Ben Kamisar, The Hill

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus is struggling to control an escalating party debate over what rules should govern a contested Republican convention. It’s an unprecedented situation for Republicans, who for the last week have seen a war of words between their party’s chairman and Donald Trump, the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination.

#NeverHillary Lost During CNN Wisconsin Town Halls

In the aftermath of CNN’s “town hall” one has to ask again, why, despite years of evidence of the folly of giving that much power to the establishment media, did the RNC agree to let its candidates be subject to a three-hour long influence operation aimed at trivializing the remaining Republican presidential candidates on national TV? The only answer is that the establishment GOP remains the Party of Stupid.

It’s the Primaries, Stupid: The Most Important Office On The Ballot

Think of the tens of thousands of conservatives who have been turning out for rallies and events for the outsider candidates for President. If there are 186,000 precincts in America, and we elected 100,000 principled conservative Republican precinct committeemen across the country, conservatives could take control of a majority of the GOP state committees. And if we did that, we could then elect a majority (85+) of principled conservatives to the 162-member Republican National Committee, giving conservatives control of the RNC for the first time in the modern era.

Memo to House Republicans: Ryan’s Agenda Will Help Trump and Cruz

Speaker Ryan is completely tone deaf to what is driving the outsider candidacies of Ted Cruz and Donald Trump. They are not winning the Republican Primaries by campaigning against Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders – they are winning by campaigning against Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Reince Priebus and the rest of the feckless, principle-free Capitol Hill Republican leaders. Ryan’s plan for this year’s budget will only fuel their candidacies.

They rise and fall through the ups and downs of the media cycle, mechanically mouth the same positions that are at odds with the views of the Republican Party’s conservative grassroots base and are eventually whacked back down below ground level when conservatives understand they hold the same views on immigration, amnesty for illegal aliens and Common Core as do Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

Good News From Iowa, Bad News From The Republican National Convention

Despite the fact that outsiders Ted Cruz and Donald Trump are blowing away the competition in Iowa, the Republican establishment of lobbyists, elected officials and big donors has served notice it isn't going to let a little thing like losing elections get in the way of making sure one of its own is the 2016 Republican presidential nominee.

It’s the Primaries, Stupid: The Most Important Office On The Ballot

Phyllis Schlafly calls precinct committeeman and women “the most powerful political office in the world,” because they determine who gets the chance to be elected to office at every level of government. Now, here is the dirty little secret establishment Republicans don’t want you to know: as many as half of the Republican precinct committeeman slots, on average, are vacant.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus Owns Debate Disaster

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Democrats, not being the Party of Stupid, never buy into the idea that a “debate” is a nonpartisan affair. And that begs the question, “Who handed over the power to set the agenda in the Republican Primary to Hillary Clinton’s agents in the far-Left establishment media?” The answer is Reince Priebus, Chairman of the Republican National Committee. Here are three things you can do to help make sure this doesn't happen again.

CNBC GOP Debate: Party of Stupid Invites Attacks from Most Biased Media Panel Ever

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
What would you call a political party that hands the power to set the agenda during its presidential primaries to its sworn enemies in the liberal media, then doubles down to give the power to set the agenda in the waning days of the general election to a self-perpetuating “commission” of Washington, DC, progressive insiders? Some people might call that the national Republican Party -- I call it the Party of Stupid.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus has often been at odds with the conservative grassroots of the Republican Party, but in saying Obama's planned executive amnesty is “illegal” and “wrong,” and that Republicans ought to stop it “at all costs” he's on the same page with the grassroots and conservatives should welcome him to the fight.
