Does Trump’s VP Short List Include A Conservative Dark Horse?

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
The choice Donald Trump makes for Vice President will make – or break – the deal he needs to conclude with conservatives to cement a winning populist – conservative coalition. What Trump has said is indicative of his background as a CEO in this new age of creative disruption; he "wants a vice president who knows Washington, is able to deal with the Congress and could be viewed as somebody who could be president." In other words, a working VP who, with a Republican majority in Congress, bridges the full spectrum of right-of-center Washington.

Iran Nuclear Weapons Deal A “Go” Corker and McConnell Betray America One More Time

Rather than take the path outlined by our friends Andy McCarthy and Ted Cruz to leave the sanctions in place, thanks to yesterday’s vote – forced for no reason by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell – McConnell and Corker have effectively given the Iranian nuclear weapons program the go ahead and hobbled the next (hopefully conservative) President who might have been expected to try to undo the vast damage to our national security Bob Corker, Mitch McConnell and Barack Obama have inflicted.

What Should Congress Do First?

The Republican establishment “leaders” who run Capitol Hill are notorious for not being able to walk and chew gum at the same time and appear to be genetically unable to deal with more than one major issue at a time. Please tell us which of these important issues Congress should deal with first; defunding Planned Parenthood, defeating the Obama – Corker Iran nuclear weapons deal, the Meadows resolution to oust Speaker Boehner or the need to pass appropriations to fund the federal government for the fiscal year starting October 1?

This is Big: Trump, Cruz to Hold Joint Event to Defeat Iran Deal

The great – and most important message of a Trump – Cruz media event on the Iran nuclear weapons deal isn’t that two Republican presidential candidates are against it; it is that the two populist conservative message carriers are going to get together to let the American people know that we have been betrayed by Obama and the Capitol Hill Republican leadership.

Is The GOP's 2014 Midterm Coalition Gone Forever?

The GOP's Capitol Hill leaders have scratched from the race with Obama so many times if they were horses they'd have been dog food years ago.

The Exquisite Hypocrisy Of 20 Republican Senators

After 20 Republicans opposed Cruz’s point of order declaring the “CRomnibus” to be unconstitutional our principled conservative compatriots at Heritage Action compiled a list of “what they said then” on amnesty versus how they voted that is such an exquisite example of Washington insider hypocrisy that we have to share it in its entirety.

CONFIRMED: Senate GOP Leaders Paid for Attacks On Conservatives

Erick Erickson, Red State

The attack ads in MS run by “All Citizens for Mississippi” were funded by Senate R's, including Sens. Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn, Rob Portman, Bob Corker, and Roy Blunt. Senate Repub. leaders are willing to risk losing a majority so they can get their own re-elected. 

Obama and McCain Heading Us Toward War in Syria

McCain, Graham and Corker would like Americans to believe that a “very surgical and responsible” intervention won’t involve American troops or “boots on the ground.” We doubt that fits the reality of what it would take to secure one of the largest chemical weapons stockpiles in the world. If we intervene, then someone is going to have to follow-up on the ground to make sure the chemical weapons are secured -- and that someone is logically the American military.
