President Trump: Don’t Nominate Judge Pryor, Get Your First Supreme Court Pick Right

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
We know where Judge Pryor stands, and while he has a good record on some of our issues, his willingness to create new protected classes and endow them with judicially created rights unmoored to legislation or the plain language of the Constitution and his failure to protect religious liberty clearly disqualifies him from consideration as a replacement for Justice Antonin Scalia.

Today is the Most Important Senate Hearing of the 21st Century

The Capitol switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) we urge you to call your Senators TODAY and urge them to vote for the confirmation of Senator Jeff Sessions as Attorney General.

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.

Bill O’Reilly Was Right

To the Soros-funded Far-Left “white” does not mean a person of the Caucasian race. “White” in radical construction means anyone of any race, creed, nationality, color, sex, or sexual preference who embraces the beliefs, such as capitalism and American exceptionalism, which to the radical Left are irredeemably evil and anyone who aligns with them is “white” in spirit and thus guilty of “white crimes.”

How Dr. Ben Carson can heal the wounds of Obama's racism

Helping our inner city poor effects our entire nation.  Done properly, helping the poor builds their self-esteem, provides opportunities and reduces costly welfare programs.  Equally important, it can remove HUD from meddling in local government and jeopardizing property rights.

God, Classrooms and Property Rights

When the Founders proclaimed that our rights came from our Creator, no future president or governing body could ever change, or rescind them, because they did not render them. This act ensured that our property rights were free from seizure... if we paid attention.

Would You Like A Government GPS Microchip Implanted?

Once the power to track someone is granted to the Department of Justice the criteria for tracking will surely expand. We urge CHQ readers to call Congress (the Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to tell your Representative to oppose H.R. 4919 when it comes up under suspension later today.

How to Make Ben Carson a Success at HUD

Now that Dr. Ben Carson has accepted Donald Trump’s offer to join his administration as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development we hope he understands that running HUD isn’t brain surgery, but it will still require a team of skilled surgeons, like Wendell Cox, and CHQ contributors John Anthony and Tom DeWeese, who know the issues and are prepared to excise the cancerous anti-constitutional policies Barack Obama has put in place.

Conservatives Demand Action Against Foreign-Funded Anti-Trump Violence

A group of conservative leaders is urging both houses of Congress to “establish and fund permanent standing committees to conduct hearings and investigations, take testimony, and issue reports on all foreign-funded influence operations inside the United States, and on organizations and movements and fraudulent tax-exempt foundations devoted to the overthrow of the Constitution of the United States.”

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.

Unions Plan Far-Left “National Day of Disruption” Today

The irony of today’s protests is that by demanding that illegal aliens be allowed to remain in the workforce the protesters are protesting in favor of one of the greatest wage depressing factors in today’s economy.

The Phony Recount: The Far-Left’s Real Strategy

Of course, it is easier to blame hacking or some kind of vote fraud than it is for Democrats to look in the mirror and honestly assess why they were so decisively defeated, but that’s not what is really going on here.

The Real Goal of the Anti-Trump Riots – Eliminate the Electoral College and the Constitution Part Two of Two

To understand the Electoral College one must realize that the Founders considered the states as the dominate power in the nation. The great mistake Electoral College opponents make is to believe the President was supposed to be elected by the people. It was never the plan.

The 'Constitution Spring'

Hugh Hewitt, Washington Examiner

With one vacancy at the Supreme Court and 99 below in the federal courts and the "Reid Rule" that ended the filibuster on appointments in place, the courts can recover quickly where just a week ago I thought the originalism movement near death.

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
In my new online series and companion booklet on the 2016 election conservative leaders weigh in to explain the threat the election of Hillary Clinton would pose to constitutional liberty, traditional American values and the conservative worldview, and why they plan to vote for Donald Trump.

Toss Personality. Use These Three Things To Judge Trump Versus Hillary

Jeffrey H. Anderson, The Federalist

This election is about more than manners or a battle of personalities. The stakes go far beyond that. Much depends on whether the next president will do the following three things: one, Preserve the Constitution; two, Restore our borders; and three, Repeal Obamacare.

Stop The Obama-Clinton Internet Freedom Giveaway

In a stealth move that would affect nearly every American home and business and compromise national security the Obama Administration is proceeding with an effort that began while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State to illegally giveaway control of the Internet to the likes of Iran, China and Russia.

No, the Constitution Does Not Bar ‘Religious Tests’ in Immigration Law

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

We should resist a categorical ban on Muslim immigration; but nothing in the Constitution prohibits the commonsense vetting of immigrants for beliefs that are antithetical to our principles, regardless of whether the immigrant perceives such beliefs as religious or political in nature.
