Mitch McConnell

Viguerie and Shirley: Trump’s next battle: McConnell and the GOP Swamp

Richard Viguerie and Craig Shirley, Fox News

The battle between Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump and is only going to intensify. When Donald Trump surprised the world by winning the 2016 election, the establishment was not going to let go of power without a fight. What’s worse is that they failed to learn anything from the sweeping loss of the House of Representatives in 2018.  McConnell and his weak-kneed colleagues are again failing to understand the mood of the American people. They want a fighter for the policies he promised to deliver. Those not wearing their MAGA hats and stand in the way of those promises are likely to come out on the wrong side of this fight.

#NeverTrump GOP Senators Messing With Donald Trump Jr.

Senate Intel Committe Chairman Richard Burr, not generally thought of the sharpest knife in the Senate’s GOP drawer, apparently decided to give the Democrats, including his odious Vice Chairman Mark Warner (D-VA), one more opportunity to grandstand for the cameras and to set a perjury trap for Donald Trump Jr.

Trump To Address Most Important Immigration Issue

We believe President Trump’s willingness to take on the assimilation issue comes from his own deep sense of patriotism and love of country, and his own family’s immigrant story. We are 100 percent in favor of a strong and effective assimilation program being included in any immigration reform plan put forth by the President.

The Turtle Wants To Move On… To What?

Conservatives applaud Majority Leader McConnell’s words of support for President Trump and for his demand that Democrats end the obstruction and publicly funded conspiracy theory propagation. The problem we see is that McConnell has not specified what action he plans to take to move the Trump agenda forward.

Conservatives Balking At $2 Trillion Infrastructure Plan

President Trump campaigned on increasing infrastructure spending, but we see a carefully laid Democrat minefield looming in this latest “agreement” with plenty of political downside to the President and Republican 2020 candidates if he proposes raising taxes or blows up the deficit before the 2020 election.

McConnell Ready To Betray Trump on Spending

White House officials are leery of where budget talks between McConnell and Pelosi may lead, noting that the last bipartisan deal reached in early 2018 boosted spending by $300 billion over two years. Conservative policy experts are urging Trump not to trust McConnell to put together a spending deal that wouldn’t blow up the deficit.

Mexican Military Now Patrolling North Of The Border, US Sovereignty Violated Repeatedly

While two American soldiers were parked south of the border fence, but north of the Rio Grande riverbed, placing them “appropriately in U.S. territory,” five or six Mexican soldiers approached with FX-05 Xiuhcoatl rifles, ordered them out of their vehicle and disarmed one of the Americans. This is just the latest in more than 500 Mexican military border violations in the past decade.

GOP Setting Itself Up For Failure… Again

Republicans didn’t lose the House and a number of winnable Senate races in 2018 because they didn’t know how to use smartphone apps to run a precinct operation. They lost because they failed to produce on the Trump agenda and failed to brand the Democrats as dangerous anti-constitutional socialists.

Mr. President Close The Border

More than 100,000 illegal aliens are poised to cross the US border into Texas — a crisis threatening to overwhelm facilities  for housing asylum seekers. There is no question that President Trump has the legal authority to close the border; that has been done by previous presidents with no one questioning that authority.

14 House Republicans Stab America In The Back

Clearly the appropriations clause is not a suicide pact. If 1/3 of a million Red Chinese were poised to cross our southern border the President would have the power to act if Congress dithered because he has the constitutional duty and authority to act as Commander-in-Chief to protect the sovereignty of the United States and the lives and property of its citizens.

The Paul Ryan Border Disaster Forces Trump Veto

Keeping the focus of his veto message on the facts of the situation on the border was probably the wisest course for the President, but let’s be brutally honest; the reason President Trump was put in this situation was because of the abject failure, or perhaps outright treachery of former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.

12 Republican Senators Vote To Maintain Disastrous Status Quo On Southern Border

The twelve Republicans who joined the Democrats and voted to disapprove President Trump's declaration of an emergency on our southern border represent a cross section of the fractured and out-of-touch Capitol Hill Republican Party’s coalition of virtue signaling windbags, constitutional nincompoops and globalist establishment tools.

We Stand With Tucker Carlson: Never Bow To Leftist Attempts At Censorship

Tucker Carlson is absolutely right, what the Left’s outrage machine is about is power, and controlling what you see, hear and eventually what you think. And the only way to keep that power from them is to never bow to them.

HR 1 – The Democrat Plan To Turn America Into California

Step 1 in the Democrats’ plan for what some wags have called the “Californication” of America has now passed the US House of Representatives on a party line vote. HR 1 is so bad that not even the usual RINOs would vote for it, so that gives you some flavor of what a disaster for constitutional liberty the bill would be if it became law.

Yes, The Southern Border Is At The Breaking Point

You know things are bad when the New York Times runs an article with the headline, “Border at ‘Breaking Point’ as More than 76,000 Unauthorized Migrants Cross in a Month.” We could quibble and point out they are illegal aliens, not “unauthorized migrants,” but why argue details when your enemies are finally helping you by telling the truth for a change?

Why a worthless GOP Senate is worth preserving -- for now

Ralph Z. Hallow, Washington Times

McConnell and the other anti-emergency powers Republicans would have a good case if Mr. Trump were conducting an imperial presidency the way his predecessors in both parties did, going back to former President Lyndon Barnes Johnson. But Mr. Trump instead has had to face Democrat-light GOP leadership in both chambers. The failure of Republicans to understand the levers of power available to them and to use them for necessary ends — like the southern border wall — is tantamount to felonious negligence. It is also typically Republican.

Say It Ain’t So Rand, Say It Ain’t So

We think Senator Paul came to the conclusion to oppose President Trump's declaration of an emergency on our southern border without reading the entire Constitution. Otherwise he would recognize that Article II and Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution provide that the President has a constitutional duty to defend the borders and sovereignty of the United States that congressional dereliction cannot frustrate.

GOP Senator Thom Tillis Flakes On Border Emergency

We urge CHQ readers and friends to call Senator Thom Tillis and other Republican Senators and Representatives TODAY. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) tell them there IS a national emergency on our southern border, and that under Article II and Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution the President has the authority and duty to declare an emergency on our southern border.

Where Are The House GOP Leaders On The Border Wall?

Democrats will vote today on a resolution disapproving Trump’s Declaration of a National Emergency at the southern border, but so far House Republican “leaders” have mounted no serious or even visible counterattack to the sustained battering Trump has received at the hands of Democrat Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the #NeverTrump foreign policy establishment.
