John McCain is Shocked, Shocked to Discover Russian Meddling in U.S. Elections

Senator McCain is shocked at the hack of a private party in which no national secrets were compromised or business technologies stolen. Rather, the release actually benefited the American public because the information obtained highlighted the sleaze surrounding the Clintons.

Will Trump Defy John McCain and Marco Rubio?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Early in his presidency, if not before, Trump is going to have to impose his foreign policy upon his own party and, indeed, upon his own government. Or his presidency will be broken, as was Lyndon Johnson’s. A good place to begin is by accepting the McCain-Marco challenge and nominating Rex Tillerson for secretary of state. Let’s get it on.

Obama’s Fair Words and Foul Deeds on the National Security Transition

The last-minute plan to reorganize the U.S. Cyber Command and the National Security Agency looks a whole lot more like retromincturation by Obama and his defense and intelligence team than it does a well-thought-out plan to improve our national security in an age of increasingly sophisticated cyber warfare attacks.

We Conservatives Must Nationalize the Election or Lose

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
We conservatives must take action NOW to nationalize this election. The defeats of Jerry Ford, George HW Bush, Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney, as well as the 1998 and 2006 congressional elections are proof that running a content-free campaign and refusing to nationalize the election is a losing strategy for Republicans, especially in a “change election” year like 2016.

The Real Conservatives in Tomorrow’s Arizona and Florida Primaries

We endorse conservative Dr. Kelli Ward against aging and out of touch Sen. John McCain in the Arizona Senate primary. We endorse and recommend retention of Rep. Paul Gosar in Arizona’s Fourth Congressional District. We endorse former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino in Florida’s 19th Congressional District and we recommend conservatives Mary Thomas for Congress in FL-02 and Brian Mast for Congress in District 18.

In a blow to the reelection bids of establishment Republicans Speaker Paul Ryan and Senator John McCain Republican nominee for President Donald Trump has pointedly refused to endorse either of them.

Obama’s New GOP Henchmen

Laura Ingraham, Lifezette

If the GOP turns on itself and its base at this point, it will do untold damage to itself for years to come. There won't be any conservatism, period. We will be a liberal country. There will be no escape — any states that try to pass conservative legislation will soon find that their laws have been struck down by Hillary's judges.

Trump declines to endorse Ryan, McCain

Harper Neidig, The Hill

Trump said he is "not quite there yet" on backing House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and sharply criticized Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). Trump seemed to be alluding to a may interview with CNN where Ryan similarly said he was not "ready" to back Trump for president, after the businessman became the GOP's presumptive nominee.

John McCain: The Muslim Brotherhood’s Senator

“The level of self-deception necessary to misunderstand the Muslim Brotherhood verges on a psychosis," said Newt Gingrich. Yet time and again Senator John McCain has risen to publicly, and on very personal terms, defend Muslim Brotherhood connected individuals from scrutiny of their association with the largest and most dangerous jihadi organization.

Endorsement: Dr. Kelli Ward for US Senate

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
You would have to go back to the 1960s and early 1970s and the days when Nelson Rockefeller was Governor of New York to find a more anti-conservative Republican than Senator John McCain of Arizona. Which is why, as Senator McCain seeks an unprecedented sixth term in the US Senate, we are pleased to endorse Dr. Kelli Ward to replace him.

A Much Needed History Lesson For Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Scott Walker

Republican primary voters tend toward primogeniture and they may make a cause out of a closely fought loss, as Nixon’s supporters did over his 1960 loss to John F. Kennedy and Reagan’s conservative supporters did in 1976 after he was denied the Republican nomination, but it appears that general election voters have a higher standard and they will never forgive or look at a sore loser as worthy of the highest office in the land.

Conservatives, I Urge You to Join Me: Unite Behind Trump and Pence

By: Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Friends, we've had our howl of frustration, but this is now a binary choice: Trump and Pence vs. Hillary Clinton. 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.

Conservatives: We Need To Fight And Win The Election We Have

Some of our conservative friends can’t seem to stop wishing for the election they want, instead of concentrating on winning the election they have. However, despite this lack of ability to focus on winning, the tools to win are actually there, in a way they haven’t been available to Republicans in the past several presidential election cycles.

McCain: Mike Lee 'signing the death warrants' of American allies

Joel Gehrke, Washington Examiner

McCain's charge came at the end of a fight on the Senate floor between Lee, McCain and South Carolina Republican Lindsey Graham over which amendments to the National Defense Authorization Act should receive a vote.

Trump Haters On The Right Versus Reality

Trump haters on the right seem to think that the battle to govern America according to conservative principles is over – and nothing could be further from the truth. If Donald Trump was not your candidate – so be it. But the battle to govern America according to conservative principles is hardly over – it has just begun -- it’s time for people truly interested in the future of this country to stop trashing Trump and to start trying to influence him.

Erick and Bill Have Jumped the #NeverTrump Shark

Two conservative thinkers for whom we have a great deal of respect, Bill Kristol and Erick Erickson, have finally jumped the shark and entered a bizarre new #NeverTrump political dimension where Mitt Romney is a viable candidate for president and forming a third party five months before the election is a realistic means of electing an alternative to Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

McCain: GOP must 'listen to people' who back Trump

Dan Friedman, Washington Examiner

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz, broke Sunday with GOP colleagues including ally Lindsey Graham by suggesting Republicans rally behind Donald Trump.

Marco Rubio = Jeb Bush without the good manners

If you take Jeb Bush’s policies and record on spending, education and amnesty for illegal aliens and add-in John McCain’s policies and record on amnesty for illegal aliens, bringing Muslims to America and engaging in endless and inconclusive adventures in the Middle East, and then add a dash of support for the Obama and Hillary Clinton disasters in Libya and Syria, plus a strong dose of their views on amnesty and funding left-wing racist organizations, you don’t get a limited government constitutional conservative – what you get is Marco Rubio – Jeb Bush, without the integrity and good manners.

In Celebration Of Ted Cruz’s Tough Tactics In Iowa

Much as the Iowa losers would like to make it otherwise, Hillary Clinton is going to run a smart, technologically savvy, in the moment, ruthless wedge-issue-driven campaign and trying to defeat the Clinton machine using the rules of etiquette as taught at a finishing school for little girls is a sure formula for defeat.

Rick Santorum’s Bizarre and Hypocritical Endorsement of Marco Rubio

Rick Santorum attempted to present himself as an advocate for the all but forgotten interests of America’s working men and women, yet when Santorum exited the campaign he hypocritically chose to endorse Senator Marco Rubio – the leading advocate of open borders and amnesty for illegal aliens; the very policies that Santorum campaigned against.
