Assault on America, Day 484: Media hypocrites overreact to wrong kind of government shutdown

As the coronavirus episode has revealed, Democrats and their media enablers don’t act the least bit bothered by keeping America’s business doors closed as long as it plays to their political prospects. It’s a far cry from their concerns for federal employees during government shutdowns. How do they explain the distinction?

“Occam's Razor” – The Case of the Chinese Corona Virus

In this CHQ exclusive, Richard Lawless, author of Capitol Hill's Criminal Underground applies Occam's Razor to the corona virus epidemic. Sometimes the most obvious explanation is the right one. Lawless believes that is the case when it comes to the corona virus pandemic.  One must ask, who would benefit the most from a global pandemic with crushing economic consequences? Where does the evidence take us?

Assault on America, Day 483: Dopey Joe’s make- believe presser not a dream -- it’s a nightmare

If Joe Biden truly were president it’s safe to say a lot of people would take a realistic look at his leadership qualities and find them lacking. It’s one thing to isolate yourself in a coronavirus-proof bunker; it’s quite another to face the hostile media every day and still come out looking like a winner. That’s President Trump.

Are You Ready To Sue Red China For Your Wuhan Virus Losses?

The toll-free Capitol Switchboard number (1-866-220-0044), we urge CHQ readers and friends to call Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to demand that they schedule hearings and pass the Cotton – Crenshaw bill to immediately end Red China’s sovereign immunity for Wuhan virus claims.

Let the Lockdown End, County by County

Grassroots protests are multiplying against the draconian stay-at-home orders, and every day brings new announcements of states ending parts of their lockdowns.  The challenge is to do it intelligently to avoid a second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our friend David Franke says the way to do that is to end the lockdowns on a county-by-county basis, as he explains in this report.

Assault on America, Day 482: Biden says Trump will delay the 2020 vote. Blatant lie or reality?

The new reality with China is yet another reason why Trump wouldn’t dream of delaying this year’s election, since Joe Biden’s dirty fingerprints are all over the subject and voters tend to have short attention spans. There’s a long way to go before November and the world is changing awful fast. Stay tuned.

Anti-Lockdown Protests And The Defiant Protestant Heart of America

Defiance of the authoritarian kings and queens of the universal lockdown order, the high priests of COVID-19 pseudo-science and the Inquisitors of the establishment media is deeply rooted in America’s cultural Calvinism and the Protestant Enlightenment. Far from being anti-science this defiance is deeply rooted in Protestant Enlightenment thinking in which all authority may be tested against the plain language of the Gospel and all knowledge tested through the lived experience of observation and experimentation.

Trump Doesn’t Owe Millions Of Dollars To Red China, But Hunter Biden Sure Raked It In

The entire point of Politico’s story – that President Trump was in debt to the Chinese – was not only wrong, it was completely false. We know it is wishful thinking, but it would be nice if just once the establishment media took a look at these potential stories and gave the Bidens the same scrutiny they give Donald Trump, his family, and other Republican officeholders and candidates.

Assault on America, Day 481: Round and round COVID-19 goes, but it stops at state bailouts

While it’s not possible to predict exactly where the coronavirus conundrum stops, we at least recognize where it started (China) and what we shouldn’t be doing (dumping federal money on state and local governments) to beat it in the interim. With the world changing before our eyes, someone needs to mind the store.

Rep. Thomas Massie Defends The Constitution… Again

Principled limited government constitutional conservative Rep. Thomas Massie once again bucked the DC  Uniparty to demand Congress follow the Constitution and its own rules. The way we see it Rep. Massie is another frontline hero of this epidemic. Just as doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers are trying to quell the coronavirus epidemic, Rep. Massie is on the frontlines trying to quell the epidemic of anti-constitutional government that is threatening the life of our Republic.

Conservative Leaders Stand With 'Get America Back To Work' Governors

Governors in Georgia, Texas, Mississippi, Florida, South Carolina, Alaska, and Tennessee have begun announcing phased re-openings of their states and communities, allowing people to choose to return to work, go shopping, purchase services, and attend religious services, and once again exercise their rights and judgments as citizens. The conservative leaders of the Conservative Action Project applaud the thoughtful leadership of these governors.

Assault on America, Day 478: WARNING! Scam artist Dems force leftist lunacy on America!

It doesn’t take a genius to see the American public’s being scammed by a lot of deceitful political swindlers during the coronavirus panic. As the time nears for some of us to reopen our businesses and start leading “normal” lives again, we’ll need to watch out for the scammers and their ruthless schemes to abolish our freedoms.

Dictator? Trump understands limits to his power better than press does

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

When it comes to forcing American citizens to stay home, Trump can only advise. The real stupidity starts when state and local authorities start arresting preachers or citing people for showing up at church or chasing after people running down an empty beach. The First Amendment could not be clearer on the right to assemble peacefully. And the right of Americans to attend church unmolested by government actors. Only a complete fool politician would test that authority by physically barring them from going to church. Any such case would quickly shoot to the top of the courts, where the Supreme Court would flatly rule any such actions as totally unconstitutional.

Is Sweden’s Problem Coronavirus or Immigration?

After the Swedish government chose not to shut down the country in response to the Wuhan virus empidemic our friend David Franke took a deep dive into the mortality statistics for Sweden and other European countries and made a shocking discovery: mortality per million during this epidemic may be driven more by cultural differences attributable to mass immigration from the Middle East and Africa than it is by government lockdown policies.

Assault on America, Day 477: Media fixates on Biden VP choice to steal spotlight from Trump

With not much else happening in the coronavirus-dominated news cycle, the media is working overtime to generate interest in matters like Joe Biden’s upcoming running mate selection. We can’t be sure who he’ll choose, but we know for certain she will be a big government loving nanny state liberal…just like him!

COVID-19 Origins: The Must-Read Truth From Clare Lopez

As an explanation of how the Chinese Communists understand warfare “Made in China” stands on its own as an excellent primer on the subject, but our interest is in Clare Lopez’s report as the best short explanation available of how the 2019-nCoV came into existence and how the Communist Chinese weaponized the pandemic against the West.

Assault on America, Day 476: Politicians who protest the protesters merit removal from office

Every American politician should take pride in the citizenry actively engaging in societal governance, and this includes protesting when they feel their leaders aren’t acting in their best interests. In good and difficult times alike, government must be responsive to the voices of the people. Protests are a healthy thing, not a threat to well-being.

Why coronavirus will not cost Trump reelection

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

My view is that the president, like virtually everyone else in Washington, including Democrats, the media and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, was slow off the mark and initially reluctant to see the virus as a major threat. But once Trump crossed that threshold, he became, as he put it, a “wartime president” and has performed very well at marshaling supplies, working cooperatively with private firms and states facing the biggest outbreaks and keeping the public informed. Although his rhetoric can be absolutist, Trump has been flexible when it was needed and his deference to medical and health professionals is refreshingly out of character.

President Trump Should Adjourn Congress and Fill Critical Executive Positions

The conservative leaders of the Conservative Action Project, led by President Reagan’s Attorney General Edwin Meese III and CAP Chairman Alfred S. Regnery, have released an open letter to President Trump urging him to adjourn Congress and use his recess appointment power fill key positions that have been left vacant in his administration through congressional inaction and obstruction.

Assault on America, Day 475: Why we just might see more MAGA hats on campus real soon

It's hard to say whether we’ll soon be spotting MAGA hats on reopened college campuses, but there’s little doubt that recent youth opinion surveys are encouraging. Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats depend on waves of young voters turning out to favor them, and if they don’t… well, you can predict the rest of the story.
