Outsiders vs. Insiders: Can conservatives sustain the urgent fight against the ruling class?

On the one-year anniversary of Hillary’s Clinton’s acceptance speech at the Democrat Convention in Philadelphia it’s clear the Washington establishment is still very much alive and unvanquished. Conservatives can either stand up and continue the fight or wave a white flag and surrender.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: The establishment’s sad Obamacare failure will end in primary reckoning

People won’t have to search very hard to discover the real culprits in the Obamacare repeal debacle. In Hamlet, Shakespeare wrote, “Frailty, thy name is woman.” In 2017, it’s more like “Failure, incompetence, corruption and fecklessness, thy name is establishment.”

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ ‘Better Deal’ is socialism repackaged in naked populist form

Chuck Schumer’s right: American capitalism does need a reexamination. But the Democrats shouldn’t be surprised when the people demand more of it, not the warmed-over rebranded “Better Deal” they’re offering to move attention away from their latest ploy to foster socialism.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: GOP holdouts should join Obamacare repeal play or be cut from the team

The Washington establishment is clearly on life support. One can only speculate the GOP “moderates” will soon understand that their best – and only – option is to play a little team sports, go along with the play that’s called and hope everyone does their job in the execution.

Trump Needs To Be Smart About How He Fires Mueller

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

When Mueller refuses to follow the reasonable order of his elected superior to explain his outrageous conflicts of interest, Trump will be able to toss him and his band of hacks into the Schumer can. Yeah, the media will melt down, but normal Americans will shrug, and Trump will continue doing the job we elected him to do.

Sessions’ Asset Forfeiture Support Wrong, Hurts Police

Asset forfeiture without conviction has been described by conservative constitutionalist giant Justice Clarence Thomas as “policing for profit" while calling into question its constitutionality.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Relentless media war on Trump has failed miserably to dent his resolve

Trump tells it like it is. The media may not see it that way, but with the outsider president, what you see is what you get. The rest is conjecture and innuendo. Trump spoke truth to power in Cleveland one year ago last Friday – and there’s no sign he intends to let up now.

Mueller and Trump Prepare for War with America the Loser

If Trump and his family are singled out for this when the Democrats have skated, this will be regarded by a vast proportion of the public as selective prosecution further exacerbating the situation. To take any of this seriously as a search for truth is absurd. It's more like a blood sport, the modern equivalent of  gladiatorial combat. Trump baiting. And Trump, as the bear, lashes out.

Trump Has Himself, Not Sessions, to Blame for the Limitless Mueller Investigation

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

President Donald Trump’s rant against Attorney General Jeff Sessions, in an interview with the New York Times, is a foolish bit of revisionist history. Sessions erred in the rashness and overbreadth of his recusal from the Russia investigation, but the president has himself to blame for the appointment of a special counsel.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Obamacare repeal is ‘Shawshank Redemption’ moment for GOP

Trump has done well in fulfilling the spirit of his candidacy and his supporters rest easy knowing he'll work tirelessly to Make America Great Again. Whether Congress allows him to get far in that quest is another matter. It’s now up to Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell.

Mueller investigation expands to include Trump business dealings

Melissa Quinn, Washington Examiner

Investigators with the FBI as well as others part of special counsel Robert Mueller's probe are examining apartment purchases from Russians in Trump-owned buildings. They're also looking into the president's previous involvement in a SoHo hotel condominium development with Russian associates, the Miss Universe pageant, which took place in Moscow in 2013, and Trump's decision to sell a Florida mansion to a Russian oligarch in 2008, according to Bloomberg.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Trump’s GOP critics are only sabotaging their own chances for success

Republicans gain little or nothing by bailing on Trump. It didn’t work for Ted Cruz at the Cleveland convention last year and won’t have any better results today either. Conservatives are onboard with Trump’s agenda and it’s time everyone started pulling for the right side.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Republicans will ensure future success with a dose of fiscal sanity now

Making hard choices is something even the “deplorables” understand. Family budgets have not increased in years and the hope of something better is what drove tens of millions to vote for Trump. If Republicans are to keep their majorities in the future they need to remember that now.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Unity-challenged GOP has come a long way since last year’s convention

If GOP “moderates” need perspective on the healthcare fight all they need to do is remember back to a year ago today when the party was fractured and there was little hope for unity. Then Republicans gathered in Cleveland to nominate Donald John Trump for president.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ insane Russia boomerang will return to squelch them

The Democrats are only interested in tripping up and delegitimizing Trump and talking about impeachment and Russia. It’s a tactic that is almost certain to come back to haunt them in the future. When it happens some might think it tragic; but it will still be fun to watch.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ rage over phony Donald Trump Jr. email scam is pathetic

The hubbub over Donald Trump Jr. is the Washington establishment’s latest desperate ploy to delegitimize the Trump presidency. But if the ruling class is to make it work they’ll need something more substantial than junk emails and a kook like Natalia Veselnitskaya.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Liberals rescue trapped whales so why won’t they help Charlie Gard?

Americans should not forget the lessons learned from the Charlie Gard case or else all of us might someday end up just as a name on a clipboard somewhere in a cluttered government conference room with our life – or death – arbitrarily in a bureaucrat’s hands.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How Disneyland showed Hillary and the Dems just don’t get gender

Hillary can try to make a political comeback but unless she and the Democrats ditch their failing message and insistence on dividing everyone into us-versus-them subgroups by race and gender then they won’t be any more successful than the last time in convincing people to choose them.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Is Trump's presidential legacy being driven by foreign policy?

President Trump’s vision has been a smashing success thus far and will likely continue as the world wakes up to the notion there’s a different philosophy governing America today. It may be the ultimate irony but Donald Trump is building his presidential legacy on foreign policy.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Establishment pans Trump’s notion of what ‘presidential’ means

Trump doesn’t care about being “presidential” because by the establishment’s definition it would mean he’d have to stop being himself and start accepting what’s failed in America. If that’s the case I’m betting most Americans would prefer someone who isn’t “presidential” at all.
