2018 Elections

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If wishes were fishes Democrats would have everyone eating sushi

Democrats wish for a lot of things, but their cure for the issue “ailments” would end up worse for America than the “disease.” Voters have a chance to stave off endless stupid investigations and Democrat chicanery by voting Republican on November 6. Will conservatives step up?

Save the Democrats: Crush Them at the Polls

Deroy Murdock, National Review

Atop Trump’s 2016 defeat of Hillary, a second, even harsher drubbing in 2018, might be the knockout blow that makes Democrats reverse their unicorn ride into hell and, instead, reinspire America with a program for growth and prosperity. Only then might Democrats stop their madness. It now is the solemn duty of every voter, volunteer, activist, advocate, donor, operative, and candidate on the center-right to assure that the Democrats experience this desperately needed, self-cleansing, paradigm-shifting wipeout.

Why There Are No 'Conservative' Democrats

West Virginia’s Democratic Senator Joe Manchin tries to look conservative but when push comes to shove rather than risk being marginalized he sides with the Party's Far-Left liberal leaders. The same dynamic is now at work further and further down the Democratic Party’s food chain, as a recent report from Pennsylvania demonstrates.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Dems’ beautiful blue wave more like stagnant algae-filled millpond

Democrats seriously blundered by forecasting an ominous “blue wave” would clean Republicans out of Congress simply because of Donald Trump’s personality. Americans aren’t gullible – don’t be surprised if the Democrats’ “wave” turned out to be more akin to a stagnant algae-filled millpond on a windless day.

My Latest Memo On The 2018 Election

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Democrats, including many of the Party’s national leaders, have now handed the GOP the opportunity to nationalize the election on the mob violence, incivility, radical Leftism and downright craziness that was on national TV during and after the Kavanaugh confirmation.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: When everything’s a political hill to die on, no one reaches the top

Questions on how to conduct effective campaigns or how to confirm the next Supreme Court justice are difficult and opinions diverge widely. The “old” American political system might produce a workable solution, but in today’s environment, everything’s a political hill to die on.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Are normal people now trapped in the Democrats’ uncivil America?

Hillary Clinton’s advocacy for “incivility” in dealing with Trump and Republicans isn’t likely to cause much of a stir on its own. No one listens to the decrepit former presidential candidate, but Clinton’s attitude is all too pervasive in the greater Democrat party. Be afraid…be very afraid.

After good week, GOP House campaigners aren't yet optimistic. But they are less pessimistic

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Everyone knows the campaign has been an up-and-down affair for GOP strategists, and that the middle of the summer, after the Trump-Putin summit in Helsinki and the uproar over separation of illegal immigrant families, was a very down time. Republican strategists who a few months earlier felt confident about keeping the House turned toward pessimism. Their big hope was that something would happen to make things better. Now, perhaps it has. Enter the Kavanaugh effect.

Is The Fed Trying To Tank The Trump Economy Before The Midterms?

The Federal Reserve has raised rates recently and expects to do so again soon. Translation for those not aligned with the Wall Street – Washington – Silicon Valley Axis: The Fed wants to stifle your wage growth and job mobility by establishing a so-called neutral level that neither spurs nor slows economic growth.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats about to discover conservatives’ angst that lies beneath

It’s only a matter of time before we find out if there’s another Andrew Breitbart out there or how many Democrats will be defeated in a few weeks due to the party’s outlandish treatment of now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh. What comes around goes around, a principle Democrats have yet to absorb.

Singing only sad songs is no fun

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Democrats and the liberals were winning for so long that it never occurred to any of them that the good old days wouldn’t last forever. But the good old days didn’t, and now they’re as ill-tempered as the alligator the day the creek went dry. Democrats have won many elections under the rules obtaining, and they will one day elect presidents again who nominate men and women to the Supreme Court. The fault, the Bard said, is not in the stars, but in ourselves. That can be a painful lesson, but not learning it will be most painful of all.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: 50 out of 51 GOPers did right on Kavanaugh, isn’t it time to celebrate?

The left’s intimidation tactics didn’t work on Senators Collins, Graham and even Jeff Flake -- and they shouldn’t have. If America’s political system is ever to get back on track Republicans need to stick together to honor this “new” unity. Otherwise, things could get ugly really fast.

We'll Remember In November: This Kavanaugh Witch Hunt Is Radicalizing Us Normals

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

We are not going to forget what happened here. And this is going to have a lasting impact, but not one the Democrats are going to like. As my friend, the fabulous Larry O'Connor, observes, Andrew Brietbart was radicalized by the Clarence Thomas hearings and the manifest injustice that this brave man endured at the hands of lying, hypocritical Democrats like noted aquatic Oldsmobile operator Ted Glug Glug Vroom Vroom Kennedy. Hey Dems, we’re woke, and your go-to tactic of destroying our people? Broke. See ya next month.

A savage, frothing Left has united Republicans around Trump

Noemie Emery, Washington Examiner

Democrats en masse turned their backs on the presumption of innocence, willing to wreck one man’s life over one allegation that never seemed grounded in fact. Everything the Never Trumpers had feared was about to take place was indeed coming at them, but not from Trump. It was coming from the people who claimed that they were his opponents. This has changed the Never Trumpers’ ideas about who was their enemy. How long they can hold to this formulation depends on the Left, and on him.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Bumbling senate Dems provide ample kindling for GOP grassroots fire

In the aftermath of the confirmation war over Brett Kavanaugh there’s a tangible feeling America has changed – and the Republican Party along with it. There’s nothing quite like watching a good man being irrationally attacked to bring out the beast in righteous people. Democrats are yet to feel the sting.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Donald Trump’s ‘doctrine of patriotism’ sets standard for world peace

Trump’s “doctrine of patriotism” will accomplish its goal of fostering world peace and prosperity among sovereign nations. Leftists and some conservative dreamers believe all the world’s peoples can be stuffed in one little box and emerge in harmony; reality says it ain’t so.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats must pay for treating Americans like addlebrained idiots

Democrats really do think we’re that dumb. They’ve turned the “advice and consent” process into a political sideshow that’s got men everywhere terrified of juvenile sins that might crop up now. We shouldn’t ever have to worry about what’s in a high school yearbook, should we? For this, Democrats must be made to pay at the ballot box.

Kavanaugh fight boosts Republicans in red states

W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

Before Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee, it looked like a lose-lose situation for Republicans: Abandon Kavanaugh and depress the base ahead of the midterm elections; attack Ford and reap the whirlwind with women come November. Now it is possible the battle over Kavanaugh could rally apathetic Republican voters, especially in the red states that will decide which party controls the Senate. It has reminded conservatives that whatever their views of President Trump, they are unlikely to be treated fairly by Democrats or a hostile media.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Treachery on Kavanaugh would trigger a massive justified RINO hunt

As Lindsey Graham articulated so eloquently last Thursday, the Kavanaugh nomination is about confirming a good man to the Supreme Court, not opening the door to fantastic character assassination by self-serving politicians. Any Republican who votes no isn’t a hero – they’re a RINO goat.

GOP Must Nationalize The Election On Kavanaugh Confirmation

The Kavanaugh confirmation battle is motivating conservative voters in North Dakota, West Virginia, Missouri and other states. Republican candidates who play small ball – campaigning on local issues – are likely to lose this November, because the Kavanaugh confirmation is the one big issue that seems to be moving voters right now.
