Stop Impeachment Action: Visit Your Representative’s Local Office This Week

Members of Congress will be back in their Districts this week, so it will be a great opportunity for MAGA supporters and anyone who is just plain tired of the insanity in Washington to visit their Representative to tell him or her you agree with President Trump and Rep. Zeldin and you want Democrats to stop the impeachment insanity and get back to addressing the Nation’s real problems.

Fact-Free Impeachment

Even the selective leaks emanating from Schiff’s secret dungeon have not set forth facts that support any claim of criminal conduct by President Trump. What is going on here is the criminalization of policy differences and the creation of a process to legitimize the raw hatred Democrats and the permanent political class have for Donald Trump.

Schiff’s Un-American Impeachment Resolution

Our comparison of how impeachment was handled in the past versus the resolution the Democrats will vote on today making Rep. Adam Schiff the prosecutor, judge, jury and executioner shows this process is a sham. The process is not intended to get to the facts, because the President did nothing wrong, instead, today's vote clarifies that the goal has always been to create a narrative to frame the President.

Call These Vulnerable Democrats, Tell Them To Vote NO On Schiff’s Un-American Impeachment Rules

There are 31 Democrat members of Congress who represent districts that President Trump carried in 2016. We urge CHQ readers and friends to call those Democrats to tell them that, when Election Day 2020 rolls around, their District’s conservative voters will remember if they voted to help Adam Schiff frame President Trump and will hold them accountable at the ballot box.

How The Establishment Media Is Helping Schiff Promote Impeachment

Schiff and the Democrats are counting on the establishment media’s willingness to rely on anonymous sources as a central element of their strategy to get President Trump. Keeping the impeachment inquiry behind closed doors means journalists will gobble-up anonymous leaks; the result is a deluge of hearsay reporting that allows Schiff and the Democrats to shape the narrative and stymie any fact-based defense from President Trump.

The “Enemy Of The People” Media Were On The Wrong Side In The Revolution

It’s not their criticism of Donald Trump that has made many in the establishment media “the enemy of the people.” They earned the title by embracing progressive narratives on lopsided trade policies, open borders, the admission to our country of millions of unvetted “refugees," big government subsidies for special interests and other policies rejected in the 2016 Trump revolution.

White House Correspondents’ Dinner in the Gutter

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

What happened to the WHCA dinner? The evening has become less a celebration of the First Amendment than a celebration of the press themselves, how wonderful they are and how indispensable they are to our democracy. Yet in the eyes of tens of millions of their countrymen, they are seen not as "speaking truth to power," but as using their immense power over American communications to punish their enemies, advance their own agendas, and, today, bring down a president. The press denounces Trump for calling the media "the enemy of the people." But is there any doubt that the mainstream media are, by and large, enemies of Trump and looking to Robert Mueller to solve their problem?

The Hannity Rule

Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator

The new rules of journalism are clear — and the Trump Administration is responding quickly. All practicing journalists in the United States must fill out a required Form for Transparent Journalism and file with the U.S. Office of Journalism that the Trump Administration has now established by executive order within the Department of Justice, retroactive to April 1, 2018. It is known informally as “The Hannity Rule.” Please fill out US Government Form 666 and return to Department of Justice, Office of Journalism.

Publish and be damned

Editors, Washington Examiner

As fake news proliferates, and as even those sites that regard themselves as respectable publish stories with scant or non-existent verification, it becomes increasingly important that other organizations hew to older, higher standards and deliver news that readers can trust.

BuzzFeed Could Be In Legal Trouble For Publishing Trump Doc

Kevin Daley, Daily Caller

Though the prospect of a sitting president bringing a civil suit against a media organization seems far-fetched, Trump aides outside the administration who are implicated in the documents could move forward with their own actions. Michael Cohen, counsel for the Trump Organization and an individual named in the documents, is a likely candidate in this regard.
