How to Make Ben Carson a Success at HUD

Now that Dr. Ben Carson has accepted Donald Trump’s offer to join his administration as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development we hope he understands that running HUD isn’t brain surgery, but it will still require a team of skilled surgeons, like Wendell Cox, and CHQ contributors John Anthony and Tom DeWeese, who know the issues and are prepared to excise the cancerous anti-constitutional policies Barack Obama has put in place.

Conservatives Demand Action Against Foreign-Funded Anti-Trump Violence

A group of conservative leaders is urging both houses of Congress to “establish and fund permanent standing committees to conduct hearings and investigations, take testimony, and issue reports on all foreign-funded influence operations inside the United States, and on organizations and movements and fraudulent tax-exempt foundations devoted to the overthrow of the Constitution of the United States.”

An Open Letter to President-elect Trump

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.

Unions Plan Far-Left “National Day of Disruption” Today

The irony of today’s protests is that by demanding that illegal aliens be allowed to remain in the workforce the protesters are protesting in favor of one of the greatest wage depressing factors in today’s economy.

The Phony Recount: The Far-Left’s Real Strategy

Of course, it is easier to blame hacking or some kind of vote fraud than it is for Democrats to look in the mirror and honestly assess why they were so decisively defeated, but that’s not what is really going on here.

The Real Goal of the Anti-Trump Riots – Eliminate the Electoral College and the Constitution Part Two of Two

To understand the Electoral College one must realize that the Founders considered the states as the dominate power in the nation. The great mistake Electoral College opponents make is to believe the President was supposed to be elected by the people. It was never the plan.

The 'Constitution Spring'

Hugh Hewitt, Washington Examiner

With one vacancy at the Supreme Court and 99 below in the federal courts and the "Reid Rule" that ended the filibuster on appointments in place, the courts can recover quickly where just a week ago I thought the originalism movement near death.

Hail Hillary: Is There A Clinton Progressive Police State In America's Future?

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
In my new online series and companion booklet on the 2016 election conservative leaders weigh in to explain the threat the election of Hillary Clinton would pose to constitutional liberty, traditional American values and the conservative worldview, and why they plan to vote for Donald Trump.

Toss Personality. Use These Three Things To Judge Trump Versus Hillary

Jeffrey H. Anderson, The Federalist

This election is about more than manners or a battle of personalities. The stakes go far beyond that. Much depends on whether the next president will do the following three things: one, Preserve the Constitution; two, Restore our borders; and three, Repeal Obamacare.

Stop The Obama-Clinton Internet Freedom Giveaway

In a stealth move that would affect nearly every American home and business and compromise national security the Obama Administration is proceeding with an effort that began while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State to illegally giveaway control of the Internet to the likes of Iran, China and Russia.

No, the Constitution Does Not Bar ‘Religious Tests’ in Immigration Law

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

We should resist a categorical ban on Muslim immigration; but nothing in the Constitution prohibits the commonsense vetting of immigrants for beliefs that are antithetical to our principles, regardless of whether the immigrant perceives such beliefs as religious or political in nature.

America's Actual Biggest Lawbreaker

Mark J. Fitzgibbons, American Thinker

Government violations of the Constitution happen every day across the country. Such conduct is properly called “illegal.” Through court opinions and legislative acts, these illegal government acts have supplanted the supreme law over government, and have helped make government America’s biggest lawbreaker.

Louie Gohmert: America’s Last Hope To Preserve Constitutional Liberty

Rep. Louie Gohmert, one man with principles – and a gut level love for his country and constitutional liberty – can do what a gallery full of House Republican mice would never dare – get mad, get emotional, get angry and confront the Democrats about what really got 50 people killed in Orlando.

Conservative Leaders: Stop Transgenderism Transforming American Self-Government & Putting All Children at Risk

We believe that there is a profound need to examine the basis of “transgender rights” before framing any public policy aimed at sheltering these rights at the expense of the privacy and safety of the public. If you share our concerns then please add your name to the list of conservative leaders who oppose Obama's left-wing bureaucrats creating new extra-constitutional "transgender" rights.

Recalling Justice Scalia's timeless warning against an unrestrained federal government

Kevin Mooney, Washington Examiner

Without the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, would be reduced to "just words on paper," Scalia warned. He also reminded audience members that the Founding Fathers did not deliberate over the Bill of Rights during the Constitutional Convention of 1787. Instead, they debated over structure of the federal government.

Civil Rights Commissioner Gail Heriot Agrees with Conservatives on Executive Overreach, Gets Called “Ignorant Bigot” By Liberal Congresswoman

University of San Diego School of Law professor Gail Heriot thinks Obama’s “guidance” to states demanding they open school locker rooms, showers and toilets to students of both sexes is an example of the executive branch overreaching what the legislative branch intended. Far-Left Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren (CA-19) thinks disagreeing with Obama makes Commissioner Heriot an “ignorant bigot.”

Donald Trump, Constitutional Conservative

F. H. Buckley, American Spectator

The list of potential Supreme Court nominees Donald Trump released tells us he’s a constitutional conservative. But even before that we should have figured it out. It’s impossible to imagine him as president doing anything other than negotiating with Congress. Fish got to swim, birds got to fly, the Donald got to negotiate. And that’s the way back.

Justice Clarence Thomas On Our Most Important Duty As Citizens

Justice Thomas' excellent speech received little media attention because citizenship, and the relationship between being a good citizen and having a good country, certainly aren’t topics the Left wants broached, and the idea that one must be a good citizen to have a good country undercuts the very foundation of the Leftist criticism of America and their anti-American “social justice” campaign.
