2018 Elections

Assault on America, Day 35: Filled with purpose, Trump sets proper tone for America in SOTU

President Trump’s Tuesday speech will be picked apart and dissected for hidden meanings in the coming days but it primarily was a call for a political ceasefire so as to accomplish positive results for Americans. In doing so, Trump fulfilled his presidential purpose. Will Democrats do their part?

Assault on America, Day 34: Trump should use SOTU bully pulpit to highlight best of America

Those hoping President Trump’s State of the Union address will help end the current political stalemate between the parties will be sorely disappointed. Nothing short of complete capitulation to Democrat demands would satisfy the opposition. The future is at stake…will people wake up?

Assault on America, Day 33: The Patriots won the Super Bowl; who will triumph on the border wall?

Because the parties are so far apart on the border wall funding dilemma, there’s no easy answer in sight. Democrats won’t consider the arguments in favor of a barrier despite having recognized them in the past. The Super Bowl had a winner and loser -- will it be the same in Congress?

Assault on America, Day 30: Democrats’ nutty ideas doomed to drive Americans back to GOP

Democrats’ lack of “forgiveness” or understanding for average Americans will certainly sound their death knell at the ballot box -- and that’s especially true where the border barrier is concerned. You know how Americans feel about Democrats not achieving anything? Yeah… they’re against it.

Assault on America, Day 29: 2020 Democrats look like a parade of the expended and tired

Democrats aren’t so busy celebrating their “victory” on the border wall funding scrap with President Trump to look ahead to next year and who will try to beat him. The old and tired wing of the party has Joe Biden -- and probably Hillary Clinton… better prepare for a failure of epic proportions.

Assault on America, Day 28: SOTU postponed but Trump will enjoy last word in standoff

It’s a shame the State of the Union address did not go on as planned but President Trump is far from ready to capitulate on border wall funding. Americans will eventually see Speaker Pelosi for the unbalanced partisan hack that she is -- and politics as usual may finally be put to rest.

Assault on America, Day 27: Catatonic GOP leaders own the next shutdown… if there is one

Next to the inability to fund the border wall, Republican leaders’ silence is the single most disappointing aspect of the struggle to control illegal immigration. Appearances mean things -- if McConnell and McCarthy are to join the fray it’s time to fish or cut bait. Fence-sitters lose every time.

Assault on America, Day 26: Media says Trump caved on wall, but it’s Democrats in the dark

Democrats’ intractable position on border wall funding will invariably force President Trump’s hand -- and that’s something Trump relishes. Democrats could be reasonable and accept the president’s compromise offer…or more likely end up with a wall on the border and nothing for their side.

Assault on America, Day 23: Trump and GOPers know without the wall, America soon may fall

President Trump’s new wall slogan may or may not sway the issue in his favor but he’s got to keep Republicans unified and in a fighting spirit on the border wall. Squandering this golden opportunity might not just mean the downfall of the GOP -- it could be the end of America, too.

Assault on America, Day 22: In Democrat-land, the prettier you are the smarter you become

The old saying goes that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but where Democrats are concerned a handsome countenance goes much farther than that. When trying to standout to the grossly uniformed and overly superficial Democrat base it pays to be a looker -- just ask Juan Williams.

Assault on America, Day 21: Long past time for a GOP scorched earth strategy on judge nominees

Try as they might, Democrats can’t delay everything forever, especially if Republicans grow a spine and make them participate in the process -- or they’ll just be steamrolled. Democrats play for keeps…it’s about time Republican leaders acknowledged it and countered fire with fire.

Assault on America, Day 20: Shutdown blame game a mundane prelude to 2020 fireworks show

There’s definitely a chance this government shutdown goes on so long people forget how or why it started and all that’s left are Trump and Democrat leaders squabbling over who’s at fault. Ultimately the American people will decide between them -- and time is on Trump’s side.

Assault on America, Day 19: Trump populism the new ticket to draining the putrid DC swamp

Donald Trump was elected president precisely because he understood what the people wanted -- and promised to give it to them. If this makes him a “populist,” it’s a mantle he’ll wear proudly. Democrats pledge free stuff, Trump offers prosperity and security. What will Americans choose in 2020?

Assault on America, Day 16: Snobby Pelosi SOTU stunt to backfire on grandstanding Dems

If you only saw the political elites you might think the State of our Union really isn’t strong. Under current leadership it’s okay to cancel national assemblies for pathetic personal vendettas and cheap political points, but the American people aren’t fools -- they want border security.

Assault on America, Day 15: RINOs & Dems whine and kvetch while border crisis boils

No amount of excuses RINOs like John Kasich or liberal Democrats make will change the facts on the border -- or anything else of consequence in today’s America. Republican and conservative policies work if they’re tried, something not possible with the DC swamp mentality.

Assault on America, Day 14: What exactly does Congress do, anyway?

The current impasse between congressional Democrats and President Trump was years in the making, primarily because GOP leaders of the recent past didn’t act to resolve it when they had the chance. If Trump gives in now we should only expect the cycle to repeat over and over again.

Assault on America, Day 13: Democrat leaders backed in a corner, held hostage by crazed kooks

Democrat leaders are increasingly being held hostage by the open borders/anti-law enforcement kook fringe of their party. Unlike with President Trump’s position on the government shutdown, there are no good political options for them. The longer it draws out, the more they stand to lose.

Assault on America, Day 12: Since when is David Hogg qualified to assess national emergencies?

Democrats don’t care about law enforcement because if it’s done properly, they’d have no reason for being. Whether it’s enacting unnecessary gun purchasing restrictions or refusing to vote to secure the border, Democrats’ platform tramples on what many Americans hold sacred.

Assault on America, Day 9: DC swamp elites hate temper tantrums -- we should all throw one

“Chucky” Schumer will continue using President Trump’s temperament as an excuse not to act on a host of things, including the border wall, national security and the federal budget. Even if Trump threw a “temper tantrum” it was entirely justified. Maybe us citizens should follow his lead.

Assault on America, Day 8: Chuck & Nancy creep show falls flat before scared national onlookers

As amply demonstrated by Democrat leaders on Tuesday night they can’t even effectively convey their side of the argument, much less win on the merits. Regardless of how people feel about Trump they should separate fact from fiction on the border wall and the government shutdown.
