Attack on Ted Cruz: Can the GOP’s Capitol Hill “Leaders” Get Any Lower?

Giving Aid And Comfort To The Enemy: The Best Argument Against Obama’s Iran Nuke Deal

Trump’s Rise and the Tea Party: Rooted in the Failed Leadership of the GOP

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.

Ted Cruz Issues Manifesto For Conservative Populism

Friday, Senator Ted Cruz gave a powerful floor speech shining a light on the corrupt deal struck by Senate Republican leadership to allow the reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank. The establishment media made a big deal out of Cruz calling-out Mitch McConnell as a liar, but the real history-making aspect of Cruz's speech was the manifesto for conservative populism buried in the truth-telling about Mitch McConnell's duplicity.

Bandow: Chinese Repression Threatens Economic Dynamism and Political Stability

While Chinese from all walks of life are comfortable telling foreigners what they think about their lives, leaders, and nation, sharing those beliefs with other Chinese is problematic.

It’s Not About Trump – It’s About The Failures Of The Republican Establishment

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
What the Republican establishment, and the Washington political elite in general can’t seem to grasp is Trump’s support is coming from the same place in American politics that the 2009 Tea Party movement came from -- the failure of the Republican establishment to stand for its own principles.

GOP “Leaders” Trying To Lie Their Way Through Another Crisis

While lying about the budget and spending is one of the easiest of these transgressions to prove, the GOP “leadership” routinely engages in what one might call “policy lies.”  The latest of these “policy lies” is that, in the wake of the national outrage over the murder of Kate Steinle, the House Republican leadership has any intention of ending the illegal and unconstitutional “sanctuary” policies of Democratic cities and states that purport to nullify federal immigration laws.

Are You Patronizing A Baby Killing Company?

There’s nothing “charitable” about killing babies and trafficking in their organs and tissue. We here are CHQ believe it is time to call to account any business or charitable foundation that supports Planned Parenthood, and especially the ghoulish practice of trafficking in human tissue and organs. We urge you to join us in boycotting these companies and in letting the corporate management and shareholders know exactly why you refuse to buy their products or patronize their businesses by signing our open letter to the management of these companies and foundations. We also urge you to sign our separate letter to Congress demanding that the Republican leadership actually follow through and conduct an investigation rather than engage in their usual “go nowhere” political posturing.

Foolish Europeans Bail Out Improvident Greeks, Again

Politicians: “You’re either for Americans, or you’re not.”

“This was our family’s 9/11 terrorist attack by a foreign invader, whether you want to recognize it or whether you do not… Americans are dying daily at the hands of criminals that we don’t even know are here… You cannot stand by and ignore us… Your silence speaks volumes. You’re either for Americans, or you’re not.” 

Ms. Laura Wilkerson of Pearland, Texas, Mother of Josh Wilkerson, killed by an illegal alien

Ted Cruz stood with the victims of illegal alien crime and their families when he introduced "Kate's Law," what will other politicians do?

Kasich Gets In Presidential Race, Conservatives Skeptical

What we heard in John Kasich’s announcement speech was more reminiscent of George H.W. Bush and his failed "kinder and gentler" Big Government Republicanism, than of Reagan's successful conservatism. But as the popular Governor of Ohio, a “must win” state for Republican presidential candidates, and with a strong conservative record on spending and fiscal issues, Governor Kasich is well positioned to make a run for the White House.

Gohmert Outclasses Trump, Gets It Right On McCain

"As far as Sen. McCain, I have nothing but respect and great sympathy for the pain and suffering he endured … but that doesn't mean that you get to become a senator and ruin the country," Rep. Louie Gohmert said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV. And for those who are inclined to forget just how much damage McCain has done, especially with regard to the Middle East, here's a reminder.

David Jolly – Bad in the House, Wrong for the Senate

“David Jolly is a big-spending liberal and former lobbyist who can’t win re-election to his House seat, so he’s taking a page out of Charlie Crist’s handbook,” said Club for Growth President David McIntosh. We agree; David Jolly is bad in the House, and he's wrong for the Senate. That's why CHQ endorsed Rep. Ron DeSantis to succeed Marco Rubio as Florida's next United States Senator.

Cruz Scores Bridenstine Endorsement

Ted Cruz scored a major coup over the weekend when he picked-up the endorsement of principled limited government Oklahoma Congressman Jim Bridenstine. Bridenstine says "Beating Hillary Clinton requires a Republican nominee who will energize all elements of the Republican Party: fiscal conservatives, national security conservatives, values voters, and constitutional conservatives" and Ted Cruz is the candidate to do it.
