Will Paul Ryan’s Arrogance and Lies Defeat Him?

Whether Paul Ryan is defeated is not so much a measure of Paul Nehlen’s prowess as a campaigner – although he’s mounted a great campaign – it is more a measure of how tolerant of Paul Ryan’s arrogance and lies the good people of Wisconsin 1 prove to be.

Larry Craig: A Case for Donald Trump - Muslim Immigration

CHQ reader and author Larry A. Craig says bringing Muslims into our country could be the single worst mistake in our nation’s history. Our nation will bend to their will, first through polite accommodation, then through demands for equality and fairness, and then frankly you will be afraid not to give them everything they want because, frankly, you will be afraid of what will happen if you don’t. Bad laws can be undone.  Bad taxes and bad trade policies can be undone.  Bad immigration cannot. Donald Trump is the only candidate for president who has talked about stopping, even if only temporarily, Muslim immigration to America.

Larry Craig: A Case for Donald Trump, Part 2

Larry Craig says our elected officials seem to have forgotten the purpose of government in our country.  One thing that it is not for is for the government to do something and then tell the American people to like it.  Our government officials and elected representatives need to have a copy of the beginning of our Constitution printed out and mounted on their desks.  It provides a 6-point checklist for everything they do, and allowing unlimited immigration is contrary to almost every point.

Larry Craig: A Case for Donald Trump, Part 1

Larry Craig says, "For me there are five issues that are the iceberg sinking the ship.  And if the ship sinks, nothing else is going to matter.  In each case, Donald Trump is either the only one who understands the problem, has the right solution to fix the problem, or is the only one I believe will actually do what is needed to fix the problem."

Paul Nehlen: Speaker Ryan Gets A Conservative Challenger

Conservative businessman Paul Nehlen has confirmed he will challenge Paul Ryan for the Wisconsin District 1 seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Marco Rubio’s Cynical Ploy on the Trans-Pacific Partnership

Marco Rubio has made a career out of talking a good game on the conservative agenda and then giving a charming puppy dog smile as he abandons that agenda and throws his support to Big Government anti-constitutional, anti-conservative policies.  He did it as a member of the Gang of Eight on amnesty, and he’s doing it once again as he “distances himself” from the TPP and pretends to mull the pros and cons of a bill that will destroy the quality of life for millions of American families.

Senator Jeff Sessions is Right: Take TPP Off The Fast Track

Petition to Congressional Leadership: Take TPA Off the Fast Track

To: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan
 

Senator Jeff Sessions is right: There’s too much corporate welfare, too much cronyism and corrupt dealmaking, by the Washington cartel in the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Obama Liberal Says Trans-Pacific Partnership Is a Disaster

Ian Fletcher, Huffington Post

If the purely trade aspects weren't bad enough, the TPP is also a profoundly anti-democratic agreement which signs away our right to govern our own economy. Despite being nominally a "trade" agreement, it contains provisions which interfere with areas well beyond the bounds of trade.

RAND: TPA KEEPS CONGRESS FROM AMENDING AGREEMENTS THAT AREN’T ‘COMPLETE’

Ian Hanchett, Breitbart

Kentucky Senator and GOP presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) argued that TPA is giving the president power on trade bills, some of which he says seem like “more of an outline of the bill” on Tuesday’s broadcast of “The Kuhner Report” on Boston’s WRKO. Rand, before the vote took place, stated, “I’ve been consistently against TPA and have voted against it from the beginning. I think that giving more authority to the president is precisely what we don’t need to be doing."

GOP moves Obama's trade agenda past key Senate hurdle

Ted Barrett and Athena Jones, CNN

The President's trade agenda scored a major victory Tuesday when the GOP-controlled Senate voted to advance a bill to allow "fast-track" approval of large international trade bills.

Establishment GOP Betrays Country Class Again; Primaries Are The Cure

From the Republican leadership’s devious ploy to fund Obama’s executive amnesty through the “CRomnibus,” to their refusal to defund Obamacare or executive amnesty, to their treasonous adoption of the legislation to give Obama a free hand to abandon U.S. opposition to Iran’s nuclear weapons program, and now their phony “free trade” argument in favor of a bill almost none of them read, the Capitol Hill Republican establishment has betrayed the principles – and the voters – that handed them back the majority in 2014.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal faces big Senate vote today

The Week

The Senate is holding a crucial procedural vote on granting President Obama fast-track trade authority to negotiate the Trans-Pacific Partnership pact with 11 other Pacific Rim nations. If 60 Senators vote in favor of the bill, it will almost certainly pass in the Senate on Wednesday, sending it to Obama's desk.

TED CRUZ: OBAMATRADE ENMESHED IN CORRUPT, BACKROOM DEALINGS

In an exclusive column on Breitbart, Senator Ted Cruz outlined the sleazy backroom deals, cronyism, corporate welfare and lies that have turned the current trade package into an attack on American workers and sovereignty, and away from the "free trade" traditionally favored by conservatives. Cruz says as things stand now he will have no choice but to vote "NO" on a bill that is of the lobbyist, by the lobbyist, and for the lobbyist – and at the expense of the taxpayers.

Betraying Middle America in trade fight

Charles Lane, The Washington Post

The fast track fight represents something between a do-or-die test of the unions’ residual clout and a golden opportunity for them to unify by exploiting a perennial hot-button issue. The prize is nothing less than power over the post-Obama Democratic Party.

Payback: Boehner hits back at GOP defectors on trade vote

Scott Wong and Cristina Marcos, The Hill

House GOP leaders booted three conservative members off the whip team for voting against a procedural rule last week that structured how a trade package was brought to the floor. Reps. Cynthia Lummis (Wyo.), Steve Pearce (N.M.) and Trent Franks (Ariz.) on Monday were booted-off the GOP’s vote-counting operation and more retribution against conservatives may be on the way.

FLASH: TPA Goes Down -- For Now -- As Trade Bill Fails In The House

President Obama and his estblishment Republican allies suffered a major defeat to his secret Pacific Rim trade initiative Friday as House Democrats and populist conservatives joined forces to derail a key presidential priority and blocked the House from advancing — for now — the administration’s trade agenda. Republican leaders, who had backed the president’s trade initiative, pleaded with their conservative colleagues to support the deal to no avail. However, the victory is only temporary as leaders vowed to bring Trade Promotion Authority and its companion Trade Adjustment Assistance welfare bill back on Tuesday.

Make-or-break vote on Obama trade push

Chad Pergram, Fox News

TPA, which would give the president the ability to "fast-track" future trade deals, is one of two bills due up in the House on Friday. And it’s anybody’s guess if the bills will pass. There is much gamesmanship underway on Capitol Hill as lawmakers try to leverage passage or defeat of the trade legislation.

Paul Ryan: Now the Ugly Face of the GOP Establishment

Those conservatives who saw Paul Ryan and his fellow “young guns” as the vanguard of a new conservative House might profit from recalling the ending of George Orwell’s Animal Farm; “The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.” In his arrogant dismissal of conservative populist concerns about Obama’s secret trade deal, and especially in his angry advocacy of establishment Republican corporatism that would continue the destruction of the aspirations of America’s working families, the transformation of Paul Ryan seems complete. 

Conservative Mike Flynn Earns Rep. Steve King Endorsement – Opposes TPA and TPP

“This is a rare chance for Illinoisans to elect a full spectrum Constitutional conservative to the House who will stand strong on principle,” said Rep. Steve King. “Mike will challenge anyone, including party leadership, if they are wrong on the issues. I hope Illinois voters of the 18th District will send a clear message to Washington by nominating Mike Flynn."
