Capitol Hill’s Invisible GOP “Leaders”

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
The headline events of last week revealed Capitol Hill’s Republican leaders Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Minority Whip Steve Scalise and the rest of the House GOP leadership team and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Assistant Republican Leader John Thune and Senate Republican Conference Chairman John Barrasso to be feckless, cowardly and unwilling to fight for the GOP’s principles.

Assault on America, Day 34: Trump should use SOTU bully pulpit to highlight best of America

Those hoping President Trump’s State of the Union address will help end the current political stalemate between the parties will be sorely disappointed. Nothing short of complete capitulation to Democrat demands would satisfy the opposition. The future is at stake…will people wake up?

Ralph Northam Is The Perfect Democrat

In his support for “partial birth infanticide” and race baiting campaign ads Ralph Northam ran as the perfect Democratic candidate for Governor. Now that the real Ralph Northam and his racist background has been revealed, his willingness to lie his way through a crisis in the best tradition of Bill and Hillary Clinton is likely to save his tenure as Governor.

The Establishment Media And Ed Gillespie Made Racist Ralph Northam Governor

The Gillespie campaign's opposition research was pathetic, but the media, and Washington Post in particular, don’t look for evidence of racism on the part of Democrats because they are deeply invested in the narrative that Republicans are racists and they don’t have any interest in turning up evidence that would disrupt that narrative by showing real racism on the part of Democrats.

Assault on America, Day 33: The Patriots won the Super Bowl; who will triumph on the border wall?

Because the parties are so far apart on the border wall funding dilemma, there’s no easy answer in sight. Democrats won’t consider the arguments in favor of a barrier despite having recognized them in the past. The Super Bowl had a winner and loser -- will it be the same in Congress?

Why Trump Will Win the Wall Fight

David Catron, The American Spectator

Trump's SOTU address will deliver all manner of good news about the economy, deregulation, health care, foreign policy, and will have laid out a plan for the wall. The Democrats will have offered identity politics, obstruction, investigations, and magical thinking on policy. Pelosi will at length decide it’s smarter to ignore the crazies in her caucus, give Trump something that he can call a “win” on the wall, and move on to something else… anything else. And all the TDS victims and Never Trumpers will demand to know what happened to their bête noire.

The Infanticide Craze

Ramesh Ponnuru, National Review

Supporters of the country’s expansive abortion regime now fear that the Supreme Court will retreat from it, either by declaring that the Constitution permits states to protect unborn children in general or by letting them offer more protection. That’s why they are pushing legislation in the states to codify that regime. It is an effort that is forcing supporters of abortion to be a little more candid about what they really want: an extreme regime that denies any meaningful protection to unborn children and threatens the protection for born ones.

The Boundless Depravity Of Democrats

In their embrace of "partial birth infanticide" Democrats in Virginia and New York have entered a realm of depravity not seen since Adolf Hitler began a program of eugenics and euthanasia to “cleanse” German society of people the Nazi elite deemed undesirable.

Assault on America, Day 30: Democrats’ nutty ideas doomed to drive Americans back to GOP

Democrats’ lack of “forgiveness” or understanding for average Americans will certainly sound their death knell at the ballot box -- and that’s especially true where the border barrier is concerned. You know how Americans feel about Democrats not achieving anything? Yeah… they’re against it.

Black Like Me -- An end to Plantation Politics

Sheriff David Clarke (Ret.), Townhall

The American left, the liberal media and race hucksters have made the National Anthem at sporting events an identity politics issue. In a perverted way, the left has made honoring America synonymous with condoning racism in the past and present. I left that plantation a long time ago and have no intention of returning either voluntarily out of intimidation or by capture regardless of the hate and vitriol hurled my way. I’ll determine and define what it is to be authentically black, and it’s black like me.

Don’t expect Democrats’ new taxes to stop with the wealthy

Betsy McCaughey, New York Post

Dems’ tax schemes are more about punishing the “rich” than helping the poor. The Dems’ share-the-wealth schemes will end up fleecing millions more people, not just what socialist Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez misleadingly calls the “tippy-tops.” A wealth tax is a lot more intrusive than submitting a W-2, by the way. Warren’s plan calls for more IRS agents and more audits. Agents will have to value your home, your cars, furniture and jewelry every year. Yikes. Fair warning to hard-working, successful people.

2020 Democrats' fuzzy Medicare math — let's spend $32 trillion more!

Editors, Washington Examiner

Left-wing Democrats have always had a difficult, not to say hostile, relationship with budget math and economics. Yet, they promote this program anyway on the theory that federalizing medicine will somehow result in better care. It has not done so elsewhere in the world. One cannot change the basics of healthcare just by making government pay for it. One would hope that Democrats might have learned their lesson after Obamacare made insurance less affordable. Those who aspire to positions of authority should learn from their mistakes instead of seeking to compound them.

Assault on America, Day 29: 2020 Democrats look like a parade of the expended and tired

Democrats aren’t so busy celebrating their “victory” on the border wall funding scrap with President Trump to look ahead to next year and who will try to beat him. The old and tired wing of the party has Joe Biden -- and probably Hillary Clinton… better prepare for a failure of epic proportions.

Mueller, An Odd Hero for the Lawless Left

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

During the Clinton years, we heard a lot from the left about the “criminalizing of political differences.” We don’t hear those laments anymore. Liberals used to tell us that Trump had no intention of winning in the first place and was as surprised as anyone by his victory. They champion Mueller not because he is protecting “our sovereignty,” as one Hollywood starlet recently put it, but for the simple reason that he is tormenting their political opponents.

Assault on America, Day 28: SOTU postponed but Trump will enjoy last word in standoff

It’s a shame the State of the Union address did not go on as planned but President Trump is far from ready to capitulate on border wall funding. Americans will eventually see Speaker Pelosi for the unbalanced partisan hack that she is -- and politics as usual may finally be put to rest.

When Will the Rising Tide of Bias Against Christians Stop?

Penny Nance, Real Clear Politics

There is a striking and alarming trend that uses a religious litmus test to determine if individuals are fit for public service and demands that those in office deny their conscience and beliefs. Freedom of religion is a First Amendment right set forth by our Founding Fathers, not some new conservative fad adopted since the Trump administration came into office. This trend has now spread to accusing the spouses of our public servants of bigotry and hate for their religious beliefs, and it must stop. Using a religious litmus test as a prerequisite to serve in office is unconstitutional.

Assault on America, Day 27: Catatonic GOP leaders own the next shutdown… if there is one

Next to the inability to fund the border wall, Republican leaders’ silence is the single most disappointing aspect of the struggle to control illegal immigration. Appearances mean things -- if McConnell and McCarthy are to join the fray it’s time to fish or cut bait. Fence-sitters lose every time.

Can 'Liberal' Dems Face Their Outrageous Anti-Semitism Problem?

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The Democrats have a serious anti-Semitism problem — and it's growing. Making matters worse is that very few of them acknowledge it. Most look away, pretending it's not there or deliberately not seeing it at all.It's simple to say the Jewish "liberals" (or progressives or whatever they want to call themselves) are not Jews at all because most do not practice. But Hitler, of course, did not care. He swept up the communists with the Hasidim. The whiff of Berlin 1938 is in the air. The Democratic Party better police itself or the whiff will turn into a stench.

Assault on America, Day 26: Media says Trump caved on wall, but it’s Democrats in the dark

Democrats’ intractable position on border wall funding will invariably force President Trump’s hand -- and that’s something Trump relishes. Democrats could be reasonable and accept the president’s compromise offer…or more likely end up with a wall on the border and nothing for their side.

Pelosi and the Caucus of Crazy

David Catron, The American Spectator

Not all Democrats are racists. Some are anti-Semites. A few are socialists. And some are old-fashioned crooks. Nancy Pelosi and a few others are merely megalomaniacs. One hardly needs heavyweight political scientists or sophisticated historians to predict what happens when this volatile admixture is combined with large quantities of special interest money and unlimited political power — you get crazy. What you do not get is reasonable compromises on important issues. And you certainly don’t get good government.
