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?

Assault on America, Day 520: Which side does Joe Biden favor, the criminals or the victims?

It's possible -- but highly doubtful -- that we’ll learn in the coming weeks and months what the “protests” were all about, and the leftist “leaders” will clarify what exactly it is that they want. Until that time, political schleps like Joe Biden will continue making hay out of social stupidity, and the world won’t be a better place.

Assault on America, Day 519: ‘Take one for the team’ gains distinct meaning in 2020 Election

Recent events demonstrated that politics is very much a team sport and Republicans would do well to unify to defend Americans’ rights and freedoms under the Constitution. Democrats certainly won’t do it. The end result of personal grudges and intra-party backbiting is losses on Election day. The practical results would be calamitous.

Assault on America, Day 518: Miscreants and thugs won’t ruin America -- unless we let them

We are living in strange times and the nationwide “protests” go along with the overpowering sense of weirdness. Not everything is as it seems, however, and there may be some positive points emerging from the recent craziness. When the smoke clears, Americans will take another hard look at the ruling class. What will they see?

We Endorse Jim Simpson For Congress – Vote Today In Maryland GOP Primary

We’ve known and worked closely with Jim Simpson for almost a decade. In that time, we’ve come to agree with former Maryland Governor Bob Ehrlich who said of Jim Simpson, "Jim has the background and backbone needed to take on our hard left Democratic establishment." The Maryland Republican Primary is today, Tuesday, June 2 – if you can vote in the Republican primary in Maryland’s Second Congressional District we urge you to vote for James Simpson for Congress.

Assault on America, Day 517: Not even Dems should root for an anemic economic recovery

Clearly, not all Democrats hope the economy will come rushing back in the fall, but if they ever wish to realize any of their fantastical government-control schemes, they’d better hope it does. The debt disease is every bit as real as COVID-19 and the political class seems immune to demands to address it. No hype needed here.

Assault on America, Day 516: How Colonial Williamsburg could (again) free us from tyranny

The answers to present day challenges and dilemmas aren’t always garnered from contemporary proposals and solutions, and they’re definitely not found among today’s nanny-state governing authorities. In dealing with the coronavirus, perhaps we should look back to a time and place where liberty was honored and valued. What do you think?

Assault on America, Day 513: Dopey Joe Biden and the political skill game he just can’t master

Joe Biden is one of the luckiest men in America. In spite of a decided lack of political talents he’s almost secured the Democrat nomination for president. As the party’s “next-in-line”, voters chose the safe option, believing Joe would be a sure-bet to best Donald Trump in November. Instead, Biden can’t keep his closet-racist foot out of his mouth.

Assault on America, Day 512: Identity politics is the prison Grampa Joe can’t hope to escape

Democrats believe identity politics is the key to selecting the perfect running mate for Grampa Joe Biden, but it’s really a fortified jail cell without possibility of escape. There isn’t a woman on earth that will satisfy every Democrat interest group, so instead of making everyone happy, Biden’s choice will tick people off.

Assault on America, Day 511: Exploring the difference between shouldn’t and can’t be done

There’s a definite difference between what shouldn’t and what can’t happen. Opening up the economy is no longer an option, it’s a necessity. The rest is up to individuals to decide. And if a new wave of sicknesses returns in the fall/winter, there’s no going back to lockdown status. It’s never been more clear -- it can’t be done.

Assault on America, Day 510: This November, vote like life depends on it -- because it might

Democrats and Republicans will claim that their governors’ coronavirus responses helped save lives, but both sides can’t be right and statistics don’t lie. Now more than ever we see evidence that elections have consequences. Think about it before you cast your vote this November. The life you save might be your own.

Assault on America, Day 506: Nancy Pelosi’s $3 trillion slush fund disguised as virus relief

It doesn’t take a genius to wonder why Democrats are working so hard to keep the economy closed -- they’re doing it so people will blame Trump and Republicans for the worst of the damage. With COVID-19 cases and deaths steadily declining, it will be much harder for the bigger government party to get its way. Have a pleasant and meaningful Memorial Day.

Assault on America, Day 505: America’s youth experience Great Awakening coronavirus-style

Every day it seems we’re awakening to a new set of surprises during the coronavirus pandemic and resultant economic panic. Recent graduates will have their own special challenges in the coming weeks and months and they don’t need more fearmongering. Now more than ever, we need the optimism of President Trump.

Assault on America, Day 504: Will the ghost of 'The Bern' haunt Grampa Joe on Election Day?

Both parties’ prospects depend on being able to turn out their bases and here’s thinking Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats will encounter more than their share of resistance from the Bernie Sanders revolutionary faction. Much damage was done during the party primaries and won’t be repaired no matter how many endorsements flow in the interim.

Assault on America, Day 503: Full recovery is possible in politics. The economy? We’ll see

Surveys confirm politics is taking a backseat to worries over the coronavirus pandemic, but sooner or later people will need to pay attention to the statistics and hedge bets that things will be okay. Since going “Back to the Future” isn’t an option in the real world, Americans must rely on the good sense and work ethic that brought them to 2020 in the first place.

Assault on America, Day 502: Deliver us from fear, Chinese Communist Party virus edition

This ever-evolving nightmare must end and common sense says to err on the side of optimism and the belief our country can endure the worst of trials and pandemics. This isn’t the Black Death we’re talking about. At some point, government must trust the people, and maybe then, the people will put their fear away and start trusting the government in return.

Assault on America, Day 499: Democrats to ditch convention over worries about doddering Joe

We all spend too much time worrying about things that probably will never happen. Democrats are taking their uncertainties to the extreme by (likely) canceling their quadrennial nominating convention this summer. Perhaps their fears are justified, however: President Trump is dismantling Obama’s legacy -- and they are powerless to stop it.
