Jeb Bush Just Disqualified Himself For The Republican Nomination For President

If you are the parent or grandparent of a child who will be entering the workforce in the next decade you owe it to your children and grandchildren to oppose Jeb Bush if he runs for President.

Are You Going To Let The US Chamber Buy The GOP?

Why We Must (Gently) Disagree With Rich and Ramesh

Now is the time for limited government constitutional conservatives to contest every primary and every election for precinct committeeman.

Government Is Punisher of Today's "Galileos"

As it was with Galileo in the 1600’s, so it is today with the federal government that punishes ‘heretics’ against it and its Ruling Class cardinals. It is the nature of human institutions, as “Galileo’s Torch” reminds us.

Reince Priebus: Why the Silence on Mississippi?

By Richard Viguerie, CHQ Chairman and Author

The fire the Republican establishment lit in Mississippi won’t go out because Tea Partiers and grassroots conservatives now understand that the Republican establishment is all about power, not principle, and that to govern America according to conservative principles we must defeat the establishment’s candidates in Republican primaries AND wrest control of the Republican Party machinery from them.

“This just threw gasoline onto the flames of the civil war,” said Richard Viguerie, a Repub. activist and the chairman of “What happened yesterday in Miss. will resonate for years to come. It will become the battle cry, just like the Alamo. We will remember Miss.”

The Fox and the Rabbit in Mississippi

Could Kevin McCarthy Be A Great Majority Leader?

By Richard A. Viguerie, Author & CHQ Chairman

The number one thing conservatives have lacked in my 53 years of being involved in the conservative movement at the national level is strong, articulate, effective leadership.
