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.

Assault on America, Day 539: Democrats and the media play ‘unity’ card, but it’s a huge bluff

Democrats did their darndest to ruin President Trump’s Tulsa rally, but if you listened to the content and themes of the speech, it still was a huge success. The opposition party may depict themselves as “unified,” but just below the surface is a seething cauldron of anger and disagreement. It’s only a matter of time before it explodes into something more sinister.

Assault on America, Day 538: Do Democrats still want to swap Andrew Cuomo for Joe Biden?

There haven’t been many bright spots in the political realm lately, but one was when Gov. Andrew Cuomo fell out of favor with the adoring establishment media. Common sense doesn’t always matter in our politically correct modern society, but numbers still carry some weight. Cuomo failed to safeguard his constituents, and the truth caught up with him.

Assault on America, Day 537: Trump rocks in Tulsa, Biden still missing in (political) action

As demonstrated at the Trump rally on Saturday night, the president’s supporters will vote for him because they see his accomplishments and back his agenda. Biden’s people will choose him because they’re against Trump. The distinction will reveal itself on Election Day. In the meantime, where the heck is Grampa Joe?

Assault on America, Day 534: Millions rejoice as 2020 Trump campaign relaunches in Tulsa

Saturday marks yet another milestone in an already beyond-belief 2020 campaign. President Donald Trump will speak to an assembled crowd of tens of thousands in Tulsa, but his message will be transmitted to millions more across the country. The left has had its say of late -- it’s time to counterpunch. Expect Trump to come out fighting.

Assault on America, Day 533: NFL players, Don’t lecture us on the meaning of the American flag

On behalf of other like-minded Americans, I am “raising awareness” of our views. “Raising awareness” is big in the “woke” world, isn’t it? See you on the field. Or not. And we’ll be saluting the flag because it represents all of us as one nation, under God, indivisible with JUSTICE for all.

Assault on America, Day 532: Will GOP ruling class try to replace Trump ahead of November?

With differing opinions of late as to how President Trump’s handled the coronavirus pandemic as well as the earth-shattering riots and protests, it’s difficult to see how either party unifies ahead of the all-important national election. Establishment Republicans will never be happy with Trump; hard core leftists won’t accept Biden. What will tomorrow bring?

Assault on America, Day 531: Once beautiful Pacific Northwest now capital to nihilists & thugs

Seattle may be the latest example of a once proud American city that’s become ungovernable and unlivable, but it won’t be the last unless political leaders stand up and put an end to the nonsense. Survey after survey shows citizens want a much stronger law enforcement presence. Are “autonomous zones” here to stay?

Assault on America, Day 530: News flash: Dems won’t defund the police, but slavery reparations?

These days it certainly isn’t easy to tell what Michelle Obama and other Democrats are truly after, since pleas to completely defund police departments aren’t likely to succeed. Digging just below the surface, there appears to be a whole host of possible motivations, most of which involve multiple dollar signs and more white liberal groveling to the masters of racial politics.

Assault on America, Day 527: Media’s best friends: swamp things and misfits bashing Trump

The media’s suggestion that Trump would lose support because certain well-known wishy-washy establishment Republicans announce their opposition to his reelection is way off base. The president will rise -- or fall -- based on his ability to rouse his base and bring enough independents along to prevail. There’s still plenty of time to get it done.

Assault on America, Day 526: George Mercer and the true meaning of protesting injustice

In these most challenging of times, Democrats promote racial tribalism to end “divisiveness” but only succeed in driving people farther apart. Perhaps it’s because of a lack of governing agenda or a strong and puerile need to defeat President Trump in November, they’ll go to extreme lengths to mask a sham. Here’s thinking most Americans won’t buy it.

Assault on America, Day 525: Democrats bet on social justice warriors, Trump sides with police

November’s election is still far off and no doubt much will happen between now and then to influence the ultimate outcome. Wagering on a Biden landslide victory doesn’t seem to be the prudent thing to do at this point, but if a Democrat offers to put his or her money where their mouth is, you’d be a fool not to take it.

Assault on America, Day 524: It’s all race all the time for Grampa Joe’s running mate vetting

Recent events have placed further restrictions on who Joe Biden can realistically select as his running mate. With today’s race-is-everything fixation in the Democrat party, the nominee simply can’t go against the liberal grain and choose someone like Amy Klobuchar or Elizabeth Warren. Biden’s built his own prison -- now he must serve time in it.

Assault on America, Day 523: A House Divided, two Americas and the plight of culture in 2020

It’s never been clearer that there are two Americas in 2020. The side that believes in the political, judicial and legislative process had better rise up and take back the initiative and narrative from the burn-it-all-down leftist faction. A house divided against itself cannot stand. Abraham Lincoln, where are you now?
