Viguerie: Republicans reconsidering the death penalty

Richard Viguerie, Washington Times

As state legislatures undergo their makeovers, the public turns against the death penalty, and political leaders voice their capital punishment concerns, we should expect to see even more from Republican officials. Republicans will likely continue to sponsor repeal bills with increasing frequency and reverse the flawed criminal justice policies once advocated by their ideological predecessors of the 1980s and 1990s.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How Mitch McConnell will expose the best candidate in every primary

Conservatives cannot let Tuesday night’s defeat in Alabama deter them from identifying and supporting the best candidates in every GOP primary race. Ironically, Mitch McConnell will help in this endeavor – find out who he backs and think strongly about choosing one of his or her opponents.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Will landing men on the moon help Make America Great Again?

Thinking big used to be a universal requirement from leaders of government, something we’ve steadily gotten away from in recent times. President Trump believes we can regain the same spirit that drove Americans to land men on the moon in the 60’s – here’s speculating he’s right again.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Doug Jones is now a Senator and Democrats STILL have no agenda

Roy Moore’s loss in Alabama is just the beginning of something, be it a complete reevaluation of the political situation in Washington or perhaps even a purge of the ruling class. One thing is for sure, however – the establishment is squarely to blame for Republicans losing a senate seat.

Five ways to improve the tax bill

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

If Republicans were wise, the House would vote immediately to approve the Senate bill, and get it to President Trump’s desk for immediate signature before anything can go wrong. Think ObamaCare repeal fiasco. But since they are insisting on a conference, there are still a number of ways to further improve the bill, grow the economy even faster, and counteract some of the liberal complaints against it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Alabama race unleashes swamp creatures’ insane fury against Roy Moore

The GOP establishment has been backed into a corner in Alabama, just as they were nationwide with Trump’s campaign last year. The American people no longer take the ruling class’s word at face value and they’ll likely be sending another message to the swamp today by electing Roy Moore.

The GOP Establishment Is About To Blow-Up The Pro-Growth Tax Plan

We urge CHQ readers to call their Representative and Senators through the Toll-Free Capitol Switchboard at 1-866-220-0044. Tell them to lower the corporate tax rate to 20 percent, keep the special rate for repatriation at 12 percent and to keep the focus of the tax reform bill on job creation and economic growth, not class warfare.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Spare the sex lectures, bring back the Founders’ morality and religion

John Adams was right – the Constitution can only thrive among a moralistic and religious people. If America is to be brought down it will occur from the inside-out. Our political leaders would do well to take Adams’ words to heart and act accordingly before it’s too late.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Roy Moore’s holier-than- thou critics prove elections have consequences

Regardless of one’s personal opinions on candidates, elections do have consequences – President Donald Trump is an excellent example. Good policy follows from sound votes – don’t let the integrity-less naysayers like Jeff Flake convince you otherwise. Vote for Roy Moore on Tuesday.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Could today’s media report on what really happened at Pearl Harbor?

Pearl Harbor Day deserves its remembrances as a tragic event that eventually brought a nation together. Back then Americans recognized a common enemy and got to work destroying it. Journalists helped in the endeavor – they were a long way from today’s jaundiced news reporters.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: In politics is there really such thing as the ‘lesser of two evils?’

Political races should be judged on their own merits. Candidates by and large aren’t sinister and therefore can’t really be deemed “the lesser of two evils.” Roy Moore deserves a fair hearing by Alabama’s voters next week and despite what the media claims it appears as though he’ll get it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Football team analogy explains why D’s & R’s won’t ever get along

It’s nice to see GOP congressional leaders willing to play a little hardball with the budget. No doubt having Trump acting as the “coach” is giving them some additional confidence. No one but the media expects the parties to get along; whoever wins will be the best “team.”

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Despite media claims the voters care about taxes, not Flynn’s FBI problem

The controversy surrounding Michael Flynn will no doubt prove to have little staying power. The GOP’s upcoming battle in conference committee over the tax bill will dominate the headlines. Media “ants” will continue their wayward scurrying but the public knows what really matters.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Media culture that accepts everything honors & appreciates nothing

No one expects much truth-telling from the media anymore but some of these recent stories have really gone over the top. Since they can’t get to Donald Trump they’re now smearing First Lady Melania. It’s all part of the larger cultural war to reclaim what was once a great America.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Lauer is just the latest establishmentarian destroyed by his own libido

Matt Lauer is gone and people will get over it. The real question now is where does all the “inappropriate sexual behavior” end and how do we determine who’s telling the truth? Harvey Weinstein unknowingly opened Pandora’s Box and there’s no way to seal and lock it again.

The Jonestown GOP

In its blind failure to recognize its dire peril if it fails to pass tax reform, Capitol Hill’s Republican establishment is beginning to look a lot like the unfortunate souls at Jonestown who “drank the Kool-Aid” and committed mass suicide.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If GOP tax reform fails, prepare the way for President Bernie in 2020

It’s fair to surmise Bernie Sanders will never be president. With that being said, the GOP still has a long way to go in selling its tax plan and the benefits of the Trump agenda to the public. It could begin with passing a tax cut/reform bill by Christmas. As for the rest, wait and see.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Should Kaepernick be used to highlight contrasts between R’s & D’s?

Conservatives should learn from the failures of the establishment and use things like Colin Kaepernick’s Un-Thanksgiving Day protest to highlight the differences between the two parties. Instead of wasting time and resources attacking conservatives, GOP leaders should get real and go after the true enemy.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: How conservatives can channel Gen. Patton (& Vince Lombardi) in 2018

General George S. Patton provides salient advice for conservatives in today’s day and age. People like Mitch McConnell are all too willing to let the “body” (the ruling class culture) influence what the “mind” (the voters) is going to do. As conservatives we have our cultural filters and will decide on our own.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: On Thanksgiving 2017, a modern mixed bag of things to be grateful for

Like it or not, Thanksgiving isn’t what it used to be. While there remain plenty of great things to be thankful for this year, the vast majority of the political class isn’t one of them. President Trump may not be a perfect human being but there’s little doubt he’s immensely superior to the alternatives.
