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.

5th Circuit Court of Appeals Issues Stay Of Scott Panetti Execution

Conservative Leaders Join to Block Jeb, Say He's Anti-Reagan

Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner

“I don’t know of any conservatives who are supporting him,” said Richard Viguerie, chairman of ConservativeHQ.com. “Jeb is a very good moderate Dem,” added Mark Levin. “He doesn't elicit excitement outside a small circle of wealthy corporatists & GOP Beltway operatives.”

Conservative Leaders Ask Gov. Perry to Spare Life of Severely Mentally Ill Man

UPDATE: A federal appeals court has postponed Scott Panetti's Dec. 3 execution to consider arguments by his lawyers that he's too mentally ill to be put to death, ccording to a 5:15 p.m. report by the Wall Street Journal.

“It is clear that [Panetti] has been suffering from severe mental illness since long before he committed the offense that landed him on death row. As conservatives, we must be on guard that such an extraordinary government sanction not be used against a person who is mentally incapable of rational thought. It would be immoral for the government to take this man’s life."

This Thanksgiving We Conservatives Are Like The Pilgrims

The pilgrims didn't just give thanks for what they had. They gave thanks for the freedom to pursue what they -- with God's help -- might yet achieve.

GOP Leaders' Hearts and Heads Not in Amnesty Fight

If Senator McConnell won’t use the votes he has in the Senate, and Speaker Boehner won’t use the majority he has in the House to stop Obama’s illegal and unconstitutional executive amnesty, then they should get out of the way and let conservatives organize the opposition and unite Republicans to use all the tools the Constitution gives them to rein-in a lawless President.

Schlafly: Obama Could Launch Another Civil War

Paul Bremmer, WND

Obama’s exec. amnesty represents a Fort Sumter-type moment, says Phyllis Schlafly. “With Pearl Harbor, we knew what was happening,” she said. But Fort Sumter, where the opening shots of the Civil War were fired, represented the beginning of a ruinous conflict.

The Bones and Sinews of the Conservative Movement are Barry Goldwater’s Legacy

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

Yesterday conservatives honored Barry Goldwater and celebrated the fact that, despite Goldwater's epic 1964 defeat, the members of the “Stop Goldwater” movement are largely forgotten, while the organizations founded by the people that Barry Goldwater inspired, including the Viguerie Company and ConservativeHQ.com, remain vigorous and growing.  

Conserv. Champ: Impeach Or ShutDown Gov't to Stop Amnesty

Greg Corombos, WND

House Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers' insistence on an omnibus spending bill plays right into the trap that President Obama and Harry Reid's defeated Senate Democrats have set for Republicans.

Priebus Joins Viguerie: No GOP Cave In On Obama’s Illegal Amnesty

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus has often been at odds with the conservative grassroots of the Republican Party, but in saying Obama's planned executive amnesty is “illegal” and “wrong,” and that Republicans ought to stop it “at all costs” he's on the same page with the grassroots and conservatives should welcome him to the fight.

What It Is Going To Take To Defeat Amnesty

Much as conservatives welcome the help RNC Chairman Reince Priebus' comments about amnesty seem to portend, the real muscle to defeat amnesty is going to have to come from the conservative grassroots – the same voters and activists who powered the Republican Party to victory in the 2014 wave.

RIP Representative Phil Crane

What's In A Name? Help Us Name The 2014 Wave

The NoBama Wave, the Anti-Amnesty Wave, the Bye-Bye Barack Election, the Fed Up Wave; the 2014 midterm Republican sweep needs a name that reflects its roots in a conservative outpouring against Obama's lawless and feckless six years in office. Please submit your idea for a name for the 2014 midterm wave for a chance to win a prize from our treasure chest of conservative books and other fun stuff.

A Party Divided Against Itself Cannot Stand

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

Today, especially on "comprehensive immigration reform" and amnesty for illegal aliens, the Republican Party is a house, and a party, divided by the arrogance of some of its leaders and the only thing that can heal that divide is new leadership.
