Joe Biden

Assault on America, Day 96: Which side of the border crisis are Democrats and the media on?

We can’t depend on the media to report on the true situation at the border and the impossible negotiating position Congress forced on President Trump. Closing the border is the last and most drastic step to finally move Trump’s opponents off their rocks. Will they ever do it?

Assault on America, Day 93: Will Trump wrestle healthcare momentum away from Dems in 2020?

By urging the senate to revisit the possibility of repealing and replacing Obamacare, President Trump made a political move to assure the public he hasn’t forgotten about the issue ahead of next year’s election. Ruling class Republicans and Democrats take note -- Trump means what he says.

When Joe Biden Is Suddenly Creepy

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Biden is leading in many polls, and that's a problem for the radicals who perceive that he's not leftist enough. He's not perceived to be as leftist as Sanders. He's not perceived to be as leftist as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. He may rate a 99 percent on the left, but it is looking for 103 percent. The No. 1 "journalism" objective in 2020 is beating President Trump. They are clearly seeking to remove the biggest obstacle to an American socialist revolution. Democrats who don't march in lockstep may be yesterday's news.

The return of a familiar hypocrisy among Democrats as they defend Biden

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

We have never seen him kissing male supporters on the mouth. We don’t see him sniffing like a dog on the street at the hair of another man. The issue is not his intention, it’s behavior that we all know is wrong and inappropriate. What we should be concerned about in this case and so many others is the fact that this went on for so long, allowing someone like Joe Biden to excuse it in his own mind as acceptable. Here’s a newsflash I thought unnecessary for the 21st century: It’s not what the perpetrator is thinking, it’s what he’s doing and what the women being targeted are experiencing.

Assault on America, Day 92: Why Conservatives cower in shadows at today’s liberal colleges

One can only hope free speech conditions improve for young conservatives on college campuses, and President Trump will do everything in his power to make sure of it. In America, no one should fear for their reputation or safety simply by identifying themselves. What is this, North Korea?

Why segregation is the only way to save the women

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Who could have guessed that so many grown women wouldn’t know how to deal with hair-do sniffers and nose-rubbers. Not all snowflakes live on a college campus. A way must be found to separate men and women. Women must not be forced to live under lascivious gazes and endure sweaty kisses and hard rubs. Women who once withered seduction with a fierce frown, now need help for their granddaughters. How to do it, and still get great-granddaughters, must be the decisive issue of the 2020 campaign.

Assault on America, Day 91: Joe Biden just the latest creep calling the Democrat Party home

Chances are Joe Biden’s inappropriate conduct won’t derail his chances in the Democrat primaries, but there’s no doubt he’d emerge as damaged goods heading into the 2020 general election. A #MeToo driven party like the Democrats would be better served by staying (far) away.

Biden: Uneasy, Gross, and Confused

Joe Biden’s actions toward women, as documented in numerous photographs, videos and published recollections are indeed bizarre and discomfiting, but what should really make Americans feel “uneasy, gross and confused” are Lunch Bucket Joe’s 40+ years of being wrong on every issue and using shameless lies and the politics of personal destruction to promote himself.

Joe Biden’s Race Problem

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Biden knows that just as Bernie Sanders, another white male, fell short in crucial South Carolina because of a lack of support among black voters, he, too, has a problem with that most loyal element in the Democratic coalition. With a record like his, how does Biden inoculate himself against attacks by rival candidates, especially candidates of color, in his run for the nomination? One way would be to signal to his party that his 2020 running mate will be a woman of color such as Stacey Abrams.

A History Lesson For Jeb Bush

As we see it, Jeb Bush’s claim that he wants a primary to spark “a conversation about what it is to be a conservative…” is nothing more than a cover story to justify a scorched earth primary campaign against Donald Trump that would only advantage the Democrats and jeopardize all the conservative successes of Trump’s first term.

Beto Launches Apology Tour, Beats Out Bernie In First Day Haul

Like Obama, O’Rourke is an empty vessel who sees himself as a man of destiny, and like Obama he has turned apologizing into an artform, indeed his readiness to apologize for anything and everything was our primary takeaway from his first few days on the campaign trail. Given that, Beto is shaping-up to be the perfect white guilt candidate for a Democrat Party who’s only organizing principle is racial and social animus.

Some old rages return to ride again

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

The young firebrands in the Democratic Party who generally know nothing about the nation’s history are likely to cut Joe Biden nothing. They’re gearing up for a campaign to win reparations for descendants of slaves, and everyone with at least one blue eye should expect to eventually write a check. Mr. Biden’s office says he will stand by his views on busing. If Donald Trump has taught the Democrats anything, it’s that plain speech, never apologizing, never explaining, never cowering in the corner, is what wins elections. Cowering is not pretty.

The Mythologies of ‘Joe Being Joe’ Biden

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

The folksy Biden is hardly the sober and judicious alternative to a supposedly reckless Donald Trump. In many ways, Biden has been far wilder in his speech and decorum — despite nearly a half-century in politics. Could a Biden campaign withstand #MeToo-era scrutiny? Biden’s gaffes are often brushed off as examples of “Joe being Joe,” but Biden has long displayed the sort of sloppy, gross, and politically incorrect behavior that progressives routinely and ironically attribute to the current president.

On Race Nothing Trump Does Will Ever Satisfy His Enemies

Nothing President Trump does, inlcuding signing a Proclamation honoring Dr. Martin Luther King and laying a wreath at his memorial will ever satisfy his enemies, who used those presidential ceremonies to scurrilously attack him as a racist.

Is it Biden Time?

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The press doesn’t appear too eager for Biden's presidential run. That the New York Times is already rehearsing the many objections to his candidacy should worry his advisers. A tired, geriatric air hangs about the two candidates who appear most committed to running, Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden, and it doesn’t help that a candidate even older than those two looks fresher, Bernie Sanders. Biden should quit while he is ahead, but he won’t. His persistent vanity — a tendency to get “out ahead of his skis,” as Obama once put it — simply won’t let him and foreshadows his final fall.

The Mike Flynn Travesty Comes To An End

General Mike Flynn has been destroyed, not for lying to the FBI, but for telling the truth about the failures of Obama and Hillary Clinton. I have contributed to the Michael T. Flynn Legal Defense Fund, I hope you will too.

Democrats In 2020: One Creep Out, One Creep In

With Michael Avenatti’s departure from the scene the creep factor for Democrats' 2020 primary did not go down, in fact it may have gone up a couple of notches with the announcement that #CreepyJoe Biden is actively considering running for the Democrats’ 2020 nomination.

Haters now call Trump supporters the 'dregs of society'

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

People keep insisting that the Democrats and media hate President Trump. Actually, they don’t. As we approach the midterms, the Democrats are determined to punish you for being right in 2016 and to malign Mr. Trump for being successful. “Deplorable” is so 2016 and simply won’t do. We are now the dregs of society, a virus, racist, bullies, fearful, resentful and paranoid. These obscene attacks on the American people were rejected before, and the only way to reject them again is to take nothing for granted in November.

Bring It On Hillary

As much as Hillary Clinton may want a rematch, Democrats may not be ready for Hillary Version 3.0. A new Harvard CAPS/Harris June poll shows former Vice President Joe Biden beating her almost 2 to 1 among Democrats, even as the Party's feminist elite itch for a rematch with President Trump.

Run, Joe, Run

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Well, it would be amusing — Biden vs. Trump, and even better if another empty suit like Kamala Harris joins him. Drunk on the media’s praise, Biden may take the plunge. (Saturday Night Live, to its credit, isn’t joining in this chorus, mocking the notion that “it’s Biden time” in a skit last week about a geriatric, stale Democratic Party.) But if he does run, one suspects his faux-pensive “regret that I am not president” would quickly give way to a real regret that he didn’t quit while he was ahead.
