Jeb Hensarling

The Swamp Moves To Keep Its Power At The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

The Constitution is clear that the President is head of the Executive Branch of government, and as such the appointment of Mick Mulvaney as Acting Director is a welcome, and constitutional, step toward restoring the accountability and transparency that was missing when the CFPB was created.

A Few Conservatives Stand Against Pork Laden Disaster Relief Bill

Yesterday, 69 members of the House of Representatives, including our friends Representatives Louie Gohmert, Jeb Hensarling, Justin Amash, Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows voted against a disaster relief bill that goes far beyond disaster relief to throw good money after bad in federal subsidies and what amount to welfare payments.

My Conservative Dark Horse GOP VP Nominee: Rick Santorum

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Rick Santorum would, as no other candidate except Ted Cruz, help Trump complete the circle necessary to build a winning populist – conservative coalition by bringing culturally conservative pro-lifers into the fold. He knows Washington and Capitol Hill and certainly after his strong run in 2012 and his leadership in the Senate “could be viewed as somebody who could be president."

Part 4: Is There A Conservative Dark Horse On Trump’s VP Short List?

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
An examination of the pros and cons, strengths and weaknesses of the most obvious conservative prospects for Vice President left me wondering if there isn’t someone else – a true dark horse – whom Donald Trump ought to consider as part of his short list of prospective nominees for Vice President.

Part 3: Is There A Conservative Dark Horse On Trump’s VP Short List?

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
When we review the GOP VP prospects from the middle of the poll field Jim Jordan certainly stands out as a consistent conservative who lends credibility with movement conservatives to the Trump coalition, as one who adds to Trump’s brand in the must win state of Ohio and who has the legislative experience necessary to help Trump sell his program on Capitol Hill.

Part 2: Is There A Conservative Dark Horse On Trump’s VP Short List?

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Last week I asked CHQ readers if there was a conservative dark horse on Donald Trump’s VP short list, and I suggested eleven names of solid conservatives who seemed to fill Trump’s criteria -- so now it’s time to take a look at the list.

Does Trump’s VP Short List Include A Conservative Dark Horse?

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
The choice Donald Trump makes for Vice President will make – or break – the deal he needs to conclude with conservatives to cement a winning populist – conservative coalition. What Trump has said is indicative of his background as a CEO in this new age of creative disruption; he "wants a vice president who knows Washington, is able to deal with the Congress and could be viewed as somebody who could be president." In other words, a working VP who, with a Republican majority in Congress, bridges the full spectrum of right-of-center Washington.

Terrorism Fight Risks Shutdown

Scott Wong & Kevin Cirilli, The Hill

A fight over Terrorism Risk Insurance Act is delaying the spending bill. Dems are criticizing a push by Jeb Hensarling to add a provision to the package that they say would weaken the Dodd-Frank Wall St. Reform Law.

Pre-Election Conservative Agenda Item: Stop Ex-Im Bank Extension

Special interests, such as the US Chamber of Commerce are furious with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, claiming he is “appeasing the Tea Party” by joining the opposition to extending the Ex-Im bank, conservatives must work to hold and firm-up his support for our position. Tell Kevin McCarthy to oppose the reauthorization of the Ex-Im Bank: sign and share our petition now.

Petition Urging Kevin McCarthy to Oppose Reauthorization of The Ex-Im Bank

To:
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy

STAND AGAINST CORRUPTION, CORPORATE WELFARE, AND CRONYISM!

We the undersigned urge you to stand with Jeb Hensarling in opposition to the reauthorization of the Export – Import Bank.

Petition Opposing the Reauthorization of The Export-Import Bank

To:
All Members of U.S. House of Representatives Republican Conference
All Members of U.S. Senate Republican Conference 

Conservatives: Oppose Ex-Im Bank Reauthorization

Simply put, the Export-Import Bank has no business existing in a free society, regardless of who the Bank benefits, or who it harms, or how much money it makes. SIGN OUR PETITION OPPOSING THE REAUTHORIZATION OF THE EX-IM BANK.

Will Left Join Right to Kill Ex-Im Bank?

You would think that killing the Ex-Im Bank and ending this blatant example of corporate welfare would be a no brainer for Democrats and liberals, like Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, but so far the Left is MIA in this important fight against cronyism and corporate welfare.

Boehner to Stay On As Speaker?

Cristina Marcos, The Hill

With Eric Cantor no longer his heir apparent, John Boehner is now more likely to stay on as Speaker. Conservative Jeb Hensarling hasn't ruled out a bid for Speaker. But Other members doubt the conference will want to go through another round of tumultuous leadership elections.

Kevin McCarthy is Much Worse Than Eric Cantor

Kevin McCarthy epitomizes all that’s wrong with Washington. McCarthy only votes with conservatives 42 percent of the time compared to 53 percent for Cantor. That's pathetic, dangerous, and the best possible reason to replace the entire House GOP leadership now.

House Repub. Leadership: Where are the Conservatives?

Rick Manning, The Hill

No conservative candidate has announced for the majority leader spot, & the alternative for whip, Steve Scalise, is just a Boehner cheerleader. After all the concerns about the direction that Boehner's team is taking the House, no one is rising up to the challenge now that the opportunity is present.

How Conservatives Missed The Chance to Replace Cantor With A Conservative

Jonathan Strong, Breitbart

“Shame on all of us. Here's the conservative movement, and we were all asleep at the switch. We didn't galvanize behind a person; we waited until the die was cast. If conservatives are going to actually win some battles, then we damn well better get on our game,” a conservative lawmaker said.

Forget McCarthy or Pete Sessions As Majority Leader

A brief review of their records shows, Kevin McCarthy and Pete Sessions long ago disqualified themselves for the leadership of a House Republican Conference that was elected on a platform of governing America according to conservative principles. House Republicans should avoid elevating someone who is as bad as or worse than Eric Cantor is on the conservative agenda to replace him in the number two spot in the House Republican leadership.

Conservatives Float Alternative to Boehner

Deirdre Walsh, CNN

Conservatives unhappy with House Speaker John Boehner's leadership are looking for a replacement, and recent moves by Texas Republican Jeb Hensarling are fueling speculation he wants Boehner's job in the next Congress.
