventionist addiction, it will end our republic. When did we dethrone our God and divinize democracy?

Conservative National Security Experts Urge President Trump to Withdraw From Obama's Nuclear Deal With Iran

Forty-five conservative national security experts, including CHQ Editor George Rasley, many of whom held senior positions in the nuclear weapons, arms control, nonproliferation and intelligence fields, sent a letter to President Trump endorsing a comprehensive plan, drafted by former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton, to withdraw the United States from the Obama - Iran nuclear weapons deal.

A Brief History Of North Korean Diplomatic Name Calling

The past two days of establishment meltdown show just how little the Democrats and the Left-leaning foreign policy establishment understand the North Koreans and the language of their diplomacy, where name-calling is a highly refined art.

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.

It looks like Obama did spy on Trump, just as he apparently did to me

Sharyl Attkisson, The Hill

It seems that government monitoring of journalists, members of Congress and political enemies — under multiple administrations — has become more common than anyone would have imagined two decades ago. So has the unmasking of sensitive and highly protected names by political officials.

All in all, Trump has had a pretty good eight months

Hugh Hewitt, Washington Post

Not perfect by any means, but a bag of big wins and mostly progress on many fronts. We await special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s conclusions, but as long as no indictments include the president or his family (and so far that looks to be the case), it will not trouble the president or his base. Keep the conservative judges coming, and the Trump coalition will hold. Get to 350 ships, and it will prosper.

MAGA Coalition Launches Grassroots Political Operation

The MAGA Coalition mission statement says it will reach out to everyday Americans and build an unprecedented model of grassroots activism. If they succeed, and we hope they do, no longer will we have to stand by and let the entrenched powers that be in the establishment dictate our future with apathy and inaction.

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.

All of Obama’s Wiretappers

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The scandal at the center of the 2016 election was not that Trump colluded with Russians to win but that the media and the Obama administration colluded with Hillary to defeat him. The loudest cries of “foreign influence over the election” came from Hillary partisans who sought it, whether it was John Brennan running off to England and Estonia to collect dirt on Trump from their spies or deep-state clowns at the FBI who wanted to turn Christopher Steele into an asset.

Trump's Move to the Left Ensures a Primary Opponent

Craig Shirley and Scott Mauer, Real Clear Politics

President Trump seems to be heading in the direction of Gerald Ford. He is going leftward by negotiating with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi instead of his own party’s leadership. It was met with great fanfare by the liberal media when he agreed to increase the debt limit. Several days later, he reassured DACA recipients that everything will work out to their favor – at the behest of Nancy Pelosi.
