Marco Rubio = Jeb Bush without the good manners

If you take Jeb Bush’s policies and record on spending, education and amnesty for illegal aliens and add-in John McCain’s policies and record on amnesty for illegal aliens, bringing Muslims to America and engaging in endless and inconclusive adventures in the Middle East, and then add a dash of support for the Obama and Hillary Clinton disasters in Libya and Syria, plus a strong dose of their views on amnesty and funding left-wing racist organizations, you don’t get a limited government constitutional conservative – what you get is Marco Rubio – Jeb Bush, without the integrity and good manners.

In Celebration Of Ted Cruz’s Tough Tactics In Iowa

Much as the Iowa losers would like to make it otherwise, Hillary Clinton is going to run a smart, technologically savvy, in the moment, ruthless wedge-issue-driven campaign and trying to defeat the Clinton machine using the rules of etiquette as taught at a finishing school for little girls is a sure formula for defeat.

It’s Time To Call BS on Texas GOP Rep. John Culberson

This is going to play out exactly the same way Rep. Culberson’s cynical lies about stopping Obama's executive amnesty played out. Culberson will bluster, he will threaten, he may even hold a hearing or two, but absolutely nothing Obama does on guns is going to change because Culberson has already funded everything Obama plans to do right through September 2016. Please sign our open letter to Capitol Hill Republican leaders, tell them "If you won't stand with us to defend our Second Amendment rights, why should we stand with you on Election Day?"

John Kasich: The GOP Establishment’s Spare Prince

The job of the establishment’s “spare prince” in this year’s campaign is to present himself as a more palatable version of Jeb Bush to those who might be skeptical of electing another Bush or to jump in and save the establishment’s hold on the throne should Bush’s campaign falter as it appears to be doing. And John Kasich is a perfect “spare” for the Republican establishment.

Trump and Cruz Voters Hold the Key to Electing a Conservative Congress

What the Republican establishment and its U.S. Chamber of Commerce allies fear beyond anything else, including the election of Hillary Clinton as President, is that those voters who support Donald Trump and Ted Cruz can be welded into a cohesive grassroots populist conservative army committed to breaking what Ted Cruz calls the “Washington cartel.”

Why Trump Is Still Leading And Ted Cruz Rose After The Fox Debate

Manners Before Truth: The Usual RINOs Pile on Ted Cruz

Daniel Davis, Townhall

Sen. Ted Cruz's public accusation that Mitch McConnell lied to fellow Senators has not gone over well among the GOP leadership. Establishment Republicans are predictably going after the Texas Senator and rebuking him for violating Senate etiquette.

Trump’s Rise and the Tea Party: Rooted in the Failed Leadership of the GOP

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Readers asked me to expand on my Friday column about the rise of Donald Trump as a contender for the Republican nomination for President. In my view Donald Trump is just the latest in a long line of message carriers who have spoken for grassroots Americans fed-up with the duplicity and betrayals of the Republican establishment and Washington’s ruling class. One of the great ironies of the 2016 Republican presidential campaign may very well be that the establishment Republican political class will finally receive their comeuppance at the hands of Donald Trump, the most unlikely of populist conservatives.

Rush: Today's GOP Full of Moderates

Melissa Clyne, Newsmax

"There are a lot of mainstream Repub. voters who embody the same fear that GOP leaders do. 'We can't make the Hispanics mad!' A lot of mainstream Repub. voters are embarrassed by SPalin. Many don’t care about reducing the size of gov't. The GOP estab. is OK with that because they want to run it."

Will GOP Leaders Squander the Opportunity?

John Kass, Townhall

Republicans have Obama on the Democrats on the ropes, but what happens if they actually win? The GOP establishment has yet to articulate a vision of the future. What do the Republicans stand for, really? Where are they going? And where do they want to take the country?

Ted Cruz on 2016: Who is Standing Up and Leading?

Matthew Boyle, Breitbart

The Texas Senator is on the road trying to turn out conservatives in November, but he says the litmus test for GOP voters in the presidential primaries should be whether a given candidate has led on the battlefield of ideas against the left and political establishment as a whole.

Matthew Boyle, Breitbart

How Can GOP Senate Majority Prospects Be Trending In The Wrong Direction?

For a year and a half, Republicans in Washington, abetted by their business allies, assailed conservatives privately and in the press. The message the party and its consultants sent since the 2012 elections was "conservatives need not apply." Unfortunately, the Republican establishment may get their wish.

US Chamber of Commerce is Not Winning

Streiff, Red State

Big business as personified by the Chamber of Commerce has become anti-liberty and a purveyor of corporate welfare and crony capitalism. What the Chamber should be discovering is that even if their preferred candidates win, they can only do so by adopting most conservative positions.

Dems Deploy Their Mississippi Strategy Against Hice

Erick Erickson, Red State

An outside group mailed Dems absentee ballot applications. The piece explains that there's no chance a Dem. will win in the district and the only way to stop conservatives from winning is to support moderate Mike Collins. Moderate & liberal Repubs.
