Adam Carolla and Dennis Prager Film to Expose Silliness of Safe Spaces and Snowflakes

“This is a story that must be told because the future of our country literally depends on what happens on these campuses,” said Dennis Prager. “If these students don’t understand the very concept of free speech, our whole nation is in trouble.”

How Berkeley Birthed the Right

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

The rage and resentment of the left at its rejection in 2016 are palpable. Sometimes this fever passes peacefully, as in the “Cooling of America” in the 1970s. And sometimes it doesn’t. But to have crowds of left and right coming out to confront one another violently, in a country whose citizens possess 300 million guns, is probably not a good idea.

Will Fascism Come to America through Its Colleges and Universities?

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The biggest cowards in our country today are many, if not most, of our college and university administrators followed closely by a fair amount of their faculty.  They are allowing their institutions to be taken over by a monolithic world view that is increasingly totalitarian and antithetical to the diversity of opinion on which the search for truth depends.

At Berkeley, the Mob Wins Again

David French, National Review

The gun on a police officer’s hip exists to protect himself and others, yes, but it also exists to guarantee liberty. Constitutionally literate leaders understand this truth. Constitutionally literate citizens understand it as well. The guns on our own hips represent our commitment to freedom, and this much I know: If law enforcement fails to defend our nation’s founding liberties, then, ultimately, an armed citizenry will. The choice is that stark. The stakes are that great.

Facebook Labels ConservativeHQ “Malicious” Blocks Pro-Trump Content

Right before the election Facebook began to block CHQ content. In responses that sounded like they were written by Lois Lerner, we were assured that the problem had nothing to do with ConservativeHQ’s name or the conservative content of our articles, but the problem has continued to grow and now Facebook has labeled CHQ a "malicious" website.

Trump vs the Cult of Political Correctness

When we look at this week’s protests during the Trump -- Pence inauguration and their potential for violence we need to see most protesters for what they are; victims of Far-Left propaganda and the cult of political correctness.

Will The Left Silence You Into Submission?

In her latest video interview for The Daily Caller News Foundation, this time with the Wall Street Journal's Kimberly Strassel, our friend Ginni Thomas asks readers to imagine if conservatives were using government agencies to bully or silence their opponents in America’s public square in 2016.

Hillary Clinton’s Speech: A Trumpet Upon Which Disaster On Disaster Was Proclaimed

The elitist hypocrisy of Clinton’s remarks was not lost on those Americans left behind for the past eight years by the economic and immigration policies of Clinton and Obama, and most importantly to those Americans whose constitutional liberty is threatened with attack should Mrs. Clinton win this election, her remarks were the sound of a trumpet upon which disaster on disaster was proclaimed.

The Selective Argument that Political Rhetoric Leads to Violence

Jim Geraghty, National Review

Isn’t it ridiculous to expect sane people to watch what they say and restrict what thoughts they express in order to prevent a rampage by someone with an inherently illogical, literally unreasonable, not-sane thinking process?

Zip it: GOP students 'intimidated' on campus, say views less tolerated

Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner

For Folks Who Just Love Suppressing Free Speech

Charles Lipson, Real Clear Politics

The Canadian government of Stephen Harper has a fascinating idea. Use hate-crime laws against groups that advocate boycotting Israel. It’s a terrible idea. But I love it; there is a perverse humor to Harper’s idea because it targets the very people who try so hard to suppress others’ views and ostracize them. It tells them to enjoy their own home cooking.

Garland, Texas Jihadi Attack – Establishment Media Ignore Islamic Motivation

We here at CHQ get it; Garland, Texas Mayor Douglas Athas gets it; Pamela Geller of the American Freedom Defense Initiative gets it and Dutch Member of Parliament Geert Wilders gets it. The establishment media here in America are self-enforcing Islamic Sharia law and under Sharia you cannot criticize or offend Islam, so they will never admit that the terrorist attack in Garland, Texas was a Muslim attack on freedom of speech, assembly and religion -- in short an attack on the liberty under the Constitution that is the very foundation of this country. UPDATE: 2:26 p.m. The second shooter in the Garland, Texas attack has been identified as Nadir Soofi, 34. The first shooter to be indentified was Elton Simpson, 30, who according to the FBI had been investigated for terrorism in the past. Court records from 2011 show Simpson identified as an “American Muslim.” Soofi and Simpson were housemates at an apartment complex in Phoenix, Arizona.

Bob Price, Breitbart Texas

Don’t Pick Political Fights With Pope Francis

Rachel Lu, The Federalist

Conservatives have everything to lose and nothing to gain from getting mad at Pope Francis for his public comments on homosexuality, global warming, free speech, and more.

So Much For “The Religion Of Peace”

We are in a war of ideas, not just with radical Islamists, but with concepts deeply embedded in Muslim culture. And as long as mass legal (and illegal) immigration from Muslim countries continues unabated we are losing that war. 

Despite Media Spin, It’s Not a ‘Conservative’ Supreme Court

Rob Natelson, CNS News

If a “conservative” justice is one who consistently interprets the Constitution in accordance with traditional methods of judging—as the Founders intended for it to be interpreted—then the Court is anything but conservative.

GWill: Sen. Dems Extremism Against Free Speech

George F. Will, Washington Post

Forty-eight members of the Dem. caucus attempted to do something never previously done: Amend the Bill of Rights. They tried to radically shrink 1st Amend. protection of political speech. They evidently think extremism in defense of the political class’s convenience is no vice.

Limbaugh Blasts Redskins Trademark Stunt as 'Tyranny'

Todd Beamon, NewsMax

Conservatives ripped the decision by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to strip the Washington Redskins of its trademark, blasting it as the ultimate power play by the Obama admin. to plunder free-speech rights. Rush Limbaugh said, "This is not the Patent and Trademark Office.

Gov Union Demands Firing of Duck Dynasty Fans

Cheryl K. Chumley, Washington Times

A government union at Eglin Air Force base in FL says two senior managers should be fired, or at least removed from their leadership roles, because they have decals on their vehicles that read: “Duck Dynasty: I Support Phil.'
