Delusional Democrats lash out at Trump -- again

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Perhaps it is not exactly “presidential” of him to wallow in questions about the House speaker’s sanity. But, then again, it is far less presidential — and enormously damaging to the Republic — for Mrs. Pelosi and other high elected officials in the Democratic Party to make up outlandish claims to slur the president. All the while, using it as a pretense to refuse to get any actual work done. If you find all of this hard to follow at home or — more likely — simply do not give a flying crap, then you are not alone. Nor are you crazy. You are not the one who has lost his or her mind.

The Path to Impeachment, Littered With Bad Intentions

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

The left and its media allies are demanding more subpoenas, and Trump is growing more defiant. And if Pelosi continues to argue that impeachment is not justified now, the anti-Trump sentiment in her party could turn against her. The left's ultimatum: Lead, follow, or get out of the way. Impeachment is how a democratic republic does regicide, the dethroning and beheading of a sovereign like England's Charles I. For the left, Trump's fate is decided. The only lingering question is whether proceeding with impeachment now is premature for the progressives' cause in 2020.

Dems Ignore the Voters on Impeachment

David Catron, The American Spectator

Democrats badly need a new narrative. Regardless of what they are hearing from politicians in safe seats, pundits who want a juicy story, and billionaires with more money than sense — impeachment is a loser for the Democrats. If they continue to obsessively attack the President they will wreck their party just as Ahab destroyed the Pequod, and Trump will survive relatively unscathed. So, if the Democrats want to lose the 2020 presidential race as well as yet another short-lived House majority, they should keep ignoring the will of the voters.

No, Nancy. It's the Dems Who Are Engaged in a 'Cover-Up'

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

At this moment, since we know there was no Russia collusion, the big "cover-up" is the provenance of the Mueller investigation itself. And some of that, at least, is about to be revealed, as the Democrats are no doubt aware. The inspector general report on the FISA scandal is about to come out, followed by various investigations supervised by William Barr. No wonder the beehive is going crazy and Nancy was forced to channel Nixon with the "cover-up" card. It was an obvious ploy and a sop to the growing impeachment-crazy juvenile socialist wing of her party she knows to be self-destructive but can do little about.

Stop The Nomination of Far Left Attorney Michael Bogren For Federal District Judge

Michael Bogren wants to overturn the most important religious liberty case of recent years -- the Masterpiece Cake Shop decision -- and impose the homosexual and transgender agenda on believers. Please call Senator Josh Hawley’s office (the toll-free Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to thank him for standing for religious liberty and to urge him to put an indefinite hold on the Michael Bogren nomination.

Assault on America, Day 142: Memorial Day means honoring the American flag, not dissing it

Memorial Day is a time when we silently give thanks to those who are no longer here to receive it, a day when saluting the flag and paying homage to the values our country represents is of paramount importance. America is made of inspiring stories of personal achievement -- let’s all be thankful.

Two scenarios on Trump-Russia investigators — and neither is comforting

Sharyl Attkisson, The Hill

As the investigations into the Trump-Russia investigation proceed, it’s not too difficult to figure out a few of the theoretical starting points. 1. They knew. One possibility to be considered is that top Obama administration officials knew all along there never was any real collusion or crime at play, but they manufactured the false Russia premise in order to justify their political spying. 2. They didn't know. If the Obama administration officials who insisted that was the case are not corrupt, then they collectively suffered from one of the most historically monumental cases of poor judgment in U.S. intelligence history. Whether they knew or whether they didn’t know, the questions seem important to answer.

Trump Is Right To Play Hardball With Dems

“Bipartisanship” can’t be a one-off arrangement; Democrats must recognize President Trump’s legitimacy and debate the details of legislation in good faith, or President Trump is perfectly justified in refusing cooperation with them on infrastructure or any other issue.

Assault on America, Day 141: 2020 will be more than an election -- it’s for the soul of America

No one can accurately predict which candidates will do well in certain states next year. There are just too many variables to pin down voter attitudes this far out. The only certain thing is the 2020 election will feature a historic battle between left and right for the soul of America. Everyone ready?

Personnel Is Policy: Conservative Star Ken Cuccinelli To Join Trump Team

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Rumor has it that Ken Cuccinelli will “coordinate the administration’s immigration policies.” Whether that will be from the White House or from the Department of Homeland Security has yet to be revealed. But wherever Ken Cuccinelli’s office is located physically, Ken will be a vital addition to the Trump team.

Assault on America, Day 140: College Board steps in it with adversity score algorithm scheme

“Adversity scores” will only accelerate the decline of our culture. Bad things happen when we intentionally downgrade the brightest, smartest and most intelligent to cater to those who are not as bright, not as smart, and who didn’t study and work as hard. Don’t accept the insult sitting down.

What the Dems Can Learn From Down Under

David Catron, The American Spectator

The possibility that the Australian election would produce a victory for the Liberal-National coalition was missed by the pollsters and the Western media for the same reason they never imagined Trump would win. They don’t understand that, given a choice between expensive utopian schemes and creating an economy that will permit them to provide for their families, most people (including Aussies) will vote for the latter. There’s a message here for the Democrats, if they will listen. If they don’t, they will regret it next year on Election Day.

Assault on America, Day 139: Spineless wimp Mitt Romney leads DC swamp class with gusto

No one ever said American politics was full of principled leaders, and Mitt Romney is perhaps the worst jelly-spine wimp in Congress today. Romney’s turning out to be every bit as frustrating as conservatives thought he’d be -- just think what would’ve happened if he’d won in 2012.

Assault on America, Day 138: Trump trade policy won’t let China dictate how we shop, live or eat

Donald Trump meant what he said when he chose “Make America Great Again” as his campaign mantra four years ago. Decade upon decade of feckless trade policy had a big hand in causing the U.S. to slip in competitiveness around the globe. With Trump in charge, we’re seeing a drastic change for the better.

Mueller changed everything

Byron York, Washington Examiner

From now on, the Trump-Russia affair, the investigation that dominated the first years of Donald Trump's presidency, will be divided into two parts: before and after the release of the Mueller report. Before the special counsel's findings were made public last month, the president's adversaries were on the offensive. Now, they are playing defense. Without a judgment that a conspiracy — or collusion, in the popular phrase — took place, everything else in the Trump-Russia affair began to shrink in significance. If Democrats could still claim that Trump and Russia conspired in 2016, they would still have the upper hand. But after Mueller, that claim is no longer possible.

Rashida Tlaib Reaps the Rewards of Anti-Semitism

David Catron, The American Spectator

Democrats are clearly making a play for Muslims' votes. Ironically, by allowing an unapologetic anti-Semite to preside over the House of Representatives, they have provided a useful reminder of what their party is about. Its congressional caucus includes a sitting representative who refers to Jews as “termites.” Its leading presidential contender is a well-documented pro-segregationist. It boasts a sitting governor nicknamed “Coonman” pursuant to his affinity for donning blackface. And it goes without saying that they have no realistic agenda for the future. The Democrats need another — very long — stint in the wilderness.

Blowhard Democrats Are Green Phonies

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The Democratic Party at the moment seems to be in a knockdown, drag-out fight for who can be the greenest of the green and push us forward to a brave new world propelled exclusively by solar and wind energy. Only the strongest (i. e. most slavishly devoted to renewable energy at all costs) will survive. Bernie and AOC are currently beating Joe Biden over the head about this. Poor Joe is frantically shoring up his "environmental" credentials. But those who've tried renewables (like Germany) discovered it doesn't work. I doubt this would mean much to true believers like Bernie and AOC, but the rest of us might pay attention.

Assault on America, Day 135: Which 2020 Democrats will join Alyssa Milano’s sex strike?

Search efforts didn’t reveal whether any of the 2020 Democrat presidential hopefuls signed on to Alyssa Milano’s call for a nationwide “sex strike” -- but they all side with the abortion-on-demand cause behind it. Just when you thought American politics couldn’t get any screwier…what will it be next week?

Assault on America, Day 134: As Bernie avoids touting socialism, 2020 Dems pick up the slack

It’s understandable how Democrat presidential candidates hope to set themselves apart from the others by dissing on President Trump, his record and his policies. But when push comes to shove they’d better provide facts to back up their claims. Bernie Sanders and cohorts aren’t making the grade.

Assault on America, Day 133: The best way to guarantee a 2020 loss for Trump is go to war

Donald Trump’s shown a remarkable ability to manage his political affairs in such a way to accomplish great things, shore up his base level of support and give himself a very good chance at reelection. How could it all change on a dime? How about being ensnared in another war. Don’t do it, Mr. President.
