President Trump: Stop The FEMA Religious Discrimination

FEMA is acting like Obama is still in charge and enforcing a policy that stands in defiance of the recent Supreme Court ruling in Trinity Lutheran, which appears to protect the right of religious organizations to participate in widely available programs on equal footing with secular organizations.

Can We All Get Along?

William Murchison, The American Spectator

“Can we all get along?” Apparently not. The duty of the day  the political duty  is to punish critics and the dissimilarly minded. Some just plain don’t want to “get along,” lest amenability to free speech and spacious tolerance of others call into question their political sincerity. What would it take to fix this troubled America of ours? About a million fewer politicians is a goal to get us started.

Not Giving Up–Until Abortion Is Held in the Contempt It Deserves

Tony Perkins, CNS News

If abortion groups are trying to keep a low profile, they’re not doing a very good job of it. While Congress debates whether taxpayers should fund the likes of Planned Parenthood, the industry has spent the last six months trying to avoid headlines. That will be impossible now, thanks to a federal judge who’s threatening to send the man responsible for exposing the grisly business to jail.

Adam Carolla and Dennis Prager Film to Expose Silliness of Safe Spaces and Snowflakes

“This is a story that must be told because the future of our country literally depends on what happens on these campuses,” said Dennis Prager. “If these students don’t understand the very concept of free speech, our whole nation is in trouble.”

Campus High Jinks and the First Amendment

R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator

Neither Ann nor YAF should want anything to do with U.C. Berkeley. In fact, I cannot imagine any intelligent person wanting anything to do with most universities, much less wanting to lecture at one. Why would Ann Coulter want to speak there? Why would any intelligent person want to speak at almost any university in the country?

California Is Seceding from the Constitution

David French, National Review

California public officials at every level of state and local government have taken it upon themselves to replace core constitutional protections with their own radical vision of social justice. This isn’t federalism; it’s lawlessness. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land, and every state law, ordinance, regulation, or practice that conflicts its guarantees of individual liberty must be struck down.

California Shamelessly Persecutes Pro-Life Journalists

David French, National Review

Big Abortion holds the Democratic party in a vise grip, and it now may use that power to send a man to prison for embarrassing the nation’s largest abortion provider. Two young journalists may pay a steep price for doing work that the Left admires — at least when reporters are protecting ducks and chickens. But babies in the womb? They only have the right to die.

Facebook Labels ConservativeHQ “Malicious” Blocks Pro-Trump Content

Right before the election Facebook began to block CHQ content. In responses that sounded like they were written by Lois Lerner, we were assured that the problem had nothing to do with ConservativeHQ’s name or the conservative content of our articles, but the problem has continued to grow and now Facebook has labeled CHQ a "malicious" website.

Conservatives Urge President Trump To Act To Protect Religious Freedom

Saying “Naming the problem is the first step toward addressing it” the letter commended President Trump for identifying the threat, however, the letter also called attention to the ongoing threats to religious liberty that can only be reversed by Presidential action.

Disclosure Push Threatens Non-Profit Donors’ First Amendment Protections

Kathryn Watson, Daily Caller

California elected officials are leading a courtroom charge to bulldoze the 1958 NAACP v. Alabama Supreme Court decision that guarantees anonymity for non-profit donors who might otherwise be subjected to death threats and other forms of intimidation. The California attorney general’s (CAG) requirement that nonprofit groups disclose donor identities in order to solicit donations in the state threatens more than First Amendment rights.

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
The results of our campaign to turn the Catholic vote away from Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump speak for themselves.

In Florida (where 26 percent identify as Catholic) Trump won by 134,000 votes and in Michigan (where 23 percent identify as Catholic) Trump won by 10,704 votes.

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.

Trump Will Be Religion-Friendly

Bill Donohue, CNS News

President Ronald Reagan was not known to be a particularly religious man, yet he was one of the most religion-friendly presidents we've had in recent memory. All indications are that Trump will be more like Reagan, which is a good omen. When he is attacked for standing up for religious liberty—and he will be—it will be up to us to defend him. We plan to do so with vigor.

FedUp PAC Launches Unprecedented Catholic Voter Outreach

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
This election is winnable.  It is close enough to be turned around overnight.  The key to shifting the Catholic vote in Trump’s favor is to reach individual Catholics, and Catholic women with specific information and facts the media has not reported.  And through FedUp PAC there is a way to do that.

Trump Voters: Send Them A Message Nationalize The Election

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Despite the abysmal failure of the GOP’s national leadership to fight the campaign on national issues, the election has been at least partly nationalized on a broader theme – a simple rejection of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama’s failed policies and their stated goal of fundamentally changing America.

It’s Time To Fight And Win The Election We Have

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
In this battle there is only the victory or defeat of constitutional liberty and the rule of law. In this battle there is no third option, there is no compromise, there is no sitting out the election. I’m all in for Trump and Pence and I urge you to join me and them in making America great again.

As Election Nears #NeverTrump Become Less And Less Credible

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Why, in the face of the indisputable threats facing our country, would mature men and women who purport to be leaders of the Republican Party and the conservative movement do anything that strengthens Hillary Clinton, that gives her even one more vote?

Delegate Bob Marshall: Conservatives and Christians - Please Don’t Elect Hillary!

I understand the reluctance of some conservatives to vote for Trump, but no reason is sufficient to justify not voting for Trump-Pence because the consequences of Hillary’s policies would profoundly harm America and those we love!  To think that a Republican Congress would protect us from her actions is delusional and defies recent experience.

Hillary’s Most Dangerous Statement During Debate #3

Hillary Clinton's one short statement posed as a question, “What kind of rights will Americans have?” sums-up what’s at stake in this election.
