Remembering Tom Ellis: Unsung Hero Of The Conservative Movement

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
North Carolina lawyer and political strategist Tom Ellis passed away last week at the age of 97. Ellis, whom many credit with recruiting Jesse Helms to run for the Senate, is in my view one of the two or three most important unsung heroes of the conservative movement.

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.

Part 2 of 3 Before There Was Facebook And Cambridge Analytica Conservatives Had The Viguerie Company

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Every battle we fight, even if we lose, gives us the opportunity to educate voters on the issues, attract new people to the conservative - populist movement that won President Trump the Republican presidential nomination, and build new conservative organizations and leaders.

Before There Was Facebook And Cambridge Analytica Conservatives Had The Viguerie Company Part 1 of 3

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Liberals have effective control of the mass media -- a virtual monopoly on TV, newspapers, magazines and their associated websites, and increasingly, social media. However, there is one method of mass commercial communication that the liberals do not control -- direct mail.

Celebrate and Emulate Bill Buckley

Ed Feulner, CNS News

Buckley was reluctant to provide a final definition of conservatism, but he offered himself as a definition, admitting he was dependent on human freedom, not as an end, but as a means -- to “live my life an obedient man, but obedient to God, subservient to the wisdom of my ancestors; never to the authority of political truths arrived at yesterday at the voting booth.” What a legacy William F. Buckley has left for us to celebrate -- and emulate.

The Conservative Cause Is Bigger Than Any Two Men

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Looking toward the 2018 primaries, the rupture of relations between Trump and Bannon has created a temporary leadership vacuum in the conservative – populist movement, so it is up to each of us to step up and do what we can to fill that vacuum; the need for top quality conservative candidates for every office is too great, our goals are too important, and our mission is too urgent for this battle of personalities to slow us, let alone to stop us.

Book Review: Just Right by Lee Edwards, Ph.D.

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
I urge all of my friends and CHQ readers to add Just Right by Lee Edwards to their Christmas list, not only is it a joy to read, but it is an essential chronicle of the rise of the modern conservative movement through the eyes of one of the few men who have been at the center of it all from 1958 to the present.

Book Review: Skirmishes by Neal B. Freeman

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Skirmishes is a must read for those who want to understand the many debates and intellectual battles – great and small – that helped define today’s conservatism. And who better to write about them than Neal B. Freeman who was – and remains – at the heart of many of those battles.

CHQ Chairman Richard Viguerie Receives IMPACT Awards Lifetime Achievement Award

The awards recognized outstanding efforts of unsung warriors in numerous fields outside of government service. The honorees were recognized for making notable contributions to preserving America’s liberties with their life work.

A Life For Liberty and Decency

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Lee Edwards' "Just Right: A Life in Pursuit of Liberty" is correctly labeled a memoir, but that doesn't do the author justice. It's more than an autobiography; it's another look at the conservative movement. But this time, Edwards is in the thick of things. He's recounting the era from personal experiences. And having been at its core for six decades, while working with and for all of the major players, he understands it as well as anyone. This book is not about the movement's leaders as much as it is about its soul.

Scholarship Deadline For October 12 Conservative Double Your Donors Seminar Fast Approaching

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
America needs young conservatives to master the knowledge it takes to build organizations and campaigns for the next 50 years to defeat progressive forces. As the "Funding Father of the Conservative Movement," I want to pass on my knowledge to the next generation. You can help make that happen.

The Conservative Movement Is Alive and Well

Lee Edwards, CNS News

When we consider the manifold contributions of the Fund for American Studies, The American Spectator, and the Media Research Center over the years and reflect that they are but a part of the conservative movement, we can rest assured that the movement is alive and well and resolute in its goal to preserve ordered liberty in America, both for this generation and generations to come.

Change The Life Of A Young Conservative

By: Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
As a general rule, the left does a far better job of marketing and communicating their dangerous ideas and policies than we conservatives do marketing freedom and liberty.  I plan to change that with my October 12th seminar.

Arnold Steinberg’s Conservative Odyssey

Richard A. Viguerie and David Franke, The American Spectator

If you want to understand how a new political movement can come from terra incognita to dominate American politics by the 1980s, read Arnold Steinberg’s amazing and exciting political odyssey Whiplash! Yes, Buckley, Goldwater, and Reagan were important and essential, but it took the labors of hundreds of citizen-soldiers to succeed in such an enormous accomplishment. Steinberg was, and is, one of the most important of these dedicated conservatives, and he has quite a story to tell.

If you are leading a conservative organization – or want to start one – I invite you to take this one-time opportunity to understand the new “Age of Trump” marketing environment we conservatives face, and save $500, by registering today for my October 12 direct mail/marketing seminar.

Could October 12 Decide The Future Of The Conservative Movement?

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
On October 12 I am holding my first (and maybe only) direct mail/marketing seminar. In my opinion, the next three years offer an unprecedented opportunity for conservative organizations to grow and I want to share my insights with as many conservatives as possible.

The Heritage Foundation And Jim DeMint: Both Vital To The Conservative Movement

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
I was there, so to speak, at the beginning of the Heritage Foundation and what many people in Washington seem to have forgotten is that Heritage was founded to be a movement conservative force independent of the Republican Party and establishment Republican leaders.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions: More Trump Than Trump White House

Yesterday Attorney General Sessions declared: “For those that continue to seek improper and illegal entry into this country, be forewarned: This is a new era. This is the Trump era. The lawlessness, the abdication of the duty to enforce our immigration laws, and the catch and release practices of old are over.”

What President Trump Doesn’t Get About the Freedom Caucus

What President Trump doesn’t seem to understand is that when establishment Republicans talk about “governing” and “legislating” what they really mean is growing government at a slightly slower pace or to benefit a different set of cronies than the Democrats would if they were in power.

CHQ Receives White House Briefing

My overall impression after the meeting was that the White House is very engaged and committed to pushing the President’s government reform and spending priorities. Whether the President pushes his priorities through a tweet storm or by turning on his legendary sales skills remains to be seen, but this isn’t the kind of "show vote" government that we are used to from Capitol Hill Republicans, this is real.
