Assault on America, Day 415: Trump rides ‘The Beast’ at Daytona, cruises to victory in November

There’s little doubt President Trump’s appearance at the Great American Race last Sunday turned heads and raised eyebrows among the Democrats and his #NeverTrump critics. Anti-Trumpers look on helplessly while Trump gathers momentum for the fall campaign, just like “The Beast” circled the track at Daytona.

The Dumpster Fire In Vegas

Last night's Democratic Party primary debate was a real dumpster fire, and it was a dumpster full of Michael Bloomberg’s money that went up in flames. But the dumpster fire isn't out yet. Democrats still have to navigate a caucus system that was set up to stuff Bernie Sanders, but with Bloomberg's implosion they have no viable alternative to the socialist curmudgeon from Vermont.

Rep. Chip Roy Stands Against Senate GOP Amnesty Plan

Principled limited government constitutional conservative Republican Representative Chip Roy (TX-21) has stepped-up to oppose the backdoor amnesty plan being promoted by the open borders wing of the business community and their allies in the Senate’s Republican Conference. We urge CHQ readers to call their Senators (1-866-220-0044) to express opposition to the Farm Workforce Modernization Act.

Assault on America, Day 414: Las Vegas pounding knocks the Bloomberg off Mike’s rose

Not even the infusion of new blood made this debate any more interesting than the previous iterations. The only thing the Democrat Vegas debate revealed was that the party has a heck of a Sanders-sized problem on their hands. Even if Biden somehow jumpstarts his on-deathwatch campaign, or Bloomberg emerges, or Klobuchar, or Buttigieg, or even “Pocahontas” Warren surges -- they still have to confront Trump later this year.

Bill Barr Derangement Syndrome

Rich Lowry, National Review

It’s no wonder that Trump's Attorney General William Barr has a poorly disguised contempt for his critics, many of whom are so inflamed by their opposition to Trump that they’ve lost any sense of standards. In a peppery speech to a Federalist Society conference last year that is now one of the counts against him, Barr rightly warned that “it is the Left that is engaged in a systematic shredding of norms and the undermining of the rule of law.” At the end of the day, they really don’t want Trump to have an attorney general, but that’s not going to happen. If they force Barr out — or more likely, Trump’s continued tweeting pushes him over the edge — they’ll miss him when he’s gone.

Remember the 'NASCAR Democrats?' Neither do they

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Seriously, Democrats, thank you for trying. For trying to understand normal God-fearing, freedom-loving Americans. Because there are none of those Democrats left any more. Democratic politicians today no longer even pretend to like America or American voters. This is a major reason why Hillary Clinton lost in 2016. And now they seem hellbent to repeat the same mistake this time. Watching the president’s limo — nicknamed “The Beast” — lap the track as the racing cars roared and rumbled behind it had to be a sight to behold. Not in attendance in Daytona were Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders or Mike Bloomberg. If there were any of the elusive “NASCAR Democrats” there, they were not speaking up.

The Absurd ‘Trump Is a Tyrant’ Trope

David Catron, The American Spectator

That people like Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg, Elizabeth Warren, et al. are touring the nation publicly abusing the president in order to capture the Democratic nomination is proof that Trump is not a tyrant. In a genuine dictatorship, there would be no alternative party from which to challenge him. He has the power to obliterate entire cities, yet the worst any of these people can expect from our Oval Office “autocrat” is a snarky tweet. If the Democrats want to win, they will have to stop running against an absurd caricature and try to learn what the president knows that they have missed. The voters will be happy to tell them if they will just shut the hell up and listen.

Michael Bloomberg: Like Penny Loafers At A Rodeo

The entertainment of value of Bloomberg’s phoniness aside, the former New York City Mayor’s real problem is that the authentic Bloomberg would get buried in both the Democratic Party’s primary and the general election, because, judging by what the real Michael Bloomberg says in unscripted moments, he’s an even nastier elitist than Hillary Clinton.

Jeb Bush Urges Republicans To Go Back To Being Punching Bags For The Left

One thing Donald Trump will never be is a punching bag, and as a consequence of what Jeb Bush and his ilk view as Trump’s incivility, the Republican Party has returned to its roots as a political movement that fights for its principles, rather than politely compromising them away.

Assault on America, Day 413: Floating Hillary as VP won’t win Bloomberg any bets in Vegas

National elections have a way of sorting things out and this year’s will be no different. Tonight, Democrat presidential candidates will hem and haw about “unity” and “restoring the soul of the nation,” but there’s no getting around the fact we’re one divided nation. And having Hillary Clinton as vice presidential nominee wouldn’t make it better.

A Trump–Bernie Brawl Would Benefit the Nation

David Catron, The American Spectator

If Sanders wins the Democratic nomination, he won’t attempt to hide his views behind euphemism and subterfuge. Carville, Penn, and other rational Democrats should get out of the way and let Trump take out Sanders and the radical Democrats who control the House. But this will work only if Sanders is the nominee. If some ostensible moderate is handed the Democratic nomination by the party elite and proceeds to lose, it will strengthen insurgent socialists like AOC. It’s time for a strategic retreat. That means defeat by Trump and the GOP in November, which would indeed be hard to swallow. In the end, however, it would be good for both parties and the nation as a whole.

Forget the Good Manners—Trump Should Keep Tweeting

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

I say, keep on keepin’ on, Donald. The reason is simple. He has no choice. He has no other place to go, really. Most of the media (the major newspapers, the networks and all of cable news with the exception of Fox, which is not always reliable) are lined up against him. Indeed, as we all know, they have wanted him out of office from before he even had it. Even the Wall Street Journal doesn’t give him a fair shake in their front pages that are little different from those of the New York Times and the Washington Post. All rely on nefarious, anonymous leaks aimed at bringing the president down. How, other than Twitter, can he really get his message out the way he wants it?

Trump Drives Democrats Crazy At Daytona

We think that maybe Kelly O’Donnell is not old enough to remember the 1992 presidential campaign, but Maggie Haberman certainly is, and so we contrast the reception President Trump got at the Daytona 500 with the reception Bill Clinton got in 1992 when his motorcade entered Darlington speedway, where 70,000 rabid stock-car fans awaited the start of the Southern 500.

Assault on America, Day 412: Fundraising and policy success is Trump’s way to ‘feed the wolf’

It is undoubtedly true that money helps “feed the wolf” in political campaigns. Without it you can’t pay staff, purchase advertisements, send out mailers or do other tried-and-true canvassing methods. But big bucks don’t buy everything. President Trump has a healthy war chest and issues on his side -- and that’s all he needs to succeed in November.

The Myth Of The Moderate Democrat

Our friend Deroy Murdock recently posted an analysis of the legislative scorecards for the Senators still in the race for the Democratic Party's nomination for President. It turns out that so-called moderates Amy Klobuchar and Joe Biden have often posted scores to the Left of Socialist Bernie Sanders. What's more, former Mayors Bloomberg and Buttigieg are every bit as Far Left as Sanders, Klobuchar, Biden and Warren.

Assault on America, Day 411: Time to stick a fork in Joe Biden’s comatose candidacy…or is it?

Anyone with eyes and experience knows Joe Biden’s campaign is in trouble and may be on unalterable death watch. But it’s still too early to say for sure whether the former Obama veep is comatose and headed for political obscurity. Nevada and South Carolina will have their say. Will Biden spring back to life?

Trump Charges the Liberal Hacks’ Latest Ambush

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

There was a lot of talk about how “troubling” and even “frightening” it was that Donald Trump “interfered” with the “prosecutorial discretion” of these first-line functionaries. There was little talk of how obviously it was a set-up designed to try to trick Trump into violating some newly created norm – that new norm being that a president must leave unaddressed manifest injustices (Roger Stone's sentence) inflicted upon his supporters. Except Trump does not play that loser’s game. They still think that Trump can somehow be shamed into obedience to the elite by castigating him for violating its arbitrary and unequally enforced unwritten rules. He can’t.

Billionaires Buying Or Bribing Their Way To Democrat Nomination?

Bloomberg has already tripled Trump’s 2016 spending, with no end in sight. Bloomberg has said he’s open to spending $1 billion dollars of his own money in his bid to become president, but whether he and Tom Steyer can use their billions to buy or use legal forms of bribery to build a loyal and effective campaign organization remains to be seen.

Assault on America, Day 408: The American economy stinks? According to Democrats it does

No matter how hard they try, Democrats will have a heck of a time convincing Americans that the economy isn’t working for them and that the only solution to their woes is to turn Trump out of office. Telling someone to see something that isn’t there isn’t exactly a sound strategy for success.

GOP Joining Democrat Illegal Alien Amnesty Through New Farm Bill

The toll-free Capitol Switchboard number (1-866-220-0044), we urge CHQ readers and friends to call Senators Tillis, Graham and Lankford to demand that they get off this Democrat-inspired amnesty for illegal aliens bill. Vice President Mike Pence may be reached at 202-456-7549, we urge you to call him to tell him he risks losing the support of the conservative movement if he or his political operation back any bill that grants amnesty to illegal aliens.
