Assault on America, Day 566: Campaign switch in leaders isn’t a retreat, it’s a redeployment

Last week’s Trump campaign personnel switch could turn out to be a wise move if the new leadership is able to steer the president back towards a message-based approach to defining his opponent while touting his own accomplishments. Four years ago, Trump ran on a platform of Making America Great Again. There’s no reason to abandon the concept now.

Assault on America, Day 565: Trump must pound the facts, law and emotional appeal to win

The 2020 election will be heavily influenced by the coronavirus pandemic, but Americans want to see the big picture as well. President Trump has a lot going for him in the issue realm if he would simply drop the personal stuff and focus like a laser on promoting policies that make people realize the world’s not coming to an end.

Assault on America, Day 562: Brace yourself for 2020’s unconventional party conventions

With one month to go until the parties’ political conventions, it’s still very much up in the air as to what they’ll look like and who will be permitted to attend and participate. Democrats and Republicans take different approaches to dealing with the CCP virus pandemic and its possible threats, and this will be no typical year for political theater.

Assault on America, Day 561: Dems can’t steal MAGA, how about MAO (Make America Obama)?

Democrats don’t have an agenda apart from constantly pecking at Trump, pandering to their leftist/racist constituents or proposing the destruction of any remaining vestiges of capitalism in favor of big government boondoggles that will never work. The Green New Deal? Scary. Maybe their new campaign theme should be, “Make America Obama,” a.k.a., MAO.

Assault on America, Day 560: Listless GOP on verge of letting Dems change American history

A loss in November’s election might not spell the conclusion of Donald Trump’s time as president -- he could run again in four years -- but the country will be a very different place in 2024 if Republicans don’t stand up now, support their candidate and enthusiastically champion America’s cause. Democrats never rest; the GOP is too often caught napping.

Assault on America, Day 559: Robert Redford, Joe Biden & the Way We Were in the DC swamp

Unity is hard to come by in the United States today, and it certainly won’t be realized by electing Grampa Joe Biden to serve as the next president. The former vice president has spent a virtual half-century at the seat of power in the DC swamp and hasn’t accomplished much in his entire life. Where’s the empathy, Joe? Anyone? Anyone?

Assault on America, Day 558: How Kanye West could decide the outcome of the 2020 election

We don’t know if Kanye West was serious about running for president, but it would make for a very odd addition to an election that’s already off the charts strange as it is. Perhaps West could stir Joe Biden into taking positions on issues that concern black voters beyond the typical Democrat race panders. School choice would definitely get Democrats nervous.

Assault on America, Day 555: Seeking a cure for America’s addiction to systemic liberalism

There’s little doubt systemic liberalism exists in many parts of America today, particularly in large cities, the logical result of politicians with good intentions but insufficient wisdom to govern effectively. Radical separatist groups such as Black Lives Matter have altered the landscape of American politics -- and voters must wise-up before it’s too late.

Assault on America, Day 554: Are leftists using Biden as a Trojan Horse for a true believer?

Time will tell whether Grampa Joe Biden’s candidacy is serving as a sham intended to sneak a leftist vice-presidential candidate into the Oval Office without having been elected to the position. With the Democrat nominee-to-be demonstrating more and more signs of mental incapacity, something’s got to give -- and very soon.

Assault on America, Day 553: Trump touts a Garden of Heroes, Biden counters with racism

President Trump’s idea to create a “National Garden of American Heroes” was a stroke of brilliance for a lagging campaign that needed a new and fresh rallying point after months of health scare panic and political violence. Joe Biden can’t hope to match Trump’s positive message of reverence for all of American history. Trump is back on the right path.

A Very Uncivil War Between Republicans and Democrats

Craig Shirley, CNS News

These are still the tactics of the Democrats. Demonize and collectivize. Tear down and destroy all that stands in opposition. For as long as these Jacobins are indulged, they will push further and further until they are at our very doors. Disagree? Just ask that couple in St. Louis who found the slovenly, filthy mob at their door and had to use firearms to defend their home and personhood. Good for them. We need more individuals of courage. A quote by Malcolm X summed up the difference between the two parties: "If someone puts their hands on you, make sure they never put their hands on anybody else again."

Assault on America, Day 552: Americans get nowhere by taking media version of new normal

It has indeed been a long time since we’ve felt “normal” in America, and there’s a vast difference of opinion as to whether we’ll ever reach that level of comfort again. Truth and facts are always our best allies, but if the mainstream establishment media won’t deliver them, then it’s up to the rest of us to get the word out.

Assault on America, Day 551: What’s Joe doing down there in the basement? We want to know

With the presidential nominee hardly ever seen these days one can only imagine what’s going on behind closed doors in the Biden basement. Be it the renaming of Washington DC or strategizing on how best to keep their man boxed-in for another four months, Democrats will eventually have to face real campaign vetting. Their day of reckoning is coming.

Going Forward Republican Voters Must Demand 3 Things From Their Candidates

Tucker Carlson, Fox News

Tucker Carlson said Republican officeholders are not working hard enough for the American people and, at a moment like this, that's a severe and dangerous problem in a monologue delivered on his FOX News program. "Republican voters should demand three things from their candidates: First is vigorous defense of total equality under the law. Second, they must defend our freedom of speech. And finally, the GOP exists to the serve the interests of normal people. Can Republican politicians change their party? Sure. We just have to make them. They won’t lead. We know that now. That means we have to. They will follow."

Assault on America, Day 547: Founding Fathers vs. Marxist #BlackLivesMatter, a comparison

In normal times, Independence Day was something all Americans would honor if not celebrate. But as has been demonstrated a lot recently, there are many in this country who seek to trash and remove the past. We can’t allow them. The proponents of Black Lives Matter are nothing like the Founding Fathers. Now more than ever, we recognize it.

Assault on America, Day 546: To Democrats, police reform is all about grift and naked politics

Even if times are changing, Democrats in Congress don’t seem to alter their approaches any. If there’s a way to clog up the system with additional bureaucracy and litigation, they’ll find it. The liberal party rejected Senator Tim Scott’s police reform bill purely due to political reasons -- and because the South Carolinian is an African-American Republican. Shameful.

Assault on America, Day 545: No retreating on reopening the economy despite COVID-19 spike

News of a dramatic increase in COVID-19 cases last week was seemingly greeted with relief by elements of the media. If true, the naysayers argue, the economy can’t be reopened, people will still be out of work and government will need to act -- again -- to take care of the unemployed. Then there’s the alternative, which is full speed ahead. Which way should we go?

Assault on America, Day 544: Yes, Obama, we cling to guns, religion and conservative media

Having Democrats blaming conservative media figures for the way things are in the U.S. today isn’t new. Bill Clinton all-but pinned 1995’s Oklahoma City bombing on his conservative critics. Then Hillary coined it “The vast rightwing conspiracy.” President Trump is no fan of the “fake news” media either. The battle for the news narrative will continue.

Assault on America, Day 541: ‘Preacher’ Trump should take a page from 2016, pack substance

President Trump is one of the most talented politicians of the modern age, yet even he could stand to alter his approach to politics from time to time. Elections are always about the future and at his next rally, Trump would do well to talk a lot more about what he intends to do in his second term, something that would reassure more than his already dedicated fans.

Assault on America, Day 540: Crime up in cities, but who to blame? Depends on who you ask

The 2020 election is destined to be one heck of a nasty fight. Who will get the blame for the rancor? Hint: His name starts with Donald and his last name rhymes with “bump.” And it’s not because he’s mean or racist or was a celebrity and regular presence in the tabloids. It’s because Trump represents a complete departure from the status quo. To the elites, that’s bad.
