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?

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.

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.

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.

Assault on America, Day 462: How extreme is too extreme for Dems and mail-in voting schemes?

In these uncertain times, liberals are laying the groundwork for permanent change to the way America votes while also preparing justifications and excuses for their likely failure in this year’s elections. With Easter coming up and no end in sight to the coronavirus craziness, anything and everything is on the table in Democrat-land.

Coronavirus Releases Democrats' Inner Totalitarian

It’s not that Democrats are uniquely incompetent, it is that they politicize everything. And in their imagined socialist paradise, only the goods doled-out by the State are “essential,” so banning the sale of books or supplies that might help make one self-sufficient are natural first steps in narrowing that circle of liberty down to what the State deems to be life’s bare necessities.

Assault on America, Day 461: Democrats use coronavirus to launch more Trump witch hunts

Try as they might, Democrats’ efforts to investigate and censure President Trump over the administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic are destined to fail. There simply isn’t a way the liberal party can attack the “wartime” leader without looking petty and partisan. It’s another sad aspect of the strange times we’re living in.

Constitution-Respecting Sheriffs Refuse to Enforce Lockdowns

Not only are some legislators questioning the level of executive-overreach involved in blanket stay-at-home orders, but some sheriffs and police departments are refusing to enforce them, citing constitutional and administrative difficulties.This is not Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia where you are asked for your papers, said Franklin County (Maine) Sheriff Scott Nichols.

Call The White House Tell The President To Ignore Chris Wallace’s Unconstitutional Idea For A Nationwide Lockdown

Yesterday, Chris Wallace had U.S. Surgeon General Vice Admiral Jerome Adams on and hectored him about why no national stay-at-home order has been issued. We urge CHQ readers to call the White House, the comment line is (202-456-1111) please politely explain to the assistant taking the call that you think President Trump is doing a great job handling the coronavirus panic and that it would be a huge error to issue an extra-constitutional nationwide stay-at-home order.

Assault on America, Day 460: Liberal media’s take on COVID-19 pandemic is hard to watch

There’s little doubt some things are hard to watch these days, including the daily rising coronavirus death tolls and the drastic increase in unemployed Americans. Tough times call for exceptional leaders, and fortunately for us, President Trump is up to the task. If only the media would do its job, we’d all see the light of day.

Left Moving From Proof Of Concept To Execution On Plan To Bring Down America

Three things now moving rapidly below the surface of American politics and culture should alert conservatives to the extreme danger now facing the United States and the future of constitutional government. Millions who had never had it so good on New Years Day 2020 are now desperate about how to pay their rent or mortgage, where next week’s groceries will come from and how to pay April’s bills.

AR-15 Build - Our CHQ Cabin Fever Project Part 2, Step1 Lower Receiver Assembly

Many would be gun buyers have found popular guns, such as the AR-15, to be as scarce as toilet paper.

Assault on America, Day 457: No rewind possible for 2020 election or Congress’s fiscal insanity

You know we’re in strange times when people seriously ponder postponing this year’s election or doing a “rewind” on the political nominating process. Now more than ever it’s prudent to take a step back and consider everything we’re doing -- and proceed cautiously. Let’s not make a bad situation worse.
