Bernie Sanders

How Old Is Too Old (to Be President)?

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Joe Biden should have retired a while ago. He's running for president for no discernible reason. Right now we are at a strange moment. The only political candidates who seem to have a shot at the presidency are those septuagenarians -- Biden, Sanders, Warren and Trump. Of those four, three are in pretty decent shape for their age, but Biden is clearly not. Nevertheless, they are all facing a physical gauntlet. Who will pass and go on to win? If it is Sanders or Warren, it will be the end of this great country as we know it. I know that sounds apocalyptic, but I think it's true. So let's pray for Trump to keep going, no matter his habits.

Assault on America, Day 261: Trump knows what he’s doing on Iran. Let’s all be thankful

The president knows history and he’s seen what happens to American leaders who insist on assuming the role of the world’s policeman and food distributor. Sometimes it’s best just to stay out. Thank God Trump appears to have learned this lesson -- and he’ll hold firm against the rest.

Assault on America, Day 260: Authenticity in short supply for Democrat presidential wannabes

Close observation reveals the Democrat presidential candidates are all about the same, which is the reason why they’re having a hard time cutting into Joe Biden’s polling lead. Collectively they’re so far outside the mainstream it’s hard to relate to any of them. Authenticity is in short supply in Democrat-land these days.

Assault on America, Day 259: Donald Trump, judges, and the consequences of electing liberals

Barack Obama famously said “elections have consequences,” and for once, he was right. America and the world would be very different today if Hillary Clinton had beaten Donald Trump in 2016. #NeverTrumpers only seem to care about tone -- do they think a sweet-talking Democrat would solve things?

Assault on America, Day 258: For Trump and the GOP in 2020, it’s School Choice, stupid!

Some political issues are such obvious winners they should be in the forefront of every conservative’s campaign pitch. School choice and responsible stewardship of the environment are two subjects the GOP could use to turn heads instead of permitting the left to control the narrative. Are Republicans paying attention?

Assault on America, Day 257: Mark Sanford run the epitome of a #NeverTrump fool’s errand

One can’t necessarily blame Mark Sanford for challenging Trump in the 2020 GOP primaries, but it’s open to debate whether it’s a net positive or just a fool’s errand. The “conversation” regarding debt and spending needs to take place either way -- and who’s to say Sanford should lead it?

Democrats Debate Issues No One Cares About And Policies No One Wants

Based on the results of recent polls, racist pandering is getting Beto and Mayor Pete exactly nowhere. But lack of measurable impact didn’t drive the candidates away from talking about issues no one cares about and pushing policies no one wants and that was ultimately the overarching theme of last night’s Democrat debate.

Assault on America, Day 254: Houston Democrat debate -- Why do they hate America so much?

Democrats have a heck of a lot of work -- and soul-searching -- to do before settling on a nominee to challenge President Donald Trump in next year’s general election. The confusion and indecision on display in Houston won’t clarify the hard choices for the party’s voters -- if anything, it’s more wide open than ever for America’s liberals.

Branding The Democrats: Trump And Rush Channel Viguerie

When this month’s Limbaugh Letter came out detailing Rush’s views on how President Trump has been branding the Democrats and it read like Rush and President Trump had read Mr. Viguerie’s memos and The Secret To A Trump Landslide. As Rush put it: It’s a marketing miracle!

Assault on America, Day 253: Joe Biden, his stamina, smarts & sanity under scrutiny tonight

Americans will be watching closely as the somewhat winnowed Democrat field gathers tonight in Houston for their third debate of the 2020 nominating cycle. After the program we’ll know a lot more about Joe Biden and his ability to sustain himself for the long haul -- of if he’ll merely reprise his role as the incredible shrinking man.

Assault on America, Day 252: 9/11 reminds us we still have far to go to Deliver Us From Fear

Similar to December 7, 1941, September 11, 2001 will live as a day in infamy for folks who vividly remember the attack and its aftermath. The nineteen terrorists will have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams if Americans allow fear to tear our country apart. We can’t let them.

Assault on America, Day 251: Trump leaves mark on GOP politics, but his agenda will endure

Conservative candidates needn’t fret over the day when Donald Trump leaves office and starts his post-presidency career tweeting and influencing GOP politics. As long as they keep Trump’s popular agenda in mind, they’ll be fine -- and avoid the wrath of The Donald at the same time.

Assault on America, Day 250: AOC, sleepless nights & the Democrat climate change alarmists

The 2020 election is about so much more than just the choice between Donald Trump and a yet-to-be-determined liberal opponent. If Democrats prevail, we’re a lot closer to making something like the Green New Deal a reality…an awfully high price to pay so AOC can get a night’s sleep.

Assault on America, Day 247: Chicken Little media gets it wrong -- Trump will win suburbs

It’s far too early for establishment consultants to predict Trump and the GOP’s congressional candidates will lose the once reliable suburban vote. True, bored media reporters need something to write about, but ultimately American voters will decide. Here’s thinking they’ll choose right.

Assault on America, Day 246: No magic mirror needed to see all 2020 Democrats are extreme

Informed political watchers don’t expect much different from next week’s third Democrat debate. Each candidate is extreme to say the least, a fact that will reveal itself the more they talk. Impeachment, a “Freedom Dividend” and Medicare for All will help demonstrate the point. Americans take note.

Assault on America, Day 245: Is ‘Pocahontas’ Warren the new de facto Democrat 2020 leader?

Time will reveal whether Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren’s swelling campaign crowds indicate she’s the new de facto leader of the Democrat presidential primary race. One thing’s for sure -- liberals are taking a long hard look at each of the candidates, unsure of who could best compete with Donald Trump.

Assault on America, Day 244: Trump’s 2020 focus must be fighting DC elite spending swamp

Spending is a Democrat problem and a Republican problem. Trump’s post-Mueller “enemy” could be the congressional big spenders from both parties. Talk about a winning electoral platform…and he’d have numerous things to Tweet about as well. Something to consider as we leap into the fall campaign season.

Assault on America, Day 240: Which would save more lives, new gun laws or banning abortion?

Liberals can’t have it both ways. They can’t advocate for gun laws that theoretically might save lives and in the next breath favor abortion policies that stop hundreds of beating hearts every day. If saving even one life is truly worth it to them -- they should at least concede the hypocrisy.

Will Democrat ‘Super Delegates’ Save Gaffe-A-Minute Biden?

A significant group of “super delegates” coming out for Biden would signal donors that the Party elders have confidence in Biden’s ability to take on President Trump. Absent such an effort by the Democrats’ party leaders to tilt the nomination to Biden, it looks like Biden is fading and the race is moving toward an Elizabeth Warren vs. Bernie Sanders marathon.

Assault on America, Day 239: Liberal media can’t handle minorities who praise Donald Trump

As long as there’s a liberal establishment media there will be attempts to pack people in groups according to their alleged beliefs and voter preferences. Then someone like BET’s Robert Johnson says nice things about Trump and upsets the whole rigid classification scheme. Where does the truth lie?
