Stop Squandering “Defense” Dollars on Rich Allies and Failed States

Capitol Hill hawks want to increase military outlays.  Yet most U.S. "defense" spending goes for rich allies and failed states. Washington should reduce its international responsibilities and then its military outlays accordingly.

Washington Should Back out Of Iraq’s New Civil War

The only serious alternative to fully reentering the war is to step back, making clear that the Islamic State’s neighbors will bear the cost of any further advances.

Why Are Bushies Attacking Cruz?

David P. Goldman, PJ Media

The neo-cons will not (and cannot) take on the conserv. foreign policy sages who don’t believe in silly nation-building. They vilify Cruz as an opportunist.

What Obama Won’t Say About ISIS Tonight

The problem that Obama will address tonight is his political problem going into the midterm elections, not the political, military and cultural problem presented by ISIS and the rise of the Islamic State.

Illegal Immigration’s “Unforeseen Consequences” Only Missed By Left

A free pass to American citizenship, an American taxpayer-funded education and healthcare and all the privileges and benefits of living in this country legally are about the biggest incentive for coming here illegally that you could offer to people living in Central America, China and other major sources of illegal border crossers.

There Are No “Good Guy” Radical Islamists in Iraq

Obama’s policy makers like President George W. Bush’s before them have failed to grasp the real lesson we should have learned from the rise of the Taliban and al Qaeda in Afghanistan. The enemy is not a nation state or a government, but the idea of Islamic supremacy deeply ingrained in Muslim culture.

America Should Stop Trying To Fix Iraq, Syria, And Everywhere Else

Much of the Muslim world  is aflame and U.S. policy bears much of the blame.  Washington’s relentless attempt to reorder and reshape complex peoples, distant places, and volatile disputes has backfired spectacularly.

What if the Greatest Generation Had Declared Victory and Gone Home?

It is long past time for our leaders to tell Americans the truth about the war we are in -- the war the radical Islamist jihadis declared on us -- and to mobilize the full weight of our national power and culture for the battles to come.

Obama Outs CIA Agent: None Dare Call It Treason

This is about winning a war and in war incompetence of this magnitude verges on treason.  Losing the CIA Station Chief in Afghanistan because his cover has been blown by the Obama White house deprives the US of one our most experienced and valuable assets in the still hot war in one of the major centers of radical Islam.

LBJ's Great Society: The Establishment's War On America

After fifty years, American skepticism of the Great Society and the big government it created have never been stronger, and the embrace of the Great Society’s big spending and big government by the Republican establishment has never been tighter.

What I Told The Heritage Foundation

By Richard A. Viguerie, Author & CHQ Chairman

Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint is the de facto leader of the conservative movement because he understands that, while the establishment media and big-government Republicans have done a good job of blaming conservatives for Republican losses, the reality is voters consistently reject big-government, content-free Republicans. The GOP only wins when it draws a clear contrast with the secular liberal big government worldview of the Democrats.

Viguerie’s Vigorous Conservative Opus

Jennifer Harper, Washington Times

Richard Viguerie's new book TAKEOVER covers Barry Goldwater, Richard Nixon, William F. Buckley, M. Stanton Evans and Ronald Reagan. He blasts the GOP Estab., The Bushes and consultants, just to name a few. The author is ready to rumble as “civil war” and division rattle the GOP.

Reagan Won By Violating His Own 11th Commandment

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

In my new book TAKEOVER I knock down the myth of Ronald Reagan's so-called 11th Commandment and show how Reagan took all the discontents within the Republican Party to build a new majority coalition and defeat the “dime store Democrat” leadership of the Republican establishment.

Wehner Attacks Palin; Defines Bush-Republicanism Disconnect

Jen Kuznicki, JenKuzniki.com

This is not the first time Peter Wehner, Karl Rove’s lackey, has bashed Sarah Palin, but it is the most clear-cut example of an out-of-touch elitist Republican Party snobbery that is turning off voters.

Tea Party Still Needed to Prevent GOP Lurch Toward Big Gov't

Philip Klein, Washington Examiner

If Tea Party activists are unable to make clear policy demands, then GOP pres. candidates will hire the same old GOP advisers who'll use tired old proposals. A more pragmatic Tea Party movement is still the best hope for limited gov't supporters who want to prevent the GOP from going back to its Bush-era embrace of big gov't.

Common Core Curriculum Twists The Facts

NSA Surveillance Divides the GOP

Conor Friedersdorf, The Atlantic

A GOP resolution that renounces NSA spying is an extraordinary document. For over a decade, the GOP dismissed civil-libertarian complaints about the War on Terror. Now the RNC is changing its tune to join the anti-spying chorus, but Bushies are pushing back.

Is Obama's "Reform the NSA" Talk Just Hot Air?

Jed Babbin, American Spectator

Obama is still blaming Bush for his NSA woes (among other things). But it's time that Congress step up and do their job of keeping executive powers in check.

Ed Gillespie, Big Business Lobbyist Announces for US Senate

Google search is an unforgiving mistress, says James V. DeLong and Ed Gillespie's connections with the business establishment, which supports ObamaCare, the immigration cave-in, infrastructure pork, and Common Core, will provide rich themes for attacks from Democrats and questions from limited government constitutional conservatives.

More Now Blame Obama, Not Bush, On Economy
