Ted Cruz Warns against Privatizing the International Space Station

Kevin Mooney, National Review

NASA must work to avoid any disruption in U.S. access to space that strategic competitors could exploit. This is the point Cruz drove home to NASA officials back in May, during a subcommittee hearing that focused on future plans for the space station. We won’t stay on the right track for long unless Cruz succeeds in scuttling the administration’s foolish proposal in exchange for one that ensures uninterrupted U.S. access to low-Earth orbit and beyond.

The Six Hottest Senate Races For Conservatives

At a major meeting of conservative leaders yesterday, some of the movement’s best political minds handicapped the Senate races with us, and this is where we see the hottest conservative campaigns as of today.

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.

Ted Cruz Nails Mark Zuckerberg's Liberal Bias

When Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg claimed there was no political bias at Facebook Senator Cruz rattled off a laundry list of examples: A “Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day” page that was banned in 2012, around the time that homosexuals were organizing a boycott of the fast-food chain after its chief operating officer made comments against same-sex marriage. Diamond and Silk, the outspoken Trump fangirls who were told by Facebook that their “content and brand” were “unsafe to the community” were just two examples on the list.

Ted Cruz Explains Why He Opposed The Omni-Disaster

In 2016, the American people voted overwhelmingly for Republicans to change Washington. Now, Congress did the exact opposite: pass a massive $1.3 trillion spending bill — 2200 pages drafted by the Swamp in the dark of night — that will plunge our nation even deeper into debt.

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?
