Left Moving From Proof Of Concept To Execution On Plan To Bring Down America

Three things now moving rapidly below the surface of American politics and culture should alert conservatives to the extreme danger now facing the United States and the future of constitutional government. Millions who had never had it so good on New Years Day 2020 are now desperate about how to pay their rent or mortgage, where next week’s groceries will come from and how to pay April’s bills.

AR-15 Build - Our CHQ Cabin Fever Project Part 2, Step1 Lower Receiver Assembly

Many would be gun buyers have found popular guns, such as the AR-15, to be as scarce as toilet paper. This temporary demand-based shortage of AR-15s has prompted many Americans to take the practical and perfectly legal (in most jurisdictions) alternative of building their own AR-platform rifle. Follow us in Part 2 of our project as we ward off cabin fever and exercise our Second Amendment rights by building an AR-15.

Assault on America, Day 457: No rewind possible for 2020 election or Congress’s fiscal insanity

You know we’re in strange times when people seriously ponder postponing this year’s election or doing a “rewind” on the political nominating process. Now more than ever it’s prudent to take a step back and consider everything we’re doing -- and proceed cautiously. Let’s not make a bad situation worse.

Democrat Governors Sisolak and Whitmer Backtrack on Political Chloroquine Bans

Democrat Governors Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan and Steve Sisolak of Nevada decided to dunk on President Trump by banning the drugs hydroxychloroquine sulfate and chloroquine phosphate after Trump touted early studies demonstrating their efficacy against the COVID-19 virus. Then the Food and Drug Administration issued an emergency authorization for the drugs to treat COVID-19 and now Sisolak and Whitmer are singing a different tune.

Assault on America, Day 456: Trump and Pelosi don’t talk to each other. Is anyone bothered?

No one will lose sleep over the fact President Trump and Speaker Pelosi don’t speak and government will go on regardless of their failed personal relationship. In these trying times when we’re all searching for answers there aren’t any rules on political decorum. Trump will focus on doing his job, not pundit gamesmanship.

The ‘Orange Man Bad’ Disease

Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

The “Orange Man Bad” theory of causation: everything bad is Trump’s fault and this theory's proponents evidently can’t understand why it has cost them their credibility. So far, U.S. deaths from COVID-19 are still only a single-digit percentage of the more than 30,000 Americans who die annually from ordinary flu infections. As bad as the coronavirus outbreak is — and it’s likely to get much worse before it gets better — we must keep it in perspective. We must be able to distinguish between real risks and the politically motivated fear campaign being hyped by the media. The coronavirus pandemic will end, but the media’s liberal bias is incurable.

Assault on America, Day 455: Dems to replace Biden as nominee is best April Fool’s joke ever!

Coronavirus is proving to be no April Fool’s joke and neither are reports that some Democrats are plotting to remove Joe Biden as party nominee in favor of Gov. Andrew Cuomo or someone else. Speculation is fun but not exactly fruitful in times like these and the process will play itself out like it always does.

Fear Porn Decision-Making

These stay-at-home orders from the Governors of Maryland and Virginia and similar ones issued in other jurisdictions, have been taken solely on the governors’ authority, based on one thing: Fear Porn. Fear-based decision-making is destroying the country and the economy; it is time for our leaders to stop watching the Fear Porn and to set some procedures and deadlines to get America back to work.

Assault on America, Day 454: Bunker-down Joe and the jealous media default on coronavirus

Amidst the 24/7 news cycle on coronavirus, not many people care about nor hear what Joe Biden has to say about leadership and the appropriate response to the situation. Biden could’ve easily taken a supportive role on the issue, but he didn’t. In contrast, Trump looks presidential and in command. And voters recognize the difference.

Is The Constitution Worth Dying For?

The Second Amendment, the First Amendment, the Fifth Amendment, the Fourteenth Amendment and the rest of the Constitution are unequivocal and living in a free society involves accepting certain risks. How about instead of using the coronavirus epidemic to suspend the Constitution we all act like responsible citizens, stay home and self-isolate if we are at risk, wash our hands, sanitize common surfaces, such as door knobs and grocery carts, get ourselves checked if we feel ill and keep our liberty.

Rep. Thomas Massie Was Right

If we accept that our elected leaders can ignore what some have sneeringly called constitutional niceties at this early stage of the epidemic response we can only imagine how much worse for constitutional liberty things are going to get, but by that time it will be too late to thank Rep. Thomas Massie for his principled warnings and objections to this massive assault on the Constitution and our federal system of limited government and ordered liberty.

Assault on America, Day 453: Joe Biden’s China syndrome will sink his shaky presidential hopes

There’s lots to complain about China in these difficult times, and as Mark Twain famously said about the weather, no one was doing anything about it. That all changed when Donald Trump ran for and won the presidency, and he’ll continue to hold Chinese leaders accountable for their complicity in the coronavirus pandemic.

Trump’s Strategic Foresight Is Being Put to the Test

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

President Donald Trump will have to possess the confidence to see how the world’s greatest economy, greatest medical talent, greatest military, and greatest energy and food production can all be marshaled in a symphonic fashion. That correct formula could fend off a potentially biblical plague without destroying the largest economy in history. If Trump exhibits such cunning and wisdom, then he can balance the consensus of his medical experts that the virus is existentially dangerous with the warnings of his economic advisers that shutting down a multi-trillion-dollar economy can become even more ruinous — and lethal — for Americans.

The Red Chinese Aim To Use The Wuhan Virus To Win Their War Against America

Red China has long aimed to replace the Dollar as the world’s reserve currency and Wall Street and the US sovereign bond market as the world’s economic safe havens. The Wuhan virus may be a natural mutation, or a virus that jumped from an animal to humans, or it may be an escaped bio-weapon, but whatever its origin the Red Chinese aim to take advantage of the havoc wreaked by the COVID-19 epidemic to win their long war against America.

$2 Trillion Not Enough: Democrat Gov. Cuomo Wants You To Bail Out New York

The toll-free Capitol Switchboard number (1-866-220-0044), we urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Senators and Representative to demand that not one penny of your federal tax dollars go to replace lost tax revenue for the state of New York or any other state or local government.

Assault on America, Day 450: In COVID-19’s wake, fiscal sanity is demanded, not requested

States have the leeway to set their own guidelines on dealing with the coronavirus conundrum. Sooner or later the nation’s economic health must be given its due consideration, largely because Congress can’t keep assembling multi-trillion-dollar aid packages. The future has arrived and we can’t afford to dismiss it.

From President Trump, An Admirable Tweet

R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator

President Trump tweeted late Sunday night that “We cannot let the cure be worse than the problem itself.” And he went on,  “At the end of the 15-day period, we will make a decision as to what way we want to go” (all caps in the original). My spies tell me the president has been listening to the right people in and around the White House. America is not a hospital ward. America is a vast country with the most successful economy ever. It is a capitalist economy. From time to time it is hit by unforeseen misfortunes. This time it was hit by an unforeseen virus, but the economy must go on. We need not destroy our economy over this pandemic.

Is President Trump’s Optimism About Reopening America Justified?

We agree with President Trump that America should be reopened for business sooner rather than later, but the only way for that to work is for all Americans to act to mitigate the transmission of this new disease to their vulnerable neighbors and family members. Go to 15 Days To Slow The Spread, follow the guidelines, and prepare to discipline yourself to keep following the hygiene guidelines once the lockdown begins to come off.

When Evil Meets Stupid

It should probably not surprise us that the latest gambit Far Left progressives have deployed against Donald Trump is to blame him for some of the dumb things desperate people have done to try to protect themselves from coronavirus. The most notable, and truly evil, example of this phenomena is the media and Democrat politician reaction to the sad fate of an Arizona couple.
