2020 Election

Call To Action On Transgenders In The Military

The Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) we urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Senators and Representative, tell them congressional action to repeal the 2018 Defense Department policy would do nothing to support the troops or to strengthen mission readiness and morale, and that you demand they vote NO on any amendment to the 2021 NDAA that would repeal President Trump’s sensible 2018 “deployability” policy on transgenders serving in the military.

The GOP Senate Is Asleep at the Wheel

Rachel Bovard, American Greatness

The Republican Senate is all that is standing between us and a Democratic Party that wants to remake our congressional institutions in a way that allows them to remake society. And yet it is unclear if anyone in the Republican Senate recognizes this. The Republican Senate expects Americans to come out and vote for them—for what? We need them to courageously defend the wholly American virtues of equality under the law, of justice for all, and to ferociously protect the freedom of individual Americans from the tyranny of mobs, the authoritarian thought control of woke corporations, and the corrupt power of the state.

Trump Has Already Won the 2020 Election

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

Too many Americans are what Kurt Schlicter aptly calls “normals.” These people aren’t just white. They are brown and black and yellow and everything in between. Some even cringe at some of Trump’s presumed excesses, but they cringe more at the thought that police will not be there in an emergency for their families. And they’ve seen that happen all around. They also despise the cancel culture because they are basically good human beings. They don’t see a difference between “defund the police” or “redirect the funds” because political spin is as familiar to them as apple pie. And then there’s China. And then there’s Durham.

Don’t Cancel Nick Cannon. Cancel 'Cancel Culture'

Our friend Adam Guillette, President of Accuracy in Media, opposes cancelling Nick Cannon for his hateful comments about white people and Jews, arguing conservatives and libertarians do not stand to gain from normalizing cancel culture tactics. As we saw in cities throughout our nation just a few weeks ago, the Left will always be much better than us at mobilizing unruly mobs. And who among us desires to live in a society dominated by mob rule?

Assault on America, Day 566: Campaign switch in leaders isn’t a retreat, it’s a redeployment

Last week’s Trump campaign personnel switch could turn out to be a wise move if the new leadership is able to steer the president back towards a message-based approach to defining his opponent while touting his own accomplishments. Four years ago, Trump ran on a platform of Making America Great Again. There’s no reason to abandon the concept now.

Who In Washington Wants Steve Stockman Dead? 'Someone at the Top'

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Former Rep. Steve Stockman is the only over-60 diabetic prisoner remaining at the Beaumont, Texas federal prison facility, which also has the highest per capita COVID-19 infection rate of any prison in the country. And he’s been told by prison officials he will not be leaving on orders “straight from the top” in Washington!!! It’s clear someone wants him dead.

It Is Time We Adopted A ‘Second Tower’ Mentality

When the first plane hit the North Tower of the World Trade Center everyone knew something was terribly wrong, but they were in a First Tower Mentality. When the second plane hit the South Tower, everyone suddenly had a Second Tower Mentality - they knew America was under attack. So, are you still in a First Tower Mentality about the Revolutionary events that have been happening these past five months? Or have you had your Second Tower Moment yet?

Assault on America, Day 565: Trump must pound the facts, law and emotional appeal to win

The 2020 election will be heavily influenced by the coronavirus pandemic, but Americans want to see the big picture as well. President Trump has a lot going for him in the issue realm if he would simply drop the personal stuff and focus like a laser on promoting policies that make people realize the world’s not coming to an end.

Why the Polls Predict Trump Will Win

David Catron, The American Spectator

Few election polls include, “Who do you think will win the upcoming election?” Pollsters know about the research, they are familiar with the predictive nature of voter expectation surveys, and they know that including such a deadly query will produce accurate results that will enrage their paymasters. They remember what happened to Nate Silver when he suggested Trump had a chance of defeating Hillary Clinton in 2016. The pollsters and the pundits who write about their findings don’t want to be canceled for telling the truth, that a number of polls contain citizen forecasts indicating Trump is going to win.

Insignificant Never Trumpers have no reason to vote for Biden

R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The Washington Times

Two problems face the Never Trumpers. All the chief architects of the Never Trump movement are either has-beens or never-weres. I was dimly aware of a few of these Machiavels — probably owing to my legendary long-term memory — but most of them I had never heard of before and probably never will again. As for problem number two, none of the Never Trumpers could come up with up a compelling reason to vote for Joe Biden as an alternative to the president when Joe finally emerges from his basement to challenge the president. Donald, his tweets aside, brought us to a robust economy. He is doing it again.

Conservatives Gather To Protect Emancipation Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Our friend Star Parker, President of Urban CURE, recently led a group of some 200 patriots in a demonstration of support for retaining the Emancipation Memorial at its historic location in Washington, D.C.’s Lincoln Park. The memorial depicts a courageous Archer Alexander who risked his life to be free. And it depicts a courageous Lincoln who paid for his convictions with his life. To join Star’s campaign to save the Emancipation Memorial click this link.

The New York Times Meets Lord Of The Flies

The very public resignation of New York Times contributing editor and writer Bari Weiss describes an extremely dangerous Maoist atmosphere at the New York Times that could reach critical mass at any institution that has a large staff that has passed through American higher education in the past decade or so.

Assault on America, Day 562: Brace yourself for 2020’s unconventional party conventions

With one month to go until the parties’ political conventions, it’s still very much up in the air as to what they’ll look like and who will be permitted to attend and participate. Democrats and Republicans take different approaches to dealing with the CCP virus pandemic and its possible threats, and this will be no typical year for political theater.

Trump needs to articulate a clear second-term agenda

Editors, Washington Examiner

If President Trump wants to convince voters that he deserves a second term, he must spend the remainder of the campaign clearly explaining what he intends to accomplish if he’s granted one. So far, he is not doing so effectively. Trump's defenders may argue that he is pursuing the same political strategy that worked for him four years ago. But there’s a big difference between running as a challenger and running as an incumbent with a record. So far, Trump’s attacks on Biden have fallen flat because Biden is not as viscerally disliked as Clinton. Simply mocking Biden’s many verbal miscues is not going to be enough.

School Board May Be Your Most Important Election

This year school board elections are more important than ever. The first issue many school boards must address this year is whether and how to reopen schools – and make no mistake this decision by a minor elected body will have vast economic and social impact on your community. Then there’s another issue of immediate import your local school board must also address – keeping your local  schools free from Leftwing propaganda in the form of the 1619 Project and the Black Lives Matter at School curricula.

Do This Today! Practical Activism To Get Your Schools Reopened

Most states have not yet come to a decision on reopening schools in the fall and in what capacity they might do so. The Save Our Country Coalition  has developed a “reopen our schools” plan of action that begins with a letter writing campaign addressed to local school board members. We urge CHQ readers and friends to copy this letter or download it through this link and send it to members of your local school board TODAY!

Assault on America, Day 561: Dems can’t steal MAGA, how about MAO (Make America Obama)?

Democrats don’t have an agenda apart from constantly pecking at Trump, pandering to their leftist/racist constituents or proposing the destruction of any remaining vestiges of capitalism in favor of big government boondoggles that will never work. The Green New Deal? Scary. Maybe their new campaign theme should be, “Make America Obama,” a.k.a., MAO.

Can Trump Pull a Truman?

Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News

A medical, economic and a cultural and social crisis, have hit all at once, raising some fundamental questions. Does America retain the unity, strength and sense of purpose to lead the world? What the Trump folks must do now is to zero in on Biden's vulnerabilities, personal and political. First among these is Biden's transparently diminished verbal and mental capacity. Second, the Biden campaign has embraced an agenda that is, in part, Bernie Sanders-AOC-Black Lives Matter. The Trump folks need to force Biden to come out of his basement and either embrace or renounce the radical elements of his agenda.

Trump Needs to Scale the Real Wall of 2020

Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness

Trump already is starting to do the first thing superbly: stand up for America prior to May 25 (when George Floyd was killed), and tell Americans that in this 244th year of their existence, they will not cowardly renounce their heroes like Washington and Lincoln. Thomas Jefferson was not Jefferson Davis. Second, Trump cannot just talk of his pre-virus administration. Finally, Trump needs to emphasize not just the efficacy of his administration but its effects on real people. Trolls, washed-up celebrities, know-nothing pampered athletes, and hack leftists don’t deserve mention in the campaign’s final 100 days.

Why Has Biden Hired 600 Lawyers?

David Catron, The American Spectator

In 2016, at least six states were decided by less than 1.5 percent of the vote. Any state that goes to Trump by a narrow margin will be pounced upon by Democratic pettifoggers screaming about “voter suppression” and proposing bizarre recount schemes. The good news is that the increasing anger of ordinary Americans over the past four years of Democratic skullduggery will almost certainly result in an electoral backlash resembling Reagan’s 1984 rout of Walter Mondale. Indeed, like Mondale, our erstwhile VP has promised to raise taxes. Trump will trounce Biden so badly that 6,000 lawyers won’t be able to save him.
