2018 Elections

At last, Democrats will have a chance to make those tax cuts permanent

Editors, Washington Examiner

If Democrats are truly and sincerely concerned about the temporary nature of these tax provisions, they will have a chance to fix the problem. If they do vote for it, they might have to admit that most of their propaganda from last December about what they incessantly called (and still call) the “Republican tax scam” was just so much ridiculous prattling. But if they vote against it, then they will have at least come clean for the record that they want you all to pay higher taxes, and that's all.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Establishment media is ringmaster to the American political ‘circus’

The “circus” atmosphere engulfing American politics is the result of a political establishment desperate to resist all forms of change and the man who’s altering the rules in Washington. To the elites, losing power means surrendering their livelihoods – they won’t go down without a fight.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: 9/11 cost us more than buildings and lives – it stole our national soul

Much has changed since 9/11/01, not the least of which is a loss of patriotism and devotion to the founding principles of the United States. Much of the deterioration is due to political correctness and our elected leaders’ lack of willingness to fight diligently for truth. Will we ever get it back?

Leftist Christians Target Florida Governor’s Race

Democrats Gillum and King will cloak their campaign in the mantle of churches across Florida but make no mistake about their ideology – it is the same Far Left ideology of open borders, sanctuary cities, big government, socialism and abortion on demand that their backers billionaires George Soros, Tom Steyer and other “progressive” Democrats stand for.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Will the sad shaming of Kavanaugh ignite fury in the GOP grassroots?

Americans aren’t stupid. Good people recognize what’s going on in Washington and the states – a coordinated effort to thwart President Trump, Brett Kavanaugh and those who would Make America Great Again. Now is the time for the conservative grassroots to let itself be heard.

GOP have only themselves, not Trump, to blame in 2018

Ken Cuccinelli, Washington Examiner

Washington needs leaders who honor their oath to support and defend the Constitution and who will not hand our country over to the liberals who will immediately enact terrible policies and destroy our freedoms. It’s time for leaders in Washington to keep their promises and fulfill their commitments to taxpayers. It’s time for Congress to do what they said they would do and lead the way to smaller government and more freedom.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Who’s more ‘careless with the truth,’ Donald Trump or his enemies?

In today’s political environment people see the concept of “honesty” differently. One side sees the other as “careless with the truth” while themselves pursuing an investigation into a matter that was fabricated from the outset. Honestly speaking, things will never change in the swamp.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: No way Democrats deny Kavanaugh his rightful seat on the high Court

Brett Kavanaugh will uphold the Constitution. Just a few months ahead of what will evolve into the 2020 presidential race we shouldn’t expect Democrats to behave themselves. They’re going all out to depict Kavanaugh as a hater – and they’re looking awful stupid in the process.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Frustrated American pols fruitlessly seek help for Trump obsession

President Trump occupies the minds of both Democrats and Republicans these days. With two months to go until the midterm elections – and the 2020 presidential campaign starting just after – Trump shows no signs of relinquishing his position as leader of the American political scene.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Asinine flag protests & boycotts translate to GOP wins on Election Day

As we head into the post-Labor Day campaign season it’s clear the left is not offering a ceasefire in the culture war to further the prospects of Democrat candidates. Conservatives must see the ongoing NFL flag protests and In-n-Out burger boycott as an invitation to beat them in two months.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Trump’s pro-American worker push makes Labor Day a time to celebrate

Labor Day is a time to step back and celebrate work and enjoy the fruits of our exertions. Americans are fortunate to have a leader like President Trump who isn’t afraid to do what it takes to give us more of a good thing – jobs and paychecks. There’s plenty of political strife to come.

It Isn’t Just Trump vs. Bernie In Florida Governor’s Race

The aim of billionaires Tom Steyer, George Soros and their network of Far-Left megadonors isn’t just electing another progressive governor in Florida, it is putting Florida out of reach for Republican presidential candidates forever. We’ve already made our contribution to Ron DeSantis and we urge all CHQ readers and friends to do the same through this link.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Who do you trust more on government, Reagan or 'Pocahontas' Warren?

Ronald Reagan was right – if you’ve got a government agent at your door promising help it’s more likely a dilemma than a beneficial thing. People like Sen. Elizabeth Warren may disagree but Americans know better – the farther government stays away from your personal business, the better.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Even in death it’s hard to grapple with the legacy of ‘maverick’ McCain

John McCain is gone. With him went one of American politics’ most unique and controversial political figures. If it was McCain’s goal to have historians poring over his life for decades to come, he’ll certainly get his way. As for conservatives, we hope he’s the last of his kind.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Mollie Tibbetts’ murder trumps Mueller scapegoats in leadup to midterms

No matter how hard they may try, Donald Trump’s opponents can’t distract from the issues Americans care most about. Democrats and the media obsess about the latest happenings in the Robert Mueller investigation but voters are much more likely to remember Mollie Tibbetts.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats may bluster but they won't impeach Trump next year

Democrats hate all Republican presidents, period. Donald Trump just happens to be one with a Democrat-like personal history so they despise him especially. To Democrats, Trump is akin to a traitor; they desperately want to hang him but can’t spare the impeachment noose.

Do Politics Matter?

Ben Shapiro, CNS News

If President Trump truly cares about retaining Congress, he has to stop thinking about his base and start thinking about those in the competitive districts. How can he make their lives easier? That's not about policy. At the very least, it's about generating fewer headlines. Trump's base is rock-solid, and it's not going anywhere. But he needs more than his base to win in 2018 and 2020. And barring a personality change, that means minimizing the transaction costs of defending him for those who must show up to the polls.

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.

Kneeling NFL players will help Republicans in November

Ed Rogers, Washington Post

The Democrats’ hopes for a “blue wave” this November might rest on how they maneuver through social issues that divide the parties. This issue is beyond the control of Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats who want to keep the elections focused elsewhere. When asked specifically about the NFL’s new anthem policy, Pelosi punted as she responded: “I love the national anthem. I love the flag. And I love the First Amendment, and I’ll just leave it at that.” In the coming weeks, Republicans will hold the Democrats’ feet to the fire.

Federal Reserve Steps On Trump Economic Boom… Again

President Trump campaigned on policies that would boost 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.
