Live Action Proves Facebook Censorship Of Pro-Lifers

Not only did Facebook fail to get disinterested perspectives, they appear to have gone out of their way to find pro-abortion activists whose public opposition to pro-life views is indisputable. This is clear evidence of bias and discrimination against Live Action's over three million strong Facebook community members and an outrageous act of censorship on the part of Facebook.

Election 2020: Will America Be the New China?

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

From Big Tech to Hollywood to our media to our campuses to the campaign rhetoric of virtually every Democratic candidate, we are moving toward a homogenization of thought and action that is, well, Chinese communist in style and ultimately in content. Apocalyptic as it may sound, if you love freedom, election 2020 is becoming the last chance to stem the tide. There is no alternative, not even remotely. In any case, judging a politician by his or her personality is a boring and subjective enterprise. With Western civilization in the balance, voting against a candidate because you think a tweet is crude is nothing short of idiotic.

Trump Is Right on the China Threat

Ben Shapiro, The Daily Wire

The United States must be pursuing a thorough strategy of opposition to China's ambitions. Trump seems to understand this. But if he fails to articulate that to the American people, his economic war with China will fail. That's because if the American people are asked to shoulder an economic burden without being informed as to the rationale or the cost, they will rightly buck. Trump hasn't explained that the burden exists, let alone why the American people should shoulder it. With that said, at least Trump recognizes the threat China represents. The chattering class has ignored that threat, to the detriment of the United States and her allies.

Silicon Valley’s Corporate Totalitarianism Growing

The most disturbing attribute of a corporate social credit system is not that it’s invasive, but that it’s extralegal. Crimes are punished outside the legal system, which means no presumption of innocence, no legal representation, no judge, no jury, and often no appeal says tech and society commentator Mike Elgan.

Trump can see Greenland from his house

Sarah Palin, Breitbart

It’s precisely because of Greenland’s strategic location that we put our northernmost military base there. The Thule Air Force base is crucial to our nation’s missile defense system. Again, is it any wonder why China is so eager to get a foothold in Greenland? As William Seward knew when he purchased Alaska from the Russians, controlling a strategic location allows the United States to establish a forward base and prevent our enemies from doing the same. So, as a matter of national security as well as economic prosperity, it makes sense for the United States to have a strong footprint in Greenland.

Buying Greenland: Trump haters mock the idea, but China is paying attention

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

The usual panic from the jealous chattering class over Greenland once again reveals the Democrats and envious Trump haters’ biggest unforced error — constantly underestimating Donald Trump. This requires deliberately maintaining a remarkable ignorance about the economic and national security issues we face as a nation. In 2017, Greenland’s prime minister flew to China and asked, “Chinese state-run banks to finance the new commercial airports." While Democrats and resisters continue to chase their tails, it would serve them well to stop and admit that American exceptionalism is back. For everyone.

How Long Before Hong Kong Suffers Bloody Communist Crackdown?

Demands by Hong Kong citizens for freedom and government accountability represent an existential threat to the system of social credit-imposed conformity that now undergirds Communist Chinese society. The United States must be prepared to confront the Communist Chinese strongly and firmly if and when the much-anticipated crackdown comes.

Yes, China is the Greater Menace

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

For three years, the U.S. establishment has not ceased to howl about Russia’s theft of emails of the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign. Yet the greatest cybercrime of the century was Beijing’s theft in 2014 of the personnel files of 22 million applicants and employees of the U.S. government, many of them holding top-secret clearances. Undeniably, Russia is a rival. But Putin’s economy is the size of Italy’s while China’s economy challenges our own. And China’s population is 10 times that of Russia, and four times that of the USA. Manifestly, China is the greater menace. This issue is likely to decide the destiny of our relations and the future of Asia, if not the world.

Conservatives And Labor Unite Against H.R. 1044 Green Card Expansion Bill

We urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Representative (the toll-free Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044), tell your Representative American workers deserve a raise. Tell your Representative to vote NO on H.R. 1044 or any other bill that increases the importation of cheap foreign labor to compete with American workers and put downward pressure on American wages.

China Racing The U.S. To The Golden Trabant

Will 16 Psyche spawn space pirates, as R.A. Lafferty predicted in “The Golden Trabant,” or make everyone on Earth a billionaire, as the writers at RT.com seem to hope? Both of those outcomes seem doubtful, but what is certain is that the industrialization of space will disrupt the world’s economy, and that is too dangerous a power to be handed-over to Red China.

Without mining there is no 'Green Revolution'

Stephen Moore and Ann Bridges, Washington Times

How is this for rich irony: To make renewable energy at all technologically plausible, will require massive increases in the supply of rare earth and critical minerals. Without these valuable metals, there will not be more efficient 21st century batteries for electric cars, or modern solar panels. Kiss the Green New Deal and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Bernie Sanders’ utopian vision of 100 percent renewable energy goodbye. Yet for decades now, environmentalists have erected every possible barrier to mining here in America for critical minerals — which we have in great abundance. The “keep-it-in-the-ground movement” is blocking a green future and a safer planet. Do they know this? Do they care?

Anti-Trump Republican Congressman Justin Amash Earns A Primary Opponent

Rep. Amash and his family have been sketchy, if not downright deceptive about their business in Red China. Now, in the middle of President Trump's effort to protect American jobs and national security against Red Chinese attacks Amash suddenly thinks Trump should be impeached. Click here to learn more about Amash's opponent Michigan state Representative Jim Lower.

USA Wins A Battle In The Soft War With China

You may have to go to the business or tech pages to find out about it, but the news that Google has apparently withdrawn from its cooperation with Huawei is a huge win for the national security of the United States and other nations that are unwilling to place themselves under the yoke of Red China’s dystopian social credit system for ordering human affairs.

Another promise kept: Trump's toughness on China gives Potomac elites the vapors

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Mr. Trump’s escalating tariff war with China is so perfectly in keeping with his 2016 campaign. And Mr. Trump is laughing all the way to the Treasury, counting all the money coming in through his new tariffs. All the free trade “purists” in Washington scoff that this is no way to fund a country. But before the imposition of the federal income tax in 1913, trade tariffs was a primary source of income for the federal government. Sure, the federal government was smaller back then, but isn’t that the point? Anyway, is there anything more insidious and destructive to a free self-governed society than discouraging work?

The Truth About Tariffs And Red China

Donald Trump is the first President to recognize we are in a war with the Red Chinese, and the battlefield he has chosen is one that is favorable to us. We believe conservatives should support the President’s tariffs because they are among the cheapest and most effective weapons we have to win the war Red China has declared on us.

China’s Brilliant, Insidious Strategy

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

China understands the often blame-itself-first Western mind (and there is such a thing) far better than Westerners themselves do. It assumes that it will not really suffer blanket criticism for its inhuman treatment of religious minorities and dissidents, or its ruthlessness in Africa. Instead, it figures that many will side with it as victims of a Western racism that supposedly prevents Western liberals from appreciating genuine Asian efforts to join the family of nations. China is confident that it now knows the U.S. only too well, and it is mastering the political, economic, cultural, and military methods of nullifying American advantages. And it may be right.

Biden’s Alleged Financial Ties To U.S. Enemy China Overshadow His 2020 Bid

Ben Weingarten, The Federalist

If we as a nation truly care about the corrosive, destabilizing nature of foreign influence, should not we be most concerned with the greatest foreign adversary of all? Should not business leaders be presenting a united front with members of an increasingly united federal government to drive as hard a bargain as possible to fundamentally change China’s behavior, and provide real teeth to any punishment should it fail to adhere to a deal, as it has done repeatedly in the past? As the CPDC’s speakers made clear, U.S.-China policy not only deserves to be at the center of the 2020 presidential election, it must be at the center of the 2020 presidential election.

The Chinese Tortoise and the American Hare

David P. Goldman, PJ Media

The West chronically underestimates Asians, as the Russians found out at Port Arthur, the Americans at Pearl Harbor and the Yalu River, the British at Singapore, and so forth. It is fanciful to believe that any kind of American pressure can destabilize, let alone dislodge, the present regime within any calculable time horizon. But we can regain technological leadership and prove the superiority of our way of life, and degrade the credibility of the Chinese Communist Party over time. China can innovate, but we can innovate much better. We need to return with a vengeance to the strategies that won the Cold War.

We Are Going To Lose The Coming War With China

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

We need to get it through our heads that no one is going to be as dumb as Saddam was and conveniently fight us the way we want to be fought. We need a complete strategic mindset revolution, one that moves from a few super-expensive systems to many affordable ones. We need to say good-bye to legacies of the 20th century, like mostly manned combat aircraft and a few huge carrier battle groups. We need to prepare to defeat the enemy we actually face, not the enemy we want to face.

Mike Pompeo Threatens China With War

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Mike Pompeo declared any armed attack by China on a Philippine ship or plane in the South China Sea will be treated as an attack on an American ship or plane, bringing a U.S. military response. Are we now prepared to fight China over who owns and occupies Mischief Reef or Scarborough Shoal? Today, the U.S., $22 trillion in debt, has treaty commitments dating to the early Cold War to defend Japan, South Korea, the Philippines and Australia, all thousands of miles of ocean away from the USA. If Trump cannot cut back these war guarantees, who will?
