Assault on America, Day 131: R’s & D’s aren’t just mortgaging the future, they’re ruining it

Things won’t improve until there’s the political will to bring government spending under control. It’ll require a complete change in attitudes among the citizenry, too -- and a good sales job by our elected leaders. Something’s gotta give. Mortgaging the future is a reality…but there won’t be a house left to give the children.

Assault on America, Day 128: Pelosi’s awkward dilemma equals big opening for GOP next year

No one should feel sorry for Nancy Pelosi. She’s got a near impossible dilemma -- to manage the outspoken get-Trump fringe nuts in her caucus and still offer a coherent package of ideas for Americans to latch onto. Republicans have a golden opportunity to beat Democrats in 2020. Will they take it?

Assault on America, Day 127: Booker’s proposed gun grab makes him scariest of all 2020 Dems

Unfortunately for Americans, Sen. Cory Booker’s not being ironic in yearning to federalize gun ownership. True, he’s just trying to draw attention to his flailing presidential bid, but none of the other 2020 Democrats condemned anything in Booker’s crackpot plan either. Talk about “scary”.

Assault on America, Day 126: Obama blames Hillary for wrecking his legacy. Is he wrong?

Barack Obama shouldn’t be griping about his legacy -- those who live in glass houses should not throw stones. Hillary Clinton’s 2016 loss didn’t tarnish his reputation beyond what he’d already done to himself through eight years of arrogant malfeasance. 2020 Democrats seemingly haven’t grasped the lesson.

Assault on America, Day 125: Trump commission should shoot back at climate change commissars

Contrary to the claims of Democrats and the media, science is far from “settled” on climate change or other debatable concepts. Trump’s NSC climate commission may or may not be created but the political fight over the matter is unfinished. Some advice: if an enemy is shooting at you, “shoot back.”

Assault on America, Day 124: Democrats’ Trump tax return fix a prelude to all-out war in 2020

Democrats aren’t doing much to hide how they intend to approach the 2020 election. Anyone who thinks the 2016 campaign was nasty better gear up for the political war to end all wars next year. Donald Trump represents the biggest barrier to the realization of all the Democrats’ sinister schemes. Plan accordingly.

Assault on America, Day 121: Who hurts his party more, Trump or Crazy Bernie Sanders?

It’s always comical whenever a liberal commentator offers advice to Republicans and even more hilarious when he or she attempts to define the Democrats. There’s no way that keeping Trump as head of the GOP hurts Republicans now -- a lesson Democrats will realize soon enough.

Assault on America, Day 120: On infrastructure, if you [don’t] build it Democrats will come

Democrats’ desperation to beat Trump in 2020 surpasses any desire to help the country, including passing a responsible infrastructure bill that won’t raise taxes. Pelosi and “Chucky” are only checking all the appropriate political (“We gotta do something”) boxes by appearing to cooperate. The inevitable result? Another stalemate.

Assault on America, Day 119: Trump can’t even send congrats without being called a racist

Receiving recognition is special and it’s a great thing to earn praise from the president no matter what the hyper-sensitive liberal media thinks of it. It’s a sad fact Trump can’t even offer a compliment without some commentator reading racism into it. Will the left’s baseless assaults never end?

Assault on America, Day 118: Mind-numbed media wouldn't survive without Donald Trump

The media will maintain their Trump fascination as long as the president continues to draw people towards him. Some loath Trump, others adore him. Similarly, the 2020 Democrat candidates can’t win without stealing some of the attention Trump gets. How will it balance out?

Assault on America, Day 117: Joe (race) Biden (race), Democrat (race) for (race) President!

A thorough perusal of the Democrat presidential candidate menu reveals a collection of entrees that will either make Americans ill or put them to sleep. Joe Biden may be the special du jour but beneath his provocative ingredient description lies a man who doesn’t have a clue why he’s even running.

Assault on America, Day 114: Pocahontas Warren’s bizarre student loan payoff ploy will flop

Elizabeth Warren is buried in the lower echelon of 2020 Democrat presidential candidates, which should result in a host of crazy proposals intended to gain traction with the party base. Be it with paying off everyone’s student loans or nationalizing marijuana, “Pocahontas” is flat out of her mind.

Assault on America, Day 113: Rush Limbaugh, Trump and the non-greatness of Tiger Woods

Real heroes are parents who toil in relative anonymity, known only to those in their immediate circles. Or military men and women who risk their lives for us. Or border patrol agents and policemen who do their jobs out of service and love. Does Tiger Woods fit in the same “greatness” category? You decide.

Assault on America, Day 112: What kind of team bans ‘God Bless America’ due to 1930s satire?

It’s sad that few probably noticed the New York Yankees’ removal of Kate Smith’s classic “God Bless America” from the seventh inning stretch. It’s even worse the team felt a need to do it based on events from a different time and mindset. Such is the way of the politically correct.

Assault on America, Day 111: Why America will never fall for ‘President Pete’ or Oprah’s guru

While it’s true any natural born American citizen over the age of 35 (and having lived in the U.S. for 14 years) is eligible to be president, it takes a lot more than a few interesting personal chits to realize the dream. Pete Buttigieg and Marianne Williamson are not typical Democrats -- and their candidacies are a punchline.

Mitt Romney Is A Virtue Signaling Twit

President Trump’s economic policies are working too well for Romney to credibly criticize them and his border policy is too popular with the Republican Party’s base to risk criticizing. So, all Romney has left is to make Trump himself the object of his disapproval and so keep the Republican establishment’s anti-Trump resistance alive.

Assault on America, Day 110: Nauseated GOPers sickened by Mitt Romney’s bashing of Trump

Thankfully no one pays any attention to what Mitt Romney thinks these days. Perhaps he should realize it and cease taking cheap shots at a president who is keeping the party’s promises and faces what is sure to be a serious leftist socialist Democrat challenger next year. Can’t Mitt just shut up?

Assault on America, Day 106: Easter, American politics and the hope of resurrection & recovery

Easter reminds us of the power of redemption and second comings, particularly relevant this year with the tragic near-destruction of the historic Notre Dame Cathedral. American politics could see some surprising comebacks of its own next year, in Alabama and in nationwide House races. Stay tuned.

Assault on America, Day 105: GOP establishment remains Trump’s most visible 2020 opponent

Instead of joining President Trump in his relentless drive to steer American government back towards its constitutional limits, the Republican establishment is taking the opposite approach. It just goes to show, it’ll take much longer than four years to change the rotten culture in Washington.

Assault on America, Day 104: Both R’s and D’s can’t get their arms around the media’s lies

Democrats and Republicans will never view the media the same way, though at times both parties have beefs with how reporters handle issues. All politicians wish the media would pass along facts without embellishment, but fiscally speaking, it’s an ugly picture any way you look at it.
