2020 Election

Assault on America, Day 370: If eliminating an enemy is bad, what do Democrats think is good?

It’s not always a good thing when political opponents take opposite sides of an issue, such as last week’s drone strike that killed an Iranian general. In times of war, serious matters should engender national unity and at least earn a nod towards a president’s important decisions. Partisans need to be on the same page.

How Tucker And Rand Got It Wrong On Killing Soleimani

As we have explained on numerous occasions Iran has declared war on America and the West, so whether we wish it, or not, we are in a war with the Islamic Republic, and whether we wish it, or not, one of the principle battlefields in that war is Iraq, where, until President Trump took him out, Qasem Soleimani was directing operations against us with impunity.

Biden Wrong On Foreign Policy And Lying About It (Again)

As former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates once said, Joe Biden has been "wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades." Now Biden is lying and trying to rewrite history to cover up those miscalculations and failures in judgement. Here are six recent lies about foreign policy from Joe Biden.

Assault on America, Day 369: Perspective, New Year’s resolutions and honoring good news

Political forecasters will continue seeing dark clouds on the 2020 horizon regardless of the positive outcomes among the citizenry. No one expects Trump or his adversaries to roll over and play dead. But at times like these, perspective is in order -- and that includes Trump’s critics and the insatiable media.

2020 predictions: Growing economy, draining the swamp and a Trump win

Scott Walker, Washington Times

In 2020, the president will declare war on Congress by signing executive orders requiring members of Congress, their families and staff to live with Obamacare (eliminating the exemptions given by former President Barack Obama). He will also attempt to invoke term limits for all members of Congress through executive action. 2020 will be a great year. Solid growth in the overall economy with the positive job and wage gains will lead to electoral success for the president and his allies in 2020. A small group of battleground states — Arizona, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin — will be the key to the 2020 re-election. The president will carry at least six of those eight states.

Bernie Sanders Is Miseducating Our Youth

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

Bernie too shall pass. What won’t is what has happened to our educational system. Besides this credulous and unsophisticated advocacy for socialism, it is being dumbed down at every turn, even basic math being accused of being a product of white privilege. One of the great challenges for a second Trump administration will be to unwind this trend. So far not nearly enough has been done. The administration has the power of the purse since nearly every college and university has made itself dependent on federal aid (Hillsdale College an honorable exception). The administration should withhold funds until our schools stop being near-indoctrination camps. It should be up to the people how they should be educated.

2020 Election: Will It Be Disruptor Trump vs. Disruptor Bernie?

Politicians like Joe Biden and Mitt Romney haven’t figured out the American people are hungry for change, and if Republicans won’t join President Trump in delivering it from the Right, then there are plenty of radical Democrats prepared to join Bernie Sanders to deliver it from the Left.

Conservatives Kill Tesla’s Federal Subsidy, But Democrat States Continue Elon’s Gravy Train

President Trump heroically told Pelosi that he wouldn't sign the tax extender bill if it included the Tesla subsidy. And the Speaker folded. However, it appears Democrats at the state level will continue Elon Musk’s taxpayer gravy train, because California, Nevada and New York are still subsidizing Tesla to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars.

Assault on America, Day 366: One month and counting ‘til Iowans cull the Dem wannabe herd

Time will tell if there’s another Iowa shocker on the horizon in next month’s Democrat caucuses. Polls are up and down in the state, though opinions seem to have stabilized around the top four competitors. With impeachment still up in the air, the outcome could still be in doubt. We’ll find out soon enough.

New Year’s Resolution for the Mainstream Media: Stop Lying

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

Leaking is the essence of the bulk of modern political journalism—a far cry from the police blotter of yore or the “who, what, why, when, where, and how” of the pre-Watergate days. Journalism then was not so high and mighty, and you could still pick up a newspaper with at least some certainty you weren’t about to be propagandized. Isn’t it time we went back to those old days for the new year? What about a resolution never to run an article based on or even containing anonymous sources? Plenty of other possible resolutions exist, but at least that’s a start. One step at a time, as they say. Unwinding this situation won’t be easy. We’re all biased humans, after all. But if some of us try, others may follow.

A New Year's Resolution: Don't forget the good news

John Fund, Fox News

Here’s one resolution that may be easier to keep and help maintain your sanity during the upcoming presidential campaign. Stop letting all the “bad news” that floods your mobile phone or TV make you forget there’s a lot of good news out there that makes a bigger difference to all of us in the long run. By all means, let us not tune out the slinging of political mud in the coming campaign or the natural disasters that take human life. But let’s all resolve to put it all into some context, and carry with us the realization that human progress continues. Here's a a prediction that if more of us recognized our "bad news biases" and resolved to let a bit more sunshine into our lives, we would all live in a saner world.

Booming economy gives Trump strongest argument for reelection

Matt Mackowiak, Washington Times

If Mr. Trump can focus his messaging on the economy every week of 2020, his job approval rating will increase and it will force Democrats to debate the economy, which they do not want to do. He should be traveling every week to tour factories that have expanded and manufacturing facilities that have come back online. Mr. Trump’s base has been with him for three years, through thick and thin. And it may be just enough to win reelection. But for Republicans to win back the majority in the House of Representatives, he needs a sweeping victory. That can be achieved only by winning over independent voters. Do this and Mr. Trump can win a sweeping reelection with Republican majorities in the House and Senate.

Trump Nails Reason Pelosi Is Withholding Articles Of Impeachment

President Trump tweeted: "The Democrats will do anything to avoid a trial in the Senate in order to protect Sleepy Joe Biden, and expose the millions and millions of dollars that 'Where's' Hunter, & possibly Joe, were paid by companies and countries for doing NOTHING. Joe wants no part of this mess!"

Trump Going Into 2020 Election: Promises Kept And Results Achieved

President Trump has fulfilled or is making significant progress on most of his 2016 campaign promises, but more important than the promises are the results: More than 7 million jobs have been added to the economy, more job openings than unemployed Americans and wages are growing at their fastest rate in a decade, to name but a few of those listed in today's article.

Assault on America, Day 365: Trump & Congress must confront spending or we’re doomed

As long as President Trump and congressional leaders of both parties continue putting off doing anything about spending and the national debt, Americans will remain frustrated at the lack of action. It’s not a taxing and revenue issue, it’s a lack of political backbone. Will Trump step up to the plate?

Will War Wipe Out Trump’s Chances For Re-Election?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Not infrequently, foreign policy has proven decisive in presidential years. Lyndon Johnson saw his party shattered and chances vanish with the Tet Offensive of 1968, Eugene McCarthy’s moral victory in New Hampshire, and antiwar candidate Bobby Kennedy’s entry into the race. Jimmy Carter’s feckless response to the seizure of U.S. hostages in Iran consumed the last year of his presidency. The critical foreign theaters where Trump could face problems with his presidential re-election include Afghanistan, Iran and North Korea. In former times, a confrontation or shooting war often benefited the incumbent, as there was almost always a rallying to the flag. Those days are gone. This generation has had its fill of wars.

The Great Revolt Enters a New Phase: How the Populist Uprising of 2016 Will Reverberate in 2020

Salena Zito, PJ Media

Suburban voters hold the keys to hotly contested 2020 Senate races in Michigan, North Carolina, Arizona and Colorado -- not to mention the entire slate of competitive House districts. The suburbs may be where control of government will be decided, but the 2020 election will not be the end of the coalition Trump mobilized in 2016 or the resistance that formed in response. Why? Because the individualization of our cultural economy and the self-sorting of our communities will keep fueling distrust of establishment institutions and keep roiling our political and consumer behaviors. Establishment politicians, CEOs and journalists all ignore the dynamism of this great revolt at their own peril.

Conservatives: Start The New Year Off Right By Running For Office

Conservatives must act NOW to make sure that we have limited government constitutional conservative candidates filed for every office up and down the ballot. The hunger for change in Washington and the demand for a purge of the Deep State is a powerful force in American politics that could produce another tsunami in elections across the country. But you must file NOW to get on the ballot.

2020 Starting With Great News On The Economy

“It’s gonna be a boom year in 2020 for the American economy. I’m looking at growth closer to three percent to two percent. I’m looking at the Dow well over 30,000, I predicted that several months ago that if we got USMCA and interest rates down then we’d get over 30,000. It’s gonna be a great year for America,” predicts Assistant to President Donald Trump and Director of the Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy Peter Navarro.

Assault on America, Day 363: Auld lang syne and what holds the future on the doorstep of 2020

2020 is destined to be another memorable one in the annals of United States history. The presidential campaign and election will dominate the news cycles, one side will claim a mandate and the other will cry foul. What comes afterward will determine the fate of the country. Will we survive?
