Assault on America, Day 106: Easter, American politics and the hope of resurrection & recovery

Easter reminds us of the power of redemption and second comings, particularly relevant this year with the tragic near-destruction of the historic Notre Dame Cathedral. American politics could see some surprising comebacks of its own next year, in Alabama and in nationwide House races. Stay tuned.

Watching Bernie at the Fox News Town Hall: Memories of the Soviet Union

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Because he is such a true believer in the classic Eric Hoffer sense, Sanders can be an effective campaigner. He never shows, probably never even experiences, doubt, even when the facts are radically against him. The ends justify the means, don't you know? It's mean to say this, but by repeating this long-discredited socialist cant until he is blue in the face, Bernie Sanders is a kind of child abuser, injecting his meretricious swill into our all-too-gullible youth who have nowhere near the education to analyze it. We saw that in action on Monday night. The Fox town hall should be a good training ground for Trump. He should pay close attention to it, keep it close by as a training video.

Assault on America, Day 105: GOP establishment remains Trump’s most visible 2020 opponent

Instead of joining President Trump in his relentless drive to steer American government back towards its constitutional limits, the Republican establishment is taking the opposite approach. It just goes to show, it’ll take much longer than four years to change the rotten culture in Washington.

Assault on America, Day 104: Both R’s and D’s can’t get their arms around the media’s lies

Democrats and Republicans will never view the media the same way, though at times both parties have beefs with how reporters handle issues. All politicians wish the media would pass along facts without embellishment, but fiscally speaking, it’s an ugly picture any way you look at it.

Assault on America, Day 103: Shortage of DC true believers threatens Trump’s MAGA mission

It could be said Washington DC’s biggest problem is its shortage of true believers, accountable people who devote themselves to the political leadership’s mission and willingly endure hardships and establishment ridicule to get things done. With Trump, the half-committed need not apply.

Assault on America, Day 100: Obama’s ‘Circular firing squad’ comparison taints 2020 Democrats

Primary campaigns are always contentious, especially in times of flux. Democrats aren’t going through anything now that Republicans didn’t experience just a few years ago. If Obama -- or anyone else -- thinks next year should turn into an intra-party love fest… he’s in for a rude awakening.

Assault on America, Day 99: Does anyone think Oprah or LeBron deserve slavery reparations?

It isn’t often we foresee the negative consequences of a government policy as clearly as we do with slavery reparations. The individuals who suffered under the “peculiar institution” -- and those who inflicted the pain -- are long since beyond reach. No “compensation” today would make anyone whole.

Assault on America, Day 98: Generic Democrats and Pelosi’s minions can’t stop Trump train

Pundits’ analysis and poll results shed little useful light on the 2020 presidential race over a year and a half before America chooses its next president. Donald Trump will be there, paired against a Democrat with his or her own apple cart full of problems. Nothing is “generic” in politics today.

Face it: Biden and Bernie are too old to be president

Byron York, Washington Examiner

They are too old to occupy the nation's highest office, not because they are out of touch or because their records are out of line with today's sensibilities, but because they are just too old. For those who respond, "Well, what about Trump?" remember: If the president serves two terms, he will leave the White House at 78, the oldest ever in office. But that is the age Biden would begin his presidency. And Sanders is a year older. Will Democrats will realize that and will nominate a candidate who draws a clear generational contrast with President Trump?

Assault on America, Day 97: Beto’s talent for B.S. suggests he’ll thrive in 2020 Dem primaries

Politicians bend facts to bolster claims of knowing more than competitors and opponents, hence providing a basis for choosing them over the others. Beto O’Rourke’s proving especially adept at spinning tall tales, which indicates he should do very well in next year’s Democrat primaries.

Assault on America, Day 96: Which side of the border crisis are Democrats and the media on?

We can’t depend on the media to report on the true situation at the border and the impossible negotiating position Congress forced on President Trump. Closing the border is the last and most drastic step to finally move Trump’s opponents off their rocks. Will they ever do it?

Assault on America, Day 93: Will Trump wrestle healthcare momentum away from Dems in 2020?

By urging the senate to revisit the possibility of repealing and replacing Obamacare, President Trump made a political move to assure the public he hasn’t forgotten about the issue ahead of next year’s election. Ruling class Republicans and Democrats take note -- Trump means what he says.

Socialized Medicine: Saving Money By Killing Grandma

The Economic Report of the President has several interesting sections on the effects of socialist policies and one of the most interesting is its examination of socialist healthcare plans, such as the Socialist Democrats’ “Medicare for All” (M4A) legislation, which would achieve its purported savings by cutting off life extending healthcare to older Americans.

Assault on America, Day 92: Why Conservatives cower in shadows at today’s liberal colleges

One can only hope free speech conditions improve for young conservatives on college campuses, and President Trump will do everything in his power to make sure of it. In America, no one should fear for their reputation or safety simply by identifying themselves. What is this, North Korea?

Bernie Brings In $18.2 Million Driving Democrats Further Left

Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders is leading the Democrat presidential field in fundraising and grassroots organizing and pushing the Democrats further Left. Having booked $18.2 million in the first quarter of 2019, Sanders is almost guaranteed to take his Socialist campaign to every Democrat primary and debate.

Assault on America, Day 91: Joe Biden just the latest creep calling the Democrat Party home

Chances are Joe Biden’s inappropriate conduct won’t derail his chances in the Democrat primaries, but there’s no doubt he’d emerge as damaged goods heading into the 2020 general election. A #MeToo driven party like the Democrats would be better served by staying (far) away.

Trump To Lead Fight Against Socialism

In conversation with White House staff it has been made clear that the President’s remarks at CPAC about socialism were not just an example of preaching to the choir and that the administration considers the Democrats’ move to the Far Left to be a serious challenge that was observed coming a long way off and would be confronted at every opportunity.

A History Lesson For Jeb Bush

As we see it, Jeb Bush’s claim that he wants a primary to spark “a conversation about what it is to be a conservative…” is nothing more than a cover story to justify a scorched earth primary campaign against Donald Trump that would only advantage the Democrats and jeopardize all the conservative successes of Trump’s first term.

Students Love The “Green New Deal” Until They Hear What’s In It

The problem for Democrats is now obvious: Having created their army of brainwashed little climate change monsters, the have to keep moving Left to satisfy their appetite for bigger government, more regulations and more laws and more limits on what we can do, more restrictions on what we can think and say and become, and the “Green New Deal” is just the start.

Beto Launches Apology Tour, Beats Out Bernie In First Day Haul

Like Obama, O’Rourke is an empty vessel who sees himself as a man of destiny, and like Obama he has turned apologizing into an artform, indeed his readiness to apologize for anything and everything was our primary takeaway from his first few days on the campaign trail. Given that, Beto is shaping-up to be the perfect white guilt candidate for a Democrat Party who’s only organizing principle is racial and social animus.
