Assault on America, Day 355: Nothing new in Washington equates to arguments at the table

In “normal” times people wouldn’t allow politics or other extra-family subjects to ruin Christmas celebrations, but these days aren’t typical and Americans are angry about what’s going on in the nation’s capital. President Trump recently told Greta Thunberg to “chill” -- the same could be said for the rest of the world.

Assault on America, Day 352: Democrat sleep-aid candidates do L.A., and the nation nods off

This debate won’t move the needle much, if at all. If impeachment reaches the senate -- and that’s a big if at this point -- it could conceivably affect the outcomes in the early states. Christmas is almost here. The biggest gift Americans deserve is a rest from the political backbiting. Will they get it?

Handicapping the 2024 (!) Presidential Election

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

Even though he won’t be running, the specter of Trump will loom heavily over this election as well. He has changed everything, at least for the short run. Overly traditional candidates will seem boring, especially to the omnipresent mainstream media who may have hated Trump (hate him right now) but live off his drama like parasitic barnacles on a whale. The electorate, too, has been conditioned for something exciting. Some will say they will yearn for the bland after years of this nonstop Trump drama, but I think not. In our competitive, techno-driven world, the bland fades quickly away, deserving or not. Will the two-party system still be with us in a functional way for 2024?

Assault on America, Day 351: Dem presidential wannabes battle Christmas and DC for notice

The only thing we know for certain is seven Democrat presidential candidates will take the stage tonight in Los Angeles. They’ll be a poor distraction away from the fireworks in Washington and holiday preparations Americans are making all across the country. This is definitely one scenario where “Nothing to see here” has a lot of resonance.

Assault on America, Day 350: Trump and Fox News set records, Democrats help them do it

Records are made to be broken. As the public grows increasingly impatient with the false and fruitless Democrat impeachment narrative, expect President Trump to be tweeting and many, many people tuning into Fox News to receive an alternative point-of-view from what they’re getting elsewhere. Will 2020 be a record-setting year?

Assault on America, Day 349: Joe Biden’s one-term pledge makes him seem even weaker

No one should give up before they start and the truism equally applies to old washed-up and truth-challenged politicians like Joe Biden. The fact the Democrat frontrunner’s letting it be known he’ll serve only one term should theoretically help his campaign; but it also makes him look like a quitter from the get-go.

Assault on America, Day 345: Ready for ‘Live! Live! Live!’ or ‘Die! Die! Die!’ in the senate?

There isn’t much funny about impeaching a president and watching him being tried before the stodgy senate, but Democrats have ruined any pretense of seriousness in this current witch hunt. Senators will decide soon whether -- and who -- to call as witnesses. Trump will survive, but the nation won’t forgive.

Assault on America, Day 344: Pelosi choked; the Schiff-show should’ve never been hatched

When the impeachment matter shifts from the House to the Senate there’s a different set of folks guiding the ship and the American public will hear entirely new arguments regarding the constitutional political process. Like an army that holds its artillery for the final stages of battle, Republicans are gearing up to return fire. And it should be spectacular.

Assault on America, Day 343: Would civility survive a post-impeachment Dem convention?

Democrats won’t get a majority if the impeachment effort reaches the senate, just as Republicans didn’t get one against Bill Clinton in 1999. Yet still they persist with the ruse. Some people never learn. Liberals should be careful about calling for something to be “burnt down,” since the ones feeling the heat might just be them very soon.

Assault on America, Day 342: Pelosi and Biden rage bares Democrat fright over Trump economy

Whatever the reason, it’s surprising and sad that Democrats appear to be coming unglued at this critical time in our nation’s history. Impeachment was never meant to be taken casually, but Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden and most other party members have passed the point of no return. What will set them off next?

Assault on America, Day 341: LGBTQ lynch mob lambasts Mayor Pete over Salvation Army

It's a sign of the times that President Donald Trump will likely be impeached (not convicted) and cultural icons like the Salvation Army, Chick-fil-A and the Hallmark Channel feel intense pressure to bend to the whims of the intolerant left. All good people can do is resist -- how’s that for restoring a positive connotation to the word?

Assault on America, Day 338: For Democrats, ‘diversity’ is the bug that’s eating them alive

Kamala Harris’s hasty withdrawal from the 2020 Democrat presidential race further exposed the party’s weakness vis-à-vis President Trump. The field’s lack of “diversity” is only one problem to overcome when competing against a strong opponent on his turf and trailing badly in the substance category. Democrats are in big trouble.

Assault on America, Day 337: Trump makes NATO ‘go Dutch,’ allies whine. Americans cheer

“Going Dutch” with friends isn’t a bad thing when everyone’s in a good mood, there’s plenty to share and the bank account is full. These are good times in America. Trump’s made a lot of it possible. The American military isn’t for hire, but it’s also not going to be anyone’s sucker either. It’s time Trump’s enemies -- and friends -- realized it.

Assault on America, Day 336: Impeachment, Joe Biden, Pete, Ozzy, and the politics of weirdness

Joe Biden’s strange behavior won’t save him from the scrutiny he’s destined to receive if Democrats choose to put President Trump on trial over his routine conversation with the Ukrainian president. Voters aren’t about to cashier Trump over such trivial deviations from decorum. And the whole gesture threatens to wreck their presidential race, too.

Assault on America, Day 335: Blame the Dem House for Congress’s do-nothing inertia

There is a school of thought suggesting doing less equates to doing more, but it’s not true where the do-nothing U.S. Congress is concerned. The House Democrat majority has had many opportunities to work and pass bills that would eventually become laws, but they weren’t interested in compromise. What’s the result? Gridlock.

Assault on America, Day 334: Democrats should realize a bad candidate isn’t better than none

Unlike Obama, President Trump has shown that a bad decision isn’t superior to none at all. Trump knew if he simply trusted the American people to make their own choices and dissolved the shackles of government oversight, that folks would prosper. Could any of the 2020 Democrats deliver the same? No chance.

I Am Thankful For Many Things, Especially The Things That Make Stupid People Sad

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

At Thanksgiving time, we should reflect upon the blessings we enjoy, and I enjoy nothing quite as much as stupid people who are miserable. There are a lot of stupid people who are miserable right now, and this is good. The misery stupid people cause themselves should disincentivize future stupidity – with luck, America will be burdened with less stupidity because of it. There’s a lot to be thankful for, and it is right and proper that we be thankful. So here is what we should be especially thankful for at Thanksgiving 2019: The Continuing Humiliation of the Fredocons, Donald Trump, Dogs, Twitter, The impeachment Schiffshow, Economic Prosperity, The Senate and Cocaine Mitch, Chick Fil-A's Coardice and The Salvation Army.

Let’s Say A Thanksgiving Prayer For 2020

By electing Donald Trump, we, and our country, in effect survived the long harsh winter of the Obama years, but there’s no guarantee that we will succeed in our goal of governing America according to limited government constitutional conservative principles. To do that will require many more years of hard work.

Assault on America, Day 329: Does protesting climate change count as a Thanksgiving prayer?

It’s a product of our strange and upside-down world that disgruntled Ivy League students and dolts like Colin Kaepernick draw media coverage just by nature of their own special brand of deviancy. These fools pretend to “care” about others and the causes they champion when it’s really all about selfish desires and dearth of character. Sad.

Assault on America, Day 328: Impeachment bluff about to explode in Pelosi’s unfortunate hands

The Democrats’ phony impeachment pursuit goes way beyond the mere matter of castigating a president and removing him from office. The stakes are high for everyone in Democrat-land, especially Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Will she and her caucus really throw the impeachment switch? We’ll soon know the answer.
