2020 Election

Could Justin Amash Cost Trump Reelection?

John Fund, National Review

You can bet that the most enthusiastic Trump supporters wouldn’t see Amash favorably, as a factor that could tilt some key swing states toward Trump rather than a Democrat. If Justin Amash runs for president as a principled libertarian who lacks Trump’s excesses, he might indeed hurt the president in key states. But if he runs as more of a reformer who wants to attack corporate welfare and question the drug war, he could attract younger voters who would normally vote Democratic. As Trump opponents jostle for a chance to convince Justin Amash to run in 2020, they should remember the old Chinese adage that you should be careful what you wish for. You might get it.

Eric Swalwell Nukes His Campaign For President

Rep. Eric Swalwell, the Far-Left California Democrat Congressman who famously reminded gun owners that the government has nuclear weapons should they choose to resist his gun confiscation schemes, is abandoning his presidential campaign. But that doesn’t mean Democrats will abandon their plans to try to confiscate your guns should they ever obtain the power to do so.

Assault on America, Day 188: Radicalism and tyranny to define the next Democrat president

Conservatives should be willing to put their money where their mouth is next year when President Trump takes on his socialistic out-of-touch Democrat opponent. Democrat presidential candidates have sworn they’ll accomplish their aims by any means necessary. Would the republic survive?

Dem 2020 task: Convince voters to overlook economy

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The president's Democratic 2020 challengers face a daunting problem: Unless there is a serious economic downturn, the answer to the are-you-better-off question will work in the president's favor, not his opponent's. Democrats hope educated voters will be susceptible to anti-Trump social pressures, to being shamed out of voting for the president. The idea is that those voters will focus on their objections to the way Trump has conducted himself in office — the tweets! — and not on the economic results of his presidency. Indeed, a number of polls have shown that a significant group of voters who are happy about the economy still plan to vote against Trump.

Assault on America, Day 187: Independence Day and the crisis in Democrat electoral confidence

Independence Day means more than an excuse to get together with friends, consume adult beverages and host outdoor barbecues. It’s a time to reflect on the value of freedom and truth -- and the threats to those precious rights we’re seeing right now from Democrats of all ages.

American Presidential Elections Are Too Long and Destructive for the Country

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Who loses in all this? The public, of course. In the endless election year (is it three out of four or four out of four?) the domestic issues of the country are barely resolved, if at all, and the foreign policy initiatives undercut and/or maligned. It's hard to believe, but the Iowa Caucus, the serious debut of campaign 2020, is not until February 3, 2020, a full seven months off. Are we enervated yet? Do we hate each other enough yet? How about postponing the campaign until Thanksgiving and allowing the country and Congress to go about their real business? The British manage their campaigns in only 60 days. Maybe we could squeeze it down to, say, 180.

The Brilliance Of Trump’s Fourth of July Bash

Researchers at Harvard University have found that the July Fourth holiday commemorating the announcement of the Declaration of Independence may still be serving its intended purpose – promoting patriotism. And the even better news is that celebrating Independence Day also seems to make people vote Republican.

Happy Firearms Appreciation Day

We here at CHQ like to think of July 4th as “Firearms Appreciation Day’” because without firearms, and the American prowess with them, there would be no independence to celebrate. The war that turned the Declaration of Independence into a reality was a remarkable triumph that would have been inconceivable had not every man been armed with his own gun.

Assault on America, Day 182: Would Portland's authorities care if Antifa killed someone?

There’s virtually no end to the hypocrisy propounded by the left. And it’s not just the 2020 Democrat presidential candidates doing the holier-than-thou value judging -- it’s anyone arguing people deserve punishment for their political beliefs. Where does it go from here? We’re almost afraid to find out.

Democrats Hate It When Peace Breaks Out

Trump as a successful peacemaker on the Korean Peninsula does not help the Democrats defeat him in the 2020 election, so the Democrats and their media allies have suddenly become adverse to peace with North Korea and prefer what was known during the Cold War as brinksmanship or a reversion to the failed policies of George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

Time For A Federal Takeover Of Portland, Oregon

If President Eisenhower could send federal troops to Little Rock, Arkansas to regain order when local elected officials joined white supremacist rioters opposed to integration, then President Trump can send federal troops to Portland, Oregon to regain control of a city where local elected officials have ceded control of the streets to a Leftist terrorist organization.

Assault on America, Day 181: Joe Biden is no racist, but he’s got plenty of other disorders

Political pundits are paid big bucks to make mountains out of molehills, and that’s exactly what took place last week in raking Joe Biden over hot coals for his feeble response to Kamala Harris’s “That little girl was me” monologue. Biden’s past will follow him alright, but not because of racism.

A Lesson For Democrats From Jimmy Dean

When Jimmy Dean sells sausage, he doesn’t show his customers how the sausage is made and what goes into it – there are no pictures on TV of pigs being herded into the packing plant, killed and ground-up. Fortunately for President Trump, today's Far Left Democrats are showing their customers not only how the sausage is made, but who in America is going to be killed, ground up and stuffed into the casing if a Democrat is elected president.

Is Kamala Harris Eligible To Be President?

The argument against Ted Cruz being a "natural born" citizen went something like this: To be a “natural born” citizen, one must be born within the territory of the United States, to two citizen parents. Applying the same historical and legal arguments used against Senator Cruz to Kamala Harris it appears she is not a “natural born” citizen, rather she is more like America’s most high profile and least grateful anchor baby.

Assault on America, Day 180: Democrats are more than an obstacle to sanity, they’re a burden

Last week Democrats demonstrated they’ll stop at nothing to defeat President Trump next year, including raising phony concerns that he won’t leave office when the time comes and also by withholding money to simply execute America’s immigration laws. All in all, a shameful display.

Democrats In Debate Double Down On The Issue That Lost Them The 2016 Election

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
As New York's Cardinal Timothy Dolan said, the Democrats have “slammed the door” on Catholics, our Faith, our Church, and our traditions. Democrats are so beholden to Planned Parenthood, Far Left Hollywood celebrities and radical feminists that they are blind to the fact that their position on abortion alienates the country’s largest group of swing voters.

Sugarcoating Socialism

After Bernie’s opening it seemed like everyone in the Democratic debate, except Governor Hickenlooper, started with “I agree with Bernie” or some variation thereof. It seems that there is no problem, from income inequality, to the alleged climate crisis, to war, to unwanted pregnancy that socialism can’t cure.

Assault on America, Day 177: That’s it? America groans as filled-out Dem field fails to astound

America breathed a sigh of relief as the Democrat presidential candidates wrapped up their first “debates” of the 2020 cycle. Predictably, nothing much was ventured, nothing gained. Joe Biden will keep leading until he shoots himself in the foot -- or Democrats dump all of them and start over.

Last Night’s Fauxahontas Show

Warren’s mini biography about growing up poor in Oklahoma, and “I will fight for you” was easily the strongest close. Author Saeed Jones may have summed up last night's debate best when he tweeted, “Elizabeth Warren’s ability to remain patient and thoughtful while sharing the stage with such a diverse array of ambitious losers is commendable.”
