2020 Election

Assault on America, Day 156: Trump bashers’ conduct defies apples to oranges comparison

It’s extremely hard to compare today’s political predicament to those of the past because there’s never been a president quite like Donald Trump and Democrats of today are a breed apart from their predecessors. Impeachment will happen -- or it won’t -- and life will stay putrid and stagnant in the DC swamp.

Assault on America, Day 155: Thank God our fighting men had big guns on D-Day, 1944

Liberals aren’t interested in a “national conversation” on guns. They only want to confiscate them while scoffing at the argument that the Second Amendment guarantees your right to protect yourself. Blame the gun -- it’s the liberal thing to do. It makes liberals feel useful and the gullible and uninformed actually follow along. Nonsense.

Assault on America, Day 154: 2020 confirmation battle would make Brett Kavanaugh’s look tame

Few issues would engender more interest and energy than a Supreme Court vacancy during next year’s presidential campaign. Should one occur, the public battle would certainly make history. Mitch McConnell was correct to say he’d move forward with confirmation hearings… but would the nation survive?

Assault on America, Day 153: Since when does equality mean some are more equal than others?

Perhaps we’re fortunate prominent liberals like Taylor Swift keep highlighting the absurdity of their causes. The “Equality Act” is the most egregious recent example of a politically correct mindset gone bad. Those who truly stand up for “equality” will remember what the word actually means. Why is there no middle ground?

Assault on America, Day 152: What would happen if liberals boycotted every pro-life state?

Pro-life state legislatures should be commended for pushing the envelope on the human rights issue. As liberal challenges to abortion restriction laws mount, the Supreme Court will decide. Here’s thinking Hollywood actors’ and producers’ absurd boycotts won’t accomplish a thing.

Assault on America, Day 149: Distraught Dems out of options as impeachment dreams dwindle

Democrats’ dreams of impeachment aren’t helping to win anyone over. Robert Mueller’s pathetic impromptu press conference this week didn’t reveal anything new, either, and time’s running out for Trump’s enemies to make something stick. Sooner or later voters will pay attention… what will they see?

Assault on America, Day 148: Grandstanding Dems should personally embrace illegal aliens

The American elites are completely out-of-touch on most things but never more so than with illegal immigration. Those holed-up in ivory towers show little concern or compassion for folks who must live with the epidemic of issues aliens bring with them. Perhaps it’s time the snobs embraced the problem on a personal level. Would they learn?

Assault on America, Day 147: What does Beto -- or any Democrat -- know about farming & trade?

Up until recently the 2020 Democrat presidential race featured a bunch of candidates saying and doing everything they could to attract attention and boost name recognition. Now it’s almost time for the Trump bashers to get serious… Brace yourself for a lot of crazy stuff in the coming months.

Assault on America, Day 146: If Democrats stay in power the earth might not last 12 more years

Anyone who looks at today’s political gridlock and thinks it’s the system’s fault clearly isn’t seeing the true picture. One party wants to push through reforms as fast as they can write them and the other hopes nothing ever gets passed. Nobody wins, but the American people certainly lose... big time.

Dems Ignore the Voters on Impeachment

David Catron, The American Spectator

Democrats badly need a new narrative. Regardless of what they are hearing from politicians in safe seats, pundits who want a juicy story, and billionaires with more money than sense — impeachment is a loser for the Democrats. If they continue to obsessively attack the President they will wreck their party just as Ahab destroyed the Pequod, and Trump will survive relatively unscathed. So, if the Democrats want to lose the 2020 presidential race as well as yet another short-lived House majority, they should keep ignoring the will of the voters.

Assault on America, Day 142: Memorial Day means honoring the American flag, not dissing it

Memorial Day is a time when we silently give thanks to those who are no longer here to receive it, a day when saluting the flag and paying homage to the values our country represents is of paramount importance. America is made of inspiring stories of personal achievement -- let’s all be thankful.

Assault on America, Day 141: 2020 will be more than an election -- it’s for the soul of America

No one can accurately predict which candidates will do well in certain states next year. There are just too many variables to pin down voter attitudes this far out. The only certain thing is the 2020 election will feature a historic battle between left and right for the soul of America. Everyone ready?

Joe Biden's rumble in the jungle of empty rhetoric

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Biden will always pivot to his meaningless crusade to unify the nation by paying tribute to peace and Delaware decorum, and in the next breath decry Donald Trump, who “embraces dictators like Putin and Kim Jong-un.” He can’t do it by denigrating the Trump economy with silly and semi-cute remarks like “President Trump inherited an economy from the Obama-Biden administration that was given to him, just like he inherited everything else in his life.” Good ol’ Joe is expected to bring home the Midwestern white, male, blue-collar folk who fled to the Republicans four years ago. But white, male, blue-collared folk may not be as dumb now as good ol’ Joe thinks.

Assault on America, Day 140: College Board steps in it with adversity score algorithm scheme

“Adversity scores” will only accelerate the decline of our culture. Bad things happen when we intentionally downgrade the brightest, smartest and most intelligent to cater to those who are not as bright, not as smart, and who didn’t study and work as hard. Don’t accept the insult sitting down.

Assault on America, Day 139: Spineless wimp Mitt Romney leads DC swamp class with gusto

No one ever said American politics was full of principled leaders, and Mitt Romney is perhaps the worst jelly-spine wimp in Congress today. Romney’s turning out to be every bit as frustrating as conservatives thought he’d be -- just think what would’ve happened if he’d won in 2012.

Assault on America, Day 138: Trump trade policy won’t let China dictate how we shop, live or eat

Donald Trump meant what he said when he chose “Make America Great Again” as his campaign mantra four years ago. Decade upon decade of feckless trade policy had a big hand in causing the U.S. to slip in competitiveness around the globe. With Trump in charge, we’re seeing a drastic change for the better.

2020: The Year of the Women -- for Trump

Lauren DeBellis Appell, Real Clear Politics

When women vote, they pay attention to what a candidate is for, not who they’re against. They voted for Trump the first time because they believed, among other things, that their economic and national security had a better chance of success with him, and they were right. Women vote on substance and results, not on their emotions or vague talking points. That won’t change in 2020; they’re going to vote for the person who will keep this country going in the right direction. Women are already voting with their wallets, and if the first quarter of 2019 is any indication, President Trump has earned the confidence of women going into the 2020 election cycle.

Assault on America, Day 135: Which 2020 Democrats will join Alyssa Milano’s sex strike?

Search efforts didn’t reveal whether any of the 2020 Democrat presidential hopefuls signed on to Alyssa Milano’s call for a nationwide “sex strike” -- but they all side with the abortion-on-demand cause behind it. Just when you thought American politics couldn’t get any screwier…what will it be next week?

Assault on America, Day 134: As Bernie avoids touting socialism, 2020 Dems pick up the slack

It’s understandable how Democrat presidential candidates hope to set themselves apart from the others by dissing on President Trump, his record and his policies. But when push comes to shove they’d better provide facts to back up their claims. Bernie Sanders and cohorts aren’t making the grade.

How President Trump can break up the Democrats' fragile coalition

John Feehery, The Hill

For Republicans and President Trump, there are three things they can do to exploit divisions within the fragile Democratic coalition. First, condemn consistently and forcefully the white supremacists among them. The American dream is a universal value, and it is not just opened to the palest among us. Second, defend traditional values as the greatest gateway to economic security. The Democrats are taking us to a brave new world, untried, untested, untethered to reality. Normal Americans don’t buy it. Third, listen to the concerns of black, Hispanic and Asian Americans, value their input and ask for their votes. Don’t make the same mistakes of the progressive elite.
