It is important to remember that the patriots who fought our Revolution didn’t fight for the Constitution; they fought for the Declaration of Independence and a unique “pre-Constitution” revolutionary vision of individual liberty. Today, the liberty of Americans is once again threatened, this time by those who profess the ideology of the new Democrat Party – whose ideas and policies are almost the polar opposite of those expressed in the Declaration of Independence.

The riots and demonstrations are about revolution, not white racism or justice for law-abiding blacks or real history. As with the Maoist Red Guards in China’s Cultural Revolution, it is about destroying the “four olds” in America–old customs, old culture, old habits, and old ideas. So let’s call this fight what it really is—a Maoist-style revolution—and then let Americans take sides, just as they did in 1776. I know which side I’m on.

In normal times, Independence Day was something all Americans would honor if not celebrate. But as has been demonstrated a lot recently, there are many in this country who seek to trash and remove the past. We can’t allow them. The proponents of Black Lives Matter are nothing like the Founding Fathers. Now more than ever, we recognize it.

If Trump allows the campaign to be all about him – if he keeps sucking the oxygen out of all his winning issues, and allowing the Democrats’ frightening agenda to be obscured in the fog of his outsized personality, he’s going to take the House and the Senate, and the future of constitutional liberty down with him. Donald Trump the America First patriot cannot allow himself to be remembered by history as Donald Trump the egotist who put nihilistic Socialist revolutionaries in charge of the greatest nation on earth.

We urge CHQ readers and friends to call the White House (202-456-1111) to demand that the President use his executive authority to prohibit companies owned or controlled by the Chinese Communist Party, the Red Chinese government, the People’s Liberation Army of China and other Chinese military and intelligence entities from accessing U.S. capital markets.

Even if times are changing, Democrats in Congress don’t seem to alter their approaches any. If there’s a way to clog up the system with additional bureaucracy and litigation, they’ll find it. The liberal party rejected Senator Tim Scott’s police reform bill purely due to political reasons -- and because the South Carolinian is an African-American Republican. Shameful.

America’s worst mayor, New York’s Bill de Blasio, and America’s most hypocritical governor, New York’s Andrew Cuomo, got a spanking from Judge Gary Sharpe sitting in the United States District Court for the Northern District of New York, which recently  granted a group of religious plaintiffs a preliminary injunction enjoining de Blasio, Cuomo and their vile minions from prohibiting certain religious gatherings.

“The ultimate goal of the task force will be not only to enable prosecutions of extremists who engage in violence, but to understand these groups well enough that we can stop such violence before it occurs and ultimately eliminate it as a threat to public safety and the rule of law,” Attorney General Bill Barr wrote in a recent memo to to all the Justice Department’s law enforcement components and U.S. attorneys.

News of a dramatic increase in COVID-19 cases last week was seemingly greeted with relief by elements of the media. If true, the naysayers argue, the economy can’t be reopened, people will still be out of work and government will need to act -- again -- to take care of the unemployed. Then there’s the alternative, which is full speed ahead. Which way should we go?

It appears to us that given the rapidity with which he was charged and convicted in the media Garrett Rolfe IS being railroaded. And it appears that thousands of people agree, because they are stepping up to provide support to Garrett Rolfe’s legal defense through the Georgia Law Enforcement Organization.

While the establishment media have studiously ignored reporting the story, the social media accounts of Middle East and national security experts have been abuzz with questions and information on the huge explosion or explosions that recently rocked a site believed to house one of Iran’s nuclear weapons facilities – the facilities that Obama and the Iranians claimed do not exist.

Having Democrats blaming conservative media figures for the way things are in the U.S. today isn’t new. Bill Clinton all-but pinned 1995’s Oklahoma City bombing on his conservative critics. Then Hillary coined it “The vast rightwing conspiracy.” President Trump is no fan of the “fake news” media either. The battle for the news narrative will continue.

    Tucker Carlson said Republican officeholders are not working hard enough for the American people and, at a moment like this, that's a severe and dangerous problem in a monologue delivered on his FOX News program. "Republican voters should demand three things from their candidates: First is vigorous defense of total equality under the law. Second, they must defend our freedom of speech. And finally, the GOP exists to the serve the interests of normal people. Can Republican politicians change their party? Sure. We just have to make them. They won’t lead. We know that now. That means we have to. They will follow."

    Democrat nominee Joe Biden is tragically suffering a mental eclipse and sliding away at a geometric rate. Understandably, his handlers have kept him out of sight. He stays off the campaign trail on the pretext of the virus and his age-related susceptibility to COVID-19 morbidity. In the chaos of July, Biden’s handlers have been acclaimed geniuses for anesthetizing him. But in the different season of October, he may finally be forced out from his lockdown, in the wild manner that soon-to-be looters and arsonists at last emerged from quarantine in June — pent-up, angry, incoherent, and self-destructive.

  • Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

    We are seeing Mr. Trump emerge, once again, as the right man at the right time. The president is illustrating that law and order is of paramount importance and is at the foundation of everything else. We know he understands the policy issues on which he was elected, but now it is more important than ever to show the American people that he’s acting to secure this nation, as the legacy media is working overtime to convince us that chaos reigns. Why? Because, like abusers and batterers everywhere, they tell you if you just surrender, they’ll stop hurting you. That’s a lie, and it will be rejected in November.

  • Michael Goodwin, New York Post

    New York has had its share of corrupt and incompetent mayors, but never has it had both of those and also a lazy bum. These are extraordinary times and there is a real risk de Blasio is digging the city’s grave. With mobs assaulting the foundations of our republic and terrifying otherwise-sensible people into silence or assent, the police are declared Public Enemy No. 1 — and de Blasio joins the Amen corner. He no longer defends the NYPD, and one by one, the anti-crime programs that made New York miraculously safe are being thrown out with the trash. The collapse is happening under the worst mayor ever.

  • Editors, Washington Examiner

    Roberts noted in his decision that the doctrine of “stare decisis” — literally Latin for “to stand by things decided” — is intended to give litigants and others certainty about how the law is interpreted. Without it, one could imagine a legal environment in which judges become so arbitrary that it is impossible to comply with the law. But equally dangerous is a legal environment in which flat-out bad decisions are simply allowed to stand, no matter what, just because they were decided the wrong way first. Roberts, sadly, has left his nation in a state of blind obedience to just such a bad ruling.

  • Tim Graham, CNS News

    Everything about the Tuesday press conference with Democrat Joe Biden underlines how the snarling, vicious watchdogs of the Trump administration will transform into cuddly little lapdogs if Biden is elected president. Biden began with a 20-minute speech, and CNN and MSNBC ran the whole speech live. These networks often refuse to air White House press briefings and try not to give free air time to President Donald Trump. The elite media pretend it's preposterous that there's a vast difference between their treatment of Republicans and Democrats. They need to watch this puffball press conference again.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

    Woodrow Wilson’s support of segregation was a matter of record in his own time and is a subject about which every biographer and historian of that period has been aware. When did Princeton discover that this Southern-born president, the most famous son in the school’s history, like so many of his presidential predecessors, did not believe in integration? If Washington D.C. ever becomes a state surrounding the Capitol, Mall, White House and major monuments, look for the sweeping destruction of statues and monuments and a changing of the names of streets, parks and circles. Where does the madness end?

  • Scott McKay, The American Spectator

    What we’ve had so far is not quite real civil unrest. So far the action has been one-sided, with Marxist revolutionary agitators attempting to provoke a response and getting little in return, which is why Mr. and Mrs. McCloskey brandishing shootin’ irons at the mob generated so much attention. It will turn American cities into Baghdad. It’s time for law enforcement to rediscover its teeth, and for the pathologically feckless, if not treacherously hostile, urban Democrat leadership, to stop persecuting their own protectors. Or if they won’t, it’s time for states and the federal government to do the job.

  • Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

    Systemic liberalism is the real poison in America’s veins. Structural liberalism is beginning to reflect America. Liberals want an America of terrified conformity, of eternal grievance and hate, where the rights of individuals are crushed if they prove to be an obstacle to liberal rule. Who wants to punish people for their speech? Liberals. Who wants to discriminate among people based on their race? Liberals. And who wants this hate to continue because they see harnessing it as their means to take perpetual power? Liberals. It’s past time to smash systemic liberalism. Get ready to be the backlash.

  • Tim Graham, CNS News

    The radicals behind this movement don't just tweet about abolishing the police. They also talk about abolishing prisons. If violence is the problem, how is emptying prisons the solution? What next? Abolish the courts? These activists seem to think only police officers commit the kind of violence worth protesting. Conversation about black-on-black crime is treated like a distraction employed by racists. One has to wonder if this is really the kind of stance people will support at reelection time. But it seems the pendulum only swings further to the left. Democrats have gotten reelected for decades to run big cities.

  • Charles Hurt, Washington Times

    While you cannot find a single rioter cheering on Mr. Biden’s candidacy (because nobody cares about it), there are plenty of counter-protesters out there who do care passionately about Mr. Trump and they are proud to show that support. This is how Mr. Trump winds up retweeting an insanely stupid video of some old guy in a golf cart shouting “white power” in response to a bunch of noisy, obnoxious protesters. All that really matters is that those persuadable voters in the middle who just want it all to stop saw Mr. Trump escalating the caustic mayhem by applauding one of his supporters for saying something stupid.

  • Stephen Moore, The Epoch Times

    New cases are rising in red states that have opened up for business faster than in blue states that have remained mostly closed. And we will have to see how this pans out. But the deaths, especially in nursing homes, remain much higher in the blue states. Moreover, studies are now finding that the adverse health effects from the lockdown (suicide, delayed treatments for cancer and heart problems, depression, spousal and child abuse, alcoholism, and drug overdoses, to name a few) could easily match the saved lives from lockdowns. These “lockdown deaths” are far more prevalent in blue states that shut down.

  • Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness

    If the disaffected translate their growing fury into voting for someone perceived as answering calmly and forcefully back, protecting them, and punishing those who so brazenly flaunt the law and humiliate any who call them to account, then Trump will be reelected and more easily than our experts can imagine. The choice is still Trump’s: stay calm, speak softly, and carry a club, while promising for the future to protect the vulnerable of all races and classes, and restore a great nation; or talk loudly carrying a twig while whining about unfair personal treatment of the past. It's Victory vs. Socialism.

  • Daniel J. Flynn, The American Spectator

    America’s original progressives went by a more honest name: puritans. Their moral crusades, witch hunts, and cruel banishments of Anne Hutchinson, William Blackstone, and others who believed differently provide a neat template for what we currently witness nearly four centuries later. Singers wear their scarlet letters and comedians stand in the pillory. A Cotton Mather lives in our heads censoring our thoughts expressed in our speech. Those puritans smashed stained glass and statues, and these ones do, too. In this sense, progressives never progress. How can one learn from mistakes who never makes them?

  • J. Christian Adams, PJ Media

    The mob is using race and America’s long earnest struggle to rise above as a justification to tear down and replace institutions that have nothing to do with what happened to George Floyd. The answer is simple. Appeal to the goodness of America if you want to improve America. Do what generations of Americans have done before, reject the exaltation of race. Civil rights start with treating people like they have a right to be treated. It means treating everyone with the dignity they deserve, regardless of race. The more the mob, and those the mob has turned into cowards, exalt race, the worse it is going to get.
