Assault on America, Day 160: Biden honeymoon about to be buried under avalanche of facts

Now that the real work’s about to start in the 2020 presidential race it’s clear Democrats will have their hands full trying to figure out how to treat Joe Biden. The media is quick to highlight all of Biden’s supposed advantages, but when his flaws start hitting the light of day, watch out.

The Old White Men Leading the Democratic Race

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

As long as Bernie holds onto the votes he has, he prevents any candidate of color, any woman, or any fresh new face from amassing enough strength in the polls to get within striking distance of Biden. Bernie is thus today a de facto ally of Biden. He holds too few votes to take the nomination from Joe, but sufficient votes to stay in the race through the early primaries and deny any other Democrat a clean shot at Biden. As of now, there are two lanes to the Democratic nomination—the centrist-moderate lane Biden occupies almost exclusively, and the left lane where Bernie leads but is being challenged by Elizabeth Warren.

Assault on America, Day 159: How damaged would things be today if Romney won in 2012?

Whether it’s Democrats or certain Republicans (like Mitt Romney) it’s clear Americans will be dissatisfied as long as the establishment mans the government’s levers of power. President Trump shows no let-up in his drive to drain the swamp -- but he’ll need many more liberty-loving helpers to make it a reality.

William Barr is asking questions the media don't want asked

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

As Barr said spying is appropriate if it’s “adequately predicated,” and it’s unclear whether the spying on the Trump campaign was. Barr is old enough to remember when liberals did not take government legal or intelligence agencies’ word that spying on an administration’s opponents was justified, when they did not attack those who questioned it as unpatriotic. He may be amused that such doings are self-righteously justified today. But it’s good that he’s willing to ask questions most of the media doesn't want asked, to determine how the Obama law enforcement and intelligence agencies set about spying on the opposite party’s presidential campaign.

Massive Victory For Religious Freedom Over Obamacare Contraceptive Mandate

In a sweeping victory for religious freedom, that the media has refused to cover and Google has all but hidden from search results, a federal court in Texas permanently blocked the federal government from enforcing the Obamacare “Contraceptive Mandate” against any employer or individual who objects to the provision of contraception on religious grounds.

Assault on America, Day 156: Trump bashers’ conduct defies apples to oranges comparison

It’s extremely hard to compare today’s political predicament to those of the past because there’s never been a president quite like Donald Trump and Democrats of today are a breed apart from their predecessors. Impeachment will happen -- or it won’t -- and life will stay putrid and stagnant in the DC swamp.

Dems Revise History Regarding the 19th Amendment

David Catron, The American Spectator

Today’s Democrats desperately hope that most women voters don’t know the real story of how the 19th Amendment came about, and are counting on the media and our government education system to prevent it from being told. They know that, if the truth about the roles each party truly played in the women’s suffrage movement, they will be deprived of yet another phony talking point. If that happens, the Dems may have to face the prospect of discussing their pathetic record. Meanwhile, anyone inclined to support the party that passed the 19th Amendment should vote Republican.

Assault on America, Day 155: Thank God our fighting men had big guns on D-Day, 1944

Liberals aren’t interested in a “national conversation” on guns. They only want to confiscate them while scoffing at the argument that the Second Amendment guarantees your right to protect yourself. Blame the gun -- it’s the liberal thing to do. It makes liberals feel useful and the gullible and uninformed actually follow along. Nonsense.

Why I'm Never Going Back To California

Calfornia's Democrat-controlled government spends its time crafting laws to jail people for using the wrong pronoun while the obscene condition of downtown Los Angeles has become an international disgrace. Mountains of rotting, oozing, stinking trash line skid row alleys while football-sized rats pop their heads out of the debris like they are in a game of Whac-A-Mole.

Assault on America, Day 154: 2020 confirmation battle would make Brett Kavanaugh’s look tame

Few issues would engender more interest and energy than a Supreme Court vacancy during next year’s presidential campaign. Should one occur, the public battle would certainly make history. Mitch McConnell was correct to say he’d move forward with confirmation hearings… but would the nation survive?

Assault on America, Day 153: Since when does equality mean some are more equal than others?

Perhaps we’re fortunate prominent liberals like Taylor Swift keep highlighting the absurdity of their causes. The “Equality Act” is the most egregious recent example of a politically correct mindset gone bad. Those who truly stand up for “equality” will remember what the word actually means. Why is there no middle ground?

The Cost Of Amnesty For Illegal Aliens

We urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Representative (the toll-free Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044), tell your Representative to vote NO on H.R. 2820 and H.R. 2821. Tell your Representative giving amnesty to illegal aliens and adding obligations of $35.1 billion to the deficit, while returning only $3 billion in new revenue is a bad deal for America.

Assault on America, Day 152: What would happen if liberals boycotted every pro-life state?

Pro-life state legislatures should be commended for pushing the envelope on the human rights issue. As liberal challenges to abortion restriction laws mount, the Supreme Court will decide. Here’s thinking Hollywood actors’ and producers’ absurd boycotts won’t accomplish a thing.

Viguerie's Prediction: 'Obsession' with Trump could destroy Democratic Party

Chad Groening, OneNewsNow.com

Richard Viguerie thinks the Democrats' obsession with Donald Trump will do serious damage to the Democratic brand. "The average American is concerned about their jobs, their community, and national security – and the Democrats aren't addressing any of those issues," the political pundit argues. "The more obsessed the Democrats become with impeaching the president [and] driving him out office, the more disconnected they're going to be with the voters." "It they're not careful, they're going to really disconnect with the American people and perhaps go the way of the Whig Party back in the 19th Century," he offers.

Trump Has Become the Democrats’ Great White Whale

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

The Democratic establishment has become something like novelist Herman Melville’s phobic Captain Ahab, who became fatally absorbed with chasing his nemesis, the albino whale Moby Dick. The great white whale once ate part of Ahab’s leg, and he demands revenge — even if such a never-ending neurosis leads to the destruction of his ship and crew. So far, Trump seems to have escaped all of their efforts to spear and remove him before the 2020 election. Trump, like Moby Dick, seems a weird force of nature whose wounds from constant attacks only seem to make him more indestructible and his attackers even more obsessed with their prey.

Democrats Tee-Up Bills To Grant Amnesty To Drug Smugglers, Prostitutes And Gang Members

We urge CHQ readers to call your Representative (the toll-free Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044), to say you oppose amnesty for illegal aliens, and demand that they vote NO on H.R. 2820 and H.R. 2821, the Democrats’ latest proposal to grant amnesty to gang members, prostitutes and other aliens no rational government would admit to our country.

Assault on America, Day 149: Distraught Dems out of options as impeachment dreams dwindle

Democrats’ dreams of impeachment aren’t helping to win anyone over. Robert Mueller’s pathetic impromptu press conference this week didn’t reveal anything new, either, and time’s running out for Trump’s enemies to make something stick. Sooner or later voters will pay attention… what will they see?

Assault on America, Day 148: Grandstanding Dems should personally embrace illegal aliens

The American elites are completely out-of-touch on most things but never more so than with illegal immigration. Those holed-up in ivory towers show little concern or compassion for folks who must live with the epidemic of issues aliens bring with them. Perhaps it’s time the snobs embraced the problem on a personal level. Would they learn?

Assault on America, Day 147: What does Beto -- or any Democrat -- know about farming & trade?

Up until recently the 2020 Democrat presidential race featured a bunch of candidates saying and doing everything they could to attract attention and boost name recognition. Now it’s almost time for the Trump bashers to get serious… Brace yourself for a lot of crazy stuff in the coming months.

Assault on America, Day 146: If Democrats stay in power the earth might not last 12 more years

Anyone who looks at today’s political gridlock and thinks it’s the system’s fault clearly isn’t seeing the true picture. One party wants to push through reforms as fast as they can write them and the other hopes nothing ever gets passed. Nobody wins, but the American people certainly lose... big time.
