As principled conservative Texas Republican Jeb Hensarling battles to kill this corrupt vestige of the New Deal, by using the legalized corruption of bribing Members of Congress by exchanging votes, Capitol Hill’s establishment Republican leaders plan to save the illegal corruption endemic to the Ex-Im Bank. You can’t make this stuff up.
Who is the greatest threat to liberty under the Constitution and American exceptionalism? The powerless Nancy Pelosi who presides ineffectively over the smallest Democratic House minority in over 80 years, or Republican Speaker John Boehner and Republican Senate Majority Mitch McConnell who have worked tirelessly to stymie conservative efforts to stop Obama’s lawlessness, surrendered congressional power to a lawless president and personally attacked conservatives who objected?
The NSA's bulk collection of telephone records violates the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which protects the country's citizens against unreasonable searches and seizures, Senator Rand Paul said. "I see no reason you can't have security and the Constitution at the same time," said Paul. "There's no reason why we can't catch terrorists like we catch other bad people in our society, by using the Constitution."
In a powerfully argued op-ed in yesterday’s National Review Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama, one of Capitol Hill’s leading limited government constitutional conservatives and the de facto leader of the growing “populist conservative” movement, spoke in support of keeping the Patriot Act, and especially its controversial Section 215 data collection program unchanged saying, "it should not be more difficult to investigate a terrorist plot than check fraud." Senator Sessions’ conclusion – that it ought not be more difficult to investigate terrorism than it is to investigate a common felony case was echoed by the Editors of National Review, who posted a complimentary editorial supporting the renewal of the Patriot Act.
As the clock ticks toward the June 30 expiration of the Ex-Im Bank’s charter, the beneficiaries of this corrupt remnant of the New Deal have started issuing warning that they would move production overseas if Congress doesn’t reauthorize their hand out. Please join the leaders of over 50 conservative organizations by signing the conservative letter to Congress demanding that your Representative and Senators let the Export - Import Bank expire on June 30, 2015.
Senator Mike Lee's S. 356 the "Electronic Communications Privacy Act Amendments Act of 2015" fails to stop one of the most egregious abuses of the 4th Amendment; "administrative subpoenas" allowing attorneys general and various state bureaucracies, plus the DEA, NSA, EPA, EEOC, SEC, FTC, etc. to issue their own judge-less warrants without oath and affirmation before a neutral judge or magistrate, and without probable cause, to get our emails. Please sign our letter to Senator Lee urging him to change S. 356 to abolish judge-less administrative subpoenas that violate the letter and spirit of the 4th Amendment.
Embattled ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos has a friend in Republican presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio. Why? Maybe it is because it turns out the main topic of several of Rubio’s past interviews with Stephanopoulos has been – you guessed it – comprehensive immigration reform.
The Patriot Act is the frontline in the war between citizens and their rights under the Fourth Amendment to be free from government intrusion into their private affairs and government’s insatiable appetite for information merged with the growth of the technology to acquire that information. We urge you to contact your Senators and urge them to join Senator Rand Paul in supporting the Fourth Amendment Preservation and Protection Act as an alternative to the reauthorization of the Patriot Act. The Capitol switchboard is 1-866-220-0044, call your Senator today.
The Fourth Amendment is one of the most important arrows in the quiver against bullying big government. Conservatives have a window to influence how the Fourth Amendment will be defined in ways that protect freedoms, yet maintain security, just as the Founders envisioned the purposes of government.
20 House Republican voted on the Floor to allow illegal aliens into the US armed forces at the expense of experienced and committed combat veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan. These 20 “Republicans,” and if there was ever an example of a Republican In Name Only or RINO it is these 20, deserve a conservative primary challenge in 2016 and we stand ready to help their challengers in any way we can.
Washington’s determination to defend much of the globe has made the U.S. an international sucker, especially vulnerable to manipulation by supposed friends. The Gulf States want Washington to issue security guarantees to protect corrupt gerontocracies and monarchies. It is hard to imagine a worse idea than committing America to directly intervene in conflicts irrelevant to American security on behalf of nations which share none of America’s most cherished values and which are able to defend themselves.
The Congressional Research Service confirms a global trade pact will supersede U.S. law, surrendering American sovereignty and subjecting the United States to international tribunals dominated by our political and economic competitors. We urge CHQ readers to call their Senators and Representative (the Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to demand they vote “NO” on TPA and “NO” on the Trans Pacific Partnership unless and until their provisions guarantee there is no surrender of American sovereignty, the deal is made public and disinterested studies of the economic benefits to American workers and quality of life are conducted.
In his book TAKEOVER CHQ Chairman Richard A. Viguerie asked "What would make Republican candidates for President agree to a debate moderated by George Stephanopoulos, the former press secretary of a Democratic president, or the likes of CNN’s notoriously liberal host Anderson Cooper?" Mr. Viguerie concluded that besides rank stupidity, it is hard to think of a reason. But the Republican Party’s DC insiders seem genuinely disappointed that their buddy George Stephanopoulos – whom they see at all the nice parties in Georgetown – is not a “journalist,” but a shill for the Clintons and their partisan Democratic agenda.
Pulitzer Prize winner, and 2005 Bradley Prize Recipient, George F. Will will preside at the prestigious Washington ceremony honoring Hillsdale College President Larry P. Arnn; University of Virginia Professor James W. Ceaser; AHA Foundation founder Ayaan Hirsi Ali; and Chairman, Institute for the Study of War, General Jack Keane, U.S. Army, Retired. The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation is the Nation's preeminent foundation devoted to strengthening American democratic capitalism and the institutions, principles and values that sustain and nurture it.
Rand Paul is right. TPA and TPP may have many positive economic benefits to America’s 21st Century economy – but how can anyone know or make an informed decision in the atmosphere of secrecy and deception fostered by Barack Obama and his establishment Republican facilitators on Capitol Hill? We urge CHQ readers to call their Senators and Representative (the Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to demand they vote “NO” on TPA and “NO” on the Trans Pacific Partnership unless and until their provisions are made public and disinterested studies of the economic benefits to American workers and quality of life are conducted.
The Wall Street Journal attacked conservatives opposing the Trade Promotion Authority or "fast track" bill as “No-Growth Republicans,” but the clear winner in the battle so far has been Senator Jeff Sessions, who has deftly managed to build a coalition of conservatives and Democrats around the sensible idea that if the government is going to manage trade it should be managed in a way that benefits American workers, which it clearly hasn’t been for the past two decades in Sessions’ analysis.
Contending approaches as to what to do about renewing Section 215 of the Patriot Act appear to have split liberty-minded members of Congress with some, like Sen. Mike Lee, supporting the "USA Freedom Act," while others, led by Sen. Rand Paul, support the 'Fourth Amendment Preservation and Protection Act." Other Republicans, such as Senators Marco Rubio and Mitch McConnell support a "clean" renewal of the Patriot Act. Update: In a bipartisan vote of 338-88, the House on Wednesday afternoon passed the USA Freedom Act.
The issue of how Obama's fraudulent "refugee" resettlement program facilitates the Muslim colonization of America has finally gotten the attention of the chairman of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security, Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, who wrote the Department of State demanding that it halt the resettlement of refugees in the city of Spartanburg in his district. But there's much more to the story and we've got the details in today's special report on the Muslim colonization of America.
