Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ empty plate of lies on Russia leaves them wholly unsatisfied

The left cannot be bargained with; its shock troops don’t listen to reason and don’t care in the slightest that they’re perceived as violent disruptors. They feast on chaos, which I guess helps to make up for the lack of substance they’re able to ingest in matters like the Russia probe.

Trump's impatience with GOP establishment grows

Alexander Bolton, The Hill

An impatient President Trump is putting new pressure on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to get rid of the filibuster in order to speed progress on legislation repealing ObamaCare and reforming the tax code. In a message posted Tuesday on Twitter, Trump urged Republican senators to invoke the so-called nuclear option and “switch to 51 votes, immediately, and get Healthcare and TAX CUTS approved, fast and easy.”

Mark Green Says Army Secretary Nomination Derailed by Partisan Smear Campaign and Single Democrat Senator

Tennessee Star Staff, Tennessee Star

The radical Left and their complicit allies in the mainstream media portrayed Green as a homophobe and anti-Muslim extremist, who was unacceptable to serve as Secretary of the Army because of his Bible-believing Christian faith. Green is concerned that other nominees who are Christians may suffer the same fate if the process allowing a single hold to block a nomination continues to prevail over fairness, truth and qualifications.

The Vast Conspiracies To Take Out Hillary Clinton

Rush is right – if Hillary Clinton was defeated by a vast Russian conspiracy, it’s a conspiracy so good that no one can find it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Just how low will the sick establishment media culture go?

What at one time was an organ for reporting facts for public digestion now has devolved into a tabloid industry that feeds off of our sick culture’s hunger for bad news. Like Roman emperors, the media gives the people what they seem to crave – blood and despair.

Why #NeverTrumpers Still Attack Trump

Dennis Prager, National Review

They can join the fight. They can accept an imperfect reality and acknowledge that we are in a civil war, and that Trump, with all his flaws, is our general. If this general is going to win, he needs the best fighters. But too many of them, some of the best minds of the conservative movement, are AWOL.

Merkel Throws Trump in the Briar Patch

David P. Goldman, PJ Media

Donald Trump and Angela Merkel now agree about the main issues in U.S.-German relations. But Merkel is running for re-election to a fourth term in next September’s national elections, and it does her more good to denounce Trump than to speak of policy convergence. The German public hates Donald Trump with a visceral passion.

An update on the Trump revolution

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

The contempt the political establishment has for the American people has been clear for some time, and now it’s mutual. The constant efforts to obstruct the president and effectively nullify the 2016 election is backfiring. But the swamp’s blind hatred for Donald Trump kept them from seeing reality during last year’s election, and they’re making the same mistakes now.

Still waiting for Obama to be quiet

Editors, Washington Examiner

President George W. Bush waited years before commenting on Obama's presidency, explaining in 2009 that his successor "deserves my silence." And when he did break that silence, Bush didn't do it while parading with foreign leaders. Professor Obama sometimes referred to events as "teaching moments." This is another one. It is to be hoped that he learns to get off the stage — he's had his time — and to maintain a more dignified silence.

Media Buries Trump’s Good Economic News

Obsessed as the establishment media is with fake news, you’d never know that – thanks in large measure to President Trump’s deregulation and economic policies – we are rapidly closing-in on the 4 percent economic growth target the President set during the campaign.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Dems and GOP centrists vie for title of lead Trump obstructionists

Now that focus returns to domestic policy, plenty of obstruction awaits Trump and conservatives from the left and the establishment center as well. The resistance to change isn’t always partisan and ideological; it will be an uphill battle to truly drain the swamp in Washington.

Breakup of the West?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

The European half of Trump’s trip should be taken as a fire-bell-in-the-night warning: Shape up, Europe, or you may find yourselves on your own when it comes to the defense of your continent. For we Americans have had about enough.

Forget Russian Collusion. We ARE Russia.

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

American democracy was being stolen from us. Our system was headed -- and still is headed if we don't stop this -- in the direction of Iran's with our  virtually unsupervised intel agencies playing the role of the mullahs' Assembly of Experts, controlling whom we could vote for and what would happen after they were elected.

Trump leaks put critical surveillance tool at risk

Susan Ferrechio, Washington Examiner

Section 702 of the FISA law gives the Intelligence Community the authority to eavesdrop on communications of foreigners outside the United States. The provision may have also been used to target President Trump's transition office after the election, some Republicans believe. Republicans believe the leaks were carried out for political purposes by Obama administration officials and holdovers aiming to damage the Trump administration.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: This summer, brace yourself for the season of all-out political war

Our president is going to need help in the days to come. The Democrats will see any increase in Trump’s popularity as a sign they need to ramp-up their vitriolic distracting Russia nonsense. It isn’t about pleasing one demographic group or constituency anymore; it’s all out political war.

President Trump’s Response Half-Right on NATO

While they like being protected by America, Europeans don’t need America to protect them. They have a larger economy and population than the U.S. and vastly bigger than Russia. The issue is not capability, but willingness to do more militarily.

The Importance of President Trump’s Speech to NATO

The most important part of his speech was not the part where he played bill collector for America’s hard-pressed taxpayers. It was where he delivered the same message to the European leaders that he delivered a few days before in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to the leaders of Muslim majority nations.

Leakers and Journalists Are Destroying Our Republic

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The leakers need to go to jail with the proverbial key thrown away. That is only way this leaking will stop and stop it must. Prosecutions should have started months ago. It's hard to understand why it's taken so long. Let's hope we have indictments soon. Like tomorrow. Regarding journalists, they need an entire new code of ethics.

Trump Faces the Fury of a Scorned Ruling Class

George Melloan, Wall Street Journal

The “threat” that has Washington quaking is the first serious effort in a long time to curb federal regulatory power, wasteful spending, and a propensity to run up mountainous budget deficits and debt. That’s presumably what the voters wanted when they elected Donald Trump. Democrats—accurately regarded as the party of government—seem to fear that Mr. Trump might actually, against all odds, pull it off.

Trump Should Ignore Pope’s Prattle About Paris Deal

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Never had the global left’s use of the Vatican as a propaganda tool been more blatant. Once wary of the Vatican, environmentalists now rejoice openly at their unprecedented access to it and the bully pulpit that Pope Francis has offered them. Many of these environmentalists are anti-Catholic Marxists who support aggressive forms of population control.
