Bloomberg Is No ‘Moderate’ On Abortion, Religious Liberty And Guns

We urge our conservative friends to keep an eye open for Bloomberg appearances, especially in the early Democrat primary states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina and to make a point of reminding voters that on guns, religious liberty and abortion Michael Bloomberg is not a “moderate” but an existential threat to constitutional liberty.

An Excusing Frenzy for Biden's Fact Mangling

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Biden's New Hampshire phony war story was no "gaffe." It was either (a) a trail of gaffes indicating Biden has lost his marbles or (b) a lie. Which is it, and how serious is this? The media's answers were predictable. The Post actually reported this story, but the usual spin quickly fell into place to offset the indictment. For decades now — and especially when Biden was vice president — the media have downplayed and ignored Biden's gaffes and misstatements and lies. This whole energetic frenzy of excuse manufacturing once again underlines the fraudulent media's boast that they are "facts first" and care most deeply about "the truth."

The gaffable Joe Biden

R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., Washington Times

Recently in Hanover, New Hampshire, former Vice President Joe Biden stitched together a stupendous concatenation of gaffes that ought to put him out of the race for the Democratic nomination. But apparently it will not. The Democrat presidential candidates are all phonies, and now The New York Times’ house “conservative” has leaped to gaffable Joe’s defense. David Brooks acknowledged that Joe might “embellish” his speeches, “But he’s not mendacious. He’s not irresponsible.” No, David, if Joe is not mendacious and not irresponsible, perhaps he is delusional? Maybe he can claim he is suffering Delusions of Candor.

Will Democrat ‘Super Delegates’ Save Gaffe-A-Minute Biden?

A significant group of “super delegates” coming out for Biden would signal donors that the Party elders have confidence in Biden’s ability to take on President Trump. Absent such an effort by the Democrats’ party leaders to tilt the nomination to Biden, it looks like Biden is fading and the race is moving toward an Elizabeth Warren vs. Bernie Sanders marathon.

Green New Deal Would Cost Households in 5 States $70K+ in First Year

The CEI and Power the Future analysis shows that, if implemented, the Green New Deal would cost for American households at least tens of thousands of dollars annually on a permanent basis. Perhaps that’s why exactly zero Senate Democrats, including the resolution’s 12 co-sponsors, voted for the Green New Deal when they had the chance.

Chris Sununu Isn’t Panicking on Gun Control

John Fund, National Review

Existing laws can be improved and, more important, enforced more vigorously. Laws mandating prison time for anyone using a gun while committing a crime do take dangerous people off of the street. More mental-health programs that directly tackle the problems of disturbed individuals are expensive but certainly needed. Congress passed a revamp of existing background checks last year, and it was signed into law by President Trump. But lawmakers can do more. But we shouldn’t allow our leaders to rush for “solutions” that have been shown not to work in their current form. That’s why Governor Sununu’s political courage in not going for the quick fix is so commendable.

Cult Of Death Sweeps New England

We urge CHQ readers and friends to battle the growing state sanctioned cult of death that just swept through New England. In particular we urge you to stand against assisted suicide proposals like the one that just became law in Maine and radical “abortion to the moment of birth” proposals like the one that just became law in New Hampshire, as similar bills are now being brought before state legislatures across the country.

Democrats In 2020: One Creep Out, One Creep In

With Michael Avenatti’s departure from the scene the creep factor for Democrats' 2020 primary did not go down, in fact it may have gone up a couple of notches with the announcement that #CreepyJoe Biden is actively considering running for the Democrats’ 2020 nomination.

New Data: Illegal Voters May Have Decided New Hampshire in 2016

J. Christian Adams, PJ Media

Newly available data is casting doubt on the integrity of the presidential election in New Hampshire in 2016, which Hillary Clinton won by just over 2,700 votes. Over 6,000 voters in New Hampshire had used same-day voter registration procedures to register and vote simultaneously for president. It seems the overwhelming majority of them can no longer be found in New Hampshire.

Get Judges And Private Organizations Out Of Refugee Resettlement

The notion that an unelected federal judge could order the President and Congress to admit a given number of foreigners and order the States to support with welfare and education benefits however many refugees a private organization chose to send them defies so many constitutional limits that it is hard to even begin to count them.

Ryan And McCarthy Playing Small Ball Against Islam’s Civilization Jihad

The Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044 we urge CHQ readers to call Speaker Ryan, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Homeland Security Chairman Mike McCaul to tell them it is time to confront the subversive pre-violent elements of civilization jihad, such as influence operations, lawfare, infiltration, migration, material support for terrorism, etc. Tell them that there is no acceptable substitute for Victory Over Jihad and that their bill falls far short of putting in place the tools necessary to defeat the clear and present danger civilization jihad presents to constitutional liberty and Western civilization.

Cruz Nails Obama Willful Blindness To Muslim Terrorism And Its Goals

As our friend Frank Gaffney put it so memorably after Senator Ted Cruz's stellar questioning of DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson, “The U.S. government is, indeed, ‘willfully blind’ about sharia-supremacism and the danger it poses to America.  Sen. Ted Cruz has established that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson could qualify for a seeing-eye dog – and why… These are the narratives of the Muslim Brotherhood – and proof-positive of their successful, subversive influence operations inside the Obama administration.”

Muslim Terrorism In America: See Something, Say Nothing

Our friend Philip B. Haney yesterday testified before Senator Ted Cruz’s Subcommittee on Oversight, Agency Action, Federal Rights and Federal Courts to explain just how deeply the Obama administration has been penetrated by the Muslim Brotherhood. Haney is the author of the must-read book See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government's Submission to Jihad that we strongly recommend to CHQ readers.

Fact: Ryan And Obama Are Importing Muslim Terrorism

Out of 580 individuals convicted on terrorism or terrorism-related offenses between September 11, 2001 and December 31, 2014 at least 380 of them were foreign born, and there's only one man responsible for keeping this existential threat to your safety and quality of life alive, and that's Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. We urge you to call Speaker Ryan’s office, the Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044, tell Speaker Ryan that you will hold him personally responsible for the next jihadi attack on our country.

Trump Is Right: Hillary Puts Refugees Ahead Of Inner City Americans

Trump's comments about Hillary Clinton's plans to expand the refugee resettlement program are dead on. Nothing captures how the “iron triangle” of entrenched Washington insider interests uses its influence on Congress to raid the Treasury and betray the American people as does the refugee “resettlement” industry.

Donald Trump Should Thank Ted Cruz For This Speech

We think every American should read or hear this speech by Ted Cruz and Trump’s speech on Muslim terrorism from earlier this week. Their mutual understanding of how to fight and win the war Islam has declared on America and the West revives our faint hope that Trump and Cruz might find a way to work together in the campaign against Hillary Clinton.

Obama and Ryan Want to Fight You, Not Muslim Terrorists

Many have commented on the folly of the Obama "countering violent extremism" strategy. But there’s an even more sinister element to the refusal by Capitol Hill Republicans to use the power of the purse to correct this negligent and wasteful strategy: through its so-called community partners, the program actually ends up funding individuals and organizations that sympathize with and cover for the terrorists.

The Leftwing Media's Top Issues for 2016: Gun Control and Hiding the Truth About Islam

Gun control is the one political issue that conveniently brings together Islamists and Leftwing statists, like Hillary Clinton, because what they both want is more unarmed victims who are incapable of defending constitutional liberty and standing in the way of their totalitarian vision for the future.

The Trump Speech On Muslim Terrorism Every American Should Hear

If you are still on the fence about voting for Donald Trump I suggest you read his speech on the Orlando Islamist terror attack and then ask yourself, for all his foibles, who is more credible, focused and trustworthy on winning the war Islam has declared on America, Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton?

Ted Cruz: New Hampshire a Victory for Conservative Grassroots

Michelle Fields, Breitbart

“John Kasich had a good night tonight, but the real winner — the real winner — is the conservative grassroots who propelled us to outright victory in Iowa and to a far stronger result and outcome in New Hampshire than anyone had predicted,” he said.
