The EU Commission is will unlikely accept Chequers, and neither will Chequers get through parliament. Checquers is already further than many Brexiteers were willing to budge.
It is not up to the Commission to accept or reject it. In the first instance is the council of ministers, then the EU parliament and finally the 37 regional and national parliaments.

Do a bit of research on how things work for heavens sakes!

It's not that the EU "hold all the power", it's just their inflexibility in their approach to negotiations.
Why should the EU have to compromise on any of it's principles? Just because you say so??? in case you have forgotten the 27 represents 450m people, there is no reason whatsoever for them to feel the need to compromise for the sake of a third country.

Every single proposal has been blocked by UK red lines. Their problem.
