Bringing Drug Manufacturing Back To America May Be Tougher Than You Think

Back on January 11, 2017, before he was even inaugurated, then-President-elect Donald Trump laid out his ambitions for the US pharma industry. He called for reversing the trend of the past decade – which was to outsource manufacturing overseas -- and a return to domestic production. Trump was right of course, but Congress, more intent on destroying his presidency than helping America, failed to act on legislation that might have helped and the industry has remained focused on reducing costs.

Fake News Kills

Last week, we learned the only thing more contagious than COVID-19 is fake news. The mainstream media is desperate to turn the coronavirus scare into President Donald Trump’s Hurricane Katrina. What does that mean? It means they’re motivated to overhype this story simply so they can pile as much pressure as possible onto the president.

Coronavirus, Moral Knowledge And Social Distancing

We must each act upon the moral knowledge that we have an individual responsibility to help prevent the spread of this new disease. What has happened in Italy shows that less-than-urgent appeals to the public by the government to slightly change habits regarding social interactions aren’t enough when the terrible outcomes they are designed to prevent are not yet apparent; when they become evident, it’s generally too late to act.

Trish Regan Show Pulled For Stating The Obvious?

Trish Regan’s show was pulled for stating the obvious: That Democrats and Leftwing media shills were fanning the flames of coronavirus hysteria in order to damage the President politically. Fox won't admit it, but that is the assumption shared by a large percentage of the Trish Regan audience. Plus the phony outrage of various “progressive” shills clues us that we are right to believe Ms. Regan was taken off the air because she said the Left wants to use the epidemic to damage President Trump.

Obama’s Ghost Haunts Coronavirus Response

“The Obama administration made a decision on testing that turned out to be very detrimental to what we’re doing, and we undid that decision a few days ago so that the testing can take place in a much more accurate and rapid fashion,” President Donald Trump said at a meeting with airline executives on March 4 at the White House.

Responses to the Economic Consequences of the Coronavirus from Heritage Foundation Experts

Virtually every interest group in Washington will attempt to exploit the coronavirus crisis to further its own aims. The aphorism “Never let a good crisis go to waste” exists for a reason. Heritage Foundation policy experts say Congress should not allow the crisis to be exploited either by special interests seeking bailouts or those seeking policy aims that are only tangentially related to the crisis.

A Rock in the Storm: The Heritage Foundation's Principles of Conservatism

Tyler O'Neill, PJ Media

The Heritage Foundations's True North principles are extremely important. They set forth a guiding star for conservatism, a rock in the storm of ideological battles raging on the right today. Contrary to the media narrative, conservatism is not falling apart. While some seem to have abandoned the three-legged stool of social conservatism, fiscal conservatism, and a strong national defense, the Heritage Foundation and others have refused to budge. For two years in a row, the Heritage Foundation has been ranked the number 1 most effective think tank for policy impact. The True North principles will only bolster that impact.

Google Discrimination Against Conservatives No Longer A ‘Myth’

“You can’t trust the human judgment of Google’s Trust and Safety team,” said a source at Google. If that didn’t come through loud and clear from Google internal memos, the plain words of Google employees confirms it and will send a chill down the spine of every person in any country who values the principles of free expression, religious liberty and freedom of association.

Jim DeMint moves on to new endeavors after Heritage Foundation

Philip Wegmann, Washington Examiner

More than biding his time, DeMint has been planning a wholescale political revolution by completely nonstandard political means. This is significant and shouldn't be chalked up to simple cynicism. Republicans won't fix things. And though not for a lack of effort, neither will the conservatives at the Heritage Foundation or the populist in the White House. Something new is needed, something DeMint dreamed up in his month off.

Take Us Out Mr. President

We urge CHQ readers to use this link to contact the White House. Tell President Trump it is time to fulfill his campaign promise to protect American workers by taking us out of Obama’s unconstitutional Paris climate deal.

The Heritage Foundation And Jim DeMint: Both Vital To The Conservative Movement

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
I was there, so to speak, at the beginning of the Heritage Foundation and what many people in Washington seem to have forgotten is that Heritage was founded to be a movement conservative force independent of the Republican Party and establishment Republican leaders.

RIP Kate O’Beirne

What made Kate O'Beirne so effective was the strength of her convictions and her ability to craft a brilliant argument. She believed that a more conservative America was a better America for everyone. And it was impossible to persuade her otherwise.

Harvard Attacks CHQ as “Biased”

Harvard University's library website now features a new page titled, "Fake News, Misinformation, and Propaganda." And ConservativeHQ.com and other conservative and right-leaning organizations, think tanks and news portals make-up the core of the list.

Establishment Republicans Eat Their Own

Two establishment Republican Senators have defected and plan to vote NO on the nomination of Betsy DeVos for Education Secretary. Their defection is truly bizarre because Ms. DeVos, at least on the surface, looks like President Trump's most establishment-friendly Cabinet nominee.

Montenegro Doesn’t Belong In NATO

Montenegro is a quaint, but geopolitically irrelevant. Balkan state. If Montenegro's admission to NATO is approved by the full Senate, Americans will have yet another essentially useless defense dependent, this one a corrupt, long-time gangster state.

Trump vs the Cult of Political Correctness

When we look at this week’s protests during the Trump -- Pence inauguration and their potential for violence we need to see most protesters for what they are; victims of Far-Left propaganda and the cult of political correctness.

‘The Voice Of The Silent Majority’ For A Half Century, Lee Edwards Has Lived Conservative History Like None Other

Christopher Bedford, The Daily Caller

Lee Edwards is not just an historian of the conservative movement, he’s someone who helped shape it. Goldwater, National Review, Young Americans for Freedom, Bill Buckley, Russell Kirk, Human Events, he's been part of it all.

The Heritage Foundation is Trump’s shadow transition team

Katie Glueck, Politico

“We’re just thrilled with what we see from the transition, it gets better every day. To the extent Heritage is involved in it, hats off to Heritage,” said Richard Viguerie. “Conservatives would expect Heritage to be at the center of anything that’s important to dealing with conservative issues, causes, the movement.”

Kevin Cirilli, The Hill

In a more than 7,200 word essay for National Affairs journal, Heritage Action CEO Michael Needham urged the new Repub. members of Congress to stand firm in their conservative ideals ahead of the 2016 presidential election cycle.
