Donald Trump Moves Toward Cruz Position on Keeping Out Muslim Terrorists
In what may be an attempt to rally conservative supporters of Sen. Ted Cruz, Donald Trump has begun proposing a method of blocking the immigration of radical Islamic terrorists that is similar to a bill introduced by Cruz last November. Following the Orlando massacre carried out by Islamic terrorist Omar Mateen, Trump moved away from his previous call for a ban on all Muslim immigration. Instead... Read More >

My Conservative Dark Horse GOP VP Nominee: Rick Santorum

FedUp PAC Staff
By Richard A. ViguerieWhen I asked CHQ readers to help me crowd-source a running mate for Donald Trump, I was already thinking that former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum would make a good prospect, but I wanted to see if CHQ readers saw the same creative disruption in the selection of Trump’s running mate that Trump wrought on the presidential nomination in the primaries. I think the answer... Read More >

Ellmers Defeat Proves Conservatives Still Have Clout in Primaries

FedUp PAC Staff
The defeat of Congresswoman Renee Ellmers in her North Carolina primary should serve as a warning to those Republicans who think that, once elected, they can ignore their conservative constituents. Ellmers was elected in 2010 with Tea Party support and the endorsement of Sarah Palin. As a former nurse, her strong criticism of ObamaCare carried extra credibility. On Tuesday night, Ellmers not...

Media Bias, the Republican Establishment, and the “Mexican” Judge

FedUp PAC Staff
Most Americans, if they depend on the mainstream media, believe that Donald Trump simply concluded that because Federal Judge Gonzalo Curiel ruled against him the judge must therefore be biased as a result of his Mexican ancestry. The rush by Republicans to denounce Trump’s statement reinforces that belief. The facts are a little different. Trump says that he believes the suit should have been... Read More >
