Conclusion: Should Conservatives Support Trump If He Wins The GOP Nomination?

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman and George Rasley, Editor, CHQ
The idea that movement conservatives should join forces with the Republican establishment to deny Donald Trump the nomination would be an unforgivable betrayal, perpetuate the near-treasonous sellout of our country, and be a disaster for the conservative movement. We urge Trump and Cruz delegates to form an alliance and to stand together to ensure that the Republican National Convention nominates a conservative – populist ticket.

Part 3: What Should Conservatives Do if Trump Wins the Republican Nomination?

The idea that Ted Cruz and his movement conservative supporters should join forces with the establishment Republican perpetrators of what has become a near-treasonous sellout of our country would prove to be a disaster for the conservative movement and provide no guarantee of a conservative victory in November.

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.

Kevin D. Williamson and National Review Are Elitist Scum

While movement conservatives would like to blame the Republican establishment for the rise of Donald Trump and the attendant political problems he has created for the national Republican Party, as our friend Rick Manning, President of Americans for Limited Government, pointed out in a recent article for Breitbart, those out-of-touch Ivory Tower “establishment conservatives,” such as the writers and editors at National Review, bear just as much responsibility for Trump’s rise.

Marco Rubio = Jeb Bush without the good manners

If you take Jeb Bush’s policies and record on spending, education and amnesty for illegal aliens and add-in John McCain’s policies and record on amnesty for illegal aliens, bringing Muslims to America and engaging in endless and inconclusive adventures in the Middle East, and then add a dash of support for the Obama and Hillary Clinton disasters in Libya and Syria, plus a strong dose of their views on amnesty and funding left-wing racist organizations, you don’t get a limited government constitutional conservative – what you get is Marco Rubio – Jeb Bush, without the integrity and good manners.

In Celebration Of Ted Cruz’s Tough Tactics In Iowa

Much as the Iowa losers would like to make it otherwise, Hillary Clinton is going to run a smart, technologically savvy, in the moment, ruthless wedge-issue-driven campaign and trying to defeat the Clinton machine using the rules of etiquette as taught at a finishing school for little girls is a sure formula for defeat.

It’s Time To Call BS on Texas GOP Rep. John Culberson

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?"

John Kasich: The GOP Establishment’s Spare Prince

The job of the establishment’s “spare prince” in this year’s campaign is to present himself as a more palatable version of Jeb Bush to those who might be skeptical of electing another Bush or to jump in and save the establishment’s hold on the throne should Bush’s campaign falter as it appears to be doing. And John Kasich is a perfect “spare” for the Republican establishment.

Trump and Cruz Voters Hold the Key to Electing a Conservative Congress

What the Republican establishment and its U.S. Chamber of Commerce allies fear beyond anything else, including the election of Hillary Clinton as President, is that those voters who support Donald Trump and Ted Cruz can be welded into a cohesive grassroots populist conservative army committed to breaking what Ted Cruz calls the “Washington cartel.”

Why Trump Is Still Leading And Ted Cruz Rose After The Fox Debate

What the establishment media doesn’t seem to get and the Republican establishment fears beyond anything else, including the election of Hillary Clinton as President, is that those voters who support Donald Trump and Ted Cruz understand that the Republican establishment is the problem.

Manners Before Truth: The Usual RINOs Pile on Ted Cruz

Daniel Davis, Townhall

Sen. Ted Cruz's public accusation that Mitch McConnell lied to fellow Senators has not gone over well among the GOP leadership. Establishment Republicans are predictably going after the Texas Senator and rebuking him for violating Senate etiquette.

Trump’s Rise and the Tea Party: Rooted in the Failed Leadership of the GOP

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Readers asked me to expand on my Friday column about the rise of Donald Trump as a contender for the Republican nomination for President. In my view Donald Trump is just the latest in a long line of message carriers who have spoken for grassroots Americans fed-up with the duplicity and betrayals of the Republican establishment and Washington’s ruling class. One of the great ironies of the 2016 Republican presidential campaign may very well be that the establishment Republican political class will finally receive their comeuppance at the hands of Donald Trump, the most unlikely of populist conservatives.

Rush: Today's GOP Full of Moderates

Melissa Clyne, Newsmax

"There are a lot of mainstream Repub. voters who embody the same fear that GOP leaders do. 'We can't make the Hispanics mad!' A lot of mainstream Repub. voters are embarrassed by SPalin. Many don’t care about reducing the size of gov't. The GOP estab. is OK with that because they want to run it."

Will GOP Leaders Squander the Opportunity?

John Kass, Townhall

Republicans have Obama on the Democrats on the ropes, but what happens if they actually win? The GOP establishment has yet to articulate a vision of the future. What do the Republicans stand for, really? Where are they going? And where do they want to take the country?

Ted Cruz on 2016: Who is Standing Up and Leading?

Matthew Boyle, Breitbart

The Texas Senator is on the road trying to turn out conservatives in November, but he says the litmus test for GOP voters in the presidential primaries should be whether a given candidate has led on the battlefield of ideas against the left and political establishment as a whole.

Conservatives Be of Good Cheer - We're Winning

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

The leadership that Americans need and are looking for doesn’t come from Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Reince Priebus, or any of the Republican establishment. The leadership comes from each of us in the conservative movement, our organizations, our members. We are the driving force to Save America and we are winning!

Conservatives Are the Driving Force to Save America

Boehner: I'm Obama's Best Friend

Matthew Boyle, Breitbart

Speaker John Boehner put comedienne Joy Behar in a playful headlock while in the Hamptons campaigning for Repub. Lee Zeldin, telling the liberal former co-host of The View, “I am Obama’s best friend," after she told him to stop obstructing Obama.

Any Republican who subsequently votes in Jan. against the nominee chosen by the GOP-E in Nov. will be stripped of all committee assignments. If the rule change passes, all Republicans who vote against Boehner will be stripped of all their committee assignments.

How Can GOP Senate Majority Prospects Be Trending In The Wrong Direction?

For a year and a half, Republicans in Washington, abetted by their business allies, assailed conservatives privately and in the press. The message the party and its consultants sent since the 2012 elections was "conservatives need not apply." Unfortunately, the Republican establishment may get their wish.
