Ken Cuccinelli For Secretary Of Homeland Security

Our preferred replacement for acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin McAleenan is acting Director of the Citizenship and Immigration Services Ken Cuccinelli. Cuccinelli has three things that McAleenan lacked – a commitment to the Trump border security agenda, a willingness to fight Democrats and the Republican establishment to make the President’s agenda a reality, and the effective TV presence necessary to sell it to the American people.

103 Conservative Leaders Sign Letter Backing Cuccinelli for Secretary of Homeland Security

The conservative leaders participating in the Conservative Action Project have just released a memo in support of Ken Cuccinelli for Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security saying 'Cuccinelli is a champion of conservative policies, and a man of unimpeachable character. We have no doubt that he will execute the president’s agenda with the integrity, commitment, and excellence that we have known him to bring to every other position. He has our strongest support.'

The Death of American Citizenship

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Does voting matter that much anymore? We are unwinding at both ends. Tribalism, the erosion of the middle class, and de facto open borders are turning Americans into mere residents of a particular North American region between Mexico and Canada. Yet even more dangerously, thanks to the fiats of unelected bureaucrats and officials, along with the social-media lynch mobs who boycott, harass, and shame us, our constitutional rights are now increasingly optional. They mostly hinge on whether we are judged worthy by an unelected, politically correct, and morally righteous elite. In theory, American citizenship remains the same; in reality, it is disappearing fast.

GOP List Of Shame On Budget Vote

From our perspective the spending deal was no victory, but another “fear The Turtle” moment in which the not-so-subtle big spending hand of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell manipulated the White House and the House Republican Leadership into once again abandoning any pretense of fiscal restraint.

Supreme Court ruling allowing Pentagon funding for border wall strengthens national security

Dan Stein, Fox News

Friday’s ruling is not so much a victory for the president as it is for the American people, who increasingly have come to understand that our lawless borders pose a threat to the security of the nation. Much more needs to be done, but the Supreme Court’s green light to wall construction will be a needed boost to efforts to restore order along the border where manpower and resources are being stretched dangerously thin. The American people are not all that concerned about which pot of money is tapped to secure our border with Mexico. They just want the various departments to work in concert to get the job done, keep us safe and enforce our laws.

Border Wall Big Win, But Not Fundamental

President Trump and conservatives won a big victory in the Supreme Court’s Wall ruling and in the otherwise disastrous spending bill, but we must be prepared to renew the immigration fight when Congress returns in September and takes-up the next round of spending bills.

What Do You Call A One-Legged Stool?

Principles matter in elections, and with all four legs of the 2016 big table coalition working full throttle on his behalf Donald Trump is a shoo-in for reelection, but a stool or table supported only by the one leg of Donald Trump’s outsized personality is likely to crash on Election Day.

Conservatives Oppose Trillion Dollar Spending Boondoggle

The Trump administration projected in March that this year’s deficit will hit $1.1 trillion, up from last year’s deficit of $779 billion – a figure comparable to the Obama-era deficit. After months of urging congressional and administration negotiators to prioritize reductions in spending, the Conservative Action Project has come out in opposition to this irresponsible bipartisan budget deal.

Trump Sucked Into McConnell Spending Betrayal

The voters who want fiscal responsibility who powered the Tea Party Wave and the Trump Movement haven’t gone away. While they may grudgingly support President Trump in 2020 against a Far-Left progressive Democrat, congressional Republicans who think they can spend their way to reelection will face the wrath of those voters.

Tucker Carlson Is Right, But Who Is Responsible For This Disaster?

Tucker Carlson was right, “Ilhan Omar is living proof that the way we practice immigration has become dangerous to this country.” And if Tucker is right, it is fair to ask who is responsible for this civilization-level disaster? We hold former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, and former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama responsible for introducing this poison into our society.

Build the Wall to Save Central America

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

What makes dysfunctional countries functional? Getting their act together. Facing reality. Electing decent officials. Doing something for their own country as citizens, starting businesses, farming, construction, etc. In other words, hard work. That's not easy. But all those families and faux families making their way to our Southern border and then crossing over with equally faux claims of asylum only exacerbate things for their countries of origin. They also drain those countries of good hard-working people. Some, anyway. The best thing that can happen for Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras is for us to build a wall, a real one, that covers the entire Southern border (with gateways, obviously).

Our Interview With True Conservative Garland Tucker

As North Carolina’s incumbent Senator – and Mitch McConnell clone – Thom Tillis skipped important votes in the Senate to attend fundraisers, we caught his principled limited government constitutional conservative Republican primary opponent Garland Tucker for a short telephone interview.

The Cost Of Amnesty For Illegal Aliens

We urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Representative (the toll-free Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044), tell your Representative to vote NO on H.R. 2820 and H.R. 2821. Tell your Representative giving amnesty to illegal aliens and adding obligations of $35.1 billion to the deficit, while returning only $3 billion in new revenue is a bad deal for America.

Democrats Tee-Up Bills To Grant Amnesty To Drug Smugglers, Prostitutes And Gang Members

We urge CHQ readers to call your Representative (the toll-free Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044), to say you oppose amnesty for illegal aliens, and demand that they vote NO on H.R. 2820 and H.R. 2821, the Democrats’ latest proposal to grant amnesty to gang members, prostitutes and other aliens no rational government would admit to our country.

Congressman Chip Roy Stands Tall Demands Debate Of $19 Billion Disaster Bill

One principled limited government constitutional conservative – Representative Chip Roy of Texas – was willing to stand tall and say NO to passing, without debate, a disaster aid bill that no one had read, that added $19 billion to the deficit and that did not address some of the real disasters, such as the illegal alien invasion on our southern border.

Personnel Is Policy: Conservative Star Ken Cuccinelli To Join Trump Team

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Rumor has it that Ken Cuccinelli will “coordinate the administration’s immigration policies.” Whether that will be from the White House or from the Department of Homeland Security has yet to be revealed. But wherever Ken Cuccinelli’s office is located physically, Ken will be a vital addition to the Trump team.

I’m A Legitimate Asylum-Seeker, And I Support Trump’s Border Wall

Mahir Ahmed, The Federalist

Unfortunately, it took me, a legal alien, being personally affected by illegal immigration to look at the data and realize that there is indeed a crisis at the southern border. The crisis is affecting both the American people and those who take the right, legal steps, and wait their turn to come to the United States. Since I filed my case, about 460,000 illegal crossings took place. A wall can significantly lower, if not eliminate, illegal crossings, especially when coupled with recommended, location-specific operational tactics. Most importantly, a wall would save taxpayers money in the long run.

Trump’s Intersectional Weekend

While we don’t buy the idea that all of society is controlled by oppressive intersectional institutions, the Trump team has, from the beginning of his unlikely rise to the Oval Office, recognized that the key elements of a winning political coalition on the Right do intersect, and their nexus is constitutional liberty, especially as protected by the First and Second Amendments.

New Gallup Poll: Government And Immigration Top Voter Concerns

Immigration is the top concern of Republicans. While this highlights the difficulty of finding a bipartisan solution to the issue, it also suggests immigration will be an important election issue for Republicans, and one the president and GOP should use to drive turnout and support for Trump in 2020.

We Need Supply Side Warrior Steve Moore On The Fed Board

We strongly support Stephen Moore for the Fed Board and urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Senators today (the toll-free Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to urge them to vote to confirm Steve Moore when his nomination to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors comes before the Senate.
