2020 Election

Assault on America, Day 166: With debts mounting, how much should Americans provide?

With Democrats like Bernie Sanders campaigning on the necessity to spend more to provide a higher standard of living for everyone, it’s about time Americans had a conversation about the difference between “needs” and “wants.” Don’t trust a big spending politician to explain the distinction.

Media Claims Notwithstanding, Trump Is Favored To Be Re-Elected

Mollie Hemingway, The Federalist

Democrats could take a risky route and nominate someone who taps into the energy of the leftist base, such as Warren or Sanders. But then there’s a question of whether Trump would throttle them and their unpopular positions in a general election match-up. Rather than assess the race honestly, including that Trump is overseeing a healthy domestic and global situation and is currently a favorite to win re-election, the media and other Resistance members need to keep up the illusion that Trump is an aberration and in dire trouble, a narrative they would like to run through the fall of next year in the hope that 2020 will reward their efforts to influence voters in a way 2016 did not.

Assault on America, Day 163: For Trump and the GOP in 2020, it ain’t just the economy, stupid

No one ethnic voting bloc will determine the outcome of next year’s election but taken as a whole, Republicans can’t afford to assume they’ll do better just because the economy is strong. Everyone wants a better life and it’s up to the political class to convince voters it will happen.

Assault on America, Day 162: Trump trails Dems in Texas and other key states. Time to panic?

Politics is politics and polls are polls. The 2020 election is shaping up to be one heck of a struggle, and reality suggests many citizens haven’t made up their minds on who they’ll choose a year and a half before Election Day. Opinion surveys are a snapshot it time; take them with a grain of salt.

Ignore The Never Trump Losers Who Are OK With Liberals Winning

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Never Trumpers are no threat to the elite because, at their hollow core, they support the existing power structure. That’s why they are so blind to the manifest corruption of the institutions that they are a part of and are therefore invested in. That’s why these saps were so easily suckered by the RUSSIA TREASON COLLUSION!!!! scam. And that’s why Trump and those of us who support him terrify them – because, unlike the Conservative, Inc., cabal, we have nothing to lose if the whole teetering edifice of our crummy ruling class collapses under the sheer weight of its lies and incompetence.

Assault on America, Day 161: Hillary, Obama, GOP heads and the politics of cowardice & losing

Along with his many predictions of “winning” President Trump’s known for calling his opponents “losers” and gloating over their failures. Such talk may not go over well on a playground, but in the world of politics you can say anything you want as long as you back it up. Trump’s done it -- a lot.

The 2020 News Cycle Will Look Very Different

Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness

The media for three years obsessed over a false “Trump did it” story. But in the next 17 months, the storyline may change from the myth of the “walls are closing in” on the president to the reality that Obama-era officials committed serial felonies. If one is progressive and in dispassionate fashion calibrates the present Democratic field, and anticipates the likely quite different news cycle that is emerging post-Mueller, then one logically would escalate the rhetoric of “Trump should be impeached,” “Trump is a racist,” “Trump is a fascist,” “Trump is mentally ill,” and “Trump is a cheat.” Otherwise, the Democrats and the media have nothing.

Assault on America, Day 160: Biden honeymoon about to be buried under avalanche of facts

Now that the real work’s about to start in the 2020 presidential race it’s clear Democrats will have their hands full trying to figure out how to treat Joe Biden. The media is quick to highlight all of Biden’s supposed advantages, but when his flaws start hitting the light of day, watch out.

Assault on America, Day 159: How damaged would things be today if Romney won in 2012?

Whether it’s Democrats or certain Republicans (like Mitt Romney) it’s clear Americans will be dissatisfied as long as the establishment mans the government’s levers of power. President Trump shows no let-up in his drive to drain the swamp -- but he’ll need many more liberty-loving helpers to make it a reality.

Assault on America, Day 156: Trump bashers’ conduct defies apples to oranges comparison

It’s extremely hard to compare today’s political predicament to those of the past because there’s never been a president quite like Donald Trump and Democrats of today are a breed apart from their predecessors. Impeachment will happen -- or it won’t -- and life will stay putrid and stagnant in the DC swamp.

Assault on America, Day 155: Thank God our fighting men had big guns on D-Day, 1944

Liberals aren’t interested in a “national conversation” on guns. They only want to confiscate them while scoffing at the argument that the Second Amendment guarantees your right to protect yourself. Blame the gun -- it’s the liberal thing to do. It makes liberals feel useful and the gullible and uninformed actually follow along. Nonsense.

Assault on America, Day 154: 2020 confirmation battle would make Brett Kavanaugh’s look tame

Few issues would engender more interest and energy than a Supreme Court vacancy during next year’s presidential campaign. Should one occur, the public battle would certainly make history. Mitch McConnell was correct to say he’d move forward with confirmation hearings… but would the nation survive?

Assault on America, Day 153: Since when does equality mean some are more equal than others?

Perhaps we’re fortunate prominent liberals like Taylor Swift keep highlighting the absurdity of their causes. The “Equality Act” is the most egregious recent example of a politically correct mindset gone bad. Those who truly stand up for “equality” will remember what the word actually means. Why is there no middle ground?

Assault on America, Day 152: What would happen if liberals boycotted every pro-life state?

Pro-life state legislatures should be commended for pushing the envelope on the human rights issue. As liberal challenges to abortion restriction laws mount, the Supreme Court will decide. Here’s thinking Hollywood actors’ and producers’ absurd boycotts won’t accomplish a thing.

Assault on America, Day 149: Distraught Dems out of options as impeachment dreams dwindle

Democrats’ dreams of impeachment aren’t helping to win anyone over. Robert Mueller’s pathetic impromptu press conference this week didn’t reveal anything new, either, and time’s running out for Trump’s enemies to make something stick. Sooner or later voters will pay attention… what will they see?

Assault on America, Day 148: Grandstanding Dems should personally embrace illegal aliens

The American elites are completely out-of-touch on most things but never more so than with illegal immigration. Those holed-up in ivory towers show little concern or compassion for folks who must live with the epidemic of issues aliens bring with them. Perhaps it’s time the snobs embraced the problem on a personal level. Would they learn?

Assault on America, Day 147: What does Beto -- or any Democrat -- know about farming & trade?

Up until recently the 2020 Democrat presidential race featured a bunch of candidates saying and doing everything they could to attract attention and boost name recognition. Now it’s almost time for the Trump bashers to get serious… Brace yourself for a lot of crazy stuff in the coming months.

Assault on America, Day 146: If Democrats stay in power the earth might not last 12 more years

Anyone who looks at today’s political gridlock and thinks it’s the system’s fault clearly isn’t seeing the true picture. One party wants to push through reforms as fast as they can write them and the other hopes nothing ever gets passed. Nobody wins, but the American people certainly lose... big time.

Dems Ignore the Voters on Impeachment

David Catron, The American Spectator

Democrats badly need a new narrative. Regardless of what they are hearing from politicians in safe seats, pundits who want a juicy story, and billionaires with more money than sense — impeachment is a loser for the Democrats. If they continue to obsessively attack the President they will wreck their party just as Ahab destroyed the Pequod, and Trump will survive relatively unscathed. So, if the Democrats want to lose the 2020 presidential race as well as yet another short-lived House majority, they should keep ignoring the will of the voters.

Assault on America, Day 142: Memorial Day means honoring the American flag, not dissing it

Memorial Day is a time when we silently give thanks to those who are no longer here to receive it, a day when saluting the flag and paying homage to the values our country represents is of paramount importance. America is made of inspiring stories of personal achievement -- let’s all be thankful.
