Outsiders vs. Insiders: 2018’s split decision goes to Donald Trump and his Senate Republicans

Donald Trump will act like nothing’s different after all of this… but will everyone else? American politics is at best an unpredictable exercise. 2018 proved to be about what most people thought – lots of surprises and upsets… and pollsters who’re eating crow today. The next two years will be fascinating to watch.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: 2018 elections a wakeup call to the ruling class regardless of outcome

Win or lose, today marks the end of the beginning. The Trump administration’s first two years were a resounding success and the president will sustain the momentum regardless of which party controls the House come January. Voting is a civic duty – never more so than this year.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ closing pitch reads like something out of the kook handbook

Tomorrow’s election is crucial to President Trump’s drive to make America great again. Democrats’ inability to expand their coalition beyond goodie-grabbers and disaffected leftist “resistance” loonies is telling. Americans shouldn’t let them get away with it…vote Republican.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: In 2018’s rapid dash to the election R’s tout security, D’s pound race

With just days to go until Americans vote in the midterm elections both parties are busy making their closing arguments to voters on the importance of congressional majorities. Republicans make it all about security, Democrats just want to talk healthcare, race and gender.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Life-changing events shine spotlight on 2018’s electoral consequences

In our troubled times life-changing events occur whether we’re ready for them or not. Some respond by purchasing a gun to protect themselves while others continue faulting political leaders for making things worse. Elections do have consequences – let’s hope they’re all good this year.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How Halloween’s been ruined by the politically correct thought police

Halloween isn’t the only day Americans wish things could be the way it used to be. Politics has creeped unwantedly into every aspect of our lives – and there’s no going back now. Perhaps today we should take a break from the turmoil and remember the good things in life – and tomorrow start a new trend.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Pundits pontificate on election odds but voters decide from the booth

Both sides’ advocates will use the remaining days before next week’s elections to make their cases on which party will ultimately control the House. Opinions are worth what you pay for them – but voters determine the results. Conservatives are on fire this year; will good things happen?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: From illegal caravans to economic growth Trump is America’s motivator

Some may not like Trump’s style but he gets results. Instead of equivocating like so many American leaders before him Trump states his positions and backs them up with unrivaled energy and action, qualities conservatives used to only dream about. November 6 couldn’t come soon enough.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ ‘fright night at the voting booth’ won’t scare them to victory

Democrats’ lame attempts to scare people over healthcare and the family separation issue won’t motivate undecideds and independents to vote for them on Election Day. Smart people see through the ruse; President Trump and Republicans would be wise to expose the Democrats’ lies.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Anonymous packages mean bombs away on Americans’ common sense

Political civility took another hit this week courtesy of anonymous mail packages to Democrats allegedly containing explosives. Liberals and the media milked the occasion for all it was worth, no doubt hoping to gain traction in the upcoming elections. Ultimately, we all lose because of it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: 2 weeks from elections R’s amp up the base and D’s wonder what to say

In a country as large and complex as the United States, it’s odd that control of the government occasionally boils down to one or two political races. It could be that way again in two weeks. Both sides are pulling out all stops to get voters to the polls. Who will carry the day?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Big shock, media! Voters don’t care a lick about Saudi corruption

The media’s and leftist political class’s disconnect with Americans over the seriousness of threats and situations abroad is hard to reconcile. Elites may think President Trump is in trouble over Saudi Arabia’s complicity in a murder but voters prefer things that really matter.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Red State Dems’ faux ‘moderate’ claims fall flat under glare of truth

Politicians aren’t exactly renowned for their truth-telling abilities but Democrats in particular seem susceptible to the “liar” bug. Voters must be trusted to do the right thing in two weeks and here’s thinking Donald Trump’s tweets or Democrat lies won’t deter them from doing so.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ ‘Pocahontas’ Warren politics is as bogus as an Indian Summer

Perhaps Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren is the clever one – she’s found a way to distinguish herself in manner that makes her a sympathetic character and Trump the bad guy. The American public feels differently, however, and Democrats will pay a price for defending the indefensible.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: For R’s and D’s in 2018, ‘working together’ just ain’t in the stars

Don’t count on R’s and D’s working together to solve the nation’s issues anytime soon. Trump’s shown a worrisome (to conservatives) tendency to compromise on certain topics but Democrats simply won’t meet halfway on anything meaningful. No one wins…and everyone loses.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If wishes were fishes Democrats would have everyone eating sushi

Democrats wish for a lot of things, but their cure for the issue “ailments” would end up worse for America than the “disease.” Voters have a chance to stave off endless stupid investigations and Democrat chicanery by voting Republican on November 6. Will conservatives step up?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Dems’ beautiful blue wave more like stagnant algae-filled millpond

Democrats seriously blundered by forecasting an ominous “blue wave” would clean Republicans out of Congress simply because of Donald Trump’s personality. Americans aren’t gullible – don’t be surprised if the Democrats’ “wave” turned out to be more akin to a stagnant algae-filled millpond on a windless day.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: When everything’s a political hill to die on, no one reaches the top

Questions on how to conduct effective campaigns or how to confirm the next Supreme Court justice are difficult and opinions diverge widely. The “old” American political system might produce a workable solution, but in today’s environment, everything’s a political hill to die on.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Are normal people now trapped in the Democrats’ uncivil America?

Hillary Clinton’s advocacy for “incivility” in dealing with Trump and Republicans isn’t likely to cause much of a stir on its own. No one listens to the decrepit former presidential candidate, but Clinton’s attitude is all too pervasive in the greater Democrat party. Be afraid…be very afraid.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats about to discover conservatives’ angst that lies beneath

It’s only a matter of time before we find out if there’s another Andrew Breitbart out there or how many Democrats will be defeated in a few weeks due to the party’s outlandish treatment of now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh. What comes around goes around, a principle Democrats have yet to absorb.
