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.

Media Ignores Great Economic News… Again

Inflation-adjusted disposable income rose 4.2 percent, last quarter, and America’s working families are seeing a continued gain in their disposable income, and thus a continued improvement in their quality of life. This is not only good news for America’s working families, it is good political news for President Trump, which is probably why it was buried by the establishment news media.

Assault on America, Day 58: Democrats won’t get away with abusing the blue slip & filibuster

When Democrats can’t legitimately win on the merits of an issue, they cook the rules to prevail regardless. It’s long past time Republican leaders reformed the process to function more like the Founding Fathers intended, and tyranny of the minority will finally become a relic of the past.

How Is Abortion After Birth Not News?

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

The big three networks offered more airtime and sympathy to vicious "ISIS bride" Hoda Muthana trying to re-enter America than they did for defenseless newborn babies, just as they felt the story of Northam wearing blackface was far worse than his favoring a woman's "right to choose" infanticide. Blackface drew hours of coverage, and infanticide drew about five and a half minutes on the Big Three network shows. If we can accept infanticide as a viable position, our civilization is finished.

Mainstream Media Blacks Out The Democrats’ Infanticide Vote

David Harsanyi, The Federalist

I will confess that the search tools for some of these sites are difficult to navigate, so I may have missed something. Clearly, however, most of the mainstream media sources did their best interference for Democrats on the Born Alive anti-infanticide bill, most of whom took an unconscionable vote this week that couldn’t be spun by the typical bias. Or put it this way, if Republicans had taken a vote that was deeply unpopular with the majority of Americans, you’d be hearing about it. Over and over again.

Ugly, Predicable and Irrelevant

What the Democrats, the anti-Trump media and the #NeverTrump crowd don’t seem to understand is that most of Michael Cohen's claims were aired in one form or another during the 2016 campaign and people still voted for Donald Trump.

Assault on America, Day 57: Democrats’ views on climate & abortion expose contempt for kids

As days go by it’s increasingly evident Democrats willingly deny common sense to further their designs on climate and partial birth abortion. It’s all part of the radicalization of their agenda and shines a bright spotlight on President Trump’s mission to return America to a sense of sanity.

The grim future lying in wait dead ahead

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

A man (or woman) looking only to the media for answers might well think we already have too many children, and they’re all “progressives,” i.e., liberals, many of them resemble the least educable of the millennials, and most of them are default fantasists. Ours is not any longer a thoughtful civilization, preferring to immerse ourselves in the trivia of Super Bowls, the lace on the gowns of the ladies on Oscar night, the economic fantasies of our children as told by scribes of press and tube who can’t themselves write a simple declarative sentence.

With their stance on infanticide bill, do Democrats show a death wish?

Quin Hillyer, Washington Examiner

(Pollster) Marist’s numbers should give Democrats pause. The recent, radical moves in favor of extra-late-term abortions and infanticide are clearly not playing well in the broader public. Thirteen years ago, Democrats howled when National Review’s Ramesh Ponnuru penned a thoughtful, full-length book calling them and the media together the “ Party of Death.” By their refusal to condemn infanticide — a stance, to put it bluntly, that is barbaric — Democrats risk proving conclusively that Ponnuru was right.

Assault on America, Day 56: Democrats running short on victims to purchase at the ballot box

If it were up to Democrats, they’d tax the wealthy out of existence and redistribute the booty to anyone who’d buy into their victimization credo and provide votes for them. Neither enacting universal daycare nor reparations for slavery would satisfy their hunger. In Democrat-land the sky’s the limit.

The Left’s Latest Demand: Race-Based Reparations

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

One need not be a cynic to suspect Elizabeth Warren's motivation. Her claim to be an American Indian angered Native Americans, and she would like to mollify them, and ingratiate herself with African-Americans, who constitute more than 60 percent of all Democratic voters in the crucial South Carolina Primary. By pushing for compensatory reparations, Warren and Kamala Harris may be helping themselves, but they are further splitting their party along the lines of ethnicity and race and elevating an issue certain to divide their country more than it already is.

That’s A Hard Pass On Socialism, Millennial Suckers

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Socialism here in America? No thanks. Not interested. And by “not interested,” I literally mean that I’d fight to the death to prevent you psychos from trashing the Constitution to impose a socialist regime here in America. And I’m not alone. I bet a bunch of you are down for the flag too. So millennial socialist twerps, keep running your vape holes about change and progress and all that stuff, but if you really want a revolution, you better put down your iPhones and learn how to shoot.
