Outsiders vs. Insiders: Yes, liberals, we really DO need a big beautiful border wall with Mexico

Time will reveal how the battle over a border wall ultimately concludes but in the meantime it’s the American public that’s suffering from a lack of urgency from both parties in Washington. A wall simply makes too much sense to abandon – Trump must stick to his guns.

Trump Shoots Down McCain Amnesty Bill

Speaker Ryan’s comments that the House would only take up a bill that President Trump supports puts to rest (at least for the moment) conservative concerns that the open-borders oriented Ryan might try to force through an amnesty bill.  Trump’s rejection of the McCain – Coons amnesty plan puts the pressure back on the Republican Senate to pass a bill that meets the President’s requirements.

Trump Fulfills Campaign Promise On Extreme Vetting Of Aliens

While Congress dithers on legislation crucial to implementing an effective 21st century immigration and border security regimen, yesterday, President Trump signed a National Security Presidential Memorandum to establish a National Vetting Center to help identify individuals who present a threat to our national security if allowed to enter the country.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Choosing civility over principle assures the DC swamp wins every time

More civility in politics would be a good thing but it also has its limitations. If lawmakers care more about being nice to each other than they do about advocating for their constituents the battle is already lost; there would be many chummy politicians in DC but hardly any happy Americans.

#HeadsMustRoll Why There Must Be A Special Counsel To Investigate FISA Abuse

The Steele criminal referral we reported on last week in essence asks the FBI to investigate a source with whom FBI officials collaborated, and whose evidence they used in a fashion that’s under congressional investigation. The referral reveals the deep conflicts of interest of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and others who signed the questionable wiretap applications using the Steele dossier.

Will The Fed Raise Interest Rates Helping Wall Street And Hurting Main Street?

President Trump campaigned on policies that would boot the economy to 4 percent – or greater – growth. Now, just when America’s hard-pressed middle-income families are beginning to see the benefits of Trump’s policies, is not the time for the Fed to cool the economy.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: DC’s Devil’s Advocates bring shame on themselves, not Donald Trump

Sooner or later the “Devil’s advocates” in each party become recognizable for what they are: contrarian voices that people more or less ignore. All the pseudo-Russia scandals in the world won’t make a difference in the long run because one way or another truth always comes to light.

Washington Should Balance Saudi Arabia and Iran

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is promoting economic opportunity and social modernity, while seeking regional military hegemony. During the Cold War Washington’s close embrace of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia made a certain strategic sense. Today, a far more limited, arms-length relationship with what remains an intolerant and repressive power is needed.

Analysis And Links To Shocking House Intel Memos

Americans of every political stripe will find the revelations in the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence memo on the Obama-era abuses of the surveillance powers of the federal government friightening. The memo shows the Obama administration used the phony "dirty dossier" as an excuse to turn loose the government's spy apparatus on its political opponents - and then lied about it.

Rep. Devin Nunes: Twenty-First Century Patriot

There are few patriots in Washington who will stand in the breach and take the pressure, smears and abuse that Devin Nunes has suffered since he resolved to make public the memo about Obama-era FBI and Department of Justice attempts to undermine Donald Trump. All liberty loving Americans of whatever political stripe owe him a debt of gratitude for his patriotism, perseverance and integrity.
