Bernie Sanders Oppressor Of The Working Class

Senator Bernie Sanders may be the first Marxist to have a serious chance of being the Democratic Party’s nominee for President of the United States, but it appears his campaign operates more on the free market economic principles of Milton Friedman than the socialism of Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin.

It’s Not A Bribe When You Use Other People’s Money

Derek Hunter, Townhall

In total, the Democratic field is offering tens of trillions of dollars in bribes to voters if they’d just pick them to be president. But they are not bribes, they’re new and expanded government programs. Apparently it’s not a bribe if you offer people someone else’s money. But don’t follow their example and try this in your life. Just as if you kept a corporation’s books the way the government handles its accounting, you’d end up in jail, the people who write the laws were very careful to exempt themselves from the legal definition of a bribe for the purpose of buying votes. They’ve always done it, they’ve just never done it so blatantly. The “Woke Olympics” have just started, hold on to your wallets.

A Lesson For Democrats From Jimmy Dean

When Jimmy Dean sells sausage, he doesn’t show his customers how the sausage is made and what goes into it – there are no pictures on TV of pigs being herded into the packing plant, killed and ground-up. Fortunately for President Trump, today's Far Left Democrats are showing their customers not only how the sausage is made, but who in America is going to be killed, ground up and stuffed into the casing if a Democrat is elected president.

Is Kamala Harris Eligible To Be President?

The argument against Ted Cruz being a "natural born" citizen went something like this: To be a “natural born” citizen, one must be born within the territory of the United States, to two citizen parents. Applying the same historical and legal arguments used against Senator Cruz to Kamala Harris it appears she is not a “natural born” citizen, rather she is more like America’s most high profile and least grateful anchor baby.

Democrats In Debate Double Down On The Issue That Lost Them The 2016 Election

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
As New York's Cardinal Timothy Dolan said, the Democrats have “slammed the door” on Catholics, our Faith, our Church, and our traditions. Democrats are so beholden to Planned Parenthood, Far Left Hollywood celebrities and radical feminists that they are blind to the fact that their position on abortion alienates the country’s largest group of swing voters.

Sugarcoating Socialism

After Bernie’s opening it seemed like everyone in the Democratic debate, except Governor Hickenlooper, started with “I agree with Bernie” or some variation thereof. It seems that there is no problem, from income inequality, to the alleged climate crisis, to war, to unwanted pregnancy that socialism can’t cure.

Last Night’s Fauxahontas Show

Warren’s mini biography about growing up poor in Oklahoma, and “I will fight for you” was easily the strongest close. Author Saeed Jones may have summed up last night's debate best when he tweeted, “Elizabeth Warren’s ability to remain patient and thoughtful while sharing the stage with such a diverse array of ambitious losers is commendable.”

Democrat Debate: The Largest Gathering Of Liberals Since Woodstock

The pre-debate panderfest has been a doozy with Democratic candidates for President rolling out taxpayer funded giveaway after giveaway, with Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders’ student loan forgiveness scheme being by far the most expensive, but not the kookiest.

This Explains A Lot

As if having Wall Street wonder boy Gary Cohn trying to undo the President’s economic nationalism from a big office in the West Wing wasn’t bad enough, the US Chamber of Commerce is buying access to the Trump White House by hiring Sara Armstrong, the Republican National Committee's Chief of Staff to try to defeat the policies Trump campaigned on.

How to Annihilate U.S. Socialism and Force Washington to Listen

The socialist movement eliminated Christianity in government and education because they know what our Founders knew. Only a moral society can be a free society.  Without a Christian moral foundation, America devolves into more offenses and violence, which leads to more elitists and tighter state control.

Jeff Flake: A Book By A Fake Conservative With No Conscience

We urge CHQ readers to skip Flake’s screed against the voters he has failed as a member of Congress and read the original Goldwater – Bozell version of Conscience of a Conservative instead.

It's Time To Drain The Swamp In The GOP

We conservatives need to translate the grassroots rage over the betrayals of Republican elected officials into a national conversation about the future of the Republican Party and a wave of national activism to nominate and elect “Drain the Swamp” Republicans to the House of Representatives and the US Senate.

Indiana Trump and Cruz Voters Agree: Marlin Stutzman for Senate

The open Senate seat in Indiana is one where the two leading candidates present a stark choice between Marlin Stutzman, the principled limited government constitutional conservative and Todd Young, the Big Government – Big Business Mitch McConnell yes-man. We urge our friends in Indiana to vote Marlin Stutzman for Senate in tomorrow’s Indiana Republican primary.

Sorry Rush, You Missed It On Rubio

We think Rush missed it big time with his comment about Senator Rubio because, based on his record going back to when he was in the Florida legislature, if Marco Rubio is a “full throated conservative” it is because he is all talk on our issues.

President Trump Will Complete the Europeanization of America

Leon H. Wolf, RedState

Even if Trump can do half the things he promises, the end result of his nomination as the standard bearer of the Republican party is that we are ten years or less from joining the Brits, French, Germans, and Greeks in basically accepting that the government should run our healthcare, our workplaces, and our economic sector, and just bickering about who can do it most efficiently.

Democrats' problem: Americans have little faith in government

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

The Republican party certainly has its problems: a chaotic presidential race, a despised congressional party, unpopularity among the rapidly growing number of non-whites. But the Democratic party has its problems as well. One of them is the fact that the two signature policies of Barack Obama—the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare, the nuclear agreement with Iran—are unpopular with most voters.

Highway Bill Shows Conservatives Must Keep Speaker Ryan Honest

Far from being a new day, the highway bill looks like the same Big Government Republican snake oil of John Boehner presented by a somewhat more attractive and articulate huckster. Congress needs to hear from the grassroots that what we want is for Republicans to do what we sent them to Washington to do: Stop Obama's Liberal Transformation of America. Please sign the petition to let Paul Ryan know you want Republicans to concentrate on stopping Obama’s agenda, instead of giving him another gimmicky bailout of a failed spending program.

The Big Government Four: Bush, Rubio, Huckabee and Kasich

What separates these four from the Republican base is their willingness to be the tax collector for the welfare state and their reliance on government to address matters that limited government constitutional conservatives prefer to allow the market and individual free will to decide.

Fiorina: Government too big to get basics right

Carly Fiorina, USA Today

It is clear that we need a fundamental reimagining of government. That starts with citizenship and leadership. It starts with a definitive message to the professional political class: we will not stand for this anymore.

Independent Institute Launches "Love Gov" Video Series

The 5-part video series depicts the federal government as an overbearing boyfriend—Scott “Gov” Govinsky—who foists his “good intentions” on a hapless, idealistic college student, Alexis. Premiering on YouTube on July 7, Love Gov personifies the increasing folly, cost, and intrusiveness of government in the lives of everyone, especially young people who are just entering their working lives and becoming politically aware.
