Afghanistan: Less Important Than Porn Stars

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

The "news" you see at night on broadcast television is defined by what "outrage" has been perpetrated by President Donald Trump. The American Army at war in Afghanistan is 30 percent as important as a two-bit prostitute. Whatever might cause the end of the Trump presidency is "news." Whatever might cause the re-election of Donald Trump is treated like it belongs in a deep, dark cave like containers of radioactive waste. Whatever is news is not news if it doesn't fit that narrative.

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Conservatives needed a political voice if they were to go to combat in the political arena.  They found one in an outspoken U.S. Senator from Arizona, and we look at the successful strategy they chose in excerpt No. 10 of 45 from America’s Right Turn: How Conservatives Used New and Alternative Media to Take Power, by Richard A. Viguerie and David Franke.

How William F. Buckley Jr. Gave Birth to the Conservative Movement

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
One man—William F. Buckley Jr.—and his new magazine National Review were successful in creating a mass conservative movement in the years after 1955.  We learn the reasons for their success in this excerpt from America’s Right Turn: How Conservatives Used New and Alternative Media to Take Power.

The Banality of Bias

Ben Shapiro, CNS News

This is the problem with unelected, unaccountable, nontransparent bureaucracies: They are subject to ideological perversion that they themselves may not even notice until it is too late. That's why they should be extraordinarily careful in how they wield power. Unfortunately, our law enforcement agencies aren't, and the result is a dramatic loss of trust that they can ill afford.

Conservatives in the Wilderness: Restless, but Lacking Leadership

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Conservatives in 1955 were restless, anxious to be heard, and had plenty of motivating issues.  But they lacked political and intellectual leadership.  That would soon come, with an outspoken Senator from Arizona and an articulate young author.  The stage was set in the 1950s for the birth of a new conservative movement, as we see in this excerpt from America’s Right Turn: How Conservatives Used New and Alternative Media to Take Power.

Conservatives in the Wilderness: American Politics in 1955

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
In 1955, liberalism reigned supreme over the politics of the United States.  If there is one lesson to be learned, however, it is:  Never despair, and never give up.  A new day was coming, as we see in this excerpt from America’s Right Turn: How Conservatives Used New and Alternative Media to Take Power.

Money in Politics: Everyone Complains About It, but Every Political Movement Needs It

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Everyone complains about the role of money in politics, but nobody’s figured out how to run a political movement or party without money.  Get it from lobbyists?  Special interests?  Billionaires?  In this excerpt from Chapter 3 of America's Right Turn by Richard A. Viguerie and David Franke we explain how conservatives in the 1960s figured out a better way.

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
In this excerpt from Chapter 3, “The Recipe for Creating a New Mass Movement,” of America’s Right Turn: How Conservatives Used New and Alternative Media to Take Power, by Richard A. Viguerie and David Franke we consider “Self-identification as a movement” and Communication networks, sometimes including a secret weapon.

What Conservatives Can Learn From the West’s First Media Revolution

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Consider how this historic lesson repeated itself in the conservative media revolution of the 1960s—how conservatives were the first to use the new and alternative media, how liberals later caught up, but how the conservatives could no longer be eradicated or sidelined as they had been before.  Then ask yourself:  What can we do to make certain we are the first to dominate any new media technologies?

Media Monopolies Declare War on Conservatives

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

Beware Networks Skipping Their Own Polls

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

No one expects these networks to report all of their polling results. But consumers should beware that these "facts first" networks have a tendency to pass over the results they don't like and heavily emphasize the ones they do. Whether they are reporting on polls or policies or scandals or gaffes, everything the networks report sounds like dark clouds and stormy seas for Trump and the GOP. Disaster is always around the corner. The wishful thinking is palpable and incessant.

Ted Cruz Nails Mark Zuckerberg's Liberal Bias

When Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg claimed there was no political bias at Facebook Senator Cruz rattled off a laundry list of examples: A “Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day” page that was banned in 2012, around the time that homosexuals were organizing a boycott of the fast-food chain after its chief operating officer made comments against same-sex marriage. Diamond and Silk, the outspoken Trump fangirls who were told by Facebook that their “content and brand” were “unsafe to the community” were just two examples on the list.

Before There Was Facebook And Cambridge Analytica Conservatives Had The Viguerie Company Part 1 of 3

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Liberals have effective control of the mass media -- a virtual monopoly on TV, newspapers, magazines and their associated websites, and increasingly, social media. However, there is one method of mass commercial communication that the liberals do not control -- direct mail.

Mr. Zuckerberg, Who Is The Facebook “Community”?

The announcement that pro-Trump internet sensations Diamond and Silk have been identified as “unsafe to the community” by Facebook’s content monitors prompts us to ask, who is the so-called Facebook community?

The Knee-Jerk Liberals Spit At Sinclair

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Most Sinclair stations are affiliates of ABC, CBS and NBC. So liberals object to a 60-second promo — but see nothing wrong with "60 Minutes" promoting Trump's alleged porn-star lover or the forthcoming prime-time George Stephanopoulos interview hour with former FBI Director James Comey on these very same stations. One-sided news is the best kind of news for most of the broadcast day ... as long as your "news" skews to the left.

The Herd Media Stampedes Sinclair

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Whatever is conventional for liberals is somehow controversial for conservatives. That’s the only interpretive key you need to understand the “outrages” of the ruling class. Liberals think they should have one hundred percent of the power in America, so to them any exercise of power by conservatives is inherently troubling. None of the inflammatory language they use these days can be understood apart from that assumption. That’s why almost every move Trump makes, no matter how obviously it falls within his constitutional powers, is treated as “lawless.”

New FedUp PAC Poll: FBI Scandal Requires Special Prosecutor

More than 94% of those responding to the latest FedUp PAC poll agree that recent revelations showing that the FBI has a pro-Clinton, pro-Obama, and anti-Trump partisan bias require investigation and that “we cannot trust the FBI to investigate itself.”

Lack of Judicial Impartiality Threatens Rule of Law

Roger Kimball, American Greatness

The harm judicial supremacists do goes far beyond their particular rulings. It erodes the one thing that guarantees the place of the judiciary in a free society: widespread trust in the legitimacy, which is to say, the impartiality of its operation. The black robes are a symbol of that trust and the majesty that imbues it. The Fourth Circuit has just violated that trust in the most brutal and cavalier fashion, threatening to transform those somber black robes from an emblem of high office into costume worn by impersonators.
