Radical feminists and Far Left Democrats are trying to revive the ERA without going back to Congress and passing a new proposed constitutional amendment. Democrat Rep. Jackie Speier (CA-14) has introduced H.J.Res.38 in an attempt to bypass the biggest constitutional roadblock to the ERA’s revival; its failure to meet the 1982 extended deadline.

With federal spending reaching record levels, the conservative leaders of the Conservative Action Project released the following memo to Congress regarding a rumored deal to break the existing spending caps and drive the deficit even higher.

President Trump’s battle against the Washington elites is just getting started, and if the ruling class gets its way, he’ll not only lose the fight, he’ll be shamed and drummed out of town. Paul Ryan is relieved to be away from it all -- here’s hoping more establishmentarians follow him into retirement.

As is often the case when Trump drops a Twitter bomb on Democrats, middle America seems to agree with the President. The consensus about Rep. Ilhan Omar we found during a foray to our favorite shooting range was “don’t let the screen door hit her in the butt” and the President’s tweets criticizing her were liked over 168,000 times with comments equally as brutal.

The difficulty in learning more about Willem Van Spronsen, the ANTIFA terrorist who attacked the ICE facility in Tacoma, Washington should really surprise no one, given that CNN and other Leftwing media have a record of supporting and even glorifying ANTIFA, including airing a favorable program in which ANTIFA terrorist Willem Van Spronsen appeared.

No matter how much we wish it, the illegal immigration issue isn’t going away. In today’s toxic political environment, the only thing that can be done is to try and plug the enormous gaps in the balky border system -- or to vote in politicians who see reality and crave to do something about it.

On Friday, "protesters" tore down the American flag and raised the Mexican flag over the ICE facility in Aurora, Colorado. It is worth noting that these things only seem to happen in Democrat-controlled areas, and right on cue, on Friday, all of Colorado’s Democratic politicians began echoing open borders talking points.

Rather than erasing Nathan Bedford Forrest from history, Forrest's 1875 speech to the Independent Order of Pole-Bearers Association, a forerunner of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, could serve as a lesson in racial reconciliation.

Tom Steyer’s entrance into the Democrat presidential race will shake things up -- for a while -- but it’s impossible to tell how he will impact the long-term results. Like all Democrat candidates, Steyer lacks a reason for existing -- and they all look like dull pewter compared to solid gold Donald Trump.

The burgeoning civil war between the Far-Left House Progressive Caucus and the Nancy Pelosi-led Democrat Old Guard has suddenly gotten hot, nasty and personal with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez suggesting that Speaker Pelosi is a racist.

We urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Representative (the toll-free Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044), tell your Representative the American military is not the place for Leftwing social engineering. Demand that your Representative vote NO on the amendments analysed in this article from our friends at the Center for Military Readiness.

Honoring the Founding Fathers and the United States flag should be a no-brainer for Americans, but the cultural rot that’s relentlessly advanced by the left is present all around us. At the very least the past deserves respect and educated perspective. Is it really too much to ask today?

    What's concerning to Biden supporters are the signs Biden is not running at full strength, that he's lost a step. Biden isn't without strengths. He is still well ahead in the national polls, as well as early-state polls in Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina. He is still raising a lot of money, although much of it comes from large donors who have hit the legal contribution limit, while other candidates have lots of small donors who can give again and again and still stay under the limit. But Biden, the man who has spent more than four decades in federal office, still has to convince voters he has what it takes for four, and perhaps eight, more years. So far, he hasn't gotten that job done.

    After striking this new deal with our two most important trading partners, the United States needs to lead once again - which means Congress must do its part and pass the USMCA. As I've traveled across the country to discuss the merits of this historic trade deal, I've seen firsthand how important the USMCA is to the American people and to American businesses. Whether it was textile manufacturers in North Carolina, farmers in Minnesota, auto workers in Michigan or energy producers in Texas, they all agreed: The USMCA is a great deal, and Congress needs to act now. Trump has done his job. Now it’s time for the Congress to do its job - and pass the USMCA.

    Do Democrats believe that refighting the racial battles of the 1960s that were thought to have been resolved is a winning hand in 2020? Does Pelosi think that demeaning white America is going to rally white or minority Americans to Democratic banners? The race issue had already arisen in the first debate when Sen. Kamala Harris called out front-runner Joe Biden for befriending segregationist Senate colleagues in the '70s and '80s, and for colluding with them to block court-ordered busing to achieve racial balance in the public schools. Observing the clash between Trump and these women, the rank and file of the Democratic Party are being forced to take sides.

    Many people benefit from the lawbreaking: The Mexican and Central American governments, the Democratic party, employers, ethnic activists, rich progressives, and the illegal border crossers themselves. Almost every party invested in open borders proves utterly selfish. If border crossers were temporarily housed in vacant summer dorms at Stanford, Harvard, or Yale, or were accorded affordable-housing tracts for immigrant communities in the vast open spaces of Portola Valley and the Boulder suburbs, or if immigrant children were sent en masse to language-immersion programs at St. Paul’s, Sidwell Friends, or the Menlo School, then the progressive social-justice warrior would probably go mute.

    Congresspersons do decide “how our government is to be run,” and congressional voices range from dumb to silly to asinine. The four horseladies are all citizens, nevertheless, and all but one of them were born in the U.S.A. They all sound like ingrates, and new citizens of our present day, unlike immigrants in the days of yore, do not always wear their love of country as a badge of gratitude. Mr. Trump let slip an opportunity to let these silly women hang themselves with their ingratitude. But there will be more opportunities between now and November 2020 to keep the president’s Twitter account busy. Nancy Pelosi’s long night of dread is far from over.

    Broadly speaking, Trump’s focus on borders is the linchpin of his presidency and the essence of putting Americans first. His commitment, which has ebbed at times, was always popular with his core supporters, but the appeal is spreading because of the unrelenting surge of illegal crossers and the Dems’ rigid opposition to any ­measure that could stop it. Incredible as it seems, an America without borders appears to be where the left is going, with AOC the latest to say that Homeland Security should be eliminated. Even just the talk of eliminating the security designed after the worst attack in America’s history is the stuff from which landslides are made — for the other party.

    Chakrabarti doesn’t see himself as a mere staffer in some congresswoman’s office. He sees AOC as someone who provides him with a headquarters from which he can “fundamentally change” the Democratic Party. As the magazine’s profile phrases it, “Saikat Chakrabarti isn’t just running her office. He’s guiding a movement.” What does Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez think about all this? It isn’t her job to think. That’s Chakrabarti’s function. Her job is to provide him with a platform to carry out his grandiose political schemes. Whenever you hear AOC say something outrageous, remember that Saikat Chakrabarti is behind the curtain, furiously pushing buttons, spinning dials, and pumping the smoke machine.

    The next generation of Democrats see that their crusty master caste is doing nothing but preserving its own power, and that the oldsters aren’t really down with the revolution. After all, a revolution tosses out the ruling class, and the Dino Dems are quite happy being the ruling class. What to do? The problem Democrats made for themselves by trying to harness the power of hate-fueled idiocy for their own purposes is coming back to bite them right on the Ted Lieu. They’ll have to either amputate the radicals, which they can’t do and survive, or submit to the radicals, which they can’t do and survive. It seems the Democrats can’t live with them, and can’t live without them.

    The Buy American Act requires federal agencies to procure domestic iron, steel, and other materials and products for federal projects like airports, roads, and bridges. Buy American federal procurement rules provide good manufacturing jobs at good wages. No one understands the power of Buy American, Hire American better than President Donald J. Trump. So let us celebrate his latest Buy American action together – knowing full well that there will be more such actions to come for the men and women of America who work with their hands in the factories across this great nation – shining monuments of production that represent the engines of the American economy and the backbone of our defense industrial base.

    The electronic “smart home” promises endless convenience and security. As we’ve had to learn, painfully, from Big Tech companies such as Facebook, consumers aren’t always made fully aware of the potential for abuse or of alternate uses of these new products. Some elected officials are worried. Legislatures in California and Illinois are considering bills that would require makers of smart speakers to get permission from customers before storing recordings. Before we turn our cities and towns over to a network of smart speakers and surveillance cameras, perhaps we should ask the tough and necessary questions about privacy and civil liberties that people in any free society should be worried about.

    No one knows for sure how much unrealized capital gains that would be sold if indexing were adopted as federal tax policy. In the short term, this could mean hundreds of billions of dollars of sales of stock and then tens of billions of dollars of tax revenues collected by the government. History also shows that the capital gains tax — all other things equal — is inversely related to venture capital funding for start-up firms. A low capital gains tax attracts dollars to higher-risk investments. What’s wrong with a nice boost for the women and men who start new companies in America? As an economic matter, this tax change would be a home run crashing off the centerfield score board.

    These days tennis has three potential GOATs jockeying for the honor — Federer, Djokovic, and, of course, Rafael Nadal, whom Fed defeated in the semi-finals. The sport, many acknowledge, is in its golden era, in fact quite obviously so. Arguments are made for Rod Laver and Pete Sampras, but Rod, great and often unbeatable as he was, played in the era of wooden rackets when the sport was considerably less athletic and Pistol Pete never won all four Slams, a disqualifying factor in comparison with the others. I greatly admire and enjoy the play of all three GOATs. I get why people might prefer one to the other but they're all such amazing athletes it's hard to understand why one or the other is despised.

    For years Democrats have claimed they are for strong border security and immigration enforcement while also providing empathy for those who come to the United States illegally. Many complained the 2006 legislation wasn’t enough to properly secure the border with Mexico. Until now, Democrats have written off the accusation of supporting open borders as a Republican talking point. Now, it’s solidly in their platform and has been given on-the-record support by Democrats running for president. The Trump administration is offering real, sustainable solutions to stopping the current crisis at the border. Democrats are looking to exacerbate the situation while derailing American sovereignty and security in the process.

    Google, Facebook, Twitter, they've gotten the special deals from government. They've gotten a special giveaway from government. They are treated unlike anybody else. If they want to keep their special deal, here's the bargain, they have to quit discriminating against conservatives. They ought to abide by the same principles of free speech and the First Amendment that this country embraces that we love and call our own. And I don't think it's too much to ask for these huge tech platforms who've gotten rich off of our information, right, off of our data, off of everything we've given them, they got rich off of it, they got rich off of their special privileges from government.

    Among London's elites today, many see their future in the EU. U.S. trade with Britain is far less than U.S. trade with Canada, Mexico, China or Japan. Britain's economy is a diminished share of the world economy. The British Empire upon which the sun never set, holding a fifth of the world's territory and people, has been history for over half a century. The U.S. population is now five times that of Great Britain. And London is as much a Third World city as it is an English city. Yet, in terms of language, culture, ethnicity, history, geography, America has no more natural ally across the sea. And the unfortunate circumstances of Sir Kim's departure do not cancel out that American interest.
