Assault on America, Day 238: What do David Koch & Ruth Bader Ginsburg have in common?

The big picture surrounding a man’s life disappears whenever a conservative like David Koch passes away. Hypocritical liberals rush to bash the dead while facts reveal the dearly departed actually made numerous important contributions to humanity. Will the offensive slander never cease?

Assault on America, Day 237: Democrats and John Kasich, the candidates nobody cares about

The vast majority of presidential candidates run for ego reasons. History’s road is paved with men and women who thought they were exactly what the public was hoping for, a thirst for fame and notoriety that’s only quenched through harsh reality. 2020 features many such dreamers. Who will prevail?

Assault on America, Day 236: Media knocks Trump’s manner but America is tone-deaf

As long as Donald Trump remains president -- and probably long after he’s left the White House -- debate will continue on whether his “tone” is costing him and the GOP voter goodwill and support. Plenty of evidence shows the polls are wrong; we won’t find out for sure until Election Day 2020.

Assault on America, Day 233: Time, events and the Democrat Party have passed Obama by

No one ever said being on the political outside is easy, something former President Barack Obama is discovering. Obama lost his influence the minute he exited the Oval Office, so much so he couldn’t even convince his VP not to run and ruin his legacy. And there’s nothing he can do about it now.

Assault on America, Day 232: Trump’s trade tariffs deserve time -- and patience -- to work

Whether or not President Trump’s trade tariffs bring the world around, it was worth the effort to try and correct decades of imbalance between the U.S. and China. For far too long people merely complained about cheaters and theft -- Trump deserves credit for stepping up and doing something about it.

Assault on America, Day 231: Prepare for the ‘Office of White Supremacy’ if Dems win in 2020

Thanks to Booker and “Beto” the 2020 campaign just got that much nastier. We’re still over a year away from the fall general election contest and it promises to be the ugliest one on record. Democrats aren’t holding back anymore -- anyone who supports Trump is a “racist.” And you could end up on a watch list in the White House.

Assault on America, Day 230: Dem losers make great candidates for intra-party advancement

As long as there are elections there will be losers and a good share of them will be Democrats. Such candidates should take heart; their party not only sees them as unlucky and unfortunate, it also likely considers them good contenders for even higher offices. Stacy Abrams for VP? What a joke.

99 Conservative Leaders: Trump’s Regulatory Reform Should Reject Preemptive Vetoes

The Obama Administration took unprecedented steps to preemptively block the issuance of Section 404 permits—the Clean Water Act permits required to begin most mining and infrastructure projects—before they were even reviewed. Conservatives applaud the recent action by the Trump Administration’s EPA to undo the preemptive veto of the Pebble Mine in Southwest Alaska.

Assault on America, Day 229: Bar-B-Q, political choices and Dems -- a snapshot of life in 2019

Joaquin Castro likely did Texas based Bill Miller Bar-B-Q a favor (in the business sense) by publishing the name of its owner as a Trump backer. Texas conservatives’ response has been overwhelming -- but what does it say about our culture and society when it’s okay to potentially ruin someone’s existence over a political view? Think about it.

President Trump Needs an Ally as Intel Director

Christopher C. Hull, The Epoch Times

Trump needs someone like Hoekstra or Fleitz, who could remind the nation of a century of Russian interference, including Russia’s offer in 1968 to finance the campaign of Democrat Hubert Humphrey against Richard Nixon; Teddy Kennedy’s plea to Moscow to intervene in the 1984 elections against Ronald Reagan; and especially Hillary Clinton in 2016 paying a former foreign spy to dig up agitprop directly from Russian intelligence and then weaponize it inside the U.S. intelligence and law enforcement community. This is the president’s chance to get it right on the intelligence community in this first term. Either Fleitz or Hoekstra would do just that.

Assault on America, Day 226: If 2020 Democrat candidates were in training, they’d all be cut

With Joe Biden looking increasingly tired, careworn and unable to get his thoughts straight, Democrats have a heck of a problem. Like a football team with no one backing up an aging and failing quarterback, the party is desperately searching for another option -- and time is running out.

Assault on America, Day 225: Cultural retreat spells death for conservatives hoping to MAGA

Conservatives won’t realize cultural success until there’s a determined effort among those with a say to engage with liberals on their own turf and refuse to bow to political correctness wherever it’s found. Retreating before the battle is joined is the last thing we should do if we’re truly to Make America Great Again.

Assault on America, Day 224: Does Biden really think being a minority equates to being poor?

Nearly as predictable as the tides, Joe Biden will keep making speeches and he’ll continue saying things that cause decent people to shake their heads. Democrats must decide whether they want a presidential nominee who seems to be slipping more and more as the days go on. What will they do?

Cuccinelli: No Public Charge Immigrants

The much-needed rule, supported by key Trump administration immigration hawks, takes effect in mid-October and would reject applicants for temporary or permanent visas for failing to meet income standards or for receiving public assistance such as welfare, food stamps, public housing or Medicaid.

Assault on America, Day 223: Americans buying guns is the rational response to mass shootings

Americans aren’t stupid; they see what’s happening in the country and can be trusted to take rational approaches to complex problems -- like purchasing a firearm for personal protection. The political class always jumps to conclusions, and often times they’re the wrong ones for the wrong reasons.

Assault on America, Day 222: Two years since Charlottesville and Dems haven’t learned a thing

It’d be great to say America’s learned a lesson in the two years since the deadly riot in central Virginia, but glancing around it certainly doesn’t look that way. Liberals are still attempting to pin blame for tragedies on the political leadership in the White House. And it ain’t working.

Assault on America, Day 219: Kamala Harris shows true meaning of political ‘flash in the pan’

It takes a lot for a politician to achieve electoral viability and sustain it through a grueling campaign -- and then maintain it once in office. Democrats like Kamala Harris can only get so far on surface characteristics alone, something several candidates are yet to discover in this year’s presidential race.

Assault on America, Day 218: ‘National White Male Lobotomy Day’ coming to your town

Democrats will do anything to win, and their suggestion of a special congressional look into “white nationalism” is as ridiculous as they come. In time someone will devise a reasonable way to stave off the next irrational attack. Until that time, maybe the politicians should just stay the heck away from DC.

Assault on America, Day 217: Why today’s pols shouldn’t try to compete for every possible vote

While it’s a good thing to say you’ll compete for every vote, closer analysis indicates it just isn’t possible. In today’s political climate there’s no such thing as the lowest common denominator; it’s best to take a position and defend it to the last and not worry about the naysayers. Just ask President Trump.

Assault on America, Day 216: American culture of death, not firearms, to blame for mass murders

Something’s definitely wrong in America when individuals set off on mass murder rampages. The challenge lies with identifying a true cause and devising solutions that are both politically palatable and will actually address the problems. Blaming guns or the president is the easy way out. Can’t we talk about the culture of death instead?
