GOP establishment

Violencing Politics, Speech, and Religion

The Constitution creates a system of regular and non-violent transition of political power. However, in the view of the anti-constitutional left it seems violence is a justifiable response to losing political power.

Democrat Doug Jones Comes Out In Support Of DACA: Miss Roy Moore Yet?

Whether Doug Jones has an R or a D next to his name in the Senate Directory doesn’t really matter to the Republican establishment that shares Jones’ worldview and policy preferences on issues from DACA and illegal immigration, to the growth of government, to funding Planned Parenthood.

Playing to Lose

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The establishment crowd never wanted Moore to win in the first place and found the abuse charges a convenient added reason to sabotage his campaign. Under a typhoon of negative media coverage, Moore, whose previous wins had been squeakers, needed all the help he could get. But the stupid party was too divided and dysfunctional to lend a hand. The Dems form a defensive circle around vulnerable candidates; the Republicans shoot theirs.

The Uniparty Defeats Roy Moore And Trump Agenda

The game here isn’t electing Republicans – it is “crushing” conservatives and Tea Partiers. What the Uniparty is interested in is maintaining their own power and a Roy Moore victory would have been a serious impediment to their power, but Doug Jones is merely another Democrat to cut a deal with.

Alabama: Send Them A Message On Tuesday

For those of our friends in Alabama who may still have some qualms about Judge Moore – even though the allegations against him have been shown to be a tissue of lies and forgeries – we urge a hard look at the issues and where Judge Moore stands versus his Democratic opponent, Doug Jones.

Trump Endorses Judge Roy Moore – RNC To Back Moore Campaign

President Trump tweeted on Monday, “We need his vote on stopping crime, illegal immigration, Border Wall, Military, Pro Life, V.A., Judges 2nd Amendment and more" before he formally endorsed Judge Moore during a telephone call.

McConnell Caves To Conservatives Stops Opposing Judge Moore

In a stunning reversal of his anti-constitutional attempt to be the one who decides who does and does not get to serve in the United States Senate, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has reversed his call for conservative Judge Roy Moore to step aside.

Kasich Republican Lee Busby Tries To Derail Judge Roy Moore

Alabama Senate write-in candidate Lee Busby says he's a John Kasich Republican -- meaning he's for amnesty for illegal aliens, same-sex marriage and opposes building the wall on our southern border?

How Media Toasts Hurt the GOP Establishment

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Corruption, in the eyes of our partisan media, is solely a Trump problem, just like colluding with Russia to manipulate the election, or hating facts you find inconvenient. When Republicans agreeably proclaim that only Trump is ruining Washington on all of these things, they are trapped in the liberal-media mind meld.

Establishment GOP Puts Cronies over Country on Missile Defense

Angelo Codevilla, American Greatness

As North Korea demonstrates America’s vulnerability to ballistic missiles, and as President Trump pledges “many billions of dollars” for “the anti-missile,” establishment Republicans are poised to use missile defense talk today in the same way they did in the wake of Ronald Reagan’s commitment to it: profit politically from rhetoric, funnel money to the best-connected contractors, and accomplish nothing.

Trump’s Original Sin

Steve Bannon's "60 Minutes" interview provided one sentence that explained most of President Trump's difficulties; “48 hours after we won” a fundamental decision was made to embrace the establishment because Trump needed to “govern.”

Book Review: Citizen Newt by Craig Shirley

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
One of the great strengths of Citizen Newt is to remind readers that the more things change in Washington, the more they remain the same. Thus, Citizen Newt is full of lessons for today's movement conservatives and conservative - populist supporters of President Trump.

Trump Voters: Send Them A Message Nationalize The Election

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Despite the abysmal failure of the GOP’s national leadership to fight the campaign on national issues, the election has been at least partly nationalized on a broader theme – a simple rejection of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama’s failed policies and their stated goal of fundamentally changing America.

Conservative Darkhorse Rick Santorum Gains Support For VP

As a succession of establishment Republican names, such as Gov. Chris Christie, Sen. Bob Corker, Sen. John Thune and Gov. John Kasich, have surfaced as potential VP nominees, and been knocked-down by conservatives, one conservative darkhorse -- Pennsylvania's Rick Santorum keeps popping back up. Click here to vote in our final pre-convention VP poll.

Conservative opposition forces Corker out of Trump Veepstakes

As soon as conservatives such as Richard Viguerie started speaking out against Tennessee Senator Bob Corker’s potential candidacy, the establishment ran in the other direction. Corker’s exit is great news for Trump and improves his prospects of uniting and exciting conservatives going into the Republican National Convention.

Choosing Bob Corker as VP Would Crash Trump’s Campaign

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

If there’s one thing worse than ignoring the conservative agenda, it is claiming to support it and then betraying it, and in that regard Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee stands alone in infamy among those suggested as a potential running mate for Donald Trump. I urge all of my conservative friends to let Donald Trump know that we conservatives believe choosing Bob Corker as his running mate would crash Trump’s campaign and that it is time to just say NO to Bob Corker for Vice President.

Democrats and Media Are Concerned About the Closeness of This Race

Rush Limbaugh.com

Hillary ought to be up 70-30, and she's barely up above the margin of error -- and, in certain areas of the CNN/ORC poll, Trump is cleaning her clock.  This poll is not satisfying.  It is not uplifting.  It is not pleasing to the Democrats.  They're only acting like it is.

GOP Establishment Running Their 1964 Stop Goldwater Plan Against Trump

There are a lot of parallels between 1964 and 2016, but the most important one is this: By defeating Goldwater, establishment Republicans created the opportunity for Democrats and their progressive Republican allies to bankrupt the country in a war that lacked a strategy for victory and to enact the regulatory and welfare regime that continues to plague our economy and limit our liberty fifty years on.

Overthrow The Establishment To Fix The Economy

Larry Kudlow, Daily Caller

Donald Trump may be an imperfect candidate in his rookie political season, but he gets the basic economic story right: Lower taxes, especially slashing large- and small-business taxes. Roll back regulations. Unleash all forms of energy. Take a market-oriented and consumer-choice approach to health care and education. A friendly attitude toward entrepreneurs.

Hillary and the Cowering GOP Elite

George Neumayr, American Spectator

The Democrats never cannibalize their own. When Hillary makes a controversial comment, they form a defensive circle around her. When Trump makes one, Republicans scurry to join the circular firing squad around him. The Democrats give their nominee the benefit of the doubt; Republican leaders doubt the benefit of defending theirs.
