Donald Trump

The Only Cure for Media Malpractice

David Catron, The American Spectator

The media's tribal gods, Alinsky and Marx, are powerful. Their high priests, Bezos, Sulzberger, and Soon-Shiong, sacrifice the truth every day at the altars of the Washington Post, New York Times, and L.A. Times to evoke the chimeras you see on the “news.” And their acolytes, Zuckerberg, Page, and Brin control much of what you see on the internet, whether it purports to be news or entertainment. None of these people are impervious to market forces, but this is a very large market. The cure is to cut them off — all of them. But we would have to deny ourselves as well. Are we capable of doing that?

President Trump is down, but not out

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Trump is not the first president to put himself behind the eight ball. Sooner or later, they all do. The challenge now is a clear-eyed acceptance of reality and laser-like focus on the key question: What is my presidency for? It’s not a metaphysical quiz. The goal is to separate fact from fantasy and see what remains possible in light of the national mood and the 2020 calendar. What Trump cares about most, and what he should devote the rest of his presidency to, is obvious: fixing the immigration crisis, with border security the essential first step.

Ann Coulter Couldn't Be More Wrong - Trump Is No Wimp On The Wall

Ann Coulter couldn't be more wrong - Trump is no wimp. We urge CHQ readers and friends to have faith in President Trump’s commitment to build the wall. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) tell your Senators and Representative if Congress remains in political gridlock you agree the President should use his Article II authority to declare a national emergency and have the Pentagon build the Wall.

We Could All Be Roger Stone

The way we see it, Roger Stone’s only crimes are being friends with Donald Trump and using his considerable skills at manipulating the media to keep the story of Hillary Clinton’s many real crimes alive – and pissing-off Robert Mueller and his band of Democrat witch hunters in the process. We have contributed to the Roger Stone Legal Defense Fund and we hope you and other CHQ readers and friends will do likewise.

Assault on America, Day 26: Media says Trump caved on wall, but it’s Democrats in the dark

Democrats’ intractable position on border wall funding will invariably force President Trump’s hand -- and that’s something Trump relishes. Democrats could be reasonable and accept the president’s compromise offer…or more likely end up with a wall on the border and nothing for their side.

The surprising thing Trump and Lincoln have in common

Newt Gingrich, Fox News

Just as President Trump rails against “fake news,” President Lincoln felt that a significant front in his war to preserve the Union was against the news media. This made Lincoln highly critical and skeptical of the media. President Lincoln was a very different man facing a radically more dangerous situation than President Trump. Yet each president represents a direct threat to a national establishment by an outsider. There is a lot more similarity between the Lincoln crisis of the Union and the Trump crisis of the establishment than most people will want to even consider.

Senate GOP Squishes Screw Trump On Border Wall… Again

The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) we urge all CHQ readers and friends to call Senators Lamar Alexander, Susan Collins, Corey Gardner, Johnny Isakson, Lisa Murkowski and Mitt Romney to tell them no more defections, and that grassroots conservative Republicans back President Trump and his commitment to keep the partial government shutdown in place until the wall is funded.

Assault on America, Day 23: Trump and GOPers know without the wall, America soon may fall

President Trump’s new wall slogan may or may not sway the issue in his favor but he’s got to keep Republicans unified and in a fighting spirit on the border wall. Squandering this golden opportunity might not just mean the downfall of the GOP -- it could be the end of America, too.

The New York Times Attacks Us Deplorables, I Fight Back: Part 2 of 3

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
New York Times columnists Rosenfeld and Schlozman’s charge that the conservative movement is inherently racist constitutes a slander with no basis in fact, and it also conveniently deflects inquiry into which side really needs to appeal to racism to succeed, the Right or the Left?

Don’t Bet On Centrist Democrats Bringing Pelosi Around On The Wall

Centrist House Democrats, who say they are sick of political posturing, want Speaker Pelosi to counter Trump’s sure-to-die-in-the-Senate immigration proposal with her own compromise. But don't bet on them succeeding because all the political weight in the Democratic Party now lies with the Far Left.

Assault on America, Day 22: In Democrat-land, the prettier you are the smarter you become

The old saying goes that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but where Democrats are concerned a handsome countenance goes much farther than that. When trying to standout to the grossly uniformed and overly superficial Democrat base it pays to be a looker -- just ask Juan Williams.

The Mueller Squirrel Cage

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Mueller has taught us that whether you go to jail for perjury, illegal leaking, lying to federal investigators, destroying key evidence, obstructing a federal court, or trying, as a foreign citizen, to warp the outcome of a U.S. presidential election, all depend entirely on the particular agendas of a particular prosecutor, not the law per se. Mueller’s legacy will likely be that he has now institutionalized the idea of inequality under the law — seeking out bothersome outsider minnows while establishment sharks devoured the Constitution.

UniParty Pulling Bait And Switch On Trump Wall Funding

The UniParty on Capitol Hill is doing an elaborate little Minuet to convince you that there’s just no support for the Wall. Here’s the first Partita of the Minuet according to The Hill: The Senate leadership on Tuesday struck an agreement to vote on dueling proposals to reopen the federal government, not secure the southern border.

On Race Nothing Trump Does Will Ever Satisfy His Enemies

Nothing President Trump does, inlcuding signing a Proclamation honoring Dr. Martin Luther King and laying a wreath at his memorial will ever satisfy his enemies, who used those presidential ceremonies to scurrilously attack him as a racist.

Assault on America, Day 21: Long past time for a GOP scorched earth strategy on judge nominees

Try as they might, Democrats can’t delay everything forever, especially if Republicans grow a spine and make them participate in the process -- or they’ll just be steamrolled. Democrats play for keeps…it’s about time Republican leaders acknowledged it and countered fire with fire.

The GOP Finally Has a Fighting General

David Catron, The American Spectator

Democrats are fighting the last political war. That, interestingly enough, is why Lincoln entrusted the execution of the Civil War to Ulysses S. Grant and his right hand man, William T. Sherman. Lee and his fellow southern generals were stuck in the Napoleonic era. Grant and Sherman were decades ahead of them. Likewise, Pelosi and Schumer are stuck in the Clinton era, and the media are still wandering aimlessly around Watergate. President Trump is fighting this war, where the media is white noise, and we win.

Everyone Who Takes on Trump Ends Up Crushed

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Trump not only likes to fight but knows how to win. The GOP softies would have folded long ago in the face of media finger-wagging and howling Democrats. But not Trump. He enjoys crushing his enemies, seeing them driven before him, and hearing the lamentations of those who identify as women, as well as woke males who use Gillette products. Savor the coming victories. And they are coming, because this guy never loses when he takes on those who hate us. He will win the shutdown. He will take over the courts.

The New York Times Attacks Us Deplorables, I Fight Back: Part 1 of 3

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
NYT columnists Sam Rosenfeld and Daniel Schlozman apparently believe that we deplorables who voted for Ronald Reagan in 1980 and Donald Trump in 2016 are unworthy to govern and we should simply cede power to the Leftist elite and resume the status of the powerless victims we were prior to the rise of the Reagan coalition and the modern conservative movement.

Financial Markets Depend on Trump Holding Firm

The greatest threat to free markets is not the Democrats, everyone knows they are at heart socialists and crony capitalists, it is from cynical and spineless Republicans who give nothing but lip service to the ideals of personal and economic liberty.

Assault on America, Day 20: Shutdown blame game a mundane prelude to 2020 fireworks show

There’s definitely a chance this government shutdown goes on so long people forget how or why it started and all that’s left are Trump and Democrat leaders squabbling over who’s at fault. Ultimately the American people will decide between them -- and time is on Trump’s side.
