Assault on America, Day 422: Dems’ coronavirus hype is climate change with a Chinese face

Some people need a reason to worry about something and that certainly appears to be the case where the coronavirus is concerned. With any number of more pervasive and lethal problems all around us, it just doesn’t make sense to scare the bejesus out of people for no legitimate reason. It’s all about politics, isn’t it?

President Trump Stop Sharing Intelligence With Democrat Leaker Adam Schiff

The recent leaks from the intelligence briefing on Russian meddling in the 2020 presidential election are an indication that leaking has become untenable ever since Schiff took over as House Intelligence Committee chairman in January 2019. We urge President Trump to cut off Schiff's access to classified intelligence to end Schiff's use of secret intelligence as a political weapon.

Assault on America, Day 421: R’s and D’s bet on boost in voter turnout in 2020. Will it happen?

It’s curious that in 2020, the establishment media doesn’t have to work hard to hype the upcoming election. Should the contest eventually boil down to Trump versus Sanders, there will be plenty of people participating who previously didn’t give a squat about politics. Who will come out ahead?

Assault on America, Day 420: Did Democrats trigger a civil war in South Carolina again?

South Carolinians vote on Saturday and then on Super Tuesday, March 3, 1,617 total delegates will be awarded in 14 state primaries. Democrat voters will determine the winners and losers of party debates, and if the past is any indication, Bernie Sanders offers the most of what they like to see. Is America watching?

Assault on America, Day 419: Sanders and Dems bank on youthful ignorance to fuel campaign

As the Democrat presidential race moves towards the South Carolina primary and Super Tuesday on March 3, the non-Bernie Sanders candidates recognize they’re in a tight spot. Time is running out to alter the course of the contest, so expect another bash-on-Bernie fest in the Palmetto State debate tonight.

Mike Bloomberg’s Technocratic Threat

Rich Lowry, National Review

Trump, whatever his personal and institutional failings, is backstopped by a conservative legal movement that has worked with him to pump originalist judges through the Senate. These judges will remain a bulwark of conservative constitutionalism long after Trump has departed the scene. Bloomberg’s technocratic instincts, in contrast, run with the grain of contemporary progressivism. There will be no checks on his natural tendency toward unilateral rule through the administrative state. Democrats may yet come to believe that only Mike Bloomberg can save the country — but what he emphatically won’t be saving is a view of the government as circumscribed by an old, yet sacrosanct, Constitution.

Assault on America, Day 418: Budding Democrat civil war will end in mass casualties, no survivors

The beneficiary of the Democrats’ nomination struggle is President Trump himself. It doesn’t take a genius to see Trump is drawing strength from the Democrats’ unfortunate situation and the coming months should be truly entertaining – and revealing. Pass the popcorn and soda; this is better than a matinee at the movie house.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

Assault on America, Day 407: Search for Dem White Knight becomes forlorn recovery mission

Logic says Democrats’ dissatisfaction with their presidential field will continue until party voters settle on a frontrunner, but that’s not likely to happen as long as the candidates are as divided as they are now. With no “White Knight” on the horizon, the party’s hopelessness will only intensify. Trump is looking terrific by comparison.

Donald Trump: The Great Uniter

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

When have Republicans ever exhibited the home-team enthusiasm they demonstrated during that State of the Union address and the post-acquittal gathering in the East Room? When have working- and middle-class voters shown such support for a Republican as they do for Trump at his mammoth rallies? Heading for November, this is a party united. But not only is Trump the great uniter of the GOP, he is the great uniter of Democrats. Every Democrat but three in the House voted to impeach and remove him. Every Democrat in the Senate voted to convict and expel him from office and prevent his ever running again. We were divided long before Trump got here, and we will remain so long after he departs.

Assault on America, Day 406: NH greases Bernie’s socialist wheel, establishment fumes

What a mess. The New Hampshire Democrat primary went absolutely as predicted. Sanders comes away with the undisputed win he was deprived of in Iowa and the “moderates” are left wondering what a Bernie-bro fueled fall candidacy might look like. Donald Trump won the day without even being on the ballot -- again.

Assault on America, Day 405: Romney, Hogg, and all of DC’s liars, sleazebags and opportunists

It's no secret that Washington is chock full of liars, sleazebags and opportunists, but what Mitt Romney did last week ranks up there with the most underhanded, publicity seeking stunts of all time. President Trump will succeed despite the presence of people like Romney. Who will history remember?

Assault on America, Day 404: Biden’s facade candidacy implodes from lack of real substance

Impeachment will likely end up killing Biden’s final run for president, but there wasn’t much of a foundation for his candidacy to begin with. All along Joe chose to defend his son against some pretty obvious charges of political favoritism. It’s a choice he made… and the man chose his family over being president. So be it.

Assault on America, Day 402: Democrat NH debate -- Anger and Racism ain’t gonna do it

New Hampshire Democrats head to the polls in a few days and they’ll need to decide between the emerging party socialistic trend -- as embodied by Bernie Sanders -- and the establishment status quo (Joe Biden?). Pete Buttigieg is a possible alternative to Biden, but he didn’t inspire much confidence on Friday night. It’s certainly not an easy political dilemma for Granite State voters.

Assault on America, Day 401: Are Trump’s fans as tired of winning as Democrats are of losing?

Even a good many Democrats would admit it’s been a rough go of it lately, with President Donald Trump not only surviving their best shots, he’s actually making inroads with voters who heretofore wouldn’t consider choosing Republicans. Which begs the question: Are Trump’s fans as tired of winning as Democrats are of losing?
