Endorsement: Carol Swain For Mayor Of Nashville

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
After the recent scandals plaguing Nashville City Hall only an outsider with knowledge and courage can do what needs to be done to clean up Nashville city government, and the only person I see with those qualifications in the upcoming May 24 special election is former Vanderbilt University professor Dr. Carol Swain.

First Investigate, then Dismantle, the FBI

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The FBI no longer looks out for the American citizen. It looks out for itself or the leaders it chooses. It deserves to be dismantled and a new FBI built from the ground up. An entirely new system must be devised. As perspicacious as the Senate and House committees have been, they are not enough. Congresspeople alone cannot oversee this, nor should they have to.

End the 9/11 Syndrome at the FBI

John Fund, National Review

It’s time for those responsible for failures at the FBI to be fired. When only small fry are let go, the complacency among upper management remains and problems are swept under the rug. Only with new blood and a fresh approach can systemic problems within a bureaucracy be addressed.

What Do We Do About the FBI?

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

We need a through investigation via a full-on commission of the FBI and the DOJ themselves and, unfortunately, the intelligence agencies as well that could -- and most likely would -- take years. So many issues are at play here it's mind-boggling.  How do we deal with the dishonesty of our officials and bureaucrats when those same people are the keepers of our secrets and the enforcers of our laws (both of which are related)?  When is transparency necessary?  When is secrecy justified? Who will watch the watchers? Are the congressional oversight committees enough?  Do they have sufficient power?

Obama produced sinister miniseries for Democrats

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Obama officials pressured federal investigators to back off investigations into huge money-laundering, weapons and drug trafficking operations by the terrorist group Hezbollah. It was all in the name of placating Iran — Hezbollah’s patron nation — so that the Obama administration could ink a ridiculously lopsided deal on Iran’s nuclear program. A deal that scored Iran hundreds of millions in cash and billions more in sanctions relief.

The Rules Don’t Apply To Democrat Bigwigs Like Rep. John Conyers

“Your story won’t do shit to him,” said a former staffer for Democratic Rep. John Conyers. “He’s untouchable.” Based on the Bill Clinton and Al Franken precedents it looks like the former staffer is right – at least if you are a powerful Democrat.

The 'Trump dossier,' like so much else, is due to the corruption of the Clintons

Editors, Washington Examiner

The truth about the dossier is a reminder of what was and what was not at stake in last year's presidential contest. Ever since Trump's election, the moral posturing by some of America's sleaziest liars has become nearly unbearable. If you wonder why voters chose not to elect Clinton, even though it meant something as extraordinary as choosing Trump, you need look no further.

The Clintons Corrupt Everything They Touch

Until Democrats rid themselves of the Clintons, and stop covering for them, the Democratic Party cannot be considered a legitimate political party; it is merely one cog in a vast conspiracy to justify and cover up the Clintons' crimes.

Ted Cruz Makes Epic Put Down Of Bernie Sanders And The Democrat Tax Collectors

Our advice to Mitch McConnell and the GOP leadership – not that they are likely to accept it – is that they should concentrate on rounding up votes for the Trump tax plan and leave the talking to Ted Cruz.

Conservative Outsider Senate Candidates Breaking Fundraising Records

While fundraising support for the Republican establishment is drying-up due to the failure of Capitol Hill’s Republican leaders to produce on their campaign promises, two of the most promising Republican outsiders, Indiana’s Mike Braun and Wisconsin’s Leah Vukmir, are reporting record-breaking support.

Fed Up Donors Tell GOP Senate Leaders Pass Bills Or Resign

“I think major donors are tired of writing checks to a do-nothing Congress,” Roy Bailey, an influential, Dallas-based GOP donor told POLITICO, and he's not the only one who has closed his wallet to the Republican establishment.

Swampland’s Ten Commandments

Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness

When conservatives in Washington sin, it is valuable window into their dark souls; when liberals do the same, it is a minor and regrettable lapse, attributable to the toll taken on them for heroically advancing the morally superior cause. An obdurate Beltway conservative is like one who fights in Fallujah without Kevlar; a progressive wars from an Abrams tank. That is why there are few of the former, and lots of the latter.

The End Of Obama’s Corrupt Global Warming Treaty

Obama and his liberal allies from Hollywood to Silicon Valley to Wall Street claimed that the goal of the Paris climate treaty was to reduce so-called greenhouse gasses. However, its effect was to produce a massive wealth transfer from American workers to foreigners and wealthy investors.

House GOP Establishment Didn’t Get The Message Of John Mica’s Defeat

Special interest earmarks are nothing less than a legal bribe to get Members of Congress to vote for bad policy and more spending. The defeat of John Mica conclusively rebuts the argument that they are good politics.

Hillary’s Champagne Socialism

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The champagne socialism of Hillary — inveighing against an economy of “exclusion” while elbowing her way to ill-gotten wealth — is beyond farce. She is the Alinskyite radical who complains about rising college tuition fees while taking money away from students by charging their schools $225,000 for speeches. That was too much even for Colin Powell, who still wants to “send her a bill” for his lost gigs at schools she overcharged.

A Presidency from Hell?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

White House scandals, as Nixon said in Watergate, are almost always rooted in mendacity—not the misdeed, but the cover-up, the lies, the perjury, the obstruction of justice that follow. And here Hillary Clinton seems to have an almost insoluble problem. This election is not over. But if Hillary Clinton wins, a truly hellish presidency could await her, and us.

WikiLeaks Shines Light on Forked-Tongue Democrats

Daniel J. Flynn, The American Spectator

WikiLeaks revealed that the Democratic Party operatives that we watch as animatrons on TV become real people once they think no one watches. They want to suppress the leaked emails why, exactly? They’re not amoral, imprudent pod people, after all. They just play them on TV.

Grifters-in-Chief

Kimberley Strassel, Wall Street Journal

The Clintons do not draw any lines between their “charitable” work, their political activity, their government jobs or (and most important) their personal enrichment. Every other American is expected to keep these pursuits separate, as required by tax law, anticorruption law and campaign-finance law. For the Clintons, it is all one and the same—the rules be damned.

Think Tank Official May Have Violated IRS Rules By Coordinating Anti-Trump Event With Clinton Campaign

Chuck Ross, Daily Caller

A top official at the Atlantic Council violated the think tank’s “ethos and policies” by not disclosing email exchanges with the Hillary Clinton campaign in which he offered himself up as a campaign surrogate and also proposed hosting an event that would be critical of Donald Trump.

Dem Pollster: Clinton ‘May Be Immune To Pay To Play’

Peter Hasson, Daily Caller

Democratic pollster and former Bill Clinton adviser Stanley Greenberg thinks Hillary Clinton may be immune to pay-to-play charges, according to a February 2016 email he sent to Clinton campaign manager John Podesta.
