Donald Trump

Fear Porn Decision-Making

These stay-at-home orders from the Governors of Maryland and Virginia and similar ones issued in other jurisdictions, have been taken solely on the governors’ authority, based on one thing: Fear Porn. Fear-based decision-making is destroying the country and the economy; it is time for our leaders to stop watching the Fear Porn and to set some procedures and deadlines to get America back to work.

Assault on America, Day 454: Bunker-down Joe and the jealous media default on coronavirus

Amidst the 24/7 news cycle on coronavirus, not many people care about nor hear what Joe Biden has to say about leadership and the appropriate response to the situation. Biden could’ve easily taken a supportive role on the issue, but he didn’t. In contrast, Trump looks presidential and in command. And voters recognize the difference.

Is The Constitution Worth Dying For?

The Second Amendment, the First Amendment, the Fifth Amendment, the Fourteenth Amendment and the rest of the Constitution are unequivocal and living in a free society involves accepting certain risks. How about instead of using the coronavirus epidemic to suspend the Constitution we all act like responsible citizens, stay home and self-isolate if we are at risk, wash our hands, sanitize common surfaces, such as door knobs and grocery carts, get ourselves checked if we feel ill and keep our liberty.

Rep. Thomas Massie Was Right

If we accept that our elected leaders can ignore what some have sneeringly called constitutional niceties at this early stage of the epidemic response we can only imagine how much worse for constitutional liberty things are going to get, but by that time it will be too late to thank Rep. Thomas Massie for his principled warnings and objections to this massive assault on the Constitution and our federal system of limited government and ordered liberty.

Assault on America, Day 453: Joe Biden’s China syndrome will sink his shaky presidential hopes

There’s lots to complain about China in these difficult times, and as Mark Twain famously said about the weather, no one was doing anything about it. That all changed when Donald Trump ran for and won the presidency, and he’ll continue to hold Chinese leaders accountable for their complicity in the coronavirus pandemic.

Trump’s Strategic Foresight Is Being Put to the Test

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

President Donald Trump will have to possess the confidence to see how the world’s greatest economy, greatest medical talent, greatest military, and greatest energy and food production can all be marshaled in a symphonic fashion. That correct formula could fend off a potentially biblical plague without destroying the largest economy in history. If Trump exhibits such cunning and wisdom, then he can balance the consensus of his medical experts that the virus is existentially dangerous with the warnings of his economic advisers that shutting down a multi-trillion-dollar economy can become even more ruinous — and lethal — for Americans.

The Red Chinese Aim To Use The Wuhan Virus To Win Their War Against America

Red China has long aimed to replace the Dollar as the world’s reserve currency and Wall Street and the US sovereign bond market as the world’s economic safe havens. The Wuhan virus may be a natural mutation, or a virus that jumped from an animal to humans, or it may be an escaped bio-weapon, but whatever its origin the Red Chinese aim to take advantage of the havoc wreaked by the COVID-19 epidemic to win their long war against America.

$2 Trillion Not Enough: Democrat Gov. Cuomo Wants You To Bail Out New York

The toll-free Capitol Switchboard number (1-866-220-0044), we urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Senators and Representative to demand that not one penny of your federal tax dollars go to replace lost tax revenue for the state of New York or any other state or local government.

Assault on America, Day 450: In COVID-19’s wake, fiscal sanity is demanded, not requested

States have the leeway to set their own guidelines on dealing with the coronavirus conundrum. Sooner or later the nation’s economic health must be given its due consideration, largely because Congress can’t keep assembling multi-trillion-dollar aid packages. The future has arrived and we can’t afford to dismiss it.

From President Trump, An Admirable Tweet

R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator

President Trump tweeted late Sunday night that “We cannot let the cure be worse than the problem itself.” And he went on,  “At the end of the 15-day period, we will make a decision as to what way we want to go” (all caps in the original). My spies tell me the president has been listening to the right people in and around the White House. America is not a hospital ward. America is a vast country with the most successful economy ever. It is a capitalist economy. From time to time it is hit by unforeseen misfortunes. This time it was hit by an unforeseen virus, but the economy must go on. We need not destroy our economy over this pandemic.

Is President Trump’s Optimism About Reopening America Justified?

We agree with President Trump that America should be reopened for business sooner rather than later, but the only way for that to work is for all Americans to act to mitigate the transmission of this new disease to their vulnerable neighbors and family members. Go to 15 Days To Slow The Spread, follow the guidelines, and prepare to discipline yourself to keep following the hygiene guidelines once the lockdown begins to come off.

When Evil Meets Stupid

It should probably not surprise us that the latest gambit Far Left progressives have deployed against Donald Trump is to blame him for some of the dumb things desperate people have done to try to protect themselves from coronavirus. The most notable, and truly evil, example of this phenomena is the media and Democrat politician reaction to the sad fate of an Arizona couple.

Assault on America, Day 449: Arrogant Dems ignored the ‘duty to rescue’ at their own peril

There is a duty to aid citizens when circumstances place them in positions they can’t control and they’ll suffer grave harm if actions aren’t done quickly to rescue them. In most cases help is a common sense call, something Democrats are either too arrogant -- or too selfish -- to understand. Americans are watching closely.

Pelosi And Schumer’s Plan To Kill The Republican Party And Conservative Movement

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
The election law changes Democrats are demanding as the price of moving President Trump's coronavirus stimulus package must be confronted with unwavering, no-compromise opposition. Make no mistake about it, these election law changes are designed to make sure Republicans never again achieve a congressional majority and that no Republican, and certainly no conservative-populist like Donald Trump, can ever again be elected president.

Conservative Leaders: Public Health Measures Must Still Protect Constitutional Rights of Americans

The public health crisis facing the country is unprecedented, and a whole of government approach is underway. However, using this crisis as a justification to violate the basic civil liberties of Americans is unconscionable, and in no way justified. A federal shelter-in-place order should be avoided at all costs. Public health must be protected, but so, too, should the rights of Americans under the Constitution.

Assault on America, Day 448: Has coronavirus forever altered Trump’s approach to politics?

Time and circumstances will reveal whether President Trump’s new, more restrained public persona lasts throughout the coming presidential campaign. Through necessity, politics has been placed on hold until the coronavirus runs its due course, which leaves a lot of folks wondering if we might’ve seen the last of the “old” Trump.

Democrats Are Playing For All The Chips

Pelosi and Schumer are holding up relief for millions of working Americans, small business employers and essential industries on the premise that Republicans will cave and give them the tools to steal the next election. The Democrats’ desperate gamble that by holding up the coronavirus relief bill they can extort political concessions that will guarantee them victory in the November 2020 election must not be allowed to succeed.

Democrats Using Wuhan Virus Panic To Subvert Second Amendment

“Never let a crisis go to waste,” has been the motivation of all Democratic Party actions during the Wuhan virus panic, so as gun sales soar due to legitimate concerns about potential civil unrest during this crisis, Democrat elected officials around the country are responding to the crisis by trying to subvert the Second Amendment.

Assault on America, Day 447: Don’t let elites use coronavirus as the means to ruin America

There is no simple solution to the dilemma of who should be helped first in the battle against COVID-19. Many need aid and there’s only so much to go around. We should resist the ruling class’s drive to deprive us of our liberties, while being especially vigilant to preserve what made America great in the first place.

When The Collectivist Cure Is Worse Than The Individual Disease

As David Horowitz once said, “Inside every Progressive is a Totalitarian screaming to get out." Republicans and conservatives must be alert to what is going on and stop joining in these mass economic shutdowns and other extraconstitutional actions that are playing into Marx’s Law of Increasing Misery. Quarantine individuals who are ill with coronavirus, treat them with drugs we now know will work and get Americans back to work!
