Conservatives Giving Senate GOP One Last Chance On Obamacare Repeal

This is the last chance Capitol Hill’s establishment Republicans have to get right with the GOP’s conservative majority. If this Obamacare repeal bill fails then it will be obvious to all that the only sure path to repeal Obamacare, reform the tax code, rebuild our economy and build the border wall lies through the Republican Primary Elections.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Republicans will ensure future success with a dose of fiscal sanity now

Making hard choices is something even the “deplorables” understand. Family budgets have not increased in years and the hope of something better is what drove tens of millions to vote for Trump. If Republicans are to keep their majorities in the future they need to remember that now.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Unity-challenged GOP has come a long way since last year’s convention

If GOP “moderates” need perspective on the healthcare fight all they need to do is remember back to a year ago today when the party was fractured and there was little hope for unity. Then Republicans gathered in Cleveland to nominate Donald John Trump for president.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ insane Russia boomerang will return to squelch them

The Democrats are only interested in tripping up and delegitimizing Trump and talking about impeachment and Russia. It’s a tactic that is almost certain to come back to haunt them in the future. When it happens some might think it tragic; but it will still be fun to watch.

Cruz Endorses Latest Senate Obamacare Repeal, So Do We

The latest Senate Obamacare repeal bill is, given the weak-kneed GOP leadership, as close to repeal as we're going to get. Ultimately, the final answer to repealing Obamacare and restoring a free market in health insurance is to be found in only one place: The Republican primary elections.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ rage over phony Donald Trump Jr. email scam is pathetic

The hubbub over Donald Trump Jr. is the Washington establishment’s latest desperate ploy to delegitimize the Trump presidency. But if the ruling class is to make it work they’ll need something more substantial than junk emails and a kook like Natalia Veselnitskaya.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Liberals rescue trapped whales so why won’t they help Charlie Gard?

Americans should not forget the lessons learned from the Charlie Gard case or else all of us might someday end up just as a name on a clipboard somewhere in a cluttered government conference room with our life – or death – arbitrarily in a bureaucrat’s hands.

Conservatives Got Aggressive And McConnell Blinked

The problem in the Senate Republican Conference is Mitch McConnell’s unwillingness to actually pursue conservative alternatives to Obamacare. We've won one round, now it's time for conservatives to hang tough and force McConnell to move the Consumer Freedom Option.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How Disneyland showed Hillary and the Dems just don’t get gender

Hillary can try to make a political comeback but unless she and the Democrats ditch their failing message and insistence on dividing everyone into us-versus-them subgroups by race and gender then they won’t be any more successful than the last time in convincing people to choose them.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Is Trump's presidential legacy being driven by foreign policy?

President Trump’s vision has been a smashing success thus far and will likely continue as the world wakes up to the notion there’s a different philosophy governing America today. It may be the ultimate irony but Donald Trump is building his presidential legacy on foreign policy.

McConnell Refuses To Work With Conservatives On Obamacare Replacement

We urge CHQ readers to call Senator McConnell’s office (the Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to tell him you want a vote on the Consumer Freedom Option. Tell him it’s time for Senate Republicans to let the American people know whether they stand with consumers who want choice and freedom or with the Democrats and their abusive and intrusive Obamcare healthcare mandates.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Establishment pans Trump’s notion of what ‘presidential’ means

Trump doesn’t care about being “presidential” because by the establishment’s definition it would mean he’d have to stop being himself and start accepting what’s failed in America. If that’s the case I’m betting most Americans would prefer someone who isn’t “presidential” at all.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Was choosing Gorsuch Trump’s greatest accomplishment to date?

Having reasonable public servants like Neil Gorsuch deciding cases at the highest level is a win-win for conservatives and America. And it’s just one of the reasons why Trump’s move to nominate Gorsuch for the Supreme Court continues to be a popular one with the voters.

Here’s How Anti-Conservative Academic Discrimination Works

David French, National Review

Academics have redefined and refocused disciplines to such an extent that they essentially exclude conservative inquiry. Thus, they can honestly say they’ve never discussed politics in hiring decisions because the discipline itself has narrowed so much that it closes itself to conservatives.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Elites use Trump’s tweets to distract from their fecklessness

Whether Trump’s tweets are a distraction – or just a diversion – will be debated for a long time, no doubt. In the meantime the calendar will turn, the debt will mount and people will live their lives regardless of what the chattering class thinks about the president’s mass musings.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How Donald Trump made Independence Day feel great again

The Oval Office is now occupied by a man who loves America and its people, military, traditions, laws, institutions and yes, the flag. This alone is enough to give the United States a new atmosphere, something you could sense as the fireworks exploded overhead on the Fourth of July.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Cruz foresaw Obamacare mess four years ago; was he a soothsayer?

Republicans can hold onto their base and perhaps foster inroads among other constituencies by pursuing policies that make a difference in people’s lives. For this it doesn’t require a soothsayer to foresee – it just takes political resolve and leadership to accomplish.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats leap headfirst out of bounds with ‘death party’ rhetoric

It may not be the ideal situation to move legislation without input from the other side but Democrats and their “death party” rhetoric makes it necessary. When the simple matter of trying to forge new laws is demonized to such a degree by the opposition it leaves very little choice.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Agenda-less Democrats’ Russia train heads hopelessly for derailment

It’s only been a little over five months since Donald Trump took office, but thus far he is the one being vindicated by the truth. The Democrats’ Russia train is rolling downhill fast; the brakes are shot and there aren’t any barriers preventing them from hurtling off the tracks.
