The Conservative Cause Is Bigger Than Any Two Men

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Looking toward the 2018 primaries, the rupture of relations between Trump and Bannon has created a temporary leadership vacuum in the conservative – populist movement, so it is up to each of us to step up and do what we can to fill that vacuum; the need for top quality conservative candidates for every office is too great, our goals are too important, and our mission is too urgent for this battle of personalities to slow us, let alone to stop us.

No Mr. President We Don’t 'Hope' To Work Out A Deal With Democrats

President Trump has completely confused many of his most ardent supporters with conflicting statements about the future of Obama’s anti-constitutional Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that grants de facto amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.

How Complicated Can Paying For A Border Wall Be?

The problem that is complicated and stumping the Republican establishment's Capitol Hill "leadership" is not building the wall, it is doing a deal to grant amnesty to those covered by Obama’s anti-constitutional DACA program – constructing the wall is the easy part.

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.

How Conservatives Can Make 2018 Better Than 2017

It’s the Primaries, stupid! In most states every office from Governor to precinct committeeman in your precinct will be on the ballot in the 2018 primary. If you are represented by a RINO or an ineffective elected offical we urge you to go to your local elections office and pick up the paperwork to file TODAY.

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.

Democrat Doug Jones Comes Out In Support Of DACA: Miss Roy Moore Yet?

Whether Doug Jones has an R or a D next to his name in the Senate Directory doesn’t really matter to the Republican establishment that shares Jones’ worldview and policy preferences on issues from DACA and illegal immigration, to the growth of government, to funding Planned Parenthood.

Thanks a Lot, Chauncey Gardner

Scott McKay, The American Spectator

This entire debacle was an exercise in denying the people what they wanted, not to mention attempting to cover up their own mistakes. That NRSC chairman Cory Gardner, McConnell, and the rest of the Establishment mouthpieces have fanned out across the media spectrum to tell GOP voters of the virtues of Tuesday night’s result is perfect evidence of this. This debacle constitutes a betrayal, witting or otherwise, of Republican voters and donors alike, and it’s time for McConnell to step down as the majority leader.

Mitch McConnell Is The Reason Doug Jones Is A Senator

Jordan Gehrke, The Federalist

Because of the toxicity of the GOP establishment brand today, meddling in primaries actually makes it more likely, not less likely that bad candidates will win primaries in the future. Instead of primaries being about the candidates and their flaws, going forward, they will be about Mitch McConnell and K Street as long as he publicly interferes. The question now is: will McConnell learn this lesson? How many more seats do we have to lose?

The Uniparty Defeats Roy Moore And Trump Agenda

The game here isn’t electing Republicans – it is “crushing” conservatives and Tea Partiers. What the Uniparty is interested in is maintaining their own power and a Roy Moore victory would have been a serious impediment to their power, but Doug Jones is merely another Democrat to cut a deal with.

Alabama: Send Them A Message On Tuesday

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.

Trump Endorses Judge Roy Moore – RNC To Back Moore Campaign

President Trump tweeted on Monday, “We need his vote on stopping crime, illegal immigration, Border Wall, Military, Pro Life, V.A., Judges 2nd Amendment and more" before he formally endorsed Judge Moore during a telephone call.

McConnell Caves To Conservatives Stops Opposing Judge Moore

In a stunning reversal of his anti-constitutional attempt to be the one who decides who does and does not get to serve in the United States Senate, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has reversed his call for conservative Judge Roy Moore to step aside.

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.

Kasich Republican Lee Busby Tries To Derail Judge Roy Moore

Alabama Senate write-in candidate Lee Busby says he's a John Kasich Republican -- meaning he's for amnesty for illegal aliens, same-sex marriage and opposes building the wall on our southern border?

Republicans flee from McConnell in 2018 primaries

Kevin Robillard, Politico

Heading into the 2018 elections, only one Republican Senate candidate nationwide has pledged unequivocally to back Mitch McConnell as majority leader. Most Republicans facing competitive primaries are hemming and hawing, admiring McConnell’s political savvy and fundraising apparatus — but also looking warily at his sinking approval ratings both with Republicans and the broader electorate.

GOP Establishment Risking Senate Majority By Continuing To Oppose Judge Moore

With less than three weeks to go until the Dec 12 Alabama Special Election the GOP establishment continues to entertain the fantasy that they can keep the Alabama Senate seat in GOP hands and defeat Judge Roy Moore by mounting a write-in campaign for a nonexistent Republican candidate.

Alabama Democrat Doug Jones: Right-to-Life Begins at Birth

“Every election counts in the race for life,” Evangelist Dr. Alveda King says. “Judge Roy Moore stands for the sanctity of human life from the womb to the tomb. Doug Jones does not. We must always vote our values. Life is a civil right.”

Faith Leaders And Women Of Faith Rally For Judge Roy Moore

"There's been comments about me taking a stand," said Judge Roy Moore at a press conference hosted by a dozen national faith leaders. "I'll quit standing when they lay me in that box and put me in the ground."
