2018 Elections

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How the left uses social media and racism to assault American culture

The left has weaponized racism to destroy what remains of traditional American culture and institutions such as the church and family. Social media is the liberals’ preferred method for spreading propaganda, a strategy that’s proved very effective for furthering their sinister aims.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Conservatives should retire their fears about new GOP blood in 2018

Retirement is hardly an easy choice. For motivated people who spent years serving and providing it must be difficult to simply walk away. Nevertheless, bringing fresh perspectives to Washington is something the Congress desperately needs. On balance, it’s a very good thing.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: ‘Trump show’ brings policy to the masses with a bit of show biz flair

President Trump’s attempt to bring the immigration debate out into the open can only be a good thing for an American public starved for information as to what’s really going on in government. The entertainment value is high; one can only hope the final result will be just as gratifying.

Republicans will keep control of Congress this year -- Here's why

Guy Short, Fox News

If President Trump provides his backing early to the right candidates and unifies the Republican Party with a winning message of more jobs, stronger borders and an “America First” foreign policy, the November election results will shock the “experts” – just like in 2016. From the increasingly popular tax bill and a roaring stock market to ISIS' decline, pro-Trump Republicans have plenty to run and win on this year.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Only way we get Pres. Oprah is if Donald stops being President Trump

All the tweets in the world won’t pass bills in Congress or improve Trump’s standing with the skeptical part of the public. Trump likely won’t face impeachment and Oprah probably won’t run – but the ultimate success of his administration depends on his ability to control himself.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Will the GOP hold the line on immigration? We’ll soon find out.

History suggests President Trump has a few aces up his sleeve on immigration and in the upcoming GOP primaries. Some may have set aside Trump’s promise to drain the swamp but it’s doubtful he has. Making American Great Again won’t happen without his key agenda items.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Americans would be crazy to believe critics claiming Trump is unstable

The media and Democrats will continue to say Trump is unstable, insane, unbalanced and any other adjective that implies his behavior is a threat to the country. Leftists imagine getting rid of Trump would spell the end of his policy agenda – it’s up to us to prove them wrong.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ obsession with 2018 midterms won’t subside until they lose

The possibility of regaining power and stopping President Trump ensures a steady stream of media reports concerning this year’s midterm elections. Trump’s statements remain the hot topic of discussion but congressional Republicans can better make their case by sticking to his winning agenda.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Ding-dong Orrin Hatch will be gone but Romney could easily be worse

Time will tell how Orrin Hatch’s retirement will play out. Regardless, there will be new blood in the senate after Hatch’s departure – and that can only be a good thing. Mitt Romney would add a new establishment presence to Washington – but would he really just be a thorn in Trump’s side?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: 2018’s political wars could make 2017’s seem like minor skirmishes

The nature of American politics ensures almost constant conflict and 2018 promises to be no different. Republicans should be proud of the progress made in 2017 but by no means is the fight won so everyone can go home satisfied. Simply put, there won’t be any time to rest on our laurels.

Get ready for the great political surprise of 2018

Newt Gingrich, Fox News

If you want a bigger economy, more jobs, more take-home pay, less power with Washington bureaucrats, and lower taxes with more money in your pocket, then vote Republican. If Republicans can learn to tell the truth better than the elite media and Democrats lie, the GOP will win an astonishing victory in 2018.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Trump’s winning formula needs a few tweaks, not a New Year’s overhaul

One can only hope Trump makes a few New Year’s resolutions, most notably a resolve to improve his approval ratings. But some things he’s doing don’t need to be changed; as the first president in decades who seeks to keep his campaign promises, Trump is already ahead of the game.

New Poll: Conservatives Expect Tax Cut to Aid GOP Candidates

More than 93% of those responding to a recent FedUp PAC poll say that the across-the-board tax cut will help Republicans in next year’s elections, while less than 4% disagree. This contrasts strongly with a recent poll from CBS News.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Republicans shouldn’t allow elites to lead them to whitewash in 2018

Republicans should rightfully be buoyed by their successes in the past month. Heading into 2018, however, there remain tremendous challenges to unite conservatives, choose good candidates for the midterm elections and put more “legislative points on the board.” Can they hold it together?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Who better to assess the American mood, Karl Rove or Donald Trump?

Everyone who voted for Trump knew what they were getting and his administration has thus far featured few unpleasant surprises. The White House may lack a true political operation but in many ways that’s a good thing. All signs point to Trump’s momentum being sustained.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: 'Real' President Trump delivers America a very Merry Christmas, indeed

There’s quite a lot to celebrate this Christmas season. Thankfully Trump isn’t just an “animatronic” figure in a Disney program – he’s a real life president with a popular agenda and the brainpower and determination to follow through on his promises to Make America Great Again.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Only Democrats would claim cutting taxes for everyone is a dumb idea

No matter the name, tax cuts are helpful to “real” people out there. Democrats will continue to slam Republicans regardless of what they do; if this tax episode hasn’t taught the GOP they’re engaged in a political fight to the death I’m not sure what it would take to convince them.

Republican tax cuts are hit with fake news attacks

Newt Gingrich, Fox News

In every interview, Republicans must be prepared to correct reporters and anchors when they start using phony examples and false "facts." Republicans should use social media to reach every big winner in the tax cut bill – starting with small business owners. Writing a good bill is only step one. Communicating the bill effectively, despite falsehoods and distortions in fake news, is the vital second step – and it requires serious commitment. If Republicans reach every person who is helped by this bill, they will win decisively in 2018.
