bailouts

A reality-based look at Trump and the post office

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The news is filled with reports of President Trump's "assault" on the U.S. Postal Service. The president, Democrats and some in the media say, is deliberately slowing mail delivery and crippling the Postal Service so that it cannot handle an anticipated flood of voting by mail in the presidential election. Some of the accusations have grown so frantic that they resemble the frenzy of a couple of years ago over the allegation, from many of the same people, that Trump had conspired with Russia to fix the 2016 election. Now, it's the Postal Service. But what, actually, is going on?

Trump Orders Payroll Tax Deferral – Dems Demand More Misery And Bailouts

President Trump's Executive Order deferring payroll taxes is a winner for the economy and GOP election prospects. Mr. Trump has now made the election a referendum on middle-class taxes – he’s given Americans a job-creating tax cut now and can campaign on forgiving the taxes if reelected. This strategy is a game-changer for the economy and the GOP’s congressional election prospects, if Republican candidates are smart enough to embrace it.

Forget Another COVID Bailout President Trump Should Chart His Own Course To Rebuild The Economy

We urge CHQ readers and friends to call the White House at 202-456-1111 or use this link to email the White House to let President Trump know you back him and want him to make a bold move to enact pro-growth economic policy and rearrange the political chessboard for the 2020 election by declaring a national economic emergency and announcing that the Internal Revenue Service will immediately stop collecting the payroll tax.

Ted Cruz: No Bailouts For Minneapolis, Portland and Seattle

The toll-free Capitol switchboard is (1-866-220-0044). We urge CHQ readers and friends to call Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Whip John Thune to tell them you support Senator Cruz’s proposed legislation to make local governments liable to private property owners if officials deliberately withhold police protection.

There’s No Proof Killing The Economy Saves Lives

The evidence is growing that lockdowns did not have the kind of life saving effect that their advocates, such as Dr. Anthony Fauci and Democrat Governor of Virginia Dr. Ralph Northam, claimed they would. We urge CHQ readers and friends to read Grading Our Governors: A Report Card on Reopening States' Economies and if your Governor has not earned an “A” or a “B” to call him or her to demand that the economy of your state be reopened.

Dr. Anthony Fauci Is A Carpenter With Only One Tool

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
In his dire warnings, that not unexpectedly drew praise from Democrats who need unemployment to be at a high level to win this November's election.  Dr. Fauci reminds me of a carpenter with only one tool – which in his case will be a clamp on the economy. President Trump should reject Democrat calls to run the country on Dr. Fauci’s one problem – one tool approach.

GOP Must Stop Pelosi’s $3 Trillion Vote Fraud Power Grab

It’s hard to know where to start explaining just how bad Speaker Pelosi’s next gen bailout bill is – but we will start with the institutionalization of California-style vote fraud.  The toll-free Capitol Switchboard number (1-866-220-0044), we urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Senators and Representative tell them Pelosi’s $3 trillion vote stealing plan is a non-starter and that America needs to get back to work.

How Does COVID-19 Fit In China’s Bio-Weapons Program?

The focus of our preliminary assessment of the Chinese actions was on the economic warfare domain, but that is only one of the seven domains of warfare recognized in Chinese military thinking. But a must-read article by our friend Clare M. Lopez raises a new and even more frightening possibility: The Chinese Communist Party intends to militarily defeat, occupy, and colonize the U.S. and biological weapons figure prominently in their strategy.

Evidence is Building that the Chinese Developed COVID-19 to use as an Economic Weapon Against the United States

If you are a loyal Chinese Communist, you see President Trumps actions, as an Act of War. This American President is looking to stop China’s accent as the world’s leading economic and military power. That cannot stand.  As the virus spread, the Chinese realized that COVID-19 would be an effective economic weapon. Which may be why they cancelled domestic flights in and out of Wuhan, but allowed international flights to continue, hoping the virus would spread to the United States.

Conservative Leaders To GOP: No State and Local Government Bailouts in COVID-19 Relief Legislation

As Congress contemplates a future relief package, the conservative leaders of the Conservative Action Project, led by Chairman Alfred S. Regnery, urge Congress to reject state and local government cash bailouts in favor of policies which give states the flexibility to address the COVID-19 crisis according to the needs of their state – including providing relief from onerous regulations, unfunded federal mandates, and policies which stifle economic growth.

Grading Our Governors: A Report Card on Reopening States' Economies

Our friends at FreedomWorks and the Committee to Unleash Prosperity yesterday announced the publication of their new report, Grading Our Governors: A Report Card on Reopening States' Economies. It will come as no surprise that only one Democrat governor earned an "A".  If your Governor did not earned an “A” or a “B” call him or her to demand that the economy of your state be reopened.

Civil Disobedience Against Unconstitutional Lockdowns Spreading

Business owners and citizens wishing to exercise their constitutional rights have begun to actively defy the arbitrary and capricious lockdown orders imposed mostly by Democrat governors, city and county officials. Some, such as Maine restauranteur Rick Savage, have been quickly slammed with suspension of their state licenses and other political retaliation. Others, such as California fitness center owner Sean Covell, are readying legal challenges should the state attempt to continue to enforce its unconstitutional orders.

How Democrats Ignored Science To Kill Thousands Of Senior Citizens

New York, California, New Jersey and other liberal states instituted rules that forced nursing homes to accept coronavirus patients. The next time Democrats claim to be “the Party of science” we hope someone asks them if they believe in the germ theory of disease and if so, why their leading governors sent thousands of coronavirus-infected people to spread those germs to elderly nursing home patients, killing more than 10,000 of them.

This is no time to bail out already-failing union pension funds

Editors, Washington Examiner

Another bad idea now getting a second wind thanks to the plague is a bailout of private union-controlled pension funds. Democrats have been pushing this idea for decades. Now, they are pushing it again, hoping to exploit the fact that the nation is in crisis. But if ever there were a bad time to bail out pensions, this is it. The Democrats’ proposal would spend over $100 billion to kick down the road a preexisting structural problem of 125 multiemployer union pension funds that were failing even in good times, all the while overpromising and underfunding the retirement of the workers they were charged with protecting. Now is not the time.

Trump Should Not Let Red China Keep Laughing At Us

Our friend Frank Gaffney has proposed a proven avenue by which President Trump can block another Red Chinese raid on American capital markets.  We urge CHQ readers to call the White House (202-456-1111) to tell President Trump it's time to invoke the International Economic Emergency Powers Act to prohibit US military and US government civilian retirement funds from being invested in Communist China by Blackrock’s Larry Fink.

Are You Ready To Sue Red China For Your Wuhan Virus Losses?

The toll-free Capitol Switchboard number (1-866-220-0044), we urge CHQ readers and friends to call Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to demand that they schedule hearings and pass the Cotton – Crenshaw bill to immediately end Red China’s sovereign immunity for Wuhan virus claims.

Anti-Lockdown Protests And The Defiant Protestant Heart of America

Defiance of the authoritarian kings and queens of the universal lockdown order, the high priests of COVID-19 pseudo-science and the Inquisitors of the establishment media is deeply rooted in America’s cultural Calvinism and the Protestant Enlightenment. Far from being anti-science this defiance is deeply rooted in Protestant Enlightenment thinking in which all authority may be tested against the plain language of the Gospel and all knowledge tested through the lived experience of observation and experimentation.

Trump Doesn’t Owe Millions Of Dollars To Red China, But Hunter Biden Sure Raked It In

The entire point of Politico’s story – that President Trump was in debt to the Chinese – was not only wrong, it was completely false. We know it is wishful thinking, but it would be nice if just once the establishment media took a look at these potential stories and gave the Bidens the same scrutiny they give Donald Trump, his family, and other Republican officeholders and candidates.

Greedy Harvard Signals Higher Ed Must Change After Pandemic

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

The professorate and, even more, the administrators frequently react to these SJWs in a manner that is beyond timidity, essentially becoming their enablers. All of this can be subsumed under what has become a massive disconnect between our higher educational system and what it was originally intended to achieve—preparing students for the working world and to be informed citizens of a democratic republic. One of the very few positive outcomes of the pandemic is that it may be helping to change this situation—and quickly. Higher education is, inadvertently, being placed under the microscope of cost-benefit analysis. It will likely never be the same.

Rep. Thomas Massie Defends The Constitution… Again

Principled limited government constitutional conservative Rep. Thomas Massie once again bucked the DC  Uniparty to demand Congress follow the Constitution and its own rules. The way we see it Rep. Massie is another frontline hero of this epidemic. Just as doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers are trying to quell the coronavirus epidemic, Rep. Massie is on the frontlines trying to quell the epidemic of anti-constitutional government that is threatening the life of our Republic.
