2020 Election

The Coming Implosion of the Democratic Party

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

Democrats are an association for power. But now that association is split between the establishment and the socialists, roughly 60-40. This is untenable. All that holds them together is enmity for Trump. Without that they wouldn’t even be the semblance of a party anymore. Indeed, they’re probably not, even with the pervasive Trump hatred. If Biden were to stumble, Bernie would not easily move in to replace him. The establishment would block him immediately with a new candidate. Hillary? She’s been curiously silent of late. Why isn’t she joining the claque backing Biden? And what about Obama? Are they planning something? It doesn’t matter. The party has already effectively split in two.

Democrats Are Learning The Wrong Lesson From 2016 GOP Primary

Mollie Hemingway, The Federalist

By being unable to stop a Trump candidacy, the Republican Party managed to tackle some very difficult divides between its establishment and the voters who enabled their power, including on policies that seemed to exclusively benefit corporations and the wealthy, immigration, trade deals, the U.S. relationship with China, regular entry into wars, failure to end wars, and whether to cower in the face of unfair media attacks. The result is a party that is more unified than it’s been in a while. It didn’t just survive the 2018 midterms, it gained Senate seats even as it experienced the expected House losses. Why would the lesson for Democrats be that they must stop this type of possibility?

Call Your Senators: Demand Censure Of Senate Democrat Leader Schumer

Sen. Chuck Schumer should be censured for his brazen comments that Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh would "pay the price" for decisions in abortion cases. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard number (1-866-220-0044), we urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Senators to demand that a motion to censure Sen. Schumer for his threats against Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh be introduced and voted on immediately.

Joe Biden Is No ‘Moderate’ On Immigration And Amnesty For Illegal Aliens

If Joe Biden’s radical stance on immigration is what passes for “moderate” in the Democratic Party, then they really have gone off the progressive cliff. In essence, his proposals would create an "amnesty in place," gut worksite enforcement, create a magnet for millions to enter the United States illegally and prove a boon to human traffickers and fraudulent-document vendors.

Assault on America, Day 429: Would Donald Trump really dump Mike Pence for Nikki Haley?

Just because the Democrat establishment was able to pull off a miracle and save Joe Biden’s candidacy from the political trash heap doesn’t grant them license to start giving President Trump advice – or to predict that he’s about to dump Mike Pence for Nikki Haley. Time and events are on Trump’s side – and he knows it.

Kevin Gentry Interviews CHQ Chairman Richard A. Viguerie (Part 2 of 7)

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Recently I had breakfast and follow up phone calls with my friend Kevin Gentry during which he posed this question to me: “There is a great need and opportunity now in the nonprofit world for conservatives to GO BIG – to truly make a difference in the direction of our country.  In your opinion, what is holding us back?” What follows is the second in a series of blogs Kevin has written about our conversation.

Assault on America, Day 428: Resurrected Joe Biden ain’t any better than the one left for dead

Joe Biden just ain’t that smart. And voting against Trump won’t be enough, especially since Harry Reid tipped Democrats’ (empty) hand early – all they have is racism and fear mongering going for them. That’s Hillary redux, not a winning message. Democrats very well could regret bringing Joe back from the political dead.

Conservatives Think They Have This Election Won

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Yes, Democrats are trying everything they can to derail the Trump Train. We’ve seen RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA 2.0 happen and then quickly unhappen. There’s the ridiculous attempt to blame Trump for the coronavirus, as if he went to China to make the locals slurp bat soup and lick pangolins. In a couple of months we will likely have forgotten it and moved on to new hyped-up atrocities. In the meantime, Trump will be getting us out of Afghanistan, a move the Dems will denounce because of Trump’s magical power to make liberals even stupider. The 2020 vibe is good. We shouldn’t take anything for granted. Instead, we should run up the score and send Nancy Pelosi back to Scat Francisco for good.

Key GOP Contests MSM Ignored On Super Tuesday

While Democrats battled over who is best to sell their radical agenda of amnesty for illegal aliens, gun confiscation, higher taxes, abortion up to and past the moment of birth and job-killing climate change regulations, the media largely ignored Super Tuesday’s important Republican primaries, including the GOP's Alabama Senate race and key congressional races in Texas and California.

The Myth Of Joe Biden The Moderate

The Democrats’ problem in appealing to moderates is pretty simple – try as they might to disguise their real views, none of the Democrat candidates, especially Joe Biden, are moderates. Setting aside Biden’s rapidly increasing propensity to have brain freezes and bizarre episodes of confusion out on the campaign trail, the former VP has revealed himself to be no “moderate” on issue after issue.

Assault on America, Day 427: Democrats forget Joe Biden is/was an awful (and old) candidate

With the Democrat nominating contest dwindled down to two viable contenders, the chances of party voters settling on one clear leader before their convention aren’t great. The effort to stop Bernie Sanders will continue but it’ll take something akin to a miracle to make either of them look as strong and vibrant as Trump.

Trump Opens Campaign Offices In Black Neighborhoods

Jack Kemp actually went to urban neighborhoods and framed conservative ideas to point out their benefits to citizens of all races, creeds and colors. Today, Donald Trump and his campaign are doing something the GOP hasn’t done since Jack Kemp faded from the political scene in the 1990s – mounting a serious, sustained and, this time, a smart campaign for the votes of African Americans.

Democrats Trying To Consolidate Race Into Biden vs. Bernie

Klobuchar and Buttigieg are endorsing former Vice President Joe Biden in an effort to pump up his faltering campaign, and as the Democrat establishment tries to consolidate behind Biden, the Far Left has begun a social media campaign to push Senator Elizabeth Warren to drop out of the race and endorse Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders.

Assault on America, Day 426: What Super Tuesday won’t solve (Trump and minority voters)

After Super Tuesday, much discussion will focus on the remaining viable candidates in the Democrat presidential race, but it shouldn’t be ignored how President Trump’s campaign is gaining a foothold with once solid Democrat constituencies. This won’t change regardless of whether it’s Bloomberg, Biden or Sanders that eventually faces him.

Biden Wins SC, Bernie Wins Cash And Polls Heading To Super Tuesday

Joe Biden goes into the Democrats' Super Tuesday primaries almost broke and with no time to turn his South Carolina win into campaign cash. Sleepy Joe may have picked up a little bounce from his South Carolina win, and Michael Bloomberg may have dumped half-a-billion dollars on TV, but it is the Far Left "woke" progressives that are driving the Democratic primaries in most states, and they are solidly in Bernie Sanders’ corner.

Whither the Anti-Trump Uprising?

David Catron, The American Spectator

It must be discouraging for rank-and-file Democrats to see President Trump prospering after they were assured by their elected leaders that he would now be gone. It must be hard to witness sluggish turnout for their caucuses and primaries, to watch their potential presidential candidates squabble over the nomination like so many spoiled toddlers, to realize that the ultimate candidate will be chosen behind closed doors by “super delegates” whom they have never met. At some level, they must see that they have been repeatedly deceived, that the Resistance was a panacea whose purpose was to make them believe they were fighting injustice rather than filling the coffers of the Democratic Party.

Trump promised blowing up Washington; Bernie Sanders promises to blow up America

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Democrat frontrunner Bernie Sanders is promising to blow up America. He wants to give the federal government in Washington more power than any government in the history of the world. From cow farts to taxes, Mr. Sanders wants to empower the federal government to control virtually every aspect of Americans’ lives. The result is that Mr. Trump has garnered applause and jubilation among Republican voters in a way we have not seen since Ronald Reagan. Also, he has severely eaten into the base of Democrat voters. Mr. Sanders and his government-first, leftist Soviet-style socialism will never enjoy that kind of broad support among voters — Democrat or Republican — who love America and love freedom.

Assault on America, Day 425: Bloviating Biden wins one for the ruling class in South Carolina

Joe Biden will no doubt enjoy his South Carolina victory, but he shouldn’t get cocky. Super Tuesday looms large on the horizon and his prospects don’t look nearly as promising in the days ahead. The Democrat presidential race is more confused than ever, and the Palmetto State only made it worse.

Trump’s Chances for Reelection Are Looking Better and Better

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Trump has already been impeached by the House but was acquitted. Robert Mueller’s team spent 22 months and some $35 million to investigate collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 election — and came up short. The more Democrats have sought to abort the Trump presidency through impeachment, congressional investigations, lawsuits, and sheer hysteria, the more Trump seems Teflon-like and his approval ratings go up. Trump’s greatest advantage, however, may be his most likely opponent: the unapologetic socialist, Bernie Sanders. The various agendas of the radical Sanders turn off a majority of the public. Even mainstream Democrats are terrified of Sanders’s redistribution schemes.

Assault on America, Day 422: Dems’ coronavirus hype is climate change with a Chinese face

Some people need a reason to worry about something and that certainly appears to be the case where the coronavirus is concerned. With any number of more pervasive and lethal problems all around us, it just doesn’t make sense to scare the bejesus out of people for no legitimate reason. It’s all about politics, isn’t it?
