Donald Trump

Joe Biden's rumble in the jungle of empty rhetoric

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Biden will always pivot to his meaningless crusade to unify the nation by paying tribute to peace and Delaware decorum, and in the next breath decry Donald Trump, who “embraces dictators like Putin and Kim Jong-un.” He can’t do it by denigrating the Trump economy with silly and semi-cute remarks like “President Trump inherited an economy from the Obama-Biden administration that was given to him, just like he inherited everything else in his life.” Good ol’ Joe is expected to bring home the Midwestern white, male, blue-collar folk who fled to the Republicans four years ago. But white, male, blue-collared folk may not be as dumb now as good ol’ Joe thinks.

Personnel Is Policy: Conservative Star Ken Cuccinelli To Join Trump Team

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Rumor has it that Ken Cuccinelli will “coordinate the administration’s immigration policies.” Whether that will be from the White House or from the Department of Homeland Security has yet to be revealed. But wherever Ken Cuccinelli’s office is located physically, Ken will be a vital addition to the Trump team.

Assault on America, Day 140: College Board steps in it with adversity score algorithm scheme

“Adversity scores” will only accelerate the decline of our culture. Bad things happen when we intentionally downgrade the brightest, smartest and most intelligent to cater to those who are not as bright, not as smart, and who didn’t study and work as hard. Don’t accept the insult sitting down.

China and how we got it wrong

Newt Gingrich, Fox News

For decades, our diplomatic, economic, and security strategies related to China have been based on a set of key myths. We (myself included) sold ourselves an optimistic, American-centric, fantasy version of China that has never existed – and will likely never exist. The real China is much more formidable and dangerous than we have wanted to believe. China has always had its own agenda. It wants to reclaim its position as the Middle Kingdom – the center of world affairs. With its 5,000-year history, it is also deeply Chinese. It has no interest in becoming westernized. China is also deeply committed to its communist system.

Biden Was Projecting When He Called Trump 'Divider-in-Chief'

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Biden represents a political party that could not accept the 2016 election of Donald Trump on any level, before or after his victory. Their supporters taking to the streets almost immediately, they and their compliant media were talking about impeachment before Trump was even inaugurated. Where was Biden in that extraordinarily divisive behavior? Biden and his strategists are clever in presenting Biden as this uniter, disingenuous as it is. It might get him through the primary season relatively unscathed. But my guess is, in the immortal words of Obama's once-favorite minister, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, the "chickens will come home to roost."

Seoul a rebuke to U.S. Democrats' love of socialism on display in North Korea

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

The 2020 Democrats' “free stuff” ideology has proven time and time again to be a lie. “Free stuff” does not actually exist. It is merely a mirage to make people give up all their freedoms and other people’s money so that politicians can gather as much power as they can seize. Anyone in America who believes otherwise should come here to South Korea. See if you can find some “coyote” and pay him to smuggle you across the border into North Korea where the ideology of “free stuff” reigns supreme. You should go there and live out your socialist dream. And leave South Korea and the American dream alone.

USA Wins A Battle In The Soft War With China

You may have to go to the business or tech pages to find out about it, but the news that Google has apparently withdrawn from its cooperation with Huawei is a huge win for the national security of the United States and other nations that are unwilling to place themselves under the yoke of Red China’s dystopian social credit system for ordering human affairs.

Assault on America, Day 139: Spineless wimp Mitt Romney leads DC swamp class with gusto

No one ever said American politics was full of principled leaders, and Mitt Romney is perhaps the worst jelly-spine wimp in Congress today. Romney’s turning out to be every bit as frustrating as conservatives thought he’d be -- just think what would’ve happened if he’d won in 2012.

Conservatives Put On The Brass Knuckles

“What I want to do with the Article III Project is take off the gloves, put on the brass knuckles and fight back,” Mike Davis, an Iowa native who was the chief nominations counsel for Senator Charles E. Grassley, told Carl Hulse of the New York Times.

Assault on America, Day 138: Trump trade policy won’t let China dictate how we shop, live or eat

Donald Trump meant what he said when he chose “Make America Great Again” as his campaign mantra four years ago. Decade upon decade of feckless trade policy had a big hand in causing the U.S. to slip in competitiveness around the globe. With Trump in charge, we’re seeing a drastic change for the better.

Trump has made America less racist

Ross Clark, The Spectator

It might be added that the election of Barack Obama also caught liberal opinion unawares. That event, it might be recalled, was supposed to be the breakthrough which led to a kinder, gentler America. Instead it seemed to be followed by a more fractious period in race relations, culminating in race riots in Ferguson, Mo., in 2014. Maybe social science has got it the wrong way round: it was the sight of a mixed race man in the White House who brought out in the inner racist in Americans who are inclined towards those feelings, while the reassuring sight of white man back in the Oval Office has calmed them down.

The GOP Base Is Done Tolerating RINO Collaboration With The Democrats

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Never Trump is just another flavor of narcissism, and Burr’s selfishness will shaft the rest of his Senate colleagues most of all in 2020. He doesn’t care – and he expects the Senate collegiality he is ignoring as he hurts his team will protect him from the blistering criticism he deserves from other Republicans. Pity poor Thom Tillis, North Carolina’s other senator. Most of us already suspect he’s squishy. Tillis has to run in 2020 and now Burr’s brought this Schiff-storm down on him. Burr’s behavior was bad enough that Tillis offered tweets in protest, which is a big deal among senators. When Tillis loses, he can thank his good buddy Burr the Blue Falcon.

Assault on America, Day 135: Which 2020 Democrats will join Alyssa Milano’s sex strike?

Search efforts didn’t reveal whether any of the 2020 Democrat presidential hopefuls signed on to Alyssa Milano’s call for a nationwide “sex strike” -- but they all side with the abortion-on-demand cause behind it. Just when you thought American politics couldn’t get any screwier…what will it be next week?

Viguerie and Shirley: Trump’s next battle: McConnell and the GOP Swamp

Richard Viguerie and Craig Shirley, Fox News

The battle between Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump and is only going to intensify. When Donald Trump surprised the world by winning the 2016 election, the establishment was not going to let go of power without a fight. What’s worse is that they failed to learn anything from the sweeping loss of the House of Representatives in 2018.  McConnell and his weak-kneed colleagues are again failing to understand the mood of the American people. They want a fighter for the policies he promised to deliver. Those not wearing their MAGA hats and stand in the way of those promises are likely to come out on the wrong side of this fight.

Joe Biden and restoring the old (pre-Trump) order

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Biden stands ahead of the field. Democrats know how old he is, they know he has lost in the past, and they still like him. There's a truism that elections are always about the future, not the past. That's often the case. But what if it isn't this time? A lot of political truisms did not hold up in the 2016 election, which was won by a man with another promise of restoration, to "Make America Great Again." Now, many Democrats seem happy to support a candidate who pledges to take them back a few years. Again, that could change, but for the moment, it shows how many Democrats yearn to return to a time before Trump.

The Truth About Tariffs And Red China

Donald Trump is the first President to recognize we are in a war with the Red Chinese, and the battlefield he has chosen is one that is favorable to us. We believe conservatives should support the President’s tariffs because they are among the cheapest and most effective weapons we have to win the war Red China has declared on us.

Assault on America, Day 134: As Bernie avoids touting socialism, 2020 Dems pick up the slack

It’s understandable how Democrat presidential candidates hope to set themselves apart from the others by dissing on President Trump, his record and his policies. But when push comes to shove they’d better provide facts to back up their claims. Bernie Sanders and cohorts aren’t making the grade.

China’s Brilliant, Insidious Strategy

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

China understands the often blame-itself-first Western mind (and there is such a thing) far better than Westerners themselves do. It assumes that it will not really suffer blanket criticism for its inhuman treatment of religious minorities and dissidents, or its ruthlessness in Africa. Instead, it figures that many will side with it as victims of a Western racism that supposedly prevents Western liberals from appreciating genuine Asian efforts to join the family of nations. China is confident that it now knows the U.S. only too well, and it is mastering the political, economic, cultural, and military methods of nullifying American advantages. And it may be right.

How President Trump can break up the Democrats' fragile coalition

John Feehery, The Hill

For Republicans and President Trump, there are three things they can do to exploit divisions within the fragile Democratic coalition. First, condemn consistently and forcefully the white supremacists among them. The American dream is a universal value, and it is not just opened to the palest among us. Second, defend traditional values as the greatest gateway to economic security. The Democrats are taking us to a brave new world, untried, untested, untethered to reality. Normal Americans don’t buy it. Third, listen to the concerns of black, Hispanic and Asian Americans, value their input and ask for their votes. Don’t make the same mistakes of the progressive elite.

Which One Of The Spygate Rats Will Flip First?

Fired FBI Director James Comey, former CIA Director John Brennan, former FBI General Counsel James Baker and several others are already in the crosshairs. Given U.S. attorney John Durham’s reputation for uncovering and prosecuting FBI corruption in the Bolger case, which one of the Spygate rats is going to flip first?
