The Capitol Switchboard is (202) 224-3121 we urge CHQ readers and friends to call House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Mike Turner, tell him you appreciate his aggressive posture on investigating the Biden security breaches. Tell him you are with him and that you are counting on him to expose and refer for prosecution any security breaches or corrupt practices his investigation reveals.
Globalists tell us we have been destroying this once glorious world by our use of its natural resources; by our “greedy” demand for private property rights, thus our freedom; and, especially, by our beliefs that liberty and property rights are vital principles for a just world.
By Jeffrey A. Rendall Here’s thinking months from now no one will be talking about the “motion to vacate” or the actions of the 20 conservatives to force Kevin McCarthy to reinstate long-observed House chamber rules at the beginning of the current Congress. Overreaction to change is an American political staple. Reality is often something different.

By George Rasley, CHQ Editor“Potemkin village” has come into common parlance to describe efforts to put a false front on an otherwise grim situation. And in going to extraordinary lengths to put a false front on a grim situation, the Russians, historical and present, have nothing on the Democrat city officials and Biden administration immigration officials in El Paso, Texas.
By Jeffrey A. Rendall It's tempting to want to declare total victory – and play “We Are The Champions” – after conservatives forced Speaker Kevin McCarthy to agree to do things differently this Congress, but there are many, many more miles to go on the road to correcting the badly broken federal government. Let’s feel good about what we accomplished, but the work continues.
By George Rasley, CHQ EditorThe notion that seniority should decide Chairmanships and states somehow “deserve” a Committee Chairman probably died when Speaker McCarthy concluded the Rules agreement with the 20 conservative holdouts and set the new GOP House majority on a decidedly conservative path that does not include “working across the aisle.”
Anti-Trump zealots, when out of power, insist such extraordinary measures should not be emulated and institutionalized by their opponents, much less ever boomeranged back upon their creators. Should the Republican House majority reply in kind? Somehow supposedly worldly and sophisticated partisans in their self-righteousness ignored ancient laws of what goes around comes around, of Karma, of Nemesis, of payback’s a bit—h, and all that stuff.
Yes, Biden’s Filegate Is Impeachable
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
It doesn’t matter that Senate Dems won’t take up the impeachments. The House impeachment trials are just the right kinds of ordeals that can shake loose chaos in the administration to match what it’s done to the American people. Remember Trump’s first impeachment and what a distraction and a mess that was? Why wouldn’t we want to gum up Biden’s team in a similar way? Create discomfort for Biden and his cabal. And see what it shakes loose.
Gingrich on Biden/Documents Case: 'This Is Not Going to Go Away. It's Going to Get Bigger'
Susan Jones, CNS News
Republicans are redoubling their pressure on AG Merrick Garland to appoint a special prosecutor. "If the FBI were serious, they would be looking at all of Biden's multiple homes; they'd be looking at all of Biden's offices for last ten years, just to figure out what else is there out there that we haven't seen yet?" Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told Fox News on Wednesday night. "This is not going to go away. It's going to get bigger."
DeSantis Eyes Ban on China-Based Entities From Purchasing Florida Property Andrew Thornebrooke, The Epoch Times
“If you look at the Chinese Communist Party, they’ve been very active throughout the Western Hemisphere in gobbling up land and investing in different things,” Gov. DeSantis said on Jan. 10. “And, you know, when they have interests that are opposed to ours, and you’ve seen how they’ve wielded their authority… it is not in the best interests of Florida to have the Chinese Communist Party owning farmland, owning land close to military bases.”
The Conservatives’ Game of Chicken Pays Off, We Hope Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
This whole “THE GOP CANNOT EVEN ELECT A SPEAKER” thing will fade, to be followed by “THE GOP IS UNABLE TO GOVERN” thing that will follow when conservatives flex their new-found muscles. There are going to be more fights, and while we should not engage in dumb ones, some fights are necessary. Was this one? Yes, maybe not exactly as it went down, but in the end, we got the right Speaker and the right rules. So, it’s a good beginning. I hope.
Trump eyes S.C. event in late January to jump-start campaign in early primary state Tom Howell, Jr., The Washington Times Former President Donald Trump is planning to accelerate his 2024 campaign for the White House with an event this month in South Carolina. The late January event in Columbia will not be a rally but an “intimate” function to debut his leadership operation, Politico reports. Mr. Trump announced his bid in November, an unusually early launch as he contends with a series of criminal and civil probes. But the campaign had been relatively quiet.
