Conservatives Should Walk If Their GOP Senate Candidate Supports Mitch McConnell

We like state Senator Leah Vukmir in the Wisconsin GOP primary, but we think support for McConnell is a deal-breaker for most conservatives. That said, there’s still plenty of time for Leah Vukmir to join CHQ Chairman Richard Viguerie and other conservative leaders in calling for McConnell's ouster.

Steve Bannon defines populist revolt at Values Voter Summit

"Why is this a populist revolt? You guys have more common sense, more understanding of what we need to do. More understanding. And the first order of business is to undo all the damage of globalism, right? That allowed Silicon Valley, and Wall Street, and Hollywood, and the imperial capital right here in Washington D.C. and London and Beijing and Davos -- the party of Davos. To undo globalism."

Bannon: GOP's Entire ‘Establishment Globalist Clique' Must Go

“We are declaring war on the Republican establishment that does not back the agenda that Donald Trump ran Steve Bannon said. Big donors are joining the effort, he added, “because they are tired of having their money burned up” on establishment candidates. “It’s a new game in town. We’re going to cut off the oxygen to Mitch McConnell. Mitch McConnell’s biggest asset is the money. We’re going to make it the biggest liability. We’re going after these guys tooth and nail.”

Conservative Outsider Senate Candidates Breaking Fundraising Records

While fundraising support for the Republican establishment is drying-up due to the failure of Capitol Hill’s Republican leaders to produce on their campaign promises, two of the most promising Republican outsiders, Indiana’s Mike Braun and Wisconsin’s Leah Vukmir, are reporting record-breaking support.

Outsider Erik Prince Looking At Challenging Establishment Senator John Barrasso

While Erik Prince’s views on the conservative agenda need to be explored further before we can make any kind of endorsement, we do know a lot of things we don’t like about Senator John Barrasso, and first among them is his crony relationship with Mitch McConnell.

Fed Up Donors Tell GOP Senate Leaders Pass Bills Or Resign

“I think major donors are tired of writing checks to a do-nothing Congress,” Roy Bailey, an influential, Dallas-based GOP donor told POLITICO, and he's not the only one who has closed his wallet to the Republican establishment.

VP Pence’s Chief Of Staff Nick Ayers Is Our New Hero

Vice President Pence's Chief of Staff Nick Ayers told a group of major donors to the RNC they should call members of Congress and tell them if they don't pass Trump's agenda "we’re recruiting opponents, we’re maxing out to their campaigns, and we’re funding super PACs to defeat all of you.”

CBS: Corrupt, Biased Sunday

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

For anyone who doubts the daily double standard of the news media, just look up CBS show episodes from Sunday, Sept. 10. Up first, "Sunday Morning" host Jane Pauley softly and sweetly served one puffball after another to Hillary Clinton for her book-tour kickoff. That evening, anchor Charlie Rose harshly lectured President Trump's former chief strategist, Steve Bannon, on "60 Minutes."

Trump’s Original Sin

Steve Bannon's "60 Minutes" interview provided one sentence that explained most of President Trump's difficulties; “48 hours after we won” a fundamental decision was made to embrace the establishment because Trump needed to “govern.”

President Trump's former chief strategist Steve Bannon said Mitch McConnell and "to a degree" Paul Ryan "do not want Donald Trump's populist, economic, nationalist agenda to be implemented.

Bannon's exit – what does it mean for Trump's agenda?

Chad Groening, OneNewsNow.com

CHQ Chairman Richard Viguerie said "[His departure is] concerning not just because Steve Bannon's a great asset to our cause, but it's also beginning to allow us to connect the dots," he begins. "Democrats seem to be taking over the White House – [attorney Michael] Cohen, the daughter and son-in-law, General Kelly," the conservative icon observes. "Republicans have been leaving: Spicer, Reince, Bannon, General Flynn, KT McFarland."

Steve Bannon Isn’t Going Away

Walter Russell Mead, Wall Street Journal

Leveraging the Breitbart media empire and his own star power, Mr. Bannon seeks to play the role of a latter-day Paul Revere, riding through cyberspace to warn the American people that the Chinese are coming. The goal is to create conditions for a new domestic political alignment and a fundamental shift in American strategy abroad.

Bannon's real political enemies are in the 'resistance,' not the White House

Matt Schlapp, The Hill

In presidential politics, there are people who become “The Honorable” and join the White House team, and there are those who revel in being pirates on the outside. Bannon may be the first to attempt to be both. My only advice as he begins his new voyage is to remember that Republican-on-Republican friction is sometimes needed, but in the end the true political enemy are those who comprise the #resistance.

Personnel is Policy: Does Bannon's Departure Signal the End of Trump's Commitment to Govern as a Conservative?

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
It seems that the West Wing is now being run by the liberal Democrats. Gary Cohn, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, General John Kelly, H.R. McMaster, and the Obama holdovers at the NSC have all survived and thrived, while the conservatives have been run-off.

Steve Bannon faces uncertain future in Trump White House

Sarah Westwood, Washington Examiner

Although Bannon has previously found himself at the center of internal power struggles over access and influence in the West Wing, people familiar with the situation say Bannon currently faces what could be the most serious challenge to his role so far thanks to Kelly's preference for McMaster and to the recent ouster of his closest internal ally, former chief of staff Reince Priebus.

Steve Bannon and Scott Pruitt beat Kushner, Tillerson and Ivanka on Paris Agreement

Sarah Westwood and W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

Trump aligned himself with the conservative critics of the Paris Agreement in the end, consistent with his campaign promises last year. This group includes free-market activists who disapprove of resolving environmental problems through heavy-handed government regulations, Republicans from energy-producing states and climate change skeptics. But in his remarks explaining his decision, the president said it all came down to "America first."

The President’s Gary Cohn Problem: The First Article In An Ongoing Series

When one sifts through all of the evidence and clues as to why the President’s economic and domestic policy agenda remain not only unfulfilled, but unarticulated, one problem keeps coming to the fore: The appointment of former Goldman Sachs President and Chief Operating Officer Gary Cohn to head the President’s National Economic Council.
