Trump Tackles The Deficit That McCarthy, Ryan And Boehner Ignored

President Trump’s budget is an excellent blueprint for reorganizing government, gaining many efficiencies and it funds the wall and the continued rebuilding of our military. However, it is only as good as the President’s willingness to fight for it by vetoing Democrat deficit spending bills and holding the Capitol Hill GOP’s feet to the fire to sustain those vetoes.

Assault on America, Day 70: Why Democrats’ shunning of Fox News will cost them in 2020

Both parties are guilty of pandering to their own bases, but Democrats consistently shy away from challenges to their strange belief systems. Hillary Clinton lost in 2016 because she arrogantly assumed she’d win; 2020 Democrats seem destined to repeat the same mistake.

The Dems Will Lose the House in 2020

David Catron, The American Spectator

The Republicans will deliver a humiliating defeat to House Democrats in 2020 if its alleged leaders fail to rein in their own cadre of fanatical leftists, the core of which consists of recently elected social justice warriors Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley, Rohit Khanna, Raul Grijalva, and Pramila Jayapal. But the internecine fight that preceded the cowardly revision of the anti-Semitism resolution into a denunciation of generic bigotry suggests that party leaders may not hold enough sway over their own caucus to prevent it from self-destructing.

Nervous Nancy Has Lost Control of Her Crazy Party

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Nothing like intra-pinko cannibalism. Turn the Democrat Party into the Donner Party. Sure, the Democrats’ pain is hilarious, but the fact that a major political party has surrendered itself to the zealots of an ideology that has murdered 100 million people is not so hilarious. Maybe if the socialists get in charge here, they won’t bring misery and murder. Maybe the ones in Congress now are so smart and competent that they can actually make this blood-splattered ideology work. But it’s going to be a hard sell for the Dems to get us to bet our lives on it.

The Democrats’ Election-Reform Bill Is an Unconstitutional, Authoritarian Power Grab

The Editors, National Review

Democrats may have just sent to the Senate the most comprehensively unconstitutional bill in modern American history. Throughout the Trump years, Democrats have raised multiple alarms over the alleged authoritarianism of the Trump administration, and while we have not agreed with the propriety of all the administration’s actions, nothing it has proposed or enacted is as alarming as H.R. 1. This bill is a frontal assault on the Constitution, and the nation should be grateful that the Republican-controlled Senate will almost certainly block it from becoming law.

Liberal Jews Better Wake Up Before It's Too Late

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Nowadays, when a leftie Jew sings "Which Side Are You On," they are increasingly singing a song against themselves. This does not bode well for the future, to put it mildly. The time has come for at least some of these Jewish liberals to break out of their mouldy mold. Even a few would make a big difference. No doubt this will be the subject on many minds at the coming annual meeting of that organization reviled by Ilhan Omar -- AIPAC -- later this month. It will be interesting to see what transpires. Maybe some people will finally become truly woke.

Climate change activists are filled with hysteria, hot air

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

If Mr. Nye is the old crank spinning hysterical yarns, AOC is the young, earnest believer who intends to weaponize the claptrap into the deadly serious. You see, people today erroneously talk about socialism as some kind of economic system. It is not. Socialism is a political construct that replaces individual liberty with government control over everything. Global warming hysteria is just the pretext these people need to justify the eradication of individual rights. AOC’s “Green Old Deal” would not cost a dime. That is what prison labor camps are for.

Assault on America, Day 69: Does anyone think giving 16-year-olds a vote is a good idea?

Liberals and Democrats love listening to today’s youth unless they’re saying something non-politically correct and supportive of President Trump and traditional values. Giving 16-year-olds the vote fulfills no useful purpose; it’s just another leftist scheme to take over the world.

Assault on America, Day 68: ‘Obama University’ to build millions of Barack and Michelle clones

The fact Obama appears to be reemerging ahead of next year’s election shows how desperate Democrats are to recall a time when they controlled everything. Obama’s “university for social change” is a scary prospect indeed. There’s a lot more damage these people can do.

Machiavelli Looks at the Goings-On in the US House

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Walking in the shadow of Dante, Machiavelli, Michelangelo and Leonardo, giants of human civilization, you're struck by how little of interest or merit is going on now on both sides of the Atlantic — how small we have become, trivial actually. We're a bunch of bores, really. Civilization is not at its height. We don't even have the excuse of an epidemic, let alone war. We're living "Envy in the Time of Tedious Petty Outrage." John Brennan and Adam Schiff are symbols of our time, not Botticelli or Lorenzo de Medici.

Fight Over Infanticide Is Just Beginning

Tony Perkins, CNS News

If a majority of the Members of Congress sign the discharge petition on the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, the Speaker will be forced to bring it to the floor for a vote (the petition will become eligible for signatures early in April). That's a public process, thanks to work that Senator Inhofe did in the 1990s. Every signature will be out in the open, in plain view of voters. Do your representatives just give lip service to ending infanticide – or do they mean it? Americans are about to find out.

Assault on America, Day 65: Turmoil in today’s Dem party, where common sense is apostacy

Things are quickly changing for today’s Democrats. One minute they’re rallying behind the old guard (represented by Nancy Pelosi and creepy “Chucky” Schumer), the next they’re clinging to young radicals like AOC. Who will prevail in the struggle to control the liberal party’s future?

Dems have only themselves to blame for Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic comments

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

The Democratic Party is increasingly both the anti-Israel party and home to a growing number of anti-Semites. To be clear, the two things are not always the same, but something is going on when both are defining elements of a political organization. Any Republican who does not support Israel likely would be shunned by the evangelical movement, which in some states constitutes the largest single bloc of GOP voters. Dems have failed to deal with anti-Semitism forthrightly, and now are confronted by a metastasizing cancer in their ranks.

The Deep State Past and Present

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

The insidious power of the unelected administrative state is easy to understand. After all, it governs the most powerful aspects of modern American life: taxes, surveillance, criminal-justice proceedings, national security, and regulation. The so-called deep state is often weaponized to reflect current orthodoxies. In the past 30 years its operating premises have embraced multiculturalism, feminism, and identity-politics diversity — more or less the sacred tenets that Trump has targeted.

The left's new arrogant heroes and their hypocritical views

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

Most of us do our best to recycle and take other energy-saving actions. We make an effort to live up to the standards we espouse in life. When your mission, however, is to coerce every other American into living the life of a caveman in the dark ages because of “climate change,” you have a special responsibility to take it seriously and behave as though you actually believe what you’re saying and pledging to do to everyone else. Facts do matter, and celebrity won’t protect you from everything.

Our Planet Is Not Fragile

Walter E. Williams, Townhall

Leftists constantly preach such nonsense as "The world that we live in is beautiful but fragile." "The 3rd rock from the sun is a fragile oasis." "Remember that Earth needs to be saved every single day." These and many other statements, along with apocalyptic predictions, are stock in trade for environmentalists. Worse yet, this fragile-earth indoctrination is fed to the nation's youth from kindergarten through college. That's why many millennials support Rep. Ocasio-Cortez.

Assault on America, Day 64: Presidents need a congressional check, not an abusive impediment

Some would argue it’s about time we had a national conversation on executive powers, but the Democrats’ resolution blocking Trump’s emergency declaration isn’t the right occasion. Senator Rand Paul isn’t wrong very often, but this is one position he’d be wise to reconsider.

Dumb And/or Dishonest Liberals Insult Your Intelligence

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Let’s be clear – Donald Trump has no moral obligation to torpedo the slow but steady and real progress he has made with North Korea towards avoiding a war that would send tens of thousands of American soldiers home in boxes simply because the media wants a gotcha moment on camera. Diplomacy is not pretty, and it must pain the Warmbier family, but there are tens of thousands of American lives at stake and if Trump is willing to swallow hard and say what he must to save them, then God bless him for it.

The Left’s Racist Insanity

We see in the debate over whether Will Smith is dark enough to play Richard Williams that the Left’s long-term effort to divide America along racial and ethnic lines is rapidly reaching its logical conclusion in which “colorism” is now to be added to race and ethnicity to become a dividing determinant.

Assault on America, Day 63: Only in Democrat- land is calling someone ‘decent’ a downer

Common sense indicates President Trump doesn’t have much to fear from Joe Biden or any challenger in 2020. Whenever a presidential hopeful must explain why he called someone “decent” to his potential backers, it’s not a harbinger of electability. Such is the dilemma of Democrats today.
