Pro-Amnesty Virginia GOP Congressman Scott Taylor Flips Out

Virginia Congressman Scott Taylor is a classic RINO, telling his conservative constituents one thing about illegal immigration during the campaign and then voting the liberal line once he got to Washington. Getting caught by NumbersUSA caused him to totally flip-out and threaten to blow-up their headquarters.

Make Two Phone Calls To Stop Amnesty

We urge every CHQ reader to call two Congressmen – their own Representative and Virginia Congressman Scott Taylor (VA-2). The Toll-Free Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044. Tell them them you oppose amnesty for any class of illegal alien and that you will oppose any Member of Congress who votes for an amnesty bill.

The FBI-Led Coup Against President Trump

It is time for Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray to recover control of their agencies before the soft coup being led by Robert Mueller, James Comey and rogue FBI agent Peter Strzok engenders a real constitutional crisis.

President Trump Was Right To Revise National Monument Boundaries

Democratic Presidents used their purported authority under the Antiquities Act to lock-up millions of acres of land of dubious historical or environmental value. President Trump’s revision of the boundaries of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante monuments strikes the right balance between protection and development.

Trump Tweets Order To DOJ: Will Sessions Override Corrupt Dems And Comply?

As much as we respect Attorney General Jeff Sessions, President Trump wasn’t elected, and he wasn’t appointed Attorney General, to continue the Obama-era policies of defying congressional subpoenas. If Jeff Sessions can’t get his underlings to comply with Congressional subpoenas heads should roll – either theirs or his.

Outsider Mike Braun Charging Ahead In Indiana GOP Senate Primary

Outsider businessman Mike Braun yesterday released his second television and radio advertising flight of the campaign, titled “Outsider.” The ads will run statewide on broadcast television and radio. Braun is vying for the GOP nomination to take on first-term Democratic Senator Joe Donnelly.

Navigating the Middle East Mess Left by Obama and Bush

If President Trump is serious about countering Iranian aggression and repairing the mess in the Middle East left by Obama and Bush, then steps must be taken across the region, otherwise Iran will assert political and economic dominance over the entire northern tier of the Middle East and become the Middle East’s Shi’ite superpower.

Israel and Saudi Arabia vs Iran

Whether the growing anti-Iran coalition in the Middle East will solidify into a real counterweight to a potentially nuclear armed Iran remains to be seen, but one thing is clear: The battle with Israel and Saudi Arabia on one side and Iran on the other is heating up.

The Rules Don’t Apply To Democrat Bigwigs Like Rep. John Conyers

“Your story won’t do shit to him,” said a former staffer for Democratic Rep. John Conyers. “He’s untouchable.” Based on the Bill Clinton and Al Franken precedents it looks like the former staffer is right – at least if you are a powerful Democrat.

Job Creation First, Tax Reform Second In House Tax Bill

There is still a lot of work to be done to get a tax reform bill through the Senate, but the House bill is a start, and, with its extensive economic growth and job creation features, it is a better start than we initially thought it would be.

Conservatives In House of Representatives Go On Offense Against Mueller

A group of principled conservatives in the U.S. House of Representatives did what Speaker of the House Paul Ryan will never do – they went on offense against Robert Mueller and the rest of the insiders protecting Hillary Clinton and the worst villains of the Obama-era swamp.

First Impression: House GOP Tax Plan

The cost of government is not what it taxes, it is what it spends. The GOP tax plan is a start, but not a particularly bold or ambitious start, and it is only one part of a pro-growth economic formula. Spending has yet to be dealt with.

Hillary Clinton, Alger Hiss and the Schism in the American Soul

Just as in the 1950s the American Left and the Democratic Party tried to convince their fellow citizens that the objective truth of Communist penetration of the American government did not exist, so today's Democrats maintain the lie that the Clintons have done nothing worth investigating.

Poll: 68% of Voters Say Dems Own Obamacare

David Catron, The American Spectator

No amount of propaganda will make voters believe President Trump or the GOP created this mess. In fact, their primary complaint about the Republicans is that they haven’t repealed Obamacare yet. The Democrats and their media co-conspirators should be grateful that only two-thirds of the voters blame them for the risibly titled “Affordable Care Act.”

DOJ Lifts Gag Order On Clinton - Uranium One Informant: What’s Next?

Now that the gag order has been lifted it is time for Attorney General Sessions to choose a side in the much larger question: Why was the nondisclosure agreement put in place to begin with, who demanded the informant sign it, and what was their relationship with Bill and Hillary Clinton?

The Obama Administration’s Uranium One Scandal

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

The Obama administration, with Secretary Clinton at the forefront but hardly alone, was knowingly compromising American national-security interests. The administration green-lighted the transfer of control over one-fifth of American uranium-mining capacity to Russia, a hostile regime — and specifically to Russia’s state-controlled nuclear-energy conglomerate, Rosatom. Worse, at the time the administration approved the transfer, it knew that Rosatom’s American subsidiary was engaged in a lucrative racketeering enterprise that had already committed felony extortion, fraud, and money-laundering offenses.

Uranium One Means Mueller Must Recuse Himself from Russia Probe

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

We have heard disturbing allegations of this for some time, via "Clinton Cash" and even from the New York Times, but the new disclosure that a 2009 FBI investigation of this possible nuclear deal uncovered kickbacks, money laundering, and bribes from the Russian company involved (Rosatom) and yet it still was given the go-ahead by the Obama administration is -- I can think of no better word -- appalling.  How could it have come to pass that this occurred?  Why are we supposed to believe anyone now?

Why Conservative Scott Pruitt Is Trump’s Best Cabinet Secretary

Choosing conservative Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt as his EPA Administrator was one of President Trump’s more inspired choices. Through one brief memo Pruitt has made it clear the days of the government kowtowing to the environmental lobby are over.

Trump’s One Step At A Time Iran Policy Fails

President Trump’s step-by-step approach to trying to repair the follies of Obama’s nuclear weapons deal with Iran looks good on paper. However, it fails because to succeed it relies upon two feckless partners: the U.S. Congress and our European allies.
