Assault on America, Day 454: Bunker-down Joe and the jealous media default on coronavirus

Amidst the 24/7 news cycle on coronavirus, not many people care about nor hear what Joe Biden has to say about leadership and the appropriate response to the situation. Biden could’ve easily taken a supportive role on the issue, but he didn’t. In contrast, Trump looks presidential and in command. And voters recognize the difference.

Assault on America, Day 453: Joe Biden’s China syndrome will sink his shaky presidential hopes

There’s lots to complain about China in these difficult times, and as Mark Twain famously said about the weather, no one was doing anything about it. That all changed when Donald Trump ran for and won the presidency, and he’ll continue to hold Chinese leaders accountable for their complicity in the coronavirus pandemic.

Assault on America, Day 450: In COVID-19’s wake, fiscal sanity is demanded, not requested

States have the leeway to set their own guidelines on dealing with the coronavirus conundrum. Sooner or later the nation’s economic health must be given its due consideration, largely because Congress can’t keep assembling multi-trillion-dollar aid packages. The future has arrived and we can’t afford to dismiss it.

Assault on America, Day 449: Arrogant Dems ignored the ‘duty to rescue’ at their own peril

There is a duty to aid citizens when circumstances place them in positions they can’t control and they’ll suffer grave harm if actions aren’t done quickly to rescue them. In most cases help is a common sense call, something Democrats are either too arrogant -- or too selfish -- to understand. Americans are watching closely.

Assault on America, Day 448: Has coronavirus forever altered Trump’s approach to politics?

Time and circumstances will reveal whether President Trump’s new, more restrained public persona lasts throughout the coming presidential campaign. Through necessity, politics has been placed on hold until the coronavirus runs its due course, which leaves a lot of folks wondering if we might’ve seen the last of the “old” Trump.

Assault on America, Day 447: Don’t let elites use coronavirus as the means to ruin America

There is no simple solution to the dilemma of who should be helped first in the battle against COVID-19. Many need aid and there’s only so much to go around. We should resist the ruling class’s drive to deprive us of our liberties, while being especially vigilant to preserve what made America great in the first place.

Assault on America, Day 446: Three factors that will determine the winner of the 2020 election

The coronavirus panic has forced America into uncharted waters and no one can say for sure where we’re headed. One thing for certain is the crisis will end and people will go on with their lives, perhaps with a new perspective. This year’s election is a long way away, with lots still to talk and argue about.

Assault on America, Day 443: Bernie will never be POTUS and neither will dopey Joe Biden

My grandfather was (almost) right that there are no sure things in life, but we know for certain Bernie Sanders won’t be president -- and that Joe Biden will struggle to maintain a viable public presence headed into the fall campaign. With COVID-19 raging for the near term, all bets are off. Who could be more sure of anything?

Assault on America, Day 442: COVID-19 vaults illegal immigration to the top of 2020 debate

With the Democrats’ primary race ending and the presidential election approaching, Americans will now begin focusing less on personalities and electability and more on the candidates’ issue positions. Joe Biden won’t win many converts by promising to go easy on illegal aliens and vastly curtailing energy exploration. It just makes Trump’s job easier.

Assault on America, Day 441: COVID-19 + pols + media = taxpayers on the dole for $850 billion

We could not have foreseen what’s happened with the coronavirus up to this point and there’s no way to predict where events will go from here. The media pressured the political class into reacting/overreacting to a serious threat and now we’re preparing to dump hundreds of billions into it. What holds the future?

Assault on America, Day 440: Seeking a slight glimpse of future hope among coronavirus doom

There aren’t many moments where we receive an opportunity to glimpse the future, but the coronavirus pandemic appears to be one of them. Whether we’re ever able to “go back” is another question entirely. There’s no stuffing the genie back in the bottle on this one -- and we’ll need to live with the consequences when things die down.

Assault on America, Day 439: Anticlimactic Joe & Bernie debate show draws an audience of zero

For better or worse, the Democrat race is over… and again, this was likely the final 2020 candidates’ debate. In this sense, the American public was the “winner.” The next time we see Joe Biden on the debate stage, he’ll be opposite President Donald Trump. Anyone (besides the media) think Biden will come across as the better man then?

Assault on America, Day 436: Questions debate moderators should ask Bernie & Joe on Sunday

With the Democrat presidential race all-but over, Sunday’s “debate” is bound to feel anti-climactic and like a waste of time. Perhaps the only yet to be determined matter is whether Biden can keep his wits together for two hours -- and whether Bernie finally takes off the gloves regarding Joe’s massive corruption deficit.

Assault on America, Day 435: Coronavirus will neither help nor hinder Trump’s reelection drive

Coronavirus is a serious matter and President Trump is giving it its due consideration. Life must go on and Trump’s reaction to the fears of normal people is in line with what any leader should do. If the president went around acting scared, it would only make things worse. Be thankful for competent political leadership at times like these.

Assault on America, Day 434: To Democrats, everything and nothing sounds good at one time

Regardless of the reasons, Democrats are pretty much stuck with Joe Biden -- and all that comes with him -- for their party nominee. The 2020 field’s women candidates didn’t lose because of their gender; they lost because they weren’t good choices and the establishment first sought to take care of their own.

Assault on America, Day 433: Biden momentum surge destined to drown in sea of hypocrisy

The past couple weeks demonstrated how quickly things change in the world of politics and how voter attitudes often shift without explanation. One thing that will likely remain the same is President Trump’s hold on the loyalty of conservatives and Republicans. Democrats can’t match it, regardless of who wins their nomination.

Assault on America, Day 432: Jealousy and envy of Trump won’t heal Democrats’ deep divisions

Democrats envy Donald Trump, and the jealousy doesn’t end there. Liberals see a Republican Party united like never before and the daunting prospect of battling an incumbent president who’s (literally) survived trial after trial. There are dark clouds on the horizon and Democrats are justifiably terrified.

Assault on America, Day 429: Would Donald Trump really dump Mike Pence for Nikki Haley?

Just because the Democrat establishment was able to pull off a miracle and save Joe Biden’s candidacy from the political trash heap doesn’t grant them license to start giving President Trump advice – or to predict that he’s about to dump Mike Pence for Nikki Haley. Time and events are on Trump’s side – and he knows it.

Assault on America, Day 428: Resurrected Joe Biden ain’t any better than the one left for dead

Joe Biden just ain’t that smart. And voting against Trump won’t be enough, especially since Harry Reid tipped Democrats’ (empty) hand early – all they have is racism and fear mongering going for them. That’s Hillary redux, not a winning message. Democrats very well could regret bringing Joe back from the political dead.

Assault on America, Day 427: Democrats forget Joe Biden is/was an awful (and old) candidate

With the Democrat nominating contest dwindled down to two viable contenders, the chances of party voters settling on one clear leader before their convention aren’t great. The effort to stop Bernie Sanders will continue but it’ll take something akin to a miracle to make either of them look as strong and vibrant as Trump.
