Conservatives To Mitch McConnell: Do Your Job or No Vacation

The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) we urge CHQ readers and friends to call Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to tell him there should be no August recess until the spending bills are passed, the Wall is funded and President Trump’s nominees are confirmed.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Trump-supporting would-be Democrats earn scorn for telling the truth

Regardless of who speaks on the Trump administration, it’s going to stir notice and comment from the self-absorbed media. Saying nice things about the president is akin to treason to Trump’s enemies – and if you’re a member of a protected Democrat class (like Kanye West), prepare yourself for the flak storm to come.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: John McCain rips up the tracks as he exits the Washington swamp station

No one can say for sure what John McCain’s final legacy will be; for all we know a few chapters are yet to be written. One thing seems certain, however – McCain won’t exit quietly. Conservatives should be prepared for more surprises as the old “maverick” rides into the sunset.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Should Trump change so as to appeal to a broader demographic of voters?

It’s hard to tell whether President Trump’s victories of late will translate to more respect from young voters or serve to increase his approval ratings with independents and the last remaining vestiges of #NeverTrump. Success begets success – and it seems to be coming in droves for Trump.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Tuesday’s GOP primaries could equate to more conservative troops in DC

As would be expected Tuesday’s GOP primary election results were a mixed bag for both conservatives and the establishment. Several good people ended up winning – now the hard work begins for grassroots groups to get these candidates elected and headed to the swamp next year.

Conservative Senators Must Oppose Gina Haspel For CIA Director

In her testimony yesterday, Gina Haspel gave conservatives a rare insight into how operatives of the Deep State think and work – and it should scare everyone who saw it or has read about it. What’s more, Haspel gave conservatives concerned about Russia, China and the war Islam has declared on the West absolutely no reason to vote for her.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: ‘Trumpism’ may be a myth but hostility to the president is very real

Questions over the meaning of “Trumpism” will continue long past Donald Trump’s tenure in the White House. Trump’s supporters believe the outsider president is bringing a refreshing new approach to efforts to drain the DC swamp; Trump’s enemies can’t bash him enough. Where’s the middle ground?

Schneiderman Scandal Should Be a Spiritual Crisis for Democrats

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Liberalism has a serious moral and spiritual crisis to confront because this man was protected for all the wrong reasons. The people who cosseted him for so long -- women and men, they all know who they are and some are undoubtedly in very high places -- did so because they thought he was on the "right side" of things. Not only is that a weasel-like version of the ends-justify-the-means (he opposed Trump, didn't he? That means he can do anything he wants), it's a form of blindness about what the "right side" really is. It is the "right side" as habit. It is the "right side" as in "never examine any premise ever."

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Playing by the (senate) rules will guarantee defeat for GOP this year

In some ways rules are made to be broken. Just like with a law that’s repealed, rules outlive their usefulness and validity. Republicans would be smart to remember that bold moves – i.e. “breaking rules” – would not only help pass their agenda; the public would reward them for it too.

We Need More Conservative Warriors Like Jordan, Meadows, Gaetz And DeSantis

Far from being merely partisan apologists for President Trump, Reps Jim Jordan, Mark Meadows, Matt Gaetz and Ron DeSantis are reflecting what their constituents think about the Mueller investigation and the Russia collusion probe.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If chaos equals success for the Trump administration, bring on more of it

The media created narrative of “turmoil” in the White House has clearly taken hold with the public yet it remains a mystery whether it will hurt Republican candidates this year or Trump’s reelection chances in 2020. All we can do is dig below the surface to see where the truth lies.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Should conservatives be worried about what the media isn’t telling us?

Conservatives instinctively know to question everything that’s reported by the liberal mainstream news media but the recent flare-ups over the Correspondents’ dinner and the ongoing pampering of Hillary Clinton are especially troubling. How much bias is there and what are they not telling us?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: GOP’s secret weapon in November just could be the deranged Democrats

The end of the first week in May is never a good time to make accurate predictions as to what will happen on Election Day in November. A million things could occur in the next six months, but one factor will remain the same regardless – Democrats will always be Democrats.

Democrats' dangerous case of Trump Derangement Syndrome

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

Newton’s third law of motion states that in nature for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. It can operate in politics, too. Looking ahead, it’s possible that Republicans in 2018 and President Trump in 2020 could win based on solid achievements. But their chances will be better if Democrats can’t shake off their bad case of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Ted Cruz speaks out on Senate inertia, ruling class makes lame excuses

The Republican “team” isn’t going to get anywhere by sitting on their hands and waiting for November to be over so they’ll know if they’re still in the majority or not. Senator Ted Cruz is the type of leader the GOP needs – the party should govern now like there’s no tomorrow.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ guaranteed jobs proposal would savage American work ethic

Government can’t provide what it doesn’t possess nor can legally obtain. Democrats’ promising everyone a guaranteed job is not only unconstitutional, it’s impractical and would completely undermine the American work ethic. Perhaps most disturbing is the media’s acceptance of the scheme as serious.

I Cannot Handle All This Winning

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Democrats cannot afford to lose their lock on the minority vote – but minorities are now openly asking the question that terrifies liberals: “What have you done for us lately besides run your Chardonnay-guzzling mouths?” Don’t be down. Don’t be discouraged. We’re winning. And somewhere, in a dark room, Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit sits sucking down tumblers of Canadian Club and dreaming of the American Venezuela that might have been.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Americans need to see if Jim Jordan could make difference for the GOP

Jim Jordan is just the type of new leader who could really make a difference this year – not only in the upcoming midterm elections but also by helping accomplish the draining of the swamp. Here’s thinking voters would respond positively to the opportunity Jordan represents in this regard.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Dems’ false delusions poisoned political debate in America today

Democrat elites’ contempt for average Americans is sometimes well-hidden but crops up often. Washington swamp creatures know (or care) little about the struggles of the common folk – and with the tone of political debate deteriorating by the moment, there’s scant hope it will ever improve.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Feckless Congress forces Trump’s attention to the foreign policy realm

With Republicans’ attention dominated by the 2018 midterm elections it will likely take a major foreign policy breakthrough to get President Trump noticed this year. Trump is accomplishing what he can through executive authority – conservatives must pressure Congress to do the rest.
