Assault on America, Day 103: Shortage of DC true believers threatens Trump’s MAGA mission

It could be said Washington DC’s biggest problem is its shortage of true believers, accountable people who devote themselves to the political leadership’s mission and willingly endure hardships and establishment ridicule to get things done. With Trump, the half-committed need not apply.

The Open Borders Agenda Rears Its Ugly Head

Ben Shapiro, The Daily Wire

Democrats in Congress refuse to act. They won't change the regulations to allow families to remain together in custody, and they won't provide the funding necessary to keep detained families in some level of comfort. Instead, they snipe at the supposed cruelty of the Trump administration, which simply seeks to end the policy of "catch and release" that results in hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants remaining indefinitely in the country. The only truly dumb thing is continuing to play politics with the lives of people crossing the border illegally and American citizens being forced to cope with the price of illegal immigration.

Mitch McConnell Opposes Nominees Who Agree With President Trump

Mitch McConnell opposes Ken Cuccinelli for Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security precisely because Cuccinelli agrees with Trump, and the last person an establishment Chamber of Commerce-type Republican like Mitch McConnell wants running DHS is someone who actually believes in and will fight for the Trump border security agenda.

The State of Free Speech in Europe and the Future of America

European policymakers have failed to recognize that the best way to combat totalitarian and racist ideologies, such as Nazism, and the spread of their ideas, is to let them speak freely and to disprove them in the court of public opinion. The lesson for America is: Don’t adopt totalitarian laws in an effort to stop totalitarianism.

Assault on America, Day 100: Obama’s ‘Circular firing squad’ comparison taints 2020 Democrats

Primary campaigns are always contentious, especially in times of flux. Democrats aren’t going through anything now that Republicans didn’t experience just a few years ago. If Obama -- or anyone else -- thinks next year should turn into an intra-party love fest… he’s in for a rude awakening.

William Barr Is the Democrats' Worst Nightmare

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Barr's obviously been paying attention to the larger situation and that is bad news indeed for Democrats. This is particularly true because the Mueller probe did not come up with any crimes connected to Russia collusion, but even the beginnings of an investigation of what prompted the probe in the first place has already come up with several. What is clear is we will be dealing with this a long time, all the way, it's quite likely, to election 2020. For the Democrats, this is the original "be careful what you wish for,"  especially if the investigation leads where many think it will--to the top of their party.

Assault on America, Day 99: Does anyone think Oprah or LeBron deserve slavery reparations?

It isn’t often we foresee the negative consequences of a government policy as clearly as we do with slavery reparations. The individuals who suffered under the “peculiar institution” -- and those who inflicted the pain -- are long since beyond reach. No “compensation” today would make anyone whole.

Reparations: Another Cynical Racial Ploy from the Democrats

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Human suffering knows no racial, ethnic, or religious barriers. As we all know, it's everywhere. But that doesn't stop the Democrats from ignoring the famous advice of Gandhi ("An eye for an eye and the world will die") and fanning those reparation flames again. In a nauseating display, one after the other of their 2020 candidates stepped forward to be blessed in his or her fealty to reparations by that racist of racists—who can forget Tawana Brawley—the Reverend Al Sharpton at his National Action Network convention in NYC. Watching the video of the event, you have the sensation you are watching a form of ritual dumb show.

Assault on America, Day 98: Generic Democrats and Pelosi’s minions can’t stop Trump train

Pundits’ analysis and poll results shed little useful light on the 2020 presidential race over a year and a half before America chooses its next president. Donald Trump will be there, paired against a Democrat with his or her own apple cart full of problems. Nothing is “generic” in politics today.

Democrats Let Loose the Politics of Hate

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

From his words and actions, Trump clearly senses that this may be the existential issue of his presidency: Can he secure the border against what seems to be an unstoppable invasion from the global south? Nor is this only an American issue. In the capitals of Europe — Budapest, Berlin, Paris, Rome, London, Madrid — the gnawing fear is not of Vladimir Putin leading a mighty Russian army back to the Elbe to recreate Stalin's empire, but of the African and Muslim hundreds of millions looking hungrily north to the pleasant lands of the former mother countries.

Democrats Feed on Voter Fears

David Catron, The American Spectator

It’s about the increasing difficulty of Democrats to win elections playing by the rules. This is also a primary driver of the ongoing effort to nullify the results of the 2016 election, even after the President has been cleared of conspiring with the Russians to steal the election from the “rightful President.” It’s about the hunger for power. And, if gaining the kind of power the Democrats crave requires destroying the credibility of our electoral process, so be it. What does a vulture care about integrity? It knows only that it is hungry and here is food.

Ken Cuccinelli For Secretary Of Homeland Security

Running the Department of Homeland Security for President Trump, and getting the Trump agenda accomplished will take spine, smarts, media savvy and the ability to think creatively to get the job done. Of all the good names that have surfaced Ken Cuccinelli is the only candidate who checks all those boxes.

Assault on America, Day 97: Beto’s talent for B.S. suggests he’ll thrive in 2020 Dem primaries

Politicians bend facts to bolster claims of knowing more than competitors and opponents, hence providing a basis for choosing them over the others. Beto O’Rourke’s proving especially adept at spinning tall tales, which indicates he should do very well in next year’s Democrat primaries.

The Russian collusion hoax meets unbelievable end

Rep. Devin Nunes, Washington Examiner

Having extensively investigated this abuse, House Intelligence Committee Republicans will soon be submitting criminal referrals on numerous individuals involved in these matters. These people must be held to account to prevent similar abuses from occurring in the future. The men and women of our intelligence community perform an essential service defending American national security, and their ability to carry out their mission cannot be compromised by biased actors who seek to transform the intelligence agencies into weapons of political warfare.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen Out

Now that Kirstjen Nielsen is out we hope the President will finally grasp that personnel is policy and begin appointing senior officials who actually believe in and want to accomplish his agenda, starting with the Department of Homeland Security and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

Assault on America, Day 96: Which side of the border crisis are Democrats and the media on?

We can’t depend on the media to report on the true situation at the border and the impossible negotiating position Congress forced on President Trump. Closing the border is the last and most drastic step to finally move Trump’s opponents off their rocks. Will they ever do it?

With Mueller hopes gone, so goes progressive unity

Victor Davis Hanson, Washington Times

There will be infighting over the collective embarrassment of the Russian collusion hoax. A few shamed progressive politicians and reporters will grow quiet and acknowledge their overreach. But many will double down and weirdly insist that there really was Russian collusion and that the Steele dossier was true. Most will remain unashamed and simply move on to the next supposed Trump scandal. Progressives in unison boarded the Mueller express to nowhere. As they now jump off the train wreck, the fighting won’t be pretty.

Dems Have Vastly More to Fear from Full Mueller Report than GOP

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The full text of the Mueller report is a booby-trap for the Democrats. And many of them not named Schiff must know or suspect it. Sure there will be one or two tidbits to keep the heavy breathers at CNN distracted as their ratings continue to fall through the basement, but largely the report will be four hundred pages demonstrating what we all now know did not happen — i. e. collusion between Trump or anyone on his campaign and the Russians (not that we didn't know that over a year ago). The natural question will then be — what was all this for?

New Poll: America Is Morally Divided Over Socialism

Timothy Daughtry, Townhall

People are free to believe the sweet-sounding rhetoric of socialism if they want, but the facts are clear.  Looking at volumes of evidence from across the world, economists such as Thomas Sowell have repeatedly documented that socialism is associated with serious reductions in productivity, shortages in goods and services, and a lower standard of living, particularly for the poor.  And free enterprise results in greater productivity and higher standards of living wherever it is implemented, and even those in the lower economic strata live better under free enterprise than under socialism.

Assault on America, Day 93: Will Trump wrestle healthcare momentum away from Dems in 2020?

By urging the senate to revisit the possibility of repealing and replacing Obamacare, President Trump made a political move to assure the public he hasn’t forgotten about the issue ahead of next year’s election. Ruling class Republicans and Democrats take note -- Trump means what he says.
