To make it simple to let your Representative know that you want John Boehner removed as Speaker of the House, we urge you to sign our petition to second Rep. Meadows’ motion to vacate the Chair. We will forward it to your Representative on your behalf. Conservatives who wish to join CHQ’s effort to help Rep. Meadows can also call their Representative at 1-866-220-0044 and demand that he or she support Meadows’ motion to vacate the Chair.

Our friends at The Public Interest Legal Foundation have now filed a lawsuit in federal court against the Clarke County Election Commission in Mississippi because it has more voters on the rolls than living citizens.

Donald Trump’s staying power in opinion surveys has many pondering whether he can actually win the Republican nomination. Also, the latest on Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush, Mike Huckabee and the struggle to qualify for next week’s debate.

What really got Ted Cruz in trouble was not calling Mitch McConnell a liar – everyone in Washington already knows McConnell is a liar – what got Cruz in trouble with DC’s inside operators was telling the truth about how Capitol Hill works.

The Iranian Islamists have no intention of ending their war with us, and Obama’s plan to pay them to continue it, while giving them the nuclear weapons with which to win it, is giving aid and comfort to the enemy and nothing short of treason.

Today’s look at the 2016 GOP presidential race includes the “big” news concerning Jim Gilmore’s impending announcement, Carly Fiorina’s answers to real questions from conservatives and President Obama warns the world about the Republican candidates.

Readers asked me to expand on my Friday column about the rise of Donald Trump as a contender for the Republican nomination for President. In my view Donald Trump is just the latest in a long line of message carriers who have spoken for grassroots Americans fed-up with the duplicity and betrayals of the Republican establishment and Washington’s ruling class. One of the great ironies of the 2016 Republican presidential campaign may very well be that the establishment Republican political class will finally receive their comeuppance at the hands of Donald Trump, the most unlikely of populist conservatives.

A little over a week out from the first GOP presidential debate, the sixteen declared Republican candidates face the daunting prospect of trying to buck the party’s negative image, please its angry conservative voting base and win the nomination.

Friday, Senator Ted Cruz gave a powerful floor speech shining a light on the corrupt deal struck by Senate Republican leadership to allow the reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank. The establishment media made a big deal out of Cruz calling-out Mitch McConnell as a liar, but the real history-making aspect of Cruz's speech was the manifesto for conservative populism buried in the truth-telling about Mitch McConnell's duplicity.

While Chinese from all walks of life are comfortable telling foreigners what they think about their lives, leaders, and nation, sharing those beliefs with other Chinese is problematic. Unofficial intimidation, legal restrictions, and even prison time await those who take to social media and blogs to criticize Communist officialdom.

What the Republican establishment, and the Washington political elite in general can’t seem to grasp is Trump’s support is coming from the same place in American politics that the 2009 Tea Party movement came from -- the failure of the Republican establishment to stand for its own principles.

Front Page Headlines

  • Daniel Davis, Townhall

    Sen. Ted Cruz's public accusation that Mitch McConnell lied to fellow Senators has not gone over well among the GOP leadership. Establishment Republicans are predictably going after the Texas Senator and rebuking him for violating Senate etiquette.

  • Billy House, Bloomberg Politics

    Rep. Mark Meadows' resolution said Boehner had sought “to consolidate power and centralize decision-making, bypassing the majority of the 435 members of Congress” and had “caused the power of Congress to atrophy.”
    Meadows said he’s not asking for co-sponsors and hadn’t spoken directly with Boehner before filing the bid to oust him.

  • Jason Berry, globalpost

    A Vatican conference recently drew mayors from cities across the globe to discuss climate change and modern slavery. The event marked a new turn in Pope Francis' evolution as a global leader — and as the rare pope with an activist foreign policy.

  • Justin Wm. Moyer, The Washington Post

    “She’s a great person,” Trump said, “and Todd and the whole family. These are great people. And one of the things I most admire about her is that she took so much nonsense — lies and disgusting lies and she handles it so well. She’s tough and smart and just a great woman.”

  • Beth Reinhard and Christopher S. Stewart

    A Texas oil man, a Wall Street financier and several former U.S. ambassadors are among the top donors to Jeb Bush’s super PAC, providing hard evidence the Republican establishment is rallying to his presidential candidacy as he girds for a long primary battle.

  • John Podhoretz, The New York Post

    On Tuesday, CNN released a poll showing opposition to the deal at 52 percent and support at 42 percent. This came on the heels of last week’s Pew poll that showed 48 percent opposition and 38 percent support. It also followed passionate testimony on behalf of the deal in the Senate from Secretary of State John Kerry and Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz.

  • Lloyd Marcus, American Thinker

    Longtime Tea Partier Lloyd Marcus thinks Ted Cruz is the presidential candidate “most likely to remain true to their promises to We the People; fight to repeal ObamaCare, end the invasion of our borders, defend life and traditional values.”

  • Owen Strachan, RedState

    Planned Parenthood is facilitating preposterous acts of evil. In its abortion-and-fetal-tissue-business, it is doing the following: 1) killing innocent lives, 2) desecrating their bodies, and 3) profiting from these bodies.

  • Paige Winfield Cunningham, Washington Examiner

    A third Planned Parenthood video features a whistleblower who says her biomedical company would compensate Planned Parenthood clinics for fetal organs based on their condition and quality after being extracted from an abortion.

  • David Jackson, USA Today

    Another new poll out of New Hampshire indicates that Donald Trump’s recent dust-up with John McCain has not slowed the billionaire’s political momentum. Trump now has a 2-to-1 advantage over Jeb Bush among likely voters in New Hampshire’s Republican primary, according to a Monmouth University Poll.

  • Washington Times

    The GOP establishment is trying hard to downplay Donald Trump’s chances of actually winning the nomination, but they can’t ignore the most recent poll numbers. Trump’s message is resonating with Tea Partiers and his support appears to be growing with each successive survey.

  • Jackie Calmes, The New York Times

    While tensions between the ideological purists of the base and the pragmatists of the party establishment have simmered for decades, the breach has widened in recent years to nearly unbridgeable. Many Republicans now lament that the divide goes a long way to explain why their party lately has had so much trouble governing in Congress and picking a presidential nominee.

  • Bret Stephens, The Wall Street Journal

    Note the Journal’s Adam Entous and Naftali Bendavid in a deeply reported July 23 exposé that reveals as much about the sham disarmament process in Syria as it foretells about the sham we are getting with Iran.

  • Jeffrey Lord, American Spectator

    Lord describes Mark Levin’s new book: “A frightening look into exactly what today’s thoughtless and greedy ruling generation of Americans are leaving behind for the next generation — their own children.”

  • Brent Johnson, NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

    Two new polls show Gov. Chris Christie lost support in the early-voting states of Iowa and New Hampshire as Donald Trump surged into the top two of the crowded field vying for the Republican nomination for president.
