Senate majority Leader Mitch McConnell

Which Mitch McConnell Will Show Up To Defend The Unborn?

We applaud Senator McConnell and over forty other Republicans for co-sponsoring S.130 the “Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act”, but whether the bill ever gets a vote depends entirely upon which Mitch McConnell shows up – the somnolent one who caves to every Schumer threat of a filibuster or the aggressive one who is muscling through S.1 to limit the President’s options in Syria and Afghanistan.

Capitol Hill’s Invisible GOP “Leaders”

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
The headline events of last week revealed Capitol Hill’s Republican leaders Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Minority Whip Steve Scalise and the rest of the House GOP leadership team and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Assistant Republican Leader John Thune and Senate Republican Conference Chairman John Barrasso to be feckless, cowardly and unwilling to fight for the GOP’s principles.

Dear Senator McConnell,

Trump’s Budget: GOP Congress On The Spot

The pressure from Capitol Hill’s big spending establishment Republicans won’t be to cut the budget, it will be to fund the increased spending on defense and homeland security AND all the domestic boondoggles that President Trump wants to eliminate to pay for his shift in priorities.

How The GOP Leadership Stokes Conservative Outrage

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

Conservatives didn’t win the Panama Canal Treaty battle, but its leaders inside and outside of Congress became the leaders of the Reagan Revolution.  Lack of legislative success is a scarecrow to explain away the fact that today’s GOP leaders don’t fight, let alone win, because they don’t see values worth fighting for in the conservative agenda. Quite simply, they are not us.

Whose Idea Was This Amnesty Defunding Mess Anyway?

Capitol Hill's establishment Republican leaders put themselves in this mess, because back in December they wouldn’t fight for conservative principles and instead chose to worm their way out of the immediate crisis of funding the government by passing the hated “CRomnibus” so they could take off to their Christmas and holiday vacations, and avoid a potential government wide “shutdown” that fighting Obama’s amnesty then would have entailed. Did they ever plan to make good on own plan to stop Obama's unconstitutional amnesty?

McConnell Setting Up House Conservatives On DHS Funding

All of Mitch McConnell’s maneuvering leads us once again to conclude that he has no intention of winning the fight against Obama’s unconstitutional “executive amnesty.” What McConnell really wants to do is get by this battle so he can get on to “governing” which, to him and his fellow establishment Republicans, means dispensing to their friends and special interests the largess extorted from producers by the welfare state.

Big Week Coming; Will Capitol Hill GOP Leaders Deliver?

This week Capitol Hill Republicans face two showdowns with President Obama and the Democrats that will either make or break their standing with grassroots limited government constitutional conservative voters – defunding Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty and the confirmation vote on Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch.

Question for Mitch McConnell: WWHRD?

To advance the conservative agenda in the Senate Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is going to have to get as tough and ruthless as Harry Reid was as the Democratic Majority Leader. But Mitch McConnell is neither tough nor ruthless; he’s a dealmaker and “conciliator” in the mold of his establishment predecessors like Howard Baker, Bob Dole and Trent Lott.

Boehner: Democrats must 'get off their ass' on DHS bill

Erin Kelly, USA TODAY

House Speaker John Boehner said Wednesday that Senate Democrats should "get off their ass" and stop blocking a $40 billion Homeland Security bill that would derail President Obama's immigration programs.

GOP Could Give Obama’s Immigration Plan a Free Pass

Eric Pianin, The Fiscal Times

Congressional Republicans want a graceful way out of a showdown with President Obama over their threat to withhold funding from the Department of Homeland Security in order to block Obama’s unconstitutional executive actions granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.
