Outsiders vs. Insiders: At long last Trump budget puts American taxpayers above tax takers

The left and the establishment want to be rid of Trump because he represents a true departure from the status quo in Washington. Trump’s budget is proof positive there’s a new game in town. Would Jeb Bush have proposed to drastically reduce social spending?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Why chasing ghosts in the Trump/Russia affair will cost Dems dearly

Democrats and the media are hanging all their hopes on the unlikely prospect that some damaging evidence will turn up linking Trump to Russia. When it doesn’t happen – and they have to return to talking about the issues – they’ll face an angry public just itching to make them pay.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Media will bash Trump mercilessly until Americans decide it's too much

The country won’t improve until Americans call out the media in large enough numbers to not only affect the bottom-line, but also pull the plug on the false assumptions underlying the liberal agenda. Only then will we realize how much is too much.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Irascible impeachment talk is Democrats’ most asinine rant to date

In the end Donald Trump’s presidency will likely rise or fall with the conclusions of the special counsel on the Russian-meddling investigation. If the case against him is truly as flimsy as it appears on the surface, Democrats are the ones who will suffer the most from pursuing it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Distracted conservatives equate to disastrous Democrat gains in 2018

More than anything conservatives need to take a step back from all of this fury, breathe into a paper bag if necessary and try to remember, as the Bible teaches, “This too shall pass.” President Trump will regularly stir up the liberal hornets’ nest, but the people aren’t fooled.

The appointment of a special counsel comes with big risks for Trump and takes the investigation out of his chain of command. But it also benefits the president by undermining calls for impeachment or an independent congressional committee while allowing the White House to defer all future Russia questions to Mueller's office — if Trump can maintain that level of message discipline.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Fraud-free elections are a figment of liberal hallucinogenic imaginations

What “evidence” do liberals possess showing that anyone was actually prevented from voting simply by having to produce a valid ID? Where is the “evidence” of collusion to suppress minority turnout? Where is the “evidence” demonstrating that such a plot exists?

Robert Mueller: A Solid Choice for Trump-Russia Investigation ‘Special Counsel’

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

Formal independence is less important than the perception of integrity (flowing from the reality of integrity). Bob Mueller has that. I remain a skeptic of special prosecutors or special counsels. Democrats are so Trump-deranged that I suspect, despite Mueller’s solid reputation, they will claim the fix is in if impeachment does not appear to be on the horizon in short order. But most people will give Mueller a chance. And he deserves that.
