2018 Elections

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How Mitch McConnell will expose the best candidate in every primary

Conservatives cannot let Tuesday night’s defeat in Alabama deter them from identifying and supporting the best candidates in every GOP primary race. Ironically, Mitch McConnell will help in this endeavor – find out who he backs and think strongly about choosing one of his or her opponents.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Will landing men on the moon help Make America Great Again?

Thinking big used to be a universal requirement from leaders of government, something we’ve steadily gotten away from in recent times. President Trump believes we can regain the same spirit that drove Americans to land men on the moon in the 60’s – here’s speculating he’s right again.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Doug Jones is now a Senator and Democrats STILL have no agenda

Roy Moore’s loss in Alabama is just the beginning of something, be it a complete reevaluation of the political situation in Washington or perhaps even a purge of the ruling class. One thing is for sure, however – the establishment is squarely to blame for Republicans losing a senate seat.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Alabama race unleashes swamp creatures’ insane fury against Roy Moore

The GOP establishment has been backed into a corner in Alabama, just as they were nationwide with Trump’s campaign last year. The American people no longer take the ruling class’s word at face value and they’ll likely be sending another message to the swamp today by electing Roy Moore.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Spare the sex lectures, bring back the Founders’ morality and religion

John Adams was right – the Constitution can only thrive among a moralistic and religious people. If America is to be brought down it will occur from the inside-out. Our political leaders would do well to take Adams’ words to heart and act accordingly before it’s too late.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Roy Moore’s holier-than- thou critics prove elections have consequences

Regardless of one’s personal opinions on candidates, elections do have consequences – President Donald Trump is an excellent example. Good policy follows from sound votes – don’t let the integrity-less naysayers like Jeff Flake convince you otherwise. Vote for Roy Moore on Tuesday.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Could today’s media report on what really happened at Pearl Harbor?

Pearl Harbor Day deserves its remembrances as a tragic event that eventually brought a nation together. Back then Americans recognized a common enemy and got to work destroying it. Journalists helped in the endeavor – they were a long way from today’s jaundiced news reporters.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: In politics is there really such thing as the ‘lesser of two evils?’

Political races should be judged on their own merits. Candidates by and large aren’t sinister and therefore can’t really be deemed “the lesser of two evils.” Roy Moore deserves a fair hearing by Alabama’s voters next week and despite what the media claims it appears as though he’ll get it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Football team analogy explains why D’s & R’s won’t ever get along

It’s nice to see GOP congressional leaders willing to play a little hardball with the budget. No doubt having Trump acting as the “coach” is giving them some additional confidence. No one but the media expects the parties to get along; whoever wins will be the best “team.”

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Despite media claims the voters care about taxes, not Flynn’s FBI problem

The controversy surrounding Michael Flynn will no doubt prove to have little staying power. The GOP’s upcoming battle in conference committee over the tax bill will dominate the headlines. Media “ants” will continue their wayward scurrying but the public knows what really matters.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Media culture that accepts everything honors & appreciates nothing

No one expects much truth-telling from the media anymore but some of these recent stories have really gone over the top. Since they can’t get to Donald Trump they’re now smearing First Lady Melania. It’s all part of the larger cultural war to reclaim what was once a great America.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Lauer is just the latest establishmentarian destroyed by his own libido

Matt Lauer is gone and people will get over it. The real question now is where does all the “inappropriate sexual behavior” end and how do we determine who’s telling the truth? Harvey Weinstein unknowingly opened Pandora’s Box and there’s no way to seal and lock it again.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If GOP tax reform fails, prepare the way for President Bernie in 2020

It’s fair to surmise Bernie Sanders will never be president. With that being said, the GOP still has a long way to go in selling its tax plan and the benefits of the Trump agenda to the public. It could begin with passing a tax cut/reform bill by Christmas. As for the rest, wait and see.

The GOP Establishment Wants To Burn Down The Village To Save It...For Itself

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

All this makes it hard to come to any conclusion but that the GOP establishment thinks that the only way to defeat the virus of conservatism is to set fire to the party and hope that a few elections from now their Boehner-based, crony trough-feeding paradigm will rise again from the ashes like a K Street phoenix. It’s as if they want to get wiped out in 2018, and that’s the one objective they actually seem capable of achieving.

The Dems Are Running in Place

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Deeply invested in over-interpreting Tuesday’s results, the media seeks not to cover a 2018 “wave” but to create one by demoralizing Republicans. While the stupid party is fully capable of falling for this self-fulfilling coverage and cannibalizing its own candidates, that still won’t save the Dems, for whom much of the country remains too deplorable to recapture.

GOP Nice Guys Will Finish Last In 2018

Republicans running in 2018 should expect the same kind of anti-Trump ads and attacks from Democrat-affiliated race-baiters that Ed Gillespie was subjected to, so the time to start thinking about how to get ahead of them is now.

Viguerie says Gillespie win in Va. would derail Dems' anti-Trump campaign

Chad Groening, OneNewsNow.com

"The Democrats are saying that they want the 2018 elections to be an impeachment election,” Richard Viguerie said. “They want Democrats to turn out to undo the 2016 election – people who want to run Donald Trump out of town. They say, ‘We need to win the House and Senate, and then we can start impeaching the president.’” Viguerie continued. “And if Gillespie were to win – which I think he will right now – it will take a lot of wind out of the sails of Democrats."

Kelli Ward Takes Commanding Lead In AZ GOP Primary

Even with Dr. Kelli Ward leading the GOP field and likely Democratic rival Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, the Senate Leadership Fund, which is run by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s allies, has said it will do everything it can to ensure Ward is not the next senator from Arizona.

Poll: Senate Democrats Should Be Very Worried About The 2018 Elections

Henry Rodgers, Daily Caller

Only three of the ten Democratic Senators up for re-election in 2018 are above a 50 percent approval rate in states that favored President Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, according to a new poll released Wednesday. Sens. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, and Jon Tester of Montana are the only three with above a  50 percent approval rating, which is not a good sign for the future of the Democratic party, a Morning Consult poll revealed.

Lessons From My Book TAKEOVER: Be A Third Force, Not A Third Party

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
The policy of acting as a separate force within the Republican Party worked well to nominate Judge Roy Moore – even though it meant defying President Trump’s call to support establishment Senator Strange.
