2020 Election

Impeachment Trial: What Should Trump And McConnell Do?

The President's desire to have his day in court lines up with the thinking of many grassroots Trump supporters who want to see witnesses like Joe Biden, Biden’s son Hunter, Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff, and fake “whistleblower” Eric Ciaramella all called and flayed alive on TV. But given the reluctance of Senate leaders to create the potential for the trial turning into a televised circus, it seems unlikely that will happen.

Assault on America, Day 362: How do you kill a presidential campaign stone dead? Ask Biden

No one ever claimed running for president was easy, and it’s brought low a number of good people as well as exposed frauds who just can’t keep their message straight. Joe Biden is telling liberals what they want to hear, but one can’t help but sense his days on the campaign trail are numbered.

If unemployment stays low and wages rise, Trump will be unstoppable in 2020

Scott Walker, Washington Times

Democrats will have a tough fight in 2020. Oddly enough, the impeachment battle made it more likely that the president will get re-elected next year. Voters in my home state are responding to the impeachment much as they did to the protests and recall election years ago. Liberals are all worked up and take out their emotions in massive protests. Conservatives finally get worked up and rally for the election. And independents want action over partisan bickering. The more that President Trump can show that he is doing good things, the better off he is with independent voters. Continued signs of economic growth, low unemployment and higher wages will keep voters happy in the coming year.

Can Trump Put Humpty-Dumpty (the USA) Back Together Again?

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

Trump's real challenge, and it will be an extraordinarily difficult one, close to a 10 on the Richter Scale, will be to put Humpty-Dumpty—aka the United States of America—back together again. America, right now, despite the aforementioned affluence and peacefulness, is a truly unpleasant place to live. We are not loving our neighbors. In order to really “make America great again,” so we can indeed live with each other, even if Durham indicts half a dozen of his opponents, even if he wins a smashing victory in November, the president must resist two powerful temptations: vengeance and gloating. This will be problematic for Trump, who thrives on confrontation, but he must do it.

Assault on America, Day 359: GOP establishment and Democrats are light years behind Trump

Neither the Democrats nor Trump’s few remaining intra-party GOP boo birds will change the outcome of impeachment or win the greater fight for the honest affections of the American People. This is one area where the establishment is most definitely not striking back; they might as well quit while they’re light years behind.

Assault on America, Day 358: Trump expands GOP base while Democrats pander to radicals

Both parties’ candidates pay a lot of attention to their base voters. It’s a myth to claim that Trump isn’t even trying to expand the GOP base -- he does it all the time through outreach to various interest groups and ethnic constituencies. In 2016 he said to black voters, “What do you have to lose?” It still rings true, and will likely be reflected in the 2020 election results.

Assault on America, Day 356: At Christmas, peace on earth, goodwill towards men and accountability for all

The furor over impeachment won’t magically go away. Christmas may be a time to think about higher concepts and honor the tranquility that living in the land of the free affords us, but Democrats will inevitably be held accountable for their actions. And 2020 is bound to be a heck of a year.

Assault on America, Day 355: Nothing new in Washington equates to arguments at the table

In “normal” times people wouldn’t allow politics or other extra-family subjects to ruin Christmas celebrations, but these days aren’t typical and Americans are angry about what’s going on in the nation’s capital. President Trump recently told Greta Thunberg to “chill” -- the same could be said for the rest of the world.

Nancy Pelosi Is A Totalitarian Bully

As we’ve said in other columns the impeachment of President Trump demonstrates why Democrats can never, ever again be trusted with control of the federal government. Speaker Pelosi’s thuggish totalitarianism in denying the House Minority its traditional rights to speak and call witnesses is just one more frightening example of what Democrat government would look like.

Assault on America, Day 352: Democrat sleep-aid candidates do L.A., and the nation nods off

This debate won’t move the needle much, if at all. If impeachment reaches the senate -- and that’s a big if at this point -- it could conceivably affect the outcomes in the early states. Christmas is almost here. The biggest gift Americans deserve is a rest from the political backbiting. Will they get it?

Just another electoral shell game

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Democrats in Congress decided to take matters into their own hands. Just too important to leave to stupid voters next November. Bogus charges. Sham investigation. Circus hearings. Rushed impeachment. The result is the most hotly partisan, half-baked, nakedly political impeachment in American history. House Democrats will vote this week and — unlike your votes — theirs will count. President Trump will be impeached. The stock market will hit new record highs. Because all serious people know this is a joke. The Senate will give the impeachment referral precisely the respect it deserves. And then next November we will have another chance to vote for Donald Trump. Again.

Gohmert – Nadler Clash A Metaphor For Everything Wrong About Impeachment

The clash between Gohmert and Nadler was a fitting metaphor for the Democrats’ entire impeachment fantasy in which any facts that conflicted with or brought into question their carefully constructed narrative and carefully tailored record were dismissed as “Russian propaganda.”

Mitch McConnell Sets Up Democrat Impeachment Managers For Days Of Public Humiliation

Given the weakness of the record tailored by House Democrats in their impeachment “investigation,” Mitch McConnell telling Democrats they are stuck with the record as it stands as the basis for the presentation of their case to the Senate sets up days of well-deserved public humiliation for the House Democrats selected as impeachment managers.

Assault on America, Day 351: Dem presidential wannabes battle Christmas and DC for notice

The only thing we know for certain is seven Democrat presidential candidates will take the stage tonight in Los Angeles. They’ll be a poor distraction away from the fireworks in Washington and holiday preparations Americans are making all across the country. This is definitely one scenario where “Nothing to see here” has a lot of resonance.

Poll After Poll Finds Democrats Underwater On Impeachment

When more voters oppose a candidate or issue than support it, we say the candidate or issue is “underwater” and when even CNN finds more Americans oppose impeachment than support it Democrats are not just underwater, they are drowning.

President Trump’s Fiery Letter To Pelosi Shreds Impeachment Case

In a powerful letter addressed to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, President Trump shredded the Democrats’ case for impeaching him and laid bare the anti-constitutional, anti-American process by which Democrats arrived at their two articles of impeachment.

Assault on America, Day 350: Trump and Fox News set records, Democrats help them do it

Records are made to be broken. As the public grows increasingly impatient with the false and fruitless Democrat impeachment narrative, expect President Trump to be tweeting and many, many people tuning into Fox News to receive an alternative point-of-view from what they’re getting elsewhere. Will 2020 be a record-setting year?

The Inexplicable Motives of the Deep State

Melissa Mackenzie, The American Spectator

The Democrats, media, deep state, and Never Trumpers fomented this fiction to stymie the duly elected president of the United States. They’re still doing it. Never has a president had to endure such relentless harassment. A man of business, Trump came to the presidency as a political naif and has reaped the wrath of a government leviathan hell-bent on protecting its power and ill-gotten gain. The president isn’t naive any longer. President Trump wants an impeachment trial in the Senate. He wants blood. He wants to call every witness and reduce them to rubble. Whether that’s the best political strategy or not is questionable. But Trump’s instincts so far have rarely been wrong.

Joe Biden? Seriously?

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

When you think of a calm, steady, wise presence guiding the nation, you do not think of Joe Biden, though that’s what is allegedly needed to end the nightmare of the Trump presidency – you know, the record job numbers and the lack of stupid new wars. You think of Obama and Stumbles McMyturn, only dumber and touchier. Just recently, Biden’s campaign ran an ad alleging that foreigners were “laughing” at Donald Trump. Is there any Democrat anywhere who takes America’s side in a dispute with malicious aliens? In any case, those tin pot euroweenies had plenty to cry about – Donald Trump has forced them to pay up for NATO. Of course, that will end too if Joe takes office.

Call These Vulnerable Democrats, Tell Them To Vote NO On Impeachment

There are 31 Democrat members of Congress who represent districts that President Trump carried in 2016. That includes 13 districts where the President defeated Hillary Clinton by more than 6 points. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard number (1-866-220-0044), we urge CHQ readers and friends to call these 31 Democrats now to stop the unfair and unfounded impeachment of President Trump.
