Rep. Chip Roy Stands Against Senate GOP Amnesty Plan

Principled limited government constitutional conservative Republican Representative Chip Roy (TX-21) has stepped-up to oppose the backdoor amnesty plan being promoted by the open borders wing of the business community and their allies in the Senate’s Republican Conference. We urge CHQ readers to call their Senators (1-866-220-0044) to express opposition to the Farm Workforce Modernization Act.

GOP Joining Democrat Illegal Alien Amnesty Through New Farm Bill

The toll-free Capitol Switchboard number (1-866-220-0044), we urge CHQ readers and friends to call Senators Tillis, Graham and Lankford to demand that they get off this Democrat-inspired amnesty for illegal aliens bill. Vice President Mike Pence may be reached at 202-456-7549, we urge you to call him to tell him he risks losing the support of the conservative movement if he or his political operation back any bill that grants amnesty to illegal aliens.

Klobuchar: Democratic crowds are cheering for Romney

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Romney voted to remove the president. So now whenever Klobuchar mentions Romney at Democratic events, "everyone would cheer" the only senator in U.S. history to vote to remove a president of his own party. "I think we're living in a moment right now like no other," Klobuchar said. "Wherever you were on that impeachment hearing, I got to see some brave things happen. I got to see Mitt Romney take a vote that was really hard for him, and, as he said, he couldn't do it any other way because of his oath, and I got to talk about that in Democratic audiences, and everyone would cheer for Mitt Romney in the last few days, and I think it shows how things are kind of upside-down in our country."

Mitt Romney's 'profile in courage'

Byron York, Washington Examiner

On the plus side, the vote would win Romney widespread praise across much of the media. How often can one become a profile in courage? That would certainly feel good, especially for a man who was excoriated by some of those same media voices when he ran against Barack Obama eight years ago. Now, Romney will take plenty of hits from the Trump side, and from the president himself. But there are clearly benefits as well. So, just as it was in the old days, the question is: Who is Romney trying to please? Although he is a man with some undeniably good qualities, those who have watched him over the years will wonder whether the vote was truly something new or the Romney they have known for a long time.

What Prize Do We Give Mitt Romney?

R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator

There are numerous members of the House of Representatives and the Senate who made epic asses of themselves during these unnecessary and wasteful proceedings. The American people expect better of the House and the Senate. Yet if there is one senator who deserves an award for his performance, say, Jackass of the Year, it is Sen. Mitt Romney of the great state of Utah. Mitt just kept talking, obviously enjoying the drama. Now the so-called liberals want to reverse previous presidents’ accretions of power. Moreover, they want to do it by stealth. Well, Mitch McConnell beat them back. Well done, senator. If we are going to turn our government into a parliamentary system, let us call a Constitutional Convention.

Trump Recognizes His Congressional Defense Team In Well-Deserved Victory Lap

While we agree with the President that Democrats are both vicious and mean, we want to focus on what the President said about the Republicans and conservatives who were the leaders of the effort to save the Trump presidency and the MAGA agenda.

Mitt Romney Will Never Ever In A Million Years Be President

Were Romney’s action a singular deviation from conservative orthodoxy one might give fair consideration to its legitimacy, but it is not. Romney’s choice to ignore the clear evidence offered in the President’s defense is of a piece with his past choices to align himself against his fellow Republicans and the conservative movement.

Do You Speak Trump Or Democrat?

The problem with the impeachment farce (or attempted coup as we prefer) is not that Democrats were “speaking different languages” from Republicans, but that from the very beginning of the Trump presidency Democrats chose to dishonestly present their policy differences with President Trump as self-evident crimes and then tailor the facts and testimony to fit that narrative.

Romney Sides With Democrats on Impeachment, Gets Hit By Club for Growth Ad Campaign

The Club for Growth will launch a television advertisement, “Handle,” criticizing Senator Mitt Romney for siding with Democrats in the impeachment process. The ad will run on Fox News in Salt Lake City and Washington, D.C.  and reinforces Lou Dobbs' message that Romney is a "creep," "reprehensible," a "treacherous fool," and a "snake."

Speaking on Sunday's political talk shows, Republican Senator Ted Cruz and Democrat Senator Sharrod Brown came to opposite conclusions about whether Hunter Biden would be called to testify in President Trump's Senate impeachment trial.

Mitt Romney's grasp at anonymity: 'Pierre Delecto' is a passenger on the swamp express

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

This is another crime that Mr. Trump has committed for which the Pierres of the world hate him — being able to be himself and to own it; to have enough regard for the American people that he’s honest with them; to be exactly the same person in a general election as he is during a primary season. This is very bad news for people like Mitt Romney, Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush, Joe Biden and so many others in the rotted establishment. In the meantime, Mr. Romney is losing Utah, where a new UtahPolicy.com poll shows his approval rating is now underwater. The Romney First strategy isn’t going over very well among Republicans and conservatives.

Will the Real Mitt Romney Please Shut Up?

Jared Whitley, Real Clear Politics

On the one hand we have a party whose policies lead toward failure, ruin, and urban rot – a party that demands total control over every aspect of American life but cannot even run monolithically Democratic cities like Portland or San Francisco. On the other hand, protecting us from that we have a guy who sends mean tweets and calls people names. I’d call that a bargain. And I’d call Mitt Romney jealous and petty for not acknowledging this. He's only impressing people who didn't vote for him in 2012. There is hardly any such thing as a former Trump supporter. There are, however, many, many former Romney supporters.

Mitt Romney Implodes After Outing of Secret Twitter Persona

Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator

What we have is yet another glimpse of just how unprincipled Mitt Romney is. He believes Trump appeals to racism and misogyny — but he was thrilled to have his endorsement in 2012. He told liberal Massachusetts voters in 2002 he was “not a partisan Republican” but a “moderate” whose “views are progressive.” But in 2012, running for the GOP presidential nomination, he told his conservative audience he was a “severe conservative.” The difference between what happens when conservatives are excited to rally to their candidate and what happens when they are not could not be greater than in the response of the GOP base to Romney in 2012 and Trump in 2016.

Snit Romney

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

It’s his weakness that really grates, the pseudo-gentlemanly submissiveness to the abuse of the elite we saw for far too long among our alleged True Conservative™ betters. We’ve learned that “being the bigger man” and not fighting back were not some sort of higher principle being put into action but were, rather, the manifestation of the weakness inherent in the conservatives of the cruise ship class. Candy Crowley humiliated him in front of the entire country and he just took it. Well, we’re sick of just taking it. He and his human puffball ilk are why we said “Ahoy” to Donald Trump. Hey Mitt, I want my vote back.

Tell Mitt Romney to Stop Colluding with Democrats!

Romney’s politically motivated attacks on President Trump only serve to embolden the leftist Democrats’ outrageous and illegitimate witch hunt against the President which undermines his pro-growth economic agenda, his non-interventionist foreign policy and his pro-life and pro-family domestic policy.
