Conservatives

#HoldYourNose2014

The only way to advance conservative government and to stop Obama's campaign to fundamentally change America is to empower Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Mike Lee and Jeff Sessions with a Republican majority in the Senate.

With polls indicating a Repub. sweep of statewide offices in TX, two protégés of Tea Party favorite U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz are poised to take over powerful posts and push the already conservative state further to the right.

Cruz Reveals How the GOP Can Stop Hillary Clinton

Matthew Burke, Tea Party News Network

“The only way for Repubs. to win, I believe, is to run a candidate who runs a strong conservative with a positive, optimistic, hopeful message,” Cruz recommended. “Repubs. win when we draw a clear distinction. We lose when we move to the mushy middle and we muddle the differences.” 

Civil War Looms for GOP

Alexander Bolton, The Hill

The right argues that GOP leaders should forget about playing small ball & use momentum from the midterms to put big checks on O's agenda. “The American people don’t want Repubs. to become appeasers and supporters of a watered down Obama agenda.”

CHQ Joins Phil Robertson in Endorsing Zach Dasher to Defeat the ‘Kissing Congressman’

Phil Robertson has cut a couple TV ads touting his nephew, Zach Dasher, for Congress in Louisiana’s 5th district. Following Robertson’s lead, ConservativeHQ.com is formally endorsing Dasher as well – not due to his membership in a famous family, but because he’s the principled conservative in the race.

Who Are The Most (and Least) Conservative Senators?

Michael W, Red State

Heritage Action for America provides a scorecard that helps us conservatives assess which Congresspersons in Washington are standing for our principles and values and to what extent.

Rove Lied, Republican Brand Died

C. Edmund Wright, Breitbart

Perhaps this astonishing lesson in moral and political failure will finally wake up donors & decision makers for the GOP to the fact that Rove & his tactics aren't the way to win elections. It's time for conservatives to do for the truth what the liberal media and the Dems do for the lie, which is to repeat it over & over again.

What’s Wrong With Common Core? Let’s ‘Understand’ the Ways

Common Core isn't integration of educational skills; it's the disintegration of educational disciplines. Even on its own terms, the Common Core is rotten.

Cruz and Cornyn, Bold Colors vs. Pale Pastels

Tony Lee, Breitbart

Sen. Ted Cruz wants Republicans to try to repeal Obamacare and stop President Barack Obama's executive grants of amnesty. Sen. John Cornyn believes Republicans will only win the White House in 2016 if conservative stalwarts like Cruz water down their bold conservatism and compromise. Who’s right?

A Vote for Democrats is ‘A Vote for President Obama’

Moe Lane, Red State

Freedom Partners Action Fund has started a $6.5 million ad buy hitting Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, New Hampshire (online only), and North Carolina, where conservatives lay it on the line: voting for a Democrat is the same as voting for the failed president.

Mark Levin Knows Precisely What Democrats Need

Real Clear Politics (video)

Conservative radio host Mark Levin appeared on Sean Hannity’s Fox TV show and weighed-in on current issues and what the Democratic Party needs from this election. In typical Levin fashion, he got right to the point and didn’t mince words.

Paul Teller is Ted Cruz’s Agitator in Chief

Alexander Bolton, The Hill

If personnel is policy, then there’s little doubt Sen. Ted Cruz’s choice to make Paul Teller his Chief of Staff was designed with stirring the pot in mind. Teller has been challenging the establishment and pushing conservative policy for years and seems to be a good fit for Cruz.

Remembering Reagan’s ‘Time for Choosing’ Speech

Jeffrey Lord, American Spectator

This coming October 27th marks the fiftieth anniversary of that speech, the one that history records as launching Reagan’s own stunningly successful political career that saw him just two years later elected governor of California in a million-vote landslide.

Don’t Ignore the Races Down the Ballot

Bruce Walker, American Thinker

Winning a large majority of sub-governor races in individual states lays the foundation for the series of future electoral triumphs that, alone, can finally achieve the broad and deep conservative revolution our nation desperately needs.

GOP Needs More Than a Win – It Needs a Mandate

Jenny Beth Martin, The Hill

Reagan did not win 49 of 50 states in 1984 by laying low.  Republicans did not register historic congressional gains in 1994 and 2010 by keeping quiet.  These landslides were won because conservatives proudly announced their ideas for a better, stronger America.

David Perdue and a Georgia Runoff

Erick Erickson, Red State

Republican U.S. Senate candidate David Perdue could have avoided a runoff in Georgia simply by accepting assistance from other prominent party members in the state, writes Erickson, but arrogance and a go it alone attitude may deprive him of what should have been an easy win.

Rush: The Republican Party isn’t Presenting an Alternative

Rush Limbaugh, RushLimbaugh.com

Voters never, other than Reagan, the lone example, never affirmatively vote for conservatism because it's never really presented to them.  It's presented to them by me and Fox News on some occasions and other so-called new media, but it's not presented to voters by the Republican Party.

Top Ten Reasons for Mitt to Run...AWAY!

C. Edmund Wright, American Thinker

We hate to even think about the 2016 election with the 2014 mid-terms still weeks away, but this nightmarish Groundhog Day idea of Romney 2016 just will not go away.

Ted Cruz and the Real ‘War on Women’

Steve Deace, Townhall

Ted Cruz is a master at reversing the Left’s premise and using it against them.  Detailing what Obama’s policies have done to women and families, and then discussing the powerful relational impact of the most important women in his own life.

Rove’s Crossroads Unlikely to Play in 2016 Primaries

Tony Lee, Breitbart

Karl Rove’s Crossroads group spent $450 million on the 2012 election cycle – with no wins. After recalibrating to attack conservatives in 2014 primaries, donations dried up soon after. Now, the group announced it will likely stay out of the 2016 presidential primaries.
