No Obamacare Repeal – No August Recess For Congress

The Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044, we urge CHQ readers to call their Representative and Senators; tell them to skip the August Recess to repeal and replace Obamacare, pass the Trump budget and put a pro-growth tax reform package on President Trump’s desk.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Cruz foresaw Obamacare mess four years ago; was he a soothsayer?

Republicans can hold onto their base and perhaps foster inroads among other constituencies by pursuing policies that make a difference in people’s lives. For this it doesn’t require a soothsayer to foresee – it just takes political resolve and leadership to accomplish.

Fighting Fire With Fire

The problem with all of this establishment Republican virtue-signaling and the establishment media calls for civility is that they only go one way. Neither before nor after President Trump hit Brzezinski and Scarborough like a ton of bricks did anyone in the establishment call for civility to the President.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats leap headfirst out of bounds with ‘death party’ rhetoric

It may not be the ideal situation to move legislation without input from the other side but Democrats and their “death party” rhetoric makes it necessary. When the simple matter of trying to forge new laws is demonized to such a degree by the opposition it leaves very little choice.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Agenda-less Democrats’ Russia train heads hopelessly for derailment

It’s only been a little over five months since Donald Trump took office, but thus far he is the one being vindicated by the truth. The Democrats’ Russia train is rolling downhill fast; the brakes are shot and there aren’t any barriers preventing them from hurtling off the tracks.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Did Edgar Allan Poe offer the secret on how to treat the media?

The Founding Fathers counted on an informed citizenry to keep watch over their government. Unfortunately for us the apathetic and antagonistic (to Trump) elements of the populace don’t seem to care about the facts and all too willingly buy-in to the media’s speculation.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Ruling class GOP leaders make Obamacare repeal the art of the impossible

Republicans lose track of what’s important when they hear only the voices of those complaining the loudest about what they’ll miss if a bill is passed or if Obamacare is deservedly thrown into the trash bin of history. They better keep their promises and accomplish something.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Is the American secession movement really gaining converts?

Given the obstacles we’ve encountered and overcome in the past, doing so again in the 21st century would seem to be eminently achievable. But today the schisms loom so large and the political will to work towards consensus is so weak that the task appears insurmountable.

Conservatives Oppose McConnell’s Obamacare Bill

Mitch McConnell’s Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017 is a Band-Aid when an amputation is needed. This is not what Congress has promised the American people and will only pave the way for a government-run, single payer system that Republicans will own. The Senate should, simply put, start over.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Hate to say it Democrats, but Nancy Pelosi ain’t your (only) problem

We shouldn’t worry about the Democrats gaining ground because they’ll never take any good advice anyway. They’re much too concerned with firing up the radical feminists, race baiters and environmental loons to concern themselves with the deplorables’ point-of-view.

Senate Obamacare Repeal Or Just Cosmetic Surgery?

The Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) we urge you to call your Senators, tell them the bill as described in news reports is at best cosmetic surgery, not the full repeal of Obamacare that Mitch McConnell and the Senate Republican leadership promised.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Hapless Democrat surfers troll for electoral waves in flat political seas

The people casting the ballots still need a reason to get themselves to the polls and vote for their candidate of choice. Perhaps Republicans have been fortunate thus far, but if they don’t capitalize legislatively on their election successes the luck will ultimately run out.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Eric Holder slithers out of the DC swamp to save us from ourselves

Democrats are so desperate to find a scapegoat for losing last November they’re latching on to anything that could potentially motivate their followers to stay with them. And if the actions of Eric Holder and post-presidency Obama are any indication, the effort has just begun.

Conservatives Come Out Against Ryan’s Border Adjustment Tax

We agree with our conservative friends David McIntosh, Rep. Mark Meadows and Tim Phillips; it’s time to focus on putting together a pro-growth tax reform bill that can pass.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Can Trump and the GOP fill America’s critical leadership vacuum?

It will be extremely difficult to keep all of the competing interests satisfied in the days to come. The parties are already returning to their pre-shooting divisions and the prospects for an Article V convention remain dim. Leadership is called for. Can Trump and the Republicans do the job?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Whether it takes two years or ten, Trump will break the ruling class

Two years in, the phenomenon that is President Donald Trump will continue to break new ground in American politics. Impeachment will never work and he simply will not quit – ever. Trump will battle the establishment to the death. If I were you I wouldn’t bet against him winning.

Do Nothing Congress Creating Deadly Enthusiasm Gap For GOP

While President Trump holds a 47 percent approval rating, at 29 percent Speaker Paul Ryan's abysmal approval rating is beginning to drag down the whole GOP, and especially its establishment candidates.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: When it comes to hate speech the left owns all the talent in the world

Leftists don’t want a debate because they know they’d lose. The Declaration of Independence states our God-given inalienable rights include life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Liberals don’t want these things – they want thought-control, income redistribution and forced equality.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: The left’s leaky earthen dam of hate is crumbling all around them

After this week’s events will the Democrats suddenly drop their obsession with Russia? Will the media start talking about issues and legislation rather than Trump’s latest tweets and quit branding Republicans as evil and greedy defenders of the rich? Don’t bet money on it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If President Trump should fall who will lift the flag and carry on?

There will come a point – and soon – where the so-called Republican #NeverTrump opposition needs to make a choice to get behind Trump or be cut loose from the conservative movement. Then it will truly come down to a “with us or against us” proposition.
