50 years ago, a young woman—and a presidential candidacy—died

50 years ago, on July 19 or 20, Mary Jo Kopechne died in a submerged car. There was no “me too” movement 50 years ago.  Americans were not as aware as we are today, in the Epstein era, of the pervasive moral corruption of their elites.  So her killer, Democrat Senator Edward Kennedy,  went on to a long career in the D.C. Swamp, being hailed by fellow Democrats as “the lion of the Senate.”

Census Citizenship Fight Shows Trump Team’s Greatest Weakness

President Trump has an instinctive feel for the inflection points in today’s political and cultural battles, but personnel is policy, and Attorney General Barr is only one man; he needs a cadre of victory-minded conservative lawyers to handle the day-to-day legal work upon which victory or defeat of the Trump agenda hinges.

Assault on America, Day 198: Anniversary of Apollo 11 tests today’s wimpy liberal mindset

The fiftieth anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing represents both a testament to human ingenuity and a challenge to resurrect the spirit that allowed us to reach for the stars. In wasn’t a partisan achievement, it was an American one. Unfortunately, those days are long gone…will they ever return?

The MSM And Four Anti-American Congresswomen

Being an “American” requires more than simply being born here or otherwise qualifying for United States citizenship – it requires allegiance to a certain and quite definite set of principles set forth in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Representative Omar and her posse all took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, but we see no evidence that they and their media defenders actually hold any allegiance to its principles.

Prospects Of War With Iran Heating Up… Again

Americans might justifiably ask what does the hijacking of a Panamanian-flagged vessel operating out of the UAE and the British seizure of an Iranian vessel operating in violation of international sanctions have to do with us? The answer is that President Trump has approved an operation in which U.S. warships act as sentinels at the entrance to the Persian Gulf.

Assault on America, Day 197: Will Joe Biden’s fib obsession lead to calls for Hillary to run?

Whether or not Hillary Clinton eventually decides to enter the 2020 presidential race, Joe Biden’s fate depends on how long he maintains the appearance of viability. Once Democrat voters see through the former Obama VP’s ruse the end will come quickly. Will Hillary then pick up the pieces?

Democrats Try Extra-Constitutional Plan To Revive ERA

Radical feminists and Far Left Democrats are trying to revive the ERA without going back to Congress and passing a new proposed constitutional amendment. Democrat Rep.

Assault on America, Day 196: How Trump sidestepped Paul Ryan’s lessons on government

President Trump’s battle against the Washington elites is just getting started, and if the ruling class gets its way, he’ll not only lose the fight, he’ll be shamed and drummed out of town. Paul Ryan is relieved to be away from it all -- here’s hoping more establishmentarians follow him into retirement.

Trump Is Just Saying What Regular Americans Think

As is often the case when Trump drops a Twitter bomb on Democrats, middle America seems to agree with the President. The consensus about Rep. Ilhan Omar we found during a foray to our favorite shooting range was “don’t let the screen door hit her in the butt” and the President’s tweets criticizing her were liked over 168,000 times with comments equally as brutal.

Leftwing Media Glorify ANTIFA And Terrorist Who Firebombed ICE Facility

The difficulty in learning more about Willem Van Spronsen, the ANTIFA terrorist who attacked the ICE facility in Tacoma, Washington should really surprise no one, given that CNN and other Leftwing media have a record of supporting and even glorifying ANTIFA, including airing a favorable program in which ANTIFA terrorist Willem Van Spronsen appeared.

Assault on America, Day 195: Today’s warped Dems wish everyone was a needy illegal alien

No matter how much we wish it, the illegal immigration issue isn’t going away. In today’s toxic political environment, the only thing that can be done is to try and plug the enormous gaps in the balky border system -- or to vote in politicians who see reality and crave to do something about it.
