2018 Elections

Outsiders vs. Insiders: In politics is there really such thing as the ‘lesser of two evils?’

Political races should be judged on their own merits. Candidates by and large aren’t sinister and therefore can’t really be deemed “the lesser of two evils.” Roy Moore deserves a fair hearing by Alabama’s voters next week and despite what the media claims it appears as though he’ll get it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Football team analogy explains why D’s & R’s won’t ever get along

It’s nice to see GOP congressional leaders willing to play a little hardball with the budget. No doubt having Trump acting as the “coach” is giving them some additional confidence. No one but the media expects the parties to get along; whoever wins will be the best “team.”

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Despite media claims the voters care about taxes, not Flynn’s FBI problem

The controversy surrounding Michael Flynn will no doubt prove to have little staying power. The GOP’s upcoming battle in conference committee over the tax bill will dominate the headlines. Media “ants” will continue their wayward scurrying but the public knows what really matters.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Media culture that accepts everything honors & appreciates nothing

No one expects much truth-telling from the media anymore but some of these recent stories have really gone over the top. Since they can’t get to Donald Trump they’re now smearing First Lady Melania. It’s all part of the larger cultural war to reclaim what was once a great America.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Lauer is just the latest establishmentarian destroyed by his own libido

Matt Lauer is gone and people will get over it. The real question now is where does all the “inappropriate sexual behavior” end and how do we determine who’s telling the truth? Harvey Weinstein unknowingly opened Pandora’s Box and there’s no way to seal and lock it again.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If GOP tax reform fails, prepare the way for President Bernie in 2020

It’s fair to surmise Bernie Sanders will never be president. With that being said, the GOP still has a long way to go in selling its tax plan and the benefits of the Trump agenda to the public. It could begin with passing a tax cut/reform bill by Christmas. As for the rest, wait and see.

The GOP Establishment Wants To Burn Down The Village To Save It...For Itself

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

All this makes it hard to come to any conclusion but that the GOP establishment thinks that the only way to defeat the virus of conservatism is to set fire to the party and hope that a few elections from now their Boehner-based, crony trough-feeding paradigm will rise again from the ashes like a K Street phoenix. It’s as if they want to get wiped out in 2018, and that’s the one objective they actually seem capable of achieving.

The Dems Are Running in Place

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Deeply invested in over-interpreting Tuesday’s results, the media seeks not to cover a 2018 “wave” but to create one by demoralizing Republicans. While the stupid party is fully capable of falling for this self-fulfilling coverage and cannibalizing its own candidates, that still won’t save the Dems, for whom much of the country remains too deplorable to recapture.

GOP Nice Guys Will Finish Last In 2018

Republicans running in 2018 should expect the same kind of anti-Trump ads and attacks from Democrat-affiliated race-baiters that Ed Gillespie was subjected to, so the time to start thinking about how to get ahead of them is now.

Viguerie says Gillespie win in Va. would derail Dems' anti-Trump campaign

Chad Groening, OneNewsNow.com

"The Democrats are saying that they want the 2018 elections to be an impeachment election,” Richard Viguerie said. “They want Democrats to turn out to undo the 2016 election – people who want to run Donald Trump out of town. They say, ‘We need to win the House and Senate, and then we can start impeaching the president.’” Viguerie continued. “And if Gillespie were to win – which I think he will right now – it will take a lot of wind out of the sails of Democrats."

Kelli Ward Takes Commanding Lead In AZ GOP Primary

Even with Dr. Kelli Ward leading the GOP field and likely Democratic rival Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, the Senate Leadership Fund, which is run by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s allies, has said it will do everything it can to ensure Ward is not the next senator from Arizona.

Poll: Senate Democrats Should Be Very Worried About The 2018 Elections

Henry Rodgers, Daily Caller

Only three of the ten Democratic Senators up for re-election in 2018 are above a 50 percent approval rate in states that favored President Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, according to a new poll released Wednesday. Sens. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, and Jon Tester of Montana are the only three with above a  50 percent approval rating, which is not a good sign for the future of the Democratic party, a Morning Consult poll revealed.

Lessons From My Book TAKEOVER: Be A Third Force, Not A Third Party

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
The policy of acting as a separate force within the Republican Party worked well to nominate Judge Roy Moore – even though it meant defying President Trump’s call to support establishment Senator Strange.

FedUp PAC Poll: Conservatives See 2018 Elections Moving Senate to the Right

Almost 97% of those responding to the poll predict that “Trump supporters will overcome the establishment to win many Senate seats in 2018,” while less than 2% say that McConnell will be able to keep the Senate under his control after the elections.

Congress Suffers From Senility Of Purpose And Principles

The 115th Congress is among the oldest in history; 18 of the 33 Senators running for reelection in 2018 will be 65 or older, but we think Congress is failing not because it suffers ill effects from aging, but because it suffers from senility of purpose and principles.

Conservative Outsider Senate Candidates Breaking Fundraising Records

While fundraising support for the Republican establishment is drying-up due to the failure of Capitol Hill’s Republican leaders to produce on their campaign promises, two of the most promising Republican outsiders, Indiana’s Mike Braun and Wisconsin’s Leah Vukmir, are reporting record-breaking support.

Fed Up Donors Tell GOP Senate Leaders Pass Bills Or Resign

“I think major donors are tired of writing checks to a do-nothing Congress,” Roy Bailey, an influential, Dallas-based GOP donor told POLITICO, and he's not the only one who has closed his wallet to the Republican establishment.

VP Pence’s Chief Of Staff Nick Ayers Is Our New Hero

Vice President Pence's Chief of Staff Nick Ayers told a group of major donors to the RNC they should call members of Congress and tell them if they don't pass Trump's agenda "we’re recruiting opponents, we’re maxing out to their campaigns, and we’re funding super PACs to defeat all of you.”

Aja Smith Takes On Child Predator Loving Democrat Congressman Takano

Sgt. Aja Smith is doing what few other Republican candidates seem willing to do these days -- go after their Democratic opponents on a values issue, and more importantly, to call a pervert a pervert when they see one.
