Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ ‘fright night at the voting booth’ won’t scare them to victory

Democrats’ lame attempts to scare people over healthcare and the family separation issue won’t motivate undecideds and independents to vote for them on Election Day. Smart people see through the ruse; President Trump and Republicans would be wise to expose the Democrats’ lies.

Election 2018: Worst-Case Scenario

Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

There are plenty of districts for Republicans to worry about during these final few days of the campaign season. What’s frightening is that the Democrat candidates in nearly all these competitive races are extremists who pretend to be “moderates” concerned about “working families.” This means that if Democrats win on Nov. 6, the next Congress will be even more radical than it was the last time Nancy Pelosi was House Speaker. Do Americans really want to go back to that? Are people in Florida crazy enough to elect Andrew Gillum governor? Will Arizona really elect someone like Kyrsten Sinema to the Senate?

Don’t Help Libertarians Hand Control Of Congress To Democrats Part 1

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
When Libertarians run their own third-party candidates, as they are certainly free to do, they all too often split the twenty-first century liberty coalition and hand victory to Big Government Democrats—as they did in Virginia’s 2013 gubernatorial election and the 2012 Montana Senate race.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Anonymous packages mean bombs away on Americans’ common sense

Political civility took another hit this week courtesy of anonymous mail packages to Democrats allegedly containing explosives. Liberals and the media milked the occasion for all it was worth, no doubt hoping to gain traction in the upcoming elections. Ultimately, we all lose because of it.

The White-Privilege Tedium

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

The natural result should be that eventually even liberal, progressive, and left-wing whites will at last logically check their privilege and turn over their reins of power to more deserving nonwhites as long-overdue compensations for their own unwarranted exclusivity. The next time you hear a journalist, politico, or academic preen on and on about white privilege, assume that such assertions probably have little to do with real white privilege and everything to do with the insecurities, agendas, and careerism of the speaker.

The little surprises of October are at hand

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

A new trade deal with Canada and Mexico, the Kavanaugh hearings and eventual confirmation for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court are three surprises in one and together they threaten to change everything the wise heads have been telling us about what to expect to see in the headlines of the morning papers on Nov. 7 — that the tsunami had rendered the House of Representatives unto Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats. With two weeks to go until Decision Day, that’s looking less inevitable every day.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: 2 weeks from elections R’s amp up the base and D’s wonder what to say

In a country as large and complex as the United States, it’s odd that control of the government occasionally boils down to one or two political races. It could be that way again in two weeks. Both sides are pulling out all stops to get voters to the polls. Who will carry the day?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Big shock, media! Voters don’t care a lick about Saudi corruption

The media’s and leftist political class’s disconnect with Americans over the seriousness of threats and situations abroad is hard to reconcile. Elites may think President Trump is in trouble over Saudi Arabia’s complicity in a murder but voters prefer things that really matter.

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.
