Assault on America, Day 167: It’s official, Trump is running in 2020 -- he’s in it to win it

President Trump officially launches his 2020 campaign tonight. As they’ve done throughout his four-year political career, the media will feed off of the interest the event generates, then bash him relentlessly afterwards. Trump won’t care -- he and his tens of thousands of backers will have the time of their lives.

Joe Biden and the Democrats’ Racist Abortion Position

Paul Kengor, The American Spectator

For those who hoped and prayed that the scourge of black abortion would decline (with all abortions), well, too bad: the Democrats are doing their damnedest to ensure that when it comes to public funding of abortion, no child is left behind. Liberal Democrats tell us they love blacks and the poor. They are just oozing with compassion for them. So much so that they will strive to ensure that you — as a taxpayer, and regardless of your religious or conscience objections — are forced by the state to help ensure that every black or poor woman who wants to terminate her child will not be financially prohibited. Wow, what compassion. Pretty sick, folks. Pretty sick, Joe.

Assault on America, Day 166: With debts mounting, how much should Americans provide?

With Democrats like Bernie Sanders campaigning on the necessity to spend more to provide a higher standard of living for everyone, it’s about time Americans had a conversation about the difference between “needs” and “wants.” Don’t trust a big spending politician to explain the distinction.

Assault on America, Day 163: For Trump and the GOP in 2020, it ain’t just the economy, stupid

No one ethnic voting bloc will determine the outcome of next year’s election but taken as a whole, Republicans can’t afford to assume they’ll do better just because the economy is strong. Everyone wants a better life and it’s up to the political class to convince voters it will happen.

Biden Joining Dems in Left Field

Betsy McCaughey, The American Spectator

Democratic contenders are espousing policies few Americans support, and giving moderate and conservative members of their own party the cold shoulder. They’re also vowing to destroy their Republican opponent, President Trump. Eleven of the Democratic presidential contenders are calling for the House to impeach Trump, while House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she wants him in prison. That’s banana republic talk. Democrats eyeing the White House need to get real. By writing off moderate and conservative members of their own party, they’re boosting Trump’s chances of reelection. Then again, Trump’s reelection may be the gut punch that brings the Democratic Party back to its senses.

Cult Of Death Sweeps New England

We urge CHQ readers and friends to battle the growing state sanctioned cult of death that just swept through New England. In particular we urge you to stand against assisted suicide proposals like the one that just became law in Maine and radical “abortion to the moment of birth” proposals like the one that just became law in New Hampshire, as similar bills are now being brought before state legislatures across the country.

Assault on America, Day 162: Trump trails Dems in Texas and other key states. Time to panic?

Politics is politics and polls are polls. The 2020 election is shaping up to be one heck of a struggle, and reality suggests many citizens haven’t made up their minds on who they’ll choose a year and a half before Election Day. Opinion surveys are a snapshot it time; take them with a grain of salt.

Assault on America, Day 161: Hillary, Obama, GOP heads and the politics of cowardice & losing

Along with his many predictions of “winning” President Trump’s known for calling his opponents “losers” and gloating over their failures. Such talk may not go over well on a playground, but in the world of politics you can say anything you want as long as you back it up. Trump’s done it -- a lot.

Biden’s Abortion Flip-Flop Reveals His Weaknesses

John Fund, National Review

Despite all of the internal Democratic misgivings about Biden, he can still barrel through to the nomination in a highly divided field. Trump’s ability to win blue states was the key to his winning the White House in 2016. But Biden’s strength with blue-collar voters isn’t preordained if he runs an erratic campaign full of flip-flops, lapses, and odd behavior. “Voters have come to expect Trump breaks the norms of politics and they have baked that into their assumptions about him,” a former Democratic senator who served with Biden told me. “But Biden’s pitch is he’s more stable and dependable than Trump. But what if the contrast in the end just isn’t that dramatic?”

Assault on America, Day 160: Biden honeymoon about to be buried under avalanche of facts

Now that the real work’s about to start in the 2020 presidential race it’s clear Democrats will have their hands full trying to figure out how to treat Joe Biden. The media is quick to highlight all of Biden’s supposed advantages, but when his flaws start hitting the light of day, watch out.

The Old White Men Leading the Democratic Race

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

As long as Bernie holds onto the votes he has, he prevents any candidate of color, any woman, or any fresh new face from amassing enough strength in the polls to get within striking distance of Biden. Bernie is thus today a de facto ally of Biden. He holds too few votes to take the nomination from Joe, but sufficient votes to stay in the race through the early primaries and deny any other Democrat a clean shot at Biden. As of now, there are two lanes to the Democratic nomination—the centrist-moderate lane Biden occupies almost exclusively, and the left lane where Bernie leads but is being challenged by Elizabeth Warren.

Assault on America, Day 159: How damaged would things be today if Romney won in 2012?

Whether it’s Democrats or certain Republicans (like Mitt Romney) it’s clear Americans will be dissatisfied as long as the establishment mans the government’s levers of power. President Trump shows no let-up in his drive to drain the swamp -- but he’ll need many more liberty-loving helpers to make it a reality.

Biden Not Alone: All Dem Climate Policies Are Plagiarized

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Besides his obvious affinity for plagiarism, it should be no surprise that Joe Biden stole his ideas for dealing with climate change. He couldn't possibly have any of his own. He doesn't have anywhere near the background or, to be honest, the intelligence to comprehend the necessary physics and chemistry. What the Democratic candidates are doing is exploiting climate for political gain and actually hurting the environment in the process, not to mention the economy. Not only is their approach anti-science, but it is also a dumbing down of our culture, especially our all-too-gullible young people who already have had their brains drilled by a ridiculously biased educational system.

Assault on America, Day 156: Trump bashers’ conduct defies apples to oranges comparison

It’s extremely hard to compare today’s political predicament to those of the past because there’s never been a president quite like Donald Trump and Democrats of today are a breed apart from their predecessors. Impeachment will happen -- or it won’t -- and life will stay putrid and stagnant in the DC swamp.

Assault on America, Day 155: Thank God our fighting men had big guns on D-Day, 1944

Liberals aren’t interested in a “national conversation” on guns. They only want to confiscate them while scoffing at the argument that the Second Amendment guarantees your right to protect yourself. Blame the gun -- it’s the liberal thing to do. It makes liberals feel useful and the gullible and uninformed actually follow along. Nonsense.

Assault on America, Day 154: 2020 confirmation battle would make Brett Kavanaugh’s look tame

Few issues would engender more interest and energy than a Supreme Court vacancy during next year’s presidential campaign. Should one occur, the public battle would certainly make history. Mitch McConnell was correct to say he’d move forward with confirmation hearings… but would the nation survive?

Assault on America, Day 153: Since when does equality mean some are more equal than others?

Perhaps we’re fortunate prominent liberals like Taylor Swift keep highlighting the absurdity of their causes. The “Equality Act” is the most egregious recent example of a politically correct mindset gone bad. Those who truly stand up for “equality” will remember what the word actually means. Why is there no middle ground?

Assault on America, Day 152: What would happen if liberals boycotted every pro-life state?

Pro-life state legislatures should be commended for pushing the envelope on the human rights issue. As liberal challenges to abortion restriction laws mount, the Supreme Court will decide. Here’s thinking Hollywood actors’ and producers’ absurd boycotts won’t accomplish a thing.

Assault on America, Day 149: Distraught Dems out of options as impeachment dreams dwindle

Democrats’ dreams of impeachment aren’t helping to win anyone over. Robert Mueller’s pathetic impromptu press conference this week didn’t reveal anything new, either, and time’s running out for Trump’s enemies to make something stick. Sooner or later voters will pay attention… what will they see?

Assault on America, Day 148: Grandstanding Dems should personally embrace illegal aliens

The American elites are completely out-of-touch on most things but never more so than with illegal immigration. Those holed-up in ivory towers show little concern or compassion for folks who must live with the epidemic of issues aliens bring with them. Perhaps it’s time the snobs embraced the problem on a personal level. Would they learn?
