Sanders Supporters Shocked to Find Bias at CNN

David Catron, The American Spectator

It has long been obvious that CNN operates more like the PR department for the Democratic National Committee (DNC) than a legitimate news outlet. This is the lesson the Left should learn from CNN’s performance during Tuesday night’s debate. When progressives turn a blind eye to unfair media coverage of conservatives and Republicans, they set their own candidates up for similar treatment. When they tacitly approve the unethical behavior of people like Donna Brazile, Candy Crowley, and Abby Phillip, the Left empowers a corporate beast that will pick up their scent sooner or later. It has no ideology beyond money and power, and it will not lose its appetite when their opponents have been digested.

The Dems Could Bern It All Down

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Let’s be clear about one thing – Bernie Sanders is not cute and he’s not funny. He’s an unrepentant adherent of a vicious ideology that has butchered better than 100 million people in the last hundred years. The risk of electing a doctrinaire Marxist is open civil war – with his murder-fetishizing acolytes on the anti-freedom side along with the Never Trump True Conservatives™ who contend that True Conservatism™ demands we submit to communist rule because Trump tweets mean things at fugly celebs. If the Democrats insist on Sanders, and through some horrible chain of events he gets the majority of the electoral votes, they will have lit the fire that could Bern it all down.

Assault on America, Day 380: Democrat physics lesson shows Bernie and Liz can’t share space

It doesn’t take a legendary physicist to suggest two politicians can’t both occupy the same space at the same time. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have been walking a fine line since the beginning of the Democrat presidential race. With a little over two weeks to go until Iowa, the pressure is mounting on both of them.

Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, and Household Pets

R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator

Joe Biden is the Democrats' candidate; he's almost as amusing as Donald, though inadvertently. So what. A laugh is a laugh, but why are the Democrats such easy targets for ridicule? There is not a candidate among those still running (and those dreaming of running) that is not an easy target for laughs, sometimes rude laughs. Well, beginning with Bill Clinton and his lovely wife Bruno, the party leadership has increasingly been made up of phonies. I estimate that the last normal person to run for the presidency as a Democrat was Hubert Humphrey. As to his successors, there is not one of them that you would want to have living in your neighborhood. Even their household pets are weird.

Assault on America, Day 379: Awful Virginia Democrat gun grab begs for a Trumpian retort

The presidential election is still months away and there’s much that can and will happen between now and then to influence it, but President Trump can help his cause today by highlighting the awful Democrat-led gun grab in Virginia. By doing so, the commonwealth might just go back to being a red state, too.

Bernie’s Gulag Archipelago

Our friend James O’Keefe and his Project Veritas team have done it again, this time exposing exactly what Bernie Sanders’ supporters have in mind for you if you disagree with them. It will be a Gulag where you will be re-educated, but earn a living wage and have conjugal visits, says Bernie field organizer Kyle Jurek.

Assault on America, Day 378: Democrat debate shows worst place to be on February 3 is in Iowa

America is watching. The more Democrats talk, the better it is for Trump. The Trump campaign should advocate for a short impeachment trial to encourage his Democrat opposition to remain in the spotlight. Sometimes doing less actually accomplishes more. Iowa Democrats have a heck of a hard choice on February 3.

Trump’s Antagonism Of Iran Is A Wrapped Gift To Bernie

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Trump has elevated the Middle East wars as a major issue in 2020, not his strong suit. For, as the military says, “The enemy gets a vote!” as to how much blood, including American blood, will be shed in 2020. With the killing of the general and the possibility of a U.S.-Iran war rising, Bernie is the Democratic candidate whose anti-war credentials are the longest and strongest and whose position of avoiding war with Iran is most in sync with the majority of the party he seeks to lead. Sanders could ride anti-war sentiment to victory in Iowa and New Hampshire and have the wind behind him going into South Carolina and Super Tuesday. He could occupy in 2020 the space Trump occupied in 2016.

Mayor Pete’s African American Problem

Buttigieg’s African American problem was driven home a couple of days ago by the stark numbers coming out of a Washington Post/Ipsos poll: While 48% of black voters polled backed Joe Biden, only 2% of black Democratic-leaning voters backed the former South Bend Mayor.

Assault on America, Day 377: Are they serious? Will Bernie Sanders really win in Iowa?

Tonight’s seventh Democrat debate will probably be much like the previous six editions, only even whiter and more contentious. The dividing line between the liberal candidates is clearer than ever and the top tier is digging-in for a final push to Iowa. Will Bernie blow a gasket tonight? We all want to know.

Assault on America, Day 376: Impeachment sham the type of DC circus no one finds gratifying

There’s little doubting many Democrats now realize that impeachment has turned into a hopeless fiasco without any clear chance at redemption. With each moment that goes by Speaker Nancy Pelosi digs the hole a little deeper, a mistake voters aren’t likely to forget as the calendar moves towards election day.

Assault on America, Day 373: Many signs point to disgraced early exit for ‘Pocahontas’ Warren

Successful presidential candidates must endure and survive the most thorough vetting of any job on earth. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren didn’t figure to be the sturdiest of candidates -- she can’t even get her background straight -- and the process exposed her as a wavering fraud. Will she exit after Iowa and New Hampshire?

Assault on America, Day 372: Is Biden right? Is Trump really damaging the ‘soul’ of America?

As long as President Trump succeeds in making inroads for the GOP with Democrat base constituencies, candidates like Joe Biden will continue accusing him of robbing the “soul” of the country. Politics is a dirty business -- and Trump has an extremely thick skin -- but Democrats should mind the tone of their charges.

Assault on America, Day 371: Trump to Congress: Read My Tweets; Dems don’t get it

No one disputes we’re living in interesting times. President Trump isn’t your prototypical president and today’s Democrats aren’t a conventional opposition. Trump was correct to suggest Democrats consult his Twitter feed for up-to-the-moment policy -- it’s one less source to subpoena and impeach.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?
