2020 Election

No, Chief Justice Roberts Cannot Issue Subpoenas

Only Senators may identify a witness to be called and no witnesses may be called unless the Senate specifically votes to allow a motion to be filed regarding whether the witness issue will even be debated. No matter how hard the Democrats try to spin this to influence the media narrative, and Chief Justice Roberts. the bottom line is that 51 Senators will decide who – if any – witnesses will be called.

Assault on America, Day 392: Hold your Iowa bets, every horse in the 2020 Dem field is a nag

Bernie Sanders would be dreadful as president. But would he be more appalling than Biden, Warren, Buttigieg or Klobuchar? At best, there’re slight differences between all of them. The chances of an Iowa “shocker” probably aren’t good this year -- but every one of the Democrats is truly alarming.

Will Democrats Take Up Arms To Remove 'Dictator' Trump Or Are They All Talk?

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

If Trump is a dictator, why do you want to disarm the American people so the only one with guns is…Dictator Trump? Whatever, let’s focus. Okay, maybe you don’t have any guns like real men. Let’s assume you can find some guns. Now you need to water the kale bush of liberty with the blood of patriots. Okay, you’ll probably want to find another word than “patriots” since the term “patriots” upsets you – but because Trump is a “dictator,” we’re obviously in an extreme situation that calls for extreme measures.  It’s totally time to figuratively fire on Ft. Sumter again, Democrats. Maybe this time it will work out better for you. Pick up a weapon or shut the hell up.

Bolton Is Irrelevant

The toll-free Capitol Switchboard number (1-866-220-0044), we urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Senators to demand that if John Bolton or any other witnesses are called in the impeachment trial of President Trump, Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, fake whistleblower Eric Ciaramella and Adam Schiff should be among the first witnesses called.

Don’t Be Surprised If Bernie Wins Iowa Next Week

Every winner of the Democrat Iowa Caucus in the last 30 years, with one exception, has gone on to be the Democrat nominee. If Bernie gets the win in Iowa we should all remember that Bernie Sanders is a hardcore revolutionary, not a lovable but crusty old grandpa. If Bernie becomes the nominee, it will truly be a battle against socialism and what the Democrats are doing in California, Virginia, and New York.

Assault on America, Day 391: Democrats aren’t the only ones counting on a yuge Iowa turnout

Agricultural interests in places like Iowa and Ohio recognize administration policies are paying off. And that’s the reason why voters will show up on Caucus Night even if they already know the outcome. Like with the Democrat presidential hopefuls, Trump’s 2020 effort kicks off in Iowa. It’s the start of something good.

Trump Defense Team: Nine Key Facts Democrats Hid

Given that few Americans, even stalwart conservative CHQ readers, entered Saturday's TV “Death Valley” to watch the Trump defense team’s opening presentation, we think pulling out the nine key points made by White House deputy counsel Michael Purpura will help readers understand exactly where President Trump’s defense team is headed.

Impeach Democrat Judges Who Welcome Jihadis And Welfare Grifters To America

Democrat federal district judges keep overreaching to impose their own “progressive” policy preferences on the President. At some point there must be consequences for this behavior, but don’t look for impeachment to be an option. House Democrats are too busy making up a case against President Trump to look at real impeachable offenses by liberal district court judges.

Assault on America, Day 390: Sizeable fissures emerge in the media’s Democrat unity wall

With the impeachment trial droning on in Washington and the Iowa caucuses only a couple weeks away, Democrats will be hard pressed to maintain some semblance of togetherness heading into a very stressful few months. Will Bernie Sanders’ attacks on Joe Biden have an effect? We’ll soon find out.

A Copious Compendium Of Schiff’s Lies

With the establishment media in a disgusting bromance with Democrat impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff, we thought we’d wrap-up the first few days of the impeachment farce – we mean Senate trial – by collecting as many of Schiff’s lies as we could find into one well-sourced document.

Have Sara Carter And Sen. Chuck Grassley Got FBI Spy Stefan Halper Cornered?

Sara Carter’s reporting and Senator Grassley’s oversight investigation of ONA spending on questionable “research” contracts are slowly putting Stefan Halper and his paymaster, ONA Director James Baker, in a corner. Sooner or later one of them is going to have to come clean about their role in the Obama administration’s spying on the Trump campaign.

Assault on America, Day 387: To Trump’s foes, great victories and progress aren’t presidential

Common sense is in scarce supply in our times when Democrats and #NeverTrumpers cite Trump’s behavior as causing the sorry state of American politics today. Blaming Trump for his own impeachment is akin to condemning an innocent man because you don’t like his haircut. It’s a lesson Trump’s critics should’ve learned by now.

Donald Trump May Be America’s Greatest Right-to-Life President

Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband, who heads the Trump Justice Department Civil Rights Division, filed a brief asserting that, "Ohio’s Antidiscrimination Law affirms that people with Down syndrome have lives worth living and protecting." The brief, for the first time we are aware of, argues that the unborn have federal civil rights that must be protected.

The March For Life Is Friday, But Battle For Life Will Continue In SCOTUS

In March the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in June Medical Services LLC vs. Gee. This case asks the Court to uphold Louisiana’s “Unsafe Abortion Protection Act.” In stark contrast to the Obama administration, President Trump's lawyers have submitted a brief and will argue in support of this pro-life law.

Assault on America, Day 386: God-given rights, Democrats, and the meaning of peaceful protest

These are strange times when the government fears the rights-respecting public and declares a “State of Emergency” when groups of law-abiding citizens exercise their freedoms. Virginia serves as a shining example for the rest of the country on how bad things will happen when Democrats assume the reins of power.

House impeachment will be a 'permanent stain' on Dems' legacy

Cal Thomas, Washington Times

Mr. Trump’s call to Ukraine’s president, which is at the heart of the impeachment articles, does not meet the standard of seriously harming the public or compromising the president’s ability to do his job as shown by the China trade deal and the trade agreement between the United States, Mexico and Canada, both signed and passed days after impeachment. Mrs. Pelosi summed up the true motives of Democrats when she said that regardless of what the Senate does, impeachment will be a “permanent stain” on President Trump’s legacy. In fact, the stain will be on Democrats. It is Democrats who have plotted ways to reverse the will of voters who elected Mr. Trump. It is Democrats who fear he will be overwhelmingly re-elected in November.

Mitch McConnell And The Democrats’ Strange Confusion About Impeachment

So far it looks like united Senate Republicans, with McConnell’s firm leadership, are prepared to face down the Democrats’ demands to pursue the President beyond the facts already in the record and put fairness, even-handedness and historical precedent ahead of the outrageous partisanship that is driving House Democrats to tear the country apart in their effort to overturn the 2016 election.

There’s A Gulag Or Guillotine In Your Future If Bernie Wins

Another Bernie Sanders Field Organizer, Martin Weissgerber, was caught on camera by Project Veritas celebrating Stalin's Gulags and advocating violence against Sanders’ political opponents. “I’ll straight up get armed,” Martin Weissgerber said on the video. “I want to learn how to shoot, and go train. I’m ready for the f**king revolution, bro. I’m telling you. Guillotine the rich.”

Assault on America, Day 385: Inauguration Day is less than a year away. Will it be Trump X 2?

With impeachment in the rearview mirror, Trump can then go back to tweeting about falling unemployment and foreign policy and energy production and advancing the country’s economic standing. And trade deals. Or continuing to crackdown on illegal immigration. It’s the stuff of victory, isn’t it? We’ll see on Inauguration Day next year.

Women, the White House, and Halitosis

Daniel Oliver, The American Spectator

Elizabeth “Feathers” Warren used to be in favor of charter schools, but that position is not a winning position for anyone seeking the endorsement, money, and votes of members of the teachers’ unions. Warren caved like a teepee in a rain squall. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, under the hateful, racist Donald Trump, black unemployment is at its lowest level ever. If that’s the product of racial discrimination, we might be forgiven for wanting more of it. In a tight election, every factor makes a difference. Republicans should be happy Democrats are so woke. Transgendered mixed-race ex-convict cyclopic vegan Rosicrucians tend not to win elections, whether or not they have halitosis. And 2020 is not likely to be an exception.
