Assault on America, Day 495: Time to hit brakes on federal spending and worry about tomorrow

With the health threat from the coronavirus winding down in the individual states, it’s time to carefully consider the next steps and not sustain the out-of-control federal spending of the past three months. A fiscal emergency can be just as urgent as a disease pandemic, but moves made now will heavily impact the future.

Assault on America, Day 492: ‘Tomorrow’ is just about all that’s left for doddering Joe Biden

It boggles the mind to consider Joe Biden is destined to be the Democrats’ 2020 nominee, as he struggles to string together coherent sentences and doesn’t appear to be in control of his own faculties. Joe’s search for the perfect running mate match must be taxing what’s left of his limited cognitive capacity. Down the road awaits Donald Trump. Daunting.

Assault on America, Day 491: Now more than ever, Trump should tout economy for reelection

Everyone knows the economy will be the foremost issue in this year’s election, and most people recognize President Trump is the best leader to handle the near-impossible task of getting things back to normal. In making the argument, Trump should cite both his record and his experience, assets no opponent could match.

Assault on America, Day 490: Forrest Gump sets the line between science and common sense

These days it’s hard to tell where “science” stops and good judgment begins, but the coronavirus conundrum and China’s role in the pandemic will help reveal the dividing line. Democrat politicians can only hide behind graphs, charts and models for so long -- sooner or later, they’ll have to start making sense.

Assault on America, Day 489: Time to fuel up and let Trump be Trump across America again

Word that President Trump plans to get on the road again is welcome news to conservatives and Republicans weary of seeing him confined to the White House and unable to appeal directly to voters instead of being bludgeoned by Democrats and the media without let-up. Here’s to well-worn luggage, Mr. Trump.

Assault on America, Day 488: COVID-19 will come back in the fall. Tell us what we don’t know

The experts think they’re being helpful by predicting a new round of coronavirus infections after the summer season, but it’s not telling us anything we don’t already know. Debate will continue as to the wisdom of shutting down the economy in the first place. For most of us, it’s time to relearn what it was like to enjoy basic liberties.

Assault on America, Day 485: What happened to #BelieveSurvivors? The Tara Reade travesty

Biden accuser Tara Reade isn’t likely to go away, but the Democrat establishment wouldn’t dream of allowing her a full hearing in the court of public opinion. All the party’s pontificating over “believing survivors” during the Kavanaugh sideshow goes out the window when one of their own is threatened. Grampa Joe will be on the ballot in November.

Conservatives Petition White House To Disconnect From Red China And Hold Communists Accountable For Pandemic

A group of conservative leaders has launched an open letter to President Trump urging him to hold Red China accountable for the damage and loss of life caused by the Wuhan virus.

Assault on America, Day 484: Media hypocrites overreact to wrong kind of government shutdown

As the coronavirus episode has revealed, Democrats and their media enablers don’t act the least bit bothered by keeping America’s business doors closed as long as it plays to their political prospects. It’s a far cry from their concerns for federal employees during government shutdowns. How do they explain the distinction?

“Occam's Razor” – The Case of the Chinese Corona Virus

In this CHQ exclusive, Richard Lawless, author of Capitol Hill's Criminal Underground applies Occam's Razor to the corona virus epidemic. Sometimes the most obvious explanation is the right one. Lawless believes that is the case when it comes to the corona virus pandemic.  One must ask, who would benefit the most from a global pandemic with crushing economic consequences? Where does the evidence take us?

Assault on America, Day 483: Dopey Joe’s make- believe presser not a dream -- it’s a nightmare

If Joe Biden truly were president it’s safe to say a lot of people would take a realistic look at his leadership qualities and find them lacking. It’s one thing to isolate yourself in a coronavirus-proof bunker; it’s quite another to face the hostile media every day and still come out looking like a winner. That’s President Trump.

Let the Lockdown End, County by County

Grassroots protests are multiplying against the draconian stay-at-home orders, and every day brings new announcements of states ending parts of their lockdowns.  The challenge is to do it intelligently to avoid a second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our friend David Franke says the way to do that is to end the lockdowns on a county-by-county basis, as he explains in this report.

Assault on America, Day 482: Biden says Trump will delay the 2020 vote. Blatant lie or reality?

The new reality with China is yet another reason why Trump wouldn’t dream of delaying this year’s election, since Joe Biden’s dirty fingerprints are all over the subject and voters tend to have short attention spans. There’s a long way to go before November and the world is changing awful fast. Stay tuned.

Anti-Lockdown Protests And The Defiant Protestant Heart of America

Defiance of the authoritarian kings and queens of the universal lockdown order, the high priests of COVID-19 pseudo-science and the Inquisitors of the establishment media is deeply rooted in America’s cultural Calvinism and the Protestant Enlightenment. Far from being anti-science this defiance is deeply rooted in Protestant Enlightenment thinking in which all authority may be tested against the plain language of the Gospel and all knowledge tested through the lived experience of observation and experimentation.

Assault on America, Day 481: Round and round COVID-19 goes, but it stops at state bailouts

While it’s not possible to predict exactly where the coronavirus conundrum stops, we at least recognize where it started (China) and what we shouldn’t be doing (dumping federal money on state and local governments) to beat it in the interim. With the world changing before our eyes, someone needs to mind the store.

Rep. Thomas Massie Defends The Constitution… Again

Principled limited government constitutional conservative Rep. Thomas Massie once again bucked the DC  Uniparty to demand Congress follow the Constitution and its own rules. The way we see it Rep. Massie is another frontline hero of this epidemic. Just as doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers are trying to quell the coronavirus epidemic, Rep. Massie is on the frontlines trying to quell the epidemic of anti-constitutional government that is threatening the life of our Republic.

Conservative Leaders Stand With 'Get America Back To Work' Governors

Governors in Georgia, Texas, Mississippi, Florida, South Carolina, Alaska, and Tennessee have begun announcing phased re-openings of their states and communities, allowing people to choose to return to work, go shopping, purchase services, and attend religious services, and once again exercise their rights and judgments as citizens. The conservative leaders of the Conservative Action Project applaud the thoughtful leadership of these governors.

Assault on America, Day 478: WARNING! Scam artist Dems force leftist lunacy on America!

It doesn’t take a genius to see the American public’s being scammed by a lot of deceitful political swindlers during the coronavirus panic. As the time nears for some of us to reopen our businesses and start leading “normal” lives again, we’ll need to watch out for the scammers and their ruthless schemes to abolish our freedoms.

Is Sweden’s Problem Coronavirus or Immigration?

After the Swedish government chose not to shut down the country in response to the Wuhan virus empidemic our friend David Franke took a deep dive into the mortality statistics for Sweden and other European countries and made a shocking discovery: mortality per million during this epidemic may be driven more by cultural differences attributable to mass immigration from the Middle East and Africa than it is by government lockdown policies.
