In Texas, Encouraging Signs for Republicans

Josh Kraushaar, National Journal

Sen Ted Cruz’s early pugnacious strategy for his reelection campaign hints that Texas isn’t changing as much as optimistic Democrats believe. Despite energized Democratic turnout in the state’s primaries, Republicans also saw a healthy uptick in turnout compared to 2014 and maintained their sizable partisan advantage.

Texas Retirements May Bring New Conservative Stars To Congress

If Texas elects to Congress a slate of new conservative leaders it will be in no small measure due to the efforts of conservative Senator Ted Cruz. Cruz, facing his own reelection campaign this year, has still found time to make endorsements and campaign for candidates in at least four hotly contested Texas GOP Congressional primaries.

Centerism = Total Catastrophe

Update: President Trump endorses House Goodlatte bill, dismisses Senate remaining immigration proposals.  Much as the establishment media and open borders Republicans on Capitol Hill would like to present the Schumer-Rounds-Collins bill as a “centerist” proposal, there’s nothing “centerist” about granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens and who knows how many thousands of illegal bordered crossers who would arrive between now and June 30, 2018.

On Immigration The “Do Nothing Senate” Should Do Nothing

On immigration the Senate should do what it does best; nothing. If Congress does nothing the law stays as it is, illegal aliens get arrested and deported, the quality of life of American workers and their families is protected, and America protects itself from a future of One Party rule. Now, that’s what we call win – win.

I wanted Ted Cruz to be President, but Donald Trump is working

Roger Kimball, The Spectator (UK)

I was not always a fan. For most of the 2016 campaign, I supported Ted Cruz, a choice that many thought only marginally less bad than Mr Trump. You may not like President Trump’s taste in ties or steak, his tweets or his curious rhetoric. But fair-minded observers should find a lot to like in the results of his pragmatic, non-ideological approach to the nation’s — and the world’s — security and prosperity.

Trump Shoots Down McCain Amnesty Bill

Speaker Ryan’s comments that the House would only take up a bill that President Trump supports puts to rest (at least for the moment) conservative concerns that the open-borders oriented Ryan might try to force through an amnesty bill.  Trump’s rejection of the McCain – Coons amnesty plan puts the pressure back on the Republican Senate to pass a bill that meets the President’s requirements.

The Most Important Thing Trump Said That No One Is Talking About

There was one very important “this changes everything” moment in President Trump’s State of the Union message that no one is talking about – the President’s announcement that he has signed an Executive Order on Protecting America Through Lawful Detention of Terrorists.

CHQ and Ear to the Ground Survey Reveals Trump Supporters Will Not Support President On Amnesty

Trump supporters couldn’t be clearer: 71% of his base they will no longer support the President if amnesty is included in immigration reform. However, they also said they are confident President Trump will follow-through on his campaign promises regarding immigration.

The Elephant In The Room Last Night

There were many things conservatives could applaud in last night’s State of the Union address, but the President’s eloquent paean to the economic promise of America was largely drowned-out by opposition to the notion of giving a path to citizenship to 1.8 million illegal aliens.

GOP Establishment Risking Senate Majority By Continuing To Oppose Judge Moore

With less than three weeks to go until the Dec 12 Alabama Special Election the GOP establishment continues to entertain the fantasy that they can keep the Alabama Senate seat in GOP hands and defeat Judge Roy Moore by mounting a write-in campaign for a nonexistent Republican candidate.

Alabama Democrat Doug Jones: Right-to-Life Begins at Birth

“Every election counts in the race for life,” Evangelist Dr. Alveda King says. “Judge Roy Moore stands for the sanctity of human life from the womb to the tomb. Doug Jones does not. We must always vote our values. Life is a civil right.”

Faith Leaders And Women Of Faith Rally For Judge Roy Moore

"There's been comments about me taking a stand," said Judge Roy Moore at a press conference hosted by a dozen national faith leaders. "I'll quit standing when they lay me in that box and put me in the ground."

CHQ Exclusive: Judge Moore Lawyers Strike Back Against False Reports

We have an exclusive look at the letter Judge Moore's lawyers sent to the Alabama Media Group demanding they retract false and malicious reports. If Judge Moore is fighting the accusations, but Congress is paying millions to hush-up sexual harassment claims, shouldn't those Members be outed and forced to resign?

The Assassination of Roy Moore

We’ve known Roy Moore for years and seen him in public and private more times than we can count, and have never seen anything but character and integrity. Roy Moore is persevering in his campaign, and we are likewise persevering in our support for him and we urge our friends in Alabama to do likewise.

The Despicable Mitch McConnell

The game here isn’t electing Republicans – it is “crushing” conservatives as Mitch McConnell swore to do before the 2014 election. We predict that McConnell will, as he did in Mississippi in 2014, pull out all the stops to kill Roy Moore’s campaign, even if it means electing Far-Left Democrat Doug Jones to the U.S. Senate and jeopardizing the Republican majority.

I Endorse Josh Mandel for U.S. Senator

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
If you want to meet the future of the conservative movement I invite you to meet 40-year old Josh Mandel, the current Ohio State Treasurer, and the limited government constitutional conservative choice to be Ohio’s next United States Senator, and if you are in DC Nov. 7 you can meet Josh Mandel in person.

Ted Cruz Makes Epic Put Down Of Bernie Sanders And The Democrat Tax Collectors

Our advice to Mitch McConnell and the GOP leadership – not that they are likely to accept it – is that they should concentrate on rounding up votes for the Trump tax plan and leave the talking to Ted Cruz.

Trump’s One Step At A Time Iran Policy Fails

President Trump’s step-by-step approach to trying to repair the follies of Obama’s nuclear weapons deal with Iran looks good on paper. However, it fails because to succeed it relies upon two feckless partners: the U.S. Congress and our European allies.

On Iran Trump’s Advisors Offer Dumb And Dumber Options

The inevitable result of continuing to falsely certify that Iran is in compliance with the nuclear weapons deal, and allowing their continued nuclear weapons and missile development cooperation, is an anti-American world dominated by two nuclear-armed rogue states; North Korea and Iran.
