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.

What Do You Call A One-Legged Stool?

Principles matter in elections, and with all four legs of the 2016 big table coalition working full throttle on his behalf Donald Trump is a shoo-in for reelection, but a stool or table supported only by the one leg of Donald Trump’s outsized personality is likely to crash on Election Day.

Assault on America, Day 205: What part of ‘America First’ do the media and Dems not get?

Despite what the media chooses to report, President Trump’s trade policies are quite simple and work like a charm. With a singular focus on backing American industry while negotiating with foreign governments, the notion of “America First” is making great popular strides with the people.

Trump and Pelosi Team up for Bigger Government, Deeper Debt

Terence P. Jeffrey, CNS News

Bipartisanship less often involves members of both major parties coming together to serve some great national interest and more often involves them coming together to serve their personal political interests as members of Washington's elected class. The Trump-Pelosi debt-and-spending deal is a short-term political win for the Washington establishment of both parties and a long-term loss for the American people. Rather than serve a great national interest, it attacks a great national interest: the solvency and future prosperity of this nation. It will not help Make America Great Again. It will make America bankrupt sooner.

Conservatives Oppose Trillion Dollar Spending Boondoggle

The Trump administration projected in March that this year’s deficit will hit $1.1 trillion, up from last year’s deficit of $779 billion – a figure comparable to the Obama-era deficit. After months of urging congressional and administration negotiators to prioritize reductions in spending, the Conservative Action Project has come out in opposition to this irresponsible bipartisan budget deal.

Assault on America, Day 204: Circus sideshow 2020 Dems amp up absurdity as debate looms

Running for president is a tough business and no one says it’s fair for all the participants. Drawing early attention and support is essential to mounting a viable campaign, which means Democrats will say some crazy stuff in the lead up to next week’s debates…and afterwards, too.

End immigration to mend it

Cal Thomas, Washington Times

President Trump has the power to shut off the flow of immigration until those who have entered the country illegally can be accounted for, those without proper documentation can be deported and the ones here legally become U.S. citizens. The president has the authority under 8 USC1182. If Congress continues to fail in its responsibility to protect our borders — Republicans because they and their U.S. Chamber of Commerce supporters want cheap labor and Democrats because they see potential votes — then President Trump should follow the example of two of his predecessors and the law to shut off the human tidal wave until we can deal with those already here.

Trump Sucked Into McConnell Spending Betrayal

The voters who want fiscal responsibility who powered the Tea Party Wave and the Trump Movement haven’t gone away. While they may grudgingly support President Trump in 2020 against a Far-Left progressive Democrat, congressional Republicans who think they can spend their way to reelection will face the wrath of those voters.

Assault on America, Day 203: How ‘Trumpian’ values replaced the feeble and outdated old GOP

It’s clear that many in both parties are having a difficult time defining President Trump and what his administration represents. Though the federal fiscal situation leaves much to be desired, Trump’s emphasis on people-centered government is a big improvement from the “old” GOP.

Progressives Are Convinced That Trump Is Toast

John Fund, National Review

It’s a common mistake on both the right and the left to assume that minority voters will a) always vote in large numbers and b) will vote automatically for Democrats. Hillary Clinton lost in 2016 in part because black turnout fell below what Barack Obama was able to generate. Netroots Nation convinced me that progressive activists are self-confident, optimistic about the chances for a progressive triumph, and assured that a Trump victory was a freakish “black swan” event. But they are also deaf to any suggestion that their PC excesses had anything to do with Trump’s being in the White House. That is apt to be the progressive blind spot going into the 2020 election.

Bernie Sanders Oppressor Of The Working Class

Senator Bernie Sanders may be the first Marxist to have a serious chance of being the Democratic Party’s nominee for President of the United States, but it appears his campaign operates more on the free market economic principles of Milton Friedman than the socialism of Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin.

Assault on America, Day 202: R’s and D’s fail to appreciate suicide missions result in death

Democrats have spent years trying to paint Trump as a racist -- and they’re still doing it -- but now they’re getting a little taste of their own medicine, and don’t like it. The best thing Trump could’ve done was get Nancy Pelosi and the Democrat leadership defending the “Squad.” How dumb and ignorant are they?

Trump vs. Omar, AOC and more – Why 2020 will be all about patriotism vs. racism

Newt Gingrich, Fox News

The left is desperate to smear Republicans and moderate Democrats as racists. Part of this desperation is in the left’s inability to debate the facts and their hope that strong smears can shame their opponents out of broaching the argument. Part of this desperation is in the left’s growing realization that President Trump and the Republicans are beginning to attract minority support in a serious way. If Republicans successfully answer the racist attack and then prove that the Democrats have become the party of radical proposals that would destroy America as we know it, then the Democrats could find themselves losing everywhere except on college campuses and in some radical neighborhoods.

Assault on America, Day 201: ‘Send her back!’ is the rallying cry of the politically suppressed

Among the multitude of problems the establishment media chooses to ignore is the border patrol’s inability to adequately control drug and human smuggling due to lack of manpower and resources. Rather than report facts, media members sensationalize “Send her Back!” chants. Who loses here?

Census Citizenship Fight Shows Trump Team’s Greatest Weakness

President Trump has an instinctive feel for the inflection points in today’s political and cultural battles, but personnel is policy, and Attorney General Barr is only one man; he needs a cadre of victory-minded conservative lawyers to handle the day-to-day legal work upon which victory or defeat of the Trump agenda hinges.

Assault on America, Day 198: Anniversary of Apollo 11 tests today’s wimpy liberal mindset

The fiftieth anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing represents both a testament to human ingenuity and a challenge to resurrect the spirit that allowed us to reach for the stars. In wasn’t a partisan achievement, it was an American one. Unfortunately, those days are long gone…will they ever return?

Calling 'the squad' to account

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

For those of us who are former political organizers, what the president was doing was clear: Provoking the Democrats into again embracing and defending women whom swing voters find toxic due to their agenda and attitudes. And they’re doing just that. Trump's approval rating among Republicans is now at 93 percent and the GOP’s approval rating among Americans is at 51 percent. The good news is the American people will have the final word on all of this next year. And one of the Democratic presidential candidates had better quickly emerge as a genuine party leader with the power and influence to shift the direction of their party, which right now according to my GPS, is headed for the cliff.

The MSM And Four Anti-American Congresswomen

Being an “American” requires more than simply being born here or otherwise qualifying for United States citizenship – it requires allegiance to a certain and quite definite set of principles set forth in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Representative Omar and her posse all took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, but we see no evidence that they and their media defenders actually hold any allegiance to its principles.

Assault on America, Day 197: Will Joe Biden’s fib obsession lead to calls for Hillary to run?

Whether or not Hillary Clinton eventually decides to enter the 2020 presidential race, Joe Biden’s fate depends on how long he maintains the appearance of viability. Once Democrat voters see through the former Obama VP’s ruse the end will come quickly. Will Hillary then pick up the pieces?

The four noisy horseladies of the Apocalypse

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Congresspersons do decide “how our government is to be run,” and congressional voices range from dumb to silly to asinine. The four horseladies are all citizens, nevertheless, and all but one of them were born in the U.S.A. They all sound like ingrates, and new citizens of our present day, unlike immigrants in the days of yore, do not always wear their love of country as a badge of gratitude. Mr. Trump let slip an opportunity to let these silly women hang themselves with their ingratitude. But there will be more opportunities between now and November 2020 to keep the president’s Twitter account busy. Nancy Pelosi’s long night of dread is far from over.
