Outsiders vs. Insiders: Media’s outright lies and distortions cloak true portrait of Trump

President Trump deserves much credit for weathering the media tempest that’s swirling around him at all times. The president generates much of the news himself, of course, but conservatives should admire a politician who so willingly endures the worst to make America great again.

Mueller and the Media Represent the Ancien Régime

David Catron, The American Spectator

Mueller, the Media, and the Democrats are out to get Trump only because they want to crush the populist revolt and restore the Ancien Régime. They have no respect for democracy and even less for the voters. They want to disenfranchise 63 million “deplorable” Trump supporters and go back to business as usual — fundamentally transforming the U.S. into a Venezuela. There’s only one way to stop these creeps from impeaching the President and ruining the country. Every Trump voter who came out in 2016 must to go to the polls on November 6 and drown the Democrats in a red wave.

Despite the disgusting Robert Mueller’s best efforts, Donald Trump remains unscathed

Roger Kimball, The Spectator

There will now be a feeding frenzy of speculation about how, or if, yesterday’s spectacles of prosecutorial power will affect the President. The court of public opinion seems to have turned decisively against Robert Mueller and his legal piranhas. Maybe their full-court press will unseat the President. It is a foregone conclusion, at any rate, that should the Democrats take the House by more than a narrow margin, Donald Trump will be impeached.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If GOPers care about winning in 2018 they’ll play follow the leader

Republicans should take comfort that the fate of their congressional majorities rests in their own hands this year if they’ll only cast off the advice of the “experts” and follow the lead of President Trump. GOP candidates must nationalize the election by hitting hard on the issues people care about most.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Dems dive off socialism deep end; Republicans should pull up the ladder

Liberals argue limited government conservatism doesn’t appeal to a mass audience. It isn’t true, but there’s no doubt socialism turns off huge swaths of Americans. Free people understand you can’t get something for nothing, a truism that’s proving very hard to swallow for Democrats.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: AWOL GOP senators could sink the party’s midterm chances early

Unique outlooks are what each representative and senator is supposed to bring to work in Congress – and can only be accomplished by showing up and fighting for the issues they campaigned on. If Republicans continue to drop the ball through apathy, voters won’t be pleased.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Media exploits ‘Lowlife’ Omarosa to distract from Trumpian MAGA reality

Critics claim the Trump administration plays like a “reality show” when in fact America hasn’t been run this efficiently and effectively in a long time. Trump haters see people like Omarosa and think the White House is in disarray; those who pay attention recognize the real truth.

The Double Standards of Postmodern Justice

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

In these polarized times, Americans are not so much angry that newspapers and magazines fire reporters, or that Robert Mueller indicts those under suspicion. What bothers them is that our guardians of morality do not offer any principles to explain why some people’s lives are harmed or destroyed, and others’ lives are not. When there is no blind code of justice, people suspect that our institutions define wrong behavior and bad words as those in service to the wrong political agenda.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: DC pundits’ prevailing wisdom trumped by voter wrath and rage at elites

Purveyors of the “prevailing wisdom” will never accept that Washington must change and new leaders are desperately needed to foster it. Installing Jim Jordan as Speaker would be a good place to start, but even then the battle over the DC capital’s culture would just be commencing.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Liberals still trying to milk racism out of Charlottesville a year later

The anniversary of last year’s Charlottesville incident came and went, but liberals shouldn’t fret – there’ll be another one next year. Leftists need every possible reminder of their sinister causes they can get – and they’ll use them too. It’s all part of the ongoing battle for control of American culture.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: When did it become okay to dis the culture & traditional America values?

America does look different today and many of us are upset about it. The changes resulted from a devolution of culture where it’s no longer considered mandatory by the elites to express regular reverence for God, tradition and country. If we’re truly better off for it, can someone explain how?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Media mis-information detracts from quality of American public debate

Mark Twain was right – without a competent media you aren’t informed, but if you pay too much attention to the wrong sources, you’re mis-informed. We can’t necessarily control what we read but there is leeway to choose what to believe. Remember this the next time talk turns to politics.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Frantic establishment media spins victory into defeat for the GOP

The media may spin last week’s special elections results as a net-win for Democrats but it’s the Donald Trump-led Republican party that’s sending winners to Congress time after time. The party still has much work to do ahead of November but don’t be fooled – the GOP glass is at least half-full.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Are libertarians wrong to pick a fight with the new Donald Trump GOP?

Debate will continue as to libertarianism’s place within the larger body of conservatism. To remain viable the GOP must appeal to all believers in small or limited government, something Donald Trump needs to understand. Will the GOP congressional leadership go along as well?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Have GOP leaders turned traitor or will they act before it’s too late?

Conservatives deserve better than they’re getting from the GOP congressional leadership, a collection of establishment politicians who always take the easy way out when confronted with a challenge. A change is needed – hopefully it won’t be forced upon us by this year’s elections.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Liberals initiated the culture wars, let them feel the noxious effects

President Trump is entirely correct to take sides in the culture war and if he needs to bring up LeBron James’s name to cause a stir and get people to focus on what’s going on out there, so be it. Democrats are the ones who’ve turned up the rhetorical heat – let them bathe in the burnt-out ashes.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Will the left’s hope for economic malaise be a self-fulfilling prophecy?

Good news is contagious, a lesson the left would do well to learn. Hoping for Trump’s policies to fail isn’t going to win liberals many friends, nor will their increasingly frightening displays of hatred towards the president and his supporters. Conservatives must remain vigilant to endure.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: California burns while the politicians ban straws; who’s truly at fault?

As would be expected California’s fire troubles are inexorably linked to the mindset of its political leadership. Instead of buckling down and addressing the root of problems, Gov. Jerry Brown prefers to blame “climate change.” Remember this the next time you see a house in flames on TV.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If talk is cheap Trump can afford a heap of chatter with foreign leaders

President Trump was correct to talk directly with Kim Jong-un and Vladimir Putin and he wouldn’t be wrong to meet with the Iranians either, as long as he understands what they’re after and what’s at stake. If talk is cheap then listening is even cheaper; a small price to pay for peace.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: GOP rule number one: never take agenda or voting tips from a Democrat

August is typically the time of year when Washington slumbers a bit and voters take a mental break before diving into the contentious fall campaigns. President Trump will keep things interesting, allowing plenty of opportunities for Democrats to shoot themselves in the foot.
