Ted Cruz Is Right – America Is At A Point Of Choosing

What’s at stake in this election is not just who will occupy the Oval Office, but what governing principles will be operative in America for the next generation. Cruz’s succinct formulation is that our goals as a government and as a conservative movement should be jobs, freedom, and security. This is about as tight a statement of the goals and credo of the winning 21st century conservative coalition that the English language will allow.

Will The Supreme Court Elect Donald Trump President Today?

Today the Supreme Court hears the challenge to Obama’s amnesty for illegal aliens. Donald Trump launched his presidential campaign on the issue if illegal immigration, and being the message carrier for America’s forgotten country class voters on that issue has sustained Trump through a series of blunders that would have destroyed any other candidate. Will the Supreme Court rein-in Obama, or will the people have to have the ultimate say at the ballot box?

Charles Hernick: Taking Constitutional Liberty into the Liberal Lion’s Den

Don Beyer is the liberal Democratic incumbent in Virginia’s Eighth Congressional District.  Auto dealer and former Virginia Lt. Governor Don Beyer, is one of the old dogs of Virginia’s jaded liberal establishment. Beyer’s answer to any problem is more government, more taxes and less liberty for Virginians. Charles Hernick looks like exactly the kind of sharp, thoughtful constitutionalist needed to take on the knee-jerk liberal Democratic incumbent.

Marco Rubio’s Victims Speak At Trump Rally

The top example of the soulless pursuit of money over the interests of American workers and their quality of life, American sovereignty and American exceptionalism is Senator Marco Rubio (although Speaker Paul Ryan is a close second) and yesterday Rubio’s victims finally had their say on a national stage.

What Justice Antonin Scalia Foresaw

Terence P. Jeffrey, CNS News

"This practice of constitutional revision by an unelected committee of nine, always accompanied (as it is today) by extravagant praise of liberty," he said, "robs the People of the most important liberty they asserted in the Declaration of Independence and won in the Revolution of 1776: the freedom to govern themselves."

Scalia the Bold Leader for Originalism

Mark J. Fitzgibbons, American Thinker

Scalia understood that American constitutional law is based in the morality that civil society should be structured such that we should do no harm to others. The “we” includes government. The Constitution is structured to limit government’s harm to individuals and our God-given rights. Scalia understood the need for judicial fidelity to that structure.

Donald Trump vs. The Constitution

Editors, Washington Examiner

At a time of high anxiety over the economy, jobs, and terrorism, Trump's authoritarian politics may reassure some voters who, with some justification, have lost faith in the federal government's political will do do its job. But however justified their concerns, Trump should not be the answer for anyone who wants constitutional government.

Trump's authoritarian streak snubs the Constitution

Jason Russell, Washington Examiner

If you think executive power has been abused under President Obama, imagine how much worse it would be under a President Trump. Remember, Obama has taken the attitude, "If Congress won't act, I will," on issues like gun control, immigration reform and Obama's preferred jobs bills.

Trump’s New York Values: Contempt For The Constitution

This is the third in a series of four articles on Donald Trump's "New York values" by Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
One of the primary reasons I endorsed Ted Cruz is that he is a constitutional conservative who has spent the past several decades defending constitutional liberty. Ted Cruz has a consistent record of defending the individual against the power of the state, and unlike Donald Trump he holds the Constitution in such reverence that he does not make violating it into a cheap applause line in a speech.

9 Days to Save America: Sen. Sessions Says GOP Congress has “the overwhelming power” to Stop Obama

As Senator Jeff Sessions pointed out unless GOP leaders in Congress—the party controls both chambers, the House and the Senate—do something to pull back on Obama’s “blank checks” for potentially-ISIS-connected Syrian refugees and other potential terrorists, there’s no way to stop Obama from bringing them in. Please join us by signing our open letter to House and Senate Republican leaders demanding they use their "overwhelming power" to stop Obama’s dangerous policies and unconstitutional actions.

10 Days To Save America: Defund Planned Parenthood NOW!

As big as abortion is as a policy debate, the internal Republican debate over cutting funds for Planned Parenthood is even more consequential from a constitutional perspective. It goes to the very heart of our constitutional system of government and what the role of Congress is in it. Why is it so hard for the sophisticated insiders of the Republican establishment to understand this? Please join us by signing our open letter to House and Senate Republican leaders

Rubio Ready to Admit More Terrorists to USA, Cruz Ready to be Commander-in-Chief

We urge you to read this article and watch Rep. Jim Bridenstine's ad telling viewers, "As a Navy pilot, I flew combat missions in Iraq and Afghanistan... I just watched a despicable ad from one of Marco Rubio's campaign supporters suggesting that Ted Cruz is weak on security." Then ask yourself, "Who is stronger on defending the Constitution, Marco Rubio or Ted Cruz?"

How America Failed to Keep the Republic

Mark J. Fitzgibbons, American Thinker

Through the creation of the “Administrative State,” with vast bureaucracies violating the separation of powers in ways unaccountable to the people and the Constitution itself, America has failed to keep the republican form of government created by the Founders.
