Outsiders vs. Insiders: 2018’s political wars could make 2017’s seem like minor skirmishes

The nature of American politics ensures almost constant conflict and 2018 promises to be no different. Republicans should be proud of the progress made in 2017 but by no means is the fight won so everyone can go home satisfied. Simply put, there won’t be any time to rest on our laurels.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Trump’s winning formula needs a few tweaks, not a New Year’s overhaul

One can only hope Trump makes a few New Year’s resolutions, most notably a resolve to improve his approval ratings. But some things he’s doing don’t need to be changed; as the first president in decades who seeks to keep his campaign promises, Trump is already ahead of the game.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Republicans shouldn’t allow elites to lead them to whitewash in 2018

Republicans should rightfully be buoyed by their successes in the past month. Heading into 2018, however, there remain tremendous challenges to unite conservatives, choose good candidates for the midterm elections and put more “legislative points on the board.” Can they hold it together?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Who better to assess the American mood, Karl Rove or Donald Trump?

Everyone who voted for Trump knew what they were getting and his administration has thus far featured few unpleasant surprises. The White House may lack a true political operation but in many ways that’s a good thing. All signs point to Trump’s momentum being sustained.

Drawing a Line on Sexual Harassment

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Most cases aren't as clear-cut as an Al Franken prank photo. Evidence of harassment is often hard to produce, especially years or decades later. That's why cautious investigations and fine distinctions should be made before reputations and careers vanish within a news cycle.

Irrational Obama-Era Labor Regulations Overturned

Irrational decisions by Obama's National Labor Relations Board, such as striking down a Hooters franchise policy requiring employees to be polite to co-workers and guests, have been overturned by the Trump board.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: 'Real' President Trump delivers America a very Merry Christmas, indeed

There’s quite a lot to celebrate this Christmas season. Thankfully Trump isn’t just an “animatronic” figure in a Disney program – he’s a real life president with a popular agenda and the brainpower and determination to follow through on his promises to Make America Great Again.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Only Democrats would claim cutting taxes for everyone is a dumb idea

No matter the name, tax cuts are helpful to “real” people out there. Democrats will continue to slam Republicans regardless of what they do; if this tax episode hasn’t taught the GOP they’re engaged in a political fight to the death I’m not sure what it would take to convince them.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ impeachment drumbeat will come back to bite them

It seems clear the more Democrats talk about “me too” and impeachment of Donald Trump the more they’re boxing themselves into a corner that will be difficult to emerge from. American voters are sick to death of partisan games – isn’t it about time we started talking about policy again?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How Mitch McConnell will expose the best candidate in every primary

Conservatives cannot let Tuesday night’s defeat in Alabama deter them from identifying and supporting the best candidates in every GOP primary race. Ironically, Mitch McConnell will help in this endeavor – find out who he backs and think strongly about choosing one of his or her opponents.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Will landing men on the moon help Make America Great Again?

Thinking big used to be a universal requirement from leaders of government, something we’ve steadily gotten away from in recent times. President Trump believes we can regain the same spirit that drove Americans to land men on the moon in the 60’s – here’s speculating he’s right again.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Doug Jones is now a Senator and Democrats STILL have no agenda

Roy Moore’s loss in Alabama is just the beginning of something, be it a complete reevaluation of the political situation in Washington or perhaps even a purge of the ruling class. One thing is for sure, however – the establishment is squarely to blame for Republicans losing a senate seat.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Alabama race unleashes swamp creatures’ insane fury against Roy Moore

The GOP establishment has been backed into a corner in Alabama, just as they were nationwide with Trump’s campaign last year. The American people no longer take the ruling class’s word at face value and they’ll likely be sending another message to the swamp today by electing Roy Moore.

Sex and the Single Goal

David Catron, The American Spectator

Will accusing dead men of sexual harassment help the Democrats obscure the reality that they have nothing to offer other than obstruction, programs that don’t work, and implausible conspiracy theories? At least one Democratic strategist, told the Hill that she doubts it: “There’s no good way to message ‘Our side’s sexual harassment isn’t as bad as your side’s.’” But what else have they got? For all the GOP’s faults, it at least has a few ideas about what’s good and bad for the country. The Democrats have sex and the single goal — survival.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Spare the sex lectures, bring back the Founders’ morality and religion

John Adams was right – the Constitution can only thrive among a moralistic and religious people. If America is to be brought down it will occur from the inside-out. Our political leaders would do well to take Adams’ words to heart and act accordingly before it’s too late.

Franken's Phony Finale

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Franken didn’t so much confess to wrongdoing as naïveté at the fury of this purge. His attempts to honor the “conversation,” he wimpered, had given the “impression” of guilt. Finally understanding that he couldn’t stop his expulsion, he took refuge in the last act of a male feminist pig — adopting the airs of a victim while pulling out his chair for a female successor.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Roy Moore’s holier-than- thou critics prove elections have consequences

Regardless of one’s personal opinions on candidates, elections do have consequences – President Donald Trump is an excellent example. Good policy follows from sound votes – don’t let the integrity-less naysayers like Jeff Flake convince you otherwise. Vote for Roy Moore on Tuesday.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Could today’s media report on what really happened at Pearl Harbor?

Pearl Harbor Day deserves its remembrances as a tragic event that eventually brought a nation together. Back then Americans recognized a common enemy and got to work destroying it. Journalists helped in the endeavor – they were a long way from today’s jaundiced news reporters.
