Why Is the ‘Blue Wave’ Looking More Like a Splash Than a Tsunami?

John Fund, National Review

Perhaps one lesson from the 2018 election will be that when both President Trump and Democrats run brutal, divide-and-conquer campaigns, Trump just does it better and more effectively. And when voters finally focus less on personalities and more on issues in the final stages of the campaign, the left-wing lurch by Democrats hasn’t done them any favors in what is still a center-Right country. If the “Blue Wave” really does recede next month, will Democrats just blame Trump, or will they look in the mirror? The answer to that question may be a good predictor for how the 2020 presidential election turns out.

Fight The Mean-Spirited Democrat Attack On Justice Clarence Thomas

If the Kavanaugh hearings were one brief window into the way the radical violence-prone Democrats operate, their latest campaign against constitutional conservative Justice Clarence Thomas shows just how mean-spirited they are every day. We urge our CHQ readers and friends to fight this mean-spirited attack on Justice Thomas by clicking through this link to sign Mr. Lamar Bowman’s petition in support of Justice Thomas.

DeSantis Law And Order Message Clear Winner In Florida Debate

While Democrat Andrew Gillum went through the usual litany of “free stuff from the government” and charges of racism that Democrats have been running on for years, Republican Congressman Ron DeSantis nationalized his message and homed-in on the issues that are on every television and computer screen in America: Law and order and illegal immigration.

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.

Warren Is a Fraud

Ben Shapiro, National Review

Warren wants to be seen as part of the Democrats' ancestry is destiny coalition. She can’t be unless she can claim victimization on grounds of something beyond sex — female status isn’t enough these days. Thus, Warren, using a perversely race-centric view of the world that suggests one drop of Native American blood renders you Native American, has classified herself with emerging future of the Democratic party rather than with its demographic past. The saga of Elizabeth Warren demonstrates once again that the ugly new identity politics dominating the Left drives its own acolytes to radical dishonesty.

The left’s identity politics fall apart

Katie Pavlich, The Hill

Democrat obsession with skin color and gender as a strategy is starting to fall apart and recent cultural events show us how. Nov. 6 is just around the corner and the battle lines for presidential votes are already being drawn. For Democrats, those lines are being crossed as women and minorities vote on interest, not on identity politics.

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.

The Electoral College Debate

Walter E. Williams, CNS News

The Founders saw our nation as being composed of sovereign states that voluntarily sought to join a union under the condition that each state admitted would be coequal with every other state. The Electoral College method of choosing the president and vice president guarantees that each state, whether large or small in area or population, has some voice in selecting the nation's leaders. Were we to choose the president and vice president under a popular vote, the outcome of presidential races would always be decided by a few highly populated states.

We're All Indians Now

President Donald Trump seems to effortlessly induce Democrats to do dumb stuff that exposes their lies, hypocrisy and contempt for the intelligence of their fellow Americans. The President’s latest triumph in this regard is the revelation of the results of Senator Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren’s DNA test.

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?

Liberal Americans Hate America First Because They Hate Normal Americans

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

America First is really about putting Americans first, and when is the last time we saw a Democrat do that? Between foreigners and Americans on trade, they side with the foreigners. Between illegal immigrants and American citizens, they side with the illegals. Between anyone else and us, they always side with anyone else. This November, the people of Arizona, and across the country, need to decide whether they want to turn our government over to people who hate us.

Liberals Discover the Dangers of a Powerful Supreme Court

Doug Bandow, The American Spectator

We can only hope that Brett Kavanaugh’s arrival on the Supreme Court will result in the horrors of which the left warns: government as we know it will disappear, people will be free to live their lives as they wish, and impending progressive political triumphs will be thwarted. Unfortunately, the result is likely to be far more equivocal. Nevertheless, for now schadenfreude offers cause for satisfaction: after spending decades promoting government by judiciary, the left has discovered the wonders of democracy. Maybe eventually they will come to appreciate the value of liberty.

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.

Leftists could cause racial shift among Democrats

Star Parker, Boston Herald

More blacks are beginning to understand that what serves their interests is a nation of law, a nation of moral integrity, a nation in which government protects individuals rather persecuting them based on prejudicial thinking. A booming economy and unemployment claims at historic lows are the result of a nation of law, not a nation of politics. The Supreme Court is on a new track, with a solid conservative majority in place. This is good news for all Americans.

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.

Who Will Save Democrats from Their Leaders?

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

Most conservatives see government as a necessary evil; they would like a limited United States government that reflects this suspicion and the Framers’ emphasis on liberty. Most Democrats see government as a desirable good; they would like an active United States government that rights wrongs and addresses the complex challenges of modern, globally interconnected society. Many brilliant, able people have been that kind of Democrat — the kind of patriot who loves America as it is but strives to improve it, not radically alter it. The country needs those Democrats to take their party back.
