Common Core Curriculum Twists The Facts

Common Core lesson plans attack Ronald Reagan, list Abraham Lincoln's religion as 'liberal,' and suggest the 2000 election of George W. Bush was "unfair."

Return of the Reagan Revolution

Jeffrey Lord, American Spectator

Revolution is in the GOP air. As Jenny Beth Martin can verify, millions are ready to back up that revolution with their money and time. Their political targets are Repubs. who, in one way or another, have signed on to the “cult of the state.”

DeMint Blasts Obama Over Exec. Orders

Amy Payne, Heritage Foundation Blog

"Obama and his apologists insist that ruling through executive action is the only option because we live in an exceptionally partisan age. Tell that to Ronald Reagan who worked with a Congress led by liberal Democrats, or Bill Clinton, who found ways to work with a Congress that had impeached him," said Jim DeMint.

Has the GOP Become the Party of Christie?

Jeffrey Lord, American Spectator

If the GOP is to be the party of Bridget Kelly, Brad Dayspring, the NRSC and Chris Christie — a party that is a fraternal order of consensus politicians and their power grasping staff — the GOP will not only not win an election they should win. They will deserve to lose. Again.

Establishment GOP Leaders Take The 30 Pieces Of Silver To Pass Amnesty

The passive, weak-kneed, and principle-free response of the GOP establishment to demands for amnesty for illegal aliens is to be expected of a Party whose leading establishment figures, like Haley Barbour, readily take the 30 pieces of silver from Big Business, rather than fight for American workers, the rule of law and American exceptionalism.

Phil Robertson Controversy Reveals The Left’s Kill Switch on Dissent

We think that there’s a pattern developing here – and the implementation of a “cultural kill switch” through which any opinion outside those of the secular liberal elite is automatically deleted from the supposedly free and unfiltered internet.

The Air Boehner Tax

Jeffrey Lord, American Spectator

Boehner, another Bob Dole neo-statist, is the new tax collector for the welfare state. His latest gift to the American people is a 124% tax increase on air travel — can aptly be called The Air Boehner Tax.

Could There Be a McClintock versus Ryan Showdown in 2016?

Someone needs to offer the principled limited government constitutional alternative to the Republican establishment on spending. Starting a “draft Tom McClintock” committee may be what is needed, because McClintock is saying what few others will – America can’t afford many more mistakes like those the Republican establishment made on the Ryan spending deal.

CHQ Chairman Richard Viguerie Joins Conservative Leaders Opposed to Spending Deal

Gingrich: Reagan Committed to Ending Apartheid

Lisa Barron, Newmax

Reagan vetoed a bill passing S. African sanctions, only to have Congress override the veto. But Gingrich said, "Reagan's critics are wrong to say his opposition to economic sanctions made him pro-apartheid. He disagreed with our group of activist Repubs. in Congress over tactics, not over the aim of ending the institution.

Levin:Conservatives Did More for S. Africa Than Obama

Real Clear Politics Staff

"When Obama leaves office, there won't be tens of millions of people newly freed from behind the Iron Curtain, or under the thumb of some third world dictator, as they were under Reagan and Thatcher.

The Stark Contrast Between Barack Obama and Nelson Mandela

Conservative writer Ben Hart says he truly loved Nelson Mandela. Even though Mandela was a socialist, Hart puts him on the level of Mother Teresa and George Washington in terms of being a true force for good in the world. Contrast that with Barack Obama. Read Hart's take on Mandela and comment inside.

Viguerie Plots Way Forward for Virginia Tea Party

Headlining the 4th annual Tea Party Action Conference, CHQ Chairman Richard A. Viguerie picked-up the conference theme "Changing the Rules of the Game" to exhort the 125+ attendees that “it’s the primaries stupid” and challenge them to take over the Republican Party as the only realistic means of advancing the cause of conservative governance. Watch his speech here.

The Betrayal of Ken Cuccinelli

The betrayal of Ken Cuccinelli by the Republican establishment and many of Virginia’s nominally Republican business community leaders is reflective of the precedent the Republican establishment set in their treatment of Barry Goldwater. When an establishment Republican gains a nomination for office the Republican leadership demands that conservatives close ranks with establishment Republicans and support the nominee. However, when a conservative gains a nomination, establishment Republicans are, without consequence, free to criticize the nominee and to do everything they can to undercut the conservative’s campaign.

Reagan, O'Neill, & Someone Named Chris

Chris Matthews is no historian, but he pretends to play one. Reagan biographer and conservative PR wiz Craig Shirley gives a scathing critique (and sets little white lies straight) of Chris Matthews new book, "Tip and The Gipper." Shirley writes that "...because Matthews smears anyone he disagrees with, it should be seen for what it is: a political polemic meant to address a current political problem."
