2020 Election

Going Forward Republican Voters Must Demand 3 Things From Their Candidates

Tucker Carlson, Fox News

Tucker Carlson said Republican officeholders are not working hard enough for the American people and, at a moment like this, that's a severe and dangerous problem in a monologue delivered on his FOX News program. "Republican voters should demand three things from their candidates: First is vigorous defense of total equality under the law. Second, they must defend our freedom of speech. And finally, the GOP exists to the serve the interests of normal people. Can Republican politicians change their party? Sure. We just have to make them. They won’t lead. We know that now. That means we have to. They will follow."

Democrats Now Stand For The Exact Opposite Of The Declaration Of Independence

It is important to remember that the patriots who fought our Revolution didn’t fight for the Constitution; they fought for the Declaration of Independence and a unique “pre-Constitution” revolutionary vision of individual liberty. Today, the liberty of Americans is once again threatened, this time by those who profess the ideology of the new Democrat Party – whose ideas and policies are almost the polar opposite of those expressed in the Declaration of Independence.

Assault on America, Day 547: Founding Fathers vs. Marxist #BlackLivesMatter, a comparison

In normal times, Independence Day was something all Americans would honor if not celebrate. But as has been demonstrated a lot recently, there are many in this country who seek to trash and remove the past. We can’t allow them. The proponents of Black Lives Matter are nothing like the Founding Fathers. Now more than ever, we recognize it.

Beware, President Trump, of the enthusiasm gap ...

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

While you cannot find a single rioter cheering on Mr. Biden’s candidacy (because nobody cares about it), there are plenty of counter-protesters out there who do care passionately about Mr. Trump and they are proud to show that support. This is how Mr. Trump winds up retweeting an insanely stupid video of some old guy in a golf cart shouting “white power” in response to a bunch of noisy, obnoxious protesters. All that really matters is that those persuadable voters in the middle who just want it all to stop saw Mr. Trump escalating the caustic mayhem by applauding one of his supporters for saying something stupid.

The Only Guy Who Can Beat Trump Is Trump

By Richard Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
If Trump allows the campaign to be all about him – if he keeps sucking the oxygen out of all his winning issues, and allowing the Democrats’ frightening agenda to be obscured in the fog of his outsized personality, he’s going to take the House and the Senate, and the future of constitutional liberty down with him. Donald Trump the America First patriot cannot allow himself to be remembered by history as Donald Trump the egotist who put nihilistic Socialist revolutionaries in charge of the greatest nation on earth.

Wall Street A New Front In The Cold War With Red China

We urge CHQ readers and friends to call the White House (202-456-1111) to demand that the President use his executive authority to prohibit companies owned or controlled by the Chinese Communist Party, the Red Chinese government, the People’s Liberation Army of China and other Chinese military and intelligence entities from accessing U.S. capital markets.

Assault on America, Day 546: To Democrats, police reform is all about grift and naked politics

Even if times are changing, Democrats in Congress don’t seem to alter their approaches any. If there’s a way to clog up the system with additional bureaucracy and litigation, they’ll find it. The liberal party rejected Senator Tim Scott’s police reform bill purely due to political reasons -- and because the South Carolinian is an African-American Republican. Shameful.

Trump Will Win If He Responds to Righteous Voter Rage

Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness

If the disaffected translate their growing fury into voting for someone perceived as answering calmly and forcefully back, protecting them, and punishing those who so brazenly flaunt the law and humiliate any who call them to account, then Trump will be reelected and more easily than our experts can imagine. The choice is still Trump’s: stay calm, speak softly, and carry a club, while promising for the future to protect the vulnerable of all races and classes, and restore a great nation; or talk loudly carrying a twig while whining about unfair personal treatment of the past. It's Victory vs. Socialism.

Assault on America, Day 545: No retreating on reopening the economy despite COVID-19 spike

News of a dramatic increase in COVID-19 cases last week was seemingly greeted with relief by elements of the media. If true, the naysayers argue, the economy can’t be reopened, people will still be out of work and government will need to act -- again -- to take care of the unemployed. Then there’s the alternative, which is full speed ahead. Which way should we go?

Assault on America, Day 544: Yes, Obama, we cling to guns, religion and conservative media

Having Democrats blaming conservative media figures for the way things are in the U.S. today isn’t new. Bill Clinton all-but pinned 1995’s Oklahoma City bombing on his conservative critics. Then Hillary coined it “The vast rightwing conspiracy.” President Trump is no fan of the “fake news” media either. The battle for the news narrative will continue.

2020 Election Will Be a Contest of the Angry

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

For good or evil, the 2020 election is no longer really about Biden and Trump, Democratic or Republican policies, or progressive and conservative agendas. Racism, the protesting Left says, is in the American DNA. It finally requires massive cutting, chemotherapy, and radiation — treatment that deservedly will sicken and may even kill the host. The other half of the country will vote to preserve what is under attack. The angry and the demonstrating are loud and visible; their opponents are angry and quiet. The election will reveal not just who is more numerous — but sadly also who is the angriest.

Assault on America, Day 541: ‘Preacher’ Trump should take a page from 2016, pack substance

President Trump is one of the most talented politicians of the modern age, yet even he could stand to alter his approach to politics from time to time. Elections are always about the future and at his next rally, Trump would do well to talk a lot more about what he intends to do in his second term, something that would reassure more than his already dedicated fans.

Assault on America, Day 540: Crime up in cities, but who to blame? Depends on who you ask

The 2020 election is destined to be one heck of a nasty fight. Who will get the blame for the rancor? Hint: His name starts with Donald and his last name rhymes with “bump.” And it’s not because he’s mean or racist or was a celebrity and regular presence in the tabloids. It’s because Trump represents a complete departure from the status quo. To the elites, that’s bad.

Toxic in Tulsa: Trump misses opportunity to heal and unify a divided nation

Cal Thomas, Washington Times

(Constructive criticism of the Tulsa speech.) This president should take a lesson from Ronald Reagan, who frequently referred to Democrats as “our friends on the other side.” He never diminished their value but instead argued why the ideas of conservatives and Republicans are better. This is what all but the angry mob wants to hear. It’s not about him, it’s about us — we, the people, not you the president. The presidency is an honor and privilege that has been granted to only 45 men in our history. With great privilege comes great responsibility. We are better than this. We deserve better than this.

Assault on America, Day 539: Democrats and the media play ‘unity’ card, but it’s a huge bluff

Democrats did their darndest to ruin President Trump’s Tulsa rally, but if you listened to the content and themes of the speech, it still was a huge success. The opposition party may depict themselves as “unified,” but just below the surface is a seething cauldron of anger and disagreement. It’s only a matter of time before it explodes into something more sinister.

A Presidential Campaign Simile: Storm-Tossed Galleon

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

If Trump lets these fresh winds at his back catch his full sails and ride the waves, then he will coast to port and victory. But if in frustration and still angry at past rough headwinds, he belatedly climbs up the mast and begins slashing huge tears in his canvases — stooping to tweet replies to an absurdly irrelevant Joe Scarborough, deviating from a great speech at Tulsa to reenact his walk down a ramp, going back and forth in trivia with Jeff Sessions and John Bolton — then the favorable tail winds will blow right through his ample but now rent sails, and his ship will coast to a stop or flounder.

Somebody call 911; Joe Biden needs a body cast

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Mr. Trump is the incumbent president, yet somehow Democrats picked the one person that allows Mr. Trump to run for reelection — as an outsider! It’s like Mr. Trump is charging the gates all over again. It’s been four years and still he gets to play the barbarian! As always, Mr. Trump lives off the dishonesty of the media who warn of certain death at a Trump campaign rally, even as they applaud the violent mobs burning and looting in the cities. Mr. Trump could not conjure up more perfect enemies to run against. These are not paper tigers invented by Trump; they are tissue dragons of their own making.

Take Teddy Roosevelt Off Mount Rushmore While You Are At It

Like all historical figures, Teddy Roosevelt’s legacy is complex, but if his own descendants won’t defend the first President to invite an African-American to dine as a guest at the White House, far be it from us to take on the woke social justice warrior mob to defend the legacy of the egotist who split the Republican Party and set the stage for the election of Democrat Woodrow Wilson, one of the most virulent racists to ever sully American politics.

Assault on America, Day 538: Do Democrats still want to swap Andrew Cuomo for Joe Biden?

There haven’t been many bright spots in the political realm lately, but one was when Gov. Andrew Cuomo fell out of favor with the adoring establishment media. Common sense doesn’t always matter in our politically correct modern society, but numbers still carry some weight. Cuomo failed to safeguard his constituents, and the truth caught up with him.

Lindsey Graham Joins Democrats Opposes Trump And Barr On NYC U.S. Attorney

The toll-free Capitol switchboard is (1-866-220-0044), we urge CHQ readers and friends to call Senator Graham to tell him President Trump deserves to exercise the full power of his office to appoint any qualified person to the office of U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. Tell him the so-called Senate tradition of honoring “blue slips” gives Democrats a power over President Trump that they never gave Republicans when Obama was President.
