Which Mitch McConnell Will Show Up To Defend The Unborn?

We applaud Senator McConnell and over forty other Republicans for co-sponsoring S.130 the “Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act”, but whether the bill ever gets a vote depends entirely upon which Mitch McConnell shows up – the somnolent one who caves to every Schumer threat of a filibuster or the aggressive one who is muscling through S.1 to limit the President’s options in Syria and Afghanistan.

Ban On Bump Stocks To Begin March 26

According to the notice in the Federal Register, the Department of Justice is amending the regulations of the ATF to clarify that bump-stock-type devices - meaning “bump fire” stocks, slide-fire devices, etc. - are “machineguns” as defined by the National Firearms Act of 1934 and the Gun Control Act of 1968. Gun owners have responded by filing a federal lawsuit in the Western District of Michigan.

Rubio Leads The Gun Grabbers

Red Flag laws sound reasonable, as gun confiscation laws often do, but here’s how it worked in Maryland. Answering a 5:00 a.m. knock on his door, Gary J. Willis, a 61-year-old resident of Maryland, was shot and killed by police when they were attempting to confiscate his firearms under the state’s “Red Flag” law.

Trump Is Both Right And Wrong On Syria Pullout

President Trump is right, there is little value in staying in Syria if Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Iraq are prepared to mop-up the scattered remnants of ISIS, but the President is wrong, and deeply so, if he thinks that killing a few thousand jihadis and retaking some desolate ground in the Middle East ends the war political Islam, and Iran in particular, have declared on the West.

The Politicians Who Killed Mollie Tibbetts

Mollie Tibbetts was killed so that somebody in Iowa could have cheap labor, and she was killed so that members of the Business Roundtable and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce could hit this quarter’s earnings target, and most shamefully, she was killed so that virtue signaling liberal politicians could get reelected.

Yes, the FBI Was Investigating the Trump Campaign When It Spied

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

Representative Gowdy, Senator Rubio, and General Clapper maintain that the Justice Department and the FBI were just doing what we should expect them to do, and that we should applaud them. But this claim is based on the easily refuted fiction that the Justice Department and FBI were not investigating the Trump campaign. The claim also ignores the stubborn fact that, if all the Obama administration had been trying to do was check out a few bad apples with suspicious Russia ties, this could easily have been done by alerting the Trump campaign and asking for its help. Instead, Obama officials made the Trump campaign the subject of a counterintelligence investigation.

Only You Can Get The Red Chinese Out Of America’s Colleges And Universities

Confucius Institutes are Chinese government-sponsored influence operations located at more than 100 American colleges and universities. Now our friends at the National Association of Scholars have made the job of fighting Red Chinese influence operations at America’s colleges and universities even easier by assembling an online “toolkit” that you can access through CHQ.

Red Chinese Penetrating American Colleges And Universities

The Red Chinese are working hard to penetrate America's colleges and universities. Here's how you can fight back if one of your state’s colleges or universities hosts a Confucius institute or if you are an alumnus of such a college or university, or the university or college where your children are studying hosts a Confucius Institute.

Will Little Marco Tank The Tax Reform Package?

The Republican margin in the Senate will shrink to just one vote when Democrat Doug Jones of Alabama is sworn in – possibly as early as December 26. The vote is considered to be so tight that Vice President Pence announced yesterday that he would delay a trip to Israel and Egypt next week in case his vote is needed.

On Iran Trump’s Advisors Offer Dumb And Dumber Options

The inevitable result of continuing to falsely certify that Iran is in compliance with the nuclear weapons deal, and allowing their continued nuclear weapons and missile development cooperation, is an anti-American world dominated by two nuclear-armed rogue states; North Korea and Iran.

Will Trump Cave to McMaster, Tillerson and Mattis on Obamabomb Deal?

Our take is that the “decertify, but stay in strategy” is a scam engineered by National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster and his Obama holdovers on the National Security Council staff to rope-a-dope Trump into leaving the Obamabomb agreement in place until a President who shares the Obama worldview can be elected and inaugurated.

Even UN Says Iran Not Complying With Obama Nuclear Weapons Deal

President Trump must not bow to pressure to falsely certify that Iran is in compliance with the Obama nuclear weapons deal. It is time to withdraw from the Obamabomb deal completely and prepare every available option to stop Iran’s nuclear weapons program.

Conservative National Security Experts Urge President Trump to Withdraw From Obama's Nuclear Deal With Iran

Forty-five conservative national security experts, including CHQ Editor George Rasley, many of whom held senior positions in the nuclear weapons, arms control, nonproliferation and intelligence fields, sent a letter to President Trump endorsing a comprehensive plan, drafted by former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton, to withdraw the United States from the Obama - Iran nuclear weapons deal.

President Trump’s UN Speech vs. Action On Iran And North Korea

It can never be forgotten that there is a direct nexus between the North Korean nuclear weapons and missile programs and the Iranian nuclear weapons and missile programs. If President Trump doesn't back up his speech with action and falsely certifies Iran is in compliance with Obama's nuclear weapons deal it will embolden both North Korea and Iran.

Hillary Clinton’s NSC Running Trump’s Iran Policy

National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster's guidance to President Trump that he should falsely certify that Iran is in compliance with the Obama nuclear deal amounts to looking the other way on Iran’s violations and is little different than what Hillary Clinton would have done if she had won the 2016 election.

Trump’s Quiet Live-Fire Confrontation With Iran

U.S. forces have opened fire on Iranian-backed forces in Syria at least three times since May. Three of the incidents took place at al-Tanf, a remote desert outpost near the point where the Syrian, Iraqi and Jordanian borders meet.

Iran Is Not Complying with the Nuclear Deal

Fred Fleitz and Ambassador Bolton argue it is folly to falsely certify that Iran is in compliance with its obligations under Obama's nuclear deal. It is time for President Trump to fulfill his campaign promise to take America out of Obama’s dangerous Iran nuclear deal.
