James and the Giant Impeachment

Julie Kelly, American Greatness

Comey’s sudden recall abilities—including how President Obama made a funny face at him when he told the former president he would brief Trump about the unproven Russian prostitution allegations in the Steele dossier—hopefully won’t be unnoticed by Congress. “It’s remarkable his ability to go back and now say these things,” Biggs told me. “It was difficult for him to remember things when he was questioned by Republicans, but easy for him to remember when questioned by Democrats.”

In Memoriam: Admiral James “Ace” Lyons (USN Ret.)

One of the great moments of clarity Admiral Ace Lyons shared with me, and anyone else who would listen, was this: “You must understand,” said Lyons, “Islam is a totalitarian ideology bent on world domination masquerading as a religion.”

The Perpetual Presidency

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Obama still seeks to convince the country that Trump is “unfit” to be president. After the recent passing of George H. W. Bush, there are now four living ex-presidents: Carter, Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama. There are five living former vice presidents: Walter Mondale, Dan Quayle, Al Gore, Dick Cheney, and Joe Biden. If all ex-presidents and ex-vice presidents were to weigh in nonstop on the current president and present-day politics, the result would be as chaotic as it would be boring.

Mueller’s Gift to Obama

Kimberley Strassel, Wall Street Journal

Mr. Flynn’s being caught up in the probe is related to a glaring potential crime of disclosing classified material, yet Mr. Mueller appears to have undertaken no investigation of that. Is this selective justice, or something worse? Don’t forget Mr. Mueller stacked his team with Democrats, some of whom worked at the highest levels of the Obama administration, including at the time of the possible Flynn unmasking and the first leak.

The Mike Flynn Travesty Comes To An End

General Mike Flynn has been destroyed, not for lying to the FBI, but for telling the truth about the failures of Obama and Hillary Clinton. I have contributed to the Michael T. Flynn Legal Defense Fund, I hope you will too.

Time For Trump To Stop Defending Obama Era Wrongdoing

Just because the presidency changed from President Obama to President Trump, that does not mean that career government employees change. We urge all CHQ readers and friends to visit Sharyl Attkisson’s GoFundMe page and make your most generous contribution to expose the Obama administration’s wrongdoing and to identify the Deep State operatives behind it.

Obama Judges Can’t Save Dem Losers

David Catron, The American Spectator

Obama-appointed federal judges have brazenly rewritten election statutes to favor Democrats challenging the outcomes of races in Florida and Georgia. In both states, however, the apparent losers haven’t benefited from arbitrary changes these partisan jurists made in the laws by which election officials are legally bound. In Florida, the state appears to be headed for a tedious and, for the Nelson campaign, fruitless hand count. The only way to let the exhausted election workers off the hook, not to mention the anxious voters, is for Bill Nelson to concede that he lost.

Trump’s reversal of failed Obama policies has created a booming economy

Andy Puzder, Fox News

Let’s be clear: The economy is booming because President Trump reversed President Obama’s economic policies – not because Trump furthered the Obama policies. President Obama raised taxes on businesses and individuals. He expanded the federal government’s size and power through dramatic increases in the number and scope of federal regulations. He discouraged domestic energy production – for example, refusing to authorize the Keystone XL pipeline and openly attempting to bankrupt the coal industry. The economy is now booming because President Trump took the opposite course.

Everything Is Trump’s Fault Is Fake News At Its Worst

The establishment media continues to be befuddled by their falling market share and polls that say Americans don’t trust them anymore. They need look no further than these three stories from the past week and the false narratives they promote for the answer to their problems of loss of trust and market share.

Fake Bombs -- Fake News

Strange is how the bombs seem to be addressed to people who don’t open their own mail, was this an elaborate plot to kill George Soros’ butler or get the mail room clerk at CNN? At this point in the investigation we don’t know who is responsible or what their motives are – all we can do is wait for law enforcement to do their work and for the evidence to reveal the perpetrator.

Is The Fed Trying To Tank The Trump Economy Before The Midterms?

The Federal Reserve has raised rates recently and expects to do so again soon. Translation for those not aligned with the Wall Street – Washington – Silicon Valley Axis: The Fed wants to stifle your wage growth and job mobility by establishing a so-called neutral level that neither spurs nor slows economic growth.

The Trump Doctrine

President Trump’s remarks at the UN were noteworthy, not so much for their radical departure from the interventionist policies of the two Bush presidents, and their rejection of the weakness and globalism of Obama, but for their return to the principles of George Washington.

This economy is definitely not Obama’s recovery

Stephen Moore, New York Post

One time during the campaign, Larry Kudlow, Steve Miller and I held an impromptu discussion with Trump about economic strategy. Miller summarized the game plan to Trump succinctly: “Donald, just look at all the things that Obama has done on the economy over the past eight years, and then do just the opposite.” Trump has done pretty much just that — which explains why the Trump boom is an everyday reminder of the Obamanomics failure.

Thanks, Obama! He reminds us why Donald Trump is president

David Harsanyi, The Federalist

The former president’s haughty finger-wagging reminds us that the Trump presidency is, in big part, a manifestation of a fracture that was the result of the systematic destruction of process and subversion of political standards by his administration and its allies. Obamacare was just one example. That is why I’m skeptical that the former will help Democrats (whom polls show doing well without him) more than unite conservatives heading into the midterms.

Obama re-emerges to remind voters why they elected Trump

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Mr. Obama’s return to the swamp follows an anonymous opinion article in The New York Times confirming the existence of a “Deep State” aimed at thwarting the will of American voters from inside the White House. Meanwhile, Mr. Trump remains focused on stoking the economy, expanding opportunity for all Americans, slashing government red tape, maximizing freedom for ordinary Americans and putting law-abiding constitutionalists onto the federal courts. Good luck, Mr. Obama. Looks like somebody jumped the Red Heifer.

9/11 Is Far From Over

As long as American politicians refuse to acknowledge that Islamism – not “terrorism” – is the ideology behind 9/11, and as long as our government refuses to battle that ideology, Islamists will continue to plot right here in America, and 9/11 will never be over.

Trump better take advantage of Obama’s underwhelming return

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Trump claimed he fell asleep during Obama’s speech, but now that Obama and Clinton are active again, the president better wake up to seize advantage of the ripe target they present. Releasing the documents is not only a campaign issue. This is fundamentally about transparency and piercing the armor of excessive secrecy that shrouds too much of what the government does in the name of the governed. Secrecy is especially galling when used to protect wrongdoing or simple embarrassment.

When funerals become politics

Victor Davis Hanson, Washington Times

Why are funerals of celebrities and politicians turning into extended and televised political rallies? Partly, the volatile Donald Trump and his frantic political and media critics are locked in a crude, no-holds-barred war against each other — waged everywhere nonstop. Partly, everything in America has become politicized. There is no escape from partisanship — not in movies, sitcoms, comic books, late-night TV, professional sports, social media, the Internet and 24/7 cable news. Not even the dead escape it.

Judge Tells New Citizens to ‘Take A Knee’

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

We are told Trump is a monstrous nativist. In fact, he is simply espousing principles of nationalism both parties at one time shared.If a liberal activist had asked, say, LBJ, or even JFK, to support professional athletes boycotting the American flag, they would have told the activist to go jump in a lake. Now the Dems are the party of flag boycotters in the NFL. It is pitiful, and dangerous. The breakdown in a nationalism common to both parties has given us a judiciary chock-a-block full of subversive hacks like LaShann DeArcy.

Federal Reserve Steps On Trump Economic Boom… Again

President Trump campaigned on policies that would boost the economy to 4 percent – or greater – growth. Now, just when America’s hard-pressed middle-income families are beginning to see the benefits of Trump’s policies, is not the time for the Fed to cool the economy.
