Local GOP Committee Strikes Back – Votes To Censure RINO Congressman

In a sober, frank, open and honest discussion of Rep. Denver Riggelman's voting record the Rappahannock County Republican Committee voted to censure the freshman GOP Representative for voting to undermine President Trump’s program of "American jobs for American workers" and undermining Trump’s pledge to stay out of other countries’ civil wars and to refrain from military commitments not clearly tied to our own national security.

Trump and his GOP challengers

Byron York, Washington Examiner

President Trump has real reason to worry about losing in the general election. In the RealClearPolitics average of polls, his job approval rating stands at 43.0%, against a 53.9% disapproval rating. Even though Trump won in 2016 with a high personal disapproval rating, there's no assurance the states that gave him the election by narrow margins last time — Florida, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin — will go for him again next year. But a Trump defeat would be the result of Trump himself, and not his GOP opponents. Separately or as a whole, today's challengers are simply not on the level of the Kennedys, Reagan, or Buchanan.

Riggelman Betrays Virginia Workers With Immigration Stands

After decades of stagnant wages (due in some measure to pressure from illegal alien labor) American workers in the construction industry are now receiving a much-deserved raise, however, by co-sponsoring H.R. 1740 Rep. Denver Riggelman wants to dilute the construction labor market by adding foreign workers thereby depressing the wages of American workers in one of the few totally domestic labor markets.

Constitutional Conservatives Recruiting Candidate To Run Against RINO Rep. Denver Riggelman

An informally constituted grassroots coalition is apparently serious about vetting and promoting one candidate from among RINO Riggelman’s potential challengers in the expectation that they can identify a candidate who can not only defeat Riggleman for the GOP nomination in Virginia's fifth congressional district, but go on to win in November 2020.

GOP List Of Shame On Budget Vote

From our perspective the spending deal was no victory, but another “fear The Turtle” moment in which the not-so-subtle big spending hand of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell manipulated the White House and the House Republican Leadership into once again abandoning any pretense of fiscal restraint.

Border Wall Big Win, But Not Fundamental

President Trump and conservatives won a big victory in the Supreme Court’s Wall ruling and in the otherwise disastrous spending bill, but we must be prepared to renew the immigration fight when Congress returns in September and takes-up the next round of spending bills.

What Do You Call A One-Legged Stool?

Principles matter in elections, and with all four legs of the 2016 big table coalition working full throttle on his behalf Donald Trump is a shoo-in for reelection, but a stool or table supported only by the one leg of Donald Trump’s outsized personality is likely to crash on Election Day.

Conservatives Oppose Trillion Dollar Spending Boondoggle

The Trump administration projected in March that this year’s deficit will hit $1.1 trillion, up from last year’s deficit of $779 billion – a figure comparable to the Obama-era deficit. After months of urging congressional and administration negotiators to prioritize reductions in spending, the Conservative Action Project has come out in opposition to this irresponsible bipartisan budget deal.

Trump Sucked Into McConnell Spending Betrayal

The voters who want fiscal responsibility who powered the Tea Party Wave and the Trump Movement haven’t gone away. While they may grudgingly support President Trump in 2020 against a Far-Left progressive Democrat, congressional Republicans who think they can spend their way to reelection will face the wrath of those voters.

Mitt Romney Is A Virtue Signaling Twit

President Trump’s economic policies are working too well for Romney to credibly criticize them and his border policy is too popular with the Republican Party’s base to risk criticizing. So, all Romney has left is to make Trump himself the object of his disapproval and so keep the Republican establishment’s anti-Trump resistance alive.

Texas Retirements May Bring New Conservative Stars To Congress

If Texas elects to Congress a slate of new conservative leaders it will be in no small measure due to the efforts of conservative Senator Ted Cruz. Cruz, facing his own reelection campaign this year, has still found time to make endorsements and campaign for candidates in at least four hotly contested Texas GOP Congressional primaries.

The Conservative Cause Is Bigger Than Any Two Men

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Looking toward the 2018 primaries, the rupture of relations between Trump and Bannon has created a temporary leadership vacuum in the conservative – populist movement, so it is up to each of us to step up and do what we can to fill that vacuum; the need for top quality conservative candidates for every office is too great, our goals are too important, and our mission is too urgent for this battle of personalities to slow us, let alone to stop us.

How Conservatives Can Make 2018 Better Than 2017

It’s the Primaries, stupid! In most states every office from Governor to precinct committeeman in your precinct will be on the ballot in the 2018 primary.

List Of House Republicans In Search Of A Primary Opponent

At this pivotal moment in U.S. history, when our leaders ought to be standing stronger and fighting harder than ever for us - they've chosen to wave a white flag in the face of government overreach and overspending. The only thing that gets their attention is a primary! Every one of them is guilty until proven innocent! Primary Them! Phyllis Schlafly, December 2015.

Trump Joins CHQ Refuses To Back Ryan And McCain

In a blow to the reelection bids of establishment Republicans Speaker Paul Ryan and Senator John McCain Republican nominee for President Donald Trump has pointedly refused to endorse either of them.

Don’t Call The Game Before The Clock Runs Out

What Trump is demanding is that the referees call the game in the middle of the fourth quarter; we disagree and think the teams should play until the delegates vote and the clock runs out at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.
