The politics behind separation anxiety

Cal Thomas, Washington Times

Democrats, whose policies have contributed to the separation of parents from children want us to believe they are overwhelmed with empathy at the sight of crying kids along our southern border. With so many good signs that the country is on the right track and with Mr. Trump’s approval rating at 45 percent, the highest it has been since the beginning of his term, Democrats and the major media have no other issue except the immigration issue, and it may be the Democrats’ last gasp — and last hope — before the November election.

The immigration fight is just beginning, and the media is going to lose

Eddie Scarry, Washington Examiner

Regarding Trump's executive order, what do you think will happen under the administration once the families are released and the parents are caught later because they didn’t show up for their court date, as happens, by some estimates, in about 40 percent of immigration-related court orders? What happens when detention facilities are stuffed beyond capacity because the families now can’t be split? The “crisis” was never the illegal immigrant separations. It was the illegal immigrants.

Conservatives in the Wilderness: Restless, but Lacking Leadership

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Conservatives in 1955 were restless, anxious to be heard, and had plenty of motivating issues.  But they lacked political and intellectual leadership.  That would soon come, with an outspoken Senator from Arizona and an articulate young author.  The stage was set in the 1950s for the birth of a new conservative movement, as we see in this excerpt from America’s Right Turn: How Conservatives Used New and Alternative Media to Take Power.

Conservatives in the Wilderness: American Politics in 1955

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
In 1955, liberalism reigned supreme over the politics of the United States.  If there is one lesson to be learned, however, it is:  Never despair, and never give up.  A new day was coming, as we see in this excerpt from America’s Right Turn: How Conservatives Used New and Alternative Media to Take Power.

Money in Politics: Everyone Complains About It, but Every Political Movement Needs It

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Everyone complains about the role of money in politics, but nobody’s figured out how to run a political movement or party without money.  Get it from lobbyists?  Special interests?  Billionaires?  In this excerpt from Chapter 3 of America's Right Turn by Richard A. Viguerie and David Franke we explain how conservatives in the 1960s figured out a better way.

More Factors that Created a Grassroots Conservative Movement

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
In this excerpt from Chapter 3, “The Recipe for Creating a New Mass Movement,” of America’s Right Turn: How Conservatives Used New and Alternative Media to Take Power, by Richard A. Viguerie and David Franke we consider “Self-identification as a movement” and Communication networks, sometimes including a secret weapon.

Brent Bozell: The Entitled 'Comedy' Elites

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

The vile entertainers stand up for one another. They are the true elites, engorged with self-absorption and disdainful of anyone who misses the point that they are the witty conscience of the country. Standards? They have none. They are above them. Thus, they viciously carve up conservatives in a way they would never dream of talking about their liberal heroes. (Rewind to Samantha Bee hugging Hillary Clinton and crying out, "It should have been you!")

Viguerie and David Franke, we ask:  How can a grassroots political movement emerge and succeed in our media-dominated world?

Defeating The Top Five Obnoxious Liberal Argument Cheats

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Liberals don’t argue in good faith because they can’t, and Normal people who don’t argue every day as part of their job often don’t see the argument grifts they are being side-swiped by. Normals are direct and honest folks, and often (though much less frequently than they used to since Normals began to get militant) they labor under the illusion that debates with liberals involve honest exchanges of facts and evidence that can lead people to change their minds. No. Liberal “argument’ is a bludgeon designed to beat you into submission with distraction and deception.

What Conservatives Can Learn From the West’s First Media Revolution

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Consider how this historic lesson repeated itself in the conservative media revolution of the 1960s—how conservatives were the first to use the new and alternative media, how liberals later caught up, but how the conservatives could no longer be eradicated or sidelined as they had been before.  Then ask yourself:  What can we do to make certain we are the first to dominate any new media technologies?

NBC's Chuck Todd Sneers at Trump's 'Playbook'

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Over Memorial Day weekend, NBC's Chuck Todd opened his show "Meet the Press" by angrily lecturing his viewers about a so-called Trump "tactical playbook" on how to spin the Robert Mueller probe and the FBI informant in his presidential campaign. The liberal media have no right to lecture about "distractions" and "branding" and treating facts as relative. These are all well-worn moves in their own "tactical playbook."

In Defense of ABC and the NFL

Ben Shapiro, National Review

Free speech can be threatened in practice by a culture of mob rule — attempts to destroy someone’s life thanks to their viewpoint rather than their behavior. But sometimes speech is inherently related to the job or product at issue. Corporations have every right to protect their bottom line under such circumstances, and the public has every right to shy away from such products and services.

Media Monopolies Declare War on Conservatives

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
We succeeded before despite the old liberal monopolists.  We can repeat that success against the new “progressive” monopolists.  My co-author David Franke and I expalin how in the upcoming serialization of our book America's Right Turn.

Real Conservatives Refuse To Kneel Before Their Liberal Overlords

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Here’s how we roll. When the enemy deploys its power against us, whether it’s some football jerk dissing us via Old Glory or some tech titan deciding to not allow us access to social media, we will fight back using whatever power we have. We’ll bankrupt the NFL before we just sit there watching them flip us off. And we’ll leverage our political power to regulate the Twittfacegrams into submission if they keep trying to exclude us from participation in our own culture. Laugh at them and their fussy complaints about how you fail to conform your life to their labels. Fight back.

Can We Hope To Keep Our Republic When One Of The Parties Supports Tyranny?

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

We cannot have a functioning republic where about half of the population actively supports the trappings of tyranny. We can’t. No nation, especially one full of citizens who zealously guard their freedom, can tolerate a double standard for political behavior. It won’t be double for long. The New Rules, should they become ingrained in our systems, will inevitably go both ways. They are going to hate the New Rules.

So They Were Spying On Trump's Campaign

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Doesn't pushing the idea that Trump colluded with the Russians require "a conspiratorial mind"? Is it fair to speculate endlessly on CNN and MSNBC about how special counsel Robert Mueller might prove collusion, when he hasn't done so after a year of trying? The media don't have to prove their Trump conspiracy theory to damage Trump's political standing. It can keep that black cloud of speculation hanging over his head on every front page and every newscast.

Defending spies in the Trump campaign is the height of liberal hypocrisy

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

The time is up for professional gatekeepers like Comey and Rosenstein to control what the public knows. They have done nothing but add to distrust of the FBI and that will not change if their ilk makes the final decisions. By insisting that the documents go online, Trump would be letting taxpayers see for themselves what the government was up to, and what it was hiding. And to connect the dots between the various agencies involved.

The mainstream media — the lap dogs of the deep state and propaganda arm of the left

Ned Ryun, The Hill

Here’s hoping the left and the mainstream media, and excuse the redundancy, continue to defend violent gangs and terrorists, attempt image makeovers of brutal regimes like Iran and North Korea, and pretend that the overwhelming majority of Americans don’t understand that an informant is a spy. Many of us will enjoy watching that soul-sucking moment the night of Nov. 3rd, 2020 when they realize that instead of taking their Moby Dick down, they actually helped him win. Again.

Liberal Lies And Slanders Are A Slippery Slope To Trouble

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Being unable to convince the normals that they have nothing to lose but their chains, our liberal pals have simply given up on the idea of convincing anyone of anything at all. Instead, they are opting for the hitting-over-the-head solution, except their clubs are not wooden. Their clubs are institutional and cultural. They seek to eliminate our ability to speak – that’s the de-platforming part of their scheme. They want to eliminate any venues for dissenting argument.
