Once the power to track someone is granted to the Department of Justice the criteria for tracking will surely expand. We urge CHQ readers to call Congress (the Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to tell your Representative to oppose H.R. 4919 when it comes up under suspension later today.
Far from being dark or dystopian, we found in Donald Trump’s acceptance speech the first glimmer of hope for the restoration of our country and the real change for which Mr. Viguerie has long campaigned: My message is that things have to change and they have to change right now. Every day I wake up determined to deliver a better life for the people all across this nation that had been ignored, neglected and abandoned.
In a campaign that is all about communicating brand before policies and ideas Tiffany Trump’s remarks stood out as what may very well be the first speech about love delivered to a national political convention and for that distinction we deem it the most import speech of the evening.
The Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044 we urge CHQ readers to call Speaker Ryan, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Homeland Security Chairman Mike McCaul to tell them it is time to confront the subversive pre-violent elements of civilization jihad, such as influence operations, lawfare, infiltration, migration, material support for terrorism, etc. Tell them that there is no acceptable substitute for Victory Over Jihad and that their bill falls far short of putting in place the tools necessary to defeat the clear and present danger civilization jihad presents to constitutional liberty and Western civilization.
Stalling the vote to elect a new Speaker is all about those who have been wrecking the country keeping their power in Congress, and thwarting the will of We the People. And of course the establishment media – including what one might call the “conservative establishment” are right there covering for them. We urge you to join our effort to end the stalling and elect a conservative Speaker by signing our open letter to the House Republican Conference through this link. Or you can call your Representative – the House switchboard is 1-866-220-0044 – to tell them you want a conservative Speaker like Daniel Webster, not Boehner-lite, like Rep. Paul Ryan or Kevin McCarthy.
We strongly urge conservatives to stand fast behind principled limited government constitutional conservative Daniel Webster of Florida, and not allow themselves to be suckered into backing a “compromise” candidate for Speaker. Conservatives who fold and back a “compromise” Speaker will own the results of that Speaker’s policies. And this is particularly true of Paul Ryan, who is as bad or worse than John Boehner and Kevin McCarthy.
Becky Gerritson has issued a statement that should be a clarion call to every conservative thinking about running for Congress; "I am pleased that we will not have an unacceptable choice in Kevin McCarthy forced upon us. My hope is that, in the days ahead, a true conservative will win out in the Speaker's race. However, that new Speaker will not have the support he or she needs to lead our Party forward- strong and unified- unless we bolster the ranks of true conservatives in Congress."
The House Republican Conference meets today to nominate a candidate for Speaker. We urge you to call your Representative (the House Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to tell him or her that we conservatives are watching how they vote and that we demand they vote for a conservative, such as Daniel Webster, for Speaker.
A letter from Rep. Walter Jones of North Carolina to the House GOP admonishing Members seeking leadership positions to withdraw if there were any skeletons in their closet and "to drop out if they might one day embarrass the party because of past indiscretions" hit like a bombshell in the House Republican Conference.
In our latest coverage of the House Republican leadership races we contrast the word salad Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz dumped on Chris Wallace’s desk during Fox News Sunday with the straightforward commitment made by Rep. Daniel Webster of Florida to eliminate the dysfunctional anti-conservative process House establishment Republicans have used to thwart the conservative agenda.
The Conservative Opportunity Society, the House Freedom Caucus, the House Liberty Caucus and the Tea Party Caucus are hosting the hopefuls for speaker next Tuesday. It will give Kevin McCarthy and Daniel Webster a chance to debate issues with the right flank of the party.
A group of prominent right-leaning organizations formed a coalition Wednesday dubbed "Fire Kevin McCarthy," pledging to remove the California Republican should he be chosen to replace John Boehner when he retires at the end of next month.
Liberty-minded Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky asks the fundamental question House Republicans face when they elect new leaders, including a Speaker of the House to succeed John Boehner: "What's going to change" if everyone simply moves up a notch and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy becomes Speaker? Massie answers that question by endorsing principled limited government constitutional conservative Rep. Daniel Webster of Florida for Speaker.

Those allegedly conservative Republicans who vote for the “CRomnibus” will own not just Obama's unconstitutional amnesty, they will also own a host of Obama's other destructive policies. I urge CHQ readers to pick-up the phone (the toll free number is 1- 866-220-0044) and call Congress to demand your Representative and Senators vote “NO” on the CR – Omnibus spending plan.
Louie Gohmert exposed how John Boehner, Kevin McCarthy & Steve Scalise strengthened Obama’s executive amnesty with procedural trickery—and they did it all in the name of pushing a bill that they told R's would block Obama’s exec. amnesty.
When Kevin McCarthy and Chris Christie talk about “compromise” what they are really talking about is growing government at a slightly slower pace than it would grow if Obama had a Democratic majority on Capitol Hill. That is not what handed Republicans back the majority.
Boehner, McCarthy, and Scalise were re-elected to their posts. In the only contested leadership race, Rep. Luke Messer was elected as Repub. Policy Comm. chairman over Reps. Tom Reed and Rob Woodall. That's the No. 5 spot on Boehner’s leadership team.

Today, especially on "comprehensive immigration reform" and amnesty for illegal aliens, the Republican Party is a house, and a party, divided by the arrogance of some of its leaders and the only thing that can heal that divide is new leadership.
