AR-15 Build - Our CHQ Cabin Fever Project Part 2, Step 3, Completion Of The Lower Receiver

Many would be gun buyers have found popular guns, such as the AR-15, to be as scarce as toilet paper. This temporary demand-based shortage of AR-15s has prompted many Americans to take the practical and perfectly legal (in most jurisdictions) alternative of building their own AR-platform rifle. Follow us in Part 2, Step 3 of our project as we complete our lower receiver to exercise our Second Amendment rights and ward off cabin fever by building an AR-15.

Why Trump Will Win the Post-Pandemic Election

David Catron, The American Spectator

Biden will enjoy a disproportionate amount of “earned media.” The 2016 election illustrated the limitations of that once formidable resource. Trump also has other advantages such as a sophisticated “virtual campaign.” As Jennifer Harper wrote, “President Trump has once again proven he can bypass the news media and take his message directly to the public.” It's why the Democrats are anxious to shut down the economy. Their only hope is that the coronavirus recession will be blamed on Trump. As usual, however, they underestimate the intelligence of the voters and the president himself. When we emerge from the pandemic, Trump will have won yet again.

We Are Approaching COVID-19 Gut-Check Time

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

In the coming days, the President Donald Trump will have to make a lose-lose decision to either inaugurate a graduated return to work or keep the country locked down for weeks longer. Economists will likely urge him to restart the economy as fast as possible. Epidemiologists will warn of a second viral spike if millions go back to work. Trump will either be praised for saving the American economy or damned for dooming thousands. Timelines grow shorter. The virus and the draconian reaction to it are wearing down a quarantined America. We are on the verge of learning a lot more about the virus that will result in as much disagreement as relief.

Of Course It’s Trump’s Call

Scott McKay, The American Spectator

You don’t need a plan. You need freedom. Your plan is guaranteed not to work for the majority of Americans, whose needs and responsibilities don’t match whatever you’re going to put in your white paper. These people are adults. They’ve managed to survive in the world long enough to make their own decisions. They didn’t deserve to have their lives upended and their livelihoods destroyed, something that a lousy government check or a worse government loan, whether forgiven or not, is not recompense for. You have done enough to them. Let my people go. Just let them go. They’ve all seen enough of this virus that they understand the risks, and they’ll act accordingly.

Assault on America, Day 471: Obama endorsed ‘ol Joe Biden. Here’s how it (probably) happened

Conservatives may not agree with the Obamas but we concede that they’re not losers. Any takers for a bet on whether Barack and Michelle would risk everything just for the chance of standing in the background for Joe Biden? No way! Endorsements don’t mean much today, but non-endorsements do. Waiting all this time to choose Joe spoke volumes.

An Economic Shutdown Based On... What?

Today there is widespread skepticism about the statistical projections of the coronavirus epidemiological models, even when we confine ourselves to the statistics about deaths, which are the most verifiable.  Maybe not on MSNBC and most of CNN, but then they live in their own universe.  There is evidence, however, that our political and financial establishments are becoming alarmed that we have crippled the economy on the basis of nonsense.

Assault on America, Day 470: Joe Biden’s task force would dictate to businesses after COVID-19

There’s no end in sight to liberals’ crazy proposals for dealing with our new realities after everyone returns to work and socializing is once again “permitted” by the petty tyrant swamp class. Joe Biden wants to appoint a business safety task force and Alyssa Milano begs people not to buy guns. Another day in coronavirus paradise.

Democrats Are Using The Wuhan Virus To Reframe Big Government Tyranny As Patriotism

Democrats have (as usual) quickly identified the messages necessary to extract the maximum political utility out of the COVID-19 epidemic and the associated panic. If conservatives want to avoid having this panic turn into an opportunity for Progressives to move our politics and culture further to the Left, then we must take seriously the lessons of the Frontier Center’s "Progressive Patriotism" study.

AG Barr And Conservatives Striking Back At Church Lockdowns

Conservative patience with the extra-constitutional Wuhan virus lockdowns finally reached the breaking point on Easter, when elected officials across the country chose to use the alleged epidemic as an excuse to trample on religious liberty. Now conservatives, led by Attorney General William Barr, and conservative religious liberty organizations First Liberty Institute and Liberty Counsel are fighting back.

Assault on America, Day 469: Trump’s resolve to reopen the country comes with (some) risk

The coronavirus panic has presented a wealth of challenges no one could’ve anticipated just two months ago. With much of the United States (and the world) shut down to try and contain the spread, the largest issue remaining is the proper time to return society to normal. President Trump will decide. Is there an incorrect answer?

Democrats Would Rather Blame Trump Than China for the Pandemic

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

By focusing their attention on Trump, Democrats are in essence aiding the CCP in their nefarious activities that could well do immense damage to the future of our country and the world. But never mind. Trump must go. The Dem’s and the media’s objective is clearly to drive a wedge between Trump and the scientists to make the president seem like a greedy yahoo willing to sacrifice his fellow citizens for the good of the stock market. Like all political parties they still want power and Biden represents the past in every way imaginable. All they really have to generate excitement is how they can paint Trump. This should be alarming to our nation and the world.

AR-15 Build - Our CHQ Cabin Fever Project Part 2, Step 2, The Fire Control Group

Many would be gun buyers have found popular guns, such as the AR-15, to be as scarce as toilet paper. This temporary demand-based shortage of AR-15s has prompted many Americans to take the practical and perfectly legal (in most jurisdictions) alternative of building their own AR-platform rifle. Follow us in Part 2, Step 2 of our project as we assemble the fire control group to exercise our Second Amendment rights and ward off cabin fever by building an AR-15.

Assault on America, Day 468: Bernie’s campaign bit the dust, but will Democrats carry it on?

Bernie Sanders’ exit from the 2020 Democrat primary race didn’t engender much comment, nor should it have. Joe Biden’s got his hands full trying to pick a running mate who satisfies the many factions of Democrats, but his real challenge is getting the American public invested in the party agenda again. After coronavirus, it won’t happen.

The Difference Between Texas And Indiana Republicans

We thought that the Republican Party was the Party of constitutional limits on government, but the panic created by the COVID-19 “epidemic” and the extra-constitutional actions of Republican public officials, such as Indiana’s Governor Eric Holcomb, have revealed that the urge to tyranny is not bound by political affiliation and in the end can only be constrained by the fidelity to the Constitution of individual office holders, such as Texas’ Governor Greg Abbott and Attorney General Ken Paxton.

Assault on America, Day 467: Post COVID-19, is the GOP still the home of limited government?

With many in the nation questioning the basis for further sequestering the workforce -- and causing more damage to the economy -- calls will increase to get people back to work. Both parties deserve blame for drastically boosting spending in the midst of crisis. Now it’s time to figure out how to return to normal.

Is America a Roaring Giant or Crying Baby?

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Post-virus America can awake from this epidemic and economic shutdown in one of two different ways. One, we can wake up as we did on December 8, 1941, to ensure that Americans control their own fundamentals of life — food, fuel, medicine, and strategic industries — without dependency. The military can refocus our defenses against nuclear missiles, cyberwarfare, and biological weapons. On the home front, diversity is fine, but in a national crisis as serious as this one, the unity that arises from confidence in shared American citizenship saves lives. Our other choice is to keep bickering and suffering amnesia, remaining as vulnerable as we were in the past.

Heritage Convenes Conservatives For Citizen Coronavirus Recovery Commission

The Heritage Foundation,  the nation's premier conservative think tank, yesterday announced that it is convening a National Coronavirus Recovery Committee bringing together experts in medicine, economics, government, business, and human behavior to advise the White House, Congress and state and local governments as they chart a way forward from the economic, healthcare and human consequences of the COVID-19 epidemic. To follow the work of the Committee or submit ideas to it go to https://medium.com/coronavirus-commission.

Bringing Drug Manufacturing Back To America May Be Tougher Than You Think

Back on January 11, 2017, before he was even inaugurated, then-President-elect Donald Trump laid out his ambitions for the US pharma industry. He called for reversing the trend of the past decade – which was to outsource manufacturing overseas -- and a return to domestic production. Trump was right of course, but Congress, more intent on destroying his presidency than helping America, failed to act on legislation that might have helped and the industry has remained focused on reducing costs.

Assault on America, Day 463: Easter reminds us that some tragic stories do have happy endings

Each spring, the Lenten season and Easter are times to reflect and self-assess our lives and to offer thanks for Jesus’s sacrifice and for God’s gift of eternal life. This year will be particularly meaningful for many, remembering what we’ve given up or lost, but also the multitude of good things that still lie ahead.

Coronavirus Is Killing Off Government By ‘Experts’

Is anyone else tired of government by “experts” and ready for a return to government of the people, by the people and for the people? We certainly are. Fortunately, there appears to be some prospect of lifting that burden, because next to the sniveling snowflakes of the White House press corps and the much-reviled hoarders of toilet paper, no other class of Americans has lost more credibility with their fellow citizens than the now completely discredited “experts” on epidemiology.
