border wall

Time is up, let's build the wall

Rep. Jody Hice, Washington Examiner

While no one wants a repeat of January's Schumer Shutdown over immigration, the leverage is in the president’s hands. Remember, the troops are funded, retirees will continue receiving their paychecks, and now the Trump administration has the ability to close the border, alter immigration and asylum services, and wait until enough Senate Democrats actually come to the table and provide him the money needed to build the wall. The time for half measures is gone. The time for anything other than doing what we said is over.

Strasbourg 'Gangster-Jihadist' Makes Nancy and Chuck Seem Clueless

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The objections to building a wall along our Southern border are ludicrous. The five billion dollars, though large to us private citizens, is a trivial number in the federal budget, well worth the money if it saves even one life. It will undoubtedly save a lot more than that. Pelosi and Schumer must know that. Well, maybe not. They certainly don't act that way, on or off TV. They seem like blind political automatons. Desperation for partisan advantage is its own kind of Alzheimer's disease.

Build the wall -- do what we said we’d do

Reps. Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows, Fox News

The House Freedom Caucus will offer two amendments to the year-end spending bill. First, we need to end the catch and release problem. Second, we need $5 billion in unrestricted funding for the border wall. Our members will not vote in support of a bill that doesn’t include these provisions. The president should also use his veto pen to ensure that Congress listens. This battle won’t be easy. Nothing worth doing ever is. But if we have the political will, we can win. We have the American people on our side.

Trump Border Wall Showdown

Betsy McCaughey, The American Spectator

Right now, newly arrived legal immigrants who earn little or nothing are eligible for fully subsidized Obamacare plans, with taxpayers paying the entire bill, even for copays and deductibles. And 6.8 million children of immigrants are enrolled in Medicaid, according to the Urban Institute. Meanwhile, millions of American-born taxpayers who fund this give-away to newcomers are going without insurance themselves, because they can’t afford it. That doesn’t jive with the ideal that a democracy’s first duty is to protect its own citizens.

Donald Trump Won the Chuck-n-Nancy Meeting, and Here’s Why

Matt K. Lewis, Daily Beast

For those conservatives who championed Trump based on his status as a fighter, he doesn’t get points just for standing up for the wall. However, he does get extra points for not cowering in the face of a government shutdown. It has long been axiomatic that Republicans would always get blamed for a shutdown—regardless of the merits. This was partly a function of it being less plausible to believe that Democrats, seen as the party of big government, would want to shut down governmental functions. Trump is the first Republican president I’ve seen who defied this rule.

Far Left Judges Starting A New Civil War

The ongoing insurrection against the duly elected government of the United States isn’t being led by the violent Far Left thugs of Antifa, nor is it being led by power-hungry Democrats on Capitol Hill – it is being led by black-robed revolutionaries working from federal courthouses, especially in the California-centered Ninth Circuit.

Is Chief Justice John Roberts Naïve Or Disingenuous?

Is Chief Justice Roberts’ claim that “We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges” naive or was it a disingenuous defense of the role liberal activist judges have played in undermining the results of the 2016 presidential election?

Run Like Kevin McCarthy Fight Like Jim Jordan

Rep. McCarthy claims to have the right instincts and the right tools; he could be, not just a good leader, but a great leader, if he adopts Jim Jordan’s platform of keeping the GOP’s promises and fighting for conservative principles and President Trump’s conservative – populist agenda at every turn in the legislative process.

Jim Jordan’s Most Important Qualifications For Minority Leader

Jim Jordan proved in founding the Freedom Caucus is that he’s up for the fight, and that is the most important qualification for Minority Leader. Kevin McCarthy and his establishment allies are much more worried about looking good to their friends at the country club than they are fighting for conservative principles, especially when the immediate chances of winning are slim.

Democrats Being Themselves

Conservatives wondering what the future holds for the upcoming 116th Congress should wonder no more and simply take Democrats at their word as to their plans. This means a very full agenda of harassing President Trump, pursuing conspiracy theories, raising taxes and restricting your freedom.

Jim Jordan: House GOP Leaders Blew 2018 Election

Democrats are going to spend the next two years harassing President Trump and offering free stuff to voters. The only thing Republicans have that can beat free is keeping the promises made in the 2016 election. We urge CHQ readers and friends to sign our letter to newly elected Republicans urging them to vote for Jim Jordan for House Minority Leader.

Memo To New GOP House Members: Kevin McCarthy Is Too Dumb And Inept To Be Minority Leader

Rep. Kevin McCarthy is just plain too dumb and incoherent to effectively speak for the Republican minority, let alone lead Republicans to regain the majority. We urge CHQ readers and friends to sign our letter to newly elected Republicans urging them to vote for Jim Jordan for House Minority Leader and call their Republican Representative TODAY to urge him or her to vote for Jim Jordan when the House Republican Conference meets.

Saving the Republican Congress

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

Republicans should be for legal immigration. The “big beautiful wall” Mr. Trump wants to erect should also have big, beautiful gates for immigrants to enter orderly and lawfully. The last thing Democrats want on the eve of the midterm elections is to have to go on TV and explain why they won’t vote for funding the government because they don’t want Mr. Trump to secure America’s borders. And if House and Senate Republicans don’t want to go to the mat on this issue, then Trump voters are probably right in asking: What’s the point of having a Republican Congress anyway?

Jim Jordan For Speaker By The Numbers

As we have often said, no voter in their right mind – and these polls show the conservative voters the GOP needs to win are more attuned than ever – is going to vote to continue Paul Ryan’s legacy of betrayals, lies and failures.

Trump Gets The Message: Conservative Grassroots Demand Speaker Jordan

President Trump just got the message, now it is time for Republican congressional candidates to wake up. If Republican congressional candidates want to win, they need to associate themselves with the one congressional leader who fights every day to pass President Trump’s 2016 MAGA agenda – Rep. Jim Jordan.

A Serious Question For Republican Congressional Candidates

If you’re running for Congress, and you don’t want to be swept up in the Blue Wave that the media keeps telling us is coming, here’s the first and most important thing you can do: Call Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio at (202) 225-2676 and ask him to come campaign for you, and then campaign on his #DoWhatWeSaid agenda.

Jim Jordan Gets It: Build The Wall Or Lose The GOP Majority

The only thing Republicans have that can beat free is what Jim Jordan has been running his campaign for Speaker on – keeping the promises made in the 2016 election. And the wall on the southern border is central to that winning national campaign.

It’s On! Jim Jordan Announces For Speaker Of The House

America didn't elect Donald Trump in 2016 to keep Washington the same, the President is delivering, but Congress is not – and that is what is imperiling the Republican majority in the midterm election. Congress still has time to correct its course, and electing Jim Jordan as Speaker is the GOP's last best hope to save itself from itself.
