Ryan And McCarthy Playing Small Ball Against Islam’s Civilization Jihad

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.

Cruz Nails Obama Willful Blindness To Muslim Terrorism And Its Goals

As our friend Frank Gaffney put it so memorably after Senator Ted Cruz's stellar questioning of DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson, “The U.S. government is, indeed, ‘willfully blind’ about sharia-supremacism and the danger it poses to America.  Sen.

Presidential Horse Race 2016: When does opposing Donald Trump become a moral issue?

Q for #NeverTrump: Are you really willing to effectively extinguish the lives of millions of unborn Americans because your pride prevents you from backing a man like Donald Trump?

Another Reason To Back Trump: The US Chamber of Commerce Is Against Him

Muslim Terrorism In America: See Something, Say Nothing

Our friend Philip B. Haney yesterday testified before Senator Ted Cruz’s Subcommittee on Oversight, Agency Action, Federal Rights and Federal Courts to explain just how deeply the Obama administration has been penetrated by the Muslim Brotherhood. Haney is the author of the must-read book See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government's Submission to Jihad that we strongly recommend to CHQ readers.

Fact: Ryan And Obama Are Importing Muslim Terrorism

Out of 580 individuals convicted on terrorism or terrorism-related offenses between September 11, 2001 and December 31, 2014 at least 380 of them were foreign born, and there's only one man responsible for keeping this existential threat to your safety and quality of life alive, and that's Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. We urge you to call Speaker Ryan’s office, the Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044, tell Speaker Ryan that you will hold him personally responsible for the next jihadi attack on our country.

Rubio faces Trump-like challenger in primary

Ben Kamisar, The Hill

Only one person stands in the way of Marco Rubio emerging from August's Senate primary victorious--and on paper, he looks a lot like Donald Trump. Millionaire Carlos Beruff has endorsed Trump, he's espoused some of the same controversial beliefs, they both have allies in Florida Gov.
