Wisconsin’s Most Important Election Wasn’t Yesterday’s Presidential Primary

The most important vote for Wisconsin conservatives and populists was not counted last night. It is the coming August 9 Republican congressional primary. Until Paul Ryan is defeated, and Paul Nehlen nominated and elected, the Washington Cartel will remain firmly in control of the US House of Representatives. #NeverRyan

The Full Spectrum Conservative In Today's Wisconsin GOP Primary

Ted Cruz is the only candidate who can credibly run for president as a full-spectrum conservative, build a winning conservative coalition AND who can be trusted to, without question, govern according to limited government constitutional conservative principles. We urge our friends in Wisconsin to vote for Ted Cruz in today's Republican primary election.

Charles Hernick: Taking Constitutional Liberty into the Liberal Lion’s Den

Don Beyer is the liberal Democratic incumbent in Virginia’s Eighth Congressional District.  Auto dealer and former Virginia Lt. Governor Don Beyer, is one of the old dogs of Virginia’s jaded liberal establishment. Beyer’s answer to any problem is more government, more taxes and less liberty for Virginians. Charles Hernick looks like exactly the kind of sharp, thoughtful constitutionalist needed to take on the knee-jerk liberal Democratic incumbent.

In Wisconsin Trump Hits the Limit of His Stream of Consciousness Campaign

The arrest of Donald Trump’s campaign manager for grabbing a female reporter, and Trump’s ridiculous attempts to lie and tweet him out of the rap in the face of clear video evidence drove Trump’s numbers with women even lower. But Trump hit the limit of his stream of consciousness campaign with the truly bizarre statement that women who have an abortion should somehow be punished if abortion is illegal.

Donald Trump can’t quite speak the language of conservatives

W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

Trump's conservatism, as explained in an interview with the Washington Examiner in January, was never of the movement variety. He is very much a nationalist rather than a limited-government person, a pre-Reagan Republican.

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.

Conclusion: Should Conservatives Support Trump If He Wins The GOP Nomination?

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman and George Rasley, Editor, CHQ
The idea that movement conservatives should join forces with the Republican establishment to deny Donald Trump the nomination would be an unforgivable betrayal, perpetuate the near-treasonous sellout of our country, and be a disaster for the conservative movement. We urge Trump and Cruz delegates to form an alliance and to stand together to ensure that the Republican National Convention nominates a conservative – populist ticket.

Part 2: What Should Conservatives Do if Trump Wins the Republican Nomination?

What we see on the part of the Republican establishment is not an effort to deliver the nomination to Senator Ted Cruz, but an effort to create a chaotic situation in which no outsider has a majority, thereby delivering to the Washington Cartel’s powerbrokers and insiders the ability to choose the nominee at the Republican National Convention. If that happens, then conservatives will have to face the reality of working with Donald Trump or opposing him at the GOP Convention.

Part 1: What Should Conservatives Do if Trump Wins the Republican Nomination?

Part One Of A Four Part Series: Trump won Arizona handily with a near-majority of 47 percent and his current cache of at least 739 delegates pretty much seals the math against any other candidate approaching a majority of 1237 delegates going into the Republican National Convention. So what should conservatives do if Donald Trump is the Republican nominee? Today we examine the first of four scenarios.

Ted Cruz: The Only Conservative for President

The question now before Republican voters is not Trump vs #NeverTrump, it is who can best unite all of the elements of the winning Republican coalition. And as CHQ Chairman Richard Viguerie has pointed out on numerous occasions, that candidate is Ted Cruz.

Cruz Surges in Florida While Rubio Loses His Way

As a former supporter of Marco Rubio, I appeal to my fellow Floridians: It's time to join arms with Ted Cruz. A strong finish in the Sunshine State increases the speed at which Cruz will to overtake Trump nationally, and thus secure the gold medal for conservative principles and for a better America.

Conservative Leaders Demand Trump Disclose Hidden Tax Returns

The American people have a right to know that the man or woman who would lead them is beyond reproach in matters of personal finances. If you will not make your returns public we can only assume, at this point, that you are hiding something. Something which, if revealed, could seriously damage your quest for the White House.

FedUp PAC Poll: Conservatives Trust Cruz More Than Trump

A plurality of 45% of conservatives say Cruz is more honest than Trump, while 38% give Trump the edge. Trump’s attacks on Cruz as a liar appear to have had little effect except among Trump’s own voters.

Ted Cruz is the Only Alternative to Donald Trump

The question now before Republican voters, and especially those inclined to support the wishes of the Party elite in DC, is not Trump vs #NeverTrump, it is who can best unite all of the elements of the winning Republican coalition. And as CHQ Chairman Richard Viguerie has pointed out on numerous occasions, that candidate is Ted Cruz.

It’s the Primaries, Stupid: The Most Important Office On The Ballot

Think of the tens of thousands of conservatives who have been turning out for rallies and events for the outsider candidates for President. If there are 186,000 precincts in America, and we elected 100,000 principled conservative Republican precinct committeemen across the country, conservatives could take control of a majority of the GOP state committees. And if we did that, we could then elect a majority (85+) of principled conservatives to the 162-member Republican National Committee, giving conservatives control of the RNC for the first time in the modern era.

Donald Trump: The Anti-Tea Party Candidate

Tea Party Patriots leader Jenny Beth Martin made a powerful case against Donald Trump in a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference this past Friday, and in it were points we think every conservative and Tea Party movement supporter should consider as they vote in their respective Republican primaries.

Did dumbed-down conservatism lead to Trump?

W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

If it weren't for a conservative desire to stoke anger and encourage people to respond to it in the same way they react to team sports, it would be hard to imagine so many people flocking to Trump regardless of his actual substantive public policy positions.

Ted Cruz, A Personal Look At A Humble Man

Kevin Mooneyhan, Daily Caller

The American people still have plenty to learn about the most trustworthy and consistent conservative running for president in the 2016 race. I can only hope that they will look to the people who have fought side by side with him over the years rather than to his current political rivals who will apparently say anything they can to stop him from winning the nomination.

GOP Establishment Ways and Means Chair in hot primary fight

Jake Sherman, Politico

Kevin Brady is one of the House GOP incumbents from Texas and other states, scrambling to fend off anti-establishment challengers in the season of Trump and Cruz. But the chairman’s situation is exceptional: Very rarely does a lawmaker so high in the House hierarchy have to sweat so hard to keep his seat.

Cruz: Trump is no conservative

Ben Kamisar, The Hill

Ted Cruz reiterated his response to Trump's threat to sue him over a Cruz campaign ad that framed him as supporting pro-choice judicial nominees as president. That's a tack he took just hours before at a heated press conference where he attempted to goad Trump into filing the suit that he bashed as "frivolous."
