2020 Election

Will 2020 Be the Beginning of a Socialist America?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

To achieve Bernie Sanders' Socialist America, the filibuster would have to be abolished, easily done, and the Constitution altered, requiring the support of three-fourths of the states, not so easy. Yet, as of today, the unannounced front-runner Joe Biden, who is taking fire from many quarters, appears to be the last man standing between Sanders Socialism and the Democratic nomination. Should Joe falter and fall, Trump would be the nation's last line of defense against the coming of a Socialist America. For never-Trump conservatives, the day of reckoning may be just ahead.

Assault on America, Day 93: Will Trump wrestle healthcare momentum away from Dems in 2020?

By urging the senate to revisit the possibility of repealing and replacing Obamacare, President Trump made a political move to assure the public he hasn’t forgotten about the issue ahead of next year’s election. Ruling class Republicans and Democrats take note -- Trump means what he says.

Better Than Obamacare

Betsy McCaughey, The American Spectator

Trump said the plan will be released after the 2020 election, but White House health experts have already put out reports suggesting what the Trump alternative will look like. The key pieces are a special fund for people with pre-existing conditions, allowing lower cost plans, and reforming Medicaid. Don’t believe the dire predictions. Trump’s reforms will enable millions priced out of Obamacare to buy insurance, while protecting people with pre-existing conditions and getting the scammers out of Medicaid.

Assault on America, Day 92: Why Conservatives cower in shadows at today’s liberal colleges

One can only hope free speech conditions improve for young conservatives on college campuses, and President Trump will do everything in his power to make sure of it. In America, no one should fear for their reputation or safety simply by identifying themselves. What is this, North Korea?

Assault on America, Day 91: Joe Biden just the latest creep calling the Democrat Party home

Chances are Joe Biden’s inappropriate conduct won’t derail his chances in the Democrat primaries, but there’s no doubt he’d emerge as damaged goods heading into the 2020 general election. A #MeToo driven party like the Democrats would be better served by staying (far) away.

It’s Not Collateral Damage To The Victims Of The Mueller Witch Hunt

Unlike Democrat and Far Left figures, such as Christine Blasey Ford, there is no million-dollar GoFundMe pot of gold at the end of the ordeal for Caputo, Corsi, Papadopoulos, Stone and the rest of those caught up in the hoax that became the Mueller investigation.

The Cynical Liars Who Started The Mueller Investigation Must Be Punished

Senator Lidsey Graham's investigators should start working their way backwards through the chain of command at the FBI and DOJ to find out who ordered the normal FISA warrant verification and factfinding process to be waived. Only at that point will the real extent of the conspiracy against President Trump be revealed, so that action may begin to punish those who perpetrated it.

These Democrats And #NeverTrumpers Must Apologize To America For The Russia Collusion Hoax

Will these Democrats and their #NeverTrump allies apologize to the country and to President Trump, his family and the innocent people whose lives they rent asunder? Tucker Carlson has said more than once, decent people apologize when they are wrong. As we see it, none of these Democrats and #NeverTrumpers can claim a shred of decency, but we should still demand that they apologize.

Can Trump Win Again in 2020?

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Trump now has a record, not just promises. Of course, his base supporters and furious opponents have widely different views of the Trump economy and foreign policy. Yet many independents will see successes since 2017, even if some are turned off by Trump’s tweets. Still, if things at home and abroad stay about the same or improve, without a war or recession, Trump will likely win enough swing states to repeat his 2016 Electoral College victory. Democrats think 2020 will be an easy win over a controversial and often wounded president. Republicans thought the same thing in 2012.

Like him or not, Trump speaks fluent political prose

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Trump uses rough speech, never concerned about giving himself cover for retreat. This takes him into places nobody else would go, such as a fight with a dead man (John McCain), or intervening in a fuss between a man and his wife (Kellyanne Conway and her husband George) because such attempted intervention is grossly impolite and probably impolitic, too, and a busybody’s errand, since an outsider never knows what he’s talking about. But whatever the Donald’s faults may be a lack of confidence is clearly not one of them.

Joe Biden’s Race Problem

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Biden knows that just as Bernie Sanders, another white male, fell short in crucial South Carolina because of a lack of support among black voters, he, too, has a problem with that most loyal element in the Democratic coalition. With a record like his, how does Biden inoculate himself against attacks by rival candidates, especially candidates of color, in his run for the nomination? One way would be to signal to his party that his 2020 running mate will be a woman of color such as Stacey Abrams.

Here Comes a Cakewalk for Democrats

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

At the dawn of the 2020 presidential campaign, we can already see what's coming, the contrast in tone between "news" coverage of Trump and the bus full of his Democratic opponents. It's going to be just preposterous. It will have all the fairness and balance of a waiter asking you if you'd like to dine on filet mignon or ingest rat poison. Bernie, Biden, Beto and all the rest. It doesn't matter. They're all fantastic. Win or lose, they'll each get a participation trophy.

Every Time Democrats Talk, I Want To Vote For Trump Twice

George S. Bardmesser, The Federalist

Today, every single Democrat I can name is working overtime to make certain that I will pull the lever for Trump again, and with both hands this time. Trump need not worry about locking down my vote––the Democrats are doing all the heavy lifting. Every time the Democrats and their media allies peddle yet another “end of the Trump presidency bombshell,” I laugh hysterically. If I laughed any harder, people would think I was having an epileptic seizure. I can’t even keep track of half the revelations that were supposed to bring Trump to an ignominious end.

Trump's Most Daunting Task: Educating on Socialism

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Our youth has suffered from a form of child abuse by their teachers and the media. They have been told, implicitly and explicitly, from earliest childhood that socialism is the preferable system because of "fairness." The next election is likely to be some form of socialism versus capitalism, no matter who the Democrats nominate. If Bernie Sanders, it will be front and center, but it won't be far away with other candidates. Every election is said to be the most consequential. This one really is. It's about a lot more than the individuals running.

Have the Democrats finally gone too far?

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Democrats have no real plans, and yes, absolutely yes, they are way out of bounds in their fanatical reactions to Trump. They assume that a majority of the public hates him as much as they do, and that ruthless, endless assaults on him, his children and business will yield political gold. Of course, my belief that Dems are going too far could be the minority view. Polls suggest the nation is split almost exactly in half over Trump, leaving fewer and fewer swing voters up for grabs.

The Dems Will Lose the House in 2020

David Catron, The American Spectator

The Republicans will deliver a humiliating defeat to House Democrats in 2020 if its alleged leaders fail to rein in their own cadre of fanatical leftists, the core of which consists of recently elected social justice warriors Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley, Rohit Khanna, Raul Grijalva, and Pramila Jayapal. But the internecine fight that preceded the cowardly revision of the anti-Semitism resolution into a denunciation of generic bigotry suggests that party leaders may not hold enough sway over their own caucus to prevent it from self-destructing.

Why Trump Will Win in 2020

David Catron, The American Spectator

The President is an unapologetic advocate of free-market capitalism. Understands that tax cuts for individuals and businesses — combined with aggressive deregulation — stimulate economic growth and job creation. That translates into improvements in the lives of real people and a general sense of optimism about the future. Are the voters going to give that up for pie-in-the-sky promises from a leftwing Democrat who can’t explain how to pay for them, yet insists that the President is a crook? Nope. Trump, warts and all, will win in 2020.

Gallup: Trump Economic Approval Highest Yet at 56 Percent

The Gallup Organization reports Trump's rating for handling the economy, 56 percent, is the highest of his presidency and the highest of his approval ratings on any of 14 domestic and foreign issues tested in the latest Gallup poll. Americans' approval of his handling of unemployment is nearly as high, at 54 percent.

Donald Trump the paradox

Victor Davis Hanson, The Spectator

The nation may believe that it could not withstand the fire and smoke of a series of Trump-like presidencies. But given the direction of the country over the last 16 years, half the country, the proverbial townspeople of the classic Western, wanted some outsider, even with a dubious past, to ride in and do things that most normal politicians not only would not, but could not do — before exiting stage left or riding wounded off into the sunset, to the relief of most and the regret of a few.

Why Trump is Destined for an Historic 2020 Win

Conrad Black, American Greatness

The Democrats are like a suicide case contemplating Russian roulette with all chambers loaded, and they are the ones loading in the cartridges: open borders, a top personal income tax rate of around 70 percent, nationalized health care; legalized infanticide; a green policy that bans cars, airplanes, oil, coal, and bovine flatulence; and now reparations for African-Americans, and perhaps, says Senator Elizabeth Warren (0.5 percent American Indian), for the native people. Unless a sensible person gets hold of that party, the Democrats will self-inflict mortal wounds and give Trump the greatest plurality in history.
