2020 Election

Now Is The Time To Win The War With Iran

Demonstrators have taken to the streets calling for Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to step down and for those responsible for shooting down the Ukrainian jetliner killing all 176 aboard prosecuted. The weakness of Iran’s system of Wilayat al-Faqih has never been more obvious and the opportunity to undermine it from within rarely greater.

Assault on America, Day 376: Impeachment sham the type of DC circus no one finds gratifying

There’s little doubting many Democrats now realize that impeachment has turned into a hopeless fiasco without any clear chance at redemption. With each moment that goes by Speaker Nancy Pelosi digs the hole a little deeper, a mistake voters aren’t likely to forget as the calendar moves towards election day.

Handicapping The Democrat Losers

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

The race is Trump’s to lose. Between a sprinting economy and a staggering Democrat field, he’s the odds-on favorite in the general. But the real election issue is not going to be his past achievements. Trump’s achievements are now baked into the pie – those who dig him assume them and those who hate him don’t care how good he’s doing. They want him gone even if he takes the economy and America’s newfound standing in the world as Earth’s Rebel Badboy with him. The smart money is on the dumb bunny, Wandering Paws Joe. And Trump will annihilate him – all the cover the garbage media has provided him will only serve to keep him weak and vulnerable for when Trump lays into him.

Conservatives Split On War Powers

We are inclined to agree that raising the war powers issue at this time gives aid and comfort to the enemy – but the enemy in question is not Iran, it is the Democrats who want only to make points with their Trump-hating base and render President Trump impotent in the face of Iranian threats and aggression.

Assault on America, Day 373: Many signs point to disgraced early exit for ‘Pocahontas’ Warren

Successful presidential candidates must endure and survive the most thorough vetting of any job on earth. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren didn’t figure to be the sturdiest of candidates -- she can’t even get her background straight -- and the process exposed her as a wavering fraud. Will she exit after Iowa and New Hampshire?

By Pandering To The Left, Democrats Are Repeating The Mistakes Of 2016

John Daniel Davidson, The Federalist

The lesson of 2016, then, is that if you’re running for the Democratic nomination in 2020 and Trump takes out a major terrorist, just say it’s a good thing but look, Trump doesn’t have a broader strategy to deal with Iran, or he isn’t consistent on foreign policy, or it’s not that big of a deal compared to his impeachment—say anything, just don’t hem and haw and downplay what a bad guy Suleimani was because you want to score political points with the radical left wing of your party. Sanders has much in common with Trump, whose appeal in 2016 was largely based on the fact that he wasn’t a politician, couldn’t be bought by special interests, and had been saying the same things for years.

Sorry Democrats, There Is A Trump Doctrine, And It’s A Good One

Despite what the Democrats and their media allies want Americans to believe about President Trump and his foreign policy, Trump has been remarkably consistent in his approach to rogue states, such as North Korea and Iran. And the Trump doctrine makes a lot more sense than sending them pallets of cash or refusing to engage with them and pretending they are not there.

Assault on America, Day 372: Is Biden right? Is Trump really damaging the ‘soul’ of America?

As long as President Trump succeeds in making inroads for the GOP with Democrat base constituencies, candidates like Joe Biden will continue accusing him of robbing the “soul” of the country. Politics is a dirty business -- and Trump has an extremely thick skin -- but Democrats should mind the tone of their charges.

Could The Confrontation With Iran Go Nuclear?

The most important thing to come out in the post-Soleimani statements from the White House was this comment from National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien: "I think the President made it very clear that Iran will not have a nuclear weapon and I think we have got a lot of friends and allies both in the region and in Europe who are committed to that outcome.”

Guest Column: KIll The USMCA Before It Is Too Late

Rich Loudenback says we have almost no time left to wake up Senators and especially President Trump to the defects in the USMCA. If we could only find one person who has his ear to open his eyes to all the dangers in the USMCA perhaps things could be turned around.  In the meantime, Mr. Loudenback says read the agreement and then call your Senators and the White House and tell them to kill it before it is too late.

Assault on America, Day 371: Trump to Congress: Read My Tweets; Dems don’t get it

No one disputes we’re living in interesting times. President Trump isn’t your prototypical president and today’s Democrats aren’t a conventional opposition. Trump was correct to suggest Democrats consult his Twitter feed for up-to-the-moment policy -- it’s one less source to subpoena and impeach.

The Democrats’ Nakedly Craven And Unserious Impeachment

Note to angry Democrats: Donald Trump is still your President. And he will remain your President unless the Senate convicts him in a trial – and the only way that has any possibility of happening is if the House transmits to the Senate the article of impeachment it passed.

Don’t Vote Libertarian And Elect A Democrat President

In this crucial 2020 election, when President Trump is up for re-election and control of the House and Senate hang in the balance, we urge our libertarian-leaning friends not to waste their votes on third-party Libertarian candidates, such as Lincoln Chafee, who have no prayer of winning, but could pull enough votes from Trump and Republican congressional candidates to give Democrats control of the government.

Assault on America, Day 370: If eliminating an enemy is bad, what do Democrats think is good?

It’s not always a good thing when political opponents take opposite sides of an issue, such as last week’s drone strike that killed an Iranian general. In times of war, serious matters should engender national unity and at least earn a nod towards a president’s important decisions. Partisans need to be on the same page.

How Tucker And Rand Got It Wrong On Killing Soleimani

As we have explained on numerous occasions Iran has declared war on America and the West, so whether we wish it, or not, we are in a war with the Islamic Republic, and whether we wish it, or not, one of the principle battlefields in that war is Iraq, where, until President Trump took him out, Qasem Soleimani was directing operations against us with impunity.

Biden Wrong On Foreign Policy And Lying About It (Again)

As former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates once said, Joe Biden has been "wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades." Now Biden is lying and trying to rewrite history to cover up those miscalculations and failures in judgement. Here are six recent lies about foreign policy from Joe Biden.

Assault on America, Day 369: Perspective, New Year’s resolutions and honoring good news

Political forecasters will continue seeing dark clouds on the 2020 horizon regardless of the positive outcomes among the citizenry. No one expects Trump or his adversaries to roll over and play dead. But at times like these, perspective is in order -- and that includes Trump’s critics and the insatiable media.

2020 predictions: Growing economy, draining the swamp and a Trump win

Scott Walker, Washington Times

In 2020, the president will declare war on Congress by signing executive orders requiring members of Congress, their families and staff to live with Obamacare (eliminating the exemptions given by former President Barack Obama). He will also attempt to invoke term limits for all members of Congress through executive action. 2020 will be a great year. Solid growth in the overall economy with the positive job and wage gains will lead to electoral success for the president and his allies in 2020. A small group of battleground states — Arizona, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin — will be the key to the 2020 re-election. The president will carry at least six of those eight states.

Bernie Sanders Is Miseducating Our Youth

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

Bernie too shall pass. What won’t is what has happened to our educational system. Besides this credulous and unsophisticated advocacy for socialism, it is being dumbed down at every turn, even basic math being accused of being a product of white privilege. One of the great challenges for a second Trump administration will be to unwind this trend. So far not nearly enough has been done. The administration has the power of the purse since nearly every college and university has made itself dependent on federal aid (Hillsdale College an honorable exception). The administration should withhold funds until our schools stop being near-indoctrination camps. It should be up to the people how they should be educated.

2020 Election: Will It Be Disruptor Trump vs. Disruptor Bernie?

Politicians like Joe Biden and Mitt Romney haven’t figured out the American people are hungry for change, and if Republicans won’t join President Trump in delivering it from the Right, then there are plenty of radical Democrats prepared to join Bernie Sanders to deliver it from the Left.
