Digital Tyrants Enable Political Tyrants

The internet was once hailed as the ultimate channel for free expression and democratizing the world, but the worldwide web’s promise of unlimited free expression is being quickly eroded by the alliance between political tyrants anxious to retain their power and digital tyrants anxious to retain their power – and make money.

Violencing Politics, Speech, and Religion

The Constitution creates a system of regular and non-violent transition of political power. However, in the view of the anti-constitutional left it seems violence is a justifiable response to losing political power.

Is Trump an Island?

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Would Trump let his deeds speak for themselves, he would quiet his enemies far more than he does with Twitter broadsides. In the prior eight years, Obama tried to invent achievement through soaring rhetoric about what he could never do. Trump seems just intent to diminish in tweets all that he has already accomplished in deeds. But no man is an island, and to press on, Trump needs to allow allies of his agenda to become allies of himself.

Trump’s biggest enemy isn’t the media — it’s himself

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Trump has dug himself in a hole with large segments of the American public, and needs to step away from the shovel if he hopes to get out. A year in office, his accomplishments still are being overshadowed by bad habits and unlikable aspects of his personality. Knowing that much of the media is out to get him, he should stop giving them ammunition. Most important, Trump must stop attacking individual Americans on Twitter.

Why Trump Should Consider a Post-Twitter Presidency

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Why should Trump ever consider pruning back his controversial tweets or confining them to the reportage of his daily achievements, in the manner of every other mostly boring politician? Because personal dueling with journalists, celebrities, and politicians is not only becoming superfluous, but it is now distracting Trump’s audiences from a growing record of achievement. Trump has outgrown the Twitter wars. He should now just declare victory, retire as Twitter champ, hang up his tweeting gloves, and leave the slap-down ring for others.

Your Sentencing Advice Isn’t Helpful, Mr. President

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

It’s really stupid for a president to comment on pending cases. He should stop doing it. One hopes it will not take a judge dismissing a high-profile indictment for the lesson to take hold. There are well over 300 Obama appointees on the federal bench, many of whom would leap at the chance.

Trump’s Tweets Awaken The Living Dead

When Jeb Bush, John Kasich and Lindsey Graham are the voices and faces of the Republican Party it reminds us of scenes from our favorite zombie movies.

Twitter is Trump’s most ‘presidential’ defense against fake news and lies

Madison Gesiotto, Washington Times

Why would we want our political leaders to avoid using the very outlets that are critical when it comes to communicating with millions of constituents? Social media is going to remain an integral part of politics moving forward. We cannot compartmentalize and ignore the facts. American political leaders should not live in the past, but rather progress with the future. Tweet away, Mr. President!

Fighting Fire With Fire

The problem with all of this establishment Republican virtue-signaling and the establishment media calls for civility is that they only go one way. Neither before nor after President Trump hit Brzezinski and Scarborough like a ton of bricks did anyone in the establishment call for civility to the President.

@realDonaldTrump, delete your account

Editors, Washington Examiner

The problem with these tweets isn't that they irritate his enemies but that they empower them. Trump's tweeting isn't always harmful, but it often is. And his best moments, when you think back over his presidency, come when he sticks to his script. He think he is good at winging it because he won the presidency doing so. But that was campaigning, and this is governing, which is a very different thing. It's past time for the president to understand this.

Priebus And Ryan Hijack Trump’s Twitter Account

It’s time for the President to change the password on his Twitter account and focus his efforts on fulfilling his promise to pass a bill that will actually do what Ryancare never will – lower premiums for the forgotten Americans the Freedom Caucus represents.

The Judicial Coup Against President Trump

For all intents and purposes the President’s powers as Commander in Chief and his executive power to maintain the country’s sovereignty have been seized by 97 globalist technology companies and an unelected judge in the Western District of Washington.

Conservatives Should Embrace the Creative Disruption in Today's Politics - Part 2 of 2

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Today’s political and communications environment is a once-in-a-century moment of creative disruption in American politics. Conservative principles—our products, if you will—are timeless, but some of our brands and marketing have gotten stale. Conservatives can look back or we can become more customer-focused, and grow, evolve, and adapt to this new environment of instant communication to lead America out of the smoking ruins of the old political and communications order.

The Disruption of Fortune 500 Companies Has Moved to Politics - Part 1 of 2

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
By using the new and alternative media as a key means of communication with core supporters, neither Trump nor Reagan ceded the ability to set the terms of the campaign to the self-appointed gatekeepers of the establishment media. This was a key element, perhaps the key element, that distinguished their winning campaigns from the also-rans in the primary.
