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.

When Joe Biden Is Suddenly Creepy

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Biden is leading in many polls, and that's a problem for the radicals who perceive that he's not leftist enough. He's not perceived to be as leftist as Sanders. He's not perceived to be as leftist as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. He may rate a 99 percent on the left, but it is looking for 103 percent. The No. 1 "journalism" objective in 2020 is beating President Trump. They are clearly seeking to remove the biggest obstacle to an American socialist revolution. Democrats who don't march in lockstep may be yesterday's news.

The return of a familiar hypocrisy among Democrats as they defend Biden

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

We have never seen him kissing male supporters on the mouth. We don’t see him sniffing like a dog on the street at the hair of another man. The issue is not his intention, it’s behavior that we all know is wrong and inappropriate. What we should be concerned about in this case and so many others is the fact that this went on for so long, allowing someone like Joe Biden to excuse it in his own mind as acceptable. Here’s a newsflash I thought unnecessary for the 21st century: It’s not what the perpetrator is thinking, it’s what he’s doing and what the women being targeted are experiencing.

A Bad Idea For Ohio And A Terrible Idea For America

No Republican has ever been elected President without Ohio, and Ohio has furnished eight Presidents with Ohio roots – all Republicans. So why the Buckeye State’s Republican-controlled legislature and Governor would want to dilute their state’s Electoral College votes via the Democrat proposal to bypass the Electoral College is a complete mystery to us.

Assault on America, Day 92: Why Conservatives cower in shadows at today’s liberal colleges

One can only hope free speech conditions improve for young conservatives on college campuses, and President Trump will do everything in his power to make sure of it. In America, no one should fear for their reputation or safety simply by identifying themselves. What is this, North Korea?

Assault on America, Day 91: Joe Biden just the latest creep calling the Democrat Party home

Chances are Joe Biden’s inappropriate conduct won’t derail his chances in the Democrat primaries, but there’s no doubt he’d emerge as damaged goods heading into the 2020 general election. A #MeToo driven party like the Democrats would be better served by staying (far) away.

How bad does border have to be for Democrats to admit it's an emergency?

Byron York, Washington Examiner

More illegal crossers are staying in the U.S. than in the days of Clinton and Bush. Yet Democrats steadfastly refuse to recognize that the situation constitutes an emergency. Instead, they accuse Trump of making the whole thing up. They call it a "fake emergency" and a "manufactured crisis" and every possible variant of those terms. And they reject the idea that adding barriers on the border will decrease the number of illegal crossings. Will Democrats recognize the emergency at the border as real, not fake, and not manufactured?
