2018 Elections

The Closing Argument

Scott McKay, The American Spectator

Barack Obama is running around the country pathetically claiming he’s the cause of our current prosperity. Which should surprise no one — Obama’s party is animated by the theft of things earned by others. If it is rewarded for its atrocious behavior on Tuesday, America deserves the result which will come. Though this writer is unconvinced the pollsters, pundits, and partisans busily touting the Blue Wave have a finger on America’s pulse, the prospect of Nancy Pelosi returning to power is too distasteful to accept. There must be no Blue Wave. Do not let your vote go uncounted on Tuesday.

Ignore The Never Trump Losers And Vote Republican

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Here’s what I think happens Tuesday, and I could be totally wrong – though being wrong would entitle me to be an honorary Never Trumper. I think we take three or more seats in the Senate and keep the House. I think we keep power in Washington in the hands of the conservative party. And the Never Trump conservatives think this would be a terrible outcome. They are the worst. Shockingly, Never Trumpers are still a thing, at least in DC, New York and the nether regions of the internet, but no one is sure of why. It’s certainly not by popular demand; nobody likes them except weirdos, loser, mutations, and MSNBCNN bookers.

The Democrats Have Not Earned Your Vote

David French, National Review

Democrats demand public hygiene even as they’re responsible for much of our political filth. They decry extremism even as they stampede to the left. And there are voices — even on the right — who would help this deeply flawed party even as it demonstrates its own profound moral bankruptcy. Ignore those voices. Focus on the actual people on your ballot. There is absolutely no reason, including to “send a message,” for any American to vote for a candidate of low character or who does not share his values. Not ever. If you like your Republican, you should keep your Republican. The Democrats have not earned your vote.

A Democratic Congress Could Be a Perfect Foil for Trump

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

A Democratic House will be a natural foil for President Trump, an institution with responsibility but without real power. And should the economy, which has been running splendidly under a Republican Congress and president start to sputter under a divided Congress, there is no doubt that the Democratic House majority, with its anti-capitalist left and socialist ideology, would emerge as the primary suspect. 2019 is thus shaping up to be a year of gridlock on Capitol Hill, with the Senate attempting to expeditiously move through Trump's nominated judges, and a Democratic House potentially hassling the White House and Trump administration with a snowstorm of subpoenas.

Today’s Two Most Important State Races For Conservatives

With the radical progressive Left poised to continue Obama’s program of fundamentally changing America every election for every office on the ballot is important, but Ron DeSantis running for Governor of Florida and Adam Paul Laxalt running for Governor of Nevada stand out as important firebreaks against the advance of socialism.

See The Conservative Election Ads And Videos The Leftist Media Wants To Block

The MRC has documented how the Leftwing media has gone all out this election cycle to block or ban conservative political content. To get around this unseen election interference ConservativeHQ.com has collected some of the best and most hard-hitting videos from conservative organizations, news sources, Republican candidates and internet citizen journalists.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: 2018 elections a wakeup call to the ruling class regardless of outcome

Win or lose, today marks the end of the beginning. The Trump administration’s first two years were a resounding success and the president will sustain the momentum regardless of which party controls the House come January. Voting is a civic duty – never more so than this year.

Yes, Trump is huge factor in midterms. But which Trump?

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Trump is a presence in each Minnesota district and in each campaign — but not necessarily the same Trump. In some races, Trump is the Trump of the daily commotion on cable TV and the Internet — the president who, according to his many detractors, writes outrageous tweets, dog-whistles bigotry, and is increasingly cornered by the Russia investigation. But in other races, there is an entirely different Trump at work. That Trump is the president who is making the economy better by cutting regulations that handicapped local mining, logging, and manufacturing. That Trump is a president protecting not just individual industries and incomes but a way of life.

Closing Argument: Six Key U.S. House Races For Conservatives

If Republicans are to keep the House majority conservatives must show up tomorrow and vote. These six candidates may be the keys to determining the House majority: Rep. Dave Brat – Virginia 7, Rep. Rod Blum – Iowa 1, Ted Budd – North Carolina 13, Scott Perry – Pennsylvania 10, Maria Elvira Salazar – Florida 27, Wendy Rogers – Arizona 1. The alternative to not voting is Speaker Pelosi, the end of the Trump economic miracle and the rest of our conservative successes in Congress.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ closing pitch reads like something out of the kook handbook

Tomorrow’s election is crucial to President Trump’s drive to make America great again. Democrats’ inability to expand their coalition beyond goodie-grabbers and disaffected leftist “resistance” loonies is telling. Americans shouldn’t let them get away with it…vote Republican.

But is it still 'the economy, Stupid'?

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

If Trump had been content to do what previous conservative presidents did, to talk about what a great thing it would be if he could do all these good things and one day he surely would, the Democrats would have been pleased to give him a nice (figurative) pat on the head and everyone could have got on with civility, the rage this year. But he actually set out to do these things, and that’s not the way the Washington game is meant to be played. If the Democrats take the House, we can expect the game to get meaner. Chuck and Nancy and Maxine promise an impeachment party, and it will be an exercise in ultimate futility. But we’ll have fun breaking some furniture.

Democrats Running Because They Hate You

We’ve found a frightening intersection between the astonishing statements by Democratic candidates and campaign operatives revealed in James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas undercover videos and the conclusions of Prof. Angelo Codevilla’s recent essay “Our Revolution’s Logic” that we told you about in our article “Revolutionary Logic.”

Trump: Military Can Use Force At Border

President Donald Trump said yesterday the military will respond with force to anyone in the invading migrant “caravans” who attacks soldiers with rocks or other objects. "They want to throw rocks at our military, our military fights back," Trump said during a White House press conference about immigration.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: In 2018’s rapid dash to the election R’s tout security, D’s pound race

With just days to go until Americans vote in the midterm elections both parties are busy making their closing arguments to voters on the importance of congressional majorities. Republicans make it all about security, Democrats just want to talk healthcare, race and gender.

They Can't Bear the Thought That Trump's Win Was No Anomaly

Roger Kimball, PJ Media

I do not of course know what is going to happen next Tuesday. But if, as seems to me increasingly likely, the Republicans hold the House, the anti-Trump and NeverTrump fraternity will be dealt a cruel blow. Not only will they have lost, not only will their confident predications have been in vain, but their entire sense of the way the world works will have been further undermined. The thing that was impossible, that could not have happened, will have turned out to be not an inexplicable singularity but a corroboration of a new dispensation -- a dispensation, moreover, that has no place for them.

The Democrats' never-ending meltdown

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

When the midterm comes along the Democrats are going to find that we are not ISIS, or Nazis, or racists, or terrorists. We are Americans. We are moms and dads, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters, husbands and wives, and best friends. We are voters and families who look to the future and want it to be the best it can be. Next week, we must trust and urge the American people to not reward those who condemn people for rejecting the status quo, and deciding to stand for freedom, fairness and a renewed American future.

Florida Democrat Andrew Gillum’s Campaign: 'It’s a cracker state.'

Our friend James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas Action has struck again, this time catching the campaign of Andrew Gillum, the Democratic candidate for Governor of Florida trashing the state and white voters: Florida “is a f***ed up ass state" and “It’s a cracker state,” said campaign aide Omar Smith, Gillum's former college roommate.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Life-changing events shine spotlight on 2018’s electoral consequences

In our troubled times life-changing events occur whether we’re ready for them or not. Some respond by purchasing a gun to protect themselves while others continue faulting political leaders for making things worse. Elections do have consequences – let’s hope they’re all good this year.

Why Democrats are staying silent about the migrant caravan

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

While immigration looked like a sure loser for the GOP in June, the sheer size of the caravan, and the violence displayed by some marchers in Guatemala and Mexico, is galvanizing Republican and conservative voters and could tip next week’s midterms. If Democrats support the use of the military or any other Trump measure aimed at blocking entry, they risk turning off the party’s leftist base on the eve of Election Day. On the other hand, if they object too loudly and demand sympathy for thousands of unvetted migrants, Trump will have fresh reason to brand them as favoring open borders and illegal immigrants over law-abiding citizens.

Democratic-Controlled House

Walter E. Williams, CNS News

For those Americans who see majority rule as sacrosanct, ask yourselves how many of your life choices you would like settled by majority rule. Would you want the kind of car you own to be decided through a democratic process? What about decisions as to where you live, what clothes you purchase, what food you eat, what entertainment you enjoy and what wines you drink? I'm sure that if anyone suggested that these decisions should be subject to a democratic process wherein majority rules, we would deem the person tyrannical.
