If the Equality Act (H.R.5) passes, standing for traditional sexual morality would essentially be outlawed. And it's so bad for women that radical feminists are now joining with conservative Christian women to fight it. We urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Senators and Representative (the toll-free Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) NOW to demand they vote NO on HR 5, the so-called Equality Act.

John Bolton's critics, such as Democrat Sen. Chris Murphy and Democrat Rep. Jim Himes, are merely carrying water for the Ayatollahs when they criticize Bolton as a warmonger. Iran is desperately trying to reverse the effects of the strategy President Trump crafted, and John Bolton is implementing, because the strategy is working, and that makes Bolton a patriot, not a warmonger.

Search efforts didn’t reveal whether any of the 2020 Democrat presidential hopefuls signed on to Alyssa Milano’s call for a nationwide “sex strike” -- but they all side with the abortion-on-demand cause behind it. Just when you thought American politics couldn’t get any screwier…what will it be next week?

Donald Trump is the first President to recognize we are in a war with the Red Chinese, and the battlefield he has chosen is one that is favorable to us. We believe conservatives should support the President’s tariffs because they are among the cheapest and most effective weapons we have to win the war Red China has declared on us.

FLASH UPDATE: Alabama Governor Kay Ivey did not take the six days she had to sign the bill enacting the nation's most principled pro-life legislation. Now that the bill is law, the ACLU and Planned Parenthood say they'll sue, and a court battle is just what the bill's supporters want. Bill author Rep. Terri Collins earlier said that she expects a legal challenge and hopes the U.S. Supreme Court will uphold protections for the unborn.

It’s understandable how Democrat presidential candidates hope to set themselves apart from the others by dissing on President Trump, his record and his policies. But when push comes to shove they’d better provide facts to back up their claims. Bernie Sanders and cohorts aren’t making the grade.

Fired FBI Director James Comey, former CIA Director John Brennan, former FBI General Counsel James Baker and several others are already in the crosshairs. Given U.S. attorney John Durham’s reputation for uncovering and prosecuting FBI corruption in the Bolger case, which one of the Spygate rats is going to flip first?

Cuddle studios advertise they provide nourishment for the soul through laughter, compassionate listening, and above all else, an incredible grounding energy. However, the competition in the nascent cuddling industry is about to become even fiercer with the entry of a new market-maker: The Joe Biden Cuddle Studio franchise operation.

Donald Trump’s shown a remarkable ability to manage his political affairs in such a way to accomplish great things, shore up his base level of support and give himself a very good chance at reelection. How could it all change on a dime? How about being ensnared in another war. Don’t do it, Mr. President.

As Fred Fleitz pointed out, President Trump’s maximum-pressure strategy is working and his decision to move more military assets to the region is the correct one considering Iranian threats to the United States and Israel. However, the question remains, what are we going to do should the long-term strategy succeed, and regime change in Iran becomes a possibility?

The worst thing Democrat presidential candidates can say about one another is, “You’re just like Trump.” So, you know things are getting down to serious policy differences between Senator Cory “Spartacus” Booker (D-NJ) and Senator Elizabeth “Fauxahontas” Warren (D-MA) when he hit her with the "you sound like Trump" insult.

No matter how you slice it, Joe Biden is no “centrist” -- and he’s no “moderate” either -- nor are any of the other major 2020 Democrat contenders. The media tries to wrap these extremists in the most normal terminology possible, but underneath each one lies just another leftist belief system.

    Democrats are clearly making a play for Muslims' votes. Ironically, by allowing an unapologetic anti-Semite to preside over the House of Representatives, they have provided a useful reminder of what their party is about. Its congressional caucus includes a sitting representative who refers to Jews as “termites.” Its leading presidential contender is a well-documented pro-segregationist. It boasts a sitting governor nicknamed “Coonman” pursuant to his affinity for donning blackface. And it goes without saying that they have no realistic agenda for the future. The Democrats need another — very long — stint in the wilderness.

    Never Trump is just another flavor of narcissism, and Burr’s selfishness will shaft the rest of his Senate colleagues most of all in 2020. He doesn’t care – and he expects the Senate collegiality he is ignoring as he hurts his team will protect him from the blistering criticism he deserves from other Republicans. Pity poor Thom Tillis, North Carolina’s other senator. Most of us already suspect he’s squishy. Tillis has to run in 2020 and now Burr’s brought this Schiff-storm down on him. Burr’s behavior was bad enough that Tillis offered tweets in protest, which is a big deal among senators. When Tillis loses, he can thank his good buddy Burr the Blue Falcon.

    The Democratic Party at the moment seems to be in a knockdown, drag-out fight for who can be the greenest of the green and push us forward to a brave new world propelled exclusively by solar and wind energy. Only the strongest (i. e. most slavishly devoted to renewable energy at all costs) will survive. Bernie and AOC are currently beating Joe Biden over the head about this. Poor Joe is frantically shoring up his "environmental" credentials. But those who've tried renewables (like Germany) discovered it doesn't work. I doubt this would mean much to true believers like Bernie and AOC, but the rest of us might pay attention.

    Roman novelist Petronius argues that with too much rapid material progress comes moral regress. His final warning might be especially troubling for the current generation of Western Europeans and Americans. Even as we brag of globalizing the world and enriching the West materially and culturally, we are losing our soul in the process. Getting married, raising families, staying in one place, still working with our hands, and postponing gratification may be seen as boring and out of date. But nearly 2,000 years later, all of that is what still keeps civilization alive.

    The footnote could pose the biggest legal threat to those involved: Former Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe and Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein also signed renewals. Failing to notify federal judges about the conflicting role of a source that the FBI used to authorize intrusive spying methods against a private U.S. citizen just because he volunteered to work for the wrong (in their view) presidential campaign runs afoul of many laws, to say nothing of violating Carter Page’s constitutional rights. For now, it doesn’t appear as though their malfeasance will be relegated to merely a footnote of this historical scandal.

    When women vote, they pay attention to what a candidate is for, not who they’re against. They voted for Trump the first time because they believed, among other things, that their economic and national security had a better chance of success with him, and they were right. Women vote on substance and results, not on their emotions or vague talking points. That won’t change in 2020; they’re going to vote for the person who will keep this country going in the right direction. Women are already voting with their wallets, and if the first quarter of 2019 is any indication, President Trump has earned the confidence of women going into the 2020 election cycle.

    The battle between Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump and is only going to intensify. When Donald Trump surprised the world by winning the 2016 election, the establishment was not going to let go of power without a fight. What’s worse is that they failed to learn anything from the sweeping loss of the House of Representatives in 2018.  McConnell and his weak-kneed colleagues are again failing to understand the mood of the American people. They want a fighter for the policies he promised to deliver. Those not wearing their MAGA hats and stand in the way of those promises are likely to come out on the wrong side of this fight.

  • David French, National Review

    For two generations the Roe decision has distorted American politics. Millions of voters cast their ballots for president primarily to influence that president’s judicial picks, and there is now a majority of justices on the ballot picked by presidents who openly ran on a pro-life platform. Donald Trump would still be the Apprentice host but for his pro-life pledges. Have 20 years of political activism been in vain? Have federal elections polarized to the point of mutual partisan hatred merely to decide whether doctors must have admitting privileges at a local hospital before they kill a child?

  • L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

    The Post is goading the Democrats from the hard left for contempt citations, impeachments and even jail time. These same champions of impeaching and jailing Republicans out of so-called "institutional duty" will coo and wink over every Beto O'Rourke and Kamala Harris who runs against Trump. Back in 1972, Bob Dole had this newspaper pegged when he said, "without benefit of clergy, The Washington Post has set up housekeeping with the McGovern campaign." McGovern became "the beneficiary of the most extensive journalistic rescue-and-salvage operation in American politics." Some things never change.

  • Byron York, Washington Examiner

    Biden stands ahead of the field. Democrats know how old he is, they know he has lost in the past, and they still like him. There's a truism that elections are always about the future, not the past. That's often the case. But what if it isn't this time? A lot of political truisms did not hold up in the 2016 election, which was won by a man with another promise of restoration, to "Make America Great Again." Now, many Democrats seem happy to support a candidate who pledges to take them back a few years. Again, that could change, but for the moment, it shows how many Democrats yearn to return to a time before Trump.

  • Charles Hurt, Washington Times

    Mr. Trump’s escalating tariff war with China is so perfectly in keeping with his 2016 campaign. And Mr. Trump is laughing all the way to the Treasury, counting all the money coming in through his new tariffs. All the free trade “purists” in Washington scoff that this is no way to fund a country. But before the imposition of the federal income tax in 1913, trade tariffs was a primary source of income for the federal government. Sure, the federal government was smaller back then, but isn’t that the point? Anyway, is there anything more insidious and destructive to a free self-governed society than discouraging work?

  • Betsy McCaughey, The American Spectator

    The fact is internet platforms are more than just private companies. They’ve become like public utilities. We are just as dependent on Facebook and Google as on the local electric company. ConEdison can’t deny us service because of our political views. Facebook shouldn’t be allowed to either. Google, Facebook, Twitter, and others, though private sector companies — are the new public square. The biggest threat to a legitimate outcome in 2020 is not foreign interference. It’s left-leaning social media giants tilting the election by silencing viewpoints they don’t like. It’s already happening.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

    Tariffs were the taxes that made America great. They were the taxes relied upon by the first and greatest of our early statesmen, before the coming of the globalists Woodrow Wilson and FDR. Tariffs, to protect manufacturers and jobs, were the Republican Party's path to power and prosperity in the 19th and 20th centuries, before the rise of the Rockefeller Eastern liberal establishment and its embrace of the British-bred heresy of unfettered free trade. A tariff is a tax, but its purpose is not just to raise revenue but to make a nation economically independent of others, and to bring its citizens to rely upon each other rather than foreign entities.

  • Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

    China understands the often blame-itself-first Western mind (and there is such a thing) far better than Westerners themselves do. It assumes that it will not really suffer blanket criticism for its inhuman treatment of religious minorities and dissidents, or its ruthlessness in Africa. Instead, it figures that many will side with it as victims of a Western racism that supposedly prevents Western liberals from appreciating genuine Asian efforts to join the family of nations. China is confident that it now knows the U.S. only too well, and it is mastering the political, economic, cultural, and military methods of nullifying American advantages. And it may be right.

  • John Feehery, The Hill

    For Republicans and President Trump, there are three things they can do to exploit divisions within the fragile Democratic coalition. First, condemn consistently and forcefully the white supremacists among them. The American dream is a universal value, and it is not just opened to the palest among us. Second, defend traditional values as the greatest gateway to economic security. The Democrats are taking us to a brave new world, untried, untested, untethered to reality. Normal Americans don’t buy it. Third, listen to the concerns of black, Hispanic and Asian Americans, value their input and ask for their votes. Don’t make the same mistakes of the progressive elite.
