Must See Sen. Tom Cotton Video: Biden Will Bring Anarchy To Your Hometown

Senator Tom Cotton is right, Joe Biden is too liberal and too confused to lead, and if we allow Joe Biden to be elected President, anarchy will be coming to our towns and cities.

Peter Wood on the Vandalism of Civilization

Dr. Peter Wood is one of a small but brave band of academics who have the integrity to criticize the role of college and university faculty members and administrators in encouraging “the wreckage of the public square” as he put it. We urge CHQ readers and friends to call upon their colleges and universities, especially publicly funded institutions, to do their part in restoring the principles of respect for the common good and to oppose the wreckage of the public square.

Gun Grabbers Misleading Us

Walter E. Williams, CNS News

The so-called assault weapons ban and mandatory buyback plan that 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O'Rourke and others call for, will do little or nothing to bring down homicides. More homicides could be prevented by advocating for knife control, hammer control and feet and fist control. Gun controllers' belief that "easy" gun availability is our problem ignores U.S. history. Guns were far more readily available yesteryear. One could mail order a gun from Sears or walk into a hardware store or a pawnshop to make a purchase. With truly easy gun availability throughout our history, there was nowhere near the mayhem and mass murder that we see today.

How the left targets American history, statues and heroes

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

The United States exists as an idea. We are a nation which was not naturally formed due to geography, language or a shared history. Being an American stems from the idea of freedom. If you can demonize those who established that idea, remove them from the public square and even make it dangerous to discuss or laud them, America itself begins to disappear. The left knows this full well. For everyone else who understands the vital importance of our history, it’s time to make sure we do not surrender to this bizarre assault on our Founding, our heroes, and the past in general.

100 Years Of Teaching Children Lies About America

How did we get to a place where 64 percent of the men and women defending our country believe it is the source of most of the world’s ills? Over the next month we are going to explore that question, and the first part of the answer to that question is that our education system has become a vehicle for teaching children to despise their own country, its founders and its founding principles. #theLeftLies
