Assault on America, Day 135: Which 2020 Democrats will join Alyssa Milano’s sex strike?

Search efforts didn’t reveal whether any of the 2020 Democrat presidential hopefuls signed on to Alyssa Milano’s call for a nationwide “sex strike” -- but they all side with the abortion-on-demand cause behind it. Just when you thought American politics couldn’t get any screwier…what will it be next week?

Joe Biden and restoring the old (pre-Trump) order

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Biden stands ahead of the field. Democrats know how old he is, they know he has lost in the past, and they still like him. There's a truism that elections are always about the future, not the past. That's often the case. But what if it isn't this time? A lot of political truisms did not hold up in the 2016 election, which was won by a man with another promise of restoration, to "Make America Great Again." Now, many Democrats seem happy to support a candidate who pledges to take them back a few years. Again, that could change, but for the moment, it shows how many Democrats yearn to return to a time before Trump.

Assault on America, Day 134: As Bernie avoids touting socialism, 2020 Dems pick up the slack

It’s understandable how Democrat presidential candidates hope to set themselves apart from the others by dissing on President Trump, his record and his policies. But when push comes to shove they’d better provide facts to back up their claims. Bernie Sanders and cohorts aren’t making the grade.

Joe Biden Cuddle Studio Franchising Opportunity

Cuddle studios advertise they provide nourishment for the soul through laughter, compassionate listening, and above all else, an incredible grounding energy. However, the competition in the nascent cuddling industry is about to become even fiercer with the entry of a new market-maker: The Joe Biden Cuddle Studio franchise operation.

Assault on America, Day 133: The best way to guarantee a 2020 loss for Trump is go to war

Donald Trump’s shown a remarkable ability to manage his political affairs in such a way to accomplish great things, shore up his base level of support and give himself a very good chance at reelection. How could it all change on a dime? How about being ensnared in another war. Don’t do it, Mr. President.

Assault on America, Day 132: If Joe Biden is a ‘moderate,’ then every Democrat is a ‘centrist’

No matter how you slice it, Joe Biden is no “centrist” -- and he’s no “moderate” either -- nor are any of the other major 2020 Democrat contenders. The media tries to wrap these extremists in the most normal terminology possible, but underneath each one lies just another leftist belief system.

Assault on America, Day 131: R’s & D’s aren’t just mortgaging the future, they’re ruining it

Things won’t improve until there’s the political will to bring government spending under control. It’ll require a complete change in attitudes among the citizenry, too -- and a good sales job by our elected leaders. Something’s gotta give. Mortgaging the future is a reality…but there won’t be a house left to give the children.

Assault on America, Day 128: Pelosi’s awkward dilemma equals big opening for GOP next year

No one should feel sorry for Nancy Pelosi. She’s got a near impossible dilemma -- to manage the outspoken get-Trump fringe nuts in her caucus and still offer a coherent package of ideas for Americans to latch onto. Republicans have a golden opportunity to beat Democrats in 2020. Will they take it?

Assault on America, Day 127: Booker’s proposed gun grab makes him scariest of all 2020 Dems

Unfortunately for Americans, Sen. Cory Booker’s not being ironic in yearning to federalize gun ownership. True, he’s just trying to draw attention to his flailing presidential bid, but none of the other 2020 Democrats condemned anything in Booker’s crackpot plan either. Talk about “scary”.

Assault on America, Day 126: Obama blames Hillary for wrecking his legacy. Is he wrong?

Barack Obama shouldn’t be griping about his legacy -- those who live in glass houses should not throw stones. Hillary Clinton’s 2016 loss didn’t tarnish his reputation beyond what he’d already done to himself through eight years of arrogant malfeasance. 2020 Democrats seemingly haven’t grasped the lesson.

Why Biden won't get the Dem nomination

Thomas Lifson, American Thinker

The real reason why Biden won’t get the nomination is that he and his family are corrupt, enriching themselves courtesy of foreign governments. Normally, that would not be a problem for a Democrat because the dominant mainstream media is not interested in scandals affecting powerful Democrats. But with 22 Democrats running for president, some of them with MSM allies, and with grave doubts about Biden’s ability to defeat Trump (their overriding goal), these scandals will not be suppressed. Especially because they involve collusion with a foreign power (China and Ukraine). Biden is the 2016 Jeb! of the Democrats’ 2020 field. He looks like a shoe-in to many, but he will fade.

Assault on America, Day 125: Trump commission should shoot back at climate change commissars

Contrary to the claims of Democrats and the media, science is far from “settled” on climate change or other debatable concepts. Trump’s NSC climate commission may or may not be created but the political fight over the matter is unfinished. Some advice: if an enemy is shooting at you, “shoot back.”

Assault on America, Day 124: Democrats’ Trump tax return fix a prelude to all-out war in 2020

Democrats aren’t doing much to hide how they intend to approach the 2020 election. Anyone who thinks the 2016 campaign was nasty better gear up for the political war to end all wars next year. Donald Trump represents the biggest barrier to the realization of all the Democrats’ sinister schemes. Plan accordingly.

Biden’s Alleged Financial Ties To U.S. Enemy China Overshadow His 2020 Bid

Ben Weingarten, The Federalist

If we as a nation truly care about the corrosive, destabilizing nature of foreign influence, should not we be most concerned with the greatest foreign adversary of all? Should not business leaders be presenting a united front with members of an increasingly united federal government to drive as hard a bargain as possible to fundamentally change China’s behavior, and provide real teeth to any punishment should it fail to adhere to a deal, as it has done repeatedly in the past? As the CPDC’s speakers made clear, U.S.-China policy not only deserves to be at the center of the 2020 presidential election, it must be at the center of the 2020 presidential election.

Assault on America, Day 121: Who hurts his party more, Trump or Crazy Bernie Sanders?

It’s always comical whenever a liberal commentator offers advice to Republicans and even more hilarious when he or she attempts to define the Democrats. There’s no way that keeping Trump as head of the GOP hurts Republicans now -- a lesson Democrats will realize soon enough.

Sorry, Biden. America Doesn’t Want a #MeToo President

Betsy McCaughey, The American Spectator

One of the biggest differences between Republican and Democratic pols right now is their attitudes about #MeToo. Republicans value time-honored principles like due process and the presumption of innocence. Democrats have no patience for it. If an accusation happens to you, know that most of the Democrats running for president, including Joe Biden, won’t have your back. Sexual harassment is a grave matter, and accusations need to be taken seriously. But both the accused and the accuser deserve fairness. Sadly, that’s not on the Democratic Party agenda.

Assault on America, Day 120: On infrastructure, if you [don’t] build it Democrats will come

Democrats’ desperation to beat Trump in 2020 surpasses any desire to help the country, including passing a responsible infrastructure bill that won’t raise taxes. Pelosi and “Chucky” are only checking all the appropriate political (“We gotta do something”) boxes by appearing to cooperate. The inevitable result? Another stalemate.

Uncle Joe Plays the Race Card

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

With the economy firing on all eight cylinders, and the drive for impeachment losing steam, a new strategy is emerging — to take Trump down by stuffing him in a box with white supremacists. The strategy is not original. It was tried, but backfired on Hillary Clinton when she called Trump supporters "deplorables ... racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic ... bigots." The crimes that interest the media are those committed by white males against minorities, which can be used to flesh out the picture of America that preexists in the mind of the left, if not in the real world. Yet it does appear that issues of race, tribe and identity are becoming an obsession in our politics.

Biden Way Up in CNN Poll, but Will It Last?

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

With the Kentucky Derby right around the corner, Joe Biden appears to be way up in that other horse race, the Democratic presidential derby. He's a fat 20 points above Bernie, who seems to be slipping. In fact, we might be able to put a fork in the geriatric socialist. It's likely voters, even Democrat voters, are having trouble swallowing his declaration that terrorists should have the right to vote, one of the dumber statements made in the history of presidential politics. (What was or is going on in that man's brain?) But what about the others? They are so far back and there are so many of them that Joe, despite his also geriatric fumbling, may actually waltz into the nomination.

The old bird who can't recall how to fly straight

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Even the ladies concede that Joe is decent, kind, compassionate, thoughtful, a devout liberal if not much of a progressive (it’s those shoulder rubs), and other good stuff. Some of the ladies even give Joe points for pushing Barack Obama toward the left on issues like gay marriage — and for taking seriously the great sex crime wave on college campuses. Many of the ladies understand that Joe is the best-known and maybe even the most beloved man in the race. But this year, in what not so long ago was the party of Jefferson, Jackson and FDR, that counts only with those holding the vulgar idea that winning is what elections are about.
