We think the only way that this outrage against constitutional government is going to end is if Democrats are made to understand that they are going to pay at the ballot box for trying to overturn the 2016 election, and our friends at the Club for Growth have stepped up to start to make that happen.

Senator Bernie Sanders said a mandatory gun buyback is essentially confiscation, which he says is unconstitutional. However, lest you be fooled into thinking that the old Socialist warhorse has suddenly revealed a newfound affection for private property you’d be wrong, because, while Sen. Sanders may be opposed to confiscation of your firearms, he still wants your money.

By no stretch of the imagination is Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren anything like President Donald Trump. Democrats could only hope their presidential choice would engender the types of political qualities and talents Trump possesses. The harder they search the more they realize it’s a monumental task.

The news that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has decided “his” platform will not accept political advertising for the 2020 election cycle may be the final signal to conservatives that the internet is no longer a space where liberty reigns supreme, but there is one media that the Left doesn't control and can't censor.

The Democrats’ show trial of President Trump begins tomorrow (Wednesday, November 13, 2019) with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Democrat Representative Adam Schiff playing the role of Roland Freisler, the raving Nazi judge in whose court your trial had a 90% chance of ending in either life imprisonment or death.

Democrats haven’t been honest with the American public and they’ve especially misled the people who put them in power in 2018 to unclog the legislative logjam of recent times. Instead of working with Trump and Republicans to pass positive laws, they’ve obstructed and obfuscated at every turn. It will catch up with them… but when?

This year as we recognize our veterans on Veterans Day let us take a look back at the original purposes Americans had in establishing a day commemorating veterans and remind ourselves that it was not war, but its cost, that was being commemorated, and that just maybe President Trump had it right when he said: “Great nations do not fight endless wars.”

A successful businesswoman and mother of a five-year-old Pennsylvania boy is just one of the many Christians to be wrongfully imprisoned in the Middle East. Marsha Lazareva spent 474 days in a Kuwait prison, accused of crimes she did not commit before her conviction was overturned. Now she needs your help to return to America with her son.

Like the old saying suggests, bad news does travel fast. By now, Democrats must’ve received word that President Trump is more than competitive with them in many of the states they’d need to win next year. Trump will be on offense, Democrats on defense. Which candidate will hold the line?

Democrats plan to hold their first public impeachment hearings next week, so CHQ readers and friends better saddle up because it is going to be a wild week in Washington.  The toll-free Capitol Switchboard number (1-866-220-0044) we urge every CHQ reader and friend to call their Representative to demand he or she oppose this assault on constitutional government.

A few weeks ago, the Census Bureau released the 2018 Income and Poverty in the United States report, but you probably didn’t see anything about it because it reported such positive results attributable to President Trump's economic policies. Instead the media focused on a meaningless measure of income "inequality."

It's a bit far-fetched to claim attitudes will return to normal after next year’s election, because “normal” doesn’t really exist anymore. Democrats claim Trump is the problem, but would their paranoid convulsions really be any less severe if a different Republican were in the White House? Not a chance.

    Sanders’ proposal is a surrender to the reality that a leftist regime lacks the conviction or will to stop an endless stream of people from migrating here. Americans troubled over what is happening on the Syrian-Turkish border, or Ukrainian-Crimean border, might take a closer look at what will happen at our own border, and to our own country, if Democrats win the presidency and throw open the doors to unrestricted immigration. Politically, so massive a migration of peoples who, once they become citizens, vote 70%-90% Democratic means an end of the GOP as a truly national party. If we open the borders, how do we stop the drugs from coming in? How do we stop the cartels?

  • Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness

    The furor that Trump has incurred, and the radical antithesis to his agenda and first term, have redefined the looming election. It is becoming a stark choice between a revolutionary future versus American traditionalism. The personality quirks of a Trump or an Elizabeth Warren or a Bernie Sanders will become mostly irrelevant given the existential choice between two quite antithetical ideas of future America. In 2020 we will witness the penultimate manifestation of what radical progressivism has in store for us all—and the furious, often desperate, and unfettered pushback against it. The choice between the two sides in the 2020 election is that simple.

  • William Murchison, The American Spectator

    The task the Democrats have assigned themselves well-nigh impossible. So what’s the point? What’s the good to be achieved? And if no conspicuous good is to be achieved, why are we doing this? What are we trying to do here? Is this show worth the candle, when the House, whether joined by the Senate or not, could simply vote to censure the president’s Ukrainian foray? Impeachment is a proceeding so disproportionate to the imputed offense that these little congressional Ahabs, bearing down in a little boat upon the great orange whale, bring to mind an ancient observation: Those whom the gods would destroy, they first make just a little bit screwy, don’t you know?

    Bloomberg is the kind of pursed-lipped, uptight scold the Normals are saluting with a single digit. You get the distinct impression that he spends a lot of his time being very, very upset that we are choosing to live our lives without his approval, and that it grates on him. Electing him president would be like electing your kindergarten teacher POTUS, if your kindergarten teacher was tiny, 77, and jetted away for every weekend to Bermuda in her Gulfstream after lecturing you on how you can’t have chocolate because of global warming. His ego trip is going to cause amazing, glorious disruption within the Democratic race and help Donald Trump immeasurably.

  • Charles Hurt, Washington Times

    The only intelligent thing about Mr. Bloomberg running for the Democratic nomination for the presidency is what it says about the present crop of Democrats running for the nomination. They’re a hopeless bunch of losers who would rather destroy America than lose another election to President Trump. And the only reason his candidacy is being pushed at the moment is that supposed Democrat “front-runner” Joseph R. Biden has defecated in his own bed and his son has wound up being perhaps the only criminal actor in the Democrats’ whole Ukraine impeachment crusade. Please, can you imagine Little Michael Bloomberg filling an arena in Milwaukee with thousands and thousands of screaming fans?

    A recent survey conducted by the Victims of Communism and polled by YouGov, a research and data firm, found that 70% of millennials are likely to vote socialist and that one in three millennials saw communism as "favorable." Today's leftists, socialists and progressives would bristle at the suggestion that their agenda differs little from that of past tyrants. They should keep in mind that the origins of the unspeakable horrors of Nazism, Stalinism and Maoism did not begin in the '20s, '30s and '40s. Those horrors were simply the result of a long evolution of ideas leading to a consolidation of power in the central government in the quest for "social justice."

    Schiff knows that if Republicans question the whistleblower under oath what remains of his party’s credibility will be shot. All this began when the so-called whistleblower was coached by Adam Schiff’s Intel Committee concerning how best to deploy his complaint. Then Nancy Pelosi justified the House impeachment inquiry by repeatedly citing that complaint. Chairman Schiff accused Trump administration officials of refusing to allow the whistleblower to testify. But when the Republicans requested his testimony, Schiff refused to permit it. He now tells us he doesn’t need the whistleblower. This really does seem a lot like a grainy old movie with bad lines and worse acting.

    In current antitrust law, a small degree of market power (which is not the same as monopoly power) is very common and understood not to warrant antitrust intervention. But even a trivial skewing of the marketplace of ideas by one of the giant tech information companies could have made the difference between “President Trump” and “President Clinton.” It’s time to revisit antitrust law. People who believe in competition, especially in the marketplace of ideas, shouldn’t let tech CEOs stop the clock there. Like Oliver Wendell Holmes (who switched his opinion on free speech rights in the landmark case of Abrams v. United States), we should be willing to change our minds.

    Vindman testified repeatedly that he "thought it was wrong" for Trump to bring up the 2016 election. The Vindman transcript also showed a witness whose testimony was filled with opinion, with impressions, who had little new to offer, who withheld important information from the committee, who was steeped in a bureaucracy that has often been hostile to the president, and whose lawyer, presumably with Vindman's approval, expressed unmistakable disdain, verging on contempt, for members of Congress who asked inconvenient questions. In short, Vindman's testimony was not the slam-dunk hit Democrats portrayed it to be. How it will play when Vindman goes before the world in a public impeachment hearing?

  • Stephen Moore, Washington Times

    The flat family income between 1999 and 2016 is exactly what makes the Trump surge in incomes so impressive. Yes, it is true, incomes barely budged during the Bush and Obama years — up less than $1,200. Does Mr. Trump get the blame for that lousy record too? If The Post and others in the liberal media really cared about middle-class families, they would be cheering these gains for scores of millions of households. But the left hates Mr. Trump, and so they feverishly root against the economy. It’s not that these facts aren’t true. It is that the left doesn’t want the good news to be true. The grand irony of all of this is these are the people who assign Trump Pinochhio noses.

    According to the Washington Post's Paul Waldman, Matt Bevin’s (completely legal) request to re-canvass the Kentucky election portends an unwillingness by the GOP to accept the results the democratic process. Talk about projection. Historically speaking, Republicans probably need to win 40+ states for Democrats to accept election results without controversy. John Kerry, and surely he’s not alone, still believes that George W. Bush stole Ohio in 2004 with his sentient Diebold machines. Prominent Democrats believe Bush stole the Florida in 2000 (a contest we know W. indisputably won.) Al Gore, you may remember, refused to concede. It’s different when Democrats do it.

    Rep. Katie Hill resigned after only 10 months on the job. On her way out, Hill was honored by the media elites for giving a lectern-pounding farewell address in which she claimed she was victimized by a sexist double standard. This is downright bizarre. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi insisted Hill was not forced out of office by her party and decried Hill's "humiliation by ... cyber exploitation." Pelosi added that she has warned her children and grandchildren that "appearances" like Hill's "can come back to haunt you if they are taken out of context." But the only people wrenching Hill's reckless alleged sexual behavior with staff members out of context are liberals.

    This whole show trial would just be an amusing farce in the farcical land of D.C. politics were it not for one thing—it just could (not likely, but could) be successful. And if it is, that's the end of our country as we know it. Half of our citizens will feel completely disenfranchised. Where it will go from there is anybody's guess. What will be interesting in the coming days is who Torquemada Jr. (aka Schiff) will allow to testify. It's obviously ix-nay on the whistleblower-way, but watch the results for Nellie Ohr and Alexandra Chalupa. If they don't let them testify, that means they're terrified. And they should be. What a country we live in.

  • David Catron, The American Spectator

    In the end, Schiff's kind of skullduggery won’t fly. The American people place a very high value on fairness, and they aren’t going to allow the president of the United States to be brought down by corrupt politicians and bellyaching bureaucrats. The voters want to make the call themselves. The Monmouth poll noted above captures the mood of the electorate perfectly: “Most Americans (59%) agree with the statement that ‘if you want Trump out of office, it makes more sense to focus on next year’s election rather than go through an impeachment process now.’ ” Unlike Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats, the voters know the difference between Schiff and Shinola.

    Three months out from the decisive early contests of Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina, the Democrat party is going into the semifinals of its contest for a leader and future president without a single person of color in the final four. Moreover, the three white males are denigrating and piling on the woman who is the front-runner with attacks on her personality. When one looks at the approval-disapproval rating of the president, re-election appears problematic. When one looks at the Democrats' agenda and field of candidates, the odds of Trump's re-election seem a good deal better. This thing is by no means over.
