Assault on America, Day 559: Robert Redford, Joe Biden & the Way We Were in the DC swamp

Unity is hard to come by in the United States today, and it certainly won’t be realized by electing Grampa Joe Biden to serve as the next president. The former vice president has spent a virtual half-century at the seat of power in the DC swamp and hasn’t accomplished much in his entire life. Where’s the empathy, Joe? Anyone? Anyone?

Assault on America, Day 558: How Kanye West could decide the outcome of the 2020 election

We don’t know if Kanye West was serious about running for president, but it would make for a very odd addition to an election that’s already off the charts strange as it is. Perhaps West could stir Joe Biden into taking positions on issues that concern black voters beyond the typical Democrat race panders. School choice would definitely get Democrats nervous.

Assault on America, Day 555: Seeking a cure for America’s addiction to systemic liberalism

There’s little doubt systemic liberalism exists in many parts of America today, particularly in large cities, the logical result of politicians with good intentions but insufficient wisdom to govern effectively. Radical separatist groups such as Black Lives Matter have altered the landscape of American politics -- and voters must wise-up before it’s too late.

Assault on America, Day 554: Are leftists using Biden as a Trojan Horse for a true believer?

Time will tell whether Grampa Joe Biden’s candidacy is serving as a sham intended to sneak a leftist vice-presidential candidate into the Oval Office without having been elected to the position. With the Democrat nominee-to-be demonstrating more and more signs of mental incapacity, something’s got to give -- and very soon.

Assault on America, Day 553: Trump touts a Garden of Heroes, Biden counters with racism

President Trump’s idea to create a “National Garden of American Heroes” was a stroke of brilliance for a lagging campaign that needed a new and fresh rallying point after months of health scare panic and political violence. Joe Biden can’t hope to match Trump’s positive message of reverence for all of American history. Trump is back on the right path.

Assault on America, Day 552: Americans get nowhere by taking media version of new normal

It has indeed been a long time since we’ve felt “normal” in America, and there’s a vast difference of opinion as to whether we’ll ever reach that level of comfort again. Truth and facts are always our best allies, but if the mainstream establishment media won’t deliver them, then it’s up to the rest of us to get the word out.

Are Uncivil Protests and Mob Violence Winning?

Patrick J. Buchanan, Creators

Has the uncivil protest mob won already? People have gotten away with massive demonstrations blocking roads, highways and parks. Shopping areas in elite and working-class sections of scores of cities have been torched and looted. Police have been insulted, taunted and showered with debris. They have made mass civil disobedience an acceptable and even praiseworthy form of protest, if you are justifiably outraged. They have won near-immunity for burning and looting stores. Blanket amnesties at the state and city level appear to be in the cards. Media helped the radicals turn public opinion against the cops.

Vulture Joe Biden no Atticus Finch

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

These people are rooting for the pandemic. Anything for their own personal, political gain. More dead Americans means more roadkill for them. And while they are at it, why not gin up some riots. After all, these are the very same people who think nothing of stoking racial discord for their own benefit. Loot some stores, firebomb some police stations and terrorize people in their homes. Just more dead people for them to pick through! Anyone hoping Mr. Biden — once he is done picking through the carcasses of the cratered economy and pandemic — might stand up for the rule of law would be hopelessly mistaken.

Assault on America, Day 551: What’s Joe doing down there in the basement? We want to know

With the presidential nominee hardly ever seen these days one can only imagine what’s going on behind closed doors in the Biden basement. Be it the renaming of Washington DC or strategizing on how best to keep their man boxed-in for another four months, Democrats will eventually have to face real campaign vetting. Their day of reckoning is coming.

De Blasio’s performance grows worse by the day, making NYC unlivable

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

New York has had its share of corrupt and incompetent mayors, but never has it had both of those and also a lazy bum. These are extraordinary times and there is a real risk de Blasio is digging the city’s grave. With mobs assaulting the foundations of our republic and terrifying otherwise-sensible people into silence or assent, the police are declared Public Enemy No. 1 — and de Blasio joins the Amen corner. He no longer defends the NYPD, and one by one, the anti-crime programs that made New York miraculously safe are being thrown out with the trash. The collapse is happening under the worst mayor ever.

Assault on America, Day 547: Founding Fathers vs. Marxist #BlackLivesMatter, a comparison

In normal times, Independence Day was something all Americans would honor if not celebrate. But as has been demonstrated a lot recently, there are many in this country who seek to trash and remove the past. We can’t allow them. The proponents of Black Lives Matter are nothing like the Founding Fathers. Now more than ever, we recognize it.

Assault on America, Day 546: To Democrats, police reform is all about grift and naked politics

Even if times are changing, Democrats in Congress don’t seem to alter their approaches any. If there’s a way to clog up the system with additional bureaucracy and litigation, they’ll find it. The liberal party rejected Senator Tim Scott’s police reform bill purely due to political reasons -- and because the South Carolinian is an African-American Republican. Shameful.

Attorney General Bill Barr Strikes Antifa And BLM Revolutionaries

“The ultimate goal of the task force will be not only to enable prosecutions of extremists who engage in violence, but to understand these groups well enough that we can stop such violence before it occurs and ultimately eliminate it as a threat to public safety and the rule of law,” Attorney General Bill Barr wrote in a recent memo to to all the Justice Department’s law enforcement components and U.S. attorneys.

Assault on America, Day 545: No retreating on reopening the economy despite COVID-19 spike

News of a dramatic increase in COVID-19 cases last week was seemingly greeted with relief by elements of the media. If true, the naysayers argue, the economy can’t be reopened, people will still be out of work and government will need to act -- again -- to take care of the unemployed. Then there’s the alternative, which is full speed ahead. Which way should we go?

Trump Calls For Tougher Republican Response To ‘Political War’

Ben Domench, The Federalist

In a wide-ranging interview, President Donald J. Trump said that the country is in the midst of “a political war … where the left will use anything to win, including the culture.” The president said that to restore order and win in 2020, his Republican allies “need to be stronger” in standing up to rioters and those who would tear down statues. “They’ve got to get much tougher,” Trump said, drawing comparisons to moments when Republicans stood together on impeachment and in battles over judicial nominees. “They have to be stronger, have to come together,” or risk losing politically and worse.

Assault on America, Day 544: Yes, Obama, we cling to guns, religion and conservative media

Having Democrats blaming conservative media figures for the way things are in the U.S. today isn’t new. Bill Clinton all-but pinned 1995’s Oklahoma City bombing on his conservative critics. Then Hillary coined it “The vast rightwing conspiracy.” President Trump is no fan of the “fake news” media either. The battle for the news narrative will continue.

Black Lives Matter: The Terrorist Funders And Founders

Our friends at Capitol Research have just released a must-read research article, “A Terrorist’s Ties to a Leading Black Lives Matter Group” showing that at least one board member of Thousand Currents—the group fiscally sponsoring the most organized part of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, who have been involved in most of the current unrest— is Susan Rosenberg, a convicted terrorist who tried the same thing almost 40 years ago during Ronald Reagan’s reelection campaign, and it landed her in federal prison for 16 years.

Assault on America, Day 541: ‘Preacher’ Trump should take a page from 2016, pack substance

President Trump is one of the most talented politicians of the modern age, yet even he could stand to alter his approach to politics from time to time. Elections are always about the future and at his next rally, Trump would do well to talk a lot more about what he intends to do in his second term, something that would reassure more than his already dedicated fans.

Must See Sen. Tom Cotton Video: Biden Will Bring Anarchy To Your Hometown

Senator Tom Cotton is right, Joe Biden is too liberal and too confused to lead, and if we allow Joe Biden to be elected President, anarchy will be coming to our towns and cities. We urge CHQ readers and friends to watch the ad through this link to YouTube and then help make it go viral by sending the link to your family, friends, neighbors, fellow parishioners, civic club members and other contacts.

Assault on America, Day 540: Crime up in cities, but who to blame? Depends on who you ask

The 2020 election is destined to be one heck of a nasty fight. Who will get the blame for the rancor? Hint: His name starts with Donald and his last name rhymes with “bump.” And it’s not because he’s mean or racist or was a celebrity and regular presence in the tabloids. It’s because Trump represents a complete departure from the status quo. To the elites, that’s bad.
