2020 Election

Assault on America, Day 594: Joe ‘n Kamala, Day 1: Viruses & the Post Office by infomercial

Democrats gathered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (or wait, no they didn’t) to make their case to Americans in the 2020 election. We heard a lot about COVID-19, a lot about how great Joe Biden is and even a healthy smattering of cheerleading for the United States Post Office. What was missing? Unity.

Weatherman Fired For Accurately Reporting Which Way The Wind Is Blowing

Everyone complains about the weather, but nobody does anything about it, is an old gag attributed to Mark Twain, but it turns out, as on-air personality and University of Washington professor Cliff Mass discovered, if you do try to do anything about it you will get fired, at least if you work at NPR.

Kamala Harris Is An Anchor Baby, Not A ‘Natural Born Citizen’ Of The United States

The circumstances of Kamala Harris’s birth amount to birth tourism where the child is born in the geographic confines of the United States for the sole purpose of obtaining American citizenship and then whisked off to another country, only to return when and if being an American is economically advantageous. That leads us to conclude Harris 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 593: The boring Joe & Kamala show to be four days of Trump bashing

In the age of COVID-19, this week’s Democrat convention is certain to be like no other. There are plenty of storylines -- will Joe Biden stay awake? Will Kamala Harris be able to convince people she really is a warm, likeable human being? Does anyone care? Can Democrats go two minutes without digging into Donald Trump? We’re about to find out.

Did Biden Just Paint Himself into a Corner?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

People want their cops back, and leftist politicians and police are coming into increasing conflict. Undeniably, Trump has his problems. But it is not certain that Biden's sheltering in his basement and issuing his milquetoast responses to Portland, Seattle and the shootings, lootings and killings in Chicago, will prevail on Nov. 3 over Trump's boisterous campaign call to crack down on criminals, go back to school, get back to work and "play ball." Biden-Harris looks like a ticket content to sit on its lead and ride to victory in November, the way Governor Dewey did in 1948.

Democrats Are Waging War Against Tradition and the Constitution

Victor Davis Hanson, PJ Media

To change the U.S. Constitution is hard—and by intent. Efforts to change time-honored rules for short-term gain are becoming more common. Sanctuary cities nullify federal immigration law to empower illegal immigration. The nonenforcement of laws against rioting and looting has become common in big cities. The First Amendment is inert on college campuses. The left should beware. Politics are volatile and often change. When Democrats destroy longstanding rules for short-term advantage, they may regret it when they too are in need of sober traditions and the U.S. Constitution.

Coup porn: Resistance sees military removing Trump from office

Byron York, Washington Examiner

November represents the final constitutionally prescribed means of removing the president. At the moment, the polls give Biden a substantial lead. If Biden wins (even if it comes after a vote-counting process that is long and rocky), a reasonable look at Trump's history suggests he will leave office. But for some, there could be something unsatisfying about a scenario in which a hated president simply loses and leaves. So, coup porn has appeared. Perhaps for some people, it fills a deep-seated need. But for others, it is a terrifying glimpse of the abandonment of principles.

Would the Military Side with Leftist Tyranny or with America?

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

We know we cannot trust this generation of generals to stand up for freedom, but I’d like to think that a good portion of the troops would refuse to enter civilian politics in favor of the anti-American left. Yet, I would have also liked to think that we’d never see law enforcement officers eagerly obeying the fascist decrees of liberal poohbahs. The sight of overeager Barney Fifes hassling citizens about piehole thongs made it clear that for some people oaths come behind the giddy joy of power and keeping their pensions. So, the question is, what will our troops do?

Kamala Harris: Advocate for Injustice

Steven Greenhut, The American Spectator

I’ve been writing about Harris since the state’s voters promoted her from San Francisco district attorney to state attorney general, and will boil down everything you should know in only two points. First, as a top prosecutor she strongly opposed the kind of criminal justice reforms that Democrats now support. Second, Harris used her power as attorney general to advance partisan interests rather than promote fairness — something that AGs are, at some level, supposed to do. When Harris had her hands on the levers of power, she didn’t use them to promote fairness or justice.

Beware the 'Secret Trump Voters'; they're out there despite the polls

Joseph Curl, Washington Times

A recent survey found there may be “secret Trump supporters” in at least one swing state who could tilt the election toward the president. The notion behind the secret Trump voter is simple: With the media bashing the president daily — going so far as to call him, and by extension his supporters, racist — some don’t want to face the scorn of supporting him. My guess is that they’re still out there — and more angry than ever. They may not show up in all the polls, but they will turn up on Election Day to cast ballots. Democrats dismiss the secret Trump voters at their peril.

Dr. James Dobson: America's Civil Wars - Then And Now (Part 3 of 3)

In the final part of this 3 part series Dr. Dobson says, "I plead with you to register and vote in this presidential election. I won't try to tell you who to vote for because you can figure it out for yourselves. But I will suggest how you might evaluate the situation we face. I'll close with seven critical issues that have stunning significance for the nation. Please think hard about them, and then go to the polls."

Sign The Philadelphia Statement: Stand for Free Speech and Stop Cancel Culture

One of the key points the Philadelphia Statement makes that prompted us to lend our name and wholehearted support is this: "...we must be willing to trust that bad ideas will be corrected not through censorship but through better arguments.” Our job at CHQ is to make those “better arguments” on behalf of conservative principles and to boldly take to the public square to explain and argue on behalf of our conservative values, principles, and policy judgements.

Assault on America, Day 590: Guilt consumed Dems and the meaning of a Gettysburg speech

It's sad to see how much the concept of guilt -- real or imagined -- drives the agenda of the Democrat Party today. From Joe Biden feeling obligated to choose an African-American female as his running mate to ripping President Trump for the possibility of delivering his acceptance speech at Gettysburg, liberals are consumed with shame. Where will it lead them?

Dr. James Dobson: America's Civil Wars - Then And Now (Part 2 of 3)

During the revolution of the 1960s, I recall a ubiquitous bumper sticker that read, "What if they gave a war and nobody came?" It was a catchy phrase that made sense to those who opposed the Vietnam War. But my reaction to it then and now is "What if they gave a war and only one side came?" That question keeps me awake at night because there are multiple millions of passive Americans out there today, many of them Christians, who are clueless about what is happening to their homeland.

Kamala Harris Is Hillary Clinton Without The Charm

The Democrats’ choice of Senator Kamala Harris as Joe Biden’s running mate and presumptive replacement as President is a truly frightening proposition for America, and particularly America’s Catholics and cultural conservatives. As Attorney General of California, Ms. Harris made her reputation with the activist Far Left by persecuting pro-life conservatives, such as David Daleiden, and cultural and economic conservative non-profit organizations, such as the Americans for Prosperity Foundation.

Assault on America, Day 589: Dems terrified COVID-19 fear flame will die out before November

It's hard enough to focus Americans’ attention on political matters for more than a few days let alone months like Democrats are attempting to do with the COVID-19 pandemic panic. Sooner or later sensible people figure out that the world isn’t coming to an end and getting sick means getting sick -- and getting well in most cases. In 2020, voters demand more; Trump should give it to them.

Hidin' Biden

Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

Americans are not watching a normal campaign. Instead, we are the audience for a made-by-media performance that might be titled Hidin’ Biden. Whether this is a comedy or a tragedy depends on whether they actually get away with it. If it turns out the polls are wrong, and Trump gets reelected, we can laugh at the farcical attempt of the media to foist the Biden presidency on us. On the other hand, maybe the electorate really is stupid enough to fall for this transparent scam, in which case the media will have the last laugh — a triumph for Landslide Joe, and a tragedy for America.

The Real World Reasserts Itself

Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News

What has happened across much of America, was predicted. People watch their leaders in city after city fail to keep the peace and restore order as protesters riot at will, and they make plans to move out. In the suburbs and country, they quietly observe the inability of cops to quell the violence, and they buy guns. While the right backs Trump's stand for law and order, the ultimate battle here may be between liberal Democrats elected to, and failing to, run the cities, and the radical left and Marxists who welcome their failure as they intend to kick the liberals down the stairs.

Why Do Our Intelligence Agencies Keep Lying to Us?

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

It defies common sense that either the Chinese or the Russians would remotely prefer Trump for president over the increasingly painful-to-watch, listless Biden. Vladimir Putin may be a lot of things, but he’s not senile. What’s going on here? Where did this government report come from? Cui bono? Who’s behind it? Was it the deep state again? More than anything, the Russians want to stir things up, get us at each other’s throat via disinformation. Lately, they’ve been doing a helluva job. I still wish this whole rancid system would be blown up. Very little of it is worth preserving.

Dr. James Dobson: America's Civil Wars - Then And Now (Part 1 of 3)

Dr. James Dobson says the choices we make on November 3rd will send this nation down one of two dramatically different paths. The wrong decision will be catastrophic. Dr. Dobson begins by quoting Newt Gingrich, who said recently that the next election will be "the most important since 1860." He also warned that if we appease or ignore the violence and anarchy occurring in the streets, it might be the end of civilization as we have known it. Those are sobering words coming from a man who has stood at the pinnacle of national power.
