House Freedom Caucus Members Stand With Judge Roy Moore, Ted Cruz Capitulates

Mark Meadows (R-NC) said after being asked about his support of Moore in lieu of the allegations. “At this point, it’s up to Alabama to figure out — Washington D.C.’s not going to decide that.… Keep Reading

House Freedom Caucus Gets Tough On Immigration, Calls To End Diversity Visa Lottery

The House Freedom Caucus, an organization consisting of staunchly conservative representatives, has thrown its support behind a bill that would end the diversity visa lottery program.

Rep. Justin Amash Slams Sellout Republicans Who Support Deficit Spending

Many believed that spending was out of control and the debt was sinking any prosperity this country could hope to find. Congressman Justin Amash… Keep Reading

Although the Trump administration and the House Freedom Caucus have been at odds this year, both factions are coming together against a new border tax.
