Democrats’ Cloward-Piven Plan For The Post Office

Frances Fox Piven and the late Richard Cloward, two radical Leftist academics, posited that the way to societal change was to overload and crash the welfare system through four steps. Radicals on the Far Left have since recognized that such a strategy could be applied to elections with favorable results, and we see the implementation of Step 1, “Overload and Break the Election System” being prepared now.

Crisis in New York

Byron York, Washington Examiner

What would the city's leaders rather do? Solve the problems facing millions in a time of soaring crime and stubborn coronavirus? Or try to score points against President Trump? Mayor Bill de Blasio took great pleasure in helping paint a big yellow "Black Lives Matter" mural on 5th Avenue right in front of Trump Tower. Trump hated it, of course. He pointed out that New York was cutting its police budget and painting on streets. Crime rages out of control in the city. "Shootings for the week went up 277 percent, 49 compared to 13 in 2019." "As of July 12, there had been 634 shootings in 2020, compared with 394 in 2019."

New York, New York, It WAS a Wonderful Town

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

New York used to be a place of great knowledge (and self-knowledge) where trends were set and ideas nurtured. Now knee-jerk protest of the most rote and brain dead sort rules the day with statues desecrated and innocent people cursed and assaulted in the streets. It’s still leading the nation, but it’s leading it the wrong way. All those disaffected New Yorkers I talk to… it sounds like rich people’s problems. But it’s more than that. These were good people who wanted the best for everyone. Now they don’t want to be in the city so many of us thought, rightly or wrongly, was the center of the universe.

There’s No Proof Killing The Economy Saves Lives

The evidence is growing that lockdowns did not have the kind of life saving effect that their advocates, such as Dr. Anthony Fauci and Democrat Governor of Virginia Dr. Ralph Northam, claimed they would. We urge CHQ readers and friends to read Grading Our Governors: A Report Card on Reopening States' Economies and if your Governor has not earned an “A” or a “B” to call him or her to demand that the economy of your state be reopened.

Dr. Anthony Fauci Is A Carpenter With Only One Tool

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
In his dire warnings, that not unexpectedly drew praise from Democrats who need unemployment to be at a high level to win this November's election.  Dr. Fauci reminds me of a carpenter with only one tool – which in his case will be a clamp on the economy. President Trump should reject Democrat calls to run the country on Dr. Fauci’s one problem – one tool approach.

GOP Must Stop Pelosi’s $3 Trillion Vote Fraud Power Grab

It’s hard to know where to start explaining just how bad Speaker Pelosi’s next gen bailout bill is – but we will start with the institutionalization of California-style vote fraud.  The toll-free Capitol Switchboard number (1-866-220-0044), we urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Senators and Representative tell them Pelosi’s $3 trillion vote stealing plan is a non-starter and that America needs to get back to work.

How Does COVID-19 Fit In China’s Bio-Weapons Program?

The focus of our preliminary assessment of the Chinese actions was on the economic warfare domain, but that is only one of the seven domains of warfare recognized in Chinese military thinking. But a must-read article by our friend Clare M. Lopez raises a new and even more frightening possibility: The Chinese Communist Party intends to militarily defeat, occupy, and colonize the U.S. and biological weapons figure prominently in their strategy.

Evidence is Building that the Chinese Developed COVID-19 to use as an Economic Weapon Against the United States

If you are a loyal Chinese Communist, you see President Trumps actions, as an Act of War. This American President is looking to stop China’s accent as the world’s leading economic and military power. That cannot stand.  As the virus spread, the Chinese realized that COVID-19 would be an effective economic weapon. Which may be why they cancelled domestic flights in and out of Wuhan, but allowed international flights to continue, hoping the virus would spread to the United States.

Conservative Leaders To GOP: No State and Local Government Bailouts in COVID-19 Relief Legislation

As Congress contemplates a future relief package, the conservative leaders of the Conservative Action Project, led by Chairman Alfred S. Regnery, urge Congress to reject state and local government cash bailouts in favor of policies which give states the flexibility to address the COVID-19 crisis according to the needs of their state – including providing relief from onerous regulations, unfunded federal mandates, and policies which stifle economic growth.

State lacked common sense in nursing homes coronavirus approach

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Executives described frantic efforts to segregate infected patients, but not every facility had the staff or space to do it. Most lacked sufficient protective equipment. The disease has claimed more than 3,500 souls in nursing and rehab centers, or nearly 25 percent of the total known deaths in the state. There is no way to know exactly how many died as a result of the state order, but the number is certainly not zero. The cause and effect relationship is obvious. Meanwhile, Cuomo, after his initial denial of knowledge, quickly became a forceful defender of the policy. Day by day last week, he also began shifting the blame to the nursing homes.

Cuomo, de Blasio, and New York City Owe Trump an Apology

Rabbi Aryeh Spero, American Thinker

We know how Mr. Cuomo feels about the "deplorables", the half of the country who voted for Trump. He has told Second Amendment New Yorkers they don't belong in New York. Yet, he wants the deplorables to pay his bills. He has told those who are pro-life and pro-traditional marriage that their views are anathema and they belong somewhere else, since these are not the values of true New Yorkers. Yet we should pay his bills and we should supply the materials to run his mismanaged state. The elitists believe we should take from our families to financially support them, the "superior" ones, as well as the almost one million illegals invited into New York.

'It's a mess': Legislating failure and chaos with bail reform in New York

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

The obvious immediate simple solution to failed "bail reform" would be to give judges discretion about whom to release into the community. But this legislating of failure and chaos is not new. Somehow for Democrats, there’s no consideration of the impact of their folly on other people. Whether it be Obamacare and the loss of health insurance, with premiums that skyrocketed by thousands of dollars after promising the opposite. We now have the “criminal justice” reform gaslighting the population into supporting something that is actually the complete opposite of what is promised. It’s another day in another city and another state that is controlled completely by Democrats.

Conservatives Kill Tesla’s Federal Subsidy, But Democrat States Continue Elon’s Gravy Train

President Trump heroically told Pelosi that he wouldn't sign the tax extender bill if it included the Tesla subsidy. And the Speaker folded. However, it appears Democrats at the state level will continue Elon Musk’s taxpayer gravy train, because California, Nevada and New York are still subsidizing Tesla to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars.

Census Citizenship Fight Shows Trump Team’s Greatest Weakness

President Trump has an instinctive feel for the inflection points in today’s political and cultural battles, but personnel is policy, and Attorney General Barr is only one man; he needs a cadre of victory-minded conservative lawyers to handle the day-to-day legal work upon which victory or defeat of the Trump agenda hinges.

Principled Conservative Local Elected Officials Fight Law Allowing Illegals To Apply For NY Driver’s Licenses

County Clerks in New York's Rensselaer, Allegany, Erie, and Niagara counties have already said they will not grant a license to anyone in the country illegally, citing conflicts with established federal law and Erie County Comptroller Stefan Mychajliw is offering up his whistleblower hotline for any New York state county clerks concerned about issuing driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants.

What’s The Goal Of New York’s Muslim Community Patrol?

Brooklyn's Muslim Community Patrol is using the same tactics used by Communist and Islamist revolutionaries everywhere: Gain legitimacy by subverting social and political institutions and taking ownership of civic responsibilities where the city lacks the resources or social capital to respond adequately.

A Bad Idea For Ohio And A Terrible Idea For America

No Republican has ever been elected President without Ohio, and Ohio has furnished eight Presidents with Ohio roots – all Republicans. So why the Buckeye State’s Republican-controlled legislature and Governor would want to dilute their state’s Electoral College votes via the Democrat proposal to bypass the Electoral College is a complete mystery to us.

Far Left Anti-Electoral College Plan Building Momentum

Democrats have long opposed the Electoral College because with overwhelming margins of victory in high-population states like California they could dominate future presidential elections based on the popular vote, so they have concocted a plan to try to bypass the constitutional amendment process.

Media Helps Disgraced Democrats Northam, Fairfax and Herring Survive

The networks demand visually compelling images to drive coverage, and the Northam – Fairfax – Herring scandal has no compelling images: No howling mobs outside the Governor’s residence, no dramatic impeachment hearings with graphic testimony about alleged assaults at the hands of Lt. Gov. Fairfax, no college friends describing the blackface rap routine A.G. Herring performed.
