Assault on America, Day 78: If husband and wife can’t agree on Trump, how will America survive?

Like today’s opinion polls, the idiosyncratic and contradictory marriage of Kellyanne and George Conway fails to reveal why the Trump presidency remains so polarizing for Americans. Time passes and opinions change, yet the country seems strangely set on their impressions of Donald Trump.

Assault on America, Day 77: Nutty court packing & big spending schemes doom 2020 Democrats

Polls show Trump’s maintained the modest job favorability bump he enjoyed after his SOTU address. If Democrats in Congress and on the campaign trail go to extremes the president won’t need to worry about setting distinctions. Reality is a tall enough hurdle for Democrats to clear.

Assault on America, Day 76: Beto, Biden and leftwing Dem nutjobs make best case for Trump

Democrat presidential primary debates should prove fascinating spectacles with each candidate vying for their own slice of party pie. When the dust settles it’s possible no one will command the respect of Democrat voters, placing President Trump in very good position heading into next year.

Assault on America, Day 75: Trump veto signals no retreat on vow to drain the putrid DC swamp

President Trump’s excellent political instincts were proven correct as he saved his first veto for the crucial immigration issue. Congress’s decades-long stalling on the wall pushed the problem into crisis mode. Trump’s leadership showed Republicans how it’s done -- but will they learn?

Assault on America, Day 72: GOP & Trump need women--and everyone else--to win big in 2020

Debate continues as to the best way to expand the GOP’s “big tent,” but it definitely won’t come through pandering to any specific demographic. Republicans would gain a lot by following President Trump’s example and standing for something and keeping promises. The rest will follow nicely.

Assault on America, Day 71: In Bernie and AOC’s Democrat party, radical is the new normal

If the definition of “radical” is “a person who advocates thorough or complete political or social reform; a member of a political party or part of a party pursuing such aims”, it definitely describes today’s Democrats. The Bernie and AOC-led opposition is for real -- and playing for keeps.

Assault on America, Day 70: Why Democrats’ shunning of Fox News will cost them in 2020

Both parties are guilty of pandering to their own bases, but Democrats consistently shy away from challenges to their strange belief systems. Hillary Clinton lost in 2016 because she arrogantly assumed she’d win; 2020 Democrats seem destined to repeat the same mistake.

Assault on America, Day 69: Does anyone think giving 16-year-olds a vote is a good idea?

Liberals and Democrats love listening to today’s youth unless they’re saying something non-politically correct and supportive of President Trump and traditional values. Giving 16-year-olds the vote fulfills no useful purpose; it’s just another leftist scheme to take over the world.

Assault on America, Day 68: ‘Obama University’ to build millions of Barack and Michelle clones

The fact Obama appears to be reemerging ahead of next year’s election shows how desperate Democrats are to recall a time when they controlled everything. Obama’s “university for social change” is a scary prospect indeed. There’s a lot more damage these people can do.

Assault on America, Day 65: Turmoil in today’s Dem party, where common sense is apostacy

Things are quickly changing for today’s Democrats. One minute they’re rallying behind the old guard (represented by Nancy Pelosi and creepy “Chucky” Schumer), the next they’re clinging to young radicals like AOC. Who will prevail in the struggle to control the liberal party’s future?

Gallup: Trump Economic Approval Highest Yet at 56 Percent

The Gallup Organization reports Trump's rating for handling the economy, 56 percent, is the highest of his presidency and the highest of his approval ratings on any of 14 domestic and foreign issues tested in the latest Gallup poll. Americans' approval of his handling of unemployment is nearly as high, at 54 percent.

Assault on America, Day 64: Presidents need a congressional check, not an abusive impediment

Some would argue it’s about time we had a national conversation on executive powers, but the Democrats’ resolution blocking Trump’s emergency declaration isn’t the right occasion. Senator Rand Paul isn’t wrong very often, but this is one position he’d be wise to reconsider.

Dumb And/or Dishonest Liberals Insult Your Intelligence

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Let’s be clear – Donald Trump has no moral obligation to torpedo the slow but steady and real progress he has made with North Korea towards avoiding a war that would send tens of thousands of American soldiers home in boxes simply because the media wants a gotcha moment on camera. Diplomacy is not pretty, and it must pain the Warmbier family, but there are tens of thousands of American lives at stake and if Trump is willing to swallow hard and say what he must to save them, then God bless him for it.

Assault on America, Day 63: Only in Democrat- land is calling someone ‘decent’ a downer

Common sense indicates President Trump doesn’t have much to fear from Joe Biden or any challenger in 2020. Whenever a presidential hopeful must explain why he called someone “decent” to his potential backers, it’s not a harbinger of electability. Such is the dilemma of Democrats today.

Assault on America, Day 62: Impeachment and primary challenges won’t derail Trump train

Democrats and #NeverTrumpers dream about impeachment and possible primary challenges -- and other means -- to end the Trump presidency early (such as through the ill-defined 25th Amendment). It will take much more than hope to take Trump down; the voters will decide.

Assault on America, Day 61: On Trump and Kim, saying something nice is the best way to win

Results-oriented Donald Trump no doubt couldn’t care less what his detractors said about his recently concluded meeting with Kim Jong Un. Trump indicated the process will take a long time and it’s good they’re still on positive personal terms. Trump’s right, and history backs him up.

Assault on America, Day 58: Democrats won’t get away with abusing the blue slip & filibuster

When Democrats can’t legitimately win on the merits of an issue, they cook the rules to prevail regardless. It’s long past time Republican leaders reformed the process to function more like the Founding Fathers intended, and tyranny of the minority will finally become a relic of the past.

Toward sublime and 'Nobel' leadership

L. Scott Lingamfelter, Washington Times

The United States should — only after North Korea agrees to U.S. denuclearization terms, an expanded DMZ, the incentive package tied to verifiable nuclear disarmament, and the joint commission — establish full diplomatic relations with North Korea. The planets are aligned now with a U.S. president determined to lead, an international community weary of a nuclearized North Korea, and a Kim Jong-un seeking to survive. Who knows, if Trump succeds in his mission, this may turn out to be quite “Nobel.”

Donald Trump, The Peace President

Whether President Trump’s approach of dangling peace and prosperity in front of North Korea’s Kim Jong Un will achieve long-term peace remains to be seen, but it is certain that over the past 50-years the foreign policy establishment’s efforts in Korea have failed, where Trump has stopped the missile launches and nuclear tests. Americans should give peace, and President Trump a chance.

Assault on America, Day 57: Democrats’ views on climate & abortion expose contempt for kids

As days go by it’s increasingly evident Democrats willingly deny common sense to further their designs on climate and partial birth abortion. It’s all part of the radicalization of their agenda and shines a bright spotlight on President Trump’s mission to return America to a sense of sanity.
