Assault on America, Day 320: Cherry pickers and white knights; 2020 Democrats in a nutshell

Whether it’s a “white knight” or “cherry picker” waiting in the wings, 2020 Democrats are showing signs of tangible unease as we move towards the primary season. Time is running out for the party to settle on a candidate to take on a very strong President Trump next year -- will they find one?

Assault on America, Day 317: Impeachment won’t stop Trump's quest to Keep America Great

Mark Sanford’s #NeverTrump fool’s errand was destined to fail from the outset. The Democrats’ stupid impeachment witch hunt isn’t the reason why Sanford couldn’t get anyone interested in his cause -- there never really was one to begin with. Trump’s fate will be decided by the voters in 2020… but his enemies will never quit.

Governing By Spending Crisis

We urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Representative and Senators (the toll-free Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044), tell your Representative and Senators that you will no longer countenance trillion-dollar deficits and that your vote in the 2020 election depends on their vote against more spending and for fiscal responsibility.

Assault on America, Day 316: ‘Little Mike’ Bloomberg is no white knight for 2020 Democrats

The media is excited about the prospect of a Michael Bloomberg “white knight” presidential candidacy, but no one else -- including Democrats -- is. The former NYC mayor is too old, too rich and too out-of-touch to be taken seriously in the big picture. If Bloomberg tries it, it’ll only result in one more reputation ruined by national politics.

Assault on America, Day 315: Finding the next Trump proving impossible for talent-thin Dems

By no stretch of the imagination is Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren anything like President Donald Trump. Democrats could only hope their presidential choice would engender the types of political qualities and talents Trump possesses. The harder they search the more they realize it’s a monumental task.

Assault on America, Day 314: Do-nothing House Dems’ day of reckoning is coming… in 2020?

Democrats haven’t been honest with the American public and they’ve especially misled the people who put them in power in 2018 to unclog the legislative logjam of recent times. Instead of working with Trump and Republicans to pass positive laws, they’ve obstructed and obfuscated at every turn. It will catch up with them… but when?

Assault on America, Day 313: Poll shows Trump competitive in battleground states, Dems fret

Like the old saying suggests, bad news does travel fast. By now, Democrats must’ve received word that President Trump is more than competitive with them in many of the states they’d need to win next year. Trump will be on offense, Democrats on defense. Which candidate will hold the line?

Assault on America, Day 310: Political insanity the new normal regardless of 2020 outcome

It's a bit far-fetched to claim attitudes will return to normal after next year’s election, because “normal” doesn’t really exist anymore. Democrats claim Trump is the problem, but would their paranoid convulsions really be any less severe if a different Republican were in the White House? Not a chance.

Assault on America, Day 309: Stupid media blames Trump for Virginia’s vile Democrat swamp

Blaming President Trump is far too unsophisticated of an excuse for the media or self-labeled “experts” to explain the Republican Party’s decade-long slide in Virginia. For now, the Old Dominion looks lost to GOP control. There’s a dire need for a change in tactics. Can conservatives adapt?

Assault on America, Day 308: If idiot ‘Beto’ falls in the Democrat race, does he leave a mark?

It's doubtful anyone outside of “Beto” O’Rourke’s own narrow sphere gave a hoot about his pulling out of the Democrat primary race. As the months go by it’s clear the contest is down to a three or four candidate grudge match. Then the winner gets to take on a newly bolstered President Trump. Any way you slice it, it’s ugly for Democrats.

Assault on America, Day 307: What do Virginia & California have in common? We’ll know today

It’s heartbreaking to think Virginia could be going the liberal way of the Golden State. What would the Founding Fathers think? Medicaid expansion? Abortion on demand up to the moment of birth? Transgender public restrooms? This could be the Old Dominion’s future if Democrats achieve their aims today. California, here we come.

Assault on America, Day 306: For Democrats and the odious media, it’s too late to apologize

In most situations apologizing for wronging someone is a good thing, but it certainly doesn’t apply to the present circumstances involving President Donald Trump and his wicked impeachment detractors. If anything, the Democrats should apologize for dragging the nation through this farce. Don’t hold your breath waiting for it…it’s too late.

Assault on America, Day 303: Voter interest in Amy Klobuchar compares to a one-day sale

American voters like to “shop” candidates and we’re still a long way from folks hauling out their political credit cards and making a purchase. The media likes to suggest Democrats are giving Sen. Amy Klobuchar a long hard look -- but there’s no way the “moderate” label sticks to the woman. Any shopping curiosity ends soon.

Assault on America, Day 302: Petty partisan divide the scariest part of Halloween, 2019

Politics in 2019 is a nasty business -- frightening to many -- and it doesn’t figure to improve over the course of the next year. Be it in the suburbs or at a World Series game, passions and emotions have a tendency to get the better of some people. Halloween once was a time for fun. Is it still?

Assault on America, Day 301: Jane Fonda and Dems give new meaning to ‘Nothing to See Here’

Wherever there are famous people pulling stupid stunts (like Jane Fonda getting arrested every week to “raise awareness” on climate change), there will be establishment media sources close by seeking sensationalism and something to talk about. If people would simply stop watching… perhaps the absurdity would cease.

Assault on America, Day 300: Impeachment ruse exposes Dems as unfit, incompetent and stupid

With impeachment, Democrats clearly want Americans to see something that isn’t there and then lie about it lest we all be called unfit, stupid and incompetent. It’s our own modern-day version of “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” but this time the joke -- and the shame -- is on the swindler Democrats.

Assault on America, Day 299: Pandering to women & transgenders is every Democrat’s duty

Democrat candidates must endure a daily tough time figuring out how to be the right fit for every party voter bloc, but we shouldn’t feel sympathy for them. There’s more to politics than dividing everyone into neat categories such as women and transgenders. This leaves Trump free to talk about jobs -- fair enough.

Assault on America, Day 296: Rand Paul gives civility lesson to nation at war over politics

Civility is certainly important in today’s contentious political environment, but it’s up to both sides to keep things under control and not cast the first insult. No one deserves being lambasted in a public place simply because of differences in opinion, a lesson that liberals apparently ignore time and again.

Assault on America, Day 295: Is Biden surging again or is Pocahontas Warren simply choking?

Joe Biden’s return to a solid lead in the Democrat presidential race likely means party voters are still unsure about which direction to turn. Perhaps “Pocahontas” Warren isn’t the one to challenge the frontrunner, and it’s not clear if one of the others will either. Could it be Hillary’s time?

Assault on America, Day 294: State Department deep staters don’t like Trump. Need we worry?

Sympathy only extends so far when reports surface of poor morale in a federal department due to the Trump administration’s leaders and policies. Diplomats at the State Department don’t have to like what they’re told to do. The days of swamp creatures calling the shots are over. And that’s a good thing.
