We urge our friends in Texas Congressional District 21 to turnout for the May 22 runoff and to vote for Chip Roy, the one candidate in the race who can be trusted to keep his promises once he gets to Washington. Click here to learn more about how you can help Chip's conservative campaign for Congress.

We urge all of our Second Amendment supporting friends to go to the GOA website and use the tools they have to let your Representative know that you oppose Kevin McCarthy for Speaker, and that you want a principled, limited government constitutional conservative like Jim Jordan to be the next Speaker of the House.

Not everything is as it appears on the surface. James Comey’s backhanded slap at the GOP was actually a positive thing for Republicans, just as a change in leadership in the House is entirely necessary to ensure good legislation sees the light of day. For conservatives, change couldn’t come fast enough.

Here is the list of cosponsors of of Speaker Ryan's “Queen of the Hill” resolution. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) we urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Representative today to urge them to not to sign on to H.Res. 774 and to oppose any bill that grants amnesty to illegal aliens.

And unlike Paul Ryan, Kevin McCarty, Steve Scalise and the rest of the existing establishment Republican “leadership” Jim Jordan has not been compromised by voting to give our tax dollars to the baby killers of Planned Parenthood.

Donald Trump came to Washington in order to shake the system to its core and wrest power away from the swamp dwellers who’d polluted the water for decades. As the recent Comey episode proves, the work is just beginning – there’s an awful lot of slime to scrape off the sidewalks.

The reasoning in Myers v. United States, decided by the Supreme Court in 1926, applies to the President’s ability to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller if he so chooses. Congressional attempts to “protect” Mueller from the President’s clear constitutional authority are intentional efforts to precipitate a constitutional crisis for the benefit of those who think impeaching President Trump will benefit them politically.

Meyer Distributing CEO and Republican U.S. Senate Candidate Mike Braun yesterday unveiled a new advertising campaign titled “Swamp Brothers” that may remake how outsider candidates run against their establishment Republican primary opponents.

Perhaps the money will flow in this year, perhaps it won’t. The GOP will survive regardless – but will the conservative cause? It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that as long as Republicans do what they’re supposed to do that good things will follow, including coffers full of campaign cash.

If Republicans really control the Senate, then why are they making confirming Republican President Donald Trump’s department heads and subcabinet posts so difficult? A case in point is the nomination of Rep. Jim Bridenstine to serve as administrator of NASA, whose nomination has languished since September 2017.

Through their direct mail campaign,  Fauquier County, VA conservatives won control of their Republican Party committee. They increased their voter turnout from the last reconstitution election by almost 20%, won the Chairmanship and even more revealing, they won 88% of the contested precinct committee seats on election day!

When Paul Ryan officially leaves Congress people will remember him as the humble Wisconsin boy who always put on a positive face and did his best in the House. Conservatives will remember all the things Ryan didn’t do – and the next speaker had better be prepared to make things right.

Bob served his country as a civil servant for thirty-three years on Capitol Hill, and he was the Chief Clerk at the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry. His most recent years were also spent working at American Target Advertising.

    To much of the world America has become the most secularized and decadent society on earth, and the title the ayatollah bestowed upon us, “The Great Satan,” is not altogether undeserved. And if what “our democracy” has delivered here has caused tens of millions of Americans to be repulsed and to secede into social isolation, why would other nations embrace a system that produced so poisoned a politics and so polluted a culture?

  • George Neumayr, The American Spectator

    Comey is just a garden-variety ambitious and greedy D.C. operator, but because of his various pompous complexes, he has a need to sanctify all of that in the mumbo-jumbo of quasi-religion and “betrayed” ideals. One has to laugh at his announcement that he is no longer a registered Republican, as if that registration had any meaning apart from his ambition to receive appointments in Republican administrations. Did he register as a Republican and vote for Democrats?

  • Editors, Washington Examiner

    The Russia investigation isn’t going to ensnare Trump. So the best thing Trump can do for himself and his country is to let Mueller finish his job. If the Senate can encourage him to do that with a firm warning, then every senator who supports Trump, as much as those who oppose him, should be eager to issue it.

  • Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

    You know all that insufferable babbling and crying about “principles” we had to endure from you Never Trump Konservative Ken Dolls? No one’s fooled. And no one cares. Which ought to scare the hell out of you. Because when the liberals figure out that you have zero credibility with us real conservatives, you’ll stop being their useful idiot. You’ll just be a plain old idiot.

  • Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

    The loyal Trump voter says not to intervene. The rabid Trump haters say to intervene. And the fence-sitters will eventually offer judgment based only on the success or failure of the mission. For now, Trump should keep quiet, stop tweeting his intentions, and give no indication of what he might do next. If he decides to act again in the future, then he should do it unexpectedly, with overwhelming force, and with the intention that he won’t have to do it again very often.

  • Bill Donohue, CNS News

    The left has only one god: power. That is what defines it. To the extent that Chick-fil-A inspires people to adopt its values, it is a threat to radical secularists. Moreover, survey data have repeatedly shown that a very large portion of the "nones," those who answer "none" when asked about their religious affiliation, are on the left. They see Christian activists as a threat. Jews are too secular to begin with, and Muslims are too small to matter. So they focus on Christians.

  • Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

    Courts “don’t do poetic justice, they do prosaic justice” — the routine, workaday adherence to the principles and standards on which the rule of law depends. Under that kind of justice, courts protect uncharged people from being identified in public proceedings in connection with criminal investigations. The failure of the court and the government lawyers to enforce that standard just adds fuel to the fiery contention that, where President Trump is involved, investigations are driven by politics, not law enforcement.

  • Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

    It’s economic policy that makes the difference for women and their families. We all deserve serious policy proposals and action that results in meaningful, direct change. We’re getting that with Mr. Trump’s policy and legislation. With the Democrats, we get warnings of death and destruction. Perhaps they’re finally being honest about what their agenda has to offer.

  • L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

    The "news" media are stuffing Comey's pockets with book profits, just as they're drooling over the possibility of a similar boom in their ad revenues. "Telling all" about Trump is a proven get-rich-quick scheme. The networks act as conveyor belts for "news" that makes Democrats happy or lets Democrats vent about what (and who) they hate. In this age of Trump-bashing opportunism, they have demonstrated they have exactly as much nonpartisan integrity as James Comey.

  • Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

    There’s talk that Mueller is winding up his investigation. Whenever he finishes, it seems unlikely his work will fulfill the daydreams so many liberals have of making Trump go the way of Richard Nixon. Meanwhile, the evidence builds of collusion by the Obama administration's law enforcement and intelligence personnel in trying to elect Hillary Clinton and defeat and delegitimize Donald Trump in and after the 2016 presidential election.

  • Julie Kelly, The Federalist

    Seven months is still a long way off and anything can happen, especially when the head of one’s party is impulsive and erratic. If Trump can hold it together, the Robert Mueller probe continues to lose support among Americans, the economy chugs along, and we look tough abroad, Republicans can keep control of the House until the next presidential election. At least for now, it appears that the hundreds of political influencers who bet Trump would “ruin” the GOP and cause massive losses this November were dead flat wrong.

  • Steven Greenhut, The American Spectator

    The California Legislature constantly does the bidding of public-sector and private unions,and imposes wage rules and work laws that make it difficult to do business here. Why shouldn’t lawmakers have to deal with the same laws themselves? Nothing would accomplish that more successfully than allowing their own employees to unionize. What’s good enough for us should be good enough for them.

  • George Neumayr, The American Spectator

    “This is not a tin-pot dictatorship,” says Comey. But aren’t Brennan and Comey acting like officials of a displaced one? They are trying to claw back to power by spreading unverified charges against a duly elected president. Brennan says without evidence that the Russians have “something” on Trump. Comey says without evidence that it is “possible” Trump paid prostitutes in Moscow to urinate on each other. Here we have the two former guardians of the nation’s secrets showing less restraint than gossip columnists at TMZ.

    Trump, as he has demonstrated, has little use for ideology or even consistency. In a constantly changing world, he may be right. Those who are looking for some sort of Trump Doctrine may be looking for something that is actually outmoded. So far he is being more successful than Obama and all the neo-Marxist works of Marcuse, Gramsci, etc. combined.
