Assault on America, Day 496: George W. Bush shouldn’t be lecturing Trump on human behavior

The only reason why some liberals praised George W. Bush last week was to score a backhanded slap at President Trump. Trump’s political enemies aren’t always easily identified but they seem to act in predictable ways. Like with different colored bears in the wild, they need to be separated accordingly.

Conservative Leaders To GOP: No State and Local Government Bailouts in COVID-19 Relief Legislation

As Congress contemplates a future relief package, the conservative leaders of the Conservative Action Project, led by Chairman Alfred S. Regnery, urge Congress to reject state and local government cash bailouts in favor of policies which give states the flexibility to address the COVID-19 crisis according to the needs of their state – including providing relief from onerous regulations, unfunded federal mandates, and policies which stifle economic growth.

Assault on America, Day 495: Time to hit brakes on federal spending and worry about tomorrow

With the health threat from the coronavirus winding down in the individual states, it’s time to carefully consider the next steps and not sustain the out-of-control federal spending of the past three months. A fiscal emergency can be just as urgent as a disease pandemic, but moves made now will heavily impact the future.

Democrats’ Desperation about Tara Reade Is Growing. So Is Their Hypocrisy.

David Harsanyi, National Review

The problem isn’t that Biden is being treated unjustly, or that he should be treated unjustly; it’s that he is being treated justly by the same people who treat others unjustly. Democrats have yet to explain why Biden is afforded every benefit of the doubt but not Kavanaugh, and not millions of college students. Public figures have every right to demand fair hearings and due process. Voters have every right to judge the credibility of both accuser and accused. Many women are victims. You can’t keep demanding that our political system adjudicate similar incidents under two completely different set of rules. It’s untenable.

Has Trump Already Won Reelection?

Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

Looking at the polls in early May Democrats might feel optimistic about their chances of beating Trump. But polls do not tell us everything that can be known about politics. The betting odds, which are determined by people actually wagering their own money on the election, show Trump a solid favorite to win reelection. Maybe those bettors know something the pundits don’t know, but how many people would be willing to bet on Biden’s “electability”? If the Vegas odds are right, and Trump is headed toward a decisive victory in November, we may look back in six months and realize that “Sleepy Joe” never had a chance.

Assault on America, Day 492: ‘Tomorrow’ is just about all that’s left for doddering Joe Biden

It boggles the mind to consider Joe Biden is destined to be the Democrats’ 2020 nominee, as he struggles to string together coherent sentences and doesn’t appear to be in control of his own faculties. Joe’s search for the perfect running mate match must be taxing what’s left of his limited cognitive capacity. Down the road awaits Donald Trump. Daunting.

More Silence of the Bushes, Please

Scott McKay, The American Spectator

If anybody should shut up about partisan politics it’s the Bushes, whose utter failure to understand how they can and will be used to destroy a presidency caused both to leave office in defeat, 41 through losing reelection, and 43 through suffering microscopic approval ratings thanks to the Democrats’ use of “Bush Lied, People Died” anti-Iraq War propaganda that was never answered. Trump’s style might have its own blemishes, but one thing he will consistently do is defend himself from all comers. That’s a form of Republican politics that was long overdue, even if it sows discord the legacy media doesn’t like.

Trump trolling for fun and profit

Byron York, Washington Examiner

For some in the media and politics, Trump derangement is more than a syndrome. It is a business — show business. It is a way to expand one's audience and gain influence. That's not to say it is insincere — many in the media and politics really do detest the president — but there is a flamboyance to it that keeps the audience entertained. On the politics side, trolling the president can raise the profile of even the most marginal group. Trump trolling can lead to what (#NeverTrumper) Liz Mair experienced — more visibility, more influence, and more money. And in the media and politics business, that's good for the bottom line.

ODNI Grenell Please Release The Schiff Transcripts NOW!

Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell on Monday informed House intelligence committee chairman Adam Schiff that some 6,000 pages of until-now secret testimony from the House investigation of President Trump are ready for release.We urge Mr. Grenell to release the transcripts at the earliest moment propriety allows – especially if he doesn’t hear back expeditiously from Schiff. You can communicate directly with ODNI Grenell via Twitter by tweeting him @RichardGrenell

Assault on America, Day 491: Now more than ever, Trump should tout economy for reelection

Everyone knows the economy will be the foremost issue in this year’s election, and most people recognize President Trump is the best leader to handle the near-impossible task of getting things back to normal. In making the argument, Trump should cite both his record and his experience, assets no opponent could match.

Assault on America, Day 490: Forrest Gump sets the line between science and common sense

These days it’s hard to tell where “science” stops and good judgment begins, but the coronavirus conundrum and China’s role in the pandemic will help reveal the dividing line. Democrat politicians can only hide behind graphs, charts and models for so long -- sooner or later, they’ll have to start making sense.

Democrats' moral compass broken beyond repair

Robert Knight, Washington Times

Mr. Comey, who also leaked a memo about his confidential conversation with President Trump that wound up in The New York Times, was hired by the College of William & Mary to teach a course in “ethical leadership.” The average American looks at all this and can’t help asking if any of these leftist miscreants will ever face justice or at least not be rewarded. We have never seen anything like the three-and-a-half year war engaged by America’s domestic enemies against an elected president. Some might call it treason. It sure isn’t “loyal opposition.” Our only hope is that the truth will get out despite the media’s best efforts to quash it.

Assault on America, Day 489: Time to fuel up and let Trump be Trump across America again

Word that President Trump plans to get on the road again is welcome news to conservatives and Republicans weary of seeing him confined to the White House and unable to appeal directly to voters instead of being bludgeoned by Democrats and the media without let-up. Here’s to well-worn luggage, Mr. Trump.

Assault on America, Day 488: COVID-19 will come back in the fall. Tell us what we don’t know

The experts think they’re being helpful by predicting a new round of coronavirus infections after the summer season, but it’s not telling us anything we don’t already know. Debate will continue as to the wisdom of shutting down the economy in the first place. For most of us, it’s time to relearn what it was like to enjoy basic liberties.

As in 1944, Democratic Running Mate Selection Seems Pivotal

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

As in 1944, the United State is facing an ongoing existential crisis, as the coronavirus threatens to kill thousands more Americans and do trillions of dollars more damage to the economy. In such an ordeal, the Democrats believe Joe Biden can win the November election. As with FDR in 1944, the 77-year-old Biden seems frail at times. He also seems frequently confused. There is concern in some corners that if elected, he might not be able to fulfill his duties. That unspoken fear has turned the selection of a Democratic running mate into a drama not seen in decades. This year, as in 1944, the VP job seems something more than a bucket of warm spit.

Assault on America, Day 485: What happened to #BelieveSurvivors? The Tara Reade travesty

Biden accuser Tara Reade isn’t likely to go away, but the Democrat establishment wouldn’t dream of allowing her a full hearing in the court of public opinion. All the party’s pontificating over “believing survivors” during the Kavanaugh sideshow goes out the window when one of their own is threatened. Grampa Joe will be on the ballot in November.

True the Vote And Bopp Law Firm Lead Opposition To Mail-in Elections

True the Vote's Catheryn Englebrecht and lead counsel Jim Bopp of the Bopp Law Firm, PC won a stunning victory for ballot security and the rule of law in their battle against Democrat attempts to hijack the New Mexico election with an "all mail" voting scheme. Now they are engaged in a similar effort in Nevada where Democrats are bullying squishy Republicans into going along with a similar scheme.

Assault on America, Day 484: Media hypocrites overreact to wrong kind of government shutdown

As the coronavirus episode has revealed, Democrats and their media enablers don’t act the least bit bothered by keeping America’s business doors closed as long as it plays to their political prospects. It’s a far cry from their concerns for federal employees during government shutdowns. How do they explain the distinction?

Good News – Bad News On Second Amendment Rights

The unalienable rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment have never been exercised more vigorously than they have during the Wuhan virus epidemic when record numbers of firearms have been sold. But at the same time, those rights have rarely been more vigorously attacked by anti-gun Democrats.

Assault on America, Day 483: Dopey Joe’s make- believe presser not a dream -- it’s a nightmare

If Joe Biden truly were president it’s safe to say a lot of people would take a realistic look at his leadership qualities and find them lacking. It’s one thing to isolate yourself in a coronavirus-proof bunker; it’s quite another to face the hostile media every day and still come out looking like a winner. That’s President Trump.
