Assault on America, Day 511: Exploring the difference between shouldn’t and can’t be done

There’s a definite difference between what shouldn’t and what can’t happen. Opening up the economy is no longer an option, it’s a necessity. The rest is up to individuals to decide. And if a new wave of sicknesses returns in the fall/winter, there’s no going back to lockdown status. It’s never been more clear -- it can’t be done.

Assault on America, Day 510: This November, vote like life depends on it -- because it might

Democrats and Republicans will claim that their governors’ coronavirus responses helped save lives, but both sides can’t be right and statistics don’t lie. Now more than ever we see evidence that elections have consequences. Think about it before you cast your vote this November. The life you save might be your own.

Assault on America, Day 506: Nancy Pelosi’s $3 trillion slush fund disguised as virus relief

It doesn’t take a genius to wonder why Democrats are working so hard to keep the economy closed -- they’re doing it so people will blame Trump and Republicans for the worst of the damage. With COVID-19 cases and deaths steadily declining, it will be much harder for the bigger government party to get its way. Have a pleasant and meaningful Memorial Day.

Assault on America, Day 505: America’s youth experience Great Awakening coronavirus-style

Every day it seems we’re awakening to a new set of surprises during the coronavirus pandemic and resultant economic panic. Recent graduates will have their own special challenges in the coming weeks and months and they don’t need more fearmongering. Now more than ever, we need the optimism of President Trump.

Assault on America, Day 504: Will the ghost of 'The Bern' haunt Grampa Joe on Election Day?

Both parties’ prospects depend on being able to turn out their bases and here’s thinking Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats will encounter more than their share of resistance from the Bernie Sanders revolutionary faction. Much damage was done during the party primaries and won’t be repaired no matter how many endorsements flow in the interim.

Assault on America, Day 503: Full recovery is possible in politics. The economy? We’ll see

Surveys confirm politics is taking a backseat to worries over the coronavirus pandemic, but sooner or later people will need to pay attention to the statistics and hedge bets that things will be okay. Since going “Back to the Future” isn’t an option in the real world, Americans must rely on the good sense and work ethic that brought them to 2020 in the first place.

Assault on America, Day 502: Deliver us from fear, Chinese Communist Party virus edition

This ever-evolving nightmare must end and common sense says to err on the side of optimism and the belief our country can endure the worst of trials and pandemics. This isn’t the Black Death we’re talking about. At some point, government must trust the people, and maybe then, the people will put their fear away and start trusting the government in return.

Assault on America, Day 499: Democrats to ditch convention over worries about doddering Joe

We all spend too much time worrying about things that probably will never happen. Democrats are taking their uncertainties to the extreme by (likely) canceling their quadrennial nominating convention this summer. Perhaps their fears are justified, however: President Trump is dismantling Obama’s legacy -- and they are powerless to stop it.

Assault on America, Day 498: Childish Grampa Joe losing substance battle with President Trump

With the quarantine portion of the weird coronavirus conundrum seemingly winding to a close, politicians like Joe Biden will be compelled to come out of hiding and supply substance rather than submitting op-eds to the Washington Post and calling Trump “childish.” Will Joe offer something more than Trump Derangement Syndrome? Voters want to know.

Assault on America, Day 497: After COVID-19, bring on limited government and more freedom

Few would argue with the need to bring about change in the upcoming months and years, but it can’t be because politicians claim the system is badly flawed. The economy was doing well a few months ago and with more freedom and some rational government moves, we might see that “out with the old and in with the new” is a good thing.

Assault on America, Day 496: George W. Bush shouldn’t be lecturing Trump on human behavior

The only reason why some liberals praised George W. Bush last week was to score a backhanded slap at President Trump. Trump’s political enemies aren’t always easily identified but they seem to act in predictable ways. Like with different colored bears in the wild, they need to be separated accordingly.

Assault on America, Day 495: Time to hit brakes on federal spending and worry about tomorrow

With the health threat from the coronavirus winding down in the individual states, it’s time to carefully consider the next steps and not sustain the out-of-control federal spending of the past three months. A fiscal emergency can be just as urgent as a disease pandemic, but moves made now will heavily impact the future.

Assault on America, Day 492: ‘Tomorrow’ is just about all that’s left for doddering Joe Biden

It boggles the mind to consider Joe Biden is destined to be the Democrats’ 2020 nominee, as he struggles to string together coherent sentences and doesn’t appear to be in control of his own faculties. Joe’s search for the perfect running mate match must be taxing what’s left of his limited cognitive capacity. Down the road awaits Donald Trump. Daunting.

Who Pays When the Dying Dictator Wasn't Dying?

Tim Graham, CNS News

How many times during the Trump era have we witnessed one or two "senior U.S. officials" feed the media a "bombshell" story that turned out to be wrong? The nation's top media outlets just say "Trust us" when they hide the identities of their sources, because this information is so crucial and important. Debacles like this underline why the public should be skeptical. The primary debunker of these rumors was the South Korean government. Journalists like these should stop pompously protesting that they are a special class of humanity that represents "objective truth" and try harder actually to report some truth.

Assault on America, Day 491: Now more than ever, Trump should tout economy for reelection

Everyone knows the economy will be the foremost issue in this year’s election, and most people recognize President Trump is the best leader to handle the near-impossible task of getting things back to normal. In making the argument, Trump should cite both his record and his experience, assets no opponent could match.

Assault on America, Day 490: Forrest Gump sets the line between science and common sense

These days it’s hard to tell where “science” stops and good judgment begins, but the coronavirus conundrum and China’s role in the pandemic will help reveal the dividing line. Democrat politicians can only hide behind graphs, charts and models for so long -- sooner or later, they’ll have to start making sense.

Assault on America, Day 489: Time to fuel up and let Trump be Trump across America again

Word that President Trump plans to get on the road again is welcome news to conservatives and Republicans weary of seeing him confined to the White House and unable to appeal directly to voters instead of being bludgeoned by Democrats and the media without let-up. Here’s to well-worn luggage, Mr. Trump.

Assault on America, Day 488: COVID-19 will come back in the fall. Tell us what we don’t know

The experts think they’re being helpful by predicting a new round of coronavirus infections after the summer season, but it’s not telling us anything we don’t already know. Debate will continue as to the wisdom of shutting down the economy in the first place. For most of us, it’s time to relearn what it was like to enjoy basic liberties.

Assault on America, Day 485: What happened to #BelieveSurvivors? The Tara Reade travesty

Biden accuser Tara Reade isn’t likely to go away, but the Democrat establishment wouldn’t dream of allowing her a full hearing in the court of public opinion. All the party’s pontificating over “believing survivors” during the Kavanaugh sideshow goes out the window when one of their own is threatened. Grampa Joe will be on the ballot in November.

Assault on America, Day 484: Media hypocrites overreact to wrong kind of government shutdown

As the coronavirus episode has revealed, Democrats and their media enablers don’t act the least bit bothered by keeping America’s business doors closed as long as it plays to their political prospects. It’s a far cry from their concerns for federal employees during government shutdowns. How do they explain the distinction?
