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.

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.

The toll-free Capitol Switchboard number (1-866-220-0044), make that call to demand that Congress prohibit US military and US government civilian retirement funds from being invested in Communist China by Blackrock’s Larry Fink.

Please Mr. President Not Another Infrastructure Spending Bill

What’s needed now is not a new gravy train for unions, Democrat state and local governments and the various potential beneficiaries of government largess who are already deploying their lobbyists to Capitol Hill. What is needed is a plan to get Americans back to the jobs they had and the businesses they ran before these government-imposed lockdowns upended their lives.

Here's How to Defuse the Debt Bomb

Stephen Moore, The Epoch Times

Myth 1: Trump created these deficits. Myth 2: Trump tax cuts have cost $1.2 trillion. Myth 3: Entitlements are the reason the debt is exploding. Myth 4: Taxing the rich will solve the problem. Myth 5: Democrats have a plan to bring down the deficit. Myth 6: The deficit and debt problems are hopeless. Here's how we balance the budget in two steps: First, get to 3% annual economic growth, which will mean more jobs, more taxpayers and fewer welfare payments. Second, impose an enforceable cap on overall spending at the inflation rate of 2% over 15 years. This gets us to zero deficits. Is that so hard? If there is a national will to break our addiction to deficit spending, there is a way.

Palin: Omnibus Doesn't Stop O's Amnesty

Sarah Palin, Facebook

When you cut through all the “inside baseball” stuff in this Omnibusl, you're left with 2 cold facts: this bill doesn't defund Obama's amnesty (so he gets to reward lawbreakers with your tax dollars) and it adds to our dangerous, unsustainable debt. 

Spending, the Deficit, the Debt and Treason

With their near-treasonous level of spending Democrats and Republicans in Congress have created an economic crisis that is about to overwhelm the most productive economy in the world and wreak havoc on America for generations to come.

Obama’s Amnesty Will Loot Social Security To Give Your Money To Illegal Aliens

Social Security and Medicare already consume 41 percent of the federal budget. In fiscal year 2014 the government ran a deficit of $483.35 billion. This means that the United States will be borrowing billions more from the Chinese to pay benefits to illegal aliens who, by their Obama-granted claim on Social Security and Medicare benefits, will also rapidly advance the bankruptcy of the two programs. SIGN and SHARE OUR PETITION TO STOP OBAMA'S EXECUTIVE AMNESTY!

Tea Party Senate candidate Chris McDaniel told a crowd of tea partiers that it’s time for the GOP to stand strong and stop giving in to Obama and the Democrats on issues like Obamacare and the national debt. 

Debt Ceiling Battle Looms

Peter Schroeder, The Hill

Obama and Congress will be plunged into another battle over the debt ceiling when they return to DC from the holiday break. Due to the gov't shutdown, Congress must act on an increase in the $16.7 trillion borrowing limit far sooner than expected.
