Johnny DeStefano’s job as Director of White House Personnel isn’t to hire outsiders loyal to Trump and it isn't to check the SAT scores of potential hires to make sure the top applicants get the jobs – it is to funnel Capitol Hill staffers loyal to the congressional Republican establishment into key jobs in the executive branch.
We urge CHQ readers to call Congress (the Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to tell your Senators and Representative to oppose funding Obama’s plan to import more jihad to America through the “refugee” resettlement program.
"What's happening at the grassroots, what's driving a lot of this support for Trump … is the silence of Republican leaders," Viguerie said Monday on "Newsmax Prime." "They just are intimidated by the national media. And when [President Barack] Obama or the Democrats shred the Constitution, they're silent."
Conservative businessman Paul Nehlen has confirmed he will challenge Paul Ryan for the Wisconsin District 1 seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.
What the Republican establishment fears more than anything, including a Donald Trump nomination, is that when Ted Cruz wins he brings more than a new Republican administration to power – he brings us – the limited government constitutional conservative movement to power.
Speaker Ryan is completely tone deaf to what is driving the outsider candidacies of Ted Cruz and Donald Trump. They are not winning the Republican Primaries by campaigning against Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders – they are winning by campaigning against Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Reince Priebus and the rest of the feckless, principle-free Capitol Hill Republican leaders. Ryan’s plan for this year’s budget will only fuel their candidacies.
Conservatives responding to FedUp PAC’s poll see the failure to protect the Benghazi compound as a disqualifying event for Clinton, with 96% saying it shows her to be unfit to serve as commander in chief. But they are equally critical of Capitol Hill Republican leaders, with 96% are concerned, and 90% of those are “very concerned”, that eyewitness testimony regarding the “stand down” order was not included in the report of the House committee investigating the attack.
When the details and the text of Obama’s gun grab become public don’t blame Obama – blame Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and the spineless Capitol Hill Republicans who elected them, passed the Omnibus, and empowered Obama to spend his last year in office attacking constitutional liberty, stripping you of your rights and fundamentally changing America. Click the link to sign our open letter to Capitol Hill Republicans, tell Ryan and McConnell "If you won't stand with us to defend our Second Amendment rights, why should we stand with you on Election Day?"
The attitude that everything is negotiable is at its core is why conservatives have come to despise the current establishment Republican leadership on Capitol Hill and celebrate Senator Cruz as the leader of principled constitutional conservatives in Congress. Mr. Trump remains an effective message carrier for grassroots frustration with Washington, but he has yet to tell conservatives what he would actually do if elected and answer the most important question of the campaign; “change to what?”
As the clock ticks down to the final vote a group of conservative House members, led by CHQ endorsed Representative Ken Buck of Colorado, have stepped forward to demand that the House “leadership” take a comprehensive approach to defunding Obama’s agenda by using its Article I constitutional power to serve as the basis for funding priorities in appropriations bills. Please sign our open letter to Congress demanding that Republicans defund Obama's dangerous and unconstitutional agenda.
As Senator Jeff Sessions pointed out unless GOP leaders in Congress—the party controls both chambers, the House and the Senate—do something to pull back on Obama’s “blank checks” for potentially-ISIS-connected Syrian refugees and other potential terrorists, there’s no way to stop Obama from bringing them in. Please join us by signing our open letter to House and Senate Republican leaders demanding they use their "overwhelming power" to stop Obama’s dangerous policies and unconstitutional actions.
A one sentence repeal of Obamacare through the budget reconciliation bill should be an easy call for Republicans. They have the majority, they can ignore the recommendation of the Senate Parliamentarian if it goes against them, let the Senate vote on a favorable interpretation of the rules and forge forward – but that requires a credible argument and a spine, both of which are in short supply among establishment Republican “leaders” in Congress.
Along with Paul Ryan’s personal qualities and capabilities comes an unfortunate willingness to destroy the quality of life for millions of American families by advancing the unlimited immigration policies advocated by the establishment Republican Party’s corporate paymasters.
The Republican establishment “leaders” who run Capitol Hill are notorious for not being able to walk and chew gum at the same time and appear to be genetically unable to deal with more than one major issue at a time. Please tell us which of these important issues Congress should deal with first; defunding Planned Parenthood, defeating the Obama – Corker Iran nuclear weapons deal, the Meadows resolution to oust Speaker Boehner or the need to pass appropriations to fund the federal government for the fiscal year starting October 1?
The current and immediate past chairmen of the House Homeland Security Comm. have publicly backed Obama’s airstrikes against ISIS in Syria, despite the fact that the president didn't seek congressional approval for them.
Democrats harness the power of their base to advance the cause of their ideology and party platform. Republican leaders, on the other hand, are at war with their party’s platform.
The GOP needs a leader brave enough to silence the Nervous Nellies who think the '95 shutdown was bad (R's gained seats).
Newsmax's list of influential GOP women reflects a modest increase in female conservatives' rise to power.
In the first of a four part series on the surveillance state writer Ben Hart outlines 48 facts about how the U.S. government now tracks, monitors, records, and stores most of your activities and communications. Arguing that in this surveillance state you have no privacy anymore Hart claims this has led to a society where you must be very careful what you say, even what to think . . . because whatever you say, write, or even think can (and probably will) be used against you.
