Assault on America, Day 48: Critics pounce but Trump did the right thing on national emergency

Politics is a nasty business, especially when elements of both sides care more about pleasing their powers-that-be than satisfying the will of the citizenry. Trump represents the “forgotten” people. He made the right call on the national emergency and we can only hope he’ll keep his negotiating skills intact.

Assault on America, Day 47: Will the ruling class ever get serious about cutting spending?

If Democrats ever achieve large majorities in Congress and elect a party president the real fun begins. With their Green New Deal, Medicare for All and universal college tuition on the wish list, the sky’s the limit. All the more reason why Republicans should get their spending acts together today.

Assault on America, Day 44: 2020 Democrats to run the impossible gamut of past and present

Political campaigns are always fascinating to watch as they evolve from beginning to close. Candidates must move with the flow as new revelations and events occur to change the narrative the media presents. For Democrats in 2020, that process starts now -- and it won’t end… ever.

Assault on America, Day 43: GOP leaders’ wimp out on border wall leaves few options for Trump

Short on options, it’s said Trump will sign the bad deal sent him by his party leaders on Capitol Hill. If the president hopes to get a barrier constructed, he’ll need to do so by other means. It just goes to show, once again, the GOP leadership simply can’t be trusted. Don’t go there anymore.

Assault on America, Day 42: Who gave the media sanction to bash on Trump’s ‘Executive Time’?

The establishment news media’s worked overtime to portray Trump in every possible negative light and now they’re trashing his schedule because it contains too little priority for meetings and other official functions. Where journalists are concerned, if it weren’t for bad news there’d be no news at all.

The Democrats’ Real Motivation For Opposing The Wall

We already know that the Obama administration abused the existing FISA protections and undertook surveillance of Sharyl Attkisson and many of President Trump’s political associates, and maybe even then-candidate Donald Trump as well. How long will it take before the Democrats’ surveillance regime moves beyond the border zone to encompass the entire country?

Assault on America, Day 41: Do Dem leaders love fanatics enough to sacrifice everything?

Politics doesn’t need to be as complicated as today’s Republicans and Democrats make it out to be. The representative republic our constitution lays out should function to do the will of the people. President Trump is trying to do his part… will Democrat leaders stop the obstruction?

Assault on America, Day 40: Look out! AOC and the Green New Deal socialists are coming!

The Founding Fathers never envisioned a government so powerful so as to control every aspect of citizens’ lives, but that’s what’s in store if the new breed of Democrat socialists succeed in enacting a “Green New Deal” someday. Their mindset is not only dangerous, it’s proliferating.

Assault on America, Day 37: Every four years people talk 3rd party… will it happen this time?

It doesn’t take placing an ear to the ground to claim Trump’s potentially vulnerable (especially if the wall isn’t built) and there’s something amiss down below. It’s premature to view Howard Schultz as a true challenger to the two parties, but it wouldn’t be a stretch to see him try.

Assault on America, Day 36: Dems’ abhorrent SOTU manners cast Trump in presidential light

Democrats exposed a window into their souls the other night, unable or unwilling to greet President Trump’s pro-American message and calls for unity with anything other than skulks and sneers. Americans hoping for political progress won’t take the Democrats’ behavioral excesses lightly.

Assault on America, Day 35: Filled with purpose, Trump sets proper tone for America in SOTU

President Trump’s Tuesday speech will be picked apart and dissected for hidden meanings in the coming days but it primarily was a call for a political ceasefire so as to accomplish positive results for Americans. In doing so, Trump fulfilled his presidential purpose. Will Democrats do their part?

Assault on America, Day 34: Trump should use SOTU bully pulpit to highlight best of America

Those hoping President Trump’s State of the Union address will help end the current political stalemate between the parties will be sorely disappointed. Nothing short of complete capitulation to Democrat demands would satisfy the opposition. The future is at stake…will people wake up?

Assault on America, Day 33: The Patriots won the Super Bowl; who will triumph on the border wall?

Because the parties are so far apart on the border wall funding dilemma, there’s no easy answer in sight. Democrats won’t consider the arguments in favor of a barrier despite having recognized them in the past. The Super Bowl had a winner and loser -- will it be the same in Congress?

Assault on America, Day 30: Democrats’ nutty ideas doomed to drive Americans back to GOP

Democrats’ lack of “forgiveness” or understanding for average Americans will certainly sound their death knell at the ballot box -- and that’s especially true where the border barrier is concerned. You know how Americans feel about Democrats not achieving anything? Yeah… they’re against it.

Assault on America, Day 29: 2020 Democrats look like a parade of the expended and tired

Democrats aren’t so busy celebrating their “victory” on the border wall funding scrap with President Trump to look ahead to next year and who will try to beat him. The old and tired wing of the party has Joe Biden -- and probably Hillary Clinton… better prepare for a failure of epic proportions.

Mueller, An Odd Hero for the Lawless Left

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

During the Clinton years, we heard a lot from the left about the “criminalizing of political differences.” We don’t hear those laments anymore. Liberals used to tell us that Trump had no intention of winning in the first place and was as surprised as anyone by his victory. They champion Mueller not because he is protecting “our sovereignty,” as one Hollywood starlet recently put it, but for the simple reason that he is tormenting their political opponents.

Assault on America, Day 28: SOTU postponed but Trump will enjoy last word in standoff

It’s a shame the State of the Union address did not go on as planned but President Trump is far from ready to capitulate on border wall funding. Americans will eventually see Speaker Pelosi for the unbalanced partisan hack that she is -- and politics as usual may finally be put to rest.

On closer examination, Roger Stone indictment is less than it seems

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Stone's defense of himself in the "time in the barrel" matter, in his contacts with Guccifer 2.0, and in his lack of direct contacts with WikiLeaks all resulted in no accusations from Mueller. And, of course, the indictment did not charge that Stone knew about the WikiLeaks disclosures beforehand, or that he was involved in any conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia to influence the 2016 election, or that such a conspiracy even existed. Put it all together, and the Stone indictment adds up to less than it at first seems.

Assault on America, Day 27: Catatonic GOP leaders own the next shutdown… if there is one

Next to the inability to fund the border wall, Republican leaders’ silence is the single most disappointing aspect of the struggle to control illegal immigration. Appearances mean things -- if McConnell and McCarthy are to join the fray it’s time to fish or cut bait. Fence-sitters lose every time.

We Could All Be Roger Stone

The way we see it, Roger Stone’s only crimes are being friends with Donald Trump and using his considerable skills at manipulating the media to keep the story of Hillary Clinton’s many real crimes alive – and pissing-off Robert Mueller and his band of Democrat witch hunters in the process. We have contributed to the Roger Stone Legal Defense Fund and we hope you and other CHQ readers and friends will do likewise.
