OK, Now That Kavanaugh Has Been Confirmed…

Conservatives have a two-step process to achieve a conservative Congress: First, keep the House and expand our numbers in the Senate. Second, put pressure on the Republican House majority to elect Jim Jordan Speaker to keep their promises on the Trump agenda going into 2020.

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.

Saving the Republican Congress

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

Republicans should be for legal immigration. The “big beautiful wall” Mr. Trump wants to erect should also have big, beautiful gates for immigrants to enter orderly and lawfully. The last thing Democrats want on the eve of the midterm elections is to have to go on TV and explain why they won’t vote for funding the government because they don’t want Mr. Trump to secure America’s borders. And if House and Senate Republicans don’t want to go to the mat on this issue, then Trump voters are probably right in asking: What’s the point of having a Republican Congress anyway?

I Call BS On Tip O’Neill's Claim 'All Politics Is Local'

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
What Tip O’Neill really meant was that focusing on local issues is what wins elections for Democrats, because they can’t campaign on their state and national agendas of raising taxes, opening the borders, enabling sanctuary cities, giving benefits to illegal aliens, cutting national defense and nationalizing health care and anything else they can get their hands on.

The November Election Is About Illegal Alien Crime

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Her life, like the lives of so many others, was snuffed out because our elite made a conscious choice to risk our lives to satisfy its own interests. She was just more collateral damage. We better decide in November where we stand, because a Democrat majority means this bloodbath continues. We’re sick of American citizens paying checks written in blood by a Democrat Party that absolutely refuses to allow our government to do the two most basic jobs of any government – securing our country’s borders and protecting our citizenry.

Remember Mollie Tibbetts

Brandon J. Weichert, American Greatness

The Democrats believe that the Blue Wave is coming in November. They believe that by making 2018 a referendum on the low character of Donald Trump,  they will return to power (and systematically vote to remove Trump from office based on the fabricated narrative that he’s a Russian agent). Let the memory of young Mollie Tibbetts, of her family, and of all the people who’ve been victims of illegal immigration remember just what’s at stake in November.

Forget The GOP: It’s Up To Conservatives To Nationalize The 2018 Midterm Election

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
As I see it, 2018 will likely be another Republican wipeout, like 2006, unless we conservatives nationalize the election by getting voters refocused on big conservative issues; building the wall, limiting immigration, religious liberty, rebuilding our national defense, reducing job-killing regulations, and getting tough on crime and illegal border crossing.

The “Enemy Of The People” Media Were On The Wrong Side In The Revolution

It’s not their criticism of Donald Trump that has made many in the establishment media “the enemy of the people.” They earned the title by embracing progressive narratives on lopsided trade policies, open borders, the admission to our country of millions of unvetted “refugees," big government subsidies for special interests and other policies rejected in the 2016 Trump revolution.

Another Willy Horton Moment: Iraqi “Refugee” in California Was Part of Terror Group

In another "Willy Horton moment" an ISIS murderer and longtime terrorist was picked-up in Sacramento, California after having been admitted to the United States under an Obama refugee program supported by Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and other establishment Republicans.

The Willy Horton Moment In The Pennsylvania Senate Race

Our suggestion is that Congressman Barletta take Mayor Kenny and Senator Casey's support for "sanctuary" cities as the “Willy Horton moment” in the campaign and pound Senator Casey and other Democrats for their support of sanctuary cities and the rapes, murders, drugs and other disastrous effects they have on the citizens who must suffer under their misrule.

Bring It On Hillary

As much as Hillary Clinton may want a rematch, Democrats may not be ready for Hillary Version 3.0. A new Harvard CAPS/Harris June poll shows former Vice President Joe Biden beating her almost 2 to 1 among Democrats, even as the Party's feminist elite itch for a rematch with President Trump.

Progressives Should Back Up Their Rhetoric on Immigration

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

It is almost as if the louder one rails about unfair border enforcement, the more likely one is to avoid encounters with illegal immigrants. It is easy to invoke the Nazis and the Holocaust to express anger at the temporary detention of children and their families who have entered the U.S. illegally. It would be far more meaningful if marquee journalists, actors, academics, and activists knew immigrants not just as a distant abstract cause, or as nannies and landscapers, but as their neighbors, their children’s school friends — and their social equals.

Has the West the Will to Survive?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

The conquest and colonization of the New World and the creation of the United States and its rise to world power required acts of aggression and war of which many among our elites are ashamed. They exhibit their guilt by tearing down the statues of the men who perpetrated the "crimes" that created America. But of these elites, it may be fairly said: they could never have built a nation like ours.

The immigration fight is just beginning, and the media is going to lose

Eddie Scarry, Washington Examiner

Regarding Trump's executive order, what do you think will happen under the administration once the families are released and the parents are caught later because they didn’t show up for their court date, as happens, by some estimates, in about 40 percent of immigration-related court orders? What happens when detention facilities are stuffed beyond capacity because the families now can’t be split? The “crisis” was never the illegal immigrant separations. It was the illegal immigrants.

The Big Immigration Charade

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

That it has been miraculously discovered -- despite having  been going on for decades -- that children are being temporarily incarcerated on the border is a perfect example of that.  It's no accident this surfaced at the moment the FBI is under fire for the Clinton email investigation and the possibility the organization sought to sabotage the presidency of Donald Trump. So "immigration" is once again the stalking horse for everything but itself. It is a dumb show with the poor of Central America used as pawns.

Our border crisis grows worse as Washington sits on the sidelines

Jenny Beth Martin, The Hill

It makes more sense to secure the border first, and only then worry about what to do about the illegal immigrant population that’s already here. “When your faucet is leaking and you’ve got water on the floor, the first thing you do is fix the leak, then you mop up the floor.” It’s common sense. Sadly, common sense is in short supply in Washington these days. Perhaps more senior officials at Homeland Security and the Justice Department should spend time with their frontline troops along the border as I just did. I’d be happy to make some introductions.

The Conservative Case for Corey Stewart Is Clear As a Bell

I see Tim Kaine and other Democrats as dangerous to America’s future, and harmful to people of all races. I see the unconstitutional acts of the deep state, the national debt, and the degradation of our Judeo-Christian values as far more dangerous than anything Corey Stewart could do as senator, if one were to believe the worst things said about him.

Will we get tired of so much winning?

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

It has been a week full of wins for Donald Trump — at least from the perspective of those who share Trump’s view of the way the world works, and perhaps even for some who don’t. These developments may not all turn out to be Trump wins. The immigration bills probably won’t pass and will fall short of Trump goals; Trump endorsement tweets may produce unelectable nominees; negotiations with North Korea may go nowhere. But maybe, as Trump has predicted, we’re going to get tired of so much winning.

Can the GOP Establishment Stop Being Idiots Just Once?

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Why are Congressional Republicans so much more effective at implementing the liberal agenda than the Democrats are? Why do they insist on risking electoral suicide time and time again by trying to jam amnesty down our throats after we keep telling them to jam it elsewhere? Maybe in Washington you think a bunch of illegal aliens worried about being deported is an emergency. Out here in America, we don’t. We think it’s a good start.

Europe's Vanishing Calm

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Atheistic nihilism and a soulless modernism — not religious piety and a reverence for custom and tradition — fueled German and Italian fascism and Russian Communism. Contrary to politically correct dogma, Christianity, military deterrence, democracy, and veneration of a unique past did not destroy Europe. Instead, the culprit of European decline was the very absence of such ancient values — both then and now.
