Viguerie Joins 92 Conservative Leaders Backing Pompeo For Secretary Of State

CHQ Chairman Richard A. Viguerie and 92 leaders of CAP have issued a statement backing Mike Pompeo for Secretary for State saying, "Pompeo’s vast experience across multiple levels of government has demonstrated his commitment to protecting America’s interests, and make him uniquely qualified to lead the State Department through complex and challenging times."

Outsiders vs. Insiders: #NeverTrump’s days are numbered for one reason: nobody trusts them

#NeverTrump’s influence is waning in today’s American politics. The last remaining conservative and Republican anti-Trump holdouts would be well served to take Rich Lowry’s advice – keep a close eye on Trump but don’t be afraid to support the man who’s doing a lot of good things.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: It’s about time we ask: Are Californians crazy or just plain stupid?

It's a sad fact of life that California has become the running joke of the United States. One wishes the Golden State’s leaders could just stare into a mirror and recognize exactly how stupid they look to the rest of the country. But then again, if they did that, they just might see a crazy person.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Are Trump’s course corrections a sign he’s finally listening to us?

Trump would benefit by keeping perspective. At a point in his presidency where his approval ratings are slowly improving it’s time for him to listen to conservatives who provide sound advice on the best path forward. A lot will depend on Trump’s ability to avoid making the same mistake twice.

Democrats Want To Repeal The First And Second Amendments

Retired Supreme Court Associate Justice John Paul Stevens, a liberal appointed by establishment Republican President Gerald R. Ford, yesterday penned an op-ed in the New York Times calling for the repeal of the Second Amendment and the idea is embraced by the same progressives that just a few years ago wanted to change the First Amendment to limit free speech.

Democrats Sue Over Citizenship Question In The Census

The Democrats’ eruption over the citizenship question is that states with large illegal alien populations don’t want a future Congress to eliminate illegal aliens from being counted for the purposes of congressional reapportionment and allocation of federal funds where they are currently stealing from the rest of America’s taxpayers and voters by inflating their population with illegal aliens.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Fragile gun-hating snowflakes always melt under the glare of truth

Pontificating and grandstanding by uninformed emotional teenagers isn’t going to do the trick. Self-congratulatory movements (Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, #Resist) not only have a way of flaming out -- they usually come with a serious backlash too. If David Hogg keeps opening his mouth, expect the same very soon.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Want to get folks amped up, Republicans? Stick (literally) to your guns

It should not be underestimated how important it is for congressional Republicans to give credence to promises made during the last election cycle. By and large GOP candidates ran on a law and order platform, including immigration enforcement; they’d be wise to stick to their guns in 2018.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Heinous spending bill leaves frustrated conservatives soul-searching

Donald Trump hates to lose but that’s exactly what’s happening with the Republican party lately. Americans sent the president and lawmakers to Washington to fight for the Constitution and their rights – not to make deals under duress from Democrats. Will it ever get better? Time will tell.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Budget sellout threatens to ‘beat the h-ll’ out of Republicans in 2018

Politics is a dirty business and street fighters like Joe Biden relish the opportunity to punch Trump in the proverbial nose (and dream about fighting him behind the high school gym). If Republicans can’t get their fiscal act together the voters might just do the same thing – for real.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: DC swamp creatures loved status quo until Trump came to town

The governmental status quo is being liquidated under President Trump and the establishment elites (and their supporters -- liberals, teens, #NeverTrumpers) hate it. The days and months ahead will be unsteady for all concerned – and some of us wouldn’t have it any other way.

The Confederate Mind

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

A century from now, our successors are likely to be as bewildered by the classifications of affirmative action and designated safe spaces as we are by segregation and “separate but equal” schools. A century after the Civil War, in reaction to the legacy of the Confederacy, progressives fought for integration; a century and a half after the Civil War, progressives are channeling the one-drop rule and advocating race-based dorms, safe spaces, and race-themed houses.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Media’s scorching of Trump and family bares desperation of the Left

There are few certainties in life but one is the media’s mission to derail the Trump presidency, which will continue unabated until he’s taken down – or leaves office after eight years. All the lurid “Stormy” Daniels tales in the world won’t give them what they ultimately desire – an end to Trump himself.

New Poll: Voters Will Reward Trump with Continued Majorities in Congress

Conservatives responding to the latest FedUp PAC poll are confident that President Trump’s voters are still behind him, with almost 89% saying that Republicans will hold their Congressional majorities in the 2018 elections.  Less than 5% expect Democrats to win a majority which would give them the votes needed for impeachment.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ rush to the finish line in November could end in a pile-up

Lucky for Republicans politics is an ever-changing game that is rarely cut-and-dried in favor of either party. If people still believe in “sure things” maybe they should ask Hillary Clinton about it. Democrats certainly have problems of their own – and there’s a long way to go until November.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If enthusiasm is key to 2018 midterms it’s time for the GOP to worry

It may not yet be time for Republicans to worry but it’s clear if they don’t improve that more elections like last week’s Pennsylvania disaster will follow. There’s still plenty of DC swamp left to drain – and they’d better get back to doing it or the base’s enthusiasm will evaporate.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How the media sold an octogenarian woman as the voice of today’s kids

No life or death issues are easy and often there are good arguments on both sides. It’s just plain arrogance on behalf of liberals like Dianne Feinstein to claim there are no reasonable alternatives to banning “assault weapons”. Political decisions have consequences indeed.

Rand Paul Stands Against Warmongers And Torturers

Principled liberty-minded Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky has announced that he will oppose the nominations Mike Pompeo and Gina Haspel, Trump’s choice for Secretary of State and Director of the Central Intelligence Agency.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: With Trump’s populism, take the (mostly) good with the (sometimes) bad

Populism has become a dirty word but only because Trump’s critics and enemies accuse him of enslaving himself to the will of the masses. Trump’s lack of core principles is problematic at times (guns and immigration) but keeping his campaign promises, on balance, is a good thing.
