Viguerie, Trump, Data and the GOP

Joshua Darr,

In 1965 Richard Viguerie went to the clerk of the House of Representatives and copied (by hand) the names of donors who gave Goldwater $50 or more, forming the basis for his mailing list. Viguerie used this data to send 70 million letters per year and 1 billion pieces of conservative direct mail between 1974 and 1980, when conservative Ronald Reagan was elected president.

The Media Responds to Viguerie Endorsement of Cruz

CHQ Chairman Richard Viguerie’s endorsement of Ted Cruz for President set in motion a wave of media coverage in advance of the important CNN national security debate and, most importantly, has helped to coalesce the conservative movement and limited government constitutional conservatives behind the Senator from Texas.

Ted Cruz Thanks Viguerie For Endorsement Raises Stakes in 2016 Campaign

Senator Ted Cruz: "Richard Viguerie is a hero of the conservative movement… I couldn't be prouder to have his support, which should send a strong message to conservatives nationwide that our campaign is coalescing the movement. From libertarians to Tea Partiers to social and national security conservatives, people are getting behind our campaign because it is time to restore constitutional principles and reignite the promise of this great nation."

Viguerie to NewsMax: Grassroots “White-Hot” Over Lack Of Leadership In GOP

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.

Jeb Bush Has No Claim On Reagan’s Legacy

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
George H.W. Bush, ran as a pro-choice moderate in the 1980 Republican primaries – he wanted nothing to do with the social and economic conservative positions Reagan espoused. Almost by default Bush became Reagan’s runningmate, but he never adopted Reagan’s limited government goals and throughout the Reagan presidency he was never trusted by conservatives.

It’s Not About Trump – It’s About The Failures Of The Republican Establishment

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
What the Republican establishment, and the Washington political elite in general can’t seem to grasp is Trump’s support is coming from the same place in American politics that the 2009 Tea Party movement came from -- the failure of the Republican establishment to stand for its own principles.

The Bush Massacre of the Reaganites

Twenty-six years ago this week any prospect of institutionalizing Reaganism as the governing principle of the Republican Party and America was abruptly ended when George H.W. Bush conducted a well-planned purge to replace conservatives (be they Bush supporters or not) with establishment Republicans.

Thank Bobby Jindal: America Needs The Truth About Muslim Colonization Zones

Whatever you call them, radical Muslim "colonization zones" do exist throughout Europe and whether they should be referred to as “no go zones” or “semi-autonomous areas” is irrelevant to Gov Bobby Jindal’s larger and most important truth telling – Muslim colonization is coming to America. SIGN OUR THANK-YOU LETTER TO BOBBY JINDAL FOR SPREADING TRUTH ABOUT RADICAL ISLAM.

Remembering Marty Anderson

Ronald Reagan surrounded himself with recognized conservatives; men like Nevada Senator Paul Laxalt, Lyn Nofziger, Dick Allen, Ed Meese, Jeff Bell, Judge William Clark and Marty Anderson weren’t window dressing like Warren Buffet is to Barack Obama – they were who Ronald Reagan was.

Viguerie, Conservative Leaders Release “Citizens Mandate” To Congress

A broad coalition of conservative activists, thinkers, leaders and organizations have come together to put on paper specific policy proposals for the new Republican majority on a wide range of economic, social and national security issues: the "CITIZENS MANDATE FROM THE NOVEMBER 2014 ELECTION.” SIGN THE PETITION TO STOP OBAMA'S LIBERAL POLICIES!

Viguerie’s Foolproof Test: Is Jeb Bush A Conservative?

Who you walk with tells me a lot about who you are. Despite all of Jeb Bush’s rhetoric about “the transformative power of conservative ideas,” Jeb Bush is the “great white hope” of the Republican establishment. SIGN THE PETITION TELLING JEB BUSH THAT YOU DON'T SUPPORT HIS RUN FOR PRESIDENT.

Please Lord, No More Bushes For President

A Jeb Bush nomination for president would ensure that the Republican establishment stays in power for at least another decade, and it would also ensure that, no matter if Jeb or the Democrat wins, Big Government will prevail.

Why We Must (Gently) Disagree With Our Friend Mark Levin

Ronald Reagan’s answer to those, including some of his good political supporters, who wanted him to head a new conservative party, was to tell them “they were out of their minds.” As Reagan saw it then (and he was right) the bulk of conservative voters in America are Republicans—and they won’t desert the Republican Party for a third party.

TEAParty Ready to Primary GOP Who Backed Obama-Boehner CRomnibus

Michael Patrick Leahy, Breitbart

Remembering which GOP Reps voted for the bill in '16 is exactly what conservative icon Richard Viguerie had in mind when he tweeted: "target list for '16 Repub. primaries found in this roll call YES vote = Primary challenge." TP activists already appear up to undertaking the challenge.

Conservatives: Let's Primary Every GOP Boneless Wonder Who Votes For The CRomnibus

Can you imagine a Republican Member of Congress who voted for a standalone bill to give your Social Security money to an illegal alien surviving the next Republican Primary election? Neither can I.

Rand Paul: I Won’t Vote For a Spending Bill That Funds Amnesty

Senator Rand Paul has announced he will be voting against the establishment Republican House leadership’s spending plan, this "abomination" of a bill as he called it, and is urging all Republicans to oppose it.

Memo To House Republicans: If You Fund It You Own It

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

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.

Should We Buy Speaker Boehner Some Balls?

Speaker Boehner is not the spineless wimp some commentators make him out to be. Boehner has actually shown plenty of masculine fortitude and has faced down opponents on numerous occasions – the problem is those opponents are always conservatives, not President Obama and the Democrats.
