2020 Election

Assault on America, Day 582: Hey Joe Biden, your VP search Ain’t No Way to Treat a Lady

“Unity” is a fleeting concept in today’s America and it doesn’t seem likely folks will be brought together when Grampa Joe Biden’s running mate is announced, the filibuster is done away with or the media keeps up with its all-hate-all-the-time coverage of President Trump. Our country is in crisis and a lot of bad actors are making it worse.

As the Filibuster Goes, So Goes the GOP

Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News

In a 2017 public letter, Democrats endorsed the retention of the filibuster, both on principle and because of the unique character of the Senate: "We are steadfastly committed to ensuring that this great American institution continues to serve as the world's greatest deliberative body." If the filibuster is thrown out, writes the Journal, "The door to radicalism is getting busted wide open, and Americans of both parties may not like what comes out the other side." If the filibuster goes, and the Dem left runs wild in the next two years, will that republic survive the disfiguring surgery?

Why Voting By Mail Imperils Biden More Than Trump

David Catron, The American Spectator

A number of Democrat-controlled states are moving to pass bills that will mandate vote-by-mail schemes. Democrats and their media partners have set a trap for themselves by exploiting the COVID-19 pandemic in a cynical effort to achieve their goal of universal mail-in voting. But it will fail for the same reason Al Gore failed to recount his way to the White House. The Electoral Count Act, with its thirty-five day “safe harbor” provision, doesn’t give them the time to work the system. Joe Biden will lose because his handlers are ignorant of a statute that has been on the books for over a century.

Biden And Democratic Party Now Completely Penetrated By Hardcore Communists

Joe Biden is too weak to be president and too weak to stand up to the radical left. He’s nothing more than an empty vessel for the extremist fringe of the new Marxist Democrat Party, a terrifying cabal which now includes active communist leaders and those who have been, for decades, committed to overthrowing of our American constitutional republic and replacing it with a violent socialist oligarchy.

Forget Another COVID Bailout President Trump Should Chart His Own Course To Rebuild The Economy

We urge CHQ readers and friends to call the White House at 202-456-1111 or use this link to email the White House to let President Trump know you back him and want him to make a bold move to enact pro-growth economic policy and rearrange the political chessboard for the 2020 election by declaring a national economic emergency and announcing that the Internal Revenue Service will immediately stop collecting the payroll tax.

Assault on America, Day 581: What do Dems and flag-snubbing NBA players have in common?

Professional athletes and Democrat congressmen and women behaving badly seems to be commonplace these days. It’s almost like they’re trying to get folks riled up rather than providing entertainment and good governance. They couldn’t do worse if they tried… or maybe the insults are the latest salvos in a greater war to destroy what remains of American culture.

Your Quality Of Life In A Democrat-Run City

Whether the Democrats on the Minneapolis City Council are pandering to the Far Left or grandstanding for the media is largely irrelevant to those who now live in this Democrat-run dystopian Hell, where the little people are told to submit to the criminals instead of calling the police and the elite leadership class lives in a private security protected bubble, insulated from the crime-ridden Hell they’ve created.

Bob Marshall: The perilous quest to fast-track a Covid-19 vaccine

To address the COVID-19 epidemic governments are considering mandatory vaccination of every person in the world with fast-tracked, never-before-approved vaccines that can alter genes; vaccines using tissue from aborted children and vaccines developed without animal testing prior to human trials. A 1972 Science magazine editorial cautioned that mass immunization campaigns can produce significant irreversible harm if a vaccine became contaminated with an unrecognized agent such as a cancer-causing virus. Rushing to produce a Covid-19 vaccine could have similar effects.

Assault on America, Day 580: Trump is right, national mail-in balloting would be a disaster

President Trump opened a can of worms last week when he tweeted that the election could be postponed until after the COVID-19 national panic subsides. Democrats will use the occasion to step up their calls for mail-in balloting, a tragic national disaster waiting to happen if it comes down to it. Republicans had better step up.

Read the Fine Print to Know What a Biden Presidency Brings

Roger Kimball, The Epoch Times

Even if Joe Biden wins, it will not be he who governs. On every contentious issue—immigration, defense spending, regulation, education, healthcare, taxes, housing policy, student debt—the Democratic platform calls for a huge increase in government intrusiveness and consequent loss of individual freedom. Naturally, the truly radical nature of this platform is somewhat concealed by bureaucratese and a clever deployment of uplifting abstractions. Elie Wiesel was asked what his experience of the Holocaust taught him. “When people say they want to kill you,” he said, “believe them.” Good advice.

Liberal media blurs cost of ongoing Black Lives Matter/Antifa race riots

Robert Knight, Washington Times

Apart from lots of happy stories depicting the whole country kneeling to the BLM’s anti-White, Marxist demands, you won’t see much about the real costs. Between May 25 and June 8, at least 17 people were killed in what the media call “unrest.” More than 700 law enforcers were injured. Property damage has run into the billions, and we’re not done yet. Portland continues to simmer, and cities explode nightly, like Richmond this past week. Just because the media have amnesia, we shouldn’t forget the real costs of the Democrats’ experiment in street justice. Or sacrifices of the thin blue line.

Coronavirus and the Ceremony of Innocence

David Catron, The American Spectator

The coronavirus pandemic isn’t very impressive by historical standards. Consequently, it will change our lives in relatively superficial ways. The majority come from that most reviled tribe of villains — men. COVID-19 kills about twice as many males as women. Consequently, some feminists may view the pandemic as condign punishment for the plague of patriarchy they claim has sickened society for millennia. A more rational way to look at coronavirus is as a wake-up call. Most of us conduct our lives as if depravity and deprivation don’t exist. Perhaps COVID-19 will drown that ceremony of innocence.

Will Democracy Get Lost in the Mail?

Tim Graham, CNS News

The media are starting to admit that mail-in voting might not turn out very well. This year, people have risked their health and stood in long lines to participate in our democracy. The prospect of an orderly election with results the people can have confidence in is looking grim. In 1984, I cast my first presidential vote for Ronald Reagan with an absentee ballot mailed home to Wisconsin. My father informed me, after Reagan won in a landslide, that my vote wasn't counted. That wasn't heartbreaking, but if this election gets messy and isn't a landslide, we're going to have heartbreak, angst, and rage.

Despite Trump tweet, election won’t be delayed — but all-mail voting poses grave dangers

Hans A. von Spakovsky, Fox News

Americans should insist on their right to vote in-person in their polling places, where they can be sure their ballots are safely received and counted. No one disputes that those most at risk from the coronavirus pandemic may want to vote by absentee ballot. But as the NYT correctly said back in 2012, “votes cast by mail are less likely to be counted, more likely to be compromised and more likely to be contested than those cast in a voting booth.” That assessment is just as true today as it was eight years ago. Voters should not be forced to deal with the problems of massive voting by mail.

The Folly of the Never Republicans

Rich Lowry, National Review

What the Never Republicans are hoping for is not just a repudiation of Trump. They want the least resistance to the most progressive president of our lifetimes to give him the greatest possible running room on abortion, conscience rights, health care, judges, climate, immigration, transgender policy, policing, gun rights, campaign finance, taxes, spending and, surely, things we can’t even think of yet. This is a high cost to pay, not just for the GOP, but for the country — at least that’s what you think if you are a conservative who believes progressives are deeply wrong on all these questions.

Conservative Leaders Petition President Trump To Save Steve Stockman's Life

Assault on America, Day 579: America needs a bubble to isolate from media/political stupidity

It goes without saying a lot of people will have much to answer for once the “bubble” is burst and there’s no longer a need to worry about the CCP virus. Will we all look back on these times with humor and understanding of what went on? Or will it be more like a gigantic societal hangover with people asking, “I did what?”

Democrats Embrace Riots And Socialist Revolution

Attorney General Barr recently made a key point that every American should keep in mind going into the 2020 election, “What makes me concerned for the country is this is the first time in my memory the leaders of one of our great two political parties, the Democratic Party, are not coming out and condemning mob violence and the attack on federal courts.” Barr left hanging the obvious reason why Democrats have failed to condemn the violence in Portland – it’s their allies and voters who are trying to burn down the courthouse, and the American constitutional republic with it.

Conservative Leaders Tell Department Of Labor To Pull Our Pension Money Out Of Communist China

“The investment of private retirement funds into Chinese companies that do not comply with basic transparency standards, and in many cases rely upon child- and slave-labor, is incompatible with fundamental American values and must be discontinued.” The repugnant practice of investing U.S. pension funds in Communist China makes unwitting private U.S. retirees investors in Chinese companies which use child- and slave-labor, “effectively making individual 401(k) owners or pensioners parties to and profiteers from the exploitation of the victims of such cruel abuse.”

Assault on America, Day 576: Bored Democrats politicizing COVID-19 to petrify America

One month away from the traditional, post Labor Day start of the presidential campaign season, Democrats are pulling out all the stops to pin the ongoing CCP virus pandemic on President Trump and his administration. The liberal party’s “solutions” always involve dumping more money; other than that, they haven’t a clue.
