Assault on America, Day 525: Democrats bet on social justice warriors, Trump sides with police

November’s election is still far off and no doubt much will happen between now and then to influence the ultimate outcome. Wagering on a Biden landslide victory doesn’t seem to be the prudent thing to do at this point, but if a Democrat offers to put his or her money where their mouth is, you’d be a fool not to take it.

Assault on America, Day 524: It’s all race all the time for Grampa Joe’s running mate vetting

Recent events have placed further restrictions on who Joe Biden can realistically select as his running mate. With today’s race-is-everything fixation in the Democrat party, the nominee simply can’t go against the liberal grain and choose someone like Amy Klobuchar or Elizabeth Warren. Biden’s built his own prison -- now he must serve time in it.

Assault on America, Day 523: A House Divided, two Americas and the plight of culture in 2020

It’s never been clearer that there are two Americas in 2020. The side that believes in the political, judicial and legislative process had better rise up and take back the initiative and narrative from the burn-it-all-down leftist faction. A house divided against itself cannot stand. Abraham Lincoln, where are you now?

Assault on America, Day 520: Which side does Joe Biden favor, the criminals or the victims?

It's possible -- but highly doubtful -- that we’ll learn in the coming weeks and months what the “protests” were all about, and the leftist “leaders” will clarify what exactly it is that they want. Until that time, political schleps like Joe Biden will continue making hay out of social stupidity, and the world won’t be a better place.

Assault on America, Day 519: ‘Take one for the team’ gains distinct meaning in 2020 Election

Recent events demonstrated that politics is very much a team sport and Republicans would do well to unify to defend Americans’ rights and freedoms under the Constitution. Democrats certainly won’t do it. The end result of personal grudges and intra-party backbiting is losses on Election day. The practical results would be calamitous.

Assault on America, Day 518: Miscreants and thugs won’t ruin America -- unless we let them

We are living in strange times and the nationwide “protests” go along with the overpowering sense of weirdness. Not everything is as it seems, however, and there may be some positive points emerging from the recent craziness. When the smoke clears, Americans will take another hard look at the ruling class. What will they see?

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.

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?

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.

David Franke: Why Covid-19 Is So Different from Previous Pandemics

Our friend David Franke writing for RichardCYoung.com says this is not the first time that a pandemic has struck hard at the United States. What is different today is how we have over-reacted with fear and panic. Mr. Franke takes a quick stroll through the history of the past 100 years and then draws some lessons about why our current reaction is so unprecedented.

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.

Confirmed: 'Some people are making more money by not working.'

While some workers are turning down jobs because they’re worried about getting sick or infecting family members or because they don’t have child care, others are flat-out telling employers they’re making more money safe at home collecting unemployment. Fifteen days to flatten the curve morphed into five months off work at more than your regular pay, to -- if Democrats get their way -- a full year of watching TV on the taxpayers’ tab.

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.

Conservative Leaders: End Perverse Incentives Keeping Workers Home

No matter the dearth of local COVID cases or the establishment’s strict safety precautions, expanded unemployment benefits, including a $600 a week COVID "bonus," have incentivized some employees to refuse to return to work. Now, a group of conservative leaders has penned an open letter to Republicans in Congress and President Trump urging them to fix the policies that encourage workers to stay off the job.

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.

Support Trump 's Plans to Jumpstart the Economy and Get Americans Back to Work

Contrary to what Democrats clearly want – which is to increase the economic damage and misery – President Trump has begun to implement a bold plan of regulatory relief to jumpstart the economy and get Americans back to work. If if your Governor still has your state lockeddown call him or her to demand that the economy of your state be reopened.

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.

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.

The Media Bias Against Florida's Conservative Governor Ron DeSantis

New York has 10 times the coronaviru deaths that Florida has. With the Democrat icon showing so badly the liberal media claims the notion that there is a blue-state and a red-state way of attacking the virus is absurd. We might agree, if the Leftwing media was not giving New York's Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo a pass for his disastrous results while pillorying Florida's conservative Governor Ron DeSantis for his success, not only in saving lives, but getting Floridians back to work.
