Black Lives Matter

Dr. James Dobson: America's Civil Wars - Then And Now (Part 1 of 3)

Dr. James Dobson says the choices we make on November 3rd will send this nation down one of two dramatically different paths. The wrong decision will be catastrophic. Dr. Dobson begins by quoting Newt Gingrich, who said recently that the next election will be "the most important since 1860." He also warned that if we appease or ignore the violence and anarchy occurring in the streets, it might be the end of civilization as we have known it. Those are sobering words coming from a man who has stood at the pinnacle of national power.

Liberal media blurs cost of ongoing Black Lives Matter/Antifa race riots

Robert Knight, Washington Times

Apart from lots of happy stories depicting the whole country kneeling to the BLM’s anti-White, Marxist demands, you won’t see much about the real costs. Between May 25 and June 8, at least 17 people were killed in what the media call “unrest.” More than 700 law enforcers were injured. Property damage has run into the billions, and we’re not done yet. Portland continues to simmer, and cities explode nightly, like Richmond this past week. Just because the media have amnesia, we shouldn’t forget the real costs of the Democrats’ experiment in street justice. Or sacrifices of the thin blue line.

The goals of Black Lives Matter and its radical ideology

Cal Thomas, Washington Times

How many mainstream reporters have bothered to delve into the background and founding principles of the rapidly spreading Black Lives Matter organization to which even White CEOs are contributing gobs of money in what appears to be an attempt to protect themselves and their businesses from any potential charge of racism? Black Lives Matter’s foundational principles and goals seem closer to those of China and the former Soviet Union. If more people understood that, they might wake up and realize that the United States, as Ronald Reagan used to say, is only one generation from losing it all.

Silence and Betrayals of GOP Senate Leaders Killing America

The silence of Republican leaders has led Democratic leaders to think they’re winning the battle over the future of America. And why shouldn’t the Democrats think they can win? For the past three years the GOP’s congressional leaders hid whenever any part of Donald Trump’s conservative – populist MAGA agenda came up, avoiding any showdown with the Democrats over everything from the Wall to the revolution going on in the streets of Democrat-controlled cities.

How Senator Cory Gardner Can Revive His Flagging Campaign

Here’s our advice to Senator Gardner: Fire your Mitch McConnell endorsed consultants and get out on the campaign trail with state Rep. Patrick Neville. Go to every town in Colorado with a radio station and every city with a TV station and call a rally to “Back the Blue,” and make it clear that you will tolerate no violence from ANTIFA or BLM thugs. Tell the law-abiding citizens and voters of Colorado you stand for law and order against Hickenlooper and the Far Left New Democrats that are behind his campaign.

How To Lose Your Majority - Message To Mitch McConnell And Senate GOP

We have a simple explanation of the problem and a simple answer that will guarantee a Republican majority in the Senate: Your problem is you have spent that past three years betraying the GOP base that elected Donald Trump President, so stop betraying conservatives, get off your ass and fight for the MAGA agenda and you will win. Keep doing what you are doing, and you will lose.

The Faustian Bargains of the Woke NBA

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

The Chinese demand a Faustian bargain from all they make rich in the short term. We are in a new COVID-19 world, where no one believes that China will democratize once it gets rich enough, and China itself has mostly given up on hiding its own agendas. So, given the known Chinese blueprint of foreign investment, assume that once China masters the mechanics and public relations of the sport, the contours of its franchising, and the intricacies of its branding and merchandising, its 1.4 billion people may prefer their own Chinese players, Chinese coaches, Chinese owners — and all of their own newfound Chinese profits.

School Board May Be Your Most Important Election

This year school board elections are more important than ever. The first issue many school boards must address this year is whether and how to reopen schools – and make no mistake this decision by a minor elected body will have vast economic and social impact on your community. Then there’s another issue of immediate import your local school board must also address – keeping your local  schools free from Leftwing propaganda in the form of the 1619 Project and the Black Lives Matter at School curricula.

Year Zero

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Are there now three Americas? One of white guilt and penance, one of black anger and victimization, and another seething in silence as they see their 244 years of history written off as something worse than the pasts of Somalia, Peru, Iran, or Serbia. There are now two realities — beyond two national anthems, beyond black and white dorms, black and white segregated safe spaces on campus, and beyond now segregated black and white history, language, philosophy, and science and math. The counterrevolution will be easy to spot. If sowing the wind has been getting ugly, reaping the whirlwind will be more so.

The Purity Spiral Turns, as Courage Goes Missing

Roger Kimball, The Epoch Times

Purity spirals end only when confronted and exposed. Efforts at conciliation, like the habit of appeasement, serves to increase their ferocity and their velocity. A statue of Teddy Roosevelt or Abraham Lincoln has nothing to do with the death of the unfortunate George Floyd, neither, for that matter, do statues of Robert E. Lee or Andrew Jackson. An innocuous comment by a eminent art historian about a figure from the past whose actions helped to preserve the material deposit of civilization is not “disgusting,” it is salubrious and illuminating. To pretend otherwise is to play into the hands of the zealots.

Black Lives Don’t Matter to Black Lives Matter

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

BLM doesn’t seem to care about violence done to blacks if police are not involved, even though black on black is by many multiples more lethal and more common, resulting in exponentially more black casualties. BLM’s primary interest appears to be smashing the state, creating revolution with their Antifa pals in order to take power themselves. The vast majority of black children are now born out of wedlock to single-parent homes, the world stacked against them before they can start. That’s something BLM should want to do something about if real black lives actually mattered to Black Lives Matter.

Blue’s not black to the left

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Black Lives Matter has a new message, placing race above all else and in opposition to the moral and legal foundations of our society. Black police officers who are not authentically black, according to BLM, because they are supposedly more loyal to the police than to their race. Listen to those pulling down statues and engaging in other “cancel culture” actions and it’s clear that race is the crucial, animating factor, even though most of the activists are young whites. They're abandoning reform in favor of a mindless revolution that threatens to turn back the clock on equality and racial progress.

Democrats Run Cities Where Cops Kill Blacks

A group, led by some of America's most prominent African-American conservatives, has addressed a letter to President Trump and Congress pointing out that in the wake of George Floyd’s unjustified death, well-organized agitators and Democrat politicians have weaponized Mr. Floyd’s death to demonize law enforcement, President Trump, and conservatives in general, by conveniently hiding the fact that the Minneapolis city council and mayor—along with the district’s congresswoman, both senators, and the Minnesota governor—are all Democrats with a decidedly anti-American agenda.

Why Can’t Democrats Run A Competent Police Force?

Democrat-run big cities -- New York, Baltimore, Chicago, and Minneapolis are notable cases -- that continue to struggle with relations between the police and minority communities; in some cases, those relations have even regressed. The media rarely acknowledge this monumental failing of the Democratic Party, and it seems to evoke little self-reflection among urban Democrats themselves, because it is much easier to blame Donald Trump and imaginary systemic racism than it is to train and manage a competent police force.

Conservative Leaders: Justice, Not Chaos

Over 100 conservative leaders representing millions of grassroots conservatives nationwide have released a “memo to the movement” decrying the violence in the wake of the killing of George Floyd and urging state, local and national authorities to respect peaceful protests while acting with alacrity to restore law and order when individuals and organizations turn to violence and use Mr. Floyd’s death to pursue an agenda of social conflict and destruction.

Democrat Campaign To Delegitimize 2020 Election Intensifies

"The only way Trump can win is if he cheats" and "the military will have to pry him out of the White House" are two key information warfare themes that Democrats and their Far Left allies have been pushing hard since the election season started in earnest and they see them as key elements of their strategy to get the 2020 election into what we call “the margin of chaos.”

Nigel Farage Is Right, Of Course BLM Is Like The Taliban

Nigel Farage, the British patriot behind the oft-postponed British exit from the European Union, had his microphone cut during an appearance on Good Morning Britain and was cut loose from his LBC Radio Show with "immediate effect" amid anger over comments he made comparing Black Lives Matter (BLM) to the Taliban, but as we explain in this article, Mr. Farage is right.

Lessons From Antifa’s Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone

Communist thugs of Antifa have declared a six-block area of Seattle to be “autonomous” with signs on barricades that read: “You are now leaving the USA.”  Those not infected with Leftwing insanity should recognize this occupation for what it is – another probing movement in the counter-state’s campaign to delegitimize the government of the United States of America.

Ted Cruz: Democrat calls to defund the police are asinine

Senator Ted Cruz was right, “Democrats’ calls to defund or disband the police are asinine and would end up killing many Americans if enacted.” We urge CHQ readers and friends to call their local city officials to demand that they increase their community’s law enforcement budget and that their local leaders recognize that calls to defund the police are another step in the long march to fundamentally change America into a socialist oligarchy.

It’s Not A Protest, It’s Not A Riot, It’s A Revolution (Conclusion)

The killing of Mr. Floyd was a tragedy, but the spring-loaded narratives that followed were pre-packaged and are aimed at delegitimizing law enforcement in advance of a period of pre-election day violence. Looking at the information presented in "It’s Not A Protest, It’s Not A Riot, It’s A Revolution" in its entirety, the riots and street violence now occurring were foreseeable, were foreseen, and, as is already occurring, designed to go national.
