Republican National Convention

Dinesh D'Souza’s New Movie ‘Trump Card’

Dinesh D'Souza's new movie “Trump Card'' (available on demand on October 9th) is a long overdue expose of the socialism, corruption, and gangsterism that now define the Democratic Party. Whether it is the creeping socialism of Joe Biden or the overt socialism of Bernie Sanders, the film reveals what is unique about modern socialism, who is behind it, why it’s evil and how we can work together with President Trump to stop it.

Trump Takes The Viguerie Path To Victory

Republicans never, ever win the presidency unless they nationalize the election by campaigning on a conservative agenda— drawing a sharp contrast between the Democrat worldview and the conservative worldview. And judging by this week’s convention, and President Trump’s acceptance speech, that contrast is going to be sharply drawn – there will be no pale pastels in the 2020 Trump campaign.

How To End The Republican National Convention With A Bang

Respecting religious liberty and protecting institutions from the encroachment of overweening secular authorities are central tenets of today’s Republican Party. Renewing that commitment with an Executive Order declaring religious assemblies to be “essential activities” would not only be the right thing to do in the face of religious discrimination from Democrat Governors and Mayors, it would send a message that would carry straight through to Election Day.

The Melania Factor

Democrats and their allies in Hollywood and the New York media don’t seem to get that by mocking Mrs. Trump and refusing her the fashion and style section coverage typically afforded the First Lady have only served to heighten her appeal to the Trump base and reinforce the idea that Democrats are too cruel to be trusted with the power of the federal government.

Maximo Alvarez And The Speech That Explains The 2020 Election

Most of the media seemed to miss the most important part of Mr. Maximo Alvarez's electrifying Republican national Convention speech, but what he said was not just a message; it is THE message conservatives must pound into the consciousness of establishment Republicans and others on the Center-Right who seem to view 2020 as just another election. There. Is. Nowhere. Left. To. Go.

Our Advice For The GOP Convention

As CHQ Chairman Richard A Viguerie pointed out in his book “TAKEOVER” Republicans never, ever win the presidency unless they nationalize the election by campaigning on a conservative agenda— drawing a sharp contrast between the Democrat worldview and the conservative worldview. Which means Republicans must make this week’s convention all about the Democrats’ agenda, not about Joe Biden’s lack of mental acuity and Kamala Harris’s lack of personality and principles.

Ted Cruz Defends Decision Not To Endorse Trump: What Do You Think?

At some point Ted Cruz’s feud with Donald Trump and the insults traded between candidates during the Primary are not our problem. What is our problem, however, is living in an America governed by Hillary Clinton. Click here to take our CHQ poll and tell us what you think: Did Ted Cruz commit political suicide by refusing to endorse Donald Trump?

Melania Trump: Winner

Erick Erickson, The Resurgent

Donald Trump actually did a great entrance to introduce his wife. She came on stage and was stunning. But it was not just that she is an objectively gorgeous lady, she was proudly American. She was not ashamed of where she came from. She was not ashamed of her family. She was not ashamed of her native country. But she was proud to be American. She was proud to be on that stage. It was all so very refreshing.

The Melania And Rudy Show Built The Trump Brand

Trump’s goal, as we see it, was to build and reinforce his brand, as much through non-verbal as through verbal communications. By keeping establishment Republicans like Paul Ryan, that millions of Americans hate, off the stage, and by putting Mrs. Trump, the very embodiment of the Trump brand, plus a highly targeted group of political outsiders on the stage, Trump went far in accomplish that goal.

Party Pushes for Unity at Convention

Emily Goodin and James Arkin, Real Clear Politics

Party unity is the main item on the agenda for Republicans as their national convention begins here Monday. But whether the GOP can unify behind its divisive presidential nominee remains to be seen.

Ted Cruz's convention speech should emulate Reagan's in 1976

streiff, RedState

If Ted Cruz sulks in his tent during this campaign, by 2020 many will have forgotten about him. If he gives a speech that overshadows Trump he will create a reputation that will only grow over the next four years.

GOP not in partying mood in Cleveland

Alexander Bolton, The Hill

Republicans won’t be in a partying mood when they gather in Cleveland next week to nominate Donald Trump for president. GOP aides and lobbyists say there has been a big drop-off in invitations, compared with past presidential conventions, with many establishment Republicans and corporations shunning the event.

Where Not To Eat In Cleveland

Even though Cleveland Chef Michael Symon has millions of dollars of potential GOP Convention bookings at his restaurants, he says Donald Trump is not welcome in any of his establishments. Symon's biting the hand that feeds him leads us to ask why Republicans would wish to support their political enemy and patronize one of Michael Symon’s restaurants when they visit Cleveland for their Convention?

Conservatives: We Need To Fight And Win The Election We Have

Some of our conservative friends can’t seem to stop wishing for the election they want, instead of concentrating on winning the election they have. However, despite this lack of ability to focus on winning, the tools to win are actually there, in a way they haven’t been available to Republicans in the past several presidential election cycles.

The Carly Factor

Ted Cruz's decision to make Carly Fiorina his running mate would seem to preclude a grand populist - conservative alliance to break the Washington Cartel. Now the Republican National Convention will be a three army battle in which Trump’s populists, Cruz’s movement conservatives and the dark forces of the Republican establishment all vie against each other for dominance and the Republican nomination for president, and at this point no one can predict which way the battle will turn.

Trump vs Cruz Battle Must Not Break the Conservative Movement

The natural beneficiaries of the current bloodletting between the conservative and populist wings of the anti-establishment coalition are the Republican establishment, Hillary Clinton and the Far-Left who seek to maintain and expand their power by undermining constitutional liberty and continuing the crony economic policies that have devastated America’s country class for two decades. #NeverHillary #NeverRyan

Morton Blackwell for Virginia Republican National Committeeman

At what could be a contentious open Republican National Convention, where no candidate has a majority of the delegates when the convention opens, Morton Blackwell’s expertise on the Rules of the Republican Party, his record of working to empower the grassroots and his commitment to fairness and civility will be a much needed anchor to assure that Republicans leave their National Convention united and ready to defeat Hillary Clinton and the Democrats.

GOP nears the breaking point

Jesse Byrnes, The Hill

The presidential primary has been a wrenching experience for the GOP so far — and it’s about to get even worse. Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and John Kasich have all backed away from their pledge to support the party's eventual nominee, foreshadowing a fight at the convention and beyond that could cleave the GOP into warring factions.

Trump and Cruz Getting Suckered into Destroying Each Other

The “War on the Wives” between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, that has grown increasingly cruel over the past week, should have conservatives and their populist allies asking “Cui bono?” an old Latin legal term meaning “Who benefits?” from the hostility that now threatens the hoped-for anti-establishment alliance at the Republican National Convention.

We Urge Cruz and Trump Delegates to Build an Outsider Alliance for the GOP Convention

We urge the Cruz and Trump delegates in other states to follow the lead of Tennessee's Joe Carr, state Senator Mae Beavers and Steve Gill and work together to make sure that, while they follow their principles and work to nominate their candidate, the Republican political class does not steal the nomination and succeed in forcing another content-free candidate and campaign down the throats of rebellious grassroots conservatives.
