Conservative Leaders Oppose the Nomination of Judge Halil Ozerden

The toll free Capitol Switchboard (1-866-220-0044). Call your Senators today and urge them to vote NO on the confirmation of Judge Halil Ozerden to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. We also invite CHQ readers to call President Trump via the White House comment line (1-202-456-1111) and urge him to withdraw this ill-advised nomination.

The Squad Aims To Make Pro-Life Democrats Extinct In 2020

In today’s “woke” Democratic Party non-conformity is not tolerated, especially on abortion, so any pro-life Democrat is bound to draw an opponent. Such is the case with pro-life Democrat Rep. Dan Lipinski of Illinois, whose Far-Left challenger has just been endorsed by Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Far-Left Senator Elizabeth Warren.

The Wisdom of Federalism

William Murchison, The American Spectator

When it works right, the good old Union —our Union — is a marketplace serving innumerable constituencies with innumerable needs and outlooks. State and local governments exist chiefly to assess and address these needs and outlooks: such and such medicine for you, such and such for him, according to the political dispositions on view in the electorate. Free, uncoerced choice in political contexts, we nevertheless sense, has much to be said for it, whether rightly or wrongly exercised. You pays your money, as the saying goes, and you takes your choice. There the fun starts — or the folly.

Kamala Harris Is An Anchor Baby, Not A ‘Natural Born Citizen’ Of The United States

From our perspective, the circumstances of Kamal Harris’s birth were a form of birth tourism where the child is born in the geographic confines of the United States for the sole purpose of obtaining American citizenship and then whisked off to another country, only to return when and if being an American is economically advantageous.

The MSM And Four Anti-American Congresswomen

Being an “American” requires more than simply being born here or otherwise qualifying for United States citizenship – it requires allegiance to a certain and quite definite set of principles set forth in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Representative Omar and her posse all took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, but we see no evidence that they and their media defenders actually hold any allegiance to its principles.

Conservatives Put On The Brass Knuckles

“What I want to do with the Article III Project is take off the gloves, put on the brass knuckles and fight back,” Mike Davis, an Iowa native who was the chief nominations counsel for Senator Charles E. Grassley, told Carl Hulse of the New York Times.

The Ballot Box Jihad

We urge our conservative Democrat friends in Michigan, Virginia, Florida, Texas, California, Pennsylvania and other states where primary elections are imminent, to take this warning of the danger of nominating and electing anti-constitutional liberty Muslim candidates seriously and to only vote for candidates who believe in and will fight for the foundational principles of our Constitutional Republic.

The World Doesn’t Care About Groupthink

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Free-market constitutional societies depend not so much on natural resources as on their own system of free markets, meritocratic and enlightened government, and free inquiry. Americans usually are the most creative and resourceful when they are written off as has-beens and doomed — as we saw when they went from being a hobbled oil importer to OPEC’s greatest nightmare. Among the political classes, both being slurred or slurring others of like kind in disgusting fashion is no big deal. Apparently, it is just the usual foul water that such kindred fish always swim in.

How Liberal Transgender Ideology Has Warped The Right To Privacy

According to transgender ideology, now affirmed by a federal judge, you have no right to visual bodily privacy. Your nakedness, long believed, next to your thoughts, to be the ultimate private realm is no longer private and your “visual bodily privacy” must now give way to the demands of transgender ideology.

A Bad Idea For Ohio And A Terrible Idea For America

No Republican has ever been elected President without Ohio, and Ohio has furnished eight Presidents with Ohio roots – all Republicans. So why the Buckeye State’s Republican-controlled legislature and Governor would want to dilute their state’s Electoral College votes via the Democrat proposal to bypass the Electoral College is a complete mystery to us.

Tutoring Eric Holder on American Greatness

J. Christian Adams, PJ Media

America is an idea, a great idea, that all are created in the image of God as free. That idea, not always perfectly executed, transformed the world. Along the way, it also limited government. The freedoms enshrined in the Constitution restrain the power of government. Government cannot act the way progressives want because the Constitution stands in the way. After decades of trying to redefine the notion of freedom in the courts, Holder and his gang have hit a Trump wall, where judicial nominees no longer subscribe to the utopian view of the Constitution.

Conservative Grassroots Send Sen. Roy Blunt A Message About The Wall

Sen. Roy Blunt of Missouri, the fourth-ranking Republican in the Senate, was the only member of GOP leadership to vote for the Democrats' resolution of disapproval intended to block President Trump's emergency declaration. Now the Christian County, Missouri, Republican Central Committee has disinvited Blunt from their annual Lincoln - Trump dinner.

Free Judge Jeanine

Judge Jeanine Pirro’s show, “Justice with Judge Jeanine” did not air Saturday on Fox after the Judge, during her March 9 show, questioned whether Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Muslim who wears a hajib, adheres to Shariah law, a set of Muslim laws and doctrines that are antithetical to the Constitution of the United States.

Far Left Anti-Electoral College Plan Building Momentum

Democrats have long opposed the Electoral College because with overwhelming margins of victory in high-population states like California they could dominate future presidential elections based on the popular vote, so they have concocted a plan to try to bypass the constitutional amendment process.

President Trump And Texas Governor Greg Abbott Can Use The Constitution To Build The Wall

Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution provides that the United States shall protect each state against invasion and domestic violence. With 369,000 illegal aliens arrested along the Texas – Mexico border last year and over 189,000 crimnal aliens arrested in Texas during the past decade Gov. Abbott has a textbook case for a request for assistance to repell the invaison and violence.

Auditing Our Auditors

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

The framers of the Constitution set in place a brilliant series of legislative, executive, and judicial checks and balances to thwart the abuse of power by the powerful. Their pessimistic take on human nature was that all power corrupts. Inevitably, elites will insist that they should not be subject to the very rules they enforce on others. With Mueller, the question is not whether he should investigate possible Russian collusion in the 2016 election, but whether we need a special, special counsel to oversee the conduct of Mueller’s team itself.

What will a post-constitutional America look like?

Dr. William Scott Magill, WND

The leftist collective, which demands all residents participate in this national self-destruction, have in a matter of just a few years flipped the narrative of American exceptionalism on its head. The “unacceptable” election of Donald Trump, through the intercession of Divine Providence, saved America from an envisioned police state that would have been the death knell for our once free and open society. Now it comes down to individuals – each one of us. Will you fight the good fight for freedom, or just complain as America is swallowed into the dark and dismal sordid abyss of socialism?

New Poll: Conservatives See Democrats Working for Minority Rule Through Supreme Court

An almost unanimous 99% of those responding to a neww FedUp PAC poll say that liberal Democrats “rely on the courts to overrule the majority” of Americans and that they oppose any judge who “would rule impartially according to the Constitution and the laws.”

Protecting intellectual property

Jenny Beth Martin and Thomas Massie, Washington Times

The U.S. patent system and the constitutional protections of intellectual property undergirding our patent system have played a vital role in fueling America’s innovation. But the constitutional rights that have made our nation so successful and prosperous have come under assault over the last decade, as a destructive effort now underway systematically chips away at intellectual property rights.

109 Conservative Leaders Demand Prompt Kavanaugh Supreme Court Confirmation

In a statement released through the Conservative Action Project 109 leaders of the conservative movement demanded that the Senate promptly confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh so the Supreme Court will have a full complement of nine sitting justices when the next term of the Court begins on October 1, 2018.
