WND Staff

Conservative powerhouse Richard Viguerie (CHQ's chairman) who's credited for organizing Ronald Reagan’s huge victory in 1980 and the founding of multiple conservative organizations is calling for challenges to the elected GOP officials who may not be fully in line with the party’s roots. 

Schooling Jonah Goldberg

One of the most damaging political developments of the Reagan years was the silence of most conservatives, Democrats have exhibited no such compunction in criticizing Barack Obama. Movement conservatives should never hesitate to speak out when our friends in government show any inclination to give way on conservative principles.

Sean Hannity Is Wrong About A Third Party

To win the elections necessary to govern America according to conservative principles there’s only one way to go; recruit the candidates and do the work necessary to obtain the Republican nomination for conservatives. Just as importantly, conservatives must get involved in the Republican Party at the precinct level, run for Party office and takeover the GOP at the local, state and national levels.

What's Wrong W/ The Repub Right?

W. James Antle III, American Conservative

If conservatives won’t start taking results more seriously, you can bet the rest of the GOP soon will. In order to achieve victory, the late conservative activist Howard Phillips used to say, “first we must seek it.” Even before that, we must define it—and perhaps more ambitiously than we have done in the past.

“No Waiver” America Wants Republicans to Defund ObamaCare

Americans outside the Washington Beltway, who don’t get waivers from ObamaCare or enjoy the privileged status of Washington's elite, want ObamaCare defunded and don't fear a partial government shutdwn or "slimdown" if that's what it takes.

Will Obamacare Be The New Panama Canal for Conservatives?

Conservatives must continue to think strategically and look beyond today’s news cycle at what is really at stake in the Obamacare battle. The Panama Canal Treaty battle grew the New Right movement in the 1970s and the fight over defunding Obamacare is growing the limited government, constitutional conservative movement today.

Republicans, Ready for Battle!

Patrick J. Buchanan, Human Events

The Republican war over whether to bow to the seemingly inevitable and fund Obamacare is a Panama Canal issue. How one votes here may decisively affect one’s career. Cruz is right, just as Reagan was right.

In a curious twist of history, what allowed environmental extremists to get their way after Reagan was the economic recovery for which he was responsible. 

Cruz: The New Reagan?

Thomas Lifson, American Thinker

Remember, Reagan went over the heads of political opponents to the people, just as Cruz is doing with defunding Obamacare, and establishment Republicans viciously attacked him. 

House GOP: Reagans or Fords?

Jeffrey Lord, American Spectator

House GOP leaders' push to use trick votes to weaken OCare makes them look like the Gerald-Ford-estab.-R's that Reagan talked about in '76 as having made of the party a “fraternal order” when it must be “something where people are bound together by a shared philosophy.”

Scholars Say “The Butler” Gets Reagan Wrong on Race

We agree with Craig Shirley, Kiron K. Skinner, Steven F. Hayward and Paul Kengor – films like “The Butler” can be good opportunities for a healthy consideration of our troubled racial history, but not if they persist with inaccurate portrayals of President Reagan's record and personal views.
