If you have never been to Rural King® the home, farm and general merchandise chain headquartered in Mattoon, Illinois that serves the thirteen-state area of Alabama, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, Michigan, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Florida, North Carolina, West Virginia and Virginia, this week is the time to go – and buy everything on your list – because it’s church week.

We have an idea – a principled conservative Republican Attorney General in a Red State, let’s say Texas or Indiana or Florida, should launch an investigation of Planned Parenthood, not just for excessive compensation of executives and self-dealing, but for facilitating murder and trafficking in human body parts. Then let’s make sure that conservative AG files the lawsuit to dissolve Planned Parenthood before it can spend the $45 million the organization plans to spend ahead of the 2020 elections.

It doesn’t take a 19th century French philosopher to suggest that Americans should consider the whole picture this November when they head to the voting booth to choose between Republicans and Democrats. Liberal party members and the media would prefer to make it all about Trump, but somewhere along the line, folks must realize there’s a lot more to it.

President Trump's Executive Order deferring payroll taxes is a winner for the economy and GOP election prospects. Mr. Trump has now made the election a referendum on middle-class taxes – he’s given Americans a job-creating tax cut now and can campaign on forgiving the taxes if reelected. This strategy is a game-changer for the economy and the GOP’s congressional election prospects, if Republican candidates are smart enough to embrace it.

It appears that the Leftwing oligarchs who run Silicon Valley, and especially the social media monopolists at Twitter and Facebook, keep trying to censor this Trump video. Unlike the social media giants, we want Americans to view it and judge for themselves, so please watch it and forward it to your family, friends, fellow church members, clubs and social networks if you like it too - it would be a real shame if CHQ readers and friends helped spread it and keep it live through the election.

With the party conventions set to take place in the next two weeks, Americans are enjoying the last bit of calm before the political storm. With Joe Biden announcing his running mate and forecasts of economic improvements by Election Day, we gather that the rhetorical battle is just about to commence. Grab your helmet and hit the fox hole, it will be nasty.

Our friend Morning in Nevada PAC President Adam Laxalt has alerted us to the details of the “election reform” measure Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak and the Democrat-controlled legislature rushed through in an emergency special session — on a party-line vote. Especially troubling is the way it will leave Nevada’s elections susceptible to rampant fraud this November, thanks to its radical embrace of universal mail-in voting as well as California-style “ballot harvesting.”

At every turn, we are admonished to accept the dictates of the Authorities regarding the Covid-19 epidemic. It can be intimidating to fight back when their official wisdom consumes every pixel of the Washington Post and the New York Times, of CNN and MSNBC and all the rest.  All the more important, then, to put our current Authorities into historical context.  We need to remind ourselves how the Authorities and Wise Men of any era can easily become the fools and villains of history.

Joe Biden can run from presidential debates, but he can’t hide from his record. President Trump’s detractors can hope he’ll just leave quietly before this fall’s election, but they’re plain crazy. Eventually the truth comes out, and here’s thinking Trump will emerge as the more credible candidate. And it won’t even be close.

Conservatives must come to grips with the reality that for the new radical progressive Democratic Party politics is warfare, and the only rule in war is to win. What Democrats are now doing is preparing the information warfare battlefield for the Election Day and post-Election Day chaos they plan to create to drive Donald Trump from office, whether or not Joe Biden wins the most Electoral College votes on November 3, 2020.

Over a year ago, on July 18, 2019, Senator Cruz and Senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana introduced a resolution to designate ANTIFA as a terrorist organization. So far, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has refused to bring the resolution to the floor. We urge CHQ readers and friends to watch these videos and then call Senator McConnell to demand that he bring the resolution to a vote and force the Democrats to tell America which side they are on – the side of law and order, or the side of violence, arson and terror. The tollfree Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044), call right now.

“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.

    The inner Joe Biden at 77 is turning out to be an unabashed bigot in the age of “cancel culture” and thought crimes that has apparently declared him immune from the opprobrium reserved for any such speech. Add it all up and the question is no longer whether Biden could fulfill the duties of the presidency but whether he can finish a traditional campaign over the next three months—without outsourcing his duties to a Democrat committee, or serially saying something blatantly racist, or simply disappearing to the nether world of his basement where saying nothing beats saying anything.

  • Scott McKay, The American Spectator

    Rasmussen has been polling Trump’s approval in the black community as high as the low 40s. Rasmussen’s monthly average for July had Trump at 36 percent approval. Of that 36 percent, most — 25 percent — registered strong approval. Strong approval generally coincides with electoral support. That 25 percent number has shown up since at least June. It wouldn’t be unreasonable to think a politician could get 60 percent of a group of voters who tell pollsters they strongly approve of him. Which means unless Rasmussen is dead wrong, that 15 percent number could be within reach for Trump.

  • Roger Kimball, The Epoch Times

    The coronavirus threat will continue to recede. The stock market will continue its rise even as unemployment continues to fall. There may be saber rattling, and there will certainly be teeth gnashing, by China, Russia, North Korea, Democrats, the media, and other enemies of America. But it will all be sound and fury, signifying nothing. In short, it is more and more likely that Donald Trump will be reelected President. I have thought so for a while now, at least since his magnificent speech at Mount Rushmore. His calm and compassionate actions really were a “political masterstroke.”

  • Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

    Minorities are refusing to simply line up and vote Democrat – many are walking away and moving to Trump despite Biden’s bizarre contentions regarding how black voters must be monolithically Democrat or they apparently stop being black. Trump’s taking the lead again. That’s why you see a doubling down on Democrat attempts to set up the chance to win by fraud and, if they can’t pull that off, declare his reelection victory illegitimate. You can smell their fear. The win is not a done deal. We need to play out the rest of the election like we’re behind, but just know that we aren’t.

  • Michael McKenna, Washington Times

    Despite everything that has happened in the last six months, Biden has been unable to put away the president. Team Biden has been playing prevent defense for five months now, hiding the candidate and hoping he can hold off Trump for just another 80 days. The problem with that is by allowing Trump to hang around, Biden has placed himself in a position in which the slightest mistake or hiccup on his part, or the slightest bit of good news for the president — a vaccine? unexpected economic good news? — may touch off a surge, even a modest one, for the president that may be dispositive.

  • Ted Cruz and Lila Rose, National Review

    The Mifeprex regimen has unleashed horrors on America’s women and children while providing no medical benefit. Pregnancy is not a disease and abortion is not health care. The abortion pill is not medicine. No child deserves to be killed by a drug, and pregnant women deserve better. FDA commissioner Hahn should acknowledge the subversion of the abortion industry and its allies, which are using a national pandemic to instigate abortion expansions that could remain long after the pandemic is over. The FDA should protect the public health of Americans and pull this lethal drug immediately.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News

    Trump must convince the country that not only is he the right man to manage America's way out of the health crisis, economic crisis and racial crisis that were none of his doing, but that Biden has lost the physical rigor and mental capacity to cope with the triple crisis. And the best, and perhaps last, place to do that is in the debates. The left understands this, which is why we suddenly see media suggestions that Biden should cancel the debates. A terrified left wants Joe Biden to coast to victory, and many on that side share a belief that this may be the only way he gets there.

  • David Catron, The American Spectator

    Are Biden and Dukakis really comparable? Most members of the political class would probably say, “No.” Yet the liabilities of the former in 2020 involve the same issues that dogged the latter in 1988 — mental fitness to handle the duties of the presidency, difficulty connecting with the minority voters without whose support he can’t win, and the willingness to brand any opponent a racist who dares to bring up “law and order.” A few weeks ago, Biden led Trump by double digits in the RealClearPolitics average of general election polls. As of last Thursday, his lead is at 6.4 and falling.

  • Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

    It should be obvious. I don’t believe Joe Biden is mentally competent to be the leader of the free world. The thought of him negotiating with Xi Jinping or his successor more than makes me cringe. It fills me with dread for our future. But I could be wrong. It wouldn’t be the first time—or the fifth. The way to put this to rest and reassure us (I’m pretty certain “us” also includes leaders around the world, notably the allies he constantly references) would be for him to pass a mental competency test. He wouldn’t even need the thirty out of thirty that Trump got, just a decent grade.

  • Roger Kimball, American Greatness

    Joe Biden is toast. Already the polls, rigged though most of them are, are tightening. Trump is calmly stealing the Democrats’ thunder, issuing executive orders on everything from payroll tax cuts to instituting a moratorium on evictions. Coronavirus hysteria has, at least for now, prevented the president from deploying his biggest vote-getter, the huge rally. But he has adapted and is outflanking poor Biden on every front. The curious thing is that the Democrats do not seem to have twigged to this reality. They look straight ahead but cannot see what is staring them in the face.

  • Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

    There’s going to be some lame excuse for why he won’t debate. Maybe Biden and the rest will try to impose ridiculous conditions on the debate, like “Trump cannot speak” or “Trump must be fact-checked in real time during the debate by a panel of neutral, objective truth tellers from MSNBCNN, the WaPo and the NYT.” Maybe they will just announce that Biden refuses to share a stage with the President because to do so “will serve to normalize his racism, sexism, transphobia, Islamophobia, cisgender normativity, and more racism.” Trump will spend October tweaking Hidin’ Biden on Twitter.

  • Charles Hurt, Washington Times

    For Democrats, the era of American Exceptionalism is over. The fear-mongering and demagoguery are enough to choke a mule. At least it would choke the mule that symbolized the old Democrat Party. Even the Democrat Party of just a few elections ago. These people today? They have gone plumb mad. The patients have taken siege of the asylum. It is literally impossible to take these people seriously. You would not trust them to change a flat tire on your bicycle, let alone run the government. Poor Joe Biden today. He is either too dumb or too out of it to realize what his party has become.

  • George Neumayr, The American Spectator

    In the recent discussion about what ails the media, which has been prompted by a flurry of firings and resignations, the blind lead the blind. The diagnoses ignore the most obvious one: the media’s primary commitment to liberalism over real news. The media, for ideological reasons, routinely ignores stories that would generate good ratings. Take the American media’s complete lack of interest in the body-cam footage of the George Floyd arrest. Worried that it would complicate their preferred narrative, American journalists made no attempt to get their hands on it. It fell to the British media to get that story.

  • Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

    It appears to be the first time a corporation stood up against the woke mob and not only refused to do as ordered, but pushed back by announcing they were rejecting the obviously ridiculous accusations. It’s likely the support they received from their customer base is what empowered them to stay on their feet, and to reject the idiotic allegation of racism. It does remind us the power of the mob exists only when they are the singular voice heard. There’s a reason the left has worked long and hard to intimidate people into silence — they know their agenda would collapse if ever confronted.

  • Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

    The 2016 election, with nominees age 70 and 69, elevated the actuarial odds of a vice president succeeding to the presidency to the highest level in history. This year, the R and D nominees turn 74 and 78, and the actuarial odds are accordingly grimmer.Joe Biden, who has abundant experience (36 years in the Senate and eight as vice president) and is said to be wary of an ambitious vice president, may be tempted to name someone with little or no experience. Balancing the ticket that way wouldn’t be unprecedented, but it might be unnerving to voters with a sense of the actuarial odds.
