Florida GOP Candidates Surging: Keep The Pedal To The Metal

Florida GOP candidates Ron DeSantis and Rick Scott have finally found their voices and nationalized their elections, and the Florida GOP is doing a great job getting absentee ballots returned ahead of the November 6 election, but to win they must keep the pedal to the metal.

Violent Democrats Driving Voters To GOP

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
The Democrats and their leftist mobs are in panic mode.  The few who have a smidgeon of lucidity left realize that their screaming antics during the Kavanaugh hearings and throughout the campaign are backfiring on them. That's why they don't want conservatives to make this a key theme in the final weeks of the election.

Trump's North American trade triumph

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

Despite the plan's virtues, Democrats in Congress are threatening to vote as a bloc to prevent passage of the trade pact. These are the same people who just a few months ago were complaining that Mr. Trump’s “reckless and dangerous” trade policies were harming the economy and alienating our allies. Now he has a deal that helps the economy and unifies our neighbors — and they are against it. They have exposed themselves as free trade hypocrites.

My Latest Memo On The 2018 Election

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Democrats, including many of the Party’s national leaders, have now handed the GOP the opportunity to nationalize the election on the mob violence, incivility, radical Leftism and downright craziness that was on national TV during and after the Kavanaugh confirmation.

Why Canada’s Trudeau HAD to Sign a Trade Deal with the U.S.

John Fund, National Review

Although all sides gave ground, it was the Canadians who gave up the most and blinked first. Trudeau simply couldn’t afford the domestic political heat he’d face if he proved unable to cut a trade deal with Canada’s largest trading partner. Trudeau’s approval rating in the latest National Campaign Research Poll is down to 39 percent. His Liberal party trails the opposition Conservative party, led by Andrew Scheer, by 39 percent to 37 percent, with the next election due to be held no later than October 2019.

OK, Now That Kavanaugh Has Been Confirmed…

Conservatives have a two-step process to achieve a conservative Congress: First, keep the House and expand our numbers in the Senate. Second, put pressure on the Republican House majority to elect Jim Jordan Speaker to keep their promises on the Trump agenda going into 2020.

A victory on trade

Cal Thomas, Washington Times

Past presidents of both parties have mostly bowed to globalists and other nations that have put the interests of their countries first. Mr. Trump, starting with his campaign, promised to put American interests first, not to the detriment of other countries — they also are benefitting — but to even out unfair deals that have harmed America and Americans. The best response to a policy that isn’t working, one based on flawed ideology, is to embrace a policy that works. The USMCA has the potential to do great things for the United States. There doesn’t seem to be a credible argument in opposition.

GOP Must Nationalize The Election On Kavanaugh Confirmation

The Kavanaugh confirmation battle is motivating conservative voters in North Dakota, West Virginia, Missouri and other states. Republican candidates who play small ball – campaigning on local issues – are likely to lose this November, because the Kavanaugh confirmation is the one big issue that seems to be moving voters right now.

The Trump Doctrine

President Trump’s remarks at the UN were noteworthy, not so much for their radical departure from the interventionist policies of the two Bush presidents, and their rejection of the weakness and globalism of Obama, but for their return to the principles of George Washington.

I Call BS On Tip O’Neill's Claim 'All Politics Is Local'

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
What Tip O’Neill really meant was that focusing on local issues is what wins elections for Democrats, because they can’t campaign on their state and national agendas of raising taxes, opening the borders, enabling sanctuary cities, giving benefits to illegal aliens, cutting national defense and nationalizing health care and anything else they can get their hands on.

Trump Kills NAFTA

Nothing explains Hillary Clinton’s 2016 loss better than Monday’s announcement that Trump has kept his word to blue-collar voters in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin and other manufacturing states by officially dissolving NAFTA.

Forget The GOP: It’s Up To Conservatives To Nationalize The 2018 Midterm Election

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
As I see it, 2018 will likely be another Republican wipeout, like 2006, unless we conservatives nationalize the election by getting voters refocused on big conservative issues; building the wall, limiting immigration, religious liberty, rebuilding our national defense, reducing job-killing regulations, and getting tough on crime and illegal border crossing.

It’s Time For President Trump To Go Full Andrew Jackson On Overreaching Judges

Whether President Jackson defied the Supreme Court has been hotly debated ever since Worcester v. Georgia but the point is that unlike subsequent presidents and congresses, Jackson was prepared to challenge usurping federal judges and use all the power and discretion the Constitution grants the executive to pursue his policy goals.

Understanding Trump’s Goals And Strategy On Trade

Trump’s plan to seek freer, fairer, and more reciprocal trade when the United States is in a strong, and growing stronger, economic position is in the best interest of America’s taxpayers, producers, consumers and national security. Trump is playing a long game that in the end will benefit all American interests.

Tariffs Made America Great

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

As our Revolution was about political independence, the first words and acts of our constitutional republic were about ensuring America’s economic independence. Economic patriotism put America first, and made America first. Of GOP free traders, the steel magnate Joseph Wharton, whose name graces the college Trump attended, said it well: “Republicans who are shaky on protection are shaky all over.”

Trump's Deal with the EU Is Democrat Nightmare

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Do you want the Trump economy or do you want a return to the Obama economy?  It's as simple as that.  Trump continues to negotiate great agreements for America, at home and abroad. The "Art of the Deal" may be a cliché by now, but it appears to work.  And when something's working for once, why change it  -- especially to something that already failed?(Or, in the case of socialism, worse than failed -- caused mass impoverishment and mass murder.) Are we tired of winning yet?

Turning the Tables on Tariffs

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

All of the “free trade” lectures from the media are aimed not at the combatants in this conflict but at its most passive chump. By “free trade,” the media means unfair and irrational trade at America’s expense. Trump isn’t committed to permanent tariffs. But the Western elite certainly is. They want a world of tariffs, just not one in which America can exact any.

Why Larry Kudlow Is Giving Donald a Chance

R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator

Kudlow is for American conservatives a well-known quantity. He has been leading the free marketers since the days of Reagan. He is pro-growth and has been for decades. He will have to contend with Navarro, the director of the White House National Trade Council. Navarro is no free marketer. Let the better man win and let negotiations begin.

The Art Of The Trump Trade Deal

Stephen Moore, Investor's Business Daily

The status quo on trade with China is untenable. Trump can't back down here. He's where Ronald Reagan was at the start of his presidency, when the air traffic controllers called his bluff and walked off the job. The Gipper took an action that rocked the world: He fired them. If this plays out the way we all hope, Trump may score the biggest victory for freer and fairer trade practices in American history. If China doesn't back down, things could get ugly.

Larry Kudlow For White House Economic Advisor

Larry Kudlow’s personal relationship with President Trump, his credibility with conservatives and Republicans on and off Capitol Hill, and most importantly, his ability to channel President Trump instead of trying to impose his own ideas make him the ideal candidate for the job of Chairman of the National Economic Council – we strongly urge the President to select Mr. Kudlow for the position without delay.
