TAKEOVER

The Party of Stupid Allows Clinton Foundation Member Matt Lauer to Moderate Debate

What would make Republican candidates for President agree to a debate moderated by Matt Lauer, a “Notable Member” of the Clinton Global Initiative, or George Stephanopoulos, the former press secretary of a Democratic president, or the likes of CNN’s notoriously liberal host Anderson Cooper? Besides rank stupidity, it is hard to think of a reason.

Hobbits Plan TAKEOVER of GOP

Daniel J. Schultz, Breitbart

If the word ever gets out that conservatives can actually take over the Republican Party by becoming precinct committeemen, the current members of the RNC, including the likes of Reince Priebus, are “toast” in the next round of Party officer elections. That’s why they will never breathe a word of this to you.

Trump’s Rise and the Tea Party: Rooted in the Failed Leadership of the GOP

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Readers asked me to expand on my Friday column about the rise of Donald Trump as a contender for the Republican nomination for President. In my view Donald Trump is just the latest in a long line of message carriers who have spoken for grassroots Americans fed-up with the duplicity and betrayals of the Republican establishment and Washington’s ruling class. One of the great ironies of the 2016 Republican presidential campaign may very well be that the establishment Republican political class will finally receive their comeuppance at the hands of Donald Trump, the most unlikely of populist conservatives.

Propaganda Is Directing Us Leftward Into The Abyss - Here's How To Fight Back

As CHQ Chairman Richard A. Viguerie documented in his latest book, TAKEOVER, conservatism has long been infected with the “Sir Galahad Theory of Politics”: “I will win because my heart is pure.” In a must read essay just out on The Federalist, Stella Morabito likewise argues that American conservatives are by and large clueless about propaganda methods and tactics and proposes ideas to confront and battle the tyranny of political correctness and Leftist propaganda wherever you find them.

Exposing the Unseen Hand Wrecking the GOP

Matt Boyle’s reporting on the Walker campaign and Liz Mair was a great service to the conservative movement, not because it exposed the views of one obscure political consultant, but because it flushed out those like Derek Hunter, who unwittingly confirmed exactly how the unseen hand of the anti-conservative parasites of the Washington consulting class are wrecking the Republican Party. 

Why We Think Glenn Beck Is Wrong To Bolt The GOP

We appreciate Glenn Beck’s frustration, but if you want to change what’s going on in America today the battle is inside the Republican Party, not between the GOP and some yet-to-be-created third party. And if you want to win that battle don’t leave the Republican Party, change the Republican Party by running for precinct committeeman, county chairman or for the Republican nomination for office against a big government incumbent before you consider bolting the GOP. 

Bush, Walker & the fight for the soul of the GOP

Elias Isquith, Salon

Liberal Salon offers an interesting take on the battle for the soul of the GOP: Does the GOP exist as a traditional political party, in the sense that it is a collection of different groups that have shared interests and who seek to make them real through public policy? Or is the GOP an ethno-nationalist vehicle designed to save, preserve and, ultimately, redeem the U.S.’s besieged population of “Real Americans”?

Please Lord, No More Bushes For President

A Jeb Bush nomination for president would ensure that the Republican establishment stays in power for at least another decade, and it would also ensure that, no matter if Jeb or the Democrat wins, Big Government will prevail.

Why We Must (Gently) Disagree With Our Friend Mark Levin

Ronald Reagan’s answer to those, including some of his good political supporters, who wanted him to head a new conservative party, was to tell them “they were out of their minds.” As Reagan saw it then (and he was right) the bulk of conservative voters in America are Republicans—and they won’t desert the Republican Party for a third party.

Vichy Republicans

Not only did Boehner and McConnell drop their rifles without firing a shot and run in the face of the enemy, they then joined the tyranny of the enemy in oppressing the patriots who wanted to keep fighting.

Should We Buy Speaker Boehner Some Balls?

Speaker Boehner is not the spineless wimp some commentators make him out to be. Boehner has actually shown plenty of masculine fortitude and has faced down opponents on numerous occasions – the problem is those opponents are always conservatives, not President Obama and the Democrats.

GOP Rep. Hal Rogers – Obama’s Greatest Ally In The Amnesty Battle

House Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers' insistence on an omnibus spending bill plays right into the trap that President Obama and Harry Reid's defeated Senate Democrats have set for Republicans.

Priebus Joins Viguerie: No GOP Cave In On Obama’s Illegal Amnesty

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.

What It Is Going To Take To Defeat Amnesty

Much as conservatives welcome the help RNC Chairman Reince Priebus' comments about amnesty seem to portend, the real muscle to defeat amnesty is going to have to come from the conservative grassroots – the same voters and activists who powered the Republican Party to victory in the 2014 wave.

RIP Representative Phil Crane

Phil Crane passed away on Saturday. What a different world it might be had Crane, instead of George H.W. Bush, been chosen as Ronald Reagan's Vice President. The wake for former Congressman Crane will be Thursday, Nov. 13 from 6 PM to 8 PM at the Loudon Funeral Chapel at 158 Catoctin Circle, SE. in Leesburg, Va.   

The Real Impact of Reagan’s “A Time for Choosing” Speech

“The Speech” established Ronald Reagan’s political brand as the preeminent communicator of conservative ideas, and as CHQ Chairman Richard Viguerie observed in TAKEOVER, in some sense, for the next twenty-five years Reagan never deviated from that script.

Nine Simple Things YOU Can Do TODAY To Nationalize The 2014 Election And Save America

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

Nationalizing the election means that the voters are focused on or thinking about one, two or maybe three main issues that override most all other issues. Another way to think about what it means to nationalize the election is that the voters have in their head a "tune they can whistle."

Conservatives Be of Good Cheer - We're Winning

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

The leadership that Americans need and are looking for doesn’t come from Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Reince Priebus, or any of the Republican establishment. The leadership comes from each of us in the conservative movement, our organizations, our members. We are the driving force to Save America and we are winning!

The Murder of the Middle Class

In his new book The Murder of the Middle Class, Wayne Allyn Root says “It’s time to stop bringing a knife to a gunfight – and bring a rocket launcher. It’s time to call the people who are trying to take the American dream away by their proper names: traitors, thieves, tyrants… " we agree ad think Root's book is essential reading for any politically active conservative.
