Outsiders vs. Insiders: Only in Trump’s America could showing too much pride get you in trouble

As long as there are people who look down on others for what they believe there will be conflict in this country. Whether it’s Chick-fil-A’s stance on marriage or Trump’s view of international trade, there’s no sign of a ceasefire in the war to control the cultural narrative. We should all be prepared to battle.

The Conservative Case for Corey Stewart Is Clear As a Bell

I see Tim Kaine and other Democrats as dangerous to America’s future, and harmful to people of all races. I see the unconstitutional acts of the deep state, the national debt, and the degradation of our Judeo-Christian values as far more dangerous than anything Corey Stewart could do as senator, if one were to believe the worst things said about him.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: When did Kim Jong-un supplant Donald Trump as master negotiator?

There’s still room to find fault with Trump on his handling of the summit with Kim Jong-un and other matters, but he deserves the benefit of the doubt for beginning the process. Along with credit, Trump needs leeway to get the job done -- perhaps it’s time his GOP critics gave him some.

Money in Politics: Everyone Complains About It, but Every Political Movement Needs It

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Everyone complains about the role of money in politics, but nobody’s figured out how to run a political movement or party without money.  Get it from lobbyists?  Special interests?  Billionaires?  In this excerpt from Chapter 3 of America's Right Turn by Richard A. Viguerie and David Franke we explain how conservatives in the 1960s figured out a better way.

Liberal Doctors Claim Gun Ownership Is A Disease

Yesterday, the American Medical Association passed a series of gun-related resolutions to fight what it claims is a public health crisis. And what exactly is the “public health crisis" the physicians want to fight? Apparently, it is gun ownership.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Should Congress break social media’s stranglehold on free speech?

Social media has changed our world – and perhaps it is time to consider having Congress take some measure of oversight on businesses like Google and Facebook to ensure our First Amendment rights are preserved. The Founding Fathers would approve.

Behind The Scenes Shifts In American Foreign Policy Led To Summit Success

President Trump said before the meeting, “It’s a process” and so far, the results of the Trump – Kim Summit have been encouraging enough to call the summit a success, however, it remains to be seen if the behind the scenes changes in U.S. policy outlined here will ultimately result in the desired goal of a nuclear-free North Korea.

The Looming Amnesty Disaster For Republicans

Speaker Ryan has put in motion an amnesty vote that is bad news for those who prioritize national sovereignty and border security. Members either will have to vote on the discharge petition’s series of amnesty bills or, absent that, Ryan’s consensus proposal, which is likely to be amnesty-lite with negligible border security.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: To Trump and Kim the Art of the Deal means no more war in the Far East

Trump’s meeting with Kim Jong-un brought a terrific new prospect for peace and cooperation in an extremely volatile part of the world. Especially gratifying is Trump’s appreciation for the necessity of avoiding war at all costs. The Art of the Deal is alive and well.

How President Donald Trump Can Make the Most of the Summit

CHQ contributor Doug Bandow offers eight suggestions about how President Trump can make the most of the summit with North Korea's dictator Kim Jong Un, including ending the U.S. “hostile policy” toward North Korea in return for Pyongyang’s commitment to denuclearize.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Donald Trump’s GOP will never be the same – anyone miss the old one?

When Donald Trump was elected no one predicted draining the swamp would be easy or that everything he did would be popular – even with members of his own party. But change comes slowly and we’re heading in a positive direction. The GOP will never be the same – and that’s a good thing.

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Virginia Delegate Nick Freitas is the conservative choice for the Republican nomination to take on Virginia’s incumbent Far Left Democrat Senator Tim Kaine, a former Chairman of the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s running mate in the 2016 presidential election.

Should Conservatives Thank Mitch McConnell For Doing His Job?

The President’s call for Border Security legislation was not on Mitch McConnell’s list of planned items to complete during the work days recovered by cancelling the August recess. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) we urge CHQ readers and friends to call Mitch McConnell today to demand that the border wall and border security be part of the Senate’s agenda during its August session.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: No one on earth is more prepared to meet Kim Jong-un than Pres. Trump

No one can say for sure what will happen when Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un talk this week, though the importance of the occasion and the fact two enemies are meeting should not be discounted. Trump may not have spent hours poring over books – but he’ll be ready. Count on it.

Endorsement: Mary Jones in Virginia's Second Congressional District Republican Primary

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
RINO Rep. Scott Taylor is an arrogant self-promoter. Taylor never seems to miss a chance to go on TV to push for amnesty for illegal aliens, and to trash conservatives and President Trump. It is past time to send him home. We urge our friends and fellow conservatives in Virginia Congressional District Two to vote Mary Jones in the June 12 Republican Primary.

We urge our friends and CHQ readers in Northern Virginia’s Congressional District Ten to turn out on Tuesday, June 12, to vote for Shak Hill for Congress.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: In America’s right vs. left culture war, choose the biggest weapons

The broader American culture war will continue as long as the left puts forth celebrities and athletes as spokespeople for their point-of-view. Politics is a long game and Republicans appear to have shown up to play; toss Donald Trump the ball and watch as the scoreboard lights up.
