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?

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?

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.

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.

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?

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.

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?

Assault on America, Day 349: Joe Biden’s one-term pledge makes him seem even weaker

No one should give up before they start and the truism equally applies to old washed-up and truth-challenged politicians like Joe Biden. The fact the Democrat frontrunner’s letting it be known he’ll serve only one term should theoretically help his campaign; but it also makes him look like a quitter from the get-go.

Assault on America, Day 345: Ready for ‘Live! Live! Live!’ or ‘Die! Die! Die!’ in the senate?

There isn’t much funny about impeaching a president and watching him being tried before the stodgy senate, but Democrats have ruined any pretense of seriousness in this current witch hunt. Senators will decide soon whether -- and who -- to call as witnesses. Trump will survive, but the nation won’t forgive.
