Fans of the Terminator series of science fiction action movies will recall that the Terminators were the product of an Artificial Intelligence defense system that turned against humans and decided to wipe out its creators. But what if Skynet had been programed so that it only learned to attack white people, or Christians, or conservatives?

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.

As with every campaign, messaging will be extremely important in 2020. Democrats will vie for the title of most extreme and liberal to please primary voters and President Trump will continue to preside over the GOP, the two parties preparing for an all-out messaging war in the coming months.

In a bombshell new undercover video, insider interview and document leak, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has exposed that search giant Google, whose senior executives were intimately involved in the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, has plans to “prevent” another "Trump situation" in 2020. 

If you love liberty, freedom and the free market, then you won’t want to miss FreedomFest 2019, the nation’s largest conference for Conservatives and Libertarians, July 17-20 at the Paris Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. Sign up by July 1 and get $100 off the registration fee. Go to www.freedomfest.com, or call toll-free 1-855-850-3733, ext. 202.

Liberals like Alyssa Milano should be careful about attaching the “hypocrite” label to anyone, much less those who are pro-life protectors of the unborn. Neither the immigration issue nor the culture war will be decided by outspoken Hollywood actors. American voters will notice, too.

There was a time when businesses, especially America’s major corporate employers, encouraged family life. Fast forward to 2019 and a new era of what we call corporate fascism, where, as Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) said in recent speech, politically correct CEOs apparently think babies are "bad for business.”

Our friends at Ammoland.com and the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) have alerted us to the VCDL Special Session Lobby Day on Tuesday, July 9, starting at 9 a.m. Go to https://www.vcdl.org/ to learn how you can be a part of Lobby Day and be sure to contact your Virginia Delegate or Senator to help fight this latest Democrat gun grab.

Crazy plans are in abundance these days as Democrat presidential candidates hit the campaign trail hard hoping to draw notice from party voters -- and more importantly, the sensationalism hungry media. Corey Booker and “Beto” O’Rourke probably won’t get far, but they’ll sure jump through hoops to get a TV spot.

We urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Representative (the toll-free Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044), tell your Representative you agree with Barack Obama, slave reparations are unconstitutional on their face, and demand that your Representative vote NO on H.R. 40 or any other slave reparations bill that comes before the House.

As Fr. Pavone recently wrote, let’s re-launch our own efforts to educate and mobilize the pro-life vote. Let’s expose the extremism of the Democrat platform and policies on abortion, especially late-term abortion and even infanticide. Let’s make sure people in our movement are registered to vote and most importantly, let's pray for President Trump.

A year from now when both parties are gearing up for their nominating conventions few will remember what was done or said at Tuesday night’s Trump reelection announcement rally. People will be too focused on choosing between the candidates then -- and Trump will definitely come out ahead.

    Stockman’s supporters wrote that it “is especially concerning to many of these amici who, from time to time, may be high-profile, outspoken critics of government officials and politicians, as was Stockman.” Stockman’s conviction will have a chilling effect on nonprofits trying to raise and spend money. Based on the horrendous errors that took place by the prosecution, which were sadly rubber-stamped by the judge, Stockman should be able to get his conviction reversed. Otherwise it sets a terrifying precedent for conservatives in the nonprofit arena.

    If war is to be avoided, either Iran is going to have to capitulate, or the U.S. is going to have to walk back its maximalist position. And who would Trump name to negotiate with Tehran for the United States? The longer the sanctions remain in place and the deeper they bite, the greater the likelihood Iran will respond to our economic warfare with its own asymmetric warfare. Has the president decided to take that risk? We appear to be at a turning point in the Trump presidency. Does he want to run in 2020 as the president who led us into war with Iran, or as the anti-interventionist president who began to bring U.S. troops home from that region that has produced so many wars?

    Warren will no doubt get her a beer, grab a copy of her DNA test, and seek the advice of the Cherokee tribal elders. Biden, having learned from the media that Trump supporters are all racists, may pour himself two fingers of Scotch and try to imagine what his segregationist mentors James Eastland and Herman Talmadge would do in similar circumstances. In the end, however, it doesn’t really make very much difference. Trump voters all have at least one thing in common. They know that not a single Democrat on that NBC stage Wednesday or Thursday can be trusted — as Talmadge might have put it — in an outhouse with a muzzle on.

    Ideology is for children and college professors. The question is how do we use common sense? That sense tells me that Trump has now cleared the way for serious action against the mullahs when they pull another stunt, as we can assume they will. Indeed if they have any brains — and some of them must, even with their berserk belief system — they probably see this too. If I were Iran, I'd be afraid. I'd be very afraid. I might even come to the table. And, needless to say, Trump has no interest whatsoever in a ground war with Iran, as well he shouldn't. That part of the neocon lesson holds. Any action should and would come from the air.

    The allocation of representatives in a state legislature or in the U.S. House of Representatives is a fundamental political question that cannot be resolved without political considerations. Democrats know this, which is why they are demanding major revisions to the way elections are held for the U.S. House of Representatives in their H.R. 1 bill — major revisions they could exploit to increase their political power. Funny, they never complained about partisan redistricting that favored the Democrat party when they controlled a majority of state legislatures. Claims that this or that system for drawing the boundary lines of state and congressional districts is “nonpolitical” are a myth.

    It has always amazed me that America has the highest quality health care in the world with amazing new cures and treatments — almost all invented here — and yet we use such a dump method of paying the $3 trillion annual cost. The alternative to using markets and price transparency to control health costs is price controls, waiting lines and eventually death panels. The latter will drive down costs by driving down the quality of our health services.

  • Rich Lowry, National Review

    Subtract Trump’s taste for nonstop controversy and rhetorical brinkmanship, and you’re left with an incrementalist center-right government that has pursued an expansionary fiscal policy and avoided foreign war, for a period of peace and prosperity that — in any other universe — would be at the core of a stay-the-course reelection message. Given the choice, you’d prefer that people believed that your administration was cautious and incremental, while it undertook far-reaching changes, rather than believe it’s on the verge of careening out of control, while pursuing a fairly reasonable path. On the whole, Trump's been a steward of a country enjoying markedly good times.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

    Biden is about to have his nose rubbed in friendships formed almost half a century ago. Like reparations for slavery, on which hearings have opened in the House, this issue seems certain to arise in the debates next week, where taking down Biden will be an objective of every other candidate. And Jim Eastland is not the only segregationist friend Joe had. Southern segregationists remain honored today. The Old Senate Office Building was renamed in 1972 for Senator Richard Russell of Georgia and John C. Stennis of Mississippi. What does all this mean for the Democratic Party? We are about to find out.

    With almost 500,000 new manufacturing jobs created in the United States since he took office, President Trump can proudly stand on his policies which are beginning the revitalization of America with some of the latest high-tech, advanced manufacturing factories in the world. While America still has a long way to go to restore our manufacturing sector, President Trump’s America First trade policy is working to rebuild our nation’s economy, creating the economic and political environment where good paying jobs are returning and the average wage of the American worker is on the rise. And that’s a record that any president would be proud to run on.

  • Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

    Trump’s path to reelection is blazingly obvious – avoid mistakes (like some new war) while focusing on the new normal of economic prosperity. Ask the Reagan Question: “Are you better off now than you were four years ago?” For Normals, the answer is yes, yes, yes. Yet Trump remains the change agent in the campaign. It’s the Democrats who are the party of the status quo, the sorry state of the union pre-2016. Decline. Despair. Declarations of how much we Normal people suck. That’s their platform. It’s not very appealing in places where people have jobs that involve sweating and headgear. And while the Dems may run up 60%-70% margins among baristas and public employee union parasites in the blue states, who cares?

    When it comes to secession, the one and most obviously beneficial outcome of the war was actually unplanned. At the outset abolition was rejected by almost everyone, north and south. Preserving the Union simply wasn’t a moral cause. It didn’t warrant mass slaughter. In June 1864 the ultimate denouement of the Civil War approached. Once the Confederacy’s most effective army and talented general were stuck defending Petersburg, defeat was inevitable. Soon racial problems and conflict would shift back to the political realm. There never was any adequate justification for either secession or coercion, which together tragically turned northern Virginia into an open air abattoir in Spring 1864.

    The smarter newspaper publishers concluded long ago that newspapers made a mortal mistake by making their news reports free in the dawn of the digital age, thinking free samples would swell circulation numbers and show prospective subscribers what they would miss if they didn’t pay up. Hard-headed businessmen and business women, ranging from corner grocers to automobile mechanics to bordello madams, could have told them that you can’t make a profit on your product by giving it away. Newspapers have their problems, and none of them will be resolved by pitiful cries for mercy. Trust is what needs fixing.

    The 448-page Mueller report has been public for two months, so it might seem strange that the Justice Department's original instructions to special counsel Robert Mueller, outlining what he was assigned to investigate, are still a secret. But they are. And now, it turns out those instructions were more extensive than previously known. Until now, it was widely understood that there had been two "scope memos" from the DOJ to Mueller. Now, it turns out there was a third, as well. Dated Oct. 20, 2017, its contents remain a secret. But its very existence suggests something was going on behind the scenes in the relationship of Mueller and his supervisors at the Justice Department.

  • David Catron, The American Spectator

    The Republicans need to flip only 18 House seats in 2020 to regain control of that body. Time reports, “President Donald Trump raised $24.8 million in the hours following the official launch of his campaign for re-election in 2020, Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said.” That figure, combined with the size and enthusiasm of the Orlando crowd, suggests that Democratic hopes of denying him a second term are pure fantasy. None of the Trump voters in those 31 House districts that Trump won in 2016 are going to split their tickets and vote for a Democrat — no matter how “moderate.” The party of investigations and obstruction is due for yet another sojourn in the political wilderness.

    Why has this happened in a place that is so rich it is the fifth biggest economy in the world by itself, ahead of the United Kingdom and just behind Germany? Can't they just throw money at the homeless and make them go away? Not so easy. It's been tried, at least to some extent. Shelters, some of them well built, have been constructed all over the city but the homeless don't want to stay in them. The reason is these shelters are drug-free zones and the homeless of LA (and San Francisco and Seattle) are anything but drug-free. Most are addicts. They prefer to live in tents where they can smoke what they want, shoot what they want, pop what they want. So homeless encampments keep growing and sprout up everywhere.
