About Us

Meet the Editors

chris_adamo_bioChristopher G. Adamo is a resident of Wyoming. He has participated in local and state level political campaigns, as well as having written articles for regional and national print publications. For many years, he wrote a popular weekly column that appeared throughout the Internet. During the course of his political involvement, he came to the realization that liberalism is alive and well inside of the GOP. And it is there that it must be overcome if conservatism and the principles of America’s founding are to prevail in modern politics. It was for this reason that he and Chip McLean established Rinotracker.us.

Chip McLean is the founder and publisher of Outsider News Publishing (formerly CHCH News Publishing), the umbrella for Rino Tracker, Capitol Hill Outsider and Capitol Hill Coffee House. chip-bio-pic1Chip is a former broadcaster and veteran sales professional whose interest in politics began in 1964 at the age of eight, when his parents took him to a Barry Goldwater rally during the presidential campaign. He identifies himself as a “constitutionalist” who has witnessed an out-of-control federal government – with the “help” of both major parties – disregard the very document they are sworn to uphold. When he was approached by long-time friend and writer Chris Adamo about the concept of the Rino Tracker, Chip knew he should help to bring the project to life.

Mission Statement

The goal of Rinotracker.us is to be an information resource for the American public so that Republican political office holders can be held accountable to keep campaign promises they make and uphold the ideals they profess as Republicans. For many years now, conservatism has been systematically thwarted at critical junctures by liberal “Trojan Horses” bogusly claiming allegiance to the Republican Party. Yet when election time approaches, virtually every Republican attempts to convince voters they carry the Ronald Reagan torch. All too often, this ploy works. Consequently, America has continued to drift left in spite of strong public support for renewed commitment to its founding principles.

At Rinotracker.us, the standards of conservatism and the Constitution (clearly enumerated in the National Republican Platform) will be diligently upheld, and any “Republican” politician who demonstrates an aversion to them and/or an intention to undermine them will be represented as such. In this manner, voters can be best equipped to make an informed decision in future elections.

For this effort to be successful, input from readers who agree with our guiding principles will be essential. Those who share our views are encouraged to sign up with us, and send us news links of interest, along with their personal views on issues of the day. Together we hope to rise above all the disingenuous posturing and deceit of the current political environment, and begin the work of restoring the nation and the governing process.
