Conservatives

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.

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.

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.

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.

A Revolution in the Past 14 Years: Conservatives and Alternative Media

By Richard A. Viguerie and David Franke, Authors of America’s Right Turn (2004)
Much has happened in the alternative media since we wrote America’s Right Turn in 2004. Where do conservatives stand today, compared to liberals, in political direct mail, talk radio, cable TV, the Internet, and the new social media? Here’s a scorecard.

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.

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.

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.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How Halloween’s been ruined by the politically correct thought police

Halloween isn’t the only day Americans wish things could be the way it used to be. Politics has creeped unwantedly into every aspect of our lives – and there’s no going back now. Perhaps today we should take a break from the turmoil and remember the good things in life – and tomorrow start a new trend.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Pundits pontificate on election odds but voters decide from the booth

Both sides’ advocates will use the remaining days before next week’s elections to make their cases on which party will ultimately control the House. Opinions are worth what you pay for them – but voters determine the results. Conservatives are on fire this year; will good things happen?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: From illegal caravans to economic growth Trump is America’s motivator

Some may not like Trump’s style but he gets results. Instead of equivocating like so many American leaders before him Trump states his positions and backs them up with unrivaled energy and action, qualities conservatives used to only dream about. November 6 couldn’t come soon enough.

Don’t Help Libertarians Hand Control Of Congress To Democrats Part 2

By Richard Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
In this crucial election, when control of the House and Senate hang in the balance, we urge our libertarian-leaning friends not to waste their votes on third-party Libertarian candidates who have no prayer of winning, but who, if they pull enough votes from Republicans, could destroy all the progress made in the past two years under President Trump.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ ‘fright night at the voting booth’ won’t scare them to victory

Democrats’ lame attempts to scare people over healthcare and the family separation issue won’t motivate undecideds and independents to vote for them on Election Day. Smart people see through the ruse; President Trump and Republicans would be wise to expose the Democrats’ lies.

Don’t Help Libertarians Hand Control Of Congress To Democrats Part 1

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
When Libertarians run their own third-party candidates, as they are certainly free to do, they all too often split the twenty-first century liberty coalition and hand victory to Big Government Democrats—as they did in Virginia’s 2013 gubernatorial election and the 2012 Montana Senate race.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Anonymous packages mean bombs away on Americans’ common sense

Political civility took another hit this week courtesy of anonymous mail packages to Democrats allegedly containing explosives. Liberals and the media milked the occasion for all it was worth, no doubt hoping to gain traction in the upcoming elections. Ultimately, we all lose because of it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: 2 weeks from elections R’s amp up the base and D’s wonder what to say

In a country as large and complex as the United States, it’s odd that control of the government occasionally boils down to one or two political races. It could be that way again in two weeks. Both sides are pulling out all stops to get voters to the polls. Who will carry the day?

Stirrings on the Right Side of the Internet

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
In 2004, when America’s Right Turn was published, conservatives were behind the liberals in learning how to use the Internet for political campaigns.  But they were learning, and a major campaign victory in California showed what could be done on the Right. (Excerpt 43 of 45.)

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Big shock, media! Voters don’t care a lick about Saudi corruption

The media’s and leftist political class’s disconnect with Americans over the seriousness of threats and situations abroad is hard to reconcile. Elites may think President Trump is in trouble over Saudi Arabia’s complicity in a murder but voters prefer things that really matter.
