GOP Saps Need to Quit Being Idiots

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

I’m a lawyer and I negotiate for a living, so maybe I can provide some perspective. The Republicans’ “negotiations” consist of giving concessions to people who hate them that will get them nothing in return but the contempt of GOP voters. I’m baffled why I have to explain this, but that’s a bad deal. If I did that kind of deal for clients, I’d be driving a 1991 Ford Fiesta hoopty with a missing rear bumper instead of my sweet, sweet premium touring sedan. Stop doing stupid things, Republicans! We want you to protect us from the coordinated attack upon us, not tongue-bathe the attackers. Do you need suggestions?

Take Teddy Roosevelt Off Mount Rushmore While You Are At It

Like all historical figures, Teddy Roosevelt’s legacy is complex, but if his own descendants won’t defend the first President to invite an African-American to dine as a guest at the White House, far be it from us to take on the woke social justice warrior mob to defend the legacy of the egotist who split the Republican Party and set the stage for the election of Democrat Woodrow Wilson, one of the most virulent racists to ever sully American politics.

In Memoriam: Senator Tom Coburn, More Than Dr. No

While Dr. Coburn’s long battle against pork barrel spending and the accumulation of our ruinous national debt made him persona non grata in the plush bars and swank restaurants of Washington’s K Street lobbyist hangouts, conservatives remember him for two other things; his steadfast Christian faith and his unrelenting opposition to abortion.

Jeb Bush Urges Republicans To Go Back To Being Punching Bags For The Left

One thing Donald Trump will never be is a punching bag, and as a consequence of what Jeb Bush and his ilk view as Trump’s incivility, the Republican Party has returned to its roots as a political movement that fights for its principles, rather than politely compromising them away.

Conservatives: Start The New Year Off Right By Running For Office

Conservatives must act NOW to make sure that we have limited government constitutional conservative candidates filed for every office up and down the ballot. The hunger for change in Washington and the demand for a purge of the Deep State is a powerful force in American politics that could produce another tsunami in elections across the country. But you must file NOW to get on the ballot.

Conservatives Confront The Trump Era

The Philadelphia Society, one of the conservative movement’s premiere intellectual gatherings, was founded in 1964 to connect the dots between political philosophy and government policies.  That presents new challenges in the era of President Trump, who has catapulted the nation into a new political era.

Josh Hawley Is Quickly Becoming One Of The Most Important Conservatives In America

Rachel Bovard, The Daily Wire

It is time for conservatives to acknowledge that while our principles remain steadfast, their application — and the political consensus that guides them — is in need of self-critical review. Josh Hawley may be the senator best positioned to do this. His fearlessness in subjecting the old assumptions to rigorous evaluation is breathing new life into our increasingly rusty and irrelevant Congress. And his embodiment of the commitment to the foundations of conservatism with a profound understanding for grievances that animate the populists makes him one of the most intellectually interesting and relevant policymakers to watch.

Jeb Goes Full Bush On Sanctuary Cities

With the Florida legislature about to pass a bill prohibiting Florida local governments from implementing so-called sanctuary city policies, Jeb! has surfaced to opine that sanctuary cities in Florida were “not a problem.” Update - despite Jeb Bush's opposition the bill passed yesterday and Florida now has a tough anti-sanctuary city law.

The Indispensable Rep. Louie Gohmert

All too often we must ask CHQ readers to call Congress to protest some anti-conservative action by the so-called leaders of the Republican Party. Today we urge CHQ readers and friends to call Rep. Louie Gohmert’s office (1-866-220-0044) to thank him for his steadfast conservative leadership and especially for his successful efforts to gain the release of Sgt. Derrick Miller. (Pictured above Mrs. Renee Miller, mother of Sgt. Derrick Miller and Rep. Louie Gohmert)

The New York Times Attacks Us Deplorables, I Fight Back: Part 3 of 3

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
New York Times columnists Rosenfeld and Schlozman’s charge that those who hew to the foundational laws of Western Civilization outlined in the Bible are “extremists” shows just how far out of the American mainstream Democrats and their Leftwing fellow travelers have moved.

The New York Times Attacks Us Deplorables, I Fight Back: Part 2 of 3

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
New York Times columnists Rosenfeld and Schlozman’s charge that the conservative movement is inherently racist constitutes a slander with no basis in fact, and it also conveniently deflects inquiry into which side really needs to appeal to racism to succeed, the Right or the Left?

The New York Times Attacks Us Deplorables, I Fight Back: Part 1 of 3

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
NYT columnists Sam Rosenfeld and Daniel Schlozman apparently believe that we deplorables who voted for Ronald Reagan in 1980 and Donald Trump in 2016 are unworthy to govern and we should simply cede power to the Leftist elite and resume the status of the powerless victims we were prior to the rise of the Reagan coalition and the modern conservative movement.

Run Like Kevin McCarthy Fight Like Jim Jordan

Rep. McCarthy claims to have the right instincts and the right tools; he could be, not just a good leader, but a great leader, if he adopts Jim Jordan’s platform of keeping the GOP’s promises and fighting for conservative principles and President Trump’s conservative – populist agenda at every turn in the legislative process.

Jim Jordan’s Most Important Qualifications For Minority Leader

Jim Jordan proved in founding the Freedom Caucus is that he’s up for the fight, and that is the most important qualification for Minority Leader. Kevin McCarthy and his establishment allies are much more worried about looking good to their friends at the country club than they are fighting for conservative principles, especially when the immediate chances of winning are slim.

Democrats Being Themselves

Conservatives wondering what the future holds for the upcoming 116th Congress should wonder no more and simply take Democrats at their word as to their plans. This means a very full agenda of harassing President Trump, pursuing conspiracy theories, raising taxes and restricting your freedom.

Jim Jordan: House GOP Leaders Blew 2018 Election

Democrats are going to spend the next two years harassing President Trump and offering free stuff to voters. The only thing Republicans have that can beat free is keeping the promises made in the 2016 election. We urge CHQ readers and friends to sign our letter to newly elected Republicans urging them to vote for Jim Jordan for House Minority Leader.

Memo To New GOP House Members: Kevin McCarthy Is Too Dumb And Inept To Be Minority Leader

Rep. Kevin McCarthy is just plain too dumb and incoherent to effectively speak for the Republican minority, let alone lead Republicans to regain the majority. We urge CHQ readers and friends to sign our letter to newly elected Republicans urging them to vote for Jim Jordan for House Minority Leader and call their Republican Representative TODAY to urge him or her to vote for Jim Jordan when the House Republican Conference meets.

OK, Now That Kavanaugh Has Been Confirmed…

Conservatives have a two-step process to achieve a conservative Congress: First, keep the House and expand our numbers in the Senate. Second, put pressure on the Republican House majority to elect Jim Jordan Speaker to keep their promises on the Trump agenda going into 2020.

Jim Jordan For Speaker By The Numbers

As we have often said, no voter in their right mind – and these polls show the conservative voters the GOP needs to win are more attuned than ever – is going to vote to continue Paul Ryan’s legacy of betrayals, lies and failures.
