Assault on America, Day 553: Trump touts a Garden of Heroes, Biden counters with racism

President Trump’s idea to create a “National Garden of American Heroes” was a stroke of brilliance for a lagging campaign that needed a new and fresh rallying point after months of health scare panic and political violence. Joe Biden can’t hope to match Trump’s positive message of reverence for all of American history. Trump is back on the right path.

Assault on America, Day 552: Americans get nowhere by taking media version of new normal

It has indeed been a long time since we’ve felt “normal” in America, and there’s a vast difference of opinion as to whether we’ll ever reach that level of comfort again. Truth and facts are always our best allies, but if the mainstream establishment media won’t deliver them, then it’s up to the rest of us to get the word out.

Assault on America, Day 551: What’s Joe doing down there in the basement? We want to know

With the presidential nominee hardly ever seen these days one can only imagine what’s going on behind closed doors in the Biden basement. Be it the renaming of Washington DC or strategizing on how best to keep their man boxed-in for another four months, Democrats will eventually have to face real campaign vetting. Their day of reckoning is coming.

Assault on America, Day 547: Founding Fathers vs. Marxist #BlackLivesMatter, a comparison

In normal times, Independence Day was something all Americans would honor if not celebrate. But as has been demonstrated a lot recently, there are many in this country who seek to trash and remove the past. We can’t allow them. The proponents of Black Lives Matter are nothing like the Founding Fathers. Now more than ever, we recognize it.

Assault on America, Day 546: To Democrats, police reform is all about grift and naked politics

Even if times are changing, Democrats in Congress don’t seem to alter their approaches any. If there’s a way to clog up the system with additional bureaucracy and litigation, they’ll find it. The liberal party rejected Senator Tim Scott’s police reform bill purely due to political reasons -- and because the South Carolinian is an African-American Republican. Shameful.

Assault on America, Day 545: No retreating on reopening the economy despite COVID-19 spike

News of a dramatic increase in COVID-19 cases last week was seemingly greeted with relief by elements of the media. If true, the naysayers argue, the economy can’t be reopened, people will still be out of work and government will need to act -- again -- to take care of the unemployed. Then there’s the alternative, which is full speed ahead. Which way should we go?

Assault on America, Day 544: Yes, Obama, we cling to guns, religion and conservative media

Having Democrats blaming conservative media figures for the way things are in the U.S. today isn’t new. Bill Clinton all-but pinned 1995’s Oklahoma City bombing on his conservative critics. Then Hillary coined it “The vast rightwing conspiracy.” President Trump is no fan of the “fake news” media either. The battle for the news narrative will continue.

Assault on America, Day 541: ‘Preacher’ Trump should take a page from 2016, pack substance

President Trump is one of the most talented politicians of the modern age, yet even he could stand to alter his approach to politics from time to time. Elections are always about the future and at his next rally, Trump would do well to talk a lot more about what he intends to do in his second term, something that would reassure more than his already dedicated fans.

Assault on America, Day 540: Crime up in cities, but who to blame? Depends on who you ask

The 2020 election is destined to be one heck of a nasty fight. Who will get the blame for the rancor? Hint: His name starts with Donald and his last name rhymes with “bump.” And it’s not because he’s mean or racist or was a celebrity and regular presence in the tabloids. It’s because Trump represents a complete departure from the status quo. To the elites, that’s bad.

Assault on America, Day 539: Democrats and the media play ‘unity’ card, but it’s a huge bluff

Democrats did their darndest to ruin President Trump’s Tulsa rally, but if you listened to the content and themes of the speech, it still was a huge success. The opposition party may depict themselves as “unified,” but just below the surface is a seething cauldron of anger and disagreement. It’s only a matter of time before it explodes into something more sinister.

Assault on America, Day 538: Do Democrats still want to swap Andrew Cuomo for Joe Biden?

There haven’t been many bright spots in the political realm lately, but one was when Gov. Andrew Cuomo fell out of favor with the adoring establishment media. Common sense doesn’t always matter in our politically correct modern society, but numbers still carry some weight. Cuomo failed to safeguard his constituents, and the truth caught up with him.

Assault on America, Day 537: Trump rocks in Tulsa, Biden still missing in (political) action

As demonstrated at the Trump rally on Saturday night, the president’s supporters will vote for him because they see his accomplishments and back his agenda. Biden’s people will choose him because they’re against Trump. The distinction will reveal itself on Election Day. In the meantime, where the heck is Grampa Joe?

Assault on America, Day 534: Millions rejoice as 2020 Trump campaign relaunches in Tulsa

Saturday marks yet another milestone in an already beyond-belief 2020 campaign. President Donald Trump will speak to an assembled crowd of tens of thousands in Tulsa, but his message will be transmitted to millions more across the country. The left has had its say of late -- it’s time to counterpunch. Expect Trump to come out fighting.

Assault on America, Day 533: NFL players, Don’t lecture us on the meaning of the American flag

On behalf of other like-minded Americans, I am “raising awareness” of our views. “Raising awareness” is big in the “woke” world, isn’t it? See you on the field. Or not. And we’ll be saluting the flag because it represents all of us as one nation, under God, indivisible with JUSTICE for all.

Assault on America, Day 532: Will GOP ruling class try to replace Trump ahead of November?

With differing opinions of late as to how President Trump’s handled the coronavirus pandemic as well as the earth-shattering riots and protests, it’s difficult to see how either party unifies ahead of the all-important national election. Establishment Republicans will never be happy with Trump; hard core leftists won’t accept Biden. What will tomorrow bring?

How Donald Trump’s campaign team is like Hillary Clinton’s

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

If anything can get Trump’s attention, saying his team is like Clinton’s should do it. Ultimately, managers and staff don’t win or lose campaigns. Candidates do. And that includes the incumbent president. Only Trump can fix the problems Trump is creating. None of this is to say the election is a foregone conclusion. There is still time for the president to get focused and make sure he and his campaign articulate a clear, consistent vision for a second term. The reality is that Trump, who pulled off the great upset four years ago, now finds himself the underdog in a race that could have been a lock.

Assault on America, Day 531: Once beautiful Pacific Northwest now capital to nihilists & thugs

Seattle may be the latest example of a once proud American city that’s become ungovernable and unlivable, but it won’t be the last unless political leaders stand up and put an end to the nonsense. Survey after survey shows citizens want a much stronger law enforcement presence. Are “autonomous zones” here to stay?

Assault on America, Day 530: News flash: Dems won’t defund the police, but slavery reparations?

These days it certainly isn’t easy to tell what Michelle Obama and other Democrats are truly after, since pleas to completely defund police departments aren’t likely to succeed. Digging just below the surface, there appears to be a whole host of possible motivations, most of which involve multiple dollar signs and more white liberal groveling to the masters of racial politics.

Assault on America, Day 527: Media’s best friends: swamp things and misfits bashing Trump

The media’s suggestion that Trump would lose support because certain well-known wishy-washy establishment Republicans announce their opposition to his reelection is way off base. The president will rise -- or fall -- based on his ability to rouse his base and bring enough independents along to prevail. There’s still plenty of time to get it done.

Assault on America, Day 526: George Mercer and the true meaning of protesting injustice

In these most challenging of times, Democrats promote racial tribalism to end “divisiveness” but only succeed in driving people farther apart. Perhaps it’s because of a lack of governing agenda or a strong and puerile need to defeat President Trump in November, they’ll go to extreme lengths to mask a sham. Here’s thinking most Americans won’t buy it.
