Outsiders vs. Insiders: ‘Trumpism’ may be a myth but grassroots contempt for the elites is real

History suggests voters were ready for Trump even before he climbed into the political ring and they’ll stay motivated until the ruling class is destroyed and the Constitution once again reigns supreme. Trump will be around a while longer; but the movement will last indefinitely.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Are conservatives destined for Reagan vs. Ford part two in 2020?

Trump’s tough rhetoric is not only popular with Americans in general it’s extremely well received by conservatives. We still have a long way to go until 2020, but for now it’s hard to fathom how the outsider president would face a conservative primary challenger after one term.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Isn’t it Strange how the GOP establishment is freaking over Roy Moore?

There’s little doubt Moore’s presence will make McConnell’s life more difficult, and if that’s the case, so be it. McConnell’s easy sailing has resulted in a GOP that wins elections but can’t function to pass legislation. If Moore alters the balance, it will be a good day indeed.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Can someone please tell us what the NFL flag protesters really want?

Until someone with credibility steps forward to articulate what it is exactly they’re demanding and what will satisfy them, the protesters will remain a sad joke in the eyes of the American public. It’s only a shame a beloved pastime like the NFL has to perish because of it.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Donald Trump has become the epitome of the un-Republican

Donald Trump is doing things differently; he’s upset the Washington status quo and people are responding to it. Trump’s moves may look strange from a conventional standpoint but it’s clear there’s more to him than meets the eye. He’s very un-Republican-like indeed.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: By flirting with Dems is Trump just trying to make GOP leaders envious?

The days and weeks ahead will reveal more of what President Trump really thinks about immigration. For now conservatives should be confident that he has not yet revealed all of his cards. Above all Trump wants to keep his promises; perhaps he needs a little leeway to do just that.

Strike a Deal with China on North Korea

The administration’s best shot would be to mix diplomacy and sanctions in an initiative backed by the Chinese. But winning that assistance requires persuasion rather than compulsion. The administration must convince Beijing that pressing the North further is in China’s interest as well as America’s interest.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Establishment still suffers from Steve Bannon derangement syndrome

Donald Trump’s political legacy is yet to be fully written. He’s a one-of-a-kind force in American politics. If Republican leaders were smart they’d follow his lead or the voters just might recognize the GOP for what it’s become: an establishment party that doesn’t stand for anything.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Conservatives beware of West Wing Democrat salesmen bearing promises

Passing tax reform should be a no-brainer for the GOP. They run on the issue every year and there’s broad consensus that rates need to be cut. Donald Trump’s presidency could hinge on what takes place in the next few months; beyond that, the entire republic could be at stake.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Donald Trump’s 2020 reelection prospects already plain for all to see

If Donald Trump continues to push the right political buttons – and Republicans in Congress actually move forward on the agenda he articulated during last year’s campaign – he will win over more voters and his current popularity numbers won’t be a problem.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Betsy DeVos and Hillary Clinton -- a Tale of Two Washington Women

It used to be the Constitution brought Americans together but that’s no longer true. These days, as Betsy DeVos demonstrated, returning to our country’s founding principles only brings one scorn, condemnation and evil wishes from people who use the system for their own aims.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Could the best option on North Korea be to simply do nothing?

If some politician out there has a better solution than the man on the street to the North Korea situation, we’d all like to hear it. In the meantime Americans simply want their towns and cities protected and their sons and daughters to remain safely away from any military conflict.

Counterpoint: Why Should North Korea Believe the United States?

No one knows what President Trump believes about the Koreas. He has made many contradictory comments while Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham have been talking up the likelihood of war.

Will Donald Trump Start the Second Korean War?

There is no magic solution to the North Korea Problem. But military action should be a last resort, reserved for preempting a direct and imminent threat that doesn’t presently exist. Washington must avoid triggering the Second Korean War.
