Assault on America, Day 300: Impeachment ruse exposes Dems as unfit, incompetent and stupid

With impeachment, Democrats clearly want Americans to see something that isn’t there and then lie about it lest we all be called unfit, stupid and incompetent. It’s our own modern-day version of “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” but this time the joke -- and the shame -- is on the swindler Democrats.

Why are Democrats acting like they have something to hide?

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

These are extraordinary events and the effort to expose the truth about both the spying on a presidential candidate and the subsequent plot to upend his administration is so rich with bombshell potential that you would think the media would be licking their chops over the scoops to come. Instead, The New York Times, CNN and the rest of the Democratic propaganda outlets are furious that the public may finally learn the whole sordid story about one of the most disgraceful episodes in presidential history. And so they have joined forces with Comey, Brennan, Clapper, Schiff, Nadler and Pelosi in attacking Barr for daring to hunt for the truth.

Assault on America, Day 299: Pandering to women & transgenders is every Democrat’s duty

Democrat candidates must endure a daily tough time figuring out how to be the right fit for every party voter bloc, but we shouldn’t feel sympathy for them. There’s more to politics than dividing everyone into neat categories such as women and transgenders. This leaves Trump free to talk about jobs -- fair enough.

In impeachment, can Democrats focus on Trump intent and not result?

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The crimes Democrats have accused him of committing either never happened or were contemplated but never seen through to the finish. In addition, Trump himself does not view anything he did as criminal at all, hence his extraordinary openness with information, such as the rough transcript of his phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, plus his decision to allow White House staff to cooperate fully with special counsel Robert Mueller. Because of that, even if Democrats succeed in making a case against Trump, voters might reject removal from office, which is the political equivalent of capital punishment.

Debate questions that the Democrats should have been asked

Ann Coulter, The Hill

The most riveting moment came when Joe Biden finally was forced to explain his demand, as vice president, that the Ukrainian president fire a prosecutor who was investigating the company that was paying Biden’s son millions of dollars. Just kidding. Of course that didn’t happen. The media’s role in ferreting out the facts of Biden’s Ukrainian scandal is simply to announce repeatedly that the vice president is as clean as a whistle — That’s not true, it’s disproven, it’s been debunked! Instead of hours of denouncing Trump, how about the next debate’s moderators ask the Democrats to explain some of their more bizarre pronouncements?

Assault on America, Day 296: Rand Paul gives civility lesson to nation at war over politics

Civility is certainly important in today’s contentious political environment, but it’s up to both sides to keep things under control and not cast the first insult. No one deserves being lambasted in a public place simply because of differences in opinion, a lesson that liberals apparently ignore time and again.

Assault on America, Day 295: Is Biden surging again or is Pocahontas Warren simply choking?

Joe Biden’s return to a solid lead in the Democrat presidential race likely means party voters are still unsure about which direction to turn. Perhaps “Pocahontas” Warren isn’t the one to challenge the frontrunner, and it’s not clear if one of the others will either. Could it be Hillary’s time?

Assault on America, Day 294: State Department deep staters don’t like Trump. Need we worry?

Sympathy only extends so far when reports surface of poor morale in a federal department due to the Trump administration’s leaders and policies. Diplomats at the State Department don’t have to like what they’re told to do. The days of swamp creatures calling the shots are over. And that’s a good thing.

Assault on America, Day 293: AOC endorsement reveals deep crack in Democrats’ unity wall

The desperate Democrat Party is looking for a champion. AOC’s relatively early endorsement of Bernie Sanders perhaps indicates the party’s carefully fostered appearance of unity is beginning to dissolve. As the battle between the radicals and the establishment continues, it promises to get interesting.

Will the Democrats miss Middle America again?

Salena Zito, Washington Examiner

Here is what most of Trump’s critics do not understand about why this new conservative populist coalition voted for Trump over not just Clinton but also over 17 very qualified, distinguished, mostly establishment Republican candidates in the party’s primary battle. It was never about Trump. It was always about their communities. Trump was the symptom, not the cause. These voters aren’t going to budge. It’s not that everyone who voted for him considers his first term a massive success that has improved the economy in America and made us safer. It’s that Democrats and Never Trump Republicans have done nothing to reflect on why they lost to this guy.

The Trivialization of Impeachment

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

Our constitutional system will be damaged because impeachment will be discredited. Its invocation will be even less likely in some grievous future instance, when a presidential abuse of power actually does imperil the nation. We will have a virtually omnipotent president. As a practical matter, there will be no viable congressional check — no impeachment, no power of the purse — to rein the president in. The powers of the competing political branches will be in gross imbalance, making functional separation of powers impossible. As the Framers would tell us, that is not a prescription for the preservation of liberty.

Beware Of Democrats ‘Speaking Evangelical’

Vote Common Good and Pastor Pagitt are not suggesting that the Democratic Party abandon its embrace of unlimited abortion on demand, same sex marriage and transgenderism as core principles, instead the goal is to deflect Christians and other voters of faith away from concentrating on those issues by changing how Democrats talk, not how they act.

Assault on America, Day 292: ‘Tis the season for a Democrat impeachment witch hunt?

A number of pundits have suggested Trump purposely manipulated Nancy Pelosi into impeachment knowing it would never work and therefore Democrats would be exposed for the frauds that they are. It’s the highest stakes form of “I dare you” of all-time, and we’re yet to find out whether liberals will actually go through with it.

The Incredible Vanishing Whistleblower

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Imagine the Republicans had tried to impeach then-President Bill Clinton in 1998 for some phone call he made to a foreign leader, and that they'd said they had an anonymous whistleblower who never heard Clinton's phone call. The press would have mocked all of it as an enormous waste of time and money and a huge distraction from the legislative "business of the people." Their completely different and partisan reaction to this only underlines how much collusion goes on between the journalists and the Democrats. They're hard to distinguish from one another. They use all the same talking points and catchphrases.

Assault on America, Day 289: First Dems grab your guns, then they’ll return for your religion

Common sense says it could only be a matter of years before Americans aren’t allowed to own guns or practice their religions if Democrats crawl back into power. Institutional protections and guarantees don’t mean squat when you’ve got self-interested leaders in charge. “Beto” was dumb enough to reveal our future -- take heed.

Inside the media’s relentless crusade to destroy President Trump

Kimberley Strassel, New York Post

The press has embraced its bias, joined the Resistance and declared its allegiance to one side of a partisan war. It now openly declares those who offer any fair defense of this administration as Trump “enablers.” It writes off those who question the FBI or Department of Justice actions in 2016 as “conspiracy” theorists. It acts as willing scribes for Democrats and former Obama officials; peddles evidence-free accusations; sources stories from people with clear political axes to grind; and closes its eyes to clear evidence of government abuse. For those worried about our increasingly polarized society, the media is feeding that divide.

At Democratic debate, notes of caution on impeachment

Byron York, Washington Examiner

If there is an impeachment enthusiasm scale running from cautious to gung-ho, some candidates took positions on the cautious end, despite their party's headlong race toward impeachment on Capitol Hill. Those candidates still seemed concerned that moderate Americans will see the party as so determined to pursue Trump that they ignore pressing national issues. Impeachment won't go away in the next Democratic debate, or the one after that. If House Democrats move forward, one of the candidates, six will have to actually vote on it. This means the concerns some of them voiced Tuesday night will be around for quite a while.

Assault on America, Day 288: Americans can’t wait to vote for president in 2020. Here’s why.

Any way you slice it, Donald Trump evokes strong reactions from Americans on both sides of the ideological fence. If polls indicate people are already eager to cast votes for the next president, it’s not difficult to see why. Some predict a record voter turnout…who will prevail?

Assault on America, Day 287: Democrats pick a little, talk a little, cheep a lot, say nothing

There will be a Democrat name on the ballot opposite President Trump in less than thirteen months (assuming nothing comes from the impeachment farce). Tuesday night’s “debate” did little to clarify who that name will be. When all was said and done, there was more picking than talking -- a bad sign for the party out of the White House.

The Democrat Impeachment Circus

Rachel Bovard, American Greatness

There are few clear rules that govern the process of impeachment, which means that in the wrong hands, the process can be used primarily for political gain. There is a reason Pelosi hasn’t held a full House vote on this issue. It’s because the votes aren’t there. It’s the same reason all of the evidence against the president is discussed and held in secret. Allowing full transparency runs the risk of unravelling the one-sided narrative the Democrats are straining to build. Just trust us, they say. The longer Democrats persist in this manner, the more the nature of this “impeachment inquiry” is revealed to be what it truly is: a shameless, partisan, baseless, groundless, farce of a process.
