Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats search for signs on how to bring down Trump in 2020

Odds are Joe Biden won’t get anywhere close to the presidency and neither will anyone from the epicenter of leftist angst, California. 2020, like every election, will depend on the candidates’ ability to generate sufficient enthusiasm to win a party nomination and then the general. The Democrats have an uphill climb.

This Week The GOP Decides Who It Is

The omnibus spending bill, slated to be an eye-popping, Obama-level $1 trillion-plus has become a catchall for practically every spending priority of the Democrats, while calls from conservatives for spending discipline and conservative policy riders have been given the cold shoulder by the House and Senate leadership.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Trump’s meeting with Kim Jong-un is a win-win, but only for U.S.

If I were Trump the first thing I’d do is offer Kim Jong-un a big hunk of cheese instead of an olive branch. The North Koreans aren’t interested in peace as much as the opportunity to persuade the U.S. to roll back its crippling economic sanctions. We’ll see how it all turns out.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: White men can’t jump and black folks can’t swim – shouldn’t we just laugh?

The world would be a better place if we could occasionally laugh and joke the way Deion Sanders did the other day at the NFL combine. There will always be occasions to treat certain subjects seriously – but if we’re to survive as a people maybe we’d just better smile and get over it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Hey Donald Trump, how can we get you to be more like Ronald Reagan?

We all know Trump is no Ronald Reagan, nor can he ever expect to be thought of in the same light as the man who saw America as the “Shining City on a Hill.” That said, Trump deserves the leeway to achieve his own vision of making America great again. I think we should give it to him.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats won’t defeat GOP in November but complacency just might

To immunize GOP voters from the lethal complacency bug the party must run strong conservative candidates, not just rubber-stamps who will march to Mitch McConnell’s drumbeat and fail to fight for Trump’s agenda. We need boat-rockers seeking to annihilate the status quo.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Tariff debate irks the intellectuals but Americans may take to the idea

The jury’s still out on the validity of trade protectionism. History seems to support many sides of the argument, but they can’t all be right. Perhaps President Trump is correct in saying it’s time for a change; either way it appears the swampy status quo is on its way out.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Should conservatives worry about Trump’s wobbly gun views?

Truth is, there are lots of things in Washington today causing Americans to do a double-take. President Trump is clearly interested in furthering the conversation on guns and willing to accept whatever Congress comes up with as long as it’s reasonable. For the rest? Wait and see.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Conservatives hope Hicks story won’t stall momentum of Trump agenda

The media will never cease complaining about the way Trump handles communications – or anything else the outsider non-politician who now occupies the Oval Office does. Critics are a dime a dozen in the swamp; what really counts is what’s getting done right before our eyes.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: It’s never too early to work for the second term of Donald Trump

With his early declaration of intention to run again in 2020 President Trump demonstrated he’s all-in on his agenda and committed to making America great again. In doing so Trump proved he’s a man of action and resolve. It’s time we got to work to ensure he gets his second term.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Divided Dems primed and ready to massively flunk 2018 midterm exams

One way or another both parties have a lot to contemplate ahead of this year’s midterms. The Republicans have their retirements and #NeverTrumpers, but the Democrats are battling over something much larger and potentially more destructive -- a fight over the soul of the party.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: What kind of (government) friend would leave us alone to die?

The old saying “A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out” is little comfort when you have no clue whether friends are even prepared to assist when the time is ripe. It’s a lesson 17 unfortunate souls in Florida will no longer have the opportunity to appreciate.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Instead of protesting guns, teens should clean sidewalks in San Fran

The media will always frame complex issues in the most biased way feasible. It’s easy to drum up sympathy for liberal causes by showing students chanting and holding signs in front of the White House; it’s much more difficult to face the realities of liberal governance head-on.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: ‘Normalization’ of Trump presidency leaves Dems on outside looking in

It’s only natural for American political observers to always consider the next election as the most important one of a generation – and this year’s midterms are no different. A lot can happen before November arrives; for now it’s probably best just to sit back and watch the show.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: CNN clown hall sideshow proves the Left’s out for much more than blood

President Trump needs fighters on issues like gun rights. Wednesday’s CNN town hall showed the opposition is intense and he’ll require reinforcements in Congress with the backbone to look people in the eye and hold firm on principles – otherwise the battle is lost already.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Why should today’s youth have final say over America’s gun laws?

Today’s youth has a lot to learn when it comes to real world survival and the fight to preserve precious constitutional rights. There will always be plenty of people telling them what to say – we can only hope they’ll grow brains to make original thoughts of their own.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Anyone who believes the GOP is a true conservative party, please stand up

Where are the conservatives in Congress? Certainly the GOP’s promises to forge a more conservative direction in government haven’t been realized in a lot of ways; the only answer is to make sure good people go to Washington and then hold them accountable once they get there.

Conservatives Want Ryan Out if Amnesty Passes House

Speaker Paul Ryan promised that no immigration reform bill would come before the House unless it was supported by a majority of House Republicans. If he breaks that promise almost 95% of conservatives responding to a recent FedUp PAC poll say that if Ryan breaks that promise he should be deposed as speaker and replaced by someone President Trump can trust.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Dems callously dump Dreamers and boast Repubs will take the fall

If the recently concluded senate immigration deliberations revealed anything, it showed Democrats aren’t serious about solving real problems. They’re only in it for the political chits they believe are up for grabs. With such a bankrupt outlook they shouldn’t be dispensing advice.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Resurgent ruling class plots to un-Cork(er) a Tennessee surprise

Much as we’d like to hope otherwise the establishment has not been vanquished by the recent successes of conservatives and the Trump administration. The fact they’re now trying to bring Bob Corker back from retirement indicates the swamp creatures are still very much alive.
