    A strong majority of anti-establishment conservatives in the House Freedom Caucus voted on Wednesday night to support Representative Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin for House speaker, assuring that he will have the votes to secure the post next week and averting a leadership crisis for Republicans. Mr. Ryan indicated that he was prepared to seize the gavel and try to bring unity to his party, which has been riven over how House leaders exert authority over members. That fight had become so bitter that it forced the resignation of Speaker John A. Boehner and derailed the candidacy of the majority...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was the undisputed winner of the first ever caucus of New Hampshire conservatives to rally behind a candidate in advance of the state's first-in-the-nation presidential primary in February. The 603 Alliance, a grassroots organization of New Hampshire conservatives, has endorsed Cruz.  Earlier this year the alliance began organizing the caucus as a means to prevent the conservative vote from getting split among so many candidates and thus handing the primary to an establishment candidate like Jeb Bush. The idea behind the caucus was that all conservatives present would throw their support behind the winner, whomever it...

    Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia will offer a primer on the separation of powers as laid out in the U.S. Constitution at the first meeting of a new group for conservative members of Congress. The Supreme Court and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) confirmed on Tuesday that the conservative justice was scheduled to speak at the inaugural meeting of the Constitutional Conservative Caucus, a group separate from the Tea Party Caucus Bachmann launched earlier this year. The new group, Bachmann says, will offer new members weekly classes on the Constitution and Declaration of Independence before they have been “co-opted into the...

    With President Obama expected tomorrow for the North American Leaders' Summit in Guadalajara, Mexico, a coalition of American legislators and activists took a message to the Mexican media, denouncing economic partnerships that would undermine national sovereignty and blasting Obama's failure to keep his promises on transparency and the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement. Howard Phillips, chairman of The Conservative Caucus and head of the Coalition to Block the North American Union, spoke to Mexican print, television and radio media about the summit, which was known in previous years as the North American Security and Prosperity Partnership, or...

Change that will bring accountability back to Ottawa. Change that will deliver real results for ordinary working families. Change that will allow us to build a Canada that is strong, united, independent and free. That is quite a challenge, my...
