The House votes today on #Ryancare. In his desperation to maintain federal government control of the health insurance and health care markets establishment Republican Speaker Paul Ryan is turning more and more to the ugly corruption of the Democrats’ former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. We urge CHQ readers to contact their Representative to demand they vote NO on this corrupt disaster.

In going to the extreme in opposing Neil Gorsuch Democrats are searching for rock bottom. Plus, What will the repercussions be for the Republicans who vote for Ryancare?, and, To have higher quality public debate America needs higher quality and relevant education.

Here’s hoping all of that information about the mess of Obamacare Rep. David Schweikert has shared over the years inspires him to keep his promise to not support measures that do not successfully and smartly repeal and replace the worst health care bill in history.

Much as we’d like President Trump to succeed, providing subsidized health care to illegal aliens is too steep a price for conservatives to pay to support the President in his optimistic push to use Speaker Paul Ryan’s disastrous Obamacare 2.0, Rinocare or #Ryancare bill to repeal and replace Obamacare.

The Supreme Court has interpreted the Constitution’s Due Process Clause to require judges to act impartially and with the appearance of impartiality. The conduct of Judge Chuang raises serious questions about his impartiality. We urge Congress to hold hearings on Judge Chuang's impeachment at its earliest opportunity.

It’s well past time sanity was restored to the Senate confirmation process – let the dance end. Plus, Is Trump a failure as a negotiator if the Ryancare bill dies?, and, Stakes heat up on Ryancare as Trump warns conservative holdouts.

CHQ Chairman Richard A. Viguerie last week received the American Association of Political Consultants Lifetime Achievement Award at the Association’s annual Hall of Fame ceremony and luncheon. In accepting the award Mr. Viguerie remarked humorously that he has raised millions of dollars campaigning against many of the individuals in the room.

The only parts of Obamacare establishment Republicans want to repeal are the parts in the current House bill, they are perfectly happy to keep the regulations and other Big Government parts of Obamacare and have no intention of establishing a free market health care and health care insurance system.

Gorsuch and Comey might have dominated TV but Ryancare is still the hottest topic in Washington. Plus, Democrats obsess – again -- on Russia during Comey testimony before the House, and, Democrats give truth to Mark Twain saying about idiots and Congress.

Mark Skoda and the patriots of the America First Federation have it exactly right. We urge the House of Representatives to immediately prepare articles of impeachment against Judges Robart, Watson and Chuang and to hold hearings at the earliest possible hour.

With the Gorsuch hearings set to begin, liberals prime their First Amendment protected slime machine. Plus, Crooked Hillary comes out of the woods – what’s she up to now?, and, Is the very public fight over Ryancare actually good for the GOP?

Religions are not equal when it comes to evaluating refugees. There are non-sectarian reasons to favor members of minority faiths, especially in the Middle East where religious minorities have suffered disproportionately.

    When a normally garrulous and gossipy media turns taciturn, the explanation is usually political correctness. In this case, an extreme sensitivity to Islam has a chastening effect on reporters who would typically exert themselves for a scoop. Even many hours after the mayhem, few of their stories contained any descriptions of the attacker from witnesses.

    Any legitimate investigation by a congressional committee or anyone else must encompass both Obama and Trump.  This is a two-part story.  If both parties are not investigated -- they cannot be separated -- this is no more than a partisan show.  Further, the press cannot even faintly be trusted to investigate or adjudicate this matter.  Their bias is so overwhelming it would sink the Titanic twice.

  • Scott Pruitt, USA Today

    The Trump administration is going to do things differently. That includes a more transparent EPA. Americans can have both a clean and healthy environment and good paying manufacturing jobs. America is going to create jobs and grow the economy while at the same time be good stewards to our natural resources.

  • Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness

    Ironically, Trump’s herky-jerky warnings about redefining strategic missions and meeting required contributions may jolt the alliance into reform—in a way that past American presidents’ mellifluous but empty rhetoric about the fissures within and the contradictions of NATO seem to have only made things worse.

  • L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

    The defunding of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting is long past overdue. No president, including Ronald Reagan, has seriously pushed an immediate winding down of this corrupt and outdated waste of taxpayer funds. Who would have ever imagined that Donald Trump would be the first to do it? Let the left-wing billionaires fund this left-wing propaganda. Conservatives are tired of funding our own (literal) demonizers.

  • Editors, Washington Examiner

    There's plenty of reason to doubt that this partial repeal — the bill repeals all of Obamacare's tax hikes but not its regulations — is "the best bill that can pass." For one thing, it's unclear that partial repeal will get more Republican votes than full repeal would. Second, we don't know whether Republicans can repeal the bill through budget reconciliation because Republicans haven't tried to do it.

  • William Murchison, The American Spectator

    The left understands Gorsuch to represent the non-political temperament it would exclude from the court, so as to broaden the ability to impose on the American people (bless their pointed heads) plans and objectives for which they have not asked. The left, this time, may not get away with it. Too many of us see what its spokesmen and propagandists are really up to.

  • Terence P. Jeffrey, CNS News

    Gorsuch's belief that the both the Declaration and the 14th Amendment reflect the same understanding of human life that caused him to conclude that "the intentional taking of human life by private persons is always wrong" cannot be reconciled with Roe's determination that the Constitution created a right to take a human life. Many innocent lives may now hinge on whether Justice Gorsuch acts on the court in keeping with this principle he championed as a private citizen.

    The deeper question is this conundrum:  Is Mr. Kim simply acting out of fear (paranoid or otherwise) that we and/or others will attack him and dismantle his surreal police state or is he just crazy enough to attack us first, thinking he can win? Or both? Whatever the case, he definitely has our attention.  Or should.

  • Charles Hurt, Washington Times

    Mr. Comey’s pursuit of Mr. Trump during a presidential election is one of two things. Either it is a politically charged investigation launched by one sitting president into his greatest political enemy as that enemy tries winning the White House. Or it is Watergate — ten thousandfold.

  • Jonathan S. Tobin, National Review

    The notion that Russian hacking of John Podesta’s e-mails was the real reason for Trump’s astonishing victory requires a suspension of disbelief that goes beyond blind partisanship. Whatever the Russians did or didn’t do, Hillary Clinton lost and Donald Trump won the 2016 election on their own. Congress and the FBI do well to investigate what the Russians were up to last year. But claims that they stole the election are the laments of sore losers, not the product of rational analysis.

    "The President looks forward to meeting with his NATO counterparts to reaffirm our strong commitment to NATO, and to discuss issues critical to the alliance, especially allied responsibility-sharing and NATO's role in the fight against terrorism," the White House Office of the Press Secretary said in a statement.

  • Editors, New York Sun

    Mr. Trump ran as a president prepared to challenge some of our long-standing institutions, and the idea that our courts should defer to administrators certainly deserves to be one of them. So this is a question to hearken to in the hearings on the nomination that begin this week. Is Gorsuch Hamburgerian? If the hearings suggest that yes, Judge Gorsuch is an admirer — or follower — of Professor Hamburger, then the Senate should confirm him forthwith.

  • George Neumayr, The American Spectator

    If the Republicans had a real counterpart to Schiff, they would have loudly pointed out that Comey’s mere confirmation of an investigation vindicates the thrust of Trump’s tweets. They could have spent the hearing drawing out the implications of that admission. No matter how the Dems and the media spin it, no matter how many semantic games they play, Obama authorized a multi-agency investigation into a political opponent, which necessarily involved violations of that opponent’s privacy.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

    If the investigation of Russiagate turns up no link between Trump and the pilfered emails, Democrats will have egg all over their faces. And the Democratic base will have to face a painful truth. Vladimir Putin did not steal this election. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama lost it. Donald Trump won it fair and square. He is not an “illegitimate” president.
