Bible Verses Now ‘Unsafe’ On Social Media

Our friend James O’Keefe and his team at Project Veritas have obtained a "Sensitive Terms List" from a Pinterest insider, which revealed the social media giant manipulates search results for "Bible verses," "Christian Easter," and other Christian terms. Project Veritas also reviewed their “porn domain block list” and was able to confirm that along with LiveAction.org, many other conservative websites were also listed as porn.

Massive Victory For Religious Freedom Over Obamacare Contraceptive Mandate

In a sweeping victory for religious freedom, that the media has refused to cover and Google has all but hidden from search results, a federal court in Texas permanently blocked the federal government from enforcing the Obamacare “Contraceptive Mandate” against any employer or individual who objects to the provision of contraception on religious grounds.

CAP Leaders: Higher Education Reauthorization Must Treat All Schools & Students Equally

With college campuses becoming increasingly intolerant to ideas and debate, it is more important than ever that federal policy allow diversity of views to flourish. As the HEA moves forward, conservatives urge congressional Republicans to stand firm on principles of equal treatment and fairness for all students, and all schools.

The most important 44 words in the Constitution

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

The First Amendment to the Constitution, the most important 44 words in that priceless and precious promise of liberty and freedom, does not guarantee civil, wise or even responsible speech. It guarantees free speech, however goofy, dumb or even irresponsible. Guarding against the encroachment of good intentions is a full-time job. We all know where the road paved with good intentions leads. The Trump administration declined to sign the Christchurch Call, and we should all be grateful he did, but he can expect practiced outrage from the usual quarters, although the United States never signs such things.

The Spartacus Versus Fauxahontas Cage Match

The worst thing Democrat presidential candidates can say about one another is, “You’re just like Trump.” So, you know things are getting down to serious policy differences between Senator Cory “Spartacus” Booker (D-NJ) and Senator Elizabeth “Fauxahontas” Warren (D-MA) when he hit her with the "you sound like Trump" insult.

Brian Lamb Retires: How C-SPAN Started the Revolution Against TV’s Liberal Gatekeepers

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Brian Lamb’s idea that, “We’re better off listening to everyone, no matter what they say, rather than us being the gatekeeper,” looks even more revolutionary today, in the era of social media censorship of conservatives, than it did in 1979 when he started C-SPAN.

Trump’s Intersectional Weekend

While we don’t buy the idea that all of society is controlled by oppressive intersectional institutions, the Trump team has, from the beginning of his unlikely rise to the Oval Office, recognized that the key elements of a winning political coalition on the Right do intersect, and their nexus is constitutional liberty, especially as protected by the First and Second Amendments.

The State of Free Speech in Europe and the Future of America

European policymakers have failed to recognize that the best way to combat totalitarian and racist ideologies, such as Nazism, and the spread of their ideas, is to let them speak freely and to disprove them in the court of public opinion. The lesson for America is: Don’t adopt totalitarian laws in an effort to stop totalitarianism.

Google Discrimination Against Conservatives No Longer A ‘Myth’

“You can’t trust the human judgment of Google’s Trust and Safety team,” said a source at Google. If that didn’t come through loud and clear from Google internal memos, the plain words of Google employees confirms it and will send a chill down the spine of every person in any country who values the principles of free expression, religious liberty and freedom of association.

Chick-fil-A And NRA Prove Democrats Can Never Be Trusted With Power

What’s happened to Chick-fil-A and the NRA prove, there remains no protection except the ballot box to curtail the ability of Democrats to shut down arbitrarily whole classes of businesses they deem to be “politically incorrect.”

Time For Trump To Stop Defending Obama Era Wrongdoing

Just because the presidency changed from President Obama to President Trump, that does not mean that career government employees change. We urge all CHQ readers and friends to visit Sharyl Attkisson’s GoFundMe page and make your most generous contribution to expose the Obama administration’s wrongdoing and to identify the Deep State operatives behind it.

China, the NSA, Google, and the War on Freedom

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The employees of Google themselves behave much like a cult, eager to drum out the mildest of apostates. The self-styled social justice warriors on our campuses act similarly, ever searching for the most "victimized" person as the eye in the sky watches and, hopefully, approves. All the to-ing and fro-ing on our supposedly contentious social media are just fodder for the homogenization to come. It's all very Chinese, if you think not very far back to the Cultural Revolution.

Aided By Big Tech And Media Far Left Is Organizing For More Political Assassinations

Just in case you bought the establishment media’s narrative that the attempted assassination of House Republican Whip Rep. Steve Scalise and the rest of the Republican baseball team was the one-off work of a nut, our friends at Far Left Watch have a chilling report to once and for all disabuse you of that fantasy.

Must See Video: “Say NO to the Mob”

ForAmerica.org's “Say NO to the Mob” dramatically shows that the Democrats’ words do have consequences, and those consequences are broken windows, beaten Trump supporters and gunfire aimed at Republican members of Congress. You can view the video through this link.

Hey, Washington Post, glad you're joining us free speech defenders!

Editors, Washington Examiner

In fighting this fight, they are also nobly arguing for and upholding the constitutional rights that campaign finance reformers on the Left, including the Post's editorialists, have long been working to undermine, beginning with their efforts to overturn Citizens United. So we salute the Washington Post’s attorneys and encourage its editors to follow their work carefully.

The “Enemy Of The People” Media Were On The Wrong Side In The Revolution

It’s not their criticism of Donald Trump that has made many in the establishment media “the enemy of the people.” They earned the title by embracing progressive narratives on lopsided trade policies, open borders, the admission to our country of millions of unvetted “refugees," big government subsidies for special interests and other policies rejected in the 2016 Trump revolution.

The Soviet Union had Pravda, America has Facebook

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

In sane, civilized society, everyone knows that nasty, rude, hateful people are simply to be ignored. Not elevated and magnified and analyzed. You know the only thing more tedious than listening to some rambling madman spew racist nonsense? Listening to a couple of sheltered snowflakes working for National People’s Radio analyze some rambling madman spewing racist nonsense. Literally, you can feel yourself getting dumber as they speak. And there is no getting those brain cells back.

Censorship: The Dark Heart Of The Democratic Party

Democrats demanding the “deplatforming” of those whose opinions they don’t like is the 21st century equivalent of pressuring papermakers to stop selling newsprint to newspapers that criticize the King and it gives voters a deep look into the dark, totalitarian heart of the new “progressive” Democratic Party.

Liberals against freedom of conscience

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

Why is it considered “liberal” to compel others to say or fund things they don’t believe? That’s a question raised by the Supreme Court’s decisions in three cases this year. And it’s a puzzling development for those of us old enough to remember when liberals championed free speech — even when it involved advocacy of sedition or sodomy — and conservatives wanted government to restrain or limit it.
