When the White House announced John DeStefano’s appointment, CHQ Chairman Richard A Viguerie said, “Those who hoisted the pirate flag and joined the Trump team when he was at 2 percent in the polls . . . must wonder what the devil is going on,” and called the choice a “major impediment” to Trump’s goals. And it remains so by every indication one can detect from a recent article in The Washington Post.
We’ve now seen the reality of Ryan – Boehner “show vote” government and it looks an awful lot like government by a less intelligent and less articulate version of the Democrats.
What President Trump doesn’t seem to understand is that when establishment Republicans talk about “governing” and “legislating” what they really mean is growing government at a slightly slower pace or to benefit a different set of cronies than the Democrats would if they were in power.
Eight years after Obama and Pelosi set out to pass Obamacare, Republican Speaker Paul Ryan and Republican President Donald Trump are embarked on similar path that, if it continues, will have disastrous political consequences for the Trump and Republican brands.
Johnny DeStefano’s job as Director of White House Personnel isn’t to hire outsiders loyal to Trump and it isn't to check the SAT scores of potential hires to make sure the top applicants get the jobs – it is to funnel Capitol Hill staffers loyal to the congressional Republican establishment into key jobs in the executive branch.
The battle in the Republican Primary in Arizona Congressional District 4 is shaping up to be a classic battle between a lobbyist-created RINO, Ray Strauss, who is willing to compromise at every turn and therefore see government continue to grow and liberty continue to recede, and limited government constitutional conservative Rep. Paul Gosar, who like millions of other Americans has said enough is enough, and has established a record of tenaciously fighting every battle to stop the growth of government and to preserve our liberty.
Whether Paul Ryan is defeated is not so much a measure of Paul Nehlen’s prowess as a campaigner – although he’s mounted a great campaign – it is more a measure of how tolerant of Paul Ryan’s arrogance and lies the good people of Wisconsin 1 prove to be.

Donald Trump could do a lot worse than Mike Pence as his running mate. However, if he expects that the selection of Pence will close the deal with conservatives he is sadly mistaken, because Pence has shown that he lacks one of Trump’s most admirable qualities; the willingness to fight for what he believes in.
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.
Freedom Caucus-backed Warren Davidson has won the special election to fill former House Speaker John Boehner's seat in the 8th district of Ohio. Davidson stomped out 14 other Republicans in the March primary and had been expected to win the special election in the Republican-leaning district Tuesday.
The most important choice voters will make in the Indiana Republican Primary is “who can beat Hillary Clinton in November?” For those who don’t believe that Donald Trump’s vulgar, crass and demeaning comments about women won’t be a crippling burden in a campaign against Hillary Clinton we invite you to view this video of a commercial being run by Democrat Conner Eldridge in the Arkansas Senate race against incumbent Republican John Boozman.
“I guess Boehner must be very well-acquainted with the Devil because if there’s anyone whose duplicity and fecklessness put the Republican Party through hell over the past six years and consigned it to its present state of political purgatory, it is John Boehner.” Richard A. Viguerie, Chairman, ConservativeHQ.com.
Mike Lee spoke to Mark Levin Thursday evening and didn’t hold back when addressing John Boehner’s attack on Ted Cruz. Keep in mind, Mike Lee is basically the most mild-mannered person in the entire senate, and even he isn’t tolerating this nonsense anymore.

I have every confidence Dr. John Fleming will maintain the same steadfast commitment to conservative principles he displayed in the House if he is elected to the Senate. I urge my friends and family in Louisiana to vote for John Fleming to ensure that a reliable full-spectrum conservative serves as Louisiana’s next United States Senator.
What the Republican establishment fears more than anything, including a Donald Trump nomination, is that when Ted Cruz wins he brings more than a new Republican administration to power – he brings us – the limited government constitutional conservative movement to power.
Speaker Ryan is completely tone deaf to what is driving the outsider candidacies of Ted Cruz and Donald Trump. They are not winning the Republican Primaries by campaigning against Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders – they are winning by campaigning against Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Reince Priebus and the rest of the feckless, principle-free Capitol Hill Republican leaders. Ryan’s plan for this year’s budget will only fuel their candidacies.
This is going to play out exactly the same way Rep. Culberson’s cynical lies about stopping Obama's executive amnesty played out. Culberson will bluster, he will threaten, he may even hold a hearing or two, but absolutely nothing Obama does on guns is going to change because Culberson has already funded everything Obama plans to do right through September 2016. Please sign our open letter to Capitol Hill Republican leaders, tell them "If you won't stand with us to defend our Second Amendment rights, why should we stand with you on Election Day?"
Conservatives see the “compromise” spending bill crafted by Speaker Paul Ryan as a surrender to President Obama, according to a new poll conducted by FedUp PAC. A huge majority wants the House to “remove Ryan and install a speaker who will fight Obama down the line.” Please watch our free "message from the grassroots" video and then forward it to your friends to let the Republican establishment know what you think about their complete surrender to Obama.
The alleged conservatives of the Freedom Caucus who abandoned their support for the conservative reforms they called for when John Boehner was Speaker to support Paul Ryan over conservative Daniel Webster have a lot to answer for now that Ryan has shown the conservative grassroots what he’s really made of in this year's omnibus spending bill. Please join us in demanding an end to this dangerous folly by signing our open letter to House and Senate Republican leaders.
Conservative congressional challenger Becky Gerritson has just issued a stinging challenge on the issue of Muslim immigration to her incumbent establishment Republican opponent Rep. Martha Roby (AL-2). Gerritson is right on target with her pledge to oppose Obama's "open arms" agenda and with her indictment of Martha Roby’s record of supporting Obama’s Islamic Importation Plan.
