The Mainstream Media’s Malignant Moral Narcissism

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

The moral narcissism of our media has become more severe almost by the day. They admit nothing. What was their role in the promulgation of the Steele dossier when so many, it has become obvious, knew it was a fraud? Do they wish they had said something as it took off and became the bogus linchpin of the Russia investigation? We are now a nation divided as never since the Civil War and these media lies are largely the instigator of that. This is especially bad because, coming out of a pandemic, the likelihood of our society to have the ability to work together is seriously undermined, perhaps for years to come.

The Remains of an Administration

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

The Obama post presidency did not help his cause. Obama was supposed to have jump-started the careers of dozens of young, charismatic “diversity” imitators in the presidential arena, such as Cory Booker, Pete Buttigieg, Julian Castro, Deval Patrick, Kamala Harris, and Andrew Yang. All crashed and burned in the Democratic primaries. We were supposed to see a fundamental transformation of the country between 2009 and 2025, as the Obama-Clinton 16-year regnum finally made America right and correct. Instead, we witnessed eight years that ended in scandal whose full dimensions of criminality will take years to process.

Another Deep State Smear Of Trump

There’s nothing that says the Administration has to run out and obligate the funds Congress appropriates on the first day of the Fiscal Year. The Pentagon spends more than $2 billion every day, and plenty of Americans would like to see that number go down. To claim the President broke the law because the Pentagon couldn’t spend $35 million in 19 days is nothing but a political smear.

Why Republicans Won’t Abandon Trump

Trump haters are confounded by Trump supporters. They ask, “If you believe it’s true that Trump does sketchy things, why don’t you care?” They ask the same question about the climate: “You concede that the climate is changing, so why won’t you do something about it?” The answer: You first.

Sen. Lindsey Graham Announces Ukraine Hearing With Rudy Giuliani

Sen. Graham announced the hearing saying, "Given the House of Representatives’ behavior, it is time for the Senate to inquire about corruption and other improprieties involving Ukraine. Therefore, I will offer to Mr. Giuliani the opportunity to come before the Senate Judiciary Committee to inform the Committee of his concerns." We hope once he hears from Mayor Giuliani he will subpoena Hunter Biden to explain what beside his father's name he put into his many foreign business ventures.

Tell Romney, Sasse And Collins To Stop Their Virtue Signaling Attacks On Trump

The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) we urge CHQ readers and friends to call Senators Romney, Sasse and Collins to tell them to stop virtue signaling about President Trump and to support an investigation into the gross corruption of Joe and Hunter Biden.

Ukrainegate Shows We Need Fred Fleitz As Director Of National Intelligence

The United States needs an effective and uncorrupted intelligence apparatus to play its part in defending the nation, and Fred Fleitz has shown himself to be an adept and able administrator capable of doing the housecleaning necessary to air out the stench of Leftwing partisan politics in the intelligence community.

Conservatives Unravel Deep State Coup Against Trump

In this long article we summarize the tangled backstory conservatives have been able to unravel about the latest Deep State coup against President Trump. The details they have developed reveal a breathtaking assault on the Constitution by a conspiracy of Democrats and Far Left operatives in the intelligence agencies, in Congress and in Soros-funded organizations.

What Conservatives Are Saying About Impeachment

We're with our friend Mark Levin: What a stupid, baseless, phony scandal the Democrats, Nevertrumpers & media are trying to promote. Endless conga line of Democrats and the like crying crocodile tears while covering up for the crooked Biden family. It won’t work.

Is Biden The Real Target Of The Ukraine Scandal?

In interviews The Daily Beast conducted with multiple progressive Democrats and Warren supporters, their chief advice to Warren was don’t rush to Biden’s defense against Trump. In other words, they’re hoping Trump and the Ukraine scandal take out Biden, but they don't want to get caught cheering Sleepy Joe's demise.

“A Completely Ludicrous Quote” Gets Treated As Real News

We agree with President Trump, there is a huge difference between a mistake of fact and the reporting of social media comments that today’s “journalists” treat as news and report without vetting. Some system of holding those who promulgate, and often profit from fake news needs to be found.

Democrats Have A Three-Part Plan For The Politics Of Impeachment

House Democrats have a well-thought-out plan to regain control of the federal government; part one is to push the message that President Trump is engaged in a coverup. Trump supporters should hit every social media platform, letter to the editor column and other public fora with the question “Cover up of what?” every time a Democrat or Left-leaning media personality surfaces to make the charge.

Judicial Watch Busts FISA Court Corruption

In response to a Judicial Watch lawsuit it has been revealed the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court held no hearings on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) spy warrant applications targeting Carter Page, a former volunteer advisor to the Trump campaign.

Corrupt Democrats Are Not 'News'

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

When seeking to demonstrate the degree to which the "objective" news media act like Democratic partisans, the best place to start is scandals, as in "Have you heard all about the latest Republican scandal?" versus "What Democrat scandal?" Think of this, and then feel free to laugh at NBC's Chuck Todd, who proclaimed on Sunday's "Meet the Press" that charges of a liberal bias in the media are an old Roger Ailes tactic "not based in much fact."

Rep. Chris Collins' indictment is a reminder that big government brings big corruption

Editors, Washington Examiner

Collins and those of his ilk who are often flattered with the label "moderates" want government to embrace business intimately. His indictment Wednesday on charges related to alleged insider trading, and frankly his entire record in Congress, remind us how intertwining industry and the state multiplies corruption. While he votes with conservatives on tax cuts, he votes with left-wing Democrats on spending and subsidies. He thinks government should actively help business rather than get out of the way of businesses.

Endorsement: Carol Swain For Mayor Of Nashville

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
After the recent scandals plaguing Nashville City Hall only an outsider with knowledge and courage can do what needs to be done to clean up Nashville city government, and the only person I see with those qualifications in the upcoming May 24 special election is former Vanderbilt University professor Dr. Carol Swain.

First Investigate, then Dismantle, the FBI

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The FBI no longer looks out for the American citizen. It looks out for itself or the leaders it chooses. It deserves to be dismantled and a new FBI built from the ground up. An entirely new system must be devised. As perspicacious as the Senate and House committees have been, they are not enough. Congresspeople alone cannot oversee this, nor should they have to.

End the 9/11 Syndrome at the FBI

John Fund, National Review

It’s time for those responsible for failures at the FBI to be fired. When only small fry are let go, the complacency among upper management remains and problems are swept under the rug. Only with new blood and a fresh approach can systemic problems within a bureaucracy be addressed.

What Do We Do About the FBI?

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

We need a through investigation via a full-on commission of the FBI and the DOJ themselves and, unfortunately, the intelligence agencies as well that could -- and most likely would -- take years. So many issues are at play here it's mind-boggling.  How do we deal with the dishonesty of our officials and bureaucrats when those same people are the keepers of our secrets and the enforcers of our laws (both of which are related)?  When is transparency necessary?  When is secrecy justified? Who will watch the watchers? Are the congressional oversight committees enough?  Do they have sufficient power?

Obama produced sinister miniseries for Democrats

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Obama officials pressured federal investigators to back off investigations into huge money-laundering, weapons and drug trafficking operations by the terrorist group Hezbollah. It was all in the name of placating Iran — Hezbollah’s patron nation — so that the Obama administration could ink a ridiculously lopsided deal on Iran’s nuclear program. A deal that scored Iran hundreds of millions in cash and billions more in sanctions relief.
