Assault on America, Day 596: Joe ‘n Kamala, Day 3: Mean Girls Night at the DNC w/Obama cameo

With Joe Biden set to speak on Thursday night, Democrats will finish up the first of its kind virtual convention. As expected, the first three days were one continuous Trump-savaging grunge fest. Day Three -- forever to be known as “Mean Girls” night -- was much of the same. Which leaves viewers with just one question: Where the heck is Hunter Biden?

Assault on America, Day 595: Joe ‘n Kamala, Day 2, plus satirical look at Biden’s last VP vet

All throughout Day 2 of the Democrat National Convention, one theme emerged: America needs government. That’s the main difference between Democrats and Republicans. Democrats portray people as helpless lambs who can’t survive without Uncle Sam dishing out a handout, cutting a check and administering medicine.

Assault on America, Day 594: Joe ‘n Kamala, Day 1: Viruses & the Post Office by infomercial

Democrats gathered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (or wait, no they didn’t) to make their case to Americans in the 2020 election. We heard a lot about COVID-19, a lot about how great Joe Biden is and even a healthy smattering of cheerleading for the United States Post Office. What was missing? Unity.

Weatherman Fired For Accurately Reporting Which Way The Wind Is Blowing

Everyone complains about the weather, but nobody does anything about it, is an old gag attributed to Mark Twain, but it turns out, as on-air personality and University of Washington professor Cliff Mass discovered, if you do try to do anything about it you will get fired, at least if you work at NPR.

Assault on America, Day 593: The boring Joe & Kamala show to be four days of Trump bashing

In the age of COVID-19, this week’s Democrat convention is certain to be like no other. There are plenty of storylines -- will Joe Biden stay awake? Will Kamala Harris be able to convince people she really is a warm, likeable human being? Does anyone care? Can Democrats go two minutes without digging into Donald Trump? We’re about to find out.

Assault on America, Day 590: Guilt consumed Dems and the meaning of a Gettysburg speech

It's sad to see how much the concept of guilt -- real or imagined -- drives the agenda of the Democrat Party today. From Joe Biden feeling obligated to choose an African-American female as his running mate to ripping President Trump for the possibility of delivering his acceptance speech at Gettysburg, liberals are consumed with shame. Where will it lead them?

Assault on America, Day 589: Dems terrified COVID-19 fear flame will die out before November

It's hard enough to focus Americans’ attention on political matters for more than a few days let alone months like Democrats are attempting to do with the COVID-19 pandemic panic. Sooner or later sensible people figure out that the world isn’t coming to an end and getting sick means getting sick -- and getting well in most cases. In 2020, voters demand more; Trump should give it to them.

Assault on America, Day 588: If most likable candidate always wins, it’s Trump in a landslide

If it can be shown the most likable presidential candidate always wins, the battle for the White House in 2020 could come down to whether President Trump can keep calm and composed under persistent pestering by the media and whether Joe Biden risks being humiliated by actually campaigning in person. Smart money is on Trump to prevail.

Assault on America, Day 587: Americans must realize we deserve a lot better than Joe Biden

It doesn’t take a 19th century French philosopher to suggest that Americans should consider the whole picture this November when they head to the voting booth to choose between Republicans and Democrats. Liberal party members and the media would prefer to make it all about Trump, but somewhere along the line, folks must realize there’s a lot more to it.

Assault on America, Day 586: How will Dems spin double-digit GDP growth in the third quarter?

With the party conventions set to take place in the next two weeks, Americans are enjoying the last bit of calm before the political storm. With Joe Biden announcing his running mate and forecasts of economic improvements by Election Day, we gather that the rhetorical battle is just about to commence. Grab your helmet and hit the fox hole, it will be nasty.

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.
