2018 Elections

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Red State Dems’ faux ‘moderate’ claims fall flat under glare of truth

Politicians aren’t exactly renowned for their truth-telling abilities but Democrats in particular seem susceptible to the “liar” bug. Voters must be trusted to do the right thing in two weeks and here’s thinking Donald Trump’s tweets or Democrat lies won’t deter them from doing so.

Can Anti-Trump Hatred Carry the House for Democrats?

Michael Barone, Real Clear Politics

Democrats could gain most of the 23 Republican districts Hillary Clinton won in 2016, which would get them near the net gain of 23 seats they need for a majority, but would have a hard time gaining seats that voted for Donald Trump. But all those enthusiastic candidates who stepped forth and volunteered to run, campaigned hard and raised piles of money, will probably win enough seats to give Democrats at least a small majority. We'll see -- and we'll see if the young, highly motivated Democrats make a difference on policy, as the 1974 Democrats and 1994 Republicans did.

Florida GOP Candidates Surging: Keep The Pedal To The Metal

Florida GOP candidates Ron DeSantis and Rick Scott have finally found their voices and nationalized their elections, and the Florida GOP is doing a great job getting absentee ballots returned ahead of the November 6 election, but to win they must keep the pedal to the metal.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ ‘Pocahontas’ Warren politics is as bogus as an Indian Summer

Perhaps Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren is the clever one – she’s found a way to distinguish herself in manner that makes her a sympathetic character and Trump the bad guy. The American public feels differently, however, and Democrats will pay a price for defending the indefensible.

Violent Democrats Driving Voters To GOP

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
The Democrats and their leftist mobs are in panic mode.  The few who have a smidgeon of lucidity left realize that their screaming antics during the Kavanaugh hearings and throughout the campaign are backfiring on them. That's why they don't want conservatives to make this a key theme in the final weeks of the election.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: For R’s and D’s in 2018, ‘working together’ just ain’t in the stars

Don’t count on R’s and D’s working together to solve the nation’s issues anytime soon. Trump’s shown a worrisome (to conservatives) tendency to compromise on certain topics but Democrats simply won’t meet halfway on anything meaningful. No one wins…and everyone loses.

For House GOP, midterm pickup chances are rare but crucial

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The GOP will likely pick up a small number of seats in congressional districts that buck the predicted national trend by changing from Democrat to Republican. Any GOP pickups will probably be few and far between. But if the race for House control tightens in coming weeks, they could be critical.Minnesota 8 is not the only district Republicans hope to pick up. There's another in Minnesota, a couple in Nevada, and one in New Hampshire. But none are quite so perfectly suited for GOP victory as Minnesota 8. Perhaps a Republican win won't matter in the scheme of things.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If wishes were fishes Democrats would have everyone eating sushi

Democrats wish for a lot of things, but their cure for the issue “ailments” would end up worse for America than the “disease.” Voters have a chance to stave off endless stupid investigations and Democrat chicanery by voting Republican on November 6. Will conservatives step up?

Save the Democrats: Crush Them at the Polls

Deroy Murdock, National Review

Atop Trump’s 2016 defeat of Hillary, a second, even harsher drubbing in 2018, might be the knockout blow that makes Democrats reverse their unicorn ride into hell and, instead, reinspire America with a program for growth and prosperity. Only then might Democrats stop their madness. It now is the solemn duty of every voter, volunteer, activist, advocate, donor, operative, and candidate on the center-right to assure that the Democrats experience this desperately needed, self-cleansing, paradigm-shifting wipeout.

Why There Are No 'Conservative' Democrats

West Virginia’s Democratic Senator Joe Manchin tries to look conservative but when push comes to shove rather than risk being marginalized he sides with the Party's Far-Left liberal leaders. The same dynamic is now at work further and further down the Democratic Party’s food chain, as a recent report from Pennsylvania demonstrates.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Dems’ beautiful blue wave more like stagnant algae-filled millpond

Democrats seriously blundered by forecasting an ominous “blue wave” would clean Republicans out of Congress simply because of Donald Trump’s personality. Americans aren’t gullible – don’t be surprised if the Democrats’ “wave” turned out to be more akin to a stagnant algae-filled millpond on a windless day.

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.

After good week, GOP House campaigners aren't yet optimistic. But they are less pessimistic

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Everyone knows the campaign has been an up-and-down affair for GOP strategists, and that the middle of the summer, after the Trump-Putin summit in Helsinki and the uproar over separation of illegal immigrant families, was a very down time. Republican strategists who a few months earlier felt confident about keeping the House turned toward pessimism. Their big hope was that something would happen to make things better. Now, perhaps it has. Enter the Kavanaugh effect.

Is The Fed Trying To Tank The Trump Economy Before The Midterms?

The Federal Reserve has raised rates recently and expects to do so again soon. Translation for those not aligned with the Wall Street – Washington – Silicon Valley Axis: The Fed wants to stifle your wage growth and job mobility by establishing a so-called neutral level that neither spurs nor slows economic growth.

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.

Singing only sad songs is no fun

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Democrats and the liberals were winning for so long that it never occurred to any of them that the good old days wouldn’t last forever. But the good old days didn’t, and now they’re as ill-tempered as the alligator the day the creek went dry. Democrats have won many elections under the rules obtaining, and they will one day elect presidents again who nominate men and women to the Supreme Court. The fault, the Bard said, is not in the stars, but in ourselves. That can be a painful lesson, but not learning it will be most painful of all.

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.

We'll Remember In November: This Kavanaugh Witch Hunt Is Radicalizing Us Normals

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

We are not going to forget what happened here. And this is going to have a lasting impact, but not one the Democrats are going to like. As my friend, the fabulous Larry O'Connor, observes, Andrew Brietbart was radicalized by the Clarence Thomas hearings and the manifest injustice that this brave man endured at the hands of lying, hypocritical Democrats like noted aquatic Oldsmobile operator Ted Glug Glug Vroom Vroom Kennedy. Hey Dems, we’re woke, and your go-to tactic of destroying our people? Broke. See ya next month.
