2020 campaign

Game Time 2020

Ned Ryun, American Greatness

Right now, the 2020 presidential race is very tight. Trump actually gets the nod for a slim lead. First, never, ever underestimate the power of incumbency: only five presidents have lost their reelection bid since 1900. Trump has a dedicated base of supporters and, because of structural advantages in the Electoral College, is in the pole position. But it’s the models and economic indicators that have proven reliable over multiple presidential elections that should give Democrats and their lying mainstream media propagandists pause. It is a very real race.

Assault on America, Day 617: Democrats, True Lies and the 2021 agenda that scares us to death

It doesn’t take administering truth serum for 2020’s politicians to provide hints as to what they’ll do next year if they’re successful in the upcoming election. Democrats will use their power to (most likely) get rid of the filibuster and then quickly pass a liberal wish list of epic proportions. It’s up to conservatives to beat them in November.

Assault on America, Day 616: Democrats talk up Russia to mask election sabotage schemes

It’s just a couple days past Labor Day and already Democrats are going over the top in predicting Russia will help President Trump steal the election. There’s no evidence that Russian intelligence has infiltrated the American political machinery, yet it’s fun to spread preposterous notions of double-dealing and underhanded influence. They’ll stop at nothing to win.

Assault on America, Day 615: Civility at the expense of good policy is no political virtue

If you asked the average person whether he or she would rather have a president who validates their political views or dwells on “civility” and getting along with the opposition at the expense of good policy, the majority would choose the former. In November, Americans will choose the candidate with accomplishments and leave the niceties to someone else.

Assault on America, Day 611: Joe Biden preps to hit the road, but will anyone go to listen to him?

With the campaign seemingly having started months ago, Labor Day will not mark the beginning of the presidential election season this year. Joe Biden says he’s planning to start campaigning like a normal candidate would, but there are questions on how much he can handle. Meanwhile, Trump has seized the initiative. It will be bumpy from here on out.

Assault on America, Day 610: What would a Joe Biden conversation on race and riots sound like?

Biden was trapped between a rock and a hard place. He couldn’t condemn the violence and looting without infringing on the territory of his own voters. And he couldn’t not speak out… because he was being undermined by his lack of action. Is it considered “racist” to take a side? Democrats are backed in a corner on this one and there’s no way to go but down.

Trump Hits Campaign Trail As Biden Hits Skids

David Catron, The American Spectator

Trump and Pence are out reminding voters of Biden’s opposition to desegregation, cozy relationship with white supremacists and his penchant for insulting remarks. “Working class Joe” remains aloof from actual working class voters though he does emerge from his basement to coddle billionaires at fundraisers. Meanwhile, Trump has embarked on a 21st century adaptation of the venerable Whistle Stop Tour to explain why he deserves a second term and describe the dystopian future that awaits us if Biden and his masters get their tentacles on the presidency.

Assault on America, Day 609: Post-convention polls don’t match experience and common sense

With two months to go until Election Day, the mainstream establishment media will continue relying on polls showing Joe Biden comfortably ahead to paint a portrait of the horserace that doesn’t match common experience. Trump backers are even more in his corner than they were in 2016, and who really feels strongly about voting for Joe Biden?

Assault on America, Day 608: No such thing as truth to Joe Biden and Democrat culture benders

It's a sign of the times that there’s no middle ground between the parties, but it’s not surprising considering there’s no let-up in the American culture war. Both sides can’t be right, truth does exist and for the short term, it’s up to the voters to determine which party’s arguments are more compelling. Donald Trump knows which side he comes down on.

Dinesh D'Souza’s New Movie ‘Trump Card’

Dinesh D'Souza's new movie “Trump Card'' (available on demand on October 9th) is a long overdue expose of the socialism, corruption, and gangsterism that now define the Democratic Party. Whether it is the creeping socialism of Joe Biden or the overt socialism of Bernie Sanders, the film reveals what is unique about modern socialism, who is behind it, why it’s evil and how we can work together with President Trump to stop it.

Assault on America, Day 607: In Joe Biden’s America, Hillary tells Grampa Joe not to concede

Now that the 2020 presidential campaign is officially on, Democrats aren’t waiting to try and spin the outcome as illegitimate and “stolen” by Republicans and President Donald Trump. Liberals like Hillary Clinton act irresponsibly when they instruct Americans to reject the results, no matter how dramatically the victory might be for the incumbent.

Assault on America, Day 604: RNC vs. DNC, Day 4: Trump recital earns encore on Election Day

Entering to singer Lee Greenwood’s legendary anthem “God Bless the U.S.A.”, President Donald Trump delivered a performance for the ages on the final night of the 2020 Republican convention. Taken as a whole, it was a fitting conclusion to what turned out to be one of the best party celebrations of all-time. Now the hard work begins to get Trump elected again.

Assault on America, Day 603: RNC vs. DNC, Day 3: Pence, Old Glory, and the real Donald Trump

With Old Glory as the backdrop, Vice President Mike Pence closed out another well-produced, performed and inspired day at the 2020 Republican National Convention. Democrats and the media were desperately trying to steer the narrative back towards COVID-19, but there’s more to this election than scaring people. Trump and the GOP offer optimism instead.

Assault on America, Day 602: RNC vs. DNC, Day 2: Republicans finally get message on messaging

Donald Trump the showman was on full display on Day two of the Republican National Convention, which further highlighted his administration’s many accomplishments while serving as a stark contrast to the downer negativity of the Democrats. First Lady Melania Trump wrapped up the evening with a very appropriate summation of the greatness of America.

Convention is Trump's chance to right his faltering campaign

Editors, Washington Examiner

If the nation's political sympathies continue on their current trajectory, Trump will lose. So he needs to use the convention to recalibrate and to improve his strategy for the fall. Trump is not widely popular among voters. But in many swing states, the extreme ideas of Biden's coalition on taxes, spending, abortion, guns, the gig economy, energy, and other issues are not popular either. If he’s going to turn his campaign around, he must get voters to understand the election is a choice between two coalitions that represent drastically different visions for the country.

Assault on America, Day 601: RNC vs. DNC, Day 1: Republicans refute Dem fear and loathing

The first day of the Republican National Convention showed a distinct departure from the overly contrived political infomercial and fundraising telethon Democrats put on last week. Not only was the presentation more convention-like, it wasn’t as though we were viewing an hours-long depression therapy session. Kudos to Trump and the organizers for a job well done.

Assault on America, Day 600: MAGA agenda Trumps doom and gloom at the RNC this week

All of the Democrats’ -- and Joe Biden’s -- myriad of issues will rise to the surface in the time remaining before Election Day. The liberal party seems to be on cloud nine after their virtual convention last week, but the Trump party, a.k.a. the GOP, gets its shot at defining the narrative beginning tonight. Will the president rise to the occasion? Definitely.

Assault on America, Day 597: Joe n’ Kamala Day 4: Racism, COVID-19 lies, and lots of videotape

Like a World War II battleship, Democrats spent four days and nights lofting shells against Trump and Republicans hoping to soften up the ground for an invasion. Next week it’s the Republicans’ turn, and they’ll do their best to turn back the enemy. Joe Biden is now the Democrat nominee. Bring on the fall campaign. Let’s talk about issues, should we?

Assault on America, Day 596: Joe ‘n Kamala, Day 3: Mean Girls Night at the DNC w/Obama cameo

With Joe Biden set to speak on Thursday night, Democrats will finish up the first of its kind virtual convention. As expected, the first three days were one continuous Trump-savaging grunge fest. Day Three -- forever to be known as “Mean Girls” night -- was much of the same. Which leaves viewers with just one question: Where the heck is Hunter Biden?

Assault on America, Day 595: Joe ‘n Kamala, Day 2, plus satirical look at Biden’s last VP vet

All throughout Day 2 of the Democrat National Convention, one theme emerged: America needs government. That’s the main difference between Democrats and Republicans. Democrats portray people as helpless lambs who can’t survive without Uncle Sam dishing out a handout, cutting a check and administering medicine.
