Five House Republicans Who Need Conservative Primary Opponents

Conservatives were united in opposition to the Democrats’ recent passage of H. Res. 124, a bill urging the military hierarchy to disobey lawful presidential directives on transgenderism and military service. If there were ever examples of RINOs who need conservative primary opponents it is the five Republicans who joined Democrats to pass the Resolution.

CNN Officially Out Of Investigative Journalism

Given CNN's history of biased coverage of President Trump, it seems clear to us that, based on the results of the numerous studies the MRC has conducted on the network, CNN long ago got out of the investigative journalism field, it has just taken Jeff Zucker all this time to admit it.

Assault on America, Day 86: Mueller witch hunt showed nothing on media we didn’t already know

The media can’t be counted on to report the truth, a fact discerning Americans realized long ago. The Mueller/Russian collusion fiasco was just the latest in an unbroken string of media excesses and oversteps. It’s up to the well-informed to educate the ignorant. Will we do it?

Call Congress: Oppose House Resolution 124 To Force The Military To Enlist Transgenders

The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) we urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Representative TODAY. Tell your Representative to vote NO on HR 124, a Democrat bill that would force the military to enlist transgender recruits and essentially demands that the armed forces disobey the policy directives of the Commander-in-Chief.

Assault on America, Day 85: Can the GOP ignore the popular vote and win again in 2020?

With the Mueller report failing to show any “collusion” between Trump and the Russians, expect Democrats’ calls to prop up the popular vote and abolish the Electoral College to intensify. Republican leaders may have already given up on winning the vote tally, but it won’t matter in the end.

Is It Unfair to Ask Who Did This to Us?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

The Mueller investigation employed 19 lawyers and 40 FBI agents. It took two years. It issued 2,800 subpoenas. It executed 500 search warrants. It interviewed 500 witnesses. And it failed to indict a single member of Trump's campaign for collusion with Russia to influence the 2016 election. Which raises this question: If Mueller could find no collusion, after an exhaustive two-year search, what was the compelling evidence that caused James Comey's FBI and Barack Obama's Department of Justice to believe that such collusion had occurred and to launch this investigation?

14 House Republicans Stab America In The Back

Clearly the appropriations clause is not a suicide pact. If 1/3 of a million Red Chinese were poised to cross our southern border the President would have the power to act if Congress dithered because he has the constitutional duty and authority to act as Commander-in-Chief to protect the sovereignty of the United States and the lives and property of its citizens.

Assault on America, Day 84: Trump’s America is hot and cold and satisfied and dissatisfied

Yes, it’s possible to be hot and cold at the same time and both satisfied and dissatisfied simultaneously. Not everything President Trump’s done in his first two years made America great again but he’s definitely on the right track. “Haters gonna hate”; the rest is up to us.

Apologies to President Trump

Sharyl Attkisson, The Hill

With the conclusions of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe now known to a significant degree, it seems apologies are in order. However, judging by the recent past, apologies are not likely forthcoming from the responsible parties. In this context, it matters not whether one is a supporter or a critic of President Trump. Whatever his supposed flaws, the rampant accusations and speculation that shrouded Trump’s presidency, even before it began, ultimately have proven unfounded. “Sorry” hardly seems to be enough. Will anyone be held accountable?

Trump, falsely accused of collusion, faces new onslaught of obstruction accusations

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Democrats will now point out that one can be charged with obstruction of justice even if there was no underlying crime. That is indeed true. But the Trump-Russia fight of the coming year will not be a legal debate. It will be a political debate, as Democrats seek to damage the president going into the 2020 election. And in the political debate, Mueller's clear conclusion on the underlying issue of collusion, that there wasn't any, will give the president a very powerful argument.

Did The Establishment Media Have Any Credibility To Lose?

The establishment media has been leaning left since the 1970s. Trump gave everyone permission to acknowledge whose side the media is really on, and those outside the establishment are no longer bashful about saying they do not trust the media to provide accurate facts free from bias in favor of the liberal establishment.

Assault on America, Day 83: Mueller conclusion leaves Dems in shallow woeful loser bracket

Robert Mueller’s conclusions didn’t surprise anyone who’s paid attention to the facts since the sorry episode began. Democrats placed all their eggs in the wrong basket -- again -- and it’s left them looking puny and pathetic. Their day of reckoning is coming soon; maybe by 2020?

Assault on America, Day 82: Why the name McCain always starts a brawl in Trump’s GOP

The late John McCain continues to be a lightning rod in today’s volatile GOP intra-party climate. Even after death McCain represents a way of thinking that’s no longer compatible with the new direction of the swamp-battling Donald Trump. Perhaps it’s time we all realized it.

Can Trump Win Again in 2020?

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Trump now has a record, not just promises. Of course, his base supporters and furious opponents have widely different views of the Trump economy and foreign policy. Yet many independents will see successes since 2017, even if some are turned off by Trump’s tweets. Still, if things at home and abroad stay about the same or improve, without a war or recession, Trump will likely win enough swing states to repeat his 2016 Electoral College victory. Democrats think 2020 will be an easy win over a controversial and often wounded president. Republicans thought the same thing in 2012.

Like him or not, Trump speaks fluent political prose

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Trump uses rough speech, never concerned about giving himself cover for retreat. This takes him into places nobody else would go, such as a fight with a dead man (John McCain), or intervening in a fuss between a man and his wife (Kellyanne Conway and her husband George) because such attempted intervention is grossly impolite and probably impolitic, too, and a busybody’s errand, since an outsider never knows what he’s talking about. But whatever the Donald’s faults may be a lack of confidence is clearly not one of them.

Trump Should Quit Twitter — After He Wins

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

AFTER the election, assuming he wins and even if not, Trump can quit. He would be doing a great service, liberating us from at least one of the pernicious social media sites. Those of us who are parents have watched in despair at the negative influence these companies have had on our children (particularly Facebook in that regard). Without social media, we could all go outside and play again. Hey, spring is around the corner. So do it, Donald. After the election.

A History Lesson For Jeb Bush

As we see it, Jeb Bush’s claim that he wants a primary to spark “a conversation about what it is to be a conservative…” is nothing more than a cover story to justify a scorched earth primary campaign against Donald Trump that would only advantage the Democrats and jeopardize all the conservative successes of Trump’s first term.

Assault on America, Day 79: If we stall on the Green New Deal, will we all melt in 12 years?

Just like with building a house, every policy proposal must have a solid foundation. Without proper study and foresight ideas quickly fall apart, especially if they’re weak to begin with. The Democrats’ Green New Deal would be an exorbitant disaster and must be stopped.

Assault on America, Day 78: If husband and wife can’t agree on Trump, how will America survive?

Like today’s opinion polls, the idiosyncratic and contradictory marriage of Kellyanne and George Conway fails to reveal why the Trump presidency remains so polarizing for Americans. Time passes and opinions change, yet the country seems strangely set on their impressions of Donald Trump.
