Religious Liberty Isn’t a Government Privilege

David French, National Review

The Founders appropriately resolved the conflict between fundamental rights and government power. In all but the most compelling circumstances, fundamental rights should prevail. This does not mean that asserting a religious-liberty claim means automatic victory. The assertion must be sincere, and even sincere assertions should be overcome when the governmental interests are sufficiently compelling and its action appropriately narrow.

Will Supreme Court Choice Divide or Unite Trump Coalition?

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
With President Trump meeting with key Senators to discuss his first Supreme Court nomination it is vital for conservatives to contact the White House and to respectfully urge President Trump to avoid nominating Judge William Pryor to the Supreme Court.

Conservative Opposition to Judge William H. Pryor Jr. Growing

What was a trickle of cultural conservatives voicing concern about Judge Pryor has begun to build into a steady stream of opposition. “Pryor may be 90 percent good on his decisions, but that is not good enough,” said Tim Wildmon, president of the American Family Association. “We need someone who will be just like Scalia, 100 percent, in terms of their judicial philosophy."

President Trump: Don’t Nominate Judge Pryor, Get Your First Supreme Court Pick Right

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
We know where Judge Pryor stands, and while he has a good record on some of our issues, his willingness to create new protected classes and endow them with judicially created rights unmoored to legislation or the plain language of the Constitution and his failure to protect religious liberty clearly disqualifies him from consideration as a replacement for Justice Antonin Scalia.

FedUp PAC Launches Unprecedented Catholic Voter Outreach

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
This election is winnable.  It is close enough to be turned around overnight.  The key to shifting the Catholic vote in Trump’s favor is to reach individual Catholics, and Catholic women with specific information and facts the media has not reported.  And through FedUp PAC there is a way to do that.

Trump Voters: Send Them A Message Nationalize The Election

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Despite the abysmal failure of the GOP’s national leadership to fight the campaign on national issues, the election has been at least partly nationalized on a broader theme – a simple rejection of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama’s failed policies and their stated goal of fundamentally changing America.

It’s Time To Fight And Win The Election We Have

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
In this battle there is only the victory or defeat of constitutional liberty and the rule of law. In this battle there is no third option, there is no compromise, there is no sitting out the election. I’m all in for Trump and Pence and I urge you to join me and them in making America great again.

As Election Nears #NeverTrump Become Less And Less Credible

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Why, in the face of the indisputable threats facing our country, would mature men and women who purport to be leaders of the Republican Party and the conservative movement do anything that strengthens Hillary Clinton, that gives her even one more vote?

Delegate Bob Marshall: Conservatives and Christians - Please Don’t Elect Hillary!

I understand the reluctance of some conservatives to vote for Trump, but no reason is sufficient to justify not voting for Trump-Pence because the consequences of Hillary’s policies would profoundly harm America and those we love!  To think that a Republican Congress would protect us from her actions is delusional and defies recent experience.

Ginni Thomas: Why Trump?

Hillary Clinton’s embrace of two sets of rules would continue to denigrate America, where her limousine liberal donors, the mainstream media and Hollywood elites would benefit, while the government is turned upon the rest of us.

#NeverHillary

Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton.  We have a binary choice. One or the other will be our next president. Let's be clear if you are a Republican or a conservative and you don't vote for Trump you are helping Hillary Clinton become the next president whether you vote for her or not.

Failed Catholic Church Leaders Are the Problem

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
The false narrative being spread to the Catholic faithful that capitalism is wrong is the fault of the leadership of the Catholic Church that has increasingly become a left-leaning ideological mouthpiece instead of fulfilling its role of providing spiritual guidance consistent with the Bible.

Hillary Clinton’s Speech: A Trumpet Upon Which Disaster On Disaster Was Proclaimed

The elitist hypocrisy of Clinton’s remarks was not lost on those Americans left behind for the past eight years by the economic and immigration policies of Clinton and Obama, and most importantly to those Americans whose constitutional liberty is threatened with attack should Mrs. Clinton win this election, her remarks were the sound of a trumpet upon which disaster on disaster was proclaimed.

Sorry Friends, If You Are #NeverTrump Then You Are #4Hillary

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
I still think Ted Cruz is the best candidate conservatives had in the race, but he is unfortunately not the candidate who won a majority of the delegates – that distinction goes to Donald Trump – and it is to Trump that right-of-center voters will have to look if our country and constitutional liberty are to survive. Don't buy that argument? Then look in the mirror and read this list...

Kasich Criticizes Religious Liberty Laws: ‘Chill Out, Get Over It’

Pam Key, Breitbart

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Republican presidential candidate Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) said religious liberty laws that allow refusal of services based on sexual orientation like the ones vetoed in Georgia and passed in North Carolina and Mississippi are unnecessary.

Cruz condemns GA Gov. Nathan Deal’s veto of ‘religious liberty’ bill

Hallerman, Bluestein and Galloway, AJC.com

“I thought that was very disappointing to see Gov. Deal of Georgia side with leftist activists and side against religious liberty,” Cruz said.

Behold the wood of the Cross…

Where is the pushback on Mrs. Clinton’s publicly announced plan that, if elected, she will lead her administration in a war on Christianity and Christian practices? The deafening silence from religious leaders is indicative of a problem we face throughout today’s body politic, and especially in the conservative movement, and that is a lack of moral courage in the face of pressure from those who seek to destroy our culture, the rule of law, and our liberty.

The Establishment Media Misses The Real Message In Cruz’s Iowa Victory

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Ted Cruz’s victory in the Iowa Caucuses blew the Republican establishment's idea of a pause or truce in the battle for the culture right out of the sky. Cruz’s unabashed appeal to faith-first voters, his vast support among politically active conservative Christians and Jews, and his deep personal faith guarantee that the cultural issues will not be off the table this campaign.

Over 500 Faith And Cultural Conservative Leaders Endorse Ted Cruz

In endorsing Ted Cruz for President Tony Perkins spoke for many faith leaders and cultural conservatives when he said, "I trust Ted to fight to pull America out of the political and cultural tailspin that President Obama’s policies have put us in. This is no normal election; this election is about the very survival of our Constitution and our republic.”
