We think something is deeply wrong in the minds of liberal America if the for-profit death of one wild animal generates more outrage than the for-profit death and dismemberment of over 300,000 babies every year. It’s time to end the government subsidies for these murders and bring to account those who appear to be profiting from trafficking in the organs and tissue of the human babies they kill. Please sign our letter to Congress demanding that the Republican leadership actually follow through and conduct an investigation of Planned Parenthood's human organ and tissue trafficking rather than engage in their usual “go nowhere” political posturing.

In a letter to the House and Senate Judiciary Committees constitutional lawyer Mark J. Fitzgibbons explains why the Email Privacy Act (H.R. 699) and the ECPA Amendments Act (S. 356) come up way short on protecting privacy.  While purporting to require warrants to obtain emails, these bills exempt federal and state agencies that issue judge-less administrative subpoenas to obtain private emails and content from individuals, businesses and nonprofit organizations, meaning an alphabet soup of agencies can simply write themselves a free pass to look at your email and other data.

“It is sad that both parties in Congress are complicit in continuing to fund Planned Parenthood through last minute, massive spending bills like CRs (continuing resolutions) or omnibus bills.  I have not and will not vote for any spending bill that sends one cent to Planned Parenthood," said principled limited government constitutional conservative Rep. Jim Bridenstine upon introducing H.R.3245, a bill to prohibit federal government contracts from going to companies that donate to Planned Parenthood.

Mike Huckabee is taking heat from Democrats and establishment Republicans for his blunt comments on President Obama’s Iran nuclear deal. Outspoken candidates like Huckabee, Trump and Cruz are making the news cycles and firing up the base. What’s wrong with that?

To make it simple to let your Representative know that you want John Boehner removed as Speaker of the House, we urge you to sign our petition to second Rep. Meadows’ motion to vacate the Chair. We will forward it to your Representative on your behalf. Conservatives who wish to join CHQ’s effort to help Rep. Meadows can also call their Representative at 1-866-220-0044 and demand that he or she support Meadows’ motion to vacate the Chair.

Our friends at The Public Interest Legal Foundation have now filed a lawsuit in federal court against the Clarke County Election Commission in Mississippi because it has more voters on the rolls than living citizens.

Donald Trump’s staying power in opinion surveys has many pondering whether he can actually win the Republican nomination. Also, the latest on Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush, Mike Huckabee and the struggle to qualify for next week’s debate.

What really got Ted Cruz in trouble was not calling Mitch McConnell a liar – everyone in Washington already knows McConnell is a liar – what got Cruz in trouble with DC’s inside operators was telling the truth about how Capitol Hill works.

The Iranian Islamists have no intention of ending their war with us, and Obama’s plan to pay them to continue it, while giving them the nuclear weapons with which to win it, is giving aid and comfort to the enemy and nothing short of treason.

Today’s look at the 2016 GOP presidential race includes the “big” news concerning Jim Gilmore’s impending announcement, Carly Fiorina’s answers to real questions from conservatives and President Obama warns the world about the Republican candidates.

A little over a week out from the first GOP presidential debate, the sixteen declared Republican candidates face the daunting prospect of trying to buck the party’s negative image, please its angry conservative voting base and win the nomination.

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Readers asked me to expand on my Friday column about the rise of Donald Trump as a contender for the Republican nomination for President. In my view Donald Trump is just the latest in a long line of message carriers who have spoken for grassroots Americans fed-up with the duplicity and betrayals of the Republican establishment and Washington’s ruling class. One of the great ironies of the 2016 Republican presidential campaign may very well be that the establishment Republican political class will finally receive their comeuppance at the hands of Donald Trump, the most unlikely of populist conservatives.

    The budget and appropriations fights are forthcoming. If Barack Obama is willing to risk a government shutdown because he demands our tax dollars continue funding an organization that kills our children and sells their organs, we should have that fight.

  • Rebecca Kaplan, CBS NEWS

    Senate Republicans unveiled a bill Wednesday that aims to block any federal dollars from reaching Planned Parenthood. The legislation is a response to a series of undercover videos produced by anti-abortion activists who claim the organization is selling fetal tissue to researchers.

  • The Daily Beast

    The Los Angeles Superior Court issued a temporary restraining order Wednesday banning an anti-abortion group from releasing any additional footage of officials from a California company that provides fetal tissue to researchers.

    “If this deal is consummated, it will make the Obama administration the world’s leading financier of radical Islamic terrorism,” Cruz said during a round table Tuesday. “Billions of dollars under control of this administration will flow into the hands of jihadists who will use that money to murder Americans, to murder Israelis, to murder Europeans.”

  • Seth McLaughlin, The Washington Times

    Sens. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz have followed through on their promises to shake things up on Capitol Hill since arriving in Washington, but some political analysts say the recent intraparty warfare shows the two rivals for the Republican presidential nomination are split over the best way to give the government a face-lift.

  • Peter Ferrara, Daily Caller

    In his eye-opening new book, Plunder and Deceit, Mark Levin explains the future President Obama’s so-called “progressives” are building for your kids.

  • Matt Pearce, Los Angeles Times

    A Mexican man living in the U.S. illegally had been stopped by Ohio authorities and released weeks before a crime spree in which he's suspected that left one woman dead, officials said.

  • Daniel Davis, Townhall

    Sen. Ted Cruz's public accusation that Mitch McConnell lied to fellow Senators has not gone over well among the GOP leadership. Establishment Republicans are predictably going after the Texas Senator and rebuking him for violating Senate etiquette.

  • Billy House, Bloomberg Politics

    Rep. Mark Meadows' resolution said Boehner had sought “to consolidate power and centralize decision-making, bypassing the majority of the 435 members of Congress” and had “caused the power of Congress to atrophy.”
    Meadows said he’s not asking for co-sponsors and hadn’t spoken directly with Boehner before filing the bid to oust him.

    A Vatican conference recently drew mayors from cities across the globe to discuss climate change and modern slavery. The event marked a new turn in Pope Francis' evolution as a global leader — and as the rare pope with an activist foreign policy.

    “She’s a great person,” Trump said, “and Todd and the whole family. These are great people. And one of the things I most admire about her is that she took so much nonsense — lies and disgusting lies and she handles it so well. She’s tough and smart and just a great woman.”

  • Beth Reinhard and Christopher S. Stewart

    A Texas oil man, a Wall Street financier and several former U.S. ambassadors are among the top donors to Jeb Bush’s super PAC, providing hard evidence the Republican establishment is rallying to his presidential candidacy as he girds for a long primary battle.

  • John Podhoretz, The New York Post

    On Tuesday, CNN released a poll showing opposition to the deal at 52 percent and support at 42 percent. This came on the heels of last week’s Pew poll that showed 48 percent opposition and 38 percent support. It also followed passionate testimony on behalf of the deal in the Senate from Secretary of State John Kerry and Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz.

  • Lloyd Marcus, American Thinker

    Longtime Tea Partier Lloyd Marcus thinks Ted Cruz is the presidential candidate “most likely to remain true to their promises to We the People; fight to repeal ObamaCare, end the invasion of our borders, defend life and traditional values.”

  • Owen Strachan, RedState

    Planned Parenthood is facilitating preposterous acts of evil. In its abortion-and-fetal-tissue-business, it is doing the following: 1) killing innocent lives, 2) desecrating their bodies, and 3) profiting from these bodies.
