2020 Election

Assault on America, Day 611: Joe Biden preps to hit the road, but will anyone go to listen to him?

With the campaign seemingly having started months ago, Labor Day will not mark the beginning of the presidential election season this year. Joe Biden says he’s planning to start campaigning like a normal candidate would, but there are questions on how much he can handle. Meanwhile, Trump has seized the initiative. It will be bumpy from here on out.

What If the First Woman President Is (Gasp!) a Republican?

Roger Kimball, The Epoch Times

Three conservative women have emerged as possibilities in the post-Trump era of 2024. They are South Dakota governor Kristi Noem, former South Carolina governor and U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley, and longtime congresswoman and soon-to-be senior senator from Tennessee Marsha Blackburn. All three women were among those politicians selected to speak at the RNC. Noem and Blackburn are most definitely card-carrying members of the dominant Trump wing of the Republican party, Haley intermittently so, although she did not display her ambivalence at the convention.

Biden tries to blame Trump for Democrat-run cities’ unrest

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Now we can, according to Biden, add Antifa, BLM and other anarchists to the list of Trump’s victims. Apparently the rioters, arsonists and criminals were all good little boys and girls in the pre-Trump era and their assault against America just demonstrates that they, too, are casualties of the president’s toxic being. The idea is so fatuous, so idiotic that it only adds to the concerns about Biden’s well-being. On top of everything else, he too seems to be suffering from a serious case of Trump Derangement Syndrome. Even a mask can’t help him with that.

Trump and Truman Were in Similar Boats

Stephen Moore, CNS News

Truman used to say: "I didn't give them hell. I just told the truth, and they thought it was hell." Trump's special challenge is that, unlike Truman, he isn't just up against a corrupt East Coast elite core of deep-state, deep-pocketed lobbyists and the wealthy social snobs who view Middle America as flyover country. He also must combat the bleed-blue media. Given how unpopular the media is today, he can even turn the bias and blinding hatred at places such as CNN from a liability into an asset by again running against the fake news industrial complex.

Why Catholics Should Not Vote For Fake Catholic Joe Biden

Joe Biden’s advocacy of abortion, same-sex “marriage” and transgenderism put him in direct conflict, not with some ephemeral policies of church administration, but with the fundamental precepts of Catholicism that make a Catholic a Catholic. As Cardinal Burke said, Joe Biden is “not in communion with Christ,” or his church. Catholics should not be persuaded to vote for Joe Biden in the false belief that he is a faithful Catholic.

Portland’s Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler Is A Worm

For the better part of four years, rather than protect the citizens of the city he was elected to administer, Portland's Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler has hamstrung the police and done his best to prohibit any law enforcement activity in the city center and downtown parks. Even after years of coddling left-wing extremists, Wheeler could control Portland’s streets if he had the will, but because he is a spineless worm the riots and revolution in Portland will continue. It's time to federalize the fight for law and order in Portland.

Assault on America, Day 610: What would a Joe Biden conversation on race and riots sound like?

Biden was trapped between a rock and a hard place. He couldn’t condemn the violence and looting without infringing on the territory of his own voters. And he couldn’t not speak out… because he was being undermined by his lack of action. Is it considered “racist” to take a side? Democrats are backed in a corner on this one and there’s no way to go but down.

Silence About the Violence

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

The diminished but more venomous Antifa and BLMA remnants will try to up the ante and torch, loot, shoot, maim, and wreck all the way to the suburbs. Democrat Joe Biden will wage a half-campaign and issue serial half-lamentations about the violence, because he has become a half-candidate. He still has no real idea whether the violence helps or hurts him, whether it is good or bad for the country, or whether his left-wing base is a bit too much at times or dangerous. So, like all half-things, he splits the difference and ends up saying half of nothing.

Joe Biden's America being burned down ... by Joe Biden's supporters

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Is this Joe Biden’s America? Or Donald Trump’s America? Even the unhinged, wacko media doesn’t try to claim that Trump supporters are firebombing police stations and assaulting innocent citizens. And now — finally — Joe Biden emerges from underneath his campaign rock to deliver a speech. You would think that no matter how dumb a guy is, he might learn at least something during a 49-year career as a politician in Washington. But not Joe Biden. “Do I look like a radical socialist with a soft spot for rioters?” he asked Monday. “Really?” I don’t know, Joe. Do you?

Women Always Have To Pick Up The Check For Democrats

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

The Democrats never say “Women’s lives matter?” It’s because the evidence is clear that to Democrats, women’s lives don’t matter. At least not as much as Democrat power and pleasure does. A world without cops and without guns is a world where women are beaten, broken and abused. But that’s the world the Democrats seek. Once again, women get to pay the price for the Democrats getting what they want. Maybe women should consider getting out of their abusive relationship with the party of misogyny. Dems will happily keep sticking you with the check.

Trump and dropping poll numbers force Hidin' Biden to do this

Liz Peek, Fox News

Drooping polls are not only booting him from his basement, but they have also reportedly forced from Biden recent statements mildly condemning the riots and violence that have shaken so many Democrat-led cities. CNN’s Don Lemon pleaded on air for the former VP to take a stand, noting that polling and “focus groups” indicated he needed to speak out. People are dying in the riots, thousands of businesses have been ruined, hundreds of cops have been injured. Americans should ask, how can Joe Biden keep us safe if he won’t even speak out against rioters?

Bannon Case May Rest With Stockman Petition

The key similarities between the Bannon and Stockman cases lie in the First Amendment protections of soliciting donations. Let’s be clear, the First Amendment does not protect fraud. But the Supreme Court has repeatedly recognized that fundraising communications can be valuable forms of speech about causes. And, the right to associate with causes, including controversial and politically important ones, needs protection.

Cherry-picking COVID stats

Instead of honest and unbiased reporting, the mainstream media has twisted and distorted the numbers to scare the public into believing that their lives are at risk every time they leave their homes to shop, to go to work, or to exercise and that President Donald Trump is responsible for the more than 5 million reported cases of COVID-19 and the 175,000 deaths that have been attributed to it.

Assault on America, Day 609: Post-convention polls don’t match experience and common sense

With two months to go until Election Day, the mainstream establishment media will continue relying on polls showing Joe Biden comfortably ahead to paint a portrait of the horserace that doesn’t match common experience. Trump backers are even more in his corner than they were in 2016, and who really feels strongly about voting for Joe Biden?

Can Trump Win Minnesota?

Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

Biden’s attempt to shift his stance on BLM may prove to be too little, too late to rescue his campaign in Minnesota. It is a state that has long prided itself on racial equality. No one who knows much about Minnesotans could imagine that they would tolerate “systemic racism.” By endorsing the BLM “unrest” that wrecked Minneapolis, however, Democrats and the media have in effect accused Minnesotans of complicity in depriving black people of their civil rights. If Biden loses Minnesota, it could prove the bellwether of a landslide victory for Trump.

Cultural Suicide Is Painless

Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness

Wall Street may run the world, but it certainly does not run the NYC government. Electronic capital really does still have human legs and when the proverbial suited investor thinks he will be infected, short of toilet paper, or assaulted on the street, he leaves, taking his laptop with him. The story of all Dark Ages is that when civilizations finally prefer suicide, they do it easily, and the remnants flock to the countryside to preserve what they can—allowing the cities to go on with their ritual self-destruction.  So it has begun to seem this endless summer.

Why Democrats and their liberal media minions are running scared

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

What the media won’t say is as revealing as what they do say. It was policing —broken-windows policing— that turned the murder tide, first in NYC under Rudy Giuliani and then nationally. But to mention that history, the Times and AP would have to acknowledge that handcuffing the cops in recent years — a policy they both support relentlessly — is contributing to the comeback of violence. So instead, they push the heartless idea that it could be worse and that Trump is wrong to make a big deal out of it. The left cares only about defeating Trump.

Trump speech, convention sets the stage for this in November

Newt Gingrich, Fox News

With the White House as the backdrop, the president outlined his achievements, values and hope for the future. He also drew a sharp contrast with Biden. The choices have been made clear by the Democratic and Republican conventions. As someone who said throughout 2016 that Donald Trump would win, I am confident after these two weeks that if everyone who is for him turns out to vote, President Trump will win by an amazing margin. At the same time, the GOP will win Congress. These two weeks sealed the deal, and now it will be played out in the campaign.

Nationalize the Election: Brand Democrats as “radical, dangerous, mean-spirited, and violence-prone”

The mainstream media has openly joined the radical New Democrats and most Republican politicians are silent and AWOL in the fight to save America from the mean, evil, violent, Marxist Democrat dictators. That means if America is to be saved, you and others who love America need to fill the leadership vacuum, bypassing the biased media and acting as Conservative Paul Revere Riders to help to inform and educate your family, friends, neighbors, and others.

Help Save America Be An Election Day Poll Watcher Or Poll Worker

Conservatives are needed to work at the polls this year, especially as poll watchers. Amid COVID-19, America is facing a critical shortage of poll workers. Even as many states expand access to vote-by-mail and absentee voting options, millions of Americans will continue to rely on in-person voting to cast a ballot. In 2012, the Obama-Biden campaign bragged about sending 18,000 lawyers to watch the polls, conservatives must be prepared to do the same.
