Conservative Outsider Mike Braun Charging Ahead In Indiana Senate Race

In the lead-up to his third statewide media buy, businessman and conservative outsider Mike Braun called on his two leading opponents, Congressmen Todd Rokita and Luke Messer, to join with him and denounce the news that House Republicans are considering bringing back the pork-barrel projects known as earmarks.

Beating a Hasty Retreat from the Steele Dossier

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

In light of the significant questions that have been raised about the Obama Justice Department’s use of the dossier, it is understandable that the Fusion GPS founders who produced the dossier would want to downplay its significance in triggering the FBI’s Russia investigation. But that was not the tune they were playing at the time the FBI’s investigation was actually triggered. Back then, they couldn’t say enough about the Trump treachery Steele had purportedly uncovered, and with Election Day fast approaching, they wanted that story told far and wide.

Now Is The Time To Step Up Pressure On Iran

January 12 is just over a week from today, but that’s plenty of time for the President to make a major policy statement in support of the Iranian people, and to put in motion the actions necessary to support them in their desire to rid themselves of the corrupt mullahs now stifling their liberty – and threatening our own national security.

The Iran that Obama helped keep in place

Editors, Washington Examiner

Obama never lost faith in his own powers of persuasion. He carried throughout his presidency a naive belief, despite abundant evidence to the contrary, that all regimes are ultimately driven by the desire for prosperity, peace, and security. That the Iranian regime’s desires are nothing of the sort is now on full display. The whole world is watching, and President Trump would do well to learn from his predecessor’s appalling errors.

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.

The Greatest Constitutional Crisis Of Trump's Presidency

The greatest constitutional crisis of Trump's presidency is the overreach of the federal judiciary, manifested first in the various lower court orders attempting to stymie the President's orders on immigration, and now, most seriously, by judges attempting to bypass the President to run the military and the Department of Defense from the federal bench.

Liberal Humiliation: Trump vs. Obama on Iran

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Obama was silent for those students and millions of other decent Iranians. He wanted his deal so much that, as we know, he sent still more millions to the mullahs in cash, so they could use those dollars in any untraceable manner they wished. What we also know is that the Donald J. Trump administration has taken the exact opposite approach from the Obama administration to events in Iran. They are unqualifiedly — and immediately — supporting the demonstrators and democracy. Bravo!

Scott Taylor: The Terrorist Congressman

When Rep. Scott Tayor (VA-2) screamed obscenities and threatened to "blow up" NumbersUSA he clearly brought discredit upon the House of Representatives and may have violated a number of state and federal statutes. It is time the House of Representatives investigated him for those threats.

AG Jeff Sessions Opens Uranium One Investigation

This isn’t a fishing expedition, Attorney General Sessions is to be congratulated for ordering prosecutors to look into these matters to ensure that the public interest and law were followed throughout the process in light of very credible whistleblower allegations and the facts thus far revealed in the congressional hearings on Uranium One.

Irrational Obama-Era Labor Regulations Overturned

Irrational decisions by Obama's National Labor Relations Board, such as striking down a Hooters franchise policy requiring employees to be polite to co-workers and guests, have been overturned by the Trump board.

Obama produced sinister miniseries for Democrats

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Obama officials pressured federal investigators to back off investigations into huge money-laundering, weapons and drug trafficking operations by the terrorist group Hezbollah. It was all in the name of placating Iran — Hezbollah’s patron nation — so that the Obama administration could ink a ridiculously lopsided deal on Iran’s nuclear program. A deal that scored Iran hundreds of millions in cash and billions more in sanctions relief.

Trump’s National Security Strategy: A Welcome Break From Obama And Bush

Neocons, the congressional war party, and the military – industrial complex will no doubt be ready to criticize President Trump’s national security strategy as a retreat from America’s role in the world – but nothing could be further from the truth.

Democrat Doug Jones Comes Out In Support Of DACA: Miss Roy Moore Yet?

Whether Doug Jones has an R or a D next to his name in the Senate Directory doesn’t really matter to the Republican establishment that shares Jones’ worldview and policy preferences on issues from DACA and illegal immigration, to the growth of government, to funding Planned Parenthood.

CMR: Judges Should Not Run Our Military

Federal judges do not have the power to run the military, but they will continue to do so unless the Executive Branch vigorously takes up the fight. Unfortunately, LGBT activists and Obama holdovers at Defense and Justice are about to give away core constitutional powers of the Presidency to the judiciary.

Pro-Amnesty Virginia GOP Congressman Scott Taylor Flips Out

Virginia Congressman Scott Taylor is a classic RINO, telling his conservative constituents one thing about illegal immigration during the campaign and then voting the liberal line once he got to Washington. Getting caught by NumbersUSA caused him to totally flip-out and threaten to blow-up their headquarters.

Make Two Phone Calls To Stop Amnesty

We urge every CHQ reader to call two Congressmen – their own Representative and Virginia Congressman Scott Taylor (VA-2). The Toll-Free Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044. Tell them them you oppose amnesty for any class of illegal alien and that you will oppose any Member of Congress who votes for an amnesty bill.

The FBI-Led Coup Against President Trump

It is time for Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray to recover control of their agencies before the soft coup being led by Robert Mueller, James Comey and rogue FBI agent Peter Strzok engenders a real constitutional crisis.

President Trump Was Right To Revise National Monument Boundaries

Democratic Presidents used their purported authority under the Antiquities Act to lock-up millions of acres of land of dubious historical or environmental value. President Trump’s revision of the boundaries of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante monuments strikes the right balance between protection and development.

Trump Tweets Order To DOJ: Will Sessions Override Corrupt Dems And Comply?

As much as we respect Attorney General Jeff Sessions, President Trump wasn’t elected, and he wasn’t appointed Attorney General, to continue the Obama-era policies of defying congressional subpoenas. If Jeff Sessions can’t get his underlings to comply with Congressional subpoenas heads should roll – either theirs or his.
