Good Riddance To Bob Mueller

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Don’t expect me to shed any tears for his tattered reputation. When all those innocent people he trashed in his quest to undo the 2016 election get their reputations back – and when they get made whole from being impoverished by the lawyer bills they were forced to incur – I’ll start caring that Robert Mueller’s legacy will be that of a doddering oaf who scratched his scattered head and wondered aloud what that newfangled “Fusion GPS” was. Oh boy, he locked up Manafort, but not any Podestas or anyone else not associated with Trump. Slink away, Bob, and take your whole useless caste of failure, grifters and creeps with you.

The Democrats, Not Trump, Are the Racists

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The Democrats are the true racists. The more they and their press lackeys call others racist, the more racist they are — and the more racism they generate. These days one might as well call the Democratic Party The Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Racism. They do this every day through the promulgation of identity politics, which is no more than segregationism repurposed and given a slick veneer for the 21st century via intersectionality and similar bogus academic nonsense. But it doesn't end there. It's a daily, even hourly, assault, the latest occurrence being the uproar over Trump's characterization in a tweet of Rep. Elijah Cummings' Baltimore as "violent & filthy."

GOP List Of Shame On Budget Vote

From our perspective the spending deal was no victory, but another “fear The Turtle” moment in which the not-so-subtle big spending hand of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell manipulated the White House and the House Republican Leadership into once again abandoning any pretense of fiscal restraint.

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.

Impeachment charade deepens divide between Democratic leaders and voters

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Speaker Nancy Pelosi fears impeachment will backfire on Democrats, in large part because the Republican-controlled Senate will never remove Donald Trump from office. Her strategy appears to be to delay and delay until at some point it becomes obvious to all that it is far too late to make impeachment happen. The non-impeachment fix appears to be in, and everybody knows it except the voters and some cable news hosts. Every day is a day that impeachment is not happening. And when it finally doesn't come to pass, there will be a lot of disappointed people who made the mistake of taking all the talk seriously.

Liberals Campaigning Hard To Re-Elect President Trump

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

This festival of stupidity only highlights further the stark choice America faces in 2020: Donald Trump or the preferred candidates of the lunatics. Our strategy as normal Americans is simple, and conveniently congruent with the Constitution’s First Amendment. Let them talk. Encourage them to talk. Beg them to talk. On TV. On the Twitters. Everywhere. Talk, liberals. Say what you really think. Don’t filter yourselves. Don’t hold back. Share all your stupid feelings, your insane observations, your blatant lies and every single thing that crosses your tiny little minds. Never stop talking, dummies. You’re going to keep Trump president forever.

Border Wall Big Win, But Not Fundamental

President Trump and conservatives won a big victory in the Supreme Court’s Wall ruling and in the otherwise disastrous spending bill, but we must be prepared to renew the immigration fight when Congress returns in September and takes-up the next round of spending bills.

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.

After Mueller Debacle, Where Do Democrats Go?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

If Democrats vote impeachment in committee, they will have to take it to the House floor, where their moderates, who won in swing districts, will be forced to vote on it, splitting their own bases in the run-up to the 2020 election. If Democrats lose the impeachment vote on the House floor, it would be a huge setback. But if they vote impeachment in the House, the trial takes place in a Senate run by Mitch McConnell. Trump would go into the 2020 battle against a Democratic Party that failed to overthrow the president in a radical coup that it attempted because it was afraid to fight it out with the president in a free and fair election.

House Democrats should be rounded up, arrested for elder abuse

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Maybe Robert Mueller is just a calcified, barnacle-crusted swamp creature long past his prime. If that’s the case and Democrats forced him out of his retirement home to just play along with their silly partisan fantasies, then they should all be rounded up and arrested for elder abuse. If this was supposed to be the movie version of the Mueller Report, it is a box office disaster. If anything, the movie is an even bigger flop than the book was. Lucky for Mr. Mueller and his family, he had come to the one place in America where he was not the biggest buffoon in the room. In that department, Congress can give anybody a run for their money.

Confused performance by Mueller raises questions about handling of investigation

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Mueller's performance raised questions that reached far beyond one appearance before one committee. It called into doubt the degree to which Mueller was in charge of the entire special counsel investigation. If Mueller was not fully in charge, that would direct attention to the staff he assembled for the investigation — staff that President Trump has often derided as "17 angry Democrats." Some of Mueller's aides were Democratic donors, and a key aide, Andrew Weissmann, famously attended Hillary Clinton's 2016 election night event that was planned as a victory party. It seems likely that Republicans will direct new attention to them in light of Mueller's appearance.

What Do You Call A One-Legged Stool?

Principles matter in elections, and with all four legs of the 2016 big table coalition working full throttle on his behalf Donald Trump is a shoo-in for reelection, but a stool or table supported only by the one leg of Donald Trump’s outsized personality is likely to crash on Election Day.

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.

The Mueller Farce Exposes The Enemies Of The People

Yesterday’s House hearings featuring testimony by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller offered nothing of substance regarding the charges fabricated to impede Donald Trump’s presidency. However, they did provide beyond a shadow of a doubt proof of the complete corruption and utter cynicism of the Democrats and their allies in the establishment media.

Conservatives Oppose Trillion Dollar Spending Boondoggle

The Trump administration projected in March that this year’s deficit will hit $1.1 trillion, up from last year’s deficit of $779 billion – a figure comparable to the Obama-era deficit. After months of urging congressional and administration negotiators to prioritize reductions in spending, the Conservative Action Project has come out in opposition to this irresponsible bipartisan budget deal.

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.

Middle America Will Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Trump supporters know what the media think of them, which is why in Middle America, the media have a crisis of credibility and moral authority. Trump’s true believers do not believe them, trust them, like them, or respect them. And the feeling is obviously mutual. This past week revealed anew what we Americans think of each other, which portends trouble ahead for the republic. Will the deplorables, who number in the scores of millions, accept a future where they and their children and children’s children are to submit to permanent rule by people who visibly detest them and see them as racists, sexists, and fascists? Will Middle America go gentle into that good night?

Can Al Franken be rehabilitated?

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The New Yorker has published a long article suggesting Franken was "railroaded" (author Jane Mayer's word) and reporting that several of Franken's old Senate colleagues now regret calling for him to resign. Nobody really checked out any of the allegations in November and December 2017. They dispensed with even a hint of due process (in this case, an Ethics Committee investigation) and hustled Franken out the door. It doesn't matter -- Franken won't be back. Judging from reaction to the New Yorker story, he is unlikely to regain the support he once had in the progressive world — no matter how hard some might try to rehabilitate him.

Dems take desperate final shot at Trump with Mueller testimony

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Pelosi's strategy of letting the ­impeachment caucus investigate in hopes of pushing up general public support hasn’t substantially moved the needle. That leaves the Dems desperate for Mueller to give them something new, even a stray sentence or two, that they can spin into a web of impeachment. Keep that desperation in mind as Nadler, Schiff and others fulminate and make outlandish charges in hopes of gaining support for the decisions they’ve already made. Some in the GOP are eager to get Mueller under oath so they can ask pointed questions about things his report doesn’t address. There will be lots of shouting, acrimony and histrionics but when the TV lights are turned off, nothing will have changed.

Trump Sucked Into McConnell Spending Betrayal

The voters who want fiscal responsibility who powered the Tea Party Wave and the Trump Movement haven’t gone away. While they may grudgingly support President Trump in 2020 against a Far-Left progressive Democrat, congressional Republicans who think they can spend their way to reelection will face the wrath of those voters.
