2018 Elections

Trump To Issue Orders To Stop Phony Asylum Claims

We have word from the White House that, perhaps as early as today, President Trump will take action to ensure asylum is not a free pass to cross our borders illegally. We applaud President Trump’s decision to use the authorities granted to him by the Immigration and Nationality Act to end the gaming of our dysfunctional immigration system.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: What separates CNN’s Jim Acosta, Nancy Pelosi or any Democrat?

As demonstrated by the events of this week Democrats and their media allies can’t help but whip up turmoil and foster division wherever they venture. Conservatives and Republicans must do more than look on in amazement – it’s time to get to work to ensure 2020 restores some sanity.

Conservative Issues Nationalized the Election

Yesterday, ConservativeHQ.com Chairman Richard A. Viguerie hosted a news conference with conservative leaders to analyze the results of the 2018 midterms and to offer a roadmap for Republicans to return to the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.

2018 House Election Results: Clearing Out The Dead Wood

As CHQ Chairman Richard A. Viguerie observed in his book TAKEOVER, those of us who have been around the conservative movement for many years don’t root for Republicans to lose, but we understand history well enough not to fear defeat because when the Republican establishment fails, conservatism advances.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If history is a guide Dems’ wimpy ‘civility’ will last about a week

Time will tell whether “civility” returned to American politics with the results of this year’s elections. Democrats have never shown much interest in playing nice, least of all when they’re in the majority and calling the shots. Will calmer heads prevail now? Don’t bet the farm on it.

GOP Knocks Off Four Senate Democrats

David Catron, The American Spectator

Yesterday was a good day for the “world’s greatest deliberative body.” The voters banished four Democratic Senators to outer darkness. One of the most important GOP pickups in the Senate was the Florida seat Bill Nelson has occupied for 18 years. Former Florida governor Rick Scott won that race by a 1 percent margin after a race characterized by Nelson’s lethargic campaign, false tweets and his vote against Kavanaugh. There are still races around the country that have yet to be called as this is being written, but regardless of the grandiose claims that will inevitably be made by the Democrats and the media pursuant to their recovery of the House majority, the fabled blue wave failed to materialize yesterday.

Divisive Dems may be own undoing with kinder, gentler Trump

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Democrats' tendency to overplay their hand in their fits of rage could undo them again. If they investigate at the expense of legislating and refuse to bargain in good faith over such issues as immigration and infrastructure, they will offer voters a stark contrast for 2020. Which is why a cooler Trump could be just the ticket to lower the too-hot political temperature. Trump 2.0 can make deals with the Dems, if they are inclined, or he can let them make fools of themselves. Either way, he will be the grown-up in the room.

Voters Reject Paul Ryan’s Failed House Leadership

The lesson of the 2018 midterm election for House Republicans should be clear – seat-by-seat you can look at yesterday's results and see how leadership failures cost Republican seats in the House. It is time for new conservative leadership in the House, especially now that the Party is in the minority.

Results For Our Six Bellweather House Races

In four of our six bellweather races the Republican lost. Every Republican, even the two incumbents who won, was outspent, some by more than 2 to 1. However, none of the Democrat wins were landslides indicative of a “Blue Wave" against President Trump, rather they showed a complete failure of leadership on the part of House Republicans.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: 2018’s split decision goes to Donald Trump and his Senate Republicans

Donald Trump will act like nothing’s different after all of this… but will everyone else? American politics is at best an unpredictable exercise. 2018 proved to be about what most people thought – lots of surprises and upsets… and pollsters who’re eating crow today. The next two years will be fascinating to watch.

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.
