2020 Election

Assault on America, Day 271: 2 weeks from now no one talks about Ukraine. But impeachment?

Democrats and #NeverTrumpers were searching for the right opening to get at Trump and they thought they’d found it with the Ukraine non-controversy. The actual words that were spoken don’t help their cause, no matter how much they insist it does. Let the chips fall where they may -- Democrats will lose in the end.

Conservative Bob Good To Challenge Immigration Turncoat RINO Denver Riggleman

Principled limited government constitutional conservative Bob Good, who currently sits in the Campbell County Board of Supervisors and serves as the senior associate athletics director at Liberty University is preparing to officially enter the race to represent Virginia's 5th Congressional District, thereby challenging incumbent immigration turncoat RINO Rep. Denver Riggleman.

Assault on America, Day 268: 'Pocahontas' Liz must come clean on her all-inclusive tax scheme

Time will tell whether Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren has the political skills and practical wherewithal to explain her proposals in a manner that voters identify with, and whether she’ll overcome Joe Biden’s electability argument. Democrat primary participants will decide. Do they know best?

What Conservatives Are Saying About Impeachment

We're with our friend Mark Levin: What a stupid, baseless, phony scandal the Democrats, Nevertrumpers & media are trying to promote. Endless conga line of Democrats and the like crying crocodile tears while covering up for the crooked Biden family. It won’t work.

Assault on America, Day 267: Greta Thunberg is a Hogg-clone for opportunistic greenie wackos

Greta Thunberg is well-known because somebody, somewhere decided to make hers the face of the leftist globalist climate change agenda. Politicians like Bernie Sanders are using the teen to further their own missions as well, proving there isn’t much shame to go ‘round in the Democrat party today.

Assault on America, Day 266: Three (or more) reasons why Kamala Harris won’t be president

With a little over four months to go until Democrats caucus in Iowa, much could potentially change in the intervening time. One thing that’s unlikely to improve for Kamala Harris, however, is her ability to fit in with a large enough segment of voters to make a difference when the race tightens.

Establishment Political News Influence Nosediving

The establishment media's efforts to destroy Trump are having the opposite effect – the media’s credibility is being destroyed, Sleepy Joe Biden is falling fast to Elizabeth Warren and, according to Rasmussen’s daily tracking poll 52 percent of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance.

Assault on America, Day 265: If the Founding Fathers didn’t always agree, why should we?

Both liberal Democrats and conservative Republicans suffer from the same type of political malady -- the lack of a party grassroots that agrees on everything. The American system isn’t built to satisfy everyone. The best anyone can do is rely on principle and hope the rest falls in line naturally.

Why Trump Will Trounce Biden or Warren

David Catron, The American Spectator

In the end, Trump is the guy the Democratic presidential nominee must face once the primary season is over. Trump and the GOP will probably raise about $2 billion during the 2020 cycle, the largest campaign war chest in the history of American politics. Nor will Trump be hesitant to carpet-bomb his opponent when the time comes. Indeed, his campaign has already started dropping its payload on Biden. If Warren overtakes Biden, she will be the next target. Neither Biden nor Warren is ready for a fight with Trump. The former doesn’t have the stamina, the latter’s support isn’t deep enough, and both are out of touch with the voters.

He'll have more flexibility after 2020 -- and he's going to need it

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

The whistleblower “intelligence official” is a bureaucrat in good standing in the Federal Leviathan. Therefore, he has as much authority as any elected representative. As for what Mr. Trump supposedly said, it is kind of hard to believe anything these people tell us anymore. See, this is what happens when you spend three years and every last shred of your credibility making up and spreading thoroughly fantastical stories about the president. Mr. Trump should fire the whole lot of them. Or, maybe wait until after he is reelected in 2020 and fire them all. You know, because he will have “more flexibility after the election.”

Assault on America, Day 264: Democrats have more to worry about than Joe Biden’s flubs

Americans aren’t fooled by Democrats and their lack of substance. Speculation over Joe Biden’s mental state will last as long as he continues to stumble every other sentence, but in the end it doesn’t matter. If he and his fellow Democrats won’t talk about jobs and the economy, they might as well all be demented.

Assault on America, Day 261: Trump knows what he’s doing on Iran. Let’s all be thankful

The president knows history and he’s seen what happens to American leaders who insist on assuming the role of the world’s policeman and food distributor. Sometimes it’s best just to stay out. Thank God Trump appears to have learned this lesson -- and he’ll hold firm against the rest.

Assault on America, Day 260: Authenticity in short supply for Democrat presidential wannabes

Close observation reveals the Democrat presidential candidates are all about the same, which is the reason why they’re having a hard time cutting into Joe Biden’s polling lead. Collectively they’re so far outside the mainstream it’s hard to relate to any of them. Authenticity is in short supply in Democrat-land these days.

Assault on America, Day 259: Donald Trump, judges, and the consequences of electing liberals

Barack Obama famously said “elections have consequences,” and for once, he was right. America and the world would be very different today if Hillary Clinton had beaten Donald Trump in 2016. #NeverTrumpers only seem to care about tone -- do they think a sweet-talking Democrat would solve things?

Assault on America, Day 258: For Trump and the GOP in 2020, it’s School Choice, stupid!

Some political issues are such obvious winners they should be in the forefront of every conservative’s campaign pitch. School choice and responsible stewardship of the environment are two subjects the GOP could use to turn heads instead of permitting the left to control the narrative. Are Republicans paying attention?

Yes, They Are Coming for Your Guns

The Editors, National Review

If it ever was, “Nobody is coming for your guns!” is no longer true — which means that a host of commonly posed inquiries now have the same simple answer. “Why do you oppose federal licensing?” Because leading Democrats are threatening confiscation. “Why do you oppose ‘universal’ background checks?” Because they would create a registry. “And why do you oppose a registry?” Because leading Democrats are threatening confiscation. Unwittingly or not, O’Rourke and his acolytes have stuck a dagger into the exquisitely calibrated gun-control messaging on which their party has worked for the better part of 20 years. No voter can now say he wasn’t warned.

Hands Off the Electoral College

Elad Vaida, The American Spectator

The latest fad on the left is the push to eliminate the Electoral College. We can’t take our stability for granted. The Electoral College, which safeguards our federalist system, plays a significant part in the United States’ durability. We are one nation, yes, but one nation in which the voices of all states are heard. Trying to rule a continent-sized country in a unitary system would lead to disaster or dictatorship. We shouldn’t risk our republic because some sore losers want to overhaul the entire political system every time they don’t get their way, like spiteful children who have lost a game of tag.

The crackers and frackers could hold the keys to 2020

Salena Zito, Washington Examiner

“On my first day as president, I will sign an executive order that puts a total moratorium on all new fossil-fuel leases for drilling offshore and on public lands. And I will ban fracking — everywhere,” Warren tweeted. The rest of the Democratic hopefuls will follow suit, with the possible exceptions of Joe Biden and Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan. Donald Trump won Pennsylvania with just over 40,000 votes in 2016. Jobs postings are everywhere touting opportunities, no matter the skill level. If you reliably turn up for work, there is likely a career for you in the oil and gas industry. Do the Democrats care?

Local GOP Committee Strikes Back – Votes To Censure RINO Congressman

In a sober, frank, open and honest discussion of Rep. Denver Riggelman's voting record the Rappahannock County Republican Committee voted to censure the freshman GOP Representative for voting to undermine President Trump’s program of "American jobs for American workers" and undermining Trump’s pledge to stay out of other countries’ civil wars and to refrain from military commitments not clearly tied to our own national security.

Assault on America, Day 257: Mark Sanford run the epitome of a #NeverTrump fool’s errand

One can’t necessarily blame Mark Sanford for challenging Trump in the 2020 GOP primaries, but it’s open to debate whether it’s a net positive or just a fool’s errand. The “conversation” regarding debt and spending needs to take place either way -- and who’s to say Sanford should lead it?
