It’s Not A Protest, It’s Not A Riot, It’s A Revolution (Part 1 of 2)

In 1917, Lenin and Trotsky approached their revolution on two fronts; one was to paralyze the Duma – at the time the Russian equivalent of Congress, the other front was to use real or imagined outrages against innocent parties to create civil unrest and sympathy for their revolutionary cause. In 2020 that role is being played by the death of George Floyd and the Marxist organizations Black Lives Matter and Antifa.

Trump And Barr vs ANTIFA and the Democrats

President Trump and Attorney General Barr have said the violence instigated and carried out by Antifa and other similar groups in connection with the rioting is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly. The problem for Attorney General Barr is not identifying the low level cannon fodder on the streets, it is that among that among those instigating and coordinating the violence are sitting members of Congress and their families and the children of the Governors who are supposed to be quelling the riots.

Assault on America, Day 516: How Colonial Williamsburg could (again) free us from tyranny

The answers to present day challenges and dilemmas aren’t always garnered from contemporary proposals and solutions, and they’re definitely not found among today’s nanny-state governing authorities. In dealing with the coronavirus, perhaps we should look back to a time and place where liberty was honored and valued. What do you think?

Democrats Fear Prosperity

Scott McKay, The American Spectator

Democrat governors are insisting on keeping restrictions in place long beyond what the data would suggest. They’re the ones insisting that everyone wear a mask, more as a test of the subservience of the public than as a public health measure. Those masks are good for one thing, which is to symbolize the fear people are supposed to feel as a result of the virus. Democrats are trying to keep the economy closed because it’s more important to beat Trump in November than for the country to succeed. You can call that bad faith, or you can call it economic treason — call it what you want. But don’t call it a conspiracy theory.

This Election Is Republicans v. China – Oops, I Mean Democrats

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

The Democratic Party has a long tradition of hating the United States. Its goal for the last half-century has been to supervise the decline of America as a world power, and the fact that the Chinese communists take good care of their friends makes it easier. There is zero doubt that the Chinese government is already all-in on a Biden puppet presidency because it knows it can rely on him and Dems to place Xi’s interests ahead of America's. They’ll deny it, of course. But here’s the hard and indisputable truth: This November, you can vote for the Republican Party, or you can vote Chinese Communist Party under another name.

Assault on America, Day 513: Dopey Joe Biden and the political skill game he just can’t master

Joe Biden is one of the luckiest men in America. In spite of a decided lack of political talents he’s almost secured the Democrat nomination for president. As the party’s “next-in-line”, voters chose the safe option, believing Joe would be a sure-bet to best Donald Trump in November. Instead, Biden can’t keep his closet-racist foot out of his mouth.

Assault on America, Day 512: Identity politics is the prison Grampa Joe can’t hope to escape

Democrats believe identity politics is the key to selecting the perfect running mate for Grampa Joe Biden, but it’s really a fortified jail cell without possibility of escape. There isn’t a woman on earth that will satisfy every Democrat interest group, so instead of making everyone happy, Biden’s choice will tick people off.

Assault on America, Day 511: Exploring the difference between shouldn’t and can’t be done

There’s a definite difference between what shouldn’t and what can’t happen. Opening up the economy is no longer an option, it’s a necessity. The rest is up to individuals to decide. And if a new wave of sicknesses returns in the fall/winter, there’s no going back to lockdown status. It’s never been more clear -- it can’t be done.

Assault on America, Day 510: This November, vote like life depends on it -- because it might

Democrats and Republicans will claim that their governors’ coronavirus responses helped save lives, but both sides can’t be right and statistics don’t lie. Now more than ever we see evidence that elections have consequences. Think about it before you cast your vote this November. The life you save might be your own.

An Aristocracy of Losers

Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

Victims are the aristocrats of 21st-century America. To be a victim is to be exempt from criticism, to be empowered with moral authority, so that anyone who refuses to kowtow to you is condemned as a racist, a sexist, or some other kind of bigot. Democrats have embraced this concept because it makes them feel good about themselves and also because they believe it can help them win elections. Competition is fierce, because there are too many victims and not enough gigs. Only a lucky few can be anointed “rising stars,” elected to the Aristocracy of Losers, and celebrated the way the liberal media celebrates Stacey Abrams.

Assault on America, Day 506: Nancy Pelosi’s $3 trillion slush fund disguised as virus relief

It doesn’t take a genius to wonder why Democrats are working so hard to keep the economy closed -- they’re doing it so people will blame Trump and Republicans for the worst of the damage. With COVID-19 cases and deaths steadily declining, it will be much harder for the bigger government party to get its way. Have a pleasant and meaningful Memorial Day.

Assault on America, Day 505: America’s youth experience Great Awakening coronavirus-style

Every day it seems we’re awakening to a new set of surprises during the coronavirus pandemic and resultant economic panic. Recent graduates will have their own special challenges in the coming weeks and months and they don’t need more fearmongering. Now more than ever, we need the optimism of President Trump.

Assault on America, Day 504: Will the ghost of 'The Bern' haunt Grampa Joe on Election Day?

Both parties’ prospects depend on being able to turn out their bases and here’s thinking Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats will encounter more than their share of resistance from the Bernie Sanders revolutionary faction. Much damage was done during the party primaries and won’t be repaired no matter how many endorsements flow in the interim.

Why Joe Biden and the Democrats Are Going to Lose Big

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

Stuck in their basements figuratively and literally, Joe Biden and the Dems have little positive to offer. With blue collar folks losing their jobs by the millions while white collar rich Dems continue to earn their high salaries working from home, the once people’s Democratic Party is branding itself, consciously or not, as the party of elites. Trump, not Biden, turns out to be the tribune of the working class. So it’s not surprising the president has an even bigger lead in the only poll that really counts since it is still early days, the poll that has the greatest reputation for accuracy—the betting odds.

Assault on America, Day 503: Full recovery is possible in politics. The economy? We’ll see

Surveys confirm politics is taking a backseat to worries over the coronavirus pandemic, but sooner or later people will need to pay attention to the statistics and hedge bets that things will be okay. Since going “Back to the Future” isn’t an option in the real world, Americans must rely on the good sense and work ethic that brought them to 2020 in the first place.

Mail-In Ballots No Magic Bullet For Dems

David Catron, The American Spectator

CA-25 and WI-07 proved that this gimmick is no panacea for their turnout problems. The “Heroes Act” would strip the states of the power to determine how they conduct elections. It would require every state to allow “no excuse” absentee voting, provide postage-paid mail-in ballots, mandate that votes are counted up to 10 days after Election Day, and eliminate voter ID laws. Even worse, it won’t work. Mail-in voting isn’t a magic bullet that will save the Democratic Party. President Trump pronounced this bill, “DOA,” on Thursday. It’s very likely that the Democrats will arrive at November 4 in the same condition.

Assault on America, Day 502: Deliver us from fear, Chinese Communist Party virus edition

This ever-evolving nightmare must end and common sense says to err on the side of optimism and the belief our country can endure the worst of trials and pandemics. This isn’t the Black Death we’re talking about. At some point, government must trust the people, and maybe then, the people will put their fear away and start trusting the government in return.

Lockdown Logic

Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

Americans did not elect Dr. Fauci to be our Official Economic Controller, and this business of pretending that President Trump’s policy is “anti-science” because he sometimes overrules his advisers is part of the media’s lockdown logic game, which is, of course, all about politics. The same media voices telling us we’re all going to die of coronavirus because of Trump’s policies would have us believe that Joe Biden is even more of a scientific expert than Andrew Cuomo. Biden can seldom speak in coherent sentences, but electing Sleepy Joe will save us from COVID-19. Or so you might believe, if you’re a CNN viewer.

Assault on America, Day 499: Democrats to ditch convention over worries about doddering Joe

We all spend too much time worrying about things that probably will never happen. Democrats are taking their uncertainties to the extreme by (likely) canceling their quadrennial nominating convention this summer. Perhaps their fears are justified, however: President Trump is dismantling Obama’s legacy -- and they are powerless to stop it.

There’s No Proof Killing The Economy Saves Lives

The evidence is growing that lockdowns did not have the kind of life saving effect that their advocates, such as Dr. Anthony Fauci and Democrat Governor of Virginia Dr. Ralph Northam, claimed they would. We urge CHQ readers and friends to read Grading Our Governors: A Report Card on Reopening States' Economies and if your Governor has not earned an “A” or a “B” to call him or her to demand that the economy of your state be reopened.
