Three Glorious Days of Democrat Agony

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

February 3, 4, and 5, 2020 were pretty much the most miserable three days in the history of the Democratic Party. I’m not laughing, really I’m not! History will record that you managed to impeach Donald Trump. History will also record that Donald Trump beat you donkeys like rented mules. So, three bad days…okay, but the coming days will be brighter and better, right? I mean, you have a great candidate for…oh. Well, you’ll get a big boost with the economy…oh. At least you can still count on minorities to back you even though you never, ever perform on your promises…oh. Come to think of it, you Democrats might look back wistfully at the last three days because it’s only getting worse for you from here.

Next Democrats Will Be Tearing Out Their Hair

Normal people in outside-the-Beltway America are wondering what’s going to happen next after Pelosi tore up her copy of President Trump’s State of the Union speech and the Senate acquitted the President of all charges in the Democrats’ articles of impeachment. We predict the tearing of hair, accompanied by ashes and sackcloth when Democrats absorb the latest economic news.

‘Not Viable’: Biden and the Iowa Caucuses

Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

Biden’s best hope for rescuing his candidacy is to win the February 29 primary in South Carolina (where black voters are believed to be solidly in his favor) and then win big in the March 3 “Super Tuesday” primaries, where more than 1,300 delegates will be at stake. Even in that most optimistic scenario, however, Biden would still face an uphill battle, and even if he got the Democratic nomination, the party would be fractured, with Sanders’ supporters angry that they’d been cheated once again. It is nearly impossible to imagine Biden beating Trump in such a scenario. More probable is the verdict that came from precinct after precinct Monday night in Iowa: Joe Biden is simply “not viable.”

Never Trump challengers fizzle in Iowa voting

As good as the result was for the Trump team, it was, at best, a discouraging outcome for the Never Trump challenge. In late January, Bill Kristol pleaded on Twitter, "Iowa Republicans: Caucus for Joe Walsh or Bill Weld or uncommitted. You're better than Donald Trump. Don't stoop to support this man so unworthy of your support." Iowa Republicans ignored the entreaty, and others that came before it. Now, the campaign is on to New Hampshire. As in Iowa, Trump has planned a rally in the state before the primary. Again, there will be surrogates, and again, there will be stepped-up online campaigning. The result could be another difficult night for the quixotic Republican effort to stop the president.

Time To End The Corrupt Iowa Caucuses

This is the third time in a row the Iowa caucuses have been corrupted, twice by Democrats and once by Republicans. It is time for the Republican and Democratic Party national organizations to end this corrupt scheme to enrich the Hawkeye State’s political class and media companies.

Let’s All Pray For Rush

Rush Limbaugh has been a special friend to CHQ. At times like this one’s relationship with God comes into sharper focus, and we invite all CHQ readers and friends to join us in praying for Rush Limbaugh’s good health and recovery and for confidence and strength for his family.

He’s Not Even A Good Socialist

The media, being intellectually lazy, if not completely ignorant of the tenets of socialism, has bought Sanders’ self-labeling that he is a “socialist.” On matters of compulsion and totalitarianism Senator Bernie Sanders is a good socialist apparently, but on the real core value of socialism – everyone performing socially useful work – Sanders is MIA.

In Iowa, Trump dwarfs Democratic competition

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Trump's Iowa appearance was for a higher purpose: To mess with his Democratic opponents. Just zoom in on Air Force One, stage a rally bigger than anything they could muster in their wildest dream and zoom back to Washington, having shown again that he is big and they are small. Amid all the talk of the drama of the day in Washington, in Iowa, Trump is pushing one big point, and that is: My presidency is making your lives better, and you would be crazy to vote for anybody else in November. In 2016, Trump won a state that Barack Obama won twice. Now, no Democrat approaches Obama's stature, and Trump towers over presidential politics. That, too, is not likely to change by November.

A Short History Of Short Democrats Demanding Booster Boxes At Debates

Given the recent history of short Democrats running for President demanding booster boxes at debates, Trump is likely right and having fun playing 3-D chess with Little Mike. But the media chose to ignore Trump's most important point about Bloomberg, which was that the DNC is again putting the fix in to defeat Sen. Bernie Sanders.
