Machiavelli Looks at the Goings-On in the US House

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Walking in the shadow of Dante, Machiavelli, Michelangelo and Leonardo, giants of human civilization, you're struck by how little of interest or merit is going on now on both sides of the Atlantic — how small we have become, trivial actually. We're a bunch of bores, really. Civilization is not at its height. We don't even have the excuse of an epidemic, let alone war. We're living "Envy in the Time of Tedious Petty Outrage." John Brennan and Adam Schiff are symbols of our time, not Botticelli or Lorenzo de Medici.

Fight Over Infanticide Is Just Beginning

Tony Perkins, CNS News

If a majority of the Members of Congress sign the discharge petition on the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, the Speaker will be forced to bring it to the floor for a vote (the petition will become eligible for signatures early in April). That's a public process, thanks to work that Senator Inhofe did in the 1990s. Every signature will be out in the open, in plain view of voters. Do your representatives just give lip service to ending infanticide – or do they mean it? Americans are about to find out.

Assault on America, Day 65: Turmoil in today’s Dem party, where common sense is apostacy

Things are quickly changing for today’s Democrats. One minute they’re rallying behind the old guard (represented by Nancy Pelosi and creepy “Chucky” Schumer), the next they’re clinging to young radicals like AOC. Who will prevail in the struggle to control the liberal party’s future?

Dems have only themselves to blame for Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic comments

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

The Democratic Party is increasingly both the anti-Israel party and home to a growing number of anti-Semites. To be clear, the two things are not always the same, but something is going on when both are defining elements of a political organization. Any Republican who does not support Israel likely would be shunned by the evangelical movement, which in some states constitutes the largest single bloc of GOP voters. Dems have failed to deal with anti-Semitism forthrightly, and now are confronted by a metastasizing cancer in their ranks.

The Deep State Past and Present

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

The insidious power of the unelected administrative state is easy to understand. After all, it governs the most powerful aspects of modern American life: taxes, surveillance, criminal-justice proceedings, national security, and regulation. The so-called deep state is often weaponized to reflect current orthodoxies. In the past 30 years its operating premises have embraced multiculturalism, feminism, and identity-politics diversity — more or less the sacred tenets that Trump has targeted.

The left's new arrogant heroes and their hypocritical views

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

Most of us do our best to recycle and take other energy-saving actions. We make an effort to live up to the standards we espouse in life. When your mission, however, is to coerce every other American into living the life of a caveman in the dark ages because of “climate change,” you have a special responsibility to take it seriously and behave as though you actually believe what you’re saying and pledging to do to everyone else. Facts do matter, and celebrity won’t protect you from everything.

Our Planet Is Not Fragile

Walter E. Williams, Townhall

Leftists constantly preach such nonsense as "The world that we live in is beautiful but fragile." "The 3rd rock from the sun is a fragile oasis." "Remember that Earth needs to be saved every single day." These and many other statements, along with apocalyptic predictions, are stock in trade for environmentalists. Worse yet, this fragile-earth indoctrination is fed to the nation's youth from kindergarten through college. That's why many millennials support Rep. Ocasio-Cortez.

Assault on America, Day 64: Presidents need a congressional check, not an abusive impediment

Some would argue it’s about time we had a national conversation on executive powers, but the Democrats’ resolution blocking Trump’s emergency declaration isn’t the right occasion. Senator Rand Paul isn’t wrong very often, but this is one position he’d be wise to reconsider.

Dumb And/or Dishonest Liberals Insult Your Intelligence

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Let’s be clear – Donald Trump has no moral obligation to torpedo the slow but steady and real progress he has made with North Korea towards avoiding a war that would send tens of thousands of American soldiers home in boxes simply because the media wants a gotcha moment on camera. Diplomacy is not pretty, and it must pain the Warmbier family, but there are tens of thousands of American lives at stake and if Trump is willing to swallow hard and say what he must to save them, then God bless him for it.

The Left’s Racist Insanity

We see in the debate over whether Will Smith is dark enough to play Richard Williams that the Left’s long-term effort to divide America along racial and ethnic lines is rapidly reaching its logical conclusion in which “colorism” is now to be added to race and ethnicity to become a dividing determinant.

Assault on America, Day 63: Only in Democrat- land is calling someone ‘decent’ a downer

Common sense indicates President Trump doesn’t have much to fear from Joe Biden or any challenger in 2020. Whenever a presidential hopeful must explain why he called someone “decent” to his potential backers, it’s not a harbinger of electability. Such is the dilemma of Democrats today.

Assault on America, Day 62: Impeachment and primary challenges won’t derail Trump train

Democrats and #NeverTrumpers dream about impeachment and possible primary challenges -- and other means -- to end the Trump presidency early (such as through the ill-defined 25th Amendment). It will take much more than hope to take Trump down; the voters will decide.

The relentless Democratic search for the unicorn

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Mr. Trump was elected not because he was qualified to be the superintendent of the Sunday school, but because even with a past he was not as sordid as the woman he was running against, who was hardly qualified to critique anybody’s past, having defended her husband’s wicked abuse of other women. But it may not cost him much political skin. The party that tried to foist Hillary Clinton on the republic this time offers a rich buffet of presidential candidates who don't really offer voters much. No wonder the unicorn hides in the woods.

Did Trump Lock-Up 2020 In One Speech?

President Trump correctly identified the issues at bar in 2020 as the American dream versus the socialist nightmare. Democrats are already helping President Trump put their socialism on trial by embracing socialist candidates,  and by ratcheting-up the socialist rhetoric. It is up to us conservatives to make sure Trump obtains the conviction.

Assault on America, Day 61: On Trump and Kim, saying something nice is the best way to win

Results-oriented Donald Trump no doubt couldn’t care less what his detractors said about his recently concluded meeting with Kim Jong Un. Trump indicated the process will take a long time and it’s good they’re still on positive personal terms. Trump’s right, and history backs him up.

Is the American Century Over For Good?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

In 1968, George Wallace of Alabama tore the Southern populist right out of the Democratic Party. Liberals Gene McCarthy, Robert Kennedy and George McGovern then savaged Vice President Hubert Humphrey from the left. The Grant Park rioters did the rest. Nixon, leading a minority Republican Party, had a compelling argument: "If the Democrats cannot unite their own party, how can they unite the nation?" Today, a watching world is asking: If you Americans are at war with yourselves over race, religion, morality, culture and politics, if you cannot unite yourselves, how can you unite the world?

I Have Some Questions About The Democrats’ Reparations Plan

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

What will resolve the racial divisions in this country is not a cash transfer but – and you liberals are going to hate this manifestly true statement of fact – a return to the Judeo-Christian values and principles of our Constitution that recognize the worth and dignity of each individual based upon his or her character, as well as a total repudiation of the racial hucksterism that is destroying our culture. It’s the race hucksters who owe all of us reparations – but I don’t want their money. I just want them to stop destroying my country.

California’s Rendezvous with Reality

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Spiraling entitlements, unwieldy pension costs, money wasted on high-speed rail, inadequate water storage and delivery, and lax immigration policies were formerly tolerable only because about 150,000 Californians paid huge but federally deductible state income taxes. No more. Californians may have once derided the state’s 1 percent as selfish rich people. Now, they are praying that these heavily burdened taxpayers stay put and are willing to pay far more than what they had paid before. A California reckoning is on the horizon, and it may not be pretty.

Exposing the obscenity of infanticide

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

Make no mistake: The revelation over the past several weeks that Democrats have indeed moved to normalize infanticide was a kick in the gut and has reinforced and expanded the common ground Americans share on the issue. In the span of one month, as the New York and Virginia shocking moves toward late-term abortion and infanticide became national news, American attitudes changed almost immediately. Now is the time for us to recognize our common ground, and to work together on exposing and stopping the obscenity of infanticide as politicians openly and brazenly attempt to desensitize the rest of us into their nihilistic view of humanity.

Eight House Republicans Join Democrat Gun Grab

HR 8 isn’t a crime prevention bill, it is part of the Democrats’ long-term plan to disarm the American citizenry to make us more pliable victims for the socialist utopia they plan to impose upon us. The next stop for HR 8 is the US Senate, we urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Senators TODAY. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) urge them to vote NO on HR 8.
