We urge CHQ readers and friends to contact your Senators and Representatives today to tell them not to waste the Lame Duck. This is the last opportunity Republicans have to fund the Wall before radical Far-Left Democrats takeover the House and impose gridlock on President Trump’s conservative agenda.

The George H.W. Bush Obituary You Won’t Read In The New York Times (Part Two)

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
As the establishment media rushes to make the late President George H.W. Bush a saint of bipartisanship conservatives ought to remember the real George H.W. Bush and heed the political lessons available from an honest review of his record. (Read Part One here)

How The Late George H.W. Bush Killed The Border Wall

Ryan and McConnell are cynically using the lying-in-state and funeral arrangements for the late President to give air cover to their government by crisis strategy to avoid a fight over border wall funding and other Trump agenda items that will be DOA in next year’s Democrat controlled House of Representatives.

The George H.W. Bush Obituary You Won’t Read In The New York Times (Part One)

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Those who wax nostalgic for George H.W. Bush’s public decorum and old-fashioned Protestant rectitude want Americans to forget that behind the gentlemanly exterior was a politician whose policies were anything but conservative, and whose greatest political legacy was breaking the Reagan coalition and undoing many of Ronald Reagan’s hard-won victories.

Don’t Help Libertarians Hand Control Of Congress To Democrats Part 2

By Richard Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
In this crucial election, when control of the House and Senate hang in the balance, we urge our libertarian-leaning friends not to waste their votes on third-party Libertarian candidates who have no prayer of winning, but who, if they pull enough votes from Republicans, could destroy all the progress made in the past two years under President Trump.

Kornacki's Fractured Fairy Tale of the GOP

Craig Shirley, Real Clear Politics

In summary, this forgettable book has little to commend it. Like Coppins’ weak and deeply biased effort, “The Red and the Blue” should not be flung lightly but with great force. Kornacki is a run-of-the-mill liberal and has now written a run-of-the-mill book. He never even attempted to write or explore outside his tribe. Save your money, save your time, save your interest in real history. Any casual historian will tell you the day Alexander Hamilton took up the cause of centralized authority and the day Thomas Jefferson took up the cause of federalism was the birth of American tribalism.

Don’t Help Libertarians Hand Control Of Congress To Democrats Part 1

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
When Libertarians run their own third-party candidates, as they are certainly free to do, they all too often split the twenty-first century liberty coalition and hand victory to Big Government Democrats—as they did in Virginia’s 2013 gubernatorial election and the 2012 Montana Senate race.

Remembering Senator Paul Laxalt – One Of The Essential Men Of The Conservative Movement

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Many have rightly eulogized Senator Paul Laxalt as one of Ronald Reagan’s closest political confidants, but that does not properly credit Paul Laxalt’s essential contribution to the modern conservative movement.

It’s Time For President Trump To Go Full Andrew Jackson On Overreaching Judges

Whether President Jackson defied the Supreme Court has been hotly debated ever since Worcester v. Georgia but the point is that unlike subsequent presidents and congresses, Jackson was prepared to challenge usurping federal judges and use all the power and discretion the Constitution grants the executive to pursue his policy goals.

How Trump Could Be Like Reagan

Stephen Moore, Arthur B. Laffer and Steve Forbes, New York Times

By putting zero tariffs on the table, Mr. Trump will also be able to determine which nations are genuinely committed to freer trade and which prefer to keep their protectionist barriers in place. We’ve often reminded politicians that free trade is a pillar of prosperity and a win-win for trading partners. Just as no one ever thought Mr. Reagan would stem nuclear proliferation, if Mr. Trump aggressively pursues this policy, he could build a legacy as the president who expanded world commerce and economic freedom by ending trade barriers rather than erecting them.

Remembering Tom Ellis: Unsung Hero Of The Conservative Movement

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
North Carolina lawyer and political strategist Tom Ellis passed away last week at the age of 97. Ellis, whom many credit with recruiting Jesse Helms to run for the Senate, is in my view one of the two or three most important unsung heroes of the conservative movement.

Trump Heads To NATO Summit With America First Agenda

President Trump’s recognition that the United States cannot and should not continue to subsidize the quality of life for our allies is hardly a conspiracy theory, but an overdue recognition that the Reagan defense build-up was expended long ago, and if the Western alliance is to be maintained, then all its beneficiaries must pay their share.

Faith Whittlesey An Original Reaganite Remembered

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Ambassador Faith Ryan Whittlesey, an early supporter of Ronald Reagan’s 1980 presidential campaign and for many years a powerful voice in the conservative movement, will be remembered at a memorial service today, Wednesday, May 30, at 11 a.m. at St. Thomas Apostle Catholic Church, 2665 Woodley Rd. NW, Washington, D.C. 20008.

Trump Eyes Wide Open On North Korea

President Trump seems to share President Reagan’s genuine horror at the thought of nuclear war, a deeply held belief that drove Reagan to engage Soviet Premier Gorbachev in both diplomatic negotiations to reduce nuclear weapons and a strategic competition that eventually brought down the Soviet Union.

Part 3 of 3 Before There Was Facebook And Cambridge Analytica Conservatives Had The Viguerie Company

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Much of the Liberal outrage at Facebook has nothing to do with Zuckerberg’s questionable business model for monetizing its user’s data. It is not outrage over privacy, rather it is the same kind of outrage that they have directed at me and other conservatives over the years; it is outrage that conservatives used Facebook to defeat liberals at the local, state and national level.

Part 2 of 3 Before There Was Facebook And Cambridge Analytica Conservatives Had The Viguerie Company

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Every battle we fight, even if we lose, gives us the opportunity to educate voters on the issues, attract new people to the conservative - populist movement that won President Trump the Republican presidential nomination, and build new conservative organizations and leaders.

Larry Kudlow For White House Economic Advisor

Larry Kudlow’s personal relationship with President Trump, his credibility with conservatives and Republicans on and off Capitol Hill, and most importantly, his ability to channel President Trump instead of trying to impose his own ideas make him the ideal candidate for the job of Chairman of the National Economic Council – we strongly urge the President to select Mr. Kudlow for the position without delay.

Visionary Conservative Jeff Bell Remembered

Jeff Bell’s two most notable books, The Case for Polarized Politics and Populism and Elitism are must-read resources for anyone wishing to understand the conservative – populist politics that gave rise to the election of Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump. There could be no better memorial to Jeff Bell than to read his books and build upon his ideas.

Heritage Report Ranking Trump Above Reagan Again Exposes #NeverTrump Grifters

John Nolte, Breitbart

According to the Heritage Foundation, during his first year in office, Trump adopted nearly two-thirds (64 percent) of Heritage’s agenda. By comparison, Heritage says that former President Reagan enacted only 49 percent of its policy prescriptions. “There is so much noise in this town that I think it obscures the real work that’s being done,” Heritage president Kay Coles James told the New York Times. “This administration is doing quite well in terms of advancing a conservative agenda — clearly, quite well.”
