We urge CHQ readers and friends to contact their Senators and Representatives today to tell them not to waste the Lame Duck. This is the last opportunity Republicans have to fund the Wall before radical Far-Left Democrats takeover the House and impose gridlock on President Trump’s conservative agenda. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) call TODAY.

Democrats have convinced themselves that Donald Trump’s election was fraud, not a revolution against the Leftwing establishment consensus in Washington. So, while the narrative has shifted from Russian collusion to real or imagined campaign finance violations, the underlying concept that Donald Trump was “fraudulently” elected President hasn’t shifted at all.

It's unfortunate that one bad apple like Jeff Flake can spoil the whole bunch (in this case, President Trump’s judicial nominees). Even worse, there are tons of equally sour fruits in the nation’s capital, begging for a swamp draining mission of epic proportions. Is Trump up to the task?

The most important job President Trump’s next Chief of Staff has is not making the trains run on time – it is making the trains deliver on President Trump’s agenda to ensure his reelection. Priebus and Kelly both failed in that important part of the job, Mark Meadows is the only name that has surfaced who can deliver on it in the face of a hostile Nancy Pelosi-led Congress.

It seems that James Comey and Hillary Clinton are infected with the same memory loss virus that affects so many of the elite university graduates who make up DC’s political class, leading one to conclude it is not memories, but ethics and integrity that they are missing.

The list of Donald Trump’s former staffers is growing by the day and his swampy establishment enemies swear the body count is a sign of instability and danger. But the sun will rise tomorrow and the administration forges on, another non-boring day in the life of the Trump presidency.

We expect to read many articles in the establishment media about Paul Ryan and tax cuts as his “legacy” as Speaker, but we doubt anyone in the establishment media will write about Ryan’s real legacy – destroying American sovereignty by killing the best chance to pass a strong immigration reform bill and build the wall on our southern border.

U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit by a 2-1 margin, said the New Jersey law limiting magazines to 10 rounds does not violate the Second Amendment, the Fifth Amendment’s Takings Clause or the Fourteenth Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause. Meaning New Jersey gun owners must surrender, dispose of or send out of state their commonly held and legally purchased magazines.

President Trump could face a struggling economy in 2020, but there are ways to ensure things run smoothly when the moment arrives. Keeping interest rates low, encouraging clean natural gas production and repealing federal control of the legal drinking age might help the GOP.

The Conservative Action Project yesterday released a Memo for the Movement entitled "America’s National Sovereignty Threatened: Congress must fund a Wall that secures our Southern Border." We urge all CHQ readers and friends to call Congress to demand the Wall be funded. and the border secured. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) call TODAY.

General Mike Flynn has been destroyed, not for lying to the FBI, but for telling the truth about the failures of Obama and Hillary Clinton. I have contributed to the Michael T. Flynn Legal Defense Fund, I hope you will too.

There’s little doubt cultural changes in the past half century have made a significant difference in all of our lives. Some changes are good, others not so much. But time doesn’t wait and it’s in everyone’s best interest to accept that tomorrow will not look like today. For many, it’s a blessing.

    Ronald Reagan's treaty that banned all U.S. and Soviet nuclear missiles with a range between 310 and 3,400 miles faces collapse. And President Trump's initiative to bring about a nuclear-free North Korea appears in peril. Yet, for the next two years, we will be preoccupied with whether paying hush money to Stormy Daniels justifies removing a president, and exactly when Michael Cohen stopped talking to the Russians about his boss building a Trump Tower in Moscow. We are an unserious nation, engaged in trivial pursuits, in a deadly serious world.

    In Comey’s book, Flynn’s fibbing to the FBI about a non-criminal chat with a foreign counterpart is very, very grave. But Comey considers it no big deal that he lied and called a FISA warrant “verified” when it manifestly wasn’t — a FISA warrant that turned Carter Page’s life upside down. The government tried to entrap him, shadowed him for a year or so, and vacuumed up his every communication — all on the basis of an uncorroborated “dossier” from a political opponent! And Comey to this day casts it all as a noble mistake.His egotism is only eclipsed by his criminal carelessness and incompetence.

    The outgoing chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus on Monday made it clear he is interested in the role, saying he would be honored to be chosen. “Serving as chief of staff would be an incredible honor,” Meadows, 59, said in a statement. “The president has a long list of qualified candidates and I know he'll make the best selection for his administration and for the country.” Separately, Meadows’s allies made a forceful public case that Trump should pick their friend as his next top aide.

    Once voters begin to catch on that the new Democratic bosses of the House are much like the worst of the old GOP bosses — to the extent that they spurn change and cling to power at all costs — they may reconsider what they did last November. If Democrats focus on impeaching President Trump while keeping reactionary supporters of the status quo in power, they might find that their new House majority won’t last very long. Their last stint in power was four years long. It could be even shorter this time.

  • Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

    Our elite needs to back down instead of doubling down, but with leaders as unwise and malignant as Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit, is that realistic? Do you think any of our alleged superiors truly understand that Normals are not just going to give up participating in their own governance? If our elite betters actually got out of their kale-loving coastal enclaves once in a while, they might realize that. But our stupid elite is so intent on retaining its own power, like France’s elite is, that it will make disruption inevitable.

  • Charles Hurt, Washington Times

    French President Emmanuel Macron has scrapped his plan to increase the tax on diesel that so disproportionately hurts French workers. That leaves one wondering. If the future of the planet — the very life of Mother Earth, herself — hangs in the balance as these people believe, then how does Mr. Macron capitulate so easily? By his very own definition of global warming and the threat of fossil fuels such as diesel, he has agreed to murder Mother Earth with his own bare hands. Oh, well. I guess that will be only the second greatest tragedy over the past 100 years when people decided to unify Europe.

  • David Catron, The American Spectator

    Republicans will begin this process with a majority of 53-47. That means a minimum of twenty Republicans would have to defect to the other side of the aisle, assuming the Democrats sustain the kind of solidarity they maintained during the 1999 Clinton trial. This would be an excellent opportunity to identify the remaining RINOs still lurking in the Republican ranks, but impeachment would be incredibly disruptive to the orderly operation of the government and conclusively demonstrate that the Democrats have no agenda at all — beyond resisting President Trump and thwarting the will of the voters.

  • Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

    Winning the election is what politics is all about, and men (and lately women) successful in it understand the rough wisdom of Leo Durocher, who observed that “nice guys finish last.” The friendship that Adams and Jefferson nurtured survived. They became friends again after the brawl, just like George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton two centuries later. It’s not a good way to preserve a friendship, but politicians, and particularly presidents, rarely hold grudges. They usually understand that “bashing,” as Mr. Bush called it, is not nice, but it’s inevitable. The stakes are too high for it to be otherwise. Civility in politics is a good idea, but bashing works. Sad.

    Trump’s team acknowledged the Jerusalem move meant he would tilt to Palestinians on other issues, and he pointedly did not rule out the possibility that East Jerusalem could be the capital of their state. Yet continuing the pattern started in 2000, when Bill Clinton failed to get Yasser Arafat and then-Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak to create a two-state solution at Camp David, the Palestinians never get to yes. Time and again, they walk away when a reasonable deal could be made. Finally, an American president called their bluff and showed that even their threats were empty.

  • Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

    We have Donald Trump trying to cover up a couple of consensual liaisons -- tacky, for sure, even creepy and morally repellent, but, as I said, humdrum. Nevertheless, they are trying to get Trump impeached (the obvious goal of the investigation, not anything to do with Russia) for using campaign funds for these payoffs. They do this in full knowledge of the obvious -- that the businessman himself had put millions of his own money into his campaign, so the funds were originally his in the first place.  Indeed the sums he donated to his campaign undoubtedly dwarfed the payments to the two women.

    China still promises it is getting serious about global warming, and yet, they still build massive new coal-fired plants. The worry, especially these days, isn’t simply that China will happily take our business. It’s that when China gobbles up manufacturing fleeing the countries with serious climate controls, this becomes a geopolitical weapon. Increasingly, China is using industry as a weapon to gain control over its portion of the globe, as well as Africa and even South America. If the West disarms in the name of climate, China will march on, powered by its coal.

    In 2016, legions of bureaucrats wanted to score points in Hillary Clinton’s foreordained new administration by vying with each other to “insure” her blowout, to brag they had done in the ogre Trump, and to expect not so much impunity as adoration for their illegal but supposedly patriotic service beyond the call of duty. Trump was not just to be defeated but humiliated and destroyed as a lesson. Then Clinton lost—or rather she blew a sure Electoral College victory. Hillary Clinton, Christopher Steele, and Robert Mueller are all joined at the hip.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

    The establishment won the great political battles before 2016. But how did the democracy crusaders, globalists, open borders progressives and interventionists do by their country in these decades? Did the former presidents who sat beside Trump at National Cathedral, and the establishment seated in the pews behind them, realize that it was their policies, their failures, that gave birth to the new America that rose up to throw them out, and put in Donald Trump?

  • George Neumayr, The American Spectator

    Holder was famous for not letting anyone but flagged liberals work at the Justice Department. Years of such hiring creates the kind of groupthink that would allow for a cock-up of FISA-gate’s magnitude, where an American citizen was treated as a “probable” Russian agent whose every communication, both past and present, could be ransacked by FBI agents, all based on the word of a political opponent. Take away Comey’s sanctimony and he was just a crook with a badge.

  • Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

    Obama still seeks to convince the country that Trump is “unfit” to be president. After the recent passing of George H. W. Bush, there are now four living ex-presidents: Carter, Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama. There are five living former vice presidents: Walter Mondale, Dan Quayle, Al Gore, Dick Cheney, and Joe Biden. If all ex-presidents and ex-vice presidents were to weigh in nonstop on the current president and present-day politics, the result would be as chaotic as it would be boring.
