Joe Biden

Assault on America, Day 117: Joe (race) Biden (race), Democrat (race) for (race) President!

A thorough perusal of the Democrat presidential candidate menu reveals a collection of entrees that will either make Americans ill or put them to sleep. Joe Biden may be the special du jour but beneath his provocative ingredient description lies a man who doesn’t have a clue why he’s even running.

The Democrats’ Mean Girls Problem

Few voters outside college campuses and the liberal Twitterverse are attracted to angry white feminists, sneering liberal arrogance, smug elite condescension, Hillary Clinton-style flip-floppers and scary socialist commissars – which pretty well sums-up the females in the Democratic field.

Assault on America, Day 114: Pocahontas Warren’s bizarre student loan payoff ploy will flop

Elizabeth Warren is buried in the lower echelon of 2020 Democrat presidential candidates, which should result in a host of crazy proposals intended to gain traction with the party base. Be it with paying off everyone’s student loans or nationalizing marijuana, “Pocahontas” is flat out of her mind.

Lunch Bucket Joe And The Mafia Hit Man

As Joe Biden announces for president it is worth recalling he has a long, friendly, and somewhat dark history with the Teamsters, or, more accurately, a mafia hitman, the late Frank Sheeran, who also happened to be the president of Teamsters local 326 in Delaware and helped make Biden a U.S. senator.

Assault on America, Day 113: Rush Limbaugh, Trump and the non-greatness of Tiger Woods

Real heroes are parents who toil in relative anonymity, known only to those in their immediate circles. Or military men and women who risk their lives for us. Or border patrol agents and policemen who do their jobs out of service and love. Does Tiger Woods fit in the same “greatness” category? You decide.

Assault on America, Day 112: What kind of team bans ‘God Bless America’ due to 1930s satire?

It’s sad that few probably noticed the New York Yankees’ removal of Kate Smith’s classic “God Bless America” from the seventh inning stretch. It’s even worse the team felt a need to do it based on events from a different time and mindset. Such is the way of the politically correct.

Assault on America, Day 111: Why America will never fall for ‘President Pete’ or Oprah’s guru

While it’s true any natural born American citizen over the age of 35 (and having lived in the U.S. for 14 years) is eligible to be president, it takes a lot more than a few interesting personal chits to realize the dream. Pete Buttigieg and Marianne Williamson are not typical Democrats -- and their candidacies are a punchline.

Assault on America, Day 110: Nauseated GOPers sickened by Mitt Romney’s bashing of Trump

Thankfully no one pays any attention to what Mitt Romney thinks these days. Perhaps he should realize it and cease taking cheap shots at a president who is keeping the party’s promises and faces what is sure to be a serious leftist socialist Democrat challenger next year. Can’t Mitt just shut up?

Assault on America, Day 106: Easter, American politics and the hope of resurrection & recovery

Easter reminds us of the power of redemption and second comings, particularly relevant this year with the tragic near-destruction of the historic Notre Dame Cathedral. American politics could see some surprising comebacks of its own next year, in Alabama and in nationwide House races. Stay tuned.

Assault on America, Day 105: GOP establishment remains Trump’s most visible 2020 opponent

Instead of joining President Trump in his relentless drive to steer American government back towards its constitutional limits, the Republican establishment is taking the opposite approach. It just goes to show, it’ll take much longer than four years to change the rotten culture in Washington.

Assault on America, Day 104: Both R’s and D’s can’t get their arms around the media’s lies

Democrats and Republicans will never view the media the same way, though at times both parties have beefs with how reporters handle issues. All politicians wish the media would pass along facts without embellishment, but fiscally speaking, it’s an ugly picture any way you look at it.

Assault on America, Day 103: Shortage of DC true believers threatens Trump’s MAGA mission

It could be said Washington DC’s biggest problem is its shortage of true believers, accountable people who devote themselves to the political leadership’s mission and willingly endure hardships and establishment ridicule to get things done. With Trump, the half-committed need not apply.

Assault on America, Day 100: Obama’s ‘Circular firing squad’ comparison taints 2020 Democrats

Primary campaigns are always contentious, especially in times of flux. Democrats aren’t going through anything now that Republicans didn’t experience just a few years ago. If Obama -- or anyone else -- thinks next year should turn into an intra-party love fest… he’s in for a rude awakening.

Assault on America, Day 99: Does anyone think Oprah or LeBron deserve slavery reparations?

It isn’t often we foresee the negative consequences of a government policy as clearly as we do with slavery reparations. The individuals who suffered under the “peculiar institution” -- and those who inflicted the pain -- are long since beyond reach. No “compensation” today would make anyone whole.

Joe Biden Needs A Hug

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Biden has got to be wondering how his decades-long free pass (a guy familiar with Delaware politics told me “There’s not a female fanny in the state that doesn’t have Joe’s paw-print on it.”) morphed into a campaign death warrant overnight. But that’s the nature of social justice warriorism – it’s a weapon designed to take out enemies by making it impossible to stay in accord with the rules because the rules keep changing and you don’t find out until you get dragged into the liberal kangaroo court and condemned. Welcome to the world you helped create with Anita Hill, Joe. It couldn’t happen to a fake-nicer guy.

One foolish remark and a presidential candidate is toast

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Joe Biden's hugs and massages diverted the attention of the ever-dozing media to the really chilling things he said in a speech the other day at the Russian Tea Room in Manhattan. He was trying to offer a full grovel to the radical feminists for his close questioning of Anita Hill at the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings in the previous century. He’s apparently willing to sacrifice America’s crown jewels to make the benighted ladies feel better. The trouble with America is the white man, good old Joe said. The political culture of centuries of dreadful white men in charge has encouraged violence against women, and Joe knows why.

Assault on America, Day 98: Generic Democrats and Pelosi’s minions can’t stop Trump train

Pundits’ analysis and poll results shed little useful light on the 2020 presidential race over a year and a half before America chooses its next president. Donald Trump will be there, paired against a Democrat with his or her own apple cart full of problems. Nothing is “generic” in politics today.

Face it: Biden and Bernie are too old to be president

Byron York, Washington Examiner

They are too old to occupy the nation's highest office, not because they are out of touch or because their records are out of line with today's sensibilities, but because they are just too old. For those who respond, "Well, what about Trump?" remember: If the president serves two terms, he will leave the White House at 78, the oldest ever in office. But that is the age Biden would begin his presidency. And Sanders is a year older. Will Democrats will realize that and will nominate a candidate who draws a clear generational contrast with President Trump?

Assault on America, Day 97: Beto’s talent for B.S. suggests he’ll thrive in 2020 Dem primaries

Politicians bend facts to bolster claims of knowing more than competitors and opponents, hence providing a basis for choosing them over the others. Beto O’Rourke’s proving especially adept at spinning tall tales, which indicates he should do very well in next year’s Democrat primaries.

Social Justice for Creepy Joe

Scott McKay, The American Spectator

Joe Biden isn’t kind, and he’s not compassionate. He’s a garden-variety attention-whore hack politician with personal habits tending toward depravity, and if he’s gobbled up by the left-wing mob before he can touch off yet another failed presidential run, it is of no particular abomination to the right side of the political fence. Biden made his bed, and made it again and again. Let him lie in it. When someone worth defending against the #MeToo mob is accused, let that be a time to push back against #MeToo excesses. Not this. This is Social Justice in its true form.
