Viguerie and CHQ Join Conservative Leaders Demanding Media Apologize to Covington Catholic Kids

We denounce any media outlet that continues to so dishonestly attack the Covington Catholic kids and we call on them to apologize for the bullying behavior that continues to result in threats of violence against the kids, their school and their community.

Ann Coulter Couldn't Be More Wrong - Trump Is No Wimp On The Wall

Ann Coulter couldn't be more wrong - Trump is no wimp. We urge CHQ readers and friends to have faith in President Trump’s commitment to build the wall. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) tell your Senators and Representative if Congress remains in political gridlock you agree the President should use his Article II authority to declare a national emergency and have the Pentagon build the Wall.

Senate GOP Squishes Screw Trump On Border Wall… Again

The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) we urge all CHQ readers and friends to call Senators Lamar Alexander, Susan Collins, Corey Gardner, Johnny Isakson, Lisa Murkowski and Mitt Romney to tell them no more defections, and that grassroots conservative Republicans back President Trump and his commitment to keep the partial government shutdown in place until the wall is funded.

Anti-Catholicism and media malpractice

Editors, Washington Examiner

The Covington Catholic incident needs to be put in a larger context. The larger context is burgeoning anti-Catholicism on the political Left and in the press. Earlier in the month, Sens. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, opposed a federal judicial nominee on the grounds that he belongs to the Knights of Columbus, the largest Catholic service organization in the world. This is bigotry. But it’s bigotry that echoes the prejudices of so many media elites, and so it gets a pass. But now it grows into something ugly.

Don’t Bet On Centrist Democrats Bringing Pelosi Around On The Wall

Centrist House Democrats, who say they are sick of political posturing, want Speaker Pelosi to counter Trump’s sure-to-die-in-the-Senate immigration proposal with her own compromise. But don't bet on them succeeding because all the political weight in the Democratic Party now lies with the Far Left.

UniParty Pulling Bait And Switch On Trump Wall Funding

The UniParty on Capitol Hill is doing an elaborate little Minuet to convince you that there’s just no support for the Wall. Here’s the first Partita of the Minuet according to The Hill: The Senate leadership on Tuesday struck an agreement to vote on dueling proposals to reopen the federal government, not secure the southern border.

Trump Immigration Proposal Boxes In Democrats

Should Democrats kill the Trump proposal – as we believe they will – the President should feel empowered to begin to explore executive action to address the national security crisis at our southern border – including using the military to construct an effective border wall.

Mr. President, No Surrender On The Wall

Though we don’t want to see anyone out of work or missing a paycheck, why should anyone care more that a hundred or a thousand or ten thousand government employees are not getting paid - than for the survival of their country?

What V.P. Mike Pence Asked Conservatives To Do

Yesterday, CHQ Richard A. Viguerie and his team participated in a conference call with Vice President Pence about the Wall. It was a good call, but we think the Vice President underestimated what the President’s grassroots conservative-populist supporters would be willing to do to help get the Wall built and we have some additional action items to suggest.

Last Night The President Asked For Our Help, Are You In?

Last night during his Oval Office address on border security President Trump made a simple request of every American: To every citizen: call Congress and tell them to finally – after all of these decades – secure our border. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) call your Senators and Representative TODAY tell them #BuildTheDamnWallNow.

The Wall And The Shameful Silence Of GOP Leaders

Why shouldn’t the Democrats think they can win the fight over the Wall? For the past two years the GOP’s congressional leaders were shamefully silent whenever the subject of the Wall came up and stalled around avoiding any showdown with the Democrats that when won would have funded the Wall.

Mr. President, Here’s What You Must Tell The American People Tonight

The Left has made its opposition to the border wall clear. So, the President should use tonight's address to make Democrats own the effects of their policies and brand them as the Party of the murder, drug pushing, economic upheaval and chaos that their policies have brought to our country. Only by using the proven technique of a primetime TV address pioneered by President Ronald Reagan can President Trump make those dangers known to the American people.

Mining CSPAN for Democrat Impeachment Gold

To put the Democrats’ hypocrisy on what is and is not an impeachable offense in context, our friend Ben Weingarten compared comments made by Rep. Jerold Nadler following the release of the sentencing memorandum for the president’s former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, with what Nadler said during the Bill Clinton impeachment.

The Democrats’ Delusions Drive The Trump Impeachment Narrative

Democrats have convinced themselves that Donald Trump’s election was fraud, not a revolution against the Leftwing establishment consensus in Washington. So, while the narrative has shifted from Russian collusion to real or imagined campaign finance violations, the underlying concept that Donald Trump was “fraudulently” elected President hasn’t shifted at all.

Mark Meadows For White House Chief Of Staff

The most important job President Trump’s next Chief of Staff has is not making the trains run on time – it is making the trains deliver on President Trump’s agenda to ensure his reelection. Priebus and Kelly both failed in that important part of the job, Mark Meadows is the only name that has surfaced who can deliver on it in the face of a hostile Nancy Pelosi-led Congress.

Crenshaw vs. Liberal Panic on Press Freedom

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Those on the left have been ranting for years now that the press can't allow Trump to be "normalized" — in other words, the media must always behave as if an election-stealing dictator is sitting in the White House. For the left, there is no universal morality. There are the idealistic leftists who must be celebrated, and there are the Cynical, Lying Bad Guys who must be destroyed. Dan Crenshaw exposed how much civility is limited when it comes to conservatives.

Corrupt Democrats Are Not 'News'

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

When seeking to demonstrate the degree to which the "objective" news media act like Democratic partisans, the best place to start is scandals, as in "Have you heard all about the latest Republican scandal?" versus "What Democrat scandal?" Think of this, and then feel free to laugh at NBC's Chuck Todd, who proclaimed on Sunday's "Meet the Press" that charges of a liberal bias in the media are an old Roger Ailes tactic "not based in much fact."

If You Want To Know Why Conservatives Don’t Trust Media, Watch CNN

David Harsanyi, The Federalist

It’s one thing to deny the embedded bias of political media—the left-ideological framing, skewed focus, and prejudiced coverage that’s forced conservatives to consume news through a filter for decades—and it’s another to ignore a bias that’s transforming into unethical advocacy. Suspicion of the media was restive among conservatives long before Trump and Fox News exploited it. There will always be those who distrust any news that fails to confirm their worldview. But Trump’s “fake news” hyperbole has currency with many Americans because the political media too often lives up to their worst expectations.

Liberals Hype Comedian 'Collusion'

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

All is apparently right with the world when the networks work overtime to confirm the "effortless" coolness of Democratic leaders. But Republicans can never be normalized or humanized by late-night hosts. When Johnny Carson mocked President Ronald Reagan, it was gentle and had a "just kidding" vibe. All these years later, the left expects late-night comedians to lead a vicious campaign of character assassination to ruin Trump, which is why Fallon's hair mussing gets metaphorically reimagined as treason.

This Is Seth Meyers on Drugs

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

When CNN's Van Jones asked how Seth Meyers can still "find the funny," Meyers was more honest about his personal Resistance: "if you can point out how insane it all is, I think that helps keep you sane and keeps bringing you back. ... If you take a few days off criticizing what the president does, I feel like maybe that means he wins, and I don't want somebody to be so abnormal and have them win by us ignoring it." Trump. Must. Lose. That is the late-night "comedy" rule. That's the only consistency.
