The Bangladeshi would-be bomber — a walking ad for Trump’s immigration policies

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Ullah never would have been in our country in the first place if another of Mr. Trump’s policies were already in place. This slug of humanity arrived here as part of the “chain migration” attached to an uncle who arrived here many years ago on a “diversity visa.” Mr. Trump firmly advocates ending both “chain migration” and the “diversity visa” lottery system. Neither Ullah nor his uncle would have been here if Mr. Trump — and millions of decent, hard-working Americans — had their way.

CMR: Judges Should Not Run Our Military

Federal judges do not have the power to run the military, but they will continue to do so unless the Executive Branch vigorously takes up the fight. Unfortunately, LGBT activists and Obama holdovers at Defense and Justice are about to give away core constitutional powers of the Presidency to the judiciary.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Will landing men on the moon help Make America Great Again?

Thinking big used to be a universal requirement from leaders of government, something we’ve steadily gotten away from in recent times. President Trump believes we can regain the same spirit that drove Americans to land men on the moon in the 60’s – here’s speculating he’s right again.

One Mueller-Investigation Coincidence Too Many

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Robert Mueller's legacy may not be that he welcomed in known pro-Clinton, anti-Trump attorneys to investigate the Trump 2016 campaign where there was little likelihood of criminality, but that he ignored the most egregious case of government wrongdoing in the last half-century.

Big media’s sad and extremely horrible week

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

The corrections, reflections, and over-the-top hand-wringing are set out now in everyone’s eye, thanks to a media dishing it out to everyone with a smartphone or a laptop. It’s often not very pretty. The hand-wringers in the newsrooms, complaining that nobody loves them anymore, should worry less about what their critics say about them and spend more time learning their craft. An editor steeped in the art of head-pounding would have told them that.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Doug Jones is now a Senator and Democrats STILL have no agenda

Roy Moore’s loss in Alabama is just the beginning of something, be it a complete reevaluation of the political situation in Washington or perhaps even a purge of the ruling class. One thing is for sure, however – the establishment is squarely to blame for Republicans losing a senate seat.

Why Do We Continue To Let These Vipers Into America?

The latest terrorist attack in New York demonstrates the urgency of the need to rein-in immigration by Muslims hostile to constitutional liberty and the values of the Western Enlightenment enshrined in our Constitution. The toll-free number is 1-866-220-0044 call today.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Alabama race unleashes swamp creatures’ insane fury against Roy Moore

The GOP establishment has been backed into a corner in Alabama, just as they were nationwide with Trump’s campaign last year. The American people no longer take the ruling class’s word at face value and they’ll likely be sending another message to the swamp today by electing Roy Moore.

The GOP Establishment Is About To Blow-Up The Pro-Growth Tax Plan

We urge CHQ readers to call their Representative and Senators through the Toll-Free Capitol Switchboard at 1-866-220-0044. Tell them to lower the corporate tax rate to 20 percent, keep the special rate for repatriation at 12 percent and to keep the focus of the tax reform bill on job creation and economic growth, not class warfare.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Spare the sex lectures, bring back the Founders’ morality and religion

John Adams was right – the Constitution can only thrive among a moralistic and religious people. If America is to be brought down it will occur from the inside-out. Our political leaders would do well to take Adams’ words to heart and act accordingly before it’s too late.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Roy Moore’s holier-than- thou critics prove elections have consequences

Regardless of one’s personal opinions on candidates, elections do have consequences – President Donald Trump is an excellent example. Good policy follows from sound votes – don’t let the integrity-less naysayers like Jeff Flake convince you otherwise. Vote for Roy Moore on Tuesday.

In a political world gone topsy-turvy, Mike Pence is the party leader

Salena Zito, Washington Examiner

Despite Mike Pence's creation of his own fundraising PAC, an unprecedented move by a vice president in modern American politics, this is not a coup. Instead, it is a smart strategic move by a White House aware that Trump’s strengths are in being a party leader or party builder — but a man willing to go to places where no Republican showed up before and ask in his own unique way for their vote. Conversely, Pence’s strength lies as the more traditional party leader and party builder roles held by the commander in chief.

Trump Fulfills Promise To Jews And Christians: Moves US Embassy To Jerusalem

While previous presidents have made moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem a major campaign promise, they failed to deliver. Yesterday, Donald Trump delivered on his promise to Christians and Jews and announced the historic move.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Could today’s media report on what really happened at Pearl Harbor?

Pearl Harbor Day deserves its remembrances as a tragic event that eventually brought a nation together. Back then Americans recognized a common enemy and got to work destroying it. Journalists helped in the endeavor – they were a long way from today’s jaundiced news reporters.

Jerusalem: Trump and Congress Challenge the Palestinians to Grow Up

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Anyone who actually cares about the Palestinians as people should welcome what America is doing now. It is perhaps the last best chance for the Palestinians to grow up, break free of their endless pattern of self destruction, and give up looking for excuses for another pointless intifada. Unfortunately, too many of those players enjoy the status quo, profit from it, or resist change in general, like the self-righteous European leadership.

The FBI-Led Coup Against President Trump

It is time for Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray to recover control of their agencies before the soft coup being led by Robert Mueller, James Comey and rogue FBI agent Peter Strzok engenders a real constitutional crisis.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: In politics is there really such thing as the ‘lesser of two evils?’

Political races should be judged on their own merits. Candidates by and large aren’t sinister and therefore can’t really be deemed “the lesser of two evils.” Roy Moore deserves a fair hearing by Alabama’s voters next week and despite what the media claims it appears as though he’ll get it.

Is Michael Flynn’s Defection a Death Blow?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

As last Friday’s sudden 300-point drop in the Dow reveals, if Trump’s enemies bring him down, they will almost surely crash the markets and abort the recovery that took hold in his first year. And if the establishment, repudiated by Trump’s victory, thinks they will be restored to the nation’s good graces if they destroy Trump, they are whistling past the graveyard.

It Is Now an Obstruction Investigation

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

I continue to believe accusations of abuse of power is the real danger for President Trump: A report by the special counsel, either through the grand jury or some other vehicle, concluding (a) that the president had obstructed the FBI’s investigation of Flynn and of Trump-campaign collusion with Russia, and (b) recommending that the matter be referred to Congress for consideration of next steps, potentially including impeachment and removal.

Media meltdown and the damage it does to democracy

Editors, Washington Examiner

These biases and the inability of reporters to suppress them long enough to do a good job, prompts proper public doubt about everything the national news media say. This is bad. It's very bad. The press is in the First Amendment because it — we — are needed to hold the powerful to account. We can’t do that if the people don’t trust us. After this weekend, asking the people to trust the press is a lot harder.
