Assault on America, Day 170: Desperate Dem candidates crawl over broken glass to draw looks

Crazy plans are in abundance these days as Democrat presidential candidates hit the campaign trail hard hoping to draw notice from party voters -- and more importantly, the sensationalism hungry media. Corey Booker and “Beto” O’Rourke probably won’t get far, but they’ll sure jump through hoops to get a TV spot.

Assault on America, Day 169: Trump train rolled through Orlando, Democrats left tied to track

A year from now when both parties are gearing up for their nominating conventions few will remember what was done or said at Tuesday night’s Trump reelection announcement rally. People will be too focused on choosing between the candidates then -- and Trump will definitely come out ahead.

Assault on America, Day 168: Americans brace for the 2020 Democrat debates. Will they matter?

Party primary debates can make a big difference in every campaign cycle, but only if the candidates are already well known or find a unique way to present themselves. Issues always take a backseat at such “beauty contest” media sideshows. Will next week’s Democrat forums prove any different?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

Assault on America, Day 147: What does Beto -- or any Democrat -- know about farming & trade?

Up until recently the 2020 Democrat presidential race featured a bunch of candidates saying and doing everything they could to attract attention and boost name recognition. Now it’s almost time for the Trump bashers to get serious… Brace yourself for a lot of crazy stuff in the coming months.

Assault on America, Day 146: If Democrats stay in power the earth might not last 12 more years

Anyone who looks at today’s political gridlock and thinks it’s the system’s fault clearly isn’t seeing the true picture. One party wants to push through reforms as fast as they can write them and the other hopes nothing ever gets passed. Nobody wins, but the American people certainly lose... big time.

Assault on America, Day 142: Memorial Day means honoring the American flag, not dissing it

Memorial Day is a time when we silently give thanks to those who are no longer here to receive it, a day when saluting the flag and paying homage to the values our country represents is of paramount importance. America is made of inspiring stories of personal achievement -- let’s all be thankful.
