Assault on America, Day 583: Carl Bernstein & the Trump coup that never was nor ever will be

Joe Biden can run from presidential debates, but he can’t hide from his record. President Trump’s detractors can hope he’ll just leave quietly before this fall’s election, but they’re plain crazy. Eventually the truth comes out, and here’s thinking Trump will emerge as the more credible candidate. And it won’t even be close.

Assault on America, Day 582: Hey Joe Biden, your VP search Ain’t No Way to Treat a Lady

“Unity” is a fleeting concept in today’s America and it doesn’t seem likely folks will be brought together when Grampa Joe Biden’s running mate is announced, the filibuster is done away with or the media keeps up with its all-hate-all-the-time coverage of President Trump. Our country is in crisis and a lot of bad actors are making it worse.

Assault on America, Day 581: What do Dems and flag-snubbing NBA players have in common?

Professional athletes and Democrat congressmen and women behaving badly seems to be commonplace these days. It’s almost like they’re trying to get folks riled up rather than providing entertainment and good governance. They couldn’t do worse if they tried… or maybe the insults are the latest salvos in a greater war to destroy what remains of American culture.

Assault on America, Day 580: Trump is right, national mail-in balloting would be a disaster

President Trump opened a can of worms last week when he tweeted that the election could be postponed until after the COVID-19 national panic subsides. Democrats will use the occasion to step up their calls for mail-in balloting, a tragic national disaster waiting to happen if it comes down to it. Republicans had better step up.

'Intensifying' into violence

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

Democrats and journalists have struggled to explain the spike. AOC, fresh from "Les Miz," suspects fathers are stealing to feed their children. The NYT indicts summer heat waves. They resist the obvious explanation: Less policing plus lighter punishment and delegitimizing law enforcement yields more violent crime. Almost all the extra victims, including children, are minorities in underprivileged neighborhoods. Some black lives evidently don't matter so much. But that's not a story most journalists want to cover. Falling in the same category is the continued unraveling of the Russia-collusion hoax.

Assault on America, Day 579: America needs a bubble to isolate from media/political stupidity

It goes without saying a lot of people will have much to answer for once the “bubble” is burst and there’s no longer a need to worry about the CCP virus. Will we all look back on these times with humor and understanding of what went on? Or will it be more like a gigantic societal hangover with people asking, “I did what?”

Democrat Liars Are Barely Even Trying to Fool Us Anymore

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

While blaming Trump for what is manifestly the fault of Democrat catspaws is important to the op, what is also vital to their poisonous scheme is convincing you that this is a movement of mass and not of bowel. There simply are not that many people rioting. They only manage to round up a few hundred cretins a night in Portland, but if you dive below the surface you see that this fight is an idiot magnet for losers across the country. This is a nation of 330 million people, and maybe 2,000 are involved in the violence the mainstream media shows every night (a sanitized form conveying the official narrative).

Assault on America, Day 576: Bored Democrats politicizing COVID-19 to petrify America

One month away from the traditional, post Labor Day start of the presidential campaign season, Democrats are pulling out all the stops to pin the ongoing CCP virus pandemic on President Trump and his administration. The liberal party’s “solutions” always involve dumping more money; other than that, they haven’t a clue.

Silence and Betrayals of GOP Senate Leaders Killing America

The silence of Republican leaders has led Democratic leaders to think they’re winning the battle over the future of America. And why shouldn’t the Democrats think they can win? For the past three years the GOP’s congressional leaders hid whenever any part of Donald Trump’s conservative – populist MAGA agenda came up, avoiding any showdown with the Democrats over everything from the Wall to the revolution going on in the streets of Democrat-controlled cities.

Assault on America, Day 575: Silent Majority and humble Trump will let it roar on Election Day

This year’s election is far too important to make it all about making an example of Grampa Joe Biden or haggish Nancy Pelosi or arrogant and condescending Chuck Schumer. Stick to the “presidential” stuff and the rest will follow. If Trump can keep it up, the “secret” vote won’t feel as compelled to remain invisible.

Waiting for the Counterrevolution

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

At some point, if the rioting and revolution and overt socialism continue, the majority will weigh in, likely from mid September to mid October. The Democratic Party knows this. So its functionaries are now frantically trying to portray Trump as the instigator of the violence — or claim there is no violence at all. They permanently script and seclude the cognitively challenged Biden, and redefine Antifa and BLM as our own sons and daughters who, if a little rowdy and zealous at times, have their hearts in the right place and soon will calm down and join the victorious Democratic war wagon. Pushback is coming this fall.

Assault on America, Day 574: Joe Biden’s agonizing quest for a mini-me drawing to a close

They’d never admit it, but Democrats are scared to death of the prospect of having to govern in a post-Trump world, since he’s the only thing that unites them. Grampa Joe Biden must be vacillating over the different women on his short list, afraid of making the wrong choice -- but even more terrified of making the right one.

Where Are the New Heroes of the Revolution?

Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness

There are few progressive icons past or present who by the rules of the revolution would not be canceled out. Cultural revolutions are suicidal, nihilistic, and incoherent. Those who survive such cannibalism do so by arbitrarily exempting their leaders from their own rules of mandated purity, anti-Western cant, and no statute of limitations. If there is any coherent message in this otherwise incoherent summer, it is that a few thousand wannabees have launched a revolution with the full expectation that their own careers will be thereby enhanced in the most remuneratively Western and capitalist fashion possible.

Assault on America, Day 573: NeverTrumpers who support Biden show it’s purely personal

In the 2020 election, it’s become clear that politics is policy. Now more than ever there’s a difference between the two presidential candidates and two parties that can’t be ignored simply because of personality differences. #NeverTrumpers didn’t have much of a leg to stand on in 2016 -- now they’re just downright wrong.

Assault on America, Day 572: Democrats leap over taste line in calling it ‘The Trump Virus’

The only thing Speaker Nancy Pelosi accomplished by calling the health crisis “The Trump Virus” was to awaken more Americans to the absurdity of blaming everything on the president. Considering the totality of the circumstances, voter attitudes are volatile at best. People are tired of the finger-pointing and name calling. When will it end?

How Senator Cory Gardner Can Revive His Flagging Campaign

Here’s our advice to Senator Gardner: Fire your Mitch McConnell endorsed consultants and get out on the campaign trail with state Rep. Patrick Neville. Go to every town in Colorado with a radio station and every city with a TV station and call a rally to “Back the Blue,” and make it clear that you will tolerate no violence from ANTIFA or BLM thugs. Tell the law-abiding citizens and voters of Colorado you stand for law and order against Hickenlooper and the Far Left New Democrats that are behind his campaign.

Assault on America, Day 569: Demagoguery and demographics define 2020’s Democrat party

It's not exactly a surprise, but Democrats’ demagoguery over the coronavirus pandemic is astonishing, even for them. It might be that they’re desperately trying to cover for the obvious mental deficiencies of nominee-to-be Joe Biden, but they can’t hide him for long. Where is your running mate, Joe? Who will it be?

Vandals, Marxists, Antifa lay siege to Portland, while Dems decry federal intervention

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

In today’s upside-down world, the federal government coming to the aid of a city under siege has enraged Democratic leadership such as Nancy Pelosi. Democratic leadership calls federal law enforcement “stormtroopers” as local leadership fights against assistance to stop murderous crimes waves killing their cities. The rhetoric against police continues, and police budgets are getting cut, as in New York, where certain crime units have already been disbanded. Democrats revel in anarchy and mayhem, and throwing your family into the volcano is the price they decided is worth paying as they imagine making Mr. Trump look bad.

The Disgrace of Portland

Rich Lowry, National Review

This isn’t hard: It is the people attacking federal property who bear moral responsibility for what’s happening in Portland. In all the cities around the country where nihilistic mobs aren’t trying to burn down symbols of our justice system, there’s no enhanced presence of federal officers. It would be one thing if municipal authorities could legitimately claim that they have things under control. They don’t. The mobs have been clashing with the local cops for months. This longstanding riot is a stark commentary on the misgovernance of Mayor Wheeler, who is better at insulting federal law enforcement than doing his job.
