Amy Klobuchar Wins the Democrats’ Vice Presidential Nomination

Amy Klobuchar had minimal national name recognition before this presidential race.  The odds of her defeating Biden, Sanders, and Warren seemed overwhelmingly against her.  Yet she persisted.  And now she has enough of a demonstrated following to make her the logical vice presidential choice of either Sanders or Bloomberg.

Assault on America, Day 407: Search for Dem White Knight becomes forlorn recovery mission

Logic says Democrats’ dissatisfaction with their presidential field will continue until party voters settle on a frontrunner, but that’s not likely to happen as long as the candidates are as divided as they are now. With no “White Knight” on the horizon, the party’s hopelessness will only intensify. Trump is looking terrific by comparison.

Biden Slinks Out Of New Hampshire Before Results Are Announced

In a move reminiscent of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Election Night disappearing act, the former vice president canceled his New Hampshire "victory party" as his campaign scrambles to keep his base of African-American support in South Carolina from crumbling under the weight of a fourth-place finish in Iowa’s chaotic caucuses and his humiliating fifth place finish in New Hampshire’s first in the nation primary.

Assault on America, Day 406: NH greases Bernie’s socialist wheel, establishment fumes

What a mess. The New Hampshire Democrat primary went absolutely as predicted. Sanders comes away with the undisputed win he was deprived of in Iowa and the “moderates” are left wondering what a Bernie-bro fueled fall candidacy might look like. Donald Trump won the day without even being on the ballot -- again.

We’re All Dog-Faced Pony Soldiers Now

Madison Moore’s question was a perfectly legitimate reality-based question, which Biden deflected with an insult rather than answering. While the form of Biden’s insulting deflection was something unique that only weird old Joe could ever come up with, deflecting legitimate reality-based questions is par for the course among this year’s field of Democratic presidential contenders.

Assault on America, Day 405: Romney, Hogg, and all of DC’s liars, sleazebags and opportunists

It's no secret that Washington is chock full of liars, sleazebags and opportunists, but what Mitt Romney did last week ranks up there with the most underhanded, publicity seeking stunts of all time. President Trump will succeed despite the presence of people like Romney. Who will history remember?

The Socialist Versus The Billionaire: Can Either Beat The Donald?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

If Biden is thrashed in New Hampshire on Tuesday, as he was in Iowa, does he remain viable in South Carolina, where he was so strong before the new year? Will African-American voters in South Carolina stick by Biden and his claim to be “the most electable” Democrat if he has been floored twice by Sanders and Buttigieg, and can’t seem to win within his own party? What I wrote before Iowa seems even more true today: “If Bernie can beat Biden two or three times in the first four primary states in February, the last remaining roadblock on Bernie’s path to the nomination could be Mike Bloomberg’s billions.” The Socialist versus The Billionaire. Could either really beat The Donald?

Pete Buttigieg Is No ‘Moderate’ On Abortion

By holding his platform "close to his chest," Buttigieg and his handlers hope he can fake out enough people who don’t support radical ideas, such unlimited abortion up to and past the moment of birth, to get elected and proceed to implement the ideas he supposedly wasn’t for.

Assault on America, Day 404: Biden’s facade candidacy implodes from lack of real substance

Impeachment will likely end up killing Biden’s final run for president, but there wasn’t much of a foundation for his candidacy to begin with. All along Joe chose to defend his son against some pretty obvious charges of political favoritism. It’s a choice he made… and the man chose his family over being president. So be it.

Assault on America, Day 402: Democrat NH debate -- Anger and Racism ain’t gonna do it

New Hampshire Democrats head to the polls in a few days and they’ll need to decide between the emerging party socialistic trend -- as embodied by Bernie Sanders -- and the establishment status quo (Joe Biden?). Pete Buttigieg is a possible alternative to Biden, but he didn’t inspire much confidence on Friday night. It’s certainly not an easy political dilemma for Granite State voters.

Assault on America, Day 401: Are Trump’s fans as tired of winning as Democrats are of losing?

Even a good many Democrats would admit it’s been a rough go of it lately, with President Donald Trump not only surviving their best shots, he’s actually making inroads with voters who heretofore wouldn’t consider choosing Republicans. Which begs the question: Are Trump’s fans as tired of winning as Democrats are of losing?

Bernie Sanders: The Best Man on Trump’s Team

David Catron, The American Spectator

For the GOP, Bernie Sanders' campaign has no downside. Trump will crush him. Now Sen. Sanders — complete with his record of praising communist regimes, his campaign for the Socialist Workers Party during the 1980s, a video of him partying drunk and shirtless with his Soviet comrades, another video of him heaping praise on the Soviet public transportation system, its “superb” cultural program for children, its “free” Soviet heath-care system, ad infinitum — is the choice of many Iowa Democrats to lead their party in the 2020 general election. Sanders is pleased with these results, presumably, but his complacency can’t compare to the euphoria it has produced among President Trump’s reelection team.

Next Democrats Will Be Tearing Out Their Hair

Normal people in outside-the-Beltway America are wondering what’s going to happen next after Pelosi tore up her copy of President Trump’s State of the Union speech and the Senate acquitted the President of all charges in the Democrats’ articles of impeachment. We predict the tearing of hair, accompanied by ashes and sackcloth when Democrats absorb the latest economic news.

Assault on America, Day 400: What to expect post-impeachment. A bestseller won’t reveal

Though no one truly knows what to expect now that Trump’s impeachment has been relegated to the trash heap of history, one scenario seems likely: Trump’s base has been activated and energized months earlier than in a normal election year and Democrats are in despair from failure. Who will win in the end? You be the judge.

Time To End The Corrupt Iowa Caucuses

This is the third time in a row the Iowa caucuses have been corrupted, twice by Democrats and once by Republicans. It is time for the Republican and Democratic Party national organizations to end this corrupt scheme to enrich the Hawkeye State’s political class and media companies.

Assault on America, Day 399: Magnanimous Trump wows Congress and country with SOTU

Every year the president’s State of the Union Address receives more than its share of commentary from the media and punditry, but Trump’s latest iteration might have more staying power than most. The magnanimous president faced real challenges on Tuesday evening and overcame them all. A very Trumpian performance, indeed.

Let’s All Pray For Rush

Rush Limbaugh has been a special friend to CHQ. At times like this one’s relationship with God comes into sharper focus, and we invite all CHQ readers and friends to join us in praying for Rush Limbaugh’s good health and recovery and for confidence and strength for his family.

He’s Not Even A Good Socialist

The media, being intellectually lazy, if not completely ignorant of the tenets of socialism, has bought Sanders’ self-labeling that he is a “socialist.” On matters of compulsion and totalitarianism Senator Bernie Sanders is a good socialist apparently, but on the real core value of socialism – everyone performing socially useful work – Sanders is MIA.

Assault on America, Day 398: What would have happened in Iowa if Democrats could count

Democrats should enjoy their one day of public-attention grabbing fun because all eyes shift back to Washington tonight to see how President Trump will handle his State-of-The-Union address flanked by his not-so-loyal opposition in the last gasps of a doomed impeachment trial. Will Bernie Sanders show up? No matter; he’s already full of glory after Iowa.

America’s Coming Three-Party System

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

One is Trump’s Republican Party. Call them the Trumpetarians. We can see them roughly once a week at one of his rallies so we know who they are—and they are enthusiastic, to say the least. Two is the Sanders or AOC-led socialist party. Call them the Bolivarians because of Bernie’s high-esteem for the Latin American autarchs only slightly less ruthless than El Ché. The Bolivarian rank-and-file, aka Bernie Bros., may be clueless about what they are getting into, but they are, nevertheless, also absolutely enthusiastic. Three is the old guard Democratic Party plus the NeverTrumpers (all fifty of them, including Bill Kristol). Call this group the Deep Staters. They are not enthusiastic.
