Why Catholics Should Not Vote For Fake Catholic Joe Biden

Joe Biden’s advocacy of abortion, same-sex “marriage” and transgenderism put him in direct conflict, not with some ephemeral policies of church administration, but with the fundamental precepts of Catholicism that make a Catholic a Catholic. As Cardinal Burke said, Joe Biden is “not in communion with Christ,” or his church. Catholics should not be persuaded to vote for Joe Biden in the false belief that he is a faithful Catholic.

Bannon Case May Rest With Stockman Petition

The key similarities between the Bannon and Stockman cases lie in the First Amendment protections of soliciting donations. Let’s be clear, the First Amendment does not protect fraud. But the Supreme Court has repeatedly recognized that fundraising communications can be valuable forms of speech about causes. And, the right to associate with causes, including controversial and politically important ones, needs protection.

A Political Hit on Steve Bannon

The misuse of our government institutions to go after political enemies is incredibly disturbing. The swamp, despite a few years of draining is still very deep. It is obvious that these actions are attempts to silence Steve Bannon and conservatives through intimidation. Using the legal process to try and take away an opponent’s liberty and right to Free Speech is shameful. Conservatives must fight back.

Kamala Harris Has Only Two Principles

We agree with Tucker Carlson, Kamala Harris is the “single most transactional human being in America.” Harris even beats out Hillary Clinton in that regard, and that’s saying a lot. But Kamala Harris is not without principles – it’s just that the two principles she has held most consistently, detestation of religious people in general and virulent hatred of Catholics in particular, should frighten every American.

Conservative Journalist Chanel Rion Of OAN Launches New White House Correspondents Organization

Calling the existing White House Correspondents Association "Exclusionary" and an “Old Boys’ Club” of “Press Bullies” operating rent free on the White House grounds, and without legal standing, Chanel Rion, Chief White House Correspondent for One America News Network (OAN), announced yesterday the formal launch of the National White House Correspondents Association (NWHCA).

Kamala Harris Is An Anchor Baby, Not A ‘Natural Born Citizen’ Of The United States

The circumstances of Kamala Harris’s birth amount to birth tourism where the child is born in the geographic confines of the United States for the sole purpose of obtaining American citizenship and then whisked off to another country, only to return when and if being an American is economically advantageous. That leads us to conclude Harris is not a “natural born citizen," rather, she is more like America’s most high profile and least grateful anchor baby.

Sign The Philadelphia Statement: Stand for Free Speech and Stop Cancel Culture

One of the key points the Philadelphia Statement makes that prompted us to lend our name and wholehearted support is this: "...we must be willing to trust that bad ideas will be corrected not through censorship but through better arguments.” Our job at CHQ is to make those “better arguments” on behalf of conservative principles and to boldly take to the public square to explain and argue on behalf of our conservative values, principles, and policy judgements.

Kamala Harris Is Hillary Clinton Without The Charm

The Democrats’ choice of Senator Kamala Harris as Joe Biden’s running mate and presumptive replacement as President is a truly frightening proposition for America, and particularly America’s Catholics and cultural conservatives. As Attorney General of California, Ms. Harris made her reputation with the activist Far Left by persecuting pro-life conservatives, such as David Daleiden, and cultural and economic conservative non-profit organizations, such as the Americans for Prosperity Foundation.

Trump Promise Kept: Administration Acts To Protect Americans Against Online Censorship

We applaud the fact that President Trump and Secretary Ross agree with us that the time has passed for lame excuses from Big Tech. The Commerce Department petition is a good first step, however, absent Congress acting decisively to counter the threat to freedom of speech from Big Tech companies, it’s time for the federal government to also consider antitrust solutions for companies like Google and the rest of the Big Tech industry that have grown too powerful and too irresponsible.

Silicon Valley Ramps Up Censorship Of Conservatives

We all know that America's Frontline Doctors weren’t deplatformed and censored for providing misleading information about COVID-19, they were deplatformed and censored for providing information that demonstrates President Trump was right, and that contradicts and undermines the Democrats’ plan to ramp up the misery to help them defeat Trump in the 2020 election.

How many more times will Google censor conservatives, and then lie about it?

The Free Speech Alliance, which includes ConservativeHQ.com, has released a letter saying if Google won’t be honest and fix its censorship problem, then Congress must act decisively to counter the threat to freedom of speech from Google and other Big Tech companies. It’s time for the federal government to consider antitrust solutions for companies like Google and the rest of the Big Tech industry that have grown too powerful and too irresponsible.

Judge Slaps Down de Blasio And Cuomo Restrictions On Religious Liberty

America’s worst mayor, New York’s Bill de Blasio, and America’s most hypocritical governor, New York’s Andrew Cuomo, got a spanking from Judge Gary Sharpe sitting in the United States District Court for the Northern District of New York, which recently  granted a group of religious plaintiffs a preliminary injunction enjoining de Blasio, Cuomo and their vile minions from prohibiting certain religious gatherings.

Assault on open speech is an attack on America

Editors, Washington Examiner

The New York Times is obviously free to publish whoever it wants, and nobody has a right to its platform. So, too, can a private streaming service decide what content to offer. For this reason, we prefer the term “open speech” to “free speech” in these controversies. But the erosion of the principle of open debate is a dangerous trend, especially given that one day, younger generations will grow up and take over the government. A republic in which people are not tolerant of those who disagree, in which the mob aims to erase parts of culture that are uncomfortable, is not one that can long endure.

Senator Josh Hawley To AG Barr: Investigate Religious Discrimination By Local Officials

Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri was spot on in his letter to Attorney General Bill Barr. What is now obvious is that the rules imposed by the states of California, Michigan and other Democrat-run localities not only favored one type of First Amendment speech over another, but they were completely arbitrary and capricious – there was absolutely no “science” behind any of the restrictions on religious gatherings.

NYT Melt Down: Sen. Cotton Suggests Trump Do What Ike Did When Democrats Sided With Rioters

What is the difference between Arkansas Governor Orval Faubus, a racist Democrat, siding with the rioters to prevent the integration of Little Rock Central High School and New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio, a racist Democrat, siding with the rioters and looters destroying Manhattan’s retail district? Both used the power of their office to incite violence to achieve political ends.

Trump Administration Moves To Protect Donor Privacy

The Institute for Free Speech will be before the IRS this morning fighting for donor privacy and to help ensure that venal Democrats, such as former California Attorney General Kamal Harris, cannot weaponize nonprofit donor disclosures against political opponents.

Liberal judge unjustly rules against pro-life journalist

Rebecca Hagelin, Washington Times

While the leftist Democrats accuse the president of endangering freedom of the press, they rejoice when a pro-life journalist is denied First Amendment protections. In this case, Mr. Daleiden not only had his rights trampled, he was fined some $2 million for exposing Planned Parenthood’s bloody criminal practices. The president of the United States and the brave journalists in California are being pummeled by powerful liberal elitists who will stop at nothing to destroy them. If they can overthrow an election and destroy the First Amendment, imagine what they will do to you if you get under their skin. Will we work and vote for candidates who will fight to protect our Constitutional rights?

Liberals Hate Free Speech When We Presume To Use It

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

The liberal elite never really believed in free speech, at least not for you. It was always a pose. And now that you are able to effectively exercise that right, they are livid we peasants point out our national leadership's failures. So, don’t be like the David Frenchs of the world, always ascribing pure motives to the bad guys and being all “Oh well I never!” when we Normals fight back against the oppression the ruling caste heaps upon us. Get woke. Understand our enemy. Understand its objectives. Understand that in its hive mind, you have no rights, only the obligation to conform and obey the liberal elite.

University Of Florida Agrees To Stop Discriminating Against Young Americans For Freedom

The YAF chapter at UF agreed to settle its lawsuit against the university in exchange for eliminating the policies that prohibited the group from receiving speaker fees to bring in conservative speakers and $66,000 in damages and attorney fees. “...we hope it makes both students and administrators think about the value that free speech (whether we agree with it or not) brings to society..." said YAF student leader Sarah Long.
