History tells us that the idea of bringing your political enemies into your inner councils is the pathway to failure. Donald Trump must make a clean break with the Republican Quislings, like Mitt Romney and Bob Corker, who enabled Obama to advance his agenda.

Trump’s choice of Scott Pruitt for EPA has the Democrats and leftists turning a nauseating shade of green. Plus, Grab the sleeping pills, Trump’s choice for Labor Secretary is causing nightmares on the left, and, Trump names wrestling empire founder to head the SBA, Democrats see only stooges.

When the Founders proclaimed that our rights came from our Creator, no future president or governing body could ever change, or rescind them, because they did not render them. This act ensured that our property rights were free from seizure... if we paid attention.

To win a war you must first understand you are in a war, General Kelly understands we are in a war on the southern border and he understands how to win it.

The “fake news” anti-Trump Electoral College push is about as phony as it gets. Plus, Attorney General nominee Sen. Jeff Sessions to get help in battling the left’s fake onslaught, and, Trump’s pick to lead on Homeland Security and EPA will help him erase the awful legacy of Obama.

Candidate Donald Trump got NATO right. When it includes states like Montenegro it no longer serves America’s defense. He should speak on behalf of the American people who are expected to pay for everyone else.

Once the power to track someone is granted to the Department of Justice the criteria for tracking will surely expand. We urge CHQ readers to call Congress (the Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to tell your Representative to oppose H.R. 4919 when it comes up under suspension later today.

The courage of Pearl Harbor is contagious, but will today’s students even be told the stories of the heroes of Pearl Harbor, such as Machinist Mate First Class Robert R. Scott?

Donald Trump isn’t transitioning the same as other past presidents and the media hates it. Plus, Trump’s favorability rating is surging and so is the Electoral College’s, and, How important is “diversity” to Trump’s Supreme Court nominations?

Now that Dr. Ben Carson has accepted Donald Trump’s offer to join his administration as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development we hope he understands that running HUD isn’t brain surgery, but it will still require a team of skilled surgeons, like Wendell Cox, and CHQ contributors John Anthony and Tom DeWeese, who know the issues and are prepared to excise the cancerous anti-constitutional policies Barack Obama has put in place.

A group of conservative leaders is urging both houses of Congress to “establish and fund permanent standing committees to conduct hearings and investigations, take testimony, and issue reports on all foreign-funded influence operations inside the United States, and on organizations and movements and fraudulent tax-exempt foundations devoted to the overthrow of the Constitution of the United States.”

Ben Carson at HUD would seem to be the perfect way to infuriate the left. Plus, Conservatives are excited over the chance to end the exile and finally make a difference, and, The crucial Trump cabinet choice we hardly ever hear about: EPA Administrator.

    Andrew Puzder's nomination plays into immigration hawks' fears, even though Trump just this week publicly reaffirmed his support for key restrictionist positions, including cutting legal immigration to "hundreds of thousands" per year from the current 1 million or more.

  • Diana L. Banister, Washington Examiner

    The indefatigable Donald Trump defender and campaign manager, who also happens to be a woman, and who can turn biased or loaded questions from the media back on them, was the missing factor in this election. Americans, men and women both, want a fighter, someone who is not ashamed of what they believe, who will not cave to others. Trump and the Kellyanne factor have made this a brave new media world.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

    The rise of the conservative movement of Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan revealed liberalism’s hour to be but a passing moment. Yet, today, something far beyond conservatism seems to be afoot. As Hegel taught, in the dialectic of history the thesis calls into existence the antithesis. What we seem to be seeing is a rejection, and a counterreformation against the views and values that came out of the social and political revolutions of the 1960s.

  • Peggy Noonan, Wall Street Journal

    People don’t want to be shunted aside or told they’re expendable, that they’re yesterday and no longer count. Especially people whose country this is too, who’ve been here a long time and paid its taxes, whose sons died in its wars.

  • Daniel J. Flynn, The American Spectator

    For progressives, the going-away present of a President Donald Trump, a GOP House and Senate, just 18 Democratic governors, Republican control of more state legislative chambers than at any time in the party’s history, and a pending Supreme Court nominee likely to tilt the balance rightward on the high bench combine to give the Obama presidency a bitter aftertaste.

  • David French, National Review

    It was that retired general who established many of the traditions and customs of the presidency — traditions and customs that limited the control and influence of that office. He could have been a near-king, a warrior-leader of our new nation. Instead, he chose to be a constitutional president.

  • Bill Donohue, CNS News

    President Ronald Reagan was not known to be a particularly religious man, yet he was one of the most religion-friendly presidents we've had in recent memory. All indications are that Trump will be more like Reagan, which is a good omen. When he is attacked for standing up for religious liberty—and he will be—it will be up to us to defend him. We plan to do so with vigor.

  • Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

    The president’s stated priorities have not turned out well. Obama now departs amid the ruin of the Democratic party into a lucrative post-presidency: detached and without a legacy.

  • Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

    The United States Constitution was designed to provide a framework in which rights are guaranteed and voters in states can choose policies in line with their different backgrounds and beliefs. Trump's victory means the left can't jam its policies down on the whole nation—and gives it the incentive to develop policies acceptable not only to its own base but with voters among whom it fell agonizingly short this year.

  • Scott McKay, The American Spectator

    So it is a time for gloating, and rejoicing at the end of the Hard Left’s power. And for celebration of their time in the wilderness — such as it will be, because many of them retain comfy sinecures in universities, media and even, increasingly, within the ranks of corporate America. That time may be long. A political party headed by Keith Ellison and Nancy Pelosi is not a party poised for success anytime soon.

  • Salena Zito, New York Post

    What Democrats, academics and pundits keep refusing to see is that the loss was never about Trump’s candidacy; it was all about how Democrats have increasingly lost touch with their voters outside of coastal America — until those voters finally hit their breaking point.

  • Timothy Cama, The Hill

    Pruitt has sued President Obama’s EPA for nearly every major regulation, and has led the fight among Republican attorneys general against rules like the Clean Power Plan and the Clean Water Rule, two of Trump’s top targets for repeal. Trump’s pick immediately came under fire from Democrats and environmentalists, who warned that Pruitt’s antagonism toward fighting climate change and Obama’s green agenda is a huge risk to the planet.

  • Christopher Bedford, The Daily Caller

    Lee Edwards is not just an historian of the conservative movement, he’s someone who helped shape it. Goldwater, National Review, Young Americans for Freedom, Bill Buckley, Russell Kirk, Human Events, he's been part of it all.

  • Cal Thomas, Washington Times

    Pearl Harbor survivor Donald Stratton’s book reminds us of a better America, an America that was strong in character, not just military power. As president-elect Donald Trump attempts to “make America great again,” he might recall that true greatness is not found in external prosperity or military might alone. Rather, as Stratton reminds us, it comes from within.

    Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg is under enormous pressure from the left to crack down on the "fake news" circulating on the social-media giant. He is well-advised to run as far as he can from the News Police.
