North Korea

Trump proves critics wrong as he advances his North Korea policy with Kim meeting

Fred Fleitz, Fox News

The talks could easily stall or fail again. Trump’s negotiators also know that given North Korea’s long record of violating prior agreements, a new agreement will have to be ironclad. with extremely strong verification provisions. Perhaps Kim will never choose to walk through that door. But perhaps the confidence-building that President Trump has initiated with his personal diplomacy will convince Kim to make a denuclearization deal that formally ends hostilities and allows North Korea to join the community of nations. All Americans should hope President Trump succeeds, because his success in this important endeavor would enhance U.S. national security.

Assault on America, Day 181: Joe Biden is no racist, but he’s got plenty of other disorders

Political pundits are paid big bucks to make mountains out of molehills, and that’s exactly what took place last week in raking Joe Biden over hot coals for his feeble response to Kamala Harris’s “That little girl was me” monologue. Biden’s past will follow him alright, but not because of racism.

Assault on America, Day 180: Democrats are more than an obstacle to sanity, they’re a burden

Last week Democrats demonstrated they’ll stop at nothing to defeat President Trump next year, including raising phony concerns that he won’t leave office when the time comes and also by withholding money to simply execute America’s immigration laws. All in all, a shameful display.

Assault on America, Day 177: That’s it? America groans as filled-out Dem field fails to astound

America breathed a sigh of relief as the Democrat presidential candidates wrapped up their first “debates” of the 2020 cycle. Predictably, nothing much was ventured, nothing gained. Joe Biden will keep leading until he shoots himself in the foot -- or Democrats dump all of them and start over.

Assault on America, Day 176: First ten Dems debate, the winner is caffeine & anti-depressants

The only thing that was conclusively proven on Wednesday night was the Democrats will struggle to nominate a candidate who can match the prominence of Donald Trump. Trump may not be universally popular, but everybody knows him -- more than can be said for this sorry bunch of Democrat wannabes.

Assault on America, Day 175: It’s here! 2020 Democrats open (rhetorical) fire on each other!

If history is a guide, tonight’s and tomorrow night’s Democrat debates won’t do much to change the dynamic in the party race -- or American politics in general. This week marks the beginning of the official process, the opening salvos in what will be a very long war to win the election.

Assault on America, Day 174: D’s and R’s dump millions to wage a messaging war in 2020

As with every campaign, messaging will be extremely important in 2020. Democrats will vie for the title of most extreme and liberal to please primary voters and President Trump will continue to preside over the GOP, the two parties preparing for an all-out messaging war in the coming months.

Assault on America, Day 173: Hollywood liberals make hay over illegal aliens’ beating hearts

Liberals like Alyssa Milano should be careful about attaching the “hypocrite” label to anyone, much less those who are pro-life protectors of the unborn. Neither the immigration issue nor the culture war will be decided by outspoken Hollywood actors. American voters will notice, too.

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.
