America’s Long History of Rejecting Dual Loyalty

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

What defines us, said Joe Biden, are the “enduring principles in the Constitution, even though we don’t necessarily all know them.” But if these principles, of which many Americans are not even aware, says Joe, are what define us and hold us together, then what is it that is tearing us apart? Is it not our differences? Is it not our diversity? “Diversity is our greatest strength!” we are ever admonished. But where is the evidence for what appears to be not only an inherently implausible claim but a transparently foolish and false one?

Assault on America, Day 75: Trump veto signals no retreat on vow to drain the putrid DC swamp

President Trump’s excellent political instincts were proven correct as he saved his first veto for the crucial immigration issue. Congress’s decades-long stalling on the wall pushed the problem into crisis mode. Trump’s leadership showed Republicans how it’s done -- but will they learn?

It’s Time For Conservatives To Choose: Fight Back Or Surrender

Derek Hunter, Townhall

Conservatives never return the favor of dragging old quotes or actions into the light, they almost uniformly refuse to call for boycotts. They prefer to “take the high road.” What good is the high road if it leads to defeat? Moral victories are just a polite way to justify losing. Liberals collect scalps, conservatives collect moral victories. This isn’t a battle for local dog catcher, it’s a fight for the future of the country; it’s time for the right to fight back the way they’re being attacked.

Every Time Democrats Talk, I Want To Vote For Trump Twice

George S. Bardmesser, The Federalist

Today, every single Democrat I can name is working overtime to make certain that I will pull the lever for Trump again, and with both hands this time. Trump need not worry about locking down my vote––the Democrats are doing all the heavy lifting. Every time the Democrats and their media allies peddle yet another “end of the Trump presidency bombshell,” I laugh hysterically. If I laughed any harder, people would think I was having an epileptic seizure. I can’t even keep track of half the revelations that were supposed to bring Trump to an ignominious end.

Far Left Anti-Electoral College Plan Building Momentum

Democrats have long opposed the Electoral College because with overwhelming margins of victory in high-population states like California they could dominate future presidential elections based on the popular vote, so they have concocted a plan to try to bypass the constitutional amendment process.

Assault on America, Day 72: GOP & Trump need women--and everyone else--to win big in 2020

Debate continues as to the best way to expand the GOP’s “big tent,” but it definitely won’t come through pandering to any specific demographic. Republicans would gain a lot by following President Trump’s example and standing for something and keeping promises. The rest will follow nicely.

Facts Don't Favor Socialism

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

As the Democrats careen to the left (and over a cliff), it should not be surprising that their allied "fact-checkers" are running alongside them, trying to "correct" any negative impressions. "Be wary of politicians crying socialism," warned Washington Post "fact-checker" Glenn Kessler recently. Kessler cited President Trump, who said in his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference, "Socialism is not about the environment. It's not about justice. It is not about virtue. Socialism is about only one thing: It's called power for the ruling class."

More displays of fraud from Democrats

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

In assessing these politicians, Americans have two options: Democrats are either the most incompetent leaders in the history of the country, losing interest and walking away from two evil, corrupt men (Trump and Kavanaugh) who hold incredible positions of power. Or the more obvious choice: All these accusations (like those against the Covington Catholic High School kids and actor Jussie Smollett’s imagined “MAGA Country” attackers) were false from the start, revealing a political and media elite that see the nation as a horse to ride and abuse until it drops and dies.

Snopes Veers Far Left: Smears Tennessee Star And Promotes Bizarre Conspiracy Theory

Snopes.com lost a lot of credibility by covering for Far-Left radicals like Nathan Phillips, but it completely jumped the shark in the article “Hiding in Plain Sight: PAC-Connected Activists Set Up ‘Local News’ Outlets” and managed to smear The Daily Caller and the innovative state news sites The Tennessee Star, The Ohio Star, The Minnesota Sun and Battleground State News all in one article.

The Two Americas Of The #2A

The Democrat Party’s radical attempts to infringe upon the liberties guaranteed by the Second Amendment is rapidly creating two systems of gun ownership; one in states where the letter and spirit of the Second Amendment is honored and one where state governments work to undermine it, if not repeal it.

Assault on America, Day 71: In Bernie and AOC’s Democrat party, radical is the new normal

If the definition of “radical” is “a person who advocates thorough or complete political or social reform; a member of a political party or part of a party pursuing such aims”, it definitely describes today’s Democrats. The Bernie and AOC-led opposition is for real -- and playing for keeps.

The Democrats Have a Race Problem

Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

Quite simply, Democrats have doubled down on their left-wing identity-politics message and, in the process, further alienated the kind of white voters who helped Trump beat Hillary in 2016. Democrats are so intent on appealing to immigrants and minority voters they will tolerate insults to Jews, a constituency that voted for Clinton by better than a 3-to-1 margin in 2016. Democrats and their media allies have done everything in their power to demonize the nearly 63 million Americans who voted for Trump in 2016, and what does that foreshadow for November 2020?

Have the Democrats finally gone too far?

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Democrats have no real plans, and yes, absolutely yes, they are way out of bounds in their fanatical reactions to Trump. They assume that a majority of the public hates him as much as they do, and that ruthless, endless assaults on him, his children and business will yield political gold. Of course, my belief that Dems are going too far could be the minority view. Polls suggest the nation is split almost exactly in half over Trump, leaving fewer and fewer swing voters up for grabs.

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.
