My Latest Memo On The 2018 Election

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Democrats, including many of the Party’s national leaders, have now handed the GOP the opportunity to nationalize the election on the mob violence, incivility, radical Leftism and downright craziness that was on national TV during and after the Kavanaugh confirmation.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: When everything’s a political hill to die on, no one reaches the top

Questions on how to conduct effective campaigns or how to confirm the next Supreme Court justice are difficult and opinions diverge widely. The “old” American political system might produce a workable solution, but in today’s environment, everything’s a political hill to die on.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Are normal people now trapped in the Democrats’ uncivil America?

Hillary Clinton’s advocacy for “incivility” in dealing with Trump and Republicans isn’t likely to cause much of a stir on its own. No one listens to the decrepit former presidential candidate, but Clinton’s attitude is all too pervasive in the greater Democrat party. Be afraid…be very afraid.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats about to discover conservatives’ angst that lies beneath

It’s only a matter of time before we find out if there’s another Andrew Breitbart out there or how many Democrats will be defeated in a few weeks due to the party’s outlandish treatment of now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh. What comes around goes around, a principle Democrats have yet to absorb.

Is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a Republican in disguise?

Roger Kimball, The Spectator

The chicly accoutered socialist Alexandria just scored some major points for Republicans with her astonishingly ignorant attack on the Electoral College and the idea that each state is accorded two senators, regardless of its population. Of course, she is not alone. Hillary Clinton, the erstwhile politician, likes the idea of scrapping the Electoral College. The voters understand what the Democrats are trying to do. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pretends not to, which is why she just might be a secrete weapon deployed by the GOP.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: 50 out of 51 GOPers did right on Kavanaugh, isn’t it time to celebrate?

The left’s intimidation tactics didn’t work on Senators Collins, Graham and even Jeff Flake -- and they shouldn’t have. If America’s political system is ever to get back on track Republicans need to stick together to honor this “new” unity. Otherwise, things could get ugly really fast.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Bumbling senate Dems provide ample kindling for GOP grassroots fire

In the aftermath of the confirmation war over Brett Kavanaugh there’s a tangible feeling America has changed – and the Republican Party along with it. There’s nothing quite like watching a good man being irrationally attacked to bring out the beast in righteous people. Democrats are yet to feel the sting.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Donald Trump’s ‘doctrine of patriotism’ sets standard for world peace

Trump’s “doctrine of patriotism” will accomplish its goal of fostering world peace and prosperity among sovereign nations. Leftists and some conservative dreamers believe all the world’s peoples can be stuffed in one little box and emerge in harmony; reality says it ain’t so.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats must pay for treating Americans like addlebrained idiots

Democrats really do think we’re that dumb. They’ve turned the “advice and consent” process into a political sideshow that’s got men everywhere terrified of juvenile sins that might crop up now. We shouldn’t ever have to worry about what’s in a high school yearbook, should we? For this, Democrats must be made to pay at the ballot box.

#MeToo: Coming for a Republican Near You

David Catron, The American Spectator

A last minute barrage of sexual abuse charges will rain down on Republican heads as we approach the midterms. GOP candidates should not cave as soon as they are accused, and Republican voters should support them if they are innocent. The burden of proof should be placed on the accusers and if they can’t produce more corroboration than Christine Blasey Ford has provided against Brett Kavanaugh, they should be ignored. And, make no mistake, the false accusations and the scurrilous smears are coming. It’s time to get your BS detector tuned up.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Treachery on Kavanaugh would trigger a massive justified RINO hunt

As Lindsey Graham articulated so eloquently last Thursday, the Kavanaugh nomination is about confirming a good man to the Supreme Court, not opening the door to fantastic character assassination by self-serving politicians. Any Republican who votes no isn’t a hero – they’re a RINO goat.

Are Republicans Born Wimps?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Democrats fight savagely and for keeps while Republicans—street fighter Trump excepted—are wimps, bewailing any loss of camaraderie with their colleagues across the aisle. Yet the stakes here are immense. Consider how the Supreme Court has remade the America we grew up in. While the Democratic left, understanding the stakes, is fighting bare-fisted, Republicans are sparring with 14-ounce gloves and seeking to observe Marquess of Queensberry Rules.

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.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Blood infatuated media fools no one with barefaced Kavanaugh slander

It's no secret the establishment media delights in reporting on pain and sleaze but the Kavanaugh episode represents a particularly egregious example. Democrats insist Republicans will pay for failing to take Christine Blasey Ford’s side of the story, but Americans see through the ruse.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Republicans learning the hard way a great economy ain’t enough anymore

Objectively speaking Republicans should be doing better this year. With so many things going in their favor the public isn’t responding the way the elites hoped – but there’s still time to turn things around. The GOP can start by confirming Brett Kavanaugh, then fight like Donald Trump.

Republicans Should Not Have Delayed the Kavanaugh Vote

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

The only plan Republicans seem to have had during Thursday's hearing was not to offend anyone by asking questions that were, you know, about the subject matter of the hearing that the whole country was watching. A witness can seem awfully credible if she’s not asked about the incredible aspects of her story. And — voila! — the Democrats have their next delay and can proclaim that Senate Republicans found the allegations so credible that President Trump had to call in the FBI to investigate. Nice job.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: All hail the new breed of fiercely combative and fighting Republicans

It’s hard to predict how the Kavanaugh saga ends but America’s political class received a severe jolt last week. Conservatives searched long and hard for someone other than Trump to stand up to the ugly left – and thanks to a normally calm judge and a reformed RINO senator, we finally got it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Kavanaugh is right; we now have good reason to fear for the future

If Kavanaugh goes down Trump’s strategy is still the same – send forward qualified originalist conservatives and let the Democrats keep disemboweling themselves ahead of the 2020 election. Regardless, the country will never be the same after this is all over – is it the end or a new beginning?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ sick stalking of Kavanaugh disqualifies them from humanity

Whether or not Kavanaugh’s teen history truly constitutes a “disqualifying event” Democrats and the media will treat it that way regardless. Decency and fairness are in short supply these days – if you’re Ted Cruz you can’t even go to a restaurant without being harassed. Is it sick? You decide.

My Explosive Revelation for Thursday

R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator

Republicans who are allowing this travesty to continue have no idea whatsoever how it will end. They have allowed it to go on to the point where they are now in danger of completely losing control of the Kavanaugh hearings. We cannot say how many people can come forward with lurid stories, but we can say that this late in the game the Democrats will claim everyone should get a hearing. No matter how many questions they cannot answer. Or how many questions make them uncomfortable. Or how many questions make them vaguely nauseous.
