My Meeting With Donald Trump: My Question For Mr. Trump And Next Steps (Part 4 of 4)

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
We know there’s no negotiating on our issues with Hillary Clinton, so it is to Donald Trump that right-of-center voters will have to look if our country and constitutional liberties are to survive, and it is to us that Trump must look to find the votes necessary to win the election. We have an opportunity to negotiate a win-win deal with Mr. Trump, but the burden to make clear what our priorities are is now on us.

My Meeting With Donald Trump: Trump Fumbles, But Closes Strongly (Part 3 of 4)

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

Clearly, it does not come naturally to Donald Trump to speak the language of cultural conservatives, politically active Christians and the Bible. However, when was the last time you heard a Republican candidate for President, say “we have to bring young people back to church”? Is that something Mitt Romney or John McCain would have said? Not on your life!

My Meeting With Donald Trump: What Trump Got Right On The Conservative Agenda (Part 2 of 4)

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

Not many politicians would use the word “hell” in a room full of Evangelical preachers, Catholic priests and lay ministers of who knows how many denominations, but Trump did and to heavy applause because of the self-evident truth of his answer. 

I Endorse Ted Cruz for President. What Are We Conservatives Waiting For?

To take the White House in 2016 Republicans must nominate a candidate who we know will govern according to constitutional principles, who is capable of drawing a clear contrast with Hillary Clinton and the Democrats on the issues of importance in today’s political environment, and who has the brains, talent and discipline to fight Hillary Clinton and win. That candidate is Senator Ted Cruz of Texas.

CHQ Chairman Richard A. Viguerie is a pioneer in the political landscape of the United States. In the ‘60s he was the first to use computer technology in political fundraising. Then in the ‘70s and ‘80s his direct marketing techniques “may have tipped the entire political balance” in the conservative direction, according to The Washington Post. Mr. Viguerie continues at the forefront of conservative direct mail fundraising as founder and president of American Target Advertising. He specializes in helping conservative organizations and leaders develop a grassroots base that has an impact.

Viguerie: Quick Takeaways From The Debate

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

I believe the most important quality to look for in the Republican candidate for President is being a fighter; who came away looking electable, who came away looking like Ronald Reagan and who came away looking like a fighter in last night's debates? 

Three Things That Aren’t True About The First GOP Presidential Debate

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

Despite what the media has been telling voters, not everyone who will be on the stage Thursday night is a “conservative," the “the 11th Commandment” only applies as long as the establishment candidate is winning (but the media and Republican establishment will be the self-appointed enforcers of it), and the debate is not all about Donald Trump, who is bound to make a “gaffe.”

Clarity on privacy and marriage

Richard A. Viguerie and Mark Fitzgibbons, The Washington Times

Two issues being hotly contested at the national level this year — government collection of private records as debated through the Patriot Act sunset provision, and the definition of marriage before the Supreme Court — distinguish conservatives from neocons and libertarians. Those two issues also highlight why conservatism is the right blend of principles when it comes to the role of government, constitutional liberty, national defense, economic security and American exceptionalism.

Propaganda Is Directing Us Leftward Into The Abyss - Here's How To Fight Back

As CHQ Chairman Richard A. Viguerie documented in his latest book, TAKEOVER, conservatism has long been infected with the “Sir Galahad Theory of Politics”: “I will win because my heart is pure.” In a must read essay just out on The Federalist, Stella Morabito likewise argues that American conservatives are by and large clueless about propaganda methods and tactics and proposes ideas to confront and battle the tyranny of political correctness and Leftist propaganda wherever you find them.

Please Join Me For Some Fun And Civil War History

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

On June 6th, the Stone Hill Players will be giving the WORLD PREMIERE of James Reston’s “Sherman the Peacemaker.”  It is a story of “the last days and immediate aftermath of the Civil War, as General William Tecumseh Sherman completes his ‘march to the sea’ across Georgia and the Carolinas, and secures the surrender of General Joseph E. Johnston – the after Appomattox surrender that is less celebrated, more controversial, and equally important to understanding America after the war.” And one of the “stars,” or at least one of the actors in the play, is yours truly – Richard A. Viguerie – playing a Confederate General  – General John Belle Hood.

Conservatives: Don’t Knock Hillary Out Too Soon

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

The Hillary Clinton email scandal is important and should be investigated; let the investigation go where the leads and the law take it, but conservatives are fooling themselves if they think knocking Hillary out of the presidential race early is all upside. 

Viguerie: GOP Is A House Divided, Boehner Must Go To Unite GOP

The Bible and Lincoln tell us that a house divided cannot stand. During his tenure as Speaker John Boehner has divided the Republican Party like it hasn’t been divided since Progressives bolted the GOP over 100 years ago. The only thing that will reunite Republicans is new leadership on Capitol Hill.

Send Obama Democrats A Message: A GOP Blowout Means “NO” To Fundamentally Changing America

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

We conservatives must send a message to Washington that America overwhelmingly rejects Obama’s policies, and that message will only get through if Republican candidates, even in Democratic strongholds where they are likely to lose, chalk-up big numbers.

Viguerie to NewsMax: If GOP Wins Big Thank The Tea Party

"Republican leaders have consciously not nationalized this election because they don't want to have a mandate to govern and close the borders and strengthen our national defense and roll back Obamacare and other big government agenda items...Conservatives need to bear the burden of nationalizing this election because it's not going to come from the Republican leaders."

The Real Impact of Reagan’s “A Time for Choosing” Speech

“The Speech” established Ronald Reagan’s political brand as the preeminent communicator of conservative ideas, and as CHQ Chairman Richard Viguerie observed in TAKEOVER, in some sense, for the next twenty-five years Reagan never deviated from that script.

The Vote Changing Video The National GOP Could Run, But Won’t

“I don’t know why the national Republican leaders have been so timid about nationalizing the election and making the 2014 campaign about amnesty, national security and Obama’s abuse of power. But I do know we conservatives can and must do something about it – that’s why I’m distributing ‘Who Will Keep Us Safe?’”
Richard A. Viguerie, Chairman, Fed Up PAC 

Fed Up PAC: Republicans Never Win Big on Election Day Unless Elections Are Nationalized

Richard A. Viguerie, Chairman of FedUp PAC, says GOP leaders are AWOL and conservatives will lead to nationalize the 2014 election on the issues of no amnesty for illegal aliens, standing up to radical Islam and ending the culture of lies, lawlessness and corruption with which Barack Obama has poisoned Washington. 

Nine Simple Things YOU Can Do TODAY To Nationalize The 2014 Election And Save America

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

Nationalizing the election means that the voters are focused on or thinking about one, two or maybe three main issues that override most all other issues. Another way to think about what it means to nationalize the election is that the voters have in their head a "tune they can whistle."

Viguerie Letter Helps Dave Brat Rally Grassroots Army Against Eric Cantor

CHQ Chairman Richard A. Viguerie's help in mobilizing Virginia's conservative grassroots through two effective letters that got to the heart of the matter: Eric Cantor doesn't speak for us and we're going to make him (and the Washington, D.C. establishment) listen. The letters revealed why Cantor's victorious opponent, conservative activist and professor Dave Brat, rightfully won.
