Assault on America, Day 196: How Trump sidestepped Paul Ryan’s lessons on government

President Trump’s battle against the Washington elites is just getting started, and if the ruling class gets its way, he’ll not only lose the fight, he’ll be shamed and drummed out of town. Paul Ryan is relieved to be away from it all -- here’s hoping more establishmentarians follow him into retirement.

Eat Popcorn As Democrats Eat Themselves

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

The next generation of Democrats see that their crusty master caste is doing nothing but preserving its own power, and that the oldsters aren’t really down with the revolution. After all, a revolution tosses out the ruling class, and the Dino Dems are quite happy being the ruling class. What to do? The problem Democrats made for themselves by trying to harness the power of hate-fueled idiocy for their own purposes is coming back to bite them right on the Ted Lieu. They’ll have to either amputate the radicals, which they can’t do and survive, or submit to the radicals, which they can’t do and survive. It seems the Democrats can’t live with them, and can’t live without them.

Assault on America, Day 195: Today’s warped Dems wish everyone was a needy illegal alien

No matter how much we wish it, the illegal immigration issue isn’t going away. In today’s toxic political environment, the only thing that can be done is to try and plug the enormous gaps in the balky border system -- or to vote in politicians who see reality and crave to do something about it.

Open border Democrats

Katie Pavlich, The Hill

For years Democrats have claimed they are for strong border security and immigration enforcement while also providing empathy for those who come to the United States illegally. Many complained the 2006 legislation wasn’t enough to properly secure the border with Mexico. Until now, Democrats have written off the accusation of supporting open borders as a Republican talking point. Now, it’s solidly in their platform and has been given on-the-record support by Democrats running for president. The Trump administration is offering real, sustainable solutions to stopping the current crisis at the border. Democrats are looking to exacerbate the situation while derailing American sovereignty and security in the process.

Democrats Raising The Mexican Flag Over America

On Friday, "protesters" tore down the American flag and raised the Mexican flag over the ICE facility in Aurora, Colorado. It is worth noting that these things only seem to happen in Democrat-controlled areas, and right on cue, on Friday, all of Colorado’s Democratic politicians began echoing open borders talking points.

Assault on America, Day 194: When it comes to Democrat nut-jobs, Tom Steyer takes 1st prize

Tom Steyer’s entrance into the Democrat presidential race will shake things up -- for a while -- but it’s impossible to tell how he will impact the long-term results. Like all Democrat candidates, Steyer lacks a reason for existing -- and they all look like dull pewter compared to solid gold Donald Trump.

Black Folks Don’t Need Reparations — We’re Doing Well On Our Own

Candace Owens, Daily Caller

Democrats don’t actually care about justice, fairness, or any of the other noble principles they constantly invoke in their public comments. The real purpose of holding this conversation about reparations is to reinforce the Democrats’ hold on the African American vote in advance of a critical election that most people expect will be decided by the slimmest of margins. It also promotes the Democratic Party dogma that the redistribution of wealth by a vast and powerful central government is how our society should be structured. Black Americans don’t need reparations — or any of the other destructive policies Democrats use to keep us dependent on their supposedly benevolent protection. We’re doing better than ever right now.

Tell Your Representative To Vote NO On Leftwing Social Engineering In The Military

We urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Representative (the toll-free Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044), tell your Representative the American military is not the place for Leftwing social engineering. Demand that your Representative vote NO on the amendments analysed in this article from our friends at the Center for Military Readiness.

Assault on America, Day 191: Leftists champion losers while dissing Thomas Jefferson’s holiday

Honoring the Founding Fathers and the United States flag should be a no-brainer for Americans, but the cultural rot that’s relentlessly advanced by the left is present all around us. At the very least the past deserves respect and educated perspective. Is it really too much to ask today?

Democrats care more about helping illegal aliens than Americans

Joseph Curl, Washington Times

The contrast is stark. While President Trump is working daily to improve the economy, create good-paying jobs and solve pressing problems facing Americans, the biggest issue right now for Democrats running for president in 2020 is helping illegal aliens get into the United States to get services paid for by U.S. taxpayers. Some candidates are literally going to Mexico to literally help foreigners literally cross the border. But here’s what Mr. Trump should do: Address homelessness, poverty and hunger. These are Americans who need help. And if you’ve been to Los Angeles or San Francisco — the latter being the home district of Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi — you know the problem is out of hand.

Democrats: Prisoners of the past on the economy

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

Democrats remember the 1992 Bill Clinton mantra, “It’s the economy, stupid,” and how Clinton won despite a macroeconomic upswing. So, why not describe the economy as it used to be, and as they’d like voters to see it, rather than as it actually is? This has another benefit for Democratic partisans. They are increasingly upscale white college graduates who care mostly about cultural issues, but they like to think their policies help the less fortunate. Their party has already lost the blue-collar whites who were once its base, and erosion of its supermajorities from blue-collar blacks and majorities from blue-collar Hispanics could destroy its dreams of long-term majorities. Hope they remain prisoners of the past.

Can This Be True? Trump Ties With ‘Unnamed Socialist’

In its matchups of Trump versus Democratic candidates, a recent poll asked people to choose between the president and an unnamed “Democratic candidate who you regard as a socialist.” The result: A tie. Trump, 46%; Socialist, 46%. Among likely voters, the split was Trump 49%, unnamed socialist 43%.

Assault on America, Day 190: How many GOPers will follow Justin Amash out of Republican-land?

Justin Amash won his fifteen minutes of fame when he bolted from the Republican Party last week, but will anyone think about him six months from now? As a member of the GOP, Amash had a platform to speak as an outsider; now he’s just a political eccentric without a voice and no friends.

A Modest Immigration Proposal

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Our universities are, of course, loci of progressive caring and are praised for their sharp opposition to what they think are archaic ideas of sovereignty, border security, and legal-only immigration. And yet so often our social-justice warriors are distant from the concrete recipients of their own often loud advocacy. What better pathway for cultural progress than to have university communities interact with recent immigrant arrivals through housing, socializing, and schooling immigrants? A kid from Atherton, Cambridge, or Chevy Chase might learn a lot by living among arrivals from Oaxaca and vice versa. At least such first-hand association would ground urban progressives’ abstract advocacy in real-life caring.

Trump’s Approvals Highest Ever As Democrats Race to the Left

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

The Democrat party base is forcing moderate candidates to radicalize. Also pulling the party leftward is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her sisters in Congress who receive extensive and indulgent media coverage and have a powerful following among millennials. What the Democratic Party is risking today—and what many of its leaders recognize—is that it will be pulled so far outside the mainstream of American politics in the nomination battle, that its nominee will not be able to make it back close enough to the center to win. If the Democratic Party, as its alternative to Trump, decides to run on this radical new agenda, America will punish that hubris with a second term for Trump.

Democrats Double Down On Hating America

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

The current Democrat Party consists of hipster geebos, race hustlers, pierced campus mutants, bitter middle-aged divorcées who teach high school, tech twerps and uninvited foreigners who shouldn’t even be here. Their platform, carried out by the carnival freakshow that is the Democrat Party and its allies in the media and in the woke corporations, is part of a greater strategy. It’s to denigrate and then destroy what makes America America, to steal our story from us and replace it with a bogus legacy of oppression and misery. They want to impose upon us a new narrative of a morally stained America unworthy of respect or gratitude, and guess who will be the heroes of that new narrative?

Far-Left Billionaire Whacko Tom Steyer Enters Democrat Primary

The Democratic Party wisemen in Washington can’t be happy with Tom Steyer’s announcement because it will be that much harder for them to move to the center for the November election with Steyer pushing the other Democrats even further to the Left on impeachment, global warming and abortion, while ramping-up the anti-free market rhetoric.

Put The Citizenship Question On The Census!

The civil servants at the Justice Department didn’t want to fight to win the citizenship question lawsuit and probably laydown and let the Democrats win the first time around. Now there's a new team working on the case and a it looks like both President Trump and Attorney General Barr are committed to seeing the case through to victory.

Assault on America, Day 189: Party pooper 2020 Dems belittle national joy and military honors

It does seem possible to run out of things to complain about, especially if you’re talking about President Trump, the American economy and the successful recovery from eight years of incompetence and malfeasance under Barack Obama. Americans are starting to pay attention -- what will they see?

Democrats’ chances, and their issues, in the toilet

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Lucky for those few sane Democrats left, their party remains the last party in America that gladly steals elections. In 2016, Vermont socialist Sen. Bernard Sanders was fiercely battling his way to the nomination — until party elders stepped in and stole it from him so they could give it to Mrs. Clinton. Those same elders were hoping Mr. Biden would save their party from the army of kooky Bernie Sanders running this time around. But it is worse than that. Even the best that the Democrats have to offer these days are fundamentally unserious people who constantly lie about everything. What is it with these people and their obsession with the scatological? There is something seriously wrong with them.
