2020 Election

Joe Biden is Barack Obama without the fake Greek columns

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

For nearly five decades, Mr. Biden has been one of the great masters of Washington. Yet he is a blubbering disaster unfit for the national stage during a crisis. Unfit, really, for any stage during any time. He is Barack Obama — minus the fake Greek columns. Since the dawn of the Trump Dynasty, Democrats have manufactured ridiculous crisis after ridiculous crisis. Russian hookers peeing on a bed in a Moscow hotel room. Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh a serial gang rapist. Ukraine Kabuki impeachment. These people are fundamentally unserious. Totally untrustworthy. Genetically anti-American. Nothing reveals their unseriousness like an actual, true crisis.

Assault on America, Day 453: Joe Biden’s China syndrome will sink his shaky presidential hopes

There’s lots to complain about China in these difficult times, and as Mark Twain famously said about the weather, no one was doing anything about it. That all changed when Donald Trump ran for and won the presidency, and he’ll continue to hold Chinese leaders accountable for their complicity in the coronavirus pandemic.

Assault on America, Day 450: In COVID-19’s wake, fiscal sanity is demanded, not requested

States have the leeway to set their own guidelines on dealing with the coronavirus conundrum. Sooner or later the nation’s economic health must be given its due consideration, largely because Congress can’t keep assembling multi-trillion-dollar aid packages. The future has arrived and we can’t afford to dismiss it.

Assault on America, Day 449: Arrogant Dems ignored the ‘duty to rescue’ at their own peril

There is a duty to aid citizens when circumstances place them in positions they can’t control and they’ll suffer grave harm if actions aren’t done quickly to rescue them. In most cases help is a common sense call, something Democrats are either too arrogant -- or too selfish -- to understand. Americans are watching closely.

Of time and the Biden

Noemie Emery, Washington Examiner

Biden and aides have closed all their offices and are working from home. Worse still, the great sudden shift in focus and in concentration that occurred in the wake of the crash and the virus has also shattered Biden's stated reason for running. He was supposed to be the sane, civil person, running against a man who at many times seemed to be neither, who broke norms and commandments with gleeful abandon, and whom nothing and no one could shame. Then came the plague, something bigger than Trump. Biden would now have to be not only nicer than Trump, but also more capable of seeming in control without melting down amidst a crisis. Of this there has never been any proof.

Assault on America, Day 448: Has coronavirus forever altered Trump’s approach to politics?

Time and circumstances will reveal whether President Trump’s new, more restrained public persona lasts throughout the coming presidential campaign. Through necessity, politics has been placed on hold until the coronavirus runs its due course, which leaves a lot of folks wondering if we might’ve seen the last of the “old” Trump.

Biden slow to explain why he'd be quicker than Trump in tackling virus

Byron York, Washington Examiner

So what has the man who wants to be the next president, now confident of his path to his party's nomination, done? Not a lot. Biden is "largely out of sight hunkered down in Delaware," the New York Times reported. Biden did give a speech on March 12 to explain what he would do as president to confront the virus. But his plan was not much different from what the Trump administration has already been doing. And why did Biden let so much time pass without offering a comprehensive proposal for dealing with the crisis? Especially since his main criticism of Trump is that the president has not acted swiftly enough? In short, Biden has been slow to explain.

Assault on America, Day 447: Don’t let elites use coronavirus as the means to ruin America

There is no simple solution to the dilemma of who should be helped first in the battle against COVID-19. Many need aid and there’s only so much to go around. We should resist the ruling class’s drive to deprive us of our liberties, while being especially vigilant to preserve what made America great in the first place.

Assault on America, Day 446: Three factors that will determine the winner of the 2020 election

The coronavirus panic has forced America into uncharted waters and no one can say for sure where we’re headed. One thing for certain is the crisis will end and people will go on with their lives, perhaps with a new perspective. This year’s election is a long way away, with lots still to talk and argue about.

Assault on America, Day 443: Bernie will never be POTUS and neither will dopey Joe Biden

My grandfather was (almost) right that there are no sure things in life, but we know for certain Bernie Sanders won’t be president -- and that Joe Biden will struggle to maintain a viable public presence headed into the fall campaign. With COVID-19 raging for the near term, all bets are off. Who could be more sure of anything?

Assault on America, Day 442: COVID-19 vaults illegal immigration to the top of 2020 debate

With the Democrats’ primary race ending and the presidential election approaching, Americans will now begin focusing less on personalities and electability and more on the candidates’ issue positions. Joe Biden won’t win many converts by promising to go easy on illegal aliens and vastly curtailing energy exploration. It just makes Trump’s job easier.

Assault on America, Day 441: COVID-19 + pols + media = taxpayers on the dole for $850 billion

We could not have foreseen what’s happened with the coronavirus up to this point and there’s no way to predict where events will go from here. The media pressured the political class into reacting/overreacting to a serious threat and now we’re preparing to dump hundreds of billions into it. What holds the future?

Assault on America, Day 440: Seeking a slight glimpse of future hope among coronavirus doom

There aren’t many moments where we receive an opportunity to glimpse the future, but the coronavirus pandemic appears to be one of them. Whether we’re ever able to “go back” is another question entirely. There’s no stuffing the genie back in the bottle on this one -- and we’ll need to live with the consequences when things die down.

Assault on America, Day 439: Anticlimactic Joe & Bernie debate show draws an audience of zero

For better or worse, the Democrat race is over… and again, this was likely the final 2020 candidates’ debate. In this sense, the American public was the “winner.” The next time we see Joe Biden on the debate stage, he’ll be opposite President Donald Trump. Anyone (besides the media) think Biden will come across as the better man then?

Dems Overestimate Biden’s Success

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Joe Biden's success has less to do with his qualities than those of his opponents. He beat an exceedingly weak field. Even liberals argue Biden won by default. Biden has taken to referring to himself as a “bridge,” as if his geriatric candidacy was little more than a stopgap measure for a party bereft of leadership. But Biden does have at least one advantage over the party’s last candidate, Hillary Clinton. He is not nearly as reviled as she was. Then again, he won’t be facing a rookie candidate in Donald Trump but rather an incumbent president with a record of demonstrable successes. Democrats who are reading too much into Biden’s comeback against an inept field may be in for a rude shock.

Joe Biden’s Bizarre Outburst Is Everything That Is Wrong With The Democrat Party

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

We understand the rules that apply to us don’t apply to moronic mandarins like Gropey Joe or to their relatives like Hunter, the Snortunate Son. And that’s how the Democrat establishment wants it. Or, rather, that’s what it wants to return to. By rallying around the tattered banner of Joe Biden, Democrats forfeited the chance to offer the candidate of change. Rather, they seek to offer the candidate of change back, back to the ineptly managed national decline of the Obama years. If Joe Biden wins, he will not serve – he will be out in the Rose Garden frying bugs with a magnifying glass while a brainless trust of Obama retreads gets to work transforming all of America into Scat Francisco.

Assault on America, Day 436: Questions debate moderators should ask Bernie & Joe on Sunday

With the Democrat presidential race all-but over, Sunday’s “debate” is bound to feel anti-climactic and like a waste of time. Perhaps the only yet to be determined matter is whether Biden can keep his wits together for two hours -- and whether Bernie finally takes off the gloves regarding Joe’s massive corruption deficit.

Democrats Are Nominating Chance the Gardener From ‘Being There’ for President

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

Something cruel, even sadistic, emanates from the nomination of someone either over or on the edge of senility. Considering how Joe is now, think how he will be in two or three years in the midst of his presidency. The potential for public humiliation is high, as is the necessity to surround him with “advisors” to prop him up. But that may be the point. A particularly mediocre group of candidates failed, but will get a second chance. There’s no “there” in “Being There” and someone—Booker, Harris, Klobuchar, Buttigieg, any of a number of people—will be calling the shots in reality from behind the scenes. Forget Truman’s famous “The buck stops here.” It would be “The buck stops where?”

'Do you want more influence?' Kevin Gentry’s interview of Richard Viguerie (Part 4 of 7)

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
These tips will help those involved with a conservative nonprofit, as well as those who want to help the cause of liberty/freedom by their regular use of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube, blogs, etc.  By so doing you will help re-elect President Trump, help take back the House, and help increase our numbers in the Senate.

Assault on America, Day 435: Coronavirus will neither help nor hinder Trump’s reelection drive

Coronavirus is a serious matter and President Trump is giving it its due consideration. Life must go on and Trump’s reaction to the fears of normal people is in line with what any leader should do. If the president went around acting scared, it would only make things worse. Be thankful for competent political leadership at times like these.
