Scholarship Deadline For October 12 Conservative Double Your Donors Seminar Fast Approaching

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
America needs young conservatives to master the knowledge it takes to build organizations and campaigns for the next 50 years to defeat progressive forces. As the "Funding Father of the Conservative Movement," I want to pass on my knowledge to the next generation. You can help make that happen.

Change The Life Of A Young Conservative

By: Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
As a general rule, the left does a far better job of marketing and communicating their dangerous ideas and policies than we conservatives do marketing freedom and liberty.  I plan to change that with my October 12th seminar.

I Share My Secrets

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
If you are leading a conservative organization – or want to start one – I invite you to take this one-time opportunity to understand the new “Age of Trump” marketing environment we conservatives face, and save $500, by registering today for my October 12 direct mail/marketing seminar.

Could October 12 Decide The Future Of The Conservative Movement?

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
On October 12 I am holding my first (and maybe only) direct mail/marketing seminar. In my opinion, the next three years offer an unprecedented opportunity for conservative organizations to grow and I want to share my insights with as many conservatives as possible.

FedUp PAC Poll: Conservatives Say McConnell Must Step Down

More than 97% of self-identified conservatives said that McConnell needs to be replaced by “someone who will fulfill Republican campaign promises.” Only about 2% agreed with McConnell that President Trump is demonstrating “excessive expectations.”

Trump’s Tweets Awaken The Living Dead

When Jeb Bush, John Kasich and Lindsey Graham are the voices and faces of the Republican Party it reminds us of scenes from our favorite zombie movies.

Newton’s Third Law of Physics is Alive and Operating in the Political Arena

Our opponents are raising hundreds of millions of dollars and growing their organizations. The good news is, the voters and donors of Donald Trump's new conservative -- populist coalition are more engaged and outraged than ever. If there was ever a time to start or grow your conservative organization that time is now.

President Trump Orders A Real Look At Election Fraud

While voter fraud isn’t a uniquely Democrat problem – if you look hard enough you can find an example or two of Republicans engaged in voter fraud – defense of voter fraud is the unique province of the Democratic Party and the Left.

The Stupid Party Finally Gets Smart on the Court

Daniel J. Flynn, The American Spectator

The GOP learned, not just from Republican failures but from Democrat obstructionism, particularly regarding the conservative nominees of Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan. Trading Miers for Samuel Alito and Garland for Gorsuch looks a lot like the deals Red Auerbach once pulled on hayseed general managers throughout the NBA.

It’s Trump’s Party Now

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Tuesday’s speech established Trump as the man in charge. But how loyal to him and his program will be the “deep state,” which dominates this city that gave Trump only 4 percent of its votes and, paranoically, believes him to be an agent of Vladimir Putin? The Trump-Beltway wars have only just begun.

Democrats Turn The Clock Back To 1860

“There is no mistaking the fact that there is a concerted plan on foot among the enemies of the Republican Party, to bring it and the President elect into the disgraceful attitude of disowning the principles and policy to which they stood pledged before the country prior to the election. To accomplish this object, the most unpatriotic means are resorted to.”

Welcome to the Party of Trump

Stephen Moore, The American Spectator

What Donald Trump achieved on election night was to topple the legacies of three family dynasties all at once: the Clintons, the Bushes, and the Obamas. They were the troika of big losers in 2016. Trump didn’t topple the Reagan legacy of growth, optimism, and peace through strength. If the Age of Trump is to be a success, he will build on and modernize that legacy.

Trump Wins — Time to End the Republican Civil War

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Everyone has to eat a little humble pie, those of us on the winning side and those of us who saw Donald Trump as a threat to our country and our party. That said, one thing must be stipulated. Donald Trump did something absolutely extraordinary and unique in the history of American politics, maybe of all politics.  With practically every power source in our country aligned against him, including many of the leaders and thinkers of his own party, he won the presidency of the United States without ever having served in an office of any kind.

The Moral Depravity of the Anti-Trump Power Grab

Did this lewdest, crudest and most putrid behavior (not talk), ever drive the press and Democratic party elders to call on President Bill Clinton to resign? Never.

Attention #NeverTrump: To Preserve The First Amendment We Must Elect Donald Trump

#NeverTrumpers seem to forget that Clinton’s hostility toward the First Amendment could be put into practice by her appointments not only to the Supreme Court, but also to the Internal Revenue Service, Federal Communications Commission, and the Justice Department. The appointees would follow a heavily partisan course, prosecuting Clinton’s Republican and conservative opponents and making the #NeverTrumpers’ dream of a post-Trump rebuilding of the Republican Party with them in charge unlikely if not impossible.

Conservative Crackup Redux

Daniel J. Flynn, The American Spectator

The conservative movement largely failed as kingmaker in 2016 because the king they genuflected before in 2000 and 2004 so besmirched their philosophy. Voters decided that winning required a clean break rather than another try at the rebranding attempted in 2008 and 2012. Whether this reorientation works, only November knows. All Republican voters know before Labor Day is that it can’t work worse than in 2012 or 2008.

Will Paul Ryan’s Arrogance and Lies Defeat Him?

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.

The Elite Get A Well Deserved Bullying From Donald Trump

Country class voters know a bully when they see one, and they believe they are being bullied daily by an out-of-touch and insulated elite that holds them in contempt, they understand that the guy who punches your oppressor in the mouth isn’t a bully, he’s your champion. If Donald Trump is a bully, then he’s the much needed counter-bully the country class has been waiting for.

Up Close Report: The Donald Trump The Media Won’t Tell You About

In a Facebook post after Trump's Ashburn, VA rally, Loudoun Co. Republican Chairman Will Estrada tells us, "Be very skeptical of what the media is telling you about Donald Trump, because I saw it with my own eyes and it was something very different."

It looks like Donald Trump has made his choice for Vice President: Indiana's Governor Mike Pence.
