Assault on America, Day 222: Two years since Charlottesville and Dems haven’t learned a thing

It’d be great to say America’s learned a lesson in the two years since the deadly riot in central Virginia, but glancing around it certainly doesn’t look that way. Liberals are still attempting to pin blame for tragedies on the political leadership in the White House. And it ain’t working.

Why conservatives must engage in Hollywood

Sam Sorbo, Washington Times

Why does the size of government only seem to grow, with conservative victories merely coming in fits and starts? One major reason is that liberals dominate culture, which has a much more profound impact on people’s worldview than policy analysis. Culture, and entertainment specifically, taps into people’s emotions, reaching a deeper level of the brain than rational appeals that usually don’t penetrate the frontal cortex. If conservatives want to reverse the juggernaut of the leftist agenda, the long march through the institutions, they must commit to engaging in cultural spheres even more than they do in intellectual ones.

Assault on America, Day 219: Kamala Harris shows true meaning of political ‘flash in the pan’

It takes a lot for a politician to achieve electoral viability and sustain it through a grueling campaign -- and then maintain it once in office. Democrats like Kamala Harris can only get so far on surface characteristics alone, something several candidates are yet to discover in this year’s presidential race.

Assault on America, Day 218: ‘National White Male Lobotomy Day’ coming to your town

Democrats will do anything to win, and their suggestion of a special congressional look into “white nationalism” is as ridiculous as they come. In time someone will devise a reasonable way to stave off the next irrational attack. Until that time, maybe the politicians should just stay the heck away from DC.

Assault on America, Day 217: Why today’s pols shouldn’t try to compete for every possible vote

While it’s a good thing to say you’ll compete for every vote, closer analysis indicates it just isn’t possible. In today’s political climate there’s no such thing as the lowest common denominator; it’s best to take a position and defend it to the last and not worry about the naysayers. Just ask President Trump.

Assault on America, Day 216: American culture of death, not firearms, to blame for mass murders

Something’s definitely wrong in America when individuals set off on mass murder rampages. The challenge lies with identifying a true cause and devising solutions that are both politically palatable and will actually address the problems. Blaming guns or the president is the easy way out. Can’t we talk about the culture of death instead?

Assault on America, Day 215: Dems dump on Obama while Trump’s re-election prospects rise

It wouldn’t be a stretch to deem President Trump the “winner” of last week’s Democrat debates. The lifelong celebrity and social media master knows precisely which buttons to push to get his enemies attacking him -- and each other, too. It’s only August and already the Democrats are in deep trouble.

Assault on America, Day 212: Democrats’ ‘dark psychic forces’ will throw the 2020 election

When Trump talks about “rat infested” Baltimore and making streets safer, he’s drawing a lot of voters’ attention. And his Jamestown tribute was highly presidential, too. Democrats won’t get nearly as far talking about “dark psychic forces” and other wacko ideas, but they’ll sure give it a try.

Assault on America, Day 211: Democrat debate: Until further notice, it’s Biden’s race to lose

Will these two programs shake up the Democrat race? We’ll find out in the coming days and weeks, but here’s thinking everyone’s ready for a break from the non-stop negativity, blame game and finger pointing of the party candidates. In that sense, the real “winner” is all of us.

The death penalty is red tape threaded into a noose

Stephen Daisley, The Spectator

Instead of familiar arguments about racial and class bias, inadequate legal representation and outdatedness, Republican dissenters view the death penalty as another failed government program. Richard Viguerie, a founding father of the conservative movement, contends: ‘Conservatives have every reason to believe the death penalty system is no different from any politicized, costly, inefficient, bureaucratic, government-run operation, which we conservatives know are rife with injustice. But here the end result is the end of someone’s life. In other words, it’s a government system that kills people.’

Assault on America, Day 210: Democrat debate equals predictability and inadvertent hilarity

It’s often said these debates do little to help voters make up their minds, and it might be especially true in Democrats’ case. It’s hard to think of a time in history where one of the parties has offered such poor candidates for president as this year’s Democrats. The party’s “stars” are extreme and the no-names are boring. Sounds like a recipe for disaster, not a roadmap to victory.

Assault on America, Day 209: Advice ain’t always worth what you pay for it. Listening, Democrats?

It’s often said advice is worth what you pay for it, a truism the 2020 Democrat candidates shouldn’t necessarily take to heart. Occasionally a valuable tip arrives free of charge. Will the second round of Democrat debates show the party’s presidential hopefuls learned a lesson? Don’t bet on it.

Assault on America, Day 208: A horrible budget deal only a DC swamp creature could love

The budget deal is truly awful, but conservatives should take some solace in the fact Democrat 2020 candidates will soon be at it again with their next round of debates. Will they address the deficit? Will they talk about the national debt? Is there another solution other than confiscatory taxes? Inquiring minds want to know.

Assault on America, Day 205: What part of ‘America First’ do the media and Dems not get?

Despite what the media chooses to report, President Trump’s trade policies are quite simple and work like a charm. With a singular focus on backing American industry while negotiating with foreign governments, the notion of “America First” is making great popular strides with the people.

Assault on America, Day 204: Circus sideshow 2020 Dems amp up absurdity as debate looms

Running for president is a tough business and no one says it’s fair for all the participants. Drawing early attention and support is essential to mounting a viable campaign, which means Democrats will say some crazy stuff in the lead up to next week’s debates…and afterwards, too.

Assault on America, Day 203: How ‘Trumpian’ values replaced the feeble and outdated old GOP

It’s clear that many in both parties are having a difficult time defining President Trump and what his administration represents. Though the federal fiscal situation leaves much to be desired, Trump’s emphasis on people-centered government is a big improvement from the “old” GOP.

Assault on America, Day 202: R’s and D’s fail to appreciate suicide missions result in death

Democrats have spent years trying to paint Trump as a racist -- and they’re still doing it -- but now they’re getting a little taste of their own medicine, and don’t like it. The best thing Trump could’ve done was get Nancy Pelosi and the Democrat leadership defending the “Squad.” How dumb and ignorant are they?

Assault on America, Day 201: ‘Send her back!’ is the rallying cry of the politically suppressed

Among the multitude of problems the establishment media chooses to ignore is the border patrol’s inability to adequately control drug and human smuggling due to lack of manpower and resources. Rather than report facts, media members sensationalize “Send her Back!” chants. Who loses here?

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?

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?
