Tea Party Leader Becky Gerritson: Congress Must Stop Obama "Thought Police"

Our friend Becky Gerritson, President of the Wetumpka, Alabama TEA Party organization, correctly identifies the Obama plan to punish states whose governors don't acknowledged global warming by depriving them of disaster relief funds as the new "thought police." Gerritson asks in a post on her www.bornfreeamericanwoman.com website a question every American ought to ask when confronted with another act of lawlessness by President Obama, "Why in the world is Congress allowing this to continue?"

Cruz Announces For President – Lefty Snark Immediately Erupts

Country class voters understand that when the establishment attacked Gov. Sarah Palin, as they are now attacking Sen. Ted Cruz, it is really them and their interests and values that are being attacked and they are in no mood to turn the other cheek this time around.

Religious Persecution: First Freedom Remains Under Global Siege

Christians continue to be the most persecuted faith, and were penalized or harassed in various ways in 102 countries in 2013. Jews suffer disproportionately, targeted in 77 nations yet making up just .2 percent of the world’s population. The Middle East, dominated by Muslim states, shows the greatest tendency toward persecution and intolerance. 

Cruz is the First Top-Tier Movement Conservative Candidate Since Reagan

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

Ted Cruz's base is the conservative movement and his almost spiritual bond with America’s country class – the voters outside the Beltway who have looked with alarm at Obama’s fundamental transformation of America and seen not a spending bill to be negotiated or a deal to be cut, as the Republican establishment does, but an existential threat to American exceptionalism and the future of constitutional government that must be resisted at every turn.

Rush Transcript of Ted Cruz's Speech at Liberty University

Here is a rush transcript of Ted Cruz speech to Liberty University. Sen. Ted Cruz kicked off a new phase in the 2016 presidential race Monday when he declared himself a candidate for the GOP nomination, setting the stage for a frenetic battle among Republicans eager to take back the White House.

Saying during a speech at Liberty University Monday that he believed "millions of courageous conservatives" were ready to rise up and vowing to restore the "promise of America," Cruz announced: "And that is why, today, I am announcing that I'm running for president of the United States."

Exposing the Unseen Hand Wrecking the GOP

Matt Boyle’s reporting on the Walker campaign and Liz Mair was a great service to the conservative movement, not because it exposed the views of one obscure political consultant, but because it flushed out those like Derek Hunter, who unwittingly confirmed exactly how the unseen hand of the anti-conservative parasites of the Washington consulting class are wrecking the Republican Party. 

The GOP Establishment Just Can’t Stop Lying About Their Spending

We urge you to call your Representative and Senators (the Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) tell them you are on to the game the Republican and Democrat Capitol Hill establishment has been playing, and that you want an end to the lies about the budget and you want real spending cuts NOW.

Megyn Kelly Is Wrong On Sharia: Jindal Is The Only Presidential Candidate Who Gets The Islamist Threat

For Megyn Kelly's future reference, Sharia is not something you are "into" like yoga or TM. Sharia is a culture completely antithetical to the Constitution and its protection of individual liberty and the sanctity of the human spirit. As Gov. Bobby Jindal correctly pointed out, the United States under Barack Obama and his predecessor have allowed millions of Muslims who wish to overthrow our Constitution and replace it with Islam – Sharia – into the United States and we need to revise our immigration policies to put an end to that practice NOW. Please sign our letter thanking Gov Bobby Jindal for telling the truth about radical Islam.

Why We Think Glenn Beck Is Wrong To Bolt The GOP

We appreciate Glenn Beck’s frustration, but if you want to change what’s going on in America today the battle is inside the Republican Party, not between the GOP and some yet-to-be-created third party. And if you want to win that battle don’t leave the Republican Party, change the Republican Party by running for precinct committeeman, county chairman or for the Republican nomination for office against a big government incumbent before you consider bolting the GOP. 

Conservative Presidential Candidates, Come On In, The Water’s Fine

The 2016 Republican presidential nomination is not a contest between Jeb Bush and "not Jeb Bush." There’s a vast continuum on the political right between the ideas shared by Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton on one end and Donald Trump, who has just announced and filed his presidential exploratory committee, on the other. And there’s a deep bench of potential presidential candidates and many conservatives with the national standing to make the case for their leadership on the conservative agenda.

Netanyahu’s Victory a Loss for Obama, Win for America

No doubt the establishment media will make much of Netanyahu’s victory as a rebuke of Obama’s Middle East policy, but when they do they are only telling half the story.

Conservative Alert: House GOP Introduces Budget

House Republicans today introduced their Fiscal Year 2016 budget. The House GOP budget proposal partly privatizes Medicare, turns Medicaid into block grants to the states, repeals Obamacare and reaches balance in 10 years, and, it increases defense spending, challenging Republicans in Congress to make good on their promises to deeply cut federal spending.

Administration Should Speed Military Withdrawal From Afghanistan

In Afghanistan Washington and its allies built a large government bureaucracy and security force in Kabul, but on a potential foundation of sand. The Afghan government is noted for venality, incompetence, and corruption. Keeping US forces in the country is not necessary to confront al-Qaeda, which largely has disappeared from Afghanistan. 

Gov. Walker: Who You Walk With Tells Conservatives Who You Are

If Governor Scott Walker won’t surround himself with conservatives during his campaign, why should we believe he will surround himself with conservatives in a Walker White House? “Tell me who you walk with and I’ll tell you who you are” is an aphorism that CHQ Chairman Richard Viguerie uses regularly, and that many movement conservatives have come to believe through the hard experience of seeing promising candidates be pushed left by hiring anti-conservative staff.

Barack Obama: Master Manipulator of the Constitution

What Obama is doing now is what a great football running back or play caller does – he finds the “seams” in the defense and runs plays against them. On amnesty and his Iran nuclear weapons deal, Obama is running plays against his political and cultural opposition by finding “seams” in the Constitution, and using them to accomplish political and policy goals that the constitutional system of checks and balances would never otherwise empower him to achieve.

Sen. Lindsey Graham's Bizarre Military Coup To Increase Defense Spending

Especially in the context of Obama’s abuse of power the notion that a president can use the military to impose his will upon Congress cannot be allowed to enter the debate. Republicans, who claim to be the party of limited government constitutional conservatives, should have booed Sen. Graham out of the room, even if it was intended as a “joke.” And frankly, we’re not buying the idea Graham’s comment about using the military to force Congress to increase military spending was a “joke,” it was more like a revealing look at the inner man.

Judicial Watch Asks Federal Court to Reopen Lawsuit Seeking Information on Top Clinton Aide

Citing misconduct and misrepresentation by Hillary Clinton and the State Department, and following up on revelations of the secret email accounts created by Secretary Clinton and other top State Department officials, Judicial Watch announced that it has asked a federal court to reopen a closed Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) case that sought records about Huma Abedin, who had been Deputy Chief of Staff to Secretary State Hillary Clinton. Abedin, caught whispering in Hillary Clinton's ear in the photograph below, was allowed to transition to the status of "special government employee" and make at least $355,000 in outside income working for Teneo, a shadowy firm already the subject of reporting by investigative journalists at the New York Times.
