Assault on America, Day 517: Not even Dems should root for an anemic economic recovery

Clearly, not all Democrats hope the economy will come rushing back in the fall, but if they ever wish to realize any of their fantastical government-control schemes, they’d better hope it does. The debt disease is every bit as real as COVID-19 and the political class seems immune to demands to address it. No hype needed here.

Joe Biden's 'you ain't black' comment: The scourge of the left's identity politics

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

Identity politics is a scourge, not just because it’s insulting and shortsighted, but also because the impact of conditioning people into identifying through one sliver of who they are strips away the power of the individual. As more and more people in this country realize that their futures are linked with the health and well-being of their neighbors and of the country in general, the cancer of identity politics should be rejected quickly. Already black Americans are looking to political alternatives as we all know the power of not being taken for granted. That, however, will make even more Democratic “leaders” strike out.

Assault on America, Day 516: How Colonial Williamsburg could (again) free us from tyranny

The answers to present day challenges and dilemmas aren’t always garnered from contemporary proposals and solutions, and they’re definitely not found among today’s nanny-state governing authorities. In dealing with the coronavirus, perhaps we should look back to a time and place where liberty was honored and valued. What do you think?

Joe Biden's disturbing pattern of putting down minorities

Cal Thomas, Washington Times

Joe Biden said in an interview last week: “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.” Biden has made many demeaning comments about minorities for many years. One definition of pattern is: “a combination of qualities, acts, tendencies … forming a consistent or characteristic arrangement.” Biden’s “record” of putting down minorities is also part of his pattern. In 2007, speaking of Barack Obama, Mr. Biden: “I mean, you got the first mainstream African American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” he said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”

Assault on America, Day 513: Dopey Joe Biden and the political skill game he just can’t master

Joe Biden is one of the luckiest men in America. In spite of a decided lack of political talents he’s almost secured the Democrat nomination for president. As the party’s “next-in-line”, voters chose the safe option, believing Joe would be a sure-bet to best Donald Trump in November. Instead, Biden can’t keep his closet-racist foot out of his mouth.

Joe Biden gets racist; Media immediately forgive, forget

Joseph Curl, Washington Times

One guy didn't fall for Mr. Biden’s phony apology — Charlamagne tha God. The radio host said he was not impressed with his conversation with the former vice president. “My takeaway from the conversation was I heard him talking about things he did for black people back in the day, but you know ‘What have you done for me lately’ is my motto,” he said Friday. By Sunday, he was still steaming. “I don’t even care about the words and the lip service. The apology is cool but the best apology is actually a black agenda,” he said in an interview with MSNBC. “You know, they got to make some real policy commitments to black people.”

Assault on America, Day 512: Identity politics is the prison Grampa Joe can’t hope to escape

Democrats believe identity politics is the key to selecting the perfect running mate for Grampa Joe Biden, but it’s really a fortified jail cell without possibility of escape. There isn’t a woman on earth that will satisfy every Democrat interest group, so instead of making everyone happy, Biden’s choice will tick people off.

Joe Biden -- the perverted Magic Eight Ball that is always wrong

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Biden’s specialty all these decades has been foreign policy, about which he has been entirely, 100% wrong 100% of the time. In a place as hopelessly screwed up as Washington, being 100% wrong 100% of the time is an extraordinary accomplishment. And in the seedy, house-of-mirrors peep show that is Washington, being so consistently wrong is actually tremendously helpful. He is like a perverted Magic Eight Ball that always comes up exactly, perfectly, 100% wrong — 100% of the time. None of these pesky little false-negatives you get with a broken clock twice a day. How is it possible that this man is still in politics?

Biden Reelected Trump Last Friday

David Catron, The American Spectator

There is a certain symmetry to this. Biden wants to lead the party of slavery, Jim Crow, and segregation. President Trump leads the party that ended the “peculiar institution,” granted citizenship to former slaves, and recognized their right to vote. The Republicans did these things, as well as passing the 19th Amendment, despite the frequently violent objections of the Democrats. The best-kept secret in American politics is that, for these reasons, 95 percent of African-Americans voted Republican from the end of the Civil War until the 1930s. By that time, however, the GOP had come to take the black vote for granted.

Gropey Joe Thinks He’s an Expert On What Minorities Should Think

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Democrats have always had a special relationship with black Americans – “special” in the sense that it was especially horrible and abusive. Leaving aside the whole Democrat-initiated Civil War over Democrat slavery, the Democrat-founded KKK, and Democrat-imposed Jim Crow tyranny (a history they are still trying to rewrite today), Democrats still think that they owned a monopoly on black American votes. Oh, they feign concern.  Remember how Joe Biden warned black America of the peril posed by … Mitt Romney? Now, Biden seeks to instruct black Americans on who is legit black because of course he would think he should do that.

Assault on America, Day 511: Exploring the difference between shouldn’t and can’t be done

There’s a definite difference between what shouldn’t and what can’t happen. Opening up the economy is no longer an option, it’s a necessity. The rest is up to individuals to decide. And if a new wave of sicknesses returns in the fall/winter, there’s no going back to lockdown status. It’s never been more clear -- it can’t be done.

Assault on America, Day 510: This November, vote like life depends on it -- because it might

Democrats and Republicans will claim that their governors’ coronavirus responses helped save lives, but both sides can’t be right and statistics don’t lie. Now more than ever we see evidence that elections have consequences. Think about it before you cast your vote this November. The life you save might be your own.

Biden’s Ukraine (and China) Problems Will Never Go Away

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

When it comes to Biden, it’s Ukraine, right? They’re the unreliable corrupt ones. Just because Joe plagiarized in law school and several times thereafter doesn’t mean he hasn’t suddenly turned into an honest man. Seemingly out of nowhere, more news has just come from Ukraine. It’s certain that Biden’s “Ukraine problem” is not going to go away. Ditto his China problem, which also involves Hunter. Many claims were made that Trump would be in Putin’s pocket were he elected U.S. president. The reality is, for similar reasons with considerably more actual evidence, electing Biden would be far more dangerous to our country.

Assault on America, Day 506: Nancy Pelosi’s $3 trillion slush fund disguised as virus relief

It doesn’t take a genius to wonder why Democrats are working so hard to keep the economy closed -- they’re doing it so people will blame Trump and Republicans for the worst of the damage. With COVID-19 cases and deaths steadily declining, it will be much harder for the bigger government party to get its way. Have a pleasant and meaningful Memorial Day.

‘Joe Has Absolutely No Idea What’s Happening’

Salena Zito, The Epoch Times

President Trump, speaking in Pennsylvania, took aim at Joe Biden’s mental faculties, at one point claiming the Democrat “has absolutely no idea what’s happening.” Trump’s visit to Pennsylvania comes just as Gov. Tom Wolf dictated a plan that rolls out selective openings of the state—a move that has frustrated many rural counties that have been told to remain closed despite a moderately low number of cases and deaths. A new poll conducted by SSRS for CNN showed that nationwide, Trump trails Biden, but in the battleground states, which include Pennsylvania, 52 percent favored Trump, and 45 percent favored Biden.

End The Sweetheart Deal Joe Biden Gave The Chinese Communists

Since 2013, through a sweetheart deal negotiated by then-Vice President Joe Biden, Chinese companies have been allowed to participate in U.S. stock and bond exchanges without having to fully comply with the same Sarbanes-Oxley Act accounting practices and risk disclosure required of American companies. Now the Committee on the Present Danger: China has launched a campaign demanding the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board:cancel the agreement.

Assault on America, Day 505: America’s youth experience Great Awakening coronavirus-style

Every day it seems we’re awakening to a new set of surprises during the coronavirus pandemic and resultant economic panic. Recent graduates will have their own special challenges in the coming weeks and months and they don’t need more fearmongering. Now more than ever, we need the optimism of President Trump.

Biden’s Most Ridiculous Veep Prospect

Rich Lowry, National Review

Her foremost political achievement to date of making her gubernatorial loss into a cause célèbre among Democrats. Abrams can reasonably boast of an ability to stoke turnout among minority and young voters — she won more votes than any Democrat who has ever run statewide. But, given her high-octane progressivism, she’d have limited appeal to working-class swing voters and suburban women. By picking her, Biden would also be undermining one of his chief arguments, namely he’s a low-risk, experienced, steady hand. This means Abrams is likely to be passed over — and, if the past is any guide, conclude she got robbed.

Assault on America, Day 504: Will the ghost of 'The Bern' haunt Grampa Joe on Election Day?

Both parties’ prospects depend on being able to turn out their bases and here’s thinking Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats will encounter more than their share of resistance from the Bernie Sanders revolutionary faction. Much damage was done during the party primaries and won’t be repaired no matter how many endorsements flow in the interim.

In Praise Of Catherine Herridge

Where were the opposing voices in the breathless CBS News “reporting” on the Russiagate hoax? Nowhere to be found of course, because the totally false Trump – Russian collusion was the narrative that Democrats and their Deep State allies wanted to establish as the “truth.” In our view busting that narrative was Catherine Herridge’s real sin in the eyes of her liberal media colleagues at CBS and elsewhere.
