We urge CHQ readers to call Congress (the Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to tell your Senators and Representative to oppose funding Obama’s plan to import more jihad to America through the “refugee” resettlement program.

First, he was unafraid to call the Ohio State attack Muslim terrorism, now Josh Mandel is the first elected official in history to push his state spending to a mobile app. Now you can see the good and the bad in Ohio state government spending from the palm of your hand.

Donald Trump’s outsider- heavy governing style already represents a departure from both parties. Plus, Rumors have it Trump may choose a surfing dark horse for Secretary of State, and, Pence’s heavy responsibility in the transition will continue in the administration.

President-elect Trump, we do not want to 'repeal and replace' Obamacare any more than we want to 'fix' Common Core, or 'tinker' with HUD's Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing. We want these centrally controlled mandates run down, rooted out wherever they lead, and vaporized until there is no trace they ever existed.

Did Newt Gingrich go too far in criticizing Mitt Romney for “sucking up” to Trump? Plus, Trump’s economic team is woefully short on government experience – but that’s a good thing, and, Searching for a replacement for the late Justice Scalia just became a little easier.

Memo to the rest of the planet: Stop panicking over the victory of Donald Trump.  His “America First” agenda is not about abandoning the free world.  If anything, it is about saving the free world—from itself.

In response to Kellogg’s advertising boycott of Breitbart, the popular conservative website has launched its own counter-boycott of Kellogg’s urging its populist – conservative readers to boycott the mega-brand’s processed food products.

To find senior defense and national security officials who share his views, President-elect Trump may have to look beyond the obvious choices who, though undoubtedly talented, have a long association with the failed policies he has promised to rethink.

Trump’s latest personnel moves aren’t making everyone happy, but sometimes we just need to trust that he’s working according to plan. Plus, Teflon Rom meets with Trump on Tuesday night, still no word on Secretary of State, and, Trump’s “Thank You” tour draws comparisons to … Obama.

In pursuit of his “legacy” treaty with Iran, Obama resorted to telling lie after lie to sell something that if the truth were revealed would never be accepted by the American people – and his indispensable partner in selling the lies was Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee.

The Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044. We urge CHQ readers to call Congress to oppose the 21st Century Cures Act (H.R. 34) and to join other limited government constitutional conservatives in opposing this one last giveaway to Obama’s priorities by the feckless Capitol Hill Republican establishment.

Donald Trump’s “wildly unconventional” style will take some getting used to by reporters and the public at large, but change is a good thing. Plus, Expectations are high for Attorney General-to-be Jeff Sessions, but he’ll handle them, and, Doing what he does best, Trump to hit the road for a “victory tour”.

  • David Catron, The American Spectator

    If confirmed, Tom Price will be the best qualified HHS secretary in a generation. His nomination has been received enthusiastically by the health care industry. Moreover, unlike Kathleen Sebelius and Sylvia Burwell, he spent twenty years actually treating patients. He knows the system and why Obamacare isn’t working. If the Democrats successfully Bork him, it means that they can’t be trusted with even a modicum of power.

  • Hans Von Spakovsky and John Fund, Wall Street Journal

    How common is this? If only we knew. Political correctness has squelched probes of noncitizen voting, so most cases are discovered accidentally instead of through a systematic review of election records. The bottom line is that the honor system doesn’t work. There are people—like those caught voting illegally—who are willing to exploit these weaknesses that damage election integrity.

  • Tony Perkins, CNS News

    Bullying Christians may be a favorite strategy of the left—but it’s not necessarily an effective one. Chip and Joanna Gaines of HGTV’s popular show “Fixer Upper” may be sending that message without ever opening their mouths.

  • Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

    I believe the limitation is constitutionally valid. Since it is not effective policy, I would prefer to see Congress repeal it; and at a minimum Congress should waive it so the highly deserving General Mattis may serve as secretary of defense. I believe, however, that the waiver is necessary.

  • Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

    Democrats are, indeed, the old fogeys of politics, honed in the crucible of 1968 and seemingly stuck there for the last 48 years, never revising a single thought, not even now that Tom Hayden is dead, except for the short period when Newt Gingrich put an economic gun to Bill Clinton's head and things got better for a while.

  • Susan Ferrechio, Washington Examiner

    The more concentrated caucus of liberals remained loyal to Pelosi, who, as the congresswoman representing San Francisco, is among the most left-leaning lawmakers in Congress and championed President Obama's liberal agenda during the two years when Congress and the White House were in Democratic hands, from 2009-11.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

    “In wartime, truth is so precious that she should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies.” So said Winston Churchill, the grandmaster of fake news.

  • W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

    Trump's approach is reminiscent of Pat Buchanan's 1996 advice to the Republican Party: "Marry the growth agenda of Ronald Reagan to the America First philosophy of the four men whose faces are carved on Mount Rushmore — and the future is ours." It is too soon to know what the future holds for Trump, but his sales pitch for the next four years and beyond is already taking shape.

  • Conrad Black, National Review

    It is obvious to everyone except the myopic Washington press, fumbling about like punch-drunk prizefighters too often concussed to swing at a moving target accurately, that Donald Trump is preparing to come out of the gate like a fire engine and join Franklin Roosevelt, Lyndon Johnson, and Ronald Reagan as a transformative president.

  • Mercedes Schlapp, Washington Times

    Mr. Trump’s latest triumph is an example of how he will lead. He is results-driven, an unconventional leader who refuses to accept business as usual and a slow-moving bureaucracy. The direct contact with businesses like Carrier shows how he can get results. His style of leadership is already forcing U.S. companies to re-evaluate their own plans and adjusting how they will do business.

  • Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

    Reason for the panic -- the dawning realization, repressed and often unrecognized though it may be, that Donald Trump may even a be a good president, possibly a great one. Then what? If anything could cause panic among liberals, progressives, and the media (apologies for the redundancy), that's it.

  • Kerry Pickett, Daily Caller

    The votes Americans cast for president and vice president three weeks ago cannot go into effect if electors, chosen by the voters, are intimidated or threatened from casting their votes in the Electoral College on Dec. 19.

  • Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

    The ancient Greeks taught us that arrogance brings payback, that nothing is sure in a fickle universe, that none of us can be judged successful and happy until we die, and that moderation and humility alone protect us from own darker sides. In 2016, what could never have happened usually did.

  • Daniel Henninger, Wall Street Journal

    The Trump transition has been talking to and appointing some of the most accomplished and serious individuals in Republican and conservative politics. Donald Trump isn’t pulling rabbits out of a hat. Somebody at team Trump has a first-rate Rolodex.

  • Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

    The familiar partisan lines of the past 20 years have been redrawn, and now we have a more downscale Republican Party and a Democratic Party confined to its coastal and campus cocoons. We'll see how that works out.
