The Presidential Coalition In The News

Presidential Coalition's Principles

Founded in 2005, the Presidential Coalition exists to educate the American public on the value of having principled conservative Republican leadership at all levels of government and to support the conservative "farm team." From Abraham Lincoln to Ronald Reagan to George W. Bush and Donald Trump, principled Republican Presidents have displayed the courage and wisdom necessary to guide our nation through some of our greatest and most difficult times. Their leadership has stood the test of time and made America great. These principled Republicans are the ideal role models for America's future leaders at the state and local levels of government.

Timeless principles such as the core belief in the importance of a limited government is something we are looking for in up and coming leaders. The mindset that the individual and family should be making decisions instead of the government is central to this philosophy.

Since a small government in size and scope is always best, keeping taxes to a minimum must also be a core belief for the next generation of conservative leaders. People should be able to decide how to spend their hard earned money, not the government.

Honoring the concept of the "citizen-politician" is another critically important attribute for the leaders of tomorrow. Our Founding Fathers envisioned representatives who would come to Washington to serve their country for a limited time and then return to their occupation back in their home state. The rise of the "career politician" has made the need for term limits at all levels of government absolutely essential.

Strong support of our police should be central in the belief system of any future political leader. Our men and women in blue put their lives on the line to keep us safe each and every day. The Presidential Coalition believes deeply that rock solid support of our police forces needs constant reinforcement by leaders at all levels of government.

Respecting the rule of law goes hand in hand with support of our police. We are a nation of laws and laws that are on the books must be enforced. The rise of sanctuary cities and counties has made this an enormous issue for anyone thinking about running for office at any level of government.

Wash Times: Trump to sign order creating voter-fraud panel

President Trump will sign an executive order Thursday creating a long-awaited commission to investigate voter fraud and elections, a senior administration official confirmed.

The commission will be led by Vice President Mike Pence and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who worked on the Trump transition team and is a vocal advocate of stronger immigration laws.

The commission was promised by Mr. Trump in the first weeks of his administration, after he asserted that illegal voting contributed at least 3 million votes to Democrat Hillary Clinton’s popular-vote victory in the presidential election. Mr. Trump won the presidency by capturing a majority of the Electoral College vote.

The commission will be tasked with studying “vulnerabilities” in U.S. election systems and potential effects on improper voting, fraudulent voter registrations and fraudulent voting, ABC News reported. The panel is also expected to examine claims of voter suppression.

A White House official said the panel will be “more forward looking” than simply reviewing alleged voter fraud and suppression.


Virginia AG Race: "Republican AG Candidate John Adams Seasoned and Ready For November"

Look out, Mark Herring … there’s a new guy in town, and he has a name every American should recognize.

Republican John Adams is coming on strong in his campaign for Virginia Attorney General, and he has the “it” factor that political types are always looking for in a candidate: Qualified, good looks, beautiful all-American family that includes a supportive wife and four sons, VMI grad, UVa Law School, and military veteran, clerked in D.C., and hometown boy who never forgot his roots and eventually moved back home ready to serve Virginia. Indeed, on his website he says, “I am a Virginian, not a politician.”

And, yes, he is related to that John Adams.

For Richmonders who remember Dr. Theodore F. Adams, the longtime, very well-known pastor at Richmond’s First Baptist Church … well, he was John’s grandfather. John Adams’ roots go deep in the Richmond community. He practices at McGuireWoods where he leads the firm’s Government Investigations department, managing more than fifty lawyers worldwide. He and his wife Lisa met in high school, and their four sons attend the same Chesterfield County public schools their parents did.

Wash Exam: The campaign by the Left to permanently obstruct Trump shows how desperate they're getting

By DAVID BOSSIE • 3/8/17 7:00 PM

The oppose-it-all, oppose-it-now, oppose-it-forever campaign of the Left is getting more and more desperate as reality sets in. This month, the balance of President Trump's Cabinet will be confirmed, Judge Neil Gorsuch will continue on his smooth path to Senate confirmation, and voting on the big ticket items on the White House's conservative reform agenda will commence. This means that we should all expect more hyperventilating from the liberal media about meetings with the Russian ambassador, more anti-free speech outbursts at liberal universities, more juvenile calls for the resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and maybe even an appearance by the community organizer-in-chief himself, President Barack Obama.

This destructive strategy of permanent obstruction is all that remains of the shrinking liberal ideology in America.

In the lead-up to Trump's incredibly well-received address to Congress, former Attorney General Eric Holder made news when he said Obama is poised to re-enter the political arena and is "ready to roll." This strategic announcement was meant to let the unhinged resistance know that their savior is ready to fight the Trump agenda.

Then, a few hours later, Trump delivered the best speech of his political career in which he laid out his common-sense agenda, including popular items like tax reform, enforcing immigration laws, and repealing and replacing the disaster that is Obamacare. Upon watching the presidential address, polling found that 57 percent of the American people had a very positive view of the speech, and almost 70 percent said the policies outlined would move the country in the right direction. Commanding numbers such as these are virtually non-existent in the United States today and must be causing panic attacks in liberal enclaves.

The best course of action for Trump going forward is to visit the many states he carried that have Democratic senators up for re-election in 2018 and repeat the speech he made to Congress at each stop. As Trump's optimistic and even-handed message continues to sink in, the chorus from the Left will become loonier. As more voters hear the president's agenda in states such as Missouri, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Ohio, it will pick up more bipartisan support from Democratic senators in these states because their constituents will demand it. The bad news for the Left is that most people want economic growth, better and cheaper healthcare, and sanctuary city reform — and that's exactly what they're going to get over the next couple months, because Trump keeps his promises.

If Obama takes a public leadership role in the failing "resist Trump" effort, he will damage his legacy. Most Americans understandably want their president to succeed. Reasonable people believe that when the president succeeds, Americans will be better off. The mood of the country improves, optimism increases, and the future seems brighter. Obama taking on his successor's agenda in the public arena is not something most Americans will appreciate. President Bill Clinton got out of the way of President George W. Bush. Bush got out of the way of Obama. These men understood that in the U.S. we have elections, elections have consequences, and one of the consequences is the winner gets to set the agenda.

It's not surprising that the Left is having a hard time coming to grips with voters' decision to reject a third Obama term. The people chose a Republican president, a Republican Senate, and a Republican House. By doing so, they chose to have Obamacare replaced with something that works, they chose a conservative as Supreme Court Justice Scalia's successor, and they chose to put "America First." Obama should respect the results of the election and focus instead on improving his golf game.

Trump's greatest strength is his ability to deliver his message of reform directly to the American people, just like I witnessed first-hand during the presidential campaign. If he stays on the principles he laid out before Congress, more of his agenda will be enacted and our country will be a much better place to live.

David N. Bossie is president of Citizens United and served as President Trump's deputy campaign manager.


Daily Signal: 3 Different Ways State GOP Lawmakers Are Fighting Sanctuary Cities

In states across the country, Republican lawmakers are aiming to combat sanctuary cities and counties, and in some cases banding together to develop new ways to prod local jurisdictions into helping enforce federal immigration law.

While these efforts are not unique—18 states introduced legislation to limit sanctuary policies in the 2016 state legislative session—they are taking a stronger force at a time when the Trump administration has begun reviewing how to punish sanctuary cities by withholding federal grant funding.

At the same time, states, cities, and counties that provide protection to immigrants living illegally in their communities have refused to back down.

According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, at least 29 states and Washington, D.C., are considering legislation in 2017 regarding sanctuary jurisdictions or noncompliance with immigration detainers.
