Assault on America, Day 112: What kind of team bans ‘God Bless America’ due to 1930s satire?

It’s sad that few probably noticed the New York Yankees’ removal of Kate Smith’s classic “God Bless America” from the seventh inning stretch. It’s even worse the team felt a need to do it based on events from a different time and mindset. Such is the way of the politically correct.

Anti-Trump Crazies Urge Impeachment on Cringing Dems

David Catron, The American Spectator

On impeachment, the Democrats are caught betweenScylla and Charybdis. The “news” media, the far left wing of their own caucus, and their most vocal paymaster want President Trump thrown over the side to appease the gods of the deep state. But the electorate isn’t there. The voters aren’t naïve enough to think Trump is as pure as the driven snow, but most have by now concluded that the nonstop calumny to which he has been subjected for the last three years is unfair at best. In the end, the Democrats don’t have any good choices.

Come On Democrats, Impeach Trump!

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

You must impeach President Trump today! And I am not saying that because I think it would be hilarious if you let the nimrods who actually run your shabby party lead you into a political disaster of epic proportions. I am not saying that because it would result in a crushing backlash in next year’s elections as the American people rebuke you Democrats for your gibbering insanity and asinine coup-plotting. My interest is totally in seeking justice n’ stuff. If you don’t impeach him, you hate justice. Don’t betray your party and America, Nancy. Impeach him. Do it now.

For some Dems, breaking up with dossier is hard to do

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Now in charge of the House Intelligence Committee, Schiff has begun an all-new Trump-Russia investigation. As part of that, he has hired as an investigator former federal prosecutor Daniel Goldman, who just a few months ago said of the Steele dossier, "Nothing has been undermined thus far." Some Democrats, even those who have access to highly classified intelligence and should know better, will give up the dossier only when, as gun lovers used to say, you pry their cold, dead fingers from it. Mueller report or no Mueller report, for some high-ranking Trump adversaries, the dossier lives on.

Assault on America, Day 111: Why America will never fall for ‘President Pete’ or Oprah’s guru

While it’s true any natural born American citizen over the age of 35 (and having lived in the U.S. for 14 years) is eligible to be president, it takes a lot more than a few interesting personal chits to realize the dream. Pete Buttigieg and Marianne Williamson are not typical Democrats -- and their candidacies are a punchline.

Democrats Continue to Destroy Themselves over Mueller Report

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The longer the Democrats obsess over the Mueller report and the possibility of obstruction, the bigger hole they dig for themselves. By continuing their Trump/Russia obsession Democrats will only be calling more attention to the forthcoming Inspector General's report on the genesis of the investigation that is almost certain to point fingers in directions that will make them and their media friends uncomfortable. The potential for destroyed reputations at the least and incarcerations at the most is significant. Firings have already taken place.

Mueller’s Despicable Parthian Shot

David Catron, The American Spectator

In the end, the Mueller probe was an investigation looking for a crime. Thus, it produced nothing but a few process crimes and useless indictments of foreign nationals who will never be brought to trial. It was also conducted by partisan hacks, like Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, whose primary goal was to bring down the President. That failed. So, like all cowards in retreat, Mueller and his minions attempted to do as much damage as possible to the President as they departed. That’s why they refused to exonerate him despite finding no real evidence for obstruction of justice. The whole exercise was utterly despicable.

Once more, only lumps of coal in certain Christmas stockings

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Great expectations dashed again. The Democrats, but for the dwindling number of grown-ups in the party of Jefferson, Jackson, Harry S. Truman and FDR, were so sure that Mr. Mueller would deliver the goods they had conferred sainthood on him, much like the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to Barack Obama before he assumed office. Now some Democrats are looking for rope to deal with the special counsel, unless that other mob, the one still in pursuit of the president, has cornered the supply of hemp on their march to the hanging tree.

My Simple, Effective Comprehensive Illegal Immigration Reform Plan: Go Home

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Donald Trump is going to be presented with a sucker’s smorgasbord (Which reminds me - deport all illegal Swedes) of proposals to “solve the border crisis,” none of which will actually solve the border crisis and all of which will result in more illegals being here – only legally. It’s all amnesty, and it’s all a scam. Remember how you should never let a good crisis go to waste? Well, they see this as a good crisis, and if a few tens of thousands of Americans have to OD on Fentanyl that’s a price they’re willing to pay to dilute us conservative voters and to enrich the corporate donor class. It’s all lies, and we need to reject it.

Things That Can’t Go on Forever Simply Don’t

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

History always offers guidance to the eventual end game when people are unwilling to give up their chauvinism. Vicious tribal war can break out as in contemporary Syria. The nation can fragment into ethnic enclaves as seen in the Balkans. Or factions can stake out regional no-go zones of power as we’ve seen in Iraq and Libya. In sum, the present identity-politics divisiveness is not a sustainable model for a multiracial nation, and it will soon reach its natural limits one way or another. On a number of fronts, if Americans do not address these growing crises, history will. And it won’t be pretty.

Assault on America, Day 110: Nauseated GOPers sickened by Mitt Romney’s bashing of Trump

Thankfully no one pays any attention to what Mitt Romney thinks these days. Perhaps he should realize it and cease taking cheap shots at a president who is keeping the party’s promises and faces what is sure to be a serious leftist socialist Democrat challenger next year. Can’t Mitt just shut up?

Trump is a master at pushing Democrats’ buttons

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Call Trump what you will, but he’s a master at pushing Democrats’ buttons. A simple tweet from him and they rush to embrace the wackiest, most self-defeating ideas imaginable, even reversing their own positions. For much of Trump’s presidency, Dems and their media puppets were able to diminish his populism as mere appeals to his base. The left’s message to all others was that Trump’s policies and tweets were neither sound nor serious, just boob bait for his deplorable Bubbas. But these days, in the run-up to 2020, we are witnessing a significant change in Trump’s target audience. He is broadening his aim to include independent-minded voters who are repelled by Democrats’ increasingly radical positions.

My Op-Ed In The Hill: Why Ken Cuccinelli should be Trump's choice for DHS

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already expressed opposition to Cuccinelli, who as president of the Senate Conservatives Fund led primary challenges to K Street-controlled, establishment Republicans. McConnell, therefore, may have a grudge, but one not based in Cuccinelli’s fitness for the job.

Assault on America, Day 106: Easter, American politics and the hope of resurrection & recovery

Easter reminds us of the power of redemption and second comings, particularly relevant this year with the tragic near-destruction of the historic Notre Dame Cathedral. American politics could see some surprising comebacks of its own next year, in Alabama and in nationwide House races. Stay tuned.

The Progressive Revolution: From Democratic to Liberal to Progressive to Socialist

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

What we are seeing in the Democratic party’s movement to the hard left is not the beginning but the end of a long march. Socialists and progressives believe that control of the Congress, the presidency, and courts is the final missing tessera from their already expansive socialist mosaic. They believe that the future is theirs. They no longer need to apologize for pushing government-sanctioned redistribution. And with an administrative state that nearly pulled off a coup in the past two years, with 21 trillion dollars in national debt and the courts as de facto progressive legislators, and with an open 2,000-mile border, they may well be right.

An imaginary look at an imaginary 2020 election

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Arithmetic is mostly a parlor game for pundits and pollsters this far out; these numbers are meaningless as predicting what will actually happen. If you ask a pollster who will win an election a year in advance, the reply will invariably be, “tell me who the candidates are.” But parlor games are fun, which is why nearly everybody loves to play. Some polls put the president’s approval rating in the 40 percent range, some more than that. Rasmussen, the most reliable political pollster over the past few election cycles, puts the number above 50 percent. That, Wall Street wise men are saying, might be just about enough to win a second term.

It’s Against The Rules To Criticize Liberals

According to liberals, Donald Trump has coarsened politics by hitting back and standing up for himself and his ideas, instead of stoically taking the pummeling they dish out. Now that Trump has announced there are new rules to the game and he is going to hit back, there’s no end to the Liberal wailing.

Assault on America, Day 105: GOP establishment remains Trump’s most visible 2020 opponent

Instead of joining President Trump in his relentless drive to steer American government back towards its constitutional limits, the Republican establishment is taking the opposite approach. It just goes to show, it’ll take much longer than four years to change the rotten culture in Washington.

Five arguments the Mueller report won't settle

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Attorney General William Barr has promised to release a redacted version of the Mueller report this week. It will of course consume the political conversation for days, but even now it is clear that, as much as the report might be talked about, it will not settle the main arguments that have raged about the Trump-Russia affair for more than two years. Here are five debates that won't be resolved, no matter how much of the report Barr makes public: 1. Collusion. 2. Obstruction. 3. Impeachment. 4. Investigating the investigation. 5. Why a special counsel?

Assault on America, Day 104: Both R’s and D’s can’t get their arms around the media’s lies

Democrats and Republicans will never view the media the same way, though at times both parties have beefs with how reporters handle issues. All politicians wish the media would pass along facts without embellishment, but fiscally speaking, it’s an ugly picture any way you look at it.
