Could British Incompetence Lead America To War With Iran?

The Iranians have now made a point of showing the British and the world that they have the same capabilities as the old imperial power, and that they were not afraid to use them. Based on their own diminished capabilities, the British have few good alternatives short of outright capitulation, meaning any military response to the hijacking of their ship would, perforce, involve the United States.

Prospects Of War With Iran Heating Up… Again

Americans might justifiably ask what does the hijacking of a Panamanian-flagged vessel operating out of the UAE and the British seizure of an Iranian vessel operating in violation of international sanctions have to do with us? The answer is that President Trump has approved an operation in which U.S. warships act as sentinels at the entrance to the Persian Gulf.

Big Business Goes Anti-Family

There was a time when businesses, especially America’s major corporate employers, encouraged family life. Fast forward to 2019 and a new era of what we call corporate fascism, where, as Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) said in recent speech, politically correct CEOs apparently think babies are "bad for business.”

Conservatives Divided On Iran Retaliation

With principled conservatives, such as Senator Tom Cotton and Rep. Matt Gaetz, divided over what the proper response to Iranian aggression in the Gulf of Oman and Strait of Hormuz should be – or even if any response is required – we’d like to hear what CHQ readers and friends have to say. Please use the comments section in this article to tell us what you think.

John McCain, RIP: Washington’s War Party Loses its Leader

For the late Senator John McCain, war was a first resort, the obvious answer to most any international problem, whatever the specifics. If only Washington would impose its will abroad, Pax America would emerge.

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.
