Independence Day

Don’t Cancel Nick Cannon. Cancel 'Cancel Culture'

Our friend Adam Guillette, President of Accuracy in Media, opposes cancelling Nick Cannon for his hateful comments about white people and Jews, arguing conservatives and libertarians do not stand to gain from normalizing cancel culture tactics. As we saw in cities throughout our nation just a few weeks ago, the Left will always be much better than us at mobilizing unruly mobs. And who among us desires to live in a society dominated by mob rule?

It Is Time We Adopted A ‘Second Tower’ Mentality

When the first plane hit the North Tower of the World Trade Center everyone knew something was terribly wrong, but they were in a First Tower Mentality. When the second plane hit the South Tower, everyone suddenly had a Second Tower Mentality - they knew America was under attack. So, are you still in a First Tower Mentality about the Revolutionary events that have been happening these past five months? Or have you had your Second Tower Moment yet?

Conservatives Gather To Protect Emancipation Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Our friend Star Parker, President of Urban CURE, recently led a group of some 200 patriots in a demonstration of support for retaining the Emancipation Memorial at its historic location in Washington, D.C.’s Lincoln Park. The memorial depicts a courageous Archer Alexander who risked his life to be free. And it depicts a courageous Lincoln who paid for his convictions with his life. To join Star’s campaign to save the Emancipation Memorial click this link.

Mr. President When Your Enemies Are Committing Political Suicide Get Out Of Their Way

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Recently, Democrats have been doing a great job of committing political suicide by embracing a host of mean, evil, violent, radical, elitist socialist candidates and causes. Unfortunately, the Democrat Party’s self-immolation, and President Donald Trump’s own stellar speech at Mt. Rushmore and the Independence Day celebration at the White House were drowned out by – you guessed it – Donald Trump.

The Nation is Being Taken Down by Lies, and It’s All the Republicans’ Fault

After two-and-a-half decades of Republican surrender, combined with the basically socialist/communist and corrupt rule of the Democrats for the better part of the 20th century, has brought us here: a populace that can’t tell truth from lies. And the radical segment of that populace is in the streets, brainwashed by the indoctrination factories we call college and to no small degree, by the public school system that led them there.

Did Your Local Newspaper Call Trump's Mt. Rushmore Speech 'dark and divisive'? Here's One Way To Push Back

If your local newspaper covered the President’s speech at Mt. Rushmore using the words "dark and divisive" they weren’t covering “the news” rather the paper was simply regurgitating Democrat Party talking points pushed out to reporters after every Trump speech. We urge conservatives to set the record straight by sending a letter to the editor defending President Trump’s Mt. Rushmore speech. To assist you in that effort, here are some sample paragraphs you might include in your letter.

It’s the Ballgame, America

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Because of the betrayal by the mainstream media and the silence by most Republican politicians, it falls to us conservatives to ride to the front lines of the civil war that’s now raging between those who love America and those who hate America. If you and other similarly experienced and trained conservatives don’t become fully engaged, it’s almost certain that the radical New Democrat socialists will win in November, and the America we know, and love will be gone forever.

Where are America’s Leaders? Is it you?

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Since the 1960s, people have asked me how they can help in a political campaign or help with this or that conservative cause.  Well, not only is there a way for you to be involved in this year’s election, it’s vitally important, in fact I say it’s absolutely necessary for you to be involved if America is to be saved. Please read this memo and if you agree with it, please pass it on to others.

We Need To Fight And Win The Election We Have

After what we’ve seen in the streets over the past month it is inescapable that the future of our country is at stake in this election. Thus, it is to Donald Trump that Americans who wish to live in liberty will have to look if our constitutional republic is to survive. It’s time we conservatives stopped wishing for an election that was never going to be and buckled down to do whatever it takes to win the election we have.

Joe Biden Meets the Press

Debra J. Saunders, The American Spectator

Ari Fleischer tweeted: “What wasn’t asked: 1) Anything about Biden’s role in authorizing surveillance against the Trump campaign 2) Do blue lives matter? 3) Should CHOP in Seattle never have been allowed? 4) will you prosecute those who destroy statues? 5?) Should NYPD be cut $1 billion?” These are questions that could inform voters — and they are left on the cutting room floor. Asking smart questions is not easy. Not every question will hit the mark. And it’s not wrong to ask a softball question that elicits clarity on an issue. But asking questions to provoke nonanswers to an “if true” story — we can do better.

Grassroots Conservatives Channel Winston Churchill

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Britain’s great statesman and orator Winston Churchill once told the House of Commons that when he was a small child he was taken to Barnum's Circus where the exhibit he most desired to see was the Boneless Wonder, however his parents would not allow it. Were Churchill alive today, he would need only to stop by the offices of Republican Senators Mike Braun, John Cornyn, Ron Johnson, James Lankford, Mitch McConnell and John Thune to fulfill his youthful curiosity.

Pay Attention To Joe Biden’s Threat To Transform America

Over the Independence Day weekend likely Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden tweeted, “We're going to beat Donald Trump. And when we do, we won't just rebuild this nation — we'll transform it.” Having already experienced eight years of the Obama – Biden administration’s efforts at “fundamentally transforming the United States of America,” we here at CHQ take Biden’s tweet as both a promise and a threat.

ProtectMonuments.org Launches Campaign To Protect America’s History

Public monuments belong to all Americans and citizens across the country are demanding that our elected officials protect our monuments.  To that end, the American Constitutional Rights Union (ACRU) has launched its Protect Monuments Project to mobilize citizens and pressure public officials to protect historic monuments and buildings from leftist criminals and vandals who seek to erase our national history.

Democrats Now Stand For The Exact Opposite Of The Declaration Of Independence

It is important to remember that the patriots who fought our Revolution didn’t fight for the Constitution; they fought for the Declaration of Independence and a unique “pre-Constitution” revolutionary vision of individual liberty. Today, the liberty of Americans is once again threatened, this time by those who profess the ideology of the new Democrat Party – whose ideas and policies are almost the polar opposite of those expressed in the Declaration of Independence.

America Isn’t Quebec, Mexico Or Brazil — And That’s Worth Celebrating

Daniel Oliver, Daily Caller

When does the America that came into being on July 4, 1776, cease being that America? Given all that’s happened, what are we to celebrate this Fourth of July? In his book, “Who Are We?” Samuel P. Huntington provides one answer: “Would America be the America it is today if in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries it had been settled not by British Protestants but by French, Spanish, or Portuguese Catholics? The answer is no. It would not be America; it would be Quebec, Mexico, or Brazil.” There’s one thing to celebrate: We’re not Quebeckers, Mexicans, or Brazilians. What is our nationality? American, if we can keep it.

Trolling the 4th of July

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Liberals loudly denounced President Trump for taking part in the Fourth of July festivities in the nation's capital.Then they used the celebration of our nation to attack her. Their actions are deliberately designed to offend ... to grab everyone's attention ... to please the people who really can't stand the thought of American exceptionalism. This nation needs to be diminished. Being divisive can be very effective politics — and business. But it also underlines that the left is totally disingenuous when it talks about tolerance and unity yet its actions betray the opposite. The antifa group is fascist, and the "patriotic" protesters burn American flags ... even on our nation's birthday.

July 4th: Hate in the Time of Peace and Prosperity

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Everybody's angry for July 4, 2019, particularly the left. They're angry about what people did two hundred years ago and they're angry about what they might be doing today, even if they're not. They think everyone is a racist, was a racist, or will be one. And if they're not a racist, and even if they are, they're a sexist, a homophobe, an Islamophobe, a transphobe who hates people in wheelchairs and on and on. And does it matter that people crying racism were themselves the scions of racists? But there is a good side. Things are pretty great. We do have peace, prosperity and, more importantly, freedom (if we could only get rid of Google and Facebook and some government agencies).

The Brilliance Of Trump’s Fourth of July Bash

Researchers at Harvard University have found that the July Fourth holiday commemorating the announcement of the Declaration of Independence may still be serving its intended purpose – promoting patriotism. And the even better news is that celebrating Independence Day also seems to make people vote Republican.

Happy Firearms Appreciation Day

We here at CHQ like to think of July 4th as “Firearms Appreciation Day’” because without firearms, and the American prowess with them, there would be no independence to celebrate. The war that turned the Declaration of Independence into a reality was a remarkable triumph that would have been inconceivable had not every man been armed with his own gun.

Is America Still a Nation?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Could the Constitution, as currently interpreted, win the approval of two-thirds of our citizens and three-fourth of our states, if it were not already the supreme law of the land? How would a national referendum on the Constitution turn out, when many Americans are already seeking a new constitutional convention?
