Assault on America, Day 69: Does anyone think giving 16-year-olds a vote is a good idea?

Liberals and Democrats love listening to today’s youth unless they’re saying something non-politically correct and supportive of President Trump and traditional values. Giving 16-year-olds the vote fulfills no useful purpose; it’s just another leftist scheme to take over the world.

Assault on America, Day 68: ‘Obama University’ to build millions of Barack and Michelle clones

The fact Obama appears to be reemerging ahead of next year’s election shows how desperate Democrats are to recall a time when they controlled everything. Obama’s “university for social change” is a scary prospect indeed. There’s a lot more damage these people can do.

Assault on America, Day 65: Turmoil in today’s Dem party, where common sense is apostacy

Things are quickly changing for today’s Democrats. One minute they’re rallying behind the old guard (represented by Nancy Pelosi and creepy “Chucky” Schumer), the next they’re clinging to young radicals like AOC. Who will prevail in the struggle to control the liberal party’s future?

Gallup: Trump Economic Approval Highest Yet at 56 Percent

The Gallup Organization reports Trump's rating for handling the economy, 56 percent, is the highest of his presidency and the highest of his approval ratings on any of 14 domestic and foreign issues tested in the latest Gallup poll. Americans' approval of his handling of unemployment is nearly as high, at 54 percent.

Assault on America, Day 64: Presidents need a congressional check, not an abusive impediment

Some would argue it’s about time we had a national conversation on executive powers, but the Democrats’ resolution blocking Trump’s emergency declaration isn’t the right occasion. Senator Rand Paul isn’t wrong very often, but this is one position he’d be wise to reconsider.

Dumb And/or Dishonest Liberals Insult Your Intelligence

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Let’s be clear – Donald Trump has no moral obligation to torpedo the slow but steady and real progress he has made with North Korea towards avoiding a war that would send tens of thousands of American soldiers home in boxes simply because the media wants a gotcha moment on camera. Diplomacy is not pretty, and it must pain the Warmbier family, but there are tens of thousands of American lives at stake and if Trump is willing to swallow hard and say what he must to save them, then God bless him for it.

Assault on America, Day 63: Only in Democrat- land is calling someone ‘decent’ a downer

Common sense indicates President Trump doesn’t have much to fear from Joe Biden or any challenger in 2020. Whenever a presidential hopeful must explain why he called someone “decent” to his potential backers, it’s not a harbinger of electability. Such is the dilemma of Democrats today.

Assault on America, Day 62: Impeachment and primary challenges won’t derail Trump train

Democrats and #NeverTrumpers dream about impeachment and possible primary challenges -- and other means -- to end the Trump presidency early (such as through the ill-defined 25th Amendment). It will take much more than hope to take Trump down; the voters will decide.

Assault on America, Day 61: On Trump and Kim, saying something nice is the best way to win

Results-oriented Donald Trump no doubt couldn’t care less what his detractors said about his recently concluded meeting with Kim Jong Un. Trump indicated the process will take a long time and it’s good they’re still on positive personal terms. Trump’s right, and history backs him up.

Assault on America, Day 58: Democrats won’t get away with abusing the blue slip & filibuster

When Democrats can’t legitimately win on the merits of an issue, they cook the rules to prevail regardless. It’s long past time Republican leaders reformed the process to function more like the Founding Fathers intended, and tyranny of the minority will finally become a relic of the past.

Toward sublime and 'Nobel' leadership

L. Scott Lingamfelter, Washington Times

The United States should — only after North Korea agrees to U.S. denuclearization terms, an expanded DMZ, the incentive package tied to verifiable nuclear disarmament, and the joint commission — establish full diplomatic relations with North Korea. The planets are aligned now with a U.S. president determined to lead, an international community weary of a nuclearized North Korea, and a Kim Jong-un seeking to survive. Who knows, if Trump succeds in his mission, this may turn out to be quite “Nobel.”

Donald Trump, The Peace President

Whether President Trump’s approach of dangling peace and prosperity in front of North Korea’s Kim Jong Un will achieve long-term peace remains to be seen, but it is certain that over the past 50-years the foreign policy establishment’s efforts in Korea have failed, where Trump has stopped the missile launches and nuclear tests. Americans should give peace, and President Trump a chance.

Assault on America, Day 57: Democrats’ views on climate & abortion expose contempt for kids

As days go by it’s increasingly evident Democrats willingly deny common sense to further their designs on climate and partial birth abortion. It’s all part of the radicalization of their agenda and shines a bright spotlight on President Trump’s mission to return America to a sense of sanity.

Assault on America, Day 56: Democrats running short on victims to purchase at the ballot box

If it were up to Democrats, they’d tax the wealthy out of existence and redistribute the booty to anyone who’d buy into their victimization credo and provide votes for them. Neither enacting universal daycare nor reparations for slavery would satisfy their hunger. In Democrat-land the sky’s the limit.

Assault on America, Day 55: Hamstrung Dems powerless to stop Trump’s border declaration

So much of what occurs on Capitol Hill these days is purely symbolic, none more so than this week’s Democrat resolution to terminate Trump’s national emergency declaration. Americans should give thanks the process worked in this instance -- and the problem might actually be resolved.

Assault on America, Day 54: Extremism in pursuit of Democrat fantasies is indeed a vice

Democrats should think twice before labeling their political opponents as extreme, because it serves to draw more attention to their own bizarre hypocrisies. There are only so many voters who’ll buy the Democrats’ inane class warfare rhetoric -- the rest will just leave the building.

Assault on America, Day 51: #NeverTrump’s going extinct like the dodo bird … anyone care?

America is at political war and sooner or later everyone must choose sides. #NeverTrumpers think they’re neutral like Switzerland in WWII, but it doesn’t work that way. President Trump isn’t perfect but he’s on the right side -- and he has two years of accomplishments to back him up.

Assault on America, Day 50: Is Bernie Sanders the wave of America’s future?

Bernie Sanders will never be president. The fact he’s frequently mentioned as one of a few likely frontrunners in the 2020 Democrat presidential race is a poor reflection on a party that’s quickly slipping its tether to reality. How low will the Democrats sink? Time will reveal.

Assault on America, Day 49: Petrified Pelosi threatens ‘national emergency’ on gun violence

Democrats don’t need to advocate for taking away Americans’ gun rights but they do it anyway. Whether it’s for political considerations or just a plain “we’ve got to do something” sense of urgency, Democrats are on the wrong side of history with this issue. Who will stop them?

Assault on America, Day 48: Critics pounce but Trump did the right thing on national emergency

Politics is a nasty business, especially when elements of both sides care more about pleasing their powers-that-be than satisfying the will of the citizenry. Trump represents the “forgotten” people. He made the right call on the national emergency and we can only hope he’ll keep his negotiating skills intact.
