Sheri Few: THE Conservative in the SC-5 Special Election

It isn’t every day that one of our friends, who is also one of the original #StopCommonCore moms, runs for Congress. So it with a special sense of urgency that we tell our conservative readers about Sheri Few, who is THE conservative candidate running in the special election to fill the vacancy created by Rep. Mick Mulvaney’s appointment to head President Trump’s Office of Management and Budget.

Establishment Republicans Eat Their Own

Two establishment Republican Senators have defected and plan to vote NO on the nomination of Betsy DeVos for Education Secretary. Their defection is truly bizarre because Ms. DeVos, at least on the surface, looks like President Trump's most establishment-friendly Cabinet nominee.

Draining the Cultural Swamp in our Children’s Minds

Placing government in its proper perspective and teaching our children why property and freedom are inseparable, are the first steps in clearing their minds of the cultural swamp.

The Mental Dismemberment of Children: Part Two

In November, 1992, following the election of Bill Clinton, Marc Tucker, president of the National Center for Education and the Economy (NCEE) wrote an 18-page letter to Hillary Clinton. He excitedly outlined the opportunity the Clintons now had to “remold the entire American system…” Today, the proposal Tucker made to Hillary Clinton that fateful day is now completely in place.

An Open Letter to President-elect Trump

President-elect Trump, we do not want to 'repeal and replace' Obamacare any more than we want to 'fix' Common Core, or 'tinker' with HUD's Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing. We want these centrally controlled mandates run down, rooted out wherever they lead, and vaporized until there is no trace they ever existed.

To Regain Conservative Trust Mike Pence Must Rediscover The Courage He Once Had

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Donald Trump could do a lot worse than Mike Pence as his running mate. However, if he expects that the selection of Pence will close the deal with conservatives he is sadly mistaken, because Pence has shown that he lacks one of Trump’s most admirable qualities; the willingness to fight for what he believes in.

Ted Cruz Is Absolutely Correct On Common Core

Joe Cunningham, RedState

Cruz’s plan to roll back the executive actions that have led to the abuse of education funding and eventually eliminate the Department of Education is the most sensible way to go about de-federalizing Common Core. Good on Cruz for knowing the problem, when it’s clear Trump and Kasich have no idea.

Marco Rubio = Jeb Bush without the good manners

If you take Jeb Bush’s policies and record on spending, education and amnesty for illegal aliens and add-in John McCain’s policies and record on amnesty for illegal aliens, bringing Muslims to America and engaging in endless and inconclusive adventures in the Middle East, and then add a dash of support for the Obama and Hillary Clinton disasters in Libya and Syria, plus a strong dose of their views on amnesty and funding left-wing racist organizations, you don’t get a limited government constitutional conservative – what you get is Marco Rubio – Jeb Bush, without the integrity and good manners.

Who Is Lying Now Mr. Trump? Cruz Tops Florida Family Policy Council Voting Guide

Especially in this election, where Donald Trump has been throwing accusations of lying against any candidate who challenges him on his outrageous comments, record of supporting liberal candidates and causes, and flip-flops on cultural issues the Florida Family Policy Council’s voter guide is a well-researched haven of fact in the toxic morass of baseless charges of lying that Trump has created. We urge CHQ readers from every state to review it and forward it to their cultural conservative friends.

Bush, Rubio and Kasich: The Establishment’s Whack-a-Mole Candidates

They rise and fall through the ups and downs of the media cycle, mechanically mouth the same positions that are at odds with the views of the Republican Party’s conservative grassroots base and are eventually whacked back down below ground level when conservatives understand they hold the same views on immigration, amnesty for illegal aliens and Common Core as do Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

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.

Meet the New Boss, Same as the Old Boss: Jeb Bush's Pre-Debate Word Salad

In evaluating Jeb Bush’s pre-debate word salad conservatives should get out their old record players, crank-up the volume and give a close listen to the lyrics of the rock anthem “Won’t Be Fooled Again” by The Who:

We don't get fooled again
Don't get fooled again
No, no!

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. 

Jindal's Education Plan: Less Washington, Less Jeb Bush

Josh Kraushaar, National Journal

Jindal will reiterate his opposition to Common Core—a not-too-subtle rebuke of GOP presidential front-runner Jeb Bush's support for the educational standards that were once widely supported by most governors of both parties.

Common Core & The 2016 GOP Candidates

Erick Erickson, Red State

We asked the Republicans who met at the Iowa Freedom Summit what they thought about Common Core. Let’s just say the conservatives running are not exactly fans of Common Core.

Sen. Ted Cruz: GOP Must Keep Promises or Risk Getting ‘Walloped’ in Future Elections

In remarks to Heritage Action, Ted Cruz said that Republicans should take this opportunity to lead with "a big, bold agenda that focuses on jobs, on liberty and on security.”

10 Common Core Promoters Raking In Big Cash

Joy Pullmann, The Federalist

The people who wrote and pushed Common Core on the nation are making bank while the nation’s kids, teachers, and parents writhe in the grip of their curriculum contraption.

Part One: The PIG Gobbles Thanksgiving Bounty

In a three-part series themed on George Orwell’s Animal Farm a Northern Virginia Tea Party patriot shows how progressives, far from being ascendant, have sown the seeds of future electoral losses. In Part One, the author argues that while Barack Obama is correctly perceived as a threat to our nation’s Constitutional order, he is merely the “out-product” of a system that has been built for 100 years by the progressive movement in America.

Legislation Lets States Cut Ties Between Common Core, Fed. Grants

Kelsey Harkness, Daily Signal

Sen. David Vitter, R-La., has drafted legislation to prohibit the fed. gov't from “mandating, incentivizing or coercing” states to adopt the national education standards known as Common Core.
