Assault on America, Day 230: Dem losers make great candidates for intra-party advancement

As long as there are elections there will be losers and a good share of them will be Democrats. Such candidates should take heart; their party not only sees them as unlucky and unfortunate, it also likely considers them good contenders for even higher offices. Stacy Abrams for VP? What a joke.

Assault on America, Day 229: Bar-B-Q, political choices and Dems -- a snapshot of life in 2019

Joaquin Castro likely did Texas based Bill Miller Bar-B-Q a favor (in the business sense) by publishing the name of its owner as a Trump backer. Texas conservatives’ response has been overwhelming -- but what does it say about our culture and society when it’s okay to potentially ruin someone’s existence over a political view? Think about it.

Assault on America, Day 226: If 2020 Democrat candidates were in training, they’d all be cut

With Joe Biden looking increasingly tired, careworn and unable to get his thoughts straight, Democrats have a heck of a problem. Like a football team with no one backing up an aging and failing quarterback, the party is desperately searching for another option -- and time is running out.

Assault on America, Day 225: Cultural retreat spells death for conservatives hoping to MAGA

Conservatives won’t realize cultural success until there’s a determined effort among those with a say to engage with liberals on their own turf and refuse to bow to political correctness wherever it’s found. Retreating before the battle is joined is the last thing we should do if we’re truly to Make America Great Again.

Assault on America, Day 224: Does Biden really think being a minority equates to being poor?

Nearly as predictable as the tides, Joe Biden will keep making speeches and he’ll continue saying things that cause decent people to shake their heads. Democrats must decide whether they want a presidential nominee who seems to be slipping more and more as the days go on. What will they do?

Assault on America, Day 223: Americans buying guns is the rational response to mass shootings

Americans aren’t stupid; they see what’s happening in the country and can be trusted to take rational approaches to complex problems -- like purchasing a firearm for personal protection. The political class always jumps to conclusions, and often times they’re the wrong ones for the wrong reasons.

Laura Loomer Officially Running For Congress In Florida Congressional District 21

Laura Loomer launched her campaign with an endorsement from conservative rock star Rep. Paul Gosar (AZ-4). Although it is too early for a CHQ endorsement, we think seeing MAGA conservative firebrand Laura Loomer debate her Democrat opponent during the campaign and question Democrat witnesses from the dais as a Member of Congress would inspire conservatives across the country.

Assault on America, Day 222: Two years since Charlottesville and Dems haven’t learned a thing

It’d be great to say America’s learned a lesson in the two years since the deadly riot in central Virginia, but glancing around it certainly doesn’t look that way. Liberals are still attempting to pin blame for tragedies on the political leadership in the White House. And it ain’t working.

Why conservatives must engage in Hollywood

Sam Sorbo, Washington Times

Why does the size of government only seem to grow, with conservative victories merely coming in fits and starts? One major reason is that liberals dominate culture, which has a much more profound impact on people’s worldview than policy analysis. Culture, and entertainment specifically, taps into people’s emotions, reaching a deeper level of the brain than rational appeals that usually don’t penetrate the frontal cortex. If conservatives want to reverse the juggernaut of the leftist agenda, the long march through the institutions, they must commit to engaging in cultural spheres even more than they do in intellectual ones.

Assault on America, Day 219: Kamala Harris shows true meaning of political ‘flash in the pan’

It takes a lot for a politician to achieve electoral viability and sustain it through a grueling campaign -- and then maintain it once in office. Democrats like Kamala Harris can only get so far on surface characteristics alone, something several candidates are yet to discover in this year’s presidential race.

Assault on America, Day 218: ‘National White Male Lobotomy Day’ coming to your town

Democrats will do anything to win, and their suggestion of a special congressional look into “white nationalism” is as ridiculous as they come. In time someone will devise a reasonable way to stave off the next irrational attack. Until that time, maybe the politicians should just stay the heck away from DC.

Assault on America, Day 217: Why today’s pols shouldn’t try to compete for every possible vote

While it’s a good thing to say you’ll compete for every vote, closer analysis indicates it just isn’t possible. In today’s political climate there’s no such thing as the lowest common denominator; it’s best to take a position and defend it to the last and not worry about the naysayers. Just ask President Trump.

Assault on America, Day 216: American culture of death, not firearms, to blame for mass murders

Something’s definitely wrong in America when individuals set off on mass murder rampages. The challenge lies with identifying a true cause and devising solutions that are both politically palatable and will actually address the problems. Blaming guns or the president is the easy way out. Can’t we talk about the culture of death instead?

Assault on America, Day 215: Dems dump on Obama while Trump’s re-election prospects rise

It wouldn’t be a stretch to deem President Trump the “winner” of last week’s Democrat debates. The lifelong celebrity and social media master knows precisely which buttons to push to get his enemies attacking him -- and each other, too. It’s only August and already the Democrats are in deep trouble.

Assault on America, Day 212: Democrats’ ‘dark psychic forces’ will throw the 2020 election

When Trump talks about “rat infested” Baltimore and making streets safer, he’s drawing a lot of voters’ attention. And his Jamestown tribute was highly presidential, too. Democrats won’t get nearly as far talking about “dark psychic forces” and other wacko ideas, but they’ll sure give it a try.

Assault on America, Day 211: Democrat debate: Until further notice, it’s Biden’s race to lose

Will these two programs shake up the Democrat race? We’ll find out in the coming days and weeks, but here’s thinking everyone’s ready for a break from the non-stop negativity, blame game and finger pointing of the party candidates. In that sense, the real “winner” is all of us.

The death penalty is red tape threaded into a noose

Stephen Daisley, The Spectator

Instead of familiar arguments about racial and class bias, inadequate legal representation and outdatedness, Republican dissenters view the death penalty as another failed government program. Richard Viguerie, a founding father of the conservative movement, contends: ‘Conservatives have every reason to believe the death penalty system is no different from any politicized, costly, inefficient, bureaucratic, government-run operation, which we conservatives know are rife with injustice. But here the end result is the end of someone’s life. In other words, it’s a government system that kills people.’

Assault on America, Day 210: Democrat debate equals predictability and inadvertent hilarity

It’s often said these debates do little to help voters make up their minds, and it might be especially true in Democrats’ case. It’s hard to think of a time in history where one of the parties has offered such poor candidates for president as this year’s Democrats. The party’s “stars” are extreme and the no-names are boring. Sounds like a recipe for disaster, not a roadmap to victory.

Assault on America, Day 209: Advice ain’t always worth what you pay for it. Listening, Democrats?

It’s often said advice is worth what you pay for it, a truism the 2020 Democrat candidates shouldn’t necessarily take to heart. Occasionally a valuable tip arrives free of charge. Will the second round of Democrat debates show the party’s presidential hopefuls learned a lesson? Don’t bet on it.

Assault on America, Day 208: A horrible budget deal only a DC swamp creature could love

The budget deal is truly awful, but conservatives should take some solace in the fact Democrat 2020 candidates will soon be at it again with their next round of debates. Will they address the deficit? Will they talk about the national debt? Is there another solution other than confiscatory taxes? Inquiring minds want to know.
