2020 Election

The Dems Could Bern It All Down

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Let’s be clear about one thing – Bernie Sanders is not cute and he’s not funny. He’s an unrepentant adherent of a vicious ideology that has butchered better than 100 million people in the last hundred years. The risk of electing a doctrinaire Marxist is open civil war – with his murder-fetishizing acolytes on the anti-freedom side along with the Never Trump True Conservatives™ who contend that True Conservatism™ demands we submit to communist rule because Trump tweets mean things at fugly celebs. If the Democrats insist on Sanders, and through some horrible chain of events he gets the majority of the electoral votes, they will have lit the fire that could Bern it all down.

Four Impeachment Witnesses The Senate Must Call

The toll-free Capitol Switchboard number (1-866-220-0044), we urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Senators to demand that if there are witnesses called in the impeachment trial of President Trump, Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, Eric Ciaramella and Adam Schiff should be the first ones called.

Another Deep State Smear Of Trump

There’s nothing that says the Administration has to run out and obligate the funds Congress appropriates on the first day of the Fiscal Year. The Pentagon spends more than $2 billion every day, and plenty of Americans would like to see that number go down. To claim the President broke the law because the Pentagon couldn’t spend $35 million in 19 days is nothing but a political smear.

Assault on America, Day 380: Democrat physics lesson shows Bernie and Liz can’t share space

It doesn’t take a legendary physicist to suggest two politicians can’t both occupy the same space at the same time. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have been walking a fine line since the beginning of the Democrat presidential race. With a little over two weeks to go until Iowa, the pressure is mounting on both of them.

Does Biden’s Experience Being Wrong Qualify Him To Be President?

Biden will have to convince voters outside the Democrat establishment that his experience of voting against the Gulf War, voting in favor of the invasion of Iraq that’s led to over a decade of war, thousands dead, and billions spent, nearly twenty years of failed nation building in Afghanistan and not sending a SEAL team to kill Osama bin Laden is the kind of experience that they want in their next President.

Conservatives Lukewarm On China Trade Deal Miss The Point

A massive Chinese purchase of agricultural products will pump much needed cash into the economies of a dozen Heartland states before the 2020 election. So, it is little wonder that Donald Trump, always the keen-eyed negotiator started there, instead of with the provisions that benefit Silicon Valley, where he is not going to get any political benefit no matter what he does.

Assault on America, Day 379: Awful Virginia Democrat gun grab begs for a Trumpian retort

The presidential election is still months away and there’s much that can and will happen between now and then to influence it, but President Trump can help his cause today by highlighting the awful Democrat-led gun grab in Virginia. By doing so, the commonwealth might just go back to being a red state, too.

January 20 2A Lobby Day: Join Virginians In Desperate Fight To Save Second Amendment Rights

Virginia gunowners are in a desperate fight to keep their property and to preserve the rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. One of the best ways you can help in this fight – even if you do not live in Virginia – is to participate in the Virginia Citizens Defense League-sponsored lobby day at the Virginia State Capitol on January 20, 2020, please read on for details on the day's events.

Bernie’s Gulag Archipelago

Our friend James O’Keefe and his Project Veritas team have done it again, this time exposing exactly what Bernie Sanders’ supporters have in mind for you if you disagree with them. It will be a Gulag where you will be re-educated, but earn a living wage and have conjugal visits, says Bernie field organizer Kyle Jurek.

Assault on America, Day 378: Democrat debate shows worst place to be on February 3 is in Iowa

America is watching. The more Democrats talk, the better it is for Trump. The Trump campaign should advocate for a short impeachment trial to encourage his Democrat opposition to remain in the spotlight. Sometimes doing less actually accomplishes more. Iowa Democrats have a heck of a hard choice on February 3.

Questions for Trump and the Democratic presidential candidates

Cal Thomas, Washington Times

As high-minded as most Democrats try to sound when trying to remove Mr. Trump from office, their real motives appear transparent. Out of touch doesn’t begin to describe most people running for, or seeking to remain, in office. They consult pollsters for what people want to hear, instead of telling them what they need to hear. It’s like gratifying children by allowing them to eat their dessert first and if they have no room or interest in vegetables, it’s OK. Politicians, including the president, should be asked serious questions during this year’s election campaign, instead of the media’s fixation on impeachment, polls and the horse race. Here are a few that come to mind.

Let’s Fill The Theaters Showing The Justice Clarence Thomas Movie

Created Equal: Justice Clarence Thomas In His Own Words is the best movie you are going to see in a long time, not just for Justice Thomas’ eloquent affirmation of conservative values, but for the movie’s celebration of Clarence Thomas’ indominable spirit. Tickets will go on sale for locations listed here starting January 27th, let’s fill the theaters showing the movie.

Assault on America, Day 377: Are they serious? Will Bernie Sanders really win in Iowa?

Tonight’s seventh Democrat debate will probably be much like the previous six editions, only even whiter and more contentious. The dividing line between the liberal candidates is clearer than ever and the top tier is digging-in for a final push to Iowa. Will Bernie blow a gasket tonight? We all want to know.

Now Is The Time To Win The War With Iran

Demonstrators have taken to the streets calling for Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to step down and for those responsible for shooting down the Ukrainian jetliner killing all 176 aboard prosecuted. The weakness of Iran’s system of Wilayat al-Faqih has never been more obvious and the opportunity to undermine it from within rarely greater.

Assault on America, Day 376: Impeachment sham the type of DC circus no one finds gratifying

There’s little doubting many Democrats now realize that impeachment has turned into a hopeless fiasco without any clear chance at redemption. With each moment that goes by Speaker Nancy Pelosi digs the hole a little deeper, a mistake voters aren’t likely to forget as the calendar moves towards election day.

Handicapping The Democrat Losers

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

The race is Trump’s to lose. Between a sprinting economy and a staggering Democrat field, he’s the odds-on favorite in the general. But the real election issue is not going to be his past achievements. Trump’s achievements are now baked into the pie – those who dig him assume them and those who hate him don’t care how good he’s doing. They want him gone even if he takes the economy and America’s newfound standing in the world as Earth’s Rebel Badboy with him. The smart money is on the dumb bunny, Wandering Paws Joe. And Trump will annihilate him – all the cover the garbage media has provided him will only serve to keep him weak and vulnerable for when Trump lays into him.

Conservatives Split On War Powers

We are inclined to agree that raising the war powers issue at this time gives aid and comfort to the enemy – but the enemy in question is not Iran, it is the Democrats who want only to make points with their Trump-hating base and render President Trump impotent in the face of Iranian threats and aggression.

Assault on America, Day 373: Many signs point to disgraced early exit for ‘Pocahontas’ Warren

Successful presidential candidates must endure and survive the most thorough vetting of any job on earth. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren didn’t figure to be the sturdiest of candidates -- she can’t even get her background straight -- and the process exposed her as a wavering fraud. Will she exit after Iowa and New Hampshire?

By Pandering To The Left, Democrats Are Repeating The Mistakes Of 2016

John Daniel Davidson, The Federalist

The lesson of 2016, then, is that if you’re running for the Democratic nomination in 2020 and Trump takes out a major terrorist, just say it’s a good thing but look, Trump doesn’t have a broader strategy to deal with Iran, or he isn’t consistent on foreign policy, or it’s not that big of a deal compared to his impeachment—say anything, just don’t hem and haw and downplay what a bad guy Suleimani was because you want to score political points with the radical left wing of your party. Sanders has much in common with Trump, whose appeal in 2016 was largely based on the fact that he wasn’t a politician, couldn’t be bought by special interests, and had been saying the same things for years.

Sorry Democrats, There Is A Trump Doctrine, And It’s A Good One

Despite what the Democrats and their media allies want Americans to believe about President Trump and his foreign policy, Trump has been remarkably consistent in his approach to rogue states, such as North Korea and Iran. And the Trump doctrine makes a lot more sense than sending them pallets of cash or refusing to engage with them and pretending they are not there.
