Trump-onomics 101

The forgotten working folks who voted for Donald Trump are seeing the benefit of his economic policies in more hours at the factories and other businesses that employ them, higher wages and more job security in the outlook for new orders.

Trump Voters Winners In First 24 Hours Of Tax Reform

The Fake News media can kvetch about “trickle down” economics all they want, but $1,000 bonuses to Trump voters – frontline workers and managers – and companies announcing $15 an hour minimum wage is a huge political win for President Trump, and a big quality of life win for America’s hard-pressed working families.

The GOP Establishment Is About To Blow-Up The Pro-Growth Tax Plan

We urge CHQ readers to call their Representative and Senators through the Toll-Free Capitol Switchboard at 1-866-220-0044. Tell them to lower the corporate tax rate to 20 percent, keep the special rate for repatriation at 12 percent and to keep the focus of the tax reform bill on job creation and economic growth, not class warfare.

The Jonestown GOP

In its blind failure to recognize its dire peril if it fails to pass tax reform, Capitol Hill’s Republican establishment is beginning to look a lot like the unfortunate souls at Jonestown who “drank the Kool-Aid” and committed mass suicide.

Voters Sent The Republicans A Wake-Up Message

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Maybe the most powerful line in American politics is “send them a message” and on Tuesday the voters sent Republicans a series of unmistakable messages.

Kelli Ward Takes Commanding Lead In AZ GOP Primary

Even with Dr. Kelli Ward leading the GOP field and likely Democratic rival Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, the Senate Leadership Fund, which is run by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s allies, has said it will do everything it can to ensure Ward is not the next senator from Arizona.

The Republican Party is a broken marriage

Editors, Washington Examiner

The relationship between Trump and the congressional GOP cannot become functional unless Trump decides it's more important than being the best counterpuncher. Without a newfound and unexpected round of self-examination, they cannot govern together or improve the lives of those who voted for Trump and those who voted against him.

We Need More Conservatives Running For The U.S. Senate

In 1977 and 1978 conservative giant Howard Phillips visited every congressional district in America to recruit candidates. During a trip to New Hampshire in 1977, only five people showed up for a meeting. One of them was Gordon Humphrey, who volunteered to run against Democrat Thomas J. McIntyre and became one of three New Right senators elected in 1978.

President Trump’s Arizona Speech Drives Left Nuts

Trump’s Phoenix speech was good mostly because Trump showed he could still be Trump, and that he wasn’t going to be cowed into abandoning his base – and because along the way he delivered an epic put down to the national media’s Charlottesville narrative.

Charlottesville, Charlottesville, Charlottesville

President Trump's remarks about Charlottesville are controversial only because he refuses to buy into the caustic left’s narrative. Jeff Flake and other DC insiders are blind to this, which is why Trump will again win this debate.

FedUp PAC Poll: Conservatives Say McConnell Must Step Down

Jeff Flake Is Filling In for John McCain as a Liberal Media Darling

Stephen Kruiser, PJ Media

Flake has been a little too cozy with McCain since he got to Washington. What's galling to those who grew up in Barry Goldwater's Arizona is Flake's none-too-subtle implication that he is somehow picking up Goldwater's mantle of conservatism. He's got an ego that's really out of sync with his accomplishments. And he couldn't even think of an original title for his book.

Jeff Flake: A Book By A Fake Conservative With No Conscience

We urge CHQ readers to skip Flake’s screed against the voters he has failed as a member of Congress and read the original Goldwater – Bozell version of Conscience of a Conservative instead.

Conservatives Giving Senate GOP One Last Chance On Obamacare Repeal

This is the last chance Capitol Hill’s establishment Republicans have to get right with the GOP’s conservative majority. If this Obamacare repeal bill fails then it will be obvious to all that the only sure path to repeal Obamacare, reform the tax code, rebuild our economy and build the border wall lies through the Republican Primary Elections.

Cruz Endorses Latest Senate Obamacare Repeal, So Do We

The latest Senate Obamacare repeal bill is, given the weak-kneed GOP leadership, as close to repeal as we're going to get. Ultimately, the final answer to repealing Obamacare and restoring a free market in health insurance is to be found in only one place: The Republican primary elections.

Conservatives Got Aggressive And McConnell Blinked

The problem in the Senate Republican Conference is Mitch McConnell’s unwillingness to actually pursue conservative alternatives to Obamacare. We've won one round, now it's time for conservatives to hang tough and force McConnell to move the Consumer Freedom Option.

Cruz and Flake need to get in line, Blackburn says

Rudy Takala, Washington Examiner

Republicans should stick to message, Tennessee Rep. Marsha Blackburn said on Thursday, adding that it was "inappropriate" for party leaders to work against a nominee who had been duly chosen by the electorate.

Rubio, Flake, Hatch Back Bill to Increase Guest-Worker Visas

Tony Lee, Breitbart

3 Repub. Senators joined 3 Dems to introduce legislation (Immigration Innovation (“I-Squared”) bill) that would expand the number of guest-workers for the tech industry even though there is a surplus of American high-tech workers.
