How To Make Nancy Pelosi Speaker Of The House

President Trump must resist the urge to do a deal and back DACA legislation decoupled from the rest of the conservative immigration reform agenda unless he wants to make Nancy Pelosi Speaker of the House and mire the remainder of his presidency in Democrat-led investigations and impeachment hearings.

Centerism = Total Catastrophe

Update: President Trump endorses House Goodlatte bill, dismisses Senate remaining immigration proposals.  Much as the establishment media and open borders Republicans on Capitol Hill would like to present the Schumer-Rounds-Collins bill as a “centerist” proposal, there’s nothing “centerist” about granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens and who knows how many thousands of illegal bordered crossers who would arrive between now and June 30, 2018.

On Immigration The “Do Nothing Senate” Should Do Nothing

On immigration the Senate should do what it does best; nothing. If Congress does nothing the law stays as it is, illegal aliens get arrested and deported, the quality of life of American workers and their families is protected, and America protects itself from a future of One Party rule. Now, that’s what we call win – win.

Trump Amnesty Disaster

While the White House proposal technically ends chain migration and the lottery, it uses ALL those visas to bring in the 4 million people on the visa waiting list.  That means current immigration levels will continue for the next 10-15 years or more AND amnesty will be granted to a minimum of 1.8 million illegals.  These are permanent changes to America's electorate. If this passes the Trump proposal will make Republicans a permanent minority party and limited government constitutional conservatism a soon-to-be extinct philosophy of government.

Trump Snatching Defeat From The Jaws Of Victory On Immigration

The current level of immigration, even without amnesty, will add nearly 15 million new Left-leaning voters to our polity. Add to that amnesty for millions of mostly Mexican and Central American DACA beneficiaries and Trump will make Republicans a permanent minority party and limited government constitutional conservatism a soon-to-be extinct philosophy of government.

Conservatives Want Trump to Be Trump

More than 54% of conservatives responding to the FedUp PAC poll take the position that Trump “should continue to say the same thing in the same way about merit-based immigration.” Another 39% agree with Trump about the necessity of moving to merit-based immigration but say that he “should be more careful about the language he uses.”

Why Do We Continue To Let These Vipers Into America?

The latest terrorist attack in New York demonstrates the urgency of the need to rein-in immigration by Muslims hostile to constitutional liberty and the values of the Western Enlightenment enshrined in our Constitution. The toll-free number is 1-866-220-0044 call today.

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.

On Iran Trump’s Advisors Offer Dumb And Dumber Options

The inevitable result of continuing to falsely certify that Iran is in compliance with the nuclear weapons deal, and allowing their continued nuclear weapons and missile development cooperation, is an anti-American world dominated by two nuclear-armed rogue states; North Korea and Iran.

Outsider Erik Prince Looking At Challenging Establishment Senator John Barrasso

While Erik Prince’s views on the conservative agenda need to be explored further before we can make any kind of endorsement, we do know a lot of things we don’t like about Senator John Barrasso, and first among them is his crony relationship with Mitch McConnell.

Will Trump Cave to McMaster, Tillerson and Mattis on Obamabomb Deal?

Our take is that the “decertify, but stay in strategy” is a scam engineered by National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster and his Obama holdovers on the National Security Council staff to rope-a-dope Trump into leaving the Obamabomb agreement in place until a President who shares the Obama worldview can be elected and inaugurated.

Even UN Says Iran Not Complying With Obama Nuclear Weapons Deal

President Trump must not bow to pressure to falsely certify that Iran is in compliance with the Obama nuclear weapons deal. It is time to withdraw from the Obamabomb deal completely and prepare every available option to stop Iran’s nuclear weapons program.

Conservative National Security Experts Urge President Trump to Withdraw From Obama's Nuclear Deal With Iran

Forty-five conservative national security experts, including CHQ Editor George Rasley, many of whom held senior positions in the nuclear weapons, arms control, nonproliferation and intelligence fields, sent a letter to President Trump endorsing a comprehensive plan, drafted by former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton, to withdraw the United States from the Obama - Iran nuclear weapons deal.

President Trump’s UN Speech vs. Action On Iran And North Korea

It can never be forgotten that there is a direct nexus between the North Korean nuclear weapons and missile programs and the Iranian nuclear weapons and missile programs. If President Trump doesn't back up his speech with action and falsely certifies Iran is in compliance with Obama's nuclear weapons deal it will embolden both North Korea and Iran.

Hillary Clinton’s NSC Running Trump’s Iran Policy

National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster's guidance to President Trump that he should falsely certify that Iran is in compliance with the Obama nuclear deal amounts to looking the other way on Iran’s violations and is little different than what Hillary Clinton would have done if she had won the 2016 election.
